about 2 months ago by StockCharts @ StockCharts.com YouTube Channel

Tom talks about Island Reversals. According to John Murphy:"An exhaustion gap occurs right at the end of the market move and represents a last gasp in the trend.

Bruce Kovner retired in 2011 from Caxton Associates, the hedge fund he founded and ran for 28 years.Over that time the fund returned an average of 21 percent a year since its inception.

Streetwear and The Rebirth of Good Marketing
about 6 hours ago by Howard Lindzon @ Howard Lindzon

I am fascinated by good product and good marketing. I grew up with jingles and television commercials in my head. ‘Ho Ho Ho …Green Giant’ ‘I’d love to be an Oscar Mayer Wiener…’ ‘Plop Plop Fizz Fizz’ ‘They’re Magically Delicious’ …I still love Lucky Charms! In the era of the mobile phone and social networks it seemed like marketing and creativity had died. Continue reading Streetwear and The Rebirth of Good Marketing at Howard Lindzon.

about 24 hours ago by StockCharts @ StockCharts.com YouTube Channel

The unsustained bond market inversion was the news of the week. However, commodity related names and Marijuana names continued to drop. REIT's, Staples and Utilities continue to lead. An oversold condition gives a glimmer of hope for a short term rally. Is this akin to picking up pennies in front of a bulldozer?

Willy WeWork and The Money Factory
1 day ago by Howard Lindzon @ Howard Lindzon

The best take on WeWork is from Professor Galloway titled WeWTF. You must read the whole thing and then please recommend the stock to the family member you dislike most. The opening sets the tone: In frothy markets, it’s easy to enter into a consensual hallucination, with investors and markets, that you’re creating value.
