In my analyses in end-2018, the broad markets especially the banks and index stocks were a buy on fear, and I had analysed that all markets will recover sharply especially in the US -- the strongest markets in the world. It is all enacting per preempted. After the shakeout, there is now a fast +50% profits for all macro-flow funds flow practitioners who had bought BoA on the fear, a speed faster than what I had anticipated, suggesting massive strength in the markets.
The current deliberate gap-up in light green will not have any intention to be covered, so as to inflict the maximal pain on the majority of the markets who had shorted on bearish news and bear market thoughts of conviction (remember, I had taught that news are stale by the time they are out). Enjoy the popcorn as shortists worldwide will help push the markets to new historical highs -- with their fast mounting losses.
