Thread: JTH's Account Talk

    JTH, yes all the funds are forming a wedge, however, the C fund is showing a upward trend to the bottom of its wedge. They seem to be reacting from a confluence of many strong influences acting upon them. All the stock equities sit at the bottom (as we all know) of some recent significant losses, including dollar devaluation. However, judging from the most recent corrections in oil, credit (real estate) and its damage done, we may now be witnessing the fizzing sound of oil and commodities' money moving out of those investments (save for Iran BS). The only game in town, commodites, is waining. And lastly, with at least some understanding of the real estate recent and impending losses not a mystery, tomorrow, perhaps the next game is stock equities.

    Note, the above is impression, speculation and gut feelings and things still are day by day.

    Great points, aside from oil, I hadn't noticed a drop in commodities until Omnitrader pointed it out in his last video.

    I hope this trend continues. My wallet has been hurting and I need to see some relief in food and gas prices. I have stuff I want to buy and my list is getting longer...

    Considering the recent flood of bad news, I think the markets are holding up rather well.

    Doesn't look like I'll find an entry point today. I was hoping for a flat to higher day in the markets, and wanting that to drive down the F fund.
    If I could just get F at < 12.00 a share (perferable 11.96) I'd be a happy camper and wait for a dip day to buy my some C.

    All of this reminds me of Star Wars

    Gold Two: [the Y-wings are running the gauntlet toward the Death Star reactor-port] The (Financials) guns - they've stopped!
    Gold Five: [realizes why] Stabilize your rear deflectors... Watch for enemy (Oil) fighters.
    Gold Leader: (The Dumb Money) They're coming in! Three marks at 2-10!
    [Gold Two is slain by (Ben Bernanke) Darth Vader and his wingmen; Gold Leader starts to panic]
    Gold Leader: It's no good, I can't maneuver! (No IFTs)
    Gold Five: Stay on target. (Buy high sell low)
    Gold Leader: *We're too close!* (suckers rally)
    Gold Five: Stay on target! (Jim Carmer says the bottom is in)
    Gold Leader: [shouts] Loosen up! (Drill Drill Drill, King Dollar)
    [he too is picked off by (Ben) Vader and (Congress) Company; Gold Five tries to escape but is fatally winged]
    Gold Five: Gold Five to Red leader, (lost the finiancials, oil, jobs, dollar, and the economy) Tiree, lost Dutch.
    Red Leader: I copy, Gold Leader. (tell me something I don't know)
    Gold Five: It came from... behind! (Back door man)
    [crashes]

    I hope everyone has a great day in the markets, as for myself I'll be staying in G over the weekend.

    After the initial rally this week, it's been too difficult to find an entry point that meets my expectations. Fridays do play a factor in my decisions, if you're already in G you minus will stay there ever the weekend.

    Good luck everyone, may the bulls be at your back and your foot be up the bear's azz...

    AM I following the dumb money today with 20% CSI each?

    Dumb luck for me, I'm in a class all week and won't have access to the internet during the day. So I took the plunge and nibblled a little.

    I'll re-evaluate tonight... Best of luck everyone

    The IFT I made Monday morning has not shown up in my account. I'm still showing 100G as of the close of 11 Aug.

    Does this mean my IFT never went through? This will screw up my tracker

    Actually most of the time I do, but I was in a rush to get to class so I skipped it. Now I'd be really pissed if today had been a huge up day! Lessoned learned...

    I jumped back in today 20% each in CSI. This is my first IFT this month.
    Looks like today may be a better day to jump in then last Monday.

    Lucky my first IFT didn't go through.

    Unlucky my tracker is now off...

    Good luck everyone

    It's been an interesting week. I've used up my last IFT for the month. I sold some of the weaker and bought more of the stronger. If things go down from here, I'll hold on for a bit. If they go up, I'll scale back into G.

    As of Thursday I'm .47% MTD. I don't want to be in this market more then I have to and less then 50% of the time would be ideal.

    Effective EOB today

    G 40%
    F 5%
    C 10%
    S 30%
    I 15%

    Good luck everyone and I hope you guys have a nice long relaxing weekend.

    Interesting to note that the G fund is leading all others.

    I happen to like the days when the markets start off to the downside. It gives me a better sense of what I want to do. I may skim back a little from each fund today.

    In the red with no IFTs left I get the luxurious choice of either going back to G and not making any profit for the month, or riding this wave down?

    Damm you Mr Long, you and your minions are the spawn of Satan.
