Mid-Market Update for 1/27/2017

How ‘Bout Them Bulls/ Profit Alert (TSEM)

11:35am (EST)

The bulls are trying to put the finishes touches on a beautiful week with the market hitting fresh record highs. Today’s tight action and yesterday’s slightly mixed session remains to be seen if they are on a temporary rest, or, a possible picking point for the the bears is coming up.

It has certainly been a long winter here in my home town and the bears have been in hibernation since early November. February is always a tricky time to trade the market and at some point, they might start to nibble.

It has been another profitable week and I’m doing my best to get us off to an awesome yearly start, just like last January. I mentioned next month could get bumpy and it starts next week and why I bring it up. However, the good news is my early weekend research is showing possible continued momentum into mid-February.

My hectic schedule is finally slowing and I will be able to return a lot of calls this weekend and early next week. I want everyone to know I thank you for your support from my transition away fro It was the worst business deal I ever made and why I will never go back into the shark tank. Enough said.

I have also offered the opportunity of nearly 60 days to ensure any prior memberships and that time period ends next week. I will honor prior subscriptions but please try to give us an invoice and time frame. Please email us first to ensure any past problems are resolved.

I have also had to heavily discount a quality newsletter more than usual because of the rock bottom prices other newsletters are bombarding you with. Just like penny stocks, cheap prices mean lousy newsletters. Also, remember, I get no revenue on prior memberships and let’s just say my other party did not fulfill their contractual obligations for nearly six-figures.

For subscribers with memberships expiring next month, or in March/ April, I urge you to take advantage of the current discounts because my prices won’t be this cheap ever again. It feels incredible to be 100% in control of MomentumOptions again and I have reassembled much of my old team together. I will include the codes at the bottom for those that want to upgrade. We can add the remaining time that you currently have along with your new subscription! These prices expire next Tuesday, January 31st.

Okay, off my soapbox. Heading into the second half of trading, the Dow is dipping 22 points to 20,078 while the S&P 500 is slipping 3 points to 2,293. The Nasdaq is down 3 points to 5,652 and the Russell 2000 is declining 8 points to 1,367.

I have updated our current trades along with a Profit Alert for (TSEM). I could also have a New Trade ahead of the closing bell. However, if you don’t hear from me by 3pm (EST), have a great and safe weekend! Go grab a Starbuck’s (SBUX) coffee if you bought some put options yesterday and tip the drink mixologist well. More on Monday.

***Please remember I have a no refund policy as both newsletters are for serious traders only. I do not raise prices during win streaks and I have NEVER had a losing year. If you want cheaper quality newsletters from traders and publishers that do not risk their own money then I wish you the best of luck with your trading endeavors. Cheaper priced newsletters are cheap for a reason and these are the best deals I can offer, so please remember this. Unlike other newsletters, I don’t pay a bunch of zombies that do nothing with traders that know nothing about the market but I do pay fees for administration and Tech/ research help.
