Christmas Collage

Merry Christmas! On this day in 1776, General George Washington launches a gutsy attack and crosses the Delaware River with 5,400 troops, hoping to surprise a Hessian force celebrating Christmas at their winter quarters in Trenton, New Jersey. This was a pivotal moment during the Revolutionary War, cementing Washington's legacy to make the...

Two Ideas to Consider Before Christmas Officially Begins

A few moments before the early close today at 1pm EST, keep an eye later this week an next week on AMZN as another short setup. On the daily chart, first below, note the potential bear wedge breakdown (yellow arrows) after a bull trap or false breakout several weeks back. AMZN remains a damaged chart in a downtrend for all of 2014. And on the...

They're Not Giving Up on the V

Another V-shaped rally back to recent highs on the S&P 500 Index, seen below on the daily chart, leaves many market players in an interesting spot as we head into the final two holiday-shortened weeks of 2014. I did not do too much swing trading this week, not only due to the overnight gaps and wild price moves in both directions but also...

Capable of a Monstrous Squeeze Attack

I still view IMAX as an explosive short squeeze candidate to the upside, especially as we head into the big Hollywood Christmas film releases. The stock remains very heavily-shorted. And observing the technicals on the daily chart, below, if the $28.70 area below can now hold as newfound support the thesis has a chance to work. In addition,...

Guarding the Considerable Time Fortress

Markets are initially surging higher off the Fed's latest statement, as shorts into the meeting are getting squeezed quite violently. If we do see some a reprieve from the selling into Christmas, I still think Blue Nile can outperform, seen bouncing back nicely on the daily chart, below. $37 remains the trigger above, but the low float/short...

Still Cruising for a Trip Up the Nile

Dip-buyers are making their usual stand today, with small caps leading a ferocious bounce off the morning gap down and not yet slowing down. If we do get the typical bounce or drift into year-end, I still think Blue Nile can work well as a long idea in the specialty retail space. The low float/heavily-shorted online jeweler is capable of...

Two Competitive Plays for the Holiday Shopping Season

BONT NILE are two laggard retail plays  which could easily see more of a bid into Christmas. With Black Friday upon us, both stocks are acting well today. BONT is a beaten-down chart and trying to move up off the "right side" of a long, potential base bottom. And NILE is still potentially bull-flagging under well-defined $37 resistance. Keep an...
