Tom DeMark: "Sell The World" And Soon, The US

Tyler Durden's picture


Because there are still some traders who adhere to such old normal traditions as charting and technical analysis (because apparently the FOMC committee sits down each month and observes Ichimoku clouds, RSI indicators and Bollinger bands), it is probably notable that one of the most respected chartists, Steve Cohen's favorite technician Tom DeMark, is now uniformly bearish on virtually all markets around the world which have triggered a sell signal in his studies, and is about to drop the axe on the US as well where a "Daily 13" signal is imminent. The caveat, of course, is that in a world in which fundamentals haven't mattered in years, why should technicals?

From a FT article this morning;

"...US equity funds drew in $18.3bn in 2013’s first full week of trading, making it one of the busiest weeks on record as investors took advantage of the positive market conditions in the wake of a compromise deal on the US fiscal cliff.

Thomson Reuters’ Lipper service said the week to January 9 was the fourth largest for net inflows of equity funds since it began calculating weekly flows in 1992.

The data, which include exchange traded funds, come as global equities have reached multi-year highs..."


Investors are bailing out of bonds.  An article I saw a few days ago said Buffett and Soros are selling a lot of their equities.  Not sure if they were just looking for an end-of-the yaer tax break.

I'm noticing amazon's prices on products are rising and I see Target is starting to price match amazon also. Target is putting in WiFi so you can look at comparable prices online and then you can show them at checkout to get the better online price applied to your purchase. bad news for AMZN? now if Target would just start stocking ammo and 30 round mags.

Nobody is going to be stocking 30 round mags in the very near future.  Biden is to report back to "that guy" on Tuesday.  Like the outcome isn't already pre-determined, right?  But it makes for a good show and gives Biden something to do.  I figure the Executive Orders will be issued within a week or two after that.

A 9-10 round limit on magazine size is such a no-brainer you can pretty much take it to the bank it will be covered in the first "Assault Weapon Ban" E.O. off his desk.

Good move for Target's survival if they can streamline supply chain.   Best Buy ignored and didnt respond fast enough to Amazon at their peril.

I think the future of retail will be some level of supplier consignment to stock retail stores.   Similar to parts suppliers to auto companies where the parts inventory are stocked by supplier on shop floor and invoiced as soon as they are used.   Big retail will probably go this route more and more.

Secondly, the barcode scan/wifi/QR mobile scan will be the standard for people to scan the code and see an informational video on the product, and get access to reviews.   Retailers will sell much more stuff with an informed consumer.

Why do pricks like you keep bigging up the Jews? Im going to stop calling them jews and start calling them Super-jews, Omni-Jews...they are parting the proverbial fucking waves every time some prick opens their mouth. Do you know why they are on top of their occupations and vocations? Because they are neurotic and paranoid as fuck, they are trying to compensate for all manner of things, the main one is that people keep trying to burn them and fill their jewish lungs full of poisonous gas. People keep trying to blame them for they’re lives being shit...its a virtuous circle for jews; the more that pricks want to snuff them out in Auschwitzian wet dreams, the more they will put measures in place to see it never fucking happens! ergo, if you want Jews off the top spots….stop trying to imply that they should all be massacred.

The problem is, therefore... The future... If, due to your 'explanation' as to their PARANOID behavior, they push that reaction envelope too far... & Keep stealing peoples money... I can all but assure you that they'll WALK THEMSELVES into the proverbial ovens of the future... It won't be me that put them there (because I'm trying to give fair warning here)... It'll be at the hands of people who are far less tolerant than myself...

Oh yeah, "it wont be you that puts them in the ovens", it wont be you that tells everyone they are stealing peoples money through methods they are too stupid to understand, and it wont be you that lights the proverbial match, it will be people far “less tolerant “of them stealing all the money. Have you fucking heard yourself lately? You're a stupid cunt of man.

"Poor taste"? What the fuck does that make you... nonchalantly blasé about extermination? You’re a stupid poisonous cunt, and you should close your mouth surgically.

Has nothing to do with deep thinking, stop trying to turn this pathetic skirmish into some kind of pro/anti chin stroking debate. Heh, and when you talk about "prosperity, equality and freedom"(talk about muddying the waters?); yourself being a moaning yank, i would gladly concede you know next to nothing about atleast two of the three. Considering that the majority of the planet lives off a $1 a day, you can guess which two i'm hinting at. Freedom? equality? Freedom to kill and freedom to be $$$ more equal than others? Makes sense. There has never been a breeding ground more fertile for fascism. Youre a case in point.

You insist that my mouth should be closed surgically... [and then accuse me of fostering 'facism', making ME your personal poster boy]...

Unfortunately, any deep-down discussion of [Central Banking] involves the Jewish question. We cannot honestly discuss the subject without revealing—and commenting on—the fact that the founders of [Central Banking] were Jewish. ... These are facts of history over which we have no control. But we are faced with the very serious problem of how to reveal these facts without being labeled—and treated—as "anti-Semites."

What he really meant was that he was faced with the very trivial meathead problem of stating "there is no way to be anti-semite without sounding anti-semite". The same way as the clan try to be anti-nigger without sounding anti-nigger... its just so much of an oxymoronic argument. If truth be told, there cant actually be an argument between us because nothing is ever actually stated; its up to you to know the bounds of your jew hate, and up to me to figure where the bounds lie. I dont see that as an argument, I see that as a pain in the hole.

The FED's job is to hide that event as best they can. Another job is to set up traps to rip the face off of any investor who bets on collapse.  If you want to win that bet you'll have to outlast the entire power structure.  If you are a trader, you won't make it.
