Monday was the worst day in a month for the S&P 500 – and that can be attributed to more than a few factors…
Coronavirus cases are hitting new daily highs over 84,000 in the U.S.
Washington has yet to agree on a new stimulus bill.
The presidential election is just one week away.
Yet, under all this headline-making news, there’s one major market mover that seems to have been forgotten…
On Tuesday, Apple unveiled its latest iPhone. And the event can be summed up into just four words:
5G just got real.
Apple’s iPhone 12 will offer 5G coverage, and its Pro model will have the broadest 5G coverage available worldwide, making it one of the speediest smartphones on the market.
But Apple shared more than just 5G on Tuesday.
Over the course of the one-hour-and-10-minute event, the tech giant showcased 11 new product features – each of which resulted in a different reaction from the stock.
See, with a $2 trillion market cap, Apple is the largest company in the U.S. And after Tuesday’s event, it’s clear that title comes with a plethora of profit opportunities…
One of which is a long-term pattern with the potential to triple your money.
Here’s how you can play Apple’s new iPhone 12 release – and turn that pattern into a 233% gain…
We haven’t seen a September pullback this steep since 2011.
Yesterday, with coronavirus fear and uncertainty mounting, the Dow shed over 500 points by the end of the day, putting the markets into official correction territory.
Investors are fearful. And the pundits on TV are saying that the worst is yet to come.
Yesterday marked an important day in the market – stocks finally turned positive for 2020.
Back in March, when stocks were crashing and circuit breakers were hit, many investors struggled to see this day through the money-draining mania.
But yesterday, we were there…
Until we weren’t.
By closing bell, the S&P and the Nasdaq had turned negative. The Dow was up a mere 22 points. And once again, we were reminded of just how unpredictable the market can be.
That’s why I wanted to share an exclusive video from my Youtube account, Tom’s Trading Room, with you today.
I kicked the week off with this video yesterday. You see, with the markets moving this fast, it’s important to take a step back. Because the only indication we have of the future is the past – as a pattern trader, I know that first hand.
And some of the biggest market moves come from the FAANGs – Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google.

The Fourth of July may be over – but the profit potential that the holiday brings is just getting started.
See, today I want to tell you about one of the most lucrative patterns the market has to offer…
The holiday pattern.
I follow 10 holidays throughout the year that close the market for trading. And I’ve found that buying a stock or exchange-traded fund (ETF) before a holiday and selling it after is a proven strategy when it comes to playing this pattern.
And Independence Day brings one of the most accurate patterns of the year.
But in order to discover the best time to buy and sell, we need to look at backtested results.
Now that the market has reopened, here’s exactly how to harness the Fourth of July’s profit potential…
When you’re stuck at home day in and day out, your thoughts tend to wander. And mine have been stuck on this market.
We’re more than 20% down from recent market highs – the flat-out definition of a bear market.
But at the same time, stocks have begun to rally. As I’m writing, we’re around a 20% retracement from recent market lows as well.
Now, typically, I wouldn’t buy this rally. But it’s definitely testing me…
Are we in the midst of a bear market or a bull market? Each side has a solid argument backing it up – but today, I’m going to tell you my take.
This is where the market is headed next…
The Dow is on track for its best week since 1938 – but that doesn’t mean it’s all blue skies ahead.
Last week’s unemployment claims, released Thursday morning, soared to an unprecedented number of 3.3 million – the highest in history. Second place isn’t even close, with the previous high sitting at just 695,000 in 1982.
Never in my lifetime could I have imagined an event like this. With businesses across the country shutting down, the economy is in danger of plunging into a full-blown recession – and there seems to be nothing we can do to stop it.
The word “recession” is scary. But it’s not the end of the world… not even close.
In fact, you could come out of it even stronger than you were before.
Here’s how you can make a short-term profit on the market’s fall – and a long-term profit on its eventual recovery…
I’ve found a pattern in the market’s drastic movement these past few weeks.
It seems we’re in a constant downtrend. Markets will fall, sometimes as low as their limit-down price, just as the Dow did before the market opened Monday morning.
Then, with any good news, we see a violent pop – like the Dow’s 1% jump after the Federal Reserve unveiled unlimited asset purchases…
Only to resume the freefall again, shortly after.
Now, I expect this trend to continue. But it’s not the only pattern making itself clear right now…
In my latest update, we took a look at these patterns – and how we can use them both to save money and profit off the continued volatility.

Ah, Valentine’s Day. A day filled with chocolate hearts, romantic comedies, and dinners at your favorite special-occasion restaurants…
Or, as some see it, a corporate- and Hallmark-spun fraud of a day created with nothing but money in mind.
I tend to agree with the latter – but I don’t say it with the bitterness that you typically hear behind the words.
Instead, I say it with optimism and excitement. Because there’s an opportunity at hand…
This year, Valentine’s Day spending is expected to be 32% higher than last year, making for the highest sales number in history.
The record-breaking number will have retailers swimming in profit. And if you know how to play it, you’ll be enjoying some extra cash of your own.
Even if you’ve always been against tomorrow’s holiday, now you have a reason to celebrate.
Capitalize on the retail rush with these four Valentine’s trades…
