How To Play The Coming Blow Off Top

March 27, 2018

As I noted yesterday, stocks still have some life in them.

Calling the precise top of a bubble is all but impossible. This is particularly true when you have a White House administration that openly admits it views stocks as a “report card.” Rarely does the one being graded have the ability to manipulate the results of his or her “report card.” In this case, the White House does.

Having said that, my current blueprint for what’s to come is as follows:

1)   The Tertiary Bubbles burst (has already happened).

2)   The Secondary Bubbles burst (coming later this year likely during the summer).

3)   The Primary Bubbles burst (late 2018/ early 2019).

The Tertiary Bubbles were bubbles based on particular investing strategies in stocks. I’m talking about “shorting volatility” and “risk parity” fund strategies.

That bubble has blew up in February, erasing years’ worth of gains in a matter of days.

Investors, still crazy about risk, were willing to see this as a “mulligan” and piled back into stocks (the Secondary Bubble). Given how bullish sentiment remains, I believe we’ve going to see a final push higher for a “blow off top” in stocks running into this summer.

This “blow off top” is based on the parabolic rise above the long-term channel that has determined stocks since the 2009 low. Investors, emboldened by this development, will push stocks to a final parabolic move higher.

At that point, THE top will be in.
