Another Split Out Wide

It is usually interesting to see the timing of when some of the volatility ETFs effect a reverse-split, as we are seeing today with a 1-5 reverse split for UVXY (the ultra-long VIX ETF).  As UVXY reverse-splits, stocks are getting hit with the most selling we have seen in this young year so far. We know volatilty has been a tough long for a...

No More Polar Bears Means No More Solar Bears

Beyond the title of this blog post rhyming, I am not interested in delving into any issues related to the science of weather and its relationship to energy sources.  What I do care about is whether it may be time to hold our proverbial nose and buy solar stocks, a sector we have long been bearish on inside Market Chess Subscription Services for...

A Rocky Day at Sea

With multiple swings centered around a Trump news conference, markets are rather rocky today. Unfortunately for VIX longs, the the fact that VXX is up barely 1% as I write this drives home the point that both they and equity bears need much more selling in stocks before we get the look and feel of a market in a true correction.  For now, we are...

The Long View of Merck

Drug giant Merck is up nicely this removing on news of FDA accepting the firm's application for a speedy review of its lung cancer therapy drug.  MRK, like other healthcare titans ABBV LLY PFE, has been dead money, on the whole for roughly fifteen years, giving new meaning to the phrase "paid to wait" with the firm's dividend payments to...

Long Time No Eat

Into the bell, bulls are bouncing back a bit from a mid-afternoon broad market fade. Still, we have not quite gotten decisively bullish resolution from recent index ranges.  On a separate note, it is worth noting this is the first precise 200-day moving average test for Chipotle since October 2015, which is rather difficult to believe. But is...

A Mass-Produced Algo Chart

The small caps remain at the core of the bull versus bear debate as we delve further into the winter months of 2017.  Specifically, the recent relative weakness in the Russell 2000 Index has galvanized bears insofar as expecting an imminent market pullback. That may very well materialize, but we need to see the small cap actually break down...

Smelling Rotations to Ensure Survival

If the major averages are going to continue to churn, then bulls likely need to continue the daily theme of sector rotation in order to ensure that bears betting on an imminent market swoon are proven wrong again.  This morning, we have some materials giants like BHP RIO VALE gapping up off the opening bell. As one of our Members noted earlier,...

An Apolitical Inauguration Play

Love it, hate it, or phlegmatic to it, the inauguration of Donald J. Trump as forty-fifth President of the United States will take place on Friday, January 20th.  In terms of "Inauguration Day" stock plays, it may be a stretch to overdo it. But MGM does have a brand new property down in Washington Harbor, not far from the White House. In...

Red and Green, Loud and Clear

The interplay between the U.S. Dollar and precious miners is a bit more pronounced today, with the Dollar ETF (below, on the daily timeframe) dipping below a well-defined rising price channel. In light of the Dollar weakness, precious miners are breathing a more pronounced sigh of relief.  In particular, the higher beta junior gold miners in...

Taylor Ham, Egg, and Biotech on a Roll

Two segments of the market stand out this morning into an otherwise soft open. Both Apple and several of its suppliers, like CRUS, are out of the gate impressively.  But so are select biotechnology issues, namely ARIA EXAS and INCY.  As we know, biotech struggled mightily throughout most of 2016. And if bulls can turn that ship around this year...

They Can Almost Smell It

Another immediate smackdown of some opening strength on the indices surely has to be giving bears hope that this particular reversal is the start of something more meaningful. After all, it is the growing conventional wisdom that the market is likely into the inauguration of Donald J. Trump later this month, and then will perhaps sell off only...

Little Shop of Horrors for Shorts

Despite another broad market fade earlier today, Nasdaq bears must be feeling a bit demoralized with a myriad of issues not only surviving the dip but now thriving as we head toward the closing bell, beyond AMZN and FB. SHOP is a fast-growing software play which has been basing sideways for months and is now exploding higher, following the...

Bezos' Pendejos

The easiest thing in the world to do right now is pile on to the group of brick and mortar retail stores which have made to look foolish (i.e. Bezos' Pendejos) by Jeff Bezos and his brilliant Amazon empire.  We know Kohl's is getting the business today, as is Macy's and JCP. Ralph Lauren was a short setup we discussed for Members last evening....

Presumption of a Resumption

"Resumption" is word you may be hearing quite a bit these days, as some of the big winners from early-to-mid 2016 finally corrected into the end of the year. Now, however, the issue is whether we are seeing, in fact, a resumption of that uptrend.  Gold miners actually fit into that category, despite how alarming the price drops may have been to...
