Hidden Catalyst

Friday trading saw a fairly robust session with a nice close into the weekend. That told me risk appetite remained fairly robust. Today there is supposed to be the Biden-Xi Virtual Summit.  With US-China relations at a relative low, there are literally no positive expectations for this summit.  And their-in lies the hidden catalyst.  If even a minimal amount of thawing between the super powers I think would result in a sizable positive catalyst.  We’ve documented the huge disconnect between China tech ( BABA, BIDU , JD , KWEB etc ) and US tech after the year long beatdown in China names.  Watch out for any positive news with today’s summit.   I dont think its something you can front run. Simply keep your ear to the wind and be ready.

Coffee hits 7-year high. 

Over the years, FinTwit has taught me you scream out your wins and conveniently forget your belly flops.  Here is a massive win. Followers will remember me bringing $COFFEE to your attention multiple times over the past 6 – 8mo along with the entire commodity complex including the grains and base metals.  Coffee had a monster week being up over 7% and hitting a 7 year high.  And, just to put things in perspective, $COFFEE is still 30% off its high back in 2011.  Don’t give up on the trade!

MetaVerse Stocks

Ran across a collection of Tickers that may benefit from the push toward the MetaVerse.  Might make for a nice watchlist on the topic that can be added to or massaged in the months or even years to come. If you have others, let me know and I will pass along to the group! A great way to engage and contribute to the group’s success!
