Tomato, Tomahto, Record, Rekkid

Headed into the heart of the afternoon portion of today's trading session it appears we have an old-fashioned melt-up making place in the Dow and S&P 500, and the small caps continue to drift up. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq's top 100 market-weighted ETF, QQQ, is just breaking out from a multi-month consolidation as Netflix shines on a price hike for...

Italy Plus Norway Equals Excellence

Crude oil is snapping back hard this morning, seen by strength the USO ETF, as are energy stocks housed in the XLE sector ETF.  With the XLE pushing back over its 200-day moving average for the first time in a while as I write this, it is worth pointing out some names which are perhaps off the radar of most traders in America. Specifically, two...

A Good Market to Stay Present

It strikes me that more and more market players, likely due to the social media effect, enjoy constantly making bold, directional calls about several markets and asset classes. But with the more bold predictions we see, the more anti-climactic the price action can often yield.  Despite the senior averages flashing green, small caps will finally...

Hack on the Bears' Back

The rotation threat continues to act as a thorn in the side of any near-term bear case, flying in the face of the notion that the extended market indices and plethora of individual stocks simply must lead to a sharp dip. Leaders like PCLN and TSLA, for example, seem to have staved off recent attacks by sellers to break them down for deeper...

A God Complex in a Non-Human World

Alec Baldwin's famous "God Complex" speech in Malice (1993), an otherwise forgettable film, has survived the test of time as it is still periodically referenced.  When it comes to leading a surgical team during operations, however, we know the changing medical landscape has rendered that speech partially obsolete. Of course, that is open to...

Small Caps Back to Green Just for Good Measure

One concept we have been rather repetitive about for Members of late has been to resist the urge to short indices, even the extended Russell 2000, small cap-dominated index, with any serious leverage (if at all), given this market's propensity for staging one squeeze after the next. And even when the squeezes do not materialize, we see...

Say Ta-Ta to Tata if it Cannot Rally Now

The recently-galavized stocks of both General Motors and Ford aligns neatly with reports of much stronger auto sales than many had expected. GM and F had both been mired in corrective chart pattens for a long time, frankly. However, both names were essentially wiped out my short radar several months back when buyers began stepping with with...

Tesla Headed Down the Road to Twin Peaks

Despite small caps having the audacity to flip red for the first time in what seems like weeks, the rest of the tape seems to be business-as-usual for bulls. Once again, the mega caps in the Dow are outpacing the other major averages, perhaps masking some mixed action below the surface.  But top-callers continue to grow frustrated by the day,...

From FANG to FANG

Much like in the movie, Wolf (1994), other parts of the market may now start to develop their own FANGs, beyond the FB AMZN NFLX GOOG(L) quarter composing the rather ubiquitous FANG acronym.  Indeed, even with crude oil down 2% today, for example, the energy exploration firms in the XOP ETF, typically a high beta derivative of oil, is...

A New View

The mega caps in the Dow Jones Industrial Average are clearly outpacing the large cap tech stocks in the QQQ (ETF for the Nasdaq's top 100 market-weighted names). Small caps are defiantly ignoring extended conditions, once again, too.  I was a net seller into strength this morning, and am mostly looking to see if bears attempt to make a move on...

In the Wake of the Las Vegas Shooting

Stocks are broadly higher this morning, as the mass shooting in Las Vegas overnight is being seen as an isolated event, despite the jaw-dropping number of those people murdered in cold blood and wounded. As someone who has spent a considerable amount of time in Las Vegas, the part of The Strip (south) where the shooting occurred (on MGM's...

A Surprising Choice

Given some of the recent strength in the ag complex, one would think that the grains (corn, wheat, etc.) would be faring a bit better than they have of late.  Still, on the back of an active and, at times, devastating hurricane season, combined with the increase in demand and widely-accepted health benefits of darker chocolate it is no wonder...

They Don't Need Virtual Reality in Russia

Lost in the shuffle of this bull run in equities is the rather distinguished price action in RSX, the country ETF for Russia. While it is certainly true that emerging markets, in general, have been turning in impressive action virtually all year, the recent pullbacks in India, China, and Brazil (the other three components of the BRIC acronym)...

The Unsinkable Conglomerates

Although it may seem as though the big, bulky media conglomerates (see: CMCSA's $178 billion market cap, for example) are the epitome of safe investments and virtually unsinkable, the same was said about the RMS Titanic before  its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. And, yet, even in this historically resilient bull market, the...

Patience and BlackBerries Are Bitter

After a disappointing summer, it is no wonder that BlackBerry bears reverted to their war chant which has worked marvelously for many years now, decrying that BBRY was bound to go the way of the rotary phone.  However, the company seems to be aware of its image and long-gone leadership status in tech from over ten years ago now. And they are at...
