Infrastructure Stocks Take a Hit
Chris Brecher - February 24, 2017
Infrastructure Stocks Take a Hit
Rumors that an infrastructure bill won't be introduced till 2018 hit the leaders of this rally as X, NUE, CAT, and VMC sustained big losses. But overall, the markets held up, led by the financials. . . .

Fed Minutes Fail To Move Markets
Fed minutes that worried about a lack of overall volatility failed to dent most markets today. The only underpeformers were the Transports and the /TF, both of which get hurt from a tightening in rates. . . .

Promise of A Tax Deal Propels the Market
A Tweet From the Oval Office Promising a Tax Cut in the next few weeks was all it took to send most markets to new highs. I still think the play is the good looking charts of the small caps, and they keep rewarding us. . . .

Another Noon Balloon

Another Noon Balloon
After another early morning sell-off, the market started "expanding" around lunchtime, led by the FANG stocks and the banks. 4 days this week, the overall market did exactly the same thing, at the same time. . . .

Don't Short An Oversold Market in An Uptrend
Amid an early morning short squeeze in the UVXY, the markets sold off sharply. However, the major indexes once again became "oversold in an uptrend" on hourly charts, which led to a nice recovery by the end of the day. . . .

Just Because We Are Overbought Doesn't Mean There Aren't Great Long Ideas
With the market a little stretched here, many traders are just looking for short opportunities. At Simpler Stocks, we are looking for small cap stocks that haven't joined the "bull-party" yet. There are actually some amazing set-ups still out there! . . .

Optimism About Tax Breaks Leads to a Nice Follow-Through Rally
Chris Brecher - February 13, 2017
Optimism About Tax Breaks Leads to a Nice Follow-Through Rally
The overall market is giving a big benefit of the doubt to our government's promise of tax breaks sooner rather than later. However, most indexes are very stretched. I would use the banks and the materials stocks as "tells" for the next week, as they have led this new leg of the rally. . . .

A Promise of Big Tax Cuts Propels Most Markets
Tweets from the Oval Office imply that huge tax relief is on the way, which sent most markets to new highs. With the /TF surging today, many of the small cap longs I have recommended this week have had nice gains. . . .

An Ozzy Osbourne Market

An Ozzy Osbourne Market
A surge in the FANG stocks once again led to a bid for the overall market. Foreign markets are still near the bottom of their ranges, so I think individual stock picking is still the way to go. . . .

The Weakness in the /TF Fails to Dent the /NQ Yet

The Weakness in the /TF Fails to Dent the /NQ Yet
An hourly breakdown in the /TF has failed to stem the rally in the /NQ. But with the DJT, the DAX, and the /TF at their lower range, I think it is time to be REAL cautious in the other major indexes. . . .

Most Markets Take a Breather

Most Markets Take a Breather
A sell-off in some European markets this morning had traders on the defensive today. I am watching the DAX closely. A break any lower here could lead to a move lower in the SPX. . . .

Bank Stocks Lead the Charge
Chris Brecher - February 6, 2017
Bank Stocks Lead the Charge
With everyone on Twitter showing the bearish wedge on the SPX, I showed the possible bullish pattern on an hourly for the Simpler Stocks premium subscribers BEFORE the opening. We've reached most of the objectives I was looking for, so now is the time to put in tight stops for any longs. . . .

Some Divergences Begin to Add Up

Some Divergences Begin to Add Up
Strong out-performance by the /NQ, led by AAPL, has masked some serious weakness in the DJT and other cyclical stocks. Coupled with a possible topping formation in the SPX, I am really defensive here. . . .

The FOMC Announcement is a Non-Event
Chris Brecher - February 2, 2017
The FOMC Announcement is a Non-Event
As I had mentioned yesterday in the premium newsletter, the FOMC would tread lightly today, as many of Trump's economic initiatives have not been run through Congress yet. With many divergences setting up, the next few days could provide clues if the market has finally made a top. . . .
