Tuesday's Small Lots

I entered three new shares positions under my small-lots strategy:

I exited four positions under the strategy:

Out of interest, I analyzed 813 symbols with bullish ratings from Zacks Investment Research this morning, looking for general bull plays rather than earnings announcement or price channel breakouts, and found that none of the 20 MACD histogram crossovers was to the upside. 

Since the no-fee broker that makes my small-lot strategy possible, Robinhood Financial, doesn't take short trades, that means none of the MACD crossovers qualifies for trading under my small-lots strategy.

However bullish the large indexes, like the S&P 500, may be, I'm seeing a heavy strain of bearishness in my own analysis.

Robinhood has short-selling in a beta testing phase, and if fortune smiles they'll release to all traders soon.
