Your Comments and Emails

Your choices for the stock list have begun to come in by email. I’m behind in replies. You can also post them in the comments section of the blog.

One email was of particular interest to me yesterday, since I really respect the late gifted comedian Carrol O’Conner (see yesterday’s Investors411) I had no idea of the breath of O’Conner’s talent - “Barr Just for the record Carroll  O’Connor is an actor. He may be most known as Archie but he played  “…stately plump Buck Mulligan” in the film version of Joyce’s Ulysses. See it if you haven’t. Best…BB”

He also won an Emmy (In The Heat of The Night) and two NAACP Image Awards

US Stock Markets -

Major news that’s driving dollar higher and US stocks lower is coming out of Europe. There are some weak economies in eastern Europe and some in Eurozone Some important points/causes to remember that are often forgotten by the casino capitalists.

  • Europe was impacted because so many of their banks followed the shadow US institutions and got over leveraged.
  • The recession born in the USA spread because of globalization.
  • Mismanagement of resources and debt exists their as well as here.

Still surprising that US stocks have held up so well despite a huge 3 day move up  for the dollar. = Bullish

Significant Indexes

  • The Dollar (USD) [Anything daily price move over +/- 0.50 is significant. Dollar usually moves inversely to stocks] For the 3rd day in a row the dollar rose a significant amount. +0.55% yesterday. Dollar broke its support level last week, but yesterday it broke back up through that resistance level. The trend for stocks = Neutral
  • The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) [measures cost of world trade. Also proxy for China, emerging markets,&  exporting countries]Fell  -0.60% yesterday. BDI now consolidating after bull run that began in June. The BDI has been overshadowed by the dollar moves. Sitting directly above major support. Longer term Pattern starting to look bearish but the bears are not charging.= Bearish/NEUTRAL
  • McClellan Index – (MO) [The rough guideline is over +60 = overbought market = sell positions or short stocks, & -60 = oversold market = buy stocks.] Fell dramatically to -9.14 yesterday.  = NEUTRAL

Reading Tea Leaves.

For almost two months we have had an unusually flat MO. It’s traded between @ +35 & -25 and has not reached +/- 60. The +35/-25 both become strong resistance/support levels.

Even though the dollar rose significantly, it opened and closed at the same price. Often this says a short term top has been achieved.

Positions

The  Positions Section link to latest & former buys and sells  - These are positions I actually own

(I do manage 6 accounts that have other positions)

  • EWS (Singapore) Reached new high yesterday, but fell with US stocks.
  • EEM (emerging Markets) Have stop on 1/2 of position at what it was bought for.
  • DGP (2x gold) Sold 1/2 position as dollar was again significantly higher. Bought at 37.99 Sold at 42.35 for +11% gain

In the last two days we’ve cashed in on 8%,16% & 11% gains in leveraged ETF’s.

Sorry - I know SSO only lasted a month (others, TYH & 1/2 of DGP, less than a week)  Most of you are looking for long term buys.

My adjusted stop got blown up on DGP and the drop here was so fast I lost @0.50%. Bummer, but that’s life in the world of High Frequency Traders. Unless you can watch your stock all day Stops are necessary.  .

Traders & Investors with tolerance for high risk.-  Any significant drop in equities should bring the MO down to -25 (see above) support level and an opportunity to buy.

Investors - I know its been a long wait for the MO to agin get close to -60/oversold/ safer to buy area. Be patient and also remember when we cross -60 everyone going to be saying the sky is falling.

Remember we are revising the watch list so send in your choices to me or post them in the comments section of blog. YOUR Stock List works because YOU send in stock ideas. Here the guidelines for entries.

  • The 50 day moving average must be moving up. That’s the blue line if you are using Stockcharts
  • No thinly traded stocks. Absolute minimum $2.5 million dollars worth of this stocks traded each day.  (example over 500,000 shares traded and worth $5) Over $5 million is preferable. Smaller stocks are too easy manipulated by major players.
  • Maximum 3 Stocks.

Look for Paul R’s always enlightening remarks on stocks and sectors in the comments section of the blog. See POSITION section of blog for lists of potential stocks & ETF’s including “YOUR Stock List.”

CAUTION – Having so many recent winners inflates the ego and dulls reason.

Longer Term Outlook - CAUTIOUSLY BULLISH

AS ALWAYS, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH BEFORE INVESTING!
