A Better Takeoff

Stocks are doing a better job of holding early strength today, as all major averages are making some technical progress even as we head into news-filled weekend in Europe.  Materials plays like CLF and X are trying to wake up, though they have plenty more room to improve and earnings with which to contend in the coming weeks. But indisputable...

No Champs on the Champs-Élysées

In front of the French presidential election kicking off on Sunday, the major averages are still locked in a bit of a near-term stalemate. Even with this morning's opening gap higher, for example,  buyers cannot quite reclaim the 50-day moving average on the small cap ETF, IWM. The S&P is putting in a mildly indecisive "doji" candle thus far,...

Sector Rotation or Deterioration? We'll Do it Live

Another day in the market where the jury is still out as to whether we have a breakdown on our hands or simply more churning as bulls keep the tape afloat via sector rotation.  Even as energy stocks and the mega caps in the Dow came in today, for example, broadcast and media firms like GTN (below on the attractive daily timeframe) benefitted...

We Shall Return

Beyond the technical terms we often discuss when analyzing charts, a simple fact is that rangebound markets often return time and time again to precise levels to test them out and see if they are, in fact, legitimate. In other words, the inherent indecision associated with market ranges manifests itself when price continually probes a given...

Beyond the Burrito

We have a mixed tape this morning, albeit one where bulls can certainly make a case for having the upper hand as the small caps and Nasdaq stocks outperform.  As I write this, the mega caps in the Dow are red but, then again, much of that can likely be attributed to the extreme weakness in IBM post-earnings. "Big Blue," as it is known, was part...

Doc Hollywood Has to Hold it Together

More big earnings tonight, headlined by old school tech IBM and YHOO.  But I am focused in ISRG, in the hot medical device space. This has been a huge leadership group for bulls even as laggards in healthcare like VRX have gone from bad to worse. So, I am looking to see if the clear daily chart, below, stays pretty much intact--Some selling...

Clear the Tracks

It has been a particularly frustrating five months or so for those expecting an imminent directional move in Treasuries.  TLT, below on the daily timeframe, is a rough proxy as an ETF. But it does indeed illustrate the point that bonds have been flopping around like a fish out of water since November 2016.  But with TLT breaching $122 in recent...

Two Losers No More

We have a grinding bounce in the broad market still playing out early this afternoon, with bears likely looking for a Netflix earnings dump tonight to ignite a rollover now.  Still, it is hard not to consider the potential for another stunning V-shaped bounce back to fresh highs as a possibility, given this market's legendary resilience for...

The Next Season

The interval after the long Easter weekend until Memorial Day typically involves plenty of "Sell in May and go away" quotes, headlines, analysis, contrarian cases, and plenty of other assorted goodies.  Either way, this year the post-Easter trading period kicks off in the heart of earnings season. Netflix reports tonight after the bell, a major...

A Spring Stalemate

Given the confluence of many factors, including all markets closed tomorrow for Good Friday coupled with schools around the country on spring recess this entire week, this is actually one of the slower weeks of the year for stocks. On the first weekly chart, below, the bottom pane showing weekly volume for the QQQ (ETF for the top 100 Nasdaq...

Revenge Weather in Shortville...

It may very well prove to be the pause that refreshes, but this Tesla move lower today is likely keeping newcomer momentum longs honest, at a minimum.  The recent breakout for TSLA has been met with plenty of attention from the media and traders alike, which means some shaking and baking is to be expected before we find out if the upside move...

Easter Pullback Recipe Calls for Bittersweet Chips

Recent blog posts have centered around the significance of the semiconductors, clear leaders of this market's resilience on the way higher for months, quarters, even years of end. True, Qualcomm has been glaringly weak for a while now, a recurring short idea and trade for us inside Market Chess Subscription Services.  But we did not want to...

The Best Time to Buy Airlines is When There's Blood in the Aisles

In front of Delta Airlines reporting earnings tomorrow morning, and against the backdrop of  United Airlines' terrible publicity, two of the relatively smaller cap airlines are acting well. Both JetBlue, which we looked at last week, and now Southwest Airlines, make logical buyout targets for a big name like Berkshire Hathaway who already owns...

Tough to Invent a Better Setup

If you are looking for a clean bearish setup, not even Thomas Edison (colorized pictured above, enjoying a vacation) could invent one like we have on the QQQ 30-minute chart, below.  But therein lies the rub.  For years now, those "textbook" bearish setups seemed too obvious to work, as many theories float about how markets have changed and the...
