The Gamestop rip crystalizes a new era in the stock market. Six lessons

Rumors fly as WallStreetBets sparks a run on shorts The balance of power in stock markets has shifted. This week's drama in the shares of GameStop (GME) is one of the best signs yet that the power of retail traders can't be doubted. Shares of the struggling video game retailer were halted after a 69% rally at one point and finished the day up 51%. The stock was in a tug-of-war between shortsellers Melvin Capital and Citron Research against an army of small retail accounts at WallStreetBets. Melvin manages $12.5 billion but is reportedly down 15% just three weeks into the year in part due to bets against GameStop. The Reddit community is growing at a sensational pace with trading memes and posts about sensational gains trading short-dated options. This episode is a major win for the community, where users were showing off huge gains on $60 call options in GME that expired Friday. They traded as low as $0.03 at the start of trading on Friday and hit a high of $17 -- a 566x return or enough to turn a $200 bet into $113,000. What makes the community especially seductive are stories of people don't just that and screenshots that show incredible gains: Some thoughts on where it all leads: 1) Who would be short anything? There were rumors during the day that Melvin Capital was bust. Obviously that's a wild exaggeration but it's a warning to everyone, everywhere that it's not time to be short anything, no matter the valuation. There's no limit to how much money you can lose in a short and when so many stocks are going up, why would anyone want to be short anyway? Citron's now somehow made itself a target and that neutralizes the firms biggest (only?) weapon: generating a negative headline buzz. 2) Watch out for anything with heavy short interest One of the things that attracted bets on GME was that so many shares were sold short. The equivalent of the entire float was held short and the success of this squeeze marks a new frontier for WallStreetBets. Previous big wins had been in extremely thin securities like Kodak but GME was a $1.25B company at the start of the year. That's certainly Apple but it's significant. Rather than the big name stocks, look for this army of options traders to dabble in securities around that size but have some name recognition. That's the formula. 3) This might just be getting started Every tale of success is a recruiting tool for new users, who invariably join the army. The subreddit now has 2m users, up from about 400,000 at the start of 2019. The numbers are now climbing rapidly and as they grow, so will the clout and power of its userbase. This chart is a sure bet to go parabolic: Consider that Robinhood as 15m users in the US alone and that CNBC's Jim Cramer is now talking about WallStreetBets daily you can see that this could grow much, much larger. 4) The power of mystique This was a notable battle because it featured a big hedge fund and a very well-known short seller against WallStreetBets. It's clear who won. I think we're at the point where the mere whisper of a post at WSB is enough to spook shorts. 5) Regulation won't come soon Pump-and-dump schemes are notoriously tough to stop and the disorganized nature of WSB makes it almost impossible to stop. Something about all of this feels wrong but it's so deep into grey area that I don't see anything stopping it. Probably the only risk is that Reddit itself goes after it. Ultimately I expect some troubles to creep in, especially with the mods. They have too much power and the potential for abuse is too tempting. With all that, bigger problems will emerge but I think it's now entering some kind of golden age for the next 1-3 years. It's going to be wild. 6) This helps the broader market, on the margin Greed is contagious. This is a good sign that we're in speculative bubble but I think it's still just getting started. The Federal Reserve has pinned rates to zero and margin loans are ultra-cheap and easy to get. There's nothing like the thought of someone turning $200 into $100,000 overnight to make people greedy.

GBPUSD and failing to make a higher high rule

Victor Sperandeo's rule The GBPUSD fulfils one of the golden rules used by the legendary trader right now. Here it is:  In an uptrend, if a higher high is made but fails to carry through, and then prices drop below the previous high, then the trend is apt to reverse. The converse is true for downtrends.  Nice little rule and 1.3740 circa is the 'I'm wrong' level. Previous high broken as price retreats lower.    For bank trade ideas, check out eFX Plus

What will 2021 day trading activity look like?

Geopolitics does and will impact markets in 2021 2020 was like a big blur, racked with indecision, uncertainty, and turmoil. The financial markets weathered the storm in the US, but what about day trading in 2021? In the broader scheme of things, 2020 was an anomaly. A pandemic comes around once every 50 years on average, with the last 9 pandemics since 1700 taking place in the following years: 1729, 1732, 1781, 1830, 1833, 1889, 1918, 1957, and 1968. History tends to repeat itself, and if this is the case, many of us will not face another pandemic in our lifetime. As far as trading activity goes, one cannot ignore the importance of patterns, trends, and cyclical movements. Hindsight is 2020, and yet there is little clarity we can gain from the year that was. The world as we know it has already taken on a different complexion. The cantankerous presidency of Donald J. Trump has come and gone, and a new era is firmly upon us. A measured leadership approach under the Presidency of Joseph R. Biden has arrived. The new commander in chief is entrenched in his position with complete party control over the House, the Senate, and the Oval Office. Politics is deeply interwoven into the fabric of economic activity. As a day trader, it's important to understand the opposing ideals of Trump vs Biden in relation to trading activity. For one thing, the types of trades you make will change in 2021. During the Trump era, energy stocks such as natural gas, WTI crude oil, coal, et al were expected to hit stratospheric heights, yet they failed despite strong demand, steady supply, low costs, and the pandemic. These types of stocks are likely to flounder under the presidency of Joe Biden, given his focus on green energy a.k.a. alternative energy and clean energy. With that in mind, it is likely that companies such as Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) will continue to reach new highs as government regulations, incentives, and other tax breaks filter into eco-friendly industries. Stocks Likely to Stabilize in 2021 Forecasting stock price performance is an unenviable vocation, and one which rarely hits the mark. Given the sheer number of uncontrollable variables that can influence pricing, it is disingenuous to suggest which stocks may flounder in which stocks may fly. However, the first half of 2021 is likely to be characterised by a continuation of restrictions, vaccinations, and combating new strains of the novel coronavirus. This will impact specific industries more than others, notably airlines, cruise ships, travel and tourism. For now, those stocks are considered hold options, or potential buy options with a medium-term to long-term perspective. In Q1 2020, we are seeing a slow but steady appreciation in the value of cruise line stocks, led in part by Carnival Corporation (ECL), Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH), and Royal Caribbean Group (RCL). Day traders will not gain much traction with the stocks presently, given the status quo. However, there has been a strengthening in the valuations of these companies, through massive government stimulus. Airline stocks - always a risky proposition - are also shaping up for take-off later in 2021. The likes of Delta Air Lines (DAL), American Airlines Group (AAL), United Airlines Holdings (UAL), and Southwest Airlines (LUV) are also medium to long-term prospects. Day traders have the added advantage of going long - bullish - or going short - bearish - on stock options. The clearest indicators of momentum are found in the stock market capitalizations. As evidence of the current bull run in full flight, the 1-year performance of all US indices is strongly positive. The strongest performing indices are the NASDAQ composite index +43.14%, followed by the S&P 500 index +15.73%, and the New York Stock Exchange composite index +6.26%. European stocks are largely negative over the past 1 year, with only the German DAX 30 index showing signs of anaemic growth at +2.75%. Further afield, Asian markets are also ripe for the picking. The strongest performing Asian markets are the CSI 300 index +30.83% over 1 year, followed by the MSCI AC Asia Pacific index +21.01%, and the Nikkei 225 index +18.43%. Whether any of these numbers hold moving into Q2 2021 and beyond is up for debate. It all depends on how the global vaccination rollout goes, and the threats posed by mutations (second and third deadly strains of the virus) on the populace. For now, it's a period of rebuilding and consolidation, as businesses slowly pick up the pieces and grind into gear. Day traders needn't sit on the sidelines waiting for business activity to pick up - there is always an abundance of market-related activity taking place. During the worst part of the pandemic in 2020, when entire countries were shutting down and people were furloughed in their droves, a niche group of retail traders emerged on the scene. These largely inexperienced traders bypassed traditional brokerages, middlemen, and fund managers, in favor of going it alone. Many trading platforms experienced a boom, including Robinhood, E*TRADE, StocksToTrade, TD AmeriTrade, Charles Schwab, and others. The sheer number of day traders became significant enough to reach critical mass. This was especially true vis-a-vis low-cost stock options such as penny stocks. These volatile financial instruments typically struggle with liquidity, given the fact that they don't get much media exposure. Yet, they are priced right and accessible to a growing number of first-time day traders. What Options to Look for as a Day Trader in the Financial Markets? Anyone can get lucky sometimes, but traders who consistently generate a favorable ROI are relying on a lot more than luck to get results. Truthfully these traders understand how to day trade for a living because they're doing it; they're living the dream. Behind-the-scenes, lots of hard work goes into becoming a successful trader. Tremendous time and effort are invested in stocks trading education to better understand the factors impacting the financial markets. Various options are available to traders, including stocks, commodities, indices, forex, and even crypto. Day traders typically trade stocks, including blue-chip stocks, regular stocks, and penny stocks. These equities follow basic economic principles, with supply and demand determining pricing. When there is excess demand, prices rise, when there is excess supply, prices fall. In between, these stocks are trying to establish an equilibrium price. As a day trader, you will be presented with thousands of options, many of which are difficult to evaluate with any degree of accuracy. This is particularly true of penny stocks which are traded OTC, or as pink sheets. They don't have much media exposure, and struggle to generate interest from investors. Many penny stocks - stocks which trade under $5 - fly under the radar, and are often just concept companies with no proven track record. These penny stocks present a good starting point for day traders, because they are affordable, volatile, and can be traded long or short accordingly. Several reputable trading platforms allow low minimum balances. This is ideal for new day traders. Your success as a day trader hinges upon your ability to learn from your trades. Winning trades and losing trades are par for the course. Your ratio of wins to losses is less important than the actual value of your wins compared to those of your losses. There are many instances of traders having 60% loss rates, and yet coming out with a strong ROI, because their winning trades outperformed their losing trades by a long margin. It really is a numbers game. Getting into the game is the tough part. New trading platforms need to be understood, stop loss orders, take profit orders, stock screening tools, economic indicators, technical analysis, fundamental analysis, paper trading, and other important technical elements must be understood. It is a process of ongoing learning that separates successful day traders from unsuccessful day traders. Even when you are enjoying a hot streak, you should be learning from your success. Markets are dynamic. The only constant is change. Traders are encouraged to soak up as much information as possible, to guard against complacency. Pros and Cons of Day Trading Pros of day trading Enrich your mind & bank balanceBe at the top of your game and love lifeEnjoy greater freedom, with flexible work hoursWork from anywhere there is an Internet connection Cons of day trading Difficult to masterRisk of loss of capitalTremendous investment of time and funds With all that said, day trading is certainly a professional vocation worth pursuing if you are serious about putting in the time, effort, and financing. All day traders experience wins and losses in their trading activity. It's inevitable. Nobody wins all the time. The objective therefore is to make educated decisions about the future price movements of the underlying financial instruments. When your assessments hold true, the trades will reward you. There is no tincture you can drink to become an expert trader; it's lots of hard work, learning, and practice that goes into it. The objective is to make incremental gains over the long-term. That's how you build a strong foundation as a day trader.  Stay the course, and you will reap the rewards over time. For bank trade ideas, check out eFX Plus

Understanding the gaps in forex trading

What are gaps in the forex market and how to trade them A 'gap' in the market happens when the opening price is higher than the last session's high price, known as gapping up, or lower than the last session's low price, called gapping down. These gaps can be essential in trading as there are traders believing that gaps are typically filled quite fast. And this provides a chance for forex traders to make a possible profit because the possible short-term direction of the price can be successfully predicted. The gap serves as the one being filled when the current market price returns to enter the previous session's price range. For instance, on Monday, if stock A trades between a low of $10 and a high of $11, it would open on Tuesday at $12; the gap will be filled when the prices hit $11 again. It is not hard to determine a price gap visually form a price chart in the trading platform. In the Forex Market The forex market is open from Monday morning to Friday night. And the only exception for this is some major public holidays. Thus, opportunities for gaps happen during the weekends. But for stock markets that close overnight, a price gap can occur on any day. Several traders seek gaps in forex markets daily by deeming trading only open in business hours of the countries linked to the currency. Above all, remember that in forex, price gaps will build up when the market opens in Asia on Monday or after very major holidays when forex brokers stop their price feeds - like Christmas Day and New Year's Day. How Often Gap Happens After establishing that price gaps only occur in forex after a weekend, those reading this are probably wondering how often they happen. To explain it, let's look at the historical price data of the two major forex currency pairs - EUR/USD and USD/JPY -, which together account for over half of the total forex trading by volume. Also, they are the cheapest currency pairs to trade. Within January 2001 to May 2020, the EUR/USD currency pair made 204 price gaps, while the USD/JPY currency pair made 215. As nearly all forex price gaps happen during weekends, and as there were 1,008 weeks covered by the time period mention, the price gap formed after the weekend, about 20% of the time in forex. With that, it indicates that traders will likely see a price gap in a currency pair on average of about once every five weeks. After knowing that, it is worth seeing how gaps are before building a gap trading system that can show how to trade a price gap. The distance in pips from this week's starting price to the high of the last week's range, in case of a gap up, or from the low of the last week's range to this week's opening price, in case of a gap down, measures the size of a forex weekend price gap. Trading the Gap Determining weekend price gaps in forex currency pairs and entering trades that aim for the gap to be filled before Tuesday's closing has been a very simple and profitable trading strategy. The said strategy could trade with only using the weekly timeframe. Typically, price gaps in the EUR/USD and USD/CHF currency pairs are filled fast. Then, price gaps in other currency pairs become filled quickly if the gap is under 75 pips in size. The possibility of a weekend price gap filling quickly is stronger when the predicted fill is in the direction of the long-term trend. If traders entered a trade as soon as the new week opens with the formation of a gap, they could exploit the chances of weekend price gaps to fill in forex. Traders need to set the take profit for the previous week's range, while the stop loss must never be larger compared to the amount of pips aimed by the take profit level. Another method to use within a forex gap trading strategy is to observe the price action on shorter time frames. After that, enter a trade in the direction of the fill through a tighter stop loss when the price action signals a move is likely underway. For bank trade ideas, check out eFX Plus

The fees and costs of forex brokers

What you need to know about what your broker charges you Each forex broker charges fees in one form or another. Then, there are trading costs linked to every trade placed. Most traders typically ignore the overall cost per trade that can make a massive difference to the entire outcome of a portfolio. As the most common cost is via spreads, other fees and costs are still applicable and must not be neglected. Transparent brokers would always be upfront in their fees and list them either on the website, trading platform with every trade ticket, or both. Direct Trading Costs Direct trading costs consist of spreads, commissions, swap rates, etc. Not all costs apply to all trades, and it all depends on the kind of asset traded - if they traded on a margin and the duration and the duration of every trade. The broker needs to mention all costs included in every trade. Also, transparent brokers list them in their trading conditions and give examples of how they incur and calculate costs. Then, trading costs can be found inside the trading platform - especially if the broker offers a proprietary trading platform. They also provide traders with calculators, letting them calculate the cost of every trade before placing it. Spreads Spreads are the most usual cost associated with trade and refer to the difference between the bid and ask price. In addition to that, spreads are the main income source for brokers who live from the mark-up on raw spreads. Raw spreads can become as low as 0.0 pips in the EUR/USD -the most liquid currency pair that carries the lowest spread. Everything over this level is the mark-up that the broker charges. Commissions Several accounts come with spreads as low as 0.0 pips on the EUR/USD. However, the broker charges a commission per lot. Typically, accounts charging commissions are ECN accounts that run a no-dealing desk execution. Here, traders get the raw spreads, or near to it. Then, in return, the broker charges a commission. Aside from that, they charge commissions on equity trades, and different assets, such as ETFs, ETC's, bonds, and more, will carry a commission charge. Then, to get the complete details on which assets carry a commission, traders must either consult the asset directory given by their broker or get the information straight from the trading platform. Transparent brokers will list the full contract specifications on their website as proprietary trading platforms list all the details in every deal ticket. Volume discounts are often provided to an account that carries commissions. Swap Rates Swap rates or rollover rates apply to every position held overnight. Swap rates happen because of the interest rate differences in the base currency and the quote currency. Also, brokers will list the way this rate is calculated, and there is a Swap Long and a Swap Short rate. Swap rates will either become credited from or debited to the account balance, depending if the traders take a long or short position. Many brokers fail to forward favorable swap rates to traders.

The person who refines his edge, and stands out for his many gifts, can follow a trading strategy that is consistent and works to his advantage. "The strategy sounds like a routine that is executed daily, weekly or monthly." Overall, when you look at a marketplace of buying and selling, things can be perceived to be very complicated. This is why building a strategy is like creating an edge. Your edge over others, using what you have to your advantage. A trading edge is a way of approach through which you can gain an advantage over other players in the market. Capable are those who can identify the risks involved when trading, follow the rules of evaluating an asset to understand its price changes, and using specific trading tools, which will compose a strategy aimed at achieving the desired result. Understanding and rationalizing exactly what's happening in the entire global market system is always an advantage; it is vital, for creating a strategy and building a process that will give you an advantage. "Smart traders are not just those who know it, but those who also can develop their trading edge through their strategies."

A trading strategy is a technique used by traders to determine whether to buy or sell an asset at a particular time. Follow this strategy which will give you an advantage in the long run and create a trading strategy that is consistent and works to that advantage. But always keep in mind that, every strategy could go through its losing periods. A strategy that works today may not necessarily work tomorrow. Beginner Trading Strategies - Scalping: Is one of the most popular strategies through which a trader tries to earn a series of small profits, observing and chasing small price changes with the ultimate goal of collecting a significant number of successful transactions. - Price Action: Price actions are formations created by the movements of asset prices over a certain period of time. Through technical analysis, traders can calculate the price action to make their decisions. - Swing Trading: The style of trading that aims to capture short-to-medium-term gains in an asset over a few days - Crossover: It's the point on the trading chart at which the price of a security and a technical index lines intersect, or when two indicators cross themselves and are used to estimate the performance of a financial instrument as upcoming changes in trend can be predicted as reverses or breakouts. *Risk Warning: CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 79.65% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs.

What is a bond yield curve?

Trading 101 You may have seen and read report that talk about the 'yield curve'. You may know that the phrase has something to do with bonds, but otherwise perhaps you shrugged your shoulders and moved on. Understanding why investors look at the yield curve is one part of the puzzle that investors look at when charting the financial landscape. This short article will help introduce you to the bond yield curve if this is a new topic for you. What are bonds?Bonds are simply loans.The maturity of a bond concerns the length of the loan. A bond with just a 1 year maturity, is a loan for 1 year. Bonds are issued by Governments an companies and they come with different maturities (different lengths). They can be 1 year, 2 year, 3 year and do forth.The general rule is that the longer the bond the greater the risk. This is common sense. It is more risky to lend money for 30 years than it is for 3 months. There are far more uncertainties involved.The yield curve.Investors often plot the different maturity lengths of bonds and the different yields offered onto a graph (see the example below). The horizontal axis (left to right) in the charts below represent the length of the time of the bond's maturity.The chart goes from the shortest at the left to the longest on the right. The vertical axis (up and down) in the charts represent the yield offered. The chart goes from the lowest yield at the bottom to the highest yield at the top.Below is a normal yield curveThe longer dated bonds offer a higher yield than the shorter dated bonds which is what you would expect in a normal situation. For an introduction on the shape of different yield curves see a helpful one page description and intro by JP Morgan here.

BofA January fund manager survey reveals that long Bitcoin is the most crowded trade

Bitcoin beats out long tech and short dollar trades Allocation to stocks at 2-year highAllocation to stocks and commodities at 10-year highCorrection catalysts are peak growth on vaccine, virus, or peak liquidityCash levels at the lowest sine March 2013Long Bitcoin is the most crowded trade, followed by long tech and then short USDI reckon this reflects the amount of bullishness in terms of investor risk-taking behaviour. While Bitcoin may have been the flavour of the week/month, the standout point to me is that cash levels have dropped to the lowest in almost 8 years. That screams that there is just too much money lying around and it has to be going somewhere. If not Bitcoin, then surely something else when the conditions are ripe for the taking as investors are keen to pile on the cash. For bank trade ideas, check out eFX Plus
