Steep Pullback Could Bring New Setups

The party finally ended on Wednesday/Thursday, but Friday did see a recovery  fueled either by short-covering or bargain hunting. The result of a steep pullback is that you’re likely to be stopped out of profitable positions, or you’re facing a drawdown or loss on positions that haven’t yet reached P1. But what you’ll certainly observe […]

Delusion, a Bull Trap, or Is Everything Rosy in the Garden?

I hope you’re keeping well. We had another dramatic week personally, with an emergency in the early hours of Thursday, but the upshot is everything is now fine, and a baby girl will be with us in the next 2-3 weeks. I’m somewhat sleep-deprived but it was another very good trading performance week in the […]

Earnings Starts This Week So Hang In There

Again, I hope you’re keeping well and safe. It’s just one week until my OptionEasy Bootcamp where I’ll be showing my newest release of software to help combine safe options strategies with optimal OVI setups. Whether you want just the simplest leverage, or your focus is on maximizing regular income there’s nothing quite like this […]

Patience Always Wins The Day

I hope you’re keeping well and safe. It’s just two weeks until my “Miami” Options Bootcamp where I’ll be giving my options intensive, and I have some new treats this year! If you’re logging into my various applications, you may be noticing more upgrades have been deployed, and there are many more to look forward […]

Emergency Briefing Recording

I hope you and your loved ones are keeping well. The markets continue to gyrate, and will continue to do so for a while yet. Our kind of opportunities will still come, so it’s not all bad from a trader’s point of view. However, at the very least we must expect the indices to test […]

Lows Not In Place Yet But Opportunities Are There

I hope you’re keeping well and holding up during these unusual times. It’s a curious situation where we feel huge empathy for our fellow beings, and yet we have here the tools and skills to grab opportunities at the same time. The mitigating factor is that no harm is caused to anyone else just because […]

Be Poised – Opportunities Will Continue

First, I hope you’re keeping safe, well and with your spirits up.  In the midst of this unprecedented situation there is still humour, there are still uplifting stories of kindness, and there are still opportunities for us to thrive. We’re also lucky to live in an age where there’s plenty of entertainment at home if […]

Trading a Market in News Driven Mode

Last Tuesday (3rd March) I tweeted this image with the words: “This is a distinct possibility …” This is a setup that you should already be familiar with and one that we’re seeing a lot of right now. In terms of the main indices, they almost at the point of testing their lows, and one […]

“Short Term Retracement” Was an Understatement

Here’s what I said last weekend: In the meantime the markets are exhibiting a short term retracement on the 1-month trend while the 2-month trend still holds for now.  Also, perhaps surprisingly, is how the broader index, the Russell 2000, is holding up quite robustly.   Well that counts as the understatement of the year! The […]

A Great Week of Breakouts – And We Were Right On It!

A delightful week of upside breakouts with many of our selected stocks doing exactly what we expected them to do, and earnings season looks set to continue positively for now. That said, when it comes to pre-earnings, I often prefer to focus on conditional orders, and last week was perfect for those with so many […]
