    I tend to agree. It feels like I'm picking a up a pair of swim trunks in December. I'll try to leave it in the bottom of the dresser.

  5. PMX - $9.75 would've been a good entry, wonder why it's back up so quickly, false fear alarm?

    Maybe there aren't really any bears, just fear mongerers looking to create and exploit a ruckus?

  6. Long RAS at $2.30...small starter position.

    Added last piece of BGZ at $8.89.

    2nd - I agree with that chart. The issue as always is timing.

  8. Hi Everyone,

    I wanted to introduce myself and make the first post. I am David's friend and he introduced me to this blog. I have been reading this blog for a while and find it very informative.

    I used to be a buy and hold trader in the 90's but the latest crash tought me a lesson and I started managing my portofolio a lot more actively without fear of dynamically moving in and out of positions. I tried an option collar strategy earlier this year with varying degree of success. I am currently about 70% in cash and have the following positions:

    SWN put
    MON put
    Long: CSCO/UNG/INTC/PFE/XOM/PLXS
    Small: Jan SPY 126 PUT hedge position
    Mutual funds: LSBDX/FPACX/PRPFX/MLPAX

    I picked up today a small position (1000 shares) in AMAT for 13.90 this morning. The company has been neglected last year and is well positioned to capitalize on growth in semiconductor manufacturing. I also like its technical graph.

  9. Welcome to the blog, Igor! Finally! :)

    You probably meant to say that you have a *short* put position in MON and SWN.

    As for AMAT, I haven't seen its graph before, but it looks quite overbought now. If I had to buy it for the long term, I would wait for the market correction (that will probably bring AMAT down to $12) and then buy it at $12. Or at least start scaling into it gradually at $13, with the intention to build up a full position at $12.

  10. The NG traders are obviously Schizophrenic... UNG is below yesterday's low now!

  11. Welcome Igor. I've had the pleasure of spending some time with David. You've got a good friend there. However, I hope you can hold your booze better than he can ;).

    BIG level here for BAC @12.87. Previous high. If it can clear here, the next target would be a gap fill @ 13.23 and resistance @ 13.63. I got to say, this is one stock that take a punch.

  12. I took a small starter position on AMAT based on some positive news this morning and a positive upward technical momentum. I am planing to scale in on any correction. I am also considering puting a sell stop on it at 13.45/13.40 just below the recent lows.

  13. I guess you mean Marian? Isn't a Marionette a type of puppet with strings?

  14. Igor - Welcome, I hope we don't throw your timing off...

  15. MCP - Yeah, I heard about a week ago they had received a permit for a mine somewhere, no detail, didn't investigate.

    ReplyDelete
  16. AMAT - I wouldn't count on much of a pullback considering where the P/E is, not that it couldn't happen if the entire market panicked like a Madera sissy-boy.

  17. Close..Meredith.

    No imbalances I can find so far.

  18. 2nd - what is your current thinking on CAF?? I recall that you traded that some time ago. 27 floor looks interesting.

  20. Bought a couple of AAPL Dec $320 Calls just for fun to see if it gets a breakout rally before Christmas.

  21. Fouled off enough pitches today to get clean single up the middle. +1.12%.

  22. Mark

    Sorry for my ignorance, but what do you mean by imbalances?

    ReplyDelete
  23. +1.39%, doesn't mean much though, could easily lose that and more in the blink of an eye.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Imbalance to the Buy or sell side, a snapshot that indicates which side is more interested.

  25. Well, RBY did well today at the end. That's usually a good sign. You wouldn't believe me, anyway, if I told you how many shares I have, so I won't. Suffice to say I bought till I about ran out of funds at %.11 to 5.15, and today was a really good day.
