Today I posted my two-hundred-and-thirty-seventh YouTube video: Sell! Time to Take Some Rally Profits

Today’s topic is: Sell! Time to Take Some Rally Profits. Wednesday’s rally had all the earmarks of a blow-out-the-top rally. Though it wasn’t a huge jump, the markets went up on a goldilocks reaction to stronger-than-expected retail sales for January. The S&P was up 0.28% and the NASDAQ Composite was up 0.92%. The interesting part of this jump is the stocks that saw the big action – not Microsoft, Amazon, or some of the big stocks, but some more speculative things. One of them was Quantumscape Corporation (NYSE: QS), a tech company that is in the process of creating a solid-state lithium battery- though it’s not expected until 2025. They reported losing less money than they expected, and their stock shot up 32% in one day. Wayfair (NYSE: W) is up in the last month by about 58% and was up 10.4% yesterday. These are both examples of a big jump in 2023 and an even bigger jump on a blow-out day. These kinds of numbers are not sustainable, especially with more interest rate hikes from the Fed on the way and an impending debt ceiling crisis. This really is not likely to last too long. If you want to learn more about what I’m selling now, you can go to my latest post on and for a detailed breakdown of what I’m selling and why.
