Investors Panic As Volatility Spikes: What’s Next For Stocks?

It’s been over 2 years since investors experienced a day like Wednesday. The steady stream of measured selling finally gave way to a bit of fear and capitulation as investors were forced to make decisions in the face of market volatility that felt crashy. At one point, the S&P 500 was down over 3 percent. It was the perfect series of events for an uncertain market: A gap lower that looked

5 Stock Charts Calling The Shots: F, HD, KO, TWTR, GPRO

During bull or bear markets, it’s always important to be on the lookout for changes in market behavior. For instance, when market pullbacks are consistently bought at 2 to 4 percent declines, it becomes worrisome when we the markets dip deeper. Or when leaders and momentum stocks get sold and defensive stocks get a bid. These examples are apparent in the current stock market decline and are a representative mix of what

Fear Gauges Rise: Is Investor Capitulation On The Horizon?

Last week reminded investors just how quickly volatility can make a come back. And just how uncomfortable it can be. After a big down day Tuesday, the markets recovered with an even bigger up day on Wednesday. But this was nothing more than a bull trap, as the bears pounded the market lower Thursday and Friday. And, at the time of this writing, the S&P 500 futures are indicating more discomfort for

Will Icahn’s ‘Half Price’ Approach Boost Apple Stock?

Apple has been accumulating cash for several years now. And Carl Icahn has been accumulating Apple stock for several months. And Icahn wants Apple to dig deeper into their cash pile and buy back more stock. This isn’t news to Apple (AAPL) shareholders. If anything, antics like Icahn’s “Half Price” letter to Tim Cook have helped bolster Apple stock. Just look at Apple’s share price since he announced his position in

Corn vs US Dollar: Chart of the Day

Many are aware of the the recent US Dollar strength. As well, many are aware of the weakness in commodities. After all, strong moves in the US Dollar (up or down) tend to effect commodity prices. Take Corn prices for example. Let’s just say the recent run higher in the buck has hit Corn pretty hard. Or at least this chart says so: Couple the strong buck with a bumper

S&P 500 Technical Support Update: Levels And Breadth

The past two months have seen several developments take shape that remind me of the February sell-off. I’m not saying that this pullback will unfold the same way, but I do think that issues with small caps and emerging markets (a good risk gauge), coupled with poor market breadth have once again played a role in taking the S&P 500 (SPX) lower. How much lower? No one knows for sure, which is

Grain Sector Rebounds: Corn, Wheat Prices Surge

Several headwinds, including a stronger US Dollar and a bumper global crop have hit the grain sector over the past several months. Take Corn for example. Corn for December delivery fell almost $2.00/bushel from May to October, seeing prices hit a low of $3.20/bushel last week. And similar downdrafts hit Wheat and Soybeans as well. In fact, Cargill, Inc. said that profits dropped 26% in the latest quarter as their grains

The Best Of See It Market – September 2014

September saw the S&P 500 fall 1.77 percent… But that doesn’t come close to telling the whole story. Several assets traded to extremes and market breadth weakened throughout the month. To recap, here are a few things that dominated the headlines, and our contributors research posts on See It Market: The US Dollar – The Dollar surged 4 precent in September, causing disruptions across asset classes. A stronger buck put

Twitter Upgraded To Overweight, Stock Battles Resistance

Earlier today, JP Morgan analyst Doug Anmuth upgraded Twitter (TWTR) to an overweight rating, raising his price target to $64/share. This was enough to buoy the stock price amidst a sea of red in the Tech sector. But perhaps even more important than the Twitter upgrade this morning is the developing technical setup on the TWTR stock chart. The move higher this morning saw the stock fall short of eclipsing a critical resistance level

Emerging Markets Fall Sharply In September to Un-Remember

September wasn’t kind to the Emerging Markets (EEM). After ripping higher throughout much of the summer, EEM has been punished by what appears to be a shift in capital flows, as the US Dollar has risen smartly while US Equities have held up pretty well. All told, investors watched the Emerging Markets fall 7.77 percent in September. That’s pretty unreal considering that was the performance for a single month. And although
