Tesla Disappoints And How The Trade Triangles Saved The Day

Yesterday we discussed how the Trade Triangles can help you take advantage of earnings. We had a lively discussion on the blog, with many members asking and explaining how the Trade Triangle technology works during the earnings season.

This morning I randomly picked out four well-known stocks that reported yesterday, they are: [Read more...]

How To Successfully Play The Earnings Game - And Win 95% Of The Time

Today I'm going to tackle something completely different and see if MarketClub's Trade Triangle technology can help you anticipate good or bad earnings before they are announced.

I randomly selected 20 stocks that have recently reported earnings and took a look to see how the Trade Triangles were positioned in each of those stocks before each company announced their earnings. Again, I only used the market-proven Trade Triangle technology to see whether you should be long or short a stock, or just be on the sidelines.

The results even surprised me, out of the 20 stocks that I picked, you would have been in positions in 12 of them. 11 were outright winners and there was one loser. You would have taken a position in the market on the close before the company reported its earnings. You would then exit the position on the close of business the next day.

So how did the Trade Triangles do with the other eight stocks?

The remaining eight stocks were on the sidelines. Being on the sidelines helped avoid five losing trades, meaning the market did not live up to its earnings. However on the other side of the coin, you missed out on three gains by being on the sidelines. When you analyze the missed gains and the avoided losses, you still come out ahead by having a position on the sidelines.

Here is a list of all the stocks and the dates. You can simply look at the chart and check the results for yourself. [Read more...]

3 Stocks That Are Primed To Move Higher

Today I'll be looking at 3 stocks that I believe are uniquely set up to move higher. All of the stocks that I will be looking at in today's video are exhibiting strong internal signals that further compliment the Trade Triangle technology.

In today's, I will share with you exact entry points, upside target objectives and the technical picture for each stock. I'm pretty sure that you have heard of all of the stocks that I'm analyzing today. All the stocks are currently trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

The first stock I will be looking at is LifeLock Inc. (NYSE:LOCK) and it's presently trading around the $15.5 mark. [Read more...]

Greece, Nazis And 3 Strong Sectors

It's hard for me to believe that the newly installed Greek government is now calling for Germany to make reparations of some $250 billion because of what the Nazis did 75 years ago to Greece. Such is the world we live in.

Make no mistake about it, Greece is the Achilles' heel of the euro and just this morning Alan Greenspan, former head of the U.S. Fed, came out and indicated that it was just a matter of time before Greece exits the euro. I couldn't agree more with him, Greece is just an accident waiting to happen.

Unlike the United States, which is one nation with one currency and laws, the euro has been cobbled together with a number of countries that have nothing in common with each other. They don't speak the language, they don't have the same customs and traditions, and they certainly don't share the same discipline for work. [Read more...]

10 Interesting Stocks And 1 Amazing Trading Technique

In today's video, I'm going to be analyzing 10 stocks that look particularly interesting. Six of these stocks are in strong uptrends, while the remaining four are in various levels of transition.

Today's jobs report seems to be lending a positive short term feel in the stock market. We are at the end of the week, and I see lots of opportunities for trading the 52-week high on a Friday rules.

All you have to do is visit Smart Scan and choose 52 Week Highs, filter the results and bingo, you will have a list of target stocks to trade over the weekend.

This technique has been around for decades. I first learned the rules of this weekend approach from a trading friend of mine named Bill when I was trading in the pits in Chicago in the 80s. When Bill first told me about this technique I was skeptical. It was only after I followed these rules on paper for a while that I became a true believer. Believe me, a lot of money has been made using this technique. I made this video is a couple of years ago and nothing has changed in this trading technique, which goes to prove just how powerful this little weekend trading trick is.

Let's start looking at those 10 interesting stocks, some of which will lend themselves to the 52-week high on Friday rules.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Every success with MarketClub,

Under Armour, Greece And The End Of An Era

Let's start off with Under Armour Inc. (NYSE:UA). This company, located in Baltimore, is making some serious moves into the social media heath-fitness app market. Kevin Plank, who is the founder and chairman, just paid $560 million, an astronomical amount of money or so it would seem for two fitness apps.

MyFitnessPal has more than 80 million registered users and UA has called it "the leading free resource" for providing calorie-and-workout-related data. UA is paying $475 million to acquire the service.

UA will pay $85 million for Endomondo, a fitness tracking platform that lets users map, record and share workouts through social networks. It has 20 million registered users in Europe. [Read more...]

All Eyes On Crude Oil

Has crude oil bottomed out? That's the question on investors minds today as this market has moved up close to 10% in just the past few days. I have been warning of a rally based on the positive divergences I saw on the daily charts and the fact that the end of January marked the seventh month in a row that crude oil had closed lower.

Whether this is a dead cat bounce or a reversal of major proportions in the oil patch sector remains to be seen. Certainly, the market is getting close to making some major technical reversal signals and should they kick in I will, of course, follow them. What often happens with prolonged market trends whether they are on the upside or downside they tend to lull traders and investors to sleep who are expecting to see more of the same.

In today's video, I'll be looking at crude oil (CL.H15.E) and sharing with you the exact point where crude will reverse its downward trend and start a new bull trend. Whether this will be a dead cat bounce, meaning just a short covering rally or a true reversal to the upside remains to be seen. I'll be examining both scenarios in today. [Read more...]

Do You Have Discipline In Your Corner?

Congratulations go to the New England Patriots for winning this year's Super Bowl. It is perhaps a mixed blessing for investors, as any time a team from the American Football Conference (AFC) wins the Super Bowl, the stock market closes lower for the year. Although, I think investing on the outcome of a football game is not going to get you to where you want to be financially.

Of all the tools available to the trader, none is more important than his or her own mind! Lack of mental discipline has to be a significant cause of losses in the marketplace. Why else would traders with years of experience and reliable systems fail to be consistent winners? Show a 6-year-old child a chart and he will tell you if a market is going up or down by simple observation. Yet, 80% or 90% of all traders end up as losers. The market doesn't beat you, you beat yourself! You are your own worst enemy!

Challenges To Your Mental Discipline

Challenges of a trader's mental discipline exist in many areas of the marketplace and appear in many different forms. Virtually every trader who has spent any amount of time in the commodity business has experienced one or more of the following upsets to his mentality: [Read more...]

Shocking News From Amazon And Google

After the bell yesterday, Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) announced, to the surprise of many, that they made a profit. That, of course, is good news if you were long their stock. The Trade Triangle technology got this one wrong, but also got it right as well, let me explain.

Prior to Amazon's earnings announcement, the Trade Triangles were on the sidelines having received a signal to cover any short positions on January 23rd at $314.75. While the Trade Triangles missed the big 10% up-move in after-hours trading yesterday, it certainly did not cause any harm either. Not getting caught wrong-footed in the market is an important element to successful investing. Or to use Warren Buffett's number one investment rule: #1. Do not lose money. His second investment rule is: #2 Do not forget rule number one.

Jeff Bezos, the chief honcho at Amazon and its driving force, decided to hold back on some some of his expansion spending and give investors something to smile about while placating the street, which was beginning to think that Amazon would never make money. [Read more...]

What Do McDonald's, Microsoft and Yahoo All Have In Common?

The simple answer is that all had new leaders in the last couple of years. But, here is the problem - they're all old school, old hat, and not so relevant anymore to investors.

Take a look at the latest casualty in the boardroom. Don Thompson was the CEO of McDonald's Corp. (NYSE:MCD) and he held that position for just over two years, during which time McDonald's went nowhere and had zero growth. He is stepping down effective March 1st and Steve Easterbrook, will be taking over the reins of McDonald's. The problem I see with McDonald's is that it's associated with fast, unhealthy food when the entire food industry is turning to healthy eating. You only have to look at places like Baja Fresh, Chipotle and a host of new up-and-comers in the fast, casual, healthy dining service industry to see where McDonald's has completely missed the boat. Like the stock market, perception is everything and the perception is McDonald's just doesn't cut it anymore with most young parents and millennials.

Ray Kroc had a brilliant idea when he first stumbled on the original McDonald's in California back in 1954. Here he discovered Dick and Mac McDonald's fast food restaurant in San Bernardino, California. One year later he incorporated McDonald's Corp. and the rest is history. Now 60 years later, like a lot of corporations, it has lost its relevance in the marketplace and it's going to be extremely hard to play catch-up and change their image. What do you think?

When was the last time you were in a McDonald's?

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) had a similar start to McDonald's, only this time, a young Bill Gates bought a program from a hacker for $50,000 (remember DOS?) and promptly turned around and licensed it out to IBM for a cool $1,000,000 a year. [Read more...]
