Staying Onatopp of the Russian Market

The RSX, country ETF for Russia, made its way over the 20-period moving average on the 30-minute chart (orange line, below) yesterday, which we looked at as an actionable long setup. Nonetheless, trades need to be kept on tight leashes here, as Russia remains a risky, headline driven special situation. At issue now is whether we have another...

Two Charts To Watch as the Markets Levitate

AAPL is bouncing hard off  its 50-day moving average today, after struggling for a few weeks to hold strength. In general, the market is staging a spirited snapback rally from oversold conditions. However, as I noted earlier I am still watching that 20-day moving average on the S&P 500 Index to see if it acts as resistance. In the meantime,...

The First Big Test for the Superhero Bounce

The SPY daily chart, below, shows price checking back up to the 20-day moving average (orange line). I view this circumstance as the first big test on the bounce-back rally. If we are to see a rollover, then this is where sellers would likely present themselves to avoid another V-shape rally to fresh highs. Elsewhere, GRPN is impressive today,...

Longs for Rentals Into Christmas

Beaten-down issues, such as FSLR LVS WYNN, are enjoying snapback rallies even if they are still within the context of broken charts. Overall, equities are squeezing eager bears from two sessions ago, despite glaring weakness again in the likes of AMZN GPRO, and crude oil. Playing longs like LVS here can best be described as a "rental" into...

Late Night Strategy for Thursday

One thing is for sure with this market--You had better be precise with your stock and industry selection. As an example, within the consumer discretionary space we have the major casinos essentially crashing, in LVS MGM WYNN, while the major cruise lines look as bullish as any group of charts around, CCL (first chart, below) NCLH RCL. As I...

Off to Battle Again; Chess Moves

Into the bell, I went long TBT (the ultra-short Treasuries ETF) at $46.46, with a protective stop-loss below $45. This position represents 4% of my trading portfolio capital. More on this trade and equities in my video market recap after the bell. See you there.

Guarding the Considerable Time Fortress

Markets are initially surging higher off the Fed's latest statement, as shorts into the meeting are getting squeezed quite violently. If we do see some a reprieve from the selling into Christmas, I still think Blue Nile can outperform, seen bouncing back nicely on the daily chart, below. $37 remains the trigger above, but the low float/short...

Perspective Before the Ride Begins

In front of the FOMC announcement, member forecasts, and Chair Yellen's presser, note the small caps in the Russell 2000 Index, seen the IWM ETF hourly chart below, are hovering right near the breakdown level (yellow arrows) of that diamond topping pattern (light blue lines) that we had previously observed. It is likely no coincidence that the...
