Double Breakout Here Would Be Good News For Bulls

Over the past several weeks, select cyclical sectors have started to perk up.  From Industrials to Transports to Financials to Materials, all have seen strength. This is good news for investors, as this could signal a fresh leg higher for stocks. Today, I’d like to zoom in on the Financials…

Tesla Stock (TSLA) Update: Can Bulls Keep The Uptrend Alive?

Editor’s note:  There is a typo in the 2nd paragraph:  July 23 should read June 23. Shares of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) have been screaming higher in 2017.  But a recent 2-week swoon has Tesla stock bulls suddenly on their heels. On July 23, Tesla (TSLA) hit an all-time high of 386.99….

Nasdaq 100 Takes A Breather… Opportunity For Small Caps?

Large cap tech stocks have been a strong leadership force for the stock market for several years. Moreover, the Nasdaq 100 has outperformed the broader market, and more specifically the Russell 2000 in 2017. Is that dynamic changing? The chart below takes a closer look at large cap tech and…

Chart Spotlight: Gold / U.S. Dollar Ratio Near BIG Level

Gold bugs are beginning to stir, and for good reason. 2017 has seen domestic and geo-political tensions escalate along with a pullback in the U.S. Dollar. BUT, gold prices have yet to record a convincing breakout and still remain in a bear market. Below is a chart that gold bugs and gold…

Inflation Pressure? Here’s What The Market Is Saying

As the economy shows signs of life, and the Federal Reserve hints at raising interest rates, market participants continue to debate whether or not inflation is, or will be, a factor. So is inflation right around the corner? One primary indicator of inflation that I follow is saying “not so fast?.  The…

Are Junk Bonds (JNK) Sending A Bullish Message To Stocks?

There are several popular indicators that investors use to gauge the health of the stock market. One that I like to follow is the SPDR Junk Bonds ETF (NYSEARCA:JNK).  This index provides insight into the current appetite of investors (i.e. “risk-on” or “risk-off”). For instance, stocks and the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) typically do…

Currency Market “Shift” At Play? US Dollar Breaking Key Support

The US Dollar (CURRENCY:USD) has shown strength versus the Euro (CURRENCY:EUR) since 2008, with the “meat” of that strength coming in the last 3 to 4 years. This strength worked as a headwind for precious metals, emerging markets, and at times, the domestic economy. But that market dynamic is at a crossroads… and may…

Treasury Bonds: Will This Triple Bottom Prove Bullish?

Treasury bonds have underperformed other major asset classes since topping last summer.  But the 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (NASDAQ:TLT) may be finding some footing. That is, IF the chart pattern show below is confirmed. I shared the chart below last Wednesday. And, as you can see, bonds (via TLT) are…

Trading Spotlight: Junior Gold Miners (GDXJ) Rally

The Junior Gold Miners ETF (NYSEARCA:GDXJ) have taken their lumps over the past 3 months. The ride has been volatile and included a couple of steep declines. The most recent decline comes on the heels of a drop in gold prices (NYSEARCA:GLD). Note that the senior gold miners (NYSEARCA:GDX) didn’t…
