Hello Everybody

To learn more about my Fat Pitch ETF Advisory, please click here.

Trade Actions:

None this week. We are holding 6 positions in a 10 position account. I am trying to find a way to move into a balanced portfolio.

Market Outlook/Potential Opportunities:

The stock market is trying to extend it's gains, but is struggling. It should go on for another couple of weeks and then roll over down one more time. I am still looking to add a couple of Short ETF's. The inflation hedges are still under pressure. Gold, Nuclear and Biofuel are long term holds. Still we need to put in some stops in case this change in direction gets worse.

Current Long Portfolio:

Long CGW Global Water @ 25.55

It closed at 23.43

Stop at 22

Long GLD ( Street TRACKS Gold ) at 90

It closed at 81.71

Stop at 73

Long NLR Nuclear Energy @ 32.59

It closed at 29.12

Stop at 25

Long FUE Elements BioFuel @ 10.0

It closed at 9.93
