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 […]

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 […]

Stocks drifting upwards into earnings

Greetings from Sardinia and Happy 4th July weekend! As expected, the markets have been largely positive this week, with many of our previously-mentioned stocks reaching their first profit targets. At this stage I’m inclined to say that there’s more positive movement to come, but as ever we will only “trade what we see”. The good […]

Main Indices Not Reflecting Broader Market

While the three main indices approach recent highs, don’t be fooled as this is not being reflected in the broader markets. This doesn’t mean you can’t focus on those big index component stocks … in fact the most obvious setups are exactly what you should be focusing on. To that end, during today’s update I […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
