Remarkably Resilient

Once again the market continues to demonstrate great resiliency. This week is could have been much more chaotic. It was down for the week, but we saw a nice rise on Friday after the opening drop. All of this with North Korea threatening war and a bad jobs report….. I was really glad to see the steady move upward on Friday.

My timing could have been better, but I did add to initial position in CHD and MCD for long term holdings and also picked up more IBB and IWM for a trade.

What did I see in my weekend review?

The 10-yr Treasury yield is at 1.69

IBD (Investor Business Daily): Dropped to: Uptrend Under Pressure

Copernicus Systems: Long, but it was close …IMHO

Moneys Flows:  All positive, but all still trending down

Currently my "Stocks for a Trade" now consists of:
(All gains or losses shown are the total since purchase)
RGR -2.77% now at a loss, but perhaps the slide has stopped, one comfort is the 3.3% yield if I do  hold this for a while.
GILD  +9.37% down a little, will continue to hold as biotech’s appear very strong.
JCOM  +2.43% still positive but down too much

ETF’s for a trade are:
GLD  -5.09%
EWA  -1.26%
IWM  -1.87%
EFA  -.22%
IBB   +1.32%
EWJ +2.29%, had a drop and then recovered nicely 

What will I do?

With the signals seen I should at least do some trimming; will likely sell EWA (Australia), hate taking a loss now as it could find its footing, but it’s probably best. Will also look to sell JCOM  at a modest profit, togethter these should net a little gain.

I would like to pick up YHOO after selling JCOM but will wait to see the events of the first part of next week

I hope you have a great week
