NEW! Seasonality View for ChartLists!

Ever wish you could flip through Seasonality charts for a saved ChartList? Tired of entering one symbol at a time? Well, we've got great news! We just launched a brand-new feature for our ChartList Views - Seasonality View!

To try out the new Seasonality View, head over to the Members Dashboard and scroll down to your ChartLists. In the "View As" dropdown menu for any of your saved lists, you'll notice a new option titled "Seasonality". Select that and voila! You'll be flipping through seasonality charts faster than you can say "historically strong month". Use the blue arrow buttons to move from chart to chart, or select a specific chart from the list using the grey dropdown button.

This is our "beta" version of the new Seasonality View, but as always, we'd love to hear your feedback! Let us know what you think. Plus, keep an eye out for new versions of our other ChartList Views, coming soon!

Some Commodities Had A Nice Bounce This Week

Article Image Commodities have been trying to rally recently, and this week they really kicked in to high gear. Industrial Metals had a great week, led by $COPPER. I particularly like when the big global miners react, and 4 of 4 crossed above the 10 week moving average. Two of them made new 3 month highs! But wait, there's more! $COPPER broke above a 6-year trend line and closed the week, the month and the...

So let's do exactly that and focus on a few potential trading candidates in the days and weeks ahead. 1...

What the Market Needs now is...Earnings

Article Image The market moved into a rare funk last week as traders decided in unison to take profits, especially in the tech heavy NASDAQ.
