Payments Under the Christmas Tree

Payments growth leader Square has fallen off the radar from many traders for a good while now, and rightfully so. On the second weekly chart, below, Jack Dorsey's other firm, SQ, topped out back in very early-October 2018 and has since been a glaring laggard amid various cycles when software and growth stocks were hot as can be. Since...

It's Not OK to Overlook Snap, Boomer

Late-last year shares of SNAP slumped as low as a $4-handle, easily one of the more ferocious decline during the broad market fourth quarter correction of 2018, with bears declaring the name to be imminently dead and a social media/app fad which had since run its course.  Since then, however, the stock literally "snapped" back hard, rallying in...

Dating Games; Earnings Games

I spent the better part of the last few hours trying to get ahold of someone in the corporate department for one of my holdings to see whether or not they actually had earnings tomorrow morning. And with the way corporate phone lines are set up now, it seemed like a miracle that I was able to get another human being on the actual phone to get...

Coming Home for the Holidays

In the midst of what seems like too many market players and pundits alike focused on whether or not we see another pullback before a potential year-end move higher, my focus is more on the underlying health of various key sectors.  Recently, we have seen the likes of semiconductors flash spurts of brilliance, although they be able to reasonably...

Dicerna for the Discerning Trader

There is nothing inherently wrong with choosing to abstain from trading individual biotechnology issues. After all, we have seen plenty of examples of the years of biotechs looking sharp, acting well with promising drug(s) in the pipeline, only to gap down an obscene amount due to a disappointing drug trial and/or an unfavorable decision by the...

Remember American Express?

Still in the Dow. Still relevant. Still an iconic brand.  With the Dow Jones Industrial Average surging up and out of a multi-month/quarter consolidation, it is hard not to think that AXP will reemerge as more of a high profile stock, once again.  Inside Market Chess Subscription Services, we noted the name for Members this morning as breaking...

A Journey Full of Danger

You just knew there would be the inevitable adversity as energy stocks embark on their journey to cement a major bottom. Just this morning, for example, the sector is fighting to shrug off FANG or Diamondback Energy's roughly 13% post-earnings selloff.  The good news is that Whiting Petroleum (WLL) actually went green this morning off its own...

Long Live the Commodities Bear Market, Part Deux

More good news for the working thesis that the energy complex has put in a long-term bear market bottom: Natural gas is confirming an intermediate-term inverse head and shoulders bottoming formation, seen below on the UNG ETF daily chart, with a strong gap up above its 200-day simple moving average (yellow line) today.  True, natty is enjoying...

Let's Take a Recess from the Recession Talk

Further strength in the broad market today, including the suddenly explosive-looking small caps in the IWM (ETF for the Russell 2000 Index) is surely putting bears on the run. For a while now, the overhang of choppy price action in the face of geopolitical, economic, and monetary risks, not to mention global growth slowing, all served to give...

Time to Go to Work

Simply put, as we observe the weekly chart for the silver metal ETF, below, it is high time for the precious complex to get going again.With the FOMC out of the way for the foreseeable future, the metals and miners have a reasonably dovish Fed at their backs, although I think they will eventually need to learn to thrive even if rates tick up...

Not Trading Scraps Before the Primetime Schedule

We have some uninspiring price action this morning in front of a loaded primetime schedule this afternoon and evening, headlined by the FOMC at 2pm EST and then AAPL FB SBUX TWLO earnings this evening. All things considered, though, the cautious tone of the tape this morning may not be the worst thing in the world for bulls, as it helps to cool...

Banks for the Memories

It is worth reiterating a point we have made previously over the years: The financials in the XLF ETF are pretty much the only major part of the market not to have overtaken their prior all-time highs from last decade. Naturally, with the banks at the epicenter of the financial debit crisis in 2008, it only makes sense that they would be the...

Do Some Detective Work

On the back of breaking news from Reuters this morning that Google or Alphabet is in talks to acquire Fitbit, shares of FIT were higher by around 22% as I write this. Despite the FIT chart sporting a fairly strong downtrend much of its time since 2015, we know that the business model was such that a buyout could come at any time. After all,...

Flexing in Time for Halloween

A sharp bounce virtually across the board in the bludgeoned software sector is giving bulls hope, once again, for the worst being over among growth stocks. While that may be the case, as the elder software statesman MSFT bounces a bit after earnings, there remains considerable risk of backing, filling, and more chopping around even if the lows...
