Markets survived FED’s hike, sky didn’t collapse…

FED raised rates today and signaled more to come (although as not as many as spooked investors feared) and nothing happened. The world didn’t end, sky didn’t fall, the Universe didn’t collapse, and spooky investors can finally move on and fear something else. Today, I again was busy with other stuff and couldn’t do trading. Continue reading →

Markets held 2700 support today

As posted earlier I identified a support at 2700 level (or around) and today, the market held that level although the trend was gloomy. I expected more turmoil in regards to FED (which is still coming on us) and Trump’s tariffs (this still can come back and spook the investors who already crapped their pants Continue reading →

Nice selloff today! I missed it!!

Today we saw another fairly large sell off. If we measure it by 2017 market standards of doing pretty much nothing but going up.         Today’s decline was just a technical pullback led by a previously overbought tech sector. S&P 500 still making higher highs and higher lows.   Potential trade war Continue reading →

Weekly Results – Mar 16, 2018

Last week was down. The markets were losing ground the whole week except on Friday we regained a little bit of support and relieve. With Trump shooting himself into a foot, do not expect much better market performance next week. Here are the last week’s results to review.

Too many predicting bear market

Everybody is going bearish these days and our economy and politicians are not helping much. Retails saw three consecutive months of slowing sales and tomorrows data will probably help sinking this market lower. Trump fired another of his advisers (as I read on Investing.com: making this Presidency a joke) and futures sold off. However, among Continue reading →

Market weak but still on path higher

The market was weak today again. Spooked investors afraid of Trump’s trade war, slowing economy, technicals lagging, retails lagging, inventory too high, supplies too low, dollar too weak, yen too strong, infrastructure this, cash flow that, debt too high, oil higher today but lower tomorrow, and who knows what else which will be totally unimportant Continue reading →

There is no chaos in WH… it’s only Trump looking for new talents

This morning the stock market opened higher and rallied… until we found out that Trump was looking for new talents by firing Tillerson. But don’t worry, it is not a chaos… it is a new energy!     However, the stock market didn’t like the fact of Trump reducing the “best collection of talents since Continue reading →

Why you are wrong celebrating 10 years anniversary of this bull market

I have seen media saying that this is the longest bull market in history. I have seen people predicting the end of this bull market in 2017 and now in 2018. Some people were predicting this bull market to end in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. Others were predicting the collapse since 2009. To answer Continue reading →

I like volatility! Yes, you can make a lot of money if you trade carefully, have enough money to navigate through trades which turn bad (the worst thing which can happen to you is not having enough cash and get a margin call) and trade. No pain (risk), no gain. March was so far the Continue reading →

A big humbug for nothing

Today, Trump announced his new steel and aluminum tariffs policy. And all I heard people saying was that he imposed tariffs on countries from which the US doesn’t trade steel nor aluminum, all others will be exempt or can apply for exemption. Or he imposed tariffs on everyone and them exempted everyone. But markets liked Continue reading →
