Ready For Liftoff








Markets Rally for Sixth Straight Week

As the Jobs Number was released this morning at 8:30 AM EST the evidence became quite clear that the Federal Reserve has more than enough reasons to start the liftoff of Federal Funds rate from near zero. The payrolls number came in at 271,000 jobs added for the month of October. The unemployment rate fell to a seven year low of 5.0%. Even though the market's greatest fears seem to be developing, we were still able to hold the gains for the week.
Here is a look at the Standard & Poor's 500 Index for the year:
Don't Argue With Price
The first rule of being successful in this market is don't argue with price. Price is what pays you profits and price will make you broke if you let it. What I'm really saying is don't be stubborn. You don't have to be right, you just have to make money. Too many are all about trying to predict where markets will go and when they don't go as predicted their pride tends to get the best of them. I've been skeptical of this rally and remain cautious. However I still have many more longs than shorts on the Focus List simply because that is what the insiders are telling me. I'm not going to ignore successful insiders just to be right. I'm following these insiders for one reason. That is to have them lead me to success. I know that their knowledge of their industries and their companies is a much better indicator than my "Gut" and yours for that matter.
The Right Direction 
Last week we added the projected targets and projected risks to the companies we are putting on the Focus List. This addition is probably going to help much more than I first anticipated. By keeping our Reward/Risk ratios in check it is helping us cut losers faster and hang onto winners longer. When you can train your mind to do those two things it will be much easier to meet your financial goals. Unfortunately, it is easier said than done to cut those losers, but we have to keep disciplined. I'm very excited about our performance leading to year end and I think we can close out the year very strong.
Have a great weekend!
