After an incredibly strong, bull run — the longest in history, that lasted 11 years, the S&P and Dow hit bear market territory. This fall from the sky was the quickest the market has ever gone from an all-time high to bear market territory. It has investors and traders everywhere asking, “What happened?!” I discussed this anomaly on Fox Business while I was in New York City last week.

Definitely not an ideal way to wake up on vacation, but, the reason why I … Read more
As I’m sure you’ve noticed, the market’s experiencing one of the first significant pullbacks we’ve seen in awhile. I have my eye on tech and high momentum stocks, particularly market leaders: Microsoft, Apple, Google, and Tesla. Right now, these leaders are telling us this market is going down — and fast. There were far too many traders long at these highs, and the selling that we’re seeing is emotion taking over. For someone like me — a momentum trader, I … Read more
On Friday, we discussed the macro/technical take in SPCE — which is shaping up to be the move of dreams. Is it the next TSLA? Maybe… Richard Branson has quite a ways to go, as Virgin Galactic is a fresh IPO, but it’s definitely giving us moves like TSLA.
