Retail’s Conspicuous & Inconspicuous Consumption

November 20, 2019

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


It’s about that time of year again. Soon is the time when consumer sentiment is about to go through the ultimate test-Black Friday. Black Friday is traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year. In 2018, traffic to stores fell as much as 9 percent from 2017. The number of people visiting stores in 2017 was 4 percent lower than in 2016. Many retailers, including Amazon, offer deals way earlier, upstaging Black Friday itself. The competition is so fierce, stores

Oil Compressing

November 17, 2019

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


US Equities shrugged off the political theater on Capitol Hill, the trade war with China, and assorted rebellions on multiple continents. Three out of the four key US equity indexes hit new all-time highs up another .75% on average, while small caps (IWM) still lag by a wide margin. The newest riots underway are in Chile. These started soon after the local government announced a 20-cent increase in subway fares in Santiago (its capitol). This

Is the Russell 2000 Worth 2000 Words?

November 19, 2019

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


For weeks now, we have waited for the Russell 2000 IWM to show signs of strength. With the S&P 500, NASDAQ 100 and the Dow making yet another new all-time high, IWM just looks so tired. Today, IWM picked up a bit and outperformed the other indices percentagewise. Perhaps IWM found inspiration from Biotechnology IBB one of his kin, as IBB rose 2%. Nevertheless, IWM has yet to clear last week’s high at 159.88. Then,

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

Stock Market Tells Bears, “Eat Crow!”

November 18, 2019

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


I went to a recycled art show over the weekend. I had not expected to see so many creative and skillfully recycled pieces. The photographed piece was made by a student. His or her intention is unbeknownst to me. However, it strikes me as a particularly relevant way to describe the market action as we start the week. First off, on the topic of recycling, a lot of news has been creatively and skillfully recycled.

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

Small Caps and Value Trying

November 3, 2019

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


Equity markets globally blasted higher this week with Russia leading the pack of actively traded country funds up, +2.65%. As we highlighted last week, Russia has been strong and received added help from the energy market on Friday.  Russia (RSX) is now up over +15% the past 6 months, outpacing the US, which is up about +4%. On the domestic front, both the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ 100 hit new all-time highs. The big

Structural Cracks in the Equities Market

November 17, 2019

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


As the S&P 500, Dow and NASDAQ keep roaring to new highs, the disconnect not only among the market sectors, but also among the world’s populace, keeps expanding. Yet, in an almost surreal way, tech and fortune 500 stocks keep running up. Meanwhile, the civil unrest we see happening on the streets of the world versus the insulation of those in their ivory towers is like the original adobe houses we see in Santa Fe.

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

From Russia With Love

October 27, 2019

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


As markets exit from the most dicey month of the year, it is interesting to note that key US equity benchmarks are still down a bit over the last three month rolling period despite the recent surge. Don’t get me wrong, equity markets look poised to surge into year-end, but the longer-term weekly charts are still looking heavy from a momentum perspective. The exception to this is the three-month performance of the NASDAQ 100 which

Has the US Dollar Topped Out?

November 14, 2019

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Assuming the answer is yes, three points to explore: Where would I reverse that opinion? If correct, what does that mean for the markets and economy? If correct, where is the underlying support? On the dollar, I would reverse the bias of a top should DXY first clear 98.45, but even more so if DXY takes out 99.40 or recent highs. If the dollar has topped out, it means several things for the market. First

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

Sea Change Underway led by Small Caps, Value, and Foreign Equities

October 20, 2019

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


US equity markets were mostly flat this week except for small caps which led, up +1.59% playing catch up. Looking under the hood showed that sector rotation was confusing. Semis and, technology which are the leading hot speculative sectors, backed off as did Utilities which is a safety play. Its unusual that both were down at the same time, hence we have a mixed message. While we are looking under the hood, we see some
