  • Interesting Times For All Commodities And Investments!! THE CHALLENGE ,PART 6.. [View instapost]
    Thanks Crade. Trying to keep my Challenge Posts on this page for simplicity though, as those other blogs are discussions of many things.
    These are my significant YTD Trades. There are several with targets far enough ahead of today's price to still be worth buying. I must sell my JAZZ tomorrow though at Market as it has hit it's Time Target. Bought in Dec at ~164 Closed today at ~179 but target price was ~185. Oh Well, I'll take what I get. I'm down to only 200 shares of it anyway.
    TYL 200 Buy $119.5500 3/12/2015 584 shares Target $127.00
    SNDK 300 Buy $84.2100 3/12/2015 Target $92.08
    FL -300 Sell $61.7400 3/10/2015
    KEX -125 Sell $78.8400 2/17/2015
    MIDD 150 Buy $104.9600 2/16/2015 Target $116.00
    TYL 150 Buy $115.4600 2/16/2015
    FL 300 Buy $53.9400 2/16/2015
    TRIP -300 Sell $81.8600 2/13/2015
    TRIP 300 Buy $71.2800 2/4/2015
    FTNT 300 Buy $31.0300 1/20/2015 Target $35.58
    KEX 125 Buy $77.4800 1/20/2015
    IP 180 Buy $54.0800 1/20/2015 Target $61.65

  • Global Economic Weakness Overshadowing Central Bank Moves [View article]
    @Tuf-Gong
    Generally, most people who buy small quantities of gold, such as a few ounces, do so at Jewlery stores and Coin Shops. Expect to pay up to a 10% premium over spot when buying there. You can also buy from companies like Monaco, but I have no idea of their pricing. As always, the more you buy, the better deal you can get. I personally prefer silver as my PM of choice as you can buy it easier and with a smaller markup generally. Right now I have perhaps 1% in PM with no plans to buy either PMs , Mining stocks, nor the Metals ETFs. I am making quite a bit more in other stocks. I follow Peter F Way a lot, and have had considerable success using data he publishes here and at his site. That is just my strategy, To each their own.

    Update on OW's account
    The good news is that I again have had the time to tend to this account.

    I sold FL at a>12% gain and have orders in for SNDK and TYL.
    We are past the halfway point now and I think that I have pretty well proven that in almost all market conditions, following the Market Maker analysis Strategy developed by Peter F Way has proven to be a reliable way of generating wealth. While I still lag behind John and his wife, the method I am using is clear and reproducible. It takes no excessive DD beyond some common sense. Again, I have no Financial nor material interest in Blockdesk.com, which is the source of my investment strategy. I am simply a trader who has been following Peter for >3 years, and have come to trust his methodology.
    Anyone with questions may message me, or message Info@blockdesk.com.

    My top 2 picks for this week are (FL) and (TYL).
    Secondaries are (AVGO) and (MIDD).
    The last 2 are already stretched kinda thin so awaiting mild pullbacks if I can get them.

    Personally, I plan on moving a bit further south to Silver City NM. in the next few years. It is quite far south, but high elevation. Very dry climate, but in a National Forest. You get all 4 seasons, but both summers and winters are mild. With the dry climate comes relief from the arthritis from old war wounds.
    Also, It is not too awfully far from Las Cruces, Lordsburg, and even Tucson. Would make visiting my grandson in Phoenix about a 4-5 hour drive or less.
    Winters reach low 20s a few times, Summers break 90 a few times. Even trout fishing not far away.

  • Top-Ranked ETF Wealth-Builders Now [View article]

    I have a couple blogs up as well which might be of some help in picking out the "Best of the Best". One thing I do is make sure a stock stays in the Buy Range for more than 1 day. I did an extensive study of doing this-Posted at:

    As for "Ranking" these, I especially want to express that my studies have shown that the "Cred Ratio" is also an important factor in ranking. Certainly not the only one, but I personally have made the best money on .9 or greater Cred Ratios. I hope to add that to my blog soon.

    Taking an afternoon off while the wife sleeps so I thought I would drop by. It looks like I called my "Bottom" at about the right level, but a tad early. We had 1 week up, then 1 week back down to where we started, no last week was up and futures are pointing up for perhaps a month.
    My stocks have been hitting Sell Targets, but I have not had time to buy. Sitting at"

  • Why The Apple Bears Have Got It Wrong And Here Is The Proof [View article]
    If you are deducting Amortization and CapEx, you are "double Dipping" as Amortization is how they deduct the CapEx over it's assigned lifespan. By that I mean that say an X-Ray machine may be bought for 100k, then amortized in equal payments over 7 years as allowed in the government book that sets timetables of equipment lifespans. US Tax Code sets the amortization time for virtually all buildings and equipment.
    Using Dep and Amort prevents companies from taking writeoffs in unusual ways such as "do they book it when the PO is cut? or upon delivery?".
    You do not want to deduct it 2x.

  • Interesting Times For All Commodities And Investments!! Chapter 103..... [View instapost]
    Geesh. I get busy in RL and 5 pages get filled before I can get a day free. The last page I had monitored was like 98.
    Anyway:
    My wife's Illness has kept me from trading in my "Virtual" portfolio, and to a great extent even in my RLP.
    I finally have some time this week to do a little research, so will be making trades in the "Virtual" portfolio tomorrow, and my RLP this week as well. By ignoring my RLP I let 1 stock cost me just under 2K. I should have just sold all my RLP stuff at Year End until I can do DD again.
    I still cannot understand why the US market is so deep in the Tank right now. Companies that have zero overseas or energy exposure have dropped up to 35-40%.
    Anyway, I'm calling a bottom this week in the DOW and Russel. The NASDQ is just too silly to even watch anymore.
    If the Russel does bottom, that will be the best buy signal of the last 3 months.

    As I will state in the main string, My wife's Illness has kept me from trading in my "test" portfolio, and to a great extent even in my RLP.

  • Strong Trouble Signal On DJIA By Market-Makers [View article]

    I think what you are seeing as yellow is just the way red looks on a blue background in his Graphics.
    Please correct me if I am wrong.
    Usually Peter wants to see 3 years of trades (~756) or more than 20 experiences over >3 years to get out of the "Red Zone".

    It certainly looks like it has more upside ahead right now. More than can be said for most stocks this month.
