by Vlad Karpel

Fourth straight day major U.S. indices in the green

Markets are extending their gains following yesterday’s no rate-change decision, notching four straight days major U.S. indices are in the green.

Gold and oil remain on the rise

Gold and oil remain on the rise while treasury notes are in the red today.

Rates cut if China-U.S. uncertainty continues to affect markets

Other than keeping rates unchanged, the biggest news from yesterday’s FOMC came in the form of Powell’s post-meeting presser where it was implied rates would be cut if China-U.S. uncertainty continues to affect markets as well as the removal of the term “patient” from the policy.

Notable earnings reports

Canopy Growth and Red Hat will report earnings after market close today, next week look for FedEx, Micron, and Nike earnings.

SPY buying opportunity near $286

Currently, the SPY is trading at an all-time high and we expect the market to remain between $286-$296. However, we do not see market momentum carrying SPY above $300 level. We encourage our readers to avoid chasing near $296 and look to buy near $286. For reference, the SPY Seasonal Chart is shown below:

Fed Chair Jerome Powell met with the press

After the conclusion of the two-day FOMC meeting yesterday, Fed Chair Jerome Powell met with the press to discuss the no rate change decision, citing low inflation and overall strong employment.

Trump-Xi meeting makes influence on Fed’s decision

Another factor likely influencing the decision is the upcoming G20 meeting in Japan at the end of the month where President Trump and President Xi are set to meet. England and Japan, also holding policy update meeting this week, similarly decided to keep rates unchanged and discussed the current global risk uncertainty.

Oil prices moved up 5% following geopolitical tension in the Middle East where Iran has allegedly shot down U.S. drone flying in its airspace. President Trump has since then called the move “a very big mistake.” Gold futures also rose, up 3%, opposite of a lowering dollar and treasury yields currently in the red. Globally, markets closed in the green in both Asia and Europe. Next week, look for new home sales, GDP revision, core inflation, and personal income data.

Last Chance: More  than double the money in one day

Vlad Karpel took everything that he learned developing technologies for others, combined it with 18 years in groundbreaking fintech experience, and went to work building a brand new stock trading platform.

This time, however, he wasn’t interested in helping to build another platform for others… he wanted to see what he could do himself.

The result? An astonishing to-date returns of 1,275%. He even saw a 121.43% gain in a single day.

He was so impressed by the results that he wanted to make it available to other investors like him.
