Garden Growing–BOND Q&A XII 10.25.17

EOM Q&A: Garden Growing–BOND Q&A XII 10.25.17

Time to analyze our personal financial needs and/or greed…

With the DOW and other indexes continuing to run, many EOM Members are looking at BOND-MINT-TOTL as a safer-haven for cash.

Why?  Check out their action during previous SPX pullbacks-blue ovals.

Today, I focus on BOND and what I am watching before entering.

Key Points…

1.    Is currently trading with a .49 correlation to the SPX

2.    Previous end-of-the-year dividend runs are highlighted

3.    Previous pullbacks are highlighted with the highest pullback 5.1%, beginning last October

4.    Previous buy signals are highlighted-vertical blue boxes

Action Points….

1.    Note the MACD, CMF, and Slow Stochastic previous levels when buying came in

2.    The last three years the end-of-the-year monthly dividend skyrockets-will it continue?

3.    I will be watching to see when buying comes in to capture any year-end distribution

4.    The previous year-end distributions were not paid until Jan of the next year

BOND is not like other securities.  If we are watching it for a high-monthly dividend-paying safer-haven, Institutional funds are too!

While many want to catch a price bottom and a super-high year-end distribution, picking an exact entry point can be difficult.

Also, any year-end distributions are not usually declared until 1-2 days beforehand, making the entry even more of a crap shoot.

Tomorrow, I feature MINT and TOTL on Friday.

Questions-send them to me at

Enjoy your day!
