Yet the sellers can’t gain traction. Every attempt at sending price lower to fill the gap below stalls out. The sell orders are pressuring the bid this afternoon in the S&P minis but not achieving any progress. All of this pressure building up has to go somewhere.
Meanwhile, with the help of The PPT I found some shorts in ENPH and squeezed’em pretty well today. I scaled some profits, but left ½ the position on in case the pain trade continues. The weekly chart suggests it could.
I hopped on board Zillow today after the impressive Pending Home Sales Index, which crushed expectations. I hate when a house goes pending, BTW. When I was about 9 months into my hunt and houses would go pending in less than 3 days listed, I would chastise my real estate agent and damn the illiquidity of homes. This chart looks mint and I want it to keep looking mint so I can size it up. For now, I’m ½ size.
These F shares are working out, up around 4 percent since my entry. So far, we’re looking at a v-shape bounce in a big consumer discretionary. The same goes for TPX. This is like the housing trifecta: Z, F, TPX. You find the house, you buy the car, you buy the bed.
We’ve been trend up all week, which SHOMP-wise makes sense, but for all other intents and purposes seems odd. Now the questions becomes, do we run into the 4th of July? If we do, I want to be in patriotic names, like F.
I’m still in FB, did you know that? I’ve ridden through the trough, and now things are looking really good. This also fits the suburban lifestyle, shack up and talk politics with your delusional relatives. Note: I don’t do FB.
Anyhow, I’m 35 percent cash and long the following names. I’ve bolded my favorites and they’re listed by size, largest to smallest:
AAPL (fml), F, FB, SODA, YGE, Z, IMMR, CREE, TPX, ENPH, and ZIONComments »
