Bulls on parade

May 19th, 2009

The Market is clearly moving against me. My stop-loss orders have been triggered for SKF, SDS and Xact Bear yesterday or today. I lost some, but not too much. I still think this is a premature rally and that the fundamentals just isn’t there yet, but there’s no arguing with the Market, since only price pays. I’m mostly in cash right now, trying to figure out the direction of the markets for the rest of the week. The OMX Exchange closes midday tomorrow and is closed on Thursday, so I probably will not enter anymore positions at the OMX. The American markets are open as regular and I am tempted to ride this upwards push for the week, perhaps with Direxion Daily Financial Bull 3X (FAS) because of the huge leverage (of course this is risky). But I will for sure get out before the weekend in that case.

On a note of some trades that actually gone my way yesterday and today is PA Resources. I have, for quite some months, had a huge exposure in their convertible KV1 (which I sold of 75% of last week only to buy back at a lower price yesterday). Yesterday the company was mentioned very favorably in the Swedish stock-picking magazine Börsveckan. The stock jumped some 8% yesterday and is up 8% today also. The Convertible is not far behind, but still the favorable lag in its price is a bankable reality. For traders the stock is preferred because of the larger movements in price, but the convertible is far better for long-time investments (the last date to convert is september 2013).
