Don't be stupid. Use charts. I'm not going to teach you how, that's your problem. Buy books or use google to learn how. SPRD was a buy back in early Dec 2012. Check the charts out yourself. SPRD is again a buy right now at around $16, but to me it's a weak buy, not a strong one like back in Dec 2012. I shorted AXP, UAL, and CAT recently. You can check the charts and learn why I did that.
Again. If you follow the charts, you'd had made money. Longs make money. Shorts make money. Stupid bagholders lose money. Trading stocks is like running a business. And in a typical business, you will not make money on every single transaction, however, you would want to make more money than you lose. In order for that to happen, you need to develop a system and follow it. Idiots like CHS and Pepsiburger aren't the tools you should have to run your business. The sad fact is that they really think they could predict stock prices using their crystal balls.
