The Best Of ‘See It Market’ – October 2014

Yup, October was a wild month. And we were all over the action… even before it started. Fellow SIM contributor Ryan Detrick’s September 29th post on “Why October May Be A Roller Coaster Ride” gave readers a glimpse of what was to come. And it was all that and more. From the mid-month lows to the end of month highs, the market jumped over 10 percent (in two weeks). If you haven’t

Bank Of Japan Ups The Ante: How Will Europe Respond?

Word of the Bank of Japan’s stimulus spread fast throughout the early morning hours on Friday. And if you didn’t see the news first, it’s more than likely you saw the futures ramp higher, then found the news. The BOJ’s decision to up its annual asset purchase program from $60-$70 trillion Yen to $80 trillion Yen was controversial, receiving confirmation by a narrow 5-4 vote. Either way, though, the BOJ

Citigroup Adjusts Earnings For Legal Costs, Stock Falls

The financials are one sector that I admittedly stay away from. It’s not that they haven’t performed well enough to garner my interest, it’s just that there’s still an unsettled feeling to the group. From rogue traders to manipulation to lawsuits to government involvement, it all just doesn’t suit me.  And Citigroup (C) did a good job of reminding me of this as they announced that they are adjusting their 3Q

Facebook Earnings Beat The Street; Investors Sell The News

Social media has come a long ways. Big players like Facebook (FB), Twitter (TWTR), and LinkedIn (LNKD) dominate the social connecting and networking scene. But if investors reaction to Twitter and Facebook earnings are a sign, perhaps the sector is set for some price consolidation. Tonight Facebook reported strong earnings, beating estimates on the top and bottom line. Mobile growth was a big factor and one would think investors would

Grains Rally Into Fed: Corn Prices At Technical Resistance

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meets today and tomorrow to discuss monetary policy and provide their views on future interest rates. And it seems the Grains sector is tuned in. Select grains such as Corn, Soybeans, and Wheat are rallying today, and have rallied nicely throughout October. But, the sector is at (or nearing) the resistance levels that I wrote about on October 7th. In my opinion, this is one of

Evaluating The Small Caps Rally: What’s Next?

For much of 2014 the Russell 2000 (RUT), which represents small caps stocks, has underperformed. This highlighted a move to safer risk assets, such as large cap stocks. But this underperformance may have reached an extreme when the market bottomed in mid-October. Since bottoming on October 15th, the small caps index has been on fire: it’s been up 6 out of the past 8 days, rallying 7.5% off its intraday

3 Reasons Ford’s Stock (F) Is Worth Watching Right Now

When stocks were peaking into mid September, Ford (F) was already turning lower. And as the equity markets corrected into October, Ford got hammered. Now stocks are bouncing and Ford is having trouble getting its footing. Could a stronger US Dollar be at the heart of Ford’s woes? Perhaps, but more importantly, the stock is nearing a technical crossroads. Below is a weekly chart dating back to 2009. As you can

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
