Top Technical Indicators - How To Use The Parabolic SAR
Learn the basics of the Parabolic SAR indicator in under 4 minutes! Find more technical analysis tools and trader education at http://club.ino.com/?vidmar The Parabolic Stop and Reverse, originally developed by J. Welles Wilder, is a trend following indicator based on the idea that a strong trend will continue to increase in strength over time, following a parabolic arc. This indicator combines price and time components to determine entry and exit points, confirm trend direction and help establish stop loss values. The Parabolic SAR is normally shown as a series of dots placed on the chart either above or below a market's price. In an uptrend, the parabolic arc will be underneath the price and in a downtrend, the parabolic arc will be above the price.

A Black Swan Event Rocks Gold And The Swiss Franc Today
A black swan event is a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise and has major consequences. Today, such an event occurred causing the Swiss franc to soar as much as 30% and gold to jump to 4-month highs in chaotic trading after The Swiss National Bank (SNB) abandoned the cap on the currency's value against the euro. The Swiss National Bank (SNB) said the cap, introduced in September 2011, was no longer justified. No one predicted, hinted or even contemplated that The Swiss National Bank would do this. This move could well begin the demise of the euro that was cobbled together some 15 years ago. Personally, I am surprised to this day that this currency has survived as long as it has. The disparity between the work ethic of a country like Germany versus Greece is a joke - yet that is what the euro represents. A Flight To Quality As the Russian ruble continues to lose buying power, money is flowing into Switzerland from that country. I remember when I lived in Switzerland, flights used to arrive with passengers whose suitcases were stuffed full of illegal money. Make no mistake about it, this move by the Swiss National Bank is a game changer. Investors in Europe have long believed in the value of gold. Today's move in gold to 4-month highs underscores that belief. Gold has long been seen as a traditional safe haven out of paper money, and today we are seeing this all take place in real-time. I have been bullish on gold since I posted a special report on January 7th. I continue to look for this market to reach my initial target zone of $1,340. How Are We Doing With All This Market Volatility? I thought it would be interesting today to look at one of the three model portfolios and see how that portfolio is performing with all the recent volatility we have seen. This is the very same portfolio that outperformed 18 of the top 20 billionaire hedge fund managers last year. In today's video, I will share with you exactly how we are positioned in the market right now. You might be surprised to see why we are holding certain positions and not others in this ever fluctuating volatile market.

Traders Whiteboard Lesson 1
Today I want to share with you a trading tool that I learned a long time ago when I was member of the exchange and trading in the pits of Chicago. It was there amongst all the hustle and bustle, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the most successful traders in the world, that I learned one of the most important tools in trading. I have never forgotten this tool and in fact, I still use this tool everyday when I'm researching a potential trade. As computers get more and more sophisticated and are able to spit out trading algorithms faster than you can blink an eye, this simple tool continues to stand alone as a universal market truth. Little did I realize that this simple tool would prove to be so valuable. So let's get started with this same tool that I have been using now for the past 30 years. I will also share with you one of the core secrets that most traders miss when they use this powerful trading tool. It's a short lesson that visually illustrates when and how you should use this successful trading tool.

Tesla Disappoints And How The Trade Triangles Saved The Day
Yesterday we discussed how the Trade Triangles can help you take advantage of earnings. We had a lively discussion on the blog, with many members asking and explaining how the Trade Triangle technology works during the earnings season. This morning I randomly picked out four well-known stocks that reported yesterday, they are: Tesla Motors Inc.(NASDAQ:TSLA) Baidu Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU) Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO) Whole Foods Market Inc. (NASDAQ:WFM) Now, I picked these stocks out of a whole bunch of companies that were reporting earnings yesterday because these are well-known names, have good volume and are well-followed by traders. Here is how the Trade Triangles were positioned in each of those stocks before they released their earnings after the close yesterday. Tesla Motors Inc.(NASDAQ:TSLA) Sidelines Baidu Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU) Short Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO) Sidelines Whole Foods Market Inc. (NASDAQ:WFM) Long You would have been on the sidelines in two of them and held positions in the other two. You would have taken a position only if the weekly and monthly Trade Triangles are the same color. You would then exit the position on the close of business the next day. In today's example, we would be short the stock Baidu Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU) and would cover this position on the close of business today. We would be long in Whole Foods Market Inc. (NASDAQ:WFM) and would sell out of that position on the close today. The other two stocks, Tesla and Cisco, we would be on the sidelines and have nothing to do except see how the market reacts after the earnings are reported. I am writing this blog post well before the market opens, so we'll just have to see how these four stocks play out.

In today’s trading lesson, the sixth in the “TRADERS WHITEBOARD” series, we will be looking at what I call the “irrefutable laws of the marketplace.” I consider this lesson to be one of the most important, as it effects all markets. We only have to look at the recent history of Apple or Netflix to see how these “irrefutable laws” work in the marketplace. After watching this video, you will understand how sentiment can dramatically change in an instant and come away with a greater understanding of why Apple and Netflix had such dramatic moves. This is the essence of how all the markets move and important for you to learn, so you will know what to do next time.

How To Use The Trade Triangles For Stocks
Hello MarketClub members everywhere. Today’s video is a quick Trade Triangle tutorial using iRobot Corporation (NASDSQ:IRBT) as the example. Monthly Triangles determine trend and initial entry points. Weekly Triangles determine timing: Exits and re-entries. The last triangle issued on the monthly chart should always be used to identify the overall trend. You use the monthly triangle as an entry point to get into the stock within 24hrs. Then you are to look at the weekly triangles for your exit and re-entry points.

Can Earnings Be Predicted?
Today, I'm going analyze three stocks that are releasing their earnings after the close today. I'm going to see if I can determine where the stock is headed after earnings. I'll be using the Trade Triangle technology to help me analyze the direction of the market in a very methodical way, all before the companies report their earnings. Here is what the experts are estimating for earnings for each of the three companies. Autodesk Inc. (NASDAQ:ADSK) estimated to earn .08 cents a share. The Fresh Market Inc. (NASDAQ:TFM) estimated to earn .22 cents a share and The Gap Inc. (NYSE:GPS) estimated to earn .63 cents a share. The earnings are a consensus view of many analysts that track these stocks. Autodesk Inc. (NASDAQ:ADSK) With green monthly and weekly Trade Triangles the trend in this stock is clearly on the upside. I expect to see this market beat earnings and move higher. My prediction: A beat on earnings. Stock higher in after-hours trading. The Fresh Market Inc. (NASDAQ:TFM) This stock presents a little more of a mixed picture, the Trade Triangles show that the long-term trend is down with a red monthly Trade Triangle and the intermediate-term trend is up with a green weekly Trade Triangle. When you have a conflict between two Trade Triangles it indicates a sidelines position for this stock. My Prediction: Mixed earnings. No big change in stock after-hours. The Gap Inc. (NYSE:GPS) Both the weekly and monthly Trade Triangles are red indicating that the trend is down. It would be a surprise if this stock announced blockbuster earnings. More than likely their earnings will be flat to disappointing. My Prediction: Flat to disappointing earnings. Stock lower in after-hours trading. There can be no guarantees in trading and predicting earnings certainly falls in that category. Let's see how things turn out after earnings are announced after the close today.

Can MarketClub's Trade Triangle Technology Predict Earnings?
Today, I'm going to investigate whether or not MarketClub's Trade Triangle technology can predict stock earnings. To do this I randomly chose 7 stocks that just reported their Q3 earnings. Here are the rules I followed for taking or not taking a position in a stock before a company announced its earnings. Long And Short Rules Use the Trade Triangle technology to determine how you would have been positioned in each stock before they announced their earnings. You are looking for uniformity between the monthly and weekly Trade Triangles, i.e. a matching monthly and weekly green Trade Triangle would indicate holding a long position before an earnings announcement. Conversely, a matching monthly and weekly red Trade Triangle would indicate holding a short position before an earnings announcement. Sideline Rules When there is a conflict between the weekly and monthly Trade Triangles, a sideline position is in order. For example, if a monthly Trade Triangle is green and the weekly Trade Triangle is red, it would indicate a sideline position. Here are 7 stocks that just announced their earnings: Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) - monthly and weekly green Trade Triangles (expect better earnings) - Hold Long Position Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) - monthly red and weekly green Trade Triangles (expect flat to lower earnings) - Sidelines QUALCOMM Incorporated (NASDAQ:QCOM) - monthly red and weekly green Trade Triangles (expect flat to lower earnings) - Sidelines Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE:MRO) - monthly red and weekly green Trade Triangles (expect flat to lower earnings) - Sidelines CenturyLink Inc. (NYSE:CTL) - monthly red and weekly green Trade Triangles (expect flat to lower earnings) - Sidelines Bojangles' Inc. (NASDAQ:BOJA) - monthly red and weekly green Trade Triangles (expect flat to lower earnings) - Sidelines Lannett Company Inc. (NYSE:LCI) - monthly red and weekly green Trade Triangles (expect flat to lower earnings) - Sidelines Let's see how this strategy works today after the close with these three stocks. The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) - monthly red and weekly green Trade Triangles (expect flat to lower earnings) - Sidelines News Corporation (NASDAQ:NWSA) - monthly red and weekly green Trade Triangles (expect flat to lower earnings) - Sidelines Monster Beverage Corporation (NASDAQ:MNST) - monthly red and weekly green Trade Triangles (expect flat to lower earnings) - Sidelines In today's video, I will review all of the above stocks and update you on the last three stocks to see if there are any last minute changes.

12 Stocks Making New 52-week Highs
One thing I like to look at are strong trending stocks and nothing indicates a strong trending stock better than new 52-week highs. If you didn't already know this, there is an easy way to find stocks that are making 52-highs using MarketClub's Smart Scan Technology. You can find stocks in US, Canadian, and Australian markets and have the option of filtering and looking for just certain stocks that meet your criteria. For my purposes today, I looked at stocks that traded at $20 a share or higher, had a daily trading volume of 2 million shares or higher, and I just scanned US exchanges. Here's a list of the 12 stocks that met the criteria I set up: Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) Plum Creek Timber Co. Inc. (NYSE:PCL) The Home Depot Inc. (NYSE:HD) Visa Inc. (NYSE:V) The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ:GT) Paychex Inc. (NASDAQ:PAYX) Aflac Incorporated (NYSE:AFL) Masco Corporation (NYSE:MAS) Danaher Corp. (NYSE:DHR) Adobe Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ:ADBE) Salesforce.com Inc. (NYSE:CRM) Ctrip.com International Ltd. (NASDAQ:CTRP) In today's video, I'm going to be looking at each of these stocks and seeing which ones may be excellent candidates for a weekend play. For those of you who are not familiar with the 52-Week New Highs on Friday Rules, here's a refresher. Rule #1: On a new 52-week high, when the market closes at or near its high on a Friday, buy long and go home for the weekend. Rule #2: Exit the long position on the opening the following Tuesday. Rule #3: If the market opens lower on Monday, exit this position immediately. I invite you to watch today's video and look at the dozen stocks I found using MarketClub's Smart Scan technology. Be sure to leave a comment below this post and let us know what you're looking at and what you think of the markets.

How This One Indicator Could Make You Rich
Let's face it, there are hundreds of technical indicators out there doing all kinds of mischief in the market. Some of them are good and some of them may be hyped a little too much. For the moment I am excluding the Trade Triangle technology which I personally believe is one of the best methods to trade the markets. I often hear that the markets are not the same and that they have changed, and I have to agree to a certain extent they have changed. However, the fundamental purpose of the market is to set the price, good or bad, for a market, a commodity or anything else that is freely traded and that principle has not changed. Many times I've mentioned and written about how a market can only do three things. It can go up, down, or sideways and that's pretty much the way it has been since markets first began. There are very few things in life that are that clear-cut. Based on that premise, you just need to find an indicator that tells you when the market is going up and when it is going down. This dictates when you should be either long in the market or on the sidelines or short. The indicator that I'm looking at today is the Moving Average Convergence/Divergence, or the MACD, as it is commonly referred to. The MACD is a trading indicator used in technical analysis of stock prices, created by Gerald Appel in the late 1970s. I had the good fortune of touring with Gerald throughout the Far East, giving lectures on technical indicators and markets. I must say, I had a great time with Gerald who has a great sense of humor. I'm going to look at three stocks today that are very close to receiving major buy signals with the MACD indicator: Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)

A Short-Term Strategy To Conquer The FX Market
Here's a short-term trading strategy that you can use in the Forex market. Before I get into the nuts and bolts of the trading system, here are some quick background notes on the Forex market. Forex (FX) Background Notes The foreign exchange market is the largest, most liquid financial market in the world. According to the Bank for International Settlements, the average daily turnover in the global Forex market is estimated at $3.98 trillion. Some trading firms specializing in foreign exchange put the average even higher, with daily turnover in excess of $4 trillion. Why Forex Is Unique #1. It is the largest asset class in the world, leading to high liquidity. #2. It trades continuously 24 hours a day except weekends, i.e. trading from 22:00 GMT on Sunday (Sydney) until 22:00 GMT Friday (New York). #3. Low margins compared with other markets like stocks or fixed income. Check with your broker or an FX broker for margin requirements and commissions. Not For Everyone Now that you have some background on Forex trading, let's take a look at exactly how this short-term trading strategy works. I will be using MarketClub's Trade Triangle technology which is easy to use and follow. This particular strategy employs the weekly Trade Triangles for trend and the daily Trade Triangles for timing. This particular strategy is best suited for individuals who like to be active in the market. The short-term strategy requires entering orders every few days. In this short 5 minute video I am going to have you follow along as I walk you through the actual trading signals of this strategy from the beginning of 2013. At the end of the video, you'll be able to see every trade and how each trade fared, nothing has been left out. In trading there is no "Holy Grail," believe me, as everyone has been looking for one since trading first began. However, you don't need a "Holy Grail to trade Forex, you just need a trading system that has stood the test of time. For FX trading or any kind of trading you need to manage your losses and this short-term trading strategy takes care of that for you. Now, let's take a look at the pros and cons of this particular trading strategy. PROS: • Easy to follow and implement. • No grey areas, the program shows you with visual Triangles the market's short-term direction. • This trading strategy is best suited for active investors who are comfortable being active in the market. CONS: • If you are comfortable trading short-term, there really are no drawbacks to this strategy. Be sure to watch the video all the way through to the end, as I share with you some FX history that is pretty much unknown to the general Forex markets.

Beware Of The New Moon, It Could Cost You!
Yes, I know it sounds crazy but the reality is the phases of the moon do affect the way we feel. There has been a lot written about how the moon affects people, which in turn would affect the market. I first learned about this phenomenon in a little-known booklet titled, "The Great Wheat Secret". This tiny booklet was written and I suspect illustrated by a gentleman named Burton H. Pugh some time back in the 30s. In what turned out to be a series of booklets, Mr. Pugh went on to explain how a full moon created optimism and in turn pushed wheat prices to move higher. In his booklets he showed examples of the prices of wheat moving up at the Chicago Board of Trade during a series of moon cycles. It probably sounds a little crazy to you, but the moon cycles are really no different from market cycles. Many market cycles have been well documented in the marketplace for many years. That brings us to 2015 which is proving to be a very exacting year for many traders, as the market really hasn't gone anywhere except up and down. We are very close to seeing a full moon in just a couple of days on the 31st. That should bring some optimism into the general markets. What was also interesting to me was seeing how a new moon was affecting the markets. Here it seemed as though we had a clear cycle that could be tracked and linked to the lunar cycle. Now I don't want you to get carried away and think Adam's gone crazy, but take a look at the rhythm of the market and these dates. New moon date(s)and close in the S&P500 that day. Jan 20th Close 2022.55 Following low, Jan 30th @1994.99 = + 27.56 Feb 18 @ 2099.68 Following low, Mar 11th @2040.42 = + 57.26 Mar 20 @ 2108.10 Following low, Mar 26th @2056.15 = +51.95 April 18 @ 2100.40 Following low, May 6th @2080.15 = + 20.25 May 18 @ 2129.20 Following low, June 9th @2080.15 = + 49.05 June 16 @ 2096.29 Following low, July 27th @2046.68 = + 49.61 July 15 @ 2107.40 Following low, July 27th @2067.64 = + 39.76 With almost 300 points under its belt (295.44 to be exact) and a perfect record, maybe we should all be paying more attention to the New Moon. Be aware that the next New Moon is on August 14th. In addition to looking at the major indices, gold, crude oil and the euro, I will also be looking at a couple of stocks I found.

How to Perform Serious Sector Analysis Using ETFs
In today's video, I'll be examining nine different sectors of the economy and analyzing their trends using SPDR ETFs. Out of the nine different sectors, I'll be looking at three of these sectors with strong uptrends, while the remaining six sectors are in a transition stage. I will, of course, be applying the Trade Triangle technology to each of these nine sectors so you can clearly see how to put each of these sectors to work you. Creating an ETF sector portfolio is easy and is not as difficult as you may imagine. The first thing you need to do is create a separate portfolio in your Portfolio Manager and enter these nine ETF symbols. Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (PACF:XLE) Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (PACF:XLF) Health Care Select Sector SPDR ETF (PACF:XLV) Industrial Select Sector SPDR ETF (PACF:XLI) Materials Select Sector SPDR ETF (PACF:XLB) Consumer Discretionary Sector SPDR ETF (PACF:XLY) Consumers Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (PACF:XLP) Tech Select Sector SPDR ETF (PACF:XLK) Utility Select Sector SPDR ETF (PACF:XLU) Once you get all these symbols into your portfolio, you can name it, "Sector ETF Portfolio" or any other name you choose. There are advantages and disadvantages using ETFs, take for example XLK in the Tech sector. The advantage is that you have an ETF that invests in a broad spectrum of tech stocks. This gives you a way to invest without having to invest in each of the individual stocks contained in the ETF. The disadvantage is that an ETF is not going to perform as well as the individual stock. Because of its diversified structure, an ETF will only reflect the general trend of a sector.

In addition, the company provides wholesale voice services, including voice termination and toll free services. And the last stock I liked was Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. (NYSE:VRX) currently trading @ 209.90. Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. develops, manufactures, and markets pharmaceuticals, over-the-counter products, and medical devices worldwide. The company offers Solodyn to treat red and pus-filled pimples of acne in patients, as well as Ziana, Acanya, Atralin, Retin- A Micro, and ONEXTON gel; Wellbutrin XL for major depressive disorder in adults; Jublia for onychomycosis of the toenails; Xenazine for chorea; Targretin for Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma; Arestin, a subgingival sustained-release antibiotic; and PROVENGE for the treatment of prostate cancer. What is interesting is that all of these stocks are NYSE stocks. All 3 stocks are expected to close out the week higher. Look to take some profits next week. Do not get married to these stocks. If they start faltering and moving lower, exit immediately. Now let's jump to the video and show you how I found these stocks.

3 Energy Stocks To Watch
Hello MarketClub members everywhere. Today I have three energy stocks to share with you. I'll be analyzing all three and giving you my potential targets for each one. WPX Energy, Inc. (NYSE:WPX): All Trade Triangles are positive. Business Model: WPX Energy, Inc., an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company, engages in the exploitation and development of unconventional properties in the United States. Its principal areas of operation include the Permian Basin in Texas and New Mexico, the Williston Basin in North Dakota, and the San Juan Basin in New Mexico and Colorado. As of December 31, 2014, the company had proved reserves of 583 million barrels of oil equivalent. WPX Energy, Inc. was incorporated in 2011 and is headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Tenaris S.A. (NYSE:TS): All Trade Triangles are positive. Business Model: Tenaris S.A., through its subsidiaries, manufactures and distributes steel pipe products and other related services for the oil and gas industry, and other industrial applications. The company offers products for oil and gas drilling operations that include casings and tubings, premium connections, drill pipes, coiled tubing, hot-rolled and cold-drawn seamless tubes, non-tubular accessories, and devices, as well as technical consulting, pipe management, and field services. It also provides offshore line pipe products comprising top tensioned and steel catenary risers, export lines and flow lines, bends, corrosion resistant alloys, coiled line pipes, umbilical tubing, and coated pipes; seamless and welded tubes for onshore line pipe; various seamless steel tubes and pipes for refineries, petrochemical, and gas-processing plants; and tubular products for the power generation industry. QEP Resources, Inc. (NYSE:QEP): All Trade Triangles are positive. Business Model: QEP Resources, Inc., through its subsidiaries, operates as a natural gas and crude oil exploration and production company in the United States. The company conducts exploration and production activities in the Pinedale Anticline in western Wyoming; the Williston Basin in North Dakota; the Uinta Basin in eastern Utah; the Permian Basin in western Texas; the Haynesville/Cotton Valley in northwestern Louisiana; and other proven properties in Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado. As of December 31, 2015, it had estimated proved reserves of 3,620.2 billion cubic feet of natural gas equivalents. While the crude oil market has not given a buy signal yet, I do believe it is beginning to build a base to move up. All three stocks I mentioned today have made a substantial base and all three are in uptrends according to the Trade Triangle technology. As always caution must be used when buying any stock. As all three stocks are energy-related, I recommend that you choose one. If you decide to purchase all three make sure that your investment dollars equal the same dollar percentage of your portfolio as if you had just bought one of the three stocks.

All Eyes On Bitcoin's Death Cross
Hello traders everywhere. Technical traders and the market in general, are closely watching Bitcoin heading into next week. The reason for concern, a looming Death cross. As I noted earlier in the week, Bitcoin's 50-Day moving average has dropped to the closest proximity to its 200-Day moving average in nine months. The last time it crossed below that level was in 2015 where it remained for ten months before breaking out. The "death cross" pattern occurs when the 50-Day moving average drops below the 200-Day moving average. Thea idea is that this cross marks the spot where a shorter-term decline is turning into a longer-term downtrend. Bitcoin has come under growing pressure recently with Google announcing that they will not only ban all ads for cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin and initial coin offerings (ICOs), they will also ban cryptocurrency exchanges and wallets, as it seeks to "tackle emerging threats." Regulation is also becoming a growing concern for Bitcoin, and the cryptocurrency space as nations around the world are imposing stricter regulations on the use and mining of cryptocurrencies. Key Levels To Watch Next Week: S&P 500 (CME:SP500): 2,647.32 Dow (INDEX:DJI): 24,217.76 NASDAQ (NASDAQ:COMP): 7,084.83 Gold (NYMEX:GC.J18.E): 1,330.50 Crude Oil (NYMEX:CL.J18.E): 60.11 U.S. Dollar (NYBOT:DX.H18.E): 89.33 Bitcoin (CME:BRTI): 11,662.32

Were You Surprised By Netflix's BIG Move?
Hello MarketClub members everywhere. If you were surprised by the 20% jump by Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) yesterday, you weren't paying attention to the Trade Triangles. On October 3rd the monthly Trade Triangle triggered at $101.27 indicating that the major trend has once again resumed to the upside and that you should now be long this stock. That Trade Triangle signal was a full 15 days before today's big jump. In today's video update, I will be analyzing Netflix and giving you some upside projections for this popular streaming video service. I urge all MarketClub members and traders to pay close attention to the Trade Triangles as they often times signal big moves before anyone else has a clue of what's going on. In addition to Netflix will be taking a look at the gold and crude oil market as well as the major indices. But before we do that I would like to bring your attention to the POLL that we ran on Monday. The poll numbers indicated that 60% of our members expected the indices to move lower. Only 21% of all members expected the market to move higher. What was interesting to me was the fact that 19% of you which was the lowest polling number expected the market to stay around the same levels. Now I probably would have voted at the 19% level, simply because the Trade Triangles are showing a sideways action at the moment. Once you start projecting what you think is going to happen to the market in the future it becomes somewhat of a risky proposition. Predicting the future is a game that is very hard to win. It is better to go with the known facts you have at the time and adjust your thinking as time goes on. Just remember that old market adage "The trend is your friend" It's where you make the most profit. And what finds the trend and keeps you in the trend in better than anything else out there it's - MarketClub's Trade Triangle technology. I know this sounds like and advertisement, but I really do believe this is the best program for anyone trading or investing in the market. It has been very good to my family and me, and I'm very confident it will be very good for you and your family too.

Repeat, The Trend Is Your Friend
Throughout my trading career, two things of have stuck in my mind that I learned a long time ago on the floors of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. I was trading for my own account and a select few customers in a space that was both hostile and friendly at the same time. The first was, "the trend is your friend." Trends tend to persist longer than most people expect. Just look at the recent bullish trend in the equity markets that has been going on now for six years. By any mark in history this is an old and tired bull market. Only one time in history did a bull market trend ever extend to seven years. As they say when you climb Mount Everest, we are now in thin air. "The trend is your friend" is an amazing thing to remember when you are trading because that is where the big money is made. The next saying I learned as a young trader in the pits of Chicago was, "when in doubt get out." Sometimes you get a gut feeling in your stomach that things just aren't right. We all have emotions and feelings which sometimes get the better of us when we are trading and in many cases can work against us in the trading arena. However, there can be times when they serve you very well and I believe we're in one of those times. Arthur Cutten, a legendary speculator in the 1920s, was once asked, "What is the hardest thing about trading?" And he answered, "holding on to a winning position." The temptation to take profits off the table too early in a move is very real. One of the worst feelings in the world, and I know because I've been there, is to take your profits too early only to see the market continue higher. Then you say to yourself, "I will wait for a pullback, because it's just too high right now." When the pullback does not occur and the market goes still higher, you get less and less confident of putting on new position and therefore miss the major part of the move. This is the part of the move that can make your year. That is the huge advantage that our Trade Triangle technology has over an emotional, gut-based trading approach. The Trade Triangles determine the trend and stay in the trend as long as the trend remains intact. We had a major trend change in the DOW on June 30th, that was 2 1/2 months ago and a 1,000 points higher from where the market is trading now. I still see no reason to get excited about the long side of this market, it is just too early to be trying to pick a bottom right now. Relax and let the Trade Triangles do what they do best and let them show you when a bottom is in place. Just remember, the trend is your friend.

Never Do What This Once Smart Hedge Fund Manager Did
Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Tuesday, the 13th of August. Never Do What This Once Smart Hedge Fund Manager Did - Not Once, But Twice! Oh my, where do I start? This once smart hedge fund manager used to be good, so why did they make some unbelievable rookie mistakes? What were these rookie mistakes? 1. No money management. 2. Picking a very public argument with someone in the business who is bigger, more powerful and swings a bigger axe. The reason for this seemingly non-professional behavior is still a mystery to many traders that I have spoken to. One theory I have is this trader was beginning to believe his own press clippings, and believed he could do no wrong in the market. One lesson I learned many years ago is that no one is bigger than the market and that you cannot fight market trends. So what is the name of this hedge fund manager? His name is William Ackman. He's a smart guy, but he made two serious, and I would say, pretty irresponsible trades. These two trades in hindsight have cost his investors millions in losses and are the trades he will long be remembered for. 1. He got married to two of his positions. 2. He then picked a very public battle with an even bigger hedge fund manager. In one of his stock picks, which is the J.C. Penney disaster, Mr. Ackman for the most part was his own worst enemy. He kept trying to re-invent a brick and mortar store in an online world and totally disregarded all the known and key retail marketing metrics. His next big mistake was trying to talk down Herbalife (NYSE:HLF). Mr. Ackman was telling anyone who would listen that Herbalife was a huge Ponzi system. It was during this smackdown of Herbalife that Carl Icahn stepped in (great track record and worth more than Mr. Ackman) and purchased a ton of Herbalife stock. This vote of confidence pushed the stock of Herbalife to its highest levels and values in over a year! I don't care who you are Mr. Ackman, but that was a lot of your investors' money to lose in a very public battle with Mr. Icahn. Today we will be looking at Herbalife (NYSE:HLF) and J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP) to see how these stocks should have been traded. This just in: The Board of J.C. Penney announced today that William Ackman had resigned from the Board. In a prepared statement, Mr. Ackman had this to say: "My stepping down from the Board is the most constructive way forward for J.C. Penney and all other parties involved." Amen, Mr. Ackmen. A Sleeping Giant Awakes Rumors of a new iPhone over the weekend rallied the shares of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) sharply on Monday on the heaviest volume in 12 days. With all of our Trade Triangles in a positive mode, I am bullish on this stock. Today, I am watching the market action in Apple closely, a close over $469.25 and $470 will begin, in my opinion, to accelerate this stock's upward move. I am targeting the $550 to $575 levels on the upside. The Markets Are On Holiday, Are You? Yep, I plead guilty to taking some time off in August, did you? In fact, most of France closes down in August as the entire country goes on holiday. It seems that many traders are taking time off before the real trading begins after Labor Day. It would appear that the market has moved into a more laid back, holiday mode and I would not be surprised to see it stay that way for the next couple of weeks. Out of the three major indices we track, DOW, S&P 500 and the NASDAQ, only the DOW is indicating for us to be on the sidelines at the moment. However, all three major indices remain in a long term bullish mode.

The Perfect ETF Portfolio
Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere! Today, I'm going to be looking at the Perfect ETF Portfolio. This is a very simple portfolio to follow and track and we provide you with all the signals and turning points before they occur. The Perfect ETF Portfolio was designed to track and take advantage of the major financial markets we have identified as being important in the long run, stocks, gold, the Dollar and crude oil. These four ETF instruments were chosen to give your 401(k) program or retirement program the broadest possible protection, no matter what happens in the world. After all, it is your retirement money and your nest egg, so this is not money you should be gambling with. To represent stocks, I chose the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (PACF:SPY). To represent the purchasing power of the Dollar, I picked the CurrencyShares Euro ETF (PACF:FXE). To mimic the action in crude oil, I went with the The United States Oil ETF (PACF:USO). Lastly, I chose the SPDR Gold Shares (PACF:GLD) to mirror the price of gold.. With the 401(k), you cannot short the market, therefore you are frequently in the markets when they are going up and out of various markets when they are going down, as is the case now in gold, crude oil and the Euro. That money that is not being used in the market is of course working for you in a money market fund whose returns we do not reflect in our trading results. Now remember, this is your retirement account and you are not swinging for the fences to make tremendous returns, you're simply looking to get a good return on the capital. This portfolio is extremely conservative in nature and while it has shown some excellent returns historically, those returns may or may not be replicated in the future. We started tracking this portfolio in 2008 and for that year we saw a 12% return on invested capital. You may remember that 2008 was a disastrous year for the stock market that many investors are just now getting back to square one some six years later. In 2009, we almost had a double-digit return, we just missed that target with a gain of 9.8%. 2010 produced a gain of 7.2% and in 2011 we bounced back in double digit returns with an 11% gain. In 2012, we witnessed a very small 1.1% loss for the year, which was made up the following year in 2013 with a gain of 2.1%. The goal of the Perfect ETF Portfolio is to protect capital (your nest egg) at all costs. Over the last six years, this portfolio has returned a very respectable 6.8% on capital not including interest on unused money in your portfolio. In today's video, I will be looking at the portfolio and showing you exactly how you can implement these very same tactics and strategies in your retirement portfolio.

Paris - A Seminal Moment In History
Make no mistake about it, the horrific terrorist acts that took place in France on Friday were indeed an act of war against the West. French President Francois Hollande should be congratulated for calling the attacks for what they were and not hiding behind some politically correct verbiage. Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of France and indeed to Europe. My concern is, what is going to happen to the markets and how the events in Europe are going to translate across the Atlantic to our equity markets. The world continues to change but one thing is for sure, we're all linked financially for better or worse. Let's take a look at the major indices individually and see what's happening this afternoon. DOW (INDEX:DJI) - you should be on the sidelines as a red weekly Trade Triangle was triggered today. SP500 (CME:SP500) - you should be on the sidelines as a red weekly Trade Triangle was triggered today. NASDAQ (NASDAQ:COMP) - major downtrend has resumed based on the red weekly Trade Triangle that triggered today. Gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) - you should be on the sidelines as a green daily Trade Triangle was triggered today. EURO (FOREX:EURUSD) - major trend still down. Crude Oil (NYMEX:CL.F16.E) - major trend still down. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) - you should be on the sidelines as a red weekly Trade Triangle was triggered today. Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) - you should be on the sidelines as a red weekly Trade Triangle was triggered today. Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) - the trend is positive for Amazon with a stop exit signal at $596. Netflix.com Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) - a move below $99.35 pushes this stock into the neutral zone. Under Armour Inc. (NYSE:UA) - sideways action - a move below 80.10 signals a reversal to the downside. I will be covering all of these markets in today's video.

Nine months without a losing trade...
In today's short educational trading video, I'm going to show you how it was possible to trade for nine months straight without a losing trade. I will also share with you a step-by-step approach to every single trade. Don't worry, there are not thousands, or even hundreds of trades to follow! In fact, there are less than a handful to track. The video will show you how we entered every trade and how the trade was exited. You'll have a front row seat to watch how this was possible for nine months straight, trading without a loss in one of the largest, most liquid stocks in the world. The initial feedback we received in a recent sneak preview has been extremely positive, and in several cases it was described as an "eye opener" for many of these viewers. The video runs about 4 1/2 minutes. I personally believe this video will give you insight into how the markets really work. After you watch the video, you can make up your own mind whether this approach would be useful for your own trading or not.

Game changer for Gannett.
Gannett (NYSE:GCI), the publisher of USA TODAY and other media outlets, announced that it has agreed to buy the Belo Corp. (NYSE:BLC) for about $1.5 billion. Stock of Gannett jumped the most it has in four years, as this dramatically changes the landscape in the media business. Today's acquisition makes Gannett the fourth-largest owner of major network affiliates in the country. Gannett has now effectively doubled their number of stations from 23 to 43. Make no mistake about it, this is a game changer for Gannett. In today's four minute video, I will be analyzing the stock of Gannett (NYSE:GCI) and projecting how high this stock could go. I think you'll find my approach refreshing and informative. Enjoy the video, and every success in your own trading.

Sell In May And Go Away
This old adage has been around Wall Street for as long as anyone can remember. What does it mean? Well, it means sell your stocks in May, have a nice summer and come back in September and get long stocks again if the signals are aligned. With that in mind, I analyzed the S&P 500 market and noticed a pattern which may make selling in May, the right action to take this year. In this special video, I explain exactly what I'm looking at and how you can replicate this on your own charts. The video runs about three minutes and I think you'll find it well worth your time to check it out and learn this technique. I hope you learn how this tool works and how you can apply it and make your own trading even more profitable.

The "Death Cross": What it is and how to trade it
In today's short video, we look at two important aspects of the market -- one is an intraday technique which I will show you how to use to determine where markets will turn, and the other is the infamous "death cross". The death cross does not occur that often, in fact, in the last 2 1/2 years we've only seen this happen three times. The most recent occurred just last week and is something that every investor and trader should pay close attention to. I believe that this video will help you understand what the death cross is and how you can construct it and use it in your own trading. A lot of traders and investors watch this very closely so you should too. As always our videos are free to watch and there's no need for registration. If you like the video please feel free to comment on our blog and give us your thoughts on the market. All the best, Adam Hewison President of INO.com

Turkey Crisis Rattles Stock Market
Hello traders everywhere. Geopolitical events have a way of popping up when you least expect it. Case in point, we were looking and waiting for the U.S. stock market too high record highs with the S&P 500 within a whisker of hitting its record only to wake up this morning to a sharp down move on the Turkey news. That news has ended what looked to be the S&P 500's six straight weeks of gains, it's first such streak since November, with the S&P 500 currently floating between a weekly loss and gain. The DOW was down over 200 points in early trading and has backed off the lows a tad but now posting a weekly loss while the NASDAQ remains in a strong position to close out the week in positive territory. The Turkish lira tumbled to a record low against the dollar due to concerns over the country's economy and a deepening rift with the United States. President Trump doubled tariffs on aluminum and steel imports from Turkey, deepening the currency's losses and raising concerns that the crisis could weigh on other economies. In turn, that led U.S. investors to safe-haven assets, with the dollar rising to a 13-month high, up +1.3% for the week and U.S. bond yields slipping to a three-week low. Gold continues to head lower for the week losing -.35% and maintaining its long-term downtrend with five straight weeks of losses. Even though crude oil is up today, +1.23%, it is posting its second straight week of losses with a -1.15% loss this week. After issuing a new red weekly Trade Triangle on Wednesday Bitcoin posted a gain on Thursday and is relatively unchanged today, but it will post a weekly loss of -7.9% after losing a little over -14% last week. Key Levels To Watch Next Week: S&P 500 (CME:SP500): 2,796.34 Dow (INDEX:DJI): 24,988.31 NASDAQ (NASDAQ:COMP): 7,933.31 Gold (NYMEX:GC.Z18.E): 1,225.60 Crude Oil (NYMEX:CL.U18.E): 69.37 U.S. Dollar (NYBOT:DX.M18.E): 93.87 Bitcoin (CME:BRTI): 8,476.34

Do Quarterly Charts Hold The Key?
Hello MarketClub members everywhere! With the markets closed tomorrow for the Easter holiday, today is the end of the week. The question now is, how comfortable are investors going to be over this long 3 day weekend? One of the tools I love using in MarketClub is the quarterly charts. I'm pretty confident in saying that very few traders ever watch these charts, but they should. They can provide you with a broad overall picture of the long-term trend that you just can't see on daily and weekly charts. I think you'll be surprised by what the quarterly charts are revealing today. Below I have outlined last week's close, as well as key levels for the PSAR. Perhaps by the time you read this post the market will have already broken the Parabolic support levels. If that is the case, I would expect further weakness in the market next week. DOW (INDEX:DJI) Close last Friday: 17,602 PSAR level today 17,392.74 Monthly Trade Triangle: DOWN Weekly Trade Triangle: UP Conclusion: Trading Range/Sideline Position S&P 500 (CME:SP500) Close last Friday: 2,049.58 PSAR level today 2,030.45 Monthly Trade Triangle: DOWN Weekly Trade Triangle: UP Conclusion: Trading Range/Sideline Position NASDAQ (NASDAQ:COMP) Close last Friday: 4,795.80 PSAR level today 4,700.81 Monthly Trade Triangle: DOWN Weekly Trade Triangle: UP Conclusion: Trading Range/Sideline Position In addition to the numbers above, I will be showing you some potential retracement levels for each of the major indices. Gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO) Close last Friday: 1,255 Spot Gold PSAR level today 1,264.36 Monthly Trade Triangle: UP Weekly Trade Triangle: DOWN Daily Trade Triangle: DOWN Conclusion: Short Position based on a red weekly Trade Triangle Crude Oil (NYMEX:CL.K16.E) Close last Friday: 41.17 PSAR level today: 42.27 Monthly Trade Triangle: DOWN Weekly Trade Triangle: UP Daily Trade Triangle: DOWN Conclusion: Trading Range/Sideline Position

Should You Buy Crude Oil Or Gold?
One of the things I love about trading is how the dynamics of markets change. Change can happen quite quickly in many instances and quite slowly in others. In today's video, I'm going to be looking at some slow and fast changes in crude oil, gold, as well as the major markets. I will also be looking at tools that you can use to spot changes and accelerations in markets and how you can set these tools up to work for you. September promises to be a very choppy month as the markets settle down after the dramatic downturn we all witnessed in late August. One of the great things about the market is you don't have to be in the market all the time, you can be on the sidelines. Having a position on the sidelines is what I call the third position, there is nothing wrong with just observing the market from the safety of sidelines. Two days ago, the gold market gave us a buy signal which I will be taking a look at in today's video. I'll also be looking at crude oil and the fact that this market has come back down to an area of support and will explore whether it is worth buying this commodity either in the form of an ETF like the USO or an actual futures contract.

Did Bill Ackman Get Valeant (VRX) Wrong?
There is a lot of talk today about the stock Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. (NYSE:VRX) from one of its largest shareholders, Bill Ackman. You may remember Mr. Ackman from his ill-fated forays into JCPenney, Herbalife and Target. Today he is defending (via a conference call) one of his biggest investments in Canadian pharmaceutical company, Valeant. This stock was very instrumental in helping Mr. Ackman's Pershing Square Capital be the best-performing hedge fund last year, with a return of 40.4%. This year it's another story as this stock has tanked and Pershing has a reported paper loss of 1.5 billion dollars. Allegations of impropriety and finagling its sales and the way it does business have all contributed to Valeant's slide in the marketplace. The reason I bring this to your attention is because sometimes as investors we get married to a position and long after our profit has dwindled, continue to justify that same position in our minds as being good ("it will come back tomorrow," "I'll give it more time," and a host of other excuses). All of the excuses are meant to justify that we're right and eventually everyone will see that. As successful as Mr. Ackman has been, he does have a tendency to stay with losing positions too long, in my opinion. You only have to look back at JCPenney and Herbalife to know that what I say is true. Both of those stocks turned out to be disasters for Pershing Square Capital and Mr.Ackman. And that brings me to my next point, which is that an unemotional approach allows you to be a "lover and not a fighter." By using a program like MarketClub's Trade Triangles in a stock like Valeant, you would've made more money in a systematic fashion than Pershing Square Capital and Bill Ackman made and have now lost in this stock. In today's video I will be looking at Valeant and showing you exactly where the Trade Triangles would have bought and sold this stock. I will also show you how much money you would've made following this simple formula. In addition to Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. (NYSE:VRX), I will be doing my weekend round up of what the markets have done for the week and where I see some major stocks headed for the rest of the quarter.

How To Use The Trade Triangles For Forex
For short term trading use the strategy below. Weekly Triangles determine trend and possible entry points. Daily Triangles determine timing: exits, entries and re-entries. The last triangle issued on the weekly chart should always be used to identify the overall trend. You can also use the weekly triangle as the initial entry point. Then you are to look at the daily triangles for possible exit and re-entry points, or entry points if your weekly is in a steady trend. Key Rule: always trade with the trend. Make sure your weekly and daily triangles correspond in direction. *If you are a shorter term trader, it is possible to use the weekly triangles to determine overall trend and possible entry points and the daily chart to determine individual timing points. Please be aware of the short term whipsaws, and lack of overall trend strength. As a short-term trader, you want to pay particular attention to the daily Trade Triangle (New 3 Day High/Low). If the Triangle is GREEN, you should then confirm the signals viability status with the weekly Trade Triangle (New 3 Week High/Low). The odds are in your favor that the trend will continue if both the Daily and Weekly light are both corresponding in color. If both Triangles are GREEN, then a positive movement is likely. However, if the Daily and Weekly Triangles are RED, then a negative movement is likely. If the Triangles differ in color then you should consider keeping a sidelines position. How It Works: The Daily triangle is created whenever a market moves over the previous three day high and remains above the previous three day low. The reverse is true when the low of the previous three days is broken to the downside, it creates a RED Triangle. This is an automatic stop-out of a long position if the Weekly Triangle is GREEN. If the Weekly Triangle is RED, it signals a short sale is in order. 5 Successful Short-Term Trading Rules: 1) The odds are in your favor when you trade with the major trend. 2) Always trade using stops. Never cancel a stop. 3) Plan your trade and trade your plan. 4) Never try to pick tops or bottoms, the market may surprise you. 5) Go with the flow. Don’t fight the markets.

Get Ready For The Mid Week Move
Hello MarketClub members everywhere. We have arrived the middle of the trading week. I've always looked at Wednesday as a day to reassess your positions after the trading action on Monday and Tuesday. Do you want to stay or exit those positions or do you want to continue to hold them to the end of the week and beyond? So let's do that, let's take a look at where we are in the markets and how you should be positioning your portfolio for the end of the week. DOW (INDEX:DJI): This index is slightly lower for the week. However, all of the Trade Triangles remain green and the trend continues to the upside. This would be a hold unless something dramatic happens today. S&P 500 (CME:SP500): Much like the DOW the S&P 500 is lower for the week, but remains in a positive trend with higher target levels. Unless something dramatic happens today you should be holding this position going into the weekend. NASDAQ (NASDAQ:COMP): The NASDAQ has had very little change for the week and remains in the confines of a general uptrend as defined by the Trade Triangles. I would expect that this index will begin to show strength towards the end of the week. And this would be a recommended hold position. Crude Oil (NYMEX:CL.U16.E): Big changes this week in the crude oil market as we received a weekly green Trade Triangle which indicates a reversal of the downward trend. This market is higher for the week and is set to test the $48 level on the September contract. Hold long positions in this market for the weekend. Gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO): Gold has been fairly choppy this week. However, this market is higher for the week. With all of the Trade Triangles in a positive mode and the fact that I believe the gold market is at or close to a low cyclic period, you would want to hold all positions going into the weekend. Alert: Please remember that markets can change quite dramatically especially in the waning days of summer when the markets are thinly traded. Always have levels in your mind that if the market penetrates those levels, you will exit your position. This is called discipline and over the long-term, it will save you and make you money. In today's video update I will be looking at all of these markets plus one or two stocks that I feel warrant your attention.

Dow Jones Industrial Joins Sell-Off Party
Hello traders everywhere. The Dow Jones Industrial finally succumbed to the pressure of the current market sell-off issuing a red weekly Trade Triangle at 26,303.35 after falling -431 points at it’s lowest level in morning trading approaching the 50-day moving average which stands at 26,004.22. The move lower came after the DOW had been relatively unchanged the last couple of days as both the S&P and NASDAQ were under heavy selling pressure. All three indexes are currently trading down over -1.3% on the day. The S&P 500 opened trading below its 50-day MA, that move lower came after the S&P briefly broke the 50-day MA yesterday. As it stands right now, the S&P is on track to post its worst weekly losing streak in a little over two years standing at three weeks. The next level of support to keep an one will be the 200-day MA standing at 2,765.77. A move below that level could signal a steeper sell-off. Meanwhile, the NASDAQ continues to get pummeled as the tech sector is seeing the most significant losses. The NASDAQ is on pace to have it’s the worst trading month since January of 2016. Key support lies at the 7,449.62 which is where the 200-day MA is. A move right below that level (7,443.10) will trigger a new red monthly Trade Triangle signaling a move lower is ahead. Key Levels To Watch This Week: S&P 500 (CME:SP500): 2,940.91 Dow (INDEX:DJI): 26,951.81 NASDAQ (NASDAQ:COMP): 7,443.10/8,107.38 Gold (NYMEX:GC.Z18.E): 1,208.00 Crude Oil (NYMEX:CL.X18.E): 75.28 U.S. Dollar (NYBOT:DX.Z18.E): 93.39 Bitcoin (CME:BRTI): 6,822.97

All The Trade Triangles Turn Green For Apple
Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 5th of August. All The Trade Triangles Turn Green For Apple This morning, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) moved to a five month high and completed a major base. Apple has, without too much fanfare, rallied from a recent low around $390 and triggered a major monthly Trade Triangle this morning with its move over $466. I can see a move for Apple to the $550 to $575 area. Lots Of Green Trade Triangles Of the six markets I report on, almost all of them have green Trade Triangles and strong upward trends in place. The one exception is gold, as the gold market continues to be a conundrum wrapped in an enigma. Nothing seems to move this market off base, not news, not economic conditions (think QE) or wars. Eventually, there will be a new bull market in gold, whether that happens this years remains to be seen.
