This was largely due to the near collapse of Biotech, down almost 17% from the highs of only 5 weeks ago. Add to that the big NASDAQ momentum plays like NFLX (-21%), GOOG (-9%) and TSLA (-23%) in the last month and we have market performance that is decidedly lopsided. If the Transports break the close of 7181 from early February, things can get ugly very fast. As stated above, they don't ring a bell at the top or the bottom. Most professional traders will tell you that the stock market is actually the smallest market we observe. FOREX (currencies) is the biggest, bonds are second, and stocks are third. I'll discard FOREX because it is dominated by the pros, but bonds are in almost all accounts. They tend to represent safety and liquidity worldwide. When stocks and bonds are at odds, it is usually the bond market that is "right." Last week we had a position of long the TLT. This is the ETF for bond YIELDS....Bonds up, yields down. If the economy was getting better the path of rates would be higher, not lower....If things are actually better, then the lower rates have nothing to do with the economy, but rather the flight to safety and liquidity based on World political troubles. By the way, we had to sell the first half of that TLT trade due to our 100% up rule, which demands we sell half if a trade doubles ...CAM

Our losses for the new year were reduced to $ 3,836. For the full year 2013 we had realized gains of $ 53,556. We have open position losses of about $ 10,040 most of which are held over from last year. We also have not counted dividends received on stocks like Apple, Nordic American ( NAT ) and JP Morgan. We have two long options positions: The Stock table has the following 18 positions: The options call for a $ 2,500 investment unless otherwise stated; each stock position requires $5,000 unless specifically stated. We are basing money management on a hypothetical $ 100,000 and are using $ 2,158 in two options positions and $ 68,193 in 17 stock positions totaling $ 70,351 with $ 29,649 in cash. These figures are approximate. We do not count commission costs and there may be errors. Executions that have occurred at or near the open or close of trading sometimes vary from our actual numbers. For example, when something opens down and it is through our price, we take the next trade whether it is an uptick or continues lower. This sometimes results in a 50% trade that is slightly above or below the exact number.

  10. 10. Princeton Research Market Strategies Newsletter P a g e 10 Market Strategies Economic Data The employment picture is improving dramatically in the Northeast as both Pennsylvania and New York had fewer layoffs in construction, administration and services industries. PA lead with a decrease of 3,166 followed by New York with a decrease of 2,155. Illinois had 2,320 fewer layoffs. New Jersey had 1,008 fewer layoffs as the entire employment picture improves. Wisconsin improved by 1,055, Texas 1,373, Washington 1,026. California was the worst state with an increase of 3,189 jobless with layoffs in retail trade and services businesses. Challenger Gray and Christmas publishes a report every Thursday morning early preceding the major monthly employment report. Mr John A Challenger is the chief executive officer of the company which helps transition reemployment for displaced workers. Market Strategies Trading Fundamentals The unemployment report for this week is expected to be excellent, which is working its way into the markets. With plenty of cash in the system, it is time to put it to work. Good news is much overdue. So far this year the Transportation average is up just 50.79 points, but up enough to lead all major averages. The S&P 500 is up 11.42 points on the year, while both the Dow and Russell are lower. The Dow is off 253 points and the Russell 11.83 points. Looking at the Spring Thaw table below, we are way below the averages of the past several years. This table shows the propensity for the markets to rally along with a Spring thaw.

  12. 12. Princeton Research Market Strategies Newsletter P a g e 12 The game changed in 2008 when the US economy was introduced to quantitative easing. This venture into uncharted territory has become one of the largest financial experiments in modern time, and only history will be able to judge the value of this policy. Up until the point that QE was introduced, there were never any excess reserves in the system, yet if you notice, the monetary base kept slowly increasing. Why is that? During this period, as the population and the economy continued to grow, the quantity of money needed to support the growth in goods and services also had to grow. In principle, QE operates in similar fashion to normal open-market operations which have been with us for nearly a century. The major difference is the size of the bond purchases, and the types of bonds Market Strategies Technical Information Support Levels S&P 500 1818 Resistance S&P 500 1867 Support Levels DOW 16,080 Resistance DOW 16,440 Support Levels QQQ 86.16 Resistance QQQ 89.40 Support Levels NASDAQ 4094 Resistance NASDAQ 4297 Market Strategies Cycles The Cloud is already a major component of Microsoft server products and tools with Azure playing an important role in the growth of Microsoft's enterprise suite of products. This is a growth area in Microsoft adding $1 billion in revenue in each of 2012 and 2013. By 2015 it should be $20 billion business with margins of $18 to $19 billion. The cloud will go well with Office. For those retail investors who have heard of the Cloud, most are aware in a very limited way but do see the value in applications like Dropbox, SkyDrive, iCloud, Google Drive or Amazon Cloud Drive which many now use having typically been introduced with the latest smartphone or tablet or on every Windows 8 desktop. Satya Nadella, the newly elected president ran Microsoft's Cloud and Enterprise Group of businesses which included 12 businesses with revenues over $1 billion that play a key role in the information technology used by thousands of businesses. Cisco Systems forecasts that data storage on those Cloud services will grow at a staggering 63% annually through 2017. MSFT ( $ 37.62 ) has great support at $ 36.85 and should easily take out $ 38 on a rally sometime before mid-March.
