Where do we go from here? We have some interesting movement going on in the market with tech testing a breakout, while the overall market is testing a break down. Financials are in terrible position after multiple bank failures, while numerous tech firms look a lot better with lower interest rates. So now what?
Let’s just take a look at the most important market elements to see if we can get a signal. First, we should look at SPY, the S&P 500 ETF:
It’s evident that the market is testing a recent low point, but will it recover on the heels of the Tech rally? A week ago, I’d have told you we might be in for a rough run to test the lows of 2022, but just as the market looked on the brink of disaster, it started to recover.
Let’s look next at QQQ, the NASDAQ 100 ETF:
Testing a breakout is key, but it has to confirm that breakout to get me truly excited. For that, we need to get above the February high, which we are very close to.
Finally, let’s look at the VIX for an indication of the market fear:
The VIX seems to be telling us that in spite of the tech rally and overall market recovery, we should be afraid. That’s not necessarily a good sign. So, for now, I’ll monitor the market and get into the stocks that aren’t fear-driven. We are in a stock-picker’s market, and that’s not a bad place to be if you have a good system for picking stocks. I outline my favorite stocks in my Outlier Watch List – the stocks listed have explosive potential with cheap options leverage, so they can be a great bargain if you use options. Plus, when you use options, the risk is defined – so you know exactly what you can lose if it all goes wrong and the market really is setting up for an economic recession!

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.
