The One Big Thing

In case you missed it last week: Market Thoughts: When Is It Safe To Buy?

Big US Banks kicked off Earnings Season Tuesday and so far Cash and Profits are high. Even $DB has had a nice 5-day bullish move, but from where it moves next should be of particular interest to Bulls and Bears. There is the matter of a large Monthly Wedge it needs to break out of to ‘escape’ its sideways chop this year: $7.62 was the low week of 12/28/18 and today’s close was $7.85.

DB has fallen from roughly $160 at its height in 2007 to a low of roughly $6 this year. This Wedge I’ve been tracking on the Monthly time-frame is getting very compressed, and from compression and digestion comes explosion and direction. It’s time: Place Your Bets.

From corruption to criminal misconduct, $9/hr offshoring to financialization, this article and the ones linked in it reveal risks to putting too much faith in a business that faces many downside risks:

No one who knows anything about anything believes Boeing is anywhere close to being out of the woods and some who know a lot think the road ahead could lead to bankruptcy court.”
