Boy, the post-Thanksgiving market really gave everyone a serious case of indigestion.  But, just when it looked like it was an usual December fade, the market rallied nicely. 

I don’t think the battle is completely settled, though, although if we hold the market gains for a few days next week, the St. Nick rally is probably a “go.”

One high profile stock I’ve not dabbled in is Facebook (FB).  For some reason, though, I’ve been on it more lately, and that had me jumping on the recent breakout

A few weeks ago, I talked about how downtrodden Tesla (TSLA) had become.  Recently it perked up a bit, and if you’re nimble I think you can snag a good trade. 

Okay, 3 weeks until 2014.  Here’s hoping it’s a green Xmas.
