A Potential Opportunity in Apple, Part 2

I spend hours on the weekend just deciding on what I’ll focus on for the, typically longer, Monday Seasonal Forecaster newsletter. As I was going through, trying to narrow down which stocks I wanted to focus on, an email came in. It was from MarketTamer (I like receiving email from those guys). Gareth had produced → Read More

Imitiation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery

How does this potential investment vehicle sound as an addition to your personal portfolio? 1)    It is a major equity index, and therefore not subject to the volatile swings so common in individual company stocks – stocks that can be buffeted about by corporate news (eg.: approval or denial of a drug by the FDA; → Read More

Apple Targeted For Investigation

Apple Targeted For Investigation

Imagine, readers, what would happen if that headline appeared in an Associated Press Tweet on Tuesday morning around 10 AM!  Combine three words that, on their own, would not necessarily grab the world’s attention and splash them all over the internet during U.S trading hours, and then watch tens of thousands of traders (including me) → Read More

Those One Day Corrections Are Refreshing

Those One Day Corrections Are Refreshing

After Wednesday’s drop, it was reasonable to view it as the beginning of an overdue pullback. Yesterday’s gap-down open looked to be a continuation, and confirmation, of that pullback. But buyers came in, showing no fear. IWM, the Russell 2000 ETF, ended up forming a possible reversal pattern. A one-day pullback? Notice that back on → Read More

Tech is Perking Up

What is going on in the market? Anyone not born yesterday knows the markets are not acting normal and are overdue for a moderate pullback.
