This All Has A Familiar Ring To It

The recent new highs on the Nasdaq accompanying the surge off the August and September lows have been accompanied by bullish headlines, and it is true the action in some stocks is truly awe inspiring. Yet all the action has an oddly familiar ring to it and it may not be bullish. While most traders today haven't really lived through the 2000 bubble, older hats have institutional memory.

Gold & Silver Slammed As Dollar Soars - 9th Down Day In A Row

As the USDollar surges ahead this morning - crushing the hopes and hupes of corporate earnings in America - so precious metals are being battered once again. Silver is now down for the 9th consecutive day - the longest streak in 8 months; and Gold is down again (after a brief reprieve yesterday) to its lowest levels in 3 months.

US Equities' "Impressive Rebound" Is Hollow Inside

If one looks at the NDX alone, one would have to conclude that the bull market is perfectly intact. The same is true of selected sub-sectors, but more and more sectors or stocks within sectors are waving good-bye to the rally. Even NDX and Nasdaq Composite have begun to diverge of late, underscoring the extreme concentration in big cap names. Naturally, divergences can be “repaired”, and internals can always improve. The reality is however that we have been able to observe weakening internals and negative divergences for a very long time by now, and they sure haven’t improved so far. In terms of probabilities, history suggests that it is more likely that the big caps will eventually succumb as well.

Nasdaq 100 Facing Key Challenge For Stock Rally

The ability of the Nasdaq 100 to overcome nearby resistance would be one of the first price-based signs that the current stock rally may be more than just a mean-reversion bounce.

Gold & Gold Stocks - How To Recognize An Emerging Bull Market

We can however state with confidence that the bubble will eventually burst and that the greatest monetary policy experiment of the post WW2 era will fail – in all likelihood quite spectacularly. So we have every reason to remain long term bullish on gold and gold-related investments. Moreover, by looking closely at past lows of significance we have hopefully been able to provide a bit of a road map in case the recent low does indeed represent a major pivot point.

The Massive Energy Top

My favorite sector to short  is (once again) energy, as giants like Exxon are exhibiting topping patterns that strike me as once-a-generation opportunities.

Dollar Struggles; More Losses Likely Before Better Demand is Found

Gains in the foreign currencies appears to be mostly short-covering rather than bottom-picking per se.  In bigger picture the dollar is consolidating its earlier gains.

The Stock Market Rally... To Nowhere

"...the markets did retest the late August lows, and when combined with the very oversold conditions, led to a frantic 'short covering' rally back to previous resistance. It is worth noting that the recent market action is very similar to that of the August decline and initial rebound as well... . If the market is still confined within a more "bearish" trend, the current rally, like the ones that preceded it, will be a "rally to nowhere."

U.S. Stocks Face Their Biggest Test In 8 Years

We don’t label many spots on U.S. equity charts as “make or break” for the broad market. However, the mid-430?s area on the Value Line Geometric Composite is as critical a level as we can give you in any index or security.

The Bull/Bear 'High Stakes Poker' Game Is Down To The Final Table

High stakes poker, winner takes all. Traders better have their trade plans ready: The next 3 weeks will likely determine whether we enter a lengthy bear market or whether bulls can use coming positive seasonality to avert a major market break one more time. As the following charts show, by the end of October we shall have confirmation one way or the other...

Game Over

The game is over. The trend has changed. And the Fed knows it. The question is: What will it do about it? Roll-over or fight? But will it matter much if it fights? Janet Yellen clearly lost the crowd this week as “accommodative” was met with a resounding SELL as confidence has been shaken. Her job is now to win back confidence. Whether she can or not is now largely determined how the binary set-up we face here plays out. Bottom line: Bulls need a 1998 like repeat to save this year. How did the Fed manage the big correction in the Fall of 1998: It cut rates of course...Well, good luck with that this year.

Is It A Correction Or A Bear Market?

There's a debate in professional circles as to whether the stock market is in a correction or a bear market. It makes a difference...

Why This Time Could Be Different

From both and fundamental and technical viewpoint, there is mounting evidence that the current decline might just be sending a signal that there is more going on here than just an "overdue correction in a bull market." While it is too soon to know for sure, there seems to be little risk in being more conservative within portfolio allocations currently until the market environment clears. However, the proverbial "elephant" is margin debt.

Forget The Dips, Sell The Rips

So now comes the era of gluts, shrinking profits and a drastic deflation of the giant financial bubble that the world’s central banks have so foolishly generated. And this time they will be powerless to stop the carnage. Yet the beleaguered central bankers will launch desperate verbal and market manipulation ploys to brake the current sell-off and thereby preserve the bloodied remnants of their handiwork.  When in response the gamblers make their eighth run at buying a dip that is now rapidly turning into a crater, it will be an excellent time to sell anything in the casino that isn’t nailed down.
