Fools Russian Where Angels Fear to Trade

On an otherwise slow morning, Russia is gapping free and clear above prior resistance on its country ETF daily chart (RSX), a scenario we outlined for Members last night in the full video recap.  It is understandable that many traders would shy away from even looking at Russia these days, what with all of the geopolitical risks, not to mention...

Let's Find Our Cyber Bearings Tonight

Prooftpoint, Inc. reports earnings tonight, a stock which has acted as well as any of them in the cybersecurity space. While plenty of eyes will understandably be focused on GOOG INTC MSFT PYPL SBUX earnings, among others, PFPT may very well hold the key as to whether the impressive HACK (ETF for cybersecurity stocks) action continues. As you...

Would it Kill You to Buy American?

With earnings out of the way this morning, the chart of Ford looks even more vulnerable to lower prices after having lagged GM for quite some time. We know that Tesla Motors has been on a year of late, as has Fiat Chrysler (FCAU). So the underperformance in Ford has become all the more pronounced, with its post-election rally now unwinding. GM...

I'm Talking About Liquid, Buddy Boy

As loose and sloppy as natural gas itself trades at times, some of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers are a bit more sanguine on the commodity's prospects. The weekly inventory report for natty was just released as I write this, and the UNG (ETF for natural gas) is holding its initial gains this morning. If that continues to be the case,...

Here Comes Old School

Beginning tonight with the suddenly-controverisal QCOM, we will see a deluge of old school, mature tech firms reporting earnings over the next two days in particular. Also reporting tonight are EBAY T WDC, just to name a few other old school plays.  And then tomorrow we get INTC MSFT, plus a whole host of others. Those names are, indeed, as old...

Most Roads Lead to Inflation

Between the rally in most commodities, especially the premier global materials, a resurgence in regional banks favoring higher rates, a weakening Dollar, and most of all Treasuries unable to hold a bounce on Monday, it sure seems that the inflation argument is gathering steam.  While bond bulls seem to have formed several factions, all leading...

20,000 of One, Half a Dozen of the Other

The Dow 20,000 milestone has finally been achieved, putting to rest what is otherwise a seemingly trivial event for traders. Nonetheless, the media coverage should now let up and, surely, has plenty of other material on which to focus going forward. As for us and what we are left to negotiate in this market, bulls continue to trap bears as best...

China Stocks: What a Long, Strange, CTRP It's Been

In light of the BABA beat and rally, Ctrip.com is another China play worth watching on the long side especially since earnings are not until mid-March.  On the daily chart, below, note CTRP needs to clear the cluster of moving averages, just above, in order to break free and clear and gain momentum. To be sure, plenty are watching BIDU JD SINA...

Laying the Foundation

Without question, the industrials and miners are notable outperformers today, even as biotechs and healthcare continue to slack. We will delve into some specific, under-the-radar plays for Members coming up in my usual Midday Video. But to be precise in the meantime, the move in the XLB (sector ETF for materials/ags/chemicals) is spectacular,...

Evidence Beyond Positive Thinking

The issue as to whether plenty of materials, steels, mining plays are on the cusp of another sustained move higher off possible bear market lows printed roughly one year ago is slowly resolving in favor of bulls. Beyond a mere whim or knee-jerk reaction to President Trump's rhetoric and policies, we are looking to stay rigorous and assess...

Some Serious Voodoo Charts

The "rare earth" stocks caused a good deal of pain to traders on the U.S. exchanges several years back. It is hard to find many tickers trading here now, though, as the REMX ETF (below on the daly chart) for rare earth mining stocks is composed mostly of obscure firms trading on foreign exchanges.  Nonetheless, the improved price action is...

It's Going to Take a Team Effort

The precious miners are at a major long-term spot, beyond short-term bounces.  Fortuna Silver Mines, for example, a silver on the monthly timeframe, below, illustrates this point. You would be surprised to see how many other precious miners are sporting similar technical setups, long-term, where bulls are on the cusp of major technical progress...

Time to Catch the Fat from Falling Chips

Beyond the QCOM issues (a name we had been short for Members over the last few weeks and closed out the position this morning in front of Wednesday's earnings report), semiconductors are reversing soundly off their late-december highs, seen on the SMH sector ETF daily chart, below. With the long reversal doji candlestick off those prior highs...

All the News That's Fit to Pin

Despite a gap-fill down to the open on the S&P 500 Index's ETF (SPY), the market currently has the look and feel of pinning a variety of issues as options expire. Indeed, while bears were rooting for a broad-based "sell the news" reaction to Inauguration Day, we may very well need to wait until next week for a better gauge as to how this...
