One Step towards Success
John S Hopkins Jr - December 20, 2014
We just completed a trading survey that got a substantial response. It pointed out a few of the toughest tasks traders face each day in the market. It also pointed out that a small percentage of traders beat the market in 2014 and that a substantial percentage under performed compared to the overall market . . . keep reading
Tom Bowley's Market Chatter for December 12, 2014
Tom Bowley - December 12, 2014
A huge jobs report this morning has been met with more buying of equities and a selloff in treasuries. This is a bullish response to a strong report and not the kind of negative reaction that many had feared, including me. Equities aren't exactly soaring, but they have responded positively . . . keep reading

Stocks will continue as Asset of Choice
John S Hopkins Jr - November 30, 2014
Many analysts keep calling for a major market correction, but guess what? It won't be coming anytime soon. Here's why. . . . keep reading
Tom Bowley's Market Chatter for November 28, 2014
Tom Bowley - November 28, 2014
This is just a quick Market Chatter today as the stock market will close within an hour for an abbreviated holiday-related trading session. Crude oil prices tumbled this morning and remain under pressure as energy stocks are being pummeled. The XLE (Energy ETF) is down more than 6% as most names within the group are taking a similar fall. . . . keep reading
Fed reiterates its position
John S Hopkins Jr - November 23, 2014
The Federal Reserve released minutes from its most recent meeting last week and traders saw first hand that the Fed is even more worried about deflation then inflation. In other words, instead of worrying about prices skyrocketing, the Fed is even more concerned that prices could decelerate, resulting in a stagnant or falling economy. . . . keep reading
Tom Bowley's Market Chatter for November 21, 2014
Tom Bowley - November 21, 2014
We started the day off on a sour note with all of our major indices lower throughout the pre-market hours and right through this morning's open. The NASDAQ actually printed a seven day low in the first hour this morning, but that index, along with the others, has come roaring back . . . keep reading
Tom Bowley's Market Chatter for November 14, 2014
Tom Bowley - November 14, 2014
Our major indices are hugging the flat line today and looking for short-term direction. We haven't seen a lot of appreciation in stock prices lately as money mostly rotates from sector to sector. The good news for the bulls, however, is that we've seen almost zero selling episodes in the past month - maybe 2 or 3 times where the S&P 500 has pulled back 1% or so . . . keep reading
What's next?
John S Hopkins Jr - November 09, 2014
Both the Dow and S&P hit record highs last week leading to the question, what's next . . . keep reading
Tom Bowley's Market Chatter for November 7, 2014
Tom Bowley - November 07, 2014
It's been a fairly interesting (yet boring) week. Volume on the NASDAQ has been steady around 2 billion shares per day, which is not light. We've gone almost nowhere, however, just consolidating in sideways fashion. After a huge selloff in early to mid October, we saw a breathtaking rally back above previous highs. So spending a week in a 1% range on the NASDAQ has left traders in a sleepy kind of mood . . . keep reading
An Astonishing Two Weeks
John S Hopkins Jr - November 02, 2014
The past two weeks could be a case study in market behavior. It showed how fear engulfed traders as the major indexes approached "official" correction levels then showed the power of the bull market which has been going on for over 5.5 years . . . keep reading
Tom Bowley's Market Chatter for October 31, 2014
Tom Bowley - October 31, 2014
From a bullish perspective, many indices and sectors are continuing to print higher highs and higher lows - that winning streak hasn't been broken. It's very difficult to be negative about a market that in the near-term keeps moving higher. Momentum can be very powerful so shorting into this strength can be frustrating for sure . . . keep reading
The Jolt I was Expecting - Sort of
John S Hopkins Jr - October 19, 2014
The mostly negative action this week reminded me of a blog I did about a month ago titled, "Be ready for the big jolt." The premise of the blog was that we need to be prepared in some way for sudden, out of the blue type events like we saw this week. . . . keep reading
Tom Bowley's Market Chatter for October 17, 2014
Tom Bowley - October 17, 2014
It's not often you can sit back and say the market's doing just about what you expected. But that's the case today. Options expire. Miraculously (sarcasm), the filled candlesticks have disappeared and we're all of a sudden seeing a much more bullish trading environment. Of course, we've discussed how higher prices would work to the benefit of market makers as options expire and that's exactly what we've seen . . . keep reading
No room to spare
John S Hopkins Jr - October 12, 2014
The selling into the end of the week was fierce with not much spared. The NASDAQ in particular got hammered on Friday losing 2.33%. The Dow and S&P lost ground as well but I like to focus on the S&P as it tracks 500 companies and thus is a good representation of what's going on in the overall market . . . keep reading
Tom Bowley's Market Chatter for October 10, 2014
Tom Bowley - October 10, 2014
The Russell 2000 recently lost key intermediate-term price support near 1090 and the selling quickly accelerated. Today, it's the NASDAQ's turn to test key support. 4326.28 is the number to watch on the close. Today's low hit 4299 before bouncing. Given that options expire next Friday and we've had such a significant short-term decline, it's not out of the question that we'll see a bounce to damage all the net in-the-money put premium that currently exists . . . keep reading
