How lululemon Got Her Groove Back

After top and bottoming line earnings beats this morning, shares of  lululemon athletica Inc. are up by more than 10% in a soft tape and hitting new all-time highs.  As you can see on the LULU daily chart, below, the stock has been in a fairly attractive consolidation pattern near those highs for quite some time. And, as usual, it took an event...

Citron and Twitter: A Social Match Made in Heaven

Shares of Twitter, Inc. were off by more than 8% today, as Citron Research came out with a rather bold and visible call for the stock to drop down to $25, after hitting recent highs of $36.80 earlier this month. Citron actually went so far as to say that of all the social plays beyond Facebook, Twitter was actually the most vulnerable to a...

Let's Work on Our TAN for Summer

Housed in the TAN sector ETF, solar stocks have quietly been outperforming most energy and materials names of late.  In particular, Sunrun (RUN) out of  San Francisco and Israel's SolarEdge (SEDG) seem to be the two standouts, with both stock charts on a tear since the second week of February with no signs of slowing down. The fact that RUN and...

It's No Big Deal, We're Just Having a Party Here

Many, many years ago I was playing poker at Foxwoods, in the heart southern New England, and the dealer at my table made several mistakes in the middle of a serious hand with a substantial pot sitting in the middle of the table. I was not in the hand myself but can still vividly remember it.  The young poker dealer was obviously fresh out of...

Shaking off the Facebook Warts

Despite glaring weakness in the likes of FB and TSLA today, bulls are putting up a decent fight this afternoon as the Nasdaq withstood a mid-morning fade and is not too far from retesting session highs as I write this.  While it remains true that the 30-minute timeframe charts of the major index ETFs (DIA IWM QQQ SPY) are far from wildly...

Commence Relief Rally: To Levitate or Not?

The opening gap higher this morning across equities is practically the living, breathing definition of what a "relief rally" is, where market players who had been leaning on the long side can let out a sigh of relief that the heavy selling we saw late-last week did not have a snowball effect over the weekend and spawn an even nastier,...

Free Agency and the Draft: Not Just for the NFL

Stocks are enjoying a bit more of a relief bounce from Monday's selloff after the small caps in the Russell 2000 Index exuded impressive strength this morning. Still, we know the FOMC at the bottom of the hour is a well-defined risk event and should be treated as such, meaning we expect to see violent whipsaws from 2pm EST until the closing...

Beholden to the Weather and The Fed

If we had simply viewed new Federal Reserve chief Jerome Powell with his first policy decision later today after 2pm EST coinciding with another Nor’easter despite spring officially underway, it would probably be a tad too dramatic to play it up as a significant market catalyst.  However, the issue for us as traders is that today's FOMC events...

In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lion

The wintry weather in the northeast on this first day of spring is not the only thing defying the old saying that the month of March "comes in like a lion, but goes out like a lamb." Specifically, equities as a whole have come under a bit more general pressure than bulls would like to see, albeit with quite a few individual stocks laughing off...

Rollin' Snake Eyes

I reduced long exposure further today, as the market selling we are seeing is much more intense and steady beyond the Facebook news and that stock's weakness. Moreover, the VIX back over 20 as I write this and even the most attractive longs like ANF are not convincing enough to compel me to put on new long inventory at the moment.  On the Dow...

The Allure of Playing Hard to Get

With Facebook's stock performing an abrupt about-face from Friday's strength and leading the Nasdaq (and market) lower this morning, it is likely correct to treat lightly on the long side in front of new Fed Chair Powell's first FOMC later this week. Indeed, the major averages are sporting the look and feel of an ongoing consolidation and...

Have Your Guard Up in This Sector

As one of our Members reminded us just now, the large cap biotechnology issues housed in the IBB sector ETF remain at a critical technical juncture.  On the updated IBB monthly chart, this long-term view shows us the initial strength in January to kick off 2018 was insufficient to sustain a fresh breakout for bulls. Going forward, it sure looks...
