I Don’t Have Anything To Say About The Market Today

I Don’t Have Anything To Say About The Market Today

Every work day, I read the news, watch the market, write what I write, and I generally do it with a dispassionate, objective view. Some days, though, my dispassionate view is challenged, but I get past it. Other days, such as yesterday, I read about an action so cold, I cannot put my compassion away; I cannot look the other way. My objectivity goes out the window and I just want to scream....

TLT Is A Buying Opportunity

TLT Is A Buying Opportunity

Throughout 2014, trading U.S. bonds via the ETF, iShares Barclays 20+ Year Bond Fund (TLT), has been my go-to trade of the year. Following the breakout above the $105 level in the first quarter, the TLT has gone on to outperform the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) by 7.73% year to date, even after the end of the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing program this fall and the various Wall...

EWY Sets Up An Attractive Short Scenario

Among them, South Korean stocks appear to be on a precipice. EWY (iShares MSCI South Korea) offers a way to go short this market, a trade that could balance the risk of heavy, long exposure to U.S....

The S&P 500 Is Going To Crash

The S&P 500 Is Going To Crash

Yes, the headline is true, but knowing when it is going to crash is more important than if it is going to crash. We have seen four crashes in the last 16 years, so expecting it not to crash would just be silly. I have seen that headline over and over for the last four years. Some were quick to jump on the “I told you so” crash of 2010 or the big drop in 2011, but each huge drop was quickly...

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...

The Consumer May Be Feeling Better this Holiday Season

The Consumer May Be Feeling Better this Holiday Season

The holiday season is just around the corner. Traders and economic watchers will be closely watching the Retail Sector given the dismal turnout by consumers in recent years. The XRT (SPDR S&P Retail ETF) peaked in 2013 and since has traded sideways, until today.  There are clues that this year may be a different season for both the consumer and retailers alike, and traders will be...

Energy Insiders Are Buying, Should You?

Energy Insiders Are Buying, Should You?

Trying to call the bottom in crude oil right now is like trying to catch a falling knife.  The WTI crude oil spot-price was over $100 per barrel as recently as late July.  Today’s it’s below $80.  Energy stocks, as measured by the Energy Select SPDR ETF (XLE) have seen similar declines since late July. The fear of slowing demand from Europe and emerging markets combined with a surge of new...

Sentiment Extremes - Be Careful Buying the SPX

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. Using Sentiment When using sentiment as a gauge to make a...

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...

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.
