The market has been under pressure ever since over the last few days, and it has given up the entire gain of the feel good 1-day rally that we had after the Trump speech.

The focus now seems to be on the imminent rate hike that will happen next week.

There’s not much to do here. SP500 stocks at 20-day highs have fallen off a cliff, but a more important barometer (20-day lows) has only seen a small expansion. An expansion of lows is more important than a deterioration of highs.



I have a few names on my long-only watch-list; $CLF, $FIVN, $LNG, $IIVI, $OAS, $ERX, $GUSH.

Oil stocks seem to be firming up a bit so I will pay close attention to $ERX and $GUSH.

We have an interest in these stocks if and only if they can get through yesterday’s high plus .10-cents, that is typically where our buy stops will be. This single criterion will narrow down the list to a handful of names unless of course, the market is super strong. You can also narrow down the list by float, price, sector, or whatever your preferences are.

These ideas are what we consider swing trades that can last anywhere from 1-10 days. Most stocks if not all go through momentum burst that lasts 1-10 days, that momentum burst is what we look to take advantage of.

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.
