Stocks for July 28, 2008

Here is the list for the week of July 28. It is comprised of stocks passing at least three of the five filters. It seems to me that both the number of stocks passing the weekly list and the number of stocks in the IBD Supply/Demand list are shrinking.

I am reading through Van Tharp's other trading book, Trade Your Way to Financial Freedom. The notion that he keeps driving home is one of Expectancy, which should be the amount that you would expect to make on a given trade. It will take into account both

  • differences between average wins and losses and
  • frequency of wins and losses
Taleb would not be happy, probably because there are large, uncontrolled losses lurking out there. Nevertheless, the book is interesting and the example well chosen.

The Market remains in Red Light mode according to the 1-2-3 model. It has moved back to three stars in the inflation model ("Inflation Danger"), the same as last week. Enjoy your trading this week, but keep your eyes peeled.
