Off to Battle Again; Chess Moves

Into the bell, I went long TBT (the ultra-short Treasuries ETF) at $46.46, with a protective stop-loss below $45. This position represents 4% of my trading portfolio capital. More on this trade and equities in my video market recap after the bell. See you there.

Guarding the Considerable Time Fortress

Markets are initially surging higher off the Fed's latest statement, as shorts into the meeting are getting squeezed quite violently. If we do see some a reprieve from the selling into Christmas, I still think Blue Nile can outperform, seen bouncing back nicely on the daily chart, below. $37 remains the trigger above, but the low float/short...

Perspective Before the Ride Begins

In front of the FOMC announcement, member forecasts, and Chair Yellen's presser, note the small caps in the Russell 2000 Index, seen the IWM ETF hourly chart below, are hovering right near the breakdown level (yellow arrows) of that diamond topping pattern (light blue lines) that we had previously observed. It is likely no coincidence that the...

Still, I took some shots here and there, with a nice win...

A Setup at the Cuban Cigar Store

With this political news out today, any stock with exposure (or at least apparent exposure) to Cuba is obviously worth researching. CUBA would be one such ticker, an investment fund up over 42% today. It is tough to chase that type of action for a swing trade, especially in the face of news-driven moves. But for a day-trade you typically want...

Cutting a Gourmet Loss; Chess Moves

No dice on the coffee long starter position I took the other day, with the JO ETN failing to hold recent lows. As a result, I closed out my position just above $31.30 from the $32.77 entry I posted the other day for a loss. I am honoring my stop-loss as the thesis for the trade is being proven wrong by the market with price losing Monday's...

Late Night Strategy for Wednesday

After a nice breakout to new all-time highs, I believe Wal-Mart could easily be setting up as a quick short. On the daily chart, below, note the blue lines indicating a tight range of late below the the 20-day simple moving average. On weakness, WMT is likely to breakdown further and at least test its 50-day moving average. A move over $85,...
