Trading Diary #4

As I wrote in my March 2017 dividend report in an outlook that the market is on crossroads of either going higher or staying on the downward path, today’s trading showed us we are heading down.     Although the intra-day trading was quite impressive (see below) when the market could recover almost all losses, Continue reading →

Atlanta FED voted for rate hike but lowered GDP forecast again!

Data (in)dependent Janet Yellen and her FED cronies decided to raise rates to show us their good faith in the US economy. By raising the rates FED was “signaling their faith” pointing to “improvement of the labor market” but completely ignoring all economic data indicating that the US economy is in reality slowing down and Continue reading →

Remember your objective, your goal, your plan, and hold tight

As expected markets were even worse on Monday than on Friday. It was scary, but there is no need to panic. Ignore all bears who are coming out of all directions screaming that this is it, this is the end, and this is the beginning of an even bigger crash! It is not. I can Continue reading →

Rout set to continue on Monday but do not panic

I have two news for you, one bad and one good. The selloff is going to continue on Monday as futures are already down another 2.5% as of now; yes it may change by the end of the night and we may open higher and see a V shape recovery, but as of now, it Continue reading →

A Stunned Wall Street Reacts To China’s Currency Devaluation

Tyler Durden: There is much stunned confusion among Wall Street’s “best and brightest” following China’s historic Yuan devaluation overnight which was predicted by exactly zero of said best and brightest, just like nobody expected the SNB to give up its own peg to the EUR in January.     The problem as the WSJ puts Continue reading →

Greeks vote NO and send futures to abyss

Here we go again. Now I can say I thought Greeks would reject the Euro-offer, but before that I didn’t dare to say it. What if they chose the opposite, right? I must say that this vote contains so much stupidity in it that it stunned me a lot. If we take off all the Continue reading →

Should you short SPX on Monday upon a GREXIT?

I wouldn’t be so fast jumping the gun and short this market. Futures reacted very negatively on the Greek referendum announced by an irresponsible socialist government. Not only Greeks cannot afford the referendum, the whole EU cannot afford losses from Greeks. Although Greece is posting a nice drama (or tragic comedy actually) I believe all Continue reading →

Are the markets turning?

A few years ago, when I was training trading options, the trader from whom I was learning pointed out that the markets were turning down. Slowly reversing. And I remember I made quite nice money under his leadership. The chart looked like this: It was 2011 and the market corrected 16% those days (from July Continue reading →

Path to nowhere continues. Where is SPX going tomorrow?

Monday was again as expected. I expected it to go higher at first to overcome Friday’s selling but then drift lower. At first the manufacturing data which came out better than expected but along with not so good economic data (mainly consumer spending) put the market on an upward trend. The market seems to love Continue reading →

Tech stocks are going to break out this week, will $SPX follow?

Tech stocks are about to break out in a big way, according to one top technician. “The Nasdaq Composite has outperformed the broader market this year, outpacing the S&P 500 [Index],” technical analyst Rich Ross said on CNBC’s “Trading Nation.” The Nasdaq Composite has rallied more than 7 percent year-to-date, while the S&P 500 is Continue reading →
