  • New FREE Service + November 2012 Monthly Wrap-Up: FB, LNKD, AAPL, LVS, SPY 0 comments
    Dec 2, 2012 8:28 PM | about stocks: FB, LNKD, AAPL, LVS, SPY

    First of all, I'm going to introduce a new service.

    I'm getting questions about services for stock trades vs. options trades. Originally, my idea was that people who trade stocks only can also use our services as the underlying stock price for our options trades are posted in our trade alerts. But, it seems like it's too complicated to follow. So, I'm going to try something new. I'm going to start a pure stock trade service, FREE for now until the end of the year. The trade ideas in this service will definitely be slower and for longer terms. I will aim to have about 5 to 10 trade ideas per month.

    If you're interested, you should email our admin by going to our "Contact Us" page:
    http://www.myhappytrading.com/about/contact.aspx (click here)

    If you don't have an Username, please first sign up for a FREE account. Under the "Subject", please enter "FREE Stock Trade". Our admin will set you up if your login info is correct. Then, just sit back and wait for the trade alerts in your email.

    Now, on to the monthly wrap-up.

    November was a volatile month, and its shape was a big "V"! It dropped quickly after the election on the 6th, as the focus suddenly shifted to the "fiscal cliff". AAPL was the big story. If fell almost down to $500, but, bounced $80 off of the low. Trading at the beginning of the month was basically flat; Keeping some SPY puts served us well. Jumping the gun to call a bottom on AAPL was not a good idea, but, once it did bounce, we captured a few triple-digit gainers. FB had a great month and trading it on the longside proved to be rewarding.

    Here are the closed trades for the month:

    The market is still being held hostage by the "fiscal cliff", although buyers seem to be itching to pull the trigger and some already have. On Sunday morning, the "political drama" seemed to be still going, although Geithner was bold to predict that Republican politicians will accept the tax hike for the top 2% earners. We'll wait and see how things will evolve in the coming week.

    I'll be right be in a couple of hours with next week's Market Forecast!
