Chart Of The Day: US Dollar Strength Slows Emerging Markets

By now, most market participants have taken note of the US Dollar rally. In the early stages of the rally, it was simply a slow rise. However, that has given way to a rapid accent, seeing the US Dollar Index jump from below 80 to 84.75 in just over two months. And the recent surge higher in the Dollar seems to be adding some volatility to the Emerging Markets complex. In the

Nasdaq 100 Breakout: Watch That Retest

Over the past few months, I’ve written several pieces on the Nasdaq 100′s outperformance and leadership position. And just last month, I wrote about the Nasdaq 100 breakout above 4000. That breakout helped lead the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 to new highs. But lost in all the excitement is the technical understanding that most breakouts get tested… whether it be sooner or later (from my post on 8/19): Now before

Traders: Stay Focused, Tune Out The Noise

No doubt, the tension on the tape is real. Stocks are attempting to consolidate near the highs (some indices better than others) with the Fed, Alibaba IPO, and the Scotland independence vote forthcoming. With all this in toe, social media is abuzz  about how it’s all going to go down. Needless to say, this likely isn’t the week to be making huge bets based on emotion. And it’s also not

Emerging Markets (EEM) Underperformance: Charts In Focus

The Emerging Markets sector has been a tricky play for active investors. 3 failed rallies in 3 years has left many with a poor taste in their mouths. And once again, the rally is on. Is it for real this time? The Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) has put together a strong rally out of the February bottom and is currently attempting to breakout above key resistance. But EEM has a few issues to

Twitter (TWTR) Strong On Debt Offering; Key Fibs Loom

Last week, Twitter (TWTR) announced that it had raised $1.8 Billion in a convertible note offering. This sent the stock higher and gave it some support throughout the week. Twitter closed the week up 2.8%, a very strong performance considering the equity markets were down for the week. By all accounts, Twitter is striking while rates are still low. But regardless of the merits of the deal, I found one technical nugget

AAPL Announcement: iPhone 6, Apple Watch Priced Into Stock?

As with all Apple (AAPL) announcements and new product launches, the hype and speculation was at fever pitch heading into the September 9 unveiling of the new iPhone 6 and Apple Watch. This can be seen best through the eyes of investors. In the hours leading up to the AAPL announcement, the stock was wound as tight as a drum, trading in a one dollar range for most of Friday

ECB Cuts Rates, Provides Further Stimulus

Mario Draghi and the European Central Bank (ECB) had a tall order this morning. Several indicators over recent months have highlighted the Euro Zone’s struggles to spur economic growth. And, although the market was expecting The ECB to act, it was a bit uncertain about the course action. Well, a triple rate cut and new stimulus program gave the market a shot of juice. And then some. Check out the chart below

The Best Of See It Market – August 2014

After finishing off yet another shallow pullback in early August, the S&P 500 spent the better part of the month marching higher. In fact, by the end of the month, the S&P 500 had recovered its entire pullback, recording new all-time highs into month end. Volume has been very light, but that should change as investors return from vacation and transition out of a summertime mindset. September will also bring

QQQ Breakout Analysis: RSIs, Retests, and Targets

Tech stocks have played a major role in leading the broader market higher in 2014. Especially of late. Consider this: The Nasdaq Composite was the first major index to break out to near 2014 highs after the summer pullback. Soon thereafter, the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrials confirmed the breakout, making new highs as well. Today I’d like to focus on the popular Nasdaq 100 ETF, the Powershares QQQ Trust (QQQ) and the recent

Parsing The FOMC Minutes: Why A Rate Hike May Be Coming In 1H 2015

Earlier today, the Federal Reserve released the minutes from their last meeting, sending the market into its typical tizzy. Initially the market was down on rate hike concerns, but moments later it was up on an expanding economy and improving labor market. Yep, Mr. Market is going to do what he’s going to do and let everyone else spin it for what they think is going on. But behind the speculation,
