If You Are Not A Short Term Trader You Won't Survive

Posted by Nicholas Santiago Wednesday, February 10, 2016, 11:26AM ET

It is amazing to think how smart everyone can look when stock markets are rallying higher everyday. Since March 2009, the S&P 500 Index has surged higher by 1468 points. As you may know, the S&P 500 Index peaked out in May 2015 at 2134.72. It is safe to say that this rally from the 2009 lows was one of the biggest price advances ever in stock market history. Many traders and investors give the credit of the stock rally to the Federal Reserve Bank's easy monetary policy. This reason is certainly one of the primary reasons why the stock markets surged higher. Other reason for the enormous advance in stock prices were due to stock buybacks, corporate consolidation, and bankruptcy restructuring.

It is safe to say that when the stock markets were rallying higher it was almost easy to make money. Simply put, if you picked a stock that went lower the overall market would help to rescue the equity from the decline. In other words, the stock rally would bail out a bad stock trade. That is why people love bull markets. This is a normal condition of easy monetary policy. Now these markets are not so forgiving. Perhaps you have noticed what happens to stocks when the company misses earnings, they get slaughtered. Just look at stocks such as LinkedIn Corporation (NYSE:LNKD), or Tableau Software, Inc. (NYSE:DATA) recently. These stocks have lost half of their market capitalization after reporting poor earnings. Other companies have been sold off sharply just for initiating poor guidance. The point is that markets are now different and will show no mercy on companies when the news is bad.

So how can traders and investors make money at this time? Simply put, the buy and hold method does not work in bear bear markets. Remember the old market adage, markets take the stairs up and the elevator down. In other words, stocks decline much quicker in bear markets. The only way to make money in this type of environment is to understand and use charts. You must simply understand the technicals. The days of listening to P/E ratios, book value, earnings per share, and the rest of the fundamental jargon is over. You must simply be a short term trader that buys solid technical support levels and sells major resistance levels. At this time, the path of least resistance is downward. Nearly every trading session we see huge price swings in the major stock indexes and this how you can make money in this market. If you are going to try and use the Warren Buffett (buy and hold) approach you better hope that you live a long long time because it could be a while before some of these stocks see their 2015 highs again. Simply put, if you are not a short term trader you won't survive in these markets.

The United States Oil Fund LP (ETF) (NYSEARCA:USO) fell sharply today as more economic fear swooped in to freak investors out. As it fell, it hit a major level that only technical traders would see. This level should blow your mind because it is exactly where oil went to and why it bounced and could continue to bounce. Note the chart below and be amazed. Anyone not reading the charts should learn how. There are millions in profit available to those that know this stuff.

Is QE-4 Around The Corner?

Posted by Nicholas Santiago Tuesday, February 09, 2016, 11:40AM ET

As we all know, the Federal Reserve raised the fed funds rate by 25 basis points in December 2015. Since that quarter point rate increase the stock markets around the world have been tumbling lower. Volatility has surged higher as central banks around the world scramble to figure out there next move. In the past, jawboning by the Federal Reserve has been used to calm the markets, but this time many traders and investors believe that the Federal Reserve has its hands tied. Stocks now seem to come under severe selling pressure on a daily basis.

Recently, the 10-year U.S. Treasury Note yield has plunged to 1.72%. This is signaling that investors would prefer to be in U.S. Treasuries instead of stocks. Oil prices have plunged to less than $30.00 a barrel signaling weak global demand and a stronger U.S. Dollar. What can stop these markets from deflating further? In the past, the answer to a deflating market has been lower interest rates and add lots of liquidity (quantitative easing) to the system. These days the large European banks such as Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE:DB), Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE:CS), Banco Santander, S.A. (SAN), and UBS Group AG (NYSE:UBS) are making new multi-year lows on a daily basis. In fact, most of these Euro bank stocks are making new all-time lows. Something is wrong when leading financial stocks have this type of price action.

Problems in Asia have been increasing on a daily basis. The Nikkei 225 Index has dropped by nearly 4000 points since early December. The Shanghai Composite Index has plunged by nearly 50.0 percent since its June 2015 high. What are these central banks going to do to help stabilize these markets?

In late 2008, the central banks around the world staged a very coordinated effort to inflate the stock markets around the world. Can they do this again? After all, the Peoples Bank of China, the Bank of Japan, and the European Central Bank are all doing there own version of quantitative easing right now. So what is wrong? Why are markets tumbling? You see, the Federal Reserve is going to have to join the money printing party once again. The Fed is the missing piece of the liquidity puzzle. After all, most all commodities are priced in U.S. Dollars. The strong U.S. Dollar is one of the primary reason for the weak oil and commodity prices that we are seeing at this time.

Everyone should forget further rate increases by the Federal Reserve. The fed is going to need to cut interest rates and eventually start another QE program to get these markets up around the world. Maybe this time the central bank to the world (Federal Reserve) won't call it quantitative easing, but it's going to need to do something if it wants these markets to stop deflating. In my humble opinion, QE-4 is around the corner.

Financial Crisis 2.0: Is It Here?

Posted by Gareth Soloway Monday, February 08, 2016, 12:42PM ET

The markets are collapsing again. A 300 point down day on the Dow Jones Industrial Average is almost common place. The NASDAQ is down 1,000 points from its highs just recently. This is almost a 20% correction. What is the cause? Most investors would say it is oil, however, that is not the only problem striking fear into institutional investors and traders. The main problem is a derivative of oil. Ultimately, what is freaking so many intelligent investors out is the exposure many banks have to tons of debt in the energy sector. Remember how in 2006-7 the housing market would never collapse? Well many big players felt the same way about oil, allowing energy companies like Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK) to borrow billions of Dollars. Oil has collapsed and financial stocks are not in a good place.


The biggest worry for the market is European bank stocks. Names like Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE:DB) are down over 50% in the last six months. Even names like Goldman Sachs Group Inc (NYSE:GS) and JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) are tanking in sympathy. Oil needs to head up quickly or this market will be in more trouble with a potential financial crisis 2.0 on its hands.
