Does Your Dog Bite?

February 18, 2018

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


While the market tries to decide if it wants to challenge the January highs or not, we are preparing for a year that could mirror the characteristics of dogs. After all, this weekend begins the Chinese New Year of the Brown Earth Dog. Business Insider Australia edition reports, “The Chinese Year of the Dog is a good time to be cautious when it comes to finances, according to the CLSA Feng Shui Index.” Lee Shing

This Bond ETF Can Alert You To A Big Move in Stocks

February 17, 2018

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


In my last Trades & Tutorials post I showed you how powerful the 30-minute Opening Range (O.R.) is at enabling you to determine the trend of the market on any given day, and that… Its effectiveness and profit potential increases exponentially when the market’s volatility increases (like now). It gets better… Imagine you had the ‘red phone alert' that would ring when a big move in stocks was about to occur! Perhaps the ‘red phone’

The Market Throws the Cane of Caution to the Wind

February 15, 2018

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


That’s me in costume, dressed as an aging silver baroness, who sits on park benches waiting for young folks to come along. The bull market, also in costume, is aging as well. And hoping to captivate young folks into buying near the highs. In fact, I recently read that there was a surge in the number of new trading accounts that opened in January 2018. Typically, the public buys the highs and sells the lows.

Newton's Back. He's Pissed Off, and You Should Be Aware of This…

February 10, 2018

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


This week global equities markets plunged, following U.S. equities which continued their slide from last week. This week’s decline in the U.S. was over 5% putting markets into official correction territory. As I said last week… Newton is back with a vengeance, and he is still upset that any market players would doubt his theories on the laws of gravity! The concoction of already rising rates, high valuations, extreme complacency, and unease on Capital Hill

Walk with Me Out on the Wire

February 14, 2018

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


“Cause…baby we were born to run!” Bruce Springsteen. A classic song title that masks a bit of deception. “Born to Run” sounds liberating. Market bulls sing the same song. Yet the lyrics go on to say, “In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream.” Runaway American dream. Now, there’s something we all think about a lot these days. Today, all eyes were on the inflation or CPI report.

My car’s oil change may improve your trading

February 3, 2018

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


This Trades & Tutorials post is not typical, but it’s been on my mind for a couple weeks now. Today, while driving to get my oil changed I listened to this quick audio clip for the 2nd time while I was on my way to get my car’s oil changed. Before the 6 minute recording was completed, I had taken a detour to a local book store hoping to find the book from which the

Newton is Back

February 4, 2018

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


Global equities finally got slapped this week, with the US markets down almost – 4%. The Dow Industrials were down a devilish 666 points on Friday, making for its worst performance in two years. Greece and Mexico fell the least amount, down only -2%. Newton’s laws of physics seem to be exerting themselves once again.  For some, that might be comforting to know, as we might have finally come out of an unexplainable Green Hole

Will the Market’s Brown Earth Dog Bite or Protect Us?

February 13, 2018

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Astrology is not recognized as a science. As such, this makes it open to interpretation. I recently wrote the following based on Raymond Lo’s take of the Year of the Brown Earth Dog: “When the year of Dog arrives, the fire enters the grave. Hence, it brings setback to optimism which in turn will cause setback in the economic atmosphere.” Recently, I found a different take: “The Year of the Brown Earth Dog is going to

HOG's Breaking Out with Real Motion

January 12, 2018

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


In Tuesday’s live training about our Real Motion indicator I reviewed Harley-Davidson (HOG) as a good example of Real Motion indicating that a breakout would be one to follow. I don’t think you need Real Motion to appreciate the potential in this chart, but it does make the breakout more reliable. Here’s why I thought you’d like to see this chart… The base is well formed. There has been a retracement to the positively sloped

The Darlings of Davos

January 27, 2018

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


Global equity markets roared this week and even accelerated to new all-time highs on the close.  Growth Stocks and Big Caps continued their tear, up over +2% for the week. However, some global equities did even better that the US, like China, which outperformed US equities by 2x. Trump shocked the economic elite at Davos by acting presidential, which no doubt had a big impact on the markets. He said America is “back” and open

Is This Rally a Snow Job?

February 12, 2018

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Mother Nature has a funny way of presenting herself. After a long period without moisture, Santa Fe finally got some snow. Similarly, the market has a funny way of presenting itself. After a period of fierce selling, the market finally got some buyers. If you live to take snapshots of unique moments in time like I do, then you always have your finger on the shudder just in case. Today’s market action had the buyers

Simple Secrets of January Identify Trends & Tops

December 30, 2017

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


After a strong bull run from 2009 to 2017 it's prudent to consider these 2 questions... #1. What if the market stalls out, and becomes range bound for 20 years? It’s happened before. Below you’ll find a monthly chart of such a period. #2. How can you stay with the current trend, without getting caught long at the inevitable market top? Nothing goes up forever. Range Bound Markets Happen After Big Bull Markets But They

Dollar Dysfunction

January 21, 2018

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider


US equities discounted the rancor on Capitol Hill and closed positive on Friday. This put the totals for the year up +5% on average across the major indexes.  The Dow led the pack, up +1.93 % this week. Equities seemed to love the prospect of a shutdown. On a positive note, should the shutdown last long enough, it might end up paying for the increased deficits that were just ushered in with the new tax
