Don't happen often but I agree with the above post. The US has not tried to win a conflict since WW2. France was the only country to win a conflict with a Islamic insurgence in Algeria. To win France has to abandon its lofty Western values. The French military recruited a third column in its own military and police force to carry out kidnapping ,interrogation , summary executions and secret burials of suspected insurgents.
Investors often buy another stock in the sector or a sector ETF to replace the tax sell off security. One REIT I hold I think will sell off deeper in December is NRF. It's taxable spinoff of NRE provides a paper loss on a taxable event. Taking the loss to cancell the gain seems to be in progress.
Hedge funds have the high flyer techs pumped to the hilt, trying to salvage the year on there backs. Sooner or later greed will take over and some cash will flow to the better beaten down .
I give the spell grammar police no respect and no quarter. Its usually a domineering personality with feeling and no real argument on a issue.
I only use a desktop day trading with TA. Most of my posts and trades are from a IPad somewhere in the house. With few on IPhone when on the run during the day. I make more mistakes that cost money especially with options when trading on a IPhone.
I bet many in taxable accounts are or will sell there NRF to take the tax loss to offset the NRE spin off tax burden. For that reason I have not added but will wait until tax selling is finished.
Mr Putin does not want war with anyone, he is a man of piece. He wants a piece of all former Soviet countries for a nostalgic feel good moment for the huddled masses in Russia. Mr. Putin is backing the Syrian government because they back him and he wants to be prescieved as a man of his word, unlike the wobbling vacillating western leaders.
I prefer NRZ over AGNC but have traded it in the past. The only interesting thing about there MB is there resident troll who I named Bozo years ago. He is the hardest working troll in the business with hundreds of logins and many of them exhibit different personalities. When AGNC was going well there MB was a fantastic meeting place for traders and investors . But AGNC tanked and Bozo moved in and blanked the entire screen with BS and everyone moved on.
I had my GARS on sale Wed. at $14 , it hit $13.99 and I upped it a bit. It should peak a day or two before the 12/9 ExDay . But might well be over $15 next year.
I expect lackluster market today , would be suprised with big movement in either direction. Any big movement would be a pleasant surprise .
Many bearish stories trying to talk the market down on a short trading day. I have a few low ball buys and high ball sell orders in place and doubt if any hit.
I wish everyone a good meal with there family and friends. All should be great full for family ,spiritual and material abundance that provide independence and security.
"Super Contango" or Souper Contango ? I have developed a distrust of any spoken or written word proportion to know or have a edge in predicting oil price movement . They made a bet on short term price movement and are looking for others to tag along.
You might be right uncle Carl. I kicked myself for not adding this morning at about $11.50. I,m small in this I can add now and double down if the opportunity is there in December. Currently have 60% cash.
