JBLU- Jetblue- for those comfortable in airline industy

JBLU- Jetblue- the stock is near historical bottom. Last week, lufthansa agreed to buy stack in JBLU and the stock soared. Now it is retracing back to 6.40 level. In my opinion, it is likely that 6 dollar level will not be broken.
Airline industry is suffering due to high oil prices for the last 3/4 years but in my opinion airline industry fundamentals have changed dramatically after major bankruptcies and 9/11. The planes are more full and airliners have some pricing power back. Oil is a big problem.
However airline stocks make a nice turn around play in my opinion.
I would love to hear your opinions.

Merry Christmas and have great holidays

FMD "First marblehead" A good stock to enter

FMD has a strong trend reversal signal on excellent high volume. However the stock has jumped too much in a day so I would wait for it to drop to enter around 16. Keep a proper stoploss.

USD American Dollar, American Economy

(Disclaimer: I didn't write this. A friend emailed me this. Whoever wrote it has written it nicely so can not resist temptation to share with a wider audience.
This is not a stock tip but gives you some points to consider when you do your asset allocation.
Sorry I can not give due credit to the original writer by mentioning his email because I do not know who he or she is)

The euro, worth 83 cents in the early George W. Bush
years, is at $1.45.

The British pound is back up over $2, the highest
level since the Carter era. The Canadian dollar, which used to be worth 65
cents, is worth more than the U.S. dollar for the first time in half a century.

Oil is over $90 a barrel. Gold, down to $260 an ounce not so long ago, has
hit $800.

Have gold, silver, oil, the euro, the pound and the Canadian
dollar all suddenly soared in value in just a few years?

Nope. The
dollar has plummeted in value, more so in Bush's term than during any comparable
period of U.S. history. Indeed, Bush is presiding over a worldwide abandonment
of the American dollar.

Is it all Bush's fault? Nope.

The dollar
is plunging because America has been living beyond her means, borrowing $2
billion a day from foreign nations to maintain her standard of living and to
sustain the American Imperium.

The prime suspect in the death of the
dollar is the massive trade deficits America has run up, some $5 trillion in
total since the passage of NAFTA and the
creation of the World Trade Organization in 1994.

In 2006, that U.S.
trade deficit hit $764 billion. The current account deficit, which includes the
trade deficit, plus the net outflow of interest, dividends, capital gains and
foreign aid, hit $857 billion, 6.5 percent of GDP. As some of us have been
writing for years, such deficits are unsustainable and must lead to a decline of
the dollar.

A sinking dollar means a poorer nation, and a sinking
currency has historically been the mark of a sinking country. And a superpower
with a sinking currency is a contradiction in terms.

What does this mean
for America and Americans?

As nations realize that the dollars they are
being paid for their products cannot buy in the world markets what they once
did, they will demand more dollars for those goods. This will mean rising prices
for the imports on which America has become more dependent than we have been
since before the Civil War.

U.S. tourists traveling to the countries
whence their ancestors came will find that the money they saved up does not go
as far as they thought.

U.S. soldiers stationed overseas will find the
cost of rent, gasoline, food, clothing and dining out takes larger and larger
bites out of their paychecks. The people those U.S. soldiers defend will be
demanding more and more of their money.

U.S. diplomats stationed
overseas, students and businessmen are already facing tougher times.

U.S. foreign aid does not go as far as it did. And there is an element
of comedy in seeing the United States going to Beijing to borrow
dollars, thus putting our children deeper in debt, to send still more foreign
aid to African despots who routinely vote the Chinese line at the United Nations.

The Chinese, whose currency is tied to the dollar, and Japan will
continue, as long as they can, to keep their currencies low against the dollar.
For the Asians think long term, and their goals are strategic.

China - growing
at 10 percent a year for two decades and now growing at close to 12 percent - is
willing to take losses in the value of the dollars it holds to keep the U.S.
technology, factories and jobs pouring in, as their exports capture America's
markets from U.S. producers.

The Japanese will take some loss in the
value of their dollar hoard to take down Chrysler, Ford
and GM, and capture the U.S. auto market as they captured our TV, camera and
computer chip markets.

Asians understand that what is important is not
who consumes the apples, but who owns the orchard.

Other nations that
have kept cash reserves in U.S. Treasury bonds and T-bills are watching the
value of these assets sink. Not fools, they will begin, as many already have, to
divest and diversify, taking in fewer dollars and more euros and yen. As more
nations abandon the dollar, its decline will continue.

The oil-producing
and exporting nations, with trade surpluses, like China, have also begun to take
the stash of dollars they have and stuff them into sovereign wealth funds, and
use these immense and growing funds to buy up real assets in the United States -
investment banks and American companies.

Nor is there any end in sight
to the sinking of the dollar. For, as foreigners demand more dollars for the oil
and goods they sell us, the trade deficit will not fall. And as the U.S.
government prints more and more dollars to cover the budget deficits that
stretch out - with the coming retirement of the baby boomers - all the way to
the horizon, the value of the dollar will fall. And as Ben Bernanke at
the Fed tries to keep interest rates low, to keep the U.S. economy from
sputtering out in the credit crunch, the value of the dollar will fall.

The chickens of free trade are coming home to roost.

Passport photos for less...

You can print pictures online for 4 inch x 6 inch print from 10 cents onwards. However when you need to have passport photos, you have to pay 10dollars for 2 passport pictures at CVS, Kinko's or at local 1hour studio! I hated when I had to pay that kind of money at costco and the picture they took wasn't great either. I hated my bad face on my passport.

Now there is a way for you to save money on passport photos. You can have 5 passport photos for 5 dollars mailed at your doorstep. Also you can choose your picture!
Take a look at online passport photo deals/

PLCE- Children's Place retail stores- Is it bottoming out?

PLCE- Children's Place retail stores- Is it bottoming out?

Don't know what news is out there but it must be bad which caused the price to drop. However this must be an expected news and as per Profit From Prices stock trading theory, looks like people have used this bad news to buy this stock.
It opened low but instead of going down from the Open price, it started going up. THis shows that there was more buying today than the selling that was anticipated.
Watch this stock for investment opportunities.
If someone decides to buy, stop loss should be kept at 20.49$.

LFC is a hot stock but today but over the last two trading sessions, it has shown a rare trading pattern- island reversal. There was a positive gap yesteray which took the price to the high of around 95 but today there was a surprising down gap.

PEIX- Pacific Ethanol- Do you think ethanol stocks are bottoming?

PEIX- Pacific Ethanol- Do you think ethanol stocks are bottoming?

Unusally high volume over the previous few days. PEIX stock also had a nice jump a few days ago and is now trading back to 9$.
IMO this makes a good trade for traders with a stoploss at the recent Low price.

Investors can also add this stock on their radar.
Keep an eye on PEIX- Pacific Ethanol stock as a potential reversal candidate around current 8-9 dollars stock price.

USBE US BIoenergy Corp- Is it bottoming out? Is it a good buy?

USBE US BIoenergy Corp- a bio energy stock- is USBE stock a good buy?
The volume is going up. Today a reverse signal is in the making.

This is a emerging industry with fortunes tied to commodities- corn prices and oil prices. Corn prices are very high and maybe this is the reason why USBE (and PEIX etc) are making new lows.

Put this stock on your watchlist. I am buying a few to keep it on my radar.

26th September- 2 best stocks to trade/buy- Nortel (NT) and Starbucks(SBUX)

2 best stocks to trade/buy- Nortel (NT) and Starbucks(SBUX).

Nortel Network (stock symbol NT) made a new low yesterday and it also had a REVERSE stock trading signal. Today it opened with a GAP and closed above today Open Price. This is a pretty good JUMP START SIGNAL. A very good trading opportunity to trade buy Nortel Network (stock symbol NT) with stopless at yesterday's low price. Look at the chart below:

Starbucks( stock symbol SBUX). This growing stock is in some reaction for quite some time. Currently a nice triangle pattern is emerging. Today's move can prove to be the starting point for the bullish trend in the stock for next few weeks or months. (Such triangle patterns usually can break out in any direction so for investors/traders who are seeking more safety, look out of the gap in opening price over the next few days. If there is up GAP, that is a confirmation for the uptrend. A down Opening Gap is a signal to stay away from buying. However makes good candidate to buy Starbucks SBUX CAll options with strike price of 27.50. Please note that current price right now is 27.60 or so. Call Options for October are trading at 70 cents. )

Keep a stoploss at today’s high price. On the chart, you will also see a PFP signal to sell few weeks ago which successfully showed prices sliding from around 96 to 80 level.Little higher volume would have added much to our confidence. Any way still a sell worth trying. Don’t forget the stoploss though.
