  • Sell the news? As word leaks out about the outlines of an agreement, Bill Gross says a fiscal cliff deal is no cause for celebration. Capital gains, dividend, and income taxes are all headed higher, with maybe a wealth tax too. "Reduce risk." Perhaps. Tax hikes aren't fun, but markets seem to hate uncertainty even more. [View news story]
    "Wealth tax"... where'd you come up with that? Btw, check the Constitution, its prohibited.

  • Don't Fall for the 'Defensive Portfolio' Hype [View article]
    Well done. Agree. When support breaks in an uoptrend (like now IF the SPX 50ma does not hold this week) we go to Cash and wait until the carnage is over. No reason to take a beating. Cash does not go down.

    Gratian: Understood. Here is a free video on Dow Theory that may be of interest. It explains why we don't buy and hold, even though we are long termfundamnetal based investors, not traders. Took profits on NFLX in my Cash account, not a long term investor in NFLX but some of our club members like it an I cover it for them. www.youtube.com/user/D...

    I sure hope you are not in "hold an hope" mold now. It can be a long way down. We got to largely cash Feb 18 (check our free videos). We reiterated risk March 1 (check our free video) We saved many dollars. Many stocks/ETFs sitting below 50ema. Sitting on pile of Cash with buy list. What we invest is decided on fundamentls, but when is decided by technicals. A better way...can't just sit there and take the beating. Don't you guys remember May 6? Flash crash. The risk has NOT been fixed. 70% of volumne is HFTs. When they pull their bids, you are toast...trap door down. Are we heade down now? Dunno. But risk is to downside. No doubt.

    Could not disagree more. A stop loss does just that. We take them every day. But we stalk, find a cheaper entry and reset the dynamics. A stop loss means you were wrong at the price at which you bought. Our stop losses are almost alwasy to stop the loss of profits as we enter fundamentally strong stocks on a techncial basis and move up our stops to keep the profits. We then rebuy lower at support. A better way, with better end results.

  • China Small Cap Stocks: Should You Buy, Sell, Or Simply Stay Away? [View article]
    Caution with all these. The "scare' is legitimate. We like only mid to big caps, SINA SOHU BIDU and one micro cap SPRD. We've linked your article from our free site...to highlight the danger of these stocks to our readers. TOO many good US stocks and the large cap China stocks we noted above to mess with these. investortradestocksfre.../
