Re: 2017 Trading Thread

RAD had a nice bounce today, bought some more. Fully locked and loaded with my position now. I think it's fairly likely that within a month or so some activist hedge fund is going to announce a huge position in RAD and start demanding board seats, which could provide a nice catalyst to the upside.

Either way, if you factor in the sum of the parts valuation + potential operational improvements, it's a good buy at these prices IMO.

I've held for 3 happy days haha. Same goes for AAOI
How long do you normally hang onto trades? do you set sell points or have a general time period or what?

They are also working in tech that isn't really in any danger of being obsolete. Maybe this isn't enough but that's why we ask questions isn't it?

Because actual volatility is so low. Relatively the VIX is probably expensive. If you think its too low buy options.

I was going to ask something similar, asking why volatility is so low.

My main guess is due to the everlasting low interest-rates set by the FED since the financial crisis. Yes, rates have been raised by tiny fractions, and may go up another tiny fraction later in the year, but it's still miniscule relative to historical levels. Yield-seeking investors have no other choice but to park their money in stocks, so the bubble just keeps on ballooning.

Another factor would be due to HFT. Robots trading all day, gobbling up any tiny edge in the market as well as serving as market makers where they start buying any small dips to avoid mass sell-offs that would spark a recession.

But these are just guesses, would be curious to hear from more experienced traders.
