Happy New Year!  Time to get to work.  The first couple days of 2009 have been on the quiet side however that is not to say that there have not been good trading opportunities.  I have been focused on listening to the market to make sure that I am making the appropriate adjustments.  So far I have been able to make money on both sides of the market.  Timing and stock selection have been critical.  It is important to trade the sectors that are in play now regardless of what they did last year.  I think that the themes for the first part of the year will be different from last year and by trading both long and short positions I believe that I will be able to figure out what the market is telling me to do.

Good luck.
