Playing Chicken with the Neckline

Coming up in my video market recap after the bell it is worth discussing major biotech GILD and how it outperformed today. On the updated daily chart, below, note the "throwback" to the busted neckline of a topping pattern. Bears made some progress today.

My cover-stop is above $270, in order to mitigate the risk in the trade. Major credit cards have been multi-year winners. I was wildly bullish,...

Starting to Come Together, Pepper

The thesis we looked at of late and over the weekend in my video Strategy Session is unfolding this morning, with precious metals and miners outperforming while equities slump. With respect to the precious metals and miners complex, silver and the junior gold miners are typically the two best gauges of risk appetite, or lack thereof. Here,...
