Buddha Morning




Live Blogging: Wednesday, August 2, 2017




I thought about live blogging again this morning, but only for one hour. I must confess that this ‘live blogging’ business is kind of time consuming, yet also fun. But one hour is good enough to keep things going.

Also, I’m thinking about live blogging in general, and not just the stock market but whatever comes to mind and whatever is on this morning’s newsfeed.

In other words, sky is the limit…

Stock Market Jargon: Gaps

Gaps are areas on a chart where the price of a stock (or another financial instrument) moves sharply up or down, with little or no trading in between. As a result, the asset’s chart shows a “gap” in the normal price pattern. The enterprising trader can interpret and exploit these gaps for profit. This article will help you understand how and why gaps occur, and how you can use them to make profitable trades.

Apple News

For those of you who own an Apple iPhone (or not), this morning’s news is dominated by the fact that Apple has once again beat the earnings estimates and set to post strong profits for the quarter. If this all pans out nicely then we will see Apple stock push to new highs and a nice gap up at the start of the trading session.

Yes! The DOW has surpassed the 22,000 mark this morning, in large part due to Apple’s strong quarterly earnings and reaching new highs.

And while we’re talking Apple…

Their new iPhone will be announced in the Fall and it is touted to being amazing and with new cutting edge features such as wireless charging and improved cameras. But whew… $1,200?

But, I know people out there who will WANT to have it. And that has been Apple’s selling point; they have high-end, expensive products that people are still willing to buy, regardless of price.

7:22am

The dust is settling now, and Apple Unfortunately, we could not get stock quote AAPL this time. stock price is down to around 157.20. I should’ve bought more shares yesterday but… shoulda, woulda, coulda!

What Kind of Vegan Are You?

I’m definitely a ‘Diet Vegan’ who is working towards being a ‘Lifestyle Vegan’. I believe I’m almost there, but I still have things in the house like ‘leather sofas’ and those are hard to change, but I’m working on it.

Okay, I’m out…
