Thread: DreamboatAnnie's Account Talk

    So looked at charts last night and this morning. I am now invested 50%G, 25%I and 25%F, but have decided to move more to equities. S fund looks stronger than C, though neither have touched the 20 EMA on Stochastics... but S fund looks to be moving back up. Possibly folks are hopeful something will happen in Congress next week... not holding my breath but I am guessing it might be worth a try. MACD is still not crossed above its signal line but close so until that happens, I am going to TRY to remember this should be a short play--few days.

    New allocation is going to be 70%S - 15%C - 15%I. Will see how this works out....

    Come on!!!

    I am wishing everyone the best on investments !!!!!!!

    Just as FYI - The French vote, first round for President, is this Sunday. So there is some possibility its' outcome could affect markets if one person gets more than 50% and who it is. Earlier, I heard if it were a person of either extreme, far left or far right, it could shake things up. If no majority, the two top persons move to deciding election on May 7th and then winner takes office May 14th. Whewwww.... they don't mess around!!

    Here is a short good article on this.

    That is the big question mark. How will the French election affect the "I" fund? Still 100% "I" and I haven't decided what to do yet. For May I'm pretty sure I will go 50/50 "CS".
    May the force be with us.

    The thought is that if one of the candidates wins or ties for the runoff, and they favor border controls or moving out of the European Union or favor an alliance with Putin (yes, unbelievably one of them likes that!), this could mark continued deterioration of the European Union's stability. Similar to effects of the Grexit and Brexit events last year.

    Well NASA... Not sure the I fund is the best place to be... Then again, the market did recover in a few weeks after Brexit though I think if LePen wins this would be a much bigger deal, i.e. Market drop!!! Will see...I'm in I fund at 15% but may exit to G ....just not certain yet. Lets see how markets react on Monday.


    Update: As of a couple hours ago, Macron and Le Pen are projected to be the two that will run off on May 7th per exit polls. Le Pen favors leaving the European Union and curbing immigrations, while Macron embraces the European union and calls for tolerance. He started his career as a socialist, but is now classed as a centrist. Sound familiar???

    Not sure how things will play out this week but plan to go 50/50 "CS" by end of the week.

    Hi!! So LePen and Macron will have run off in France, two weeks away. I believe the market is up because Macron is more moderate and in the running.

    I MAY exit I fund (15%) today to hopefully pocket gains. Just hoping the conversion will hit today. Not really sure how that will work??????? I've never understood that nor liked the I fund though its been doing very well this year. Hmmm....?

    Market thinks Macron will win and betting houses are giving him great odds. However, I am recalling that the Brexit non-exit odds were very high back in June, with betting houses saying No exit was at 80%. Obviously, while the betting houses lost by a very slim margin, their odds were way off! so no telling what happens on that.

    French election: Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen to fight for presidency - BBC News

    So Europe is high right now and EFA is at +2% right now. Hence, I am taking my winnings and say, whewww...the charts look great now with intraday way above the upper Bollinger band.

    Best wishes to everyone!!!!!!!

    P.S. Still debating if I reduce exposure on S and C funds. Lots of earnings reports this week and all next week as well. I will likely stay in at least 40% as charts look so good (due to todays rise) and Trump unveils tax plan Wednesday, though I doubt anything but debt ceiling gets voted on per all the political news. However, when Trump announced tax plan was coming this past Friday, the market rose when he announced that around 3 pm Eastern or so but ten dropped back again though not as low. Sounds like people still have a wait and see attitude on that. So not sure how much a Wednesday announcement will play out, especially if it does not have enough details or without a firmer intent on if it will happen this year. Then again, there is talk of a possible though unlikely vote on healthcare Saturday??? Hmmm.... we will see...

    Doses anyone know how the conversion works and whether today's market action in EFA will be included in today's closing price? I thought there was a delay of 1 day????

    I believe it has to do with the difference between the market closing in Europe vs. the market closing in the U.S.

    I would have to go back a few years and search for a real good answer. I believe Squalebear had a good explanation on the "I" fund corrections.
