High Stakes Game of Kiss and Tell

Bears made a sneaky move within the last hour or so, slowly walking the market down before sell volume accelerated.  The IWM, ETF for the Russell 2000 Index small cap stocks, illustrates a "kiss" off the declining 50-day moving average. Earlier today, bulls were seemingly in control of a market which had plenty of reasons to sell-off. However,...

The Market is Negotiating with China

Despite the Shanghai sell-off last evening, U.S. stocks are acting reasonably well today, even in the face of weakness in healthcare and biotechnology issues, too. Still, if that type of weakness cannot roll this market over below declining 200-day moving averages on the major indices, perhaps that is a signal to tread lightly with any short...

Healthcare Kabobs on a Skewer for Bears

The HZNP and VRX post-earnings sell-offs stand out in an otherwise choppy market early on. As crude oil flopped around after the opening bell, so too did stocks, with the S&P 500 featuring buyers and selling duking it out at the 1950 level.  Regarding the big healthcare names, we know HZNP VRX have been broken charts for a while now, despite...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

Tomorrow night will mark the 88th Academy Awards ceremony, an annual tradition which has, frankly, lost a bit of the mystique it once had. One main reason for the loss of mystique is the general migration of top of the line talent from the big screen to television/streaming series over the last decade or so. But beyond that, Hollywood in...

Best Rally in a Supporting Role

For the rest of the session into the weekend, we are keying in part off the SPY 10-minute chart, below, illustrating the significance of the $195.50 area since the open today.  As we speak, crude oil flipped red and is considering staying there as many parts of the market are seeing the effects of a narrow, sluggish trading session set in via...

Quality Control Friday at the Office

After filling the opening gap on the S&P 500 Index, stocks meandered through the morning and are trying to wake up again as we speak. Some issues like CMG MCD SBUX are lagging, as are emerging markets, while financials and biotech catch a bid.  The action below the surface is fairly muted, and not yet some type of broad-based vicious short...

A Slice of European Humble Pastry Pie

Calling the near-term direction of the Euro of late has required a large slice of humble European pastry pie, perhaps even more than equities, as the Euro has been resilient and featured a vast array of wicked short squeezes in recent months. We have not been playing the Euro much since last summer, but we are still monitoring the overall...
