THE STARBUCKS/COFFEE CORRELATION
As I have stated on several occasions before here in this column, I am a rules-based trader. I donít like trading off tips, recommendations, analyst buys or sells, or so on. I like one plus one to equal two before I take a short-term trade. But long term? Thatís a different story. I hate to say it, but sometimes I get my best ideas for long-term trades while reading the news or watching TV.
As I write this article, I am hearing a news story that somehow seemed to pass over my desk until now.
