Commercials Recap By, Chuck Whitman

  For a quick recap on Commercials, review the summary points below:     Every successful product exists because it has a legitimate business purpose for the commercial firms that utilize it.

Commercials are the participant for whom the market primarily exists. Each market usually has a commercial user who is a natural long and a commercial user who is a natural short. The easy way to …

Is Inflation Transitory and Can the S&P 500 Hold the Line? By, D. R. Barton, Jr.

Many folks in the U.S. are returning to summer travel schedules. And like so, so many other things – the cost of travel has skyrocketed. In late May of 2019 (before COVID), my wife and I spent a week on the Gulf Coast of Florida for a little R&R. We rented a car at the Tampa airport, for a week, at a total cost of $150.82 (no additional insurances purchased). Earlier this week, I made the exact same reservation. I rented the same car class, at the same airport, on …

The Nasdaq Trails – Now What? by, D. R. Barton, Jr.

    This week, let’s look at something short and sweet. The Nasdaq has been the go-to for overachievement in recent decades. Yes, it has been an up and down ride, especially if you go all the back to the Dot.com bubble, but the last 12 years have been largely a one-way ride: The line presented in this chart illustrates the price of the Nasdaq ETF (QQQ) divided by the price of the S&P 500 ETF (SPY). If the line is heading up, the QQQ is outperforming; if it’s going …

Excellent Opportunity in BLOK…by the Numbers Monday, February 22nd by, Ken Long

He then applied several of his standard trade concepts – Hybrid Frog, Minimum Manageable Risk Box (MMRB), SSC, Kata2, and a Sniper Exit to capture a nice move.

The Game Stops: This Time It’s…Well — Like Every Other Time by, D. R. Barton, Jr.

    We were told in 1999, that “this time, it’s different”. We were told…the internet was changing everything. And we were told that valuing companies with no earnings and small or no revenues was going to last forever. That madness of crowd’s mindset drove a whole index up 10x in a few short years:   And then it came back down to earth. For anyone who’s been trading or investing, you know that wasn’t the end of the story — the NASDAQ has been a pretty good (!) place …
