A very rotten day in the market if I do say so myself. (G) CPN, bless it's pointy little head, is not contributing to what are pretty substantial losses today. GO CPN
I think internet radio would give you many choices.
Wily Bill Gates is testing a system that allows someone to choose a type of station they like from within their community and it serves up a number of choices with a similar format with no commercials, etc.
I can't stand talk radio. LOL
"I am finding that most of the time when the parabolics are first hit, if you just bide your time (don't trade) you will often find that you are entering a base, which is generally a rectangle."
The exception is after a long run-up or drop. Often the 0.01 SAR will have hovered just above or just below the rectangle formed by a base, which is by that time obvious and you just set your buy or sell stops to catch the action.
I think I will have to put up some charts to really explain this if you care.
"I haven't been using the 20 day SMAs by themselves. I also been using the parabolic SAR as a key warning indicator and just plain old support and resistance."
To expand on that a little bit, and hopefully not confuze you more, I am finding myself more and more using the parabolic SAR with both a 0.01 and a 0.02 acceleration factor. If you look at some you will see they aren't far off from a simple 20 day SMA, but if you use some discretion with them, you don't get whipsawed as much.
I am finding that most of the time when the parabolics are first hit, if you just bide your time (don't trade) you will often find that you are entering a base, which is generally a rectangle. At that point, its better to just draw support and resistance lines on the rectangle and see which way it breaks. The SMA and the SAR will cross back and forth numerous times during such a phase but just ignore them.
I am also using a slightly modified SAR, which starts a bit differently than the one that Wilder first defined, but I like ti better.
"Or the absence of one in Stern."
It could happen, but sattelite radio is the future, if they can just figure a way to make it profitable.
I must be falling in love with the stock [G], since I was just thinking today how hard it is to find a good talk show station. I got really tired of Rush, and Sean during the elections, and can't stand the liberal radio guys that failed. I used to really like listening to Larry King at night when I was a kid in Miami, and he was a local. Then Art Bell was interesting for awhile. Now there is nothing worth listening to (at least in Atlanta). There is a need, and my kids are all saying you gotta have it in your car or maybe the wearable ones that are coming out next year.
