3 Casinos Race to the Bottom

By April of this year the party was clearly over for these previous high flyers. Today they all seemed to fall through the thin ice of support at the same time. It will get a lot worse before it gets better. I'd stay far away.

Want to short? Look to short at a retest of prior support. Right now there are too many people running for the exits to go short, too much risk of a squeeze.

Trades & Performance 07/26/14

No better time than all-time-market-highs to post my trade performance.

- I don't buy and hold.

- I buy dips and base/consolidation breakouts. Sell some on new highs and over extended prices.

- I use trailing stops (light grey line). I don't use sell targets.

- My trades always start with a "core" holding and I build on that. I rarely jump in all at once.

My current trades and performance below:
Oil and Gas driller, its like watching paint dry but continues to move higher.

Held through earning which I almost never do. Glad I did.

I'm just buying on dips and letting this work.

Bought this on a breakout and it gradually broke down. I may jump back in if this sets up again. Long term this is looking decent.

NADSQ 100 broke out of a base in mid may where I caught it. I've just been letting it work.

I've been buying dips and shaving off tiny bits on new highs. My longest trade yet.

Solar has been my best trade. Bought this on a breakout from a base last may and have buying dips and selling new highs to take profit along the way. I believe in solar long term.
This ETF out performs the SPY by its equal weighting of holdings. 

Same as the SPY I've been buying dips and shaving off tiny bits on new highs.
