INK Canadian Insider Index rejected at 1200, falls 9 points

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. The Index looked to be building up a healthy head of steam in our last update. Its newly acquired momentum helped it charge toward the 1200 level, but the major resistance zone swatted the Index away with ease, and the INK CIN endured a quick free-fall to its 200-day moving average at 1157. The Index ended up bouncing 20 points at week's end to finish at 1178.90 for a loss of 9 points on the week.

Bombed out miners begin to outperform metals, hint at rebound

For resource investors, the last few weeks have been downright treacherous. Gold has been ravaged, plunging nearly $80 an ounce since its April highs. Platinum is almost 13% off its highs. Oil has fared even worse, slipping 17% in two months. And lest we forget, silver has fallen a record 15 days straight, with a current loss of 14%.

INK Canadian Insider Index: bottomed and ready for blast-off?

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. The Index continues to show signs of emerging from its recent slumber, and, indeed, last week bounded as high as 1201 where its upper Bollinger bands kept it in check. And though The INK CIN dipped slightly on Thursday and Friday, it managed to avoid even a single touch of its 50-day moving average (1181) the entire stretch and managed to add 6 points.

INK Canadian Insider Index: is Bollinger bounce bullish?

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Last week, the Index bearishly broke below its 1180 support (which held strong since late March) as well as its lower Bollinger band at 1179, reaching an intraday low of 1163.90. However, the Index rose over 1% on Friday and mustered enough strength to close the week at 1182, regaining that key support level. The Index enjoyed a moral victory as it closed down just 4 points from the previous week.

Opinion: A BC Liberal government on May 9th is in the national and provincial interest

In my latest interview with Jim Goddard of Talk Digital Network, I highlight the high stakes at play in Tuesday's BC election. From resources to housing, the prosperity of the province, and to a lesser extent Canada, will be shaped by the outcome of the May 9th vote.

INK Canadian Insider Index Turned Back at 1200

Thank you for joining us in a weekly technical look at the mid-cap oriented INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Last week, the Index bounced as high as 1200, but was neither able hold steady there nor the 1190 level and finally submitted to a 3-point loss to end the proceedings at 1186.

Canadian prosperity on the line as Poloz plays with housing fire

In our most recent market update to clients and my regular interview with Kirk Lapointe on Monday, I explained that the Bank of Canada needs to start talking about normalizing interest rates, because the economy is now growing and the rationale for having ultra low rates is evaporating. Indeed, we saw insiders anticipate the recovery in Western Canada during last fall's rebalancing of the INK Canadian Insider Index when the index make-up tilted towards Energy and Canadian retail names.
