Written Michele ‘Mish’ Schneider and Wade Dawson
Now that we are one day into the new year, there are 2 pieces of advice we can give you.
First, is to learn a strategy-and then become a specialist in that strategy.
For example, why not pick phases? We love them. Mish wrote a book on them. And, once you understand the phases on a daily and weekly timeframe, your trading will vastly improve.
Secondly, learn to follow bonds. Sure, short-term bonds work well as do the 20+ year long bonds.
However, we are all about the high yield high debt junk bonds.
We basically use the bonds to determine risk on/off. And we find that quieting the noise, especially with the dreary forecasts for this year, helps us trade a lot better.
The chart of HYG (or JNK if one prefers) has been an excellent guide to the short and long-term market moves. It also keeps us out of harm’s way during the chop.
In June 2022, HYG bottomed. So did the market. Then, HYG had a phase change in July but could not quite get going enough to clear the 200-DMA. And so, the market sputtered.
Then the sharp reversal candle in October gave traders a good bottom risk point. The ensuing rally took the price right up to the December high and the 200-DMA.
Currently, HYG sits right under the 50-DMA. It also closed green on a red day in the indices.
That tells us that risk appetite remains regardless. HYG outperforms the SPY, and the momentum had a bullish cross while the momentum trades above the moving averages.
And most importantly, as experts in phases, it tells us to watch that 50-DMA carefully.
