A Tale of Two Social Losers

TWTR and YELP have likely trapped as many retail longs in recent quarters as any two underperforming names in the market. There have been too many instances when both have been declared to be too beaten-down to go down any more. And yet they have.  To be sure, both firms could easily be bought out any day now, which is of course a risk to...

You Like That FedEx Rising Wedge

Despite an exuberant bounce last week, the transports as a whole remain under pressure.  Recall that the Dow Jones Transportation Average topped out one full year ago nearly to the day, after Thanksgiving 2014, and has not looked back since.  Instead of discernible bottoming formations, the likes of UNP continue to remain persistently weak....

Action on the Other Side of the Street

The small cap issues in the Russell 2000 Index continue to outperform this morning, staying green as I write this despite a sharp downside reversal in biotechnology stocks. Apple is also an early outperformer, with $120 still being the hurdle to clear and, more importantly, hold over. Meanwhile, other names like EBAY are having trouble holding...

Sunday Matinée at Market Chess Cinemas

Great film. Great soundtrack.  That is how I describe  Dances With Wolves (1990), Kevin Costner's western epic which is twenty-five years old now.  Costner has made plenty of other films in his career, but this one has his fingerprints all over it more than the others, including the backstory about his friend Michael Blake (who wrote the...

Everything You Need to Know About Finance and Investing in Under an Hour; William Ackman

While there is a certain schadenfreude felt by many regarding esteemed hedge fund manager Bill Ackman's losses this year, notably in his VRX long position, losses are an integral part of any speculator's life. This is a reality to be faced, confronted, even embraced in terms of taking stop-loss and position sizing discipline head-on, as we do...

Greasy Russian Cabbage Soup

Select issues continue to perform reasonably well today, as we close up shop momentarily for the weekend. In particular, small caps, transports, and biotechs continue to outperform. But it is worth noting that IBB IWM IYT XBI all currently operator below their 200-day moving averages. So with meow than three weeks to go before Christmas, we...

The Nefarious Activities of Chad

If the breakout highlighted below on the daily chart of CHAD, the bearish China mainland ETF (essentially inverse to ASHR), holds true, then China may be starting a fresh leg lower. A new leg down in China is not something I believe too many are expecting at this point, given all of the wide-ranging assumptions that crude, global commodities,...

Happy Thanksgiving from Market Chess

On this Thanksgiving Day, I am grateful for many things: Close family, true friends, and good health, above all else. Without those, life loses a certain richness and depth.  I am also grateful for the broad, market mechanism regarding the way in which the internet operates in an open society. The wonderful thing about this day and age of...
