Semiconductors: From Wonder Woman to Mistress of Gloom

March 23, 2019

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Most of the past week, we focused on Semiconductors SMH. Beginning with the Moody Little Sister last Wednesday, SMH was indeed was the sector of the Modern Family to watch. Last Thursday, SMH opened higher and continued its ascent to the highest level it had been since June 2018. What troubled us, hence the Thursday Daily’s warning about feeding the bulls artificially flavored green Jell-o, was that all the other sectors of the economic Modern

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

A Colorful Week: Yellow Vests and Red Flags

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


Risk Gauges flipped 100% negative (see risk gauges below) as Global Equities closed on their lows for the week. Member of our Alpha Rotation service have seen the progression of the market’s deterioration in the risk gauges shown below (read right to left).

Market Feeds Bulls Artificially Flavored Green Jell-o

March 21, 2019

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


The focus of yesterday’s Daily was Semiconductors SMH. And keeping your focus on SMH turned out to be pretty good advice. SMH opened higher (above the pivotal 106.42) and continued its ascent to the highest level it has been since June 2018. Sister Semiconductor’s Wonder Woman status motivated a few other members of the Family, which is exactly what we thought could happen. As mentioned last night, “IBB (Biotechnology) and SMH are the two most

The Home Run Options Pay Day (500%+)

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

Risk Gauges Head South of the Border

March 10, 2019

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


U.S. Equity markets reversed their relentless climb up this year and dropped between -2 to -4% for the week. Risk Gauges flipped 100% negative by the end of the week, despite the rally into the close on Friday. So, I’m not sure what my favorite piece of tabloid news was this week, but certainly, David Dukes support of Omar Ilhan was a top contender. Seems like a merger is in the making and we will

A Focus on our Moody Sister Semiconductors

March 20, 2019

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Coming in to today, we had eyes on Semiconductors SMH. The reason is that our sister of the economic Modern Family has led the recent rally. With the Russell 2000 IWM and Transportation IYT relatively weak, SMH had to hold up in order to keep her siblings together. Before the dovish FOMC announcement, it looked like SMH was destined to join her Granddad and Brother in the rubble. However, right on cue, Jerome Powell and

Use January To Avoid Bear Market Declines

December 25, 2018

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


Every year January sets up price levels that provide great trend trades and market direction insight for the entire next year. This is not the typical adage of, “the market will go the way of January.” For example, January 2018, was an unusually strong one, and shortly you’ll see why the pattern it created is contributing to the one of the worst December’s in decades. In fact, in this post, I’m going to focus on

Good Junk

March 3, 2019

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


Last week’s “Risk On” mood was most clearly demonstrated by the chart above which shows that despite the jump in rates, high yield debt, (Junk) out-performed the TLT in both the short and longer-term measures. Not surprising, all four key U.S. equity markets also continued their relentless climb up, +.5% (on average) shrugging off what would normally be considered lousy news. A failed summit with North Koreans and the Cohen spectacle on the Hill was

Can the Russell’s & Transports Pick Up the Pieces?

March 19, 2019

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Last night, we drilled down into the entire Economic Modern Family by looking at the weekly charts. With very similar chart patterns in the IWM and in IYT we surmised that both, still trading within the big ugly red bar from 2 weeks ago, are indecisive. We thought today could be the day when both would launch following the lead of their Family member Sister Semiconductors. We hoped that the strength in the S&P 500

Equities Rise While Risk Gauges Retreat

February 24, 2019

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


All four key US Equity markets continued their relentless climb up, +.72 % (on average) over the shortened week., However, there were some noteworthy changes in leadership. The most obvious one is that US global leadership is waning as the baton passed to Emerging markets, China and Hong Kong. In fact, our quant based model Alpha Rotation, (one of five we have created), just scaled out of some of its long positions in US stocks

5/6 of the Economic Modern Family Queued for Takeoff?

March 18, 2019

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


This past Saturday, we waited on a long line of planes readying for takeoff. The busy spring break travel time has begun. When we left for the conference in Florida on March 11th, the Russell 2000 IWM, closed at 154.29. Today, IWM closed at 155.75, higher in price, but without any notable technical barriers pierced on the up or downside. Furthermore, unlike the heavy traffic that the happy spring breakers are bringing to airlines and

How To Identify & Trade A Reversal With 'Real Motion'

August 10, 2018

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


This is a great example of a trade I just stumbled on by noticing Costo (COST) was going to open lower. I looked at our Real Motion indicators and saw that it was the exact set up I'd taught the night before in a training webinar. It combines a daily and intra-day shift in momentum that you can't see in normal charts and a simple use of the opening range. If you'd like to watch

Where the Rubber Meets the Road

February 18, 2019

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


The nation averted another shutdown at the expense of Trump declaring a national emergency. Equities loved it, led by the Grandpa Russell (IWM) which was up +4.23% on the week. (https://www.marketgauge.com/resources/the-modern-family-how-you-can-stay-on-the-right-side-of-the-market/). Grandma Retail (XRT) shrugged off a terrible December, as sales were down-1.2%. This number has not been that bad in almost 10 years, which translates into no more rate hikes this year. US bonds seem to be tracing out a classic bottoming formation which
