Saturday Night Chart for Thought

The zoomed-out chart of the U.S. Dollar versus Japanese Yen currency cross, below, may very well have significant implications as far as what Central Banks around the world truly want to happen going forward. As you can see, those times when the cross has weakened, with the Dollar (the numerator) softening against a strengthening Yen...

Various Toppings in Dispute

To be sure, given the lack of immediate downside follow-through by bears for any bout of weakness of late, it remains to be seen if the major averages buckle sufficiently to even tempt a retest of the March lows, be it the Dow, S&P, Nasdaq, or Russell.  However, various individual names continue to operate poorly, some of them rather prominent...

From Down-and-Out to Overhead Concerns

While crude oil was going negative earlier this week we noted the many energy stocks which simply looked tired of going down. Titans like CVX and XOM in the XLE ETF were grinding sideways in lieu of crashing, while the high beta names like exploration XOP ETF were even more surprising, as many of them were actually shooting higher. CHK was...

Let's Get Ready to Reap from Misallocations

A continued, steadfast belief that The Fed will save the day (and week, month, year, century) once again is likely helping to keep equities afloat into another Jobless Claims number tomorrow morning and is sure to be horrifying to those who, you know, actually care about trivial things like having a country and culture, let alone an economy....

Swimming the Channel

A good visual for the choppy market action we have experienced of late, with bulls and bears alternating "ah hah!" moments where they think they have the opposition cornered only to find themselves in a tough spot, is the IWM ETF daily chart, below. Those pesky small caps might be slightly lagging the rallies in the senior indices today, but...

Testing Going Well

While the testing for CoronaVirus across the nation still leaves much to be desired, the gold miners in the GDX ETF continue to respond favorably to each recent test.  On the GDX ETF daily chart, below, after being down 3-4% pre-market and despite silver taking a beating today, the senior gold miners are on track to finish the session...

Essential (Unfinished) Business

Further crude oil weakness into the June contract seems at odds with the likes of XOM flashing green and the XOP ETF (which houses exploration firms) green once again and actually right near multi-week highs. While oil is expectedly garnering plenty of headlines this morning and may be tempting on several levels, be it pressing the short side...

Different Styles But a Common Theme

Tech stocks in the Nasdaq, especially the heavyweights housed in the QQQ ETF, are back at it again this morning staving off any hope for a bloodbath by bears after a soft open.  Beyond the usual suspects like AMZN NFLX SPCE pushing higher yet, we have various biotech names actively leading the party. Some virus-related names like INO OPK are...

Prior Extreme Market Cycles 04/18/20 {Video}

On this Saturday morning, we take a look at prior, relevant (to the current pandemic and crash from all-time highs in March, plus the subsequent squeeze/rally) market cycles which featured historically extreme prices moves and headlines. We then relate those historical markets and the aftermath to the current one. Although history does...

Take the Long View on DraftKings

Earlier this week in Variety a headline read: "DraftKings Cleared to Go Public After Merger With Harry Sloan’s Diamond Eagle." Sports betting giant DraftKings has been cleared to become a public company following approval of a merger with SBTech and Diamond Eagle Acquisition, the public acquisition vehicle headed by industry veterans Harry...

Fade the Infrastructure Mirage

We are in the midst of an economic desert right now, wandering around and seeing various mirages in the form of hope for an immediate recovery. Bulls can point to the large cap tech names as their bread and butter, although as we discussed earlier today there are too many glaringly weak, important sectors which are not nearly as sanguine,...

You Want a Spread? I'll Give You a Spread

Bifurcation / ˌbīfərˈkāSHən /   noun The division of something into two branches or parts.   A clearly bifurcated market is taking hold this morning in far more of a pronounced way than we have seen of late.   The persistent strength in the QQQ, ETF for the top-100 stocks in the Nasdaq Composite, be it AMZN NFLX NVDA TSLA, among others,...

Masks Covering a Fierce Rivalry

You might be wondering just how much longer we can see trading sessions where the premier names in the Nasdaq, notably Amazon, can exude such impressive relative and absolute strength even as small caps, banks, energy, insurers, REITs, among other weak parts of the market, can keep suffering bloody selloffs.  In early 2008, however, many bears...

It'll Do till the Mess Gets Here

Another surge in the major market averages is leaving many market players rather dumbfounded as to how a global economic shutdown for this amount of time can inspire equities to keep rallying in this manner. Naturally, The Fed and the actions of the federal government will be seen as obvious reasons insofar as their supporting of liquidity and...

Amazon Beast Versus the World

To very little surprise, Amazon is in the familiar position, love it or hate it, of trying to keep the rest of the market afloat.  Shares of AMZN are currently a rounding error away from all-time highs which, despite the obvious benefits the empire that Jeff Bezos built has enjoyed during this moment in history, is still something to behold...
