Video - Weekend Market Summary - 11/1/08

It's been a while since I've made a video - then again, it's been a while since I've seen a market that looked like it might be worth trading in terms of individual stocks. Check out the video - I talk about the major indices, what I expect in the short-term (next week) and the longer-term (the next two months) and both longs and shorts I am watching. Hope it is beneficial. Feel free to let me know what you think. Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend. Time for me to watch some football.

Hi Mac, I can not access you vedio. What software do I need? Do you have a written version? Thanks, Elena!

Mac said...

Sorry, Elena, I really don't know why it wouldn't work. I tried it on both IE and Firefox and it worked fine. Is it going to the pop-up window? You need Flash player but that is already installed on most computers. Keep trying and let me know if you have any luck.

Enjoying your blog and the recent video.

I'm new to trading and to Telechart. Your blog is a great help to me.

Thanks Brad - you picked a tough time to start trading, but if you can survive this market, you can certainly have success when things get a little easier in time (at least let's hope that happens). Good luck.

Mac, thank you for your effort, i have been reading this blog for a long time, it´s a great help for me. I have been trading for about 3 years, after about 2,5 years I´m starting to be profitable, I know that this blog has helped me a lot. Thank you ones more. :-) Coudy, Europe.

Thanks Coudy - glad to hear it helps. It does take a while to get profitable - you have to make a lot of mistakes before you learn to avoid those mistakes. Keep at it and I'm sure you'll be successful. Good luck.

Hello Mac,

I am having problems watching the video like Elana as well. Pop up window opens but never fully loads. Can it be uploaded to iTunes or YouTube? Thanks for your work and help with this blog. Great Stuff.

I don't know why it wouldn't load - here is a direct link if you won't to try and download it to play on your computer outside of the internet. The quality would be too diminished to put on Youtube - the best way I have found is to do the pop-up window.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your ideas. I definately learned a lot from the vid.

I was doing great since late September, relative beginners luck I suppose. Until last Tuesday when I shorted oil and gas on the breakout. So humbling. Ouch! Learned a lot there too! the expensive way. I shoulda heeded the warnings!

Thanks. Don't get down too much on yourself for making mistakes in this market. Anyone that tells you they have been doing great over the last two months is most likely lying. This market has chopped up all types of traders, experts and amateurs alike. You will always make mistakes as a trader - the key is learning from there and hopefully lessening them as you go on.
