ConstitutionGood morning.
Last year introduced investors to the concept of a “gamma squeeze.”  Traders buying call options on markets caused market makers to buy stocks as a hedge, which created a positive feedback loop.  That trade also works in reverse, where market makers need to short stocks seeing a rise in put option trading.
That’s part of the weakness in the tech space lately.  However, about one-third of all gamma trades will be gone after the close of trading today.  That could lead to a relief rally next week, or at least an end to the tough market grind of the past few weeks.

Have you been adding to any tech holdings lately following this drop?

Hit reply and let us know where you’re looking for bargains now.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

The Fed loaned $9 trillion to Wall Street trading houses, without naming names.  We still don’t know what caused the repo loan crisis, or who might still be in trouble… [Read Here]

I thinkGood Morning.
What a great ending to the day!  Maybe central bank printing does cure the coronavirus after all.
It was good to see a panic bid in the market that has been so rare during this furious sell-off.  This may have legs to carry some of your underwater positions back into the black.  Hurray!

It took the S&P 500 only six sessions to fall into correction territory, the fastest downfall in history.  The Dow and the S&P 500 each fell 4.4%…

Fear surrounding the global spread of the coronavirus, and its resulting economic impact, led to the worst week for U.S. stocks since the 2008 financial crisis…  🙁

Positive Approach

A little girl walked daily to and from school.  Though the weather that morning was question-able and clouds were forming, she made her daily trip to school.  As the afternoon progress-ed, the winds whipped up, along with thunder and lightning.

The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school, and she herself feared that the electrical storm might harm her child.

Following the roar of thunder, lightning, through the sky and full of concern, the mother quickly got in her car and drove along the route to her child school.

As she did so, she saw her little girl walking along, but at each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up and smile.  Another and another were to follow quickly, each with the little girl stopping, looking up and smiling.

Finally, the mother called over to her child and asked, “What are you doing?”

The child answered, smiling, “God just keeps taking pictures of me.” 😉

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
