Did My Fortune Cookie Tell Me to Buy Toyota?

January 23, 2020

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Occasionally, I like to feature a trade idea. Generally, I will go more for a commodity, index or sector. However, this fortune cookie got me thinking. At first, I thought it was about my Range Rover, which is a 2012 Autobiography supercharged version. It’s currently useless and sitting at the shop as the timing chain busted. We later learned that there are a couple of class action suits against Land Rover as this model was

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

Bears Grizzled and Going Vegan

January 19, 2020

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


US Equities made mincemeat (for those vegans’ please substitute meat with a BYND burger) of the bears as last Friday’s bearish engulfing pattern failed with equities again roaring to new highs. All key U.S. equity indexes are now up on the year led by NASADQ 100 (QQQ) which is up more that 5%. This is more than one would make sitting with the U.S. long bond for over a year. However, there is a clear

The Economic Modern Family Stays Inside

January 22, 2020

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


The weekly charts of the Economic Modern Family (Russell 2000, Transportation, Retail, Regional Banks, Biotechnology and Semiconductors) tell a mid-week story. With the exception of Semiconductors, all the other members are trading inside the trading range of last week. What does that tell us? To review, last night we looked at junk bonds JNK as a gauge of investor’s appetite for risk. The 2020 high thus far is 110.33. The price stopped right at a

Cane Looking Able

January 12, 2020

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


US Equity markets rejected a gap to new highs and closed on Friday with a bearish engulfing pattern. Engulfing patterns are notoriously unreliable except when they are not. This is similar in concept to the October seasonal where several devastating high sigma events have occurred (1929, 1987,2008). Normally, October is a pretty strong month, however when it’s not, its life changing if you are caught on the wrong side of it. Considering that the massive

How’s the Market’s Appetite for Risk?

January 21, 2020

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


I hope you did not miss my annual write-up about the upcoming Chinese New Year, Year of the Metal Rat. As mentioned, this year the fire element is completely absent. Raymond Lo (my go-to source) says that pessimism, cynicism and despair will set in and contribute to an economic decline. Clearly, starting the week with reported cases of the corona virus sparked some of today’s pessimism. Yet if Lo is correct, without the fire element

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

Gold On Fire

January 5, 2020

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


The new decade started on a tear with U.S. equities (led by the NASDAQ 100) making all-time highs yet again, but it backed off by Friday’s close. The retracement was in response to news of President Trump ordering the killing of the Iranian military leader, Qassem Soleimani who was in Baghdad planning new attacks on American interests. Mr. Soleimani is considered a national hero in Iran, and a terrorist by the U.S. and its allies.

Investors: Get Ready for the Year of the Metal Rat

January 19, 2020

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Lord Ganesha rides Mooshika, or rats. Although Indian scripture says he rides mice and not rats. Regardless, there is also supporting literature that claims it is a large Indian rat or a bandicoot rat. Mooshika, or a known pest to farmers and crops, helps Ganesha. As Lord Ganesha is the remover of obstacles, his standing or riding on the rat symbolizes that with the rat’s ability to slither through tiny holes, together they really can

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

This Year's January Trend Trade Even More Critical

December 29, 2019

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


The Dow, the SPY, and the QQQ all hit new all-time highs up another +.75% on average and look frothy. Emerging markets and precious metals broke out of classic chart patterns to the upside and look poised for more. The big question confronting the markets is whether the Federal Reserve and the Central Banks of the world are losing control and the next phase is an inflationary spiral. This, of course, would at some point

Stock Market Feels Like Summer, Looks Like Winter

January 16, 2020

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


The juxtaposition of snow today seems incongruous compared to the hot stock market. The east coast USA, and in the last couple of days the southwest, have had unseasonably warm days. The warmer days along with the climbing market felt right. However today, with another round of new all-time highs, when I stepped outside to snap the photo, I got a chill. Is there a metaphor here between the wintry weather reminder and the overly

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

TSLA Shorts Throwing in the Towel

December 22, 2019

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


Nothing like an impeachment of the President to fuel the markets to new highs. Talking about counter intuitive, Tesla hit also all-time highs and closed out the week over $400, destroying short sellers who have lost billions in one of the most hated stocks by Wall Street pros. The short covering may not be over yet either, as the recent price action could attract even more new buyers once the short-term overbought situation works itself
