Morning Market Briefing – First (Trading) Friday

January 8, 2020

Have you seen our live shows? Join us for “The Trend” each market morning at 9:00AM EST, and “Beyond the Bell” at the close. See what’s trending in the markets and find out what our traders are watching each day! Check them out on the “Insights” tab.

It’s the first trading Friday of 2021 and already it couldn’t get here soon enough. For those able to turn away from the dumpster fire that is the last couple of news cycles, the markets pushed to all-time highs yet again on Thursday, and Friday’s pre market looks like a green open. How much value to the long side is left is a fair question for swing traders. New and continued COVID lockdowns will weigh on the market, but the prospect of a new (and larger) stimulus is on the table after the recent runoff elections.

From the entire team here at YouCanTrade, we hope you and your family have a wonderful 2021!

Very strong day on Thursday. 375 can be viewed as short term support if the SPY wants to test that over the next session or two.

Just peeked it’s head above all-time highs before retreating a bit into the close. Early action shows a gap above 315, and we’ll use that as short term support in the event of a pullback.

Watch List

Symbol Why We’re Watching

Mastering Your Trading Mindset: My Awful First Year

Have you found yourself making emotional decisions in your trading? Have you learned several backtested strategies only to fail to deploy them profitably for yourself? Do you stare at the ceiling at night and wonder if you’ll ever figure this trading thing out?
I did all this my first year trading. At live events, webinars and even casual conversation with friends, I’m always asked what turned it around. During this webinar, I’ll walk through what steps I took to make myself a profitable trader after a nightmare first six months.
This special event will be light on slides, heavy on stories, with plenty of time for Q&A. And if you’re a new or struggling trader, I hope you’ll leave with a few ideas of how to get yourself on the right track.
