Painful, ominous factoid: The Dow Jones Industrial Average has not been this far below its lower Bollinger Band since November 21, 2008.

E*TRADE (ETFC) has bought Cake Financial, a social investment service. This could lessen the chances of a buyout. http://tinyurl.com/y9tdzhv

With the breaking CF news, we should get a 3-7% pop tomorrow. That leaves only a week for CF to accept or counter Agrium's (AGU) offer.

American Express (AXP) Jan 42.5 Calls are compelling here at 34 cents. The stock is coming out of a volatility squeeze and may breakout.

Is it ludicrous to think that money inevitably coming out of GOOG tomorrow will reinvest in and boost other big tech names like AAPL & AMZN?

CF Industries has until Jan 22 to accept Agrium's (AGU) latest offer. If they do, CF could pop 10-25% in one day. I suggest Feb 110 calls.

Allergan (AGN) is near the lower Bollinger Band in an continued uptrend. Could be a low-risk entry into this name ahead of earnings on Feb 4

Intel (INTC) Jan 21 calls are way too cheap. An earnings beat with positive guidance will send the stock past $22 per share.

Watch for a breakout in NYX coming out of a volatility squeeze.

With a near-term stop set at around $42.60, Gilead (GILD) has a nice risk-reward ratio. Unless it hits that stop, it could revisit $46/share

BBRY hit $70 as predicted here: http://seekingalpha.com/s/a35d. Should lead to a nice lift in related stocks such as AAPL, GOOG, QCOM, and VZ.

The Dec 195 calls at around 40 cents look very attractive here. A big beat by BBRY easily sends Apple (AAPL) shares up 2% tomorrow. #stocks

The market, once completely linked to oil, is rangebound as oil falls yet doesn't react when it rises again. I hope the link is finally over

Looking at the futures, if today's economic news is positive, and the FOMC doesn't surprise us, this could be the breakout I was looking for

Abu Dhabi is suing Citigroup (C), alleging "fraudulent misrepresentation." Will this bank's troubles ever end? http://tinyurl.com/yct68ce

Looking closer at BBY's quarter, it actually looks fantastic. Their margins were lower, but is it really news that they were having sales?
12/15/09

Unfortunately, the converse of my last post is also true: as BBY falls this morning, it will drag INTC, MSFT, and others down with it.

If Best Buy (BBY) beats tomorrow, it will lift the entire supply chain with it, causing rises in INTC, MSFT, and others. #stocks #trading

Expect a brief USD pullback this week (futures are currently down), but a bounce off the 50-day moving average confirms the upward trend.

Look at Alcoa's (AA) chart. I can see the S&P and range-bound stocks in similar volatility squeezes breaking out the same way this week.

People are underestimating Best Buy (BBY) here: it could easily ramp into and through earnings, coming out at $46 or higher by OpEx Friday.

Recent Chinese expansion, Apple's delayed transition to Verizon, and positive guidance on 12/17 could send BBRY shares above $70. $AAPL $VZ

All it would take is another sovereign purchase of IMF gold to send us right back to $1200. $1135 seems to be strong support here... $GLD

Even with Synovus (SNV) up over 43% since I recommended it here http://seekingalpha.com/s/9gy6, it is still a buy and could break out soon. #stocks

Fascinating possibility: dollar rally off jobs report = short squeeze in dollar = carry trade unravels = huge downturn. This could happen!

The rally yesterday looked forced and lacked participation in the financials. Bad news today could reverse the momentum trade very quickly.

XRT down 4% since my call to short here http://bit.ly/8vrU2W. I'd cover 1/2 as there could be some short term upside in next 7 days.

In a post-Circuit City world, Best Buy (BBY) & Amazon (AMZN) will inherit some electronics sales this season. Buy both, but set tight stops.
