Stocks Go Higher so does the SSO

Don't fight it, just go with it.

Think you're an expert stock picker? How many of your stocks went positive last year, how much did you actually gain in your portfolio? Why risk individual stocks when you can buy the S&P 500 Index and get a dividend to boot. The answer is the SSO.


It's been a painful few days, what can you turn to?

China is killing U.S. equities. The S&P500 is down more than 10% since last week. Taking it down with it are three of our favorite stock picks for 2015. They too have been knocked down at least 10% or more. We recommend taking a look at Walt Disney (DIS), iShares NASDAQ Biotechnology Index (ETF) (IBB) and the ProShares Ultra S&P500 (ETF) (SSO).

Time to cash out?

The S&P 500 finally crossed and stayed above the 2,000 mark to close the week.  It's inevitable that various financial publications are out with the classic headline "time to sell", blah, blah, blah.  So what to do?

Dow Jones almost Flat thanks to Argentina

Argentina Girl Flag

Thanks to Argentina's demise its a welcome decline.

Big drop today in the major indexes as news of Argentina's default casues panic and selling.  This could be a great opportunity to enter the market via the SSO or DIA once the dust settles.

Stocks Bounce up goes the SSO

Stocks advanced today and so did the SSO.

ProShares Ultra S&P500 (ETF)(NYSE:SSO) increased 2% today while the S&P 500 inched up 1%.

The SSO Beats them All

Forget indivdual stocks, go with the gusto.

All praise the SSO.  That would be the ProShares Ultra S&P500 (SSO) which gained 4.14% today or $3.54 to close at $85.54.  Why buy individual equities when you can just buy the S&P 500 and be rewarded for the double the movement.

Embrace the Pullback: Buy the SSO

Robocopy - I'd buy that for a Dollar

Stocks will bounce back, buy the SSO.

Since Monday the ProShares Ultra S&P500 (SSO) has dropped 3.7%.  The pullback in U.S.


Stocks fell, we warned you. Now it's time for review.

We told you to sell before the big Powers-that-be met for 2 days and dissapointed the market (recall Waiting to Trade). Now that stocks have tanked, let's get into it.  We want you to consider Suntech Power Holdings Co ADS (STP), Direxion Daily Gold Miners Bull 3X Shrs (NUGT), ProShares Ultra S&P500 (SSO), ProShares Ultra Financials (UYG), and the iShares Dow Jones US Home Construction (ITB).

What to buy so you may reap the rewards from those that sold Thursday.

Thanks to today's decline we recommend going long on the S&P 500, U.S. Financials, and U.S. Homebuilders.  That means buying up ProShares Ultra S&P500 (SSO), ProShares Ultra Financials (UYG), and the iShares Dow Jones US Home Construction (ITB).


Volatility - Large Pic

Mastery welcomes the decline and gets friendly with volatility.

We saw this pullback coming since last week and used that opportunity to exit stage right to 100% cash. The winner today is the iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures (VXX) up 8% everything else sucks.
