The Weekly Update

Posted by The Average Investor on Nov 23, 2010

Some of our positions barely survived this volatile week. On Wednesday VNQ reached lows that if held would have triggered a sell at the end of the week (a previous post shows how to pre-compute the exit points). In fact, if stop losses would have been used, two of the positions (EEM and VNQ) would have been closed.

The tide turned however for the rest of the week and all positions were intact at the end.

Asset Symbol Position Date In Gain
Nasdaq 100 ^NDX Long 2010-09-03 14.17%
Emerging Markets EEM Long 2010-07-23 13.03%
US REIT VNQ Long 2010-07-23 6.49%
S&P 500 ^GSPC Long 2010-09-30 5.13%
