No Gifts For Me

569 views

In typical 2014 fashion, it’s only right the we end the year with a rally that begins with a gap up. If you’re waiting for an entry, don’t expect tomorrow to be it, because we will likely gap again. This is how it plays out, the only way to catch the big moves in the last half of this year have been to hold longs overnight.

I’m in all cash here, so no gifts for me. I did not believe in Santa and now he has simply passed my house. Although, the correct move is likely to buy into this, I simply cannot.

$TAN, the solar ETF, leads the way this morning with shorts getting obliterated. $OIH & XME are right behind, and of course IBB, the biotech ETF. Biotech has lead the way all year, and has been a monster call by Mr Option Addict. Here’s a look at the top industries of the day:

Trade Ideas For Thursday

729 views

CYBR – Look for the security plays to gain traction tomorrow in light of Sony folding to hackers. This one looks ready to run on strength.

YHOO – I like the pattern setting up here for Yahoo, a little strength should get this one above the 20 day which should force a few shorts to cover.

GLUU – Love how price is flagging right underneath the 50 day. This normally produces a powerful move once price trade above the average. Keep it on watch here:

IDRA – This one is a potential monster in the marking, watch for continuation above Wednesday’s high, 3.94:

The Cajun Contrainan

583 views

The market is saved once again. The bulls can thank me for the balderdash post yesterday as it will clearly mark the bottom. It looks like the market likes the word Patient, and Santa is well on his way. You guys can continue to fade The Cajun, because it is working.

So far today I took profits on my $APA trade and have yet to put anything new on the books. I’m eyeing $GPRO again here sub $60, and like the idea of getting long $KORS here.

Here’s a look at some of the top individual hybrid movers on the day. $BABA is of interest, as is $AKS. For a lotto play check out $APP:

I’m off to a doctors appointment to try to fix this shoulder. I will miss the final hour, but be back tonight with a few ideas for tomorrow.

Good luck guys.

Oil & Gas Continue To Lead

415 views

Oil & gas continue to lead here with the OIH being one of the leading ETFs this morning. $HAL is of interest to me down here, and I personally remain bullish on $APA, a position of mine, despite the downgrade. Coal is also seeing some strength via $KOL, with $BTU being best in show. $CLF on the other hand is in trouble, down over 10% today.

Here’s a look at the top industries this morning:

I have a doctor’s appointment at 3pm ET, so will miss the final, most important hour today. My activity will remain light in front of the Fed.

We Are Going To Crash

1,217 views

Going through my charts tonight, I would not put the risk for a crash off the table here. I’m very heavy in cash in just about all of my accounts, yes even my IRA. I don’t like the action at all and it has somewhat of a 2011 feel to it.

First we watched the leaders get smoked, then the violent indecision from the indicies, couple that with Russia forex and oil games, and we have room for concern.

I can’t wait to see what Janet Yellen has to say about this current situation, there is nothing she can do to save us. We are going to crash.

Hope you guys get a good night of sleep, I know I will. I want to be up early, popcorn in hand, and watch the firework show from my Mac with Retina display.

I’m looking forward to it. 

I Am Unimpressed

654 views

Energy was indeed the place to be today, but given the price action in the overall market, I am unimpressed. We have Fed speak tomorrow which will likely be a market mover, so don’t expect volatility to disappear in the short term.

Our top hybrid movers on the day remain in the energy space, with names like $BAS & $APA exploding from oversold levels. I am excited about the opportunity to come in the space as patterns set up and give us high probability trade setups. Here’s a look at the top movers on the day:

Other than the energy space, nothing excites me here. $AA stopped me out for a loss today, and my watchlist remains thin pickens. I will continue to search for the next trade, but for the most part am content slowing down into year’s end. Here’s a list of movers today for those that feel like going through charts: CLICK HERE.
