What will happen to the typical June Swoon this year?

Apparently Not and the buy the dippers are back but they are different. 

How are they different? Not in FANG – Facebook, AAPL, NVDA, NFLX, GOOG, ALPHABET, AMZN

Rotating out of big tech into boring and financials

Boring – PG, GE,

I don’t just throw protection on because of one bad day

I need reasons – breaking of the 50 SMA, Technical crossovers, macro news, specific news events ie…CFO, CEO change

What do two consecutives down or up days do to spreads?  Quick profits or real quick losses – Lance

Big value changes on swings in the market, could get you out of the trade on limit loss orders

Things happen and one day or even one week shouldn’t “destroy” a portfolio

IT CAN ruin a position, spread trade or stop limits BUT should not ruin a whole portfolio

Things that hurt you in one day – upgrades, downgrades, black swan events, The Fed, crazy news, gaps,

Crazy event if they are ruining a portfolio you are probably over leveraged in some regard


What’s happening this week and why?

Fear of another rate hike tomorrow

CNN Comey, Session or open hearings about possible classified or illegal government officials activities

Rotation and profit taking from Tech and/or FANG
