Last time I was in AAL it was 38.00. Was looking to buy, but haven't followed it. Why has it dropped
so much more than DAL when it's cheaper? thanks
So what is the safest thing to be in aside from cash. He recommended short XLU and buy REM.
I was in RWM and SH. This market doesn't seem to want to go down.
From the chart TLT seems like the safest. How about JNK or PFF? At least you get a monthly div.
Any other suggestions?
So If nobody knows if the market will go up or down, what about the TLT ?
It's not very volatile and you get a monthly div. you don't get anything in SH or short the SPY, but what will happen if they raise the rates? Will the TLT drop a lot?
Even if you forget about the lousy div., in 3 months, SPY was down over 7% and TLT was only down about 3%.
I was in RWM, but that's a lot more volatile than SH, so I'm not in that right now.
What about the XLF ? It should go up if they raise rates but if the market drops. I guess
that will drop too. I 'd like to find something to trade with low volatility and a monthly
dividend, but I haven't found anything yet besides TLT.
WOW!! almost a dollar drop from the high. down 5%.
The only good thing is it's not marginable!!
I think its way too dangerous for me though. I'll probably
go back to RWM or SH. They don't drop so much!!, although
I buy them on margin.!!
The reason I went in VXX was because I expected the market to drop
a lot after the fed hike news, but I'm not doing too good right now. I bought at 16.20.!! Hope it's back up tomorrow, but since it's down so much and everyone expects the markets to correct I took a shot.
Thanks. So you watch the XIV when your in the VXX. Is that like when I'm in the
RWM, I watch IWM and SPY. I will check out the XIV. Is it the inverse of VXX?
It looks like you sold at a good price, down to 15.75 !! First time I've ever bought this. WoW, really volatile!!
I keep expecting this market to go down huge. I don't know what's keeping it up!!
So when is the big sell off in SPY and IWM before or after 2:00 . I'm in RWM because it normally makes bigger moves than SH, so I'm hoping the IWM drops a lot.
I was in RWM yesterday morning and sold to buy GLD. That was a big mistake.!!
If the whole market drops wouldn't the IWM drop more than SPY?
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Carl has been very vocal in recent weeks in the media” about his negative views. ‘We’re much more concerned about the market going down 20% than we are it going up 20%. And so the significant weighting to the short side reflects that.” Icahn was not on the call.
An investment fund run by the 80-year-old Icahn had a net short position of 149% at the end of the first quarter. Icahn is considerably more bearish than he was at the end of 2015, when the fund’s net short position was 25%. A year ago, the fund had a net long position of 4%. It’s rare to see a fund outside a dedicated short fund with such a large bearish stance.
The 149% net short position was disclosed by the management of Icahn Enterprises (IEP), which holds a $1.8 billion
Late last month on CNBC, Icahn warned “there will be a day of reckoning unless we get fiscal stimulus.
Are they going to raise rates?
No comments from the As Ho stock alert.I'm so tired of these jerks taking up all the message boards!!
I wish they're give it up already. No one reads them.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Is there anyway to watch CNBC live on your PC., sometimes the broker's stops working.
I just shorted XME today. I waited too long. Hope I didn't get in too late. Someone is putting a huge bet
that it goes down to 20.00 by sept ? Is that correct? It almost there!!
I guess everyone is holding into earnings? I'm always afraid with most stocks but this usually has good earnings?? I just bought this today for first time.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Holly Shiete!! Glad I sold at 26.43 pre-market. My 1700 gain would have disappeared!!
Bought RWM. down a little but I'm not too worried. It won't make a big move like GDX!!
Bought Friday and sold at 26.43.I didn't even expect to get that so quick. Probably going higher, but I'm afraid of what happens if it drops.I missed the huge move up!!
I'm buying XLU if I get it at $48.00 today.
