Aurora Cannabis order for 1 million shares filled at open Dec 29 at $9.25 per share

Update: 1 Million shares of ACB Aurora Cannabis Inc filled at open Dec 29 at $9.25 per share.

IMHO this stock should Gap up when the markets open after New Years. Nice moves on a Friday before a Holiday, often are pre-cursors to nice moves when the markets reopen.

When the Sunspot Cycle peaks, so could the stock market based on the Dow30 index

This is one way to possibly forecast how the US Stock Market (Dow 30 Index) could be doing. Check a Historical DOW30 Index chart to see when the Peaks occurred. Then check the Sunspot Cycle chart below.

Sunspots run in cycles and In My Opinion so does the US Stock Market (your mileage may of course differ).

Updates on my trading CSCO and FEYE have been posted in our prior post

Sorry. I will do better next time with having separate posts for Updates.

Updates to my trading CSCO and FEYE have been posted at the bottom of the prior post. Just click on this line to get you to that prior post.

An interesting lesson occurred.The FEYE stock price reversed and hit my Sell Stop last Friday. Today (Mon Apr 20) FEYE reversed and rose back up again, rather nicely.  It closed on Apr 20 2015 at $42.43.

I have found that sticking to one’s Sell Stop allows one to stay in the game. Yes, I suffered a small loss by selling. Next time a Sell Stop may save me from a huge loss. You cannot win at this game without having losing trades.

Okay, where the heck did I put that bottle of Bourbon…

FEYE and CSCO trades, new Sell Stops

The new Sell Stop for FEYE will be the Low which occurred on Apr 14. FEYE Sell Stop is now $40.81. If the prices falls to or below $40.81 the Sell Stop becomes a Market Order and the 1,000 shares of FEYE would be sold off. Sell Stops can protect you against a big loss. So far the FEYE trade has not done well. We’re still in the game until the Sell Stop gets hit.

The new Sell Stop for CSCO will again be the Low which occurred on Apr 14.

CSCO Sell Stop is now $27.68. If the prices falls to or below $27.68 the Sell Stop becomes a Market Order and the 1,000 shares of CSCO would be sold off. Sell Stops can protect you against a big loss.

So far the CSCO trade looks good. It has hit a Resistance Level, but the trading volume has held steady. If it can fill the Gap which was created on Fen 12 2015,  by hitting the price of $28.84 or higher, that will bode well for a further rise. The Feb 12 Low of $28.84 looks to be the next Resistance Level for CSCO.

UPDATE Apr 17 8PM :

FEYE Sell Stop got hit today. Sold 1000 shares at $40.81. First loss, of many to come…

UPDATE Apr 20 11:30PM:

Guess what FEYE closed today at $42.43. I may get back in, but usually do not play the same stock for fear of trying to get even. I’m not upset since I strictly followed selling once the Sell Stop got hit. In the long term doing so will pay off, as it has in the past.

On Apr 13 2015 Cisco CSCO opened at $27.99 per share.

Purchased CSCO 1,000 shares = $27,990.00 + $25 Brokerage Fee.

Purchased FEYE 1,000 shares = $42,690.00 + $25 Brokerage Fee.

CSCO and FEYE breaking out? Setting up an imaginary portfolio to trade

Cisco and FireEye, both trading on Nasdaq, are looking interesting. Maybe breaking out.

For our new imaginary portfolio I will buy 1,000 shares each of CSCO and FEYE on Nasdaq at open on Monday Apr 13. I will use the official “Open” price.

Investing and Trading is something that I’m considering getting back into.

The number 13 is supposedly “unlucky”, so we’ll see how these trades will work out. They both will be swing trades.

I’ll try and post charts tomorrow night. It’s half past midnight (AM) right now on Apr 13 2015
