Trade exit - Armour Residential (ARR)

Armour Residential (ARR) cut its monthly dividend to $0.07/share from $0.08. It’s the 2nd cut in as many quarters and the price dropped. For me it is the end of holding this stock. This morning I sold my shares in ARR and I am no longer interested in this paper. Now I will be looking Continue reading →

Market correction

Market correction

The market finally truned into a correction. Hold your hats, we may be running low. My estimate is to pull back down to $145 – $146 level (SPY). Have you saved enough money to buy more stocks?

Why I dumped mutual funds from my investing strategy

Why I dumped mutual funds from my investing strategy

I no longer believe in mutual funds. Earlier I thought they were a great investment vehicle, because they can provide diversification. But is it really such a significant trait of the funds that it can beat mutual funds flaws? People, those slightly informed about investing, know that generally, 95% of mutual funds do not exceed Continue reading →

Lending Club Holdings page

I really enjoy investing with Lending Club. I’ve been investing with Lending Club for almost 3 years and over that time I have developed a method of selecting, evaluating and watching new notes in which I want to invest and those I am already invested in. The method of watching the notes I already own Continue reading →

Focus on savings and investing with Lending Club

Focus on savings and investing with Lending Club

Recently I was evaluating my investment goals and the way I was saving money for investing. In many of my previous posts I preached a way of saving into non transaction fee mutual funds, which would allow investing small amounts let’s say $50 every month without paying a fee. Then I could see something I Continue reading →

Wacky Trading today

SPX opened lower on worries over the Europe (like we haven’t heard about it previously), then technicals got in, mainly Oracle’s bad results and pushed the market (SPX) all the way down to 1230. That looked scary! At least for me since two days ago I reversed my bearish outlook into bullish and I started Continue reading →

Is Santa Claus Rally undergo?

As I wrote yesterday, we could break down thru the support or bounce back. The market was oversold and there were no significant negative news to push it lower, however because of Europe, there still was a risk of going lower. It seems like we are bouncing instead. The SPX surged 2% up at opening Continue reading →

Does the market resume its downtrend?

We are technically still in bearish territory. When you look at where SPY (for example) is trading (or you can also take a look at SPX), it is still trading below 200 day MA. It however knocked on that resistance several times (which may be a sign of a break thru sometime in the future). Continue reading →
