Hey everyone! Wow, what a day we had. The markets moved up and up and up where a lot of short covering helped propel US Indexes to weekly highs. We need to be careful here with this large bounce higher since many “risk off” assets also moved up as well. Normally in big bullish moves risk off assets move hard down, but we did not get that in this case. In addition, Volatility Futures is still in a Backwardation term structure between FEB and MAR Volatility Futures which could suggest more fun and games ahead. So now is the time for Caution!! I have told our members that near term I am bullish but intermediate term more bearish and will be more willing to sell into any rally until I can see prices are held firm in place without taking out key pivot lows. Now here’s my take on the markets.

Hello Everyone, I hope you had a safe and Happy New Year’s Celebrations. Now it is time to settle in for a new trading year and thus far it promises to be a continuation of where we left off in 2015. I see a lot of new trade opportunities this year as the markets continue to correct from the highs made last year. I also believe we will see some surprises and some shakeouts as well. From Equities, Commodities, Treasuries and Currencies we will have a lot of opportunities to choose from. Meanwhile we are now caught in a harder move down as we begin the 2016 trading year and on the minds of many is the prospects of the US markets, along with Globally of a entering into a recession. This past week we saw all the US Indexes officially enter into a correction mode and now many are wondering if this will continue into an official Bear Market. Get my take here on where we are and where we could be heading as we kick off 4th Qtr Corporate Earnings.

Hello everyone! What an interesting trading week. The markets moved up nicely into the Federal Reserve Interest Rate hike and then only to see the markets take it all away and finish the week near the lows. The question now is will the markets finish in the green for the year or, will we continue on a downward bias. Check out my take below;
