Use Moving Averages To Cash In On Stock Profits

Hello traders from around the globe. I hope you are swell. Just got back from an incredible trip to Denver. Had the privilege to spend some time with many real life traders! The weather was much colder than it is here in Nashville. In today’s article, I just want to share some other moving averages that I use on all of my swing trade analysis. When I swing trade I focus mostly on the daily...

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...

Are U.S. 10-Year Notes Turning Negative?

Are U.S. 10-Year Notes Turning Negative?

TNX (the yield on the 10 year, US Treasury note) fell 3.65% to close at 18.19 on the 30-dma last week. Look for a bounce with equities early this week but don’t expect it to be sustained as the daily Coppock is still high enough to expect a top, not a bottom. Resistance is near 20.00. Look for support at Friday’s close. A break of this level opens the door for a return to the April low near...

Warning! S&P 500 Chart Has Similar Pattern As 2008

We often look at charts to find recognizable and repeatable patterns, hoping to take notice of a previous move that may have a high probability of happening again.  In the universe of technical analysis, there are a plethora of technical patterns with setups for both bullish and bearish plays.  You can find a nice sampling of those below.  But the important takeaway from the analysis is to...

What The Puerto Rico Debt Default Means For US Stocks

What The Puerto Rico Debt Default Means For US Stocks

Puerto Rico defaulted on its debt yesterday, the first of what will be a series of defaults for the US territory. The effect on US equities – so far – has been invisible to the naked eye. Puerto Rico is America's Greece: burdened by a debt it has no hope of repaying, and unable to get a deal with its creditors because there is no legal structure available to declare bankruptcy, Congress is...

Is Inflation Coming Back For Real This Time?

Is Inflation Coming Back For Real This Time?

If we were to point to one mystery in our economy it is the lack of inflation.  Let it be known the Fed has been doing everything possible to stoke some inflation fans but it hasn't been working.  We have to go back to Ben Bernanke's reign as Fed chief to find where this effort first started, and even Janet Yellen seems frustrated about the lack of price increases in the economy.  Deflation...

Does Market Share Matter?

Does Market Share Matter?

- Samsung, in contrast to Apple, reported a 14 percent rise in net profit on strong sales of its new Galaxy S7 smartphones. How about that Samsung? Picking up where Apple fell off. Market share. How about that FB? Mobile ads? Note: My teen and his friends think FB is stupid. Snap Chat and Instagram for them. - Wall Street opened lower on Thursday after the Bank of Japan stunned markets by...

Apple Is The Talk Of The Town

Apple Is The Talk Of The Town

Oil up, Apple down, the market up, and the Fed remains on the sidelines, or so we are told. Of the three, Apple is by far the most interesting reality. - Apple tumbled more than 8% before the bell Wednesday after reporting its first year-on-year sales decline in 13 years. Apple is a fine company, and it has produced innovative and quality products for as long as it has been around, but...

Should Investors Bet on Red Rock Resorts’ (RRR) IPO?

Should Investors Bet on Red Rock Resorts’ (RRR) IPO?

Last week, there were three IPOs to successfully price, which seemed liked an onslaught of new deals, considering how dormant the IPO market has been this year. Nevertheless, this was a step in the right direction, especially since two of those IPOs saw fairly strong demand. One of those IPOs that had a solid debut was MGM Growth Properties (MGP), a spin-off from MGM Resorts (MGM), which...

Mitsubishi, Volkswagen Bad, Nike and Market Golden?

Mitsubishi, Volkswagen Bad, Nike and Market Golden?

Not much to say about the market. It is in la-la land for now – The Fed, earnings, oil, historical highs, the global outlook, and opposing chart patterns all playing in the head at the same time makes for the la-la. A white room with white soft cushions everywhere and all will be fine. Shhhhhh … A couple of months ago, more than few chartists were forecasting the end of the second longest...

Big Opportunity In Apple Earnings Play

Big Opportunity In Apple Earnings Play

Apple (AAPL) used to be the apple of everyone’s eye.  You could not go wrong.  Just close your eyes, hit buy on your brokerage platform and collect the cash.  That’s not necessarily the case now.  The iWatch is being characterized by some as a total flop, waning iPhone sales have been a drag, new competition, you name it.  How quickly global sentiment has changed.  If you were listening to...

Bad Choices and Shifting Direction – Intel and Saudi Arabia

Bad Choices and Shifting Direction – Intel and Saudi Arabia

Sometimes, big companies make bad decisions. Just ask Xerox (XRX) about its decision regarding personal computers in the late 1970s – bad choice – or maybe ask Intel (INTC) about deciding to rely on desktop computers for their future, say, 10 years ago. - The rate at which Intel makes technological advances suddenly seems to be slowing, and other looming trends, including artificial...
