From Keith Harwood,

First thing’s first – I have a webinar this afternoon discussing the market signal that I think has the most explosive potential out there right now. Make sure you sign up here to get the full picture on this signal.

Now that that’s covered, I’m going to give you a hint and an ETF that you need to watch in preparation for this webinar.

SMH is often a leading indicator of tech stock movement as the Semiconductor ETF.  Semiconductors are used in most technology and are a huge indicator of economic growth.  So, when semiconductors are in demand, it means technology is in demand, which means to me that stocks are likely to firm as a whole.

So, let’s look at SMH:

I see it holding above key moving averages (with a brief dip below the 10-Day Moving Average), and continuing to firm.  There’s no sign that it’s particularly overbought, and on top of it all, the implied volatility (price of options) is getting cheaper and cheaper.  All of these things tend to point to a move higher as investor confidence is clearly growing.  But that move isn’t confirmed quite yet, so I’m still watching for that final signal.

There’s another indicator that I’m watching that can be even more powerful, and it’s the one that will tell me it’s time to buy into this market.  I’ll discuss that in the webinar this afternoon!

The best part is that this idea can be applied to other ETF’s, like QQQ, the NASDAQ 100 ETF.  Since SMH is often a leading indicator for QQQ, I often make trades into QQQ when I see SMH leading the market.  You can see the chart of QQQ here:

While QQQ is also holding up well, it’s slightly lagging the recovery from SMH, signaling a potential entry in case I miss the entry in SMH.

These are the elements of the market that keep me excited to follow the charts every day – finding these opportunities can prove to be very lucrative, and I think we might be setting up something interesting here today.

Nothing is ever guaranteed, of course, so I like to use options to define my risk and add leverage.  And with low implied volatility, options haven’t been much cheaper than this in months.  That’s a potential winning setup if you ask me.

So please go to to review how I traditionally apply technical signals, volatility analysis, and probability analysis to my options trades.  As always, if you have any questions, never hesitate to reach out.

2. TradeWins’ Services are not a solicitation or offer to buy or sell any financial products, and the Services are not intended to provide money management advice or services.

3. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Trading and investing involve substantial risk. Trading on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Other than the refund policy detailed elsewhere, TradeWins does not make any guarantee or other promise as to any results that may be obtained from using the Services. No person subscribing for the Services (“Subscriber”) should make any investment decision without first consulting his or her own personal financial adviser, broker or consultant.

4. You should trade or invest only “risk capital” money you can afford to lose. Trading stocks and stock options involves high risk and you can lose the entire principal amount invested or more.

5. All investments carry risk and all trading decisions made by a person remain the responsibility of that person. There is no guarantee that systems, indicators, or trading signals will result in profits or that they will not produce losses. Subscribers should fully understand all risks associated with any kind of trading or investing before engaging in such activities.

6. Some profit examples are based on hypothetical or simulated trading. This means the trades are not actual trades and instead are hypothetical trades based on real market prices at the time the recommendation is disseminated. No actual money is invested, nor are any trades executed. Hypothetical or simulated performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. Also, the hypothetical results do not include the costs of subscriptions, commissions, or other fees. Because the trades underlying these examples have not actually been executed, the results may understate or overstate the impact of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading services in general are also designed with the benefit of hindsight, which may not be relevant to actual trading. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. TradeWins makes no representations or warranties that any account will or is likely to achieve profits similar to those shown.

7. No representation is being made that you will achieve profits or the same results as any person providing testimonial. No representation is being made that any person providing a testimonial is likely to continue to experience profitable trading after the date on which the testimonial was provided, and in fact the person providing the testimonial may have experienced losses.

8. The author experiences are not typical. The author is an experienced investor and your results will vary depending on risk tolerance, amount of risk capital utilized, size of trading position and other factors. Certain Subscribers may modify the author methods, or modify or ignore the rules or risk parameters, and any such actions are taken entirely at the Subscriber’s own election and for the Subscriber’s own risk.
