Wall Street: “Nothing to see here, move along!”

There’s a particular meme-worthy scene from The Naked Gun that comes to mind right now.

After a car crashes into a fireworks factory, there are explosions everywhere. As the spectacle rages in the background Lt. Frank Drebin assures the crowd, “Nothing to see here!”

That’s basically the banking sector right now.

In the short term, it really does seem like the crisis is over.

A remarkable 11 banks have moved to back up the regional bank First Republic.

The market picked up speed yesterday as we see a minor rally in advance of the Fed’s meeting next week.

Some are suggesting the Fed might even cut interest rates – though I doubt it.

What’s really happening is that we’re seeing the System pull out all the stops to boost confidence.

On the surface, things seem fine.

Underneath, we’re seeing a minor crypto boom as well as a rise in gold and silver… with silver even approaching $22 an ounce.

That suggests a lot of people out there aren’t buying the Narrative that all is well.

Remember, in trading, always run to the sound of the guns…

And when The Powers That Be tell you there’s nothing to see, never believe them

Keep Moving,


The banking system as we know it is in danger of collapsing —
The stage is set for a meltdown capable of making the $2 TRILLION lost in 2008 look like pennies.
The first stage of financial Armageddon is unfolding in front of us…
And if you don’t want to be one of the millions of Americans crushed in the fallout…
You need to act immediately.


Finally, a day with a continued trend and far less chop. These are so much easier to trade and we really nailed it today in the Trade Command room. After a lackluster start, it was nothing but up. Honestly, I have no idea why the market rallied.”

“Maybe comments from Secretary Yellen or Biden’s promise to prop up the banks. Truthfully, I could care less. As long as we’re making profits, the market can do whatever it likes.”

“This is not a bull market recovery, that much I would bet on. So be very careful of falling into a bull trap. Volatility has been off the chart, especially in the bond market, and that never bodes well for stocks. But however bearish an outlook you might have for 2023, you have to play what the market gives you.”

“Just be careful, especially if you put on any positions that run into next week’s FOMC rate hike announcement. No one knows what’s going to happen.”

“As you build out your watchlist, it’s worthwhile to take a look at nuclear energy stocks. They seem to be the flavor of the day and consider getting in on the run.”

“Take a look at the BWXT daily chart above:”

“This stock has been on fire and it looks ready for another leg up.”“After consolidating for the past couple of months it’s breaking out to the upside and you should be able to find a long trade with the proper analysis.””Just remember, when markets crash they tend to pull down everything. Keep any bullish positions on short time frames and watch your allocation size.”
