Everybody Just Say the Word, Oh, Ches-Ches-Chesapeake

Serious selling (and halts) in Chesapeake Energy today, along with more glaring weakness in the European Deutsche Bank, caught many headlines today.  It is interesting to see the likes of COP SLB XOM in the energy patch holding green here, perhaps a sign that the energy selling is close to abating.  However, calling a bottom to this market has...

No Man Can Eat Fifty Eggs

With the broad market sell-off still playing out today, one has to wonder when panic and fear will start to set in. Bounces have been tepid, not just today but in recent weeks by and large. And the VIX has yet to see anything close to a fearful spike higher.  Underwater longs seem to be hell-bent on seeing just how much pain they can take, not...

Bursting the Dam of Support

Equities continue to get pounded this morning, and it is likely no coincidence that the Dollar/Yen currency cross is also losing a major price area, too. As the Dollar/Yen chart, seen below on the daily timeframe, moves lower, the Yen moves higher. A higher Yen is not what the Bank of Japan had in mind a few weeks ago when it moved to NIRP...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

Serpico (1973) is one of those iconic films from the 1970s, starring Al Pacino as a gutsy New York cop who serves as a whistleblower to corruption on the force at the expense of any semblance of minor peace and harmony. This film is based on a true story.  Legendary director Sidney Lumet captures the bad bravery which the real-life Frank...

Defense Wins Championships (and Enables You to Survive in Markets)

As we approach Super Bowl 50 this Sunday between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos, it is a good reminder that, despite the well-deserved attention both teams' offensive quarterbacks have received, the Panthers and Broncos also play great defense.  Whichever team plays better defense on Sunday, in all likelihood, will win the...

This Chart Has a Definite O Face

On the back of our recent analysis about some crowded trades in the "safe" sectors and stocks, like AWK, we also have the REITs looking long in the tooth, or perhaps in need of at least a respite.  SPG is the top holding in the IYR, and it sure does look dodgy on long-term timeframes.  But MAA is also getting clocked today, too, after a...

Spelling Out Fear Before We Can Be Greedy

“Be Fearful When Others Are Greedy and Greedy When Others Are Fearful” ― Warren Buffett Without question, Mr. Buffett's famous Wall Street axiom always makes for a great soundbite.  Applied to the current market, however, even with a persistently weak Nasdaq and multi-year winners like NFLX and SBUX which are suddenly unable to muster even a...

The Path of Least Credulity

The rotation into and sharp rallies in the global materials/energy complex, away from extended long-term leaders like FANG, HD, SBUX, even AWK, today needs to be monitored closely in the coming weeks for sustainability. In front of the jobs number tomorrow morning it is also tough to draw too many conclusions, especially regarding precious...
