Sunday, July 04, 2004
Something for bulls and bears This weekend's list has tech stocks, clothing, drugs and more.

Thursday, July 01, 2004
Delayed Response As expected, the market saved its true post-FOMC response for today, with the major losses across the board. Is it a one-day plunge or a sign of things to come?

Wednesday, June 30, 2004
No Surprise The market got just what it expected from the Fed today, and shrugged off the news, with all the major indices posting minor gains. Look for the real reaction to arrive tomorrow in delayed fashion.

Tuesday, June 29, 2004
One More Day The event we've all been waiting for arrives tomorrow and we'll see what the Fed decides to do with interest rates. Expect quiet trade in the morning and then some explosive action. That action could get several of today's candidates starting their next directional moves.

Monday, June 28, 2004
Squaring Up Position squaring still seems to be the primary activity in the broad market ahead of this week's decision on interest rates. That leaves many stocks preparing to either break out or break down, giving us several viable candidates.

Sunday, June 27, 2004
Metals, Chips and More! Our list this weekend has a couple of metal stocks and tech stocks and they all appear to be bullish.

Thursday, June 24, 2004
Orderly Retreat Buyers that were hoping for another strong upward move today were disappointed with most sectors ending in the red. But it was an orderly retreat, suggesting base-building for another assault on resistance.

Wednesday, June 23, 2004
Stampeding Bulls While it may not have been evident from the major indices, there were some serious bullish moves afoot on Wednesday, most notably in the Biotech and Networking stocks. Of course, don't overlook the significance of the Transports breaking out to new highs.

Tuesday, June 22, 2004
A Little Bit Of Everything With little in the way of broad market guidance, stocks and sectors are trading on their own merits, and thankfully that gives us a wide selection of play candidates to choose from.

Monday, June 21, 2004
Energy, Drugs And Metals Despite a lack of conviction in the overall market ahead of next week's FOMC meeting, select stocks are on the move and are offering plenty of opportunities for vigilant traders.

Sunday, June 20, 2004
Iron to Candles to Semis We have a very wide ranging list of stocks to watch for both bulls and bears.

Thursday, June 17, 2004
Waiting For Expiration The markets couldn't manage much of a directional move on Thursday with options expiration looming large in traders' viewscreens. But with major weakness in the Semiconductor sector, it seems hard to see the bulls ruling the day on Friday. Despite that macro view, we've got a full plate of bullish candidates to consider tonight.

Wednesday, June 16, 2004
Snooze Fest We've definitely entered the "Summer Trading Zone"! Traders clearly slept through much of today's session, with the intraday range on the major indices and volume tallies coming in at the extreme low end of what could be termed normal. While we found some viable candidates, be very careful in this fickle and drifty market.

Tuesday, June 15, 2004
Mixed Bag The markets seem determined to waffle in a range until resolution of some major issues at the end of the month. That means that we'll have to choose carefully if we want to find directional plays in the meantime.

Monday, June 14, 2004
Where Are The Bulls? Buyers were hard to find again on Monday, in what turned out to be another light volume affair. Unless the bulls can muster some volume, we will likely be offered more attractive bearish plays.

Sunday, June 13, 2004
Defense, Wireless, Auto parts and more We have another mix of bullish and bearish candidates that should be worth watching.

Wednesday, June 09, 2004
Seeing Red With every major sector ending in negative territory today, you have to look very carefully to find some bullish candidates. While we found a couple, it does look like the bears may be once again gaining strength.

Tuesday, June 08, 2004
When In Pamplona Run with the bulls! Yesterday's strong breakout was followed by an encouraging consolidation session and it looks like up is the direction of least resistance.

Monday, June 07, 2004
Chips, Housing And Software Strength was prevalent across most sectors of the market on Monday, but the leading sectors were Housing Software and Semiconductors. We've got a nice list of breakout candidates, looking for Monday's strong performance to generate some solid follow through.

Sunday, June 06, 2004
Retail to Cards to Internet Most of the action was bullish this week but we've found a couple laggards for the bears

Thursday, June 03, 2004
Gravity Play Despite several rally attempts throughout the day, in the end gravity won, with all the major indices ending in the red. Things coul go either way, but as you can see by tonight's list, the bears appear to have a near-term advantage.

Wednesday, June 02, 2004
Bifurcation With a solid performance by the DOW, one could make a bullish argument for the overall market if it wasn't for the weakness in the Technology sector, driven by weakness in the Semiconductor index ahead of INTC's mid-quarter update.

Tuesday, June 01, 2004
Saved By The Bell After a listless drift lower through much of the day, the broad market managed to recover to above break even at the close. Look for more clarity regarding the near-term trend to return tomorrow as traders return from the extended weekend.

Sunday, May 30, 2004
Chips, Pork and Video Games It sounds like a man's shopping list but everyone might be interested in these bullish candidates.

Thursday, May 27, 2004
Light Volume Lift As traders looked forward to the long weekend, equities lifted higher on Thursday, with buyers favoring stocks outside of the Technology sector.

Wednesday, May 26, 2004
Day of Rest After yesterday's upside explosion, it was no great surprise to see the broad market pause to digest those gains. But the lack of profit taking suggests that upside plays ought to have the nod, at least into the end of the week.

Tuesday, May 25, 2004
Blast Off! Assign what reason you want to the day's move, the consolidation coil of the past 2 weeks broke to the upside with emphasis on Tuesday, with volatility imploding. Today's list is necessarily tilted towards bullish plays, but we need to remember that the downtrend in the broad market is still in place.

Monday, May 24, 2004
Drifting Along With volume extremely light on Monday, the market had a tough time gaining any traction in either direction. Such is the stuff trading range markets are made of. But that didn't stop us from dredging up solid trade candidates.

Sunday, May 23, 2004
Rentals, Investment Junk and Cosmetics We cover a lot of ground in this weekend's watch list.

Thursday, May 20, 2004
Go With The Flow While there are some tempting bullish play candidates, the market is still flowing downhill. We'll entertain solid bullish candidates when they present themselves, but for the most part, we'll continue to lean to the downside, as we've done with tonight's list.

Wednesday, May 19, 2004
Spectacular Failure Considering the strong start to the day, the selloff that capped off the day has to be particularly disheartening to the bulls. With such a dramatic intraday reversal, it still makes sense to focus on downside plays, as we've done with our list of candidates here tonight.

Tuesday, May 18, 2004
An Eclectic Mix With earnings effectively over and the summer doldrums straight ahead, investors have to look harder to find viable trade candidates. With that in mind, it should come as no great surprise to see the varied list we've put together tonight.

Monday, May 17, 2004
Bears' Delight More turmoil on the international stage sent the entire market tumbling at the open, a slide from which it never recovered. As long as the bears remain in charge, we'll continue to follow their lead, favoring downside plays.

Sunday, May 16, 2004
Weakness Prevails Despite several valiant attempts, the bulls couldn't accomplish much after the very significant breakdowns last week. We've got another handful of bearish play candidates, all of which are looking weak and we expect will get weaker.

Thursday, May 13, 2004
Sorting It Out Investors are trying to make sense of the recent price action in the market, trying to figure out if the next rebound should be considered a bullish entry point or an opportunity to move to the safety of cash. The good news is that the wild price action gives us a veritable smorgasbord of play candidates to choose from.

Wednesday, May 12, 2004
Stubborn Bulls or Scared Bears? Whatever the case, today's rebound off the lows was mighty impressive. With all the technical damage that's been done lately though, bearish entries on rally failures look like the best course of action, rather than trying to play the upside in this counter-trend rally.

Tuesday, May 11, 2004
Requisite Bounce After the pounding the markets have taken over the past week, an oversold rebound was due. We're not going to take the bait though, as this looks like the setup for some great bearish rollover entries.

Monday, May 10, 2004
Broken Support When major support breaks across all the major indices on the same day, that's never a good sign. That alone should provide a clear justification for leaning heavily to the short side, which is precisely what we've done with our candidates today.

Sunday, May 09, 2004
No Surprise It's no surprise after last week that most candidates we turned up for this list are bearish ones. We did squeeze one bullish candidate through, however.

Thursday, May 06, 2004
A Full Plate For The Bears With red washing across the screens again on Thursday, it certainly looks like the bears are regaining the upper hand. So it should come as no surprise that we've got nothing but bearish play candidates again tonight.

Wednesday, May 05, 2004
Quiet Consolidation In atypical fashion, the markets didn't have a lot of conviction in either direction the day after the FOMC meeting, leaving us with slim pickings for new play candidates. Here's a list of stocks that look ready to make some strong directional moves.

Tuesday, May 04, 2004
Anti-Climactic Traders that had been eagerly anticipating today's FOMC decision appear to have fallen asleep at their screens as the overall reaction was very calm. But tomorrow could be a different day, as we know the initial reaction to these events often doesn't last.

Monday, May 03, 2004
Day Of Rest After a very busy week, the bears decided to take today off ahead of tomorrow's FOMC meeting. Regardless of what the Fed has to say, it is sure to inject some late day volatility into the market. If we're lucky, it could even set up some viable entry points.

Sunday, May 02, 2004
Food for the Bears It's been a rough week on Wall Street and the bears look ready to strike again.

Thursday, April 29, 2004
Where's The Beef? Fresh off yesterday's carnage, the market headed south again today, led lower by big losses in the Housing and Semiconductor sectors.

Wednesday, April 28, 2004
Buyers Strike The bulls never had a chance today, as every sector ended in the red, with extreme weakness being seen in the precious metals indices and broad weakness throughout Technology.

Tuesday, April 27, 2004
Got Energy? With Crude Oil and Natural Gas prices still looking strong, the best bullish bet in the house appears to be in the Energy sector. With that in mind, it should be no surprise to see so many bullish candidates in that arena on our list tonight.

Monday, April 26, 2004
Biotech Bounce With the exception of a strong rally in the Biotechnology index, Monday was a lackluster session, with investors continuing to focus on earnings news, but becoming increasingly concerned about next week's FOMC meeting.

Sunday, April 25, 2004
On the up and up! Tonight's list has a few stocks breaking out or poised to do the same.

Thursday, April 22, 2004
The Bulls Are Back Auctioneer eBay was the belle of the ball on Thursday, blowing away earnings estimates before the bell and helping to launch a strong rally throughout the broad market.

Wednesday, April 21, 2004
An Eclectic List With the broad market spending the day digesting its losses from Tuesday, there were some interesting setups taking place. So we have a bit of a varied list to choose from tonight.

Tuesday, April 20, 2004
More Technology Carnage In what started out as a mildly positive day, the sellers held sway, sending virtually every sector deep into the red by the closing bell. Despite that negative view, there are still strong bullish candidates to be found.

Monday, April 19, 2004
Biotechs Lead The Way It was a mixed day across the market, but Biotechs were the hands down leader to the upside with a 2.8% advance. That goes a long ways towards explaining the prominence of Biotech candidates on today's list.

Sunday, April 18, 2004
Gambling, Homes & Steel We have a good selection from various sectors and a big radar list.

Thursday, April 15, 2004
Tax Day With today being tax day and tomorrow expiration Friday, it's no great surprise that the market couldn't gain any traction on Thursday. While we might expect quiet trade tomorrow, the weakness in the after hours trade suggests more bearish price action heading into the weekend.

Wednesday, April 14, 2004
Day Of Rest After yesterday's very bearish session, market participants clearly needed a day of rest and the major indices danced around both sides of unchanged before ending very near where they started. That leaves the bears in control in the near-term, hence the dominance of bearish plays on today's list.

Tuesday, April 13, 2004
Check the site tomorrow for another edition of the PremierInvestor.net Watch List.

Monday, April 12, 2004
Quiet News Day With little on tap in the way of news or earnings the first day after the long holiday weekend, the markets were left to trade on relief that nothing bad happened over the weekend. That left the markets with a clean slate on Monday, offering up several bullish and bearish candidates.

Sunday, April 11, 2004
Internet to Doughnuts Our watch list runs from online advertising to doughnuts this week.

Wednesday, April 07, 2004
Let The Parade Begin If the bullish report from YHOO tonight is any indication, we're about to embark on a wild and wooly earnings season, with the potential for lots of surprises. That means lots of opportunity, but we need to exercise extreme caution and not hold any positions over an earnings release.

Tuesday, April 06, 2004
Digestion Following the strong gains of Friday and Monday, it was time for the market to catch its breath, and the consolidation looked quite healthy except for the decline in Semiconductor stocks. Look for bullish plays to continue to shine as April earnings approaches.

Monday, April 05, 2004
Bulls Win Again Friday's bullish close certainly looked like it should see some follow through today and that was certainly the case, with Technology stocks leading the way. The April pre-earnings run appears to be underway, so let's hitch a ride.

Sunday, April 04, 2004
ABC's and an Apple or two Tech, Tech and more tech. There's a lot to watch.

Thursday, April 01, 2004
April Fools There were no pranks played in the market for April Fool's Day, with the broad market holding in a tight range throughout the session, with Technology stocks once again assuming their leadership role, as the NASDAQ broke strongly above the 2000 level.

Wednesday, March 31, 2004
Fully Dressed Fund managers were apparently happy with their work from earlier in the week and were content to engage in a holding action as the quarterly window dressing came to an end today.

Tuesday, March 30, 2004
Rally Ho! It was hard to figure out who the winner would be on Tuesday, but in the end it was the bulls, as some key resistance levels fell and others look likely to do that later in the week.

Monday, March 29, 2004
Bulls Getting Bold With a heavy slate of economic data due out this week along with April earnings looming on the horizon, the bulls took the ball and ran with it on Monday, driving all the major indices, right to strong resistance.

Sunday, March 28, 2004
Fast Food, Gambling and Radio! We have quite the eclectic list for traders to watch next week.

Thursday, March 25, 2004
A Rally With Legs After several failed rally attempts, the market moved forward with purpose on Thursday, gapping higher at the open and then steadily gaining ground right into the closing bell. The big question is whether this will be another one day wonder or if the profit taking has finally run its course.

Wednesday, March 24, 2004
Still On The Edge It has been a rough week for the bulls so far, with nary a sign of a sustained rebound from key levels of support. To the bulls' credit, they've managed to prevent further technical damage, but it should come as no surprise that our playlist continues to be biased to the downside.

Tuesday, March 23, 2004
No Conviction Buyers tried on several occasions to get a rebound going on Tuesday, but to no avail. When the closing bell rang, all the major indices were resting in negative territory and that keeps attention focused on the downside.

Monday, March 22, 2004
Where Did The Buyers Go? Breaking one support level after another, the market has definitely changed its tune and it should come as no surprise that we've got a fresh crop of bearish plays today.

Sunday, March 21, 2004
Play Ideas for Bulls & Bears We have a very varied list of miners, chemical makers, networkers and retailers.

Thursday, March 18, 2004
Waiting To Expire It's options expiration week and the normal gyrations surrounding that event along with lots of market moving news kept the action volatile on Thursday. It is taking a bit more work to find them but there are still plenty of solid candidates, both for the bulls and the bears.

Wednesday, March 17, 2004
Sigh Of Relief The bulls can finally breathe again, as today's rebound gives the appearance that a near-term bottom is in place. Bullish plays should do well over the next week as the oversold condition is worked off.

Tuesday, March 16, 2004
Non-Event The FOMC meeting came and went, with equities gyrating wildly about the event in typical fashion. There was no new information provided and that leaves stocks on their own for the remainder of the week, subject to trends already in place or breaking news as it happens.

Monday, March 15, 2004
No Rest For The Bulls Traders that thought Friday's rebound marked the end of the selloff were in for a rude awakening as sellers dominated again on Monday, the day before the FOMC meeting. With all the major indices closing at new lows for the year, we can expect bullish conviction to be further tested later this week.

Sunday, March 14, 2004
Gambling, Chips and Clothing Some bullish ideas for what could be a bullish week!

Thursday, March 11, 2004
Absolute Carnage Wednesday's selloff was rough enough on the bulls, and with volatility soaring today, it appears they are finally coming to terms with the fact this is more than just normal profit taking.

Wednesday, March 10, 2004
Selloff! This is turning into an ugly week for the bulls, with one support level after another being broken. While an oversold bounce is likely before the week is out, there's clearly more room for many stocks to fall.

Tuesday, March 09, 2004
Broken Support Both the NASDAQ and the DOW punctured important support levels today, with the NASDAQ closing under 2000 for the first time this year and the DOW continuing its breakdown under the 50-dma. There are still bullish plays to be found, but downside plays are growing in number.

Monday, March 08, 2004
Losses Across The Board While the weakness was led by the slide in the Semiconductor sector on Monday, no major sector was able to avoid the selling party, which had the broad market closing down and the NASDAQ suffering a painful slide back near the key 2000 level.

Sunday, March 07, 2004
Traded on the NYSE Our brief watch list today consists of stocks on the NYSE.

Thursday, March 04, 2004
Dull But Not Weak Just when you thought the broad market couldn't get any less exciting, it turns in a pathetic performance like it did today. But the important point to remember is that the bulls are still in charge, and we continue to bias our play selections in that direction.

Wednesday, March 03, 2004
Still Churning With the broad market still churning in it tired old range of the past couple months, picking the right stocks is becoming more challenging every day. But here we've got a fresh set of possibles to consider.

Tuesday, March 02, 2004
One Day Up, One Day Down The recent pattern of indecision in the broad market continued on Tuesday, with the bears taking back almost all of Monday's gains. With the broad market still pinned between support and resistance, it is definitely a stock picker's market.

Monday, March 01, 2004
Another Week, Another Rebound Following last week's tight consolidation, investors showed their bullish predilection for buying after some more positive economic data and sent the market's solidly higher. Buying those dips is still the favored strategy and now we have some fresh breakouts to play.

Sunday, February 29, 2004
A very mixed bag. Watch these stocks for potential entry points this week!

Thursday, February 26, 2004
Buyers, Buyers, Everywhere! It may not be evident from the price action of the major indices, but the bulls are still very active buying the dips. We've got a fresh list of bullish candidates, many of which are threatening to break to new highs.

Wednesday, February 25, 2004
Rebound! Just like clockwork, the major indices commenced a rebound from key support levels on Wednesday. There wasn't a lot of strength to the bullish move ahead of the economic calendar of the next two days, but barring any surprises on that front, it looks like the next rebound is under way.

Tuesday, February 24, 2004
NASDAQ Holds Support It was a contentious battle, but the bulls pulled it out in the end, keeping the NASDAQ over key support at 2000. If this is the beginning of the next rebound, we'll need to see stronger buying tomorrow.

Monday, February 23, 2004
Techs In Trouble Continued weakness in the Technology sector was the theme for the day, with the Semiconductor index (SOX.X) leading that weakness and breaking the $500 level once again. Despite a feeble end of day bounce from the 2000 support level, it doesn't look good for the bulls.

Sunday, February 22, 2004
Another Mixed Bag Possible play ideas for both bulls and bears.

Thursday, February 19, 2004
Rejected Again Despite a positive start to the day, the bulls were once again turned back from resistance and Technology weakness pressured all the major indices to close in the red. Is this a turnaround or yet another dip to buy?

Wednesday, February 18, 2004
And The Beat Goes On The broad market has been moving two steps forward and one step back for months and that pattern shows no signs of letting up. After pushing right to resistance again on Tuesday, today's mild pullback fits perfectly within that pattern.

Tuesday, February 17, 2004
Still Buying The Dips Proving that they're still in control, the bulls charged ahead right from the opening bell this morning, and produced solid gains across the board. Buying the dips is still the optimal strategy as new highs seem in store for the major indices.

Sunday, February 15, 2004
Bearish & Bullish Candidates! We have a handful of both bullish and bearish play ideas, many at entry points for new plays.

Thursday, February 12, 2004
Healthy Consolidation After such an overtly bullish day like we saw yesterday, a bit of profit taking and consolidation should be expected. Today's action fits within that framework quite nicely, and we're looking for more bullish action from here.

Wednesday, February 11, 2004
Bulls Party Hard With Greenspan's soothing words barely uttered, the bulls swung for the fences and hit a homer, blasting the DOW and S&P indices to new highs. Odds favor more of the same into the end of the week.

Tuesday, February 10, 2004
Bears Hibernating Again The market gains haven't been much to look at this week, but there certainly isn't much selling pressure. Strength appears to be building for another assault on the highs and that means our choice is to continue leaning to the long side.

Monday, February 09, 2004
Bulls Still In Charge It seems nothing can deter the bulls' buying spree and with the recent bout of profit taking having been absorbed, a continued bullish move seems in store. Play the uptrend as long as it lasts.

Sunday, February 08, 2004
Bulls Look Ready to Run We have a large handful of bullish play ideas on this weekend's watch list.

Thursday, February 05, 2004
Tomorrow's The Day The market has been running in place waiting for Friday's Jobs report and whether the missing jobs from last month appear or not, the report is likely to be the market mover heading in the weekend.

Wednesday, February 04, 2004
Building a New Base Considering the drop in the morning and the subsequent rebound, both bears and bulls are breathing a sigh of relief tonight as the broad market ended near unchanged. It looks like the market is working off the recent overbought condition and building a base for another run at the highs.

Tuesday, February 03, 2004
Which Way? The broad market is having a hard time picking a direction, and that is leaving individual stocks to trade on their own merits. But the strong and sell the weak and let the price action sort it out in the end.

Monday, February 02, 2004
Building a New Base Considering the drop in the morning and the subsequent rebound, both bears and bulls are breathing a sigh of relief tonight as the broad market ended near unchanged. It looks like the market is working off the recent overbought condition and building a base for another run at the highs.

Sunday, February 01, 2004
A Very Mixed Bag Casinos, Semiconductor/Networking, Household products and Airlines

Thursday, January 29, 2004
Bulls Buy The Dip One day after the Fed spooked the markets, the bulls proved nothing has really changed by buying the afternoon dip and recouping a portion of yesterday's loss. The good news is that the recent volatility is giving us a more well rounded candidate list, with a few for the bulls and some for the bears.

Wednesday, January 28, 2004
Fed Spooks The Bulls With a slight change in the language of its policy statement, the Fed spooked investors, who sold stocks indiscriminately, leading to the biggest one-day drop for the broad market since October.

Tuesday, January 27, 2004
Where Did The Bulls Go? One day after the DOW moved to a new 31-month high, there was nothing but weakness to be found in the broad market, with the weakness led by Technology shares. Is it another one-day selloff or has the much-needed correction finally begun?

Monday, January 26, 2004
Relative Weakness That's right, they can still be found. Even with the DOW surging to its best level since June of 2001, there are a number of stocks failing to go along for the ride. Focusing bearish efforts there should work well when the inevitable profit taking arrives.

Sunday, January 25, 2004
Shoes, Mortgage & Tech Another mixed bag of bounces, breakouts and consolidations.

Thursday, January 22, 2004
Earnings Parade With all eyes on the high profile earnings reports this week, the markets continue to gyrate near their highs. Earnings for the most part are coming in strong, which leaves us with plenty of bullish candidates, along with a few pockets of weakness with which to exploit the downside.

Wednesday, January 21, 2004
Is This Pamplona? Despite some early weakness, the market surged to new highs on Wednesday, and with new highs still swamping new lows, it still looks safe to run with the bulls.

Tuesday, January 20, 2004
A Mixed Bag With the broad market failing to follow through on last Friday's strength on Tuesday, we're left with an eclectic selection of play candidates, some bullish and some bearish.

Sunday, January 18, 2004
Three Techs and an RV A brief list of stocks to watch for the weekend with most poised to breakout.

Thursday, January 15, 2004
Financials Lead Following the big merger news from JP Morgan and Bank One, the Financial sector was definitely a source of strength, with numerous breakouts in the big name stocks. Whether it is a one-day-wonder or a significant breakout will speak volumes about this rally's sustainability.

Wednesday, January 14, 2004
Right Back At You After yesterday's afternoon rebound from support, the bulls managed to volley the markets higher on Wednesday, closing all the major indices near their recent highs as earnings season gets kicked off in earnest tonight.

Tuesday, January 13, 2004
Bulls Losing Their Nerve Following through with the weakness seen on Friday, the broad market indices posted solid declines again on Tuesday. With the sharp uptick in the volatility indices, it looks like the traditional January selloff may be getting started right on schedule.

Monday, January 12, 2004
Techs Lead Again After Friday's mild pullback in Tech-land, the NASDAQ came roaring back on Monday to set new 2-year closing highs. Investors are betting on a strong showing from the upcoming earnings season. Let's hope they aren't disappointed!

Thursday, January 08, 2004
Right At Resistance Defying the odds, the NASDAQ ended right at 2100 and the DOW finished just below the venerable 10,600 level on Thursday. The stage is set for some fireworks following the jobs data due out tomorrow morning.

Tuesday, January 06, 2004
Still Strong It seems nothing can derail the bullish action in equities, as all of the major indices ended at or near new high territory. With strong resistance looming just overhead, a big battle is brewing, perhaps by the end of the week.

Tuesday, December 30, 2003
Holding Pattern After propelling the broad market indices to new highs for the year yesterday, the bulls are just trying to keep the markets in a holding pattern through the end of the year to allow for bragging rights when those year-end statements go out. The big question is whether there will be any gas left in the tank next month.

Tuesday, December 23, 2003
Ho! Ho! Ho! Santa Claus looks to be visiting Wall Street this year and he isn't leaving lumps of coal either as all of the major indices look poised to go out near their highs of the year.

Thursday, December 18, 2003
New Highs It seems nothing can hold back the bulls as the DOW and S&Ps charged to new recent highs on Thursday. While part of the rise may be options expiration related, it looks like anything but long is wrong as we head into the home stretch of 2003.

Tuesday, December 16, 2003
Sell Technology That seems to be the theme on Wall Street heading into the holidays, as investors are gravitating towards the larger, more stable stocks.

Thursday, December 11, 2003
Let the Party Begin After Tuesday's rejection from key resistance at the 10,000 level, today's bullish victory is just that much sweeter. It looks like the Santa Claus rally has begun.

Tuesday, December 09, 2003
Selloff! This makes a solid week that the Semiconductor stocks have been weighing on the NASDAQ and the FOMC non-event did nothing to stem the selling, with the SOX losing over 4% on Tuesday. Can we expect more of the same?

Thursday, December 04, 2003
Still Strong Despite several attempts, the bears haven't been able to tarnish the bulls' enthusiasm for stocks and the DOW once again closed at a fresh 52-week high. Can 10,000 be hit before the weekend?

Tuesday, December 02, 2003
Rejected Again In the ongoing saga of the markets, both the NASDAQ and the DOW were rejected from an attempt to break out over the 2000 and 9900 price barriers on Tuesday. Those levels will likely be scaled, but the intraday pullbacks are helping to separate the strong stocks from the weak.

Tuesday, November 25, 2003
On the Rebound Tuesday's blowout economic numbers would seem to indicate the economy really is on the rebound, confirming the bullishness that generated Monday's strong rebound in the broad market indices. The big question is whether there is more upside to come in what is traditionally a bullish week.

Thursday, November 20, 2003
Back In the Red After a day of rest, the bears came out swinging on Thursday, bringing the major averages back to their late October levels. Whether this is the beginning of a larger downward move or just consolidation, it's clear that the bears are getting bolder.

Tuesday, November 18, 2003
Hibernation Over? The broad market has just delivered 3 back-to-back down days and with the major averages all puncturing their 50-dmas, investors are rightly questioning whether this is the beginning of the decline that has been advertised so many times recently with the bears waking from a long period of hibernation.

Thursday, November 13, 2003
Plenty of Action Once again it was a quiet day in the major averages, with all the excitement being found in individual issues breaking out or breaking down. We've whittled the list of candidates down to provide a little something for everyone.

Tuesday, November 11, 2003
Quiet Day With the bond market closed for Veteran's Day, it was a quiet session on Wall Street. The rest of the week is not likely to follow that pattern with plenty more earnings and economic data to influence investor sentiment.

Thursday, November 06, 2003
New Highs...Again! It's tough to find downside plays with all the major indices breaking out, seemingly on a daily basis. But they're out there, if you know where to look. So in the interest of being 'fair and balanced' here's a few possibilities for both the bulls and the bears.

Tuesday, November 04, 2003
The Pause That Refreshes Conflicting opinions about whether yesterday's breakout represented a true breakout or the early stages of a top left the markets in limbo on Tuesday. That left us with a mixed bag of play candidates, some for both the bulls and the bears.

Thursday, October 30, 2003
Last Day Friday is the final day of the month, quarter and mutual fund fiscal year. Expect stocks to be marked up for one more day and then we'll see if the bulls have any more in the tank next Monday.

Tuesday, October 28, 2003
Fed Feeds The Bulls The Fed may be out of ammunition with respect to cutting interest rates, but investors cheered the news that they could expect no rise in rates over the near term.

Thursday, October 23, 2003
Bullish Confidence Cracking With the first major earnings warning coming from KLAC yesterday and MSFT failing to impress in its report tonight, the strength in the market is being called into question. It's not a victory for the bears yet, but has opened the door far enough that we can consider some solid bearish play candidates.

Tuesday, October 21, 2003
In Full Swing Earnings season is in full swing and so far the fears of the bears have been largely unjustified. Upside surprises are greatly outpacing disappointments and that means we stick with the upside for now.

Thursday, October 16, 2003
Trucks, Radio and Internet The watch list is populated with some four-lettered stocks tonight with most of them looking higher.

Tuesday, October 14, 2003
New Highs Again! It's hard to find viable bearish plays when all the major indices keep breaking out to new highs. So we'll stick with the upside as long as it keeps working.

Thursday, October 09, 2003
New Highs for Retail The Retailers stole the show on Thursday, with multiple instances of positive guidance and the RLX index breaking out to new highs for the year. Can new all-time highs be far behind?

Tuesday, October 07, 2003
Full Bull Ahead After spending most of the day vacillating near the unchanged level, the broad markets staged another bullish move into the close and that keeps us leaning to the long side.

Thursday, October 02, 2003
Round and Round She Goes/Where She Stops/Nobody Knows! While many expected the October drop to begin Thursday, markets consolidated, trading either side of the flatline. Was this a measured distribution ahead of the drop that begins after Friday's economic numbers, or was this a gathering of strength preparatory to a new attempt at relative highs? Because nobody knows, we tried to fill the Watch List with a balance of bearish and bullish positions, but once again, we found more bullish than bearish candidates.

Tuesday, September 30, 2003
Rejected! Despite a nice rebound on Monday, the bears were back to mauling the markets today, with few sectors or stocks managing to hold in positive territory. In listening to the message of the market, we're biased to the short side again tonight after another rejected rebound attempt.

Thursday, September 25, 2003
Things Are Changing For weeks, all we had to offer were bullish plays, but now the tables have been turned. Profit taking and outright selling is hitting virtually every sector of the market, so it is time for the bears to experience a bit of revelry before heading into hibernation for the winter.

Tuesday, September 23, 2003
One Day Wonder Fueled by disturbing pronouncements from the G7 meeting over the weekend, the bears had some fun with the equity market on Monday. But that fund largely subsided on Tuesday, as the dollar firmed. There are some solid bearish plays, but you really have to search for them.

Thursday, September 18, 2003
Surprise, Surprise! Many traders expected today to produce a test of key levels in the indices and a failure from those levels. Other traders had something different in mind. An upside surprise in employment numbers set the tone for Thursday session. All the bullish traders needed next was confirmation that the index of leading indicators was consistent with expectations, and it was. The indices climbed into the lunchtime lull, consolidated while traders lunched, and then began climbing again. With the Nasdaq breaking out to a new 18-month high and the S&P 500 reaching a 15-month high, it's no surprise that we found plenty of bullish candidates and nary a short one. While we worry about the too-bullish slant to this offering, short opportunities prove elusive.

Tuesday, September 16, 2003
Fed Fears Fizzled Monday's inaction led to more of the same ahead of today's FOMC meeting, but once the event passed, the bulls partied again, sending the major averages back within striking distance of new highs. When in Pamplona, do as the bulls do.

Thursday, September 11, 2003
Uneventful Anniversary Investors breathed a sigh of relief with the uneventful passing of the 9/11 anniversary and helped to boost stocks slightly from their 2-day slide. That keeps the bullish tone in the markets alive and well, helping to keep our focus fixed on upside plays.

Tuesday, September 09, 2003
Bulls Still Won't Give Up No matter how many forces are arrayed against them, the bulls stubbornly refuse to give up any substantial ground, with the broad markets still holding onto last week's breakouts, although just barely in some cases. But don't worry, we're starting to find some attractive bearish plays too.

Thursday, September 04, 2003
Stealth Rally While the broad markets couldn't manage new highs again on Thursday, a quick look under the surface shows a lot of stocks breaking out to new highs. As long as this pattern continues, look for bullish plays to dominate.

Tuesday, September 02, 2003
Breakout! No matter which way you turn your head, Tuesday's session was an unqualified success for the bulls, with breakouts to new highs for the year across all the major indices. So it should come as no surprise to see bullish plays once again dominating our Watch List.

Thursday, August 28, 2003
Bulls In Charge Even the most bearish trader has to admit that this market is impressively resilient, and we were reminded of that strength today, when all the candidates that looked tradable were on the bullish side. So with apologies to the bears, for now, the bulls still rule.

Tuesday, August 26, 2003
Anything but Boring! We thought we would endure boring market action this week as volume dropped off ahead of the Labor Day holiday, but we were wrong. Rumors hit the trading floors again Tuesday. Traders attributed an early-morning decline to rumors of Greenspan's death and a mid-afternoon geyser-like rise to rumors of Saddam's capture. Whether TV trading has returned or whether something more sedate such as shifts in asset allocations was responsible, trading proved treacherous. It promises to remain so the rest of the week.

Thursday, August 21, 2003
Breaking Out All Over With breakout moves seemingly at every turn, our Watch list is once again dominated by bullish plays. But don't worry, we've got a couple of morsels for the hungry bears as well.

Tuesday, August 19, 2003
Smorgasbord With the broad market continuing to churn higher in deliberate, if choppy fashion, there is a plethora of candidates out there for both the bulls and the bears. Tonight we're serving up a bit of everything, from the Internets to silver stocks.

Thursday, August 14, 2003
We're Mixed Up! Late in Thursday's trading, the markets zigged and zagged, mixing up both bulls and bears. Global markets were just as mixed, with the Nikkei charging above 9900 again in Thursday's trading, but with GDP numbers showing Germany and the Netherlands officially in recession, joining Italy after its GDP announcement earlier in the week. Many expect Switzerland to follow. Perhaps it's fitting that our Watch List plays contain a mixture of bullish and bearish plays, slanted slightly toward the bearish side.

Tuesday, August 12, 2003
The Bulls Are Back! Alan Greenspan and company had no negative surprises in store for the market today and that more than anything seemed to spur the bulls into a buying mood once again, with select groups like the Retailers hitting fresh 52-week highs. So once again, we find our Watch List liberally sprinkled with bullish candidates.

Thursday, August 07, 2003
Bifurcated Markets Old economy has been leading higher the past couple days and Technology has been dragging its feet. That sets up an unusual dynamic in the market, so we've got an unusual mix of plays for your consideration tonight.

Tuesday, August 05, 2003
Bears Getting Bold! There's no other way to characterize Tuesday's action than an unqualified victory for the bears. Support levels failing all over the place and countless violations of 50-dmas has us looking exclusively to the downside in tonight's Watch List.

Thursday, July 31, 2003
Rejected! After a bold attempt early in the day, the broad market was rejected from major resistance and the resulting price action helped to uncover lots of play candidates. As you can see there's a little bit of something for everyone, and both the bulls and bears should find something to satisfy their appetite.

Tuesday, July 29, 2003
Strength And Weakness As earnings season winds down, we're starting to see strength and weakness independent of what the broad market is doing. That makes things a lot easier, as we can trade individual stocks on their own merits. Accordingly, we've got some candidates for both the bulls and the bears tonight.

Thursday, July 24, 2003
Earnings, Earnings, Everywhere It is tough to find a stock that is moving in this market for any reason other than earnings, so you shouldn't be surprised to see a healthy collection of plays (both bullish and bearish) that have caught our attention due to recent earnings results and the subsequent price action.

Tuesday, July 22, 2003
Here Come the Bulls Again Whatever the cause behind it, Tuesday's rally certainly looked convincing, as the bulls once again defended support and sent the broad market solidly higher. In deference to that sentiment, we're sticking with all bullish candidates tonight.

Thursday, July 17, 2003
Gaining Momentum It has been a long time since we've been able to say it, but it looks like the bears are starting to gain some momentum. That said, there are still some decent bullish opportunities to be had as earnings season progresses.

Friday, July 15, 2003
Potpourri The volatility that has greeted traders in the first two days of the week has certainly uncovered some opportunities. Amazingly, the majority of them are still those that appeal to the bulls.

Thursday, July 10, 2003
Finally Some Weakness It seems like forever since we've had a decent set of bearish candidates to choose from, but the selling across all sectors of the market over the past couple days have given us plenty to choose from.

Tuesday, July 08, 2003
Techs Charging Again! With the NASDAQ charging to new highs for the year even though the other indices are languishing below recent resistance, it should come as no great surprise that our Watch List is once again populated by four-letter stocks. Ride the wave as long as it lasts, but be ready to bail when the tide shifts.

Sunday, July 06, 2003
Holiday Hodgepodge The shortened holiday week left us with a mixed group of stocks to watch but auto-related issues made a splash.

Tuesday, July 01, 2003
Pass The Chips Tuesday's broad market rebound looks like just the type of session to get the bulls salivating again and it was encouraging to see the Semiconductor index (SOX.X) leading the rebound with a 1.78% gain on the day. So it should come as no surprise that chip stocks are at the top of tonight's list of bullish play candidates.

Thursday, June 26, 2003
Bears Feeling Left Out It is looking like a dip-buyer's paradise out there, with dips being bought across the board. Regardless of sector, stocks are rebounding and it looks like the setup for another run at the recent highs. So we're going to pretend we're in Pamplona and run with the bulls.

Tuesday, June 24, 2003
