My inspiration in this bear market

I'll start things off with one bit of advice. The one thing I learned relatively early was never listen to James J. Cramer. His recommendations almost killed me before I even really got started. I won't go into detail here given that there are plenty of Cramer bashing blogs out there and we don't need another. Let's not get sidetracked here. My point is that his site ( did find me my first market inspiration, namely Barry Ritholtz. ( He has really opened my eyes to many things going on in the market and kept a steady stream of great information on his blog.

My second influence in my bear market style is William O'Neil. Oh yes, the king of CAN SLIM! I have based my shorting style on his book "How to Make Money Selling Stocks Short". Although I absolutely abhor his politics, one can't argue with his investing record.

My shorting thesis is this:

The Macro argument:

  • The economy is slowing down
  • We have high, inflation fighting, interest rates and a hawkish Fed.
  • The yield curve is inverted.
  • Consumer spending will decline in with the rise of high energy prices
  • Housing market is tanking

The Market's history:

  • Previous market leaders go down in flames in the subsequent bear market
  • Cyclical stocks lead towards the end of bull market
  • Cyclical stocks lead the market down in the bear market

I'll be using technical analysis to present my shorting opportunities.

Simple, eh?
