The Eternal Battlefield

Even though both the Nasdaq Composite Index and the QQQ (ETF for the top 100 stocks in the Nasdaq) both long ago left their prior dot-com bubble highs in the dust, a lingering issue from a long-term perspective has been that the semiconductors, the sector at the heart of the dot-com bubble run-up, have yet to adequately conquer their demons...

A Truly Bizarre Celebration

Of all the times we have seen the mainstream (non-financial niche) media report on the Dow Jones Industrial Average and "stocks" making all-time highs, this particular time strikes a certain chord given the lackluster price action beneath the surface. Indeed, the Apple jubilation from last night's earnings, not to mention FEYE ONCE and a few...

The widening spread between the Dow Jones Industrial Average and some notably weakening parts of the market continues to be masked by headlines of stocks hitting new highs.  Indeed, while it is true that the Dow is still chugging on higher for one new all-time high after the next, the negative divergences below the surface transcends mere...

A plethora of precious metals miners report earnings in the next week or so, placing an even bigger premium on the current technical juncture in which the GDX (ETF for senior gold miners) currently finds itself.  We previously looked at the daily timeframe, updated below, and inferred from the technicals that both the 200-day simple moving...

Back to Shore

Despite a solid open for the Dow, with even tech stocks green, the small cap weakness again seems to be dragging down the market here, once again. On the updated IWM daily chart, below, the ETF for the Russell 2000 small cap index illustrates the recent breakout to fresh highs was short-lived, as price is now soundly back inside the a prior...

A Venti Breakout? Not So Fast, My Friend

The monthly chart of Starbucks, a major consumer name, illustrates a point worth noting about some f the more prominent, multi-year winners in this market--Their long-term charts are a bit concerning insofar as covering much ground since 2009, then possibly forming a new consolidation before apparently breaking out earlier this year.  But what...

Eyes Wide Shut to This Mask

Although we have seen a fairly muted reaction to the Fed, thus far, the most concerning aspect about today's price action in equities is that the stodgy, mega cap names in the Dow seem to be masking weakness in the small caps. And that spread is only more concerning as I write this, with IWM pushing session lows while the likes of Boeing in the...

Royal Gold in a Fool's Gold World

Gold bugs can only hope that their precious miners follow the lead of some of the more industrial materials miners this summer, namely BHP FCX PKX, among others, in terms of waking up from a multi-quarter correction.  At the moment, though, they are staring down the business end of a fresh FOMC decision and statement later today, not to mention...

Regarding the prominent copper miner, Freeport-McMoran, on the back of a sharp earnings rally today, we can see the monthly FCX chart, below, indicate that today's rally...

WebMD No Longer Has an Acute Case of the Mondays

We have a variation of "Merger Monday" this morning, as KKR announced plans to acquire WBMD in a deal valued at $2.8 billion. WBMD gapped above $66 on the news, and puts the rest of the healthcare new age IT plays on the radar even more for potential buyout targets. TDOC comes to mind, of course.
