Bo Yoder 3D Apex Trading Update

Written by

So many traders and investors get lost looking for “the next big win”, and forget that there is a LOT of profit potential in the smaller reliable and repeatable setups. Last week, I did not see anything on the macro level that interested me, but there was an attractive short term opportunity that I highlighted…

Don’t get hot and cross – it’s Easter!

Written by

The more I looked through the price action of the last two weeks, the more I am reminded not to look for ‘something that’s not there’. It seems that consolidation abounds and while there have been some significant moves within ranges, it really doesn’t pay to be trading more on hope than logic! The one…

Pale Blue Chips – VectorVest update by Dr David Paul

Written by

In both SA and the United Kingdom I have been very impressed with the Unisearch (in the conservative folder) called Pale Blue Chips. It does not shoot the lights out, but the search finds great shares that are growing earnings safely, paying a dividend and growing that dividend. Since the start of the year the…

I would bend over backwards to be flexible!

Written by

It’s been an interesting week. And one that sends a strong message to all traders, but moreso to those in the retail sector who are trying to understand ‘what’s what’! Certainly one to teach the great lesson of flexibility. Not a week to be married to a trade, or even a perceived trend, it would…

FTSE at pivot point

Written by

With no surprises from the B0E of an unchanged base interest rate and holding steady at £375bn of asset re purchase, we find the FTSE at a real key pivot point. On the daily charts we have hit 6687.15 witch is a key point of attraction and the 50% Fibonacci level for the bulls to…

Cable could hit 1.70 this year…

Written by

The GBP/USD pair has seen the pound strengthen in the past few days with it challenging the 1.68 figure once more. I have long held the belief that we should see cable hitting 1.70 at some point this year and it’s possible it may be gearing up for a move to that level.   The…

The Russell 2000 trade update

Written by

The Russell 2000 trade is now down approximately 7% since the trade began, and has behaved itself every step of the way.  Each price wave had plenty of power and therefore was predictable as you saw. Now, I am seeing the bearish power begin to fail, and that loss of energy leads me to believe…

USD/JPY pair remain bullish

Written by

The USD/JPY pair has had a solid run from just below 102 to just over 104 in the past week. The break above the early March highs is a good sign for yet further strength. The chart shows how price pushed through the 50dma (black line) on its way to these highs made this week.…

FTSE’s outlook conservatively bullish

Written by

The last time we discussed the FTSE 100 it was trading just above the 6,500 points area, a level that had been confirmed as a medium-term support. I said that the key resistance area seemed to be around the 6,650 level and a break above this should be followed by more gains towards the 6,700…
