This Is What I Mean……..

……..when I speak of now being not a fantastic entry point for shorts, but long-term, it hardly making much difference.

Below is one of nearly 200 stocks that have similar characteristics. Namely: (a) wonderful long-term potential for a drop (b) the opportunity to push up a little higher next week for a better entry.

I'm in this position, and my stops on all my positions remain pretty loose. Should we have a rally next week – – and the last 90 minutes of today should be MIGHTY interesting – well……… are going to see one happy bear here.


Sneaking Through the Crack

Regular readers know well my frustration with my formerly marvelous 401-k account which has had its arms chopped off to the Principal Financial Group's patronizing decision to eliminate ETF trading from brokerage accounts. One symbol, DZZ, apparently eluded their search-and-destroy mission, so – – since it's the one symbol I can trade (rolling eyes), I bought it today. I'm aiming for an exit of anywhere close to $20. Sheesh.


Believe me, I shall be closing this account the moment I am legally able to do so and moving it to – shall we say – greener pastures.
