Mike Swanson who runs www.wallstreetwindow.com was so kind as to interview me again. He asked me about my thoughts on Parabolic moves, Gold, the next sector with the potential to move higher, SMH – Semiconductor Index ETF, and to describe the entry rationale of one of my recent trades MXWL – Maxwell Technologies. We also talked about the importance of being able to adapt to changing markets, something I wrote about in my Niccolò Machiavelli post.
You can also listen to the interview on Mike Swanson’s website: http://www.wallstreetwindow.com/node/9753
Here are the two quotes I bring up during our interview:
Paul Tudor Jones on Late Stage Bull Markets:
While I am a staunch advocate of higher education, there is no training, classroom or otherwise that can prepare for trading the last third of a move, whether it’s the end of a bull market or the end of a bear market.
Joe Vidich of Hedge Fund Market Wizard fame on Concept Stocks:
As an equity trader, I learned the short-selling lessons relatively early. There is no high for a concept stock. It is always better to be long before they have already moved a lot than to try to figure out where to go short.
I also go through one of my recent trades, MXWL – Maxwell Technologies, a stock that has great story stock potential. I posted the chart on Twitter when I entered. As I mention during the interview, when I started to share on Twitter I made the decision that I would provide additional content, not available on my website, as an incentive to follow me.
