Stock Market Roller Coaster

Today the markets gave traders a ride on a roller coaster ending the day basically where we were at 3 PM ET on Tuesday (see the SPX 15 minute chart below). This price action meant that only stocks that were “marching to the beat of their own drums” made any significant gains.

GRMN was one of those and we made $200 on only 200 shares in just over 90 seconds!

Market Roller Coaster

The S&P futures remain in a very vulnerable position approaching a major Resistance level with the StochasticRSI looking as if it wants to roll over (see the chart below).

Among the major stocks that report earnings on Thursday or Friday are A, CAKE, CAR, NTES, NUVA, SGMS, AN, BIDU, BMRN, COG, FLR, FSLR, INTU, KHC and ROKU.

Deja Vu

The markets continue to grind higher, but the rate of change is markedly slower. In fact, the S&P futures finished with a Doji on Tuesday with the StochasticRSI in the overbought area. Please note that StochasticRSI can stay overbought for longer than we can imagine is possible. (See the S&P futures and SPX charts below).

We still have several major companies left to report earnings. This week we have GRMN, HLF, A, CAKE, CAR, NTES, NUVA, SGMS, AN, BIDU, BMRN, COG, FLR, FSLR, INTU, KHC and ROKU.

What, Me Worry?

The markets continued their inexorable rise towards the November/December swing highs (the Small Caps have already done so) on optimism that a trade deal will get done (see the SPX chart below).

Expiration Friday

The markets are pulling back ahead of the monthly options expiration on Friday. As mentioned in our blog post for Thursday, we cautioned that the T2122 Four Week New High / New Low Ratio chart (see below) was warning us that we should be careful of a pullback at any time. Thursday the pullback began and, so far on Thursday evening the pullback continues. Could are retest of the 2700 level be in our future .

TNDM continues to work higher and we day traded BLMN on its earnings report.

During overnight trading we broke out from the wedge as we expected; however, we moved sharply lower after the Retail Sales numbers disappointed traders. We did have a rally late morning, but it only amounted to a reversion to the mean bounce before moving back towards the lows of the day. (see the S&P futures 30 min chart below)

With the markets in likely Pullback mode, we must continue to be patient and wait for setups to come to us. As we have been saying for a while now, we will continue to focus on earnings stocks and those that are “on their own page”. We are in the last few weeks of Earnings season, but we have several important companies reporting on Friday including: AMAT, BIDU, CBS, CC, DE, NVDA and PEP.

Grinding Higher

The markets continue to grind higher … and we continue to make money. We banked a 50% return on our last TER Call today. Our members also booked profits in stocks such as MDR Short and CERN Long. Two of our trade ideas worked out well today – TRU and MA up $1.20 and $1.63 respectively.

The T2122 4 Week New High / New Low Ratio chart shows the breadth of the market where the number of stocks making new monthly Highs outnumber those making monthly Lows by nearly 9.5 to 1 (see chart below). This indicator warns us to be careful of a pullback at any time.

We will continue to focus on earnings stocks and those that are “on their own page”. We are in the last few weeks of Earnings season, but we have several important companies reporting over the next couple of days including: CSCO, CYBR, IMMU, KO, MGM, NTAP, AMAT, BIDU, DE, NVDA and PEP.

Shutdown Optimism

A number stocks on today’s watchlist performed very well. Among them were BHF, TNDM, LULU, JELD, ALGN, MCHP, MAT and MYL. We took profits in our SYF Calls (+$160, +25%).

The markets gapped up at the Open today and went sideways until 10:45 ET. Then we got another spurt of buying before we leveled off for the rest of the day (see the 15 minute chart below).

What we need now is follow through to confirm the break above the prior swing high (see the S&P futures chart below). The StochasticRSI oscillator is indicating that we may make a run towards the 2800 level.

Indecision

The markets went sideways today but there were still stocks on the move. We sold the the DECK Calls we bought last week for +14% in just 2 trading days. Our members made nice profits in MCHP and CRON. Two of our trade ideas worked out very well today – ARWR and MAT up 8% and 3.3% respectively.

The U.S. futures formed a Doji on Monday after successfully holding the 2675 level on Friday. Meanwhile the StochasticRSI oscillator continues to fall which, with Price holding, I interpret as a Bullish sign (see chart below). I expect the next move higher could come in the next couple of days. As we have said before be patient and wait for your setups.

✅ Our focus continues to be on earnings stocks and those that are “on their own page”. This is just a pullback in an overall Up trend so we will be looking for Bullish setups … at least until the charts tell us differently.

Not Yet Mr. Bear

While the markets were trying to hold on Friday, we had several nice trades including a nice overnight 44% gain in options on CBOE. Our members did very well in names such as CRON, IRBT and SPY. Thanks to our ability to interpret the StochRSI on the Daily and the 4 Week New High / New Low Ratio charts (see charts below) we were well positioned for the expected pullback by taking profits.


U.S. futures formed a Hammer on Friday after approaching the 2675 level that we had been looking for. The StochasticsRSI shows that we may have another couple of days left in the current pullback. Be patient and wait for your setups.

Membership and 30-Day Trial 👉 Click here for more information

✅ As you can see on the 4 Week New High / New Low chart, we remained in the “Pullback Zone” since the 4th of January but made a sharp break lower on Thursday followed by the pause on Friday. Note that the T2122 indicator does not tell us how long nor how deep the pullback will be.

Our focus remains on earnings stocks and those that are “on their own page”. Right now, this is just a pullback in an overall Up trend so we will not be overly aggressive to the short side … at least for now.

Notable Earnings 2/11/2019:

The only Notable earnings on Monday is AVYA; however, we have several tech stocks that report later in the week.

The Bears are Growling

The bears 🐻 are growling – The SPY opened flat on Thursday and meandered above and below the $263 level like a roller coaster for most of the day. SPY closed at $263.62 which is in the upper third of the trading range from $262 to $264.

Despite the markets trading lower on Thursday, we had several nice trades including DECK (+$141 stock trade) and DVN (+$150 options trade). Our members did equally well in names such as CRON and SPY. Thanks to our ability to interpret the StochRSI and 4 Week New High / New Low Ratio charts (see charts below) we were well positioned for the pullback we were expecting by taking profits ahead of today’s trading.


✅ U.S. futures traded sharply lower on Thursday. It looks as if the markets want to at least retreat to the 2675 level and the outlook for the next few days is for lower prices since the StochRSI still has some room to go lower.

Time for a Pause or Pullback?

U.S. futures trade relatively flat this morning after what has been a strong start to the year for the major averages. The S&P is sitting right around the 2700 level that we have been talking about for some time now. The StochasticRSI is suggesting a Pause or Pullback here.

S&P Futures
SPY Hourly Chart

Earnings for the fourth quarter reporting period have generally been better than feared.  This week will feature earnings from Alphabet (GOOG) after today’s close; Disney (DIS) on Tuesday; General Motors GM), Humana (HUM), and Eli Lilly (LLY) on Wednesday; Twitter (TWTR) on Thursday; and Phillips 66 (PSX) on Friday.

On the data front, investors will receive Factory Orders for November (Briefing.com consensus 0.3%) at 10:00 a.m. ET. Investors will also receive auto and truck sales throughout the day.

In U.S. Corporate news:

  • Clorox (CLX 153.50, +3.64): +2.4% after the company beat earnings estimates and reaffirmed FY19 guidance.
  • Bristol-Myers (BMY 51.10, +1.21): +2.4% after news that activist hedge fund Starboard Value is planning to take a stake in the company, according to Bloomberg.
  • ON Semiconductor (ON 21.50, +0.70): +3.4% after the company beat earnings expectations, although guided Q1 revenue below consensus.

The Markets Rise as We Predicted

The S&P 500 gained 0.9% on Thursday, as another batch of better‐than‐feared earnings added to the optimism surrounding U.S.‐China trade relations and a dovish‐minded Federal Reserve. The Nasdaq Composite gained 1.4%, and the Russell 2000 gained 0.8%.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, however, lost 0.1% due in large part to negative price action in Microsoft (MSFT 104.43, ‐1.95, ‐1.8%), Visa (V 135.01, ‐2.59, ‐1.9%), and DowDuPont (DWDP 53.81, ‐5.47, ‐9.2%) following their earnings reports.

The S&P 500 communication services sector was easily the best‐performing group on Thursday, rising 3.7% on the strength of Facebook (FB 166.69, +16.27, +10.8%) and Charter Communications (CHTR 331.05, +41.14, +14.2%). The Utilities (+2.1%) and Consumer Staples (+1.8%) sectors also outperformed the broader market.

SPY Hourly

As mentioned in the blog posts for the last few days, the futures were attempting to hold the 2625 level and they certainly did so. We are now at the 2700 level of Resistance that I mentioned earlier. Will we be able to go higher? The StochasticRSI suggests we may have at least a day or two of upside momentum left.

S&P Futures

Near the close on Thursday, we put on earnings trades in CI and MRK. The goal is to take advantage of the Volatility Crush after earnings. The three trades we put on Tuesday worked out well. By the end of the day, we had banked over $1,100 in profits!

Earnings Trades

We are looking at several earnings stocks on Friday including: SYMC, YUMC, DECK and AMZN that reported after the close on Thursday, plus we will examine stocks that report before the open.

Several other stocks we are either looking at or already in include: GLD, PGR, PHM, JBLU, JBHT, SYF and VMW.

Meandering Ahead of the FOMC

The SPY opened flat on Tuesday, then sold off to just under $263 and meandered either side of that level for the rest of the day. That pattern has been going on since the 19thof January. We have a well-defined trading range between $261.50 and $266.50 (see the chart below).

SPY Hourly chart

As mentioned in the blog posts for the last few days, the futures are attempting to hold the 2625 level; however, if it fails to do so, we are likely to retest 2580. The StochasticRSI is NEAR the lower bounds which I would consider a Bullish sign IF we can put in a Bullish pattern here. To the Up side, the next level of Resistance is 2675/2700.

S&P Futures

Near the close on Tuesday, we put on earnings trades in MCD, HES and T. The goal is to take advantage of the Volatility Crush after earnings. They will only be profitable if the stock remains inside our Upper and Lower bounds.

Top Gun Trading 29 Jan

The SPY gapped down on Monday and meandered between $262 and $264 before closing at $263.78. This is fourth time in the past five days that we have rotated around the $263 level. (See the SPY hourly chart below.) At some point we will break out; however, we do not yet know whether that will be Up or Down but the Inverted H&S and StochasticRSI on the S&P futures suggest the next move is higher.

As mentioned in the Friday pre-market blog post, the futures are attempting to hold the 2625 level; however, if it fails to do so, we are likely to retest 2580. The StochasticsRSI is NEAR the lower bounds which I would consider a Bullish sign IF we can put in a Bullish pattern here. To the Up side, the next level of Resistance is 2675.

LRCX Trade – 24 Jan

LRCX reported earnings on Wednesday after the market close and gapped up approximately 8%. Our expectation was for a to move to at least the Resistance level of $158.50. We monitored the movements and went Long using the Feb $150 Calls.

We peeled off 1 contract after a move of 40% and exited when the Price of the stock touched the first area of Resistance around $158.50.

Eventually the stock ran to the higher Resistance level, but we were content with our profits taking our “50% out of the middle”.

Top Gun Trading – 24 Jan

The markets gapped higher at the open on Wednesday, but quickly gave it all back then rapidly fell to the $263 level where it paused before resuming the downward trajectory. As we did on Tuesday, we went as low as $261 before rallying to close just above $263.

The S&P futures (/ES) are trading flat in the pre-market falling after the weekly jobs report came out. The futures are attempting to hold the 2625 level; however, if it fails to do so, we are likely to retest 2580. The StochasticsRSI is dropping towards the lower bounds while Price is holding which I consider a Bullish sign. (See the chart below.)

We are looking at several earnings stocks today including:  XLNX, LRCX, STM, LVS, CTXS and MKC.
