The Great Bear Case

The gamma squeeze, “cubic function” look to the last rally has given me great pause. I have spent a good deal of time thinking about it. I have shared my basic conclusions about it with you already, namely, that it may very well turn out to have been a finishing move, rather than a beginning move (I’ve discussed that here, for instance). But I am now increasingly concerned (excited?) that it may have been the finishing move.

And in fact, in answer to the question “Why on Earth did we go up like that?” I think the answer is essentially this: I think that was the total, utter, final capitulation of the bears.

I am going to run through a whole bunch of things in this article, just laying out pieces of evidence and observations. It is not my intention to sell you on the bear case; rather it’s a truth-telling expedition, in my opinion. I believe strongly in the bear case here, and I will share what I believe is the truth of the market. But it’s not my intention to persuade you, rather, to express what I feel is true.
