  • Lou: Ari Wald posted his technical take on the market on the Oppenheimer website this morning. His premise is that trading will be choppy over the coming weeks and recommends playing the market with range-bound expectations by buying stronger trends on weakness selling weaker trends on strength. His list today (I've added $ signs): Buy Ideas $AVGO, $CCI, $CINF, $CMS, $EW, $FISV, $FSLR, $GOOGL, $ISRG, $LMT, $MO, $ROST (note - @DAN has recently covered several of these.) Sell Ideas: Regional Banks Face Resistance $BBT, $FITB, $KEY, $MTB, $RF, $SIVB, $STI, $ZION

  • 1Boston330: $WAL. Added to long common position at 34.54 rhrn on 111K rhrn v. 10-da avg vol of 423K (somewhat thinly traded); other regionals are moving up as well $RF, $WF, $STT, $ZION, $STI, $BBT, $MTB, etc.; of these, $WAL is moving up the best for the past week to 30 days imho.
  • 1Boston330: $ZION Added to my long common position at 31.90. This and other regional banks are starting to move. See $RF (previously reported by Jadee earlier), $WAL, $NTRS, $KEY, $STI, $FITB, $BBT, etc. Long $WAL, $RF, $ZION, $BAC, $GS & $C--all working, $ZION the best so far.
  • bigbartabs: @1Boston330 $BBT Say what? You talkin' to me?...
  • bigbartabs: @mradams0621 @mradams0621 People you love... well, if that's the tactic... take a look at $BBT that @billfumick suggested earlier. If my cheesy suggestion makes no damn sense... see my prior Deniro post. If aliens are monitoring our forum (or China), they most certainly are thinking... "traders = crazy town... just like golf!"
  • 1Boston330: $KEY. Is doing pretty well on a down day; yp 0.7% on abv avg vol (12.9M rhrn v. avg vol 1 mon. of 8.9M; bouncing off the on the 1-min, 5-min, 10-min charts; some other regionals are also positive on the day: $STT, $NTRS, $BBT, $FITB. No position yet; waiting for close. Took small positions in $BAC and $JPM earlier town, but they are flat to slightly down rhrn.
  • dunsek: #RadarScreen some interesting action in some of the Financials yesterday. From a scan showing stocks that have moved up through the 8 day ema and who's PSAR has flipped to positive, we get: $STI (entering a squeeze), $BAC , $BBT (entering a squeeze), $HBAN , $NTRS (entering a squeeze), $UNM (entering a squeeze), $FITB (entering a squeeze), $PBCT (entering a squeeze if you squint) and $PRU (PSAR was already positive, but it's now above the 8). Smells a bit like a rotation into the regionals might be in the offing.
  • 1Boston330: $STT, etc @Forexpro. Excellent post and I agree with it. Prior to your post, I was looking at the regions, which are seeing some life. $NTRS, $MTB, $RF, $STI, $BK, $STT, $OZRK, $BBT, $KEY etc. $NTRS has increased the most long haul, but it's near resistance rhrn, which I do not like. $BK is in the middle of its range on the daily, which I like with some room to run before resistance. $RF has the most room to run, but if's facing resistance rhrn with such a quick and heavy recent selloff and investors wanting their money. $BK has stalled on the 5-min chart. $STT is continuing to uptrend on the 5-minute chart, and it is in the middle of its range on the daily. I will take a small long common entry rhrn in $STT. Edit: Took a small entry position at 76.85 rhrn

  • 1Boston330: @DrScience. Check out other regionals like $BBT, $MTB, $OZRK and $RF, which are not on your list but are moving up. No position yet, but $OZRK looks very interesting.
  • Forexpro: Re: $KBE Hi, Friends, The KBW Bank Index ETF is having a roughish sort of day: I'm expecting 32.80 to serve as at least initial support. It's predominantly a mid-cap offering, with the top holdings $VLY, $BPOP, $JPM, $BBT, $CMA, and $CFR. Hope the day is going well; all the best.

Yeah, know what you mean; I'm out below 14.90. Cheers.

  • dagdog: Markets @ $BBT - Kinda feels like we are going to be consolidating -- seems to be my favorite word of the day. The bollinger bands of the indexes are far apart -- except the DJ-20 which has in fact been consolidating. Ah heck -- who knows. Just not eager to pile in here 'cause I think I'll get another chance.
  • Henry4432: @ $BBT ... Agree about China data. I've been trying to sell where I can this am as I am concerned about watching profits disappear. We've had a nice 50-pt run on the S&P and I don't want to give it all back (like I have so many times in the past). GL.

  • flyfishn: $TNA @bigbartabs - Thx $BBT, I'm with ya in watching the 50 as potential resistance. I like @SFtrader's approach as well. Will add if/when price moves above the 50. I'm also keeping tabs on $TQQQ, cheers for suggestion on FAS.
  • flyfishn: $TNA @bigbartabs - @Roger that, #RHRN presents a low risk entry close to the Oops I'm wrong level. I'm a little skittish with the Fed meeting coming up, so keeping the position small. I have to remember your words on 'half mast', good signal to keep in mind. Think I'll write that down right now. Thanks $BBT for your coaching, I really appreciate your help and always look forward to your guidance.
  • Aragorn: FED - $BBT - I welcome more volatility - I day trade primarily :)
  • dagdog: Markets @ $BBT, Very wise words from you and @Tim S. Too bad the many of the daily charts are now below the 50 ma -- and they were looking so good!
  • bglee: Solar Securitization -- $BBT, yesterday, you asked what is "securitized" solar. I thought it sounded like making sure the panels don't fly away on windy days (LOL). I googled it and found it's that financial bundling pooling of loans of different risk grades from the good old days of the housing bubble. I remember mortgage loan securitization was blamed for a lot of people getting home loans who ended up defaulting. On the the hand, securitization of loans really goosed the growth of housing. So if the solar panel makers like Solar City and First Solar get into securitizing solar loans that would be really good for their business. It may turn into another bubble but I'm all for riding the bubble on the way up.

  • mradams0621: Markets- thanks $BBT, I was very tempted to hit the sell button. Maybe I should wait to see what the marrow brings.
  • mradams0621: Mornin- or afternoon now I guess. Just got on. See I'm not the only one being held at bay here in the forum. But what's up with all the posts that ref. "error messages"? I don't get no stinkin error messege, just will not let me in today's thread. On a totally diff. subject- just wondering if @Tricia could go public. I want some of that. Or better yet an $ETF that holds @TRICIA, @DAN, @JAN2138, @Forexpro, @Aragorn, $BBT, and on and on and on, you get the idea. How would you value the company? What would the future earnings expectations be? Just makes you want to say "thanks" to so many here. I really get upset when I can't get in the forum. $FIX IT PLEASE!
  • bigbartabs: Mornin... @mradams0621... if there was ever an $ETF that held @TRICIA, @DAN, @JAN2138, @Forexpro, @Aragorn, and BBT... in equal amounts... $BBT would be hiring Goldman Sachs to drive for a buyout offer before anyone figured out the ticker value of BBT. I would however require a janitorial position in the new merger... hoping to at least settle on CFW... Chief Foot Washer.

  • bglee: 50dma Stocks - I have been eying several stocks that reported well-received earnings, that are in an uptrend, and that have pulled back to the 50dma. I'm tempted to nibble on some of these near the end of the day, provided the candlestick remain open. And then add to my position tomorrow if today's high is surpassed (a $BBT tip, thanks, BBT). However, Labor Day weekend is coming up and the U.S. military may take action in a powder keg region, so maybe there won't be much upside momentum. Here's my list: $MA, $MHK, $TSN, $SBUX, $BAC, $XLNX, MDSO

  • bglee: Fast talkers -- @jan2138, $BBT, I think it's a Philly thing. #Cramer grew up in Philadelphia. I don't know about Link. She may have picked up the speed from working with #Cramer. I used to work with three people from Philly who always talked so fast, like they're trying to get people out from a burning house. I used to be in a quandary about what to do. It was my first real paying job. I was young and timid, and I wanted badly to stop them at every other sentence to get a slower translation... to normal speaking speed.
  • mradams0621: INFLECTION POINT- which way we going from here? up or down? what are you using to tell you? $TNA TZA reversed, now consolidating. Tick is good, Trin just came down below 1.0, now a buy signal. vxx is down, $BBT indicator posative. Iwm highest midget. Do I stay or do I go. What to do I do not know.

  • bglee: Market... $BBT, by daily green candle, you mean you want to see a closing price above the prior day's closing price? What about a higher close that @Dan refers to, like a red hollow candle, but still close below the prior day's close. Do you consider a hollow red candlestick enough of a turnaround?
  • bglee: $SPY, $RSP -- $BBT, it would seem that with tighter credit, the smaller companies would have more problem with funding. But maybe today is a special case with big dog $ORCL taking a pounding for missing earnings for the second time in a row. Most of the other stocks are flattish, so maybe ORCL's decline is enough to tip. (FinViz gives a informative view.) I think a strange wind is blowing for the big enterprise techs like $IBM and ORCL. I thought maybe cloud was moving faster than they could adapt. But now I think it's $HP getting off the mat. Along the same line of thought, maybe JP Penney's recovery is a chance to short Macy's.
  • fhsavidge: Technicals/Blood in the streets--on a day like today, a continuation of yesterday, and with panic in the air, the question I'd have is, do technicals, on individual stocks, really matter? The market doesn't seem to give a fig about the 20/50/200 ma, or whatever; it's just imploding. Falling through all of them, given the chance. Better part of valor then to wait until the dust settles, a trend established, at which point the technicals come back into play? Just thoughts for the idle. And $BBT, how do I get to that volcano? Seems the market got there before me. Cheers.
  • bglee: Random question -- $BBT, we have seen this movie before. J.P. @Morgan, not the bank, the man, resolved a crisis with the U.S. economy in the Panic of 1907. He played the Fed and with the money from the U.S. Treasury, he directed the major New York banks on how to unfreeze credit. I remember when Lehman collapsed, the worst thing that slammed main street was the freezing of short-term credit. Most businesses, big, small and medium use short-term loans to fund operations. Some big companies had to step in to provide loans to their vendors. I heard Walmart was doing this and may still do.

  • Aragorn: $BBT - my reponse re: the Congress is, the Senate is part of Congress Not just the House of Representatives. I was referring to both of them as a whole. They both suck so I am not going to get into this with Democratic Senate and Republican House they both suck period. Hey anyone can pass bills that have no chance of being passed in another part of Congress, what is the point. Work together and that is why they both suck. Please do not respond this is not a political forum and I hate this stuff here. My original point was not political but a statement of fact as I have done here, they both suck.

Don't you think a lot of money fled from of euro-denominated assets to hide in U.S. Treasurys and U.S. corporate bonds last year. A lot of that money should have been re-patrioting. The Japanese market has been rallying up a lot--could that be where some money is flowing to.

  • bglee: $AAPL, $NFLX - @woodman, $BBT, I think the hope that Netflix will be taken over is what is keeping the stock floating in the stratosphere. I have heard a rumor that Microsoft might. When Disney inked their deal with Netflix late last year, I thought Apple was a possible buyer, as Disney CEO @Robert Iger is on the Apple board. It's really that Disney deal that launched the Netflix stock from its long base and cinched the continued survival of Netflix. Didn't @Dan mention in one of his Daily Strategy videos that one of his Hollywood friends believes Netflix will be bought by Apple? The media conglomerates like Time Warner may hate Netflix, but I'd bet the people who actually make the content (actors, writers, directors, producers, etc.) really love Netflix, because Netflix is another bidder for their work.
  • crestinjb: Encouragement & Lessons - @Gochakal - Just remember there will be many more as $BBT already truly said in a post yesterday..... I'm a 4 yr something ? Still learning alot
  • davidm: Forum $BBT ColdFusion is old and may not kept up with the times-but is not necessarily unreliable. I suspect that the bigger issue is Flash, as whenever I have issues in the forum I check and find that Flash is eating the CPU. Same short term fix-close and re-open the browser, same long term fix, replace the platform. And Flash seems to get a new update every week.
  • bglee: Europe - $BBT, I think this is a BS issue that market bears will talk up every time they try to bring the market down. So what if Berlusconi gets back into power. His "drug dealers" are gone. The enablers of European overspending were European banks and U.S. #financials like JPMorgan, Pimco, etc. Europe's problem is they spend more than they make, and it will take a very long time to reprice their labor. It's a long-term effort that will require them to become European first and French or Italian or German second. In the meanwhile, the ECB will be the backstop and the whip to get those changes made.
  • ginny: $DBA good idea to watch. This is $BBT thesis. Buy the $ETF funds at support and sleep at night. I have a starter in $POT looking to buy an upside call on DE.
  • bglee: $AMT - I don't own $AMT, but have you long-term traders/investors of this stock noticed that it tends to peak in late January/early February, follow by a big dive, and then go sideways for a bit? This has been so since 2010. Look at the weekly chart. Fellow tower stocks like SBA and $CCI took a similar dive recently. It's especially curious since mobile tech is the "industrial revolution" of our time as $BBT said. Is this some big holder(s) taking capital gain for the year and they wouldn't have to pay tax on it until next year? Then they can buy it back cheaper later.
  • woodman: @dagdog @ Mr. $BBT - all you say is why I eat my dessert first, then eat my meal.
  • Goose: $EBIX @ $BBT I would say the expansion started this morning and is resting now. Thanks again for this one.
