  Hi everybody, I am in the process of transferring funds over to another trading platform. Using my current methodology, I am doing quite a bit of active trading. To lower my commission cost, I am going to a platform where the broker only charges a flat $3.95 per trade. I will keep my current broker for certain transactions such as the free commission trades on a multiple of ETF's and Funds. So for awhile, my portfolio will see a $8.95 cost per transaction and eventually  a $3.95 cost per transaction when I switch over. I also want to 'test' out the new broker platform to see how well it works so again some trans will show $8.95 and others will show eventually  $3.95. However, the new broker allows new clients like myself 100 free commission I will take advantage of this. So shortly, on my portfolio it will be zero cost on some of the trades and 8.95 on others and eventually, hopefully 3.95 per trans ongoing. 
 Gosh I feel naked without owning TSLA or NFLX ?
 I need to buy at least one of them ................
 In a attempt to draw attention to itself, it has become a hard laugh and lost creditability.....ABG Sundal Collier's  downgrade call on Apple.. Probably will go down as one of the worst timing calls of all time... but again what do you expect of a bank... banks have no clue on the market.. just check the billions lost by JPM.  Apple is ready for a product announcement next week and then an announcement in China which fuels speculation an agreement to sell phones via the  'China Gorilla', China Mobile... In any case, don't expect AAPL's share price to drop anytime soon. 
 8:19am  Carl Icahn...what he does....  causes company stock prices to change by forcing company management to make changes in  company direction.
8:26am two stocks mentioned yesterday, BLOX and JAZZ are kickin azz....
8:51am  Started position in BLOX... 100 shrs
Ready to jump into FB
8:57am  Peckerwooded our way into 20 shrs of NFLX... Feel much better now.
8:59am  I getting out of TSLA looks good at the moment but 'Price' of TSLA starting to look attractive again....
9:00am  Just can't pull the trigger on FB... still thinking !
9:40am   Up'd my position on DDD by 50 shrs
11:12am  BLOX not doing nothing.. sold for small loss, bought RPRX to replace it.
10:28am  Sold TXTR for nice profit. After purchase, realize this stock, an IPO,  trades in lower daily volume than in my comfort zone. In return, bought JAZZ, one of current  top performers with higher volume numbers. Note: JAZZ was brought to my attention from a person with the handle of Jaih at my old site - People & Places.
10:38am  Getting geared up with new broker, flat rate commissions of 3.95 plus 100 free trades. Will use both for awhile, so some trades will show 8.95 per and others for the first 100 will show zero commission then 3.95 per.
10:41 TSLA remains in downtrend... still watching for a point to buy....
11:25am  gonna watch for awhile.. I know I know, u don't believe me
12:48pm   Sold MPWR... looking for better action
12:53pm  Got 25 shrs TSLA.. wasn't paying enough attention and missed the bottom but that's OK. I'm in.
12:57pm  DATA and DDD kickin azz! AAPL doing well. Hell, they're all rockin!
: Annualized rate of return calculation. 
It is shown on the first and  last page of the portfolio spreadsheet. It is based on an average portfolio cost basis  of $80,000. More times than not I am below that amount.  My rules as stated at the beginning of our blog site is that I will not have more than $100,000 at risk at any given time and no more than 12 equities in the portfolio.
 My annualized return is based on a 365 year, the formula is provided by Google Drive spreadsheet software.
The rate will be calculated each day after market closing. I might add a second rate of return based on an average equity cost of $85,000 or $90,000 if I start putting more money in at risk. Right now , $80,000 is an average on the high side.

Price... follow the Price.. Money does and money flows to where money grows. I don't care about moving averages of any kind or flavor. I have no clue what oversold or overbought means nor do I care. Even volume numbers can be deceptive. I look at Price. Price is the result of the entire spectrum thoughts of those who are buying and selling stocks. Price is true. Price is honest. Price at any given time  provides the result of anyone's and everyone's  analysis, comments, posts, blogs, manipulations, media news, etc etc etc.

I don't have the time or inclination to purchase an entity and see if it's a winner in 5 years. My preference is to find out in 5 minutes. I love to purchase a stock that hits a first time new high, whether  the new high is a 52wk high, a yearly high, an all-time high ..because... the odds are that it's more than likely to continue to hit even more highs. The 'first new high' is likely to be the lowest high.
Are you watching the right stocks ?

Painter/Painting   of the Day

Paintings that you would want to walk into!

This is the awe-inspiring work of Russian artist Evgeny Lushpin – capturing the lure of  city and landscape paintings. His work kind of romanticize the notion of human dwellings such as cities, streets and alleys in a very visually rich and ideally realistic manner that tickles fantasy

Eugene Lushpin, born in Moscow in November of 1966, is a celebrated contemporary artist whose work graces private collections throughout the United States, Russia and abroad. Greatly influenced by the Russian Realism School, his inspiring paintings of still life and landscape reflect a complex rendering of texture, illusionistic light and an intricate attention to detail.
In his first creative stage, the artist followed the traditional technique of the Russian Realism School, elaborately painting his surfaces with the finest glazes. Possessing a strong interest in the effect of illusions, his early work reflects a strong sense of symbolism. Skillfully mastering the complex technique of texture painting with glimmering, lustrous or reflective surfaces, Lushpin created a series of photorealistic landscapes. At first glance, they are often mistaken for large color photographs.
Recently, the artist’s interests have become more focused on the image of the city. He has a unique gift for capturing the dynamic energy of a crowded sidewalk or the serene mood of a quiet neighborhood. Rooftops are often a prominent subject in much of his work, representing the theme of fairy tales from the artist’s childhood – man rising above everyday problems and the bustle of the world. His brilliant use of color and sharp contrast combined with loose Impressionistic brushstrokes bring a dynamic quality to his impressive artwork.
