I was on CNBC's Squawk Box today and host Brian Sullivan asked where I thought the market was going. The truth is, we are in a pocket of high volatility with little net price change from 1 year ago. Why? We are caught in a Fibonacci Timing Zone that ended the massive bull market.
Traders, there are few things I needed to get off my chest about trading, trading analysts, trading marketers, and this industry in general. Once the 10-minute rant is over, I jump into the markets to show you some interesting dynamics that could be indicating a rate hike is coming. I look at the sector analysis, the Yen, NASDAQ, and a few others.
Traders, there was a very weak close in the NASDAQ yesterday and I think this key sector has been lost and is set to push stocks lower. We're still short small cap IWM due to its under-performance to the other major stock indexes when using Fibonacci retracements.
Conventional wisdom says that counter-trend trading is a losing game. I agree if you're using conventional tools! Using leading indicators that anticipate price movement allows you to construct high reward, low-risk entries. Join me as you take you through this options trade in the Russell 2000 ETF "IWM."
