Building Up the Land

Caterpillar, a Dow component, is up more than 6% this morning after earnings. The global machinery play is clearly tethered to global growth expectations. And you can be sure bulls are celebrating the sanguine CAT number and forecast. Beyond a single earnings report, though, note the multi-year look at CAT, below on the monthly timeframe. The...

Gap 'n Flat: Now, What?

This morning's gap higher sure was picturesque for bulls. But as the intraday IWM chart shows, below, it was a gap and flat type of day. Indeed, it was a grind after the open. Still, bears failed to get their fade this time around, which raises the specter of a new leg higher in stocks. And, beyond that, equity bulls were able to crush the VIX...

This Market Needs a Kite Experiment

Much like Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, we may need to experiment with a kite in this market to see how much electricity it can conduct.  Specifically, KITE, a mid-cap biotehnologu stock, is sporting an attractive daily chart (below) in front of May 8th earnings. This chart is clearly one of the better XBI plays which have held up well...

An Extra Little Bonus

Lost in the shuffle of the French election, swirling headlines about politics in the U.S., and a loaded week of earnings into this massive gap higher this morning in the broad market is some more mergers and acquisitions activity.  Specially, m edical device titan Becton, Dickinson reached a deal to acquire BCR (C.R. Bard)  another medical...

Will Citi Get Another Bailout?

Despite various upside spurts this week, such as yesterday's broad market rally, the lingering issue for the market beyond energy weakness has been the lagging big banks.  Even though the major financial firms are still well above their pre-U.S. election levels from last early-November, the truth of the matter is that they are looking heavier...

No Glory Days for SLoB

Oil services giant, Schlumberger, below on the weekly timeframe, is down more than 3% after earnings this morning. For a while now, the energy sector has lagged equites in general, with energy stocks themselves lagging crude oil at various junctures, too. Typically, when commodity-derived stocks lag the actual commodity's performance it is a...

Little SHOP of Horrors for Shorts

With the rather sharp (albeit brief and aggressively bought) shakeouts from BREXIT last summer and then the election in the U.S. last November still a vivid memory for market players perhaps too many were leaning cautious in front of this weekend's election in France for us to see yet another "sell the rumor, buy the news" event.  Instead,...

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...
