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...]

Today he’s going to talk about how setting your limits can help you avoid sabotaging yourself.

I think trading with a specific plan is one of the most sensible things a trader can do. It helps you learn and identify key areas to watch for in a market. More importantly, it helps you avoid sabotaging yourself because it helps keep your emotions in check. One of the key components of a trading plan is knowing your exits. One way to close an open trading position is with a limit order. [Read more...]

Daily Video Update: As we start Q3 is a global slowdown in the cards?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 2nd of July.

A surprise announcement out of the European summit pushed the market higher on Friday. It was also the end of the week, the end of the month, and the end of the quarter. For Q2 most of the markets were down, including the equity markets. We think that's an important element to look at. We still believe the trend is down and intact and that Friday was more of a short covering rally.

Daily Video Update: Is it my imagination or did the Greeks just kick the can down the road again?

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 18th of June.

While the eyes of the world were glued to the Greek elections, another election took place halfway across the world in Egypt. The outcome of that election could have far greater consequences to Western society than a little country in southern Europe.

I am, of course, talking about the potential for war between the Muslims and the Jews over Israel. This would not be a good thing for anyone. At no time in my career have I seen so many conflicting elements around the world, all of which portend to big changes in the markets. [Read more...]

Me Centered or Stock Centered?

By: Chris Irvin, Veteran Instructor & Trader at The Wizard

My last blog (May 9, 2012) spent some time dealing with the logical and emotional sides of the brain and how the flow of information from side to side differs between men and women.  Among other things I suggested that in order for a male trader to be successful they have to have an exit strategy before entering a position because our egos can often get in the way of solid decision making while in the middle of the trade.  I am a firm believer that traders need to define exits prior to entering a position because this is the only time when ego is not an issue in the process.  This idea brought up a valid comment from one reader.  “Wouldn’t it be easier to just put a trailing stop on your position rather than defining a solid stop loss level?”  It probably would be easier, but is it the best?  In this blog I would like to explain why I believe repositioning stop losses manually is a better idea than using trailing stops, if you have the option of course.  If you are a trader that does not have the ability to adjust stop losses manually due to schedule, or circumstance, the trailing stop is a great tool.  If you do have the ability to babysit your trades then I believe it is better to reposition the stops on your own.

Before debating whether manually repositioning stop losses is better than setting an automated trailing stop, I need to point out that even a manual stop loss is really automating your trading process.    The question is “can you be more successful if you use a little of your own elbow grease rather than setting an automated trailing stop?” [Read more...]

Does Everyone Know Their ABCs?

We asked All About Trends to share another one of their member articles with our Trader's Blog readers after the positive response we received from last weeks article.  Here's the article as outlined by All About Trends in their newsletter dated 4/22/12

What To Watch Out For

By: All About Trends

In the stock market there are three things you need to know.

  • Uptrends and how to trade them
  • Downtrends and how to trade them
  • Change In Trends and how to identify them be it down to up or up to down.

Given we are sitting at some year highs all going into May with it's "Sell In May And Go Away" mantra (for those who subscribe to that self fulfilling prophecy) not to mention the potential wave count (5 waves up) and a fair amount of resistance now is a good time to talk a bit about Change In Trend patterns to be aware of.
