Bitcoin Bounces As Bulls Look To Regain Momentum

Bitcoin peaked earlier this month around $4,950… but last week was brutal for short-term bull traders. A slight slip in early September gave way to a slide into mid-September as Bitcoin (CURRENCY:BTC) fell briefly by nearly 40% (peak to recent tough), briefly touching just under $3,000 on Friday. So today’s…

Gold / U.S. Dollar Ratio Racing To A Near-Term Peak?

Two of 2017’s major investing themes thus far are the return of Gold (NYSEARCA:GLD) and the prolonged weakness in the U.S. Dollar (CURRENCY:USD). Year-to-date, Gold is up 15.72% while the U.S. Dollar is down 9.57%.  This follows a multi-year decline in Gold and a multi-year rise in the Dollar. The…

Key Inflation Gauge Testing Merits Of Reflation Theme

Back in June, we took a look at a key inflation gauge and pointed out why the reflation theme wasn’t quite ready for primetime just yet. The inflation gauge that I like to follow is a ratio of Treasury Inflation Protected Securities ETF (NYSEARCA:TIP) to the 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF…

Stocks-Bonds Ratio Testing Critical Support Level!

As the stock market takes a breather, it’s worth noting that an important market indicator is at a critical juncture.  With the S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) pulling back a few percent off the highs, a critical stocks-bonds ratio is testing trend line support. And if that support breaks, it could mean…

Will Seasonal Stock Market Weakness Spell Trouble For Bulls?

It’s mid-August and it’s worth noting that the stock market has historically struggled this time of year. The chart above looks at the average seasonal performance of the S&P 500 Index (INDEXSP:.INX) during the month of August over the past 10 and 20 years. Will S&P 500 Seasonal Weakness Offer…

Amazon (AMZN) Bulls Stung By Nasty Bearish Reversal

To be clear, Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) has been a top stock for several years.  It’s in a bull market uptrend and that remains in tact. BUT, caution is advised over the near to intermediate term after a nasty bearish price reversal last month (and into last week). This reversal was one…

Emerging Markets and U.S. Dollar At Important Crossroads!

The Emerging Markets (NYSEARCA:EEM) have long benefited from a weaker US Dollar (CURRENCY:USD). This makes sense as a majority of the world’s debt is issued in US Dollars and commodities, a key export of Emerging Markets, tend to receive a tailwind when the buck is headed lower. The heyday of the…

China ETF (FXI) Update: Breakout Points To Higher Prices

Back in 2015, the China ETF (NYSEARCA:FXI) was in free-fall.  Investors were wondering when the China stock crash would end and if it would spread to other markets. Well, thankfully it did end.  And during that period of free-fall, it left an unfilled open gap on its price chart. And…

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….
