Rising Disconent Across The Globe

News
Rising discontent, an evolving trend I have discussed for years, continues to hide in plain sight, though are certainly beginning to recognize it. Decades of declining standard of livings have strained individuals and families throughout many western economies. Acceleration of these trends during periods of economic stress and crisis has only served to intensify the bad feeling and aggressive finger-pointing, increasingly observable within both the public and private sectors.

History shows us that finger-pointing and scapegoating are not new human behaviors. While the recipients of the anger, those that see the fingers pointed towards them, change over time, they consistently appear during periods of economic, political, and social stress. Stress is coming. We must fight the urge to point fingers, or millions will die or suffer as result of it.

Love and compassion always guides humanity through to the next level of social and human evolution. Trouble is, ego, self-righteousness, and a few other lousy human tendencies ensure that humanity will likely fail to recognize the path of least resistance it (again).

Headline: Republican candidate charged with assault after 'body-slamming' Guardian reporter

The Republican candidate for Montana’s congressional seat has been charged with misdemeanor assault after he is alleged to have slammed a Guardian reporter to the floor on the eve of the state’s special election, breaking his glasses and shouting: “Get the hell out of here.”

Ben Jacobs, a Guardian political reporter, was asking Greg Gianforte, a tech millionaire endorsed by Donald Trump, about the Republican healthcare plan when the candidate allegedly “body-slammed” the reporter.

Fed Minutes Increasing Prob of June Rate Hike


News
Yesterday's Fed minutes indicated that that most official believe the a healthy economic backdrop warrants higher interest rates. They used the word "soon", which the markets translated as an interest rate hike in June. This interpretation somewhat contradicts Economic Activity Composite's message of economic deterioration within an uptick.

The Fed clearly realizes that interest rates must go higher to ease the strain on America's public pensions.

Headline: The Fed says it'll be appropriate to raise interest rates again 'soon'

The Federal Reserve is set to continue raising interest rates, with most officials seeing further tightening as appropriate "soon," minutes of its May meeting published Wednesday showed.

As expected, the Federal Open Market Committee left its benchmark interest rate unchanged in May, and markets anticipate that it would hike again at the June meeting. CME's FedWatch Tool reflects an 83.1% probability that the FOMC will increase the target rate to a range of 1% to 1.25%.

05/19/17 Reading the Tape $NFLX

Reading the Tape
Traders read the tape - ticker tape in the old days to determine the recent buying and selling pressure. Here lies the importance of volume. It's easy to spot a large buyer or seller when the volume is light. Big buyers usually enter before big moves.

Jesse Livermore read the tape and never fought it.

Of course there is always a reason for fluctuations, but the tape does not concern itself with the why or wherefore. It doesn’t go into explanations. I didn’t ask the tape why when I was fourteen, and I don’t ask it today at forty…, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator.


While the tape, often triggered by price in reaction or anticipation of the new flow, is triggered by price, it's fueled by force. Volume is the domain of force. Traders/investors must learn to read the force behind the trend.
