Canada Goose was Loose

But now it is tightening up. Canada Goose, a retail standout winner in an improving sector in recent months, sold off aggressively last week. A knee-jerk reaction may very well to caste the name aside indefinitely, favoring earnings winners instead.  However, this may very well prove to be a buyable dip for GOOS, which had valiantly held onto...

The Fox Guarding the Yenhouse

It is often said that during market corrections and times of uncertainty, correlations run more closely together and thus carry more weight. To invert that idea, consider how easy it is to try to call a top during a benign bull run higher based on some negatively diverging correlation or indicator, often to little or no avail.  But when the...

The Dow is 420 Friendly Nowadays

The early weakness in the small caps is now looking like a trap to lure in overzealous shorts with an itchy trigger finger, the indices quickly regrouped and are now surging into the heart of the afternoon session. While I did not rush in and short this morning, I have been extra selective in terms of adding back long exposure. My reasoning...

A Different View of a Popular Destination

More than anything else, the supposed new era of markets where computers front-run the "old ways" of traders doing things has ingrained a certain behavior into market players which sees them assuming that any slight undercut of a well-defined, prior support area must be a great buying opportunity. This idea fits neatly alongside the notion of...

Cold, Hard, American 100% C(r)ash

During the late-morning swoon spilling over into the early-afternon portion of the session, I decided to close out my swing shorts and move to 100% cash in my trading account inside Market Chess Subscription Services.  To be sure, a loose and sloppy close today would draw analogies to the crash of 1987, in terms of the weakness leading up to...

A Shady Throwback

Although FEYE and NVDA are two bright spots for bulls on the earnings front today, with both names gapping higher this morning, the broad market bounce attempt has yet to make much of a dent vis-à-vis yesterday's 1,000-point plunge on the Dow.  To be sure, an afternoon squeeze may gather steam if bears are unable to overturn the rally and...

Welcome to the Big Leagues, Jerome Powell

With the next Federal Open Market Committee meeting not scheduled until late-March, new Fed Chair Jerome Powell is already facing markets doing what they have done for decades: Put new Fed Chairs to the test right off the bat. And the fact that we still have just under two months before that meeting means the recent volatility may not...

And Then There was the Yen...

With the various headlines in recent days, weeks, months, even years, I am sure we all forgot about the Japanese Yen currency as issues in Japan seems to fall into the background.  Nonetheless, when the Yen rallies strongly it tends to bode poorly for global risk appetite, especially equities, as it signifies "risk off" for a variety of...

A Dim Sum Morning

Much like dum sum in Chinatown on a weekend morning, the market this morning has something for everyone on which to nibble. On the one hand, we have a name like TWTR (following-up on SNAP yesterday) smashing earnings and continuing its long-term turnaround for the better. GRUB is equally as impressive, acting more and more like an emerging...

Facebook and Snapchat: Watching the Same Movie Again?

The first chart pictured below is a blast from the past--Facebook's weekly timeframe dating back to 2012/2013, after its post-IPO slump. FB actually dipped into the teens, amid a plethora of negative media coverage and frustrated shareholders.  Eventually, though, just when all hope seemed to be lost, the company steamrolled a summer earnings...

Be Careful Who You Trust

The many, powerful "V-shaped" rallies bulls have enjoyed over the years likely convinced traders who never traded prior market cycles that the V-rallies were entirely normal. On same level, that is true. But there are many other instances even in bull runs where corrections take a bit more time and pain to play out before the bull market is...

Ironically, Wynn's Stock Did Nothing Wrong

Although it is almost a forgone conclusion at this point that Steve Wynn's behavior and conduct to women throughout his esteemed gaming career crossed the line many times over, we must resist the urge to extrapolate the bad actions of a megalomaniac to the rest of the company and its many employees.  As Wynn himself officially resigned last...

Kill the XIV and All Debts Are Paid

Can it really be that simple for the market to now shake off the events of this week and resume the melt-up to new highs?  We have some big earnings tonight, like Disney, would should offer a respite from the XIV SVXY tom-foolery.  But liquidation events are typically serious business for longer than just a day or two, especially when big banks...

Sneaky Retail Smarts on The Street

With the recent mechanical and liquidity issues the market has experienced during this correction, an initial thought would be that the retail stocks would quickly relinquish a chunk or all of the relief rally the sector has enjoyed of late, rallying after quarters of end of largely getting pummeled. After all, plenty of retail firms still have...
