The QQQ reversed down from resistance on Tuesday. With AAPL rebounding after hours it remains to be seen whether this strength will rescue the QQQ on Wednesday. The SPY and DIA are much weaker. Wednesday’s close of the QQQ will be very important to discerning the short term trend of this market. Maybe I should […]
Tuesday night we learn whether AAPL’s earnings can lead the QQQ through resistance. Meanwhile the bio-techs continue to show strength. My readers know that I rarely buy cheap stocks. I do make an exception when my extraordinary stock picker buddy, Judy, tells me about a small, young company that has a promising product. Enter NVIV […]
IBD says market up-trend has resumed. A strong day on Friday could result in a new QQQ short term up-trend and a Buy signal from the GMI. The QQQ still has not broken out of its descending channel, shown by the magenta lines below. Will it happen on Friday?

IBD has called the market back in an up-trend. Another up day could turn the GMI to a Buy signal. I have rarely seen such volatility. I did say that more than one half of QQQ short term down-trends have lasted under 10 days. This daily chart shows the recent GMI signals (by the arrows). […]
Perhaps one of the best teachers of option strategies is Alan Ellman. He has specialized in teaching people to sell covered calls, a conservative relatively low risk option strategy. Alan just published a new book on selling cash secured puts. This technique can be used to generate income or to buy a stock at a […]
