US Stocks Jittery In Rumor Driven Trade

US Stocks Jittery In Rumor Driven Trade

Tuesday was a day filled with missed deadlines: Greece defaulted on a payment to the International Monetary Fund; the deadline for a nuclear deal with Iran passed without comment; and Russian and the Ukraine failed to reach agreement on sales of Russia gas, so the Ukraine may have to look elsewhere for heat this winter. Against that background the S&P 500 mini-futures made an...

Watch These 3 Nasdaq Trading Targets Now

Watch These 3 Nasdaq Trading Targets Now

The Nasdaq has been in “gap-hunt mode” for more than a month. These periods arise when there is a sufficient number of bears to create multi-day down moves. Due to the selling over the last few days, the Volume Profile Point of Control (VPPOC) has moved down almost 100 points since last Thursday. This will be the target for any bounce from these lower levels. The Upper and Lower Value Area...

Can US Stocks Stabilize After Greek Default?

Can US Stocks Stabilize After Greek Default?

The S&P 500 mini-futures (ES) went right in the tank yesterday (Monday) driven to the lowest level since April by what may be the final stage of the Greek debt crisis. Greece will officially default on a payment to the IMF today, the Eurozone has cut off funding, and Greek banks are close to collapse. The mini-futures gapped down 40 points at the Globex opening – the first chance traders...

Ignore the Noise from Greece and Everything Else

Ignore the Noise from Greece and Everything Else

I often talk about the need to focus on markets and the price action, ignoring the noise from the crowd.  Doing will often help you sidestep dangerous advice designed to twist your mind.  We can consider all the excuses or reasons for selling - there are a million of 'em - but at the end of the day it is the market action, the effect and not the cause that will be our guide.  The first step...

Grexit: Trigger For Big Stock Sell-Off?

Grexit: Trigger For Big Stock Sell-Off?

The Nasdaq reluctantly began the gap-fill process late Wednesday morning and headed for the red dotted lines on the chart. The gap fill was technically completed by the close on Thursday. This isn’t a difficult prediction to make, as the market has been in “gap-hunt mode” for more than a month. These periods arise when there is a sufficient number of bears to create multi-day down moves. ...

Don't Be Fooled: Look At This Stock Chart Now

Don't Be Fooled: Look At This Stock Chart Now

Time for us to brag a little. Earlier this week we cast doubt on the breathlessly-announced Greek debt deal, and predicted a decline in the S&P 500 mini-futures, the ES. Yesterday (Thursday) it all worked out pretty much as we expected. The alleged deal has disappeared, the euro summit that was supposed to ratify it has been cancelled, and the negotiators are working under stern...

Protect Profits: VIX Flashing Warning Signs

Protect Profits: VIX Flashing Warning Signs

The VIX as an indicator has been considered by many to be broken, but frankly that is just nonsense.  The indicator is doing what it is supposed to do, reflecting the positioning of option traders in the SPX 500 contract.  That bet is not always right, and we saw that recently.  A month ago when the market tanked following the Memorial Day someone went long volatility and bought a slew of...

Creative Visualization For Improved Trading Results

Creative Visualization For Improved Trading Results

Regular visualization is proven to improve performance by up to 10%. Professional athletes use it to improve performance, yet traders are for the most part unaware how this tool could have a positive impact on their trading results: At the beginning of this year I started working with a group of professional traders to help them improve their trading performance.  The group was given a novel...

Stocks: Oil Drop Offers Contrarian Play in OII

Stocks: Oil Drop Offers Contrarian Play in OII

The declining oil prices have taken a toll on virtually every oil producer and oilfield service provider in the past year since last July, although a recovery of oil prices is in the works. Oceaneering International (OII) is no exception. Its stock price has dropped over 30% from $70 to the current $47 range. I love finding fundamentally strong companies like these to trade because the risks...

3 Problem Trading Behaviors: How To Solve Them

3 Problem Trading Behaviors: How To Solve Them

It’s worth reminding ourselves that every trader is responsible for their trading actions and behavior. How we behave or act (i.e., what we do or don’t do) when trading will largely determine our trading success.  Here are 3 common day trading problems related to how traders act.  Left untamed, they will lead to failure.  All are within the control of the trader and can, therefore, be...

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.
