Stock Symbol Salad

Let’s face it – you haven’t been watching your diet over the holidays and those jeans are starting to get a bit tight around the belt line. Don’t despair – Dr. Mole is here to help – we’re going to get that muffin top back into shape for spring in no time. In addition to a rigorous tea bag lifting routine I am also prescribing you a nutritious diet starting with today’s stock symbol salad. Go ahead – dig in!

Let’s start with the E-Mini which has been scaring the children a little in the past two days. However most notably it dropped all the way to its daily NLSL and then bounced back. Great first test and that [...]

Wednesday Morning Briefing

Welcome to our morning briefing. Here we are reviewing short term setups ahead of the NYSE opening bell. If you are a scalper or swing trader then these setups may be of interest to you. As usual keep in mind that these are short term setups although they could be used as early entries for more longer term positions.

Let’s kick things off with a shameless plug: I thought some of you non-subscribers would appreciate a snapshot of the action in the Zero indicator over the past two sessions. The Mole signals (on the right Zero Lite panel) have been calling the swings rather nicely, which is precisely the reason why I’m working on a pertinent black box system [...]
