  • Fake bear trap [View instapost]
    I'm keeping a close on 9810. If we close above again, it will prove a consolidation to propel the maket to a new high.

  • Sell into today's retail rally [View instapost]
    The data later this might be bad... and these retailers havehad a tremndous run. M, for example has rallied from 6/share. I'm locking profits until proven otherwise.

  • Johnson & Johnson: Well Positioned for Growth [View article]
    It's a great accumulate at these levels... I would buy shares and hedge by writing Nov strike 60 calls which are paying a premium of 1.45/contract. This is a great premium. Oct strike 60 calls are also juicy at .80, considering that there is only 2 weeks remaining for options to expire.

    I don't short much, especially in an uptrend. I like shorting on weakness. I use a prime broker serivce at Schwab.

  • MACD is bearish on all indexes. [View instapost]
    Just becuase the market is generally selling, it does not mean that you cannot be selecitve in going long or short certain ETFs or stocks. for example, I have both long and short postions on M hedged with different call strikes.

  • YHOO: Bought for an intraday bounce or a swing trade. [View instapost]
    Alice, even 15.20, it's a good entry. I truly don't understand the selling. It's overdone.

    Not interest in penny stocks that can be easily manipulated.
