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...

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...

NVDA is Clearly Best in Class

NVDA is Clearly Best in Class

NVIDIA is one of the best performing stocks in 2016 and there seems no letting up.  After a couple of stellar earnings reports in February and May this company has defied the odds and any market selloff to lift to levels not seen in years.  The impressive run has been on very strong turnover, what we like to see when a stock shows tremendous power.  We can see from the lower pane the...

The entire gaming sector got a boost today due to a report from the ratings agency Fitch.  Fitch Ratings forecasts solid revenue trends for casino-hotel properties on the Las Vegas Strip as non-gaming amenities continues to drive growth.  Properties on the Las Vegas Strip now generate more than 60% of their profit from non-gaming amenities. Fitch says the trend supports the view that Strip...

Get Ready to Trade Apple Earnings

Get Ready to Trade Apple Earnings

AAPL’s earnings always generate a huge discussion and they affect any traders. As you likely know, AAPL is one of my favorite stocks to trade and trade. I often post my analysis pre-earnings here, just for you on TraderPlanet! In this particular earnings gap, I’ll be slightly surprised if AAPL  gaps more than 10%,  now that AAPL is an official ‘blue chip, dividend paying’ stock. Here are my...

Another Reason This Bull Market Will Not Buckle Soon

Another Reason This Bull Market Will Not Buckle Soon

A champion is afraid of losing. Everyone else is afraid of winning.Billie Jean King  Over 50% of Americans don’t have enough money to invest in stocks; a scary statistic for a country that claims to be the only superpower left in the world. It makes one wonder at what cost are we maintaining this superpower status when from an economic perspective we appear closer to a third world nation....

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...

Chicago: It Might Be Time To Get Out Of Town

Chicago: It Might Be Time To Get Out Of Town

Chicago, that toddlin’ town. Bet your bottom dollar you’ll lose the blues. And maybe your house.   The dwindling number of people who still live in Cook County, Illinois —  essentially the city of Chicago —  got their property tax bills a couple of weeks ago. Boy, are they pissed. Too bad for them, did I hear you say? Well stick around, because the combination of fiscal mismanagement,...

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...

An IBM Earnings Trade

An IBM Earnings Trade

IBM has had a rough go of it lately on earnings.  When I say a rough time, I am being nice.  Seven out of the last eight reports have resulted in down days and the one day it was not down…it was up a whopping $0.01! The only thing is that the chart looks strong and tech has been mostly positive as of late.  We don’t want to play straight to the downside.  If we can have our cake and eat it...
