    How Low Can You Go?

    I see we hit my target ($5.70) right out of the gate, this morning.

    And I should say it went there even though there were naysayers.

    And this one:

    "I think your technical assessment is way off."

    And as I recall, there were a couple more, oh yeah, this one:

    "I do not agree with you TA I find it over blown and innaccurate."

    From the same guy.

    My point is, you really don't have to like TA (mine or anyone else's), but it doesn't hurt to listen and learn.

    And just for the record, we are now trading below ALL Three Moving Averages:


    P.S. Anyone recognize where my Subject Line came from?

    • Thank you. Please, where do you see the next stop at or how low can we go?

    • BSX Declines

      yes one part of your technical assessment has come true. You have hit the $5.70 mark.

      However I believe this is far more a function of the overall market for the past month as opposed to a function of this specific stock.;range=1m;compare=^dji+^ixic+^gspc;indicator=sma(20,200,50)+volume;charttype=area;crosshair=on;ohlcvalues=0;logscale=off;source=undefined;

      Notice how closely this stock has gone right along with the 3 major averages. This is a function of the overall market.

      And on your death cross scenario eventually playing out in sometime other then the next year. You have gained 1 penny the 200 day and the 50 day moving average are now 13 cents apart as opposed to 14 cents apart 2 weeks ago. I still do not see that as even a possibility in the next 3 months.

      I still do not think your technical assessment is that accurate.

      I think if the overall market had gone sideways or up you would not have gotten 5.70.

      My opinion. No way to tell for sure.

      So see if you can respond with no name calling? or personal attacks.

      • Ma,

        "However I believe this is far more a function of the overall market for the past month as opposed to a function of this specific stock."

        It sounds like you are trying to 'unjustify' my target of $5.70.

        'Believe it or not, the stock price was attracted to that area, irregardless of any other stock.

        Either way, I made the call 10 days ago, I felt strongly about that target, so I posted it.

        One of the things that caught my attention, was how you had tried to tear apart my initial post, saying how analysts had to be accurate to the penny, yet if one of your buddy's make a call (Ritchy has made a bunch) you never said a single word (other than cheering them on), and none of his were correct.

        As a matter of fact, he has been caught lying about his 'signals', and you never batted an eye. So at best, you appear extremely biased.

        If someone makes a bullish 'guess' no problem, but if someone makes an accurate prediction, they are slammed all over the msg board.

        "I still do not think your technical assessment is that accurate."

        You can THINK whatever you want, but the bottom line is: The Tape Don't Lie!!!!


      • Link did not copy right.

        I'll try again;range=1m;compare=^dji+^ixic+^gspc;indicator=sma(20,200,50)+volume;charttype=area;crosshair=on;ohlcvalues=0;logscale=off;source=undefined;

    • Buy when it drops, sell the pops.
      What is so hard to understand?

      Like someone said, everything is down.

    • I was merely sharing an observation.

      If you think the call I made 10 days ago was so obvious, tell us why you spent hours telling me I was wrong, right up till the moment it happened, then suddenly you 'knew' it all along?

      If it was so obvious that the whole market was down, hence BSX would surely be down, why wasn't it obvious to you?

      Come on, Einstein, tell us!

    • Roberta,

      Go back and read your first post, and you will see this gem in it: "everything is down.", and take a wild guess who wrote it. That's right, YOU! Too bad YOU'RE so out of control, you can't even remember something you wrote the same afternoon.

      I wonder how come, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, comes Mr Big Mouth, thinking he can create a new ID, and convince others how much smarter he is, when he can't even post a link or remember what he wrote.

      Yeah, blame it on Yahoo, real mature.

      Like I said before, make a call of your own, then get back to me.

      Big mouthed, know nothings are a dime a dozen.


    • BSX Declines

      What you are truly saying stuff that makes no sense. An observation? What are you talking about?

      It was obvious to me that if the entire market went down you might make your 5.70 price call that was my point.


      What are you talking about? Have you lost it?

    • The Dow, the S&P and NASDAQ have been in a down trend and ALL were down today.

      Everything being down was a reference to those indexes (with Yahoo links provided). Another poster pointed that out also. Sorry that your drinking impaired your ability to understand something as significant as the Dow, S&P and NASDAQ all being down.

      Given all the anger and hostility in your posts, it appeared your comment implied every stock was down. Every stock was not, but the indexes were.

      I have had my ID for years. Sorry you can't cope with that, but facts mean nothing to you.
      You are just here to argue.

    • In your 5:03 post, you said:

      "Nowhere does my post say that EVERYTHING is down today."

      I point out that you DID say it, (in your 1:15 post) so instead of
      'manning up' you are skirting the subject.

      Yeah, real credible!

      So if your ID is not newly created, point out one of your 'other' posts.

      Lets see if you have ANY credibility.

    • "It was obvious to me that if the entire market went down you might make your 5.70 price call that was my point."

      That's funny, you never said anything that was even close to that.

      Not until someone else mentioned it this afternoon.

      Sure, that's real believable, for 9 days you fought tooth and nail, telling me I was wrong, etc, etc.

      All of sudden a stranger with a new ID shows up, mentions that he thinks BSX was down ONLY because the Index's were down, and THEN you mention:

      "It was obvious to me that if the entire market went down you might make your 5.70 price call that was my point."

      The Subject line of our discussion (prior to today) was:

      "WHY IS BSX DOWN? STJ IS UP 4%!"

      Which shows that OTHER stocks were up, while BSX was down.

      You're trying to pull a con job on me, but there is NOTHING posted from you that confirms it, so I'm calling you out on it. All of your posts on that subject clearly indicate you did NOT think BSX would touch 5.70.

      YOU were WRONG and now you are lying!!!!!

    • BSX Declines blows pro

      You have lost it. You can't even make a coherent arguement anymore.
