Powell Plummet! The Issachar Fund is about 67% invested and concerned! Junk bonds are trading below their 50-day moving average, indicating investors have lost their risk appetite and the market may be headed lower. I added a small junk bond short ETF as a hedge against further stock declines. Issachar owns stocks in the oil, gas, coal, solar...

Time to Hold, But! The Issachar Fund is about 67% invested, but indexes are weak! The Russel 2000 index of small-cap stocks broke out above its 200-day moving average (DMA) two Fridays ago, and it looked like the S&P 500 index of large-cap stocks would follow suit after $1 trillion of new spending was passed.

The Issachar Fund is sitting patiently in Cash, waiting for lower-risk opportunities. The S&P 500 index dropped nearly -12% from 6/7/22 to 6/16/22 (7 days), then rallied about 12% (29 days) into the 4,177-congestion area of resistance on Friday. The NASDAQ 100 rallied past tight double-top congestion areas on below-average volume, so I expect...

Rolling Over! The Issachar Fund has remained in Cash since June 9th, 2022! Issachar has been in Cash about 70% of the time this year. That is not the norm, but we are in a bear market (down -20%), and it could get worse in the next 3rd and final wave of selling. The indexes rolled over from an oversold rally after hitting resistance on Friday, and...
