5 Weekend Trading Opportunities

Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere! Well, here we are, a week before Christmas, and the markets have just been going crazy as we can all see. With that in mind, I want to bring to your attention five trending stocks that just had their weekly Trade Triangles kick in strengthening their longer-term bull trend.

I'll also be looking at five weekend trading opportunities. That's when I look at stocks that are making 52-week highs on Friday and hold them over the weekend and sell them on the opening of the market Tuesday morning. Now there are caveats with this type of trading, the first one is the stock must close at or close to its weekly highs. The stock cannot make a high for the day and then close at its low at closing time that would disqualify it as a weekend candidate.

I am not a big fan of trading this late in the year due to high volatility and low volume. However, if you feel compelled to trade, the trades in today's video are the trades that I like.

2014 has been a wonderful year with lots of trading opportunities; I don't want to see anyone blow up on the last two weeks of the year.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Every success with MarketClub,

Has The Market Made A U-Turn?

Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere! If you look back at my very first post for December, titled "December Can Be A Dangerous Month For Traders", you'll understand why these markets are becoming so volatile. Yesterday's announcement, or lack of announcement by the Fed, was all the market needed to reverse course and rally sharply creating the best one day rally for the year for the indices. Not only was it a sharp rally with new buying, but it was a sharp rally fueled by a great deal of short covering.

The questions on every investor's mind has to be, "Is this the Santa Claus rally? Have I missed it and is the rally for real?" In order to answer that question you have to delve deep into the makeup of the market. As many of you know, the Trade Triangles have been neutral and out of the market for intermediate term traders. What that means is that you have no position in the market at the present time. As traders and investors, there are three opportunities to make money in the markets, you can be long the markets and profit when they go up, you can be short the markets and profit when they go down or you can just be out of the market. Staying out of the markets is often times a very smart choice, particularly when the markets are irrational and thinly traded.

Here's an interesting question from Kathy on the Members Blog today: [Read more...]

10 Game Changing Stocks To Watch In 2015

Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere! There is no doubt about it, 2014 has been quite a year. As the year winds down, I thought I would take a look at 10 very popular stocks from 2014 and discuss what I see happening to these stocks in the beginning of 2015.

Looking at these 10 stocks, I can quickly see that only two of them actually remain in bull market mode. Of the remaining eight, four stocks are in a neutral or trading range mode and four stocks are in bear market mode.

Regardless of what happens to the economy in 2015, these 10 stocks will move either up or down and that's what's important. If profits are what you are after, you need to be in stocks that move and have good liquidity. You cannot make good money when a stock is moving sideways.

In today's video, I will be examining technical tools that you can use to sharpen your trading skills in 2015. I think you will get a lot out of these trading tips to help your trading be more successful.

Russia's Achilles' Heel

No doubt by now, you've heard of the problems in Russia with its currency. You have to say to yourself, "a 17% return on my money sounds pretty good," but when the ruble sinks more than that in one day, you say, "WHOA, will I get my money back?" And that my friends is Russia’s Achilles' heel right now, as investors ponder whether they going to get their money back before capital controls are put in place.

If you didn't think commodity markets are important, think again. The correlation between the collapse of the Russian ruble (CME:6R.Z14.E) and the collapsing oil market is extraordinary and I will illustrate it for you in today's video.

Who knew that Saudi Arabia alone could, in essence, break the Russian economy almost in half, not with tanks and bombs, but with a commodity called crude Oil (NYMEX:CL.F15.E).

Saudi Arabia has continued to push production from its vast oil fields in order to lower the price of oil and make it difficult for competitors to stay in business. One of the amazing side effects to all this is the fact that Saudi Arabia has basically ripped the guts out of the Russian economy and its cash cow, crude oil. [Read more...]

What Are You Doing To Prepare For 2015?

One of the things I've always done over the years is close out all my accounts just before the middle of December. Looking back on the year, I have to say it's been a good year and I hope 2014 was a good year for you too.

This is perhaps the most dangerous time of the year when the markets are very thin and volatile. They can swing dramatically one way or the other and make very little sense. It's not that way every year, but trading does drop off dramatically and liquidity becomes a problem, even with big stocks.

If you haven't made your money for the year by the middle of December, you're not going to make it in the last two weeks of December. I can practically guarantee that.

So here's what I do, I look forward to enjoying the holidays with my family and I look forward to 2015 and get mentally prepared for the markets. There is absolutely zero doubt in my mind that there will be some huge moves next year. You only need to catch one of these giant moves to make your year. I happen to think that next year will be golden - that is when the new bull market starts in gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO). Now remember, that is what I think, but I'm going to have to have the Trade Triangles back those thoughts with solid technical evidence that gold is going higher. [Read more...]

There Will Be No Santa Claus Rally This Year

Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere! Every December it's the same tune, the "Santa Claus Rally." That happens when the market rallies and closes close to or at its best levels for the year. I for one am not sure that is going to take place this year, and here's the reason why.

Late last night, I think it was about 12:30AM, I posted on our member blog that Friday could turn real ugly! I came to that conclusion based on yesterday's market action which had to disappoint the bulls with the weak market close. Couple yesterday's market action with the action we saw on Wednesday and you can put together a composite picture of just how this market is beginning to fall on its own weight. Should the S&P 500 close lower today, it will be the biggest weekly loss in over two months, not a good sign.

One of the key areas I'm are watching today on the NASDAQ is 4,653. Should this level be broken and I expect it will be, that will put all three of the indices in a trading range indicating that intermediate-term traders should be on the sidelines. This analysis dovetails very well with my December view of the markets. [Read more...]

5 Major Stocks In Major Trouble

Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere! At the beginning of December I published a post titled, "December Can Be A Dangerous Month For Traders." It looks like that prediction is coming true as we are seeing increasing volatility not just in stocks, but in the broad indices as well.

In today's video, I'm going to be looking at five major stocks that are in major trouble, in my opinion. These are all well-known stocks that have, at one time, been the darling of investors' portfolios. I have always believed in Newton's Law of Gravity and it would appear as though these five stocks are coming back down to earth.

I'm going to start off with perhaps the biggest name, it is a service I use every day as I am sure you do too, and that is Google, Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG). [Read more...]

The Looming Greek Disaster

How do you spell Greece? D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R

Remember Greece? Yes, that's the very same country that created all the problems for the world's economies back in 2008. Well, Greece is back and the problems could be even greater this time. I'm not sure who it was who said this, but it has been said that you don't solve debt problems by piling more debt on to more debt. I agree, but that is exactly what the world has been doing since 2009.

In every great challenge there are great opportunities and 2015 could be one of those extraordinary years when smart investors can do very, very well. I don't think it's going be on the long side of the market, however. I think this bull market that has been going on for six years is about to come to a screeching halt as reality finally sinks in and we begin to pay for the folly of our deeds. [Read more...]

Is The Market At A Tipping Point?

Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere! There's no doubt about it, this bull market which began in Q1 of 2009 is getting a bit long in the tooth and may be setting itself up for a correction in 2015. If that's the case, we could see gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) once again come into fashion as I believe it is building a base to do just that.

Sandy, a valued MarketClub member, asked me to start looking at some shorting opportunities in the stock market. Some of you may never have traded stocks from the short side before, but it can be likened to buying stocks, only in reverse.

It seems like now would be a good time to bring this up, particularly with my thoughts turning more and more to 2015. I'm going to be looking at several stocks that I believe will to continue to erode and offer trading opportunities on the short side of the market. [Read more...]

3 Banks Stocks That You Should Be On Your Radar

Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere! Today, I'm going to look at three banking stocks that flashed buy alerts last Friday. Recently, the bank stocks have been on a tear. For the past two years, they have all been moving higher, but now they seem to have begun an accelerated phase to the upside which could be their last move.

The stocks I'll be looking at today are JP Morgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM), The Goldman Sachs Group (NYSE:GS) and U.S. Bank Corp (NYSE:USB). Each of these three stocks gave a Trade Triangle signal last Friday that the intermediate trend had once again resumed. [Read more...]
