Open for Business but Not Business As Usual

In the early going of today's session we have a mixed bag with respect to the major indices, with the Nasdaq and semiconductors doing some heavy lifting to the upside while banks, energy, and biotech lag. In addition, it is somewhat opposite of yesterday's session, with the extended lockdown winners bouncing back after they glaringly lagged...

Joined At the Hip

What do BYND CHWY DOCU NFLX RNG TDOC WORK ZM all have in common? Well, they have been nicely winners stemming from the events of the last few weeks and/or months, namely the pandemic and lockdown and subsequent consequences, intended or not.  Today, however, they are all in the red, some deeply so and some mildly. Either way, we can see the...

Gap Up and Trap

A sizable opening gap higher to kick off this week leading up to Memorial Day Weekend makes new entries tougher to nail down. By now, we are used to the overnight futures market taking on a prominent role for the cash session, with these opening gaps becoming even more of the norm since late-February. As a result, more traps than usual have...

Hardcore Setup for a Hardcore Vision

At the risk of being overly-dramatic, it is what is--We may be headed towards a perfect, albeit horrifying, storm of historical unemployment coupled with rising prices all around thanks to endless Fed and government attempts to simulate the economy and consumer. This could easily play out over the next six-to-eighteen months, or possibly...

The Scene of Many a Controversy

If you know your Wall Street history then you know that there have been many controversies over time with respect to various speculators attempting to "corner the market" in the precious metal with industrial utility, otherwise known as silver. But we can go through history lessons such as "Silver Thursday," another time. Ironically, though, on...

Gold Distinctions 05/13/20 {Video}

In the following video, we analyze some distinctions in gold between the selloff in equities now versus early-March. Is the market looking ahead to more Fed/government ignited inflation? I hope you find the video instructive.

Jerome, How Could You?

Fed Chair Jerome "Jay" Powell warned of a sustained, deep recession this morning, and explicitly said,  "Almost 40% of those in households making less than $40,000 a year lost a job in March." This sort of dour outlook from the Fed Chair seems at odds with the manner in which The Fed has tried to whisper sweet nothings and offer romantic...

Bread and Circuses...and Biotech

“Give them bread and circuses and they will never revolt.” — Ancient Roman poet, Juvenal The various entertainment in, say, the Roman Colosseum, was seen as the "bread and circuses" to keep the population of Rome rather happy and docile, staving off revolt during tough times.  In the current market and economic landscape, perhaps The Fed is...

Pricing in the Unpriceable

If we had had social media back in 1929-1932, it would have been fascinating to see how the post-October 1929 crash price action and policy decisions would have been met. Not long after the crash, history seems to overlook that both The Fed and President Herbert Hoover took considerable action to try to stem the tide of unemployment as well as...

The New Era of Retail

By now, we are well aware that Amazon is, in many respects, king of the castle in terms of new-world retail purchases and their entire ecosystem. But there is always COST and WMT, with names like BJ not far behind. Grocers like IMKTA KR SFM WMK are coming into their own, too.  And there a notch down are the dollar stores like DG and DLTR, with...

Slow & Steady Keeps You in the Race

Even if the current market does prove to be merely the early-innings of a new bear market, luring in new longs as we speak, it is not much consolation for over-eager bears who pressed the likes of BYND PTON PYPL SPCE SQ TWLO this week and are now suffering dearly in the way of violent short squeezes higher. The sizable moves today, for example,...

Someone is Lying

While there is always the possibility that equities could flatten out into summer, essentially "going dead" on the major indices I suspect that the glaring divergences we are witnessing will come to a head sooner or later. On the one hand we have tech flying again in many cases, be it NFLX SPCE and various biotechs and software names thriving...

Sharks Above, Sharks Below

If it seems like the market is trying to trigger stop-losses in both directions today, it is probably because that is, indeed, the case. Typically, the way to avoid getting chopped up constantly is to try to thread the needle of not over-trading your positions but also having some max pain levels where you simply must cut if need be.  With the...

Aim for Crude, Hit with Natty

While crude oil garners the headlines and receives just about all of the attention relative to natural gas and may or may not be actually bottoming, it is natty which is sporting the more well-defined intermediate-term chart bottom.  As we have been profiling both here and with Members, the natural gas breakout could be for a variety of...
