TREX, YY, NSM, OCN, FLT, URI, EOG, FOSL An interesting side note:  I do not look at fundamentals as I let others services filter that for me as I simply do not have the time.  Generally, these are high growth stocks with strong fundamentals that institutional investors have shown a strong proclivity to be purchasing.

First, let me say this…all of my positions have sold off recently.  I am 100% cash at the moment.  I haven’t posted recently because, frankly, I’ve been befuddled.  Leading stocks are treading water.  Or they’re shortable.  And yet my fractal analysis of the Dow tells me that it’s going to go up…for quite some time…even […]

CHUY, URI, ANGI, CELG, RLGY, SNTS, CRM, EXPE, MHO, GILD and the others that never sold off are:  FLT, LNKD (double my starter position), WPC.  I sold VMED at around $47 for a nice quick profit near the acquisition price.  I’m 98% in equities in my trading account.  (And I’m thinking about switching my 401K […]

The Dow crossed The Big Red Line today on strong volume (and also happened to make an all-time high).  It’ll likely keep moving straight up from here to around 15,500 in a month or two and then tack sideways or correct sharply about 5%.  Leading stocks are also breaking out…so many that I’m going to […]

Odds are good for a rally tomorrow.  We broke the lower ~3 week trend line on the included 2 hour chart, which normally might mean that the market is going to drop to the next trend line.  But, the pattern for the last two weeks has been setting up as a long “expanding flat” which […]

This small market pull back has not been fun.  I was up quite nicely…the problem with leading growth stocks is that they are highly volatile, and they do truly lead the market.  So even with my pretty graphs, this is not easy.  Most of my positions have sold off at the tight stops.  My first […]

The market still looks good for the intermediate term especially with the debt ceiling debate likely to be pushed to May, so no panic will ensue shortly.  Weird how the market anticipated this cleverness on the Republicans part.  Although the drop in AAPL could cause some heartburn tomorrow.  And this does cause me some concern, […]

Bought into ARMH, AIRM, LMCA and LNKD just now.  I think these are still buyable today with relatively tight stops.  I’m holding on to my Put on MLNX but tightened my stop to my purchase price.  Still holding MHO and RAX, making about 30% of my trading account long with one small short position (but […]

Leading stocks are breaking out…almost too many good charts to choose from.  But with the Debt debate set to go crazy in Feb, I’m pretty wary of this lasting very long.  So I’m going to enter a bunch of positions tomorrow, but again with tight stops. Update on my December trades:  all but three positions […]

So…I finally took my dark colored glasses off…having missed a really nice run up that I recognized, but was so scared that the world was ending that I couldn’t pull the trigger.  Now I think this rally is over-extended, so I’m waiting for a pull back.  But, it just might not, although many many top […]
