Put orders through for TDB 900 902 911 after seeing the markets in red. Was surprised to see that the indices were actually in the green come end of day prices.
Interesting to see you timing the market using e-series MFs...

This is not how it works :)

Yeah I know it's not the recommended method, but I prefer trying to add on the lows/dips so I can lower my average cost and collar cost average my money rather than doing a lump sum in timea of uncertainty

hold on to GILD. it will be a little volatile after initial flurry of buying/covering. Trend has changed. I would add to already overweight position on a pull back.

BBY wants to close the gap at 50.
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!

I am just trying to get back to even with my ACB being $85.75, although I guess even might be a bit lower if I count up the dividends over the last couple years. I will be very tempted to take a big chunk off the table when it gets to even as it now makes up about 8% of my portfolio.

Just perusing the last dozen top picks on BNN and there have been a lot of BNS recommendations. I don't own it but it's clearly the most recommended on there recently.

BTW anyone not in biotech I recommend just buy the IBB and save yourself the headache of trying to find the stock that's going to go up next.

Big day for CGX. Bottom or DCB?

I +1 that, buy IBB and XBI and don't worry about picking the winner (it's easier to pick losers, look at TEVA/MYL/BMY/etc...)
I'm stil RED in GILD after 2 years, while IBB/XBI are near highs...

Thinking Harvey trade. Is there a good ETF tracking US building material stocks? XLB and similar won't work because they are weighted mostly towards chemical manufacturing. I'm looking specifically for building materials that would be used in home construction. And not something like Home Depot because, while not a terrible pick, the big companies and insurers likely skip the middle man.

Not an ETF answer, but other companies, https://www.cnbc.com/2017/08/30/cramer- ... arvey.html

btw, nothing is clear and we are NOT out of woods yet. Big boys are selling as evidenced by continued weakness in breadth indicator.
5% correction is due and it will happen quick.
my target is 2320
so how quick will this 5% correction happen?
