The FREE Investment Newsletter That Really Works!
It's St. Patrick's day and today we've posted our free investment newsletter a day ahead of schedule. In today's edition, we're discussing the upcoming 2018 elections and if the big social media platforms are going to play games with them. I have a strong hunch that they are, and it could get quite interesting.
Then in the market commentary, we show you all the chart of the DOW, and the perfect "triangle cone" it has been bouncing up and down inside of. At some point the cone point becomes so narrow that "something's gotta give" and we'll either break out, or break down. Which is it? Well give the letter a read, because we talk about it in there!
Good evening all, the latest edition of our free investment newsletter is now on the site. Today we're discussing the market volatility and if it is really all related to the tariffs, or Mr. Cohn leaving or Mr. Tillerson leaving or if it is a function of the market itself. Yes there's a world of news out there, too much of it really. There is no shortage of topics we could discuss.
For instance the Central banks of the world now own 44% of all global GDP. That's pretty interesting. Or we could chat about the proposed 60 billion in tariffs against the Chinese. Again, there's a world of things to talk about. But in this issue, we started with the China tariff idea. Are we really threatening them? Give it a read, and I'll share my opinion.
The March 10 edition of our free investment newsletter is up, and today we're talking about long term holds. After the bull market run up of the last 9 years, is it still okay to go long for the "long term" hold, or is it best to now play the short term game, since we're long overdue for a good shake out.
Granted we had a 10% correction in February and that was the first one in over 2 years. But the question is, is that it? Can we merrily buy the market and expect another 4, 5 or 6 years of up? Or is the market signaling that it's getting tired and maybe it's time to trade sideways for a while?
We discuss all that plus a mention of Trump meeting with Kim Jun Un, and of course the tariff situation. So please give it a read.
They needed a big event and they got one. They came up with a really diabolical plan and I have to give them credit for it. Use the brainwashed children to plead to the politicians to ban guns. It's hard for any politician to stand up to school children that are asking them if they'd take "blood money" from the NRA.
Today's general commentary is about the full court press attack on gun owners. This is the biggest and best planned one I've seen in my 40 years of monitoring this stuff. They're going "all in" on this one. If you're a gun owner, you'd best be following along closely here, this is big.
In the market section, we discuss the wicked chop the market's been in, and the 300 and 400 point swings it's doing. Generally chop like that tends to portray a market willing to change direction. Since it's been going up for 9 years, is this signalling a top? We talk about that.
Give it a read, it's good stuff.
Hello all, the Sunday edition of the free investing newsletter is now posted and this time we're talking about the push back to the NRA that the liberal left has created. Companies are severing ties with the NRA, in hopes of appeasing the snowflakes running around the country doing sit in's. Well, it's the wrong thing for them to do, and we discuss why in this letter.
Then of course we plead guilty to blowing it on Friday, because we thought that like Wednesday and Thursday, if the market gained 300 points it might slide back and give them up. Well, instead they trotted out some Fed heads to tell everyone that the Fed's would be quick to respond to any softness, with....wait for it.... MORE QE.
Yeah, really QE. From the same lunatics that told us they're ready to work off their balance sheets. Give it a read, it's pretty good stuff.
When ever Uncle Sam, or any regulating body wants to "get you" all they have to do is find the Choke points and they can cut you off. With cryptocurrencies, the IRS has realized it can go to the bitcoin exchanges and track who's buying if they've made profits. With guns, there's no central exchanges, so what are the lunatic left proposing? they want Visa and Mastercard to stop letting people buy guns, ammo and accessories with their credit cards.
There it is. The Choke point.
Yes there's been another high profile shooting and unless you live on a remote Island, you've heard about it. Supposedly some nut walked into a school, and used an AR 15 to mow down 17 people and injure others. Obviously a very sad time in history, and one not to be taken lightly.
So we chat about this shooting in the Newsletter. Was it really as we've been told, or is there more to it? Was this the result of some lone nut, that wanted his 3 days of TV fame? Or was this the perfect patsy to carry out a wicked deed, planned by others? We chat about that and other interesting ideas.
Naturally we also talk about the insane market rise, and the fact that on Friday, ahead of the 3 day weekend, we sold off 2 of our three short term holds and took our profits. Is the run over? Or is it going back to the highs? Could we come in Tuesday to a red market? We chat about that and other ideas. Give it a read, it's worth it.
Hey everyone, today's free newsletter is up and today we're talking about Naked Positions. What's that you ask? It's when you sell a put option, for income. However there's risks involved. If you remember, when you buy a call option or a put option you are buying the "right" but not the obligation to buy a particular stock at a particular price. But, when you SELL an option you are now entering a legally binding obligation to do something if your trade goes against you. that costs money.
So we discuss how they work, how they can be very useful and how to avoid the risks as best as possible. Then of course we talk about the current market, and mention some things we did when the market fell 300+ points Tuesday. Give it a read, it's decent stuff!
In today's free investment newsletter, we discuss the mechanics of the simple call option. We talk about the time value, the intrinsic value, the strike prices and more. So many people have been scared off of trading options, as they've been told that they are incredibly dangerous creatures. Well I'm here to tell you that's a bunch of hooey.
Options trading is not more dangerous than normal stock trading. The only big difference is that with an option, there's only a certain amount of time for that option to work. If you buy a stock and it goes down, you can hold that thing for 5, 10 , 20 years hoping it back up. With an option, what ever you wanted to see happen, has to happen before the "end date" that you've selected.
It's called risk management. If you buy a call option against a stock and the option if fading in price, you have the ability to sell for a small loss and move on. Just like putting a stop on any stock you might trade. So, if you've ever been interested in these things, then by all means, give the letter a read.
In today's free newsletter, we talk about simple options plays. Yes, the call and the put. We like to keep it basic here, and while there are other options strategies, just using simple calls and puts will indeed make you money if you get it right.
So we explain what they are, and how to keep it basic. If you've never traded them, You should give this article a read. Then in the market section, we whine about the fact that we didn't load the boat on Tuesday's "pause" day. why? Because we figured that we'd only get one, and we'd resume going up. Sure enough, we gained 322 DOW points today!
