\We are basing money management on a hypothetical

$ 100,000 and are using a total of

$ 78,031 for the 21 open stock positions. There are five option long positions requiring

$ 5,192 totaling

$ 83,223 leaving and

$ 16,777 in cash.

These figures are approximate and there might be errors.

We have not counted the dividends received from Apple, JP Morgan, BSBR ( Brazil ), Santander, Blue Capital Reinsurance and others.

Blue Capital issued a special extra dividend of $ 0.66 per share which enabled us to reduce our cost

by that amount. In addition it pays about 7% per year in regular dividends.

We do not count commission costs and all trading once again is hypothetical.

Executions that have occurred at or near the open or close of trading sometimes vary from our

actual numbers. For example, when something opens down and it is through our price, we take the next trade whether it is an uptick or continues lower. This sometimes results in a 50% trade that is slightly above or below the exact number...

Market Strategies Economic Data

Retail sales declined 0.6% in February after declining 0.8% in January. The Briefing.com Consensus expected retail sales to increase 0.4%. Excluding motor vehicle sales, retail sales declined 0.1% in February after declining 1.1% in January. The Briefing.com Consensus expected these sales to increase 0.6%. Some may blame the inclement weather in the Northeast as a contributing factor. In our opinion, the decline in sales is simply a result of consumers continuing their savings trend and not spending.

Motor vehicle sales were among the hardest hit sectors which fell 2.5% in February after increasing 0.5% in January. The decline was in-line with the weakness in the motor vehicle manufacturer reports that were released earlier in the month. Building material and supply stores (-2.3%), general merchandise stores (-1.2%), and miscellaneous store retailers (-1.2%) saw large drops in sales in February.

Market Strategies Cycles

Late last month, we noted March's historical tendency towards increased volatility. On its historically bullish first trading day, March did deliver as the DJIA and S&P 500 soared to fresh all-time highs and NASDAQ closed over 5000 for the first time in nearly 15 years. Since then, the market has struggled as incoming economic data has been firm enough to fan the fears of interest rate hikes sooner, rather than later. The prospect of higher interest rates here in the U.S. and the ECB commencing QE have caused the U.S. dollar to soar to its highest level in over a decade. The surging U.S. dollar is in turn pressuring commodity prices and earnings estimates for large multi-national corporations. The net effect has driven DJIA and S&P 500 below December's highs and their respective 50-day moving averages. NASDAQ has fared better, but still has given back roughly half of its gains since breaking out in mid-February

The market's recent weakness has done some technical damage. Stochastic, relative strength and MACD indicators are all negative. DJIA and S&P 500 are once again negative (or near) year-to-date. Their breakouts have failed. NASDAQ is a bright spot though. It has held its 50-day moving average and the breakout thus far. The next key level of support for DJIA and S&P 500 is their 200-day moving averages. For DJIA this is just slightly more than 17,250 and S&P 500 is 2002.

Next week is options expiration week. March is the first time of the year when stock options, index options, index futures, and single-stock/ETF futures all expire at the same time. This event is often referred to as Quadruple Witching or as it is shown in the Stock Trader's Almanac (page 78), Triple Witching. Other Triple Witching months include June, September and December. Besides being the first Triple Witching event of 2015, next week is also unique as it hosts a three-consecutive-day bullish cluster on March 16 through the 18. This cluster is frequently responsible for respectable gains during options expiration week.

Further compounding the pain during the week after March options expiration is end-of-quarter weakness. Over the past 25 years the DJIA and S&P 500 have declined 17 times and advanced 8 with an average loss approaching 1.0% near the end of March. Excluding advancing years, the average decline is right around 1.6% for DJIA and S&P 500. End-of-quarter portfolio restructuring likely plays a role as managers lock in any gains and establish positions for the next quarter. These declines can begin on either the fourth-to-last trading day or the third.

As you can see, the second half of March has the potential to cause pain. However, the market has proven especially resilient in recent months. Plunging crude oil and a surging dollar have not ended the fourth longest bull market in history. The U.S. is still one of the healthiest developed markets out there. Any second-half March weakness would likely reset previously stretched sentiment and technical indicators, paving the path to additional new all-time highs in April, the top-performing DJIA month since 1950 and the last month of the "Best Six Months," as the market makes its way toward our projected first-half highs around DJIA 19000, S&P 500 2250 and NASDAQ 5000 (either side of its previous all-time high).
