Something Wicked This Way Comes!  Or at least MAY be coming.

Let’s start with the all-time record net short VIX positions by speculators.

Not a good sign at all.

Then we have the S&P500 Triple Top (blue line) and Gator Jaws (S&P500 Index relative to the Citi Economic Surprise Index for the USA).

Then we have another gator jaw: S&P500 index relative to S&p500 adjusted EPS.

While VIX is begin shorted, the 10-year Treasury Note is really being net shorted. Gold, on the other, hand is net long.

My former MBA student at University of Chicago, Kevin Smith of Crescat Capital in Denver, has this nice interview on trading the end of a cycle.

In other words, something wicked this way comes. Maybe.
