When Nuthin’ Isn’t a Cool Hand

Todd spends some time in his course discussing preparation for the day’s trading. One of the key elements of that process is knowing what potentially market-moving news is on tap, and when it will be released. I often trade numbers that are released at 8:30 EDT in the same way that I do Todd’s first […]

Getting Ready for a New Week

Good Evening, Friends. It’s Sunday evening, and although one trading week is of course dependent on all of the preceding weeks, there’s always a sense that Monday brings with it new opportunities and the chance to perform at a higher level. The attempt to trade more skillfully each time a setup presents itself is central to measuring success, […]

USD/CAD; What’s Next?

Since my post this morning was a bit anecdotal, I thought that I’d offer a chart that shows how well the techniques that Todd teaches work across asset classes and timeframes.

Different Timeframes, Different Results

A Variety Pack – SPX, AAPL, CHF

Good evening, Friends. Today was interesting, and tomorrow, which features earnings from AAPL after the close, promises to be even more intriguing. The SPX remains, it appears to me, in an uptrend, but it’s clearly struggling. Good news from AAPL tomorrow would of course help, but for the moment, all we know is that the […]

The More Things Change … Or Do They?

Hi, Friends, here’s hoping that all is going well. It was a little nasty to have the non-farm payrolls number released on a day when cash equities were closed, but it was pretty clear that we were going to have a fairly severe downdraft today. As I look at the daily chart of the SPX, […]
