It’s amazing when you think about it.
The stock market is having a historic year. The S&P500 is up over 20% so far, with one of the best months of the year still ahead.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average is just 2% from new all-time highs.
And the Nasdaq100 got off to its best start to a year in history, and has already returned over 46% for 2023.
What’s odd is that with all this good news, investors are still sad.
It’s hard to quantify sentiment data, but I think we do as good of a job as anyone else out there.
When you aggregate all the data and include a variety of different polls and indicators, somehow investors are still extremely pessimistic:
I mean, how is this even possible?
The crisis you were promised never came.
The recession was a lie.
Any of these wars they tried to scare you with didn’t impact the stock market negatively at all.
So here we are with the Volatility Index down to 12.
It’s pushing new 4-year lows.
How are you taking advantage of this?
With the $VIX at 12, what’s your trade here?
Options are cheap.
What are you doing about it?
We put on a new trade yesterday in the world’s largest Chemicals company.
Remember how they told you only 7 stocks were going up?
Lol was $LIN included in those 7?
I really like this trade, especially this time of the year.
