Canaries in the coal mine right now?

November 12, 2019

The market has been extended for almost a week.  Like we talked about in my webinar with the Nasdaq last week, that’s typically a good time to hedge. However, one key piece of this is waiting for some type of trigger. Because, if you don’t, then you’re just fighting the positive momentum higher. Typically, what I like to watch for, is the ‘canary in the coal mine.’ What does that mean…? It’s the weakest indexes, sectors and stocks, to roll … Read more

How’s THIS for positivity?

November 4, 2019

The structure of the market has significantly improved in the last 3 weeks, particularly because of large macro factors. Like… Another Fed rate cut, an upcoming resolution of the trade war, market largely displaying the impeachment proceedings to be unimportant, and strong earnings.  For me, I’ve been very cautious going into this earnings season, because the high momentum stocks have been beaten down. But, with a positive earnings season in addition to the Fed and trade war turning out so … Read more

The 2X Move

October 28, 2019

a follow up Last week, we discussed earnings season — and some of the opportunities it can provide. One of my favorites is the 2x move. This is when a company shocks on earnings, to the upside, and the stock moves more than twice what the market maker move was.

Hedging During this Season with the Nasdaq

October 25, 2019

With earnings reports coming in over the last week and next few weeks, there’s a lot of speculation about what might happen to the market, who might report what, and how traders and investors alike can be prepared. No one wants to be on the wrong side of an earnings report. Especially when the trend going into this season has given us a clear picture of several high momentum stocks losing their momentum. Frankly, they’ve been rather soft. So here’s … Read more

MSFT’s eerie earnings sign

October 23, 2019

The stock market has basically been at a standstill the entire week. Volume’s been extremely low, and price has traded right around the 3,000 price point in the SPX. The news has been full of impeachment talk, Turkey, Syria, upcoming earnings, and the 2020 election cycle. Plus, after the bell, MSFT reported earnings (and a good earnings report at that). Yet it initially traded lower. Here’s what’s up with that, and what it could mean for this rest of earnings … Read more

Who I’m watching this Earnings Season

October 18, 2019

Earnings season started this week with a bang, with bank stocks including JPMorgan (JPM) and Citigroup ©, announcing positive results that sent the market trading higher. Next, came a few transportation stocks and the first of the Nasdaq 100 components (NDX) — Netflix (NFLX).  Next week, is when the real volatility will kick up, as the earnings calendar continues to fill up. What are some key reports I’ll be watching and possibly trading? Here’s a list for next week… Monday, … Read more
