Suckered many of us in on the gap up open only to make us bleed by day's end.
The strategy is getting so very old...and so very easy to spot.
If any fool's got fooled today, hit rec. on this post.
LOL, no rec's yet?
I guess the FOOL members are all 5 star investors lol.
Nope, went short at 1037 expecting 1040 resistance to hold.
I entered bearish positions in the foreign exchange market last nigh, sat on big losses this morning and am finally in the green.
lol. How much money did you lose this time ?
russian, I added to shorts today at the exact same stop.
everyone is using 1,040 as a resistance stop. The over and under was a nice short set-up. I'm disappointed I missed out on it.
I hope you aren't using real money and I hope nobody is listening to you. This market will be straight down for months.
Market green today, IBD goes bullish (late again)!!
I sold two leveraged short etf positions for profits today at the open. My sell-stops were unfortunately triggered. I am not turning bullish; however, I do feel we need to have a few positive days after this rapid move down. I will look to reenter the positions hopefully after some upward movement. After todays market action I'm not so sure I'll get a solid chance, but I feel good about taking some off the table here.
I will rec this only because I thought the rally today was for real and would last until the close.
I sat on my hands - seeing no compelling reasons to get in or get out.
i bought some in short etf dxd when dow was up 133 green and sold when red today. i now pay 59 bucks a month in stockchartsvideo.com and since then im making more money than losing it check it out . its your choice but this market is up and down but more slowly headed down little by little. and its been low volume with extreme volitility also
I hate to say that I got fooled here as in reality I look at the stock I bought on the morning GAP up as a stock that I simply value far greater than what I paid for....I like Caribou Coffee far more per share than what I paid..... I don't care if the stock market want's to smash it to pieces for the rest of this year and 1st half of next..... CBOU is my favorite place to grab a Coffee or a TEA beverage. I'll be back at CBOU a number of times before this month is out and I'll probably grab me a Bag of Caribou Coffee next time.
Wow Varchild, It takes a man to admitting getting Tea Bagged by a Caribou today lol.......... is it another gmcr!
I only trade when the market is closed to get rid of all the noise and emotion. I can think the most rationally only when the market is closed. I made 1.8% on my portfolio today, and I'm 50% in cash!
CBOU is by no means another GMCR.....It is really just a modest grower of earnings.... I view it's potential growth just shy/south of Beverage stocks like (DPS) except CBOU stores are global.
@BetapegLLCI gained about $6.50 or so today despite 3 stocks out of 4 selling off.... Thank you (DPS) for bailing me out again :-)
IBDValueinvestin is a bull again today. He's going all in 150% (the +50% is from margin).
Well, breached 1040 on the second attempt, not too surprising. It might still end up being a headfake but you never know.
