Oops! Time to Sell NVDA

This is a huge red flag. Cramer got us to buy his AMBA right before it tanked - made us the greater fool there..

When analysts start touting is when you need to sell..

Crash Nigh

Says who? Bill J O'Neill that's who -


Read his book - when the old dogs (like TSLA) start to bark - you pretty much know the rally has lost steam..

Crash Yes, But When?

Clinton, bull run - irrational exhuberance
Bush comes in and market top is March of 2000
Obama comes in, market makes a bottom March of 2009 and then triples
So, I predict a market top in March of 2017. Watch the $BPSPX and the VIX. If VIX is low and $BPSPX is flat, better get out :)

Rules for Trading Success

Do as I say, not as I do :)

From Dr. Elder, Mark Deaton, Nial, etc..

  1. Good records = good traders. Track every trade - know why you entered, where on the chart, what your exit strategy was, etc..
  2. Don't be emotionally affected by any one trade - winner or l. Know that you can go on tilt and make bad trades in the immediate future.
  3. Control risk through position sizing - which demands you know your stop.
  4. Patience, observation and discipline are the cornerstones. Sometimes the best trade is no trade. In life, there may be no decision - you have to take a decision and make it right. That's not the case with trading - it's very easy to "make a decision" one way :)
  5. If you're always in the market - then you're gambling.
  6. Are you bottom fishing on this entry? Bottom fishing does not work.
  7. Remember HALT - no trade when you're hungry, angry, lonely or tired. Get your sleep.
  8. How long do you plan to hold this position? Long => gambling.

May you live long and prosper.

Think about Henkel HEN3

P/E : 23
40B EUR mkt cap
Why caught my attention? Purex was selling at Wal-Mart for 50% lower than competitors. Why? No clue. They're a Dial company and Dial is owned by Henkel. In America you have to put such info on there so people know who to sue.. :)

Why Not STX or WDC for Dividend Plays?

ROE of STX is pretty good - which is what Joel Greenblatt touts..

Retire Young and Rich


Have hardly noticed the market...

Truly, what's the best way to invest - given you'll be kicking yourself if your stock drops..

Here's my new plan :

If the stock has formed a base and not broken out yet, get a few shares - you might have to hold for years :)

For good performers, use IFTTT - to be notified of drops..


Market Edge and Gorilla Trades seem to be doing a great job of picking out winners..

AMZN is rated an avoid right now for technical reasons - so watch for a dip to get back in..

Why not by NLY, sell the call and reap the dividend? Seems like solid support at $9..

BABA is rated a buy BTW.. Market Edge and the fundamentals - Thomson Reuters, S&P,..

FYI, GSK is rated lowest - despite the high dividend and low PE.. Who could have guessed?

You Should be Out Already. If Not... Sorry :)

Old dogs (like AAPL) are starting to bark - even DDD and GRPN.

VIX is going lower and lower all the time.

Vision Investing and Bill J O'Neill say that's all it takes for a market top.

Now's the time to take RBS' advice..

Sell now!!
