Optical Illusions Back in Play

The opticals ( fiber- optic component makers) have seen rotation within the group for a while now, with leadership alternating in an endless game of musical chairs. On the back of Finisar's earnings rally from last night, it is worth noting the former momentum darling perfectly held where it should have for bulls on the weekly chart, below....

The Best Time to Buy Snapchat is When There Are Filters in the Street

We have largely eschewed the notion of fooling around with SNAP much since its IPO, mostly due to the lethargic price action and overall trend down.  Today, SNAP is off by more than 4% and acting poorly as I write this, yet again as the stock comes down to test its $17 IPO level.  I will say this: When the DrudgeReport features a...

Bad News for Disney

Disney seems to be under distribution, and I do not mean it is distributing one of its feature films to movie theaters across the country.  Instead, observing the daily chart, below, DIS seems to be undergoing heavy selling by institutions, as seen by the heavy and steady sell volume bars on the bottom pane of the chart.

The Bernanke years as Fed Chair are beginning to fade away now, as Janet Yellen continues to slowly tighten. At one point, Dr. Bernanke could seemingly do no wrong in the eyes of markets, as his easy monetary policies made even Alan Greenspan blush.  "Don't Fight the Fed," is an old Wall Street axiom considered perhaps too general but often...

A Dovish Raise Looms

The Fed is expected to raise rates this afternoon, at the bottom of the hour to be precise. However, given that this FOMC will feature Fed Members' forecasts plus a Yellen presser, we could easily see plenty of dovish language to couch any rate hike, in effect keeping markets satiated.  We have been tracking the rate-sensitive sectors of late,...
