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 →

Weekly Results – Mar 09, 2018

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 →

Stock market rebounded after large futures selloff in the morning

Another nice and interesting ride today in the stock market. After resignation of Gary Cohn from Trump’s administration which was announced yesterday at 5:30 ET the futures at S&P and Dow dropped 32.25 points and 400 points respectively. S&P 500 was losing 1.41% and all our trades looked very gloomy. Although I kept saying to Continue reading →

Cohn resigned futures crapped

Once confident investors pushing this market higher are now spooked by anything and everything. Trump once boasted about the stock market, talking heads were praising him, investors had bright future in front of them and the bull was unstoppable. It all changed suddenly on a dime. They are now all spooked by the same man Continue reading →

Fear is gone, or is it?

Trump’s tariffs were an overreaction, probably better to say an excuse for selling. Today, Trump and his administration eased up on their rhetoric and conditioned any tariffs upon renegotiating NAFTA treaty which caused the market rally hard again. Will this last or are we going to find some other reason for getting the market slammed Continue reading →

February 2018 trading, investing, results

February is over and it was a very wild month. Very volatile, dramatic, and to some scary month. At the beginning of the month the market corrected more than 10%, then we recovered some but Powell first then Trump with his tariffs sank the markets again. No matter how scary these moves are, I actually Continue reading →

Trump sinks the stocks this time on his tariffs announcement

If it wasn’t Powell, it is now Trump and his tariffs announcement. However, it is all just excuse for large investors and trades to unload and possibly buy back again cheaper as small guys start running in panic. On this blog I try to advocate having clear head and stay calm. Listen to big investors Continue reading →

Good news is bad news

How many times have you seen that revising GDP down (which means economy is slowing) is a good news for the market (as stocks climbed higher upon this GDP revision)? I know many will argue that it will mean “danger to economy” and thus less interest hikes. But it is all bullshit. Our interest rates Continue reading →

Powell tanked the market but on a very low volume

Powell testified in front of the Congress and tanked the market. But did he? Maybe he sparked this selling but it was expected. We recovered most of the correction in a fast pace. This recent correction was fast and in one wave and we recovered in the same fast pace… and in one wave. However, Continue reading →
