– Really a Head Fake
As I suspected and as I stated in my last podcast at the end of the first quarter, I speculated that the rally that closed out the quarter was really a head fake. When the quarter started, I said you would see a resumption of the downtrend of the evolving bear market, which I believe we are already in.

– Bear Market
Even though technically we’re not there yet because we’re not down 20%, but you can’t get to 20% without first hitting 10%. Although not officially acknowledged, we are in a bear market. Just as often a recession is not acknowledged until after 2 quarters of negative GDP growth, but clearly you’re in the recession for a long time before it’s officially acknowledged. That doesn’t mean you weren’t in a recession before they admitted it, albeit not officially. Similarly, they haven’t proclaimed this bear market.

– The Fed Could Change the Game
There’s one caveat: if the Federal Reserve comes in and changes the game by taking away the rate hikes or launching QE4, then we may never make it to a bear market. But if the Fed continues on its current path and maintains the current pretense, then we are in a bear market and it’s only a question of time before it is officially acknowledged.

– No Real News to Blame for Sell Off
As I expected, traders came back from the Passover/Easter break and started to sell. They came in almost out of the bell; no real news to blame the selloff on. Now they tried to blame it on Trump and the tariffs, and while I agree that tariffs are a problem, there was nothing new over the weekend. Yes, China came out and announced a couple of billion dollars worth of tariffs on some agricultural products, etc, but this was not unanticipated. Anybody who did not think this was coming – c’mon – China could have could have done a lot worse than this.

– Any News is an Excuse to Sell
In fact, the market could have just as easily rallied on the fact that this is such a small response and they could have said, “Oh, this is nothing, it could have been a lot worse!” So the markets could have bought, if they were in a buying mood. But this is a bear market, and so all news is bad news. So, whatever the news is, that’s an excuse to sell.

– Chinese Tariffs on Agricultural Products
But what it does, is it lulls investors into a false sense of security: “Well, the market’s not going down for any reason”, “It’s not because we’re in a bear market, it’s because of the reaction to the news that the Chinese are going to have tariffs on agricultural products.
