Ely Hydes’ father took him to every baseball park in the Major Leagues. Ely and his father loved baseball. Ely took his glove to every game hoping to catch a fly ball. He took it to every game for decades. He kept taking his glove because you never know. Every baseball fan lives to catch a fly ball. For a kid, it can be a dream come true. But no ball was ever hit to him. No ball ever landed in his mitt. Until Thursday… Future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols jacked a solo home run in Comerica Park and... Continue reading

The Dow dropped over 400 points. It this the beginning of the Crash of 2019? No! Here are two important reasons why not. There has never been a crash in a bull market ever. In history. Let me repeat: there has never been a crash in a bull market in history. Crashes occur at the END of bear markets! Crashes are the final capitulation of the bulls when they finally give up and sell. The second critical reason is that ll crashes have been preceded by a flat or negative yield curve ONE YEAR IN ADVANCE! We recently saw the... Continue reading

One of the best ways to increase your trading income in 2019 is to learn how to do covered calls. What are covered calls? Covered calls is an option strategy where you buy 100 shares of stock and sell a call option. You end up with a position that has less risk than the stock market but can make much more money. How is that possible? The reduced risk is easy to understand. You are long stock which means you make money when the stock goes up. But you are also short a call which makes money when the stock...

Buy Europe Europe has been a basket case compared to the US for a long time and it is now. So I want to buy European stocks! What? Let me explain. Europe has been economically weak for the last several years. As a result, the European Central Bank kept a very loose monetary policy. That kept up the economy from dropping into recession and held up the stock market to some extent. Then the Fed started raising interest rates a year or so ago. This led to ideas that the ECB would follow. But that would plunge the European economy... Continue reading

I was talking to a woman yesterday and she talked about her “spare time” trading. She gets up early and does 45 minutes of Pilates. She then sits down and does her trading for about 1 hour. She does it after the market opens. She then spends the rest of the day doing whatever she feels like! For her, she likes to travel around the world. Her last trip was to Argentina for two weeks. Of course she was able to do all her daily routine of Pilates and trading from there will no problem. Her life is a continue... Continue reading

One of my most important leading indicators of a bear market is flashing a danger signal. The chart above shows the yield curve which is simply what interest rates are at various times of ending. So it says 2Y at the bottom and that shows the interest rate for treasury notes that mature in 2 years. As you can see, the nearby end of the yield curve has turned negative. This is one of the most powerful indicators of a major bear market and recession in about a year. Every bear market and recession has been led by this trigger... Continue reading

The Financial Crisis of 2008 was devastating. The stock market dropped 50%. Your retirement plan was devastated. The housing market suffered the biggest bear market since the Dirty Thirties. Many people, you?, lost their house. Everybody suffered. Companies went bankrupt. Many people, you?, lost their jobs. Banks were shaken. Many went bankrupt. What I just wrote is all true but doesn't really tell the story. The real story is the real suffering that tens of millions of people went through. A friend of mine worked for many years in a construction company. He had built a nice life for himself... Continue reading

I’ve taught thousands and thousands of people how to make money trading. Yet a big percentage never actually trade. They take the time and spend the money to come to my class and then never do anything. This drives me nuts. I know that they will make money if they follow the Rules I teach. But they don’t. So think about it. Let’s say they would make just $10,000 per year for the rest of their life. Let’s say they live 40 more years. That’s $400,000 they will never see! And that doesn’t count any compounding! Lack of confidence is... Continue reading

Hello Trader, The market rallied sharply yesterday. Was that the end of the bear market? I don’t think so. Instead, I think it is what is called a dead cat bounce. Let’s break it down. Note how the market was accelerating to the downside as we went through the week of December 17. It culminated with a sharp down day on Friday on extremely high volume. This was followed on Monday with another sharp down day but on small volume. (Of course volume was light on Monday because it was the day before Christmas.) I believe that Friday/Monday was what...

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell has raised interest rates consistently all year and has signaled another increase in a few weeks. The Fed Funds rate is now 2.25% Are the Fed rate hikes biting? Are they high enough to slow the economy? The job of the Fed is, they say, to take away the punch bowl just as the party gets good. Certainly, the economy has been booming by any measure. I believe that the Fed has almost gotten to the point where they are slowing the economy. Why? Several reasons. The stock market is wobbly. The stock market is a... Continue reading
