Never Bet Against This Chart Formation

I was skimming through my portfolios in MarketClub and noticed that Hewlett-Packard Co. (NYSE:HPQ) had three green Trade Triangles, indicating a very strong trend to the upside. I decided to take a look at the chart to see what was making this stock show three green Trade Triangles while the rest of the market was falling.

When I opened the chart on Hewlett-Packard Co. (NYSE:HPQ), I was immediately drawn to a classic technical formation known as a "head and shoulders bottom." This is the same as a "head and shoulders top," only the reverse.

Six STEPS To Improve Your Trading Results

Today, I would like to share with you six steps that I'm confident will improve your trading results. When you have been around the markets as long as I have, you will notice how things work in the real world and how they translate into the markets.

Don't be fooled by the simplicity of this approach, like many things in life when you break them down, they're really not that complicated. One of the many challenges we have as humans, is we tend to want to make things more complicated and complex than they need to be.

Step 1. A market begins to move with the sponsors who have insider knowledge as it relates to a particular stock or futures market. This information will move a market up or down depending on the insiders' information. (These buyers are very smart and recognize opportunities early) [Read more...]

JPMorgan Chase & Co. Misses And The Train Wreck Continues

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Friday, the 11th of April.

The market was a little caught off guard this morning when JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) announced their earnings, which not only disappointed investors, but missed expectations by 19%. That's a lot like playing golf and missing a sure fire birdie putt.

Yesterday's market action really set the tone and the perception for today. Make no mistake about it, yesterday was a big and important day to a lot of traders.

I have talked about this many times before on this blog and that is the power of perception. The perception now in many traders' minds is that this is going to be more of a two-way street in the marketplace for stocks. Some stocks will do well, while others will fall as the perception of their growth fades in traders' minds. [Read more...]

Is Natural Gas Going To Be The Stealth Bull Market Of 2014?

Yesterday the United States Natural Gas ETF, trading under the symbol PACF:UNG, triggered a new weekly green continuation Trade Triangle at $25.44.

What is interesting about this market is the fact that it has broken above a two-year base, which I believe is very significant longer-term. With the recent pullback from the highs of $27.64, we actually stopped at the previous highs that were set in October 2012 and again in May 2013. Technically, this market looks very good and I am going to layout my case with simple numbers you can tie into the chart.

Looking at a chart of UNG, the most dominant features I see is the two-year base, (number 2) and a breakout over the two-year base (number 6). [Read more...]

The Perfect ETF Portfolio Results For 2013

Today, I will be examining the Perfect ETF Portfolio and what it has achieved for investors over the past several years. This portfolio is specifically designed to avoid risk and provide a modest return. It is appropriate for IRAs and Roth retirement portfolios using ETFs. This portfolio is our most conservative portfolio and is designed to steadily plod along and protect capital with less risk than an outright position in the S&P 500 index.

With the Perfect ETF Portfolio, we track just four ETFs in non-correlating markets. You would divide your capital into four parts and trade equal dollar amounts in each of the ETFs.

GLD - SPDR Gold Shares Trust

This investment seeks to replicate the performance and net of expenses of the price of gold bullion. The trust holds gold and is expected to issue baskets in exchange for deposits of gold, and to distribute gold in connection with redemption of baskets. The gold held by the trust will only be sold on an as-needed basis to pay trust expenses, in the event the trust terminates and liquidates its assets, or as otherwise required by law or regulation.

USO - United States Oil

This investment seeks to reflect the performance, less expenses, of the spot price of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) light, sweet crude oil. The fund will invest in futures contracts for WTI light, sweet crude oil, other types of crude oil, heating oil, gasoline, natural gas and other petroleum based-fuels that are traded on exchanges. It may also invest in other oil interests such as cash-settled options on oil futures contracts, forward contracts for oil, and OTC transactions that are based on the price of oil. [Read more...]

Tech Stocks Put The Market Under Pressure

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Monday, the 7th of April.

Last week we saw the tech stocks shave 4% off the value of the NASDAQ index in just 3 days and we are seeing further follow-through selling today. Technically the markets have been in strong bull trends for the last 5 years. Historically, very few bull markets have exceeded that length of time. This bull market may or may not be the exception.

There have been several Internet stocks that I have been talking about on this blog, mainly Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) which I have been bearish on, Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), Yelp (NYSE:YELP), and a host of others and they are all in bearish patterns. [Read more...]

The Odds Are In Your Favor To Trade Gold This Quarter

Using MarketClub's weekly and daily Trade Triangles, I have found that over the last 6 1/2 years, the second quarter of the year has shown the most consistent profits in gold. These past results showed a quarterly gain on average of $7,104.83 on one futures contract.

Gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) enjoyed a nice move up earlier in the year, reaching a high of $1393.35 and has pulled back to an important Fibonacci support area. I want to watch this market very carefully and wait for the weekly Trade Triangle to turn green to get bullish on gold. That's not to say I am not longer-term bullish, it only means that my timing will kick in when the weekly Trade Triangle turns into a green Trade Triangle.

Besides the Fibonacci support area, the RSI indicator is also at a very low level, similar to that of December 2013. [Read more...]

Why Major Trends Are Important

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Thursday, the 3rd of April.

Indices

Major Trend : BULLISH
Intermediate Trend : BULLISH

One lesson I learned a long time ago in my trading career was to never fight the trend. Trends tend to persist longer and go further than most expect. Yesterday, the Dow 30 gave a signal that it was once again resuming its upward trend, joining the S&P 500 in a positive trend. The NASDAQ is in a neutral and sideways mode. Watch today’s video to see my upside target levels.

The Hidden Jewel In MarketClub

As we begin the second quarter of 2014, I want to bring to your attention one of the "hidden jewels" of MarketClub.

A Portfolio With Results!

MarketClub's World Cup Portfolio (WCP) has never had a losing year in the 6 1/2 years that we have been tracking this portfolio.

When this portfolio was constructed almost 7 years ago, it was designed to include common elements that we thought would be important to the world. With an ever-expanding population worldwide, food is going to continue to be a major item. Likewise energy is going to play an increasingly important element in the world's economy. Over the years, the Dollar has also had its ups and downs and provided some great opportunities. Lastly, we looked at a store of value that has been in place since time begun and that is why we wanted to be actively involved in the movement of gold.

With these core components in place, the World Cup Portfolio was born. It was intended to be part of an overall bigger portfolio, but can function as a stand-alone portfolio. [Read more...]
