IMB and Google’s Earnings

Larry Connors

With all three major US indexes showing ConnorsRSI readings above 80, the market is overbought and due for a near term pullback/pause. IMB and Google’s earnings will create a good reason to put the brakes on the recent rise and allow the market time to get ready for the next wave higher. For a free [Read More]

The Upward Glide in Volatility

Larry Connors

Yesterday’s follow-through rally occurred as normally does occur in bull markets and the market is now slightly overbought. The Daily Battle Plan Model Portfolio exited its long position in SPY on the close. This is the 70th trade in SPY since the inception of the Battle Plan Model Portfolio – the historical track record is [Read More]

Market Back to Neutral Conditions

Larry Connors

Implied volatility collapsed in the last 30 minutes of trading with VIX losing over 5% for the day and the more sensitive VXST losing over 9%. The fear during the intra-day sell-off in equity prices was extreme and the rally was a good relief rally. A follow-through today is what is needed/expected because there’s a [Read More]

Oversold but not Extremely Oversold

Larry Connors

The sell-off has been mostly US centric as most of the Country Fund ETFs are in neutral territory. All three US indexes have ConnorsRSI readings below 20 which means oversold but not extremely oversold. Remember, this pullback started from overbought conditions and ConnorsRSI readings above 80 so there is nothing out of the ordinary beyond [Read More]

Few Could Explain Yesterday’s Sell-off

Larry Connors

The main concern about yesterday’s sell-off is that few could explain why it occurred. Ideally I like to see specific reasons for nervousness (concern about a specific event) as opposed to random ramblings (“valuations are too high”, “too many IPO’s”). Markets have large declines for specific reasons and we’ll likely soon learn why yesterday did [Read More]

8 Winning Trades of the 9 Signals for the Year

Larry Connors

Bull market, bull market, bull market. Need I say more? Subscribers to the Daily BattePlan should have locked in gains on the close yesterday on their position in SPY which signaled on Mondays close. In spite of the market basically being unchanged for the year, subscribers have enjoyed 8 winning trades of the 9 signals [Read More]

Back Into Neutral Territory

Larry Connors

Earning Season is upon us and expect stocks to move in line with the numbers, especially early on. Yesterday’s rally took the Country Fund ETF Universe, especially the US inexes, back into neutral territory from being extremely oversold. A normal bull market would see follow-through for a few days from here. Today’s Potential Opportunities on [Read More]

Unknown Extent of Unwinding

Larry Connors

Good Morning. The US market is obviously oversold with the ConnorsRSI reading on the three main indexes showing readings below 15. What is unknown is the extent of the unwinding that is occurring by some of the biggest macro names in the hedge fund industry who are bailing out of their high beta stocks and [Read More]

Friday’s High Flying Momentum Stocks

Larry Connors

Friday’s pullback was healthy as it especially focused on the high flying momentum stocks as seen by the decline in the NASDAQ. Today the market is oversold but not at extremes and another 1-2 days of selling will create a very good buying opportunity. Note for TradingMarkets Members: Larry Connors will be conducting a free [Read More]

Walked Off from Overbought

Larry Connors

The market has basically “walked-off” its overbought condition. In healthy longer-term up-trending markets, overbought conditions can be taken care of by the market simply moving sideways for a few days (it’s essentially taking a breather). This is what we are seeing now and a rally from here further shows that money is flowing into the [Read More]
