Simon Says Pay Attention to Me

It is worth noting that the REIT Simon Property Group, presented below on the daily timeframe, is not only the top holding in the IYR (commercial real estate sector ETF), but is also a top ten holding in the XLF (sector ETF for the financials).  Simon has been on a tear higher for years now, obviously helping IYR and XLF along the way.  It is,...

Finally Setting Sail

It looks as though the widely-watched upside breakout in TWTR is finally setting sail, gauging the first daily chart, below. Still, I am interested to see if the social stock can close today over the key $50 level, given how anticipated the breakout seems to have been. Also note the stock is poking it upper Bollinger Band already, indicative of...
