2 Troubling Trends For Investors

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Thursday, the 20th of March.

If you have read my posts for any length of time, you will see that I frequently refer to the saying, "the trend is your friend." However in this case, there appear to be two developing trends that will offer some amazing opportunities, but at the same time create some very dangerous times for the planet.

I'm sure like many investors, you are tracking what is going on in the Ukraine and Crimea. I do not view this as a positive, in fact, I think this is a once-in-every-two-generations kind of event and a very negative trend not just for the US and Europe, but for the global community in general.

Bulls or Bears - Who Will Win?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Tuesday, the 11th of March.

The Dow Is Balanced

Looking at the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEX:DJI), you have half of the stocks in a bull trend and the other half in a bear trend, giving a very mixed picture and somewhat neutral look to the Dow 30. The question is, which side is going to win out, the bulls or the bears? As with any market, I will be watching the Trade Triangles for an indication of this index's next move.

Gold Adjusting To New Levels

After rallying over $150 from the lows that were seen in late December, the gold market has gone into a sideways pattern as it begins to readjust to its new trading levels of $1,320 to $1,360. At the moment, it would look like short-term traders should be out of this market and that long-term traders could hold on to long gold positions. I'm still see the Gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) moving higher longer-term. [Read more...]

Ukraine or No Ukraine - Are Stocks At A Tipping Point?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Wednesday, the 5th of March.

There's no question about it, Ukraine and Putin have been causing havoc in the world’s markets. While it's easy to get emotional and jump on one side of the market or the other because of the news, that really is no way to trade. The Trade Triangles are free of human emotion and tend to keep you in the big trends and alert you to new trends as they develop.

From an intellectual level, I don't think that Russia is finished with the Crimea or Ukraine. There's going to be a lot of diplomatic talk, but the bottom line is going to be what Putin wants, he is going to get, no matter what the cost. The Chinese have a saying, "May you live in interesting times" and certainly these are more than interesting times.

So what's ahead? It seems that we are almost at a tipping point in some markets and in other markets it would appear as though we are heading into a multi-year bull market. Gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) I believe has made a major reversal and has embarked on a multi-year bull market. [Read more...]

A Big Win For Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (NASDAQ:GMCR)

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Thursday, the 6th of February.

Yesterday, the Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) announced it was buying a 10% stake in Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (NASDAQ:GMCR). Under the terms of the deal, Coke will purchase 16.7 million shares in Green Mountain for about $1.5 billion.

This appears to be a match made in heaven as Green Mountain will now become the official maker of the soda giant's single-serve cold beverages, built on its Keurig pod-based system. [Read more...]

The Big One Reports Today - Amazon.com Inc. (NASADQ:AMZN)

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Thursday, the 30th of January.

Reporting After The Close Today

Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) reports earnings after the close today and analysts are looking for a beat on sales. Amazon.com, Inc. operates as an online retailer in North America and internationally. Technically, Amazon is in a trading range bound by $408 on the upside and $380 on the downside. Before getting positive on Amazon again, the stock would have to make new all-time highs over $408 a share. All will be revealed after the market closes today.

What Is Going On With Apple?

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Reports Earnings After The Bell

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Monday, the 27th of January.

I am going to be looking at the stock of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), who reports earnings after the bell today. The psychological stakes could not be any higher for Apple, which in many ways, still mourns the loss of Steve Jobs' visionary qualities. The big question on investors' minds these days, is Apple still a momentum stock or has it become a dividend paying stock?

This is a big challenge for Apple because one of its core markets is young people and one thing Apple cannot afford to do is lose its cool factor with this audience. It may have already lost its cool factor with the younger generation, as Android is certainly showing up more and more in the hands and minds of teenagers. [Read more...]

Are We On The Brink Of A Gold Rush?

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.

The market action yesterday was really a welcome to the real world, as more and more traders returned from their vacations. Yesterday saw many weekly Trade Triangles turn red, indicating that certain markets may be slowing down and moving into a transition period.

Both the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ displayed weekly red Trade Triangles, indicating for intermediate term traders that a sidelines position in both of these indices was warranted. This is not to say that the move to the upside is over, it is just an indication that for now the upward momentum has been blunted and the safest place to be is on the sidelines.

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...]

Apple Finally Inks The China Mobile Deal

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Monday, the 23rd of December.

Apple Lands A Big One

Yesterday, China Mobile announced that it had finalized a deal with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). This deal has been 6 years in the making and earlier in the month it was rumored not to be doable which made the stock of Apple fall. So just how big is the market for Apple with China Mobile?

To put the Apple China Mobile deal in perspective, the number of subscribers that China Mobile has is twice the population of the US. I think that gives us an idea of just how big the potential market is for the Apple iPhone in China.

About a month ago, I did it in-depth analysis of Apple showing where we thought the stock could go in the next month or two. You can see that analysis right here. It is well worth a visit if you missed it the first time. [Read more...]

Are Stocks On Your Christmas Wishlist?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Friday, the 20th of December.

Amazon

Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) moved over the $400 a share level for the first time in its history. I have been positive on Amazon since June 7th of this year, when the monthly Trade Triangle kicked in at $277.40. It is clear now, to almost everyone, that Amazon is the 900lbs gorilla in the retail space. It's going to be almost impossible to dislodge them from this position, in my opinion. Certainly the new generation of shoppers are going to bypass the Walmarts (NYSE:WMT) and the Targets (NYSE:TGT) of the world, especially when you think of the security breach that took place at Target just recently. I expect Amazon to trend higher.
