How To Improve Your Trading In February

Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere! Welcome to the new trading month of February.

Today, I am going to do something a little bit different, I hope you enjoy the experience and find it educational and informative. To start with, I am going to analyze a static chart of the stock of Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMAT).

In addition to posting a single static chart on the blog, I am also going to be doing a video of that same chart. The video is short, to the point, and explains how I analyze stocks using the tools in MarketClub.

Today's in-depth analysis of Applied Materials shows a confluence of technical indicators that do not add up to a positive outlook for this stock. Remember, any analysis I do at MarketClub should not be considered a recommendation or an endorsement to buy or sell a particular security.

There is an old adage in trading that goes like this, "they slide faster than they glide". Translated, that means stocks go down faster than they go up.

Here are the 8 technical aspects that could spell trouble for Applied Materials. [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...]

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...]

Apple's Killer New Strategy And Why Everyone Missed It

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Thursday, the 24th of October.

Earlier this week, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) unveiled its new lineup of iPads and Macs that are going to push it into the fourth quarter. One key in the presentation that most observers might have missed while focusing on the products, was the fact that Apple intends to include and provide free software like Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand. These software programs are first class and represent some of the company's crown jewels. It's Apple's new strategy to bring more and more new users into Apple's ecosystem. Once in, it is hard to get out and Apple has you for life.

This strategy reminds me of King Gillette, of Gillette shaving and razors. King Gillette's strategy was simple, give away the razor and I will sell you the high-profit razor blades. In Apple's case, the software is the razor, the iPad, iPhone, the Mac and all of the other Apple hardware pieces are the razor blades. Not a bad strategy for Apple in the tablet wars. [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,

AAPL, NFLX, FB, YELP, all in today's update

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 21st of October.

In today's report, I will be covering many of the major markets that have been pushing the indices to new highs.

I'll start with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), who is rolling out new products tomorrow at 10am PT/1pm ET at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center. The slogan for the Apple roll out is, "we still have a lot to cover," so it should be a market mover.

I will also be looking at Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), which has turned out to be a big winner for us this year. Netflix is reporting earnings today after the bell. [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...]

Is The Market Correction Over?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Thursday, the 10th of October.

Yes, I believe that the current correction has come to an end with yesterday's market action. Markets are heavily oversold at this point and I expect to see a relief rally starting today.

Several of our MarketClub members stated that they expect to see some sort of agreement out of Washington in the next few days. I happen to agree with their thoughts and if that happens, it could instantly repair the downside pressure on the markets.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is looking more and more interesting, particularly if it closes today over the $491.10 level. Should this happen, it will have created a mini base in which to propel Apple to my "line-in-the-sand" level at $497. Apple could go into overdrive if this level is broken on the upside any time this week. [Read more...]

Is It Time To Buy Gold?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for the last day of the month and quarter, Wednesday the 2nd of September.

The NASDAQ Is On Fire!
There's no doubt about it, the NASDAQ is and has been the strongest index out of the three indices we track. The NASDAQ index is being driven by the likes of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) and many other internet and tech stocks.

Is this trend likely to continue? I believe it will continue and I am looking for higher levels in all of these markets, providing that our Trade Triangle technology is in agreement.

Is Gold A Buy Right Here?
Our Trade Triangles have enjoyed a great deal of success trading in gold over the last several years.

It's An All Syrian Headache Of A Weekend

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Friday, the 6th of September.

Early this morning, I had a reporter call me in regards to the non-farm payrolls and my thoughts on what I expected. I must admit, non-farm payrolls was the furthest thing from my mind as I believe the market and the world is becoming consumed with Syria.

It seems we have half of the world against us, including Russia and China, which is not a good thing. Why we did not wait for the UN to provide some political cover is beyond me. I think President Obama has unfortunately dug a big hole for himself and is not sure how to get out of it. [Read more...]
