PREDICTIONS FOR 2012

Now, let's first take a look at some of my predictions from last year. On December 28, 2011, I went on CNBC with Brian Sullivan and he asked me for my favorite tech set-up and retail set-up for 2012. My tech pick was Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) as it set up for a break higher out of a multi-year base. It has been a roller coaster year for GOOG, but it has shown resilience overall. My first target on GOOG was $750, and the stock went as high as $775.

My retail stock of the year was Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT), which was set-up in a tight 12-year base. My target for the trade was a modest move to $72, but the stock dramatically exceeded those expectations, reaching as high as $77. I certainly did not execute those trades to perfection, but they prove that you can also generate alpha with a macro technical plan.

Our thesis has been that equities are far from dead, but as an active trader, there are times to have "risk on" and times to have "risk off." I often talk about my aggression level using terms like "tactical approach"-which means I am being more of a selective short-term sniper-versus a "portfolio approach"-which means I am looking to swing multiple positions for multiple weeks. I adjust my approach based on the "condition" and "composure" of the markets. We pride ourselves on being able to navigate intermediate-term trends by using the same patterns that repeat themselves year after year. Take a look at the action in 2012:
