Still on the Prowl

Despite the sleepy market action today, or perhaps because of it, bulls are still far from feeling threatened in terms of bears succeeding in rolling this tape back over. Simply put, the old axion about not shorting dull markets has generally survived the test of time on Wall Street for good reasons.  Furthermore, the small cap outperformance...

Don't Play Taps for Retail, Just Yet

During the swoon we saw to close out 2018, not to mention parts of January when department store titans like Macy's and Nordstrom gapped down violently, retail stocks suffered a fair amount of damage even compared to other sectors during the correction.  However, some intriguing names have been popping up of late, including the likes of Lovesac...

Improper Nostalgia

While bears have drawn plenty of historical analogies between the current broad market landscape versus, say, the spring of 2008, when a seemingly convincing rally fell apart at the seams and led to one of the most violent crashes in the last fifty years, we also must acknowledge that a plethora of tech plays (mostly in software, cybersecurity,...

Playing Hard to Get

The seemingly inevitable market pause at a confluence of obvious resistance on most of the major index charts continues to play out, though bears are making their case more forcefully today than yesterday.  Still, if we wind up merely backing and filling sideways for a few more days before bulls reassert themselves it is most definitely worth...

We Can Draw Lines Any Way We Want

One of the more challenging aspects of real-time, hands on charting software in the social media age is maintaining a certain degree of objectivity and consistency in our analysis. After all, we are the masters of our charts, at least superficially, and are therefore capable of drawing lines any way we wish.  But if we are going to be on the...

I Wonder if You Wonder

Lest we become too immersed in the innuendo scene from my favorite film noir ever made, Double Indemnity (1944), I will simply state that I wonder if you truly wonder about whether a chart like Fitbit has turned the corner.  We know FIT remains heavily-shorted, and seeing the squeezes today in the likes of OSTK and SNAP should keep our ears...

It's Not Just a Game

Names like ATVI GLUU (which had been acting brilliantly for months on end) EA GME TTWO are all either getting pummeled this morning or, ion the case of GME, have been in a bad technical spot for a while now. Needless to say, the "gamers" space is clearly not on the level of enterprise software in terms of technical health and prospects for...

Smelling Blood in the Water

Equities are extending higher this morning as we head into a delayed State of the Union speech tonight at 9pm EST. I expect President Trump to dedicate a portion of his speech to renewed emphases on strong national defense measures, or "peace through strength," as he often calls it. As a result, the ITA ETF (for the aerospace and defense...

Like a Natural Canopy

Pot stocks and software have been two of the main parts of the market attracting plenty of hot money in 2019, and this morning is no exception. In fact, with Ultimate Software (ULTI) spiking on news that the announced an agreement to be acquired by a private investor group, one can envision a scenario where M&A picks up this winter and spawns a...

Looking for Yext in Line

In terms of shaking off the post-Amazon earnings selloff, equities are doing an admirable job thus far this morning. Back in December, if we had AMZN down 4.5% or so one would think the QQQ would be off by around 2% or more. Instead, as I write this the QQQ is only down by about 0.2%. That can change quickly for better or worse, of course. ...

Tonight We Head to the Rainforest

Amazon earnings tonight after the bell represents another tech titan reporting in light of Apple, Facebook, and quite a few others this week.  On the AMZN monthly chart, below, the long-term bull case would be that the stock has simply pulled back to its rising 20-period monthly moving average (orange line), a reference point the stock had...

Hold Up Your Badge, So They'll Know You're a Software Play

While the reaction to Facebook earnings, with the stock presently up by more than 13%, is understandably garnering plenty of headlines in the financial news media and capturing the attention of many traders, I view the reaction by ServiceNow to earnings, with NOW up 17.5% as I write this, as perhaps more significant for the market.  NOW is one...

Back from the Dead with a More Dovish Fed

In light of the The Fed truly adopting a more Bernanke/Yellen-esque approach today, or at least appearing to for the meantime, it would not surprise me in the least to see the destitute homebuilders enjoy something of a renaissance. On the XHB sector ETF, below, note the base bottom potential over $36. Names like DHI PHM TOL, among others, are...
