Thread: BooDog's Account Talk

  1. #1

    Default BooDog's Account Talk

    12/7/2018 85% G 5% C S & I
    1/4/2019 70% G 10% each C S I
    Retirement target date Oct 2029 at age 65, ehhhh if everything's good maybe Oct 2031.

    Not expecting a lot of excitement on this thread since I'm use to commenting on others. Finally joined the tracker which the rules suggested creating my own thread.

    Personal Investment Performance (PIP) for the past 12 months ending 12/31/2018 is 1.41%.
    That's gotta be the slowest year yet for me. My lack of aggression shows, but the volatility for the most part kept me on the sidelines.

    Best of luck to all!!!

    Pretty much the same activity we've been seeing. Major gap up, retrace sometimes into the red then up she goes again.
    Expecting somewhat dovish FE remarks to almost flat. Expecting a very green close. Though maybe we're going too far too fast? Will we see a pull back?

    I'll be pulling some out. Moving to 90%G 5%S 5%C Last move of the month, may miss out on the DJI pushing through 25k before the end of the month so keeping at least some lunch money in play.

    IFT: 10% C S & I, 70% G. We could be topping here so only increased my position a little. Bulls may keep the pressure to cut through resistance as well. I'm in for that. Not expecting to make a run for the lead on the 2019 tracker, slow and steady works for me.

    I mentioned on Sniper's thread the other day about the DOW possibly holding its 25K support line. Glad that it id and not frustrated one bit that I didn't take advantage. We very well could break through resistance and truck to higher resistance levels. But with the potential volatility, I'll be fat dumb and happy with my 30% stake.

    Good luck!!

    IFT 100% G at close today, no more moves till March. One thing I hate most is a media driven market but learning to roll with it. You could say I was shaken out though I'd rather miss out now than see support break tomorrow or next week.

    Retail news, China Trade stuff and a threatening Fed? I'll wait it out a bit.

    Maybe just a day early. Still don’t see a confirmation of upside. Topping is definitely a possibility right now.

    Very possible indeed. My charts were looking for the DOW to hit 27k before a major pull back, maybe even more on the melt up theory. Now I want this to be a normal February and dip big time. There's still plenty of time later for the melt up.

    Always trust your charts, following the news will drive you mad and just make you second guess all your decisions. Honestly I stopped following the news and started performing much better. As much as possible I try to "trade in a black hole", no outside distractions, just me and the charts.

    Nothing makes sense in this market (up on bad news, down on good news, then up on good news, etc), and the only way to trade it is to not try to make sense out of anything, just respond to what it's doing and how you read it.
