Greetings from NYC – New Setups and Essential Trade Management

Greetings from New York where I’m having a number of meetings but sadly not enough leisure time for my liking in such a wonderful city! With the markets creeping back up to their highs, there are several decent OVI and flag opportunities out there (plus some real gems!) but in today’s review I must emphasize […]

Four Week Range Broken As Predicted

Last week I suggested that the 4-week rangebound nature of the main indices would be likely to be broken soon … and they duly were on Thursday. Now this was mainly common sense through experience rather than some sort of mystical capabilities! –  Last week was the first after the summer holidays, –  The indices […]

Four Week Range Likely to be Broken Soon

After Monday the summer holidays are officially over, and the main indices are likely to break their 4-week range within a week or two. Quite what the catalyst and decisive direction will be is still up for grabs, and continued volatility is a reasonable guess to make. But whatever happens, remember that being patient is […]

Patience is Where The Money Is Made

It’s like Groundhog Day! This week will sound much like the last few weeks. Yet another choppy week means we still have to be patient, but this is exactly where the money is made. Because we know exactly what we’re looking for, we can focus on “Trading What We See” … and right now what […]

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 […]
