How do I select stocks for trading options?

A few of my followers and subscribers asked me the same question: “How do I evaluate stocks and select them to trade options”? When I was relatively a novice to trading options I also didn’t know what stocks to use trading options. But the selection process is exact same as if you select stocks to Continue reading →

Netflix will be a part of your cable service. Will it hurt Comcast?

As I hold a position in Comcast (CMCSA) I typically tend to monitor what’s going on around those stocks and how that activity may affect my position. Comcast has a lot cooking under the hood which I deem to be a good reason for holding this stock. There is a merger with Time Warner Cable Continue reading →

Which stocks to buy in 2015?

I trade mostly dividend paying stocks, but watch a few companies which I consider good companies although they do not pay dividends. These I use in my portfolio as growth play stocks (for example a few months ago I did buy Alibaba (BABA) for this same reason). In my watch list I have approx. 100 Continue reading →

Gold Sank Faster Than Titanic. Are You Panicking?

Today’s trading was fascinating. My account was red and full of blood as never before. A true blood in the streets. A massacre.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012

The old year 2011 is coming to its end and it is a time to review the old year and make a resolution for the new year 2012. Reviewing the old year I must admit that it was a very successful year. I finally was able to get closer to my dream – trading for 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 →

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.
