Wow, a ride the past two weeks Dow went from 18000 to 17000 to 17736, forming a V shape on the charts. Does that mean “v” for victory. I hope so. So far we have weathered the volatility well, We lost 2 this week $AAPL and $BAH and picked up 2 $BABY and $GPK. We opened up a small swing position on $CYBR at 41.95 that will not be tracked in this blog.
$JNS is pushing hard against resistance for a new break out. It has an excellent risk reward factor. On the signal, (close above 16), would make a good place to open, or add to a position. $MNST and $COV also appear to be poised for a new breakout, but as always, you should wait for the appropriate signal.
Sadly we have to report that $NQ has reported earnings and so far has not helped price much. We wrote in a previous blog” The story of Fundamental Analysis, a tale of Woe” our reflections of $NQ. We did not follow our plan and we did not follow our systems signal. We chose to hold on and follow what has now proven , a disastrous strategy. $NQ has dragged our portfolio down from what would be an amazing profit to a small loss.
The good thing about our horrible strategy in $NQ is we have learned from our mistakes and subsequently proved the validity of our trend following system .
Christmas is coming up next week and then New years, so this blog may not be updated untill the new year.
So, to you and yours,
We wish you a Happy Holiday, Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year .
