U-V-X-Y: You Ain't Got No Alibi!

With political gamesmanship and posturing taking hold in D.C. surrounding the latest round of Stimulus measures for Americans, markets are limping towards the closing bell today as this morning's Russia vaccine play fades under the scrutiny of its veracity.  One gets the sense that a sleepy summer VIX is ripe to wake up from what has been...

Vaccines of the World Unite! All You Have to Lose is Your Efficacy

Despite a fair amount of understandable skepticism greeting news this morning of Russian approval for a Coronavirus vaccine, futures reacted sharply especially in the Dow and small cap-led Russell.  As it stands now, coming up on ninety minutes into the cash session, the same dynamic of the mega cap value names in the Dow (BA CAT JPM, to name...

The New Reality of Big City Life

Since the surge in big city crime, protests, even riots, since just about Memorial Day, we have been looking for shares of ShotSpotter (SSTI) inside Market Chess Subscription Services to eventually get going. As often happens on Wall Street, though, it took the latest earnings report to wake the name up. Now that SSTI is clearly in play as an...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

The post-Civil War period in American history, pretty much taking us through the end of the 19th century, tends to be one of the more overlooked portions in the story of our republic. However, over the last five years or so I have becoming increasingly interested in it, namely due to the all-time great television series, "Hell on Wheels." In...

The "Dollar is Trash" is the New, "Men Are Trash"

With the UUP ETF (for the U.S. Dollar currency versus a basket of developed economies' currencies) bouncing off the long-term $25 level we examined yesterday in this piece , the precious metals and miners are finally cooling off after an exhilarating run. Be that as it may, I see UUP is well off session highs as I write this, placing the...

Quick: Someone Tell the L.A. Mayor That Silver is Having a House Party

Dating back to 2007, the $25 level on the UUP ETF, seen below on its monthly timeframe, has been a notable price magnet in terms of how this U.S. Dollar currency ETF (which pits the Dollar versus a bunch of developed economies' currencies, in aggregate) tends to revert after violent price swings.  Thus, with increasing headlines and market...

Tie Goes to the Money Runner

A virtual tie amongst those firms reporting earnings last evening and this morning, namely BYND DIS LVGO SQ TDOC TWLO, is a glaring theme so far today, with DIS SQ boosting the bull case while BYND LVGO TDOC TWLO are selling off a good deal. The caveat, of course, is that the likes of LVGO TDOC TWLO all screamed into earnings and, thus, are...

A Slow But Not Deserted Station

Crude oil, understandably, gets virtually all of the attention in the energy sector most of the time. Since cascading and catching tons of hoopla back in April, the "black gold" has since staged a spirited relief rally only to subsequently flatline, essentially, since early-June.  Two months later, we have crude showing some life today after...
