Blog End

December 18, 2010 – Comments (6)

Since I'm doing so poorly as a stock-picker, even as I have begun to do pretty well as a manager of my own portfolio, I've decided to stop expending any more time playing the CAPs game.  Accordingly, I've closed all of my active picks and this will be my last blog post. I do appreciate many of the insights I've gained about investment from this venue, but I am simply gaining no value -- nor do I think anyone else is -- from this blog.   [more]



Testing IBD 100 Sizzlers strategy

December 07, 2010 – Comments (1)

I am currently testing (paper trading) a long side trading strategy for trading intermediate-length rallies (weeks to months long) named "IBD 100" sizzlers.  This is an automated test being conducted in real time using VectorVest's the "portfolio management" feature of their new stock analysis software, VectorVest 7.

November 17, 2010 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: DOG , SH , RWM

Investors Business Daily placed the market in general "in correction" in today's issue.  Instead of remaining completely in cash, I have decided to try a scaled-up version of investing in Contra ETFs this time.  I have dabbled in them before and the campaign I'm beginning here might be thought of as an engineering prototype:  I'm not betting the farm; just a few acres of it.  [more]
