MESA-Sabrient Trading Alerts (RS2) is the collaboration of two bona fide rocket scientists (we call it rocket science squared). It combines a technical overlay with Sabrient’s fundamentally strong stocks. The technical overlay was developed by John Ehlers, a retired scientist from the defense industry — the watch list, by David Brown, a former NASA scientist who was part of the lunar landing team.
John saw the outstanding buy-and-hold performance of SabrientÂ’s fundamentally ranked equities (the source of the Watch List) and thought he could improve upon their buy-and-hold performance with his technical timing system . . . and he did!
In a 3-month backtest (September – December 2009) and a 5-month (January – May) forward test, John had an average return of $249.84 or 2.50% per position. Out of 89 trades, 67% were winners.

Heard it from a friend who, heard it from a friend who
Heard it from another you been messin’ around
They’re talkin’ about you and it’s bringin’ me down
But I know the neighborhood
And talk is cheap when the story is good
And the tales grow taller on down the line
But I’m telling you, babe, that I don’t think it’s true, babe
And even if it is keep this in mind
That was fast. We’re going to smile and take it on the run, for another 9% in 3 days on our HUSA short.
BUY TO COVER HUSA short at the market, Thursday, September 16, 2010.
And to quote the Terminator “I’ll be back.”

"Hello PSW Members –
This is a non-trading topic, but I wanted to post it during trading hours so as many eyes can see it as possible. Feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Last fall there was some discussion on the PSW board regarding setting up a YouCaring donation page for a PSW member, Shadowfax. Since then, we have been looking into ways to help get him additional medical services and to pay down his medical debts. After following those leads, we are ready to move ahead with the YouCaring site. (Link is posted below.) Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated; not only to help aid in his medical bill debt, but to also show what a great community this group is.
Thank you for you time!

Yesterday we showed how 'isolated' Russia was (if you chose to look only at isolating parts of the world). Today, we glimpse at the world's views on China vs US... As The Global Post notes, we know that only 35 percent of Americans have a favorable view of China. But what about the rest of the world?

For would-be stock market traders, the idea of making a living in in the stock market is intriguing. Imagine: rolling out of bed, grabbing your slippers, a cup of coffee, turning on your laptop, glancing at a couple charts, clicking on "buy," and raking in the money. Or don't even get out of bed!
What is often not completely understood, however, is that trading is not easy. The simple advice of "buy low, sell high" is difficult to follow. Further, moving into the world of options adds another level of complexity and is quite daunting.
So, if I just described you, and you want to enhance your understanding of options, take the time to learn the facts presented in Understanding Options, a new ebook by John F. Carter. John is the founder of SimplerOptions.com and author of the book &qu...

The S&P 500 opened fractionally higher and hit its 0.14% intraday high moments later. The 10 AM August Manufacturing Report came in stronger than expected, but an hour later, the index started a selloff that would send it to its -0.43% intraday low in the early afternoon. A modest rally trimmed the loss to -0.05% at the close.
The S&P 500 went nowhere today, but Treasuries stirred a bit. The yield on the 10-year Note closed at 2.42%, up 7 bps from Friday's close.
Here is a 15-minute chart of the past five sessions.

Buffalo Wild Wings Inc. (Ticker: BWLD) shares are in positive territory in early-afternoon trading on Thursday, reversing earlier losses to stand up 0.50% on the session at $148.50 as of 12:15 pm ET. Options volume on the restaurant chain is running approximately three times the daily average level due to heavy put activity in the October expiry contracts. It looks like one or more traders are buying the Oct 140/145 put spread at a net premium of roughly $1.45 per contract. As of the time of this writing, the spread has traded approximately 3,000 times against very little open interest at either striking price. The put spread may be a hedge to protect a long stock position against a roughly 6% pullback in the price of the underlying through October expiration, or an outright bearish play anticipating a dip in BWLD shares in the next couple of months. The spread makes money at expiration if shares in BWLD decline 3.3% from the current price of $148.50 to breach the breakeven point...

Mt Gox may be long gone in the annals of bankruptcy, but its founder refuses to go gentle into that insolvent night. And, as CoinDesk reports, the disgraced former CEO of the one-time premier bitcoin trading platform has decided to give it a second try by launching new web hosting service called Forever.net and is registered under both Karpeles’ name and that of Tibanne, the parent company of Mt Gox.

Well PSW Subscribers....I am still here, barely. From my last post a few months ago to now, nothing has changed much, but there are a few bargins out there that as investors, should be put on the watch list (again) and if so desired....buy a small amount.
First, the media is on a tear against biotechs/pharma, ripping companies for their drug prices. Gilead's HepC drug, Sovaldi, is priced at $84K for the 12-week treatment. Pundits were screaming bloody murder that it was a total rip off, but when one investigates the other drugs out there, and the consequences of not taking Sovaldi vs. another drug combinations, then things become clearer. For instance, Olysio (JNJ) is about $66,000 for a 12-week treatment, but is approved for fewer types of patients AND...
