Late Night Strategy for Monday

Futures are soft, and there are several reasons I outlined in my Weekend Market Film Session to be cautious. Nonetheless, if the holiday rally ensues I am still eyeing the casual dining space. BLMN has an improving chart, seen on the daily timeframe, below. Also watch KONA for another entry over $25.80, but be aware it trades thinly. And on...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

If you have not seen Europa Europa (1990) then you are doing yourself a disservice. In my view, this is the best Holocaust film ever made. Based on the real-life story of Solomon Perel, a Jew in Nazi Germany who got separated from his family and tried to conceal that he is Jewish  while joining the Hitler Youth, we see behind enemy lines of...

Stop Giving Away Your Power as a Person

Two Competitive Plays for the Holiday Shopping Season

BONT NILE are two laggard retail plays  which could easily see more of a bid into Christmas. With Black Friday upon us, both stocks are acting well today. BONT is a beaten-down chart and trying to move up off the "right side" of a long, potential base bottom. And NILE is still potentially bull-flagging under well-defined $37 resistance. Keep an...

Locking in Some Fast Gains; Chess Moves

With energy stocks immediately getting pounded after my ERY purchase on Wednesday (ERY is the triple-short ETF for the energy sector), I find myself up a large percentage move in a very brief period of time. As a result, and due to the XLE gapping free and clear below its daily chart Bollinger Band (below), thus rendering it quite oversold...

Late Night Strategy for Friday

With crude oil getting drilled over Thanksgiving break, I expect my ERY long (triple-short the energy sector stocks) to do well on Friday. I may consider adding to the position, discussed in more detail in this blog post on Wednesday, if dip-buyers get stuffed on bounce attempts. As for bottom-fishing crude oil itself, there is no doubt...
