“When the odds are against you, you have to dig deep… deeper than you thought was in your power.  You have to find that inner strength and use it to focus on what matters.  It’s only then that you’ll have clarity.  Right now, your mind is racing.  Find that inner strength and focus on what matters most.”  – Christopher David Peterson – The Curse of Atlantis

#1      What am I doing and why?

I am collar trading based on technical crossovers and allowing 2 to 4 days for those crossovers to validate themselves

 

#2      What has helped you the most with trading?

Education but after education I read a lot !!!  I probably spend 2 hours a day reading about the market, stock news that I am in, Investopedia to better understand what others look at like valuation, cash flow, future earnings projections, etc….

 

What’s happening this week and why?

China GDP better than expected but still less than last year

NAHB Housing Market Index 57 vs est 58

Building permits 1032 vs est 1060

Housing starts 1089 vs est 1040

 

Where will our market end this week?

It all comes down to the Thursday ECB meeting and if Draghi can actually do something “big”

Rumor is the ECB will buy 58 Billion (Euros) worth of government back bonds

 

 

DJIA – Technically still bearish, below the 50 SMA

How I am looking to trade?

I am prepared for earnings

 Screen Shot 01-20-15 at 07.44 PM

True cost basis for the stock is closer to $107 due to short puts getting into the stock, short calls against the shares and long put profits
