Late Night Strategy for Friday

On the latest push lower in the precious metals miners this month, the junior gold miners in the GDXJ ETF (daily chart, below) actually lagged the senior miners in the GDX ETF. Typically, that is a bearish sign of "risk off" in the complex, with the presumption of another leg lower in the space imminent. However, precious metals miners have...

Late Night Strategy for Thursday

One thing is for sure with this market--You had better be precise with your stock and industry selection. As an example, within the consumer discretionary space we have the major casinos essentially crashing, in LVS MGM WYNN, while the major cruise lines look as bullish as any group of charts around, CCL (first chart, below) NCLH RCL. As I...

Late Night Strategy for Wednesday

After a nice breakout to new all-time highs, I believe Wal-Mart could easily be setting up as a quick short. On the daily chart, below, note the blue lines indicating a tight range of late below the the 20-day simple moving average. On weakness, WMT is likely to breakdown further and at least test its 50-day moving average. A move over $85,...

Late Night Strategy for Tuesday

SHW, seen on the daily chart below, illustrates that even the strongest issues in the market are hanging on for dear life. Note the highlighted rising channel price has enjoyed climbing of late, but recently struggled to maintain. I view a move back under $245 as representing a short trigger to play for a well-defined channel breakdown. I...

Late Night Strategy for Monday

Futures are pointing towards a bounce in the market. If that holds, SONC is a long idea on strength over $27.50. On the first daily chart, below, the fast food play has been in a potent uptrend for a while now, basing well above all major moving averages. But if the broad market bounce fails to hold and the selling resumes, then I still think...

Late Night Strategy for Friday

In addition to casual dining plays like RRGB TXRH, in the software space keep an eye on RUBI as another long idea on strength. If the IPO from last April can clear $15, seen on the first daily chart below, combined with a broad market which cooperates, I would look for a breakout higher. But if we see broad market downside follow-through to...

Late Night Strategy for Thursday

On the long side, BKW is back in contention after Wednesday's stunning outperformance to the bloody market sell-off. On the first daily chart, below, a move back over $35 can trigger a long starter position, especially if the broad market is in bounce-back mode. And on the short side, extended airlines like UAL printed exhaustion candles, seen...

Late Night Strategy for Wednesday

If the broad market follows-through higher or acts constructively after Tuesday's upside reversal, then MIDD UTHR are two actionable long trading ideas on further strength. On their respective daily charts, below, note the orderly price consolidations within the context of overall uptrends. Another push towards recent highs makes the threat...

Late Night Strategy for Tuesday

Futures are soft overnight, though we know this bull market has a long history of flipping them green before the bell. Still, it is tough to ignore the technical damage sustained in many premier issues in the Nasdaq Composite Index of late. I am thus sticking to the inter-market, opportunistic and nimble approach, in lieu of heavy directional...

08Dec12:29 amEST

Late Night Strategy for Monday

With the relative and absolute strength in many fast food and casual dining plays of late, keep an eye on The Middleby Corporation as a long idea. MIDD makes the innovative ovens for the casual and fast food firms so that you can enjoy their wholesome and nutritious dishes as economically feasibly as possible. I view a move over $98 as...

05Dec12:28 amEST

Late Night Strategy for Friday

Now that natural gas is back to being hated and very oversold, seen below its lower Bollinger Band on the UNG ETF daily chart below, I am considering a long UGAZ trade again if we see a gap lower on Friday morning. This would be a rare knife-catch for me. But I believe it may be worth the effort, with a firm stop-loss, given the sharp decline...

04Dec12:13 amEST

Late Night Strategy for Thursday

In addition to ACHN, let's keep BLUE on watch, seen on the first daily chart below, as one of the better-looking biotechnology technical setups for a long idea over $43. Both ACHN and BLUE have been basing nicely of late within the context of uptrends. And on the short side, I still have my eye on the XLE, energy sector ETF, especially if the...

03Dec12:32 amEST

Late Night Strategy for Wednesday

IRG, owner of Joe's Crab Shack and a few other restaurant chains, is a forming a potential long base bottom, seen on the daily chart, below. In addition to the technically-sound charts n the casual dining space, namely BJRI FRGI RRGB TXRH (also casual/fast food plays BKW BLMN KONA JACK SONC), IRG may be a long play here if the stock pushes up...

02Dec12:02 amEST

Late Night Strategy for Tuesday

On the long side, let's stick with RRGB with a $70 trigger above as a setup to squeeze shorts in this low-floater. The causal dining plays have shown relative strength of late. And this one looks as set-up as any of them. And on the short side, if Intel and the semiconductors are truly acting toppy here, then I have my eyes on the levered...

Late Night Strategy for Monday

Futures are soft, and there are several reasons I outlined in my Weekend Market Film Session to be cautious. Nonetheless, if the holiday rally ensues I am still eyeing the casual dining space. BLMN has an improving chart, seen on the daily timeframe, below. Also watch KONA for another entry over $25.80, but be aware it trades thinly. And on...

28Nov12:22 amEST

Late Night Strategy for Friday

With crude oil getting drilled over Thanksgiving break, I expect my ERY long (triple-short the energy sector stocks) to do well on Friday. I may consider adding to the position, discussed in more detail in this blog post on Wednesday, if dip-buyers get stuffed on bounce attempts. As for bottom-fishing crude oil itself, there is no doubt...

Late Night Strategy for Wednesday

Both RUSL and JNUG, the triple-long ETF's for Russia and the junior gold miners, respectively, will undergo the notorious  reverse split on December 23rd . That news reminds me of some actionable ideas for Wednesday. I am viewing JNUG as a long idea if GDXJ (the straight-up junior gold miner ETF) can clear $29. 80 above. Meanwhile, Russia is...

25Nov12:16 amEST

Late Night Strategy for Tuesday

With casual dining/fast food plays hot on Monday, RRGB is still on my radar as a short squeeze/low float long idea on any further strength. The first daily chart, below, shows a tight price consolidation after the stock's sharp rally off the October lows. And on the short side, if the market experiences some weakness I would consider NetSuite...

24Nov12:03 amEST

Late Night Strategy for Monday

Major copper miner (with some gold exposure) Freeport-McMoran saw a nice gap higher on Friday from beaten-down conditions dating back to the stock's swoon, beginning in July. On the weekly timeframe, below, you can see the pair of bottoming "hammer" reversal candlesticks printed back in June 2013 as well as earlier this month. Freeport is...

21Nov12:47 amEST

Late Night Strategy for Friday

ACHN is back on watch as a long idea to squeeze shorts in the biotech space. As you can see on the daily chart, below, the stock is forming a tight consolidation pattern (light blue lines) within the context of an overall uptrend. I am looking at a move over $13.60 to set the squeeze/breakout in motion. On the short side, keep an eye on major...
