    Re: SPLS - MACD crosses above zero (bull

    Yup, MACD is GREEN! Been waiting a while for this moment. Nothing to do but enjoy riding the wave.

    • Be carefull the area is green, but you can not
      follow the chart with out your own point of view in spls
      I will use the green area as a sale signal, if you
      check all gree areas the stock went down after the
      signal.MACD and stochastic (94-96), and today it has been
      trading in doji start patter for me is a Sale
      signal

      This is my point of view and not a recomendation to
      buy or sale

        mati_sse,

        Your message makes absolutely no
        sense. You are assuming that the past equals the future.
        If that was true, then why is Microsoft taking a hit
        compared to the past 20 years? Remember one thing...the
        reason why SPLS is turning positive is because they are
        virtually eliminating the competition and they will have
        the field all to themselves. They WILL DOMINATE the
        office supplies industry for the next decade and beyond.
        The market is just realizing this. Imagine Home Depot
        WITHOUT Lowes! It would be TOTAL DOMINANCE. Now picture
        STAPLES WITHOUT Office Depot (closing 200+ stores next
        year) and Office Max (chapter 11 is around the corner).
        TOTAL DOMINANCE!

        REMEMBER ONE THING: THE PAST
        DOES NOT EQUAL THE FUTURE.

        To make it short,
        many things have changed in this industry during Y2K,
        and SPLS emerged as the undisputed winner, hands
        down.

        This year it will be EXTREMELY good for
        SPLS investors because the company put aside its
        aggressive expansion plan (opening in 1 market this year
        compared to the 100+ markets/year rate in the past 15
        years). What does this mean? It means that instead of
        investing that money towards physical expansion (=opening
        hundreds of stores), it's time to collect money for SPLS
        shareholders.

        2001 will make a lot of SPLS investors
        EXTREMELY HAPPY.
