Iamgold Says "I am Your Tell"

Further softness in the broad market, especially with QQQ down more than 0.75% as I write this, on top of the small caps in IWM operating back under their 200-day moving average, is keeping bulls at bay early on this morning. It may only take a large buy program of two in order to reignite the buying pressure we saw earlier this month. However,...

The Good News...

The last few sessions, especially after Thursday morning's initial pop, have pretty much gone as we had expected them to inside Market Chess Subscription Services. Our game plan was to take profits into Thursday morning's strength and then to exercise patience until new setups emerged and, perhaps, any very near-term froth and/or end of quarter...

Emerging in the Darkness

It has been a while since we have heard much of anything from shares of Goldman Sachs. Clearly, the spike lower in rates in recent months has served to undermine any excitement bulls may have had for most holdings in the KRE (regional banking) and XLF (larger cap financials) sector ETFs.  But if Treasuries take a seasonal pause here allowing...

Meal Planning Properly

We have a fairly calm morning of digestion taking place in most part of the market. On the surface, this is pretty much what we expected and why we did not necessarily want to feel compelled to chase yesterday's rally, instead opting to be a net seller.  However, bears have proffered little actual technical evidence for us to simply readily...

The Best of War and More

Reports of a United States Navy drone being shot down by an Iranian missile over the Strait of Hormuz in what government officials are calling an "unprovoked attack," certainly is affecting crude oil and most energy stocks this morning, as they are spiking higher virtually across the board.  But as far as any jitters reverberating through...

You Are Now Free to Move About the Hamptons

Working our way through the final hour of this Fed Day, it appears Fed Chair Powell has, at least initially, done enough to soothe markets despite not giving equities a rate cut. Overall, the action has been mixed today, but I have not seen anything too bloody to push me off the running list of setups we are tracking.  If anything, bears may...

Stay on the Prowl

The easiest thing to do for most market players at this particular moment in time seems to be to wait on the FOMC fireworks later today. Beginning at 2pm EST, we will get the Fed's interest rate decision, accompanying statement, Fed members' forecasts, and Chair Powell's press conference, to boot. Indeed, those are all known, defined risk...

From Treasure to Trash

While a "June Swoon" still may materialize in equities, we know it was not meant to be for at least the first half of this month. After a demoralizing May for bulls, June has proven to be a rebirth of sorts, with various M&A deals emerging to boost healthcare, biotech, and software growth stocks when they needed it most, among other sectors....
