The Duck, I Says

Even with rates going higher and The Fed on track to raise at least once more before 2018 is over (likely in December), it is fascinating to see those sectors which one would think should suffer from higher rates flourish of late. Specifically, the high-yielding consumer staples, REITs, and utilities have functioned as impressive safety trades...

Forever Elusive

It almost seems poetic that natural gas, after years upon years of endless new lows and failed rallies, would truly improve from a technical perspective and grow stronger by the month as equity markets look as shaky as they have in quite some time. Forever elusive, indeed.  On the UNG daily chart, below, which is the ETF for the commodity, note...

Not Marriage Material

As one of our Members astutely noted earlier, the S&P 500 Index's ETF, SPY, basically tested its 200-day moving average from underneath in the pre-market surge this morning. Whether or not that will suffice to render the current relief rally near its termination date remains to be seen. However, what we do know is that it remains tough to trust...

Get That Swagger Back

The markets, not to mention the general competitive nature of capitalism, have a unique way of humbling the most cocksure players, in due time. Indeed, it was not too long ago that Under Armour stormed onto the retail sportswear scene and took no prisoners, justifiably strutting around the sector as if they were the future. That...

Three Card Monte Market

In front of Apple earnings this evening, equities are doing their best to bide their time in the form of three-card monte type of action. Specifically, the small caps in the IWM noticeably lagged yesterday's rally (and nearly closed red), but are now well out in front of the tape as tech is the laggard du jour.  As long as this type of three...

Limited Visibility

Just because we are not yet sure if the market has truly bottomed does not preclude us from making some near-term assumptions.  Simply put, if the major indices follow the Dow Jones Industrial Average higher to their respective 200-day moving averages (the Dow already tested it today and is showing no initial signs of failure) then it becomes...

Breaking Down Barriers

Working our way through the final hour of trading leading up to Facebook earnings tonight, bulls have performed well today when their backs were against the wall as the SPY probed a $264 breakdown at several junctures.  However, when it come to upside follow-through, we know bulls have fumbled many a time when the $267 upside level has been...

Manipulative Machinations

This market sure is putting on the moves to try and suck in every last speculator, as we all eagerly await more clarity on the issue of whether this tape is bottoming for even a respite from the downtrend, or instead is gearing up for a washout of epic proportions.  What we do know is that the VIX is resisting collapse, staying noticeably firm...

Operation: Live to Fight Another Day

Risk happens fast. Market like these show just how quickly precious, hard-fought gains can evaporate during corrections.  While many insist on being heroes and bottom-fishing what is obviously a deepening correction with a distinct inability to hold bounces, the likely better strategy is to respect the open-strong/close-weak correction...

The Reality of the Situation

As it turns, viewing both leaders like AMZN GOOGL NFLX and exhilarating M&A like the IBM for RHT deal today as potential knights in shining armour to help rescue bulls from a correcting market is a much tougher proposition than many had anticipated. Currently, all major indices are well off their morning highs, with the QQQ now down a stunning...

Outline of a Cold Autumn Market

A $34 billion IBM for RHT deal in software at a hefty premium seems to have helped propel another attempt at a relief rally in the broad market this morning. As I write this, most of the major averages are higher anywhere from 1.3% to 1.66%. Once again, the pertinent issue for us is whether bulls can hang onto these early gains, a fairly...

Selling Spilling Over

One of the more interesting aspects about the current market pullback has been that one can almost feel just how stubbornly bulls have been fighting each and every dip. The valiant attempts to rekindle the glory of buy-the-dip-to-profit-from-V-shaped-rallies-to-fresh-highs of prior pullbacks is now being soundly rebuked by the market, as...

An Interesting Retail Thesis for Halloween

Two of our Members noted separate ideas today which I think can be fused together to create an intriguing pair trade. Both ideas are in the retail sector, but one of them is looking up while the other is on the cusp of a meaningful breakdown.  In a corrective market, the notion of a pair trade tends to take on more significance, as a long/short...

Ho Ho Ho for Arlo?

To be sure, recent IPO Arlo Technologies has had unfortunate timing. The stock has been mercilessly pummeled since late-August as most tech-related names either cooled off or began to correct sharply. And the the last few weeks of broad market deterioration have only sought to pour more salt in ARLO's wounds.  In front of earnings tonight,...
