If an advisor ever told me that, I'd make sure he was on the hook for any losses, ESPECIALLY if what I wanted to do would shield my funds from those losses.

After that he'd be gone in a heartbeat and someone new would be handling the account. They are advisors, not god...

Going to spend the weekend making another list of stocks to watch Monday and Tuesday. If you look at the charts we bounced off the S&P 500 200dma. If we open Monday without dropping like a rock in the first hour or so. My plan is to buy a few good quality stocks and use today’s low as a stop loss.

The down spikes late in the day were on higher volume than the run up.

Not a good sign from a price/action perspective.

I got lucky and caught the rush of covering in a couple of stocks. The MACD and RSI were pointing towards a late day run. I was lucky and decided to take daily profits while there was some.

Some people know how to make their car go faster by making the horsepower of the engine “go up.”

Some people know how make their car go faster by making the mass of the car parts “go down.”

Some people make money in the stock market when the price of shares “go up.”

Do you know 90% of the ways to make money in the stock market when the price of shares “go down?”

I know a lot of people make a LOT of money by shorting a stock. However I look at it like this. If I buy a stock I am only at risk of losing my initial investment. By shorting a stock, your potential loses are unlimited.

I know everyone doesn’t follow the market and that (unlimited loses) did not make sense to me. But here is the example.

If you buy a stock for say, $25. It can only go to $0.
If you short a stock at say $25. It could go up to any amount at any given time for any reason. And here is what happens.....

But an investor named Joe Campbell was not so lucky when he placed a rather large short position on KaloBios Pharmaceuticals Inc. KBIO earlier this month, only to find out a day later that the shares had shot up about 800% after Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO Martin Shkreli gained control of a majority of KaloBios’ shares. Campbell says he went to bed with some $37,000 in his trading account at E-Trade on Nov. 18 and woke up to a debt of $106,445.
