Exiting Long $GOOG, $TOL

AAAA

Great session today. I’ve said it before, and I’m sure not everyone believes me, but I actually welcome these little selloffs we get every now and then.┬áThe way I see it, losing positions are a cost to my business. If someone told you they had a means to identify costs to your business and help …

Review Of Open Positions – Stocks

AlphaCapture

Another good week for our stocks portfolio and the market overall, as it continues to rally back sharply, with the NASDAQ reaching new highs (and triggering a long in our futures portfolio), and the S&P finishing just shy of record levels that would confirm an historically quick correction officially over. We started the week with …

AlphaCapture

After a very busy period in the last fortnight it was somewhat of a relief to see our turnover slow this week. We did still have three signals early on, before the market enjoyed a relief of its own with a 3% rally in four days. When markets have sharp rallies after a corrective period …

An eventful week in the market with 4 days of weakness all wiped away with one euphoric session on Friday following a better than expected jobs report as supposed fears of tapering gave way to the realization that good news really may be good news. Or at least that’s what we were told. Frankly it …

Good Trade, Bad Trade

AlphaCapture

After you’ve exited a trade how long do you keep looking at it? Do you sit there watching it avidly, wanting to see confirmation you were right to exit, or do you take it off your screen so you are free to move on to the next trade? I’m somewhere inbetween, watching it the day …

Entering Long Google ($GOOG), TASER Intl ($TASR)

AlphaCapture

No surprises here. In the last week we’ve flagged the possibility of $GOOG and $TASR triggering new entry signals, and both came through after today’s bullish price action. We will enter both at Tuesday’s open. Google ($GOOG) We only managed to take 13% out of $GOOG when we played it earlier this year, having seen …
