Dow Bull Not Ready To Crash Yet

Dow Bull Not Ready To Crash Yet

Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy.Saadi Okay, okay, we have heard it before; this market should crash, everything is fake, etc.  We are as we have spoken many times over the past two years in a new paradigm. Reality is being recreated; this entire economic recovery is a hoax but despite this, the markets have soared higher.  What gives? If you manipulate the...

Is Apple Stock (AAPL) Worth Buying?

Is Apple Stock (AAPL) Worth Buying?

The fifteen percent plunge in Apple stock price is all the news lately as most journalists have concentrated on the dramatic size loss of market capitalisation. This of course will always happen when you’re talking about an elephant with a market cap of over $600B before its recent drop. However, as long term investors and swing traders, these are the opportunities we patiently wait for,...

EuroSTOXX Upward Correction Finished?

EuroSTOXX Upward Correction Finished?

Along with the German DAX and the London FTSE, for which we posted charts in January and March, we also like to monitor the EuroSTOXX 50 Index for a view on the health of European equity. The Euro STOXX 50 Index is composed of 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 zone as...

AIG, Wrong, Oil Maybe Right, Expansion Is The Bet

AIG, Wrong, Oil Maybe Right, Expansion Is The Bet

Back when I was, well, less “smart” about the market, a man on TV, an entertainer, a talking head said AIG was undervalued. It was a buy. Yup, the same AIG that required a $182-billion bailout. Oops! "Oil is the most important thing in this market. Oil going to $50 is going to move the DOW." Jim Cramer was wrong about AIG before the crash. Maybe today he is right oil goes to $50, but it is...

Equity ETFs get a jump on the “Sell in May”

Equity ETFs get a jump on the “Sell in May”

Over the last week Equity ETFs have seen some of the largest outflows of the year, and got a jump on the “sell in May” phenomenon.  Equity ETFs have lost an astounding -$8.4B in assets in just 5 days.  SPY (SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust), the largest ETF by assets, was the biggest contributor to the outflows, representing 45% of the week’s outflows.  Here are top equity ETFs that led the...

Gold And Silver: Backing And Filling After New 2016 High

Gold And Silver: Backing And Filling After New 2016 High

Both the Gold and Silver markets continued their upward surge last week with both markets posting their best gains and new 2016 highs to end the week on Friday April 29th. The impressive range up action in my view has been the result of ongoing weakness in the Dollar. It is also worth noting that there is growing concern that a soaring Yen due to continued financial concerns has also pushed...

An Objective View of SPX and NDX

An Objective View of SPX and NDX

The stock market had a lackluster finish to the week last week.  So is the pullback over?  Or is it just beginning?  Here’s the important price levels that will give you that answer. The S&P 500 index is again testing into the zone of support at 2041 – 2059.  Any breach of 2041 would be a signal of a larger bearish shift taking place.  On any rally attempt, there remains resistance at...

But there’s an old trick traders have used for years to change their perspective on a trade, and give them an edge in...

Sit Tight, Folks Are Flying, And Oracle Goes Big Energy

Sit Tight, Folks Are Flying, And Oracle Goes Big Energy

If nothing else, the market is consistent in its inconsistency. One can depend on the market to be inconsistent. The reason is simple – the Market R Us. We the people are the market and we the people are irrational beings when it comes to money (and love I hear). We can act like a herd of horses stampeding of a cliff when the media fires a gun above our heads. My point? Recognize this and...

Should You Double Down On A Trade?

Should You Double Down On A Trade?

To roll or not to roll, that is the question.  I get this a lot in our room.  Invariably, it is when an expiring position is not working out for us.  “What can we do with our position in XYZ?  Can we cost average in?”  You name it.  A gambler calls it “doubling down”, a trader calls it “cost averaging”.  I don’t care what you call it, it’s the same thing.  There is nothing wrong with...
