Breaking in to the top ten; state of play 8
I have for the first time entered the top ten of caps. *small bow*
My first wave (that brought me to the brink of the top 100) was basically the shorting of the financials. (From september 2007 to spring 2008) (As a countertrade i greenthumbed gold and health; both worked only moderately well)
My second wave (that brought me to the brink of the top ten) was the shorting of the commodity related stocks. (Summer 2008) (As a countertrade i greenthumbed airlines; that worked very well)
My third wave (that brought me into the top ten) was greenthumbing quality stocks after the october 2008 slowmotion crash. (As a countertrade i redthumbed a sprinkling of airlines and vulnerable financials; that did not work out.)
Interwoven between them i had two moves that fizzled out.
I captured a bear market rally in january 2008 but could not unload quick enough.
I expected a september bear market rally in the commodities that never came.
