Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

From my vantage point, plenty of people could use a break from nonstop politics and political arguments. Some comic relief, therefore, may be in order.  As a result, I suggest viewing the now-twenty-five year old,  Wayne's World (1992), which should not be dismissed out of hand. We never want to become snobs when it comes to films and...

All the News That's Fit to Pin

Despite a gap-fill down to the open on the S&P 500 Index's ETF (SPY), the market currently has the look and feel of pinning a variety of issues as options expire. Indeed, while bears were rooting for a broad-based "sell the news" reaction to Inauguration Day, we may very well need to wait until next week for a better gauge as to how this...

Peaceful Transfer of Power in a Range

On this Inauguration Day it is surely ironic that the major indices, mired in this historically compressed range, seem to be effecting a peaceful transfer of power between buyers and sellers on a daily basis.  In other words, on a day-to-day basis we have seen rather peaceful alternating action, with little in the way of follow-through one way...

Big Evening Blue Before the Big Day Tomorrow

Long-time readers will recall, back in 2010, looking at IBM (or "Big Blue") in a bullish light, ready to break out of a multi-year base higher. At a certain point, though, namely in 2013, Big Blue began to slow down and display the hallmarks of a textbook long-term head and shoulders top. This top coinciding with plenty of self-described value...

Bend the Boat Like Beckham

It is often said in markets that the trend is your friend until it bends in the end.  Small caps sure seem to have been "bending," but not breaking, in recent sessions. The higher beta issues in the Russell 2000 Index have lagged their senior counterparts at various junctures over the last few weeks, prompting bears to call for an imminent...

Quick Plays to Pass the Time

Despite gaps higher in Nasdaq leading issues like NFLX and TSLA, the major indices are uninspired so far this morning. As I write this, I see the averages all flipping mildly red, as broad-based buying has on indefinite hiatus.  With Inauguration Day tomorrow, the market may very well be transitioning from a phase of pricing in the potential...

Is Under Armour About to Get Sonned By Nike?

It is an interesting topic, one which I am sure Under Armour's January 31st earnings will shed more light.  But note UAA breaking below $30 today, a short idea we had for Members the last week or so, while Nike is off to a decent start in 2017. NKE may be emerging from a multi-quarter falling channel, while UAA still looks ripe to head on...
