$BABA’s Little Red Candle


So far the action is fast in Alibaba, in terms of the stock jumping around, but it is not running away higher.

Elsewhere, the rest of the tape is soft, with small caps leading us down.

Back with more analysis in a bit.

It’s Good to Be the King Dollar


Commodities, by and large, remain hands-off for now in terms of my style of trading. The main reason which could explain the weakness of late has been the extreme strength in the U.S. Dollar.

Not only has King Dollar become overbought of late, but it has stubbornly remained so and is pushing higher yet, as you can see on the Dollar ETF below. Until this dynamic changes, and commodities (especially metals) can shrug off Dollar strength, I am not too interested in being a hero in that asset class.

Elsewhere, as we await BABA to start trading YHOO is green bit in a holding pattern of sorts. Also, big-time biotech loser ARNA is turning it around with an apparent vicious short squeeze.

What are you trading this morning?

Late Night Strategy for Friday

Shanghai: night view of elevated highways

We looked at CMGE last night as a long idea in front of the BABA IPO.

Even though the stock was up over 7% on Thursday and may smack of chasing, I believe it is worth another look into Friday for potential pin action.

On the 30-minute chart, below, note the highlighted bull flag formed yesterday afternoon (light blue lines)

If all goes well with BABA, this one may be ripe to break higher yet for another momentum long, if only for a quick trade.

Drop me your top tickers overnight.
