A Roundabout Way to Get Back

After topping out in late-2013, high end auction house Sotheby's is essentially back up to where it was in the summer 2014, two years ago now.  As you can see on the zoomed-out monthly, below, BID acted as a proxy for bull/bear cycles since the early-1990s, for a variety of reasons.  However, since 2013 no such close correlation has followed...

Explore This Overlooked Segment in Energy

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

Shot in black and white, the crime/drama noir The Man Who Wasn’t There (2001) is probably one of the more overlooked and under-watched films which Joel and Ethan Coen have written and directed. The cast is first rate, including Billy Bob Thornton, Frances McDormand, and the late, great James Gandolfini. The film makes for a solid summer...

Bristol-Myers Squeamish at Prior Highs

Although its cancer treatment failing to meet its goal in a lung cancer trial is the obvious reason for BMY's stock getting drilled 15% today, it is worth looking at the long-term chart and understanding that these types of moves seem more likely than usual for the name, On the monthly chart, below, the healthcare titan rallied directly into...

It's Not Risk on, Risk off: It's Rates on, Rates Off

Unlike previous market cycles where we would see a "risk on" and "risk off" alternating pattern, with the Dollar surging and deflation the de facto concern as equities and commodities were pummeled (and vice versa when the Dollar sold off) in unison, this cycle is hinting at something slightly more complex.  In fact, with this morning's jobs...

Time to Negotiate Some Jobs

In front of PCLN earnings tonight, then the jobs report tomorrow morning before the bell, stocks remain in a very narrow range dating back to July 14th on the S&P 500 Index. Much like Tesla Motors, which is still stuck in its own multi-year range, PCLN is a market leader which has actually been sideways since early-2014, too.  On the monthly...

An Arbitrage Play of Sorts

Along with Disney, McDonald's is quietly turning in a lackluster performance in the market.  Just as with DIS, MCD may be suffering the effects of a long in the tooth multi-year bull run, as the seemingly can't-miss blue chip name has noticeably lagged other fast food players like JACK QSR YUM since Memorial Day.  But one name have played...

Close Range Photography

Tomorrow morning's jobs report may very well prove to be the excuse this rangebound market at all-time highs needs to commence its next directional move.  On the S&P 500 Index daily timeframe, below, note the Bollinger Bands "pinched" after the narrow sideways movement since mid-July.  From periods of compression in the market often come...
