Hello Folks, this week we saw breakouts in NASDAQ and the SPX making new highs, but will it last or is this just a warm-up for a much larger pull back? With US Gov economic data coming in an under whelming fashion and earnings giving us a mixed view, we’re still grinding higher! The typical American investor is sitting on the sidelines during this rally we’ve been going thru for the past few years but big money is clearly playing the game! Now going into the summer months the old adage of “sell in May and go away” will be heard by many as an excuse to take profits now. Here is my take for the current markets:

Hello everyone! We had a good week from a trading perspective. Friday’s market brought most traders back to earth with possible issues in China and Greece bringing fear and volatility back into the forefront! If you are not aware, China changed (tightened) their margin rules on their markets while also allowing short selling…and the Greeks, well the Greeks are back in the news again! Enough already here as I am sure this one will be interesting to watch! Volatility came back into force on Friday with the VIX moving above 15 during the day before settling lower. Now the question that is on the mind of most traders is will the markets continue downward or will some Fed Governor save the market with a well timed pronouncement that they will remain dovish for our entire lifetimes and keep the rates low….currently most analysts feel the Feds will raise the interest rates here in the US during their September meeting…only time will tell. For now we will play the current price action, no matter how illogical it may appear to be. Below is my take on the current markets. Enjoy!

Hey everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. We had a very well attended session this Saturday morning. If you are not aware, the first Saturday of each new month (unless it is a holiday weekend) we hold a live FREE Webinar session recapping the key events for the financial markets for the prior month. In this case we simply recapped the entire first quarter of global markets. We had a wide audience in attendance; -from Asian, Latin American, European, Arabian, American and many other regional market participants in attendance.

It really is a global marketplace and if you do not either follow or understand what is happening in other countries you immediately put yourself at an investing disadvantage. All markets are now traded with money flowing from one market to another, in one currency and out of the other. As such, this offers us exciting and new opportunities to profit. And with the proliferation of new Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) allowing us to place trades in asset classes in ways we could not have even dreamed of a few years ago does make it very appealing.

But you must understand how the markets work, you must understand the inter-relationships of these various asset classes, and have a solid understand of how volatility can change the nature of your investment strategy to be longer term successful. I invite you to sit back and take a look at our First Quarter Market Recap below. We discuss currencies, country performance, various commodity asset classes and the current market indices and their relative performance to other countries. Also for those that are viewing this free video we are now opening up an opportunity to join our User Group with a monthly offer. Essentially you can join our User Group for a month and if you like what you see, we will credit your monthly fee against an annual membership. And by clicking HERE you can also see a few other benefits we will thrown in for you! Now enjoy this free First Quarter Market Recap by clicking on the link below:

Hello everyone. I hope you are looking forward to a great weekend. I know this past week was very interesting for the financial markets where we saw a lot of volatility coupled with a down finish to the week. We essentially gave up all our gains from the prior week and now the S&P 500 Futures market is sitting just under it’s 2015 opening price. The strong sectors continue to be small and mid cap with Finance and technology falling. The big question is where are we going from here? With 2 more trading days before the end of the first quarter we can expect to see some portfolio re-balancing early in the week. And when we toss in the trouble brewing in Yemen we can see some strong activity in the Energy markets as well. Take a look at my take on the current market action and where we can go from here:

Hey folks, this past week was very interesting for the financial markets. With the US Feds effectively keeping their feet on the brakes for interest rates the markets really loved the news and rose to new heights. Now the question is this: after the euphoric week knowing we have a very dovish Fed how long will it take for the equity market to come back to reality? And can the markets continue making all time highs when the Government data suggest the economy is weak at best…check out this week’s video round-up below and see my take on where we are and where we can go from here:

Hey everyone, I hope you are all having a great weekend! We have a very interesting week coming up for the Global Financial markets. The big event this week will be the US FOMC announcement on their US interest rate policy. This has the potential to really move the markets! We also have Triple Option Witching where we have Monthly, Quarterly and Futures Options expiring, which all seems to give the markets a bullish bias all other things being equal. For those those that are non members of our User Group I wanted you to know we are also launching our Secret Trader Portfolio where I am issuing trade alerts I am taking via SMS and via email on a $25,000 portfolio. For now, only members can participate in this service and at a very large discounted fee. This service will be open to non members of our User Group in a few months but if you cannot wait I would highly encourage you to come on board now so that you can participate. Now enjoy my take below on the current market action:
