Vermilion Research

Vermilion Research delivers timely, actionable, and unique research inputs to professional investors. Our research strategists highlight securities which we believe are at major inflection points, based on our various proprietary technical indicators, and offer asymmetric risk/return profiles. We believe our research methodology, which is not limited by industry sector or market capitalization, enables us to deliver superior investment recommendations.

Our process begins by organizing all actively traded stocks into coherent sectors, then into logical industry groups. We then apply our proprietary relative strength tools to identify developing price trends. Once attractive trends are identified within a selected sectors or groups, we screen for individual stocks which we believe offer the best risk/reward profile. Vermilion offers U.S. and global equity market research products. Vermilion’s research team, which has received numerous awards and accolades, has a combined 70 year of experience in the analysis of investment securities.

Vermilion Int'l Compass: Global Equity Strategy

ACWI, ACWI ex-US Near Support; Inflation Peaking? Broad global MSCI equity indexes (ACWI, ACWI ex-US, EAFE, and EM) remain bearish with YTD downtrends intact, while indexes in Japan, Hong Kong, China, Europe, and Germany all remain below key resistance levels (more on that below). Many are now near support, and we could see a bear market bounce, but until these indexes reverse their downtrends and break above resistance levels, we cannot be bullish. On a positive note, we are starting to see si...

Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

Downgrading Materials to Market Weight We remain bearish as long as the YTD downtrends remain intact on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 (QQQ), and as long as the 7.5-month downtrend remains intact on the Russell 2000 (IWM). There is potential for a bounce given the S&P 500, QQQ, and IWM are all at downtrend channel supports, but until we see reversals of the aforementioned downtrends, we view any rally as nothing more than another bear market bounce. U.S. Dollar, 10-Yr Treasury Yield, and WTI Crude...

Int'l Insights: Bullish Stocks

Buy Gold And The Gold Miners · Gold Price. The price of gold remains on bullish short- and long-term trajectories with the uptrend that began in 2018 still intact. Short-term, gold is holding above base support near $1680 and we see the 2011 highs of $1900 as an achievable target price in the coming months. · We believe gold miners are likely to benefit from continued higher gold prices. The VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) depicts this opportunity, as current prices are of...

Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

Market In “Wait-And-See” Phase We started to see waning upside momentum in the S&P 500 last week with the rising wedge breakdown and 2760 support level violation on Tuesday. Despite this, there was no downside follow through the following day as investors digested a new $484B fiscal relief package. This led to the S&P 500 finding support at 2725-2735 which leads us to where we are now -- testing recent highs. We see waning upside momentum and several aspects continue to suggest the S&P 500 ...
