And at the same time, they provide a level of safety above dividend-paying stocks, which is what playing great defense is all about…..Another area which outperforms in turbulent times and recessions is...

a16z Podcast: Pulse Check on Consumer Tech Trends 2019, CES and Beyond
1 day ago by Andreesen Horowitz

Every year, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) puts the latest and greatest developments in consumer technology on display in Vegas. But beyond the excitement and the hype, what’s really here — or not here — to stay? Will televisions roll up into tiny boxes? Will Alexa find her way into electric carving knives? Which of these new gadgets will stand the test of time? In this episode of the a16z podcast, Benedict Evans and Steven Sinofsky share their take not only on what this year’s show had to offer, but the broader trends at play. From the evolution of the smart home and voice interfaces to the cycle of bundling and unbundling and the future of TV and entertainment, the discussion is a pulse check on where we’re at.

Making Sense of the Market's Split Personality
3 days ago by Brett Steenbarger, Ph.D. @ TraderFeed

December was pretty much straight down in the stock market, with accompanying weakness in other assets, such as oil and high yield bonds.  January has been pretty much straight up, with reversals in all those asset classes.  How can we make sense of this "schizophrenic" market behavior?<span style="font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: larg...

[Options] Settle In For The Chop
about 6 hours ago by Sean McLaughlin @ All Star Charts

Today was only one day but it felt like it may have offered us a clue. The major indices — S&P 500, NASDAQ, Dow, Russell 2000 — all experienced notable pullbacks. Perhaps the first notable pullbacks we’ve seen in at least two weeks. Now does this mean we picked the top and we’re about to […] The post [Options] Settle In For The Chop appeared first on All Star Charts.

Wednesday: Richmond Fed, Architecture Billings Index
about 7 hours ago by Bill McBride @ Calculated Risk

From Matthew Graham at Mortgage News Daily: Mortgage Rates Dodging Some Risk For NowAs it happened, bonds staged a somewhat impressive recovery with help from investor concern about global growth. Oftentimes, a big loss in equities markets can send money running to the bond market where it benefits interest rates. This was the case overnight with Chinese stocks leading the way. The strong start in bonds allowed lenders to keep rates roughly unchanged and--in some cases--slightly lower. [30YR FIXED - 4.5%]emphasis addedWednesday:• At 7:00 AM ET, The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) will release the results for the mortgage purchase applications index.• At 9:00 AM, FHFA House Price Index for November 2018.

Tech Reverses Off Resistance; Bull Traps for Semiconductors and Russell 2000
about 8 hours ago by Declan Fallon @ Fallond Picks

After two short plays were cut from under Large Cap traders it's now the turn of Small Caps and Tech indices to take a second bite of the cherry. In the case of Tech indices, there is resistance to work with too.The Russell 2000 finished the day with a 'bull trap', reversing Friday's breakout. This is a fresh shorting opportunity with a stop above 1,487. Technicals are bullish so there is no suggestive weakness which may guide to further downside so keep stops tight.  The last stop was whipped out so without clear resistance there is a chance this could follow with another whipsaw signal.<img border="0" data-original-height="750" data-original-width="620" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-SIT_EExcpEI/XEeZ6W...

Comments on December Existing Home Sales
about 14 hours ago by Bill McBride @ Calculated Risk

Earlier: NAR: Existing-Home Sales Decreased to 4.99 million in DecemberA few key points:1) The key for housing - and the overall economy - is new home sales, single family housing starts and overall residential investment. Unfortunately this key data is not currently being released due to the government shutdown.  However, overall, this is still a somewhat reasonable level for existing home sales, and the weakness at the end of 2018 was no surprise given the increase in mortgage rates.2) Inventory is still low, but was up 6.2% year-over-year (YoY) in December. This was the fifth consecutive month with a year-over-year increase in inventory, and the largest YoY increase since January 2014. 3) As usual, housing economist Tom Lawler's forecast was closer to the NAR report than the consensus.
