This is Really Gonna Hurt

Simply put, this market still smacks of complacency much more than a buy-the-blood scenario, as the VIX has barely shot up today (by its own standards, not a percentage move), and remains in the low/mid-20s even though equities thoroughly got stuffed in any and all bounce attempts.  With the belly of the earnings beast approaching, I suspect...

The Naz and All That Jazz

One of the first observations we made with Members out of the gate this morning was that the Nasdaq was notably lagging the other major averages. If bulls did not fix that situation sooner than later, we were looking to see if the rest of the market would give up any semblance of an early bounce and head on lower, especially given that the...

Appreciate the Full View

The Wilshire 5000 Total Market Index, below on the weekly timeframe, measures performance of all U.S. equity securities with readily available price data. In other words, the Wilshire arguably gives the ultimate birds-eye view of the market at any given time. Despite the bounce off session lows today, which is holding so far, it is worth noting...

Sink or Swim Mentality for a Sink or Swim Market

"sink or swim" - to fail or succeed entirely by one's own efforts Speaking from experience, corrective markets often magnify the flaws in many traders' strategies and discipline (or lack thereof). Indeed, downtrending markets are unforgiving and, at times, ruthless in their aggressive price discovery mechanisms in terms of running traders out...

Can You Lay Off the Action?

No one travels to the casino with the intention of folding hand after hand in poker, nor to walk away from a cold blackjack table. But such is life as a speculator, where the action is soggy and most trades seem like a reach. At times, the best trade is no trade, and laying off the action can seem like one of the best trades to make in lieu of...

Getting Way Down There

As per our morning discussion, the weakness in financials may be getting plenty of attention but we ought not overlooked the glaring, continued selling in the homebuilders.  With this in mind, let us examine the XHB ETF for another perspective to see that the XHB's monthly RSI is now at its lowest point since 2009.  On the monthly...

Lonely Homes; But Misery Loves Company

Housing bulls must be feeling awfully lonely these days, as the XHB and ITB sector ETFs have performed remarkably poorly over the last month.  In fact, you might argue that the housing sector's abrupt (back in September) but now-persistent weakness is causing a good deal of consternation among the broad market, too. Either way, it behooves us...

Storm Clouds Not Going Away Yet

After a promising relief rally yesterday we are being reminded this morning that this market is likely still working through a corrective period. As I write this, the Dow is off by 300 points, compelling me to take gains in longs and take off a NTNX position basically flat from where I bought it.  At issue now is whether the market completely...

A Fine Backdrop

It is always intriguing to see commodity-related stocks outperform a the underlying commodity, such as we are seeing with some of the exploration firms today like CHK RRC SWN. Typically, when the stocks in question outperform the underlying commodity it is a bullish sign of risk-on in the complex. A classic example would be seeing the gold...

I'm Seeing Funny Things with Pot Stocks, Man

One would objectively think that the hot money sectors in recent months would suffer violent, unforgiving drawdowns in times of market pullbacks/corrections where the major averages sharply come in to test their respective 200-day simple moving averages. The thinking goes that highest beta, riskiest sectors which appeared to be generous, cute...

There is Such a Thing as Trying Too Hard

The great irony of speculation and indeed virtually all forms of gambling is that a speculator's intense competitive spirit can often be the downfall. In other words, if a speculator has a background as an athlete in competitive sports, the very notion of losing or not winning is seen as somber, dark event.  But to think of trading as akin to,...

Market Corrections Test Your Mental Toughness More Than Anything Else

Unlike smooth market uptrends, when large market players (institutions) of size are typically cool, calm, collected, and often buy stocks in the face of even the most bearish of news, market corrections often feature a certain degree of wild indecision as those big players unload stocks or at least refrain from buying them. It is during those...

Counselor! Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are

Are we sure Apple is a safe haven and safe hideout for longs in what is obviously a deepening broad market correction? Granted, I am talking my book here, as I am still short part of my AAPL position inside Market Chess Subscription Services. Alas, we must remember that longs can run, but you usually cannot hide for too long in a real, deep...
