June 11, 2016: Horses For Courses

Today we talked about big picture strategies. One of the problems that most retail investors face is that they only have one arrow in the quiver:  buy stuff and hope it goes up. To be successful in the markets requires (to mix metaphors) more tools in the toolbox. Today we talked about some of those tools. We also reviewed a Wall Street Journal article talking about how some big time money managers (including George Soros) were coming back into the the market, betting that it is going to fall.

When this show was recorded, the S&P 500 was back over 2,100. We talked about making money in this situation using Put options. Last year, this trade worked every time (if you chose the right option and exit strategy) and we discussed whether or not it would work again this time. One time it will likely fail, but as of this writing, it would have succeeded again. All this assumes that you know which option to pick, etc., but it has been a pretty easy trade for educated traders.

September 5, 2015: Psyched Out…

This show was recorded on Wednesday night, September 2nd, at about 10pm. The market was up, both during the day and after hours, and there was talk of us having “reached the bottom”. I don’t think so. It appears that the psychology of the market has changed and that the selling will continue.

In the show we talked about how to interpret the market’s reaction to Friday’s jobs report (two days after this was recorded). The suspicion was that the market would likely move down (which it did), regardless of whether the report was good or bad, but that the key was to watch for the follow through next week. I suspect it will continue to be weak. That said, there could be quite a bit of volatility between now and the Fed meeting and perhaps even some strong rallies. I would look for rallies as opportunities to buy puts and to short, rather than looking for dips to buy.

On the radio it can be difficult to explain these ideas clearly so I am going to personally be doing a couple more special classes on this topic. If you would like free tickets, call 84-48-Income (844.846.2663) and tell them that you read about the class on the Next Week In Stocks website. Hope to see you there!

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.

January 11, 2014: Introduction to Next Week In Stocks

Starting today, we are on two new stations here in the valley:  550 KFYI on Saturdays at 1pm and 1230 KFYI Business on Saturdays at noon. Since we have a number of new listeners, today we talked about the format and philosophy of the show, as well as our thoughts about the market and the world (a recurring theme). Going forward, the plan for the show is to dedicate each segment of the show to a certain topic area, but as always, the overall focus of the show will be on stories and perspectives that you are not hearing elsewhere. To start we will be doing:

  • Segment 1:  What in the world is going on? A discussion of important world events and how they impact you and your money.
  • Segment 2:  What’s happening here? An analysis of the US economy and political scene with a specific focus on how domestic events will impact you and your money.
  • Segment 3:  Potpourri.  A discussion of big picture trading and investing ideas. In this segment we will also answer your questions on investments, markets or anything else that you send us that we find to be of interest.
  • Segment 4:  Ideas for next week. A look at supply and demand levels for key markets and trading ideas for the following week.

If you would like to submit a question to the show, or to give us feedback, please send an email to:  phoenix@tradingacademy.com.  Also, check out our sister show, “The Right Side Of The Trade” on the following stations:

February 16, 2013: The Future Of The Dollar

Over the last 4 month in Japan, the market is up 32%, but the Yen is down 16%. People sitting in cash, bonds, etc., are getting killed. Why? Because they are starting their 9th round of quantitative easing and cranking up the stimulus machine one more time. Unfortunately, it hasn’t worked so far, and it won’t work now. That said, they don’t know what else to do, so they keep doing the same thing, expecting a different result (I’ve heard that called something before…)

We are heading down the same road. While it probably won’t happen in the next year or so, it will happen and if you are in cash, you will suffer the same fate. Learn how to protect yourself and get some ideas on trading levels for the week…

February 10, 2013: Economic Update

This week we reviewed the latest economic news, with a focus on the CBO report. In just six months (from August to February) they have tripled the size of our projected deficits over the next 10 years, from $2.3T to $6.9T (and I’ll still take the over).They are projecting less than 1.5% GDP growth in 2013 and near 8% unemployment. Sounds like “recovery summer” is finally here! I can’t wait for the State of the Union address so I can hear everyone take credit for this excellent economy so they can justify doing more of the same…

We also looked at some levels and some trades to follow…

February 2, 2013: Complacency Revisited

This week we updated our complacency indicators from last week, and added some new analysis. There is still no fear in the market. This may continue for some time, but it always ends badly. We also spent some time looking at the dollar.
