Gosh, where to start? Regular followers of the blog will have noticed a lack of posts. The reasons are probably obvious, but for the benefit of anyone reading this in the far flung future (if anyone is still around then), this is the time the world is gripped by a global pandemic. Some people are taking Coronavirus / COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 more seriously than others. Everyone is going to have to take it seriously when it hits close to them, and it will…Continue reading “Trading Update / COVID-19”
Here are a couple of Friday trades to round out the week.Continue reading “Rounding Out The Week”
It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve sat down and traded properly. The whole Walsh family has been sick. No covid-19 here, fortunately, but it’s not been pleasant. The older I get the longer it takes me to get over these things, so even after supposedly beating the lurgy, my energy and motivation have been somewhat sapped.
Anyway, enough self-pity, there’s a market out there to be traded. By all accounts I’ve missed some stellar moves (usual caveats about profiting from other people’s misfortune apply). Monday didn’t strike me as much in the way of special, but on-off core stock GILD provided a couple of nice setups:Continue reading “Back In The Saddle”
The whole Walsh family is sick. I shouldn’t complain, it’s not like we’ve been struck down by COVID-19 (not yet, anyway). Plenty of people are worse off than we are. It’s still horrible though. I’m the least affected, but it’s all relative. Anyway, the upshot is that there has been very little trading going on here this week.
We might not have been infected by a Chinese virus, but I did manage to get a nice little trade in on a Chinese stock on Wednesday:Continue reading “Trading While Sick”
Okay, I couldn’t resist posting this one. It’s a four-figure winner on AIG, sorry.Continue reading “A Quick Morning’s Work”
I didn’t start this week until late as I took an extra-long weekend. Such is the joy of not working for the man. Wednesday appears to have been a good day to get back in front of the screen though, because it offered up this nice two-biter from TAP:Continue reading “Missing Two Bites of The Cherry”
To end the week, having more or less stuck to my goal of posting smaller winners, here’s one on the bigger end of the small side, if that makes sense. It’s not a four-figure banger, but it was a decent-sized regular winner.Continue reading “The Bigger End of Small”
I’m keeping up my efforts to post smaller wins this week, but there was a banger of a winner that I want to share here too.
First off, here’s the smaller one. It was on our old friend GILD:Continue reading “Wrestling Profits From The Stock Market”
In keeping with the last few posts, let’s start with a smaller win. And then we’ll see a much bigger one, because it was there for the taking and it would be rude not to.
Here’s the chart for GILD, which as we can see, started out badly:Continue reading “A Tale of Two Trades”
