Back in a Classy Silver Play; Chess Moves

I just went long SLW at $23.36 with a stop-loss below $21.80. This position equates to roughly 4% of my trading portfolio capital. I am playing this premier silver miner to continue to upside. I had previously traded SLW as it tried to emerge from the highlighted inverse head and shoulders bottom, seen on the daily chart, below. Miners have,...

From Russia with Head Fakes

In light of S&P cutting Russia to "Junk," and the Russian Ruble plunging to six-week lows (read full text and see full story here ) the RSX, country ETF for Russia, is giving up its apparent upside breakout last week. I had been looking to swing short Russia via a long RUSS (triple-short Russia ETF) position, but elected not to hold it...

A High Noon Look at the Market

The market is slowing down a bit today, as we could easily see a pause in front of the FOMC Announcement later this week. On the 30-minute chart for the SPY, ETF of the S&P 500 Index, note the support trendline (light blue) is still broken from Friday, which has me still in my SDS long as a way of shorting the S&P. Until that is recaptured I...

A Good Place to Look for Pyramids

That 20-day simple moving average (orange line, below) on the following GDXJ daily chart is a logical place to look to see if aggressive bulls will "pyramid" into their positions, or add into them. The GDXJ is the ETF for the junior gold miners, which are typically an excellent gauge of risk appetite in the precious metals and miners complex,...

Reading the Morning Tape

The market fought back from its losses in the futures last night. But, as I write this, we are in the red as far as the major indices are concerned. However, beyond my SDS long (meaning I am long the ultra-short S&P 500 Index ETF), it remains a tough environment for macro bears unless and until biotechnology stocks give up the ghost. On the...

Stuck in a Krispy Kreme Sandwich

The weekly chart for Krispy Kreme may very well sum up the current state of the market You can see the prior, strong if not steep multi-year bull run, followed by a pullback and recent consolidation. Bulls will argue the chart looks ripe to spring much higher from a coiled base, while bears contend the stock has already topped out and is simply...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

An excellent World War II/Holocaust film that does not get nearly the credit it deserves is the Louis Malle-directed French masterpiece, Au Revoir Les Enfants (1987). This gritty and gripping film follows a French boarding school run by priests that seems to be isolated from WWII. That all changes when a secret emerges that one of the boys is...

The Late, Great Chip Reese on Gambling Concepts

The following is a video of something I have posted before–An interview with the late-poker legend Chip Reese. Over the years in my blog posts, I have made numerous analogies of stock trading to playing poker, which I believe to be the form of gambling most like the stock market. The late Chip Reese is widely considered to be the best cash game...
