What's Driving These Markets?

Hi guys, just back from vacation in Canada, had a great time. If you ever have the opportunity to get up to see the Canadian Rockies or ride on the Rocky Mountaineer I highly recommend it. Lake Louise one of the most famous spots in the Rockies because of its natural beauty still was frozen on June 1st. We also ran into many closed roads because of the snow.

It is good to be back and while I was away and see some of the markets have reversed, and some stay strong. Looking at the markets, I see that the strong upward trends in equities are continuing, and that's something we've been following for quite some time.

It also looks like the Gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) market is now mixed, and the same goes for the Dollar Euro market. Strong trends persist in the crude oil market and will you be following these and other trends in today's video.

So let's get started and see what's going on in the markets right now. I will analyze the markets major and minor trends and share with you what I think is going to happen next week.

Every success with MarketClub,

Why Major Trends Are Important

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Thursday, the 3rd of April.

Indices

Major Trend : BULLISH
Intermediate Trend : BULLISH

One lesson I learned a long time ago in my trading career was to never fight the trend. Trends tend to persist longer and go further than most expect. Yesterday, the Dow 30 gave a signal that it was once again resuming its upward trend, joining the S&P 500 in a positive trend. The NASDAQ is in a neutral and sideways mode. Watch today’s video to see my upside target levels.

Are The Markets Just Teasing Us?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Wednesday, the 26th of March.

It would appear as though most of the major indices have just been spinning their wheels and going nowhere fast in the past 4 to 5 weeks as they have all been in a broad trading range. This type of market action can lull investors to complacency, but for me it has always been a wake-up call to pay close attention to the market as something big is going to happen.

As I see it, the market is doing one of two things, it's either building a base to move higher or it's a distribution top – only time will tell which is the correct answer.

One of our members suggested that the Dow 30 could be making an inverse head and shoulders formation. Certainly this is possible, but I need to see a clear breakout to the upside to confirm this formation.

The other concern I have is the damage done to the NASDAQ earlier this week as it fell to a 6-week low. How this particular index closes on Friday is going to be very important in my mind. Again, I will be watching this market very closely for signs of either a continuation of the bullish trend or a top. [Read more...]

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...]

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...]

It's 2014, Now What?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your market Outlook for 2014.

Well, here it is 2014, and I would like to wish all of our members, friends and traders around the world a very happy and prosperous new year.

Let's start with the indices which had a spectacular year in 2013, in fact, it was their best year since the mid-90s. Are we likely to see those same returns in 2014? I seriously doubt the indices are going to see double digit growth like they experienced last year. What I do expect to see are much more volatile markets as the Fed begins to extricate itself from its grand experiment. It certainly is not clear to anyone that we are going to get out of this "grand experiment" without any pain. You look at a stock like Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), which was certainly the star performer last year managing a gain of 296% for the year, can that continue?

According to a recent poll our blog at least a 50% of the voters expected the trend to continue in 2013. I'm not so convinced, but I would like to see what the Trade Triangles say and go with that strategy in 2014. [Read more...]
