Something's Gotta Give

Over the last two years Okta, which reports this evening and is shown on the monthly chart, below, has beaten both top and bottom line estimates 100% (!) of the time.  Although I have always thought that earnings are the epitome of a roulette wheel gamble, insofar as the immediate reaction, I suspect something has got to give, as LeAnn Rimes...

Dog Day Rally

Some weak labor market data this morning , via The Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTS report, from the Labor Department, was enough to send rates down and stocks up. And that move is persisting well into the afternoon as I write this.  As you might imagine, I view this move as wishful thinking on both counts. Not only is this data...

Legs for Days During NVIDIA's August

With just over three sessions left before the month of August concludes on Wall Street, NVIDIA's monthly candlestick (arrow, below on monthly chart) is shaping up to close with a "long-legged doji."

We'll Be Slugging it Out in Japan This Weekend

Slugging it out in Jackson Hole, more precisely.  With Powell having spoke this morning, and ECB President Christine Lagarde speaking later today out in Wyoming, do not sleep on new Bank of Japan Governor Kazuo Ueda's remarks tomorrow.  Granted, it is on a Saturday. However, the weakness in the Japanese Yen currency continues to be a theme, and...

More Like Jenga Huang

In spite of the NVDA euphoria last evening, we have the Nasdaq struggling this morning at the 50-day moving average (dark blue line and arrow, below, on the Nasdaq daily chart), an area we highlighted yesterday. Should bulls fail here, especially into Jackson Hole, it opens the door perfectly for a new leg down with trapped longs.  As for...

Silver and Miners, Long Time No Speak

In a safety deposit box at a bank not far from where I live I have a chunk of Chinese Gold Panda coins from various years in the 1980s as part of my physical precious metals holdings. Naturally, I am looking for gold to skyrocket in price over the long-term as entrenched inflation takes its toll, eventually, on the Dollar, and investors,...

I am Just the Messenger

Do you know which stocks and sectors are not buying the bunch of baloney that NVDA and TSLA re trying to tell you today? Regional banks and REITs mostly. But also China stocks (again), and small caps in general as rates on the 10-Year Note challenge their prior October 2022 highs.  In a rather pathetic (in the true sense of the word, pathos)...
