Ducking Out Early Today

I turn 40 years old today, so I am going to duck out of here early. 40 years of age is a life milestone which I do not take for granted, as I have known more than a few people over the years who will never get to enjoy this privilege.  As for markets, the seemingly endless QQQ drift higher this summer remains intact. And that will likely...

Epic Summer Drift Upstream

Large cap tech continue to dominate again this morning, as the seemingly endless drift upstream in the QQQ ETF galvanizes bulls in names like AAPL AMZN FB TSLA, even SPCE after its recent pullback. While the move higher in rates (read: lower TLT) this week is likely to have ramifications going forward if it persists, the U.S. Dollar dipping red...

Extensive Testing

Various virus-related plays are getting crushed this morning, namely CODX INO NVAX, even the online schooling and curricula play, LRN.  Thus, with the major indices snapping back higher off yesterday's weakness, the issue is whether we should be onboard with the market's implication today that the economy is, in fact, on the cusp of a...

U-V-X-Y: You Ain't Got No Alibi!

With political gamesmanship and posturing taking hold in D.C. surrounding the latest round of Stimulus measures for Americans, markets are limping towards the closing bell today as this morning's Russia vaccine play fades under the scrutiny of its veracity.  One gets the sense that a sleepy summer VIX is ripe to wake up from what has been...

Vaccines of the World Unite! All You Have to Lose is Your Efficacy

Despite a fair amount of understandable skepticism greeting news this morning of Russian approval for a Coronavirus vaccine, futures reacted sharply especially in the Dow and small cap-led Russell.  As it stands now, coming up on ninety minutes into the cash session, the same dynamic of the mega cap value names in the Dow (BA CAT JPM, to name...

The New Reality of Big City Life

Since the surge in big city crime, protests, even riots, since just about Memorial Day, we have been looking for shares of ShotSpotter (SSTI) inside Market Chess Subscription Services to eventually get going. As often happens on Wall Street, though, it took the latest earnings report to wake the name up. Now that SSTI is clearly in play as an...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

The post-Civil War period in American history, pretty much taking us through the end of the 19th century, tends to be one of the more overlooked portions in the story of our republic. However, over the last five years or so I have becoming increasingly interested in it, namely due to the all-time great television series, "Hell on Wheels." In...

The "Dollar is Trash" is the New, "Men Are Trash"

With the UUP ETF (for the U.S. Dollar currency versus a basket of developed economies' currencies) bouncing off the long-term $25 level we examined yesterday in this piece , the precious metals and miners are finally cooling off after an exhilarating run. Be that as it may, I see UUP is well off session highs as I write this, placing the...
