KB Homes (KBH) Wants $5

December 23, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: KBH

One of the people on our trading netork, posted a new short position in KB Homes (KBH) and I think he'll really like how this one turns out for him. The stock is coming out of a slightly upward trading range, and is breaking hard out of it today. And with all the hype from earlier this week about all the great housing start-ups, I think this stock is ready to be faded.   [more]

December 23, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SPY

Here's a quick snapshot of where we are at on the S&P and the big question becomes, will it fail to break through resistance and move lower, or will, it break out and potentially set the market up for a nice run into the new year?  [more]

3 Stocks Gaining Some Momo

December 21, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: NKE , PFCB.DL , SHFL

For the bears this is a disappointing day, they came strong out of the gate, but with an hour left in the market, the bulls are fighting their way out of the whole they dug early on. I wouldn't put a lot of weight into what we are seeing as volume is drying up quickly and the Christmas day is quickly approaching. So it isn't hard for stocks and the market in general to get 'manipulated', particularly with year-end window dressing quickly approaching.   [more]

3 Stocks You Gotta Buy On the Pullback

December 19, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: ADS , VFC , HURN

Market continues to weaken by the day, not in huge fell swoops, like we saw in July and August, but slowly and steadily. As the new year approaches, more and more I believe we'll see continued selling in the broader markets. But at some point, there will be a time to buy, and finding the right stocks will be key. Below, I've provided three stocks that, at the right price, should make great trading opportunities for anyone who dares to pull the trigger. But entry is key, and waiting for that entry to come your way is a must to avoiding slippage/uncessary losses.   [more]

SharePlanner Reversal Indicator

December 17, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SPY

At this point, if we get notable bounce, simlar to the two weeks proceeding last week's, then there is a good chance for an upside red/green cross over. That is not for certain, but very possible. At this point though, it is a contengency. Frankly speaking, the market shows a strong willingness to to move lower in the coming days/weeks, and assuming as much, puts the reality of a red/green upside crossover out of the equation. I've provided more notes on the chart below.   [more]

For The Love Of Money

December 15, 2011 – Comments (1)

Most people who get into trading, do so because they want to get rich. Maybe it's because they want to take coals that life has dealt them and turn them into diamonds, or perhaps they received a $100k from a loved one that passed away, and they feel propelled to gamble it away in the stock market. There are tons of reasons why, and for most of those that dabble or jump into the market are sorely disappointed when they leave poorer than what they started with (and many times they leave with nothing).   [more]

Here's My 5 $10 Lottery Specials for December

December 13, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: BRCD , INFN , GSS

Unlike any of my other screens, this stock screen focuses only on stocks trading under $10/share, and have a market cap of around $1 billion or less (I've included a few above that threshold this time around though). As for the variables that I used in the screen, I focused on fundamentals, particularly companies that have a healthy balance sheet with little debt to speak of, with a strong prospect for rapid sales and growth in earnings, as well. 

Now be aware, that these kinds of stocks carry huge risks to them. A simple downgrade, news event, or missed earnings target, can derail these small-cap stocks in a heart beat. But if you have some capital that you want to roll the dice with, these stocks will give you a good start in your research.  [more]

SharePlanner Reversal Indicator

December 11, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SPY

The market is at an interesting juncture here. The daily SPRI is indicating a bounce should be in the cards here, and the weekly SPRI could very easily see such a reading in the next 1-2 weeks. On the weekly chart we have a nice bearish wedge, and the macro economics globally, when considering the potential for implosion in Europe, suggests nothing bullish should be coming out of the market in the coming weeks/months.   [more]

Thoughts On Trading This market

December 09, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: DUG , TNA , SCO

While i lost about 0.3% of my portfolio in the market today (not much at all), I came away from it feeling very irritated. Yesterday's huge sell-off looked perfect in my opinion, and gave every sign that today would be more of the same, but, boy, was I wrong.  [more]

Google (GOOG) Showing The Signs Of Changing Winds

December 05, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: GOOGL

If you're to ask me, I think Google (GOOG) has done a remarkable job of holding its value this year. I know there have been some fairly rough patches where it declined in excess of 20% on multiple occasions, but as it stands right now, GOOG is close to breaking out to multi-year highs. Considering the year that the market has experienced, I wouldn't say there is not a lot of stocks that can make the same claim.   [more]

SharePlanner Reversal Indicator

December 04, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SPY

Anything can happen of course, but I've got to say that Friday's action - the double-digit gap up on the S&P, followed by the slow, perpetual drip of selling that occurred throughout the remainder of the day, to finish in red, was a very bearish sign heading into Monday and the week ahead. Also, there is a nice downward trendline that can be drawn on the daily chart, and on Friday, despite the gap above this trend-line, we sold off throughout the day, just enough to keep the price below the declining resistance level.   [more]

Bank of America (BAC),  like Netflix (NFLX), has been one of the year's most talked about stocks. Before 2008, it would have been hard to believe we'd have a market that put BAC in $5 territory (or $2.50 back in 2009), but such has been the case of late.   [more]
