What Trade War Tuesday – Markets Fuggedaboutit Already

MAD About the Trump EraWhat, us worry?  

1, 2, 3, 4 Trump declared a trade war and then announced he's going to have fun in the sun at the G20 with his pal Putin but also plans to see China's President Xi in late June and force him to accept US terms of face SEVERE CONSEQUENCES.  This is the mindset of a 75 year-old racist schmuck who has a 1950s view of China and thinks we just won WWII and get to dictate terms to all the inferior races – not the rational strategy of a United States President!  

Nonetheless, the markets love it when Trump lies to them and we're up almost 200 points pre-market after being down 600 points yesterday so YAY!!!, I guess…

If you remember, way back on Friday morning, in our PSW Report, I told you "it's more likely we're consolidating for a move down" and we put up our anticipated levels, which all failed yesterday but we don't count Mondays (and the volume wasn't very strong either) so TODAY is the day that matters and I'm going to highlight the pre-market (7:30) positions so we can see where we are:

  • Dow 25,200 is the 5% line and the bounce lines are 25,450 (weak) and 25,700 (strong) 

 

  • S&P 2,860 is the 5% line and the bounce lines are 2,875 (weak) and 2,890 (strong)
