They Ain't Pretty No More

While the likes of SCTY and SUNE may still be in play as potential long setups in the solar sector, the reality is that most solars continue to fizzle out just when they need to get going to the upside.  The action in YGE in recent quarters is still a fair warning about just how risky playing the solars can truly be, with Yingli cratering from...

Big Summer for Big Blue

IBM, being the second most heavily-weighted Dow component and Nifty Fifty relic, is still relevant through no fault of its own.  On the updated monthly chart, below, "Big Blue" may finally be ripe to make its next big move after a steep breakdown to conclude 2014 and confirm a major topping patter, followed by a multi-month grind higher to the...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

On this Memorial Day weekend, The Messenger (2009) tackles the most somber side of war head on in a brutally cold and honest way, without any of the "action scenes" we have become accustomed to in even the most graphic of war films.  Ben Foster, Samantha Morton, and Woody Harrelson dominate the screen, with Harrelson delivering one of his...

Managing Winners with Discipline

Losses are, simply put, part and parcel of being trader. Losses are something I also never shy away from, adhering to my philosophy of religiously cutting underperforming positions, preferring to protect precious capital, freeing it back up and avoiding major drawdowns.  But managing winning positions is also a discipline unto itself.

And for those of you trading on a Friday before a long, holiday weekend...

Treading Water Into Summer

The small caps in the Russell are lagging a bit today still, as seen on the updated 30-minute chart for the IWM ETF, below. The breakout attempts have thus far been faded, and it is with monitoring the highlighted channel for resolution. In other parts of the tape, it is still a stock-by-stock situation, with BABA sustaining a bid while another...
