No Worries, Buy When the Price is Right

Yesterday, the news of Russia building up its forces on the Ukrainian border, along with China telling the world once again it is growing too fast and it needs to slow down, sent the stock market reeling, or so the news told us. This morning, the market...

Geese, Gander, and Buy Low, Sell High

It was quite the day yesterday in the fuel-cell world. How far the mighty can fall when the mighty fly high only on hot air. PLUG fell from the high $11 zone all the way down to just below $6 about as quickly as market gravity allows. Today, it is up...

Is The Launch For Real?

As a trader, I watch everything I can, but there are events or stocks I study carefully because they fly in the face of my sense of what is rational. The recent fuel-cell stock “event” and the stock PLUG are both worth my time to look at carefully....

The S&P 500, Fuel-Cell Stocks, and Putin

As Monday mornings go, this is, well, Monday. Unless it is a holiday, Mondays usually are somewhat of a downer. The first day of the work week also means the weekend is over. Even though I have the best job in the world, meaning I can arrange my time...

Confidence and the Rules of the Game

Higher highs scare me, especially on stocks that are too high relative to valuation. Yet, I wonder if that fear is something from my past, a time when I knew less and lost more. I wonder if I need to up my confidence a notch to take advantage of a market...

A Good Market for Trading

If one is so inclined, one should see the market as teacher these days. Actually, it is always a teacher, but since January, it has excelled in teaching about the relationship between data, price-action, and expectations in the market – on the surface it...

Lots To Do Today

Do you ever have moments when you question your trading strategy? I am certainly having one of those moments today. Actually, I had the same thought yesterday, but today it is more intense. As I have been writing, the fuel-cell technology market is...

The Power That Pushed Putin Back

Putin Ends Military Exercises in Western Russia Says Interfax; Micex Jumps Another day, another crisis seemingly resolved for the market. Up, up, and away goes the market after falling, falling, and falling yesterday. And why is this happening? It would...

Be Careful of Wishing

Wow! One of the great maxims in life is: “Be careful about what you wish – you just might get it.” Well, on Friday, I wrote the following. Will March and April bring May flowers? It all depends on the economic data, Russia, and the Ukraine now that the...

Have a Good Day – I Am

Again, another day and we have another day of normalcy in the market. Funny, but after some 10 years of watching the market day in and day out, I just now, just today, realize what an effect its movements have on me. Okay, so I didn’t just realize that,...

When It Rains, Plant

As I said when closing yesterday, we are expecting rain here in Central California. It is sorely needed and it appears, the prognosticators will be correct, 100% correct. The grey skies outside my window look threatening, indeed. Two weeks ago, the...

Good News, Bad News, and No News

I am not sure where to go this morning, as the happenings in the world that affect the market are much and interesting, but, in particular, as the market climbs back to its top, the crazies are coming down from the hilltop. Wall Street continues to...

Always, So Much to Think About

And what a fine Monday morning it is … I know why I feel good today, but I am not sure why the market is so up. It is just one of those market days when it says, “I feel good.” So, even if I don’t know what is going on, I do know that my trades are...
