Sterling Market Commentary for Thursday March 15th, 2012

Twitter Model Portfolio Tweet Policy: Currently Sterling Investment Services is managing a trading strategy based upon covered puts and calls. Sterling Investments is currently running a “Model Portfolio” that is based upon this strategy. It should be noted, that at this point in time, Sterling Investment Services is only “paper trading” this model portfolio, and not actually executing trades and creating actual positions within this model portfolio. Therefore, please do not look for actual volume associated with our options selections. It is Sterling Investment Services goal to initiate trading in an actual account based upon our model portfolio in the near future. When that change actually occurs, Sterling Investments will notify its readers via Twitter and our website.

Sterling Market Commentary for Wednesday March 14th, 2012

We are going to start something new today at Sterling Investments; we are going to start tweeting our daily trading idea. I used to to publish a daily trading letter, the Sterling Prime Stock Newsletter, but I found that the changes to the market from the rise of modern computer driven trading has pushed the time by which I selected the day’s recommendation closer and closer to the open where I was unable to publish the recommendation with enough time for my readers to take advantage of the recommendation. Additionally as the volatility in the market increased, I found the short term trading of individual stocks to be increasingly more difficult to manage. This resulted in my shifting my trading strategy to one of covered puts and calls. Granted it is not the most exciting, but the results are a lot more consistent. So, starting with tomorrow’s market commentary, I am going to start tweeting our daily stock and options recommendation once we have selected the position.
