- Trading setups for bullsAs usual on the International Outlook blog, we focus only technical analysis. This week we mostly have some trading setups for bulls, although there is at least one short in the mix.
- Wall Street betsPerhaps not as exciting or even nearly as recklessly speculative as the trades that come from the now notorious Wall Street bets subreddit, but still some trade ideas on U.S. listed equities. Unlike the Wall Street bets subreddit, we want to remind and encourage you to make use of very strict risk management. Always use a stop loss and always ensure that you are not taking more exposure that what you can reasonably afford. That said, here are some of our offshore trade ideas for this week.
- A dose of patience neededThe fast paced world out there always tries to get us to take action immediately. There is a sense of urgency that is ever pressing. You have to buy this useless trinked right now! You have to act now to make money on the stock market! Cryptocurrencies are exploding and you must act immediately lest you want to 'enjoy staying poor'. This is all garbage. The reality is that there is a lot of patience needed if you want to make any sustainable, long-term progress. The same is true with trading. The patience needed to wait for the right trades, at the right levels is something that almost never talked about. So although there are a few decent setups this week, there are a few markets on which we have to respect the patience needed and wait for a more clear setup.
