An Oasis in a Big Forest

It is easy to lose track of the individual stocks holding up very well into this market pullback, given the news flow and volatility spike.  But in the event that once the Fed and Brexit news is behind us the market resumes higher this summer, I suspect names like Zendesk, which we have noted previously, will continue to outperform. ZEN, like...

Do One Thing with the Rumor, Do Another with the News

Before the Fed Meeting Announcement tomorrow afternoon, and then the Brexit vote next week, it is interesting to see various markets aggressively price in certain outcomes. Specifically, banks and Treasuries seems to be pricing in no rate hike by the Fed and rather dovish language to boot, with the XLF (financial sector ETF) falling hard over...

Back Above the Mendoza Line

The CBOE Market Volatility Index, or VIX, which is considered to measure fear according to the options market, is shooting higher today after flashing signs of life last week for the first time in a good while.  Back over 20, the VIX is crossing over the "Mendoza Line," so to speak, where it begins to take on some significance of typically a...

Choose Substance Over Style

On the periphery of the commodities' complex for most traders can usually be found the likes of steels and solars, even chemical plays. The flashy, enticing plays seem to be solars--After all, solar power has repeatedly been claimed as the energy of the future, cost-effective and green, while steels, chemicals, etc., are seen as old hat. ...

We Know Where the Bird Turns from Red to Blue

In the wake of the MSFT for LNKD buyout earlier this morning, other social media/internet plays like TWTR and YELP initially rallied at the open. YELP is back to red as I write this, but has been coming on since its last earnings report and subsequent reaction, above its 200-day simple moving average.  TWTR is still green, though. And after...

Sunday Matinée at Market Chess Cinemas

Unforgiven (1992) is arguably the best anti-violence film ever made; ironic since on the surface it appears to be a rather violent film. In light of the mass shooting overnight in Orlando, I am going to pick  Unforgiven  again, in case you still have not seen it.  Directed by and starring Clint Eastwood, along with great performances from...

The Greenback is Still Hanging on, and That Makes Things Messy

Around the same time the U.S. Dollar ETF, UUP, made it clear it would not relinquish its opening gains this morning after the first hour of trading or so, gold miners faded to red virtually across the board. Moreover, equities as a whole are coming in and at sessions lows as I write this, while UUP pushes session highs.  Now, the inverse...
