You Have the Ability to overcome Obstacles on the Way to Success – Panda Express Fortune Cookie


Can U pls share any insights U have re: FB as a collar trade ? Where do U go find how it behaves before, during and after earnings ?


I am looking to move money from AAPL over into facebook.  Right now I have, spread amongst accounts, 3800 shares.  I’m looking to pick up more shares of Facebook.  I do my Fundamental analysis and look for earnings as entry points because of the big movements. 



What’s happening this week and why?

2nd week of retail sales earnings

This week I think we are getting last week’s sell-off bounce back

Empire -10.7 vs est -6.0

CPI 0.2 vs est 0.2

Core CPI 0.2 vs est 0.2

Industrial Production -0.2 vs est 0.1

Capacity Utilization 77.5 vs est 77.5

NAHB Housing Index 62.0 vs est 64.5



Where will our market end this week?

FOMC Minutes dictate where our market finishes the week



DJIA – We are in no-man’s land without direction. Couldn’t get above the 200 SMA
