The Ones Which Hold on Are Keepers

La Jolla Pharmaceutical (LJPC) priced a 3.7 million common stock offering at $33.50/share this morning. But, as you can see below on the biopharmaceutical firm's daily chart, is the stock is absorbing the offering remarkably well. Generally, offerings are seen as dilutive to existing shares and thus short-term bearish.  However, when a stock...

They Still Allow Garden-Variety, Don't They?

While many market players and pundits seem to be quick to declare this market pullback or consolidation to be over, note the strongest index today, the Nasdaq, below on the ETF's daily chart, not even able to bounce up to the midpoint of yesterday's massive range. Bears will, of course, point to the small cap weakness.  But even in terms of a...

A Squeeze Play with Two Outs

From a contrarian perspective, it is interesting to see the timing of the new "Short Squeeze" ETF, SQZZ, open for trade today.  First, some background, via BusinessWire.com ETF industry veteran Brad Lamensdorf launched today The Active Alts Contrarian ETF (NASDAQ: SQZZ), a first-of-its-kind actively managed ETF that seeks capital appreciation...

Intermission or the End?

After yesterday's violent reversal across the major averages for stocks, quite a few are already proclaiming the "pullback" to be over or near completion. A failed early bounce attempt this morning is not helping that thesis, with the small caps in the Russell 2000 Index most notably giving up the ghost.  Another factor to consider in terms of...

Nothing Like an Equities' Selloff to Send Gold Bugs Into a Frenzy

With GDX (senior gold miner ETF) breaking back over the key $23 level today as equities are selling off considerably, we now want to see if miners can clear their 50-day moving average (dark blue line, below on the daily chart) convincingly in order to set in motion a more sustainable rally.  Also note that Silver Wheaton (SLW), a larger silver...

UVXY: You Ain't Got No Alibi

Bears finally achieved some type of breakthrough today, with some of the heaviest selling equites have experienced in a good while taking hold after this morning's opening gap higher.  The weakness in banks, namely BAC GS, remains apparent as I write this. Even though the weakness is being written off for political reasons, the reality is that...

New Dangers Below the Surface

The weakness in financials is at the forefront of the market weakness this morning, as their underperformance since last weeks FOMC is becoming a bit more pronounced while equities as a whole staged a "gap-and-fade" this morning.  On the one hand, we do not want to become overly-sensitive to intraday market moves. However, the constant fading...

Bears Need to Decide if the Bank is Worth the Risk

For the second session in a row, banks are lagging the tape as they continue their post-Fed rate hike "sell the news" reaction. The Wells Fargo daily chart, below, illustrates as much, with WFC losing some intermediate-term trend support today (or at least intraday).  It would certainly behoove bears to make a push in the broad market lower in...

Man the Fortinet in This Battle

In lieu of the gap up in downtrodden cybersecurity play, FireEye, this morning, some of the better technical plays in the HACK ETF are worthy of a look.  Specifically, we should consider manning the Fortinet, as we can see the daily chart, below, sporting improved technicals in 2017. After an early-February gap higher, note how tightly the...

Bulls Can Die Another Day in This Industry

As we discussed with Members in a video earlier today, as volatile as biotech has been (see the AMGN ESPR sharp selling) it may be a bit more prudent to focus on some of the better performers in the healthcare arena, not tethered to drugs and clinical trials, per se. The diagnostics/research segment in healthcare has quietly been a strong...

Sketch a Good Setup for Skechers

Skechers, a lifestyle footwear firm, always seems to get lost in the shuffle among the FL NKE UAA of the world in the retail space, as traders usually do not create too much buzz about the name. However, one of our Members noted the improved action here yesterday. And when we observe the daily chart, below, it is clear that this is a...

A Quick Run in the Snow

A post-Fed hangover combined with the NCAA basketball tournament tipping off is likely adding to the pedestrian action into the early-afternoon.  Thus far, bulls are putting up a fight around the $238 area on the SPY, ETF for the S&P 500 Index, which roughly equates to 2380 on the S&P cash. I am trying not to over-trade or overanalyze this type...

A Hangover, Not So Black and White

After an opening move higher, stocks are a bit hungover from yesterday's eventful rally.  Even the gold miner ETFs, GDX and GDXJ, are finding some initial (and probably expected) overhead supply or resistance at their respective 50-day simple moving averages. Indeed, some backing and filling or consolidation seems perfectly reasonable after the...

Let's See if There's Legs Into March Madness

The metals and miners, precious and otherwise, are some of the big winners off the Fed rate hike today.  Equities, as a whole, are performing rather well, too, despite a mild "sell the news" reaction from the banks.  As we noted last Friday, gold miners were at a critical juncture technically, transcending the short-term machinations of The Fed...
