A Premium Placed on Price

Beyond leaders like PCLN rallying sharply after earnings today, another idea is to scout out potential new leaders in their own specific industry.  As an example, Planet Fitness prices gym memberships usually far below completion. And with health insurance premiums in the news across the country for rising sharply, Americans may very well save...

Another Copper!

To follow-up on yesterday's note about the recent strength in copper and its potential to become much more relevant again, both the copper metal and copper miners like FCX are surging again today.  Freeport, a premier copper miner, is clearing multi-month resistance here which, once again, smacks of something beyond a mere short squeeze to keep...

Running on a Specific Platform

Stocks are mostly still running here into the bell, as the majority of today's gains held true. Bulls look to close us back over 2120 on the S&P 500 Index, a good first step for them as volatility gets crushed.  Priceline earnings after the bell should shed some light as to whether this leader can remain intact, given that PCLN's chart has been...

Fall Back, Spring Ahead Into Election Day

This morning's sizable gap higher across the major indices is surely about politics...or is it? To be sure, FBI Director Comey's letter yesterday added some fuel to the short squeeze fire overnight in the futures market, which is thus far carrying into this morning's session.  However, as we noted for Members of Market Chess Subscription...

Drain. The. Shorts.

Hyperbole aside, it is far from an explosive rally in the market today. However, bulls may have done just enough to stave off an imminent washout, which became a higher risk the longer we went without sufficiently reacting to oversold conditions--Even lowly GPRO is staging a reversal to green as I write this, perhaps indicative of short-term...

A Simple Observation

Despite a GPRO earnings blow-up and crude oil swooning again, stocks are finally reacting a bit to oversold conditions this morning.  Specifically, the S&P 500 Index, on the daily chart, below, is showing some life off its 200-day simple moving average (yellow line). The 200-day is a widely-watched reference point, even by non-technicians who...

Snooty Starbucks to the Rescue?

One of the top holdings in the XLY, consumer discretionary ETF, Starbucks reports earnings tonight, snooty service, burnt coffee and all, provided for analysts gratis.  As we have profiled for a good while on this site, SBUX has succumbed to the likes of DIS NKE UA as prominent consumer leaders fallen by the wayside. Beyond that, the coffee...

Back Above the Mendoza Line as Baseball Season Ends

We last looked at the "Mendoza Line" on the VIX back in June before BREXIT.  Specifically, The CBOE Market Volatility Index, or VIX, which is considered to measure fear according to the options market, is shooting higher today after flashing signs of life last week for the first time in a good while. Back over 20, the VIX is crossing over the...

A Smoke-Filled Room to Talk Political Plays

Although politics can, more often than not, largely serve as a distraction to traders and markets, the reality is that we do have a visible General Election on Tuesday.  Regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum, if at all, it is useful to have a few general ideas in mind depending on which outcome prevails.  Solar has been,...

It's All About the Cubs Tonight, But Don't Forget the Sox

The Chicago Cubs will surely draw a huge audience tonight in Game 7 of the World Series in Cleveland.  But before the opening pitch, the SOX, not the Cubbies' crosstown rival but rather the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index, may prove a vital role in whether stocks correct in a deeper manner that what we have seen heretofore, or instead keep...

Glut, Glut, Goose!

The massive inventory build just released during the weekly report for crude oil is sending the USO ETF spiraling lower, enough to goose oil bears to make a move in front of the FOMC later. We know energy stocks have been fickle for a while now, in terms of sustaining upside moves. But many petro-sensiitve emerging markets (Russia) and a decent...

Energy Has Been Building for a Move

With this morning's bounce attempt off 2120 support on the S&P 500 Index apparently failing, sellers are in control of the initiative for now as we head into the FOMC tomorrow afternoon. Of course, there are plenty of other events which could help sway the market, including Facebook earnings, a jobs report on Friday, and the election next week,...

Add This Wedge to Your Spreads

On the back of the crude oil weakness today, note that high yield corporate and junk bonds have recently been showing some cracks in the foundation.  If you doubt there is at least some correlation between HYG JNK and equities, note the JNK ETF weekly chart, below, which shows us that junk and stocks both bottomed in February of this year right...

Biding Your Time

To be sure, the pace of the market action in equities continue to astound in terms of how lethargic and indecisive it truly is. Patience and resisting the urge to put on too many wagers is an underrated aspect about nearly all forms of speculation. But it surely applies to the current market, perhaps into Election Day or at least FOMC on...
