Momentum has slowed down a little bit, breadth has been somewhat weak, this is mostly due to the fact that the Russell 2000 has been down for three days in a row.

Inauguration day and the beginning of earnings season are two catalysts some are pointing at as possible triggers for a pullback in the market. That remains to be seen and only time will tell.

With earnings season right around the corner, it is important to check the earnings date of your holdings.

My long-only watchlist consists of a few names with an extra focus on $POT $LC $AIRG and $BCO.

Here is the rest of the list;

We have an interest in the above names if and only if they go through yesterday’s high. That one single criterion on most days eliminates a bulk of the names. These ideas are what we consider swing trades that can last anywhere from 1-10 days. Most stocks if not all go through a momentum burst that lasts 1-10 days and that 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.
