Trapped in a Prison Market

Imagine, if you would, that you had taken a nap in July 2018. You did not wake up until this morning to read this blog post. During that nap, the IWM (ETF for small cap stocks in the Russell 2000 Index) has made no net, or overall, progress and is trading at the same levels it was some five years and three months ago.  On a shorter-term...

Satanic Black Magic Into the Weekend

The easiest thing to do right now is throw a Paulie Walnuts-type tantrum  and decry today's pop in the VIX as merely overzealous hedging into the weekend in light of the Israel/Hamas escalation, bound to lead to a VIX collapse next week.  My take, as you might imagine, is a bit different: The VIX has already been working on a higher base for...

White Collar Tastes; Blue Collar Grind

After a hot CPI print this morning we have some incredibly familiar Nasdaq-versus-the-world price action playing out as we speak. At the risk of being redundant regarding that glaring divergences across a structurally weak equities (and credit) market, I would much rather focus this morning on actionable trade ideas: The nitty-gritty blue...

Shaken and Stirred, Yet Unperturbed

An amorphous, overall trend-less equities market for months has been the main takeaway for swing traders, lending itself to natural frustration. Sure, the bond market has been selling off, and we have been on top of that with Members, trimming a TBT play into the recent pop in rates before the cooling off this week.  However, when it comes to...

At the End of the Day

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq, respectively below on their daily charts, have easily been the two strongest indices of late, as virtually all other indices are below their own 200-day moving averages.  But not the S&P and Nasdaq. Hence, instead of cherry-picking the weaklings, let us focus on these two.  Simply put, at the end of the day (or perhaps...

Isn't That Just Like a Commodity Market?

Over the weekend Israel declared war following a surprise attack from Hamas. It is a rather convenient fact, indeed, that crude oil had been sharply pulling back for about the last week and a half following a prior, steep rally, rending this gap up perhaps just the start of a new move higher rather than a typical sell-the-news setup. Commodity...

Holding it All Up

My bearish bet on the bond market continues to work well, as I trimmed some more of a TBT long position which I have actually held for most of this year with Members.  That said, the persistent and seemingly omnipresent bid in equities is out in full force, once again, with stocks flipping green as I write this despite the red-hot inflationary...

It is a New Battlefield; Adjust Accordingly

The team with the longest winning streak in New Jersey high school football currently (33 games and counting) is Caldwell High School, a program with which I am quite familiar. The Chiefs, located in West Caldwell, have been a powerhouse for a school of their size--especially a public one--for many, many decades, with several state...
