Sentiment Tradeder has seen lots of profit the last few weeks, so for our VIP members here we are looking in other areas or pockets of the market, and this week seen another interesting chart for our members.  

Aerospace and Defense ETFs which has been recently Rocket Higher

Aerospace and defense stock ETFs are rising on news of Northrop Grumman's $7.8 billion bid for Orbital ATK.

Aerospace and defense company stocks got a boost Monday morning on news of Northrop Grumman's (NOC) $7.8 billion acquisition of Orbital ATK (OA). Barron's Jack Hough, who wrote the cover story about the new space race and highlighted Orbital as a pick back in 2015, deserves a round of applause.

SENTIMENT Trader have gotten many questions about this, but we find  2 of the charts very interesting. 

Shares of Orbital are up more than 20% so far today to around $132.51. Northrop's stock is up a little more than 2% to around $272.63.

Meanwhile the $4.2 billion iShares U.S. Aerospace & Defense ETF (ITA) and the $863 million SPDR S&P Aerospace & Defense ETF (XAR) climbed 1.4% and 2.1%, respectively. The SPDR ETF is up slightly more because it tracks an equal-weighted index to capture industry exposure across large-, mid-, and small-cap stocks with roughly the same weighting in Northrop and Grumman. The market-cap weighted iShares ETF has a bigger exposure to Northrop than Orbital. Here is the chart of the ITA SECTOR ITSELF!!!....We went to NEW HIGHS today! WOW!!!!

 One our our [ VIP clients here ] asked about is this gone too highs, and we think the answer to that is multifaceted, but it comes down to the geopolitical risks in the market right now. So if ROCKET MAN, keeps firing off rockets, we feel investors will shift and find shelter in safety so this might be a very good chart to watch in case these sorts of events continue to transpire. 

We did warn this might be a chart to watch back in JANUARY, but it sort of slipped through the cracks until this on going fued with RUSSIA and NORTH KOREA, which every time you switch on the news tends to be at the top of the news most nights. 

While the SPDR ETF charges a slightly lower fee, the iShares ETF has a longer tenure and a proven record for delivering slightly better returns. Over the last five years, the iShares ETF returned 22.39% compared to the SPDR's 21.89%, according to our data.

"vix fear index chart - how to trade vix" 

in the news vix fear index chart - how to trade vix? What this all about..... See below. 

------------------------------

Sentiment Trader has been providing data to our VIP members here, which is quite interesting. Probably one of the most interesting things we have seen this year. 

(Investing  and saying LETS BET long on the VIX is a "quick way to lose money)

Betting against stock market volatility is one of the hottest trades in the market. But it has not been working out too well as of late.....

It's also one of the most controversial, with many pundits viewing it as increasingly vulnerable to a market blowup.

Sentiment trader — who has nailed the eight-year bull market at every turn — has decided its the best to be staying out of the fray completely. Having experienced considerable success simply trading on the benchmark S&P 500 index and evaluating stocks on an individual basis, hopping in to the VIX here and expecting an explosion higher, might be an exercise in 2017 deemed as pointless.

Our top analysts think our view on CBOE Volatility Index — or VIX — while also covering such hot-button market topics as equity valuations, exchange-traded funds, the effect of politics on the market, and what important factor he thinks investors are missing.

What we have note is a strange repeating pattern on the charts. everytime we go to 16 or 17 on the chart, the VIX just stalls and then DROPS like a rock!! Have a look at the chart we have drawn below. A strange phenomenon we call, "Twisted Fate"



One our our [ VIP clients here ] asked about low volatility and why the trade is not working....we replied:

"Like so many things, that is a characteristic of a market. When people say to me that the market hasn't had a 1% run in a certain number of days, that tells me just that. It doesn't tell me anything about tomorrow or what's going to happen. No one really knows what is going to happen tomorrow or in the days ahead!!!


The VIX in 2017 really isn't the fear index — it's a measure of potential volatility in either direction. Yet for some reason, people have put on the ideology that if the VIX spikes, the market's going to go down. 

No,.... that is not always the case....when the VIX spikes, it means the market could go either up or down a lot. If you go back to the bottom in 2009, the VIX was telling you that there were going to be another two years of a bear market. It tells you about volatility, not direction. We like to think of this as just another vehicle. It's totally meaningless with regard to the future of the market or telling you what is about to happen. Its been like that for the last 10 years

 In an uninteresting market, people have found that this is something you can play. It seems like VIX ETFs and [exchange-traded notes] are a quick way to lose money. And the last few months people are losing lots of money scratching their heads, without realize what we are talking about here is a very detailed subject, and needs to be talked about.

NVIDA chart


NVIDA chart 

"NVIDA chart " 

in the news NVIDA chart ? What this all about..... See below. 

------------------------------

Sentiment Trader sees the NVIDA chart....

also we think with the rise of cryptocurrency mining market is strong for Nvidia and AMD we think cryptocurrency mining will be a viable growth market longer term for Nvidia and AMD. That is the secret play here. 

Nvidia's stock is up nearly 180 percent in the past 12 months through midday Monday compared with the S&P 500's 17 percent gain. That performance ranks No. 1 in the entire S&P 500, according to FactSet.


AMD shares are up 112 percent in the same time period, a return that ranks No. 2 in the benchmark index.

This is quite interesting The NVDIA is near the highs in a wedge formation!! but the chart is looking strong!. 





We actually believe that the technology they are based on, called Blockchain, which supports secure accounting of distributed ledgers, has applications in financial services beyond cryptocurrencies. We expect demand for Blockchain GPUs (including for cryptocurrencies) to continue to grow and become an important driver for GPU growth, even if with some degree of volatility.

bitcoin a speculative bubble - bitcoin a speculative bubble


bitcoin a speculative bubble

"bitcoin a speculative bubble" 

in the news bitcoin a speculative bubble? What this all about..... See below. 

------------------------------

Sentiment Trader reassessed his thoughts on bitcoin after starkly warning his clients against the high-flying digital currency in July. 

We were fortunate enough to read the tea leaves and with charts call the financial crisis and the dot-com bubble implosion before it happened. 

There has been particularly spirited response and comments on digital currencies, I think I understand what a digital currency is, how bitcoin works, and some of the arguments for it. I can understand why people do not want to put their money to work in this asset because it is considered a very speculative bubble.

Bitcoin's price is up more 350 percent year to date, according to data from industry website CoinDesk. The digital currency fell 7 percent Friday on a report China may shut down local bitcoin exchanges. Personally I think this is more a positive thing than a negative, as the price would have crashed much further if people go nervous. 

An initial assessment of bitcoin is pretty dismal when you read what other analysts think, They do call it an "unfounded fad (or perhaps even a pyramid scheme)" i. While I can see that side of the argument, it could be legitimately used as a viable form of payment. So there are two sides to every coin, pun intended. :-)

"What bitcoin partisans have told me subsequently is that bitcoin should be thought of as a currency – a medium of exchange – and maybe not an investment asset, "Bitcoin fans argue that it qualifies as a currency … it's something that parties can agree to accept as legal tender and a store of value. That actually seems right.

On the flip side, you must remember that there are "no limits" on the creation of new cryptocurrencies and warned bitcoin may not become the eventual victor. So we can compard the current digital currency situation to the dot-com bubble period: What will happen next is anyones guess?

So even if digital currencies are here to stay, who knows which one will turn out to be the winner? Hundreds of e-commerce start-ups appreciated rapidly in the tech bubble based on the premise that 'the Internet will change the world.' It did, but most of the companies ended up worthless. Will this happen in the crypto world, well I am not sure, but they are here to stay and its gaining massive popularity!!!


You can see that just in the last 6 months, bitcoin itself has gone from $1000 all the way to $5000 per coin, and just off the highs today. 

 This is quite interesting & amazing on the charts, and we have not seen this for a while.....

At the time of posting this BITCOIN itself was about $700 down from its all time highs, and as news out of china hits the headlines we will see if that effects the price more!.

How the 2008 financial crisis changed our investing approach forever ?

How the 2008 financial crisis changed our investing approach forever

Every week we go into the market,  with the mission of helping people become better investors. Over the past 15 years or so that mission has transformed to match the surrounding environment.

since the first newsletter began as an outgrowth of our podcast, which is no longer in existence,   Back then, people craved specific investment ideas.

But everything changed when the 2008 financial crisis hit investors and tainted the way they viewed the market.

During that time, the downturn ravaged many big companies, especially in the financial sector, and caused a dramatic decline in economic activity.

"That era changed things, and it changed us. It changed the way we wrote and invested.


These days is no longer about just giving stock ideas, because, in our opinion, that is not enough anymore.

In fact, we now has deliberately minimized highlighting stock ideas. we would rather teach investors to understand the process and be able to pick stocks for themselves.

"Ever since we changed the format, we have tried to leave behind the so-called 'new ideas' or 'hot ideas,' and instead tried to give you themes that allow you to invest in more fertile sectors versus others, themes that I hope I can make come alive so you can do the homework on them, that is where the power in this market lies. Not out there, or with software. But in your own mind and capabilities.

Ultimately, we are of the opinion that stocks can be one of the greatest investment vehicles out there. They represent the overall progress of a business and the prospects for that business going forward. Companies can also distribute their wealth to shareholders and be very rewarding.

So what we do want, is for investors to go along for the ride with stocks, but that means doing it in a responsible way. That is why he always suggests index funds as safe ways to invest.

sentiment trader has changed over time from one where we pick stocks for you to one where we educate you about stocks so you can understand why an index fund might be worth investing in, but what we are good at are spotting opportunities, hot trends before they happen and extremes in the market. Teaching our clients this has made huge profits for them over a longer term time frame.

China just made a huge move against cryptocurrencies

China bans companies from raising money through ICOs, asks local regulators to inspect 60 major platforms.

Regulators are about to begin scrutinizing China's initial coin offerings — an industry worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

Local outlet Caixin reported that a notice, issued by a working committee that oversees risk in the country's internet finance sector, said new projects raising cash or other virtual currencies through cryptocurrencies will be banned. It added that authorities will crack down on related fraudulent practices.

The price of bitcoin has been in a bullish channel since mid july. Currently it looks vulnerable to breaking down from its channel, but does not look like its about to crash. Time will tell, here is the chart. 

China just made a huge move against cryptocurrencies



Chinese paramilitary police officers march during the flag-lowering ceremony in front of the Tiananmen Gate in Beijing, China.

The document defined initial coin offerings (ICOs) as an unauthorized fundraising tool that may involve financial scams, the Caixin report noted. The committee provided a list of 60 major ICO platforms for local financial regulatory bodies to inspect.

Seven government administrations including the People's Bank of China, China Securities Regulatory Commission, China Banking Regulatory Commission and China Insurance Regulatory Commission issued a joint statement where they reiterated that ICOs are unauthorized illegal fund raising activity.

The statement said authorities are banning all organizations and individuals from raising funds through ICO activities and that all banks and financial institutions should not do any business related to ICO trading.

Organizations and individuals that have completed fundraising through ICOs should make relevant arrangement to return funds, in order to protect the interests of investors and properly deal with risks.

The statement added that enhanced management is needed on digital coin fundraising platforms.

 Should you invest in a cryptocurrency? Should you invest in a cryptocurrency?

Bitcoin's price fell more than 5 percent on Monday to about $4,376.42, according to Coindesk data, following the news about the crackdown. Ethereum, widely considered the bigger beneficiary of the ICO boom of the two, was down more than 12 percent.

ICOs have become a primary means of fundraising for projects built on blockchain technology. Companies create and issue digital tokens that can be used to pay for goods and services on their platform or stashed away as an investment. They put out whitepapers describing the platform, software or product they're trying to build, and then people buy those tokens using widely-accepted cryptocurrencies like bitcoin or ethereum.

Start-ups around the world have raised more than a billion dollars this year in coin sales. In China, ICOs have raised at least 2.62 billion yuan (about $400 million), Reuters reported, citing local media.

Some Chinese ICO platforms have already halted their services. ICOINFO said on its website that it was voluntarily temporarily suspending "all ICO-related functionality on the site" until it received clarity on the shifting regulatory environment.

BTCC, a Shanghai-based bitcoin exchange platform, said it halted trading of ICOCOIN over the weekend. Its CEO, Bobby Lee, told CNBC in July that cryptocurrencies need to be regulated or they risk going out of control as more people invest into those digital assets.

Caixin further reported that authorities shut down a blockchain conference over the weekend, citing concerns over ICOs being used to raise funds illegally.

Last week, China's National Internet Finance Association warned ICO investors to be wary of fraud and urged them to report any suspected crimes to the police.

Part of the appeal of ICOs, beyond speculation on the growth of new assets, is that early-stage start-ups can use them to raise large sums of money without receiving the same kind of scrutiny that they might when approaching venture capital investors.

China is not the first country to look into potential regulatory oversight in this booming space. Regulators in the United States and Singapore have highlighted the risks of money laundering and fraud that investors face when buying into a digital token sale. But experts have warned that regulators need to understand the space better so as not to stifle innovation.

North Korea claims successful hydrogen bomb test

North Korea said on state television on Sunday afternoon that it successfully carried out a test of a hydrogen bomb intended to be carried by an ICBM

North Korea said on state television on Sunday afternoon that it successfully carried out a test of a hydrogen bomb intended to be carried by an intercontinental ballistic missile.

"North Korea's supreme dear leader signed the order to test hydrogen bomb to be fitted to the ICBM and accordingly North Korea has tested a hydrogen bomb at noon on Sept. 3rd (North Korea time) and succeeded totally," a female newscaster said on the KCNA televised announcement, according to an NBC News translation.

A hydrogen bomb is much more powerful than the simpler types of atomic weapons tested by North Korea five times previously, or the bombs dropped on Japan during World War II. H-bombs are also harder to develop.

UPON HEARING THE NEWS, THE S&P futures IN GLOBEX DROPPED 10 POINTS! We are urging our members to be careful. See below......

The test, which the North said was a "perfect success," produced a greater yield than previous tests, with no adverse impact on the environment, North Korea's news agency KCNA said in a statement.

The bomb was "of unprecedentedly big power," and marked a "very significant occasion" toward a final goal of becoming a nuclear state, the full text of the announcement said.

On Sunday, President Donald Trump condemned North Korea's latest weapons test, saying the nation's actions were very "hostile and dangerous" to the United States, and an embarrassment to China.

North Korea's announcement followed reports of as many as two tremors in the rogue state at around noon local time, which officials in South Korea and Japan had said appeared to be the country's sixth nuclear test.

Norway-based geoscience research foundation Norsar, which works to verify compliance with the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, said on Sunday that the underground nuclear test on Sunday was estimated to have an explosive yield of 120 kilotons, compared with the estimated 15 kiloton yield of the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.

The defense committee chairman in South Korea's parliament, Kim Young-woo cited a report from military authorities and said the yield was provisionally estimated at up to 100 kilotons, which would be around four or five times the size of the bomb dropped on Nagasaki in 1945, the South's official news agency Yonhap reported.

Meanwhile, Japan's meteorological agency said the tremors were at least ten times as powerful as the North's previous test, which was in September of last year, Reuters reported. But South Korea's meteorological agency put the energy at five to six times the fifth nuclear test, Reuters reported.

The test followed North Korea saying on Sunday that it had developed a more advanced thermonuclear weapon of "great destructive power," which it would load onto an intercontinental ballistic missile, Reuters reported.

The North's leader, Kim Jung Un, had been shown in an undated picture released by the country's news agency on Sunday inspecting what was claimed to be a hydrogen bomb.

South Korea's presidential senior secretary for national defense spoke over the phone with his U.S. counterpart, national security adviser H.R. McMaster, a South Korean presidential spokesperson told NBC.
