This Earnings Likely to be Positive and Choppy

Earnings season is now in full swing and the early odds are that it will be positive and choppy. In today’s market review you’ll see exactly how I’ve arrived at that by using the fantastic OVI Dashboard tool. Trading is all about playing the odds, and we have the tools and technique to determine those […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

More OVI Setups to Learn From Today

If you attended my OVI Traders event in London two weeks ago (live or remotely), the workshop recording has been published on the Private Workshop website, and you can now review the recordings, which are conveniently organized into the same chapter headings as within the manual. There are more setups today than last week, but […]

Not Many AAA Setups

For all those who attended last Saturday’s London event (live or remotely), the workshop recordings will be released in the next few days, so look out for an email on that. As we look at the markets today, there are not many great OVI setups right now, so this will be more of a learning […]

OVI Sentiment Got It Right

Last week I was clear that the markets were facing an uptick in volatility, and that you should only consider conditional orders or straddles. Along with the OVI Sentiment Indicator (OVIsi) having turned red on the 28th September, this gave you an invaluable insight at exactly the right time … and not for the first […]

Gently Does It For This Earnings Season

You can see that there has been an uptick in volatility in the lead-up to this earnings season. This means be super vigilant, especially if you’re considering any pre-earnings trades, which would need to be conditional orders in any case this time. Options traders may want to consider straddles too, but again, make sure you […]
