Another insightful issue of the ChartWachers Newsletter has arrived!

Expert Technical Commentary Delivered Straight To Your Inbox

June 16, 2018

Hello Fellow ChartWatchers!

Wow, what a whirlwind week. We had Fed announcements, we had tariff talks, we had monumental international meetings, major merger decisions and huge bidding wars - and that’s before we even get to what’s been happening here at StockCharts! In addition to this week’s articles, I’ve got some important announcements for you about a few things going on here at HQ.

The Gear Is Here! The Gear Is Here!

Have you seen our new-and-improved StockCharts Store? If not, drop what you're doing and click here to check it out. With a completely updated design and dozens of new books, DVDs and other helpful products, it's safe to say the store is better than ever before. My personal favorite addition, however, is our new StockCharts gear.

Now, we do have more awesome merchandise on its way, including polo shirts, golf accessories, mugs and plenty of other great items, but I couldn’t contain my excitement any longer. Between our new hats, lovely rollerball pens, coaster sets and water bottles, I just had to start spreading the word. Keep an eye out for another announcement when the rest of our StockCharts gear hits the shelves. But for now, go grab yourself a StockCharts hat or a custom S'well water bottle before the summer weather heats up!

ChartCon Just Keeps Getting Better

I’m thrilled to announce that we’ve just added another featured speaker to our already incredible lineup for ChartCon 2018. Renowned momentum trader and world-class educator, Mary Ellen McGonagle, will be joining us on stage to share the unique strategies she’s used throughout her long and successful career both on and off Wall Street. I can’t wait to see what Mary Ellen has in store for us, and this wonderful addition to the conference is only making me more eager for August to arrive.

As I mentioned the other week, we’ve now posted the finalized agenda for ChartCon (including presentation titles) online. If you haven’t yet had a chance to take a look at the list of speakers or the agenda, you don’t want to miss it. Head over to the ChartCon page now to take a look.

Dovish ECB Offsets Hawkish Fed

by John Murphy

Article Image

Editors Note: This article was originally published in John Murphy's Market Message on Thursday, June 14th at 11:39am EST. The Fed raised its short-term rate by a quarter point yesterday as expected. But it also added a fourth rate hike this year which gave its announcement a more hawkish tilt. That had the immediate effect of boosting Treasury bond yields and weakening bond...

Two Continuation Patterns Take Shape in XLI

by Arthur Hill

Article Image

The Industrials SPDR (XLI) has struggled in 2018 and is pretty much unchanged year-to-date. Despite flat performance this year, a pair of bullish continuation patterns are taking shape. Let's look at the key levels to watch going forward. Long-term, the trend is still up because the PPO(50,200,0) is positive, which means the 50-day EMA is above the 200-day EMA. The ETF also recorded a 52-week...

I ran some scans this morning looking for some new breakouts to 1-year highs. With the market pushing up for the last month, these food companies are starting to accelerate. First, Archer Daniels Midland is breaking out to new three year highs. Pinnacle Foods is breaking out above prior year highs. Nomad Foods (NOMD) has a nice chart that looks like it is starting to reaccelerate. If you...

But it really goes a lot deeper than that. provides you a myriad of ways to evaluate relative strength. I tend to use relative ratios most of the time so I'll focus on this method in my article.

Shorting Stocks that Miss Earnings Expectations

by John Hopkins

Article Image

I have found over many years of trading that it is so much more difficult to make money shorting stocks than going long. With the exception of the bubble between 2000-2002 and the bear market of 2008-2009 during the Great Recession we've been in a bull market for a long time and trying to short stocks in a bull market is like pulling teeth. However, just like it makes sense to

Stop! Don't Touch It! Let It Go! Quit Tinkering!

by Grayson Roze

Article Image

I’ve seen this play out time and time again at seminars, conferences, lectures, and courses. Remarkably, the conversation always begins with the exact same seemingly harmless five-word question: “But what if you just…” Those five words prompt me to step up on the soapbox and launch into the “tinkering talk”. A recurring discussion at...

by Julius de Kempenaer

Article Image

Relative Rotation Graphs® originally emerged out of my work on sector (rotation) analysis while employed as a sell-side analyst providing services to institutional clients. Shortly after the first introduction as a tool to visualize sector-rotation a lot of other possibilities to use RRGs sprung to mind. One of the first ideas was to use a Relative Rotation Graph at the highest level of an...
