Reviewing the Equity Indexes, Gold, Oil, Bonds, The Dollar, Foreign Markets and Volatility and assessing the upcoming week. This is delivered Saturday morning. On Sunday you get 5 exclusive trade ideas culled from reviewing over 900 individual charts. Additionally there are 5 more ideas that I offer high level analysis to the public, but then expand with detailed triggers, stops, support and resistance levels and profit targets and how to adjust them only to premium users.

I also offer 1-3 additional trade ideas daily, with the same detailed trading plan. These could also be good set ups from the charts but often are earnings related. Most of these mid week ideas are options focused. Many trades are proposed with both stock and options idea, and sometimes several options trades so you can choose according on your risk tolerance. Finally, you get access to me, to ask about these trades, the market or anything else.
