Sleep is Good and Boys Will Be Boys

This morning, I am a bit foggy from lack of sleep. It is spring break here in San Luis Obispo, California, which means our 14-year-old boy has the week off, which means he has full reign to be a 14-year-old, which means he has friends spend the night,...

Evolution Is In the Air

Phew! What a weekend. I got a lot done on my total revamp of the landscaping around our house, but with that work comes a price, apparently. My hands are falling asleep at night. No, that is not an accurate description. My hands are tingling so much I...

Oh, Where to Begin?

Some days, it is hard to find a starting point; today is one of those days. Do I start with a reaffirmation of a point I have been pounding? … Over the past two years, any equity market corrections have been rare and limited in their magnitude. Notably,...

Do I Sell Or Do I Wait?

I don’t know about you, but I am awfully reflective for a Thursday. I am remembering all the way back to yesterday when I wrote, “At the hump in the week and the market is flat. The VIX is in a nice, easy place, say in the mid-14 zone. The S&P 500...

Dick Tracy Told Us It Was Coming

At the hump in the week and the market is flat. The VIX is in a nice, easy place, say in the mid-14 zone. The S&P 500 and DIJA are floating around the zero line. My trades are mixed; some are up and some are down, but all are behaving appropriately...

Another Day, Another Day Closer

Today is Tuesday, the day after Friday’s, I mean Monday’s supposed dead-cat bounce and the market is striking boldly into the green. There is no appreciable positive economic data, so the only thing left is Putin, aka the Ukraine/Russia event.   “We...

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...
