$PEP Challenged. $KO $MCD $CL


Yesterday I enterd long $KO and short $CL .

$FFIV Underperfomance. $VMW $CRM



80% of my trades in the last volatile month have been pair trades. Above one of the correlations I have been trading. Going short $FFIV everytime it outperforms the other two has worked well. More correlations I have traded recently to follow.

$CSCO Relative Weakness After 11.00

CSCO went nowhere after 11.00....particularly in relation to $SPY. What does it mean? Just resting for another leg up or signalling that was as much of a pop as we´ll see?

Note to Self on Buying Strong Stocks $TPX , $QCOR

For the hundred millionth time man, buy strong stocks on pullbacks...not when they are making new highs. That way your stop-loss can be much smaller AND you will be in the stock as it makes new highs. I made money in $QCOR and lost in $TPX. Could have made so much more just by following that simple plan. Concentrate man!!! Bad Boy!
