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...

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...
