Last week the stock market resumed rally again, particularly NASDAQ. However on Friday the rally attempt has been put under pressure and this rally may fail. This is why I am still keeping the market status at “Rally Attempt” instead of changing it to a confirmed rally status. The next week trading will reveal if this rally sustains this pressure or continues.

I am still watching a few of the stocks I wish to buy – Visa and Medifast. Both stocks are creating great buying opportunity. Visa is still under a strong downtrend, however, creating possible trend reversal. I still cannot say, whether it is turning the direction or not. So waiting for the market and for the stock to show its direction is the proper way to go.

Medifast is in downtrend reversal. The weekly chart created the bullish reversal in oversold zone, but I am waiting for the reversal on daily chart.

I am still thinking on how to manage the trading portfolio better way, whether to quit stock trading for now, save more money and return back later or continue trading while saving more money. I still do not want to give up the trading, so most possible way will be that I will purchase stocks like Visa, Medifast and I will continue saving in a mutual fund or ETF the similar way as I do in my ROTH IRA account.
