Weekend Review and Watchlist

In last week’s review I stated:- “Is that it? I have no idea. Certainly a correction of around 7% would fit very neatly into the typical range of corrections, and it would look very similar to the last test of the 200-day MA two years ago. The 200-day hasn’t started to roll over just yet, …

I met with several non-financial people this week, and it was interesting that the market became a subject of conversation, as it was more than the usual chit-chat because they know I’m involved in it, they actually wanted to ask about it, so it appears the market has become volatile enough that it has their …

A fairly uneventful week. Just kidding. Although in some respects it wasn’t the week for me some might imagine. The previous week was much more eventful in terms of signals with five exits.

It always fascinates me how when you sit watching the day to day market moves, your short-term memory of where we are can get severely distorted. With a ton of major news events this week; the Fed meeting, the Scotland vote, and the Alibaba IPO to name just three, the noise level became the most …

I won’t go into a full top-down review here as there are others who do that far better than me, but I want to just briefly touch on the $SPY as from where I stand the pullback we saw in the S&P this week looked to be well contained. So far it looks as if …

The market is a stone’s throw from new highs yet again, after giving a few scares in a handful of names this week. Anyone who plays momentum names is all too aware of the ‘stairs up, elevator down’ price action that comes with it, and we saw it happen this week with swift but arguably …
