1:05 p.m. EST Catalyst

Markets have stablized today after two VERY ugly days. The S&P 500 has lost 6.6% from its high in September. Earlier this year we saw the S&P 500 lose almost 10% in an April to late May correction. The point is simple, we are getting oversold here. ~more~

#038: Mon 11/5/2012
Current Thinking

We have two open postions currently. This morning Transocean (RIG) reported better earnings and the stock is up over 5%. This is helping our call position in Baker Hughes (BHI) and we think the whole oilfield equipment sector could begin to move. Our second position is in calls on the S&P 500 via SPY. We own December 143 Calls and feel that this should get the benefit of any relief rally off the election results. ~more~

#037: Thu 11/1/2012
Nice Start To The Month

We did not jump on this advance today as tomorrow could see a reversal if we have weak job numbers. Instead we will wait to get the numbers and then react. The S&P 500 was up 1.09% today. Impressive start and if we get positive numbers there could be some more upside tomorrow. ~more~

Nasty Day

Back on October 10th, we bought calls on SPY and six days later took a nice 25.70% gain. Today we are in a similar but different setup. We are similar in that the 6 Day RSI is now back below 30. But we have yet to rebound back above 30. We need this to happen if we are going to establish new bullish bets. Back in May, the 6 Day RSI dropped under 30 but took two weeks to move above 30. In the meantime, stocks got hammered. ~more~

#030: Mon 10/22/2012
Markets Are Choppy

Last week I was on the road in Chicago Wednesday to Friday seeing some clients and prospects. The week started off in strong fashion rallying into Thursday before Google (GOOG) prematurely released earnings and stocks faded. Friday saw stocks post their worst day since June. Our bullish bet in Baker Hughes was hit by this action and a weaker than expected earnings release. Today stock were weak but did rally the last hour to close with small losses. This action has a bias bent to it. The market has been unable to move higher since peaking on September 14th, one day after QE3 was announced. ~more~

Reason # 4 To Be Investing In Our Universe

Land grabs occur when industrialized nations or corporations acquire farmland in the Third World. These deals—sometimes as leases, sometimes as outright purchases—are usually made with corrupt local officials, at terms exceedingly unfavorable to the local population. The purchasers then grow food on the land, and export it out. ~more~

Reason # 3 To Be Investing In Our Universe

Political turmoil can cripple the production of resources on a national level. This is most obvious in times of war. Of course, we aren’t (yet) at the point where there are large-scale wars over specific resources ex Iraq and Afghanistan over the past ten years. But some sociopolitical analysts are predicting that overt wars for food, water, and other resources will be a growing phenomenon over the next century. ~more~

Current Pullback On The S&P 500

The S&P 500 has had one heck of a move from the June low moving from 1266.74 to a recent high of 1474.51. Currently, the S&P 500 is at 1441.59. This represents a pullback on a closing basis of -1.65%. Along the way to 1475.51 there have been 3 moves that saw a closing basis pullback close to 3%. As long as we stay around 3%, this current environment is simply a case of two steps forward and one step backward. Why do we care about the S&P 500 if we are trading in the energy and commodity markets? Because they set the tone of the overall atmosphere for stocks. ~more~

Shot On A Half Volley

One of the greatest squash players of all time is Victor Niederhoffer. He also happens to be a famous hedge fund manager who worked for George Soros as well as on his own. Although Niederhoffer seems to have trouble every four to five years with risk, his returns have been outsized over time both on the up and downside. Nonetheless, the man is a genius on the squash court and in the markets. He is well worth reading anything he weighs in on and I recommend his book “The Education of A Speculator”. ~more~
