Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures in the June contract settled last Friday in New York at 67.33 a barrel while currently trading at 68.35 up about a $1 for the trading week hitting a 3 1/2 year high & in yesterdays trade prices went up as high as 69.55 before profit-taking ensued. I'm currently not involved in this market as the chart structure is terrible as the 10 day low stands at 62.01 as the monetary risk is too high, however, I am certainly not recommending any type of short position as this trend is strong as the fundamental and technical picture remains bullish. Strong demand for crude oil and the entire energy sector continues to push prices higher as I still think we will trade above the $70 level in the weeks ahead as global supplies have dwindled over the last year due to the fact that worldwide economies are improving which is a terrific thing to see in my opinion. Crude oil prices are clearly trading above their 20 and 100-day moving average as this has now become one of the strongest trends in 2018 as I think this will start to support the precious metals and the agricultural market down the road. I'm looking at a commodity rally to finish out the 2nd half of 2018 as the Trump tariffs talks have finally subsided and I do think that the U.S. dollar which remains choppy at the current time will drift lower in the future helping supporting prices.
TREND: HIGHER
CHART STRUCTURE: POOR
VOLATILITY: INCREASING

Two Cannabis Giants Trading 61% Below 52-Week High

Analysis originally distributed on April 4, 2018 By: Michael Vodicka of Cannabis Stock Trades

Warren Buffet is the most successful investor of all-time. His net worth of $84 billion makes him the third richest person in the world.

Buffet’s fortune was built on a contrarian view on investing. He once said, “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.”

This is good advice for the cannabis sector right now.

After posting huge gains in 2017, the global cannabis sector fell into a bear market in the first quarter of 2018.

However, despite that short-term weakness, the long-term picture for the cannabis industry and cannabis stocks has never looked better.

Cannabis stocks got off to a blazing start in early 2018. Since climbing to an all-time high, the sector spent most of February and March trickling lower.

The Canadian Cannabis Index fell 15% in the first quarter.

10-Year Note Futures

The 10-year note in the June contract was basically unchanged for the trading week at 121/02 and has been going sideways over the last couple of months as traders are looking for some fresh fundamental news. I have been recommending a bearish position from the 120/18 level and if you took the trade continue to keep the stop loss at 121/18 as the original risk was around $1,000 per contract plus slippage & commission as the yield on the 10-year note is at 2.82%, and volatility remains very low. The U.S. stock market has experienced incredible volatility this week, and when the stocks are sharply lower the notes rally and vice versa as yesterday, we had a 700 point reversal in the Dow Jones. I'm still negative the entire bond sector as I think the yields are way too low as the United States experienced a 2.9% GDP number last quarter which is very solid. The 10-year note is trading right at its 20-day but still below its 100-day moving average as the trend is mixed. I still think prices will crack the 3% level in the weeks ahead so stay short & continue to place the proper stop loss as I still believe the risk/reward are in your favor as the longer-term downtrend line remains intact.
TREND: MIXED - LOWER
CHART STRUCTURE: SOLID

Sales Jump 85% For Cannabis Security Company

Analysis originally distributed on March 28, 2018 By: Michael Vodicka of Cannabis Stock Trades

Due to restrictive federal banking regulations, cannabis dispensaries are known to operate with large amounts of cash.

Copious amounts of cash have attracted criminal activity to the industry.

For example, in 2016 a security guard at a Colorado dispensary was killed.

In late summer 2017, a cannabis dispensary in San Fransisco was robbed of $600,000 in cannabis products.

Police say these kind of robberies are becoming more common.

If you poke around on the Internet, you will find hundreds of stories about criminals targeting cannabis dispensaries for cash and product.

Until the US cannabis industry is free from these restrictive federal banking regulations, cannabis dispensaries remain as hot targets for criminals.

While this is a speed bump in the long-term growth potential of the US cannabis industry, it's also creating a significant opportunity for a former military security specialist and his promising security company.

This little-known security company: Continue reading "Sales Jump 85% For Cannabis Security Company"
