HedgeFundLIVE.com — Reposting my blog (with updated stats) from Feb. 11, 2011, a very similar day to today in that we made a round trip (up) day on a Friday.
The action in the Spooz so far today reminded me of a blog that I had written on Jan. 14, 2011. I had run an analysis on Round Trip days.
A “Round Trip” is a HFL coined term that means a name has moved from below S4 to above R4 or vice versa (R4 down to S4). We saw this action on Jan. 14, which happened to be a Friday like today as well.
Here are the updated stats for what occurs in the market on the day following a round trip up (S4 to R4):
