(Monday – Sep 14, 2015)

A weekly forecast and investment ideas covering a range of technical and fundamental analysis securities to assist you in when to buy and when to sell a specific security.

This is informational only and is not meant as a recommendation to buy or sell any security, but a guide to start the research process before making any stock purchase or a sell recommendation.

The information provided is based on timely fundamental, technical analysis or both. Technical analysis can change hour by hour; tick by tick so keep that in mind as to the timeliness of the information especially if you are reading this days or even weeks later.

The market trend as of this past Friday Sep 11 was Mildly Bullish , the price trend has moved Downward though the 20 day moving average and  20 has moved below the 50 day average .

The primary trend is Up over the past five day, the longer trend (two weeks) is Down. MACD turned Positive. YTD the S&P 500 is negative at -3.34 %.

The markets are trading down this morning, with the FOMC meeting later this week I suggest we take a wait and see position before making any long trades. However I do like the possibility of selling some puts (options) if the premiums are attractive enough.

MACD is a simple momentum indicator. Buy signals occur when the black line crosses over the red line. Sell signals happen when the black line crosses beneath the red line.

3 types of analysis.

Technical analysis is the study of past market prices and trading volume. It will keep you trading with the market, rather than against it.

Fundamental analysis is the study of business quality and value. It will help you pinpoint great businesses at great prices… and avoid bad businesses at inflated prices.

Sentiment analysis is the study of the opinions of market participants. You can use it to make sure you’re not standing with the crowd just as it’s about to get dumped overboard.

Market Watch

Trailing Stop Loss

Don’t forget to place a trailing stop loss on all your positions as you make the purchases. Depending on your risk tolerance place a stop loss anywhere between 10 and 25 percent for mid to large cap stocks, ETF’s and mutual funds. Consider even large percentage for small cap stocks including mutual funds and ETFs.

Bull of the Day – Sep 11

Ohr Pharma (OHRP)

The last earnings estimate revision for the current year saw EPS loss shrink from $1.18 to $1.06. What’s been a big shot in the arm has been a couple of huge earnings beats over the last two quarters. Last quarter a 10 cent beat followed up on the 5 cent beat we saw in Q1
