You never know who’s gonna be the one with the big idea. History has shown it’s not necessarily the person with the most impressive credentials. A breakthrough can come from the least expected, perhaps like an 81-year-old eccentric from Massachusetts who toiled in isolation with no financial support for more than a decade. His focus?…

Weekend Market Roundup 2019-01-19 When Bulls Run Over Everything


This post is by Greg Schnell from StockCharts.com - Blogs

  • Bulls are in charge
  • Breadth is excellent
  • Looks like an initiation thrust
  • Oil buy signal
  • Asia buy signal
  • FOMO – Fear of missing out is starting to kick in for institutional investors

This has been a wonderful run for investors. Since the Santa Claus low, the market has gone up 13%!

This bullish momentum is continuing and the fear of missing out is compelling investors to buy in. If you are an institutional investor waiting to put money to work above the 200-day moving average, you are already 6% behind the benchmark. Forcing these institutions into the market creates this continuous lift. 

While I was significantly bearish saying any rally from here would be a big bear market rally, I did suggest that we want to jump on the bear market rallies as you can make a year's return in a few weeks. In this case, it does not seem like the

3 Stocks Awaiting A Possible Earnings Explosion


This post is by Tom Bowley from StockCharts.com - Blogs

Analysts meet with the management teams of companies and then return to their firms and either buy or sell based on the information they gather.  It’s the primary reason why technical price action precedes fundamental information.  If you understand the dynamics on Wall Street, you’re in a much better position to profit from it.  Over the past 3-4 months, the stock market endured much volatility and turmoil, sold off hard and then rallied strongly.  Many stocks appear to be technically sound, however, holding up well during the Q4 misery, and are poised for solid quarterly earnings reports.  Here are three that I believe will exceed expectations based on their recent price performance:

New Pre-Defined Groups And A Look At FAANG Stocks On Relative Rotation Graphs

If you are a regular user of Relative Rotation Graphs you are probably aware of the pre-defined groups (universes) that you can choose from when you open the drop-down box at the top op the chart.

In order to make life easier (for our users) and provide structure, I am working on a project to get more pre-defined groups added to that list.

A few months ago the group “Asset Allocation” was already added at the top of the list and a few headers were inserted in the list to make it more readable.

Week Ahead: NIFTY Looks At Taking A Decisive Directional Call In The Coming Week


This post is by Milan Vaishnav from StockCharts.com - Blogs

The past week saw the market remaining range-bound, oscillating inside a 250-point range and ultimately ending with a modest gain. Though the market did not take any directional call on either side, it saw significant amount of volatility within the defined range. While holding on to the 50-Week MA level, which was 10749 at close, the NIFTY ended the week with gains of 112 points (+1.04%) on a weekly basis.

Despite staying range-bound, there are couple of technically important points that should be noted. On the daily charts, the NIFTY rebounded more than once from the important support zone of 200-DMA and 100-DMA, which are important pattern support for the markets. On the weekly charts, the index has managed to crawl further above its 50-Week MA, which is 10749.

In the coming week, we expect the markets to make a decisive directional call. For this to happen, a move beyond 10950 will

Separating the Contenders from the Pretenders


This post is by Arthur Hill from StockCharts.com - Blogs


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




The S&P 500 is in the midst of a big run that lifted most boats, especially financial stocks. Even though these stocks are leading with the biggest gains over the last three weeks, most big financials are still in downtrends overall and below their 200-day SMAs.

Take Citigroup for example. Even with the big surge, Citigroup remains below its November-December highs and nowhere close to a new high. The stock has merely returned to the breakdown zone in the 65 area. This suggests that it is more pretender than contender. True contenders (leaders) are above their November-December highs and near new highs.

Chartists looking to separate the true contenders from the pretenders should focus on three price points: the relationship between the October-December lows, the November-December highs and the 52-week high.

Stocks that formed higher lows from October to December showed relative chart strength during the market meltdown (Citigroup did
