SII IDEAS – Investment & Trading Ideas

  • TNX CBOE 10yr Treasury Note Yield IDEA
    April 30, 2018
    Our previous update (Jan 21/2017) gave a couple of high probability possibilities to watch out for.  Our first paragraph said: "An initial break of 2.3 offers potential opportunity for a drop to fill the first gap, with a another potential drop to the next blue s/r zone below".  This is pretty
  • ORLY O’Reilly Automotive IDEA
    April 29, 2018
    The potential pattern for ORLY since it started falling off in 2016 appears to be unfolding as an expanding wedge (weekly chart left).  The current market is approaching the resistance for the pattern as well as previous highs and  these offer potential opportunities when broken or bounced off
  • FCAU Fiat Chrysler Automobiles IDEA
    April 13, 2018
    On the weekly chart (left) we can see a significant rise for FCAU, breaking from a sideways channel mid-2017 and lifting to the end of Jan.2018.   This lift created a channel structure and overall we are watching to see if the market continues to lift within the channel, or breaks from it.   
  • USDCNY IDEA 2018 03 13
    March 13, 2018
    In general, the drop we can see from the USDCNY since the start of 2017 has followed along with the fall off in the USD. Keeping an eye on the USD could offer some clues as to what to expect from the USDCNY. A low was reached in Feb 2018; the market bounced and has
  • MATASII: 10 UST YIELD ~2.85 June 2018
    February 2, 2018
    MATASII: 10 UST YIELD ~2.85 June
    September 1, 2017
    EXPECT A FLIGHT TO SAFETY SCARE IN Q4 ( 10 y UST ~ 2.85) BEFORE HEADING LONG TERM < 1% At MATASII we have been strong in OUR "UnderTheLens" and "LONGWave" videos that we see 10 Y UST rates below 1% long term. We have more recently felt (in our IDEA posts ) that a
  • CMI Cummins IDEA
    August 28, 2017
    CMI has recently broken through a long term weekly channel that had contained the market during its lift through 2016-17.  This may be the warning or the start of a bigger move down or just a correction to the large lift since 2016.  Significant supports are near by and we will be watching to see
  • MLM Martin Marietta Materials IDEA
    August 28, 2017
    The weekly chart on the left shows a potential double top for MLM.  The latest drop has moved the market to the s/r of the previous pattern, where we can see on the daily chart (right) that it has just broken through.  Watching to see if support is found here, or if it will continue
  • USCR U.S. Concrete IDEA
    August 26, 2017
    USCR has recently pulled back and and is approaching the weekly 34ma (left chart, pink ma). This offers potential opportunity for the market to bounce from the 34ma and lift to the UBB, or break through and drop to the LBB.  Note that these BB's are roughly aligning with recent market highs and
  • JCI Johnson Controls International IDEA
    August 16, 2017
    The weekly view of JCI shows the market has reached previous high levels (left edge of left chart), and may be putting in a potential double top (left chart, current).  The lift from JCI sine 2003 has done so in a contracting wedge: a break of the pattern could offer opportunity. IF we do see
