Here's the Real Battle This Earnings Season

With markets closed tomorrow for Good Friday, stocks are mixed this morning as bottom-callers in Treasuries got caught into another spike in rates.  As you might expect, the Nasdaq and many growth issues are not thrilled with rates pushing higher yet as TLT sells off further.  However, from my vantage point the true battle awaits us all in the...

No Big Deal, Just Eleven Year Highs

The XME ETF, below on its monthly chart, is printing levels not seen since August 2011 today, as coals, steels, and other materials housed in the ETF continue to get bid. As you can see, the way we got here is also relevant: Price broke out the last three months from a prior, tight base, which seems to reinforce the notion of an impressive...

Navigating the Bond Bear Landscape

Historically hot PPI and JPM earnings selloff be darned, this market looks to be attached at the hip to the happenings in Treasuries.  With rates on the 10-Year Note easing a bit off widely-discussed overbought conditions, TLT (ETF for Treasuries' prices, inverse to rates) illustrates as much with a bounce from oversold conditions, seen on the...

How Do We Spell This Relief Rally? D-R-U-N-K

While I try to avoid the alarmist, sensationalist type of market analysis, the stark historical reality is that markets which act poorly and fail to rally when they *should* (i.e., this morning after the much ballyhooed used car sales prices fell) become uniquely dangerous and vulnerable to wiping out much lower.  I am becoming increasingly...

Let's All Trust Used Car Salesmen Now

Despite the headline that inflation rose at fastest pace since 1981 in March as the CPI (consumer price index) jumped 8.5% annually, markets initially looked beyond that and found mustard seeds in the idea that used car prices dropped 3.8% (even if 35% higher than last year).  The drop in used car prices was then used as evidence that inflation...

Which Way for Silver?

As rates keep pushing higher, we had an impressive opening pop in the precious metals only to see the usual fade.  The good news for bulls is that they seem to be closing well here. Headed into the CPI print tomorrow morning, another big test looms for the metals. But the SLV daily chart, below, continues to look ripe for a fresh breakout...

It's Winning Time for Wheat

While oil fumbles and stumbles through what could still easily be a bullish consolidation, other commodities are back at it and threatening imminent, fresh breakouts higher amid the tech selloff.  Wheat is my favorite at the moment, given the pristine weekly chart bull flag for the commodity's ETN, highlighted below. It has now been a little...

It's Time to Turn the Amen Corner

While it certainly turned out to be a choppy final few weeks of March for precious miners, there are two bullish aspects about the complex worth noting right now: 1) Very few market players and pundits are gung-ho bullish on the group, for obvious reason--The precious miners have been heartbreakers for a good while now. It is simply too easy to...
