Live: Tuesday, Dec. 26, 2017

12/16 – 3:20 p.m. New York tme

I neither entered nor exited positions today. No outcomes, as is common during the week between Christas and the start of the New Year.

12/24 – 10 a.m. New York time

U.S. markets are closed on Monday for the Christmas holiday.

I have no prospective trades for action on Tuesday, and indeed, throughout the week.

I normally require that a potential trade be followed by at least three analysts. I lowered it to two, with the same results: No prospects.

So it will be an uncharacteristically  relaxing week for Private Trader, and indeed for all who join us in trading the U.S. markets. Enjoy!

Tim Bovee, Private Trader tracks the analysis and trades of a private trader for his own accounts. Nothing in this blog constitutes a recommendation to buy or sell stocks, options or any other financial instrument. The only purpose of this blog is to provide education and entertainment.

No trader is ever 100 percent successful in his or her trades. Trading in the stock and option markets is risky and uncertain. Each trader must make trading decisions for his or her own account, and take responsibility for the consequences.
