LYONS MARKET UPDATE – Monday, December 31, 2018 Cash is a good place to be!  I took a few short stock positions and quickly covered them as they were going in the wrong direction and the Fund ended up nearly break-even on the trade.  I believe this is a trader’s market and not an investors’ market.  I will continue to sit...

LYONS MARKET UPDATE – Monday, December 17, 2018The S&P 500 Index is down about 1%, YTD!  From January 1, 2018 to September 20, the S&P 500 was up over 11% and now has a negative return for the year.  What caused this “week” to be so “weak” and lose 1.4%?  I believe potentially higher rates by the Fed and more trade...

I consider myself an investor who sometimes trades when I feel the opportunity outweighs the potential risk. I wrote the LIONX Prospectus to allow me the flexibility to be long, short or anywhere in between. I did not...

The Issachar Fund (LIONX) invested in four stocks (2% each) in the Health Care and Cloud related industries on Thursday (29th) and has 92% in Cash.  If these starter positions do not perform as I expect or the market rolls over, I will not hesitate to go back to 100% Cash. Cash is Not Trash….Cash is a Position! I would rather be in Cash...

The Fund’s portfolio went to all Cash on October 4th after my sell stops were triggered and have only been lightly invested (25%) for about three days since then. I believe market risk is high, and I am more concerned with the return “of my money” instead of a return...
