Wild Swings Makes Cash King

The market has had a few wild swings lately. While the down move was the easier one to catch, staying out of the market during times like these can be a wise option, too As traders we certainly have an urge and itch to always be in the action and making trades, but if you … Read more

Pullback On Horizon?

Good news, the S&P 500 (SPY) and Invesco QQQ (Nasdaq exchange traded fund) have been hitting new all-time highs. This reinforces the stance I had that the SPY move down in mid-June was just a dip. It was a little intense at the time, but I definitely wasn’t communicating anything bearish to the Moxie IndicatorTM … Read more

Is Market Behavior Pre-Determined?

The market has been on a tear since the Covid-19 low back around mid-March of last year, but there have been some levels where the market has become volatile and run into resistance. Many of those areas coincide with Fibonacci (Fib) levels, which I think is fascinating. I always wonder if Fibonacci points have become … Read more

Two Day Trade?

I wrote a newsletter the other week describing … Read more

Hey Market Pilots, Usually I am a pretty active trader, but recently there have been many names out there which have given me significant signs that I should hold on for longer. So when and how do we decide to go from trading a stock to holding a stock longer term? For trading, it’s mostly … Read more

SL: Election Day 2020

Hey Market Pilots, So we finally had the 2020 election on Tuesday, but now it’s Wednesday and we don’t have an answer. I believe this was of no surprise to the vast majority of us, as we knew this year’s election was going to be just another crazy thing to add to the list of … Read more
