No Place to Hide!  Check out my Strategy Video (5 minutes), and let me know what you think!  The Issachar Fund is content in Cash, 100%! The major indexes dropped slightly above the June 17th bottom, and it feels like the bottom will not hold. The S&P 500 is down over -21% YTD, Gold is … Market Update: 09-26-22 Read More »

Please Don’t Fight the Fed/Fundamentals!   The Issachar Fund is comfortable in Cash, 100%! In a Bear Market, almost all stocks eventually succumb to the selling pressure; therefore, I chose to sit patiently on my hands. However, I am stalking junk bonds and emerging markets on the short side. I have seen bear markets like this … Market Update: 09-19-22 Read More »

Bear Market Rally! The Issachar Fund is in Cash, 100%! Natural gas dropped below our sell stop, and junk bonds rallied past our short stop, so both positions were sold. I want to be in the game (offense) when the market rewards us for taking risk and on the sidelines (defense) when the perceived risk … Market Update: 09-12-22 Read More »

Powell Plummet Persists! The Issachar Fund is about 10% invested and very concerned! Junk bonds sliced through their 50-day moving average after Powell’s scary inflation talk two Fridays ago. The S&P 500 index rallied into its 50-day moving average on Friday and quickly reversed lower on heavy volume, a sign of distribution. I believe the … Market Update: 09-06-22 Read More »

Powell Plummet!   The Issachar Fund is about 67% invested and concerned! Junk bonds are trading below their 50-day moving average, indicating investors have lost their risk appetite and the market may be headed lower. I added a small junk bond short ETF as a hedge against further stock declines. Issachar owns stocks in the oil, … Market Update: 08-29-22 Read More »

 Time to Hold, But!   The Issachar Fund is about 67% invested, but indexes are weak! The Russel 2000 index of small-cap stocks broke out above its 200-day moving average (DMA) two Fridays ago, and it looked like the S&P 500 index of large-cap stocks would follow suit after $1 trillion of new spending was passed. … Market Update: 08-22-22 Read More »

Market Update: 08-15-22

The Issachar Fund is about 63% invested in fundamentally and technically sound stocks in the top sectors. I added to our positions because the leaders have been leading the rally. I am seeing a ton of leading stocks breaking out of bases on big volume, which is a sign of institutional demand. I try to … Market Update: 08-15-22 Read More »

The Issachar Fund is about 23% invested in fundamentally and technically sound stocks in the top sectors. The over-bought S&P 500 index is up over 13% since the 6/16/22 bottom; looking for an excuse to correct, but it has not found one yet. The employment report came out Friday better than expected, with more jobs … Market Update: 08-08-22 Read More »

Market update: 08-01-22

The Issachar Fund is sitting patiently in Cash, waiting for lower-risk opportunities. The S&P 500 index dropped nearly -12% from 6/7/22 to 6/16/22 (7 days), then rallied about 12% (29 days) into the 4,177-congestion area of resistance on Friday. The NASDAQ 100 rallied past tight double-top congestion areas on below-average volume, so I expect these … Market update: 08-01-22 Read More »
