That's What Doctors Are For 😏

Why would you take your medical advice from social media sites, such as Facebook, when that's what your family doctors are for? 

Whether or not you should receive a COVID-19 vaccine is a private matter that is best discussed with your own doctor (who is familiar with your medical history).

That's what the Biden administration should be recommending and pursuing...not the policing and censoring of 'opinions' posted by every 'Tom, Dick and Harry' on those sites!

By the way, if you're wondering why people may be skeptical of taking a vaccine, take a look at this Twitter thread of past tweets when everyone from Joe Biden to Bill Gates (and, especially, the media) were questioning and/or denouncing it (simply because it was being developed by the drug companies during former President Trump's administration as part of their 'Operation Warp Speed' program)...none of whom ever did thank him for leading this monumental effort to combat this 'frankenvirus.'

SPX: Dead Cat Bounce?

* See UPDATE below...

A bit of humour provided while waiting for the SPX to roll over...

The diverging RSI, MACD, and PMO indicators, as well as the ratio price, on the SPX:VIX ratio are not confirming the rally in the SPX (from June 21)...something I reported on in my post of June 20...so, I'm thinking this latest rally may be a 'dead cat bounce,' and about to turn around. 

However, as we know, markets have a habit of baiting, trapping and surprising.

So, we'll see what happens, and whether traders are at all bothered by inflation data.

* UPDATE July 19...

If the ratio price remains below the 200 MA, look out below for the SPX...the 'dead cat bounce' is playing out nicely with the recent plunge in the SPX.

Major supports sits at 4000 on the SPX...and 100 on the SPX:VIX ratio.
