There's No Nation Like Rotation

What's the best nation in the world? Donation. What's the best city in the world? Generosity.   An abrupt rug-pull this morning in hot momentum tech darlings, like NVDA , and even AMD AAPL TSLA, among others, is applying pressure to the bull thesis for continued sector rotation to keep this market uptrend afloat headed into the FOMC next...

Double Indemnity When This Rotation Occurs

In addition to financials and small caps stealing headlines for being rotation beneficiaries this week, the often overlooked insurers in the KIE sector ETF are threatening to benefit as well. On the KIE daily chart, below, now how quiet the insurers have been as a group since March. A push above $88 now should trigger a breakout. And looking at...

You Cannot Completely Avoid the Drama

The Comey testimony today was largely a non-event for stocks, as the larger issue for traders focused on price action in lieu of politics was the rotation back into small caps and banks, like Citi, for the most part.  In addition, the XME (ETF for materials miners) staged an impressive rally, with beaten-down winners from 2016 like CLF and TECK...

A Toll Booth Willie Bull Market

Persistent strength in payment processors SQ PYPL (not to mention the uniquely strong, multi-year bull runs in leaders MA and V) reinforce the secular theme of the modern day "toll collector" business model dominating global capitalism.  Earlier today on social media I charted QIWI, a similar play with exposure to Russia. There are other...

So is it Fair to Say That Comey's Testimony is a Buffer?

Into the closing bell, the market is hanging in there rather well in front of the Comey testimony tomorrow morning. I recognize that his testimony is not particularly market-relevant on the surface. But if he launches a few verbal mortars it may be enough to see the market hold off on a new leg higher in front of the main event next week. And...

No Dice

An ugly downside reaction to the weekly crude oil inventory report has apparently negated the bounce attempt energy stocks (and crude itself) tried to stage earlier this week. While the broad market is not swooning off the inventory move, the reality is that the energy sector continues to be a sore spot containing plenty of market cap, even if...

Pinball Game Action off Dave & Buster's

The rally in Dave & Buster's (PLAY) this morning after earnings stands in stark contrast to recent articles circulating about how millennials have effectively ruined casual dining. While it is certainly true that Dave & Buster's is a nontraditional casual diner, the reality is that when we look at, say, a Texas Roadhouse, below on the daily...

A Soothing Picture Instead of Extremes

With the exception of a few notable monsters like LITE OCLR TSLA, upside momentum in this market is sputtering. While a leader like AAPL remains in contention as a long setup, the action during the final hour from the market at-large is enough for me to reduce risk a bit on the long side, though I do have some exposure on with profit cushion. ...

Trading Biotech Not Such an Easy Company

Regarding the biotech trade in recent weeks (even months), our mantra inside Market Chess Subscription Services has been to be precise, given the many sloppy charts in the space.  And that certainly still seems applicable, even with a name like REGN acting rather well of late and distinguishing itself from other large cap bios in the IBB ETF....

Gold Miners Going the Beetlejuice Route

It appears as though the gold miners are trying to say "200-day moving average" three separate times this year in order to get the "showtime" they crave in the form of a sustained breakout higher.  Since bottoming in early-2016, gold bugs enjoy an exhilarating rally (indeed the strongest one since 2011) into the heart of last summer. Since...

Bears Lost These to the Summer Wind

Today's trading sessions certainly seems to be sponsored by the summer, what with the drifting, unfocused price action at-large.  However, the fact remains that monster winners like SQ PYPL are tipping their hands as to just how strong they truly are, even if they are too extended to chase right here, right now. Beyond that, leaders like TSLA...

It's All About the Benioffs

Summer trading is in full effect today, with the indices meandering slightly above and below the flatline for much of the action thus far. Below the surface, leaders like TSLA are faring well, as dip-buyers have showing confidence to step into weakness. Small caps are giving back some of last week's gains. However, the pullback can best be...

More Musical Chairs

The market appeared to shrug off yet another terrorist attack in England over the weekend via a mixed open among the major averages this morning. Extended and potential new leaders like PYPL and SQ are green as I write this, but the gist of the action is some mild consolidation early on.  That said, marquee Nasdaq leaders like FB and GOOGL,...

Housing: Time to Let Bygones Be Bygones

Pursuant to the quotation above, it appears as though the homebuilders and indeed home construction sector at-large may have found something to love more than the bad habit of looking back at the housing bubble and shrugging off the notion of home ownership. And that would be the emerging theme of millennials buying starter homes.  To be sure,...

Defeating an Obvious Narrative

The election of Republican Donald Trump as a vocal proponent of the Second Amendment last November seemed to dampen the mood for the firearms plays, namely RGR and AOBC (formerly Smith & Wesson).  It seems obvious that RGR and SWHC (AOBC now) had thrived during the Obama years. However, a careful examination of both charts reveals they did...
