Don't Let the Door Hit You on the Way Out, Q1

I, for one, am thrilled at the prospect of the calendar flipping to April and the second quarter of trading kicking off next week.  Q1 for 2023 featured, after an initial squeeze to kick off the new year, endless head-fakes, whipsaws, range probing and the like. Headed into this year with Members, my view was that January into even mid-February...

Sugar Coated Rally Mountains

The great sugar bull market continues, as illustrated by the thinly-traded SGG ETN monthly chart pruning fresh highs, below. With sugar on a tear it is tough to see inflation collapsing anytime soon, especially given the ubiquity of sugar in the modern American lifestyle.  But as we wind down the first quarter of trading that has not yet...

Another Round

Amid higher rates we have stocks showing an appetite to gobble up just about anything, including some alarmingly negative commentary out of Micron last evening. Of course, with MU up 6% as I write this, not to mention LULU surging higher after earnings, bulls are feeling their oats again and calling for an imminent melt-up.  As we have noted,...

Mid-Caps Are So...Mid

Tough Markets Don't Last; Tough Traders Do

In late-2008-early-2009 I can honestly say I expect the violent, random price swings we saw because we had already crashed in October 2008 and I thus expected tons of "aftershocks" from a broken market trying to eventually heal itself. This first few months of 2023, however, feels much more like the lingering slush of liquidity from the...
