Weekly Wrap-Up

2010-02-21T13:13:09-05:00February 21, 2010|

Not the greatest week for the bears by any stretch of the imagination. I am however, thankful that the week was only four days long. Transaction-wise it was my busiest week of the year. I was stopped out of two positions, while initiating four others. The positions I was stopped [...]

Weekly Wrap-Up

2023-03-04T09:47:15-05:00February 6, 2010|

What a wild week we had! Started the first two days taking back some of the losses from prior weeks, and while the market was dead on Wednesday, on Thursday, we got such strong-downside action, the likes of which we haven’t seen in quite some time. Then to cap it [...]

The first week of the year is in the books, and by many standards the most important week. I really have no opinion on the matter, I approach every week the same, namely, to attempt to make the value of my portfolio at the end of one week more than [...]

Market Reversal In the Cards for Stocks

2009-10-21T23:09:26-04:00October 21, 2009|

I enjoyed seeing the unpredictable occur in the market today – for far too long the market has been making a nonsensical climb to new highs, and when there is a sell-off by mid-afternoon, any bearish sentiment has been watered-down by the buyers on the dip. So for once, it [...]

Another Week of Lessons and Observations

2023-03-04T09:47:12-05:00August 8, 2009|

Overall, it was a pretty quiet week until Friday hit. The jobs number showed that the job losses may be starting to slow a bit (but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are finding new jobs), and also exceeded analyst expectations – which allowed for the market to act in [...]
