  • Best Ways To Invest -- What's Your Opinion? A Place To Share Ideas! #78 [View instapost]
    In my sector trading portfolio...I have been I been long Technology (vs Energy) all this year....Long Health Care(vs Financials) all this year...Long Consumer Discretionary (vs Consumer Staples)
    that one has been in effect since mid February.....this is a mechanical trading system based solely on technicals....no fundamentals.... a coming recession signal would override all of this falderall....a non recessionary correction would likely cause a leveraging up of these positions

    A calendar year with at least one 5 to 7% correction (on a closing basis)would be considered
    a normal year....we still have not had 5% correction in the S&P 500 this year....we still have not had a 5% correction in the S&P 400...we have had one 5% correction in the S&P 600 ( with this index (small cap) you get the greatest volatility in fact a 10%
    correction would be considered normal for this index).......We will likely get a correction ( 5-7%) of this sort this year and it will be quick. We will not go into a recession this year or next....just one opinion....

    Just my 2 cents...

    As long as my indicators tell we are not heading into a recession I will buy a correction in price....right now none are negative. Sorry I do not want to divulge the formulas for those indicators if that is unacceptable. I understand.


    Best of Luck,

  • Oil: After The Fire, The Fire Still Burns [View article]
    "Conditions may even deteriorate to the point where the spillover effects may begin to be felt far more meaningfully across the broader market including high yield bonds (NYSEARCA:JNK)."

    if you look at the holdings in JNK you will see a lot of these energy bonds have been already been marked down substantially and some of them that I saw in their
    portfolio back in December have been blown out....

    Remember mark to market,,,

    From November 21,2014 to December 16.2014

    XLE dropped 16.3%...JNK dropped 5.6%

    From 4/29/15 to Friday's close

    XLE dropped 12.1% JNK dropped 1.9%.......(dividends and interest reinvested)

    Since JNK's low made on December 16,2014..as of Friday it was up +5.44%...XLE is down -.21%
