Review Of Open Positions

I normally separate the futures and stocks reviews, but given we’re down to the lowest number of stock positions since building up a complete portfolio around this time last year, I figured I’d take a look at everything together for a complete overview. That, and I’m on vacation, so I’m in reflective mood. We trend-followers …

Review Of Open Positions – Stocks

AlphaCapture

We took a trip to Stop City last week as the market continued to come under pressure with exits in $ATHN +20.1%, $TOL -6.3%, $GOOG +11.2%, $LVS +7.6%, $SIAL -3.6%, $MCK +47.5%, and $GNTX -2.7%. All reasonable gains and small losses. As I said in a quick pep-talk here, when the exit signals come you …

Review Of Open Positions – Futures

AlphaCapture

We started this week with a timely exit of our NASDAQ long, and ended it with an entry in Live Cattle, the first since adding it to our universe at the beginning of this month. Inbetween there was plenty of volatility, with renewed strength in the 30yr and Corn being more than offset by further …

Another successful week in our stocks portfolio as the S&P marked its most recent correction as being officially over with a new all time high close.

The S&P continued higher for the remainder of the week along with the NASDAQ, albeit with some increased volatility, and there were also gains on …

Another weekly gain despite the modest retreat in the major market indices, with 11 of our 17 existing names finishing higher led by strong gains in $ACT, $UA, $PGTI, and $RAD. We also added a further 4 names; $SIAL, $TOL, $TYC, and $TASR, bringing our total open positions up to 21. Here’s the summary of …

Review Of Open Positions – Futures

AlphaCapture

No changes to our futures portfolio this week, and little change in our p&l either with the 10yr unchanged, and modest gains in our 30yr and NASDAQ positions not enough to overcome the weakness in the Pound. Elsewhere, the S&P would likely trigger a long signal on a new high, as would the Euro. Oil …
