Your Cabin in the Woods is Not as Safe as You Think

With the broad market correction continuing to be the controlling factor regarding most equities at the moment, it is worth looking into the idea that many of the "safe" stocks housed in the XLP ETF for consumer staples may be ripe to participate in the correction themselves. As a market correction deepens, bears are notorious for showing those...

Southwestern Tough to Survive This Saloon

Crude oil bulls have found themselves in the wrong saloon, and have yet to alleviate the situation in any way, shape, or form. Just this morning, for example, we have another gap down not just in crude itself, but also the OIH XLE XOP ETFs for energy-related stocks.  Oil has been noticeably weakening since early-October, perhaps coinciding with...

Is Tesla the Leader We Should Really Be Looking At?

One of the most challenging aspects of being a speculator, in any form, is simultaneously having strong opinions grounded in your core process while also being able to continually reevaluate that thesis to see if it continues to stand up to the scrutiny of markets.  In other words, we have to do our homework, place our bets, track our bets...

A Test from Above

The nagging weakness in crude oil is gaining more attention by the day, as "Black Gold" has been acting more like, well, gold-gold, in recent weeks. Our attention, frankly, has been focused more on the intriguing and impressive strength in natural gas, both in absolute terms and of course relative to crude. In fact, as crude has made...

Unprecedented Thanksgiving Week Travel Should Add Fuel to the Fire

In addition to the usual stress associated with the holidays, the TSA is out today  predicting a very hectic travel week in what is already considered to be the busiest week of the year for planes, trains, and automobiles. Whether or not the TSA's prediction comes to fruition, in that agency's infinite wisdom, remains to be seen. But armed...

The Race Takes a Bad Turn for Bears

With the midterm elections now out of the way, combined with a particularly strong earnings report out of Twilio, the market seems more focused on rotating back into tech growth stocks than anything else this morning.  As I write this, TWLO has already printed fresh all-time highs and it up nearly 28%, quite impressive indeed considering the...

Thirsty for Momentum

Part of the nature of corrective markets is that they do not so much as scare you out as they do wear you out with choppy action and a vast array of head-fakes along the way. And on this midterm election Tuesday, bulls are turning in a decent effort this morning in the Nasdaq to try to reignite some momentum growth plays, albeit with the QQQ...

The Duck, I Says

Even with rates going higher and The Fed on track to raise at least once more before 2018 is over (likely in December), it is fascinating to see those sectors which one would think should suffer from higher rates flourish of late. Specifically, the high-yielding consumer staples, REITs, and utilities have functioned as impressive safety trades...

Forever Elusive

It almost seems poetic that natural gas, after years upon years of endless new lows and failed rallies, would truly improve from a technical perspective and grow stronger by the month as equity markets look as shaky as they have in quite some time. Forever elusive, indeed.  On the UNG daily chart, below, which is the ETF for the commodity, note...

Not Marriage Material

As one of our Members astutely noted earlier, the S&P 500 Index's ETF, SPY, basically tested its 200-day moving average from underneath in the pre-market surge this morning. Whether or not that will suffice to render the current relief rally near its termination date remains to be seen. However, what we do know is that it remains tough to trust...

Get That Swagger Back

The markets, not to mention the general competitive nature of capitalism, have a unique way of humbling the most cocksure players, in due time. Indeed, it was not too long ago that Under Armour stormed onto the retail sportswear scene and took no prisoners, justifiably strutting around the sector as if they were the future. That...

Three Card Monte Market

In front of Apple earnings this evening, equities are doing their best to bide their time in the form of three-card monte type of action. Specifically, the small caps in the IWM noticeably lagged yesterday's rally (and nearly closed red), but are now well out in front of the tape as tech is the laggard du jour.  As long as this type of three...

Limited Visibility

Just because we are not yet sure if the market has truly bottomed does not preclude us from making some near-term assumptions.  Simply put, if the major indices follow the Dow Jones Industrial Average higher to their respective 200-day moving averages (the Dow already tested it today and is showing no initial signs of failure) then it becomes...

Breaking Down Barriers

Working our way through the final hour of trading leading up to Facebook earnings tonight, bulls have performed well today when their backs were against the wall as the SPY probed a $264 breakdown at several junctures.  However, when it come to upside follow-through, we know bulls have fumbled many a time when the $267 upside level has been...
