Folks, with the First Quarter behind us we have seen the US market Volatility come in at record low numbers! In fact, according to Barron’s, it set a record for the lowest Q1 coming in at an average of 11.69 since the VIX was created in 1990. Now one thing to understand; –Volatility can stay lower much longer than you have the patience to play Volatility Long! However, as we are kicking off the Second Qtr. we are seeing possible signs of Volatility coming out of hibernation. Get my take on the current markets in this weeks video.

Hey Folks, we saw some interesting moves in US equities, currencies and the bond markets this past week when the FEDs hiked the rates 25 bps. Price action moved completely opposite of what many investors were looking for but we were ready in our User Group and saw the moves coming. And there are many reasons for this so take a look at the week’s Market Round-Up to get my take!

Hey Everyone, we are still in a strong bullish market that has a lot of hope and optimism built in. This week we saw Volatility start to move higher only to come back down as we finished out this week. With very low Volatility and very high optimism in the the belief price action can keep running higher always causes me to pause; –to sit back and add to my cash position and see where price action will move. We also saw some interesting moves in price action on Bonds, the US Dollar and Gold. Get my take here in this week’s round-up.
