What Do We Do Monday Morning?, Issue #384 - If Obamacare is so great...
August 18, 2013
If Obamacare is so great...
If Obamacare is so great... how come everyone wants out?
Seriously, is this the best this country can do?
Allen West: "If America reelects Obama to a second term, we deserve all the pain and misery that will ensue."
CNBC/Fox News: Recent Fox poll shows 95% of Fox viewers think Obama should be impeached. Everything depends on the November elections.
Markets: Down but not out... yet (60% of DJ-30 components are still in primary uptrends).
If you think Steven Primo's Pro Traders Strategies DVD's are expensive, try ignorance.
Learning from professionals is always a good investment (IMO).
ION OPTIONS Ron, "Unexpected news can destroy any chart!", Ianieri has taught professional traders/market makers how to use options (Not trade them). Let him teach you.
MarketClub 'Trade Triangle' technology approach to timing is, IMO, profoundly effective.

As of 7/31, corporate stock earnings yields on the S&P 500 (SPY) still above corporate bond yields (6.72% vs. 3.25%) thus favoring corporate stocks over corporate bonds 2.07 to 1. Keep your eye on earnings yields. That's what you're being paid to take risk. Dividend yields are only part of the picture. Gold down -18.05% vs. 1 yr ago (measure of inflation).
Countdown till 2014 elections: 12 weeks.
W. D. Gann, a keen market observer, although not an astronomer, nevertheless, was fascinated by the apparent coincidence of important market 'pivot points' and astronomical dates. Theories exist for estimating time and price of important market turning points but astronomical occurrences are computed with mathematical certainty.
There is no logical reason why these occurrences should coincide yet, empirically, they have.
The 'Full Moon' and 'New Moon', among others, have been cited. Therefore, one might be well advised to be aware of their occurrence. Note: The first 5 business days of 2008 concluded on a 'New Moon' and we all know how that worked out. Coincidence?
8/6 Tuesday - New Moon.
8/20 Tuesday - Full Moon.
During the next two weeks, the following DJ-30 components report earnings. Keep a sharp eye out for price swings, up or down, (possible trading on 'inside information'?) leading up to 'earnings day' (Subject to revision):
8/21 HPQ (2Q2013 earnings season ends).
