Hello, traders everywhere. Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub, with your market update for Friday the 8th of July.
It was a shocker. We only created 18,000 jobs and unemployment jumped up to 9.2% - how can we say things are getting better when here we are basically two years after the low in the equity markets with unemployment still stubbornly stuck over 9% and probably going back over 10%.
Folks, there is no "Plan B". For the past two years, this administration has declared warfare on business, particularly small businesses - the folks who actually create jobs in this country!
It is amazing to me that they could be so blinded with their political philosophy that they have actually forgotten that there are real people out of work that need jobs. Small businesses - the very people who create 70% of all jobs in America, are being punished as the current administration wants to tax them more. How stupid can things get. Oh, they can get pretty stupid.
As I mentioned yesterday in my 1 p.m. update, I felt that the S&P was in thin air and also as cyclic high. I think we could be seeing the start of a 15 to 20 day correction. We also recommended taking some money off the table in our crude oil trade which also went very well.
As mentioned earlier I'm doing this report a little bit earlier as I feel today could be an important turning point in the markets.

Hello traders everywhere. Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub, with your 1 p.m. market update for Thursday the 7th of July.
The indexes are all higher for the day and are now close to major resistance basis the S&P 500. Our trade triangle technology has been bullish on the S&P 500 since $1,300 and we are sitting on some nice profits. However I do believe that we are close to a cycle high period and that we could see some profit-taking coming into the index markets next week. The current rally has been on extremely light volume even for summer trading.
Crude oil pushed upwards to the $100 a barrel range today and I think perhaps we are close to seeing this market peter out and take a rest in the short term. Technically, the market is fast approaching the upward level of its Donchian trade channel. I expect that we will see some profit taking coming in around current levels.
Other markets were generally quiet so far today.

Hello traders everywhere. Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub, with your 1 p.m. market update for Wednesday the 6th of July.
The stars of the show today have to be the metal markets. Gold has rallied $50 from the low that we witnessed last week and is up over 1% today. Silver is even better with a rally of 1.82%. It seems as though the global anxiety factor is creeping back into the markets and people are getting more and more distrustful of what's going on in the world.
The question is, can the Democrats and Republicans stop their bickering long enough and come to an agreement on the debt ceiling? Eventually, I'm sure there will be some sort of compromise that will probably make both the liberals and the conservatives mad. It's really time to stop all this bickering and start making some hard and difficult choices. I'm not sure the current set of politicians have the chutzpah to do this.
The banks stocks took a little hit today and it's clear that these stocks are not out of the woods yet.

Hello traders everywhere. Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub, with your 1 p.m. market update for Tuesday the 5th of July.
The big story today has to be the moves in both crude oil and precious metals. Both of these markets have made strong upward moves. The crude oil dump of 30 million barrels is history and it underscores just how little influence anyone has over what is arguably the most precious commodity for any industrialized country.
Is it just me or is there a whole lot of smoke and mirrors going on in the political/financial world today. It seems that politicians continue to kick the can down the road when no politician either here in the states or anywhere else for that matter wants to say there is no more money!
Is there a chance that Germany wants out of the euro? I believe there is. I also think that German citizens will ultimately become enraged at having to bail out weaker countries like Greece, Spain, Portugal. France of course has a huge risk as they have the most exposure to Greece. Continue reading "Crude Oil + Precious Metals = Strong Moves"
