I've attached 2 interesting images for a quick mid-week update:
S&P500 Index Daily, 10-mth
1) Reference to the attached S&P500 Index (SPX) Chart (see Point A), you will notice that Monday's (24 Jan) price action simply touch my downside support/target at 4240+/- before staging a massive reversal to close the day positive.
If you are a close follower of mine, you may have noted that the Blue zone on the Chart was already shown in my 18 Oct 2021 writeup! Ref: https://www.thom-ng.com/post/did-the-bulls-wrestle-the-ball-back-to-their-court . And in case you didn't notice, this support line 4240 is also the very same resistance line that SPX broke out from back in late Jun 2021. See Point B. . This is the concept of Resistance becoming Support in Technical Analysis. . In effect, it also tells you Mr Market apparently has 'memory', and is pretty good actually!
2) Ref to the 2nd image from a Financial Times article titled 'Warren Buffett closes in on Cathie Wood as tech stocks tumble':

With due respect to both famed investors, it seems like the story of 'The Tortoise & The Hare' is a pretty good analogy to their very different investment styles, namely Value & Growth.

But more importantly, me being a Contrarian would like to think that such featured stories in FT or BusinessWeek may just potentially mark a turning point soon for Ark actually. To be clear, I'm not saying Ark is gonna hit new highs in 2022, but a rebound may be due, what do you think?
Btw, check out this 2007 research paper titled 'Are Cover Stories Effective Contrarian Indicators?':
Interestingly, the last line of the paper's Conclusion says: '..Consequently, we conclude that if an investor is short the stock of a company that is the subject of a negative cover story, the publication of the story indicates it is time to cover the short position because the stock has hit bottom..'
Oh well, food for thoughts on a Wednesday night!
Live Long & Trade Well.
