Maybe some downside volatility would discourage options traders. 'Twas not to be. Last week, the smallest of traders *increased* their bets on stocks. In a month they have gambled nearly $40 billion on stocks. That's a notional value of ~$500 billion. It's not just Softbank. https://t.co/BEViDztHDR
This rally is ALL tech. While 76% of NASDAQ 100 members are above their 200 dma, less than 40% of S&P members are above their 200 dma. Tech is trying to lift up the index, other stocks aren't participating. This has pushed the gap in breadth to an all-time high. Worrisome? https://t.co/tqMtoc4boA

Some great interviews in this thread https://t.co/PxW6aiPuBj
Insatiable. Incessant. Insane? Small options traders shrugged off Thursday's carnage and added to their leveraged, expiring speculative bets. The net number of calls minus puts bought to open is now TWICE as high as the prior peak in February. https://t.co/cfGMaDggnn
This is stunning. At the peak of speculative fervor in February, small traders bought to open 7.5 million call contracts. This week, they bought 12.1 million. Watch what people do, not what they say. They're full-bore bullish, on steroids. https://t.co/T1v74xq1Of
10 #trading mistakes I did in the past: 1) System hopping 2) No exit strategy 3) Focused on money 4) Ignored market trend 5) Ignored psychology 6) Traded volatile stocks 7) Traded already broken out stocks 8) Too much risk 9) Listed to other people 10) Hope instead of action
Volume spiked in March and is now falling. SPY's volume is now -64% below its 3 month average, while the S&P is under its 200 dma When this happened over the past 20 years, U.S. stocks ALWAYS pulled back over the next 2 months, sometimes *very sharply* https://t.co/BwGU4QOOGe
Thread. Often people come into trading and want results fast. That's really the wrong mentality to have, and personally, I don't teach this in the least. When I had this mentality, I ran into a number of issues and never got to my goal of being consistent.
"The truth is found when men are free to pursue it." - FDR Retail traders are likely finding that the truth of trading is hard, now that they're free to pursue it. And pursue it they have, setting activity records every month. https://t.co/VgmQpScb8o
A big rush into equities - 🤔🤔 https://t.co/7ch2UH7iqi
Berkshire Hathaway subsidiaries sold nearly half a million shares of U.S. Bancorp on Monday and Tuesday. Buffett’s firm now owns a stake of less than 10% in the bank. https://t.co/B7PwUA5LxB
Am not a super fan of his but he is selling ‘everything’, shouldn’t u? https://t.co/HBwlDarNiG
What the smart money is saying: David Tepper: this is the 2nd most overvalued stock market ever Buffett: hasn't made any big investments Druckenmiller: risk-reward in stocks is the worst he's seen Meanwhile, S&P 500 forward P/E ratio is at its highest since the late-1990s https://t.co/DGIM91PDxy
