Treat Stock Market With Caution: Downside Risk Bigger Than Upside

Treat Stock Market With Caution: Downside Risk Bigger Than Upside

SPX: A market in chains; won’t go up, and not allowed to fall There’s a wonderful jazz tune that talks about “a love that cannot live, yet never dies.” That’s a fair description of the US equity markets these days. The S&P 500 ($SPX), the cash index of large US companies, closed at 2164.69 last Friday, up 25.53 points for a 1.19% net weekly gain. Sounds good, right? But this is a...

Crude Oil - Bull Market Correction

Crude Oil - Bull Market Correction

Crude gained $1.45/bbl. last week closing at 44.48 even after a $1.84 loss on Friday. Since the August high, crude looks like a descending triangle (bearish). The upper trendline passes through 46.75 this week. Support is at 43.25. A break of support opens the door for a decline to 38.25. The weekly Coppock Curve did confirm the June high so look for higher highs in the future. However, new...

This week, we’ll look at the technical action...

Swing Trading in Commodities

Swing Trading in Commodities

Conventional wisdom suggests that “the trend is your friend” but in my opinion, there is evidence to suggest although this is true in some cases, it is a false statement a majority of the time.  In fact, on average a trend trading strategy involves higher risks per trade and a lower percentage of winners than most trading strategies.  Only those with extremely deep pockets, nerves of steel,...

They want to steepen the curve.The latest FED and BOJ meeting were no surprise. Yellen and Kuroda did exactly what everyone thought they would.

Use Weekly Options To Play Crude Oil

Use Weekly Options To Play Crude Oil

The weather was pretty good for most of the season, just a few patches of high heat, and it never real felt stifling. One other thing that real never spiked was the price of gas over the summer. That is a pleasant memory. Crude oil...

Last Monday’s WASDE report had the USDA confirm much of the bearish chatter in the market, which was yield above trend and expectations in at 50.6 bushels per acre, up 2.6 bushels from last month’s report. Production came in at a whopping 4.2 billion bushels. Both yield and production are both all time records. There was some bullish news on the crop report with old crop ending stocks coming...

Has The Fed Lost Its Credibility?

Has The Fed Lost Its Credibility?

One official hike last December, one stealth hike over the past 3 monthsOn Wednesday the FOMC meets. More importantly, the Bank of Japan meets, and there's considerably more uncertainty about the policy path regarding that meeting. However, since the result of the BoJ meeting will be known by the time of publication, let's stick with the Fed. I don't expect any change in rates and the...

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.
