    Stock Market Today: Breakout or Breakdown for Bitcoin?

    It was a very quiet day in the stock market today, with the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average finishing close to flat on Thursday.The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA:SPY) fell 1 basis point, the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSEARCA:DIA) dropped 0.2% and the PowerShares QQQ ETF (NASDAQ:QQQ) rallied almost 0.2%.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWe've had a lot of news to digest lately, even though the stock market continues to chop around close to its high. The SPY ETF actually made a new all-time high on Thursday, albeit briefly.However, we've now seen significant moves in bonds, gold, high-growth tech stocks and have seen the S&P 500 break out of its August trading range. Further, investors heard from the Federal Reserve on Wednesday that it will cut interest rates. To top it all off, U.S.-China trade war headline risks are still possible.It's been a complex couple of weeks. It also has some investors wondering what asset class will make the next big move. Will it be bitcoin? Breakout or Breakdown for Bitcoin?Bitcoin bounced hard off its $9,600 lows today, but the charts do not look all that great. The cryptocurrency is below most of its major moving averages, with the exception of the 200-day. Worse though, it's making a series of lower highs as resistance squeezes it against support down near $9,360.This pattern is known as a descending triangle, a bearish technical setup where investors are looking for resistance to break the asset price below support. In this case, a break below $9,360 support could send bitcoin down to its 200-day moving average, currently near $8,000. * 8 Dividend Stocks to Buy for a Recession If bitcoin can hurdles its 20-day, 50-day and 100-day moving averages, as well as downtrend resistance -- which would require a move north of $10,500 presently -- then we have a breakout on our hands.The best setup for investors may be to wait and see which one comes first, and then place their respective trades. That's opposed to guessing whether it will breakout or breakdown.Investors can also trade bitcoin via the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (OTCMKTS:GBTC), shown below. Movers in the Stock Market TodayMicrosoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) stock hit new all-time highs after the company announced a $40 billion buyback plan and upped its dividend by 11% to 51 cents per share. While the payout remains stubbornly low -- yielding just under 1.5% -- keep in mind that MSFT stock is up nearly 150% over the past three years. In 2019 alone, it's up about 25%.It continues to lead mega-cap tech in market cap too, now trading with a $1.1 trillion valuation.Tesla's (NASDAQ:TSLA) Model 3 received the top safety rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. That's the first of Tesla's four vehicles to receive the designation, if we're including the original Roadster.Airbnb says the company will go public in 2020 after earlier announcing that it generated $2 billion in revenue in the second quarter. While there were rumblings of a 2019 IPO at one point, there's little surprise this one isn't coming this year. The lackluster response from the public for Uber (NYSE:UBER), Lyft (NASDAQ:LYFT), Slack (NYSE:WORK) and certainly We didn't help matters.Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) tumbled more than 13% on Wednesday and was set for another nauseating run on Thursday. In pre-market trading, shares were down more than 5% at one point. However, after the company announced several new streaming products, shares ended the day higher, climbing 3% on Thursday. Let's see if the recent lows can stick. Otherwise, this may just be a dead-cat bounce before more lows are made. Splitting Up?According to reports, AT&T (NYSE:T) is reportedly weighing whether to divest its DirecTV unit. This could come via spinoff or potentially a combination with Dish Network (NASDAQ:DISH). AT&T acquired the asset in 2015 for nearly $50 billion.The asset generates solid cash flow for AT&T, but with its bloated balance sheet and the continual loss of subscribers due to cord-cutting, DirecTV is a business that investors bemoan. AT&T has since said it's not considering the move, but shares still rallied roughly 1% on the day.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

    5 Top Stock Trades for Friday: GOGO, BABA, TGT

    The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA:SPY) hit a new 52-week high in Thursday's session, but did not do so with overwhelming confidence. We'll have to see how the action shakes out over the next few days and weeks, after the Fed cut rates on Wednesday. Here are our top stock trades. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 1: GogoDid this trade in Gogo (NYSE:GOGO) pay off or what? We highlighted it in early September as a top stock trade and these Twitter traders crushed it too.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 CBD Stocks to Buy That Are Still Worth Your Investment Dollars Shares are finally taking a breather. I want to see if the $6 level will now act as support. There it will find prior resistance and the 50-week moving average. If it does and GOGO takes out this week's high, a run to $8+ is on the table.Below $6 and Gogo will need some time to reset. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 2: AlibabaThis was another one we highlighted earlier this month, as Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) approached $179 to $180 resistance.With uptrend support creating a series of higher lows, this ascending triangle was prepped for a breakout. On Thursday we got that breakout, but BABA stock failed to hold much of its gains on the day.Investors now need to see if $179 to $180 will act as support. If it does, they need to see BABA then take out Thursday's highs. If it fails as support, it very well could be a failed breakout, in which case the 20-day moving average and uptrend support become the must-hold levels. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 3: TargetTarget (NYSE:TGT) stock continues to show impressive relative strength since reporting blowout earnings in mid-August, which is why I'm looking for it to be a market leader going forward.Shares are being buoyed by the 20-day moving average and are putting in a series of higher lows. I'm looking for a breakout over $110 now. Over $110.94 -- the prior highs -- and TGT can really gain some momentum. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 4: U.S. SteelU.S. Steel (NYSE:X) is keeping up the ugliness, falling more than 10% on the day.The silver lining is that shares are rallying off the lows. But with so many bearish trends, it's hard to get excited about this one. If X breaks its lows from last month, a plunge into no man's land could be next.This name doesn't excite me until it's over $13.50. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 5: Monster BeverageWe were looking for this one to "go" earlier this month, but each time Monster Beverage (NASDAQ:MNST) has fizzled out on its breakout attempt.The plus side is that it continues to put in higher lows, as uptrend support squeezes it higher. Let's see if shares can take out last week's highs near $59.56. If it can, the 50-day moving average and $60.50 are the next upside targets. * 8 Dividend Stocks to Buy for a Recession On the downside, see that MNST doesn't fall below $57.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

    U.S. equity markets and stock ETFs faltered but tried to regain their step after the Federal Reserve cut interest rates and provided an uncertain outlook for the rest of the year. On Wednesday, the Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ) was down 0.1%, SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA) rose 0.1% and  SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) was flat. The equity markets slipped late Wednesday after the Fed's murky guideline on their next move, citing ongoing "uncertainties” about the outlook and pledging to “act as appropriate” to sustain the expansion, Reuters reports.
