Financial Friday #9


Crappy week in the Market this week. Pretty much everything took a dive. Currently all the financials seems to be consolidating so there are a bunch of long term buys out there. I like BAC at 3 as a long term buy and hold position. It may drop some more but odds are it is going to rebound in the near future. It could also go to zero but the buy in is low so it is decent gamble.

This week I moved away from financials Ford Motor company was showing a nice consolidation channel. I decided to short. I shorted 1000 shared at $1.92. I was able to get in right at the top of the channel. I stuck a stop behind it for protect but held as it fell out of the channel. The consolidation pattern lead me to believe it would break through the bottom line in the chart. It did and I was able to cover the short at $1.70. Thus I made $220



I am pulling my original $300 out. I have been lucky but I don’t want to risk my original capital so I am moving the $300 to a money market account

Currently balance
Trading 1862
Money Market 300

Total 2162

I promise I will get a non financial post up soon.

I have a response from American Airlines I need to figure out how to scan in.
