Crazy FOMC Day

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) followed through with plans to raise federal funds interest rates by 75 basis points, and the market didn’t like it. After a few wild moves in both directions on Wednesday after the announcement, the downside was chosen and the market ended on the lows. I think it is clear … Read more

Breaking Trend Lines

This month, it is notable that the monthly squeeze histogram in the S&P 500 (SPY) has moved negative. In addition to that, the SPY has broken two trend lines and a price support area. The trend continues to the downside, and it’s just a matter of what path the SPY will take on its way … Read more

Repeat Patterns

Hey Market Pilot, As we head into a new month, we are seeing similar patterns set up from recent history in the SPY. Oftentimes, we talk about this pattern in a bullish sense. Since we’re in a bear market, we’re observing a pattern where price bounces toward the daily 50 simple moving average (SMA) and … Read more

Powell Killed Bulls

Hey Market Pilot, Friday was a massive day for the markets. Federal Reserve (Fed) Chairman Jerome Powell was no dove during his speech to kick off the day. He referenced history and said the Fed needs to get inflation under control and will keep tightening. Let’s take a look at how the announcement kicked off … Read more

Webinar Replay: Catch Pops & Drops While Stocks Deflate

Right now many traders only see “gloom and doom” in the market… And this year has been extremely challenging. But I want to instead focus on where I’m finding opportunities. Because despite what you hear lately, there’s actually a silver lining for active traders. For example, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) increased 9.1% recently and … Read more
