Slippery Slopes

We wish Tim house-hunting success in North Carolina. Here’s hoping he finds what he’s looking for. NC is a beautiful state and I bet his family will enjoy time spent there. Where I live now is the forever home, but NC [and TN] used to be on my move-to list. Here are a few slippery slope charts for your perusal. See what you think; hopefully, you’ll find some trade ideas.

Note that on all charts, the dotted green and red horizontals are the top and bottom of the Ichimoku Cloud; the Cloud changes with the wind.

In no particular order, let’s look first at TUP. I think Tim has been watching and shorting this for a long time. TUP topped in 2013. Earnings are May 4. (Note from Tim: yep! I’ve got puts!)


Your Week of Opportunity

By -

I have good news and bad news.

The bad news is that I am going to be traveling for an entire week. Not just traveling, but very occupied while I’m traveling. Thus, my fabled frantic pace of generating content for you people will be only three times as much as my competition as opposed to ten times. So be strong while I struggle to create posts (and give warm love to outside contributors, whom I’ve asked to step up their game in the week forthcoming).

The good news is that, as legend has it, the market always gets killed when I’m traveling via plane. I’m heading to Charlotte on a red-eye flight tonight. Consider yourself put on-notice about my personal plans, in spite of having no obligation to disclose it. It’s almost like material non-public knowledge.
