Are Stocks Going To Sizzle Or Wilt This Summer?

Hello MarketClub members everywhere. We are all back from a long holiday weekend and traders are wondering what's in store for the summer – are stocks going to sizzle and go higher or are they going to wilt under the threat of higher interest rates?

MarketClub's Mid-day Market Report

Predicting the future is a hazardous profession at best. So often I have seen respected economists and gurus fall flat on their faces with future predictions. The best way to look at the future, in my opinion, is that it will arrive and there will be many opportunities. That is why I let the market predict what it wants to do. Remember, the market is made up of millions of people whose collective judgment is often wrong at the top and bottom of the market. What is always be right, in the long run, is the market itself.

In today's video, I will be looking at the usual suspects – indices, gold, crude oil and one or two stocks that look interesting.

Stay focused and disciplined.

Every success with MarketClub,

All Is Well This Memorial Day Weekend - Right?

Hello MarketClub members everywhere. As we come to the end of the week and the trading month and face the long Memorial Day weekend, I have a slightly uneasy feeling about the markets.

Later on today, Janet Yellen the Fed chair is set to speak with Harvard professor Gregory Mankiw as she receives the University's Radcliffe Medal.

Boy, they sure like to give each other awards don't they? It's too bad that we can't give an award to the economy which still has sub 2% growth with record low-interest rates!!

Here's the problem as I see it, the FED said that it was it was going to rely on data as to whether or not it would raise interest rates. Now they're saying you have to see how things go – really?

It has seemed to me for quite some time now that the Fed has mishandled this whole financial meltdown and quite honestly have no clue as to what to do about it. It also seems that they lack any common sense even thinking about or talking about negative interest rates – how stupid can they be?

Ms. Yellen and President Obama - the answer is not complicated - lower taxes and cut all the red tape, hoops and hurdles that business have jump through. Then all you have to do is stand back and keep out of the way of the economy as speeds up growth and job creation.

Not complicated!

Okay, having gotten all that off my chest let's take a look at the markets. [Read more...]

Is Apple About To Buy Netflix?

Hello MarketClub members everywhere. The buzz around Wall Street this morning is that Apple is going to buy Netflix. As you probably know, Apple has a huge cash hoard rumored to be somewhere around the $200 billion level. Netflix is worth perhaps 40 or $50 billion, so it doesn't take a lot of imagination to see how a deal like this could work. Apple wants to move into the content and distribution space and Netflix might just be the vehicle to do that.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL): Here is the rundown on Apple, several days ago Warren Buffett purchased Apple stock as he thought it was undervalued. Based on the Trade Triangles I'm on the sidelines in having taken a small loss of $3.39. Technically the $104 level should present a major barrier for Apple. One thing to remember, this is only a rumor and it is not supported by a strong technical picture. The biggest concern I have is the current lack of innovation by the company. In my opinion, without innovation a tech company like Apple is going to have a hard go of it. [Read more...]

It's All Systems Go For This One Index

Hello MarketClub members everywhere. I just got back from a few days in California visiting my new 2-month-old grandson which I'm very excited to say is a well and a very hungry little guy. While I was away the index markets just thrashed about until my return when yesterday we saw a significant move to the upside in the indexes.

The big surprise for many traders was the big drop in gold prices. I will be looking at that drop today based on the Trade Triangles and you may be surprised to see what they were indicating and showing traders in the last 10 days.

Crude oil continues to be in a strong uptrend, but that may be coming to an end as crude is fast approaching the $50 mark. [Read more...]

Stocks Struggle To Find Direction

Hello MarketClub members everywhere. As we start the week, it looks as if the market is still trying to digest what the Federal Reserve said in its meeting minutes last week. All eyes will be on the housing, PMI and wage numbers due this week as well as commentary for the regional Fed Chiefs. The Regional Fed chiefs for St. Louis, San Francisco, and Philadelphia are due to speak Monday, while Chair Janet Yellen is due to deliver remarks on Friday.

The big mover of the day is Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). It's jumped over 1.5% on rumors of large iPhone 7 orders and after Taiwan's Economic Daily News reported that the iPhone maker has asked suppliers to prepare production for a new version of its smartphones.

Key levels to watch this week: [Read more...]
