Sometimes somebody, somebody else, just gets it so right you have to sit up and say, "That's it, that's dead on, that's what I am going to do." Usually for me it is
, my able and trusted partner.
Sometimes it is
, who has guided me through incredibly difficult times always with an eye toward making the biggest gains with the least risk. (Wien is a strategist at
Morgan Stanley Dean Witter
.) Sometimes it is my wife, the
, who worked with me for seven years running my trading desk.
This time it is
piece about the oversold
and the carnage in the B2Bs on these pages is the best piece out there right now that tells me what to do. After I finished reading it I looked at my trading sheets and I said "I don't own enough Nasdaq. I gotta get longer Nasdaq. I hope I have a chance. Maybe I am going to miss a big rally off the oversold."
I am sending this piece to all my compadres at the office for them to study this weekend. I am going to do my own charting of the
Red Hots (now retitled
TheStreet.com New Tech 30
) to make sense of it. And then I am going to have to do some buying for a vicious rally off the lows that might be coming -- if my braintrust agrees with me.
A word on that by the way. We work as a team at
. (That is the name of the firm, not Cramer Co.) It is entirely possible that Jeff or
Matt "I Still Believe" Jacobs
, our head trader, disagrees with me. I usually try to give you a distillation of all of our views.
But as I have just read this piece this Saturday morning, I don't have all of the inputs I need -- however Helene has made me "feel" more bullish than I did before.
Now that's an important piece!
