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...

Pre-Race Festivities

In front of the FOMC decision at the bottom of the hour, followed by a Yellen presser, stocks are off session highs but still green.  In good Jack Dorsey/bad Jack Dorsey dynamic is on full display, with SQ sporting a bullish chart, coiled as a long setup, while TWTR is unable to hold any bounces and looks ripe to break into single digits this...

A Thrilling Series for Netflix

In front of The Fed, Netflix is acting the best of the "FANG" stocks, as well as PCLN and TSLA. Indeed, it has been a thrilling series of technical events for Netflix bulls in recent quarters, as bears squandered one opportunity after the next to bring the leader down.  A good chart perspective on NFLX can be seen, below, on the weekly...

Ready for Some Raising

It was a fairly standard day of consolidation again on the indices today, with some pullbacks keeping bulls honest in front of the big FOMC decision tomorrow. However, we did have some fireworks below the surface, with TSLA rallying on heavy buy volume back over resistance. In addition, one biotech, TSRO, got taken out back and sold off...

Not an Auto-Buy, But Tesla is Toughening Up

After its recent pullback since late-February earnings, Tesla Motors responded to a brief dip below the key $250 level in a bullish manner.  Today, the name is shooting higher in the face of a soft, pre-FOMC tape. As I write this, Tesla is trying to clear $255, the next level of resistance we have been tracking after $250.  While TSLA is still...

Falling Channels Falling Down

Both crude oil, as well as energy stocks such as RIG, are acting like more longs remain trapped in them rather than a scenario where longs have already capitulated and we would therefore be closer to a bottom.  On the XLE, energy sector ETF, daily chart below, note the well-defined falling channel pattern which took hold since mid-December....

Dead Ahead of The Fed

Despite a relatively flat day on the major averages, some standouts below the surface made for interesting movement. We continue to put in the work to identify for Members the very best charts even with plenty of macro events this week.  Bears have had ample time to make a dent in this market, and even have some notable victories like the...

Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun: Enjoy it While it Lasts

The opening of Steve Wynn's Boston Harbor property may have been pushed back to 2019, giving Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun, among other casino resorts in New England/upstate New York some borrowed time. However, make no mistake that marker will indeed come due.  And when it does, I suspect WYNN will dominate New England and even parts of New York,...

Gold Bugs: Do Whichever Weird Ritual You Need

Stocks are largely back to flat this afternoon, with morning strength being faded now commonplace in since the Trump speech rally last week. We are doing our best to not trade out of boredom and force in bets simply for the sake of gambling here, given the pedestrian movement in the market.  Still, it is instructive to keep tabs on the...

Sliding Off the Schneid

Stocks are set to open noticeably higher after the jobs report earlier this morning. When we view the S&P 500 Index and Nasdaq daily charts, there has been little if any, real technical damage of which to speak.  However, those pesky small caps in the Russell 2000 Index, along with oil and TLT, have been a thorn in the side of upside momentum...

Someone is Cruising for a Bruising

Crude oil and Treasuries continue to slide this afternoon, with bottom-fishers in the oil pits at risk of a further washout. Equities, as a whole, have largely held in rather well considering the USO swoon. Still, the small caps are now operating below their 50-day moving average on the IWM. And it will be interesting to see if bulls can...

Regeneron Trying to Regenerate a Good Chart

In addition to some of the more by-the-book sound biotechnology charts, like CELG and the BIVV blog post yesterday, which are on the the long radar here, we also want to be on the lookout for potential bottoming charts from laggards, too.  After a breathtaking multi-year rally, from 2010-2015, Regeneron degenerated into a longtime laggard among...
