GoodVibe Thought - My True Friend!

July 01, 2009 – Comments (60) | RELATED TICKERS: PEO , PL , E

Until I see you back in a month, I would love to leave you with this thought...

"A true friend is one that makes me cry but cry with me not the one that makes me laugh while making people laugh at me!"

For those many I made them cry through my life out of care, I wish one day you understand and be there for me as I tried to be there for you!

 I wish this find you as much as you wish to find yourselves and a little bit more.        

 GoodVibe

I'm a little boy with glasses
The one they call a geek
A little girl who never smiles
'Cause I've got braces on my teeth
And I know how it feels
To cry myself to sleep

I'm that kid on every playground
who's always chosen last
I'm a single teenage mother
Tryin' to overcome my past

You don't have to be my friend
But is it too much to ask

Don't laugh at me
Don't call me names
Don't get your pleasure from my pain
In God's eyes we're all the same
Someday we'll all have perfect wings
Don't laugh at me

I'm the cripple on the corner
You've passed me on the street
And I wouldn't be out here beggin'
If I had enough to eat
And don't think I don't notice
That our eyes never meet

I lost my wife and little boy when
Someone cross that yellow line
The day we laid them in the ground
Is the day I lost my mind
And right now I'm down to holdin'
This little cardboard sign...so

Don't laugh at me
Don't call me names
Don't get your pleasure from my pain
In God's eyes we're all the same
Someday we'll all have perfect wings
Don't laugh at me

I'm fat,I'm thin, I'm short,I'm tall
I'm deaf, I'm blind, hey, aren't we all

Don't laugh at me
Don't call me names
Don't get your pleasure from my pain
In God's eyes we're all the same
Someday we'll all have perfect wings
Don't laugh at me

Another interesting perspective on true friendship:

 

Buffett recalled a friend of his in Omaha who had been in Auschwitz. He describes this friend as taking a long time to make friends because she has a simple test she applies to all potential friends. "Would this person hide me?"

Note about the posted chart:

The FIB spiral was first created and then proportionally scaled in Adobe Illustrator to position to the May high and March low. The spiral was not manipulated or disproportionally scaled.

There is an interesting intersection at 975 which is the mid-point between the high and low.

A larger version can be found here:

Thanks Innerflame - the intersections are very curious and overall seem to imply that we are heading into a new spiral. We're about to find out : )

Just for fun, I'll try a chart over a longer time frame to see if a graphic relationship occurs between spirals.

Does this potentially point to 945 as next high and then we create a new spiral?

hi kstarich,

Please don't use the chart for anything other then fun. I honestly have no idea how to interpret it.

As I was adding the channels (dotted lines) last night I was struck by the proportions and thought I'd add the spiral to see if there was a correlation. I thought GV would also get a kick out of the effort.

Oddly, the spiral aligned to the market drop that occurred in October of last year and to current price action. I find it extremely odd that 975 aligns to the edge of the spiral in such a proportional way.

If I was to hazard a guess based only on the look of the chart, the central portion of the spiral will represent the trading range for July; 790s - 910.

I'm looking for a "True Friend" as well in this struggle to see if the spiral can be aligned to market activity -- a confirmation of EWT by definition in "real time".

If the EW sequence and patterns are absolute by definition, one should be able to create a template to overlay past and present. Future projections are likely to be realized in the proportions of the sequence with a positive or negative deviation from the premise.

The obvious [first] problem is a consistent system of chart measure. All charts I've seen online are recalculated based on timeframe, price range, and intended presentation size.

They're all inaccurate if a consistent x,y measure is needed over time?

morning all,

it's a bit dead at work right now, so i figured i'd take a second to introduce myself. i am 23 years old and just recently got interested in investing when i started working full time a year ago. my only previous investing experience was when i bought some AMD back in 2004 at 12, watched it go up to 44, then back down to 3ish (i still own those shares). i got my start in investing by reading morningstar's help and education a few times. then i stumbled on to this website on morning.

i got my BS in petroleum engineering, and i am now working at a consulting firm. i love reading about macro economics. currently im reading the world is flat by thomas friedman. some of my favorite blogs are the hussman funds weekly comments, business inside, http://mises.org/, dividend growth investor. I also worked IT throughout college and like a bunch of tech blogs like gizmodo, engadget, fastcompany, ect.

i've learned a massive amount from everyone here TMF and in CILs. i want to thank everyone for the knowledge ive gained. i hope that one day i can contribute, but as of now i can only read and listen.

regards, pv

I would like to ask how the stops at the 900 area are supposed to work.  What is the purpose of a stop other than to minimize losses?  It would be best to put a stop loss at some point which would suggest you were wrong about the direction, right?... so I'm assuming if 900 is surpassed it is very unlikely to fall under that mark again?  Or are you looking for a better entry with the expectation that it will indeed fall again. . .  or do you plan on reassessing because your count or expectation was not met?  There must be preference involved based on trading style....  is 900 considered a tight stop for somehow who plans on seeing the entire "wave down" to completion?  In the same way like the last down completed at 666 (yikes). . . and hopefully the recent up at 956??

Cold,

Columbia's charts on Stockchart.com are a great help for the specifics of what is happening day to day.  Use these as a guide.  http://stockcharts.com/def/servlet/Favorites.CServlet?obj=ID3287600   -  And REMEMBER THAT YOU CAN VOTE FOR THEM ONCE A DAY!  This is some of the best information around   He is updating the charts on a daily basis to stay current so that they will be of the most use about the current situation.

Also, as far as general information,  I think that GoodVibe may have answered your question about stops.  He devoted a blog to his trading style including how he used stops.  If you find this of use, it is at http://caps.fool.com/Blogs/ViewPost.aspx?bpid=170103&t=01009449456398254945

For the moment, I am letting losses ride, but I am long in very little.  Mostly, I am on the sideline waiting for the drop.  I want to have the cash to buy in at lower prices.  Usually I lose money as the market drops and then wish I had sold high and bought back in after the drop.  I think we are close enough to a high to take my profits and sit back to wait.  (My 'losses' are in areas that are basic inflation hedges or bearish investments.  They will go up if the market goes down.)

Most important, decide what you plan to do, where you think things are headed, make a plan, and then work your plan.  Change it as and if conditions show that the market is not heading in the direction that you expected.  Right now, the charts and the general long-term consensus in the CIL seems to be in sync with what is happening.

Does any of this help?

Mary

Dear friend I am so with you on your position.  I too am all in cash at the moment.  I only have physical metal at the moment.  Reviewing everyone's charts I believe we are headed towards 750 level.  Either way I am going to watch and wait because I have cash and time on my side.  I feel confident in waiting for my edge which may not come until August :-)

This week's chart is from a cautious bear perspective. I think that  we have a temporary top in at 956.23 and are headed down to correct the big rally that IMO has just ended. I do think it will take some time for this second wave to play out and after cashing some winners am in cash hoping for some entry spots to open a few longs as this wave  bottoms. I am very busy with work this week and don't feel comfortable opening any new shorts and not being able to keep a close eye on them.

Found this on Wikipedia:

"Wave B: Prices reverse higher, which many see as a resumption of the now long-gone bull market. Those familiar with classical technical analysis may see the peak as the right shoulder of a head and shoulders reversal pattern. The volume during wave B should be lower than in wave A. By this point, fundamentals are probably no longer improving, but they most likely have not yet turned negative."

I hope you stuck to this Goodvibe.  It's good to be able to admit you were wrong in trading.  Even though I have busted your balls quite a bit about the whole "predictive powers of EWP" I am glad to see you didnt hold your shorts all the way back up and at least got out at 930 or so.

I have always said, If you can't take a small loss, sooner or later you will take the mother of all losses....

One of these "dramatic reversals" is going to be a "dramatic reversal" for real, but its going to be when people are so tired of shorting it that no one is on the short side when it finally happens.   There will be no "dramatic reversal" post in CAPS when it happens....   Is that now?  I have no clue, which is why when I covered in the high 800's back in June I stated in my blog I am not trying to short this myself anymore and am simply waiting for a good time to buy again, even if that is 2010 or 2011.   So much easier to make money on the upside.

RVA - I am here for one reason. To bring people together and bring TA to their attention so they can use it to their benefits. NOTHING ELSE! I am proud with what I started with the help of many friends here but I claim no credit for it.

As I always say; sometimes right, sometimes wrong, but always honest. No ONE win them all. I try my best and take risk more than anyone else I know but I never encourage others to follow me. For sometime now , I intentionally avoid making calls to let everyone make their own mind. 

Why you always concentrate on the negative. Why you want to prove me wrong all the time by taking things out of context or twisting the facts? Didn't you see the chart in comment #28 (EXACTLY at the bottom with three obvious stops to lock gains if they desire). Many people exited there making a lot of money. Even more than me and you. Thanks to EW not to me! Everyone here now call the shots themselves unlike before when I was the only one. I rarely make charts now and I only blog to bring TA to more people's attention.

For anyone (including myself) who stays short even until today is their own business. Not yours or mine to decide or to come back AFTER the facts to rub salt to their wounds. This not professional and every wise trader will tell you it's a big sin.

Let people have their own wings instead of me or you preaching to them and telling them what to think or what to do.

What do you think of putting this thing behind us and stop by the lounge and CORRECT people with strong opinions in a respectful manner with good TA or FA of yours. Everyone will love you and thank you for it.

I really hope this find you well and make you focus your energy with us to make a difference. Thank you in a advance!
