January 24, 2015: The Shadow Of Crisis Is Passed…

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
Thy Phone and thy Pen they comfort me.

– 23rd Psalm, 2.0

As we said in the show, we almost didn’t do a program this week. Listening to the State Of The Union almost convinced us that all of our problems were solved. Then we heard about this deflated football thing and decided we really needed to stay on the case…

This week we talked about not just the Shadow of Crisis, but the Storm Clouds on the Horizon; specifically the Greek vote, the ECB QE plan, the Canadian interest rate cut, the takeover of Yemen, the death of King Abdullah, and the unpegging of the Swiss Franc. We also discussed using options to protect against all of these things and shared some thoughts on gold.

We may be pessimists, but if we are right, we will have at least one more week of things to talk about…

January 3, 2015: In These Markets, Always Use Protection…

This was a follow-up to our last show from 12/20 (we took a week off at Christmas. Can I say that word on the internet?) Anyway, we got the big run-up in the market after the Fed meeting, and as we suspected, Put options got a lot cheaper (although not as cheap as when we talked about this in November). This week we talked about why it is so important to protect your investments with Puts, and why they were a great vehicle to make money on the downside. We talked a bit about Greece, the strong dollar and oil, all of which will impact markets this year, and probably not in a good way, for most people. As a general note, the market action right now seems very weak, but volume is also very low. However, I don’t see anything that dampens my concern about the market in 2015.

A quick heads-up. I will be doing a special one day class on my market forecast for 2015 . We gave away tickets during the show, but if you are reading this and you haven’t missed the class (and it isn’t full), you can get a free ticket by calling (844) 887-2337 and tell them you saw this on the Next Week In Stocks website. The official class title is: “2015 Market Forecast:  How to Prepare and Prosper in the Coming Year.” In it I will cover not only my view on a variety of markets (including real estate, gold, oil, US and emerging market stocks and bonds), but also how to use different asset classes (Stocks, Options, Futures, Forex) in this environment. I will be doing the class personally, so if you want to better understand my analysis, ask questions, argue with my conclusions, come on out. I haven’t done one of these since early last year and I’m really looking forward to it.
