Are Consumer Staples Signaling A Volatility Omen?

Will October see a volatility spike? We’ve been trading in extremely low volatility for some time… so this is a fair question.  Especially because one of my favorite ratios (indicators) is flashing caution here.

Apple (AAPL) Stock Chart: Why Bulls Need $151 To Hold

Back in mid-August, I discussed why Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) may be nearing a top. I offered a big picture look at Apple’s chart along with key patterns in play. Time for an update… Since that post, shares of Apple (AAPL) have fallen roughly 9% and on Friday AAPL stock price found support…

U.S. Dollar Index Most Oversold Since 2008

Lots of indecision around the Dollar right now.  I’m honestly in the “I don’t know” camp when it comes to the current major trend in the US Dollar Index (CURRENCY:USD). For instance, did the dollar just finish a multi-year A B C upward correction and is it now headed for…

It’s been some time since I wrote about the Utilities Sector (NYSEARCA:XLU) and stocks. But it’s an important sector to watch from a risk management perspective. It gives investors a good idea of what the climate is like regarding risk (i.e. risk-on / risk-off). In the first chart below, you…

Shares Of IBM Teetering On Major Trend Line Support

IBM (NYSE:IBM) has been a stock on my radar for a long time.  In fact, I wrote about IBM a few times right here on See It Market over the years. Shares of IBM have been declining for months now but the tumble should be of little surprise… especially after…

Is Apple’s Stock Chart (AAPL) Nearing A Major Top?

The last time I wrote about Apple, Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), I correctly surmised that a 4th wave correction (Elliott wave) was occurring.  You can view that post HERE. I also highlighted a potential buy zone, actually looking for $88 as a good buy level for Apple (AAPL) based on the same measured move…
