You Were Born To Win

Good morning folks,
The dollar is slightly lower this morning while gold, silver and oil are slightly higher. That ACRX we talked about in yesterday's Ticker Tv live session is gapping up 19 percent off meeting its primary endpoint. The company has a decent amount of cash on hand could get some follow through. 

There is a lot of merger and acquisition chatter out there this morning in  several sectors ranging from real estate, industrials and tech. That could be good for the markets moving forward. Typically the company doing the acquiring  will see a pull back in the stock price unless the acquisition is immediately accretive to their earnings per share. 

It should be an interesting week with all the economic data and the Fed minutes.

We are making a few changes on the Alpha Wolf Trading site and about to test a new chat service . Once we have it integrated I will let you know. For now we are meeting in the the old room
