Summer Into Fall, Make the Call

Today marks the last trading day of summer, with autumn in the Northern Hemisphere beginning on  Monday, September 23rd.  Although the post-Labor Day phase has been in gear for a few weeks now, and the Fed meeting is in the rear view mirror, stocks are still searching for a more definitive clue as to whether or not they should sustain a...

A Market Speaking with a Southern Drawl

Despite some promising stocks and sectors emerging, such as healthcare, not to mention a bullish upside reversal from an initial selloff after the FOMC yesterday, the reality is that the current market is still a bit too laid back, leisurely plodding along with the market equivalent of a pleasant southern drawl rather than a fast-talking New...

Back to an Old Flame

Amid a choppy summer market, trade wars, Fed debate, software corrections, and oil volatility its the fact that the healthcare sector largely took a summer vacation. In other words, gauging the XLV (healthcare sector ETF) updated daily chart, below, we can see the late-summer chop amounted to a rather attractive base when it was all said and...

Mark Douglas: Mind Over Market

Saber, Rattle, and Roll

In the wake of the Saudi Arabia oil attack (with fingers being pointed at Iran for saber rattling), stocks are mostly soft albeit with IWM holding green as I write this.

Dead Ahead of The Fed

It is a rather quiet end of the week on Wall Street, which may very well be apropos considering the potential storm next week with the much-ballyhooed FOMC. AAPL FB GOOGL are down on antitrust headlines, but note how GOOGL even today is exuding relative strength to peers. For a while now, GOOGL has had the best "FANG" chart, and that remains...

A Chance to Get Back Above Water

Virtually the entire energy complex has been mired in a bear market for a good while now, be it natural gas, crude oil, and especially energy stocks themselves.  In terms of gauging whether he worst is over, why not look at one of largest firms in the world and largest holding by market cap in the XLE ETF, Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM)? Exxon...

Détente from the Horror Show

Putting political opinions to one side, we know that whichever side you are on regarding the China/U.S. trade war there is no denying the increased, random overnight volatility we have seen in the market because of it for a good while now.  But with President Trump delaying China tariffs as a good will gesture amid more rumblings of a trade...
