Critical 5 Days Coming Up for the Bulls

What a wonderful three days it’s been for the bulls since I posted Yet ANOTHER Potential Low last week at the bottom. In fact, it has been one of the most powerful rallies off of a low in history in terms of the number of stocks advancing and declining along with their volume. That gives us a very overbought market in the short-term, but one that just emerging from being very oversold intermediate-term. After such strong thrusts off a bottom, […]   Read More

Yet ANOTHER Potential Low

For the second time in a week, stocks are trying to hammer out at least a trading low. Market action has not been good this whole quarter, but lately it has become so bad that it could be approaching washed out. February’s decline isn’t surprising given that down 5% months like we had in January typically lead to another lower month, but it has been on the ugly side for the bulls. It now looks like the major indices have […]   Read More

Rolling Out the Red Carpet for the Bears

It’s been a rough week for the bulls with Apple taking it on the chin and the Dow Industrials down every day in addition to the last two days of the previous week. Early indications have the bears heading into the weekend with another victory. I want to go back to what now seems like a very prescient post on July 20 titled Trouble Brewing Beneath the Surface. On that day, all of the major indices were at rally highs […]   Read More

Getting Anywhere?

Early Monday I wrote about the market setting up for a bounce. And that was certainly the case on Monday. Tuesday, however, was a different story as stocks gave back all of Monday’s gains and then some. Wednesday’s solid action, once again, puts the stock market on bounce alert. I keep using the word “bounce” instead of rally because it looks like there needs to be some more work on the downside before the current pullback wraps up. With each […]   Read More

Bears Growl as Line in the Sand Breached

As I look back at the titles of the posts this week, I see “Stocks Looking to Rest”, “Bulls Hanging in During Tug O’ War” and “Bears Creeping In”. It was hard not to at least lean to bearish side. Until Thursday although prices were lower, the bulls fought hard. But on Thursday, the flood gates opened with some major league selling in the indices. On the sector front, all were sharply lower with the exception of utilities and precious […]   Read More

Modern Day Cold War?

Geopolitical news now dominates the news cycle with nothing more front and center than the sudden and disturbing turn of events in Ukraine. It’s hard to believe that after spending $51 billion to showcase Sochi and build goodwill throughout the world, Russia has effectively hit the delete button on the whole winter Olympics with aggression in the Crimea. Is an invasion of the Ukraine next? The odds are probably 60-40 in favor. It’s something that really makes you scratch your […]   Read More

2014 Fearless Forecast

It’s really embarrassing that it’s been almost two months since I began speaking about my thoughts for 2014, yet I have been unable to mass distribute them. Shame on me! So far, to those folks who have read them, the comments and questions have been great. Keep them coming! Regular readers of Street$marts and this blog won’t be surprised at most of the forecast, but I did throw in a few new items. As always, I had a lot of […]   Read More
