Storm Clouds Not Going Away Yet

After a promising relief rally yesterday we are being reminded this morning that this market is likely still working through a corrective period. As I write this, the Dow is off by 300 points, compelling me to take gains in longs and take off a NTNX position basically flat from where I bought it.  At issue now is whether the market completely...

A Fine Backdrop

It is always intriguing to see commodity-related stocks outperform a the underlying commodity, such as we are seeing with some of the exploration firms today like CHK RRC SWN. Typically, when the stocks in question outperform the underlying commodity it is a bullish sign of risk-on in the complex. A classic example would be seeing the gold...

I'm Seeing Funny Things with Pot Stocks, Man

One would objectively think that the hot money sectors in recent months would suffer violent, unforgiving drawdowns in times of market pullbacks/corrections where the major averages sharply come in to test their respective 200-day simple moving averages. The thinking goes that highest beta, riskiest sectors which appeared to be generous, cute...

There is Such a Thing as Trying Too Hard

The great irony of speculation and indeed virtually all forms of gambling is that a speculator's intense competitive spirit can often be the downfall. In other words, if a speculator has a background as an athlete in competitive sports, the very notion of losing or not winning is seen as somber, dark event.  But to think of trading as akin to,...

Market Corrections Test Your Mental Toughness More Than Anything Else

Unlike smooth market uptrends, when large market players (institutions) of size are typically cool, calm, collected, and often buy stocks in the face of even the most bearish of news, market corrections often feature a certain degree of wild indecision as those big players unload stocks or at least refrain from buying them. It is during those...

Counselor! Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are

Are we sure Apple is a safe haven and safe hideout for longs in what is obviously a deepening broad market correction? Granted, I am talking my book here, as I am still short part of my AAPL position inside Market Chess Subscription Services. Alas, we must remember that longs can run, but you usually cannot hide for too long in a real, deep...

Operation: Live to Fight Another Day

In markets like these, with daily whipsaws, head-fakes, and now some more deterioration as the selling spreads to even sectors which were exuding relative strength of late (consumer names, energy), we must always return to a basing tenet of speculation, which is: Loss of opportunity is not nearly as damning as loss of capital. Never forget,...

Fresh Ideas for a Levitating Market

Bears seem to have fumbled a few opportunities today to truly bring this market to its knees, as the resilience of the energy sector likely galvanized buyers to try to salvage other parts of the market, like tech.  With energy still strong nearly across the board, we want to put it the work to identify ancillary sectors which often fare well...

A New Market Cycle Officially Hatches

With the Fed now in a tightening cycle, the last few weeks seem to drive home the point that Treasuries and stocks will now likely be moving in unison more than at any other time we have seen in a while. In other words, stocks will likely be trading inversely to rates on some level, as the TLT and SPY correlation seems to be in lockstep.  Just...

So a Farmer Walks Into a Bar...

While it may seem like an afterthought, the price action in many fertilizer and agribusiness plays in general lately has been no joke.  Indeed, the likes of ADM BG CF MOS NTR, among others housed in the MOO ETF for agribusiness (below, on the daily timeframe) has been the epitome of relative strength to the broad market over the last several...

More Options Than You Think

Dip-buyers are making an early attempt to blunt the rare downside momentum bears enjoyed last week in the small caps, and eventually the Nasdaq, too. I suspect that bulls had better hang onto and indeed build on this bounce in order to stave off another afternoon swoon, not unlike what we saw in several instances last week.  Inside Market Chess...

A Narrow Strip to Pass Through Autumn

Equities are largely mixed and still soft in many places after the latest jobs report this morning. On the back of the unemployment percentage headline number ticking lower, despite less-than-expected jobs created, rates are moving higher yet, likely pricing in a more certain imminent future Fed rate hike.  Tech seems to be leading lower, with...

Waterfall Down; Opportunities Ahead

The morning swoon is holding into the afternoon here, as small caps continue to flash a red warning light. I will flesh this out more for Members in my Midday Video, as volatility is finally starting to perk and apparently not fading, just yet.  However, we should not become too morose over this selling, as opportunities for names we have been...
