  • IDEAS: HARVEY CAUSING “UNPRECEDENTED” DISRUPTIONS TO SUPPLIES OF “ESSENTIAL” CHEMICALS
    September 1, 2017
    IDEAS: HARVEY CAUSING "UNPRECEDENTED" DISRUPTIONS TO SUPPLIES OF "ESSENTIAL" CHEMICALS I just had breakfast  with a friend who is the head of supply for a large hospital chain. He sees Harvey in a different light based on his experience with Katrina  - and Harvey is an order of magnitude worse in his mind!!! Yous simply
  • EXPECT A FLIGHT TO SAFETY SCARE IN Q4 ( 10 y UST ~ 2.85) BEFORE HEADING LONG TERM < 1%
    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 the lows
  • 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
  • MGA Magna International Inc. IDEA
    August 16, 2017
    Watching for expected weakness in the auto sectors, the current technical set-up for MGA is below.   A potential double top can be seen on the weekly chart (left), with the market then dropping off in to 2016.  Since then a slightly contracting wedge consolidation has developed: breaking this structure offers potnetial opportunities.  Solid orange
  • COL Outcomes & Performance +18.6%
    August 13, 2017
    Back in January we posted a few ideas in our Defense SII; below is the original post for COL and the current market (2017/08/13).  A break out of the  long term weekly channel (solid orange highlight) shows a possible gain of 18.6%.  More could have been possible from a break of the riskier orange dashed
  • ORLY IDEA: Outcome & Performance
    July 24, 2017
    Below you can see the original post for ORLY's technical set-up on May 6th, 2017; and the current market as of July 24th, 2017.  The significant technical break around the $227 level occurred; and a low of $170 (+25%) was reached.  While we had identified the $227 level as one of significance, there were also
  • VC Visteon Corporation IDEA
    July 19, 2017
    Our weekly view shows VC in the middle of a long term channel; at the beginning of this year we can see the recent lift starting in earnest as it makes its final push off channel support.   The daily chart (right) shows the current market lifting within a smaller blue channel and bouncing between
  • AXL American Axle & Manufacturing IDEA
    July 19, 2017
    Our long term weekly perspective (left chart) shows AXL in a potential contracting wedge pattern.  Solid orange highlights the patterns support & resistance; breaking these offers potential opportunities for the next significant move from the market.  Along with the patterns support & resistance, blue s/r zones can be seen to have held the market, both
  • LEA Lear Corporation IDEA
    July 19, 2017
    The weekly view for LEA (left chart) shows a large lifting expanding wedge, with the market now at the top resistance of the pattern. The daily chart on the right gives us a closer look at the recent consolidation pattern since the market has reached the weekly pattern resistance. Solid orange lines highlight significant technicals
  • FCAU Fiat Chrysler Automobiles IDEA
    July 16, 2017
    Our MACRO BIAS for the auto industry in general is negative - we don't see it holding up in the long run.  When we take a look at FCAU's chart however, we can clearly see a positive trend still under way. The left hand weekly chart shows a long term expanding wedge, with the market
  • GM General Motors IDEA
    July 8, 2017
    After reaching a high of almost $42.00 at the end of 2013, GM has shown some volatility, falling off and retesting the $38-39 level several times (on the high end) while finding support around $27.  Three blue s/r zones can be seen to make channels offering potnetial opportunities as the market bounces off or moves
  • HOG Harley-Davidson IDEA
    July 8, 2017
    The weekly view (left chart) shows HOG has fallen off from highs in 2014;  a bounce from 2016 has lifted / retraced that market drop more than 61.8%.  Recent resistance has been found and if the market continues to fall there is a possibility of significantly more drop to come.  The long-term weekly chart shows
  • SII: FANGS – BEING “DE-FANGED” FOR A “QUADRUPLE WITCH” CONSOLIDATION
    June 15, 2017
    SII: FANGS - BEING "DE-FANGED" FOR A "QUADRUPLE WITCH" CONSOLIDATION As we moved towards the June 16th Quadruple Options Witch we have carefully followed our SII: FANGS. Between the Friday June 9th "Mini Flash Crash" and the subsequent 61.8% retracement through Wednesday June 14th we could see the possibilities of a clear ABC consolidation pattern
  • ORLY O’Reilly Automotive IDEA
    May 6, 2017
    ORLY had a strong lift through 2015 that topped out in the summer of 2016.  The first signs of weakness can be seen in the summer of 2016, where the market first broke the trend from the end of 2015. The subsequent bounce, lift to new highs, and then the fall off since Jun 2016,

  • GPI Group 1 Automotive IDEA
    April 3, 2017
    The larger pattern on the weekly chart shows a potential double top forming for GPI.  The daily chart shows the most recent market movement coming off significant technicals and falling within a channel.  Breaking from this channel (orange dashed highlight), up or down, would be a trigger consideration for a move to the next significant
  • ANF Abercrombie & Fitch OUTCOME & PERFORMANCE
    March 21, 2017
    In May 2016 we posted ANF with some potential technical opportunities to consider.  The left hand chart is the daily at that time; the right hand chart shows the current market as of March 21st, 2017.   "X" marks the same location on both charts to help with orientation.  From X we see a wiggle
  • FOMC MEETING: NAILED THE BOND YIELD MOVEMENT!
    March 15, 2017
    FOMC MEETING: NAILED THE BOND YIELD MOVEMENT! Everything rose in reaction to the interest rate news except the U.S. Dollar. The reaction we saw in the markets to this news may be like a Chess player thinking four moves ahead.   Bonds rose sharply on the news, in other words, long-term interest rates fell. If
  • JCP IDEA OUTCOME, HPTZ Method & Market Roadmap
    March 14, 2017
    Our original post and ideas can be seen on the left hand chart (JCP daily), posted May 11th, 2016.  The right hand chart is the current daily JCP (March 14th, 2016). The long term macro bias for this has been negative, and overall the market is now down  25% ($8 - $6).  It could have

  • XLY IDEA OUTCOME +6.46%
    March 5, 2017
    After our initial posting the market continued sideways with a slight positive slant. An initial drop off and then lift stay within the potential trigger consideration boundaries before finally breaking to the up side.  An orange dashed arrow highlights a potential move to watch for, and we can see that the market has now reached

  • TRUMP “WOBBLE TRADE” – 10Y UST
    January 17, 2017
  • DCO Ducommun Incorporated Technical Update
    January 6, 2017
    The larger pattern on the weekly chart has a potential double bottom; and the current lift from the beginning of 2016 could be a 3rd or C wave. IF this is the case, we would expect the current lift to be similar to the first (2012-2014), potentially taking the market up around $36.00.  The daily
