Day 3 of Fed Week…The day rates are raised???

2:10 Update

Tuesday we had 3 plays and all were in the NHL. Our plays went 2-1 for a +1.67 Unit day. The NHL this season has been coming along nicely. This is primarily as a result of having a subscriber base now that allows me to perform more detailed analysis with more sophisticated data. This of course is something I have been wanting to do but was not able to justify it when handicapping was merely a hobby as opposed to full time as it is now.

Subscribers I will be sending out plays 1 to 10 min before game time tonight. If you want to come on board one of the best handicapping services around for a very reasonable price just hit the paypal button and subscribe. I will set you up and you can have all the plays sent directly to your cell phone or where ever you would like.

Good Luck Today

Well its finally here. The day everyone has been waiting for. The first fed increases in years and years. I am sure Greenspan and Bernanke are shaking their heads as both of these fine gentlemen would not even consider raising rates in this environment. To the contrary Helicopter Ben would be printing money at an unbelievable rate making sure that the events that are a drag on the world and the U.S. would not push us into a depression.

But those two will have to sit in the wings and watch the carnage unfold. As their hands are tied. One can only speculate why the fed is raising rates at this time. Even from a political standpoint its not a good idea especially if they want to insure a good economy for Hillary. So its mystifying to me with the exception of it might be driven by Ideology. Attempting to correct in some small way disparate of income and assets between the masses. Of course my paranoia kicks in from time to time and its tough to keep it in control this morning:)

We have had a nice bounce coming into today. Now the question will be are they going to sell the news? Typically that is a setup you usually can count on. But this run up has been pretty strong which leads me to believe the rally into year end I have been talking about is here finally. I am sure many 4 days ago were getting very nervous. If you panicked and sold at the lows my condolences. That is a habit if you do not break will prevent you from making money in the markets!

I am long a portfolio of stocks along with swing trades and mean reversion trades. So I am benefiting from this swing. Now of course I need to manage my positions .

Finally Its always great to get positive feedback for the hard work I put into this site:

“Also want to thank you for such a valuable and fun service you provide. I truly value the stock service. The sports is just a fun pastime. I probably miss about 1/3 of the sports plays because I’m not going to stop driving, eating with friends, exercising, etc to get them in quickly. Which is no problem.

Also would like to hear a general comment sometime about what you do with your retirement money. Bonds, dividend paying stocks, annuities, whatever. I have allocated 100K to trading and having fun and making money. What a deal. ”

I always like to get these types of emails. Usually after a 10 unit downswing in sports I get very negative remarks so remarks on the up side is very appreciated. As far as the question raised about where I allocate my money…I will leave that for another day.
