The -10% or so decline in February seemed to catch a lot of investors off guard, but it wasn't nearly as stimulating as the -15% declines in Aug 2015 and Jan 2016 when 80% of stocks were in a downtrend.
But, keep in mind after the majority of stocks are in an uptrend or downtrend, they eventually reverse the other direction. Increasing participation is good but eventually, it can reach an extreme.
Stock market breadth is improving as more stocks are participating in the uptrend as evidenced by 73% of stocks above their 200 day moving average. It also shows the broad participation up until February with 83% of stocks were in an uptrend.
At this time ten years ago, the decline in stocks was just getting started. By now, #LehmanBrothers was failing and the stock market had declined over -20%... but the market dislocation got a lot worse. Note the 2% between the $SPY and the S&P 500 Total Return Index.

It amazes me to hear an advisor constantly speak against the dirty deeds of Wall Street banks, but then charge their clients for just passive exposure to market risk/return through "global diversification". As if...

Time Series Momentum means the direction of assets own absolute price trend is a future predictor of its future trend. Applying time series momentum is a simple method for trend following. asymmetryobservations.com/definitions/trโ€ฆ
Breadth is improving. 73% of S&P 500 stocks are now trading above their 200 day moving average which is improving pariticpation in the uptrend. Said another way - there are fewer lagging stocks now. Well see if it contnues.

The more adaptive 50 day was already showing good participation with about 73% of $SPY stocks participating in the uptrend.

A fairly broad advance today, Energy, Industrials, and Utilities lagged, the rest gained.
So, trend following traders would have to use the EMA, which is more adaptive, but WOW! the distance from the current price to even the 20-day exponential moving average shows the extreme of the volatility expansion.
Trend following using a moving average as an exit for risk management requires enough historical price data to get the indcator moving. For $TLRY there isn't enough history to get it going for a SMA :)
The exit, not the entry, determines the outcome.
"What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.โ€ The enthusiasm for pot stock crypto/bitcoin reminds me of the 90's. Most of the highest stocks aren't around today to easily show their charts, but here's one I remember:

The radical volatility expansion shows the tremendous risk in pot/marijuana/cannabis stocks. Apparently, the demand is coming from a positive DEA announcement and limited shares available, but the risk is a supply of shares available later: vox.com/business-and-fโ€ฆ
There seems to be a euphoria about the legalization of recreational pot/marijuana/cannabis in Canada... Cannabis company Tilray $TLRY stock has got high like the .com stocks in the late 90's.
$TLRY radical intraday volatility expansion. Tilray is a Canadian cannabis/marijuana company. Tilray stock gained -50%, then declined -50%, then gained -43% from the low...
Tilray $TLRY, the Canadian cannabis/marijuana company stock had an interesting day yesterday...
Rising interest rates drives demand for Financials $XLF and selling pressure for Utilities $XLU โ€”
Social media can be an echo chamber, where views we read just reinforce we we alreay believe. Or, we can use it to discover alternative views and broaden our horizons.
It's interesting to see what investment strategies people have done in the past that created good results, but it may also be useful to consider the current conditions and imagine what may do well in the future. #TuesdayThoughts
Stock market weakness today came from Technology, Consumer Discretionary, and Communication sectors.

The most important thing I do to cut losses short is predefining the exit in advance before I enter a position.

People are being asked their opinion of what may cause the next financial crisis and stock market crash who didn't themselves execute well through the last one. ๐Ÿง SMHJ

One driver of the downtrend is gold $GLD and emerging markets $EEM is the rising U.S. Dollar $USD, but the Dollar has reached a point I wouldn't be surprised to see it trend down and emerging markets and gold trend up...

I call this #momentum high and low. Sorting out the leaders from the laggards by relative strength. Only time will tell if the trends continue or reverse. #trendfollowing #sectorrotation
