Here's One Good Bet For 2016 And It Could Help Keep You Healthy

This little stock popped up on my radar yesterday with the help of the Trade Triangle technology. Whole Foods Market, Inc. (NASDAQ:WFM) is one of my favorite stores and I shop there every week.

Whole Foods has been in a sustained downtrend for the last nine months, but it appears as though the downtrend is over and Whole Foods is set for some healthy gains in 2016. I think it has the potential to double your money in 2016. Given the upside potential for Whole Foods, I feel that the risk factor is not that big.

As you well know, there are no guarantees in investing and risk is a factor, but in this case, the risk-reward ratio is in your favor.

I will be taking an in-depth look at Whole Foods Market, Inc. (NASDAQ:WFM) today along with the other key markets to see how these markets have fared in 2015, which is rapidly coming to a close. [Read more...]

Trading Tip #11 - The Magic Hour

Do not buy at the market open. There is always a pop at the market open which fades away in the first hour or so.

12 Days of Trading Tips Day 11

The best time to buy a stock is about 45 minutes to an hour into the market and late in the afternoon, or as I like to call it, "Magic Hour" which is after 3 pm EST before the market closes.

On the flip side, the best time to sell is at the market open or about 1 pm EST, right after lunch.

Yesterday Provided A Huge Clue To The Market

The market action yesterday in the major indices and many other markets has to be viewed as negative. The major indices all created what are called bearish engulfing patterns.

Bearish engulfing patterns occur when the market opens higher than the previous day's close and then closes below the low of the previous day. The main body of the candle totally engulfs the body of the previous candle. I will visually explain this phenomenon in today's video update. If you are interested in candlestick charts, I have a PDF titled, "17 Money Making Candlestick Formations." You can download the PDF here.

Should the indices closed lower than the close we saw on Thursday, it would confirm a top in the market and indicate further weakness.

I may be sounding like a broken record, but the reality is, December has turned out to be an extraordinarily volatile month. Historically, December tends to be choppy and volatile, but this year is proven to be the granddaddy of them all. [Read more...]

Trading Tip #8 - Let Your Profits Run

Let your profits run.

12 Days of Trading Tips Day 8

Letting your profits run is tough mentally and often leads to traders closing out trades too early. It feels risky, but once you understand that trying to protect every penny of your profit prevents you from making a bigger profit, you will be on the road to success.

Don't sell on fear and impatience. Remember your plan.

Will Santa Be Happy With Yesterday's Rate Increase?

Before I dive into yesterday's rate increase, I just want to ask you, are you enjoying the 12 Days of Trading Tips? It's always a good thing to refresh your mind and energize yourself by reviewing some of the fundamentals of trading. I think today's trading tip on market timing is one everyone should read as it underscores the old market saying, "Bulls make money, bears make money and pigs get slaughtered."

Yesterday Janet Yellen, Federal Reserve Chairman, finally gave her long-awaited blessing to raise interest rates. It's perhaps the most anticipated rate hike in history and the first jump in almost a decade. I believe that the Fed should have acted months ago and they are still trying to figure out how to clean up the mess they created. [Read more...]

Trading Tip #7 - Market Timing

Don't try to buy the bottom or sell the top. It's incredibly hard to time the market.

12 Days of Trading Tips Day 7

How many times have you sold at what you thought was the top only to see the market head higher? And conversely, bought at what you thought was the bottom only to see the market erode further? Instead, focus on hitting that middle 80% of the trade.

It's OK to give up a little bit at the beginning and end of the trade to make a profit.

After all, a profit is a profit.

Trading Tip #6 - Think Percentages VS. Number Of Shares

Think percentages vs. number of shares.

12 Days of Trading Tips Day 6

As you build your portfolio of stocks, concentrate on the percentage of your overall portfolio you want to invest and don't focus on the number of shares.

For example, one of the biggest mistakes novice investors make is buying 50, 75 or 100 shares of a stock. Instead, take your overall portfolio value and divide it evenly into percentages and then purchase your investments according to this plan.

Remember tip #5? It's easier to diversify using percentages.
