This stock could have an explosive move higher as signaled by the rapidly rising large players volume while the price has pulled back over the last few days. This stock may be a good way to play the rise of chips inside computer assisted driving technology and even autonomous driving vehicles. Warning: the fundamentals of this company are fairly poor which is why the stock is so cheap. I would classify this stock as a mad-money play and done only with money you can afford to lose.
With all the drama going on, the price of gold is up more than 8% so far in 2017. Amazingly, so far in 2017 gold is even performing better than the US dollar. Here is one way of profiting off the increasing level of drama in Washington and the US economy.
A good setup on the chart heading into an earnings announcement where the company is likely to beat. Building-materials companies like this are going to benefit big-league if a $1 trillion job's program is passed to revamp the nation's infrastructure.
The idea of this swing trade is to short QQQ because it has been up for 9 days in a row. This is a risky short-term swing trade on a bet that the market is ready to do a small retracement as nothing keeps going straight up.
First Bancshares is a company on a high growth trajectory and with inclusion on the Russell 2000 index for the first time. The company has made some strategic acquisitions and mergers over the last year and is growing EPS and revenue nicely. The company just reported earnings and revenue beats on July 21, 2017.
A big horizontal breakout and rising large players volume suggests a lot of people with a lot of money are buying this stock. CKO Kickboxing will now be offered at Madison Square Garden. Owning this stock is like owning a little bit of various sporting teams. I'm going to go running with the Bulls in this stock and chase it higher on the channel breakout.
More bank stocks than ever are looking like compelling trades. Everything changed for banks after the stress tests a few weeks ago and the Federal Reserve allowing banks to increase share buybacks and dividends.
Everyone is going crazy about this article I wrote on Cellectis. I've got comments from people telling me to mortgage my house and park a truck-load of money into this company. Calm down everyone. Cellectis is years away from and kind of FDA approval of their UCAR T-cell therapy. There's plenty of time to be calm and not chase this stock higher.
Financial stocks and in particular banking stocks, are looking stronger. You have raising rates, less regulations, and increase in share buybacks and dividends that are all acting as a tail-wind for banking stocks.
Quality large cap stocks are the name of the game in the Ishares MSCI USA Quality Factor ETF. In some ways this is the ultimate monopoly ETF that you can play on the increasing consolidation across major technology companies. If Republicans get their way, the government is not going to be breaking up these monopolies in the next 4 years and so big money is moving into these corporations.
Novartis is going to be the first company to get FDA approval on a CAR T therapy. The actual FDA approval is likely to come by October 2017. Novartis is running with the lead CAR T therapy pack in this exciting new medicine that opens up a whole new way of battling cancer.
Germany is asking the EU to impose counter-sanctions against the US, for imposing sanctions against Russia. Stupid Congress forced President Trump to sign an increased sanctions bill into law that even has our allies turning their backs against us. Germany claims that the increased sanctions against Russia by Congress are actually illegal according to International law. Doesn't Germany know? The US Congress is above the law because their the law makers (insider trading in Congress is apparently legal). Way to go Congressional idiots. You're turning even our allies against us.

Knowing when to trade is just as important as knowing what to trade. Don't force a trade. If a trade isn't there, it isn't there. You forcing a trade is likely to result in a losing trade. Sometimes the best trade is no trade.
Republicans turned the table on Democrats and asked for a broader investigation into Hillary Clinton and the money she accepted from Russia through her Clinton Foundation. Just days later, Democrats suddenly put an abrupt end to the Senate Russia investigation panel.
Hypocrisy abounds in this nutty Presidential cycle with the losing party using the judicial system and the mainstream media to divert attention away from their own illegal activities. It's not going to work thanks to the internet as they no longer control the public discussion and hence what people are thinking and talking about.
This video about how China has destroyed the U.S. manufacturing sector should be mandatory in every economics course in the country. My economics professor Peter Navarro produced this educational video that every stock trader and investor should see. Speaking of trend-forecasting, the awareness by the public of the issues shown in this video are what ultimately led to the election of Donald Trump and the Nationalism America first movement to take back our prosperity from decades worth of so called "free-trade".
Tariffs and quotas will be a big part of the national dialogue as the America first movement seeks to level the playing field and bring back jobs from abroad. In this economics lesson, I show how tariffs and quotas impact supply and demand.
Supply-side economics is the heart-beat of Republicans economic agenda as the Trump Administration aims fiscal policy squarely at shifting the supply curve outward and undoing the disastrous years of stagnation during the Obama Administration which resulted in the supply curve shifting inward.
Congress is not representing the American people and is completely out of control right now. I demand that my government leave Russia alone. What ever happened to "America First" and working on improving relations with Russia?
I wanted to spend some time slowing down and going back to review the price action of the US dollar on July 26, 2017 after the Federal Reserve announcement. I think the US dollar is telling us exactly where institutional traders minds are. The dollar is also giving us important signals about where the market and economy goes from here.
I created a powerful stock screener for you that looks for stocks that are trading sideways with large players stepping in and buying. The idea is to position in these stocks within a few days before a big pop to the upside. Enjoy!
Is trading in your comfort zone holding you back? If you're not constantly pushing outside your comfort zone, your trading performance may be suffering. In this lesson I teach about how comfort zones in life also apply to your trading.
My best trades are when I'm out of my comfort zone.
Pocket pivots are a valuable tool for traders but few charting software programs exist that calculate the pocket pivots for you and then plots them on a chart. In this lesson I reveal a charting software package that charts not only pocket pivot signals but also large players volume.
Amateur traders lament the use of dark pools to hide institutional trader activities. Now some online brokerage firms have moved to even the playing field by tracking orders that come off the dark pools. In this lesson I show traders how to use Etrade to track dark pool activity.
News can be divided into 3 categories for analysis. Traders often lose money because they categorize noise as a stock market catalyst by mistake. In this lesson, I discuss the 3 types of news and which one makes the best catalysts and which one you should avoid.
