Your Chances Are, Your Chances Are, Awfully Good

June 24, 2017

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Last week, the market traded like a golden bull that crooned to keep his head above the fire. The S&P 500 began the week strong. The rest of the week, SPY never achieved taking out the highs. Rather, it sold off, broke the fast moving average, yet held critical support above 242. The NASDAQ 100, after the nasty spill from its all-time highs on June 9th, spent the week trying to demonstrate it rather sing

Have The QQQ's Wrecked The Bull Market?

June 11, 2017

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


Friday’s tech wreck followed a pattern that you can easily identify, so that you can avoid getting caught big down days like the one in QQQ. In this video I review one of the patterns that will give you this important warning that a big bearish move may be coming. The next question traders should be asking is whether or not Friday’s collapse in the QQQ indicates a general market top. If you use the

Bankers, Bitcoins, Bubbles, and Breaking Bad

June 25, 2017

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


This week, tech and biotech stocks led the market. The Healthcare sector roared with the prospect of higher profits, should Obamacare be shelved. IBB, the biotech ETF rallied 9.57%. There are so many concurrent, self-reinforcing bubbles, it’s hard to choose a favorite. The first, the flood of money from central banks and bond market, is telling us two things: The Fed will not raise again soon, nor reduce its balance sheet. Good enough reasons for

A Market Without a Catalyst on the Other Side of New Highs

June 22, 2017

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


A Steinway without a pianist on the other side of the window. A Market without a catalyst on the other side of new highs. Both images leave us longing for the window to open, a pianist to play, and for us to sit back swept away by the music. That’s where we sit with one day left to the week and one week left to the month. Some of you might disagree with me re:

Existential Questions and the Current Market Rally

June 18, 2017

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


The rotation out of tech and into big cap Dow /Industrial value stocks continued as the NASDQ 100 (QQQ) closed - 1.8 % for the week and those boring Dow stocks(DIA) closed positive +.4%. Sector rotation out of tech and semiconductors continued while the flight to safer plays such as utilities (XLU)and the undervalued Industrials sector (XLI) remained strong. Last week we highlighted that value stocks have underperformed tech for the last 15 years and

A Market That Gives a Little Less Than It Promised.

June 21, 2017

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


There’s style and design and then there’s short-term versus long-term vision. The 1950 Studebaker Champion Starlight Coupe exemplified that dilemma. This Studebaker looked comparatively futuristic at the time. A car long on style and design, the company itself became short-sighted. Plagued by high labor costs, issues with quality control and a shrinking balance sheet, by 1954, Studebaker was losing money. Ultimately, Studebaker’s “Fight for Survival” was lost in 1966. Here, in 2017, the stock market

How To Profit When The Bulls Hijack Your Bearish Key Reversal Pattern…

March 29, 2017

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


One of the best reasons to trade with pattern based trade setups is that you can quickly know when your trade is like to work or fail, and… Sometimes the best trades are failed patterns! For example, in strong trends ‘bearish top’ patterns, such as key reversals, often become bullish trades. This is because they create the temporary selloffs that fake out the bulls, and then propel the stock or ETF higher. Whether you choose

Changing of the Guard to Value?

June 11, 2017

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


What looked like the start of another leg up of a parabolic run for NASDQ 100 (QQQ) disappointingly turned into a rout, with some key stocks dropping up to 10% from the gap up Friday morning. Some are calling it a “flash crash,” with the QQQ down 2.4 % on Friday.  For example, AMZN opened at 1012, retreated down to 927, then closed at 977.40. This type of volatility is usually reserved for earnings announcements,

Is the Market a False Hologram We’re Trained to See?

June 20, 2017

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


There’s the market and then there’s a hologram of the market. A hologram is a 2-dimensional image that contains all the 3-dimensional information of an object. When viewing a hologram, you can tilt the image and see the orientation of the shape move. It’s as if you see the object in the picture from a different angle. How does that apply to the market? The market appears 2-dimensional although it is 3-dimensional. The “wishful thinking” type attitude

The Dangerous Price Level In IWM That No One Is Focused On (Yet)

March 23, 2017

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


Tuesday’s sell off brought some of the major indexes down to some attractive levels. However, it’s also caused the IWM to flirt with a very dangerous condition that no one is talking about! In this video I discuss the importance of the recent lows in the IWM, and why it’s more than just another test of 133-134 level. In the video I also demonstrate how you could have anticipated the big breaks in the key

Clear Skies for Equities; But What About Gold?

June 4, 2017

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


US Equities markets didn’t even blink with the announcement that the United States is now aligned with Syria in rejecting the Paris Climate Accord. How that relates to good business over the longer term seems elusive. This week’s market action demonstrates how equities pricing horizon is all about the next quarter. Hence, all our key indexes closed at all-time highs with the NASDQ 100 (QQQ) up over 21% YTD. All key US equity indexes were

The Market Tugs on the Reluctant Investors’ Ear

June 19, 2017

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Let’s pretend that the black and gray dog (Havanese) represents relunctant investors. That makes the Aussie puppy the market. He nudges the Havanese to keep buying the market. After all, the Dow made a new all-time high and the Russell 2000 cleared back over the fast moving average. The market wants to play. The more experienced dog has doubts. Over the weekend I wrote, “…even with the barbed wire gathered in the middle of the

This post involves two very important concepts in anticipating the market’s next move: 1. Relative strength, and 2. Deviations from a norm. Therefore, this is something you should put into your trading bag of tricks no matter when you read this, but.. If you are reading this on the day it was posted it may prove to be very timely, because the conclusion drawn from this post could be that the market’s current melt up

A Slap, A Shove and a Bump

May 28, 2017

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


The US equities markets recovered after its nasty swoon on May 17, following in Melania’s footsteps.  It gave the markets a meek slap on the wrist before bumping up to all-time highs with a 6-day consecutive run-up. Equities even endured Trump’s shove of both the core NATO doctrine (article 5) and Dusko Markovic, the leader and newest member of NATO, Montenegro. Trump then went on to another event and threatened to put tariffs on German
