Extending the Ride

The slightest hint at a Fed rate cut later this year by Chair Powell this morning apparently served to pop futures higher into the open. As a result, the S&P 500 Index surpassed 3,000 for the first time ever, though that factoid may amount to more ballyhoo than actual substance, since that price level has no technical significance and, at best,...

Appreciate the Symmetry

Alongside small caps in the IWM, the semiconductors were an integral part of both the May selloff and June snapback rally.  Currently, the semis are trying to reemerge from a controlled, multi-day bull flag on the SMH, sector ETF pictured on the daily chart, below. Note the last several sessions featuring low sell volume as price drifted lower...

Let's Crack Open the Other PBR This Summer

PBR is shorthand for Pabst Blue Ribbon, a classic American pilsner. It is also the ticker symbol for Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) a semi-public Brazilian oil giant headquartered in Rio.  As Members know, Brazilian stocks have quietly been on a tear in recent weeks, with the EWZ country ETF outperforming China and printing multi-month...

Low and Slow

With negative headlines and weakness in shares of both AAPL and DB this morning, we have some broad market softness starting the post-holiday week off on a dour note. The pace of the selling in the first hour or so smacks more of a "low and slow" market being grilled rather than a fast burn for bears, which is fairly typical of summer action...

Find Your Inner Trading Peace This Summer

Naturally, it is a bit rich to assign too much significance to any one trading session, let alone the Friday after the Fourth of July. Nonetheless, bulls have done an admirable job of stabilizing an initial thrust lower after a strong jobs report caused some stir that the Fed will not cut rates later this year.  As I write this, I see plenty of...

Cheap Shots During Independence Day Week

My BlackLine long is taking it on the chin this morning after a rare "double downgrade" by an analyst at Goldman Sachs from a Buy rating all the down to a Sell rating. For this to happen during a holiday week, low volume and all, seems a bit dodgy if not a cheap shot, and, naturally, my bullish bias towards BL has me even more skeptical of...

An Interesting Exhibit

Zillow Group Inc. is a name I turned wildly bullish on a few months back, especially from a long-term perspective in the VIP arm of Market Chess Subscription Services.  My reasoning centered around the potential for the numerous shorts in this name to miscalculate just how much value management intends to extract and unlock from the firm's...

Feels Like July

If you glance at seasonal statistics, July typically serves as something of a reprieve for bulls in the midst of the summer doldrums and periods of volatility if not outright correction. As we know, however, each year in the market has its own quirks. And we just completed a June for the books, especially with respect to the Dow.  Thus, even...

Back Up to the Surface

Despite weakness in shares of Boeing (BA) weighing on the Dow Jones Industrial Average this morning, small caps in the IWM and tech as a group are soundly outperforming. Indeed if most bulls had their druthers I presume they would assuredly choose IWM QQQ strength virtually any day of the week in lieu of the Dow, on account of the higher beta...

Roll with It or Get Rolled

Beyond headlines regarding positive developments in the U.S./China trade war talks, shares of large cap semiconductor Micron (MU) are jumping more than 12% as I write this to give bulls a breather after yesterday afternoon's slide.  To be sure, bulls must build on the early strength especially with respect to the small caps in the IWM...

Ags: The Other Commodity Meat

Much like those commercials from the 1990s centered around the theme of pork being the "other white meat," ags and ag-related stocks somehow seem to be overlooked when parts of the commodity complex rally.  Case in point: The rally in precious metals and miners, not to mention a modest bounce in crude, seem to have more than overshadowed a...

Iamgold Says "I am Your Tell"

Further softness in the broad market, especially with QQQ down more than 0.75% as I write this, on top of the small caps in IWM operating back under their 200-day moving average, is keeping bulls at bay early on this morning. It may only take a large buy program of two in order to reignite the buying pressure we saw earlier this month. However,...

The Good News...

The last few sessions, especially after Thursday morning's initial pop, have pretty much gone as we had expected them to inside Market Chess Subscription Services. Our game plan was to take profits into Thursday morning's strength and then to exercise patience until new setups emerged and, perhaps, any very near-term froth and/or end of quarter...

Emerging in the Darkness

It has been a while since we have heard much of anything from shares of Goldman Sachs. Clearly, the spike lower in rates in recent months has served to undermine any excitement bulls may have had for most holdings in the KRE (regional banking) and XLF (larger cap financials) sector ETFs.  But if Treasuries take a seasonal pause here allowing...
