Today's Trade Log is archived @ http://www.thestrategylab.com/ftchat/forum/viewtopic.php?f=173&t=2694

All of my trades are posted real-time at the above link for today's archive chat log in the timestamp ##TheStrategyLab free chat room via the user name wrbtrader for anyone to do a real-time review (you must be a member of the chat room for a real-time review). Although the trades are posted by me and other users of WRB Analysis in real-time...this is not a signal calling chat room nor is this a live trading room that has a head trader telling you what to do. I'm the moderator (I keep the peace between members) and my own live trades are posted within 3.2 seconds on average after the trade confirmation in my broker trade execution platform via an auto script to minimize delays in posting of my trades. You can review today's price action trade journal about my trades (e.g. time, price entry, contract size, price exit, market analysis) as the trade traversed to its completion. In addition, sometimes I'll post real-time trading tips in the free ##TheStrategyLab chat room involving WRBs, WRB Hidden GAPs, Key Market Events (KME), WRB Zones, Reaction Highs/Lows, Contracting Volatility or Expanding Volatility...all key concepts from the WRB Analysis free study guide even though the free chat room is not design to be an education chat room because the education is only performed at the forums in the private threads.

Quote:
2017 has been the most difficult trading year since I've begun trading +25 years ago because successful trading involves more than just trade methods than any other trading year. This is a key concept many traders have difficulties in understanding. Some blame it on algorithms while I blame it on the inability to adapt, failure to backtest, failure to document trades (real-money or simulator) and underestimating how our environment influences our cognitive decision making while trading...all while trading in low volatility market conditions that statistically have the reputation for difficult trading.

Image ##TheStrategyLab Chat Room is free. The free chat room is not a signal calling trading room nor is it a live trading room with a head trader even though members of the chat room are posting their trades & market analysis in real-time. I do not mentor (never have) although I get many requests to do mentoring. There is education but only in members private threads at the forum involving members asking questions (help) about their own trading. Thus, the primary purpose of TheStrategyLab free chat room is for you to use as your trade journal so that you can use as valuable feedback about your own trading and for members to help each other...as in more eyes on the market. In addition, we highly recommend that you use the free chat room with a professional trade journal software like tradebench.com, edgewonk.com, tradervue.com, tradingdiarypro.com, stocktickr.com, journalsqrd.com, tradingdiary.pro, mxprofit.com or trademetria.com because they can provide you with the quantitative statistical analysis of your trading. You can then download your results and post them in your private thread at the forum.

Also, you can use TheStrategyLab free chat room to ask real-time WRB Analysis questions. Yet, please do not post your quantitative statistical analysis, brokerage statements in the free chat room. Instead, its highly recommended that you only post that particular information in your private thread for security reasons. Yet, if you want to post that type of information at another website, blog or chat room...that's your choice.

TheStrategyLab free chat room is on IRC via users request because the IRC servers are located in many different countries, software in many different languages, many different mobile apps, many different types of social media software can be used to log in along with IRC being easier to moderate via script codes when trouble makers, spammers and trolls show up. I'm the moderator of the free chat room via the user name wrbtrader. Thus, I keep the peace between members without hesitation in removing problematic traders so that members can peacefully post their market observations, trades, WRB Analysis commentary about the markets without being trolled or harassed.

TheStrategyLab free chat room is not for traders looking for someone to hold their hands and tell them when to buy or sell nor do we allow the free chat room to be used for mentoring because we do not offer a mentoring service. The purpose of TheStrategyLab is for you to post your real-time analysis or trades so that you can review as feedback for any trading day to provide valuable information about the results in your broker statements. If you join the free chat room and then you decide to not post any WRB Analysis about the price action or you decide to not post your trades or you decide to be silent (lurk without saying a word about today's markets)...you're not using the free chat room properly to help improve your trading.

In fact, we do not want silent (lurkers) traders to join the free chat room unless they are actively posting at the forum about their trading after the markets close. Access instructions for the free chat room @ http://www.thestrategylab.com/tsl/forum/viewforum.php?f=164

All of my real-time posted trades involves price action concepts from the WRB Analysis free study guide, Advance WRB Analysis Tutorial Chapters 4 - 12 and the Volatility Trading Report (VTR) trade signal strategies. Yet, I'm always backtesting new concepts of WRB Analysis, new trade entry rules, new trade management rules, new position size management rules before application in real money trades (small position size trades) to adapt to changed market conditions prior to large position size trades or sharing the new concepts with fee-base clients...living up to the name of my website.

Also, posted below for you to review are direct links to information about my price action trade methodology and trading plan (there's a difference between the two) that enables me to identify key trading areas in the price action that represent changes in supply/demand and volatility along with being able to exploit these changes via WRB Analysis (wide range body/bar analysis). I'm primarily a day trader because it suits my personal lifestyle but I do occasionally swing trade and position trade. Simply, my trade method is applicable for position trading, swing trading and day trading.

Market Context Summaries

The below summaries by Bloomberg, Briefing, Reuters and Yahoo! Finance helps me to do a quick review of the fundamentals, FED/ECB/BOE/IMF actions or any important global economic events (e.g. Eurozone, MarketWatch.com) that had an impact on today's price action in many trading instruments I monitor during the trading day. Simply, I'm a strong believer that key market events causes key changes in supply/demand and volatility resulting in trade opportunities (swing points and strong continuation price actions) that reach profit targets. Thus, I pay attention to these key market events, intermarket analysis (e.g. Forex EurUsd, EuroFX 6E futures, Gold GC futures, Light Crude Oil (WTI) CL & Brent Oil futures, Eurex DAX futures, Euronext FTSE100 futures, Emini ES futures, Emini RTY futures, Treasury ZB futures and U.S. Dollar Index futures) while using WRB Analysis from one trade to the next trade to give me the market context for price action trading before the appearance of my technical analysis trade signals. Therefore, I maintain these archives for easy review to allow me to understand what was happening on any given trading day in the past involving key market events to help better understand my trade decisions (day trading, swing trading, position trading)...something I can not get from my broker PnL statements alone. Further, most financial websites remove (delete) their archives after a few years to make room for new content. Therefore, I maintain my own archives of the news content so that I have it available for me when financial websites no longer archives their content.

Moving the Market

Stocks pull back from record highs as investors take profits, digest tax reform

Energy shares slide, moving in tandem with the price of crude oil

Biotechnology names underperform

Sector Watch
Strong: Utilities, Consumer Staples, Consumer Discretionary
Weak: Industrials, Energy, Materials, Health Care, Telecom Services

04:25PM ET

[BRIEFING.COM] Stocks slipped on Tuesday, retracing all of Monday's slim gains, as investors continued to digest the prospect of tax reform--which has been a stumbling block for the market as of late. The major stock indices modestly added to, and trimmed, their opening losses throughout the day, eventually settling near the top of their trading ranges.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq dropped 0.3%, while the S&P 500 and the Dow lost 0.2% and 0.1%, respectively.

Energy shares showed particular weakness as the price of crude oil continued to retreat from the two-year high it touched at the beginning of the prior week. West Texas Intermediate crude futures declined by 1.9%, settling at a price of $55.70 per barrel. The S&P 500's energy sector finished lower by 1.5%.

The materials (-1.1%) and telecom services (-1.4%) groups also finished with sizable losses, but most other sectors closed roughly in line with, or above, the broader market. The health care space (-0.4%) faced slightly heavier selling as biotechnology shares slipped to a three-month low; the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB 305.05, -5.03) lost 1.6%.

Meanwhile, industrial giant General Electric (GE 17.90, -1.12) tumbled another 5.9% following Monday's decision to slash its dividend by 50%.

However, there were a handful of groups that managed to move higher on Tuesday, including the utilities space, which added 1.2%. The rate-sensitive group benefited from increased buying in the Treasury market, which sent yields lower across the curve. The benchmark 10-yr yield dropped two basis points to 2.38%.

The consumer staples (+0.3%) and consumer discretionary (+0.1%) spaces also showed relative strength. Within the consumer discretionary group, Home Depot (HD 168.06, +2.71) climbed 1.6% after reporting better-than-expected earnings and revenues for the third quarter and raising its guidance for 2018.

Advance Auto (AAP 95.72, +13.44) and TJX (TJX 67.94, -2.82) also reported earnings on Tuesday--with mixed results. TJX shares slipped 4.0% after the apparel and home goods retailer missed sales estimates for the third quarter, while Advance Auto shares surged 16.3% after the auto parts retailer beat Q3 profit estimates and reaffirmed its same store sales guidance for fiscal year 2017.

In other corporate news, Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD 145.35, +28.10) jumped 24.0% following reports that private equity firm Roark Capital has made a bid to buy the casual dining and sports bar franchise for more than $150 per share.

From Washington, unconfirmed reports indicate that Senate leaders have decided to add a repeal of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate to the upper chamber's version of a tax reform bill. If true, this development may slow tax reform negotiations. On a related note, the House is expected to vote on its version of the bill this Thursday.

Elsewhere, equity indices in the Asia-Pacific region ended Tuesday on a mostly lower note, with Japan's Nikkei (unch) showing relative strength. The Euro Stoxx 50 (-0.5%) moved lower for the seventh session in a row as the euro climbed 1.1% against the U.S. dollar to 1.1794--its highest level in nearly three weeks.

Reviewing Tuesday's economic data, which was limited to the October Producer Price Index and the October NFIB Small Business Optimism Index:

Producer prices rose 0.4% in October (Briefing.com consensus +0.1%), while core producer prices also rose 0.4% (Briefing.com consensus +0.2%). Year over year, producer prices are up 2.8% and core producer prices have risen 2.4%.
The key takeaway from the report is that it will create some angst about possible pass-through effects on consumer prices and will help solidify expectations for a December rate hike from the Federal Reserve.
The NFIB Small Business Optimism Index increased to 103.8 in October from 103.0 in the September reading.

On Wednesday, investors will receive the weekly MBA Mortgage Applications Index at 7:00 ET, the Consumer Price Index for October (Briefing.com consensus +0.1%) at 8:30 ET, Retail Sales for October (Briefing.com consensus +0.1%) at 8:30 ET, November Empire Manufacturing (Briefing.com consensus 26.0) at 8:30 ET, and September Business Inventories (Briefing.com consensus 0.0%) at 10:00 ET.

[BRIEFING.COM] The major U.S. indices enter the final hour of action with losses between 0.2% and 0.4%.

02:30PM ET

[BRIEFING.COM] The tech-heavy Nasdaq (-0.5%) continues to trade a step behind the benchmark S&P 500 (-0.3%).

Biotechnology names have struggled today, sending the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB 302.19, -7.89) to a three-month low. Heavyweights like Gilead Sciences (GILD 70.38, -2.48), Celgene (CELG 98.97, -2.17), and Biogen (BIIB 308.30, -7.41) show losses between 2.1% and 3.3%. Meanwhile, the IBB is lower by 2.5%.

The health care sector, which houses biotechnology names, is still trading in second place on the 2017 sector leaderboard, as it has done for the vast majority of the year, with a year-to-date gain of 17.2%. However, that gain has been trimmed noticeably since hitting a peak in late October, when the group was up 21.5% for the year.

Dow: -52.23… | Nasdaq: -31.71… | S&P: -8.55…

NASDAQ Adv/Dec 1172/1617. …NYSE Adv/Dec 1201/1704.

01:55PM ET

[BRIEFING.COM] The major averages continue to trade modestly lower, holding losses between 0.2% and 0.5%.

Nine sectors are trading in the red this afternoon--materials (-1.3%), energy (-1.2%), telecom services (-1.2%), health care (-0.5%), industrials (-0.4%), financials (-0.3%), technology (-0.2%), consumer discretionary (-0.1%), and real estate (-0.1%)--while two are trading in the green--consumer staples (+0.3%) and utilities (+0.9%).

In the bond market, U.S. Treasuries are rallying today, sending yields lower across the curve. The yield on the 2-yr Treasury note is down one basis point at 1.68%, while the benchmark 10-yr yield is down two basis points at 2.38%.

Dow: -53.15… | Nasdaq: -31.83… | S&P: -8.17…

01:35PM ET

[BRIEFING.COM] After seeing some notable selling pressure heading into our last update, the major U.S. indices saw some small buying activity at the top of the hour, but still sport modest losses at this time.

A look inside the Dow Jones Industrial Average shows that General Electric (GE 17.60, -1.42), DowDuPont (DWDP 68.51, -1.57), & Walt Disney (DIS 103.18, -1.56) are underperforming. GE is again weighing on the Dow as shares see a continuation from yesterday's meaningful selloff after being downgraded this morning to Sector Perform at RBC Capital Mkts.

Conversely, Coca-Cola (KO 47.32, +0.60) is the best-performing Dow component after shares were upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo.

As stocks erase yesterday's gains, the DJIA is now down 0.17% this week.

Dow: -59.17… | Nasdaq: -35.56… | S&P: -9.61…

NASDAQ Adv/Dec 1129/1674. …NYSE Adv/Dec 1168/1748.

01:05PM ET

[BRIEFING.COM] Stocks have moved away from record highs today, but losses have been fairly modest for the most part. The major U.S. indices are down between 0.3% and 0.6%, which is slightly below where they opened today's session. The tech-heavy Nasdaq (-0.6%) underperforms as biotechnology shares show relative weakness.

The energy (-1.1%), materials (-1.0%), and telecom services (-1.0%) sectors have paced today's retreat. Within the materials space, mining giant Freeport-McMoRan (FCX 13.66, -0.77) has lost 5.4%, thanks in large part to a 1.8% decline in the price of copper, which currently trades at $3.06/lb. FCX is one of the world's largest copper producers.

Meanwhile, energy shares have moved in tandem with the price of crude oil, which has continued retreating from the two-year high it touched last week; WTI crude futures are down 2.1% at $55.58/bbl. The American Petroleum Institute will release its weekly crude inventory report this evening at 16:30 ET.

Industrials are also struggling as General Electric (GE 17.65, -1.37) slides another 7.2% following yesterday's decision to cut its dividend by 50%.

On a positive note, the rate-sensitive utilities space has climbed 0.9%, moving into third place in this year's sector standings (+16.3% YTD). The group has benefited from increased buying interest in U.S. sovereign debt, which has sent Treasury yields lower across the curve; the yield on the benchmark 10-yr Treasury note is down two basis points at 2.38%.

The consumer staples (+0.3%) and consumer discretionary (unch) sectors also trade ahead of the broader market.

In earnings news, Home Depot (HD 167.29, +1.94) is up 1.2% after reporting better-than-expected earnings and revenues and issuing above-consensus guidance for fiscal year 2018. Advance Auto (AAP 97.02, +14.73) is also higher, jumping 18.8%, after beating earnings estimates, while TJX (TJX 67.00, -3.76) has dropped 5.3% after missing revenue estimates.

Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD 145.77, +28.52) has surged 24.3% following reports that Roark Capital has made a bid to buy the company for more than $150/share.

In Washington, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) announced that he intends to offer an amendment to the GOP's tax reform bill that would repeal the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate. His decision may prove to be an obstacle in tax overhaul negotiations, which Republicans are trying to wrap up soon in order to put a tax reform bill on the president's desk by the end of the year.

Elsewhere, the Euro Stoxx 50 (-0.5%) declined for the seventh session in a row, while stock indices in the Asia-Pacific region also settled modestly lower.

Reviewing Tuesday's economic data, which was limited to the October Producer Price Index and the October NFIB Small Business Optimism Index:

Producer prices rose 0.4% in October (Briefing.com consensus +0.1%), while core producer prices also rose 0.4% (Briefing.com consensus +0.2%). Year-over-year, producer prices are up 2.8% and core producer prices have risen 2.4%.
The key takeaway from the report is that it will create some angst about possible pass-through effects on consumer prices and will help solidify expectations for a December rate hike from the Federal Reserve.
The NFIB Small Business Optimism Index increased to 103.8 in October from 103.0 in the prior reading.

Dow: -66.10… | Nasdaq: -41.96… | S&P: -10.96…

NASDAQ Adv/Dec 1049/1739. …NYSE Adv/Dec 1090/1809.

12:25PM ET

[BRIEFING.COM] Equity indices continue to trade near their recent levels. The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq are down 0.3% apiece, while the Dow shows a loss of 0.2%.

Soft drink names like Coca-Cola (KO 47.28, +0.55) and PepsiCo (PEP 115.53, +1.50) are outperforming today, sporting gains of 1.2% and 1.4%, respectively, and helping the S&P 500's consumer staples sector (+0.2%) trade near the top of the sector standings. Coca-Cola shares were upgraded to 'Outperform' from 'Market Perform' at Wells Fargo this morning.

However, nine of the ten remaining sectors are trading in negative territory this afternoon. Most groups hold losses of no more than 0.4%, but the energy (-1.3%), materials (-0.9%), and telecom services (-1.1%) spaces exhibit relative weakness.

Elsewhere, European equity markets finished Tuesday in the red, sending the Euro Stoxx 50 (-0.5%) lower for the seventh session in a row.

12:00PM ET

[BRIEFING.COM] Equity indices have not changed since the last update.

The rate-sensitive utilities space (+0.9%) is trading solidly higher today, moving into third place in this year's sector standings (+16.2% YTD). The group has benefited from increased buying interest in U.S. sovereign debt, which has sent Treasury yields lower across the curve. The yield on the benchmark 10-yr Treasury note is down two basis points at 2.38%.

Meanwhile, the U.S. dollar has tumble 0.9% against the euro to 1.1770 following a big batch of European economic data, including better-than-expected third quarter GDP readings from Germany (+0.8% QoQ actual vs +0.6% QoQ consensus) and Italy (+0.5% QoQ actual vs +0.4% QoQ consensus). Eurozone Q3 GDP grew 0.6% quarter-over-quarter, as expected.

Also of note, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi spoke at a conference in Zurich, noting that forward guidance is now a full policy instrument.

11:25AM ET

[BRIEFING.COM] The major U.S. indices continue to trade modestly lower, holding losses of around 0.3% apiece.

Retail heavyweight TJX (TJX 67.55, -3.21) is down 4.7% this morning after reporting worse-than-expected revenues for the third quarter. Conversely, Advance Auto Parts (AAP 98.18, +15.88) has surged 19.2% after beating Q3 earnings estimates and reaffirming its same store sales guidance for fiscal year 2017. AAP shares are hovering at a one-month high.

In general, retailers trade slightly behind the broader market, evidenced by the 0.4% decrease in the SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT 39.56, -0.14). Looking ahead, Target (TGT 59.65, -0.13), L Brands (LB 48.80, -0.15), and The Children's Place (PLCE 113.45, +0.55) will report earnings on Wednesday.

[BRIEFING.COM] Equities are hovering a step below their flat lines this morning. The S&P 500, the Dow, and the Nasdaq hold losses of 0.2% apiece.

The majority of sectors trade roughly in line with the broader market, but the energy (-0.9%), materials (-0.9%), and telecom services (-1.1%) groups show relative weakness. A decrease in the price of crude oil has weighed heavily on energy shares, which typically move in tandem with the price of the commodity. WTI crude futures are down 2.0% at $55.61/bbl.

Meanwhile, the utilities space (+0.5%) is trading at the top of the sector standings, followed from a distance by the consumer staples space (unch). Within the consumer staples group, General Mills (GIS 53.98, +1.01) is up 1.9% after reaffirming its financial targets for fiscal year 2018.

The U.S. equity market continues to drift near record high levels, but has struggled since last Thursday when the Senate released its version of a tax reform bill, which differed from the House's version in some key areas.

On the data front, investors will receive both the October Producer Price Index (Briefing.com consensus +0.1%) and core Producer Price Index (Briefing.com consensus +0.2%), which excludes food and energy, at 8:30 ET.

[BRIEFING.COM] Stocks crept toward record highs on Monday, ending a two-session losing streak. The S&P 500, the Nasdaq, and the Dow added 0.1% apiece.

With the third quarter earnings season nearly in the books, investors continued to chew on the prospect of tax reform. The House is expected to vote on its version of a tax reform bill this Thursday, but, even if the bill passes, the lower chamber still has some work to do in order to reconcile its version with the version that the Senate unveiled last week.

The two versions must match and be approved by both chambers in order to put the bill on President Trump's desk.

The S&P 500's utilities sector was the best-performing group on Monday, finishing with a gain of 1.2%, followed from a distance by the consumer staples (+0.6%), materials (+0.5%), and consumer discretionary (+0.3%) groups. In total, seven of the eleven sectors settled in positive territory, but General Electric (GE 19.02, -1.47) kept the upbeat sentiment in check.

GE shares dropped 7.2%, hitting a fresh five-year low, after the company cut its dividend by half and dialed back its profit forecast for 2018. The dividend cut was expected by many and was deemed necessary by new CEO John Flannery in order to restructure the 125-year-old industrial giant. Following Monday's decline, GE shares are down 39.8% year to date.

In other corporate news, toymaker Mattel (MAT 17.64, +3.02) spiked 20.7% following weekend reports that rival Hasbro (HAS 96.83, +5.38) has made a bid to acquire the company; Hasbro shares also moved higher, adding 5.9%. The reported bid comes two weeks after a disappointing third quarter earnings report for Mattel and at a time when MAT shares are challenging their lowest level since 2009.

Meanwhile, pharmacy retailers like CVS Health (CVS 71.48, +0.49) breathed a sigh of relief after Amazon (AMZN 1129.17, +3.82) announced that it plans to use recently obtained state pharmacy licenses to sell medical devices and supplies, not prescriptions--as was previously rumored. CVS shares climbed 0.7%.

In the bond market, U.S. Treasuries kicked off the week on a mostly flat note, with the yield on the benchmark 10-yr Treasury note finishing unchanged at 2.40%. Shorter-dated issues showed relative weakness, however, leaving the 2-yr yield higher by three basis points at 1.69%.

Elsewhere, the Euro Stoxx 50 (-0.4%) moved lower for the sixth session in a row, while equities in the Asia-Pacific region ended Monday mixed with Japan's Nikkei (-1.3%) showing relative weakness. In the UK, 40 Conservative members of parliament have reportedly agreed to sign a letter of no confidence against Prime Minister Theresa May--just eight members shy of forcing a leadership vote.

Reviewing Monday's economic data, which was limited to the October Treasury Budget:

The Treasury Budget for October showed a deficit of $63.2 billion versus a deficit of $45.8 billion for October 2016.
The Treasury Budget data is not seasonally adjusted, so the October deficit cannot be compared to the $8.0 billion surplus registered in September.

On Tuesday, investors will receive just one notable economic report--the Producer Price Index for October (Briefing.com consensus +0.1%)--which will be released at 8:30 ET. The NFIB Small Business Optimism Index for October will cross the wires at 7:00 ET, but is not expected to have much impact on the financial markets.

Nasdaq Composite +25.5% YTD
Dow Jones Industrial Average +18.6% YTD
