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...]

A Negative Sign For Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA)

Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere! It has been quite a week. In today's video, I am going to look at Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA) and share with you what I think could be going on in this hot stock.

Also on my radar today, Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ:SBUX), Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO), and Big Lots Inc. (NYSE:BIG). All three of these stocks gave major signals yesterday and I will be discussing their potential moves in the near-term.

I will be reviewing crude oil (NYMEX:CL.Z14.E) and gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) to see if there's any changes in their overall direction. Lastly, I will be looking at something that's quite unusual in all three major indices that could be a clue to the next short-term move.

As always, we invite your comments and feedback below this post. Please feel free to provide us future video topic suggestions.

Every success with MarketClub,

Under Armour, Inc. (NYSE:UA) Gives A Compression Buy

I was scanning through the Trade Triangles list this morning to see what was new and exciting when I discovered that Under Armour Inc. (NYSE:UA) had flashed a weekly buy signal to the upside.

Business Profile
Under Armour, Inc. (NYSE:UA), together with its subsidiaries, develops, markets, and distributes branded performance apparel, footwear, and accessories for men, women, and youth worldwide.

What I was looking for in this scan was weekly Trade Triangles that matched their monthly Trade Triangles. I wanted both the weekly and monthly Trade Triangles in the same direction and color. I have to admit, there were not many that match this criteria.

I found two more, but they were on the downside. These two stocks are in strong downtrends and look to be headed to the basement. [Read more...]

Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) 1 Year later

It was one year ago to the day that Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) had its IPO on the NYSE. The reason Twitter went with the NYSE was because of the recent fiasco that Facebook experienced with its own IPO on the NASDAQ. Twitter did not want to repeat Facebook's disastrous roll out with all its negative publicity.

For those of you who don't know what Twitter does, it is an online social communications and networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called "tweets".

On November 7th, 2013, Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) shares opened for trading at $26 and closed out the day at $44.90 which gave the company a valuation of $31 billion. This made instant billionaires of founders, Evan Williams who made $2.56 billion and Jack Dorsey who received $1.05 billion.

But it got even better because at the end of December 2013, Twitter had a market capitalization of $32.76 billion. Since those heady days in November and December of last year, things haven't gone quite so well for Twitter. For the year, Twitter is down over 34% and down almost 10% from its IPO closing price.

At the moment, this stock is not having a particularly happy birthday as all technical indicators are pointing south and show that the stock could go even lower from where we are now.

One area that could be very interesting for Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) is an integration trend I see between tweets and TV/cable shows. That would be a big source of revenue for Twitter. Other areas such as social revolutions or crowd disruptions certainly are powerful, but I'm not sure how Twitter can make any money off of social unrest, which we are seeing more and more of these days. After all, who wants to sponsor a unpopular revolution?

While Twitter has been around since 2006 and has grown substantially since that time, the question must be asked, is this going to be a relevant source of social information in five or ten years from now? Or is something else in development that can make tweets and Twitter a thing of the past?

The overriding trend at the moment is negative. How far this trend continues on the downside remains to be seen, but it would not appear as though anyone is rushing in to buy this stock at the moment.

In recognition of Twitter's birthday/one year anniversary, I decided to put together a quick poll to get your feedback on just what you think about Twitter.
