    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio remains under a strong BUY signal from 1/2/13. There remains absolutely zero indications, via price action, that there is anything to do but ride the trend higher here.

    Despite the constant discussions of what is wrong with this rally and how extreme it is (we will go over that below), stocks continue to breakout from solid consolidation patterns with other stocks either trending more »

    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio remains under strong BUY signals across the board. While we still hate the relationship between volume and price, we realize it simply does not matter in a world where printing currency is the modus operandi. With that being the case, price is our master and price remains in a strong uptrend.

    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio remains under BUY signals across the board. There is nothing still to do or think too much about as the trend higher is smooth and has come under very little pressure minus two minor distribution days in the Nasdaq Composite.

    Overall, many traders believe that it is time for us to take a rest or pullback. However, traders have been thinking this for a while more »

    The Big Wave Trading portfolios all remain under a strong BUY signal as stocks tacked on more gains the past week with volume coming in higher than the previous week. Overall, it was another strong week and nothing out there is currently of concern on our radar.

    Despite the low VIX, the high amount of bulls in the Investors Intelligence survey, and lack of extremely strong volume when we do more »

    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio remains under a BUY condition across the board. This past week was further confirmation on the current strong technical condition of the overall market. While it is not perfect and we can argue about volume on the days we do rally, it is what it is and that is a strong current rally favoring all sectors and market cap size across the board.

    The Big Wave Trading Model  returned to a BUY signal across the board, following the resolve of the Fiscal Cliff. The gap up was powerful and very strong. The strength was broad, volume was well above average, and breakouts were everywhere. On top of that, the price action on Thursday and Friday has been tight and many stocks that did not breakout on Wednesday broke out on Thursday and Friday more »

    After a quick trip back into the NEUTRAL zone, our models all switched to BUY on Monday the 17th. Unlike the previous BUY signal in which no action was taken, this BUY signal was actionable. The move on Monday came with strong above average volume on all four major market indexes. All four indexes also produced pocket pivot point buy signals on the same day. On top of that, banks more »

    It was a very uncorrelated market the past week with the Nasdaq falling 1%, the DJIA rising 1%, and the Russell 2000 coming in flat. Overall, nothing has changed in our model and we remain under an overall NEUTRAL condition.

    Despite being under a current NEUTRAL position, we definitely have a long bias currently in big-cap NYSE stocks. Low P/E stocks that pay a nice dividend that show some more »

    The Big Wave Trading portfolio remains under a NEUTRAL signal, despite the strong gains this past week in the stock market. The gains from last week were very strong but it came from a very oversold condition and was straight up in a V-shaped formation backed by zero accumulation.

    While we are used to the stock market rallying on zero volume following heavy volume selloffs, we are at the same more »

    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio switched from a successful SELL signal back to a NEUTRAL signal the past week as the DJIA, SP500, and Russell 2000 retook their 200 day moving averages. The Nasdaq remains below its respective 200 day moving average but that is due to AAPL and we took notice of last Friday’s very bullish intraday reversal on AAPL coming from very oversold conditions. Overall, we see more »

    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio remains under a SELL signal on the SP500, Nasdaq, Russell 2000, and DJIA. The NYSE switched to BUY signal yesterday and subsequently re-switched to a NEUTRAL signal by the close of today’s trading.

    Two words can sum up this week of trading: random, ugly. Another word many traders were using this week was confusing. While we remained under the 50 day moving average on more »

    The Big Wave Trading portfolio remains under a SELL signal that was triggered on 10/19/12.

    It was another down week for the overall stock market and it was another above average weekly volume sell off for the Nasdaq composite. This now brings the total of above average volume weeks on the downside this year to 6 vs. 0 up weeks on above average volume. Despite the constant distribution more »

    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio is currently under a NEUTRAL condition. The model switched from BUY to NEUTRAL on Tuesday due to the Nasdaq closing below the 50 day moving average on average volume.

    Our model expected this switch to occur after Apple (AAPL) closed below the 50 day moving average on strong volume on Friday October 5th. On September 24th Apple began to sell off on above average volume more »

    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio remains under a BUY signal from August 3rd, following the past week’s market pullback. The pullback was overall orderly with only Tuesday being a session of concern. The fact that there were many stocks that made big moves following that session and that the market did not follow through immediately with the selling shows that the uptrend remains intact and in solid shape.

    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio continues to be under a BUY signal that was generated on August 3rd. The past week was another overall solid week with solid intraday price action outside of Friday. Another positive was the Nasdaq having two up sessions on volume well above average, continuing the trend from the previous week.

    We continue to believe that this uptrend can last longer based on the overall public more »

    The Big Wave Trading portfolio remains under a BUY signal, generated on August 3rd, as the market continues to move higher on well above average volume. On Thursday, for the first time during this rally, we saw the indexes, ETFs, leveraged ETFs, inverse ETFs, and leveraged inverse ETFs all move in the right direction on well above average volume. This is the confirmation we need to start to increase positions more »

    The Big Wave Trading portfolio remains under a BUY condition with strong confirmation of the original signal coming on Thursday when every single important stock market index we track broke out convincingly on enough volume to qualify the breakout as strong. The tight intraday action on Friday with a HOD close in the NYSE and SP500 confirm the move on Thursday.

    This strong move is coming on the back of more »

    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio remains under a BUY signal from 8/3/12, following the past week in the stock market. There was not much that went on this week that changed anything from the previous BWT Portfolio update. The only significant event this week occurred on Friday with Gold, Silver, and Platinum ripping higher following Ben Bernanke’s speech. A long position in GLD 150 calls two days more »

    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio remains under a weak BUY signal, following a week of constructive price action in the overall market. We continue to keep positions relatively small as volume continues to be completely absent in the stock market right now. Traders are still on vacation and there has not been a single what we deem “perfect” or “near perfect” signal since the BUY signal has been triggered. We more »

    By Joshua Hayes - August 17, 2012 | Tickers: AVD, BVSN, CLGX, MAGS, PHMD, PRXI, STX, VRNM

    The Big Wave Trading model switched to a BUY signal on Thursday. This signal was generated thanks basically to the performance of earnings winners, the Relative Strength of the Russell 2000, and a volume surge on the Nasdaq. There was no confirmation with volume in any other index or ETF.

    Sadly, overall, there continues to be a lack of any momentum in the market following a stock price breakout. The more »
