A Bright Spot from the Storm

Into this bounce in crude oil, a bullish divergence in favor of energy bulls dating back several months can be seen in the outperformance of HYG, the ETF for high yield corporate bonds. The HYG is filled with plenty of firms in the energy complex. But to be precise, as I write this energy-related firms make up more than 13.5% of HYG.  Thus,...

Silver Not as Obsolete as Silver Spoons

Given the frenzy in the cryptocurrencies, it may very well be easy to dismiss the precious metals and miners as no longer attracting much interest even when the U.S. Dollar slumps. However, I would not be so quick to dismiss the precious complex, as they will always have their skeptics regardless of other alternative investments.  Beyond that,...

A Sunny Market for Shady Characters

The "cryptocurrency" market created plenty of buzz over the weekend alongside recent weakness in the U.S. Dollar, as the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum continue to rally throughout 2017.  In lieu of focusing too much on speculating in those given markets, let us take a step back and consider that it is a way to express at least some loss of...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

I was fortunate enough to be living (studying and working) in Florence, Italy, during the spring of 2001 when Hannibal (2001) was released. I saw the film in a theatre there with plenty of expats. But being in Florence, where the film is set for much of the story, certainly added some flavor to the experience. Looking back, that time period...

All the News That's Fit to Fade

We finally saw markets react this week to the heavy and steady news flow, as political allegations both here in the U.S. and Brazil rocked equities on Wednesday. There is a colorable argument to be made that markets were simply looking for any old excuse at this point for a shakeout, given the low volatility drift higher we have been seeing for...

Do You Want to See Some Magic?

Come to think of it, it would indeed be a masterful trap by Mr. Market for crude oil to stage a false breakdown and subsequent sharp upside reversal under the shadow of the Trump/Comey/Brazil headlines this week, with plenty of large Wall Street players off in Las Vegas at the SALT Conference, to boot.  Indeed, with just a week before Memorial...

Is the Market Still on Cloud 9?

A decent bounce in U.S. equities today helps to calm the nerves of traders in the near-term, especially in light of the Brazil drama overnight.  However, the S&P 500 Index is currently dealing with its flattening 50-day moving average, and small caps are now operating below a declining 50-day. If stocks are still on Cloud 9 and dip-buyers are...
