What’s New? Everything! But It’s Evolution, Not Revolution …

More gyrations in the markets last week as we now embark on earnings season. We now have something to really sink our teeth into. While I love my pre-earnings strategy, my main focus this time around will be straddles (ie playing volatility) and post-earnings. There’s a good chance of large moves as the nonsense of the last couple […]

Pause For Breath But Keep Observing

Another choppy, news-driven week in the markets which is not optimal for our style or purposes … So with earnings coming in just a few weeks anyway, I thought we’d just observe the markets this week because more optimal conditions will come around soon enough. This is also a huge lesson in trading our particular […]

Greetings from NYC – New Setups and Essential Trade Management

Greetings from New York where I’m having a number of meetings but sadly not enough leisure time for my liking in such a wonderful city! With the markets creeping back up to their highs, there are several decent OVI and flag opportunities out there (plus some real gems!) but in today’s review I must emphasize […]

Four Week Range Broken As Predicted

Last week I suggested that the 4-week rangebound nature of the main indices would be likely to be broken soon … and they duly were on Thursday. Now this was mainly common sense through experience rather than some sort of mystical capabilities! –  Last week was the first after the summer holidays, –  The indices […]

Four Week Range Likely to be Broken Soon

After Monday the summer holidays are officially over, and the main indices are likely to break their 4-week range within a week or two. Quite what the catalyst and decisive direction will be is still up for grabs, and continued volatility is a reasonable guess to make. But whatever happens, remember that being patient is […]

Patience is Where The Money Is Made

It’s like Groundhog Day! This week will sound much like the last few weeks. Yet another choppy week means we still have to be patient, but this is exactly where the money is made. Because we know exactly what we’re looking for, we can focus on “Trading What We See” … and right now what […]

Be Patient – Earnings Has Only Just Begun

Well that was a bit of a damp squib of a first week of earnings, but be patient, it’s only just begun and there’s plenty of time for the fun to begin. Microsoft gapped up before coming straight back down for a marginal gain, while Netflix gapped down and is a couple of bars from […]

OVI Seems to Anticipate Positive China Trade Talks Outcome

Here we are at the halfway point for the year … Earnings is just two weeks away and this recent news-driven market is potentially on the cusp of making its mind up to reach for new highs. Now, we do live in slightly curious times where even one sniff of news can impact the market […]

A Good Trading Week and Massive Changes

It’s been a good week for the major indices and most of my recent regular stocks, and I know from many OVI members that it’s been a good week for them too! More about that in a moment … Major OVI tech advances It’s also been a splendid week for us in the OVI tech […]

Strong Upward Reversal But Challenges Remain

Last week I mentioned that the market could see whipsaws (as opposed to a comprehensive down-move), and to a certain extent that happened on Monday, and following the reversal bar on Monday, the major indices followed through and kept running upwards. Big thanks to Glenn for stepping in for the last two weeks … as […]
