Hello MarketClub members everywhere. No doubt by now you have heard of all the problems Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC) is having in creating fictitious, and I would say illegal accounts. What you probably didn't know is the fact that the Trade Triangles picked up problems with Wells Fargo on August 21, 2015, when the stock was selling at $54.45. That was over 13 months ago, and the news is just now hitting the market.
Hello MarketClub members everywhere. It would seem as though the markets are stuck in a twilight zone not knowing whether to go up or go down. This has been the case for a few months now and when we go through periods like this in the market, one has to say to oneself, "be patient and wait for the opportunities to come up," they always do.
Today's keyword is patience.
The way to look at the markets when they move into a choppy period is to look at the big trends. The odds favor a resumption of a market's major trend. It doesn't always work out that way, but if you're betting with the odds, it is the way to go.
Hello MarketClub members everywhere. Yesterday's mandatory recall of all of the Samsung's 7 Note devices is a huge blow for Samsung. Up until yesterday, Samsung was trying to recall and replace batteries that were overheating and causing fires and were a danger to the public and transportation systems everywhere. With this news, the stock of Samsung collapsed literally, and Apple's stock price soared.
What is interesting is that Apple begins delivery of its new iPhone 7 today. I can't help wondering if there wasn't some political maneuvering behind the scenes in this recall move. Yesterday, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a full recall of the Galaxy Note 7 products in conjunction with Samsung. The formal recall covers about 1 million devices.

Samsung's stock price started slipping on September 9 after what has been a pretty good year for this stock.

Hello MarketClub members everywhere. Stocks are trading sharply lower today after comments from a Federal Reserve banker suggests that a September rate hike might not be entirely off the table after all.
In a speech today Federal Reserve Bank of Boston President Eric Rosengren said that "a reasonable case can be made" for a rate hike, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Those words shook Wall Street, as traders had pretty much written off an interest rate increase at the Fed's Sept. 20-21 meeting. This feeling was based on the weaker-than-expected August jobs report released last week. Although Rosengren did not specifically mention September, his words, to some degree, leaves the door open to a rate hike, which Wall Street is not positioned for according to analysts.
Hello MarketClub members everywhere. Looking at the markets, it seems to me that the best is yet to come. What I mean by that is I think that the equity markets can still go higher, a lot higher based on the Trade Triangles and the technical formations on the charts.
