September 30, 2020

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Co-Written by Mish and Forrest It’s time to start watching the homebuilding sector. We can look at this using the symbol XHB, which is an ETF based off the SPY. The reason that homebuilders are interesting right now, is because it has been outperforming all the other sectors in the US economy based on a 6-month range. It’s also performing very well on a 3-month range, though it’s just a tad behind the transportation sector.

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.

Many of these stocks become the leaders of the next market

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Co-Written by Mish and Forrest Today the QQQs, SPY, and DIA, closed near the September 21st lows which we noted as possible support. While we rallied intraday, we also sold off, giving back most of the days upward progress. The VXX also failed to break through the 50-DMA to the upside, but It’s still over prior days low and could be poised to test the moving average again. Buyers came back for JNK today bringing

This week the cover story in Barron’s analyzed and opined about a specific subset of the hot marijuana industry.

A Classic Standoff

September 6, 2020

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


Markets retreated this week correcting almost 10% after setting new all-time highs on an intraday basis in two US Equity (SPY, QQQ) benchmarks. China announced that it was reducing holdings of US Bonds due to an accelerating trade war. This was part of the catalyst driving the reversal.

Warning Signs Of A Top; Short-Term

August 30, 2020

Weekly Market Outlook, by Geoff Bysshe


The news of last week was the Fed’s announcement about their “updated monetary policy strategy.” The big change was to suggest that they would let inflation overshoot their 2% goal to prioritize getting unemployment as low as they consider realistic. This probably isn’t much more than stating what the market already assumed they are currently doing, but it does change expectations for how they’ll act when inflation shows up without low enough unemployment. The absurdity
