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?

Which is more exciting: the market of late or a game of Pong? You choose.

Hello traders everywhere, Adam Hewison here co-founder of MarketClub with your 1 p.m. market update for Friday the 17th of June.

I guess the most common expression I'm hearing is "kick the can down the road.". It would seem as though politicians the world over are pretty much the same. None of them wants to face the truth that there is no more money. So what do they do they, "kick the can down the road."

And once again the taxpayers have to come up with the money. Lending more money to Greece is the height of insanity in my opinion simply because how can they possibly pay back the first tranches of money that was already lent to them? But that's what's happened today; Merkle and Sarkozy  made concessions and basically declared that "happy days are here again," but are they really? I was talking to a good friend of mine this morning who is one of the smartest people I know and I asked him point-blank, what do you think of the global and US economy? Here is what he said to me, "It is a time to be cautious and guarded." Those were his exact words. I'll let you think about that.

So okay enough of what my smart friends think, let's look and see what the market thinks about everything.

Here's what's happening in the major markets right now ... Continue reading "Which is more exciting: the market of late or a game of Pong? You choose."

More of the same, but are we starting to tip down?

Hello traders everywhere, Adam Hewison here co-founder of MarketClub with your 1 p.m. market update for Wednesday the 15th of June.

Okay, now here's what's happening right now in the major markets (click to watch the video)...

SP 500: -70. The market action today can only be described as negative. A score is now -70 and our downside target for this market is 1250. Major downside support is at 1250.

Silver: -70. I would watch this market very carefully today as I feel that it is probably at the lower end of its range. We would use the Donchian Channels along with the fact that this market is oversold and expect to see a bounce from current levels. Major Support at 34.00.

Gold: +70. Gold is currently oversold and we expect to see this market balance sometime in the near future. We would not be surprised to see further sideways action but we want to be long this market as the Donchian channel comes in at 1503. Major support at 1,500.

In my new, short five minute video, I analyze the major trends in what I call the big five. We'll be looking at the DOW (INDEX_DJI), the Dollar index (NYBOT_DX), crude oil (NYMEX_CL.J09.E), gold (FOREX_XAUUSDO), and the CRB index (NYBOT_CR).

I will show you step-by-step how to analyze each of these markets quickly to get the trend.

Once you discover this simple approach, you'll be amazed at just how accurate it is over time.

This is one of my most important videos and I want you to be able to see it without having to register or pay a fee to watch it. I honestly believe that my new video can make a world of difference to how you approach the markets in the future.

Every success and enjoy the video.

The #1 Predictor of Inflation or Deflation.

There is an indicator which has been around since 1957. It has accurately forecasted every inflationary and deflationary cycle since.

This is my number one indicator for large cyclic trends. You may want to watch this index carefully should you want to invest in certain stocks and commodity related markets.

Over the last half-century, this index has seen some remarkable moves both on the upside and more recently on the downside. I believe that this is the indicator that everyone should watch. If you trade stocks or futures and are interested in world trade trends, this is the indicator to track.

The tenth revision of this index renamed it the Reuters-Jefferies CRB Index (NYBOT_CR) You can easily track this indicator everyday using MarketClub.

You can learn more about this index from our Trader's Blog
Here is a list of the 19 markets that are included in the RJ/CRB index as implemented in the 2005 revision:

Metals: aluminum, copper, gold, nickel, silver
Energies: crude oil, heating oil, natural gas, unleaded gas
Grains: corn, soybeans, wheat
Food & Fiber: cocoa, coffee, cotton, orange juice, sugar
Livestock: lean hogs, live cattle

Take a few minutes to watch this short video and see how you can benefit from this indicator. There is no fee and there is no registration required.

Enjoy the video in every success in the markets,
