Weekly Market Outlook For July 29 – AUG. 2, 2019

Buyers once again took control this past week and pushed the SPY and QQQ to all-time highs. As we’ve been noting on the weekly charts on SPY, QQQ, and DIA the buyers continue their dominance – when will the sellers be able to create a new weekly low? This coming week marks the final trading week of July and the beginning of August so we’ll want to pay close attention to see how price trades around the monthly open. Plenty of macro news and earnings on tap but AAPL’s earnings on Tuesday and Wednesday’s FOMC will be front in center […]

As we enter into the lazy dog days of summer I’m enjoying a couple of weeks of sun-soaked R&R in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.  Here’s to the trader life and appreciating the weekly chart review process beside the pool. Now in case you missed it, this week sellers pulled the indices back this week as earnings were front and center on the minds of traders and investors. Less than spectacular results from the financials (C), transports (CSX), and tech (NFLX) allowed the […]

Weekly Market Outlook For July 22 – 26, 2019

Sellers pulled the indices back this week as earnings were front and center on the minds of traders and investors. Less than spectacular results from the financials (C), transports (CSX), and tech (NFLX) allowed the sellers to finally have a winning week with the VXX logging its first green week in 6 weeks. Next week has a plethora of earnings so be sure to check the earnings calendar. This coming week we want to watch and see if sellers can continue their control by taking out this week’s lows which could possibly shift price the major timeframes to align to […]

Weekly Market Outlook For July 15 – 19, 2019

This week the SPY, QQQ, and DIA continued to log in all-time highs as market participants were pleased with what they heard out of the Fed and the potential for further rate cuts. The VXX continued to melt like an ice cube sitting outside in the summer hitting all-time lows. Looking at VIX futures contract shows an outside bar on the weekly chart with the potential now to go after April’s lows. As I stated in last week’s video the momentum continues to be to the upside on the SPY, QQQ, and DIA so sellers have the large task of […]

Weekly Market Outlook For July 8 – 12, 2019

In case you missed it – this week marked the start to the new week, month, and quarter and the SPY, QQQ, and DIA all hit all-time highs. For the 4th straight week momentum for the SPY, QQQ, and DIA continues to be to the upside so sellers have the large task of trying to take out the prior week’s lows before we see momentum waning. The long bond gave a false sell signal earlier in the week just to end the week with a large outside bar. GLD took a breather for the week and we’ll want to see […]

Weekly Market Outlook For July 1 – 5, 2019

The first half of the trading year is now in the books. The SPY, QQQ, and DIA closed out the quarter with an inside week. Sellers had their opportunity to drag the indices down but by mid-week, the downside momentum had waned and buyers held strong to close out the week on a strong note and melting VXX back into its previous all-time lows. This week begins the start of Q3 and we’ll want to be paying attention to see how price trades around that weekly/monthly/quarterly open. In this week’s video, we look at the technical outlook for the VXXB […]

Weekly Market Outlook For June 24 – 28, 2019

Solid gains for NA equities this past week as the SPY hit all-time highs before some profit taking and quadruple witching pin action at the end of the week. Only one trading week remains in the month and the quarter. Do the buyers have enough in the tank to keep the momentum going? As we spotlighted last week Bitcoin was the asset to watch. This week Bitcoin, as well as the entire crypto space, continued to impress as the buyers pushed BTCUSD above the 11K mark with a lot less fanfare than we had we broke above that level back […]

Weekly Market Outlook For June 17 – 21, 2019

A quiet week for the North American equities markets with most of the major indices logging small gains. Gold has been back in play due to the geopolitical risk but one can’t help but be underwhelmed by returns especially when compared with digital gold – Bitcoin. The gold miners, however, look a lot more interesting and GDX deserves a place back on your watchlist. In this week’s video, we look at the technical outlook for the VXXB SPY QQQ IWM DIA TLT GLD USDCAD GDX BTCUSD TOTAL UKOIL EEM XOP NFLX TWTR PFE MRK BAX XLV XLU XLP WMT and […]
