SCORE ONE FOR THE TRADE TRIANGLES

The Euro against the Dollar is one market which has been moving steadily higher. This upward trend has been to the chagrin of many hedge funds who have been forced to cover their short Euro positions. The thinking among many hedge funds was with all the problems in Europe, the Euro was going to drop much lower against the Dollar. The reality of the market place had a very different idea as the Euro has moved to its best levels since the middle of October.

That is the principal danger of listening and relying on the fundamentals to justify your position. When you listen to the market with the help of our Trade Triangle technology, you get a very different story for the Euro/Dollar relationship. The Trade Triangles rely on market action, which in the case of this cross-rate, the trend was clearly in favor of the Euro. The bottom line and the lesson to learn here is that the market is the ultimate arbitrator of its own trends. It is of our opinion that it is best to trade with market action and leave the fundamentals to others. [Read more...]

Daily Video Update: Politics and markets make strange bedfellows

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your mid-day market update for Tuesday, the 2nd of October.

Not to get too political, but I believe the markets are going to be in a holding zone for the next day or two waiting for the first presidential debate between Pres. Obama and Mitt Romney, that takes place on Wednesday.

Here's a question for you... Who, in your opinion, is more important? Pres. Obama, Mitt Romney, or Ben Bernanke?

From the market's point of view, I would have to say that Ben Bernanke is more important than either President Obama or Mitt Romney. Bernanke and the Fed are committed to pouring more money into the equity markets with their "QE3-print-more-money-and-to-H#ll-with-the-future-plan". I guess they figure that we can find another solution to the problem later … YEAH RIGHT!!

Equities based on the FED are still in a bullish phase and we have an upside target of $1,550 on the S&P 500 some time next year.

Most traders have written off the Euro, but our Trade Triangles are saying that we are in a bull market, at least for the moment, and the dollar is the one with the bigger problems.

Inflation Watch: Pressure is building on the Reuters/Jeffries CRB Index. Inflation will be arriving in 2013.

Wild Card: Without a doubt, the wild card for everything is the Middle East. We see no positives on that front.

Daily Video Update: Hello Q4, Hello gold, and goodbye Dollar

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 1st of October.

The first day of October started dramatically with the price of gold shooting to its best levels in almost a year. We consider this to be a real indicator of peoples' fears about what's going on both in Europe, and more importantly the United States. Technically we have been bullish on gold, based on our Trade Triangle technology and we are holding onto all our long positions. We believe that gold will surpass the $2,000 an ounce mark in the not-too-distant future.

We also want to pay close attention to the crude oil market, as we believe this market can put in a strong performance in Q4. Equities are still in a bullish phase and we are targeting the S&P 500 to move to $1,550 some time next year.

Don't rule out further strength in the Euro. No matter what the problems are in Europe, we may have bigger problems here in the US.

Inflation Watch: A move over $320 on the Reuters/Jeffries CRB Index will be a sure sign that inflation will be coming on strong in 2013.

Daily Video Update: Is gold becoming the new Apple?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your mid-day market update for Friday, the 28th of September.

As we come to the end of the week, and more importantly, the end of the quarter we see gold closing near its highest levels ever on a quarterly basis. So it begs the question, is gold going to become the new Apple for investors?

We think so, and with all of our indicators positive on gold, we believe we will see this market continue its upward trend for the next several months. We would not be surprised to see gold break over the $2,000 level before the end of the year.

It looks like the S&P 500 index is going to have its best closing quarter in 19 months. We would not be surprised to see this market move up on the close, as it is the end of the quarter.

Daily Video Update: Forget politics, forget the news, forget the election... just focus on what the market is doing

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your mid-day market update for Thursday, the 27th of September.

How can anybody make any sense of this market with all of the conflicting signals in Europe, the looming fiscal cliff, and the upcoming general election?

At MarketClub, we listen to the most important voice of all, the market itself. I'm sure someone has impressed upon you at some point to "be a good listener". It is amazing what you can learn when you just listen to what is being said.

Simplify your life, go with the flow. Go with what the markets are telling you. Right now, they are telling us they want to go higher.

At the moment, the major trend in the all of the US indices is on the upside, so that's the way we are going to be approaching the market until the market tells us that the trend has changed.

MarketClub TV for 9/26/12: Forget the iPhone 5 - I'm not upgrading!

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your mid-day market update for Wednesday, the 26th of September.

Apple, Apple, Apple... by now I'm sure you've heard about the iPhone5. Yes, it is a wonderful phone, but I for one will not be upgrading to the iPhone5. I know it's faster, it's thinner, it's bigger, it has an App to leap over tall buildings. But what drives the iPhone is the software. The new iOS6 operating system, which I downloaded to my iPhone on Saturday, makes me a happy camper, plus I don't want to carry something around in my pocket that is bigger. I don't see any need to upgrade to the new iPhone5, and I think I'm not alone. After the initial surge, I think sales will drop off as others may share my same feeling. I was in my local Apple store this past weekend and the store was fairly busy, but no more than normal.

Riots in Spain and Greece today prove nobody wants to take a haircut with the new austerity measures that need to be implemented to receive the benefits of the European bailout.

The big question that concerns me, is the US next? With record gun sales and a persistent unemployment problem, can social unrest be that far away? Charles Plosser, the president of the Philadelphia Fed Bank, said that he did not think that QE3 or QE Infinity is going to help the economy anytime soon. Not exactly what you want to hear from a member of the Fed, and certainly not a ringing endorsement of the Fed's policy to just chuck more money at the economy, hoping something will work.

The reality is, the strategy that the Fed has embarked on has never worked over any length of time. Only businesses, not the Government, can create lasting jobs in America.

Okay, time to get off my rant mobile.

Daily Video Update: Consumer confidence jumps to a seven month high

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your mid-day market update for Tuesday, the 25th of September.

Let me start off by saying thank you to Jeremy, who has been providing the daily update to you while I was cruising the Gulf of Maine in a 112-year-old three-masted schooner.

What has happened since I was enjoying my cruising days? Not a lot I'm afraid, the markets continue to consolidate and regroup after their recent gains. There have been no major trend changes since I was away, which is good.

Looking across the pond at Europe, I see the same story and the back-and-forth, kicking the can down the road continues. It looks as though the Euro has pulled back from its bull run, however the trend continues to be positive.

Daily Video Update: Global economy sends the market lower

Hello traders everywhere! Jeremy Lutz here with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 24th of September.

Stocks are down today, as global economic growth concerns again take center stage. Worries over a global economic slowdown and the strengthening dollar pushed commodities down, further weighing on the markets. Crude Oil and Copper are taking a hit as demand in China slows down.

In Europe, stocks were decidedly lower as concerns over Greece and Spain intensified. Spain remains in focus this week, with the results of bank stress tests due Monday.

Daily Video Update: Spain Looks to Secure Bailout

Hello traders everywhere! Jeremy Lutz here with your mid-day market update for Friday, the 21st of September.

Stocks have continued to perform well over the course of the trading day today. While buying interest has remained relatively subdued, the markets continue to benefit from news out of Europe.

That news of course is that European Union officials are working behind the scenes to pave the way for a new Spanish rescue program and unlimited bond buying by the European Central Bank. Will this actually happen? Or is just a another smoke screen coming out of Europe?

Crude Oil is continuing to struggle and I noticed a powerful technical indicator in Gold today that we'll discuss.

Daily Video Update: Starbucks goes to war

Hello traders everywhere! Jeremy Lutz here with your mid-day market update for Thursday, the 20th of September.

The markets have trimmed earlier losses but remain lower after reports showed jobless claims fell less than forecasted, while the Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank's gauge of regional manufacturing activity remained sluggish. Investors are also concerned about the global economy after weak data from China and Eurozone.

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR -7.01%) shares fell as Starbucks (SBUX +1.59%) rolled out its Verismo-branded line of single-serve coffees, along with a selection of electric brewers. Of course this product launch is directly aimed at GMCR's Keurig Machines. Is it too late for Starbucks?
