Notes and trades as of January 9, 2013 $$STUDY

Lots of ideas in action and to look at, avoiding all the marquee names due to volatility and the sense that rotation and institutional exits can cause havoc.

Current trades in place, but really, it’s less about ideas, and more about trade and risk management:

Right now, we have energy, the Internet, Chinese market rebound and Financials front and center:

Energy (as expressed in BCEI and OAS above) can include Noble Energy (NBL)

“CLOUD” plays are promising, and have included Amazon (AMZN) but Equinix (EQIX) is another candidate:

China, in the form of the Shanghai Composite, looks promising. “Bond King” Gundlach at DoubleLine mentions this play, and what has fallen into disrepute could be promising. I don’t like using iShares FTSE China 25 ETF (FXI), but looking at it and the Steel Vectors ETF (SLX) is a starting point for me.

Another hated area is Europe, and many commentators on stocktwits are noticing Spain, so I present the Spain ETF (EWP) and Santander (SAN):
