Good Instruments That Correct with the Market

February 27, 2020

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


When I do a webinar on swing trading, one of the concepts I teach is watching good instruments that correct in bad markets. Looking at the weekly chart in solar energy of TAN the ETF, this is one of the top places to watch when/if the market stabilizes. On the Daily chart, it must hold 34.00 and is still in a bullish phase. On the weekly chart, after a multi-year high posted last week, this

The End Of The Bulls’ Run In Semiconductors?

December 4, 2019

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


When a leading market sector sells off hard, traders should take note to avoid getting surprised by a broader market sell-off. Even better than simply noticing an important sector reversing, would be to be to anticipate the move in time to avoid it or profit from it.On Monday, the Semiconductor ETF (SMH), a recent market leader, was one of the hardest hit sectors in the market’s decline. In this post you’ll discover how you could

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


The Corona virus continues to run amuck and is creating havoc on human lives and the markets.  So rather than focus on opinions about whether or not it will become a worldwide pandemic, let’s look at the immediate impact. First and foremost, Apple was hit hard this week and ended down over -2.5% on Friday and is now off -5% from its recent highs. Considering Apple is the biggest component in our key benchmark indexes,

Track (pun intended) Transportation Sector’s 200-WMA

February 26, 2020

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Although Transportation IYT was not the first one to show signs of weakness long before the recent crash, this sector has broken down hard. That distinction of the first sector to tell us something was amiss goes to our Prodigal Son Regional Banks KRE. I gave that head’s up in a Daily back on January 15th. Yet, Transportation through the years, has been our “go to” for reliable information on whether the market is ready

Risk Gauges Still Flashing Yellow

February 17, 2020

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


US stocks seem to like the bickering from democratic presidential contenders and the lingering threat of the Coronavirus, as three out of four US equity benchmarks hit new all-time highs. Small caps and value stocks continue to lag. As I am writing this (Monday), the spread of the Coronavirus seems to be subsiding with Chinese markets bouncing. Meanwhile, Berkshire Hathaway is sitting on its biggest pile of cash ever ($128 billion) while Charlie Munger warns

Brick and Mortar Retail Has its Own Virus

February 25, 2020

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


As you will see when you check out the chart of Granny Retail, she has had a virus since 2015. Only once in 2018, did she look cured. Since then, while the S&P 500, NASDAQ 100 and the Dow went to make new all-time highs earlier this year, Granny XRT could not even clear the 2019 highs. Now, there is a good argument that brick and mortar retail has gone the way of the dinosaur.

These Big Profit Setups Always Happen When The Market Pulls Back

June 9, 2019

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


When the market sells off these stocks lead to trades that yield quick returns and then massive swing trades. It happens without fail because this is how the market works. When the market sells off, weak stocks get hit and many never come back. At the same time, the stocks that the big institutions like hold up, or sell off in a smaller degree. Many of these stocks become the leaders of the next market

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

February 9, 2020

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


The Senate acquitted President Trump this week ending the impeachment saga and China reduced tariffs on $75 billion dollars of US exports. Equity markets loved it, closing up over +3% on decent volume. The overall picture for equities is still murky despite the move to all time highs in the S&P500, the Dow Industrials, and the Nasdaq 100. The Euro looks like is heading to par against the dollar and could be an early sign

Where Does the Market Have to Hold?

February 24, 2020

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Now that many bulls got bit by the vampire bear early on, the question for tomorrow and beyond is whether those bulls can rescind the vampire bear’s invitation. As we explored over the weekend, humans can rescind their invitations to vampires, which causes the vampires to immediately leave the house. Thus far in the current market environment, the Bulls, if threatened after inviting a Bear in, simply had to open the shades to let the sun in and the

Top 7 Contenders In the U.S. Marijuana Market

February 18, 2019

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


This week the cover story in Barron’s analyzed and opined about a specific subset of the hot marijuana industry. As a result, I’ve found a few stocks you may want to keep your eye on for big trend trades. Here’s how I found them. One of my favorite ways of finding ideas for big trend trades is to let someone else do the fundamental research, and for 30- years Barron’s has been one of the

Tesla Defies the Selloff, Short Sellers Smoked

February 2, 2020

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


US equities tanked, and as we highlighted last week the spreading virus was simply the tipping point for an insanely overvalued and overbought market. Three out of four equity benchmarks are down for the year. Apple looks like it ran out of momentum and might have put in an intermediate term top or even more. In fact, most FANG stocks are looking tired and are getting some dental work, which entails filing down some very

Like Vampires, A Market Bear Has to be Invited In

February 23, 2020

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Vampires cannot enter private human homes unless they are invited in by the owner of the house. In the case of public places however, vampires require no invite. Humans can rescind their invitations to vampires, which causes the vampire to immediately leave the house. Such has been the case for market bears and the homes of the bulls. Occasionally, like Friday, they get invited into the Bull’s home, only to see that invite rescinded as none of the phases deteriorated from bullish. So,

January 28, 2019

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


When you make 500% on a trade, I consider it a home run. When you do it in 2 days or less, it’s even better! You might be thinking that the only way to make 500% in 2 days or less is to get lucky with a huge unexpected move in a stock, but that’s not true. Yes, in this post I’m going to outline an options trade setup that enables you to quickly bank

Equities Meet Mother Nature

January 26, 2020

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


The outbreak of a nasty virus that started in China has spread from animals to humans and now the financial markets. Equities actually sold off, hitting Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan the hardest. Not surprising, since those markets have been most impacted by the spreading virus. The divergence of our Risk Gauges action as equities  continued to new highs was  major concern and sets up the scenario where the virus could be the catalyst
