Are The Markets Teetering At The Edge Of A Cliff?

Well, it certainly seems as though the equity markets cannot make up their minds which way they want to go. The question on every investor's mind is, is this going to be a major top in the market like 2007?

I remember reading an article years ago titled "They do ring a bell at the top of the market." It was an intriguing title and, of course, that's the reason I read the article. In essence, it boiled down to this, when the Federal Reserve starts raising interest rates, it can be a major negative for the market.

What will happen when interest rates start to move up again, as they invariably will? Are we going to see a move out of stocks and into safe yield bearing instruments again? [Read more...]

George Soros Says 50/50, I Say 100%!

This morning, famed hedge fund manager, George Soros, who made $1 billion betting against the Bank of England some years ago, thought it was a 50/50 proposition that Greece would exit the euro. My feelings are it's closer to 100%, and it's just a matter of time before Greece implodes. The bottom line is, they don't want to pay back the money that they have borrowed in the past.

If and when this happens, the financial ramifications will have a profound effect on the world. Whether this means a run to hard assets like gold or the beginning of an inflation cycle, it is too early to tell. [Read more...]

You Want To Borrow More Money, But You Can't Pay Me Back

Let's face it, Greece is going to be a tragedy one way or another. It is only a matter of time. Can you imagine someone wanting to borrow more money so they can help pay back the loan that they already can't pay back? Does that make any sense to anybody, anywhere on this planet?

Well, that's exactly what's happening in Greece right now and in my humble opinion, it is only a matter of time before it implodes and Greece exits out of the euro zone. Fiscal responsibility is not a word known in the Greek language. There is no way that Greek citizens are going to ante up and volunteer to pay more taxes, they are too used to getting free things from a government which they do not trust. That, my friends, is why socialism does not work and in the immortal words of the late British Prime Minister, Margret Thatcher on socialism, "sooner or later you run out of other people's money". And that's exactly what has happened to Greece. [Read more...]

Is Gold Foretelling An Impending Greek Disaster?

Today is the first day of spring and maybe this is the cause for the spring in the markets. March 20th also happens to be "International Happiness Day" and I'm sure that many investors have a smile on their face today with the way the markets are acting in Europe, Asia and the U.S.

Today, I'll be looking at gold prices because they are acting and doing something that they haven't done in a long time and I want to share that with you in today's video. It is impossible to pinpoint what is causing gold to rally, whether it is short covering or the potential that Greece is going to implode any day now. Either way, it's not important what is causing the rally. The important thing to remember when trading is to get the direction right and not worry about what is causing the trend. I remember when I was in the trading pits in Chicago, I asked someone why the market was going up and he said to me, "It doesn't matter, it's going up". There is a lot of truth in that comment. That's one of the big takeaways in trading, don't over think markets.

As I write this commentary before the market opens, we could be seeing the equity markets close well towards the end of the day and possibly closing in new high ground on short equities before the weekend. The NASDAQ is very close to breaching the 5000 level, a close over that area today can be viewed as being very positive for the weekend.

Crude oil also appears to be finding some support at lower levels but has not yet reversed trend and turned around. I will be looking at that market to see where the key points are for a trend reversal to the upside. Remember markets can get very crowded on one side of the ledger when everybody believes that the trend will continue and go on forever. When that happens, a market tends to reverse and go the other way. The reason that happens is because markets are forward-looking trading instruments.

I will be getting into the recent Trade Triangle scan today to find new trades that may be just emerging. You won't want to miss that part of today's video.

This being Friday, I will of course, be looking for weekend trades using our "52-week highs on a Friday" strategy.

Every success with MarketClub,
