    The 3D stampede

    An online dictionary offered the following explanation for the word STAMPEDE.

    (1) an occurrence in which a large group of frightened or excited animals or people run together in a wild and uncontrolled way to escape from something, for something.

    (2) a situation in which a lot of people try to do the same thing at the same time

    3D printing, whatever you call it, has just started the next manufacturing revolution. There are 4-5 publicly traded companies, all relatively small. On the other hand, mountains of money are chasing for the same thing. This causes the STAMPEDE. It is irrational, spectacular, powerful, confusion, and even ridiculous. In this case, the traditional metric of valuation is irrelevant. Anyone who tries stop it get killed. As a trader, we must joint it, ride it with it. Of course, such craziness will eventually stop, but it is not our job to stop it --- we stop with it and we must know how when the time is right.

    xone reported bad earnings, but did not crash. It will continue going up. On bad news going up is the most bullish sign for a stock. vject reported the so-called good earnings, but it is only 3 million euros. It has reached sky high valuation, but it continues going up, becoming sky higher. DDD and SSYS are doing similar things. onvo is another example.

    Humans are stupid as they demonstrate herd mentality. But at this moment, stupidity makes money.

    • Nothing goes up in a straight line. The market has been strong lately so shorts have to cover. The swings can be 10 50%. Look at all the charts, except VJET still newer but will behave the same. ONVO jumped 60% in a few days. They are so so overbought except XONE at this point. In June ONE went up huge the came back to earth again. The faster they fly, they can drop quickly too. We all trade long enough to know this.

      The market is the key driver at this time. Remember right before the default decision, the momentum stocks got killed first. So we will see how many days the Yellen effect will take place.


    • Indeed, speaking about stampedes... with more than 40% of ExOne's shares sold short we'll witness a mass stampede to cover once XONE settles in the $64 to $68 range.

      This will be the grand slam that every seller wishes they still held long!
