I’ve now bought a little calls in…

The markets are having a hard time holding their rally and the Nasdaq’s even turned red now. I did a small pre-earnings trade.  Ciena reports earnings tomorrow morning before the open and I’ve read nothing but explanations of why they are likely to really miss and guide lower and get crushed tomorrow.  And that might [...]

Come meet me in the chat room to ask me anything you want…

Hey, don’t forget to come meet me in the chat room to ask me anything you want.  Today at 2pm EST.  See you at http://tradingwithcody.com/chat. The markets are  staying steady again today, and the further and steadier we rally from those recent panicky lows, the harder they should be to revisit. See you soon!   [...]

Great trading isn’t always about buying and selling…

And they’re off.  Up along the outside, it’s Autodesk, which has been one of the single most volatile stocks in the market since we first bought it, right around these levels just a couple weeks ago.  Bumping each other in the middle as they jockey for position is Microsoft and Adtran, both up nicely in [...]

Time to panic! Or not…

Greece!  Oh my goodness, did you hear about Greece?!  There’s a debt problem over there.  And it might lead to contagion.  You better sell your stocks right now because of this Greece contagion risk. Oh wait. My bad, I was watching a replay of CNBC from two weeks ago.  Or was it two months ago. [...]

Billie Jean if you’re out there, I love you…

“Those who cannot remember the past will spend a lot of time looking for their cars in mall parking lots.”  - Jay Trachman Good morning and welcome back to the world’s biggest shopping mall.  Make sure you’ve got your wallet in your front pocket. The markets are down a bit after the open here.  Some nice orderly [...]

We can a learn a lot about trading from cowboys and horses…

Monty Roberts, the great horsewhisperer whose autobiography I am currently reading, talks about how horses are “lean into” animals.  That is, they lean into pressure.  You want a horse to turn left, you don’t get a team of wranglers to push him on his right side — you can simply, by yourself, usually get him [...]

You almost lost your mind…

You said you were hurting, You almost lost your mind Now the man you love, he hurts you all the time but when things go wrong, go wrong with you It hurts me too  – Elmore James And the Nasdaq is now up more than 3% on the day as the rally continues.  The bears will point to [...]

Response requested: Who’s more scared right now, the bulls or the bears?…

I know it’s only been six days — four trading sessions since I first asked you guys to weigh in on the question: “Who’s more scared right now, the bulls or the bears?”.  At the time, last Tuesday, the DJIA was below 11,000 and I got about 100 replies from you guys — I can [...]

I might prefer to see a little more “steady betty” and a little less “volatile Veronica”…

“Mental toughness is many things and rather difficult to explain. Its qualities are sacrifice and self-denial. Also, most importantly, it is combined with a perfectly disciplined will that refuses to give in. It’s a state of mind-you could call it character in action.” — Vince Lombardi Impressive rally so far today, but… But I think [...]

Have we really bottomed?…

It’s a brand new week.  And the markets are up again.  Last week, when we were under DJIA 11,000, I wrote: I do think we’re getting closer to bottoming sooner rather than later.  I’ll rephrase — I think this market might finally be putting in a bottom around the 10,800 level or so.   And [...]
