BWT Weekend Synopsis

Aloha from Maui. I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday and that you are all enjoying your holiday weekend. There is no rest on my end as I continue to hunt and stalk for the next round of leaders in this uptrend. Right now, there is no question that overall the market is very […]

BWT Top Current Holdings Review

The strong post-election uptrend has helped produce some solid gains in a lot of my long positions. While it is disappointing that I do not have one single EOD trend following position account for 10% of my account capital, the consolation prize is that every stock I am long is well outperforming the overall market.

On Tuesday our operational models switched to a SELL signal and as we close out another trading week we are leaving the week still under that operational SELL signal.

Weekend Update And Top Current Holdings

I went into this past week with a neutral bias and I am leaving the most recent trading week with a neutral bias. I also stated that if this market did not breakout sooner than later in this sideways consolidation that the path of least resistance would turn down. Following Friday’s action in the overall […]
