  • Futures point to flat open [View news story]
    Interesting to note that the RUT and/or IWM are within 2-4 % of the LOWS reached early in 2014, are both significantly below both of their 50 and 200 DMALs, their 50 DMAL's are both in a Bearish down trend and have formed a bearish "Death Cross", and both show a series of declining topes during these past 9 months while BOTH the SP500 and DJI are within a few percentage points of their all time highs and (earlier this morning) are both still above their BULLISH (UP) trending 50 and 200 Day Moving average lines.
    Obviously the small and micro-cap growth stocks (biotechs come to mind) and high yield income producing securities which might be considered to be "Interest Rate Sensitive" are being marched out to the back shed due to long awaited increase in interest rates.
    These are the facts.
    ARE THESE "technical indicators" suggesting a continued "buy the dip" strategy - or a roll over of bullish momentum toward a more longer term bearish posture?
    Time will tell.
    In the meantime, for your reading pleasure - King World News -
    provides plenty of sobering thoughts by the likes of Art Cashin, John Mauldin, Bill Fleckenstein, Richard Russell,

  • Do Death Crosses Signal Bearish Markets? [View article]
    Perhaps "someone" might provide research/comment on the "what if" the past Death Crosses occurred at times if and when the SLOPE of the 200 DMAL was DOWN (defined as when the most recent day's 200 DMAL level is below the previous day's level) .
    I'd like to see the same comments as to when the 50DMAL moves ABOVE the 200 DMAL - again - both when the 200 DMAL is sloping UP as well as when sloping DOWN.
    My intuition suggests that this "fine tuning of coincidental indicators" might improve the predictive value of such indictors.
    And especially if and when this event is occurring at the time as it is occurring with other indexes (and specific securities).

  • It's Nightmarish Contemplating A 9/11 Anniversary With ISIS [View article]
    Another reminder of what we all need to be reminded.
    This is a not well distributed REAL description of what
    the Islamic State provides if given the opportunity

    Not a pleasant discussion - but it is ALL REALITY for too
    many people who were not given a choice.

  • CTI BioPharma set for gap up at the open [View news story]
    5 analysts -
    low 12 mo TP=4
    high TP = 6 (piper jaffray and 1 more I believe)
    If at 4 vs cur @2.64= 50%
    First LT bear trend line at 3.5
    Today above the down trending 50 DMAL @2.61
    Next bull indicator is a CLOSE above the
    uptrending 200DMAL @2.88.
    Lack of any increase of volume is suspect.
    But - With recent addition of a 6th sell side analyst
    maybe some new blood from institutions will get in the game come
    as price eats through the overhead resistance (big selling volume) between 4.2 and 4.3/sh only 8-9 months ago

  • Franklin Resources: An Overlooked Dividend Growth Stock To Consider [View article]
    Since 2004, the SDY has significantly out performed BEN assuming a DRIP and the resulting Average Annual total Return. Based on the fact that SDY is a diversified portfolio of quality growing dividend paying equities, my guess is that the volatility of price changes is less than that of the shares of BEN.

  • Bull Market Crosses The 2,000 Day Mark [View article]
    Please define a bullor bear market in terms of days up or down - or percent of inderx change upor down?
    Also "just for fun or controversy sake", how many bull and bear market periods bottomed out and /or and peaked out during Republican and Democratic POTUS
    Since in some cases there is overlap in terms of different POTUS terms, this could be noted.

  • Rally to take a breather at the open [View news story]
    QQQ to new highs
    while QQQX a trend of two lower Highs during same two months.
    DJ a lower high
    SPX So far a lower High
    IWM a lower high and still below both the 50 and 200 DMAL but only a few weeks ago squeaked out a higher high
    Next 2-3 days might have some "fundamental" revelations to give a rational excuse for Technical Implications.

  • Quiet Excellence For This Dividend ETF [View article]
    Using the DividendChannel Drip Returns Calculator, VIG significantly out performs SDY as well as DHS since the inception of VIG and the inception of DHS respectively. The Average Annual Total Return assuming use of DRIP since inception of DHS was 5.57% vs 7.83% for SDY. VIG even more significantly outperformed SDY since inception of VIG for an even longer period of time.
    This calculator is VERY easy to use and can be used to measure comparative DRIP Total Returns for Stocks vs ETFs and mutual funds over various periods of time.
    Taking advantage of the power of compounding and "dollar cost averaging".

  • High-Yield BDCs For Q3 2014: Part 3 [View article]
    Chuckleh: I use the Wells Trade (brokerage side) of WF which once offered (no longer - I am grandfathered in) 100 free trades per year. Obviously 30/month allows more flexibility. Do you like their order desk on-line access and services for those looking for self directed - and is the premium program based on $size of assets?

  • Death Cross For S&P 500 And Russell 2000 Taking Place [View article]
    To what extent does the author - and or one or more of you - who use technical analysis including a combination of the Death Crosses (and presumably Bull Cross of macro indexes and or sectors - 50 DMAL moving above 200 DMAL) in conjunction with the use of the RSI moving above 70 and below 30 to help with the timing, identification and price of initiating and exiting portfolio, sector and or individual equity positions?

  • Top Performing Stocks Year-To-Date [View article]
    I Browsed through the 1 and 3 year charts of BOTH the winners and losers and came away with a "conclusion":
    Only Knowing with certain what happened (more often than not) in that past might lead one to conclude that the RSI levels - below 30 and above 70 - have in the past been quite timely in creating buy and sell "signals" when the short term prices momentum levels are at historic extreme levels and an opportunity presents itself to investors who have fundamentally selected potential investment opportunities to initiate or add to positions (if and when RSI Levels are at or below 30) and take profits or liquidate positions if and when the RSI levels exceed 70.

    I find that the actual buy or sell actions can best be completed on the sell side AS the RSI drops back below the 70 level and the Buys can best be completed AS the RSI moves back above the 30 level.
    Obviously size of actual or pending position and liquidity of the shares are important factors to help guide the timing of the transactions.

  • Emerging Market ETFs Ascend A Great Wall Of Worry [View article]
    Where is RSX on your emerging markets "buy em when no one wants them"?
    Do you use the RSI indicator to help "see" when FUNDAMENTALLY attractive (or UN attractive) ETFs are "relatively" over bought (or over sold) based on short term momentum moves?
    Use the past 3 years StockCharts, and with few exceptions, and note good selling opportunities appeared when the RSI on GLD and EDV approached and exceeded the >70 level - and were pretty good BUYS when the RSI approached and/or went below the <30 level. Using trailing stop orders to sell on strength and buy on weakness when the RSI shows this short term levels. Might help investors use technicals to fine tune their fundamental selection process.
