The following is the beginning of my list of (to be developed) Core Holdings:
My only concern is whether to start accumulating when the Dow 30 falls to 7500 or 6000 (update 2-18-09) we were very close to 7500 yesterday, which is a double bottom to the previous low in Nov 22, 08. A natural resistence, however, other non-market issues are far from predicting a "blood bath" low - so, breaking 7000 looks bright and maybe a 6800 low - need lots of Volume and blood on the streets -
and "good news" for a pull out.)
I currently have call options on GE, INTC and DOW and positions in PWE (Oil) XTXI (gas transmission) These positions represent 25% of my LqNW (liquid net worth) the remainder is in Money Markets.
