the chart for AGNC is choppy, but looks like a converging triangle. i don't do much technical trading (cuz 99% of it its #$%$) but these things tend to presage a move, generally to the side they're converging to, which in this case is the up-side.
a few nickels before Friday would let me score green in the remaining calls from the Q4 Dollarmite. They've been red (the company moved the ex-div past the December expiry and the only thing that benefitted was the short Puts - hi, Doc! - leaving me with what I'd bought as recoupment but turned out to be risk; they're just now reaching par...)
so keep buying. it's good for you, like carrot juice and walking.
