Entering Long $AIG

AlphaCapture

Long $AIG I had mentioned recently how this was one of the better setups out there, especially within the financial sector which otherwise has some awful charts. Today produced the price action needed to trigger an entry, breaking out to fresh highs on increased volume. The volume wasn’t huge, but it was still the best …

Entering Long $UNP

AlphaCapture

Long – Union Pacific ($UNP) I could show you a longer-term chart of this but it wouldn’t look much different. To be honest it’s so good I’m almost a little embarrassed I don’t already own it, but I think I can see why, possibly when it made that new high in the 160′s the stop …

Entering Long McDonald’s ($MCD)

AlphaCapture

McDonald’s ($MCD) $MCD has been on the radar since the major advance on 3/11 first indicated the downtrend from the April 2013 high may be over, and after a quick retracement an equally swift resumption of the intermediate uptrend followed. Last week saw an attempt to take out the November and August 2013 highs, and …

Review Of Open Positions

AlphaCapture

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 …

AlphaCapture

Friday’s weakness saw two more trailing stops breached, triggering exits in $BKW and $BRCM for Monday’s open. As of Friday’s close they were showing returns of +19.0% and -3.0% respectively.
