I am both a short term trader and a long term investor involved in the Forex market and stocks.
Approximately 70% of my portfolio is on long term investment vehicles like stocks, while the remaining 30% is in Forex, CFDs and Binary Options, 10% each.
As such am both long/short equity in most cases, but my disclosures are usually based on the long-term holdings.
Therefore, sometimes when I say I have no position held in a particular stock, that does not mean that I won't be trading it via CFDs if available within the next few days.
Alibaba has an exciting growth story as it seeks to cut its exposure to the Chinese economy by widening its wing-span. Alibaba stock is down nearly 20% YTD, which means there is still time to buy Alibaba stock before it rallies on.
