“I’ve Got Your Six.” You may have heard that saying – it’s a military term and it means, “I’m watching your back,” as the “six” refers to your “Six O’clock.” Here at The Sevens Report, we often say that we’ve got our subscribers’ “six,” and that’s why in today’s paid edition of the Report we[…]
The music is back on. Several times over the past few years I’ve referred to the markets as a real life game of “musical chairs.” We all know the children’s game: When the music plays you run around the chairs and you hope that you have a place to sit when the music stops, otherwise[…]
Stocks surged last week thanks almost entirely to the post-jobs-report Friday rally. The S&P 500 rose 1.28% on the week, and is up 4.21% year to date, and now is within a few points of its all-time high. Despite the gains, the week started with some volatility as the S&P 500 dropped 1% Tuesday following[…]

And while far from an “all clear,” there have been a few positives for European banks last week. First, the SX7P, the[…]
Around 7 p.m. last night those of us watching markets knew we had a problem. The results from Sunderland came in massively for “Leave,” and they were expected to only show a marginal “Leave” victory.

Brexit Preview: Good,[…]
When you started in this business, did anyone sit you down and explain that watching things like the “10’s minus 2’s Spread” could help predict economic slowdowns and potentially avoid stock markets declines? Me either. I learned it the hard way – through being an execution trader and later a buy side portfolio manager through[…]
“Should we get in?” That was a question a subscriber asked me on a call this morning. This subscriber (a wire-house FA), like many good advisors these days, has been frustrated by the seemingly random volatility of the market so far in 2016 and is wondering if the 2 week, 3% dip in stocks is[…]
Hi, Last night I was preparing dinner with my wife and she asked me why stocks are going down again, and I began to list the reasons why: Stronger yen, commodity rally losing steam, more lack luster economic data. While I was listing the current headwinds, I just happened to be peeling an onion, and[…]
I know it’s Easter week but unfortunately the markets don’t follow holiday schedules sometimes and yesterday may turn out to be a pretty critical day in the life of this rally.This 13%, one-month rally in stocks detached from the fundamentals a few weeks ago (things have not improved this much since February) so we’ve been[…]
