Faltering Friday – Fundamentals Finally Matter

Posted on the 24 January 2014 by Phil's Stock World @philstockworld

We had a nice $1,000 per contract gain on the oil Futures (/CL) this morning, as I said to our Members at 4:15am in the Chat Room:  "The Dollar has found a floor at 80.50 and is back at 80.60 at the moment.  Oil is not going to like that and of course we still like the short at $97.50 on /CL."  We just got out of the trade, taking the money and running at the likely bounce line and now we're looking to re-load at $97 or a cross back below $96.75, but the easy money for the day has already been made.

Speaking of out of control inflation – I told you so on Argentina, back on Dec 13th but, like many of the Fundamental concepts we point out at PSW, it takes a little time before the retail investors catch on to our investing premises.  Today, Argentina is on top of every fund manager's agenda as the Government was forced…
