Last Day

I just don't understand when people ask, "What do you think the market will do on the last day?"

That's like asking, "What do you think the outcome of a coin toss will be?"

It's not what the market will do, it's how you take advantage of it.

For me, if there is a gap down on 12/31, then I am buying.

Simple as that!

1stDay, 1stWeek, 1stMonth

They all need to be positive for the market to be up in 2008 according to Stock's Trader Almanac.

I will put up some correlation charts on links I like.

Worth It?

Look at the professionals charging a nice amount of money.

But when put to the test, they performed miserably.

Remember, in a bull market, even a chimp can make you money.

It's the performance of a bear market that makes a huge difference.

If you want to pay somone to lose your money, then pay me.

I won't do a good job at it.

Question about LDK

Click on the tile to read.


You need to consider agriculture going forward as a long term investment.


It looks like the market will try to keep DRYS under 70 so that CALL options expire worthless.

It is holding 72 today, but hang on to your seat.

fortune8 1 day ago with 2 points

Unless DRYS breaks 72 on the closed, I am looking for at leat 80.

If it bteaks 80, then 85, then 90.

Not sure why it is selling off today.

Wednesday, December 19, 2007


I am hoping LDK hit 50, just a little above 21ema.

Very nice article on LDK here as well.

In November, I gave you QLD@99 and that it would close above that by month end; otherwise, I would not post here anymore.

Now, I am giving you QQQQ will close above 51.50 by month end or I wont post anymore.

Take that!
December 14, 2007 12:06 AM

The above is my call. If you don't agree, then repsonse to it for a latte.

I will take the QQQQ below 31.50 for a Latte.

I think he meant 51.50

BUY VLO (4,8,21 cross-over)

See the nice base it made?

Do you know how hard it was to buy TWM this morning?

Did try to short LDK from two accounts and got rejected.

Oh Ben, what have you done and when will you ever learn?

In hindsight, it was not very smart not to have any hedge before the Fed meeting. I was convinced that NASDAQ would not closed above 2800 by the end of the week.

Watching and waiting for IWM to hit 80/82 to buy TWM. 79 seems to be close enough and would have been a good hedge. Worse case scenario, is to sell TWM for a small loss.

Take a look at SKF, not much to lose but a lot to gain.

Lesson Learned.


SNDK is holding up relatively well considering the sell off in the market today.

Makes we wonder. The longer it base around 38-39, the larger the break out will be.

Just hope it does not close below 38.

Short LDK@61

LDK did make a slight bounce into the close.

Not sure if the stock will fill the gap.

However, if you have profit, then protect it.

Einstein's Riddle

I came across a derivative of Einstein's Riddle and thought it was fun to solve.

According to Einstein, 98% of the world cannot solve it.

The person who has fish has a neighbor who drinks water.
The person who plays golf has a neighbor who has birds.
The teacher has a neighbor who drinks coffee.
The owner of the red house is a salesman.
The green house is to the left of the blue house.
The lawyer drinks milk.
The person who plays badminton has a neighbor who drinks tea.
The accountant lives to the left of the person who has cats.
The fourth house is the white house.
The owner of the yellow house plays badminton.
The doctor has cats.
The person who has dogs lives to the left of the person who plays chess.
The owner of the blue house plays chess.
The third house owner plays tennis.
The person who plays bowling has hamsters.

Who is the beer drinker?

Trade Trigger

My active trade trigger:

If IWM's bid increases to 80 then buy 100 shares of TWM at market on SmartEx and beep. This conditional order will remain active for up to 60 days and may trigger as a result of a stock split or other corporate actions.

Take a look at the chart.


80 may be too early as IWM may hit 82. But it's close enough already.

12/10/2007 - Modified

If IWM's bid increases to 82 then buy 100 shares of TWM at market on SmartEx and beep. This conditional order will remain active for up to 60 days and may trigger as a result of a stock split or other corporate actions.
