Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Written by Forrest Crist-Ruiz Two sectors within Mish’s Economic Modern Family including transportation (IYT) and semiconductors (SMH) have rallied near all-time highs.

Trades & Tutorials, by Holden Milstein


Last week was a wild week in the cryptocurrency market. Sentiment has quickly changed from 50/50 bullish vs. bearish to almost entirely bullish in just the last 10 days. This is indicative of the significance that non-technical factors can have in the price action of cryptos. On the other hand, technical analysis of recent market action spells out clear trade opportunities that investor sentiment may ignore. Similar to the S&P 500 (SPY) being commonly used

Riddled with tech companies that are selling off, the Nasdaq 100 (QQQ) has struggled to hold over its 50-Day moving average at $381.02.

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


When you know how to read market action with the Opening Range you can see when and how another market is influencing your trades (for better or worse)! Put another way; you can also see when inter-market relationships are “working” or changing.

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


  As we highlighted last weekend that “something stinks” the nasty odor erupted in the form of a strong sell-off in global markets due to the emergence of yet another new strain of Covid which is particularly virulent.

Is the Stock Market Entering a Distribution Phase?

December 1, 2021

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Written by Forrest Crist-Ruiz A distribution phase as taught through Mish’s book “Plant Your Money Tree” is when the price of a symbol is trading underneath the 50 and 200-Day moving average while the 50-DMA is trading above the 200-DMA. This can be seen in the above chart of the Russell 2000 (IWM) and the Dow Jones (DIA). This phase points towards a bearish phase if it holds long enough. Additionally, this phase change shows
