Nine Sector Stocks You Won't Want To Miss

Today I'm going to be looking at nine major sectors and finding the strongest stocks in each sector. I will be using the Trade Triangle technology to determine which stock is the strongest in each sector.

Here are the stocks I will be looking at today: [Read more...]

Greece Is Not A Black Swan Event

It seems like this never-ending, ongoing Greek tragedy is like an Energizer battery as it just keeps going and going and going.

In order for something to qualify as a "black swan event", it has to come out of the blue and be a total surprise to the market. Certainly, Greece cannot claim to have just happened or come out of the blue. It seems like this train wreck of a country has been going on forever without a resolution. The fact that the markets are only down a bit as of this writing and have the potential to close unchanged indicates that most of the US equity markets have already discounted the "Greek Effect".

Today I will be looking at all the major indices and commenting on what has taken place. [Read more...]

Did You Catch The Netflix Move Like The Trade Triangles Did?

By now you have probably seen the extraordinary move that Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has made this year. But did you see how well the Trade Triangles captured the timing on these moves?

Netflix announced after the close yesterday that it is creating a seven for one stock split. This is a good move for Netflix as it was the fourth highest priced stock in the Standard & Poor's index.

Based on yesterday's close of $681.19, it would drop the share price down to $97.31. For the average investor, this makes Netflix shares a lot more palatable as it will probably generate a lot more activity in this stock.

Today, I would like to share with you how you would have fared using the Trade Triangle technology to time your moves in and out of Netflix.

The first chart shows the results using the monthly/weekly Trade Triangle strategy. This strategy produced a robust 32% return as of June 23rd.

NASDAQ:NFLX

The second chart shows how you would have fared using only the monthly Trade Triangles. This strategy produced a return of 49% as of June 23rd. [Read more...]

How This One Indicator Could Make You Rich

Let's face it, there are hundreds of technical indicators out there doing all kinds of mischief in the market. Some of them are good and some of them may be hyped a little too much.

For the moment I am excluding the Trade Triangle technology which I personally believe is one of the best methods to trade the markets.

I often hear that the markets are not the same and that they have changed, and I have to agree to a certain extent they have changed. However, the fundamental purpose of the market is to set the price, good or bad, for a market, a commodity or anything else that is freely traded and that principle has not changed. [Read more...]

Optimism For Greece - Can It Last?

It started in the Far East and was immediately picked up by the European stock markets with many of them soaring over 3% for the day. All of which was overshadowed by the Athens Stock Index which was up over 8%. Can anyone say happy days are here again?

It would appear to this observer that the world wants a positive outcome from this self-induced Greek tragedy.

Last week, on Thursday to be exact, you may remember buy signals were triggered on the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ based on the Trade Triangle technology. That signal did not apply to the Dow which remains a laggard. The Dow could join the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ should it trade above 18,169 this week. As of this writing, the DOW is about 30 to 40 points away from giving a buy signal based on the Trade Triangle technology. [Read more...]

Game On, Both The NASDAQ And S&P 500 Flash Buy Signals

While most economists and governments are focusing on the looming disaster known as Greece, the markets have been going their merry way and yesterday was no exception. Both the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ flashed important buy signals and appear to want to move higher.

What was particularly impressive yesterday was the fact that the NASDAQ made a new high with the move. Should the NASDAQ close above 5,092.04, that would represent a new weekly high close for this index. The S&P 500 must close over 2,126.06 to record a new high weekly closing record price. With the current mood of the market right now, I expect this to happen unless there is some extraordinary news that comes out that nobody can foresee at this moment.

This will be a great weekend to take advantage of the "52-week highs on a Friday rules". New highs are outnumbering new lows by 3 to 1, indicating that the investors are still very confident about equity prices.

The only laggard in the triad is the Dow. This index only represents a microcosm of all stocks traded, but is still viewed as a viable and important index. A move over 18,230 today will push the Dow in the plus column and turn all of the Trade Triangles green and positive. [Read more...]

Bingo, Stocks in the "Buy Zone"

What's with these crazy markets? For the past several months, the stock indexes have been moving sideways without any clear trend. This has proven to be very frustrating for many traders. However, there are many markets that are trending right now that can be traded profitably.

Have you looked at the bank stocks lately? Almost all of the financial stocks are moving higher and have been for quite some time. Stocks like: [Read more...]

Continuation Patterns Work – And Here's Why

I learned about continuation patterns many years ago and it was an expensive lesson. Before I share that with you, let me explain to you what a continuation pattern is and what it does.

A continuation pattern is one where you have a move out of the base, which is called a breakout, and the market moves up rather sharply and then stops and move sideways. The reverse is true when a market breaks down from a top and then forms a continuation pattern to the downside. Traders in a bear market will either sell short or buy puts looking for the market to move lower.

Well, many years ago I was one of those rookie traders and it was a lesson that I've never forgotten to this day - don't try to pick tops or bottoms on continuation patterns.

Talking about a classic continuation pattern, the stock of Under Armour Inc. (NYSE:UA) broke out of a continuation pattern today. UA now looks poised to move much higher. I've talked about this stock before and pointed out that it was a continuation pattern to the upside in several of my previous videos, I hope you were able to catch the move. Certainly, the Trade Triangle technology did not miss this move and is sitting with some nice profits at the moment.

What has your experience been with continuation patterns? Do you trade them, or were you unaware of this recurring phenomenon? Either way, I would like to hear what you think. Leave your comments below this post.

Poll: Are You Bullish or Bearish?

After a nice rebound the last two days, the market has once again come under pressure from Greece. Stocks opened lower today as negative news out of Greece is weighing on sentiment. The standoff between Greece and its creditors took a turn for the worse on Thursday, with both sides citing "major differences" over how to save the country from bankruptcy. This news has put pressure on the European and U.S. equities markets.

That begs the question....

How do you feel about the markets?

Are These Stocks Right For You?

Yesterday, I mentioned that I thought the lows seen in most of the major indices would be interim lows and I expected to see a bounce from those lows.

Today, we are seeing that bounce and I have three stocks that I believe you should be looking at, and perhaps buying, if they meet your risk profile.

I will show you why you should be buying these stocks and the exact rules I'm following to buy them. You will be able to mimic these same rules using the tools available to you as a MarketClub member.

The three stocks I'm looking at are: [Read more...]
