Managed to add some new positions today on breakouts in FCX, CAT, and TFC. The first two play into the developing trend I'm seeing in companies that benefit from new construction. TFC is a bank so...

Seems that some potential buys from earlier this week are beginning to show signs of holding higher instead of immediately failing back through the breakout. My view is a yellow caution light. Small...

I imagine my criteria will become more and more selective as the years go by. 80/20 principle is relevant here I think. 80% of a trend-follower's gains will be made on the 20% or so trades that are...

Nothing for me today. Stopped on ON and SONO. Down to three remaining positions and about 15% invested. Keeping the gunpowder dry until the next opportunity comes around.
