Dow Theory Non Confirmation Signal: Spring 2012 Repeat?

Dow theory can be a valuable tool to have in your toolkit. Especially if you keep the confirmation and non-confirmation signals in perspective of their given timeframe. On March 2nd, when the markets were near peak levels, I posted a research note on Dow Theory highlighting the weakness in the Dow Jones Transportation Index (DJT). That wasn’t a call for a market top, but rather a call for some caution

Corn Prices Rallying On Dollar Weakness, Wheat Still Sinks

Wednesday was a tough day for the grains, with Corn prices falling over 1 percent and Wheat prices lower by over 4 percent. But this is the tale of two stories. As we have highlighted several times since last fall, Corn has been showing strength, while Wheat and Soybeans have been struggling. And this shows up on the charts. As you can see in the chart below, Corn prices (May ’15)

Volatility Hits Financial Markets As Stocks “Chop”

The market had a rough day yesterday, with recent leadership sectors getting hit hard. The small caps (Russell 2000) was down 2.34%, while the Biotech Index was down 4.14% and the Semiconductors Index down 4.47%. Needless to say, market volatility emerged a winner again. Considering that type of punishment, it will likely take some time to heal the internal damage (i.e. breadth). But there have been visible warning signs that active

S&P 500 Update: Cloudy With A Chance Of Meat-Bulls

Although the S&P 500 is just 1.5% off its all time highs, it’s fair to say that 2015 has been a chop-fest for active investors. And this doesn’t solely apply to the equity markets – it has been choppy for bonds, currencies, and commodities as well. Without regurgitating all the details, it’s also fair to say that investors have had A LOT of noise to deal with. This is the primary

Why Bonds May Be An Important Market ‘Tell’ Next Week

On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve downgraded its economic outlook while at the same time implying that the committee is considering raising rates (they are no longer “patient”, if you will!). So on one hand they acknowledged that the economy isn’t doing so hot, but on the other they said that they are open to raising rates later this year. Yup, some good old fashioned Fed doublespeak. But it worked in

The State Of The Gold Bear Market: Sentiment Sinks

Three and a half years have passed since Gold peaked at $1923.70 per ounce, reminding investors that the other side of exuberance can be painful. The Gold bear market is finally beginning to take the wind out of Gold bugs sails, as a series of fits and starts have lead to a year full of sideways to lower grinding action. And with Gold hitting 1142 yesterday, investors and market onlookers

Tech Stocks Lifted By Apple (AAPL): Market Recap For March 17

The major stock market indices started the day lower as traders showed some jitters heading into the start of the two day Federal Reserve meeting. Note that the meeting ends tomorrow and the markets will get the FOMC statement at 2pm EST, followed by the Fed presser. Back to the market action… stocks managed bounce higher after the early stumble, recovering much of the days losses by the closing bell. The

Investors Shrug Off US Dollar, Fed Concerns: Market Recap For March 16

The financial markets got off to a good start on Monday, seeing the major US stock market indices rise in unison over 1 percent. But even with all the positivity, investors couldn’t escape the reality of “Fed week”. With the Federal Reserve on tap, the noise level has increased to a nearly unbearable level as speculation runs rampant about the Fed’s choice of words (and tweaks) in their upcoming Fed statement. As

German DAX Powers Over 12000: Is European QE Working For All?

The scare in the global equities markets last October marked a pivot point for European equities in particular. Following the low in the German DAX of 8354 in mid-October, the financial markets decided to get serious. The ailing Euro Zone economy was becoming alarming and investors could finally sense a more serious effort to stimulate. Whether that stimulus (now known as European QE) is effective economically remains to be seen (my
