    Re: XL-entLady's Account

    Thanks for the tip, Tom. I'll head right over there. Which leveraged funds are you playing with, anything special or does it depend on the day? And are you holding your positions overnight?

    Re: XL-entLady's Account

    It's way past time I updated my account page.

    Taking the summer off and having time to rethink things, I've totally revamped my account. I had started by using a few large positions, thinking...

    Re: XL-entLady's Account

    First of all, I REALLY like the new look! Very chic. ;oP

    And I'm dipping a toe back in. Bought a big chunk of KKD today at $8.51. I love the doughnuts, I hope I like the stock as well.

    Re: etftalk's Account

    Looks like some really good holdings. I had CAT for a while and sold way to early. I need to learn to be more patient with my winners.

    Re: etftalk's Account

    I know what you mean. When the market isn't trending, I can't ever seem to even get on the right side of a trade. That's why I'm sitting out right now waiting to see whether the bulls or bears win....

    Re: Burrocrat's Account

    Good luck with it. When things run up fast like your ZSL has, that's when I like to use trailing stops, FWIW. Others' mileage may vary.

    My positions have been hitting their stops right and left the last two days. I'm almost totally into cash right now.

    Re: Burrocrat's Account

    Okay, I'll try. Say you buy ZSL at $15 with a 2 point trailing stop. ZSL's initial TS would then be $13. ZSL moves to $16 so the TS moves to $14. ZSL moves clear up to $19, and TS is then $17. ...

    I sold two of my positions last week for a good profit. I had trailing stops in for my other two positions. I put in cancellations for those stops to occur at the opening bell because I didn't want...

    Re: XL-entLady's Account

    Silver's price moves are starting to concern me. I've made a lot of money from SLV but I think it's time to set a trailing stop and bail. But I still want to hold precious metals because the...

    Re: Silver

    Congratulations. I was slower than you to get on the train. My cost basis is around $38, so I've made about 20% so far. I'll take that. <giant happy face>

    Re: XL-entLady's Account

    A couple of weeks ago I bought TZOO in the mid-60's, then sold when it hit $70, not because anything in the technical chart or the fundamentals said to, but because I thought it had come too far too...

    Here's what my portfolio looks like today. I harvested my gains on SINA and CMG. I'm thinking of adding some EEM but will hold off until after this long weekend to buy it.

    Re: Silver

    Well, I've been watching ZSL, which is a -2x fund. I've been waiting for it to get below $15 and its almost there. I have a lot of silver so I'm thinking of picking this up as a hedge.

    I don't...

    Yes, today is a good one too. I sold one position, my CMG, but my other positions are holding up well. <big smile>

    Thanks for your visit!

    Every single one of my 14 positions is in the black today. My account is worth more than it's ever been, by an additional 4 figures. I'll probably never be this lucky again so I'm going to enjoy...

    As a result of studies over the weekend I had programmed some buys for the opening bell yesterday. One of them, AMRN, actually ended up being the biggest gainer of the day. I wanted it because it...

    I rode it out yesterday and actually made a little. I was helped by two good buys I made at the opening bell. I don't know if I'll be that lucky today.

    Keeping my account updated by hand was taking too long. I think I have figured out another way to do it. Here is an analytical chart I'm using, built from TC2000 computer software. Please note...
