Peaceful Transfer of Power in a Range

On this Inauguration Day it is surely ironic that the major indices, mired in this historically compressed range, seem to be effecting a peaceful transfer of power between buyers and sellers on a daily basis.  In other words, on a day-to-day basis we have seen rather peaceful alternating action, with little in the way of follow-through one way...

Big Evening Blue Before the Big Day Tomorrow

Long-time readers will recall, back in 2010, looking at IBM (or "Big Blue") in a bullish light, ready to break out of a multi-year base higher. At a certain point, though, namely in 2013, Big Blue began to slow down and display the hallmarks of a textbook long-term head and shoulders top. This top coinciding with plenty of self-described value...

Bend the Boat Like Beckham

It is often said in markets that the trend is your friend until it bends in the end.  Small caps sure seem to have been "bending," but not breaking, in recent sessions. The higher beta issues in the Russell 2000 Index have lagged their senior counterparts at various junctures over the last few weeks, prompting bears to call for an imminent...

Quick Plays to Pass the Time

Despite gaps higher in Nasdaq leading issues like NFLX and TSLA, the major indices are uninspired so far this morning. As I write this, I see the averages all flipping mildly red, as broad-based buying has on indefinite hiatus.  With Inauguration Day tomorrow, the market may very well be transitioning from a phase of pricing in the potential...

Is Under Armour About to Get Sonned By Nike?

It is an interesting topic, one which I am sure Under Armour's January 31st earnings will shed more light.  But note UAA breaking below $30 today, a short idea we had for Members the last week or so, while Nike is off to a decent start in 2017. NKE may be emerging from a multi-quarter falling channel, while UAA still looks ripe to head on...

Good Protection for the Steelers

Coinciding with some comments by Wilbur Ross this morning (Ross is Donald Trump's Commerce Secretary nominee), steel plays are rallying off some obvious potential support levels.  After circling back to their respective 50-day simple moving averages, the likes if AKS RS X are up sharply as I write this on the prospect of protectionism from...

Trump Uranium Plays: Bring it in for the Real Thing

Much like with steels, but in a more ferocious manner, the uranium plays which rallied, in part, on the prospect of a Trump presidency are unwinding today in front of Inauguration Day on Friday.  We knew at some point there would be a sharp shakeout, given how inherently volatile all things commodity-related are. And when you factor in how many...

Trump Tweets: Everybody Takes a Beating Sometime

The reality of a President Trump in this day and age means that stocks and sectors will, undoubtedly, be sensitive to his tweets. We have already seen this sensitivity on full display even before he officially takes office on Friday.  With this in mind, the pricing power of some biotech and healthcare firms is likely in focus as the healthcare...

Doing God's Work By Building a Tower of Babel

The tale of the Tower of Babel is said to explain the origin of different languages in the world. As the story goes, a group of survivors of the Great Flood in the Book of Genesis are united in language and ambition to build a tower tall enough to reach heaven. God takes umbrage to this act and subsequently creates multiple language barriers to...

Not Quite Ready to Leave Port

We have a fairly busy shortened week of trading underway, with plenty of earnings and macro events. A big bank like Morgan Stanley reversed down pretty hard after earnings, off by nearly 3% as I write this. Netflix earnings tomorrow, as well as GS in the morning, are sure to capture plenty of attention, too. But the U.S. Dollar price action...

Artful Speculation at the Guggenheim

After failing to, thus far, pounce on the short-term initiative since yesterday morning's sell-off, bears are rather sleepy today as we head into a three-day weekend. The indices are holding their ground since an opening move higher. But the market largely has a feel to it of traders punting into next week and beyond the inauguration before we...

A New Season is Underway

The major banks reporting earnings this morning gives a more standard feel to a new earning season now underway. At first, the likes of BAC JPM WFC did not react much. But as I write this I see Wells is up by more than 2%.  As for stocks at-large. bulls are looking to erase the concern the market showed yesterday morning off the open, with a...

A Few Stops Down

The working thesis for bears has been that the early relative weakness for small caps in the Russell 2000 Index in the new year would eventually drag most of the other indices lower, too.  After a few attempts to squeeze bears highs, bulls failed to hold the mid-point of a well-defined price range on the IWM (Russell's ETF), seen on the update...

Another Split Out Wide

It is usually interesting to see the timing of when some of the volatility ETFs effect a reverse-split, as we are seeing today with a 1-5 reverse split for UVXY (the ultra-long VIX ETF).  As UVXY reverse-splits, stocks are getting hit with the most selling we have seen in this young year so far. We know volatilty has been a tough long for a...
