In with the New

The first trading session of 2015 started off with a bang, in the form of an opening pop from strong overnight futures. However, that bang turned into a fade, as many notable stocks suffered weakness and/or choppy action throughout the session. I put on a few shorts (GOOG LOW) and am long a silver miner (SLW), feeling out some potential big...

We All Have it Coming, Kid; Chess Moves

I went short LOW, as per my earlier post today, at $67.65. The position is roughly 4% of trading capital, with a protective stop-loss above $69.70 (recent highs). LOW looks ripe to finish out this week with a week chart "shooting star" bearish reversal candlestick after prior steep uptrend, seen below on the weekly timeframe. My risk is...

Earnings for LOW are not until late-February, and the stock is...

Be a Leader; Chess Moves

I went long SLW, premier silver miner Silver Wheaton, at $20.69 just now, placing 4% of my trading portfolio capital in the name. My protective stop-loss is set below $19.80. I am impressed with the upside reversals in the precious metals and miners this morning, while equities in general have reversed lower. Metals and miners have been sloppy...

Starting the Year with Clarity

I am opening 2015 with a clean slate, having cut my trading positions last week for either small losses, small wins, or essentially scratch. This morning, we are looking at a gap higher which is fading a bit. AAPL is a drag on the Nasdaq, while recent breakouts like LOCK are under pressure. TSLA also looks to be rolling over here, while...
