Adding Flavor to a Salty Market

Despite glaring underperformance by the small caps in the IWM ETF early on, quite a few tech stocks are bouncing back nicely from some really drubbings yesterday. PLAN, for example, a late-2018 IPO in the hot software space, sold off harshly into the bell on Monday but is managing a more-than-respectable 6% bounce-back as I write this.  Still,...

It'll Do Until the Mess Gets Here

Opening weakness in equities is being chalked up to a variety of causes, be it the government shutdown dragging on, poor overnight China data, or underwhelming earnings thus far into a brand new reporting season.  Regardless of the actual proximate cause, though, the nature of the selling this morning is not yet violent enough to anticipate a...

Welcome Back, Welcome Back, Welcome Back

Here comes natty, back over its 200-day moving average on its ETF daily chart below. Buying natural gas off support has worked well compared to buying breakouts since last Labor Day. Still it is worth looking at natty for a 200-day buy spot next week if the strength persists, especially now that many people forgot about it despite us being the...

Out with the Old

Despite an omnipresent group of stubborn shorts, or perhaps because of them in part, Tesla continues to notably outperform the "FANG" plus Apple (not to mention NVDA SQ) prior leadership names to little fanfare. Recently, TSLA bears had every chance to break the name back under its 200-day moving average and get the ball rolling downhill are...

A Pedestrian Roll Down the Valley

Bears were almost assuredly looking for a more violent pullback this morning, as the price action thus far smacks more of digestion after an epic feast in the form of a sharp relief rally since Christmas.  At the moment, the major averages are still comfortably holding above their respective 20-day simple moving averages with little in the way...

A Bit Too Much Tap-Dancing for My Taste

(Gregory Hines in Tap [1989]) The market may very well continue to chug on higher, but the risk/reward proposition for longs is seemingly growing more unfavorable by the hour. Case in point: The rising channel on the SPY, ETF for the S&P 500 Index, which we observed earlier this week is growing more concerning today.  Specifically, on the...

FOMO Fatigue for a Drowsy Market

Another early pop off the opening bell looks to be fading as I write this. And this time around I am less emboldened by the prospect of buyers immediately swooping back in. As a result, I lightened up on a few of my quick-hitting swings longs inside Market Chess Subscription Services, and am inclined to let any pauses or pullbacks play out a...

Retail Footwear: Three's Company?

Lost in the shuffle of the rally in software stocks seems to be the extreme strength in select retail plays, especially relating to footwear, like CROX and FL. We have been tracking both with Members and now are looking for more to join the party as there are quite a few names in the space which could play catch-up, but one in particular with a...

It's Not All About China

Perceived progress on the U.S./China Trade War talks is being attributed as a colorable reason for this morning's opening gap higher. As I write this, though, we are well off session highs and putting dip-buyers to the test in terms of whether they remain willing and able to step back in to keep supporting this relief rally. Inside Market Chess...

A Beacon of Light in a Dark Tape

Two hefty buyout premiums this morning for biotech LOXO and software play LXFT are helping the bull case for a relief rally after last Friday's impressive rally. And when you consider that bears have another golden opportunity after Thursday's selloff to press us lower, the specter of an abrupt rally trapping a majority of traders either short...

A New Type of Logic

It is a bit odd to see Fed Chair Powell pick a day with a very strong jobs report to soften his previously-rigid (compared to, say, Bernanke) tone regarding his hawkish monetary bias. But that is exactly what he has done this morning, as Powell blatantly acquiesced to President Trump's line about "hearing the stock market." Incidentally, the...

Something Magical is Happening with the Miners

Beyond a spirited rally in gold and now silver, something we have seen intermittently for a few years which usually ended in abrupt rollovers, one of the more interesting aspects of the current move is that those miners which are essentially pausing or taking days off do not suffer much in the way of givebacks.  Previously, the glaring omission...

An Armed and Dangerous Market

The sharp selloff in shares of Apple this morning looks to more than offset any bullish hope for the BMY for CELG buyout to take the market higher. Similar comments apply to an initial bounce in crude oil, as well as weak ISM manufacturing data perhaps slowing down the hawkish Fed.  In fact, the Dow, S&P, and Nasdaq have all taken out...
