Running on a Specific Platform

Stocks are mostly still running here into the bell, as the majority of today's gains held true. Bulls look to close us back over 2120 on the S&P 500 Index, a good first step for them as volatility gets crushed.  Priceline earnings after the bell should shed some light as to whether this leader can remain intact, given that PCLN's chart has been...

Come and Get Me, Copper

Now that plenty of market players and pundits alike have trivialized, if not mocked, the lack of correlation between copper and risk appetite for a while now, it would be very typical of markets, indeed, for copper to now suddenly begin to take on global significance to markets, again.  Either way, on its own merits copper has been basing...

Fall Back, Spring Ahead Into Election Day

This morning's sizable gap higher across the major indices is surely about politics...or is it?

However, there is also an excellent film titled  King of the Hill (1993), which I am going to recommend tonight.  Directed by the great Steven Soderbergh,...

Drain. The. Shorts.

Hyperbole aside, it is far from an explosive rally in the market today. However, bulls may have done just enough to stave off an imminent washout, which became a higher risk the longer we went without sufficiently reacting to oversold conditions--Even lowly GPRO is staging a reversal to green as I write this, perhaps indicative of short-term...

A Simple Observation

Despite a GPRO earnings blow-up and crude oil swooning again, stocks are finally reacting a bit to oversold conditions this morning.  Specifically, the S&P 500 Index, on the daily chart, below, is showing some life off its 200-day simple moving average (yellow line). The 200-day is a widely-watched reference point, even by non-technicians who...

Beyond that, the coffee...

Back Above the Mendoza Line as Baseball Season Ends

We last looked at the "Mendoza Line" on the VIX back in June before BREXIT.  Specifically, 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...
