The Appropriate Measures

Revised Coronavirus numbers out of Asia jolted equity futures last night, which seems to be spilling over into the cash session this morning.  At some point, we knew the market could initiate a shakeout or well-timed rug-pull to keep longs honest after the quasi melt-up we have seen of late. However, as it stands now we have some appropriate...

I Have Two Words for You

"The jacket!" Speaking of jackets, more retail stocks are squeezing higher with authority than I can list right now. We have already noted the likes of RH SFIX here and for Members as trades.  But have a look at a ZUMZ, for example, among many, many others.

Fun Operating in the Shadows

In life, sometimes it pays to be a bit shady. While there are tons of good, decent people out there, there are also some people who check in every so often merely to learn of your intimate personal business and then disappear until the next go-round.  When I was a kid, a very wise man once told me that the best way to fend off intrusive,...

Creating a Temple of Doom for Shorts

Heavily-shorted stocks still seem to be putting quite a bit of duress on their respective short-sellers, as a general proposition. For reference, you can easily look up the short percentage of a stock's float for free using FinViz.com, for example. Anything more than 7-8% of the float (shares outstanding) sold short can be considered a...

Punishing the Pack Mentality

Gaming the market for fancy types of trades can often be a rather perilous endeavor, since there is considerable danger that we succumb to ego and hubris in lieu of sound, profitable decisions.  Be that as it may, there is no denying some of the magnificent moves we have seen in heavily-shorted stocks to the upside of late, which seem to be...

Still Bullish on Twitter for the Long Run

This will be a topic of analysis I will flesh out in more depth soon for VIP Members when I give my regular long-term portfolio update. However, TWTR remains a long-term holding of mine and has since the $16 handle a few years back.  While I recognize the last few quarters have been a long slog sideways, at best, for bulls and new especially...

Locked Horns

At first blush it appeared as though shares of TSLA finally coming back down would be ignored by the broad market, given the opening gap higher. However, tech stocks seem to be sensitive to a bunch of earnings selloff in that space, notably software, and led the mid-morning fade lower just now.  The issue now is whether bulls can step back in...

Life Isn't Always Bear

There will be a time in the future when bears will be able to look back on this time period and laugh (at least this bears who remained liquid will be able to), what with TSLA squeezing into the sky on a daily basis and various biotech and software names surging one after the next.  But that time has not yet arrived.  For now, we have another...

Now Comes Your Real Winter Journey

The time period after the Super Bowl is typically when we see the dog days of winter begin to set in.  The energy of the holiday season and new year jubilation fades into the distance. And, yet, spring is still too far into the future to think of as something tangible, just yet. Despite all of the advanced technology in markets today, human...

Right NOW or Later

A big spot for the market this morning, as dip-buyers initially faltered and we are now at risk for another leg lower in this pullback. The true test for traders, however, as to whether it is worth putting capital at risk on the long side here likely hinges on whether we see something akin to a "stock picker's market," where individual names...

Resisting the Drama

I had a few hedges on headed into today and rather quickly took them off this morning as the opening gap higher built on itself amid a fairly calm and orderly push higher. While we may very well have more backing and filling to do during this consolidation phase, it is likely correct to avoid become too dramatic based on headiness and fears....

In Position for the Pullback

As we have been noting with Members in recent weeks, the late-January period after MLK Day is typically one where we see the enthusiasm of the new year wear off, combined with the dead of winter setting in. Beyond that, this year we have a wrinkle in the form of a pandemic fears and headlines, not to mention a generally extended market.  So...
