Bonds: Repulsive
The big Fed announcement/press conference/dot plot update isn’t until tomorrow, but let’s take a quick look at how bonds are doing in advance of the big day.
The Lonely Island
All the Nasdaq bully boys have been abandoned on an island pattern. It’s game over, fellas. Your bull market is dead.
Nasdaq: Dems Da Breaks
Ostensibly, the reason for the NQ weakness is that Facebook is catching a lot of heat. I seriously puzzle over Facebook.
Focus On Manufacturers
This weekend I decided to do things a little differently, and share some charts that were in a related industry, this time, manufacturers.

With the financial markets seemingly careening from one crisis to another, it's vital for today’s investors and traders to have an historical perspective on market performance during times of great turmoil. In this book, Tim Knight provides an exhaustive analysis of financial market behavior prior, during, and following tumultuous events since 1600.

Tim Knight has been charting and trading since 1987. His first stock trade was, in fact, on October 19, 1987 – the day of the crash – which perhaps goes a long way explaining his disposition toward bearishness. He has been involved in personal computers since late 1979 and, starting at age 16, began writing a couple dozen books about using and programming computers. His most recent writing has been focused on charting and the history of financial markets, and his newest book, Panic, Prosperity, and Progress, was published in February 2014. He has been running Slope since March 29 2005 and has, during that time, written more than 15,000 posts on the blog.
