Stocks Went Up! Yahoo! – Try the Linguine Aglio e Olio

Stocks went up yesterday… Go figure! Can you believe it? After the most recent beating which took the Nasdaq down more than 14% and the S&P down 10% – leaving them both in ‘technical correction territory’ (The Dow and Russell remained just short of that 10% mark) – it appears that the selling has become just a bit exhausted – leaving opportunistic – technically driven buyers in a position to swoop in and pick up some cheap shares in names that only weeks ago were making new highs…

A Last-Hour Boost – Try the Pumpkin Risotto

Dow, S&P, Nasdaq, and Russell get smushed… Stocks close broadly lower – but did get a boost in the last hour… And as expected – it was ugly for most of the day… with stocks plunging right out of the gate… the Dow down nearly 1000 pts, the S&P lost 90 pts (just 10 pts shy of my 100 pt prediction), the Nasdaq dropped 273 pts and the Russell gave up 66 pts… the S&P and Nasdaq hitting those lows by 10:30 with the Dow and the Russell hitting those lows by 11:30 and 2:45 pm, respectively… but while that was the worst of it – that is not where stocks ended the day at all…

Markets are Under Siege – Try the Fish & Chips

Markets continue to tremble – Election drama heating up, eco data mixed, rising virus cases around the world causing another round of talks of whole country closures in Europe (not good), proving that not one major country in the world that has ‘succeeded’ in controlling this pandemic… then the arrival of US envoy Keith Krach – Under Secretary for Economic Growth and Environment to Taiwan last Thursday to attend the memorial service for former President Lee Teng-Hui to show support for the island – in direct defiance of Beijing also did not help the mood…

When Zero is Not Enough – Try the Risotto Amarone

So I guess the idea that the FED announced that they are keeping rates at zero for 3 years is still not enough to keep the bears at bay… They want more or they are gonna show him! I guess it was the fact that the FED on Wednesday said that the economic outlook remains ‘highly uncertain’ and with no NEW FED sponsored stimulus plans (not that we don’t have enough already) investors are re-thinking this whole ‘Risk On’ move.

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!! Try the Puttanesca…

OK – now that we got that under control – the company went IPO (Initial Public Offering) yesterday – and boy was there a storm… Shares skyrocketed on their opening day – feeding the frenzy of enthusiasm we have been seeing recently. But I have to say – it harks back to the 1999 dot com bubble – let me explain…

The Wild Ride Continues – Try the Rib Eye

And the wild ride continued for a second week as tech stocks roil the market… sending the Nasdaq down 7.2% over the past 10 days… with the S&P not far behind giving up 4.8% and the Dow down 4%... the temper tantrum happening in tech is clearly because of building nervousness surrounding both seasonal factors, geo-political issues and the fact that TECH is such a ‘crowded’ trade has been the root of the most recent bout of volatility… in fact the VIX (Volatility Index) shot up 75% since September 1st – in direct response to the selloff we witnessed beginning in September…

Shake the Branches – Try the Minestrone

Stocks ripped higher in what may prove to be nothing more than a ‘dead cat bounce’… completely forgetting why they ripped lower for the past week – giving up more than 10% in the Nasdaq and 4% and 7% for the Dow and S&P, respectively. The mood was buoyant in the pre-mkt trading… you could feel the excitement as investors/traders and algos all got ready to go on a shopping spree – apparently overnight – the computers realized that the ‘sale’ going on on Wall St – may be just a bit overdone…

A Dead Cat Bounce? – Try the Angry Lobster
