Question #3. For your answer to Question #1, please share what specific reason(s) you think the S&P500 will be heading the direction you chose.

“Higher” Respondent Answers:

• Good economic news !
• trend is still up and no sign of a correction yet
• still finishing wave 5
• trend
• seasonnal time for higher stock market
• seasonal conditions, holiday shopping
• Law of physics, a body in motion tends to remain in motion. In this case UP. Not too confident that all is well in the economy and I trade with caution unless we build a solid base at these market levels and then blast off. So, the transd is UP until it is NOT!

“Lower” Respondent Answers:

• We are ready for a reverion, to men,,way hi 9% above 50dma,,
• Flat to down a lot of volume came into DIS this week profit taking inevitable
• Continued overbought up to and including the monthly charts, rising on declining momentum, pundits are running out of solid credible reasons for a continued rally.
• market to enter a holding pattern to much dumb money sploshing around 4x normal volume on DIS on an upday signals major top in that stock and the rest of the market
• since I’m long, it must be going lower
• The S&P is approaching its upper Bollinger band at about 3126; and it tends to fall back when it hits it.
• Hopium will fade again when people start to realize that China trade rumors are just rumors being foisted on the american public by Trump and his lying co-conspirators. Read China’s word . They will not enter into an agreement without a release of all tariffs.
• Market is losing upside momentum. Earnings reports are coming to an end except for retail.

Question #4. What procedures do you use for trade management? (e.g. position size, stops, scaling in or out, etc.)

• 8% stop loss—
• Stops
• Position sizing is critical and always honor your “hard” stop.
• position sizing and stops
• stops
• position size
• I set position sizes carefully, and exit losing trades more quickly than in earlier years.
• Good solid rules that I have developed over the years.
• trailing stop
• enter consumer discretionary spending companies
• My trade management depends on what type of trade I am in. Options are given a lot of room to work given that they are already very limited risk. Sometimes a stop on a new stock or ETF position as I scale into it and build a position. Some things I follow have a natural cycle and I will never take them off, selling options for income. Unless I see something very bad in the wind and accumulated profits are fast disappearing, my “forever stocks” are a hold until they are not.


Question #5. Additional Comments/Questions/Suggestions?

• none
