If Slovakia votes no, stocks tank tomorrow

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 10th of October.

This morning I was reading that there are approximately 3.2 million job openings here in the United States. With more than 14 million people out of work in this country, how can we possibly have 3.2 million job openings still not filled?

These are job openings that the private sector needs to fill. I know from our own experience here at our company, finding competent people it extremely difficult. Part of the problem, in my opinion, is that many job applicants have no skills.

The CEO of Cummings, Tim Selso said he can't find skilled workers for his manufacturing plants. This is a common complaint that many CEOs share.

According to economists, the average worker contributes about $45,000 a year to GDP. If we could just fill 1/3 of those jobs, it would have a huge impact on the economy.

Like many traders today, we were surprised at the velocity of the rally which is based on a potential agreement coming into place in Europe. At the moment no one knows what the deal is, and nobody in a position of authority is indicating what the deal is. The vote from Slovakia has the potential to torpedo any recovery and is a big hurdle approaching tomorrow. If that tiny country votes "no" to this proposed agreement, it could send stocks, and in particular bank stocks, to the cellar!

That leaves us with just one option... What are the Trade Triangles saying?

It's good to be back!

Hello traders everywhere, Adam Hewison here co-founder of MarketClub with your 1 p.m. market update for Friday the 1st of July.

I just got back from a business trip to Utah I will tell you all about that trip in a later broadcast. But right now all I can say is what a difference a week makes.

This week on Wednesday to be precise the S&P 500 gave you a strong buy signal with our weekly green trade triangle. Since that time it has done nothing but go higher.

Before I left I underscored how several markets were heavily oversold and at the lower levels of the Donchian trade channels. What this meant was that there was a strong probability that we would see a bounce in both the equity crude oil, and CRB index. That rally took place in the past few days. So what is going to happen now?

Let's go to the markets right now and see what is happening today. Continue reading "It's good to be back!"
