Trade of the Day: SPDR Gold Shares (GLD)

Oct. 12, 2018, 9:28 am EDT – Today I am recommending a bullish trade on the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE:GLD), an ETF that tracks the price of gold.The market is definitely in a corrective mode right now and, while this week’s pullback is not as severe as the one we saw at the start of the year, there is a chance that stocks could take another leg to the downside before they are able to stabilize. I mentioned previously that the Fed’s interest rate increases are eventually going to cause deleveraging in the marketplace, and the action this week seems to bear that out. More

Trade of the Day: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD)

Oct. 9, 2018, 9:30 am EDT – After a sharp decline at the start of last week, AMD attempted to stage a rally on Wednesday, but it has since given up all of those gains again. With the stock down about 23% from its recent highs, the stock has fallen into a bear market, despite the company’s advantage over the Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC), one of its primary competitors.

Trade of the Day: Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (LPX)

Oct. 8, 2018, 9:30 am EDT – Today I am recommending a bearish trade on the Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (NYSE:LPX), the North American manufacturer of building materials and products. The large-cap industrial stocks of the Dow Jones had been leading the charge last week, partially due to the new trade agreement between the United States, Mexico and Canada, though the index did fall slightly. I’m also still concerned about the trade situation with China, as that country is mostly likely not going to concede to the U.S., at least not anytime in the near future. More

Trade of the Day: Mosaic Company (MOS)

Oct. 5, 2018, 9:49 am EDT – Today, I’m recommending a bullish trade on The Mosaic Company (NYSE:MOS), which produces concentrated phosphate and potash crop nutrients. My indicators are still giving sell signals for the fifth week in a row, which is quite unusual and not a good sign for the bulls. The reason behind those sell signals is that we are in what I would call a split market. Looking at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the ratio of declining issues to advancing issues was 3:1, meaning that for every three stocks moving lower, there was only one stock moving higher.

Trade of the Day: Lennar Corporation (LEN)

Oct. 1, 2018, 9:33 am EDT – Today, I’m recommending a bearish trade on Lennar Corporation (NYSE:LEN), a real estate financial services provider. Two areas of the market that have been hit hard lately are the auto sector, including the big names such as Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) and General Motors Company (NYSE:GM), and the real estate sector, largely due to rising interest rates.

Trade of the Day: Marathon Oil Corporation (MRO)

Sep. 28, 2018, 9:15 am EDT – Today I’m recommending a bullish trade on Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE:MRO). Commodities are actually one area of the market that is presenting a real bargain right now, and as we enter October, a month in which several significant market crashes have occurred in the past, there is the potential that we could see some negative action.
