Hurricane Dorian Plays

Potential natural disasters, such as Hurricane Dorian currently barreling towards Florida, remind us of just how helpless we can be at times when it comes to Mother Nature. As traders, no one is rooting for death and destruction. Instead, we are simply aligning our views with reality--If Dorian strikes Florida hard then we want to be armed with...

Invert, Always Invert

“Invert, always invert: Turn a situation or problem upside down. Look at it backward.”  -Charlie Munger All of this talk regarding the inverted yield curve certainly has me conjuring up the old Charlie Munger quote, above, although I recognize he was not referring to the bond market at all.  Still, "inversion" is the hot topic do jour again...

Safe to Leave the Coast or Not

As tempting as it may be to buy into this morning's rally in equities, the nagging strength in Treasuries is giving us pause. On the TLT daily chart, updated below, note the potential for a fresh breakout here from the highlighted high and tight base consolidation after the prior rally earlier this month which coincided with some violently...

A Teton Market Range

It may seem like the indices are chopping around in ranges as wide as, well, Teton Range out in Wyoming, which is exactly where various Fedheads are gathered right now to enjoy their annual end-of-summer meeting.  As we speak, the jaw-boning is likely causing some early jitters, as tech stocks came out of the gate in a lethargic manner and...

Zig for Apple Card; Zag for PagSeguro

While the Apple Card understandably gets plenty of attention regarding large firms seeking to enter the general payments arena to establish their own ecosystem, if you will, we ought not overlook plays like PagSeguro out of Brazil.  PAGS spiked up after earnings late-last week and has been flagging nicely ever since, as seen on its updated...

This Old House, No More

Between TREX (outdoor decking) and now Restoration Hardware, below on its updated daily chart, it sure seems like the market is signaling that it is infatuated with the idea of housing undergoing a revamping phase this cycle.  On the RH chart, now how well the stock has acted since Memorial Day, with a smooth uptrend remaining unperturbed even...

Avoid Self-Inflicted Traps

The market is challenging enough, as is, without us being our own worst enemies and leading ourselves into traps like the brutal one shown above.  Thus, we want to avoid overthinking and extrapolating too much when it comes to growth stocks which have held up very well this summer.  Case in point: COUP GH TTD, a software, healthcare, and...

Sweet Tastes in a Bitter August

Despite the rally today, August has thus far been not been very kind to bulls, especially looking at a daily chart of, say, the IWM (small caps). However, the sweet taste of relative strength in the likes of biotech INCY and fast/casual chicken wing joint WING, respectively below, still ought to count for something serious. Indeed, disregarding...

Overnight Traps

As promising as yesterday's bounce looked and felt for bulls, one of our chief concerns insofar as electing not to add new long exposure was that we first wanted to see bulls survive the overnight futures session. Specifically, we have seen some rather tumultuous overnight sessions in August, and last night was no different--In fact, it was all...

Don't Get Too Comfortable in That Bear Sleeping Bag

Bears who were looking for an abrupt drop back down to last week's lows on the S&P and Nasdaq (if not much lower) are in a rather tough spot this morning, as some positive AAPL/China trade war news is the excuse du jour to send the Dow up nearly 500 points as I write this.  The two main issues undermining the imminent bear case this week,...

A Relative Lull Until Jackson Hole

Sure, we have headlines out of Hong Kong and plenty of the usual trade war buzz in the air, not to mention an apparent full slate of earnings again this week. However, as to the latter point, we have already gotten through the overwhelming majority of marquee firms reporting earnings. And as to the former points, the macro news flow is likely...

Averting Danger

As much as we could talk all morning about specific price levels on the indices for bulls to hold into this giveback we are seeing from yesterday's rally, such as 2,900 on the S&P 500, the reality is that we likely do not see stocks bounce again until and unless bond bulls ease up.  Specifically, TLT is back at it again, with nary a red daily...

I've Got My Toes in the Water...

Bulls are holding the line today, which folds neatly into the baby step they took yesterday. As I write this, the small caps in IWM are maintaining their move back over their 200-day moving average while tech stocks in QQQ are doing the same for their 50-day moving average. As long as there is no complete rollover into the bell, it appears as...

The Scene of the Crime

One of the long-standing issues for swing traders (meaning those market players who seek to hold trades anywhere from a few days to a few weeks) immediately buying back into corrective markets with any sort of size is that the major averages, and indeed many individual stocks, invariably run directly into potential resistance rather quickly...

Quick Strike Market

The theme of last evening's full-length video recap for Members centered around the notion that bulls could likely not afford to suffer a gap down in the face of yesterday's bounce combined with some impressive individual earnings rallies in the after hours session, namely GH GWPH MTCH SEDG WW. Our reasoning behind that thesis was that the many...
