Is The 10 Year Treasury Yield Set To Go Higher?

After bottoming on January 30th, the 10 Year Treasury Yield (TNX) rallied sharply along side equities for much of February before pausing into March. That rally was set up by an RSI divergence and an undercut of the lows. The recent pause following the rally has taken the shape of a classic consolidation “handle”.  But with the February NFP Jobs Report coming on Friday, that could be too “easy”. So how

NASDAQ 5000: A Look At The 2000 Market Top vs 2015

If we turn back the clock to the year 2000, investors were frothing over fruitless tech companies with outsized price to earnings ratios (P/Es). I remember watching the NASDAQ tick higher and hearing speculative talk throughout 1999, with conversations firmly centered around the next “possibility”. The NASDAQ market top in March of 2000 was all about that fervent belief in, and giddiness about, “possibility”. Investors thought they could get rich in a

Dow Theory In Focus: Will Transports Confirm Industrials Highs?

As the markets push higher, investors tend to become more wary by nature. This often leads to the markets climbing the proverbial “wall of worry” and several investors missing out on the opportunity of higher prices. Will March offer more of the same? Or could the markets have something else in store for active investors. One of the many near-term indicators I am watching pertains to Dow theory. And more precisely,

Corn Prices Holding Steady In Face Of Higher Dollar

For the past 6 months, I’ve been constructive on Corn prices. And last winter, it separated itself from the other grains by rallying in the face of a stronger US Dollar. This past week was like a fractal of late last year, with spot Corn prices up 1.55%. Other grains were up as well, with Soybeans jumping 2.9% and Wheat 0.3%. But Corn has stood out as the leader of this pack. Both

Trading In The Information Age: Adjusting To “Quick Fix” Markets

Our society seemingly has given way to shorter time frames. We simply revel in looking at the next minute rather than “tomorrow”. In this fast-paced Information Age, we all want a little bit of instant gratification… and we want it sooner than now. I could digress into other areas of life as we know it, but that’s a broader societal question. What I want to write about is how our behavioral need for a

Global Equities Rise As Investor Fears Take A Back Seat

As we look around the globe, we are seeing stronger global equities markets that have benefitted from what investors perceive to be a safer playing field. And this has shown up in lower bonds and gold prices, and a falling Volatility Index (VIX). The net result: The S&P 500 is up nearly 6 percent for February, on pace for it’s best February showing since 1998. Note that this post went out to our email

Market Set To Test Major S&P 500 Fibonacci Extension Level

Last week, investors watched the S&P 500 grind higher, pushing the index into unchartered territory: the land of all time highs. And with the major stock market indices pushing higher in unison, it has many wondering what will stop this bull? Well, there are a few levels to watch over the near-term, and especially for traders. And each has to do with S&P 500 fibonacci extension levels. However, one is a

Why Home Depot’s Stock Has Been So Strong

Although the US economic recovery has been anything but vibrant, there are plenty of fundamental reasons to give for the recent strength in Home Depot’s stock price. Think lower gas prices, lower interest rates, stable housing, stable unemployment… and better earnings and growth. Even the most frugal will spend some money to update their house (especially if they are doing it themselves). But I’m also a believer that the fundamentals

The Anatomy Of A Trader: Holding True To Your Trading Time Frames

The past 5 months have been fairly volatile. The market swings up and down have been swift and momentous, highlighting the many twists and turns of investor emotions and sentiment during a time of consolidation (and uncertainty). It’s during these periods that we learn a lot about ourselves as traders. We either follow our plans or risk compromising who we are as traders… and that has consequences that go beyond dollar signs.

Gold Ends Higher: Will GLD Reversal Set Up A Tradable Rally?

Gold futures dropped sharply this morning, hitting a low of 1197 and taking the Gold ETF (GLD) down with it. In the process, GLD broke through a backtest support line. By all accounts, this looked like a continuation day to the downside. BUT, something interesting happened: there was a big GLD reversal. And this reversal could setup a tradable rally. So what set up this GLD reversal and what do we
