    If you can weather the storm, then why are you telling others?

    Is it a buy or sell here? If so why and for how long?

    If it is a hold then where will you exit, if ever?

    The new movie, Into the Woods will be released on Christmas Day. We should get the review soon. Trailer on YouTube looks very good. Stock may react after Monday, December 29, 2014, when major players return.

    S&P a year target is $98 and it is listed as outperform, other research firms like Zacks give natural rating.

    When a stock makes a new high on a low volume, the high is technically not confirmed, even then there is no over head supply, and how much Disney stock can go higher is anyone’s wild guess.

    Today’s activity near the close is normal by members on NYSE cleaning their inventory.

    Good luck!

    Sincerely,

    You maybe right, I will pick some soon around these levels. I am watching. there has to be some profit taking after such big run up. So if I lose and buy 25 to 50 cents up or down, makes no difference. I am a trader.

    My orders are in.

    Good lucK!

    funtoday89 I was considering selling to today at 95 but held on. I think I might pull the trigger tomorrow and buy back in the lower 90’s or under 90.

    1. Traders and investors have different objectives.
    2. It is very difficult to sell in strength.
    3. December 26, 2014 is Boxing Day.
    4. Disney is up 5% in the past 5 up days.
    5. What about 6 up days?....good luck!
    6. Google Search, 20 Golden Rules For Traders.

    20. Beat the crowd in and out the door. You have to take their money before they take yours, period.

    I am watching King of Kings on TCM.

    Wishing you all

    Based on volatility, I buy and sell once or twice in 10 to 15 days. This time it is getting closer to my exit point. But I a very busy with other stocks, so Disney is not my major play.

    Good luck!

    I have to go shopping and get deserts for dinner.

    Members of NYSE, and floor traders do not pay commission. Also floor traders can buy and sell without ever owing long or short. As long near the close the book s are balanced.

    It is like I selling 2500 shares 93.85 and half hour latter buying from someone else 93.55. it is at the close we will know, if traders would like to carry shares in the inventory. More than 55% volume of Disney is traders and dividend plays no role.

    I own Disney but as a trader I am watching. Any unusual move will create a reaction.

    As of now I am long on Disney and GPK, which is up for 5 weeks.

    Lot of Disney trading is due to index also.

    Very busy, please do not follow traders, you are smart long term investor and Disney will reward you.

    Good lucK!

    Sincerely,

    Carolyn Novice

    I own a few thousand long as of now.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Please Google search and see for yourself ….Disney on ice

    Disney Christmas gift for family and friends…

    Disney must now….consolidate ..93...93.25…93.50…93.75…94.00…..not sure yet if 94.25….94.50.. or new high…volume and shorts are still not there.

    Good luck!

    Sincerely,

    Carolyn Novice

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Lot of volatility yet ..low 93.22….high 93.73….Volatility = 0.51

    Average volatility is more than 1.25

    So will Disney break below 93.22 or above 93.73?...that is when volume comes…

    With market up sharply, future leaders are being accumulated.

    We need more than Average daily volume and a new high to give a buy signal.

    OBV will give screaming buy signal if DIS closes up today with more than 4.5 million volume.

    Please do your research before committing funds.

    Good luck!

    Sincerely,

    There is hardly and Dow Jones Average stock making New High, with Oils weak could DIS give a surprise?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • On Balance Volume is the highest since june 2013, and is a very bullish sign. But GPK is up for 5 weeks in row, which seldom happens. it will be a big surprise if it can set a record by closing higher this week. it would be nice if consolidates at these levels.

    We may get an early Holiday Gift .....GPK watch near close for sell of or buying by hedge funds.

    If volume and price moves higher, the next year leader is right here and it is GPK.

    Sincerely,

    Carolyn Novice

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • A good move from here all options will be excecised by brokers, investors will be stuck with selling stock, and then buying. Brokers end up with lot commission.

    Also block houses have software, which estimates what you will do based on your trading record.

    Kindly watch the big players make money, while others sit and watch, what and why it happend.

    Brokers will send an email tonight if the option was exercised or became worth less, Disney must be above 92.85 for not to be worthless

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Volume is more than 1.25 million in first 45 minutes. If the momentum continues, GPK may buy another company in 2015.

    Name and fame brings more investors.

    Good long-term buy.

    Sincerely,
    Carolyn Novice

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • There are only 150 new highs on NYSE, GPK makes one. Market is very oversold and GPK had a big correction. The company bought a very small company, and insiders were selling. Most traders decided to bailout. Now on this bullish market up move GPK is a leadership role. the price and volume indicate technically strong stock.

    if this trend continues and GPK closes strong, there will be short covering.

    Please forget the earning, it is the business model which has no competition at the locations GPK works. The plant and equipment and experience employees offer a good opportunity to collect for long-term investors.

    Cuba will offer more opportunities.

    GPK may create a new trading range 14.25-14,50, unless volume picks up, or we have a major excuse fro sell off.

    My feeling most weak stocks holders sold it to GS trades and now they will push it for big year end bonus.

    Good luck!

    Sincerely,

    Carolyn Novice

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • There is low volume, and not enough block activity. It is not the earning, at low oil price travel increases, and demand for auto parts increases. It is cheaper to buy the company, with plants and machinery than build one news.

    It could be long term turn around situation. The test comes if MTOR moves in the range of 14.50 -15.00 trading range before Christmas.

    Good luck!

  • Swiss interest rate to turn negative
    Last updated 1 hour ago

    Swiss 100 franc note and cash machine
    Switzerland's National Bank (SNB) will bring in a negative interest rate cutting the value of large sums of money left on deposit in the country.

    The Bank is imposing a rate of minus 0.25% on "sight deposits" - a form of instant access account - of more than 10m Swiss francs ($9.77m).

    It is trying to lower the value of the Swiss franc, which has risen recently.

    Russia's market meltdown and a dramatic plunge in the oil price have led investors to seek "safe havens".

    The announcement sent the franc lower, and in early trading the euro was buying 1.201 Swiss francs, fewer than the 1.203 it was worth before the news, just within the target.
