Market Direction Outlook For July 31 2014 - Bias Is Still Lower

The market direction outlook for Wednesday was for stocks to move lower. The short-term outlook which goes beyond one day, is for the SPX to probably try to retest 1956. Today for example the SPX fell down to 1962.42 before pushing back up. The stronger GDP numbers, I think, were in the cards. The employment numbers have continually showed strength building for more than a few weeks now. While the GDP coming in at 4% was beyond what most expected, myself included, it continues to show what the employment numbers have been telling / Read More

 
Become A Better Investor - Staying Flexible and Profitable Using Signals - ADM Stock

Archer Daniels Midland is one of the largest food processing companies in the world. At the start of July the company announced the acquisition of WILD Flavors, a global market leader in natural flavoring ingredients. The acquisition may work well for Archer Daniels Midland. Over most of the past two years I have done primarily stock trading with Archer Daniels Midland Stock but the recent acquisition has pushed up the volatility in the stock as investors speculate over whether the stock is overvalued, undervalued or fairly valued depending on the success of the / Read More

 
61% Chance Fed Will Raise Rates in June 2015

The Federal Reserve wrapped up their two-day meeting on the back of strong GDP numbers which surprised every analyst estimates and rising employment numbers that are pointing to employment that is back to the levels seen in 2007 and possibly even 2006.

While short-term interest rate futures barely moved after the meeting, CME FedWatch which tracks rate-hike expectations by plotting fed funds futures contracts show that the market is assigning a 61 percent chance that the first Fed rate hike will be / Read More

The TSX opened higher and pushed to 15,506.09 but then gave the rally back in the afternoon to close at 15,445.22 up just 1.33 on the day.

Market Direction Outlook For July 30 2014 - Lower

The market direction outlook for Tuesday was a repeat of the 50/50 outlook. Basically a 50 % chance of a slightly higher close and a 50% chance of a slightly lower close. Once again though there were other events that the market had to take into account. The strongest was perhaps the geopolitical happenings with President Obama putting in place still more sanctions, the EU sanctions and the continued fighting in Gaza. The market for some time has been ignoring most geopolitical events but since the downing of the Malaysian passenger airliner, the / Read More

 
Market Direction Intraday Comments for July 29 2014 - SeeSaw

The market direction outlook Tuesday was pretty well unchanged from Monday at a 50/50 outlook. Basically very sideways with only a slight chance of either a small positive or negative close. There are of course many reasons for this kind of day but the overbought environment coupled with the market struggling at new highs is one of the big reasons for what is turning out to be a see-saw day. Other stats from today include the highest consumer confidence numbers since 2007. But regular readers of Fullyinformed.com know what I think of consumer / Read More

Market Direction Outlook For July 29 2014 - 50 / 50 - Unchanged

The market direction outlook for Monday was a 50/50 outlook. Basically a 50 % chance of a slightly higher close and a 50% chance of a slightly lower close. The market direction started off under pressure from the beginning of the day primarily due to the EU accord to put in place sanctions against Russia over their involvement in the Ukraine.
