My Benzinga’s PreMarket Interview Monday morning, on my first day back in a week post sickness and weather/power outage, was rough! My voice was as shaky as the video! Scroll into min 18:50 in YouTube OR minute 15:30 on Soundcloud clip.



My Benzinga chart: TLT poised. TLT seems to be telegraphing a future rotation from equities into bonds, we just don’t know it yet.

My other Benzinga Chart: DXY.  Trump Tariffs are USD deflationary but what if the Fed is slow to raise rates+they fall on this expectation? It would be USD bounce time. Another possibility: Risk off means currencies catch a bid – the quintessential safety trade. Not what Kuroda and Trump may want but markets will take path of least resistance, especially in a panic!

We made out-sized profits on the last downdraft.  Come Fish With Me in my LIVE Trading Room for custom analysis and receive actionable trade ideas with my real-time LIVE Portfolio Trade Alerts!
