Trading is very competitive and you have to be able to handle getting your butt kicked.  Paul Tudor Jones
Smart money vs Dumb Money thinking – I will blog my comments here tonight at www.myhurleyinvestment.com

What are the differences?

The only difference between smart money and dumb money is….. Time that they can wait for stocks to come back !!!!

 

Sometimes Smart money hedges better, “knows” they are trading a fundamentally sound company

 

Last week – spoke 2 people about LNCO

 

What’s happening this week and why?

Stock market can’t hold its gains !!! Why? Uncertainty still on Rates, Greece, Earnings, Economic Data, Strong Dollar,

Existing Home sales 4.88 vs est 4.90

CPI .2 vs est .2

Core CPI .2 vs est .1

FHHFA Housing Price index .3 vs est .8

New Home Sales 539 vs est 470

 

Price of oil may go up?!?!?!!!!  HOW
