Yesterday, we saw the first glimmer of hope from Greece and that was enough to push the markets up sharply and optimism once again ruled the markets.
Today's announcement of a nuclear deal with Iran is a different kettle of fish. I do not view the nuclear deal with Iran in quite the same positive light as the deal with Greece. The ramifications are very different and of course, potentially life-threatening for a very sensitive part of the world.
It is going to take the markets some time to digest the ramifications of this deal as it is still way too early and premature to assume either the best or worst scenario for this deal. Putting all that aside, today I'm going to look at the technical aspects of the major indices, crude oil, gold and the euro and time permitting, a couple of stocks that are looking good technically.
Tell us, what do you think of this nuclear deal with Iran? Please feel free to leave your comments below this post. I would be most interested in hearing how you think this will affect the markets, crude oil and of course, the world.
Q3 promises to be a very interesting quarter in many aspects. Q3 happens to be one of the most successful quarters for trading soybeans. You can see all of our soybean entry and exit signals in our World Cup Portfolio, right here.

It seems all we can talk about in the markets are the ongoing Greek charade or the next talking point China. You will hear no end of experts telling you what they think of Greece and China and what will happen if this or that takes place. The reality is, no one knows for sure what's going to happen.
My advice, simplify, simplify, simplify. Keep it simple as the market doesn't pay you more for overthinking. In fact the market doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks, it's going to go its own way no matter what.
And that's the beauty of the Trade Triangle technology it doesn't over think the markets. In fact it doesn't think at all it's an algorithm.
To the best of my knowledge, no one predicted the recent weakness in crude oil. As everyone knows usage tends to be high in the summer months when people travel for vacations.
Remember I said no one knows, however, the Trade Triangle technology is an unbiased algorithm that literally goes with the flow and does not overthink any situation. You only have to look at a chart of crude oil to see just how this simple unbiased approach has performed. The Trade Triangles have made close to a 150% return in the last eight days based on latest Trade Triangle signal. That represents a gain of about $6,000 per contract in just over a week, and that's not listening to anyone except what the market is telling the algorithm!
So when it comes to investing and trading look no further than MarketClub's Trade Triangle technology as it will over time far outperform most of the so-called experts out there.
Today, I will be looking at two stocks that gave important buy signals yesterday.
It seems like this never-ending, ongoing Greek tragedy is like an Energizer battery as it just keeps going and going and going.
In order for something to qualify as a "black swan event", it has to come out of the blue and be a total surprise to the market. Certainly, Greece cannot claim to have just happened or come out of the blue. It seems like this train wreck of a country has been going on forever without a resolution. The fact that the markets are only down a bit as of this writing and have the potential to close unchanged indicates that most of the US equity markets have already discounted the "Greek Effect".
