Showtime For Apple

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Tuesday, the 22nd of October.

Today at 10am PT/1pm ET, it's showtime for Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. In previous years, there has been an air of mystery about what surprises Apple has for the market. This year however, most of the news has been spilled and the world will be looking for new iPads with retina displays, improvements in the Mac line and possibly more information on Maverick, Apple's new operating system for the desktop and laptop world.

As always, Apple teases us with a slogan, and this year is no different as the slogan that's draped around the Yerba Buena Center reads, "We Still Have a Lot to Cover." What exactly that means remains to be seen. That air of the next big thing is one of the reasons Apple events are so intriguing to the world.

In addition to analyzing Apple, I will also be looking at the major indices, crude oil, gold, and the US dollar.

I always appreciate your comments and feedback, so please feel free to leave them on this blog, along with any questions you might have for us.

Have a great trading day,

Today's Video Update: What Goes Up, Must Come Down...Right?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 17th of June.

Are High Gas Prices Going To Squash The Economic Recovery?
Last week, all of our Trade Triangles jumped into a positive position, indicating that crude oil prices are headed higher once again. Some of that can be attribute to the events in the Middle East, mainly in Syria. The move higher also has to do with the technical makeup of the market. This market has been moving sideways for a while and seems poised to want to break over the $100 barrel level in the not-too-distant future. This increase in gasoline prices would come at a terrible time for most Americans, as summer driving tends to drive up demand for gas. I will be covering crude oil in today's video.

What Goes Up, Must Come Down... Right?
The battle continues between the Bulls and the Bears as the markets continue to vacillate both on the upside and downside. Certainly, my call to be on the sidelines for intermediate-term traders has proven to be a wise one. I continue to think that the longer-term trend for the equity markets remains in a positive mode, but it's more of a sideways pattern that we are seeing in the major indices right now.

The 52-Week Rule
I learned this rule many years ago from a trader named Bill, when I was trading in the pits of the Chicago Mercantile where I was a member. Over the years, it has proven to have a high degree of success. Just remember, there are no guarantees made or implied that this approach works with every trade. I suggest you watch it, paper trade it, and draw your own conclusions. Here are the three rules you need to trade "The 52-Week New Highs on Friday Rule": Continue reading "Today's Video Update: What's Ahead For June?"

Today's Video Update: The Beat Goes On

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Wednesday, the 15th of May.

Google Music?
Word on the street is that Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) is set to announce today a new streaming music service, one that will compete against Pandora and Spotify. Once again, it seems as though Google wants to be everything to everybody, and whether Google can compete in the music business and be successful remains to be seen. Should you buy or sell Google? If you haven't watched my Google trading video on how to trade Google successfully, you can watch it here.

The Beat Goes On
Stock prices hit a high yesterday as more and more disenfranchised short sellers are covering their shorts and exiting this market. So far, this market has not yielded to any downside pressure or correction to the surprise of many professional traders. What I do know, is that trends tend to persist longer than expected, and that they don't ring a bell at the top of any market. In a recent blog poll, we asked readers what they thought of the market: Continue reading "Today's Video Update: The Beat Goes On"

New Video: Is the Cult of Apple Over?

Apple just sold 2 million iPhone 5s in 3 days in China, yet its stock falls below $500 in pre-market trading. What is going on in the smart phone world?

This past weekend, my daughter and son-in-law came over for an early Christmas celebration. My son-in-law, who is a very smart guy and a computer engineer, showed me his new phone which to my surprise was not an iPhone5, but a Samsung Galaxy III. Much to my chagrin I picked it up and started playing with it and I have to admit some of technology, especially the Google voice technology, appeared superior to Siri, which is what Apple uses in its iPhone5 and IOS6 operating system.
