Full markets analysis and two housekeeping items

Flattish start to the day. And the longer we sit around here trying to break through these levels in the Nasdaq and the broader markets too, the more you’ll hear the technicians and the pundits talk about how that becomes bigger resistance to a higher high. The flip side of that (Flip It when it [...]

Trade Alert: Buying puts to hedge the portfolio

A couple other trades I’m putting on today. I’m adding to my LPS and Morgan Stanley short positions via puts. Been a long time since I felt the need to be get more aggressive on my short hedging. I still think the path of least resistance for the overall markets and for tech in particular [...]
