The Prattle Rattle, A Falling Dollar And A Rising GE?

The Prattle Rattle, A Falling Dollar And A Rising GE?

I did not see yesterday’s market slide coming, but today’s follow-through makes total sense. - U.S. funds mangers recommended a cut to equity allocations in April to their lowest since the financial crisis. It is a guess, but maybe, just maybe, a bit o’ panic is swirling around the street. Actually, we have seen this so many times since mid-2009, it should have a name – The Prattle Rattle....

Why The Australian Dollar Matters Now

Why The Australian Dollar Matters Now

In January and again in April, we showed we showed a potentially bearish path into the middle of 2016 and beyond for Australian stocks – a decline that we believe is linked to lowered expectations for China's economy and trade. Consistent with that view, the Australian Dollar appears ready to make a similar decline during the next year or longer. In the context of a larger decline that began...

More Dollar Deflation Coming?

More Dollar Deflation Coming?

The US dollar has declined sharply so far in 2016, losing about 5% of its value against a large basket of other global currencies.  That may seem substantial and often characterizes the health of the sovereign country's economy.  So, does it really mean the US economy is in decline?  Further, does it truly represent a decline in purchasing power and strength in the world - as it usually...

All About the (Unloved) Banks

All About the (Unloved) Banks

This past week the Financial sector did the heavy lifting. The financial ETF (XLF) far outperformed the main ETFs in technology, industrials, materials, energy, biotech… you name it. I consider this surge a significant development; one that bodes well for higher prices in the major indices, even though financials comprise the most unloved sector in the S&P. Here’s the backstory. In the...

Is The Fed Intent On Breaking The Middle Class?

Is The Fed Intent On Breaking The Middle Class?

One chart reveals Fed’s true intent; wreck havoc on the Middle Class   Crises refine life. In them, you discover what you are.Allan K. Chalmers What strikes one immediately is that the Fed has been creating money hand over fist; one hand they create money, with the other hand they buy assets and put it on their books, all looks well until you realize this is something called monetization of...

Trading Psychology: Be a Healthy Trader

Trading Psychology: Be a Healthy Trader

Most people would agree that being healthy is one of the most important things in your life, whatever your profession.  As a trader, you may have already experienced the stress that goes with trading.  In fact, trading is fraught with stress, and stress—especially the kind of chronic stress many traders are familiar with—can be very damaging to one’s health.  Chronic stress has been linked...

Is King Dollar Getting Demoted?

Is King Dollar Getting Demoted?

Since late 2014, the greenback has been the “talk of the town”.  In addition to dollar strength choking corporate earnings, it has played a big part in a commodity decline of historical proportion.  As a commodity broker, with a front row seat to the chaos, I can attest the currency market is perhaps the single most influential driver of asset prices.  The correlations between the dollar and...

Ride The Yen Waves For Profit

Ride The Yen Waves For Profit

In the weeks since our last post about USD/JPY futures, price has moved upward and slightly beyond our resistance target. That move provided a brief countertrend trading opportunity, and now it may be time to shop for another trade in concert with the larger downward trend. Viewing the overall decline from the Yen's 2011 high as an impulsive wave 'A', we believe the pattern has shifted into...

Trading Psychology: Waiting for an Ambush?

Trading Psychology: Waiting for an Ambush?

I have a question for you this week: When you are trading, do you feel like you are waiting to be ambushed? It wouldn’t surprise me if that’s the case because markets are highly random and difficult to predict, so active traders get ambushed all the time. An ‘ambush’ is when the market suddenly does something adverse and costly that you did not expect. It could be news driven or the result...

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.
