What To Focus On - Part Two

My blog of November 27th was entitled "What to Focus On". Please read it. This week we are feeling a bit of a hangover. Last's weeks triple witching event is over. Stocks that were forced to contract in price to sqeeze out spectatate positions on them are now free to resume there old trading patterns. This Monday morning at 10:20 a.m. the Djia is up 301 points. There are also losers. So now what? Mark on your calendar exactly three months down the road how the markets traded on the first morning after one of these triple witching events and use this same logic to catch the upside on the next "hangeover" day like this. How do you pick the winners? Find a few stocks that have enjoyed a recent upswing and play them to pop on the first trading session after one of these events. This blog is just an observation.

Working The Market To Make $200.00 On A Friday Morning

"Boeing" was nervous on the opening and "Caterpillar" flexed it's muscles in the usual way. I had an hour to spare but wasn't interested in following the market all day so I did some trading, 3 buys and sells and got tired towards the end and closed out the third position to get on with my day. The end result was a $200.00 profit. Here is what it all looks like.
I could have done better but I am o.k. with what happened. Early Friday morning trading can work well if your focused. I was out in just under 50 minutes."Boeing" closed down the day forty cents and "Caterpillar" closed up eighteen cents. It was a day which was difficult to break their bank.
