Manipulative Machinations

This market sure is putting on the moves to try and suck in every last speculator, as we all eagerly await more clarity on the issue of whether this tape is bottoming for even a respite from the downtrend, or instead is gearing up for a washout of epic proportions.  What we do know is that the VIX is resisting collapse, staying noticeably firm...

Operation: Live to Fight Another Day

Risk happens fast. Market like these show just how quickly precious, hard-fought gains can evaporate during corrections.  While many insist on being heroes and bottom-fishing what is obviously a deepening correction with a distinct inability to hold bounces, the likely better strategy is to respect the open-strong/close-weak correction...

The Reality of the Situation

As it turns, viewing both leaders like AMZN GOOGL NFLX and exhilarating M&A like the IBM for RHT deal today as potential knights in shining armour to help rescue bulls from a correcting market is a much tougher proposition than many had anticipated. Currently, all major indices are well off their morning highs, with the QQQ now down a stunning...

Outline of a Cold Autumn Market

A $34 billion IBM for RHT deal in software at a hefty premium seems to have helped propel another attempt at a relief rally in the broad market this morning. As I write this, most of the major averages are higher anywhere from 1.3% to 1.66%. Once again, the pertinent issue for us is whether bulls can hang onto these early gains, a fairly...

Selling Spilling Over

One of the more interesting aspects about the current market pullback has been that one can almost feel just how stubbornly bulls have been fighting each and every dip. The valiant attempts to rekindle the glory of buy-the-dip-to-profit-from-V-shaped-rallies-to-fresh-highs of prior pullbacks is now being soundly rebuked by the market, as...

An Interesting Retail Thesis for Halloween

Two of our Members noted separate ideas today which I think can be fused together to create an intriguing pair trade. Both ideas are in the retail sector, but one of them is looking up while the other is on the cusp of a meaningful breakdown.  In a corrective market, the notion of a pair trade tends to take on more significance, as a long/short...

Ho Ho Ho for Arlo?

To be sure, recent IPO Arlo Technologies has had unfortunate timing. The stock has been mercilessly pummeled since late-August as most tech-related names either cooled off or began to correct sharply. And the the last few weeks of broad market deterioration have only sought to pour more salt in ARLO's wounds.  In front of earnings tonight,...

This is Really Gonna Hurt

Simply put, this market still smacks of complacency much more than a buy-the-blood scenario, as the VIX has barely shot up today (by its own standards, not a percentage move), and remains in the low/mid-20s even though equities thoroughly got stuffed in any and all bounce attempts.  With the belly of the earnings beast approaching, I suspect...

The Naz and All That Jazz

One of the first observations we made with Members out of the gate this morning was that the Nasdaq was notably lagging the other major averages. If bulls did not fix that situation sooner than later, we were looking to see if the rest of the market would give up any semblance of an early bounce and head on lower, especially given that the...

Appreciate the Full View

The Wilshire 5000 Total Market Index, below on the weekly timeframe, measures performance of all U.S. equity securities with readily available price data. In other words, the Wilshire arguably gives the ultimate birds-eye view of the market at any given time. Despite the bounce off session lows today, which is holding so far, it is worth noting...

Sink or Swim Mentality for a Sink or Swim Market

"sink or swim" - to fail or succeed entirely by one's own efforts Speaking from experience, corrective markets often magnify the flaws in many traders' strategies and discipline (or lack thereof). Indeed, downtrending markets are unforgiving and, at times, ruthless in their aggressive price discovery mechanisms in terms of running traders out...

Can You Lay Off the Action?

No one travels to the casino with the intention of folding hand after hand in poker, nor to walk away from a cold blackjack table. But such is life as a speculator, where the action is soggy and most trades seem like a reach. At times, the best trade is no trade, and laying off the action can seem like one of the best trades to make in lieu of...

Getting Way Down There

As per our morning discussion, the weakness in financials may be getting plenty of attention but we ought not overlooked the glaring, continued selling in the homebuilders.  With this in mind, let us examine the XHB ETF for another perspective to see that the XHB's monthly RSI is now at its lowest point since 2009.  On the monthly...

Lonely Homes; But Misery Loves Company

Housing bulls must be feeling awfully lonely these days, as the XHB and ITB sector ETFs have performed remarkably poorly over the last month.  In fact, you might argue that the housing sector's abrupt (back in September) but now-persistent weakness is causing a good deal of consternation among the broad market, too. Either way, it behooves us...
