With stock markets reaching impressive new highs, we couldn't be more thrilled about the success we've achieved in our live trading rooms. As we continued to rake in profits, it became abundantly clear that now is the time to seize the opportunity. Not only am I personally making gains, but I feel compelled to spread the word. That's why my team approached me with the idea of creating an introduction video using a teleprompter while walking outside—a new and exciting challenge.
Traditionally, we had a studio setup with a static background, a fixed camera, and a dedicated person managing the camera and teleprompter. But the idea of walking, managing the camera, and reading from a teleprompter all at once felt like something out of a science fiction movie. After conducting some quick research and consulting with my TV producer, I discovered an iPhone app and various teleprompter/video apps for just $4. These apps allowed me to load the script, hold my iPhone while walking around my home, and create a brief, five-minute video.

CURRENT TRADING LANDSCAPE
Despite a mixed day on Friday, the markets closed the week on a positive note, driven by an impressive rally fueled by the latest inflation data, Federal Reserve comments, and the start of earnings season. Big banks' earnings, such as JPMorgan Chase (ticker: JPM), Citigroup (C), BlackRock, and Wells Fargo, exceeded expectations, boosting investor optimism.
JPMorgan Chase stood out as its second-quarter profits experienced a significant surge. This boost can be attributed to higher interest rates and the acquisition of First Republic Bank in May. The bank reported a remarkable 67% increase in profits, reaching $14.5 billion, which translated to earnings of $4.75 per share.
Citigroup also delivered strong second-quarter earnings and revenue, surpassing expectations. Despite revenue falling 1% from the previous year, Citi's results exceeded consensus estimates. The decline in markets and the investment banking sector weighed on their overall revenue performance.
Wells Fargo also made positive strides, with its earnings and revenue outperforming analysts' consensus. The bank's net interest income benefited from higher interest rates, contributing to its favorable results. Wells Fargo reported second-quarter earnings of $1.25 per share on revenue of $20.5 billion.
These robust earnings reports from JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and Wells Fargo demonstrate the resilience and profitability of the banking sector. They provide valuable insights into the overall health of the economy and play a significant role in shaping market sentiment.
Looking back at the start of the week, the anticipation of key reports and the beginning of the earnings season for major banks propelled the markets higher. All three major U.S. indices closed in the green as market participants eagerly awaited the release of June's consumer price index (CPI) and sought insights into the broader economy and the Federal Reserve's stance on fighting inflation.
The released data for June's CPI showed a larger-than-expected slowdown in inflation, which is positive news for the Federal Reserve's efforts to achieve price stability. Although consumer prices rose at a 3% annual pace, a deceleration from the previous month, the central bank still faces significant challenges in navigating the economy toward stability.
The producer-price index report also provided evidence of disinflation, as wholesale prices rose less than anticipated. This, coupled with the deceleration in consumer price growth, alleviated concerns over rapidly rising inflation, instilling confidence in the market.
Earnings season kicked off mid-week with impressive reports from Delta Air Lines and PepsiCo. Delta achieved record revenue and profitability, driven by strong demand and favorable fuel costs, surpassing both analyst expectations and its own guidance. PepsiCo continued to outperform expectations, reinforcing positive market sentiment and solidifying its position in the consumer staple sector.
Additionally, consumer sentiment soared to its highest level in nearly two years in July, accompanied by a waning of inflation across the board. Import prices also experienced a decline, further contributing to the positive sentiment.
Taking these factors into consideration, the market continues to trade sideways, with expectations of increased volatility in the second half of the year. The Federal Reserve's more hawkish stance, potential rate hikes based on inflation data, and rotation into value stocks while building a top in the tech sector all contribute to the market's current state. Although the market appears overbought, it may continue to rise as the top is forming in technology stocks and value stocks continue their upward trajectory.
In terms of global markets, Europe, China, small caps, regional banks, and cyclicals are experiencing a rally. The tech sector remains in an intact uptrend, while the U.S. Dollar Index (DXY) has sold off and is testing a 52-week low. Yield has also pulled back significantly. This dynamic creates a make-or-break scenario for the stock market and currency markets.
Personally, I remain in the camp of expecting a hard landing, considering the Federal Reserve's high-interest rates and the historically high U.S. Dollar. If the dollar rebounds, the market may sell off, whereas a continued decline in the dollar could sustain the market rally.
I still hold the belief that the SPY rally will be capped at $440-450 levels, with short support at 400-430 for the coming weeks. The second half of the year may see the restart of the bear market. See $SPY Seasonal Chart:

TRADE OF THE WEEK - $META Threads: A New Way to Share Big Profits
In this week's trade spotlight, we turn our attention to a tech giant that has been reshaping the way we connect and share information: $META.
Meta Platforms Inc. (META) is a multinational technology company and the parent company of popular social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Oculus. Helmed by Mark Zuckerberg, $META has become one of the leading forces in the digital landscape, connecting billions of users worldwide and transforming the way people communicate, share information, and engage with one another.
As we anticipate the tech sector to soar, supported by the latest market levels, our AI forecasts, and the upcoming earnings season, $META stands out as a strong buy. With its global user base and dominance in the social media landscape, $META is well-positioned to benefit from the increased reliance on technology and digital communication.
The latest addition to $META's offerings is THREADS, a feature designed to rival the popular social media platform Twitter. THREADS allows users to engage in more extensive and shared conversations within a dedicated community, enhancing the user experience and encouraging deeper connections. With some contention bubbling up in the Twittersphere, Threads was presented as an alternative by Mark Zuckerberg. This addition demonstrates $META's ability to adapt to evolving user preferences.
Furthermore, the increasing digitalization of various aspects of our lives, coupled with the growing importance of social media in communication and content sharing, creates a favorable environment for $META's continued success. As users increasingly rely on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp for networking, information consumption, and entertainment, $META is well-positioned to capture the value generated by these trends.
Looking at the 10-day forecast for META I see several encouraging signals, foremost being its vector trend. With a steady and impressive swing towards the upside, $META shows a directional trend that is both consistent and strong. This is the type of forecast I look for when I aim to make profits from bullish runs. See $META 10-Day Predicted Data:
Keep a close eye on $META as it continues to shape the digital landscape, introduce new features, and adapt to evolving user preferences. The company's commitment to innovation, coupled with its well-established platforms and extensive user base, positions it for continued success and potential profit growth.
This week, I’ll be adding $META to my portfolio!
