I joined Bart Chilton on RT America’s show, ‘Boom Bust’ earlier today to discuss the potential results from America’s talks with China, along with what it means for the market. Check it out… First off are there any winners in the Trade War? Throughout this trade war, I think it’s safe to say that no one has been a ‘winner.’ Of course, this is subjective. But, I’d say that the stock market has demonstrated its dislike for the political instability … Read more
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’ve had a lovely holiday season with your friends and family, and that the market hasn’t given you too much trouble. I mean it’s officially the first “trading day of the year”… And it’s already been crazy volatile. But I’ve been awaiting Q4 earnings season, as I think it could be one of the only catalysts to break the bear market. But, so far… The only signs I’ve seen are that this bear market … Read more
I discussed the continued stock market decline on Yahoo Finance, The Final Hour with Seana Smith, after the Plunge Protection Team was called in late Sunday evening. Will the comments by Treasury Secretary Mnuchin be a catalyst to bring the market higher? I don’t think so. It’s a weak attempt to assuage investor confidence that actually had the opposite effect. The S&Ps entered bear market territory and experienced there worst Christmas Eve ever. Now what? What Does Today’s Price Action … Read more
While the past two months have been volatile and bleak, this week, something worse (for the bulls) happened. While previously we’ve seen three sectors holding up the market – utilities, healthcare and consumer staples… This week even these faltered… The S&Ps have 11 sectors and for the S&Ps to rise, they need at least three or four of these sectors and their top weighted products to move higher. As apart of my Five Star strategy, identifying the sectors that are … Read more
There’s been a lot of uneasiness in our trading room lately — from traders who have been at this for years to our new trial members that feel ‘in over their head’. It’s an unpredictable time in the market… And I feel like I’ve been using the word ‘unpredictable’ so much, someone should write it on my trader’s tombstone. But it’s true. Historically, this much volatility is abnormal. As a result of this abnormality, the market has been full of … Read more
Buy the dip shifted to sell the rallies weeks ago — investors and traders alike were just too scared to admit it. The rally last week after positive China news was, to me, the last chance opportunity to correct the bearish downtrend we’re in. However, what happened last Monday? Stocks opened up strong, and sellers immediately stepped in, rejecting the price action with force. Not surprised. *cue vindictive, spiteful face here* The market can’t trade higher while FAANG, industrials, and … Read more
