Bonds and utilities. He knew a push from Central bankers was coming about 6 months ago wanting higher rates. Recent data indicates that some of it bears higher rates, but some was more wishing for animal spirits. For the last 3 days, bonds and utilities kind of crashed, which is pretty significant. That sort of confirms the 6-month watershed. Around July/August, it was noticed that relative to other sectors, bonds and utilities were starting to get weak. The price proceeded to go higher as we had a couple of data points that were rough in September/October, but in the last 3 days, there has been a real fall off. This push for higher rates is eventually going to weigh on things. For now, it's full steam ahead on everything for pro growth.

Seasonal Investing. The best time for seasonal investing is the 3 weeks starting in mid-December. That is the strongest time for the S&P 500 and the TSE. During the last 27 periods, the TSE Composite has gone up 23 times with an average gain of 2.4%. That period is the end of tax loss selling pressures. There is also diminished institutional activity where companies close operations in the middle of December.

How do you use Bollinger bands? Bollinger bands give you a range for a security to trade within 2 standard deviations. Most stocks will trade within those bands over a long period of time. This stock is an interesting one because, for a long period of time, it has been coming way down. Bollinger bands have been getting tighter and tighter and then, all of a sudden the news came out that they were going to reduce production and uranium oxide immediately went up 15%. Using Bollinger bands can be very useful except when there is specific news that comes out on a company like this, which can have a significant impact. Seasonally, it has done very well from November right through until April of each year. It hasn't done that for the last few years. This year, we might have something going for us, and it looks like the stock could expand beyond its Bollinger bands for a period of time.
