How Smart Scan Can Help You Make Money

One of the real jewels in MarketClub is the Smart Scan technology. This powerful, easy-to-use technology allows you to scan thousands of markets and find out what's trending and which way that trend is headed.

For example, you could look for markets that have a strong trending Score or you might look for markets that are in a trading range to perhaps write options against.

If you have been a member of MarketClub for a while, you have seen me write about "The 52-Week New Highs on Friday" rules. If you haven't seen this trading concept yet, then check out today's video as you will learn something that you may not know.

Today I'm going to be using Smart Scan technology to look for stocks that are making new 52-week highs. I'm then going to filter that list down to fit my own price and volume needs.

Below are the rules of this trade strategy. I learned this trick many years ago from a trader named Bill, when I was member of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange trading on the floor. It's a good one and I want to share this strategy with you today.

Here are the three rules you need to trade "52-Week New Highs on Friday": Continue reading "How Smart Scan Can Help You Make Money"

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. Continue reading "Good Way To End The Trading Week"

Apple Unleashes The New iPhones Today

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Friday, the 20th of September.

Today, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) began to officially sell its new iPhones, the 5S and 5C, around the world. Long lines were reported in Europe, Asia and here in the States as Apple loyalists lined up to buy the latest and greatest from Apple.

Is Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) going to sell as many of the new iPhones as it has in the past? I think so, many iPhone users myself included, did not upgrade to the iPhone 5 last time. I will be upgrading this time and trading in my 4S for a brand new, fingerprint ready 5S. I think many other Apple users will be doing the same thing in this new product update cycle.

On Wednesday, like many other iPhone users, I downloaded the new IOS7 operating system for the iPhone and iPad. I have to say the new interface is clean, pretty slick, beautifully designed and works like a charm. The good news for everyone is that Apple made this upgrade free of charge.
