NMO Final Target Hit NMO (Nuveen Muni Opportunity Fund) hit the final target of 12.52 & will be moved to the Completed Trades category. Consider booking partial or full profits and/or raising stops to protect profits for those planning to hold NMO as a longer-term income producing investment. With a current tax-free* distribution rate of 6.35%, NMO still offers a very attractive after-tax income stream for investors in higher-tax brackets seeking current income. (*Most or all dividends free from federal but not necessarily state income tax. Click here for more info on NMO)
In taking some time off this week, I just noticed that several of the active long Growth & Income Trade Ideas have recently hit an initial and/or final profit target. I have a few things outside of trading to take care this morning but will post updated charts on each of these trades later today or over the weekend. As always, all previous charts and commentary on any trade idea posted on RSOTC can be quickly referenced via the symbol tags. Symbol tags for each stock, ETF or index mentioned in a post will appear at the bottom right hand of [...]

Therefore, all other things being equal, a longer-term trader or investor [...]
Back on December 17, 2012 I made a very comprehensive post on the fixed-income sector covering all major domestic (US) fixed-income classes: Treasuries, Municipals, Investment Grade Corporate and Low-Grade (Junk) Bonds. This gist of that post, which can be viewed here, was that the entire sector looked very bearish and that rates were were likely to rise considerably which meant that prices would fall, which has clearly been the case since then. Although I did want to follow-up on that post as an example of how technical analysis works just as effectively on all asset class, not just stocks, the primary [...]
In the past I was much more active in covering the fixed income markets but with bonds the primary target of Bernanke's printing party, I've felt, and still do, that many of the traditional "cues" for the stock market that have historically been derived from the bond market are of little, if any value at this time due to the extreme price manipulation of said instruments by the Fed. For the most part though, I am referring to the US Treasury market but lately I've been paying much more attention to the rest of the fixed income market, primarily investment grade [...]
