Serious Business


We saw another gap down this morning, with dip-buyers giving it a try for a red-to-green reversal as we speak.

Small caps are outperforming again, albeit still in the red. And Netflix is getting just as decimated as it was last night.

I am still sitting in just about all cash, with no equity longs or shorts. If bulls lose they grip on the bounce today I may make a move with a cowboy short or two, pressing for a crash.

Otherwise, we have a sloppy bounce attempt on our hands where cash and patience are kings.

Stay cool and don’t let this market put you on tilt.

Quick Bounce Plays

If you are looking for some (quick) support buys here, a good algorithm screen to have, courtesy of The PPT, is one I made called “12631 Quick Bounce Plays.”

In the screen, I am looking to isolate stocks with positive daily Hybrid PPT scores, but negative weekly ones.

Thus, they are ripe for a quick bounce as the momentum seems to be turning, if only for a bit. I also screen for PPT Relative Strength scores, as well as volume and % from 50 day moving average.

Here are the readings as of Wednesday’s close. Remember, we are talking about short-term flips here, not high quality, multi-week swings. Keep those stop-losses in place.

Late Night Strategy for Thursday


With futures pointing to a bounce, it will be interesting to see if bulls can finally pull off the snapback rally which many have been anticipating for weeks now.

Should the S&P 500 Index lose the midpoint of Wednesday’s range, though, below 1847 or so, I expect to see another round of panicky selling as dip-buyers find themselves trapped. If that does not happen, I assume we are in bounce-back mode for a few days before I will consider fresh short entries.

A few stocks which held up well during the correction: AGIO ALNY PANW PCRX ZOES.

Market Looks in the Abyss


“Bud… Bud I like you. Just remember something. Man looks in the abyss, there’s nothing staring back at him. At that moment, man finds his character. And that is what keeps him out of the abyss…”

The market looked in the abyss today and found some buyers at the lows.

Good enough for a tradable bounce? Or another trap?

Stick around for my video market recap after the bell for more analysis.
