By the Book

In addition to the homebuilders, the biotechnology stocks of the small and mid-cap variety housed in the XBI ETF are also sustaining impressive sector rotations today. The price action in XBI, below on the daily chart, is "by the book" (in terms of its recent breakout, backtest, then resumption of the uptrend today in an explosive manner) and...

Quiet Symmetry to These Homes

To follow-up from our analysis last week, the homebuilders continue to quietly outperform today.  Both the XHB and ITB ETFs related to the homebuilding complex are near or at session highs as I write this, while the indices in general are flat and mixed.  Equity bulls continues to pound the table on the idea that sector rotations will keep any...

A Silent Scream from Sotheby's

While far from a premier leading stock, high-end auction house Sotheby's (trading under ticker: BID) has some interesting correlations with the S&P 500 Index when you track the performance going back several decades.  Long-time readers will recall we used to track this correlation previously, full well knowing that all correlations are bound to...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

They don’t make them much better than Clint Eastwood’s boxing masterpiece, Million Dollar Baby (2004)--This one is a top ten all-time film for me.  The underdog boxer (here, a female played by Hilary Swank) being pushed by a tough trainer is nothing new in cinema, as we have seen that storyline over and over again throughout the years....

Foot Locker: Turn That Retail Frown Upside Down

Markets are settling into a bit of a scrum into the weekend, with bears yet to push the envelope off the morning weakness (See: a red VXX as I write this).  One bullish aspect of the action of late would be retail plays finally showing some heart, specifically in the face of yesterday's harsh selling in the sector. Recall how long the retail...

A Simple Test of Violence

As quaint as it may seen, the VIX ETF, VXX, has ben unable to hold over its 20-day simple moving average since Election Day.  To be sure, I am not one to put too much stock in technical analysis of the VXX, since it is, after all, several times removed from equities. Still, the setup is simple, easy to track, and should give insight as to...

It May Be Time for Solars to Finally See the Light

The First Solar reversal today, after yesterday's earnings drubbing, is nothing short of stunning when you consider how accustomed we have become to the usual solar heartbreak.  Nonetheless, when you see a likely close today over $37, a level highlighted on the updated daily chart for FSLR, below, it offers some evidence of a potential bottom...
