Crude Oil And Energy Stocks May Need To Refuel

West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil (WTI) has run into a couple pieces of resistance and is likely to see a decent pullback here. We have seen a measured move higher in oil prices based on the size of the completed double bottom up to the low/mid $40’s. The declining 200-day…

Gold Rally Update: Be Careful With The Yellow Metal Here

Early this year, I postured that 2016 could see some mean reversion in the beaten and downtrodden stocks and sectors. Well, that has happened with a bang. And certainly, a bigger bang than I expected. This article takes a look at gold and the current gold rally from a technical…

S&P 500 Weekly Update: Why $SPX 2000 Is So Important

The stock market remains fairly volatile with most of the price gyrations to the upside of late. As I have written many times, intermediate- to long-term market tops and bottoms are volatile affairs. It’s a battle between bulls and bears, weak hands and strong hands, and the accumulators and distributors….

S&P 500 Technical Update: Holy Upside Reversal Batman!

The last week in the stock market reminds me of the original Batman series that I watched everyday after school. WHAMM! RIP! KERPLOP! BANG! You know what I’m talking about if you were born in the 50’s or the 60’s. The bulls went RIP! And the bears went KERPLOP! Well,…

SP 500 Update: What’s Next After Bulls Make Another Stand?

The S&P 500 bounced hard off the 1,812 chart support area and bears have yet to seal the deal. Based on the current S&P futures activity (+27 at the time of my writing) the “500” is approaching trendline resistance in the 1,895 zone. There are many potential areas of interest on…

Stock Market Bears Driving Deep into Bulls Territory

Once again, the bears have the ball, 1st and goal from the 1 yard line. And, yes, we’ve seen this quite a bit in recent months with market bulls making many goal line stands. The bears have tried too many trick plays in this position, and it’s time to take it right up…

This Week’s Stock Market Outlook: Is A Bear Rally Underway?

Talk about a roller coaster ride for investors. This past week was nothing short of exasperating for the masses. The S&P 500 fell 1.6% on Monday, rallied 1.4% on Tuesday, and then dropped 1.1% on Wednesday after what looked like a very nice breakout in the morning. Thursday was dicey before firming…

Will Warning Signs Spur Bear Market For Stocks In 2016?

The Bear is Growling: Will All Those 2015 Technical Warnings Finally Spur A Bear Market? I have been writing technical stock market commentary for a long time, first as technical market strategist, and second as a newsletter writer. Really no difference except the pay. LOL. One comment I have heard over…

Stock Market Capitulation Here? What To Watch For

After yesterday’s reversal and sharp decline, we could be in the stock market capitulation phase of this decline both from a price and sentiment perspective. The S&P 500 Index is quickly approaching August/September lows in 1,867/1,872 region. And volume has been consistently heavy as bulls appear to be throwing in the…

Russell 2000 Update: Small Caps Better Right The Ship Soon

The Russell 2000 got obliterated last week, plunging 8 percent. Since the June 23 all-time high, the small caps index has cratered 19.3%.  It’s extremely oversold and has many investors wondering about the extreme weakness in small caps stocks. Furthermore, the small caps index is at the same level that…
