Market melt-up, no other explaination

US Airlines ATH despite oil at 3-year high, okay
Oil rig count UP today, oil still record high, okay
AMZN really hasn't gone RED in 2018, and is +12% YTD already, okay
and GOLD is also up

Nothing is down, besides Weed stocks (today) I guess

Utilities and REITs are also down. Also many financials are mildly down. The market's being a bit ridiculous lately, but there are still opportunities in some pockets.

Reports say DE Shaw took activist position in LOW.

I am long but it smells very fishy.

Doubled exposure in Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) @ $179.20 US.

Will hold into earnings.

I didn't understand the reason behind the news feed change as I don't have a Facebook account but if what WSJ reports is half true, this should be bullish not negative to FB's bottom line...

Sold about 1/3 of my BNS at 82.02 and 1/10 of RY at 105.16. Bought FB in my TFSA at 179.45 and also started a very small position in XEF.

It was a pretty impulsive move. Not sure if this was a good idea.

I hope one day I can sell @ 200 but it will drop couple of times before that, most likely.

Dow is only 1% (or 1 day) away from 26000, LOL, after crossing 25K just LAST WEEK (Jan 4th)

SPY is +4% YTD
DOW is +4.5% YTD

quoting someone
Unreal
2 straight weeks and 9 days of UP! RSI off the charts

Never heard of this firm before, but rising tide lifts all ships
After spending many years in Wall Street and after making and losing millions of dollars I want to tell you this: it never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It was always my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight!

This, of course, can continue for some time. But its not investing anymore. Gogo markets that take stair steps up and elevetor shaft down.

Im selling stocks Im long and that i dont anticipate a lot of upside. Closing all downside exposure too.
There are signs we could turn soon:
VIX futures ended up on a massive day
Yen rallied against dollar
Gold is up
Bonds finished strong and expecting more upside
Volume has been pathetic, mostly machines trading.
Yet, new funds inflow is some kind of record - typical chasing by retail investors in the ending bull market.

Sold all M, NKE, CF
Sold covered calls in GE, TEVA, HTZ, GILD, CELG

Will keep TAP, BUD and a little EXPE as they are rising

P.S. dont get FB enthusiasm. Im long, but stock has run up way ahead of EPS growth. Its only down 3-4%. Redesigning news feed will limit ads, although I haven't seen how it looks now (did not log in for 8 years). Lol

Finally bought 20 shares of Boeing a couple days ago, wish I had bought more now (I've been "waiting for a dip" for 2 years to enter on Boeing which instead lead to ATH...). We'll see what earnings brings and may add more.

Wondering if I should add to my ROBO position now or wait a bit...

I call this ultimate FOMO
You say 2y? BA was 100 in Jan/Feb 2016.
Its funny how beaten down stocks unwanted, and runaway trains are scooped up mindlessly. Good luck

I'm just posting what I bought (as per thread title).
I think it was also you who ragged on me when I bought Amazon a few months ago telling me I must like losing money. Are these comments really necessary? How do they encourage people to post what they bought/what they are thinking of buying? It's one thing to disagree with the investment, and another thing to call "mindless" and "like losing money" (I apologize if this wasn't you, but I'm pretty sure it was)

edit: found it, page 950
