Are equities markets about to run out of steam in the next few weeks?

I am starting to set wide trailing stops on my long stocks positions, also watching possible strong trade in Crude Oil - which direction is too early to tell, but for as long as it is above my magic long term line - it is long.
Otherwise it was quite a boring (trading wise) period after I closed long Natural Gas one month after I called long on Nov 16th 2016 ( net % gain was 25% on position, of course that were contracts, so a tad more indeed) - which I might go long again.

Do not stand under the shoulder of the market "crane"

Call it what you want, but whether it is head and shoulder or less likely rounding top - that /ES bubble is about to pop.

Oil bear is dead?

I would disagree with talking heads and say: “Not yet”
After month long European vacation I am so tired of resting that I need some rest and not even going to post any charts. Take it or leave it. It is land of the free, right?

Is it final shake off of the dollar tree before breakout?

It has been going on for almost a year – dollar has been trading in the range 95-100, I think since Euro, as well as EU, is doomed (never mind Thursday’s jump) – and world’s financial community expects rates to be finally raised in December therefore making sovereign debt repayments much more difficult and will promote inflows into US banks in search for higher than negative European return ….it is that wonderful time again for a new trade – I was on the sidelines since /ES short in September.

‘The Fog of Fascism Is Descending Quickly Over Many American Universities’

“We are seeing a curtain of McCarthyism descend over many college campuses,” said Dershowitz.  “I don't want to make analogies to the 1930s, but we have to remember it was the college students who first started burning books during the Nazi regime. And these students are book burners. They don’t want to hear diverse views on college campuses.”

“When I went to speak at Johns Hopkins University there were protests," he said.  “It was said that because I won’t acknowledge that Israel commits crimes against the Palestinians, I am quote ‘harassing students’ and violating the ethical standards of Johns Hopkins University.”

“By expressing my opinion,” he continued, “I am ‘harassing students.’ This has become a very serious problem not only in American universities, but in universities around the world as well. And it is influencing and having a terrible impact on the education of students.”

“It is the worst kind of hypocrisy,” said Dershowitz.
