Catch The Next Flight On Boeing?

Catch The Next Flight On Boeing?

The market’s relationship with oil is unhealthy. I am thinking codependence, addiction, and delusion. Alcoa reports bad news, a majority of Brits are looking to leave the EU, and both the European and U.S. markets are up, as is oil, some 3.5% BTW.  Britain could deal a damaging blow to the fragile global economy if it votes to leave the European Union, the International Monetary Fund said in...

TSLA Analysis - What you Need to Know

Nickola Tesla was a quirky genius and a very poor businessman. Elon Musk is a quirky genius and his business acumen is improving in tandem with the vehicles his company is producing. Tesla Motors has been faulted by analysts recently due to its delay in getting cash flow positive. In mid-March, however, the company drew rave reviews from a group of analysts who made a site visit. They...

Trading 101: How To Use A Stop Limit Order (And Win!)

Hello fine folks of the inter-webs! I had a few emails recently from newer traders inquiring about stop limit orders. I figured, sounds like a great topic for an article! The question: What is a stop limit order and how does it help me in trading? Stop limit orders function in two ways. When exiting a trade (the most familiar) and when entering a trade. It’s pretty common place that active...

Subprime Makes A Comeback; Auto Loan Crisis Is Here

Subprime Makes A Comeback; Auto Loan Crisis Is Here

A great calamity is as old as the trilobites an hour after it has happened. Oliver Wendell Holmes Greed and recklessness continue to govern the markets; nothing was learned from the 2008 financial crisis. Hence, history is destined to repeat itself, and this might occur a lot faster than most anticipate.  Fitch states that Subprime Auto bond delinquencies are at a 20 year high. Take a look...

Don't Make This Option Trading Mistake!

Don't Make This Option Trading Mistake!

I wanted to talk to you today about what is known in the options world as “pin risk”.  It’s not something that comes up often in our live signal room but it is a concept you need to be aware of.   “Pin risk” is the risk that an options trader has when an expiring options contract expires at or very near the strike.  If you are long an option at the strike, pin risk is very easy to deal...

Will Oil Prices Rise This Upcoming Week ?

Will Oil Prices Rise This Upcoming Week ?

This week alone has seen an increase in oil prices of roughly 5% - 6% and the speculation is that the price increase is all based on the upcoming OPEC meeting in Doha on the 17th of April where the oil producing nations will meet to discuss freezing prices on oil.  Regardless of whether these oil producing nations agree or not, it may have very little effect on the overall price of oil.  The...

Market Up, Market Down, GM Beating Tesla?

Volatility, really? The VIX (fear gauge) is still in the 15 zone, gold is going nowhere, and the market is sluggishly trending up. So, what do we have to fear? Wall Street will have a new distraction from the unpredictable whims of crude oil prices in the coming week as first-quarter earnings season begins. “The earnings are coming!

What About Gold?

What About Gold?

Gold was the best performing asset class in the first quarter of 2016 and the pros are muttering about a new bull market in the yellow metal. What’s piqued my interest, however, is that the gold rally began when the general equity market tanked on the first trading day of the year, but it didn’t falter once the S&P 500 hit bottom in mi-February. The inverse relationship between equities...
