Bears On The Prowl

Bears On The Prowl

The market hit we sustained on August 24th 2015 should have served as a wake up call.  Starting on the 25th we experienced a bearish scenario that has lasted 6 to 8 weeks. 

The Bears are out in full force looking for their next opportunity.  The first sign hit when the price of oil began to plummet 10 months ago and, as a result, gas prices in US began to slide down below $2.00 a gallon. Savings from that drop didn’t lead to the anticipated increases in consumer spending or capital expenditures by businesses.  In addition, wages in US and the rest of the world have remained stagnant so we are now in a deflationary environment!

bearsFor additional context, take $CAT, the largest manufacturer of mining equipment in the world.  They have lost 33% of their stock value in just the past 12 months. On Thursday it gapped down over 6% with 4 times the average daily volume!  Is this because they’re terribly run company, with sub par products?  Of course not!

$CAT is only reacting to what is happening in the countries that they do business in. This was just one more confirmation that the market was headed for a bearish outcome in the coming weeks.  This subject actually came up for discussion at a private event I co-hosted with a colleague last weekend and it led to a great conversation on global demand.  If you would like access to a recording of that event, let me know!
