Last Trading Day of the Year
With the last day of the year upon us, it will be interesting to see if there is any noticeable window dressing in the market. AAPL is up nicely after filing its 10Q, and I wouldn't mind seeing that as a candidate.
The Nasdaq and NYSE announced they will remained closed on Tuesday, in honor of President Ford's funeral. That will make for a nice four day weekend. Four days, can you believe it?
I would recommend taking some time during the long weekend to review your trades from 2006, make notes on what went wrong and what went write, and come up with some trading resolutions for the New Year.
Overall, the markets put in a solid year, and I think we will see a repeat next year. I take an annual poll of portfolio manager's forecasts each year, and I will post my update to the winner over the weekend.
