There's Nothing Natural About It

We have been operating in a market where many leading stocks and various other issues have been acting increasingly "tired" of late. However, as bears can attest, the elusive giveback for anything more than a momentary blip to red, perhaps, on the Nasdaq has been met with instantaneous dip-buying as it seems like a one-way rally is destined to...

Ducking Out Early Today

I turn 40 years old today, so I am going to duck out of here early. 40 years of age is a life milestone which I do not take for granted, as I have known more than a few people over the years who will never get to enjoy this privilege.  As for markets, the seemingly endless QQQ drift higher this summer remains intact. And that will likely...

Epic Summer Drift Upstream

Large cap tech continue to dominate again this morning, as the seemingly endless drift upstream in the QQQ ETF galvanizes bulls in names like AAPL AMZN FB TSLA, even SPCE after its recent pullback. While the move higher in rates (read: lower TLT) this week is likely to have ramifications going forward if it persists, the U.S. Dollar dipping red...

Extensive Testing

Various virus-related plays are getting crushed this morning, namely CODX INO NVAX, even the online schooling and curricula play, LRN.  Thus, with the major indices snapping back higher off yesterday's weakness, the issue is whether we should be onboard with the market's implication today that the economy is, in fact, on the cusp of a...

U-V-X-Y: You Ain't Got No Alibi!

With political gamesmanship and posturing taking hold in D.C. surrounding the latest round of Stimulus measures for Americans, markets are limping towards the closing bell today as this morning's Russia vaccine play fades under the scrutiny of its veracity.  One gets the sense that a sleepy summer VIX is ripe to wake up from what has been...

Vaccines of the World Unite! All You Have to Lose is Your Efficacy

Despite a fair amount of understandable skepticism greeting news this morning of Russian approval for a Coronavirus vaccine, futures reacted sharply especially in the Dow and small cap-led Russell.  As it stands now, coming up on ninety minutes into the cash session, the same dynamic of the mega cap value names in the Dow (BA CAT JPM, to name...

The New Reality of Big City Life

Since the surge in big city crime, protests, even riots, since just about Memorial Day, we have been looking for shares of ShotSpotter (SSTI) inside Market Chess Subscription Services to eventually get going. As often happens on Wall Street, though, it took the latest earnings report to wake the name up. Now that SSTI is clearly in play as an...

The "Dollar is Trash" is the New, "Men Are Trash"

With the UUP ETF (for the U.S. Dollar currency versus a basket of developed economies' currencies) bouncing off the long-term $25 level we examined yesterday in this piece , the precious metals and miners are finally cooling off after an exhilarating run. Be that as it may, I see UUP is well off session highs as I write this, placing the...

Tie Goes to the Money Runner

A virtual tie amongst those firms reporting earnings last evening and this morning, namely BYND DIS LVGO SQ TDOC TWLO, is a glaring theme so far today, with DIS SQ boosting the bull case while BYND LVGO TDOC TWLO are selling off a good deal. The caveat, of course, is that the likes of LVGO TDOC TWLO all screamed into earnings and, thus, are...

A Slow But Not Deserted Station

Crude oil, understandably, gets virtually all of the attention in the energy sector most of the time. Since cascading and catching tons of hoopla back in April, the "black gold" has since staged a spirited relief rally only to subsequently flatline, essentially, since early-June.  Two months later, we have crude showing some life today after...

Summer Complacency Not in Its Nascency

Both a green VIX and U.S. Dollar this morning seem to be lurking behind the curtain as we kick off what is traditionally a rough stretch of the trading year, from now until around late-October. Some heavyweight tech leaders like AAPL MSFT TSLA ZM, however, are back at it again and masking the more pedestrian action in the small caps and other...

Lonely at the Top

We have a bit of a tug-of-war in the market today, as dominant earnings winners like AAPL AMZN FB (though GOOG is soft) seek to offset small cap weakness (IWM is down 2% as I write this even with the indices off their morning lows), as well as assorted other fades.  Headed into what is often a choppy, if not outright volatile and bearish, time...

You'll Like This Throwback

Although it seems like markets are changing in ways which render traditional analytical and observational methods obsolete, in reality we are seeing variations of, for example, post-1929 crash Wall Street and even monetary and fiscal responses. Back then, we saw an explosive rally for several quarters after the Crash of '29 to dovetail with...
