    I have the CNBC app for push notifications about significant market news & after-market activities. During the week they always send bullshit narratives at COB, e.g. "Markets down on escalating troop movements in Ukraine border".

    Speaking of loss-aversion, SNE is the one black sheep in my portfolio. Fingers crossed Abenomics succeeds in revitalizing the economy.

    GF, just looked at the ticker. What's the sentiments today? ;)

    So speaking of sentiments...some time ago I posted about some nice success I had with an ETF that tracks the Canadian market. My personal sentiment is their real estate market has been ready to pop for quite some time. I want to take my double digit upside and move it into something else. Anyone have a low expense ETF or index fund back in the US to suggest? I'm thinking an index fund that tracks the Russell small cap.


    Edit.
    Here's today's sentiment:

    So last week the sky was falling...Monday morning we find ourselves in a bull market.

    Was psyched last night when I heard about the IBM / Apple enterprise partnership. AAPL was up ~1.3% AH.

    Today in the premarket, it was up ~2%. Awesome!

    Opens at ~1.8% and maintains that. Great!

    AAPL closes down 0.5%.

    WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    :brick:

    From the Alpha conference discussion, bought FLEX today. The case for PBR was pretty good, not sure though. Trimmed AMZN.

    Might reload on RAD, but I'm not sure its worth another bet.

    I had a feeling the Russia might trigger the correction we've been waiting on. The market doesn't seem interested.

    Bad earnings is the only thing hurting individual stocks (AMD)...there is a big up, then some consolidation, then more up.

    GE's spinoff of their financial division is good news.

    Oh man. Some big earnings releases this week.

    Getting really nervous about AAPL's. I think the iPad numbers are really going to disappoint and the stocks is either going to flatline, or drop a couple percentage points. Don't think we're going to get a big upside surprise and pop.

    :(

    Hope we get a decent pop from FB.

    I heard something about Yahoo going up because of the Alibab IPO. Honestly I'm not even in the markets right now but was flipping channels and saw some people chatting about this saying Yahoo stock should gain (recover?) becuase of it
