When the Experts Just Don't Know!

When the Experts Just Don't Know!

When the market move to extremes (up or down) we often search for the counsel of someone who can offer some advice, or at the very least put some sense on the moves.  Yet, with the enormous moves up, down and then back up again just in the last six weeks we still find ourselves searching for answers.  Even the ones 'in the know' are dumbfounded.  This is why the market action will give you all the answers you need to create a picture of forward progress.  I'm not trying to spin bullish...

Crude Oil Stuck In Two Week Trading Range

Crude Oil Stuck In Two Week Trading Range

September Crude Oil grinded lower on Thursday, July 21, 2016 making a new low for the week at 44.52 but it was unable to get below the 44.42 low established on July 11th. Crude Oil is still in its 2 week trading range and it would take a close below 44.31 (the 21 WMA) to create a path to 41.64 (the 50 WMA), in my opinion. Support on the daily chart comes in at 44.26 (the 100 DMA) and then 43.03 (the May 10 low) and 42.50 (the April 26 low). Crude did make an attempt during the Wednesday...

Watch This resistance in Euro Stoxx 50

Watch This resistance in Euro Stoxx 50

We have been watching for lower highs and signs of downward continuation in European stock indices this summer. Consistent with our recent forecasts for the London FTSE and the German DAX, we also see a potentially bearish pattern developing in the Euro Stoxx 50 Index. The index includes 50 of the most liquid stocks throughout the Eurozone and comprises a majority of the market capitalization in the Eurozone, making it a good barometer for the region as a whole. Unlike the FTSE and the...

Collect Premium: Play An E-Mini Strangle

Collect Premium: Play An E-Mini Strangle

The strong upside move in the equity markets has not slowed down this week. We continue to see new highs put in the market without much resistance. The S&P seems to still be embracing the low interest rate environment.  I’m not quite sure if there is anything out there right now that will keep a cap on the market over the next few weeks. I’ve stated previously that I think there will be a correction of some sort, some time down the road.  My gut feeling is that it will occur in late...

Is Your Morning Coffee Robbing Your Retirement?

Is Your Morning Coffee Robbing Your Retirement?

A little and a little, collected together, becomes a great deal; the heap in the barn consists of single grains, and drop and drop make the inundation.  Saadi Towards the end of last year, we published an article titled  Americans favour coffee to stock market investing where we demonstrated that an overwhelming majority drink coffee as opposed to investing in the stock market’ 61% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis as opposed to the 48% that invest in the market. On aannual...

Characteristics of Winning Small Caps Before They Make Their Explosive Moves

Characteristics of Winning Small Caps Before They Make Their Explosive Moves

Most of the small caps that performed the best included the following characteristics:  Healthy markets in an uptrend, part of an industry group leading the market and superior fundamentals and technicals.   Although many winners had weak fundamentals and strong technicals, such as biotech, and some had strong fundamentals and weak technicals, your odds for profitable trades improve when you have a small cap that has both strong fundamentals and technicals. For fundamentals, the obvious...

Two Important Reasons Why Option Traders Fail

Two Important Reasons Why Option Traders Fail

Options.  They’re supposed to deliver you 1000% returns overnight, week after week right? That’s what a lot of these internet trading “gurus” will tell you anyway…  But the reality is far different. Options are a zero-sum game. When one person wins, another loses. The winners are few. First you have the highly efficient market makers. These guys set market prices through their expertise in the Black-Scholes model used to derive an option’s price. They win in the long-term by controlling...

All The Indicators Say Stocks Should Be Going Down

All The Indicators Say Stocks Should Be Going Down

And yet… Everything seems to say this market should be going down… and yet… price is always the final arbiter. July through October is a seasonally bullish period of the year for the VIX. The VIX closed last Friday at 12.02. The last time the VIX was below 13.00 was last August just before the S&P 500 declined over 11.00%… and yet… Sentiment is at an extreme. The CNN Fear & Greed index is at 83 which is a level described as “extreme greed”. The NAAIM Exposure index is at 96 which...
