The Law of Interia

With the broad market indices insisting on not moving much, just yet, it remains tough to force the issue in terms of attacking even the most attractive individual chart.  Two possible exceptions, however, reside in the biotechnology, names we have highlighted but here and with Members.  FATE is having a very strong session on a huge uptick of...

Mount Everest is the New Hotel California

The recent slew of tragic deaths on the way up Mount Everest seems like a good lesson in taking unnecessary risks. On the one hand, we must acknowledge that plenty of choices in life come down to being comfortable with the idea of taking risk and dealing with uncertain outcomes. On the other hand, brazenly taking overly-aggressive risks...

All Eyes from All Angles

At the risk of being overly-dramatic headed into a holiday weekend, the S&P 500 Index is at the most critical of junctures.  Thus, in lieu of discussing individual stocks on dips, the more relative issue will be whether buyers can, in fact, place a floor underneath this wobbly, headline-sensitive market. If so, then individual names, especially...

Swimming in Circles

Fish are typically seen swimming in circles when the school wants to stay put--A common response of schools attacked by predators is the formation of a circle. With respect to the current market, you might argue that the persistent trade war headlines combined with various glaring weak spots, namely the semis (with QCOM the concern du jour),...

Ready to Attack

With bulls making another stand this morning and threatening to see this small cap-led rally sustain higher into Memorial Day, I went long Pareteum Corporation for a swing trade inside Market Chess Subscription Services. TEUM is a name we traded a while back. And I continue to view this one as a "sleeper" small cap winner with less than a $1...

You Might Want to Start Believing in Fate

Fate Therapeutics Inc., a La Jolla-based cancer and immunotherapy small cap biotechnology stock, is a pretty textbook example of a "good house in a bad neighborhood" setup in the market. Specifically, biotechs as a group have been floundering, with the XBI (ETF for small cap bios) weakening further this morning below its 200-day moving...

Plenty of Flavors Besides Salty

It is easy to become salty about this market. After all, bears had a good setup to bring us down hard in recent weeks--A steep rally since Christmas which was met with swirling trade war headlines and lingering Fed uncertainty, not to mention mixed economic data.  However, those pesky software stocks have refused to let bulls lose their grip on...

Bring Me Everyone

Growth stocks are partying hard this morning, as some broad market pressures seem to be slightly alleviated and the relative strength issues mostly in software are celebrating jubilantly, including the likes of COUP MDB TWLO, just to name a few.  Biotechs are also perky on the back of some strong IOVA data and that stock jumping 34% as I write...

Who's Guarding the Market's Henhouse?

Despite pre-market weakness from equities on the back of soft retail sales, further advancing the notion that we remains in a headline-sensitive market (virtually all headline, beyond just the trade war with China), bears must come to terms with the persistent relative strength in technology stocks, namely the software issues.  As a result, the...

Solar Living on the Edge

Given the downright atrocious price action in the likes of the OIH, ETF for energy's oil services stocks, we can infer that the solar space continues to shine not as a bonafide alternative energy fuel source but on its own merits. Indeed, as OIH has been slipping for weeks in end with an already-putrid chart on virtually all timeframes, the...

Get Those Flags Right

Roku, below on its updated daily chart, has been one of the more notable outperforming charts during this market mess of late. As you can plainly see, ROKU knocked the cover off the ball with its recent earnings report and has subsequently barely flinched.  ROKU is currently sporting a variation of a high, tight bull flag look, which simply...

I'll Have My China Trade War Selloff with No MSG, Please

Shares of The Madison Square Garden Company (MSG) are notably green today. MSG, led by CEO James Dolan, is the owner of many entertainment assets including the NBA's New York Knicks.  With the NBA Draft Lottery scheduled for tomorrow evening, the lowly Knicks have a 14% chance of winning the first overall pick to draft prospective superstar...

War is War

As the U.S./China trade war intensifies, markets continue to wobble with the uncertainty of the entire situation. A major Dow component like Boeing, for example, seems to be especially sensitive to the China tensions and may very well become caught up in the economic bloodbath. Simply put, a war is a war, and the uncertainty of the situation...

The Zen Theory of the Stock Market

I once had a law school professor quickly regain control of a class which had gone off the rails. Too many students were questioning the vast inconsistencies in the case law we were studying, and the class had broken down into students basically bloviating for much of the class time about what they thought the proper law should be.  "You must...

A Market Challenging Your Toughness

I reluctantly moved to full cash in my trading account on Tuesday not because I expected this type of imminent downside, but rather out of respect for the lack of upside momentum seen in even the most of attractive of long setups in growth stocks.  While it is certainly true that imminent further downside was a distinct risk, as I noted for...

There's No Such Thing as a Perfect Game in Trading

The various head-fakes we have seen in this headline-driven market of late have slowed down even the most enticing of growth long setups out there, mostly clustered in the software-related complex.  Markets like these often reinforce the concept that as speculators we must understand that chasing a perfect record is often akin to chasing a...
