Mixed Market Means Scale Back

Today’s market review has something for everyone. A full review, including stocks I’ve just filtered for, stocks I’ve been reviewing recently, and stocks that are providing a great learning lesson. A quick demo of my PRE-prototype mobile optimized TradeFinder.  Not only will this end up being fully functional on mobile devices, but it will also […]

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 […]

All focus now on earnings

As I mentioned last week, stocks have continued to drift upwards into this earnings season, indeed with new records being made. Also like last time, many of our previously-mentioned stocks have reached their first profit targets. And I’m still inclined to say that there’s more positive movement to come, but as ever we will only […]

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 […]

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 […]

Friday Pushes the Market Into Dangerous Territory

Greetings from Madrid, where I’ve been on a very rare (but highly enjoyable) corporate hospitality occasion for the weekend! On Wednesday the S&P touched its 200 day moving average, flinched on Thursday – as I described to my Private Group and then on Friday it slammed through for the first time since March (forgive my […]

Market in conflict with itself

Please write this down as a major trading lesson to always be aware of: Signals in conflict with each other  +  setups not breaking out  =  time to be cautious or in cash.   After last week’s damp squib, we now witness a market well and truly in conflict with itself. This means it’s a lower […]
