Cannabis Stocks Soar as Jeff Sessions “Resigns”
The S&P 500 confidently finished with a gain of 2.1% on Wednesday with the benchmark index now up 6.4% since its close on October 29. Wednesday's advance follows the conclusion of U.S. congressional midterm elections that produced a split Congress. The prevailing assumption in the market was that a newly divided Congress would preserve market-friendly policies, namely the tax cut and deregulation efforts. U.S. President Donald Trump also mentioned on Wednesday bipartisan efforts to work with the Democrats in the House on infrastructure, trade, and lowering drug costs. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 2.1%, the Nasdaq Composite gained 2.6%, and the Russell 2000 gained 1.7%.
Stocks Continue to Struggle in light of Trade Concerns
Stocks fell on Friday following conflicting US China trade reports and softer-than-expected sales guidance from Apple (AAPL 207.48, -14.74, -6.6%). Futures rallied overnight on a Bloomberg report indicating U.S. President Trump asked his cabinet to draft a trade deal, but stocks eventually fell into negative territory after White House officials denied the report. The S&P 500 lost 0.6%, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 0.4%, and the Nasdaq Composite lost 1.0%. Small caps outperformed, with the Russell 2000 adding 0.2%. All four major indices closed solidly higher for the week, adding between 2.4% and 4.3% apiece. Director of the United States National Economic Council Larry Kudlow confirmed in a CNBC interview that the cabinet was not asked by President Trump to draw up a trade plan for China. Later, as stocks traded at session lows, President Trump reiterated his belief to reporters that the U.S. will reach a trade deal with China. This led stocks to cut their losses in late afternoon trading.

Psychology of REDFebruary 3, 2018
You can teach anyone how to read a chart, how to look at the fundamentals of a company, and even give you a decent evaluation of that company. Learning to trade is one thing, but the psychology of trading is a completely different beast. The psychological aspect of trading is one of the prominent reasons as though why I love the stock market. If you are the self-reflective type you can learn a lot about yourself and others. It is best to ask yourself questions such as why do you sell for a loss when you know that your research is sound, even if you may have jumped in at the wrong time, or why did you buy the stock at the wrong time? Was it because you ended up chasing? or did you think you had found the bottom? As part of the education section of the blog I am going to discuss some of the psychological aspects that play a role in our trading mentality.Read More
WHAT IS A CRYPTOCURRENCY?December 19, 2017
As any investing enthusiast, it is hard to turn a blind eye to the recent surge of cryptocurrency. Yet, at the same time one has to be skeptic towards the value and the impressive growth specific cryptocurrencies and their investors have come to enjoy in the past 3-4 years.
