After the earthquake


After the nuclear plant explosions, as a sharp expected reaction, prices of Uranium have dropped drastically - looks like Uranium is becoming too hot to handle commodity. That can mean so many things - for many "politically correct" govts, it could mean putting new plant construction to back burner. Putting pressure on companies and supply chain of nuclear industry and possibly forcing some "on the fence" guys to break rank and deal with "rogue" govts like Iran who can get the fuel and technology on the cheap.
Meanwhile the energy needs dont seem to be going down anytime soon and thereby more "clean coal" and "gas" based power until the global warming/climate change issue heats up some other debate.
Stocks markets world over have gone into risk off mode and many expectation of interest rate rise in Europe and UK have been pushed back. Commodities have corrected sharply down.This could be the event which can induce the trend change.

Home Works (February 2011)

General Markets

This new year stared with a busy travel schedule for me preventing me from doing any serious trading. I hardly traded during January 2011 and it looks as if February is not going to be much different. Whatever little I traded provided below average and below median returns and another positive return making it 20th green month in a row for the homework book. Current median return on assumed 2 contract lot basis is $2,033 and current mean return on assumed 2 contract lot basis is $4,019. Click here for HW Trades result on 2 contract lot basis so far.***

I have added a page for FAQ on the blog page as well as a page for HW book trades. Please comment if there are any questions you might have. Also provide suggestions for any other improvements to the blog. Or we can interact via my Facebook page.

Home Works (January 2011)

General Markets

Happy new year. Time to take account of the year and plan for the next one. I did not trade most of second half of December 2010 due to my holidays. Whatever little I traded provided below average and below median returns and another positive return making it 19th green month in a row for the homework book. Current median return on assumed 2 contract lot basis is $2,525 and current mean return on assumed 2 contract lot basis is $4,205. The home work results page is consolidated to carry forward 2010 trades so that 2011 trades can be recorded. If anyone is looking for details of the old trades in 2010 and 2009, please let me know via comments. Click here for HW Trades result on 2 contract lot basis so far.***
