Bulls Crush It – End November with Bang

December 1st, 2018

Click for Video The bulls fought hard this past week and the S&P 500 was up 4.85%! This is exactly what the doctor ordered when it came to saving the bullish structure of the S&P 500. The S&P 500 bounced from support and is now toward the top of a smaller trading range but still in the bottom half of the larger trading range started at the beginning of this year. The longer-term indicators stayed positive for November. They were EXTREMELY close to turning negative, but they did not. That means we have at least another month of a risk on stature when it comes to the long-term holdings. The US equities market is still the place to be over the All World (ex-USA) and short-term treasuries. When it comes to the styles of the market, growth is beating value and large caps are still the leaders over small caps….

S&P 500 Down 3.79% – Bears Apply Pressure to Bull Market

November 28th, 2018

Be Right, Wrong & Happy – Youtube Video The S&P 500 was down 3.79% for the week. Ouch! The bears took the bulls behind the wood shed and let them have it! Of course, all is not lost for the bulls. The S&P 500 starts the week on support, is a possible double bottom and ABC correction (The markets move in legs…leg up, leg down, etc…An ABC correction is simply a leg down, up and then down again before another advance to the upside.). I think what is most interesting is our longer-term indicators are close to signaling a bear market. We have to wait for the trigger until the end of this month only a week away. If last Friday was the last day of the month, the signals would have triggered sell. So, it is important for the bulls to show their power by the end of the…

3 Reasons Why to Create Your Own Investment Opinion – Head & Shoulder Pattern

November 28th, 2018

Click – Watch – Subscribe! I noticed a popular chart pattern in the S&P 500 this week while reviewing the portfolio positions and looking for new opportunities. I got really curious to see if others noticed the pattern. So, I searched around and started reading different commentary about the S&P 500. I’ll tell you, my head started to spin. What I quickly noticed is the energy in which the people commenting would defend their position! Here’s the deal…let’s take two people with two different opinions about the stock market…one thinks it’s going to go up, the other thinks it’s going to go down. Which one is right? The answer? Both and Neither. So, how can that be? The overall reason is that people’s judgement is coming from different plans (or lack thereof). Breaking it down a little further, I’m going to give you the top three reason’s to NEVER take someone else’s opinion…

How to STOP Worrying about Stock Market Direction (Quick Market Update)

November 15th, 2018

How to Stop Worrying about the Stock Market – Click to Follow The S&P 500 finished the week up 2.13% by the closing bell on Friday. The first leg down from the market top is officially over. This action triggered a buy last week on the S&P 500; however, we did not take it with any additional positions because of the strength of the first leg down. The long-term, monthly, trend is still up on the S&P 500. The S&P 500 remains stronger than short-term treasuries and the MSCI All-World (ex-USA) index. This tells us we want to continue to focus on the US Equities markets. The styles we like within US equities are Large Caps and Growth. The reason being is that they continue to outpace their counterparts of Small Caps and Value. We are not looking to add any new positions this week. We are looking for at least another leg down…

November 3rd, 2018

YouTube Video – I’m going to tell you a cold, hard fact about the stock market. Nobody knows with 100% certainty if it is going to go up, down, or sideways. Speculation is difficult…particularly about the future. So what do you do about? Well, one thing NOT to do is worry about market direction. You’ve heard this before; Don’t worry about what you can’t control. You can’t control market direction so it is absolutely unhealthy to worry about it. Furthermore, what you can control, you can…so why worry about it!? Here is what you can do though…Control Risk. There are really two main schools of thought when it comes to controlling risk. The first and most common way people tend to control risk is through diversification. Essentially what you are attempting to control through diversification is volatility. If you are using this approach, it often times makes sense holding onto investments…
