Trade Alert: Taking some profits on the SPY calls

Wednesday when the market was down huge, I wrote the following: “With the markets down 2% across the board this morning, it’s time for another fresh round of tranche buying of a little more GOOG and FSLR common stocks and I’m also going to add a couple call options on the SPY here — buying [...]

Trade Alert: Buying some SPY calls for a trade

Stocks crashing, DJIA -345 at 15972, Nazz officially in correction territory. Many stocks like INTC down 5-10%. Remember when we were trimming our favorites at all-time highs over the last few weeks? Remember how many names like Ciena and Juniper and JDSU and others that I removed from the portfolio as we steadily raised cash [...]

Trade Alert: Nibbling some names as we analyze the cycles

To put it bluntly, most analysts and pundits and economists are puppies chasing their own tails. There are three main types of these puppies. First, there’s the Permabear camp. These are the people who spend all their lives focusing on how inefficient and corrupt our financial as well as our stock markets are in general. [...]

SELLING THE LAST OF GTAT FOR MORE THAN A DOUBLE Well, I’m selling all of my $GTAT and moving on entirely from it for now. The stock is now up 150% in today’s trading. Let’s take the gain — what a homerun overnight, eh? That’s why we do the bankruptcy BK trade every once in [...]

Trade Alert: Update on the GTAT BK trade PLUS Everything You Should Know Heading Into This Busy Week

I only got filled on about 1/3 of how much I wanted to buy to even build up what would have been about a 1/3 first tranche of GTAT at around 90 cents, hoping I would build the rest near 80 cents or lower, but the stock didn’t fade lower into my bids. So now [...]

Trade Alert: Highly speculative BK trade plus markets and TKMR collapses on cue

Wow, I don’t recall the last time I saw a relatively-developed economy’s stock market spike 8% in a single day, but Brazil indeed has. Markets here are volatile. Be careful for the near-term. Use weakness in the stocks you want to own to slowly scale in. But don’t rush it. Bubble-blowing bull market context still [...]


Darn it all, that’s how you know I’m sending you these trades out in real-time as I’m trying to act on them. Turns out that FEXPX isn’t an ETF but a mutual fund and there ain’t no shorting a mutual fund. I would look at any funds or stocks I have that are heavily-dependent upon exporting [...]

Trade Alert: IBM out, a simple way to play the spiking dollar and taking some HIMX and AMBA profits

Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 9.01.47 AM

 Google Glass supplier Himax HIMX up again, and starting to get parabolic. The HIMX chart is starting to remind me of GoPro supplier AMBA Ambarella’s chart frankly. Probably need to take a 1/5 profit on each to be disciplined. So that’s what I’m going to do – I’m trimming a tiny bit of both HIMX [...]
