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 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.

Which stock to buy?

As I mentioned many times before and it is a part of my strategy, I use 50% of my options trading proceeds and buy dividend growth stocks; dividend aristocrats to be exact. As Warren Buffett said that he considers diving stocks an investing blessing, every investors who buys stocks to hold them for a long Continue reading →

So Walmart (WMT) slowed down… OMG, end of the world!

Today, the markets paused their recovery streak and dropped approx. 16 points (-0.58%). I have seen a few panicking about it already predicting the end of recovery and another crash. There are many predicting that S&P 500 will now reverse down and re-test the previous lows. When too many expect one thing, it for sure Continue reading →

Dividend stock picks and market outlook for 2016

I expect 2016 to be a bad year as we are heading towards a recession. I still believe FED had it wrong and raising rates was a bad move, although it was a minor hike, it will still do the damage. Generally, higher rates is an economic brake preventing fast growing economy from overheating. We Continue reading →

Santa, Bonus, Merry Christmas!

I just finished a trade which gave me a hard time a bit. I was expecting the market to be silent with a bias towards down, so I opened a bear call spread. However, although volume in the market was low, S&P 500 managed to push higher this week and endangered my trade. Fortunately, it Continue reading →

While the reasons investors were unhappy varied, the main reason related to the recently unveiled iPhone 6. Worried that Apple may have reached its pinnacle in selling the high-end smartphone, investors sent the stock lower. Continue reading →
