Are you ready for a simple swing trading strategy that uses large player volume and pocket pivots?
The idea is to screen for pocket pivots and effective volume studies that show large players accumulating. You look for a positive divergence between large player volume and price and make sure the Twiggs Money Flow confirms the positive divergence on the large player volume. I would not enter a swing long position if the Twiggs Money Flow doesn’t confirm the signal. Continue reading “Simple Swing Trading Strategy Using Large Players and Pocket Pivots”
In an economic news report posted on YouTube (link above) by X22 Report, it cites how the average Millennial has less than $1,000 saved to buy a home. Not only do I think that’s true, I would add that the average Millennial has zero money saved for retirement.
Economic News Forecasts Recession
Most younger people have low paying service sector jobs like McDonald’s or Carl’s Junior, and most are dealing with student loan debt.
X22 Report says that the economy has already entered into a recession and is on the verge of a complete collapse.
Please keep in mind that the X22 Report is a perma-bear YouTube channel and they make money off of doomsday preppers and pitching gold and silver. They operate in the alternative news niche and so understand the alternative news industry. Don’t go bipolar and go out and short the market just yet. Nevertheless, it’s good to listen to the bearish perspective to balance against the bull perspective of the mainstream financial media.
A weekly Saturday night financial show that attempts to predict market direction for the week ahead by looking at a variety of technical and fundamental indicators. This week’s show includes commentary on the Fed’s first and only rate hike in 2016, Eli Lilly’s long-acting Basal Insulin that’s now available in the US, takeover rumors circulating about Qorvo, Protalix Biotherapeutics $24 million order to treat Gaucher patients in Brazil, the FDA approval of Vericel’s Maci for the repair of cartilage defects of the knee, Silicon Motion’s supplying of SSD solutions to the Alibaba Group, and more.
With the stock market hitting all-time highs, everybody wants to know if we are in a giant bubble.
You can’t trade and make money if you’re not in the market. If the fear that we are in a bubble is keeping you out, then you’re not making money.
The honey badger doesn’t care. The honey badger loves to climb walls of worry.
You can get an early read on which way the market is headed by tracking transports. Fedex is a bellwether stock in the transports industry.
The chart of FedEx just did a breakout above 180 and hit a new high. The rising Twiggs Money Flow shows FedEx is under heavy accumulation.
Remember folks, bull markets don’t die of old age, they are murdered by the Fed.
The chart below shows profit margins [blue] are falling as employee compensation [brown] rises.
Since 2015, employee compensation has started to recover as the labor market tightens and corporate earnings are falling (as a % of Net Value Added).
If you look back to the 1960s, you can see that when the labor market reaches capacity, profits fall as labor costs rise. The Federal Reserve intervenes to battle inflation from rising wages which will cause the next recession. The Fed does not usually intervene in a meaningful way until wages rise above 74% of corporate profits. In other words, we have a long way to go regarding rising wages before the Fed is going to hike rates so high that it causes the next recession.
Financial Education posted this video on if we are in a giant bubble. While I don’t agree with everything he says, he does make some good points IMO.
We know what Trump is bringing to the globalists brawl that has already begun with shots like China threatening a trade war against the US. Globalists are not going just to roll over quietly for a Trump Administration.
Lisa Haven thinks that globalists could crash the US economy in response to Trump’s win. Lisa thinks globalists could even try to assassinate Trump.
I think Lisa Haven is a bit too far on the side of paranoia, but I like hearing alternative views and some of the excellent points she makes. Regardless if you agree with Lisa Haven or not, one thing is clear that we can all agree on. Stock prices are not up because of fundamentals but on risky speculation on a Trump win which begs the question. Are we being set up for a big stock market crash?
