LTG GoldRock: Wisdom not Information

You’ve mostly likely heard of this phrase before but it’s just so true.

Information is everywhere. Wisdom is not. I was very fortunate some years ago to be introduced to a trader who was 30 years my senior and he took me under his wing and effectively taught me everything I now know.

There are only handful of people I trust when it comes to unbiased financial market wisdom and one of those people is Art Cashin.

Art is the Senior Floor Trader for UBS Bank at the New York Stock Exchange and his wisdom and daily commentary on CNBC is outstanding. I encourage my traders to listen to him every day and I am encouraging you today to take a moment and watch the short 3 minute video below.

Let me trade live in front of you this Monday evening at 8pm AEDST and show you the strategic unemotional way we go about making higher returns on investment trading the biggest market in the world. Plus, I will give you my next big currency trade.

US Durable Goods misses estimates. Dow down 290 points.

The roller coaster continues on Wall street with the Dow Jones erasing 2% of its value in one trading session. Below is a graph that was posted on CNBC today of the roller coaster ride the US index has been on in March.

ltg goldrock reviews Dow Jones

US company earnings season is about to begin when companies listed on the stock market need to deliver their recent company earnings. Companies with export exposure obviously have a direct link to the value of the US Dollar. As the US Dollar rises it makes the cost of their products or services more expensive. Or does it? Perhaps they have lowered the value of their products and services to still remain competitive, as the US Dollar has risen. The market on Wednesday priced in speculation that US company earnings may be hurt by a higher US Dollar and potentially higher interest rates. Earnings season is not upon us yet but Wednesday’s plunge was the markets way of saying. We are concerned.

For a plunge of 2% on the Dow Jones I would have anticipated a bigger move on currencies such as the Euro and Pound however both remained reasonably subdued. The AUD and NZD both lost between 75 and 100 ticks and a move back even lower in my view is likely in the coming weeks.

The stock index moves in the US were bigger than those felt in Europe with the FTSE 100 closing down only 0.4% compared to the 2% plunge on the Dow Jones. If you’ve found it all a bit confusing in the past three weeks you are not alone. Traders on Wall Street as well as major institutions and hedge funds won’t be making profits with these whip saw like trading days.

Friday’s Hot Market Tip. Conquering Fear and Greed

Learn to Trade with LTG GoldRock

Learn to Trade Forex with the LTG GoldRock Trading Team every Monday at 8pm AEDST.

Emotion plays a huge part in financial markets, it’s effectively what the collective market is doing. Playing a game of fear and greed or chicken if you like.

The biggest mistake you can make if you have a losing trade is to try and get even with the market and get your money back. Amateur traders often will have a losing trade and all of a sudden they are back in the market again trading the opposite direction trying to jump on the next trend to get their money back. Inevitably they blow up every time as they are trading purely on emotion. Every trader does this at least once or twice in their career. The losing traders do it consistently.

Professionals trade strategically, with purpose, with a plan and remain calm under all circumstances. Increased emotion leads to poor judgement and increased error making which in turn means you drain your account.

Let me trade live in front of you this Monday evening at 8pm AEDST and show you the strategic unemotional way we go about making higher returns on investment trading the biggest market in the world. Plus, I will give you my next big currency trade.

We are now less than 24 hours away from when the US Federal Reserve will release its latest policy statement and this month unlike other months Janet Yellen the Chair of the US Fed will hold a press conference 30 minutes after the release of the official statement.

I have been reminding traders for months that talk of higher interest rates by the US Fed is likely going to spook the stock market and put fireworks under the US Dollar. The fireworks haven’t happened yet but the matches have been lit and traders are only waiting for the US Fed’s “Go” before lighting these markets up. Yellen will release the statement at 5am AEDT Thursday morning and her press conference will begin 30 minutes later at 5.30am AEDT.

As you will have seen we are ready to profit on what she says. If you missed Monday or Tuesday night’s live training here are two links that will take you to the recordings so you can view them in your own time.

LTG GoldRock US Dollar News

The US Dollar and its continued rise against all major currencies will again be the centre of attention this week simply because Thursday is when the US Fed issues its latest March policy statement and Janet Yellen the US Fed Chair will hold a press conference to answer questions relating to the statement.

The US Fed Chair does not hold a press conference every month but March is scheduled to be one of the months this year Janet Yellen will answer questions on the US economy. The question that will no doubt dominate the press conference and most likely be asked in numerous different ways by multiple journo’s is: “When are you going to lift interest rates?”

LTG GoldRock Hot Market Tip. It’s going lower!

Commodity prices took a caning on Tuesday and so did the Aussie Dollar dropping to a new 2015 low of 0.7606. There have been some bargain hunters around at the 0.76 trying to buy the Aussie Dollar however you’d be a brave soul to buy the AUD in the face of this US Dollar surge. Big money is holding what is called “short” positions with us and profiting as it falls.

Simply put the Aussie Dollar is destined to go lower and we will profit from knowing what economic data is coming and entering our trades based on this information. It’s how professionals make so much money and is also how we can help you increase your returns.

Economic data that will impact the AUD today includes Westpac Consumer Confidence data due out at 10.30am, Investment Lending at 11.30am and China Retail Sales at 4.30pm.

US markets shake off rate hike fears.

Monday saw Asian markets mostly lower on the back of a weak lead from Wall St on Friday. The Aussie and Kiwi Dollars continued their slide south as the US Dollar strengthened after 295,000 jobs were created in February stoking fears the US Fed may be about to raise interest rates.

However when US markets opened they rallied with the Dow Jones finishing up 138 points shaking off the interest rate hike fears that gripped the US market on Friday. There was very little in the way of economic data on Monday however as the week progresses the data to be released will increase, but nothing for the USA until Thursday.

In other market news.

  • Apple is set to join the Dow Jones Index making it one of the top 30 companies in the US by market capitalisation. Apple’s share price is notoriously volatile and many suggest that Apple’s move into the top 30 stock index will increase the daily volatility on the Dow Jones Index.

US jobs data beats all estimates. US Dollar skyrockets.

The US Dollar took off like a rocket on Friday when the latest monthly US jobs report was released. The official Non Farm Payrolls report showed the US added 295,000 jobs in the month of February, which was 55,000 more than the market expected.

The Dow Jones Index dropped 1.5% on the news as traders priced in a US Fed rate hike sooner rather than later. If you cast your mind back only a week or so ago Janet Yellen said that Jobs, Inflation and Energy costs were the Fed’s biggest concerns and I am certain jobs would have been at the top of the list. If there was a “ready” box to check on a US Fed committee interest rate form, that box for “jobs” would have been ticked on Friday.

The official US unemployment rate fell to 5.5% and surely gives the US Fed a green light to lift interest rates around midyear. This should continue to see the US Dollar rise against currencies such as the AUD, NZD, EUR and JPY.

Art Cashin says the US Fed must take out the word “patient” from its statement as the Fed may be boxing itself into a corner with its patient approach whilst jobs and other economic data continues to improve and point more and more towards “rate hikes are needed.”
