'"The Premise"

It’s not a blockbuster film, but it’s the storyline being played out here at Djimstocks for over a month.   The review below, but,...  on to today's action first.

Us disappointed?.  No way, Jose!.  Okay, we didn’t get our expectation of a SPX ~880 coinciding with a XLF ~$11 close as a signal for this melt up to continue,   but it’s only a matter of time!.   We were just a little too greedy late in the day after an already great day!.  SPX875 is the true breakout for most following TA,  873.5,  a new closing high and should be sufficient for more upside as the heavy resistance is in the 866-872.  SPX 860 is support now.  

Okay, does it matter, why the melt -up?.   Recently, we pointed out overnight, *overseas market giving clues to our market day and it didn't disappoint this morning.  *Stress easing over the bank stress test issue.   Preferred to common offers instead of Gov't transfusions.  Watch if some are announced soon, you may have squeezes unfold in C/BAC especially.    **Earnings..Earnings..!.  AMC, FSLR, GMCR  are not curbing markets appetite for the riskier assets.   You want to believe parts of GDP, FOMC were the reason,  go crazy!


Let’s just review, “The Premise“….it’s not tiresome to hear,  the premise is why we are a whisper from 880.

Encouraging Eco' data

Underlying bid prevailing on pullbacks.

This is probably our most over used, but this why we are smelling ~880.   Last,  this pointed out after Tuesday night futures held 840 twice.  “Excess money is anxious money” as asset managers put money to work as the underlying bid.

Tailwinds outweighing Headwinds, Upside 'news' risks for shorts


Shorts not pressing new positions under 840

After getting screwed a day later recently by trying this tactic.  No reason for them to press shorts higher as the fear of tailwinds is always there.  Also, it's almost a technical issue to stay clear now.  Now, as we said late yesterday,  the ones in from April 17-20 should gradually cover as well.

“Anxious excess money + Nervous shorts“… equals ~880


This has been downplayed by most outlets b/c expectations were lowered so much.  We are just getting over the 50% of reports out this season and the tone is changing to explain the melt up occurring.  We had a different tone last week,   April 23rd,  before the open, …Some encouraging 'broad'corporate trends eg.AAPL CMG EBAY ESI RCL CS PNC HSY...Maybe..just maybe for a day the mkt can stop using the ' stress test' excuse and focus on corporate . trends...April 24th, Going a little on the limb here , but underlying potential for a big day". We got a big rally that day, the premise was earnings that morning.

Tailwinds to run over 860??...Of course,  earnings will dictate,  but if we keep getting surprises we'll have the shorts giving up and we can really overshoot 860.   The reason is this is where most of the shorts are set up from mid Jan -Feb!!..April 14th.

Switch to Selective Individual plays

Concentration, consumer discretionary angle, while the market trades in a tight range on SPX.  This was something we promised back in late march after Treasury news.   At that time, it was the ‘inflation’ trade with Steels the primary trade.   That was successful, but we’ve diverted to a more cyclical recovery trade mixed w/ earnigs  eg. TIF, GYMB .    Following this trend,  we’ve avoided the grind this month of the SPX/ SPY trade that has overwhelmed traders with its boredom.    We’ve a had a trail of stock alerts go up over 20% in a few days the past week,  LVS over 50%, WYNN, PENN, CRYP ~20%  and slowly coming back to earnings plays that was the ‘heart and money’ and why we are here and many of you.  Ah, the glory days! We added RGR  today.

After March 23rd close... today we surged through the 50ma and closed well above this 800 mark. (824).   This close is a big positive and the Bulls finally should have the upper hand going forward.  On a technical view,  the next big TA levels not until the upper 800's... ............What’s the next big catalyst?.  You got a sniff of it late today and that is if bankers- brokers raise capital through private equity deals to exit the TARP!   This is amost a clincher and what will drive this market closer to SPX 1000.    Did we say that..1000?   "This is isn’t so funny to many a Bull with excess or a nervous Bear now, as the weather gets warmer, this possibility will get much warmer in the next few months!.   We're going to get a correction,  but it may not come when all are expecting one"..April 20th.

Underlying push for the market the past month …It might not be the catalyst headline , but it’s an underlying reason since the ‘whales’, including hedgies smelling this idea since our late March note on it.

Okay.  SPX1000.    We are going there this year and probably even 1100 ,  the hiccup correction  will come, but as we recently pointed out,  what if doesn’t!!.  Well then.. we may just get a "V ' shaped recovery!!.   Now,  that would be a helluva “V” for victory.   The point is,  just keep trading with a “positve bias”  following the premise here at DJIMstocks.   We will have headwinds along the way, we will have sloppy bad days,  but we think the ‘easy’ and best trades are just beginning as we get back to concentrating on the methodology that was us.. ‘individual plays- linked to earnings’.

If we see the above bold/ underlined items falling apart,  you are seeing the beginning of the hiccup correction.  Make a print out and keep this next to your screens as a guide.




Sell in May...or will it be, Buy in May??....

We officially ended the month with SPX closing at 872 after a sprint from the blocks to 888, today.    Who would have thought the SPX would churn in the mid 800 range most of the month of April.   Back in late March, most market pundits expected a pullback from this market and a retest SPX 780 or perhaps even lower.    Looking back, we just have to say "boy, are glad we made our adjustment quick"!    In the entire month of April,  we didn't even come close to approach the SPX 800 level and that alone is quite an achievement!.   So, while most scream tonight, a 'reversal follow through day..etc', we're really not concerned as we're not the the panicky type.   Reason is methodology,  we adjusted late March to what got us here and not be tied to every move on the SPY/SPX as most of the market had become.  We've been into individual- sub groups plays and now the market has walked into our hands where earnings plays are making this a ' stock pickers ' market!.   Did you notice the majority of those linked stocks did not act with the market turn?.   So, no big deal!.   Plus, the gains early on any stocks previewed gave you an exit with nice profits if that's your trade.

What do we have to look forward to now that we are out of April?   We expect to see exact same sentiment carrying forward with earning plays dominating the trading screen.    Whether you like it or not,  people have come to believe that we are in the early recovery process.

Right now,  we aren't going to debate or argue against the actual facts with regard to economic recovery.    If this is the sentiment shared by the majority of the trading world,  evidenced by the stock behaviour, then that's what we'll have to stick to.    After all,  this game is about pure psychology.    What you believe and what may actually happen are two different things.    As long as people act the way they believe,  that's how this market will play out which underlines our main trading theme.

Speaking of earning plays,  we had two MONSTER plays from GMCR FSLR  highlighted in last nights Journal  Did they go limp with the market?   Both stocks simply exploded from the get go and they stayed strong till the end.    It feels like it's 2004,  doesn't it?     As we said, most of the stocks on our trading list finished green despite the softness from the financial sector.    What we are extremely excited to see these days,  is that earnings/guidance once again matters in this market.     This is simply the kind of proven play style we were so accustomed to back in the good days.   We are so glad the "good game" is back.    There have been numerous strong earning reaction as of late.   In addition to the obvious ones,  we're monitoring 'new names' ....AAN CTV IRM LIFE STAR EXPE SFLY ARRS TNDM,  some may become fixtures at DJIM heading forward.    Recent plays like NEU PENN  continued to churn higher.    Again,  when it comes to earning plays,  we'd always be aggressive buyers on first pullback....PENN NEU GMCR RGR CTV DDRX,   still, most 'new names' we're undecided on at this stage.

We may not have closed the day at the high,  but this just gives market enough time/ room to churn higher.   In our opinion,  the sooner we get to SPX 900+,  the sooner the party may end.   Therefore, we'd rather see this market take its time and allow us the traders to re-establish positions as we churn up.

Bottom line,  this market is giving everyone enough time to make a play or two.   It's absolutely crucial NOT to waste any opportunities in this trading environment.
