Morning all, it's only Tuesday and already the madness has ratcheted up. Let's see....

So it's tax day. I won't even start to tell you how much I don't like where my tax dollars go....

Yesterday the market pulled off a win, closing nice and green. This morning the futures are nice and green and when I first saw them at about 6 am, I figured someone had come out with some good news. Well, in a much too common twist, most of the news has been negative. Yet indeed the DOW is up 50 and the S&P is up about 7 in the futures market.

Hello everyone, let's take a look at your Tuesday...

Yesterday was madness. Was there anything that changed so significantly over the weekend that we deserved to see the market gain 263 points? no not at all. They loved the idea that the Chinese might act to add stimulus to their housing and construction markets, and they reacted to the supposed increase in business activity that would bring.

But my question all day long was this.... "is this a one day wonder, or does it have real legs?"  The jury was out and still is to some extent.

Sorry about the brain cramp I must have had this am. After discussing why we should probably open our stops a bit this morning, I promptly forgot to tell you where I placed them.

But now it seems my head is functioning, so lets move along.

AKAM was indeed a tad weak this am, So I took the stops off figuring it was just "options hangover". It faded to 72.53 and then bounced to 73.20. That's still "red" by 6 cents from our entry, which doesn't much make me happy.

CTSH is also lagging the field. It didn't fall far at the open, but it too is red from where we took it and I don't much like that when the day is bright green.

I'll place the new stop on AKAM at 72.49 and hold the CTSH at 63.50.

The bigger question is... do we add here or wait and see?

Here's the thinking.

The S&P all time high close is roughly 2117. We're sitting at 2113. I suspect it might take a bit of "work" to get through that old high if indeed they are going to try. So we might bee a bit more pushing and pulling before the final decision is made. With that in mind, I think it wisest to be patient here, and wait to see if they can pull it off or not.

names that are looking interesting if the market does move up are...

WFC over 56.30
TROW over 84.40


So lets keep an eye on this and see if they have the momentum to push us up and over into new high territory or if resistance holds. We'll chat after the lunch crowd/European close takes place.

 

 

 


Good morning all, welcome back from the weekend. I hope you all had something wonderful to do and the weather cooperated for you.

Last night at about 9 pm, I flipped over to Bloomberg to see where the futures were at. Interestingly they were up almost 145 points. So this morning I was a bit shocked to see red futures. But as is often the case they "came in" and now at 8 am, the DOW and  the S&P are both green by a bit.

Good morning all...

Four years ago today the world watched as a tsunami breached the Japanese islands and destroyed the nuclear plant in Fukushima. To this day, it has been a disaster of epic proportions as radiation is indeed still a massive issue. After living through "Super Storm Sandy" I'm quite aware of just how nasty mother nature can be when she's ticked off.

Good morning all.....

It's Friday, and not a day too soon.

You all know the plot. The market is being tossed around on the whims of oil prices and what's happening with the Greece situation. Neither of those issues are going to be solved today, so you can certainly expect a bit more chop. However we also have the issue of technical levels to deal with. While the S&P has managed to keep itself above the December resistance at about 2094, the DOW hasn't been able to cross that level.

Good morning all, welcome to Wednesday.

Yesterday the market was really flat, which in a way is a big victory for the bulls...especially considering that we were indeed closer to the Greeks leaving the Euro-zone than any time  before. What I found almost funny was the late moment "push" where we saw them take the market from down a point, to up 28 in the last 4 minutes of trading.  A clearer sign of desperation, I can't remember.
