7 trade idea triggers


Recommended Posts

Get this via email from another broker but thought it was a good copy/paste. Thought it was worth a share and could give a few trade ideas. Also should we get a 'quick trade ideas' section running again? Or maybe @JamesIG can sort a competition or something based on new trade ideas? ;)

  • Optimism is fading as the US’s power struggle with China and Iran continues. By Wednesday morning, markets across the globe were feeling deflated as investors signalled a lack of appetite for the current level of political risk. In the US, the Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq closed on Tuesday down 0.6%, 1.1% and 1.8% respectively since the start of the week, while China’s Shanghai Composite had dropped 1.6% by its close on Wednesday. In Europe, the picture is slightly better, with the FTSE 100 remaining flat overall. Germany’s DAX is one of the few major markets to post a positive result: on Wednesday morning it spiked to €12,290.46, up 0.13% from the start of the week.
  • Disney shares to enter new magical era? Some analysts view the stock’s latest holding pattern as a signal to buy, anticipating a further breakout after the company’s shares reached a record-high of $143 last week. Meanwhile, the company’s streaming strategy is gaining steam as Hulu, which Disney owns 60% of, has racked up 3.8m US subscribers in the year to date – outpacing competitor Netflix. Can Disney shares retest last week's all-time high? 
  • Micron surprises investors with latest results. Shares rallied as much as 10% in after-hours trading after the chipmaker delivered adjusted EPS of $1.05 and revenues of $4.79bn last quarter – both exceeding consensus forecasts (although still representing a 39% year-on-year revenue drop). Overall, its shares are down 25.7% since its year-to-date high of $43.99 and 0.2% since the start of the year. Some analysts now view Micron as a buy opportunity – with BAML saying they see value in the company’s low valuation.
  • UK high streets still have their champions. While the high-profile turnaround struggles of Debenhams and New Look have been well-documented of late, stocks in sectors like sports retail and value apparel are bucking the trend with strong year-to-date growth. The 3 stocks bucking UK retail's spiralling decline.
  • Match Group enters buying territory. After a dip during the latter half of last week, the parent of dating app Tinder rebounded sharply, rising 7% to 71.48 through Monday. That puts the stock 5% below its flat-base buy point of $75.38, according to Investor’s Business Daily. Match’s stock has had a meteoric 58% rise year-to-date, powered by strong metrics around the Tinder app’s usage and plans to tap Asia’s legion of smartphone users.
  • FedEx reports estimates-beating results. On Tuesday, FedEx announced earnings of $5.01 per share based on revenues of $17.81bn, beating consensus EPS estimates by $0.20. The results do not seem to be enough to reverse the logistics company’s share price trajectory, though, which continued to fall in after-hours trading. On Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported that FedEx had been slashing prices to support its Express service – which also cut ties with Amazon earlier this month – sending the share value down 4.9% by Tuesday’s close.
  • Evercore switches tune on Spotify. Evercore ISI analysts downgraded the Swedish music streaming company from in-line to underperform, cutting its price target by $15 to $110, citing scepticism over the ability to meet Wall Street estimates. Spotify’s stock closed down 1% to $145.69 on Monday. Also on Monday Spotify was revealed to have been exaggerating the amount of “app tax” it pays on Apple’s App Store; Spotify’s CEO Daniel Ek has complained that Apple requires Spotify to pay a 30% tax on purchases made through Apple’s payment system; Apple responded by saying Spotify has never paid more than 15%.

  • Nike’s earnings missed expectations for the first time since 2012. The sneaker giant’s earnings fell short of Wall Street estimates, coming in at $0.62 for the quarter and $2.49 for the year, compared to the $0.66 and $2.55 expected, respectively. Analysts remain bullish on the stock, though, with Morgan Stanley’s Lauren Cassel saying ‘NKE remains our top pick’. 
  • Uber hits an all-time high. On Friday, the ride-hailing platform’s shares closed at $46.38, up 7% from Thursday’s open. The rally, which marks the first time Uber’s share price has closed above its IPO price of $45, followed news that the company plans to expand its services into West Africa. It remains to be seen if Uber can continue this momentum; its Q1 results, released on 3 June, showed net losses had more than doubled from $478m in 2018 to $1.01bn.

    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
    • I played around with it (created two plots of the smallest viable K-32 size). While I'm farming this tiny amount now I've stopped plotting until pooling is introduced - since existing plots aren't going to be compatible with pooling. The cost of wearing out SSDs is high. You're effectively buying (via SSD wear) lottery tickets (the plots) with a chance of winning a lottery (by farming). Without pooling its unlikely small players will win. The "estimated time to win" is based on current network space that will probably rise at a very quick rate reducing your chance of winning exponentially.  Unless you're farming petabytes, using the rule of large numbers to take out the lottery element, its not worth the time of smaller farmers imho. It may be worthwhile when they introduce pooling.
    • Yeah, you can trade whenever you want.
