Weekend Market Update May 12, 2023
This was the title of the market update written on March 24, 2023. Very little has changed since then. Stretching the view out for almost a year doesn’t help much.
SPY close May 17, 2022 = $408.57
SPY close May 12, 2023 = $411.59
The market is doing its very best to exhaust its opponents. In the words of Brian Shannon,
If they don’t scare you out, they will wear you out.
That’s what many feel like now. The tiresome cries may sound something like this.
If the SP500 could just get over $4200…
If breadth would just improve…
If it wasn’t just 9 or 10 stocks holding up the whole market…
There is only one option. Adapt or die.

Too much trading in the wrong environment leads to mounting losses. Losses of capital and losses of mental stamina.
So what can you do?
Wait it out and hold your positions
Identify that that market type doesn’t fit your approach and then trade a more suitable style
Get away and wait until there is a resolution
Whatever your choice, it will require patience.
