And Then We Woke Up to a William Devane Commercial...

Multi-quarter highs for the gold ETF this morning, as we may be seeing some front-running of concerns to come in the autumn months.  Either way, gold bullion and her miners have been a beneficiary of the selling in equities of late. And we may have a new batch of shorts in the miners to propel them higher, as the GDX being red yesterday seemed...

Citigroup's a Leader? Get it in Writing

The recent strength in most big banks has masked a few of the more concerning spots in the finance sector, namely the KRE (regional bank sector ETF) underperformance a well as the Well Fargo scandal and subsequent fallout.  While JPM rally from June into July was impressive, the notion that Citigroup was the sector leader seemed tough to...

Late-Summer Bear Fun

After a sloppy open with an initial dip-buy attempt, equities are diving lower led by the small caps. For a while now, we have been tracking the IWM, ETF for the small cap-dominated Russell 2000 Index, not arbitrarily or to cherry-pick, but rather due to the glaring divergence they presented vis-à-vis the senior indices.  That divergence...

Come and Get Me, Copper

To piggyback my earlier blog post, within the materials complex we of course have the copper plays acting much better today.  Freeport (FCX) is a widely-known name, but as one of our Members noted we also must keep tabs on the likes of SCCO and even HBM, two under-the-radar copper plays sporting sound technical patterns on daily timeframes and...

Enough of the Mushy Stuff

The indices continue to enjoy early-morning bounces this week, as futures traders seem content to buy 'em up overnight. Despite the third consecutive session with a moderately big bounce off the open, small caps in the IWM ETF for the Russell 2000 Index are far from convincing as a bull victory, as they linger just under $138 at the moment....

An Island Hopping Campaign in the Biotech Theater

The healthcare and biotechnology complex has mostly experienced plenty of fits-and-starts this summer, with upside momentum blunted, especially in late-July. However, some of the more prominent bios, like AMGN BIIB CELG GILD REGN, have not exactly crashed and burned, ether.  Instead, plenty of the top IBB holdings are flashing signs of simply...

Bears Need to Focus on the North Korea Rebound

In light of some selling last week, bulls answered the bell yesterday for the most part with a snapback rally which did not fade into the afternoon portion of the session.  Beyond that, news hit the wires last night that North Korea was backing off its aggressive saber-rattling of late, which saw the precious metals get slammed overnight and...

Energy Above Water, Energy Below

Bulls seized the moment today for a snapback rally. However, looking through the major index charts it is perhaps a tad early to declare the recent selling to be fully in the rear-view mirror. Home Depot earnings (and plenty of other retailers) tomorrow morning before the bell may very well set the tone for the open tomorrow. But what has my...

Artful Deception

The owner of the LaCroix beverage brand, FIZZ, seen below on the updated daily chart, continues to coil for another potential short squeeze higher.  The name is rather heavily-shorted and has essentially ignored the recent market selling action. Note how strong the chart is here, as the basing action above all major moving averages looks ripe...

Rough Topography

A Monday morning opening gap higher may very well excite buyers from late-last week, but as far as some of the major index charts are concerned the action is becoming rather sloppy. In prior instances during this bull run, however, we know that sloppy charts do not necessarily equate to a market top on the indices. Thus, the burden of proof...

Perception Matters; But Facts Are Facts

We have a Nasdaq-led market bounce going today, though small caps are slightly red and gold and Treasuries are both green as I write this. Thus, the rally is not likely to scare too many bears into the weekend if we finish where we are currently trading.  Of course, these types of market scenarios bring out the usual arguments, with bulls...

Great Expectations

Dip-buyers were soundly stuffed for virtually all of today's session, the first time the have seen that happens on this type of level in quite some time. And yet expectations remain high for bulls. You still get the sense that an abrupt rally can materialize at any moment and take us back to new highs, rather quickly, effectively trapping a new...

Korean Barbecued Momentum...Or Did It?

(North and South Korea border, pictured above) The easiest excuse for this selloff would be the geopolitical headlines we saw earlier in the week, coinciding with the downside reversal in stocks on Tuesday. Since then, talk of North Korea has largely dominated headlines, and stocks have seen meek bounce attempts.  Indeed, this morning's weak...
