Let’s Take a Fresh Look at Crude Oil

Today we are looking at a January crude oil contract, but this can be any of the other contract months.
We’ve looked at this market before and were expecting it to go higher. It did not, however, fulfill that promise and with a red weekly “triangle” in place, it appears as though this market is heading down, but is it?
In today’s short video I discover an interesting cycle that I want to share with you. This cycle along with our MACD indicator, daily and weekly “triangles” are beginning to look extremely interesting.
I strongly recommend taking a few minutes out of your day to watch this educational and informative video on crude oil.
All the best,

A Major Market Leader Falters…: By Adam Hewison

 One of the big success stories in 2009 was the rise of Apple. With its sexy new products like the iPhone, the iPod, and the iMac, Apple has seen its fortunes rise in dramatic fashion.

So what’s happening just before the holidays with Apple? Why are we seeing Apple stutter and falter? In my new video, I share with you what I believe is going to happen to one of my favorite markets.

I will also share with you the Apple trading results for 2009 using our “Trade Triangle” technology. The results have been good, in fact, very good. I think you’ll enjoy seeing how we made out in Apple.

As always our videos are free to watch and there is no need for registration.

All the best,

Preparing For the Next Asia [Editor’s Note: This interview was adapted from a recent issue of the McKinsey Quarterly, the business Journal of McKinsey & Co. It is reprinted with McKinsey’s permission.]
Asia has proven comparatively resilient against the current downturn, but hurdles still lie ahead. In order to maintain robust growth rates in the face of weak U.S. demand, the region’s dynamic economies must stoke domestic consumption and embrace environmentally sustainable development policies, says Stephen Roach, chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia (NYSE: MS) and author of “The Next Asia: Opportunities and Challenges for a New Globalization.”
Clay Chandler, Asia editor with McKinsey & Co.’s publishing group, spoke with Roach in Hong Kong recently. During the interview, Roach analyzed the prospects for increased integration and cooperation between the region’s economies; explored the pitfalls and potential for countries like India and Japan; and considered whether the “Asian Century” has finally arrived.
Here is the text of that interview.
Clay Chandler: Steve, thank you for being …


Special Alert

December 3, 2009

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (also of interest to Security Officer)
Fraudulent Correspondence Claiming to Be From the FDIC
Fraudulent correspondence bearing the FDIC's name continues to be mailed, faxed and e-mailed. This correspondence is being used in illegal schemes to collect sensitive personal information, such as bank account numbers, and to steal money and other assets.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is reminding financial institutions, businesses and consumers that fraudulent correspondence claiming to be from the FDIC continues to be mailed, faxed and e-mailed in the United States and other countries. The correspondence uses various techniques to gain the trust of recipients in hopes they will provide sensitive personal information, including bank account numbers, that can be used to steal money and other assets. Recipients should NOT, under any circumstances, respond to the fraudulent requests. Institutions also are encouraged to inform customers that fraud artists may use the names of the FDIC and other government agencies and to take appropriate precautions.
The criminals, knowing that people trust the FDIC name, have duplicated the official logo and seal in fraudulent letters, forms, certificates and other correspondence. Recent examples have included invoices, bills, transfer forms, guarantees, endorsements, and confirmations of stock and investment purchases. In some cases, recipients were asked to complete fraudulent forms and return them by fax or e-mail. In other cases, recipients were asked to remit funds via check or wire transfer service.
The FDIC rarely sends unsolicited bills or other similar documents to financial institutions, businesses and consumers. In particular, the FDIC does not send unsolicited correspondence asking for sensitive personal information, including bank account information. Anyone receiving such correspondence should contact the FDIC immediately by calling toll-free at 1-877-ASK-FDIC (1-877-275-3342) or by e-mailing to Do not use contact information listed for the FDIC in the correspondence because it is likely to be falsified.
Information about counterfeit items, cyber-fraud incidents and other fraudulent activity may be forwarded to the FDIC's Cyber-Fraud and Financial Crimes Section, 550 17th Street, N.W., Room F-3054, Washington, D.C. 20429, or transmitted electronically to Questions related to fraudulent correspondence, deposit insurance or consumer issues should be submitted to the FDIC using an online form that can be accessed at
