This Year Is In The Bag

The market continues to climb a never-ending wall of worry. Yesterday we were blessed with a historical stat that states, when January and February are up the rest of the year, is positive, and it has been positive 14 out of the last 16 occurrences.  You can pack your bags now and buy the $SPY and call it a year ( I kid). And if you want to outperform the SPY this year then just buy the $SSO.

We also have countless mentions of how the $VIX will stay low, and this is the new normal. I believe that markets go up and down not up or down and these stats are more relevant to me when the market is down.

I have a few names on my watch-list today that look interesting.

Here's the list;


We have an interest in these stocks if and only if they can get through yesterday's high plus .10-cents, that is typically where out buy stops will be. This single criterion will narrow down your list to a handful of names unless of course, the market is super strong. You can also narrow down the list by float, price, sector, preference, etc.

These ideas are what we consider swing trades that can last anywhere from 1-10 days. Most stocks if not all go through momentum burst that lasts 1-10 days, that momentum burst is what we look to take advantage of.

We live in a world in which we are bombarded with information, tweets, blogs, etc., content is the new salesman, content is the new marketing, content is the new networking. With information being so readily available, bloggers try to differentiate themselves with their writing skills, volume, and consistency, putting out blog posts to meet quotas. We are seeking to stand out from the crowd by showing performance, by taking all the information and seeking alpha, that’s the sole purpose of the blog.

What's Working

Huge gap downs in SP500 stocks are currently being bought. Take a look at the chart below (click to enlarge), and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. What is happening very simply is that there's very little to no follow through to the downside after the huge gap downs and the stocks almost immediately go into recovery mode.


$UAA $RL $MAT are three SP500 stocks worth keeping an eye on to see if they can recover like the above SP500 stocks after their gap down.

Looking At Coal

There's not much to say today, the SP500 is pulling back a little, all normal action, like I said yesterday; the market goes up and down not up or down.

Donald Trump said some positives thing about coal yesterday, I have a few coal-related stocks on my list today; $WLB, $ARCH, $CLD and $CNX. There's been some recent insider buying in $CNX.

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed House Joint Resolution 38 to stop the costly Stream Protection Rule from further harming coal workers and the communities that depend on them. H.J.Res. 38 blocks an overly burdensome regulation that threatened the coal industry with millions of dollars in compliance costs, reduced coal production, and fewer jobs.
Since 2009, the coal industry has declined, leaving workers and communities without a lifeline. Over 36,000 jobs have been lost without any relief in sight. From 2009 to 2015, American coal production has declined by over 177,000,000 tons, and over 600 coal mines have closed. H.J.Res. 38 will give coal country relief from these harmful regulations created under the Obama Administration.
During the campaign, President Trump promised coal workers he would support them and reverse the harmful actions of the past administration. Since taking office, President Trump has been steadfast in his commitment to reducing the regulatory burden on all Americans, their pocketbooks, and their businesses. President Trump has required that for every new Federal regulation, two existing regulations be eliminated.

Here is the rest of the list;


We have an interest in these stocks if and only if they can get through yesterday's high plus .10-cents, that is typically where out buy stops will be. This single criterion will narrow down your list to a handful of names unless of course, the market is super strong. You can also narrow down the list by float, price, sector, preference, etc.

These ideas are what we consider swing trades that can last anywhere from 1-10 days. Most stocks if not all go through momentum burst that lasts 1-10 days that momentum burst is what we look to take advantage of.

Gold Looks Ready To Go

The market continues to ascend unabated, the SP500 is now up 7 days in a row, the QQQ is up 9-days in a row, and the Nasdaq composite is up 8-days in a row. There's a rumor going around that a multi-billion dollar fund which is short volatility and short ES contracts is getting squeezed. Something about a complex options strategy that eats like a bird but shits like an elephant (selling naked calls). In the very short-term it is hard to get overly excited on the long side because the market goes up and down not up or down. However, my scans are still spitting out a decent amount of good set-ups, today specifically in the gold sector.

$JNUG $GSV $IAG $RGLD $AUY $SBGL are the gold stocks of interest today if and only if they can get through yesterday's high.

Here are the rest of the stocks;

TOP 20 INDUSTRIES FOR THE WEEK

A bulk of a stock’s move is due to the underlying sector/industry; a rising tide can lift all boats. Keeping track of the best performing sectors/industries and the stocks within the sectors/industries is a great way to narrow down the stock universe to the strongest stocks in the currently favored industries.

This week Aluminum, Gold, and Semiconductor Memory are leading the way.

Rest of the list;


Knowing the top 20 sectors is a starting point, what you want to do next is narrow down stocks within the sectors to a manageable list. You can narrow down the list in many different ways; market cap, price per share, earnings/revenue growth, etc. I like to narrow down the list by creating a scan that shows me the stocks that are not extended based on how far they are away from their respective 20-day moving average. This particular scan will only show me the stocks that are within 3% of their 20-day moving average.

Big League Day For The Market

Yesterday was a great day for the market and for our watchlist led by $X and $COTV.


Not many names are on the list today partly due to the great action yesterday.

Here's the list; $TECK $PI $MTL $TMST

The Little Engine That Could

The market continues to chug along; the SP500 is just moving sideways, Russell 2000 as well and the Q's and Nasdaq composite are leading.

There's a big snowstorm on the east coast, but I'm sure the machines will still make it to work.

Here's my watch-list for today; $PI, $GS, $X, $BRKB, $EXP
