Stock For Breakfast 10-9-23

The Market 📈

The brutal war unfolding in Israel and the official declaration of war against Hamas the precedence on the charts over technical setups. Our prayers go out to the innocent women and children.

The stock market put on quite a performance on Friday but we spent quite a bit of time on our Saturday game planning meeting showing why it was a short covering rally and not technically a bullish event. 

Many inexperienced traders miss this distinction because they aren’t trained yet to  notice the difference between a bullish rally and short sellers exiting their positions.

The reason short covering unfolds quickly is because the bears panic at the first sign of support holding, and they scramble by buying back stock causing that fast rally. 

We set up this possibility multiple times in our game plan last week simply by knowing the average true move of the S&P 500 which pretty much stopped exactly where the data said it would. 

This isn’t predicting it’s being prepared and knowing your numbers.

This applies to both the market but especially any new stock you’re thinking about buying, because it’s critical to know the average true move so that you always start new trades at the optimal entry. 


Although not a trade yet, #ETSY is showing classic signs of smart money accumulation as the stock price churns on above average volume. This will be fun to watch over the coming weeks.

On the surface level we see bearish order flow, but one bullish energy candlesticks validates the slow accumulation of stock by the institutions.

Our prayers go out to the innocent in this conflict.

Adding a dash of uncertainty to our financial brew, Yahoo Finance tells us that U.S stocks are slipping as oil prices surge. The black gold’s sudden rise is a stark reminder of how interconnected our world is, and how a disturbance in one region can send shock waves through our portfolios.

Yet, amidst the turbulence, some companies continue to shine.

Will this tech giant be able to keep its easy Google money, or will it have to dig deeper into its innovation well?

Meanwhile, Seeking Alpha raises a toast to Costco, a company that continues to defy market trends despite its rich valuation. We delve into why this retail behemoth can keep beating the market, serving as a beacon of resilience in these uncertain times.
