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 […]

Montreal Traders June Meetup: Trading the Market Micro-Structure

With the recent bump in market volatility having a good understanding of market structure and order execution is more important than ever. In this month’s Meetup, we will look into when, why and how you might want to worry about the bid/ask spread, the order book, and all of the related market micro-structure details. How can we trade to minimize the cost of (or even profit from) a significant spread? We will address a wide range of topics such as dark vs lit order books, the advantages and disadvantages of different exchanges, shaving tactics, pairs trading, etc. As always there […]

Weekly Market Outlook For June 10 – 14, 2019

What a difference one week can make. In last week’s video, we noted that with the new week and new month buyers had the opportunity to wrest control from the sellers and boy did they ever. Markets reversed on Tuesday and we saw major short covering for the rest of the week. If you’re a student of price and time then you had to appreciate what transpired. In this week’s video, we look at the technical outlook for the VXXB SPY QQQ IWM DIA TLT BTCUSD TOTAL UKOIL EEM XOP MSFT AAPL MRK BAX XLV XLU XLP XLB and XLF […]

Trend change?

Trend change?

As I outlined in the Weekly Market Outlook video, the new week and month have brought some respite from the onslaught of selling we had in NA indices in May. In order to see a real bottom formed, we want to see last week’s highs taken out which is still some distance away. Bitcoin, on the other hand, is the exact opposite.We had strong buying right into the end of May and now with the new month, the effervescence has somewhat faded as last week’s lows have been violated and now Bitcoin is seeing the first test of its uptrend […]

Weekly Market Outlook For June 3 – 7, 2019

Here’s your weekly market analysis video to prepare for the coming week. As we noted in last week’s video, with all the timescales aligned to the downside we can expect any surprises to likely be nasty ones. This week continued and new tariff talks pushed the markets lower triggering some our setups and hitting some of our targets. June the 3rd marks a new week and new month so buyers will have the opportunity to try to wrest control from the sellers. If buyers fail to hold control then watch out – especially if sellers can once again align all […]

Fool me once, shame on you; Fool me twice, shame on me.

Fool me once, shame on you; Fool me twice, shame on me.

Markets continue to do what they do best and that is fool most people most of the time. Tuesday’s AM rally quickly fizzled out and turned into a rout in the afternoon. Can you spot the inside bar reversal on the 4H chart? This morning we gapped up only to give back all of those gains. Can you spot the inside bar reversal? Now we’re setting up for a gap down tomorrow on Trump’s plan to tariff Mexico and you can expect that anyone who got long today will be on the pain-train. Spot the pattern? Fool me once, shame […]

An Examination Of Major Market Reversals

At this past week’s Meetup, I shared my findings around a research project of mine where I examined some of history’s major market reversals.  As the saying goes, history doesn’t repeat itself but it does rhyme. Based on the research I carried out across 5 major bear markets although each market has its own distinct circumstances they also shared some common important lessons and takeaways. I’ve received a lot of feedback about the perfect timing of the presentation so decided to share the presentation with all of our members and readers.

Weekly Market Outlook For May 27 – 31, 2019

Here’s your weekly market analysis video to prepare for the coming week. The markets saw some heavy selling this past week where we saw a lot of volatility in the after-hours/pre-markets which led to a week full of gaps and a sharp sell-off in oil punctuating the downward price action. Note all the NA indices are both now below their quarterly opens and set up the potential for more selling. Shortened holiday week due to Memorial Day but trade talks, earnings, and a potential tech war will be the focus for the coming week. In this week’s video, we look […]
