Is Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) Streaming To Go Higher?

Today, I'll be taking a in-depth look at the stock of Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX). The stock enjoyed a very nice move from May through July, but has since stalled out. After making a high in July, the stock has pulled back from the $472 level to where it is currently trading around the $427 level.

Netflix was founded by Reed Hastings, who had the brilliant idea of sending DVDs through the mail directly to your home. This was a disruptive idea at the time, which put many mom-and-pop video rental stores out of business. Now Netflix is expanding and streaming videos directly to your computer, bypassing the post office, which is even a better idea, in my opinion.

Netflix has to be the undisputed leader in entertainment/streaming video field, but now has lots of competition in the form of Hulu, Amazon, Apple and many others. My thoughts are that Netflix will continue to be the major player and continue to own the major portion of the video streaming business. [Read more...]

Good Way To End The Trading Week

We're coming to the end of a rather dismal trading week as far as many traders are concerned, so let’s take a look at a positive way to end the week.

As this is Friday, I want to look for markets that are making new 52-week highs, particularly when they're going against the general grain of the market.

Within MarketClub, under the SmartScan tab, I'm going to use the link for 52-week highs. I'm also going to be filtering the results by "Equities," "last price less than $50" and "volume greater than 2 million shares traded a day." I'm also only going to search on US exchanges.

With the filtering completed, I came up with a list of about 16 stocks that meet my criteria. From your own scan of the stocks that meet your criteria, you could choose what you would like to trade, or you could trade all of them. Your next step is to scan 15 minutes before the close looking for stocks that are trading close to their highs for the day. You only want to trade those stocks that are closing strong for the day and the week.

If a stock is making new highs on Friday, it potentially means that something is going on behind the scenes that the general public is not aware of. It could be merger talks, a new product announcement or simply news that comes up that's viewed as positive for that particular stock or sector. Once you pick out the stock and buy it, you want to take profits on the opening on Tuesday. You're looking for the market to continue its strong upward momentum on Monday and early on Tuesday when the stock opens. [Read more...]

How To Avoid Dead Fish In Q3

One of the most important tools that a trader possesses is his or her mind. Attitude can either make or break you as a trader.

To become a successful trader, it begins with believing in yourself and having a winning attitude. Everyone wants to be a winner, at least they think so. Unfortunately, most are not willing to perform the tasks necessary to become a consistent winner.

Winners generally achieve success by being focused on a goal. Being focused allows winners to remain committed to the tasks at hand. Most winners perform a lot of hard work, including a willingness to deal with sometimes mundane duties. Most of all, winners perform with an "I am responsible for both my failures and successes" attitude.

So, where does the would-be trader start to become a success? [Read more...]

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,

Proceed With Caution

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and co-creator of MarketClub, with your video update for Friday, the 25th of April.

There's no question about it, these markets are in turmoil not knowing what to do. On one hand, the NASDAQ is showing a negative trend based on Trade Triangle technology, and the DOW and the S&P 500 are indicating a sideways trend at best.

Today I'm going to be looking at key areas to watch for in these markets and what to do if and when these levels are broken.

I still believe that the deal breaker in this whole equation is going to be what's happening in the Ukraine. With Putin flexing his muscles on the global stage and no one willing to stand up to him, he knows that he is going to win the game he is playing. Just yesterday, he indicated that sanctions mean nothing to him. That is the only weapon the west has or is willing to use against Russian domination of Europe. Like it or not, Putin’s aggression is going to cast a pall over all of Europe and a slowdown in business and the nascent recovery that was beginning to take place there. [Read more...]

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...]

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...]
