The Big Market Vortex

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Friday, the 10th of January.

It seems to me as we are finally back to double digit temperatures here in the Mid-Atlantic there is a different feel in the market so far this year. As we ended 2013, stocks were buoyant and moving to new highs and as we move into the second week of trading in the new year, stocks seem to have lost some of their pizzazz.

Major Indices

While the major indices are still in a positive upward trend longer-term, it is increasingly apparent that they may just be running out of gas and upside momentum in the short-term. I'll be examining the three major indices today and share with you my take on what's happening in each index. [Read more...]

Will Amazon (AMZN) Make It To $400?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Friday, the 1st of November.

Last month was a great month for many investors, myself included, as all of my stocks moved in a favorable direction. I see little reason to change my analysis of the markets as I expect them to continue to move higher in November. This is partly due to the Fed continuing with its $85 billion a month bond buying binge. With Apple's iPad going on sale worldwide today, I see great sales coming for the retail sector as the public buys into the holiday season.

MarketClub's mid-day update for Friday, the 1st of November

One major concern on the horizon is the roll-out of the “Affordable Care Act” (Obamacare), which is going to have an effect on one sixth of the economy here in the United States. So far, the roll-out has been a big disappointment, as many people are seeing potential increases in their insurance rates with this new plan. If rates increase substantially, then that money will be coming out of the economy, which will not necessarily be a good thing. [Read more...]

5 Stocks to Watch

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Wednesday, the 30th of October.

Stock To Watch - Deckers Outdoor (NASDAQ:DECK)

Here is a stock that is coming from a massive base and appears to want to move higher. All of the Trade Triangles are positive on Deckers Outdoor Corp (NASDAQ:DECK). On Monday, Deckers moved to its best levels in 18 months and appears to want to challenge some of its Fibonacci retracement levels. The first major level is $73.23, which represents a 50% retracement. The next major level is $83.92, which represents a 61.8% retracement. I expect this stock to stay strong for the balance of the year. As always with any trade, use money management stops to protect capital. [Read more...]

Why UPS Could Be A Big Winner This Quarter

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Tuesday, the 29th of October.

Apple Update

It was both good news and bad news yesterday for Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). Apple beat earnings, but it was not enough for some analysts who fretted over the fact that the Apple’s margins had shrunk from previous quarters. I say, you can’t please everyone all the time and maybe analysts were putting too fine a point on this. The trend in Apple is higher technically and I'm still looking for a move to the $580, or possibly the $600 level.

Last month Apple closed out at $476.53, and is up over 10% for the month of October. I still believe Apple is headed higher and that belief is backed up with the Trade Triangle technology. All systems are go for this stock. [Read more...]

All eyes on Apple as Twitter takes to the road

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 28th of October.

After the bell today, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) reports its earnings and this could be a real bellwether report for the market. With all of our technical indicators pointing in a positive direction, I believe that earnings will be on par or better than expected. I continue to rely on the Trade Triangle technology to stay in this market. Upside objective for Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) continues to remain at the $580-$600 level. [Read more...]

Here is a little known stock that Carl Icahn likes

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Friday, the 25th of October.

There’s no doubt about it, Carl Icahn has been on a winning streak lately with Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) making big bucks even by billionaire status. One of Carl’s other stocks is the energy company, Talisman Energy Inc. (NYSE:TLM).

Technically I also like this stock, as all of the Trade Triangles are in a positive mode. Last month Talisman Energy closed at $11.51 and is currently trading around the $12.30 area, up a solid 6.8%. [Read more...]

Showtime For Apple

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com 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,

Disaster Averted, Fast Forward To January 15th

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

Late last night the United States averted what would've been a disaster for the country. But did we really avert disaster, or did they just "kick the can down the road"? I had the good fortune to appear on CNBC Asia last night when this historic vote was cast. If you missed my appearance, you can see what I said right here.

While Washington politicians are patting themselves on the back and thinking about what a good job they did, most folks in the real world have a different view and are incredibly angry at what Washington is doing. It really doesn't matter if you are on the left or the right of the political spectrum, the divisiveness in the country is not healthy for the economy and the stock market in the long run.

Are we headed for a financial Armageddon? I don't think so

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 14th of October.

It's day 14 of the government shutdown and it's certainly getting down to crunch time where someone is going to have to blink. I think both parties know how angry the populace is with their childish behavior. In my opinion, the National Park Service should be fired for what they did with the open air monuments.

Last week's market didn't close badly with the expectation that we would have a resolution in place this past weekend. That was not to be case and the major indices are lower this morning.

UPDATE: Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) flashes a major buy signal. [Read more...]

WTF - It's not what you think

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Friday, the 11th of October.

I first learned about the real meaning of WTF while I was a member of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, back when I was trading in the pits, standing shoulder to shoulder with some of the smartest traders in the world.

It was back when the movie Star Wars was all the rage and George Lucas was at the height of his very successful, creative career. The iconic line from the movie that struck a cord with everyone was, "May the force be with you."

How that quote made it into the trading pits of Chicago will always be a mystery to me. The members of the exchange took WTF, a slang term, and translated that to stand for "What's The Force?", loosely interpreted to mean, is the force up or down for the market? This term was especially common on Fridays when traders had to decide whether they were going to hold or fold their positions over the weekend.

So I say to you this Friday, WTF? [Read more...]
