time to short portefeuille!
don't believe the hype!
Now you are talking my friend!
I suggest - Heged_portfeuille...... as a player...conviction longs and other shorts.
Hans.....one of these days we need to connect in RL
Today's action is a great "SET-UP" for a 400-500 UP day on the Dow later this week.
It will help give hope to the bears and short sellers that we have reached another important peak.
Then, WHAM!!! A monster UP day to dash their hopes of recovering now mounting losses.
The internet and CAPS blogs are getting full last week and again today of confident predictions this bear market rally is over.
By the time most traders and investors "realize" the bear market ended in March, they will have missed most of the easy money back to 1000 on the S&P 500 and 9300-10000 on the Dow. That's the way its worked in past early bull market moves at least. I will bet history repeats itself.

Keep an eye on . . . vanamonde
I have been watching him since I started the CAPS game, and he may be the best "thumbs up" picker outside of the bloggers on this webpage of course. He picks OTC and NYSE stocks, large, medium and small companies in many industries and has done very well for himself. He has been in the Top 40 all along.
He has made thumbs down gains also, but most of his points are buy predictions.
portefeuille: Earlier this evening you said "I was just wondering how you (bravobevo) made your points. Somehow I can't catch up (which is okay!) and most of the stocks you have chosen to rate were completely unknown to me. Could you elaborate on how you managed to pretty steadily gain points and have left even all those other OB/PK "specialists" in the dust?"
First let me tell you congratulations on how well you are playing. Actually, I do expect that you will "catch up" and pass me soon enough. Something that has benefitted my style is I that when I find some stocks that tend to move up and down within a bandwidth, I'm not hesitant to ride on either side of the trade, both up and down. From that I have been able to score plenty of "points" on some .OB stocks. I've noticed that some players are only willing to trade one side, either up or down, but not up and down.
Some of the stocks that I continue to pick in this manner are AEBF, ISRL, JADA and OZOM, which have individually netted me returns ranging from +300 points to +500 points. A few hundred points here, a few hundred points there, and pretty soon you have a serious score. There are other stocks that either have been acquired and merged into other businesses or have been delisted.
You are welcome to look at my trades and see if you discern other patterns. Otherwise, I really like your trading style and I expect you to continue to do well. Best wishes to you!

That is the perfect trade if it works, I guess. I am really having a hard time just trying to keep up with the slope of your score point curve. But it is a nice challenge.
Best wishes to you as well!
