Jerome's a good boy! Yes he is!
The market got the rate cut it was yearning for, third cut in a row with the market at highs. The average SPX return over the next year following 3 rate cuts is something like 12%, so the macro environment has vastly improved. The next piece of information to look for is the Phase 1 deal being signed between China/US.
We're seeing a massive shift in rotation into consumer cyclicals, industrials and financials, so you'll probably see some new names and slower movers on this newsletter. But, got to obey the rotation.
Stocks are gapping up tonight and SPY will likely open around that $307 mark, and will be about $5 higher than its 8 day moving average, so some consolidation is definitely needed in the indices. We can't maintain this 'straight up' price action, but the trend is definitely higher and we are in a much better swing trading environment. This means its time to expand the time frame a bit if you have been keeping things on a much shorter leash. This is the time you try to avoid getting stopped out of your swings because you want to let them work for you over time. Make sure you're getting stopped out of your winners via a trailing stop and not just panic selling into an up-move. I've got the most positions I've had on all year and 75% of them are just trailing earnings winners I've been in a week+.
I actually felt this blog is timely and relevant.
Thank you very much for writing this trove of information; if more
writers created time-worthy and intelligent prose, I gander everybody’d all
be in a better situation. To me, I consider it at truth that we should place our attention more
on eating well and keeping fit and alive and free from being always
in front of the computer or cell phone screen. Going outside (and not being glued to the cell phone all the while, either) and living
free, living life in full appreciation of the natural world, keeps people feeling sane and
feeling joyous. Philosophizing about vital topics is likewise an experience
that can assist us to make the discovery of self understanding. http://www.jesus-forums.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=392029
