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 […]

Three Factors That Will Influence 2020

Happy New Year to you! Regardless of whatever else is going on in the world, 2020 is going to be the best year for OVI Traders for a number of reasons which I’ll highlight shortly, one of which is our new mobile-optimized platform for stocks (already released to London Workshop attendees) and for options, which will […]

Another Solid Week of Gains

A solid week for the markets with many of our review stocks moving up and several more looking poised for upside. None of which is a surprise as I’ve been calling for upside pretty much since early October and so far there’s no reason to change that outlook. The only thing that might cause a […]

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 […]
