Last week's price action served to remind us that big rallies and even entire bull markets are driven mainly by short covering. This doesn't happen by accident; Wall Street's quasi-criminal masterminds set short squeezes in motion using...
There was a point last Thursday when virtually all of the hundred or so market symbols I track were 'red' except for the U.S. Dollar Index. This was unusual and unsettling but hardly mysterious, since the dollar's strength was the reason...
How high is the bear rally begun in mid-June likely to go before buyers run out of gas? The 4029.75 target shown in the chart is a logical answer, even if the hubris of billboarding it here could queer its voodoo magic. A run-up to 4029...
