    Why the drop today?

    Stocks run up before the earning and then for some created reason there is profit taking. Look at the market as whole it went through a nice correction, for all sorts of news. Those who sold at the bottom have yet to get back.
    Please Google search, Street Smart Report.

    We could see another 5% to 15% decline. The stock PE is little ahead of its historical average. US dollar is very strong that is also another reason.

    BABA made new high and there was shift of funds by traders.
    If you are longterm investor, ICLR will reward you for having confidence in your research. I have tried to sell and buy cheaper a few times. There is very little public held float. ICLR has gone up or down 5% on less than 50,000 shares traded.

    There will be a stock split next year and earning will catch up with PE.

    Good luck!

  • You are seeing a technical bounce from much oversold condition, what TRN takes another leg down? Can you take it? if so how long? Please see near the close if it takes the down direction?

    Kindly be careful and review what is going on. It is never easy to take losses with good earning, but market says otherwise.

    Please listen to CNBC and claims, it is your money, try to sell 25% and see how you feel an hour later. At this price someone should make a bid, but why?

    Good luck!

    Looking at the stock drop, I hope there no major legal battle. I checked with the company and there is no major news.

    I sold GILD when it dropped 10 points two weeks ago. I took my losses and it is at a new high.

    You are smart to take action as you see fit. It is better to own DIS or BABA.

  • please Google search and read before the opening. Also chinese market close to new high.

    Good luck!
    Low volume consolidation and then the earnings impact. But longterm this could be a very wise investment.
    For professional traders option after the earning is a safer bet.

    Option buyers are playing a different tune. Chinese market will most likely make a new high, after you watch 60 minutes. Rest it is battle for survivors between hedge funds and mutual funds. More than 20 million share volume and bid and offer differene of 1 to 2 cents, will bring big players and traders.

    It is raining in New York, and we need to invest in BABA now for rainy days. After the earning stock can swing 5% in either direction. But by the end the week, we could all be in for big surprise.

    I think BABA will move up to new high, and the volume will give us momentum, to close are one the new high.
    Good luck!

    This drop and high volume is due to derivatives. Some big player wrote puts on millions of shares, when the stock was near high. At that time it was easy money. But as stock dropped the investment group had to sell millions of shares at market so that it can buy at lower price.

    It is like selling the stock at the market when future price is at discount to current price. Derivatives are used by bug owners of the stock to protect from unexpected drop or rise.

    Monday, November 3, 2014 the Japanese market is closed. Tuesday Election Day, market will be watching to see if there is new leadership. Nearly everyone is getting Bullish on BABA. The traders who work for GS, get more than $250,000 yearly bonus. And they have to prove we all were wrong.

    Looking at the market leaders each went down after earning, and then bounced back after a few days. I think BABA will do what has to before the earning.

    Chinese market made a new yearly high, now will there be a follow through. US markets had big run up now it needs time to digest the gains.

    We can say BABA should be with in 5% of existing price. There are lot of folks who got BABA IPO and may lock in profits,

    Monday, November 3, 2014, Premarket new high will give us some clue to the earnings. Earning is known to lot of folks before public.

    We have to know who knew and when?

    Good luck!

  • BABA Makes New Life Time High on October 28, 2014 @ 100.67 …volume 32,003,600 High

    Stock trading activity makes it a strong new leader for this next up move in the market.

    There is very little overhead supply at new high. Consolidation phase is over and this is a good opportunity to add to your portfolio.

    There are SEVEN PILLARS OF STOCK MARKET PRACTICE necessary for success.
    1. Determine whether the market is in a “bear” or “bull” trend.
    Then determine further whether it is a major, intermediate, or minor trend.
    TRADE WITH THE TREND!

    2. Determine which groups of stocks are the strongest.
    TRADE IN STRONG GROUPS FOR ADVANCE! TRADE IN WEAK GROUPS FOR DECLINE!

    3. Select the strongest stocks in these particular groups.
    TRADE IN STRONG STOCKS FOR ADVANCE! TRADE IN WEAK STOCKS FOR DECLINE!

    4. BUY ONLY ON REACTIONS-not on advances!
    SELL AND SHORT ONLY ON ADVANCES-not on declines!

    5. Place a mental or (if you do not watch the tape) actual stop-loss order of two or three points on your trades.
    BE AT ALL TIMES PROTECTED AGAINST POSSIBLE LOSSES!
    CLOSE OUT WHEN TRADE GOES AGAINST YOU.

    6. Protect your profits by stop-loss orders. Let your profits grow when you see your stocks advancing.
    HOLD OUT FOR LARGER PROFITS!

    7. Do not hesitate to take your profits; you may be able to re-buy the same stock at lower prices.
    SELL WHEN YOU THINK THE MARKET IS DUE FOR A REACTION!
    SELL AT THE TOP * * * NOT AT THE BOTTOM
    BUY AT THE BOTTOM NOT AT THE TOP

    BABA Stock rallied on HIGH VOLUME and will most likely consolidate at low volume in a trading range above these prices.

    Earning is know in China if you are member of the right party. Lot of Mutual funds wrote options ..100...105. They got IPO at $68. We will know near the close if this trend can continue,

    Now options are being recovered. And lot of traders buying and selling for 50 cents to $1.

    Lot folks said same thing about other fliers like Google.

    Market leadership is very good like Dwight D. Eisenhower after the victory.

    He is paid to tell you what you are waiting to hear. Two weeks ago whatever he said was forgotten, and stock slided after the IPO.

    Never let other convince you where and what to invest. You should invest based on your research.

    Whenever a stock makes a new high, and after hours makes another new high on more than 500,000 shares, it is a good clue what markets major players are doing.

    Good luck!

    Tomorrow the earning and guidance will decide where BABA should be.

    What happens after the earning, and stock has moved?
    That maybe a good idea to participate. Today's volume and price makes it high momentum stock, which computer buying by smart money.

    Late buying and BABA moving to 105 is computer related, someone in China or Hong Kong knows the news. After hour trading is risky. After hour volume was about one million shares and stock jumped more than 3 points.

    During regular hours one could buy or sell million shares with less 50 cents difference.

    It will be wise to wait for earning at 7:30am and listen to the guidance.
    Please DONOT confuse, bad earning or missed by 5 or 10 cents and stock drops 5% or 10%.

    We are in the bull phase of the market after the correction. Please look at the Japan market right now, it is up about 700 points to knew high. China will follow suite.

    Kindly sit and relax, after a big move stock needs rest, or we call it consolidation.

    After 90 days the next earning will drive the stock above November 3 or November 4, 2014 new high.

    Not many institutions got BABA in IPO, and then gave up on correction.

    Today's volume of 40,000,000 and price movement gives BABA high momentum stock.

    Please forget the news and election story. World markets are giving a buy signal.

    Even if BABA and drops a few points. It will recover and will be higer after Thanksgiving.

    BABA is story stock and will leed the market. Pleae look at the coverage it is getting, the stock is being accumulated and if you own it then have lot of patience.

    BABA had more than 40 million shares traded, so 27 million shorts have no impact. Here are some reason.
    1. Some shorts against the box, some broker do not allow IPO shares sold for 6 weeks. Otherwise no future IPO.

    2. There are folks who own options and are selling short, they will get the stock at 90 and shorted above 100.
    3. Employees of BABA are not allowed to sell for 3 to 6 months, so they short and give the stock.
    4. Yahoo owns lot of stock, time to sell short and deliver after a while.
    5. Derivatives bought and sold to square their position.
    6. Year end window dressing, some folks have losses in other stocks, and will BABA to recover some losses.
    7. Hedge funds can borrow stock from mutual funds and sell short and then deliver.

    Stocks move because of story, and you can tell your tomorrow.
