Short Term Top?

First about last week.  All my trades were profitable and are closed (see last blog post).  First off the signal is working beautifully, and enough traders believing the lie that the Fed is ever going to raise rates just made it easier.

This week, the signals have me in watch and wait mode, with a very interesting pattern in IBB that bears watching.

My automatic SVXY hourly trade signal is being beta'd right now, and the feedback has been favorable, with some great suggestions to improve performance.  We will test for sixty day to get enough data points, and to continue to reduce any latency in the signal, and any slippage due to time to delivery. Both are solvable and are being engineered into the program.

My $50,000 to $1,000,000 trading only volatility challenge in five years is ahead of schedule.  I attached the graph for review, and will continue to post the trades live.

Enjoy the charts.

Ah Movement

OK, I two of the three directions right but made three winning trades.  Long Vix, short SPY, and when gold failed the breakout on Monday, I shorted and covered on Friday.  My new thoughts are in the charts below.  Enjoy.

Not Much Cooking.

I am just waiting on a pullback in the market, although Gold is looking decent.

$50K to a $million in 5 years on track.

On January 1st I made a commitment to trade only volatility long or short with no leverage using my one hour/4 hour signal.  So far this year I am already up 26% for the year. All my trades are posted real time on my #bobloveshawaii Twitter site.  It's free to follow.  Just so you know,  I traded Vol successfully for years, now concentrating on it as it is very profitable.

I am working on two more signals to share after I trade them through a cycle and the back testing pans out.  They will be for gold and for SPY reversal system.  Stay tuned.

Right now I am in all cash, as the four hour maxed out and the hourly topped and rolled over.  My view is another short vol set up is coming before we can buy vol long again.

Here are my charts and results.  Enjoy.

A Really Nice Project

It is not often you can invest in a property that borders a city that has halted all new construction, and we also get to collateralize not just the land but additional lots.  This project has already started selling phase one, has 30 some remaining lots/homes to sell, selling approx 3 a month, and is now ready to prepare the dirt on phase two.  The cool thing is as they sell those lots/homes in phase one, they buy down our loan at a 1.1 to 1 ratio.  Very good collateral coverage at 69% loan to cost, and high 50's loan to value.  Short term, max is one year.  They will then finance the next phase of construction and pay off the remainder of this loan.

Ping me at bkudla@ignitefunding.com for more info and risk disclosures.  We will fund this loan by the 30th.
