Hot Hands: A One-Fund Strategy for 2011

Filed under: Newsletters , Mutual Funds “Our annual ‘Hot Hands’ feature is a simple strategy: buy whichever fund has performed best in the previous year and hold onto it throughout the upcoming one,” says fund expert Jim Lowell . The editor of Fidelity Investor explains, “Over the long haul this strategy has delivered hedge fund-like gains without any of the hedge fund snafus. “Buying the Hot Hands fund doesn’t guarantee you are going to beat the index every year. That’s worth repeating; this strategy has not beaten the market every year.

Five Ways to Play a Rebound in Semiconductor Stocks

Filed in Gold Prices, lead by on September 27, 2010 0 Comments

What a difference a year makes – or, for that matter, even a mere quarter. Back in September 2009, most analysts were anticipating a surge in 2010 semiconductor sales that would reflect the upcoming economic recovery. After all, semiconductors are used in virtually every device consumers deem essential these days – from smart phones and notebook computers to coffee makers and gaming consoles. Yet the industry had been mired in a three-year slump that saw global semiconductor sales plunge 9.6% in 2009 alone. By April of this year, the numbers seemed to confirm those expectations . First-quarter worldwide sales had soared 58.3% to $69.2 billion from the prior year quarter’s $43.7 billion, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), the sector’s leading U.S. trade group.

EURUSD Weekly Summary:  Three  consecutive breakouts lead Euro higher, more to come

EURUSD Weekly Summary: Three consecutive breakouts lead Euro higher, more to come The EURUSD continued its bullish run this week. Price closed higher on weekend after break out above the minor bearish channel, topped at 1.3494. Since the strong bullish momentum which started in September 04, we have three consecutive breakouts from previous high leading the bullish momentum as you can see on h4 chart below. For the upcoming week, another strong breakout above 1.3500 (50% Fibonacci retracement of 1.5140 – 1.1876) could trigger another strong bullish momentum targeting 1.3700 and 1.3888 (61.8% Fibonacci retracement of 1.5140 – 1.1876). On the other hand, a failure to make a clear above 1.3500 could trigger some bearish correction testing 1.3400 and 1.3310 support area. Have a great weekend and see you guys next week.

With midterms looming, Democrats take time out to celebrate Obama’s birthday

Filed in Bank Gold, Gold, Gold Spot Market by on August 6, 2010 0 Comments

Maryland’s Democratic Party chair Susan Turnbull is certain Obama’s meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had nothing to do with the upcoming elections. “President Obama made it very clear that the relationship between the U.S. and Israel is unbreakable. In 2008, 78% of the American Jews voted for Obama, for a good reason – the Jewish community knows that the support of Israel and a commitment to its security is not a partisan issue.” Turnbull said.

Time to Reduce Exposure?

Time to Reduce Exposure?

The plot thickens for the rally off of Tuesday morning’s low at 1003 on the near-term point and figure chart, as the emini S&P 500 makes another marginal new high at 1071. That’s the lower portion of my preferred next target zone of 1070-75, but no real selling pressure has emerged just yet that has approached the trigger of a near-term sell signal. To do that, the e-SPU will have to print at 1063.00, breaking the prior upside pivot at 1064.00 from late yesterday, which should initiate a press towards 1055-54 thereafter. That said, as we speak, the index still remains perched right near its rally peak. The question is whether or not it is at or near exhaustion (near term). My pattern and momentum work are telling me that in the absence of upside continuation in the upcoming two hours, decisions will have to be made ahead of the weekend whether or not to reduce exposure on Friday afternoon, after a 7% three-day thrust.

TLTs Pressuring Resistance

TLTs Pressuring Resistance

The iShares 20+ Yr T-Bond ETF (NYSE: TLT) continues to trade in a high-level coil-type pattern that is putting increasing upward pressure on the 100.00 resistance plateau amidst deteriorating economic data, an uncertain business environment, and defensive equity markets. Both the May-June price pattern and the underlying fundamentals argue for a climb to and above 100.00 in the upcoming days, which if sustained will trigger projected targets in the 107-100 target zone thereafter. At this juncture only a decline that breaks 96.00 will neutralize the current bullish technical set-up.

EURUSD Weekly Summary: Bullish Channel Vs Trendline Resistance

EURUSD Weekly Summary: Bullish Channel Vs Trendline Resistance

EURUSD Weekly Summary: Bullish Channel Vs Trendline Resistance The EURUSD bearish momentum is paused this week. Price corrected higher, topped at 1.2151 on Friday after hit 1.1876 on Monday. From long term perspective, this upside pullback is nothing but a normal correction since significant bearish movement from 1.5140 in December 2009. On h4 chart below we can see that price is moving inside a bullish channel indicating upside correction phase but found good resistance around the trendline resistance so far. For the upcoming week, the bullish channel and the trendline resistance will be my technical focus. If price able to move consistently above the trendline resistance, further upside correction at least testing 1.2325/50 region can be expected. On the other hand, break below the bullish channel could end this bullish correction phase and continue the major bearish scenario targeting 1.1800 area before testing 1.1600 region. Have a great weekend and see you guys next week.

Bullish on AMT

All of the action in American Tower Corp. (NYSE: AMT) from the January 2010 high at 44.38 into this week’s low at 38.09 has the right look of a completed major correction, which if accurate means that AMT also has just initiated a new upleg in its larger bull trend off of the November 2008 low at 19.35. If my analysis proves correct, then over the upcoming weeks AMT will carve out a constructive price pattern ahead of a launch into an upmove that projects a test of multi-year resistance between 44.80 and 46.50, on the way to 47.50 to 48.50 thereafter.
