Rebuilding is Inevitable

A fairly pronounced downside reversal off a gap higher this morning, led by ARKK QQQ TSLA and the small and micro cap stocks in the IWM and IWC, respectively, has the look and feel of a market still in an ongoing correction with a rising risk of a washout below given how many longs seem to be cocksure a bottom is imminent. One of the...

So Winter's Over: That's the Story at Least

So that is it? A few days of the Nasdaq burning longs and suddenly today we are seeing a plethora of statistics and number crunchers implying a bottom is imminent.  Call me old-fashioned (and I certainly feel that way in this market at times), but the QQQ has not even sniffed its 150-day simple moving average (red line on daily chart for the...

The Great American Market Awaits Daddy Powell

There was a time, not too long ago, when market players started and ended their careers on Wall Street, and indeed their entire lives, without thinking or discussing The Fed very much. I would reckon the average market player now ponders and discusses The Fed at least tenfold over traders from previous generations, even during the Greenspan era...

The Fight is On

It may very well be the case that was spooked markets most today was the inability of the Nasdaq and growth stocks at-large to bounce in sympathy with the intraday relief in TLT earlier in the session. Instead, QQQ slumped to fresh session lows. And as we wok through the final ninety minutes of the session the Dow is now flipping red, erasing...

A Get Out of Jail Free Card

The Nasdaq is back to trading lower in lockstep, or so it seems, with prices on the 10-Year Note as rates push higher yet again this morning.  Just as it seemed as though we would waterfall lower, a rumor apparently hit the tape that Powell may announce some form of Yield Curve Control tomorrow. My best guess is that the Fed is simply putting...

GameStop: Not Again!

Equities have the look and feel of digesting yesterday's explosive rally on the back off a sloppy end to the month of February. A settling down process now would be fine by me, though bulls probably do not want to see the S&P 500 Index back under 3,850 anytime soon or else risk a full giveback.  In the meantime, we have some intriguing sectors...

In Like a Lion; Or Kruger National Park for That Matter

"March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb." - Old Weather Lore Consistent with this market's recent history, the sloppy and seemingly ominous close to the month of February for equities has led to another apparent and vicious squeeze higher to kick off the new month. There are some near-term hurdles to decisively clear in order to...
