The market has become one giant trade.
That trade is:
- Long US stocks
- Long the $USD
- Short Treasuries
- Short Gold
In terms of speculative positioning, as Hedgopia has noted hedge funds are net positioned in precisely these positions with the exception of Gold (net long 96.6 futures contracts).
Moreover, investment advisors are piling their clients into precisely these positions.

So Hedge Funds and investment advisors are positioning their clients in precisely the same trades (except Gold). All we need now are individual investors to follow suit of their own volition and we’ve got one gigantic lopsided market.
According to Trimtabs since the Presidential election on November 8th, individual investors have put $93 BILLION into stock-based ETFs.
This is more than 150% of the money investors put into those same ETFs during the ENTIRE year of 2015.
This kind of extreme buying is only seen during market tops. With investors now “all in” who is left to buy?
Stocks are already broadcasting what’s coming next.
