Big Trend, Big Stock, Low Risk Trade?

Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere. I would like to bring to your attention a stock that has been in a strong upward trend for some time that just flashed another buy signal yesterday. I consider this a sign of strength, particularly as the general market was down yesterday.

I decided just to do a short video today and focus on this one stock to show you an approach that I believe offers a very nice risk-reward ratio. I'm also going to share with you a way that you can lower the risk even further by using this one very simple technique.

The stock I'm going to be looking at is a big, well-known, high volume stock that offers lots of liquidity.

Check out today's video and see what you think of this stock and this one very simple technique to lower risk and enhance profits.

Every success with MarketClub,

Are You Looking For A Winning Portfolio?

Hello MarketClub members and traders everywhere. It's the start of another trading week and I would like to share with you one of the model portfolios that is available to you as a valued member of MarketClub.

The portfolio I will be looking at is the Internet portfolio. This portfolio performed extremely well in 2013 with a 65% return and had a more conservative return of 16% in 2014. This year, the Internet portfolio has seen some tremendous profits in just two of the five stocks are tracked in this portfolio.

Every day the Internet portfolio is updated showing you the most current position and possible next move. The five stocks that are tracked are all well-known stocks that are traded heavily and offer great liquidity.

Both Netflix and Amazon have proven to be big winners. Yelp is also looking good and is currently short from $41.25.

Here are the current positions and open profits as of 8/14/2015: [Read more...]

What A Week And It's Not Over Yet

Make no mistake about it, this past week has been very volatile with 200 point swings in the DOW becoming almost a daily occurrence.

But, guess what?

The markets are practically unchanged from last Friday's close. In fact, the the DOW and S&P 500 are up 0.20% and 0.26% respectively as of the close of business Thursday. Only the NASDAQ is down for the week with a very minor loss of 0.13%. All that could change today as traders are faced with the decision of what to with their stocks. Fridays tend to be decision day for many traders when they ask themselves, "Do I want to be short this market for the weekend, or should I be on the sidelines"?

Do you remember those 3 stocks that I highlighted on Monday? Well, I'm happy to report that all 3 stocks are positive for the week. [Read more...]

One Amazing Stock and the "Death Cross"

Last week I talked about the "death cross". This ominous sounding indicator is watched by many long-term investors. A "death cross" occurs when the 50-day moving average moves below the 200-day moving average. It sounds a little morbid, but this indicator has been useful in the past.

Let me give you some examples of the "death cross" during the past 8 years. Since 2007, there have been four times when the "death cross" has come into play. On January 14, 2008, a "death cross" was signaled and that was the start of the big downturn that lasted until July 8, 2009, when the 50-day moving average moved back over the 200-day moving average.

On July 7, 2010, the 50-day moving average once again dipped below the 200-day moving average signaling a bear trend. That signal came to an end on October 4, 2010, and proved to be more of a consolidation than a bear market.

We had to wait until August 25, 2011 for the next "death cross". This again proved to be short lived, only about four months and in retrospect, looked more like a consolidation that a bear market. That signal ended on January 4, 2012.

So what are we to make of this last "death cross", the one that occurred yesterday? [Read more...]

3 Energy Stocks Set To Soar

It is no secret that energy has been a big disappointment to many investors in 2015. I do not believe anyone predicted that crude oil would be so low during the month of August which is the peak travel month here in the US. That's all the more reason to see why these 3 energy-related stocks are doing what they're doing right now.

In today's video, I'm going to be analyzing each of these stocks and projecting what I think the upside targets will be in the near-term and longer-term.

The first stock I'm taking a look at is Xcel Energy Inc. (NYSE:XEL)
Xcel Energy Inc., through its subsidiaries, engages primarily in the generation, purchase, transmission, distribution, and sale of electricity in the United States. It operates through Regulated Electric Utility, Regulated Natural Gas Utility, and All Other segments. The company generates electricity using coal, nuclear, natural gas, hydro, solar, biomass, oil and refuse, and wind energy sources.

Last Friday, this stock signaled a major trend change at $35.15. The market closed on Friday at $35.24. [Read more...]

3 Stocks That Avoided Yesterday's Downturn And Deserve Your Attention

Certainly this first trading week in August has been none too kind to the markets. In fact, every major index is lower for the week, along with crude oil, gold and the euro! Not a particularly good start to August as the "death cross" creeps closer to execution. More on that next week.

The good news is there's always markets that are bucking the trend and today I'm going to be looking at three stocks that gave buy signals yesterday despite the drubbing that stocks took.

The first stock that I'm going to be looking at is American Tower Corporation (NYSE:AMT). American Tower Corporation is a real estate investment trust. It invests in real estate markets across the globe. The firm engages in leasing of space on multi-tenant communications sites to wireless service providers, radio and television broadcast companies, wireless data and data providers, government agencies and municipalities and tenants in a number of other industries. American Tower Corporation was founded in 1995 and is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts.

The next stock is [Read more...]

POLL: Are You Watching The BIG Republican Debate Tonight?

It doesn't matter if you are a Republican, Democrat or an Independent voter, tonight's debate promises to be both entertaining and unpredictable, all of which make great television. Think of it like reality TV, only this is real, as 10 Republican candidates vie for attention to break out and catch "The Donald."

In today's poll, I'm asking if you are going to watch what promises to be the most-watched political debate in history. I have two questions for you.

Are you watching tonight's Republican debate?

What's Up With Apple?

Since April, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has lost over $113 billion in share value and is now only up about 3 or 4% for the year.

What is going on in the world's most heavily-held stock?

There are some things in life that cannot be explained. People trying to explain the fall in Apple will present logical reasons why, but the reality is, the market's expectations and perceptions often trump common sense.

Reality check: Apple is still a huge company and still making boat loads of money with over $200 billion in cash sitting offshore. Apple is not going to go out of business anytime soon.

Apple's cash cow is the iPhone. Sales growth, while good, is slowing down as the market becomes saturated. The last big market Apple has to conquer is China and that market is getting to be very competitive. [Read more...]

New Week, New Month, New Opportunities

It's hard to believe how quickly this summer has passed, but here we are already in August.

Traditionally August is the hottest month of the year, but the question is, will the markets get hot in August and start moving up?

Let's take a look at what happened in July to find out which markets put smiles on investors' faces and which markets led some investors to the poor house.

The biggest loser last month in the major market category is crude oil, which lost an astounding 21.2% for the month of July. The next biggest loser was gold, which must have put a shudder in the spines of the gold bugs (do bugs have spines?).

The euro, while it lost ground, was nothing compared to the other two markets with a mere loss of 1.4%. All three of these markets did nothing to put a smile on investors faces unless they were either short or you had puts in the options market. [Read more...]

A Valued Trading Ritual

Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere! Here we are at the end of the week, the end of the month and anticipating a full moon this weekend. It has been quite a week and quite a month and I will be covering that in today's video.

One of my trading rituals that I do every week is look at how the markets have performed for the week. I don't mean that I look at every up and down movement, but I want to see if the market closed on a positive or negative note. I also do this on a monthly basis, at the end of every month or the last day of trading for the month, to see how a market has performed during the month. Much like my weekly ritual, I want to see if the markets I am following gained points or lost ground for the month.

I find this sort of exercise very refreshing as it takes out a lot of the clutter that surrounds the markets during the day. When you expand that exercise to a monthly time frame, you get to see a much clearer view of where a market is heading. [Read more...]
