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....

Not Funny "Haha," Funny QURE

Although we can point out the likes of AMZN and FB looking like the best "FANG" names here, alongside OLED continuing to exude excellent relative strength to its downtrodden peers in the semiconductors, not to mention some decent software action, the reality is that today's session belongs to biotechnology and select healthcare stocks. This is...

A Nice Sweetener

Monday morning spikes higher in the likes of ARQL BPMC CLVS QURE, and especially ARRY on the back of a $10/$11 billion buyout offer from PFE are all helping to propel the biotech ETFs (IBB, XBI) upwards. To be sure, biotech bulls needed a dose of adrenaline early this week, as the XBI ETF, seen below updated on its daily timeframe, was in dire...

Sunday Matinée at Market Chess Cinemas

Following in tradition for this website on Father's Day Weekend, the great father/son tale told in Road to Perdition (2002) is worth a viewing (or a repeat viewing). My own father died in 2002, not long before this film was released. I often wonder if he would have liked it as much as I think he would have. I suppose I will always associate...

A Bumpy Ride Across the Channel

For all of the pomp and circumstance of some of the recent IPOs, including BYND and newest additions: CHWY FVRR, we still think the small caps and, to a degree, the semiconductors remain two of the most critical parts of the market to observe.  Clearly, with AVGO faltering today, chips remain under heavy pressure as I write this. The SMH sector...
