Mother of All Sucker  Rallies Sends Dow 1,000 Points Higher

by Mike Mish Shedlock

Following a brutal four days in a brutal month, stocks staged a massive rally. Alas, it won't last.

The Wall Street Journal reports Dow Industrials Leap More Than 1,000 Points.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average surged more than 1,000 points for the first time in a single session Wednesday, rebounding after a bruising four-session selloff put the blue-chip index and the S&P 500 on the brink of a bear market.

All 30 stocks in the Dow industrials notched gains, as did each of the 11 sectors in the broader S&P. Shares of Amazon.com , Facebook and Netflix climbed more than 8%, while retailers rallied as early data on the crucial holiday shopping season appeared robust. And a nearly 9% rise in oil prices offered a respite for shares of beaten-down energy companies.

Verge of Bear Market?

The WSJ 😈 says the S&P 500 was "on the verge of a bear market". 

I disagree. I claim the S&P 500 is in a bear market.

 

Who's right?

Arguably, we both are. It depends on where you measure from.

The high of 2940.91 as shown in the above chart was an intraday high. The high the previous day was 2930.75. That was also the highest close ever. On a close-to-close basis the S&P only fell 19.78%

Is the WSJ ridiculously splitting hairs? Yes.

About Bear Market Rallies

Today was a typical bear market rally. I posted some charts on December 24: S&P 500 Slips into Bear Territory on Worst Christmas Eve Trading Ever

Yes Virginia, it's a bear market. Expect a lot more days like today, with everyone caught believing "the bottom is in", every step of the way.

The next real bottom will not be in until everyone is totally disgusted with the stocks and gives up. Demographically-speaking it will come at the worst time for boomers.

There was one and only one thing surprising    about today: Trump did not yap about it.

Agelbert NOTE: Mafia bosses, like Trump, NEVER "yap" about things they RIG. When they DON'T rig is when they yap. Trump's 🙊 silence on the stock market massive goosing by the Fed PPT is a DEAD GIVEAWAY that he KNEW the FIX WAS IN. If he brags that he CAUSED IT, the confidence in every stock that went up tanks immediately, so he has no choice but to play the innocent lamb for the suckers that think this rally was based on "fundamentals" and/or Trump's "great economy" (see below).
