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 […]

Follow My Rules to Navigate News Driven Market

If you didn’t believe it before, you would surely believe it now! My rules will make you phenomenal returns when the market wants to play fair, and my rules will save you from the worst consequences when the market decides to be crazy. Such has been the last eight or so traded days, and if […]

Trump and The Fed Tickle The Market’s Tummy

Plenty of action this week with more earnings being announced. One tweak to a strategy that is very attractive is making conditional orders on pre-earnings setups. By this, if the stock breaks out, then you can be in, and if it doesn’t break out you’re not in and you’re therefore protected. With plenty of stocks […]

Earnings Thrills and Spills in Full Flow

If last week was a damp squib then this week made up for it and there are more  thrills and spills to follow, of that I am certain! Amazon gapped down while Starbucks gapped up, and my Exxon straddle is secure and poised for more risk free profit as I’ve de-risked the position. In today’s […]

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 […]

No Breakout No Losses – Focus on Strength

Well that was a bit of a damp squib wasn’t it?! Last week looked poised for more upside with many stocks setting up bullishly, but then along came a trade war escalation and the breakouts didn’t materialize. This is one of the many great reasons for playing breakouts as per my EDGE trading plan. It […]

Stocks Poised for Upside After Choppy Fortnight

After a choppy week or so, stocks are forming mainly bullish setups now, and I would expect the next week to be a good one. Remember the market isn’t there to make life easy for the average punter … but it can be pretty straightforward for those of us who have the right information at […]

Bullish Earnings is Underway

The April-May earnings season is now underway and is already looking like it will confirm my previous thoughts about it. My OVI Dashboard indicators and the OVI Sentiment Indicator are still pointing in a broadly bullish direction, so I’ll be focusing on bullish looking stocks. As I mentioned last time, there are many charts with […]

Groundhog Week for this Earnings Season

It feels like Groundhog day with another decent week for the broad market, several notable OVI post-earnings setups that have continue to grind upwards, and a number of OVI pre-earnings setups popping at their earnings. Another big push would be welcome, so as I mentioned last week make sure you’re conservative with your first profit […]

Valentines Week Shaping Up Nicely

This has been a productive earnings season, and it looks like there will be more positive sentiment moving into this week. This OVI market review is another long one, as there are plenty of pre- and post-earnings stocks to review. Remember, that to take best advantage of pre-earnings you really do need to get into […]
