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

Why The US Dollar Rally May Stall Out In October

The US Dollar has been on a tear lately. It’s set to close higher for the third month in a row. And not just marginally higher: the past three months have seen the US Dollar Index surge from sub-80 to nearly 86. No doubt this is strong action, and may very well be the beginnings of a longer-term trend change. But October has been a tough month for the Dollar

Why Apple (AAPL) Flatlined After iPhone 6 Announcement

If you’re an active investor, you likely understand that participants are constantly attempting to price in what they know or believe they know about the market or a given security. The latter often leads to speculation – see Yahoo (YHOO) or Alibaba (BABA) – but the larger point here is that markets are forward looking. This logic was on display with the recent Apple (AAPL) product launch. Please note that this example has more to do

S&P 500 Technical Update: Lower Support Levels in Focus

The price action in the equity markets over the past few days has been choppy, to say the least. The S&P 500 (SPX) is trading sharply lower today, and this comes on the heels of yesterday’s relief rally – a rally that had some traders feeling bullish again. So, now what? Well, as a firm believer in technical and intermarket analysis, I think active investors should be aware of key S&P 500

Emerging Markets Update: EEM, BRICs Nearing Critical Juncture

Well, that didn’t take long. In just under 6 weeks, the Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) has corrected nearly 6 percent. Today alone, EEM declined 1.52%. A stronger dollar, Russian sanctions, and worries about global growth (i.e. the Euro zone) have likely played a role in stalling the Emerging Markets rally. To be fair, though, the pullback is still within the bounds of what might be expected after rallying nearly 25 percent

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
