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

Alternate Universes

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


Equity markets mostly recovered from an early swoon this week buoyed by stellar performance from digital tech giants while safety plays got ignored. The NASDAQ100 closed +4% for the week and up 25% YTD, but the Dow Industrials closed down -.15% for the week  and -7% YTD. So much for the Dow being blue chips, maybe we change the label to red chips. Meanwhile, gold and silver continued their upward trajectories leaving breakaway gaps in

Silver Entering Ludicrous Mode

July 26, 2020

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


** This week both Mish and Keith reviewed the big picture together. Market Outlook video contributed by Keith.   Equity markets stalled with all the key US indexes closing down, reversing a strong start for the week.

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


With the Russell 2000 breaking out over the 50 and 200-week moving averages, we should see nothing but blue skies, right? Maybe. We have lots of positives based on hope, of course. Retail XRT, as featured a while back, is doing well. Sister Semiconductors SMH is on the road less traveled to new all-time highs. Transportation IYT faces a critical test at the 200-WMA. Biotechnology IBB consolidates over the 5-year breakout. So, what’s up with

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

July 19, 2020

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


** This week both Mish and Keith reviewed the big picture together. Market Outlook commentary was done by Mish, with highlights and video contributed by Keith. With Daily’s recently titled “Granny Retail Hangs Tough” and “Granddad Russell 2000 Takes the Lead,” no wonder we saw rotation out of tech and into the matriarch and patriarch of the Economic Modern Family. However, this catch up play is a long time coming considering that Biotechnology (Big Brother)

August 4, 2020

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


A few cautious flags were thrown up today in spite of the new all-time highs in NASDAQ The volume was light. After Friday's spike in volume, Monday QQQs saw below average daily volume.

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

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe

Yes, in this post I’m going to outline an options trade setup that enables you to quickly bank
