A software developer view on the markets

The Weekly Update

Posted by The Average Investor on Jan 9, 2011

The first week in January was good for the markets. The US stocks itched a little higher, while the emerging markets and the real estate stayed flat.

Asset Symbol Position Date In Gain
Nasdaq 100 ^NDX Long 2010-09-03 21.73%
Emerging Markets EEM Long 2010-07-23 14.82%
US REIT VNQ Long 2010-07-23 10.17%
S&P 500 ^GSPC Long 2010-09-30 11.04%

The short-term long position in Gold which I discussed earlier is still intact. It is based on a different system (contrarian and short-term), with much higher frequency of trading than the long-term trend-following moving averages.
