The market is under pressure this morning due to the missile launch by North Korea. Fact is; we’ve been saying in these pages for the last couple of weeks (here and here) that there’s been a slight change in character in the market, the North Korean missile is just something we can blame.

Unlike previous times when the market sold off we did not see a V-bottom nor did we see an uptick in stocks rebounding hard after the sell-off this time around. As you can see in the chart below, anytime we had a spike in 1-month new lows we typically had a day with a lot of stocks going up 4% or more immediately after, that was not the case this time around. Overall, breadth has been slow to rebound, unlike previous times.

The indices are below their 20-day moving averages and set-ups are scarce, act accordingly.

$DVAX $GRUB $NEWA $PLUG are the stocks of interest on the long side for me today if and only if they can get through yesterday’s high.

We live in a world in which we are bombarded with information, tweets, blogs, etc., content is the new salesman, content is the new marketing, content is the new networking. With information being so readily available, bloggers try to differentiate themselves with their writing skills, volume, and consistency, putting out blog posts to meet quotas. We are seeking to stand out from the crowd by showing performance, by taking all the information and seeking alpha, that’s the sole purpose of the blog. It won’t always be pretty; it’s never easy, and performance is spotty, but we seek superior risk-adjusted returns, not notoriety for our writing skills.  If this is something you can relate to, then this blog is for you.
