What is a Ho-Ho-Ho

The Santa rally is kicking off with a drifting move higher today. The Dow is not at 20,000, but that is not making life any easier for bears who have yet to throw in the towel on their thesis.  I am looking to see if the precious miners can sustain today's bounce, too, beyond a mere one-off move. Indeed, doing so will be a bit of a change in...

Holiday Liquidity Sloshing Around

Volumes are expectedly light into the end of 2016, with plenty of fund managers and traders gone until at least the first week in January. As such, some small cap names become even more prone to wild intraday moves with a general lack of liquidity.  One issue which causes none of those concerns is Alphabet, below on the daily chart. While it...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

One of my favorite Bill Murray films is  Scrooged (1988), which also happens to be perfect for a Christmas viewing. Murray is at his best when he has a bit of a harsh edge to his characters in comedy or comedy/drama genre films. And this film gives him a perfect venue to display his talents against the backdrop of a tough-love Christmas...

Mr. Market Knows if You've Been Bad or Good

Unlike Santa Claus, though, Mr. Market does not much care one way or the other how you have been behaving. In reality, the market is what it is, and is not out to get any of us nor purposefully reward us, either. Personalizing market action and inevitable losses in trading remains a surefire way to get blown off your path.  As we wind down a...

  Driving that train, high on cocaine, Casey Jones you better watch your speed Trouble ahead, trouble behind And you know that notion just crossed my mind "Casey Jones," Grateful Dead    Regardless of your personal politics, it is fair to say that legendary activist investor Carl Icahn has President-Elect Trump's ear on a variety of...

This Will Do for Now

Consistent with a slow week leading up to a major holiday, markets continue to drift despite the ballyhoo about "Dow: 20,000." GoPro is finally gaining ground today on the back of a rumor that KKR is an interested suitor. Regardless of whether the rumor comes to fruition, GPRO is certainly capable of a quick holiday long scalp to squeeze shorts...

Six Degrees of the Baconator

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas trading.  Select beaten-down names, like TWLO, are finally catching a holiday bid today. I am looking to see if others follow suit, such as ACIA LN. For now, the momentum appears to be rather narrow as the indices work sideways-to-slightly-down. NKE is also turning in an uninspired bounce after...

Calling a Bottom to Mysterious Murders and Illnesses Aboard Cruise Ships

It has been quite the turn of events for cruise liners over the last decade or so. Once seen as a higher end status symbol for "holiday-goers," as the British would say, a series of well-publicized outbreaks of illnesses aboard some of the major cruise lines, coupled with some notable husband-wife murders and disappearances, has led to a simple...
