The Last Stand for Bond Bears

2014 has been a body bag type of year for bond bears pushing the envelope. I, myself, have been looking for a reason to make some big bets on the short side in the bond market, but ultimately stuck to my discipline of "no trigger, no trade" and took a pass on making the bold top-call. Still, I took some shots here and there, with a nice win...

A Setup at the Cuban Cigar Store

With this political news out today, any stock with exposure (or at least apparent exposure) to Cuba is obviously worth researching. CUBA would be one such ticker, an investment fund up over 42% today. It is tough to chase that type of action for a swing trade, especially in the face of news-driven moves. But for a day-trade you typically want...

Cutting a Gourmet Loss; Chess Moves

No dice on the coffee long starter position I took the other day, with the JO ETN failing to hold recent lows. As a result, I closed out my position just above $31.30 from the $32.77 entry I posted the other day for a loss. I am honoring my stop-loss as the thesis for the trade is being proven wrong by the market with price losing Monday's...

Late Night Strategy for Wednesday

After a nice breakout to new all-time highs, I believe Wal-Mart could easily be setting up as a quick short. On the daily chart, below, note the blue lines indicating a tight range of late below the the 20-day simple moving average. On weakness, WMT is likely to breakdown further and at least test its 50-day moving average. A move over $85,...

Junior Varsity Losers

In addition to the large, liquid, premier glamorous issues in the market (e.g. AMZN GOOG NFLX PCLN TSLA), the "junior" marquee names, with a bit less institutional sponsorship and market capitalization, but which are still quite noteworthy, have been struggling mightily of late. I have consistently charted P TWTR YELP as short ideas for several...

A Ritual Fade

The Nasdaq is flipping red as I write this, in part due to the many times AAPL (a heavily-weighted Nasdaq component) has seen bounce attempts faded in recent trading session. Despite the fact that AAPL is back to its 50-day simple moving average, there may be too many looking to play a bounce for it to stick. In addition, other marquee Nasdaq...

We're Going to Stay Onatopp Things

No one knows for sure whether Russia has just put in a meaningful bottom after essentially crashing in recent weeks. In these types of situations, it is usually better to have well-defined trading plans in lieu of boldly declaring a major bottom or instead that a prolonged crash will resume within short order. RUSL is sure to be on many...

Reversal Fresh Out of the Oven

Crude oil, energy stocks, and Russia, the three markets which have effectively been crashing of late, are staging upside reversals this morning. This type of action could easily be accomplishing the act of punishing latecomer shorts who were pushing their luck this week. On the XLE, ETF for the energy sector, daily chart below, note that we...
