Known Unknowns

One of the more interesting psychological aspect about last night's headlines regarding a White House-ordered U.S. airstrike killing top Iranian Military General, Qassem Soleimani, is how quickly many were to jump to conclusions about the fallout from this news.

Software Keeping Bears Soft

The strength seen in many of the software names housed the IGV and HACK ETFs (with the latter focused on cybersecurity issues), seems worthy of the a Steve Ballmer dancing GIF given the weakness in small caps and many biotechs today.

With the Santa Rally officially underway as we wind down 2019, it is fairly standard to see the likes of AMZN begin to catch a strong bid. We have been long Amazon...

We often discuss the risk management aspects about trading and markets, be it position sizing, stop-loss placement, selectivity of actual trades placed, broad market and psychological considerations, not to mention external factors like earnings, known risk events, and so forth.
