Midday Comment: Nasdaq approaching the "neck-line" of an "H&S" pattern


This is a note I posted today late in the morning. If you would like to get posts like these on a more timely basis...as well as receive my daily comments and "The Weekly Top 10" piece, please join us and subscribe to "The Maley Report" by clicking here.


If (repeat, IF) the stock market sees more weakness today, We’ll be watching the 13,000 level on the Nasdaq Composite. 13,000 was the intraday lows from last Tuesday, last Friday and this past Monday for the Nasdaq Composite...so it’s a near-term support level. However, more importantly, it is ALSO the “neck-line” of a “head & shoulders” pattern...AND it is ALSO where the trend-line from last March comes-in! (We’d note that the same is true for the 12,750 level on the NDX Nasdaq 100 Index.)

If the Nasdaq Composite fell that much, it would be down less than 8% from its all-time highs, so we are certainly not calling the 13,000 level an vitally important “line in the sand” support level. However, a meaningful break below 13,000 (and a meaningfulbreak below 12,750 on the NDX) will still be a compelling warning signal if (again, IF) it takes place. Therefore, it’s something we’ll be watching quite closely for the rest of today...and the rest of this week.

Morning Comment: A willingness to let inflation


It was an ugly day in the stock market yesterday as the 2.4% drop in the S&P 500 and the 3.5% dive in the Nasdaq came on a decent sized increase in volume and very poor breadth. In fact, the ...

Morning Comment: Travel & leisure stocks getting overbought near-term.


As we highlighted yesterday morning, large intraday-reversals (like the kind we got on Tuesday) almost always see some sort of upside follow-through over the very-short-term. That is exactly what we got yesterday...as some more dovish comments from Chairman Powell helped ...

Morning Comment: Powell Testimony.....TSLA & Bitcoin at key technical junctures.


We had a widely divergent market yesterday...as some groups rallied strongly as others got hit hard. In other words, the rotation that we’ve seen in the stock market in recent months was on steroids yesterday. Therefore, even though the S&P ...

Morning Comment: They're running out of stocks to short.


Uneventful days have been few and far between over the last several months in the stock market (and for the last year for that matter), but we’ve had several of them recently. Yesterday was another one of those days...as the ...

Morning Comment: Commodities getting ripe for a "breather."


It was definitely a good day for the stock market...as the S&P, Nasdaq and Russell 2000 all closed at record all-time highs. We must say that the “internals” of the market weren’t all that great. The breadth for the S&P ...

Morning Comment: Amazon (AMZN) is at a key technical juncture


Our call that the short-term rally in silver would not last very long at all...and our call that the heavily “squeezed” stocks that had rallied so strongly recently...were very vulnerable to a big decline...worked-out quite well yesterday. Silver basically gave-back ...

Morning Comment: Is the "short silver" story part of a "pump & dump" scheme?


We must admit, we just don’t see the big short position in the silver market. Maybe it’s out there...and we just can’t see it. However, when we look at the Commitment of Traders (COT) data, it shows that the net ...
