Weekend Reading – Barron’s Backs Me Up!

Unfortunately, despite the pullback, there are no re-entires on our Secret Santa’s Inflation Hedges from late December as they are all in the money and well ahead of the entries.  We do have re-loads on our Breakout Defense Part Deux Trades and those can substitute for inflation fighters going forward but we are miles above the original Breakout Defense Portfolio – which we closed quite some time ago.  Once things in Japan do settle down, we’ll be ready with a new, bullish portfolio but, at the moment – I’ll just be thrilled to see us take back our Major Breakout levels and hold them next week.
