Time To Short The Euro

The EUR/USD has been very strong recently. The currency pair has been surging higher since November 13, 2012. In its most simple form, the EUR/USD will often trade higher along with the major stock indexes such as the SPDR S&P 500 Index (NYSEARCA:SPY).…

European Financial Stocks, Follow These Closely

All of the major stock indexes in Europe and the United States has been weak ever since Ben Bernanke announced his QE-3 program on September 13, 2012. It seems that the QE-3 announcement by the central bank was a "sell the news" event and stock markets have been in correction mode ever since. The day after the QE-3 program was announced, the S&P 500 Index traded as high as $1474.51 on that session before topping out. This past week, the S&P 500 Index…

Professional Boxer, Doctor... Now It's The Traders Turn!

What Does It Take To Master The Markets? Many times in my career I have encountered new traders who believe they have the ability to master the markets after reading a book on trading, or even because they have obtained some form of degree. Most often the first question I ask them is; are you a fundamental trader? Fundamental traders are those who generally read a companies balance sheet, (example-EPS, PE, EBITDA, book value, etc.) or perhaps they are a technical trader which is someone who…

Black Friday Or Black Hole

In the United States the media will be following retail sales very closely today. This is black Friday which is the busiest shopping day of the entire year. The term black Friday comes as many retailers will finally turn a profit for the year during this time. Many companies which have been in the red all year will finally get into the black. Often many investors will follow the sales or store traffic that takes place…

It's A Debt Party, Profit From It!

The economic problems in the world seem to be growing by the minute. Last week, the European Union did not reach a resolution for Greece. Many investors are wondering what will happen when Greece eventually defaults on its debt obligations. At this time, the European Union is trying to finalize the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF), which is really another TARP like bailout program. It is still amazing that the central banks and the governments around the world continue…

Fed Euphoria

This morning, the major stock markets indexes are holding up very well despite French banks trading lower and a possible Greek default. The stock markets are obviously betting on another wave of inflation creation by the the Federal Reserve and the other central banks to keep the stock markets in rally mode. Tomorrow, the Federal Reserve Bank (U.S. central bank) will announce its interest rate and policy decision.

Traders and investors are expecting the Federal…

Market Movers: Know These Levels And Profit

Know These Levels And Profit From The Market Leaders

Last week, the major stock indexes all rallied sharply higher. The markets seemed to have shrugged off all of the problems in the European Union, Asia, and the United States. Traders and investors rallied the Dow Jones Industrial Average by more than 500.00 points to 11,509.09 by the end of the week. Are these stock markets out of the woods now and ready to rally? Not so fast, last week was options expiration and… Continue

Pro Traders International Play Book

Many traders and investors are wondering if the the current European Union debt crisis is now the next Lehman Brothers type event for the global markets. Last week, the highly followed Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) declined lower by 17.5 percent to 10,604.07 on August 9, 2011 from the May 2, 2011 high which was 12876.00 on the DJIA.

Pro Traders Weekly Play Book - Get Ready!

This past week has been one of the more volatile and turbulent trading periods for the stock market since early 2009. Money has flown right out of the stock market as the problems in the European Union and the United States  hit main street. The problems are debt, debt, and more debt. There has been very little done to correct these debt issues, except for creating more debt. The stock market is now telling the world that simply…

Expect AfterShocks For Weeks To Come

Anytime the markets crash or plunge the way they did yesterday, it is prudent to expect heavy volatile markets for weeks to come. The month of August is usually very calm or tame historically. There is no question that we are in uncertain times when it comes to the debt issues in the United States and Europe.

The United States takes in $2.2 trillion a year and spends $3.7 trillion. That math does not make any sense and will need to really be addressed if the Unites States is…

Pros Weekly Play Book - Get Ready!

At this time, many investors are focused on the problems in the European Union, and the U.S. political debate over the debt ceiling being raised. As a trader, the focus should simply be on the charts and the patterns that stocks and commodities are making. In the last report which was posted on July 10th, 2011, the focus was on the Dow Jones Transports. The charts at that time told us that transportation index was extended and due for a…

Alert: A Stock Top Of The Century

When looking at stocks, one might wonder where to buy or sell. As stocks enter this up cycle, it is wise to begin looking at stocks that may be setting up for a drop in the second half of the year. To do this, we must look at the charts and understand exactly where a stock might hit a pivot long term high. To do this, look at the weekly and monthly charts.

A stock that is nearing a monster level of resistance is Simon Property Group, Inc (NYSE:SPG). This is a commercial real estate… Continue

The Sky Looks Clear For The Cloud

Last night, International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) reported earnings that are being well received by investors this morning. The move higher in IBM is setting the tone for the technology stocks today.

Debt Ceiling, What Debt Ceiling?

The major stocks indexes have traded in a wild range over the past two weeks. The stock market has rallied sharply higher in early July, just after the second Greek bailout in two years was passed. Now the major stock indexes decline sharply as more European Union problems emerge. The United States also has its own soap opera going on. The U.S. Congress is fighting against President Obama on raising the debt ceiling. President Obama is looking to raise the debt by more than $2 trillion dollars.… Continue

Can The U.S. Dollar Index Decline Save Markets?

This morning, the major stocks indexes are declining sharply after the weak non-farm payroll report was released by the U.S. Labor Department. The government reported just 18,000 jobs created, meanwhile, the unemployment rate increased to 9.2 percent. Normally, when the U.S. Dollar Index declines the stock market indexes will inflate and trade higher. So far this morning, the U.S. Dollar Index and the major stock indexes are both declining lower.

At this point, we have to…

Weekly Market Master Report

It is rather amazing that the major stocks indexes continue to hold up so well despite all of the major headwinds that are taking place geopolitically. High energy prices, failed nuclear reactors in Japan, the European debt crisis, and civil unrest in the Middle East and Northern Africa, still have not held this stock market down.  As long as the major stock indexes continue to inflate…

Weekly Market Master Report - Prepare Now!

On Thursday and Friday of this past week the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) bounced sharply over the two trading sessions. When the DJIA leads the major stock indexes it is usually a sign of overall market weakness. Please remember that the DJIA consists of just thirty blue chip multi-national stocks. The DJIA is also a price capital weighted index and not a market capital weighted index like the S&P 500 index and the NASDAQ Composite. This week we shall… Continue
