MARKET IS ASSUMING IRMA HITTING FLORIDA HARD IS A CERTAINTY, HIGHEST GROWTH FORECAST FOR EUROPE SINCE 2007, BUYING IN GOLD ON ECB

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Irma

The market is assuming that hurricane Irma hitting Florida is a certainty.  It is forecast that Irma will hit Miami by Sunday afternoon.

Stocks being hit hard include the following:

The following stocks and ETFs are being bought.

  • Generator manufacturer
  • Home improvement stores such as and .
  • Rental car companies such as and .
  • RV manufacturers such as and .
  • Building materials such as and
  • Various energy stocks and oil.  ETFs that are moving are and .

From our sources, here is the insight.  Contrary to what the media is saying, there is still a fair probability that Irma may not hit Florida hard.  If this comes true, then on Monday many of the moves being seen will reverse and there may be several trading opportunities.  The problem with buying or short selling these stocks or ETFs now is that the storm is not projected to hit until Sunday when the markets are closed.  On Monday these stocks can gap up or down potentially either making a lot of money or losing a lot of money.  There is not a good way to control the risk.

ECB has raised forecast for Europe to 2.2%.  This is the highest growth rate since 2007.  Here is the other important information coming out of ECB:

API data showed a build of 2.79 million barrels in line with the consensus.

EIA data will be released today.

Technical Patterns
