Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your mid-day market update for Wednesday, the 5th of October.
Beware of Mob Madness!

What is it about mobs that make them so dangerous? The problem is mob mentality. Here you have a group of people who individually are regular folks, but put them in a crowd and they lose all sense of what is right and wrong. They justify their actions because of what they see other people doing.

Using social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, mobs were getting together for the Arab spring in the Middle East. Now we have mobs getting together in Greece and other parts of Europe, even my homeland, England! And we have the same problem here in major cities in the United States. This is what I call the dark side of social media, and one that I believe is so very dangerous.

Is it healthy? Is it good for America, or any country? Absolutely not!

One of the most fascinating books I have ever read about the market is Charles Mackay's, "Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds." It is a history of popular folly, first published in 1841. The book chronicles its subjects in three parts: "National Delusions", "Peculiar Follies", and "Philosophical Delusions". This book has gathered a body of academic support as a work of considerable importance in the history of social psychology and psychopathology. I highly recommend that you pick up a copy.

As you see, 170 years later we haven't changed very much as human beings. Understanding this mob phenomenon can be a huge advantage and is going to be one of the keys to being successful in the next 12 months. As always, we will do our best to keep you informed and on the right track.

It's official! We are in a BEAR MARKET in the SP500.

For MarketClub members this is old news, as we alerted all members to either exit or place short positions on the S&P500 on August 2nd at 1258.07. That's over two months ago!

How much further do we have to go on the downside? That's a legitimate question, however, with Bear markets they tend to persist longer and take more pain than most investors are willing to sit through.

As you know from watching our videos, we are projecting lower levels for the S&P 500, as well as the banks and financial institutions. Those moves on not over yet.

In today's presentation, we will be talking about three markets that are in the news. This will be a regular feature and we will try to bring you information that is timely, informative and educational. We will be talking about stocks, the Forex markets, and the futures markets.

Here are 3 markets that are in the news:

Many investors are saying, "thank goodness that the month of September is over!" Do you share that sentiment?

Welcome to Q4 and the first trading day in the month of October. It is the "trick or treat" month, as we celebrate Halloween at the end of the month. Is October going to provide a treat for investors? Or will it sucker them in and trick the market down to new lows?

As stated before, the problems in Greece are very real and are not going be solved to anyone's satisfaction. So what happens when a country defaults on its sovereign debt? No one knows what the answer will be to that question. The market however, will figure it out and deliver the answers that smart investors are looking for.

The month of September was brutal for most buy and hold investors, and that is why we advocate being nimble in these amazing economic times.

Now let's go to the 6 major markets we track and update every trading day and see how we can create and maintain your wealth in 2011. Continue reading "Is October Going to Provide A Treat For Investors?"

What a week! What a month! What a quarter!

Major market trends prevailed through out the third quarter, as market after market succumbed to our Trade Triangle signals. For most market's, the tone was a negative for the month and quarter. One shining star, was the dollar index, which was one of the very few markets that trended higher during this time frame.

As we start the final quarter of 2011, we still have that pesky little contagion problem in Europe that has never really gone away. How much that has to weigh on the markets remains to be seen.

I believe that Q4 is going to offer some exceptional trading opportunities, but these opportunities will only be available to those traders who do their homework. Before we get into looking at the markets, I wanted to share this personal note with you, here it is. On the cover of my workbook, where I write down all my various game-plans for the markets I trade, it says this. "Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it". It sums up as to how I look at the markets. No successful trader I know, wings it, they all work hard and do their homework, and work hard at staying successful.

My wish for you in Q4 and 2012, is that you too will work hard at trading success. I am here to help you along in your journey.

All the best,
