Sometimes Markets Don't Make Sense

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your 1 p.m. market update for Tuesday, the 20th of September.

Sometimes markets don't make sense.

Commentators tend to think they have to make comments on every single blip in the market. Sometimes it's just not possible to put a handle on what drives a market on any given day. Today maybe one of those days when the news that came out was not particularly positive, yet the general market moved higher.

That was not the same story for the bank stocks that reflected the downgrade by Standard & Poor's for Italy overnight. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) also warned of continued economic weakness. And then the market's rally. Like I said earlier, sometimes it is impossible to tell what's going to happen on a day-to-day basis.

You have to look at the big trends in the market to help you when the market doesn't make sense. And right now the big trends continue to remain negative for the equity markets and positive for the gold market. Those two factors have not changed as of this writing.

We have discussed perception many times before and this is one of the most powerful elements in any market. One only has to look at the recent example of Netflix to understand how powerful perception can be in the market. In fact, it is one of the stocks we will look at today to show you just how our Trade Triangle technology works and how it can benefit you in the future.

Now, let's go to the 6 major markets we track every day and see how we can create and maintain your wealth in 2011. Continue reading "Sometimes Markets Don't Make Sense"

"I want a DIVORCE... "

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your 1 p.m. market update for Monday, the 19th of September.

I want a divorce…

Perhaps this is a little bit of a teaser headline, but the reality is Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, must be thinking that she would love a divorce from these other euro countries. Politically, it would solve a great many problems for her.

Here you have Germany, who is Europe's economic powerhouse, being pulled down by the likes of Greece, Spain, Portugal and Ireland. If you were in Angela Merkel's shoes right now, wouldn't you want to divorce these countries?

Now the politicians can't blame this one on the banks. They were the ones that overspent, they were the ones who recklessly put programs into place that just cost too much money. So there you have it! It's not the banks, it is the politicians who are the problem...

Does anybody believe that Greece is going to pay back what they owe? Their debt now stands at 165% of GDP. There is no way that Greece can get themselves out of this. Will Ireland, Spain, and Portugal be able to hold on if Greece goes under?

Lastly, everyone loved the market on the upside last week. Today that sentiment has changed as the problems in Europe are once again in the forefront of every investors mind. Europe is the tail that is wagging the world economy.

Now, let's go to the 6 major markets we track every day and see how we can create and maintain your wealth in 2011. Continue reading ""I want a DIVORCE... ""

Hello fellow traders everywhere. Adam Hewison here co-founder of MarketClub with your weekend update for the trading week ending on 9/16/11.

The battle between the Bulls and Bears continues in the equity markets. This past week the Bulls won with a very positive 5.35% return.

Out of the 6 markets that we track, only two closed with a positive gain for the week and they were the S&P 500 index and crude oil. We consider both of these moves counter trend rallies.

The Dollar Index saw some profit taking and closed down .85% for the week.

The Reuters/Jefferies CRB Commodity Index also came under pressure and closed down 1.38% in line with the general trend.

Let's go take a look at the markets and see how we can preserve and protect and grow your capital in 2011.

Is It Time To Ditch Your Blackberry?

Shares of RIMM took a major hit today, closing down 18.99% a share. This came in the wake of a highly disappointing August quarter financial report after the close on Thursday. RIMM reported disappointing sales, profits short of estimates, and weaker-than-expected sales of both BlackBerry smartphones and Playbook tablets.

However, MarketClub members have been short this market since March.

The trend is your friend, and so are MarketClub’s “Trade Triangles.”
