Big day yesterday, things were quiet and then at 1:00 pm the fireworks went off. The most interesting thing about yesterday was the fact that the SP500 (up huge), BONDS, GOLD, and Volatility were all up. A rare event. At certain times, breadth becomes so hot in the short term that it actually becomes a negative, we are there now. And to reiterate what I’ve been saying over the last couple of days; the longer your timeframe, the more irrelevant breadth, and sentiment measures are. Aggressively putting on new trades is a little tough.

Here is another study, old but still a good one to know. From Quantifiable edges.

Below is my list for the day, I have an interest in these stocks if and only if they go through yesterday’s high. IPO’s have started to percolate, I will keep a very close eye on TPIC today.

We live in a world in which we are bombarded with information, tweets, blogs, etc., content is the new salesman, content is the new marketing, content is the new networking. With information being so readily available, bloggers try to differentiate themselves with their writing skills, volume, and consistency, putting out blog posts to meet quotas. We are seeking to stand out from the crowd by showing performance, by taking all the information and seeking alpha, that’s the sole purpose of the blog. It won’t always be pretty; it’s never easy, and performance is spotty, but we seek superior risk-adjusted returns, not notoriety for our writing skills.  If this is something you can relate to, then this blog is for you.
