                Yes, I feel bad for leading you astray. My account is also hurting big time. I was way over weight on O&G. I knew the gravy train would end eventually, but not as quickly as it has. I have been caught off guard.

                I unloaded a bunch of my underperforming O&G yesterday. Well, it has all been underperforming lately, but I kept some of the larger, more stable ones.

                I'm still holding my BOIL. I really am at a loss to explain why the price of US NG has come down so much so quickly. The Freeport explosion is one reason, but can't be the only reason. Freeport accounts for only 20% of our LNG export capability. And Europe is still starving for LNG.

                Everything I read from the "experts" said NG and LNG demand would increase due to the extraordinarily hot summer, plus the shortages in Europe.

                They predicted US NG would go to $12 MMBtu. It made it above $9 for a while, but now it is getting close to $6.

                    I've predicted multiple bottoms and have been wrong every time.

                    I predicted natural gas would rebound.

                    I predicted Arch Manning would not commit to Texas.

                    My track record sucks.

                      Listened to Gunderson's Thursday and Friday shows this morning.

                      He thinks some of the higher P/E stocks that have declined drastically since the middle of last year have hit bottom and may lead the move back up.

                      He specifically mentioned PayPal, ServiceNow, Snowflake, NIO, and Teladoc.

                          He has been bashing Cathie Wood for over a year. I feel like all of a sudden he wants to buy some of her beaten down stocks.

                          He has been touting SARK (inverse ARKK). Maybe now if finally the time to buy ARKK?

                                      If I'm reading this correctly, looking at the US today (June 29th) in central time:

                                      6 am: Mortgage application data for the week ending Jun 24th - rose by 0.7% vs 4.2% the previous period.

                                      7:30 - revised Q1 GDP

                                      some other stuff

                                            Why is wheat down if Russia is keeping Ukraine from supplying the world? And Biden said that the coming food shortages are Putin's fault. Seems like that would drive prices up. I don't know much about it, but low supply should drive prices higher right?

                                            I get how you are going to feel pain if prices are way down, but I don't understand why they are down.

                                                Makes me think of the movie "Trading Places" where the Duke brothers try to manipulate the commodities market. I'm sure there isn't any of that going on.

                                                  It's called pump and dump. The fundamentals supported a fair share of the price rise while speculation added to the mix, but once the larger players were happy with their gains the selling occurs with likely some shorting to boot.

                                                    probably moved from crypto to grain.....what's the next move?

                                                        I owned WEAT, SOYB and CORN ETFs. Sold for a small profit. Could have cashed out at a higher price, but the downturn happened quickly.

                                                          I'm very bearish right now. Got fed up with the volatility so have gone mostly to cash for the moment.

                                                          I don't think inflation has been tamed. 2Q GDP is projected to be more negative than 1Q. Earnings reporting season begins in a couple of weeks. I'm expecting more companies to warn that the second half of the year will not be as good for them as initially projected.

                                                          I feel like I missed the boat on taking more inverse positions earlier in the year, but maybe not.

                                                            Bummer about the market tanking. Same crap goes on in the crude/fuel pits as well.
                                                            i sold 18k bushels on a forward contract .....was concerned i wouldn't harvest enuf to fill it...
                                                            my average price was almost $11/bushel....i got enuf to fill the contracts and had about 5k bushels more..
                                                            i know a few farmers here that had contracts down at $7/bushel.....i didn't get the top but i did a lot better than $7...

                                                              The coming weakness is an eventual bear market cure

                                                              We don't typically celebrate a weak economy. In an ideal world, you want stronger economic growth joined by stronger earnings growth. This is not an ideal world.

                                                              We have weakening economic growth that is going to be joined by weakening earnings growth. That should invite some inflation relief, which is good, because it might lower the market's temperature with respect to rate-hike fears. It isn't indisputably good, however, because what the stock market will be left with is weak earnings growth.

                                                              The good news is that there have been some signs of improvement in the stock, bond, and commodity markets recently. The sobering point is that it has been driven mainly by an expected bad economic outcome.

                                                              Eventually, the economic weakness will be the cure for this bear market, because it will invite more credible earnings estimates that provide a better determination of true value that lends itself to a reduction in volatility and more conviction behind buying efforts.

                                                                Of course. All bear markets end eventually and things go up from there.

                                                                What would really be nice is if they could pinpoint the date when the bear market ends.

                                                                Also, the best way to end inflation is to increase supply, not destroy demand. But the Fed has no control over supply, so they destroy demand with interest rate hikes and force us into a recession.

                                                                Although, interest rates are still historically low. When I graduated from college in 1982 they were over 10% if my memory is correct.

                                                                      In electrical engineering school we were taught about the reaction of systems to an impulse input.

                                                                      The result is called the dampening effect - oscillations of highs and lows that diminish over time.

                                                                      Covid was a demand impulse in the negative direction, followed by a recovery that introduced a negative supply impulse. We're now entering the next phase of negative demand. It will take 5 y;ears or so for the dampening effect to diminish to steady state, so we'll go through a number of recovery and recession cycles before the normal upward trend resumes.

                                                                      That is assuming no other black swan events.

                                                                      My 5 year estimate is just ball park. It could be less, or it could be more. Most likely more.

If it turns out we've already been in recession for the past year, we can anticipate it ending sooner than if we're just heading into it now. I'm counting on the former.

                                                                          I've been told that the textbook definition of recession is two straight quarters of negative GDP growth. Q1 2022 was negative, and Q2 is projected to be even more negative.

                                                                          Quarter over quarter GDP grew approximately 5% quarter over quarter from the end of Q3 2020 through the end of Q4 2021, except Q3 2021, when it grew by only a small amount.

                                                                          Also, the stock market peaked in mid-November 2021 and then began a sharp decline.

                                                                          Corporate earnings growth was good for most of 2021 and even Q1 2022. I expect Q2 earnings will be decent, but I also expect many warnings about the prospects for Q3 and Q4.

                                                                          Also, there was a pretty consistent decline in unemployment during 2021, along with consistent job growth.

                                                                          But if by "the past year" you mean since July 1st, 2021, you might be spot on. I feel like we are definitely in one now, and I think it will get worse before it gets better.

                                                                                            Another one you might want to look at if you are interested in shorting or buying the next dip - SEDG. Their chart looks very much like the chart of ENPH and they are a similar type company (solar power).
                                                                                            i don't like the sedg chart...
                                                                                            but if it pops thru that $295 level and holds...might be worth a second look

                                                                                              haven't heard any news.....but it dropped 36% off its high so funds might be looking to pump it back up......for another dump

                                                                                                    I assume you think it will break out above that number in the near future?

I think we'll see an overall dip in the market on that news. I'm holding off on new purchases until I see what happens on Wednesday.
