Hey Folks we had a very interesting and strong finish to the trading week. Poor earnings from some of the global players like Caterpillar [CAT] and IBM were quickly offset by earnings from Amazon [AMZN], Microsoft [MSFT] and Google [GOOGL]. This put some strong wind in the sails of technology and the bulls. If that was not enough we also had dovish statements from “Super Mario” from the ECB and a 0.25 rate cut by China to move price action higher into this weekend. Now all attention will be focused on the coming FOMC meeting and what Janet Yellen will do. Here is my take on the current markets.

Hey Folks, the markets had a nice finish to an otherwise choppy trading week where we are having more indications of a global economic slowdown and a belief the US FEDs will hold off until 2016 for a hike in interest rates…here is my take on the current price action in the markets and where we could possibly go next.

Hey Folks, what an interesting start to the final Quarter of 2015. Certainly leading up to this point the markets have shown two completely different personalities; for most of 2015 the markets have been relatively quiet and stable, and then going into August we got a wildly different tone and volatile environment. I believe it caught many off guard and clearly the large pop in volatility certainly exceeded all records thus far. Now we have more fear in the markets and we do not have the traditional “buy the dip” comments coming from many…in this weekly update I give you my take on where we are and what could happen. If you are not a member of our group I would encourage you to come over and check us out as we are having another good year keeping our members on the right side of the price action.

Hey everyone! This past week we saw volatility maintain its current elevated levels and Volatility Futures still has a Backwardation Term Structure. Fear is very much present in these markets. In this weekly update I bring back up my original post about 3 weeks ago titled “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”. In that post I talked about possible downside price levels. In this weekly round-up I give an updated view on that post. Enjoy!
