A Weird Vibe: Twitter is Down

It looks like not only shares of Twitter are down today, dipping after a nice rally, but the platform itself has been down for the last twenty minutes or so. In Twitter time, that is a long period to go with an outage, and this is the longest outage I can actually remember for the platform in a good while.  As for TWTR the stock, I still love...

If They Go Down, They're Taking Us with Them

Despite the Dow up by triple-digits this morning, thanks in large part to UNH rallying on Trump Administration news, plenty of names on my screen are red with little in the way of an inspiring bounce yet. Small caps continue to be a good day-to-day "tell" for risk appetite in this market. So it is no surprising to see the IWM ETF down by about...

It's Always a Rough Trip to Value Town

As the market is prone to do at times when it corrects, some small cap names seem to inevitably fall through the cracks even after the broad market has recovered.  Case in point: Secureworks Corp (SCWX), currently sporting a $1 billion market cap in the cybersecurity space, enjoyed a glorious late-January/early-February rally only to give it...

Extending the Ride

The slightest hint at a Fed rate cut later this year by Chair Powell this morning apparently served to pop futures higher into the open. As a result, the S&P 500 Index surpassed 3,000 for the first time ever, though that factoid may amount to more ballyhoo than actual substance, since that price level has no technical significance and, at best,...

Appreciate the Symmetry

Alongside small caps in the IWM, the semiconductors were an integral part of both the May selloff and June snapback rally.  Currently, the semis are trying to reemerge from a controlled, multi-day bull flag on the SMH, sector ETF pictured on the daily chart, below. Note the last several sessions featuring low sell volume as price drifted lower...

Let's Crack Open the Other PBR This Summer

PBR is shorthand for Pabst Blue Ribbon, a classic American pilsner. It is also the ticker symbol for Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) a semi-public Brazilian oil giant headquartered in Rio.  As Members know, Brazilian stocks have quietly been on a tear in recent weeks, with the EWZ country ETF outperforming China and printing multi-month...

Low and Slow

With negative headlines and weakness in shares of both AAPL and DB this morning, we have some broad market softness starting the post-holiday week off on a dour note. The pace of the selling in the first hour or so smacks more of a "low and slow" market being grilled rather than a fast burn for bears, which is fairly typical of summer action...

Find Your Inner Trading Peace This Summer

Naturally, it is a bit rich to assign too much significance to any one trading session, let alone the Friday after the Fourth of July. Nonetheless, bulls have done an admirable job of stabilizing an initial thrust lower after a strong jobs report caused some stir that the Fed will not cut rates later this year.  As I write this, I see plenty of...
