False Information, Mass Psychology & this Hated Stock Market Bull

False Information, Mass Psychology & this Hated Stock Market Bull

 Regarding today’s news, the average person is inundated with unnecessary junk. On any given day you will find experts telling you why the markets are destined to soar and or crash.  News outlets are desperate for eyeballs, so they are going out of their way to make titles bombastic, and or offering multiple scenarios so that when one of them comes to pass, they can proudly state we told you so. The problem is that in most cases the information used to back these scenarios is utter...

Oil and Gas Opposite Directions - The Energy Report 07/29/16

Oil and Gas Opposite Directions - The Energy Report 07/29/16

Oil prices dipped into a bear market as natural gas soared on the smallest inventory injection in a decade. Oil prices continue to feel the fallout from the Brexit as it has reduced demand expectations and sent the dollar soaring. Natural gas had seen selling pressure because of weakness in crude oil but could not ignore another huge miss on inventories raising concerns about the perception of adequate supply as we head into winter.  The Brexit vote was one of the major issues that I...

Is the Trend Really our Friend?

Is the Trend Really our Friend?

If I had a dollar for each time I’ve heard someone insinuate that trading should be as simple as identifying a trend then jumping on the bandwagon, I would be a wealthy woman.  Looking at a chart of crude oil falling from $100 to $26 per barrel, or the e-mini S&P peaking near 1,500 in 2007 and reaching 660 before finding a lasting bottom a few years later, one would assume being short these markets were easy trades producing massive wealth to speculators.  However, as they say—“The...

Greed and Fear: What Happens When a Carry Trade Goes Wrong?

Greed and Fear: What Happens When a Carry Trade Goes Wrong?

The Capital Market is a jungle, and everyone is on a hunt for yield. Every investor is trying to maximize the return and minimize the risk, that goes without saying. But what happens when the “safe” yields are at zero (or below)? As investors, our goal is to earn the highest yield possible, given our risk appetite. The more risk-averse we are, the less yield we can get, as our scope of our investment will be narrowed down to the “safest” assets, such as High Graded Government Bonds (US,...

August Upside Targets

August Upside Targets

SHORT-TERM (today and 5 days out) For Thursday, both 2166.75 and 2158.75 can firmly contain intraday activity, beyond which the next notable level is expected intraday. Downside today, breaking/opening below 2158.75 signals 2149.00, able to contain selling through Friday and above which the 2186.75-88.75 region remains a 3-5 day target. A settlement today below 2149.00 indicates a good weekly high, bearish continuation over the next 3-5 days then expected into the 2118.50 region where the...

Holiday Period: A Perfect Time To Hone Your Inner Trading Game

Holiday Period: A Perfect Time To Hone Your Inner Trading Game

A quick look at this week’s trading makes it abundantly clear: Most of the market players are away on holiday. Chances of being stopped out are higher than usual, as market makers can move the price around, quite easily hitting your stops. Trading is addictive. One of the greatest challenge for traders is to stay out of the markets when trading opportunities are thin, while remaining alert and focused ready for action when the right opportunity finally presents itself. Right now the...

Time to Sell E-Mini Premium

Time to Sell E-Mini Premium

Wednesday’s FOMC didn’t bring any surprises. I don’t think anyone was looking for action from the Fed, and the Fed lived up to that expectation.  But the tone of the Fed’s statement might have turned a bit more hawkish from the previous dovish announcements. The term “strengthened” made an appearance in describing the current labor market, probably referring to the addition of 287,000 jobs in the June jobs report. “Growing strongly” was used to describe current household spending, another...

A Simple Way to Improve Your Investment Result

A Simple Way to Improve Your Investment Result

Over the years, I’ve found that most investors believe that the process of achieving high returns tends to be through the process of addition. Everywhere you turn there is an advisor or commentator recommending that you buy one thing or another to add to your portfolio. What many investors don’t realize is that there are times when the process of subtraction can be a better strategy. In simple terms, the subtraction process means avoiding investments that are losers. To put this in...

Near-term resistance for German DAX

Near-term resistance for German DAX

Our post in early June about the DAX showed how the index might erase four years of growth during its next declining phase. However it is still too soon to be certain about the character of the decline – whether it will consist of a series of overlapping three-wave moves or will instead take an impulsive (non-overlapping) five-wave form. As a rule of thumb, the target of a retracement after coming out of a triangle is a retest of the middle area of the same triangle. In this case, it...

Zero Percent mortgages debut setting up the next stage for this Stock Market Bull

Zero Percent mortgages debut setting up the next stage for this Stock Market Bull

Although gold dust is precious, when it gets in your eyes it obstructs your vision. Hsi-Tang   Economists stated that main trigger for the financial crisis of 2008 was the issuance of mortgages that did not require down payments.  The ease at which one could get mortgages in the past is what drove housing prices to unsustainable levels. Post-crisis all banks vowed to end the practice forever, or that is what they wanted everyone to believe.   When the credit markets froze, we openly stated...
