Groundhog Day from Last Week to This Week

Last week I said we need a wash & rinse after another yoyo week, and what we got was … another yoyo week! Optimal conditions will return, and for now the lot of the swing-trader is to sit tight and be extra vigilant with any trades you do make. It’s not that money can’t be […]

Safe Setups For Current Conditions

The S&P and Dow are both making new highs, but extended stock setups still pose dangers. The safest setup right now is a consolidation above a Key Level where the OVI is corroborating with a bullish sentiment. Earnings has been mixed, with pre-earnings being higher risk this time around.  Last summer it was a breeze, […]

Apple Epitomizes Current Conditions

When you look at Apple you see the dilemma we’ve been encountering with many stocks over the past few months. A seemingly no-brainer breakout, backed up by positive fundamentals, but which then pulls back to create a false breakout. Of course this isn’t playing out everywhere, but more than we’d typically expect, and more than […]

How To Trade in These Conditions

The markets still look bullish by and large, but they remain tricky to trade due to the prevalence of false breakouts and steep retracements. We’re also in earnings season, which adds another layer of risk, though again by and large it looks like we’re in for a largely positive crop of announcements. The big question […]

Look What Just Arrived Today!

Well, this was a nice start to my day … A rather nice and useful package of WiseTraders branded goodies arrived on my doorstep this morning, and I’ve heard that a number of others have also landed today. Great news! Here’s what’s inside: A USB power bank for your mobile devices Four double-sided laminated cheat-sheets […]

Focus on Stocks Hugging Those Key Levels

A two day recovery across the board shows exactly why this market is so treacherous.  The trends simply aren’t getting a chance to set their roots. That’s not to say there haven’t been decent breakouts … there have.  But they have been outnumbered by false breakouts. So, what to do? First, this is not a […]

A Market Punctuated by Steep Retracements

Last week’s bulletin was titled: << ‘Mixed’ Market Reaches New Highs >> And that turned out to be a pretty accurate way to phrase it … Because while the S&P and Dow were reaching new highs, we were still seeing steep retracements and decent setups were forming false breakouts and whipsaws. So, ultimately not the […]

Choppy Market Provides Setups for Put Options

This choppy market is providing setups in both directions. Remember, when stocks are falling we can profit by buying put options.  And we can do that in the simplest way to ensure safety without any complications.  Puts provide the safest and best way to profit from bearish conditions as you only have limited risk with […]

This Market Demands Safety First Approach

A slightly choppy week in a market where the vast majority of high quality stocks are miles away from their Key Levels. This means we’ve been fishing a bit more around the lower cap stocks, which can be fine, but it’s not my sweetest of sweet spots. That said, you can find some absolute gems […]

Oil, Finance and Biotech Lead the Markets Higher

Another week, another innovation we release … and plenty more will follow shortly! The great thing about the new Fast Filter search function is that it enables you to manage as many combinations as you like with easy access. For example, there are two distinct OVI filters I want to identify in my Post-Earnings Fast […]
