You Know What They're Looking At? Us

The relief rally since Christmas has been convincing enough to the point where one could easily (and many have) taken shorter-term timeframes and inferred from the price action that a brand new uptrend has already been set in motion.  That working thesis may eventually come to fruition. However, until we see actual evidence on the daily...

Masquerading Market

This market has been masquerading as various beasts for a while now, be it the horrifyingly epic December market on the cusp of a 1929-style crash, or the one-way drift we have seen of late on the indices even if the action below the surface remains mixed. To be sure, seeing the indices up again this morning, led by the Dow considerably...

Still Chugging Along

Despite multiple opportunities for the broad market to roll back over from an obvious confluence of potential resistance levels (the 50-day simple moving average on virtually all of the major index charts, retracing up to range from late-last year from which we broke down in December, the big, rough 2,600 level on the S&P 500 Index, etc.), the...

Back to Boring or Back in the Trap?

The indices seem to be plodding along here, with nary a worry about BREXIT developments, U.S. government shutdown, running directly into potentially devastation overhead resistance, nor some initially weak bank earnings. Indeed, the low volatility grind higher is reminiscent much more of a smooth bull market than a sloppy, violent bear--Unless,...

Time for Tech and MedTech to Back Up Their Big Talk

As we know, the relief rally since Christmas has largely centered around software strength as well as some M&A deals in biotechnology and overall strength in quite a few segments of healthcare and medical technology (medtech).  At the moment, we have both the QQQ (large cap tech) and IWM (small caps) back above their 50-day simple moving...

War Games

Lost in the shuffle of the strength in software and medical technology is the resurgent uranium miner, Cameco.  On the updated daily chart, below, it is hard to quarrel with anything from a technical standpoint. CCJ is printing multi-month highs today on surging buy volume (bottom pane of chart). It is always a knee-jerk reaction to think of...

Adding Flavor to a Salty Market

Despite glaring underperformance by the small caps in the IWM ETF early on, quite a few tech stocks are bouncing back nicely from some really drubbings yesterday. PLAN, for example, a late-2018 IPO in the hot software space, sold off harshly into the bell on Monday but is managing a more-than-respectable 6% bounce-back as I write this.  Still,...

That's a Long Island for Ya

It'll Do Until the Mess Gets Here

Opening weakness in equities is being chalked up to a variety of causes, be it the government shutdown dragging on, poor overnight China data, or underwhelming earnings thus far into a brand new reporting season.  Regardless of the actual proximate cause, though, the nature of the selling this morning is not yet violent enough to anticipate a...

Welcome Back, Welcome Back, Welcome Back

Here comes natty, back over its 200-day moving average on its ETF daily chart below. Buying natural gas off support has worked well compared to buying breakouts since last Labor Day. Still it is worth looking at natty for a 200-day buy spot next week if the strength persists, especially now that many people forgot about it despite us being the...

Out with the Old

Despite an omnipresent group of stubborn shorts, or perhaps because of them in part, Tesla continues to notably outperform the "FANG" plus Apple (not to mention NVDA SQ) prior leadership names to little fanfare. Recently, TSLA bears had every chance to break the name back under its 200-day moving average and get the ball rolling downhill are...

A Pedestrian Roll Down the Valley

Bears were almost assuredly looking for a more violent pullback this morning, as the price action thus far smacks more of digestion after an epic feast in the form of a sharp relief rally since Christmas.  At the moment, the major averages are still comfortably holding above their respective 20-day simple moving averages with little in the way...

A Bit Too Much Tap-Dancing for My Taste

(Gregory Hines in Tap [1989]) The market may very well continue to chug on higher, but the risk/reward proposition for longs is seemingly growing more unfavorable by the hour. Case in point: The rising channel on the SPY, ETF for the S&P 500 Index, which we observed earlier this week is growing more concerning today.  Specifically, on the...

FOMO Fatigue for a Drowsy Market

Another early pop off the opening bell looks to be fading as I write this. And this time around I am less emboldened by the prospect of buyers immediately swooping back in. As a result, I lightened up on a few of my quick-hitting swings longs inside Market Chess Subscription Services, and am inclined to let any pauses or pullbacks play out a...

Retail Footwear: Three's Company?

Lost in the shuffle of the rally in software stocks seems to be the extreme strength in select retail plays, especially relating to footwear, like CROX and FL. We have been tracking both with Members and now are looking for more to join the party as there are quite a few names in the space which could play catch-up, but one in particular with a...
