Bitcoin is warming up for new highs

During the last month a fallen angel has started to rise again: Bitcoin. What actually is the fuel behind the move? As usual with Bitcoin, nobody knows for sure. One month ago the Bitcoin exchange Gemini of the Winklevoss twins came alive. Perhaps this is seen by the market as a precursor of their planned […]

Volkswagen sinks to the ashes – for now

Look at this chart of the crashing VW phoenix. They are already expecting more than 6 billion Euros in direct damages, aka fines. VW managed to build intelligent cars. No, they are not as intelligent as the self-driving one from Google. Their intelligence is just sufficient to understand when they are in a test situation. […]

Oil rally or brief reversal?

The oil crash just took a breather with an abrupt two day uptrend. Will it go further? Hard to say, as the depressing factors are still in place. Reasons for this short-term rocket are most likely news about an encouraging U.S. growth and the relaxation of international equity markets. There are also reports of an […]

The oil crash goes ahead

Oil just made new lows as predicted. Time to get on board of a fine trend if you haven’t done so already. The oil market saw new price lows during the last days. There seem to be two main reasons for that: Iran closed the nuclear deal with world powers and is now on the […]

The German Bunds crash

German Bunds are the short of a lifetime, according to Bill Gross, the bond guru. He seems to have called the very low on April 21 (red circle) of the 10yr Bunds as seen here in the daily yield chart. Did he? Or did he rather influence the market with his opinion? In any case, […]

The oil crash

One of the most remarkable trends of the last months is the deep dive of oil. Oil is tanking! One reason is the US and its ability to exploit previously unprofitable repositories. Fracking has led to an oil glut, temporarily at least. The US just became a net exporter of oil after decades of being […]

How low will the euro go?

What is Zen trading? It is trading done the simple way and that means looking for the right trend and finding the right entry spot. Here we have one, the decline of the euro. While the fundamental reason for this steep decline is the current monetary policy of the ECB called quantitative easing, psychological reasons […]

The trend scalper

This site is about true or real trends. There are two types of chart formations that look like trends. Both are trends, but only for the chartist. Beyond that they are different. One has a reason, a driving force, and the other got just created by random market forces. If a trend has emerged just […]

The Zen trader

Our standard method, the trend trading system, is all about trends. It even concentrates on the best of them. Trading like a Zen master is almost the opposite of trend riding. Essentially the Zen trader is going to bottom fish for the momentum stock. Sounds really like Zen… The fishing grounds are the small cap […]

The art of trend trading

Trend trading is easy. Wrong. It looks only to be easy in hindsight. If done right, it can be very lucrative. You can also do it wrong and then it is the opposite. One basic element for all kinds of trend trading is the stop loss. The advanced trend trader tries to enter the steepest […]

Forex trading is exciting

So exciting that many do it for fun and not for making money. If you want more than fun, you should have a system, though. Very quickly you will arrive at the conclusion that something in this “game” plays against you. Right, and this something is nothing less than the world’s biggest banks. This alone […]

Are ETFs the better stocks?

No, but ETFs are technically stocks and that is their greatest beauty. If you know how to handle stocks, you are also fine with ETFs. Due to the fact that under the hood they are funds, the risk of “bankruptcy” of a single ETF is minimal. There is the risk of financial failure somewhere down […]

Many commodity and futures traders go broke

This is a provoking start, but it has an avoidable reason. Most beginners in these markets, and some are lifelong beginners, don’t have a clue about money management. Derivative markets offer a high leverage often coupled with tight spreads. Essentially everything is in place to become rich. You just need to discipline yourself to the […]
