December Can Be A Difficult Month For Trading

Well, here we are in December, the final trading month of 2016, and what a year it has been. After what can only be described as the most controversial, unorthodox and stressful presidential campaign in history I think the country just want to move on and into the holiday season.

For 2016 the major indexes have performed remarkably well. For the year the DOW has gained 10%, the S&P 500 7.24% and finally the NASDAQ is up almost 5%.

December has traditionally been a positive month for stocks and this December could well continue that trend. One word of warning about December, after about the second week of trading, liquidity begins to shrink dramatically as many traders and brokerage companies start to wind down operations for the year. Traditionally most market participants look forward to the holidays and a well deserved mental and physical break from the markets. This year is no different, in fact, I think it will be magnified as the equity markets have all performed well. Unless we see a "Black Swan" event in December, we expect to see stocks remain flat to positive month.

The reason I want to bring the month of December to attention is simply to alert you to this one fact. If you have not made your money for the year yet, the last two weeks of December is not the time to be taking big risks and swinging for the fences. [Read more...]

THE POLITICAL SEESAW

Political uncertainty has roiled the markets as of late with initial predictions pricing-in a Clinton victory. As election night unfolded and a Trump victory was evident, the markets responded negatively in pre-market trading with the Dow dropping over 700 points. Upon the realization that Trump was in fact the president-elect, the markets bounced back and the Dow ended the day up ~300 points. In particular, healthcare related stocks from pharmaceutical companies to pharmacies and the wholesalers in-between all notched significant gains as traders viewed a republican controlled government in positive light with regard to this sector. The iShares NASDAQ Biotechnology Index (Ticker IBB) registered a $25 per share or 9% gain on the election news. It appears that investors are factoring-in a healthcare-friendly government that will be in contrast to the likes of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders with regard to mergers and acquisitions and governmental regulations throughout the industry.

3 Little-Known Cannabis Stocks Beating the S&P 500 by at Least 1,000% in 2016

We could not be more excited to share this post from Micheal Vodicka of Cannabis Stock Trades!

Cannabis Stock Trades is an exciting new site that will help traders profit from the explosive legal cannabis industry. Cannabis Stock Trades is powered by INO.com.


The U.S. economy is in a funk.

Second-quarter gross domestic product (GDP), the broadest indicator of economic strength, clocked in at just 1.1%, well below expectations of 2.4%.

In economics, 1.1% GDP growth is the equivalent of “holding your nose just above water.”

In the meantime, the S&P 500 is mired in a nasty earnings recession. Earnings have now declined for the last five quarters. The last time that happened was in 2009 during the financial crisis.

The weak economy has created a dilemma. Investors are desperately searching for growth.

I've got the solution. [Read more...]
