2015 Is Coming, Where Will The Market Go

2015 Is Coming, Where Will The Market Go

November and December are usually pretty good months for the equity markets. Thanksgiving gives the market a boost, and there is normally a “Santa Claus” rally to carry into the end of the year. But there are only 30 trading days left until 2015. What's likely to happen in the rest of 2014? Our best guess: nothing much. Back in the spring, we calculated the top for this year would come in...

Energy Insiders Are Buying, Should You?

Energy Insiders Are Buying, Should You?

The fear of slowing demand from Europe and emerging markets combined with a surge of new...

Sentiment Extremes - Be Careful Buying the SPX

The SPX (S&P 500 Index) has been on a very wild ride lately. When most were expecting the rally in early September to go on forever, sentiment was telling a different story. As a matter of fact, it was suggesting to get short, as investor sentiment was at extreme bullish readings, which we noted in this TraderPlanet article.

Define Risk On Crude Oil Play With Options

Define Risk On Crude Oil Play With Options

The markets have calmed down a bit from last week, but there is still a cloud of uncertainty hanging overhead. The equity markets have done quite a job of getting back most of the recent sell off. Last week the S&P 500 had a nearly 120 point range from Monday to Thursday, with a 50 point range on Thursday alone. The market closed up 30 points from the low on Thursday, which may have...

Oil May Not Be Done Going Down Just Yet

Oil May Not Be Done Going Down Just Yet

The United States Oil Fund LP (USO), a crude oil ETF, is down 22.54% from the highs of 2014. This turn has taken place over the last four months amidst a rally in the PowerShares DB U.S. Dollar Index Bullish ETF (UUP) in the same time period. An end to the Fed’s Quantitative easing program and hints at a rate hike in 2015 are the likely cause for the price action we’ve seen in the U.S....

Trading Psychology: Stay Calm When The Fastballs Fly

Trading Psychology: Stay Calm When The Fastballs Fly

A client of mine sent me a bio yesterday on Rod Dedeaux, who was the baseball coach for USC for 45 seasons. Dedeaux was a legendary leader, chalking up more national titles and wins (1332) than any other coach of his day. 200 of his players went on to play professional ball. Dedeaux neither lost his temper nor disrespected or denigrated anyone. He cultivated the ability to befriend,...

Gold Bulls Could Pause Ahead Of Fed Meeting

Gold Bulls Could Pause Ahead Of Fed Meeting

The gold market has posted impressive price action in the past few weeks in the face of a rising U.S. dollar and in this week's case a major rebound in U.S. stock indices. See Figure 1 below. The gold market made a double bottom a few weeks back at the $1182-83 area from last December. Gold’s rebound, in my view, is largely due to safe-haven buying due to the lack in confidence in fiat...

S&P 500: Use Past Patterns To Predict Future Market Moves

S&P 500: Use Past Patterns To Predict Future Market Moves

Humans are creatures of habit and that is why history will almost always repeat at some time in the future. The same holds true for our financial system as well as the stock market. I have always been a big “fractal pattern” believer and do a lot of my research for future direction, based off of a similar pattern that has happened in the past. History will mimic, but not repeat exactly for...

For Phase I of Markets re-design, we are introducing simple OHLC bar charts with a volume histogram.

To adjust the period and scale of the chart, use the "slider" bar which appears underneath the Volume histogram frame. If the slider frame is not appearing, you may need to adjust the 'Zoom' view of your internet browser or adjust your screen resolution to a lower resolution.

By dragging the start and end arrows of the slider bar to the left and right, you can easily adjust the date range.

Features planned for Phase II will include a selection of chart types and a technical indicator library with the ability to define a custom date range for the chart data.
