GRO at 1.68

MACD is negative though (bad for multiday), I'll buy in more when/if it crosses but just in half for now.

Looks like it's going to be another spot on with the market ETF.  Grin Right now my tentative target for SRTY is 28 but I'll see how bad it gets.

Also watching CRWV for possible entry at .86

and LBAS at .79

Out of SRTY near $27.

CRWV hit $.10 but is meeting resistance; might get in if it can pullback nicely to .09

Weird spike on the market.  Don't think it'll last though - back into SRTY at 25 (but not holding overnight).

Into JCOFD at .505

Think it's a safe play near the bottom here, lots of bids stacked at .49 and very thin ask on level 2.

JCOFD

On SRTY - looks like I'll hold after all, but it's forming a triple bottom so I'm not too concerned.  If it breaks that, it'd just be a small loss.

Here's a slow and steady stock for those who like week-by-week instead of daily.  Haven't seen a nice chart like this in a while, but I'd wait for pullback to the 30-day SMA.

Volume and bid size is increasing by a lot on TSTRQ.  I think it'll finally break .0168 here -there are few sell orders after that until we get into the .020 range (based on level 2).

But this is also the 3rd time it's testing .0168 so if it doesn't break, I'm done.

Looks like we might get a head-and-shoulders formation to confirm the reversal on the DOW to a downtrend.  Got into SRTY a day early yesterday but ah well Tongue Guess I'm used to penny stocks where the results are more immediate.  Averaged into SRTY at $24 now.



The MACD is also crossing downwards on the 30-min scale, which came right before the last drop for the DOW.

Going to either sell or buy more of SRTY tomorrow depending how the market reacts to Bernanke.

Watching TSTRQ for exit.  If it doesn't break .0168 soon, I'll just take profit at .0160 (in from .013).

Watching to see if the DOW holds above 11.15k here - think if it breaks that, then it's a signal the current rally is over.

11.15k broken - should be downtrend now. Tongue Loaded more SRTY (but will fill the last 3rd tomorrow).
Let's see if I can predict the markets a third time in a row. Tongue

Can get out of OPSY at .011 right now... but it might go higher later in the day. Not sure. -_-

Gotta go to some mandatory class orientation now though <_<.  I guess I'll hold - will be so mad if I lose out as a result.

Zzz got out full at 45 actually. -_- My order didn't make it because of the classroom internet. <_<

I guess I'll wait to see if the market crashes again this Friday instead (and buy SRTY again to short).

Yeah - that's the last straw.  No more morning classes or anything at all during market hours.
OPSY just barely missed my sell limit before tanking and I got out of URTY prematurely.  Going to hope for a bounce on OPSY but otherwise a lot of cleaning up to do. <_<

Moved everything from LBAS to RYUN this morning.  Didn't like the gapdown on LBAS during a good day and RYUN looked a lot better holding its previous day's highs.

Also not going to wait for anyone to get on chat for buy/sell points anymore.  Too costly - missed 3 potential exits on LBAS the last few days as a result.  I'll still post stocks + my own entries/exits here and you're welcome to discuss here, but it's on you to get in or out yourself.

RYUN is back - just broke $1.20 today.  It fell a lot after the debt ceiling crisis (but nothing changed about the company).  Got in a modest amount and will see how close it can get back to its $2.00 range.

Out half of SRTY at 26.5 (from 23.2) - saving half incase the market goes lower mid-day when activity is least.
