You have to learn to tune the nonsense out.... The pure pumps or the pure dumps. Was wondering what happened to you today.... Posts were a dramatic change.
It sure does. But on a day like today, I have to think it was an arranged sale or late tape print for the days trading.
This is a tough one to make that kind of play. The moves are violent either way. Everyone has their comfort level. I would hate to miss a move with my core position. That's why those are locked up....
Personally bought 1/2 what I wanted to add today. Did not go down as much as I had hoped for. I will add the other half over the next week depending on the forward guidance. Automatic buy if it drops at the open and guiis what I expect. I can wait a month or so to sell those shares. Waited 3 months with the last scalp batch.
Nasdaq has both pre and post market transactions. Yes it is 1,000,000. Wondering if it was a buy that did not get posted in time during the normal course of trading. Either that or would have to have been pre-arranged.
Picked up 10k tpcs (additional shares) last week at 1.10. don't have a lot of insight there. Future looks bright. GTAT order in house. Much more of a pure spec play for me there. Up 40% so far (original shares at .70)
Bit the bullet today and added half what I wanted at 13.88 for HIMX. Either way I will add the other half soon. up or down.
I am with you on the longer term here. 34k shares at an avg of 2.54 when the profits from the scalp shares are included in the basis cost. The shares today were simply for scalping.
I'm patient.... If it hits it hits, if not, there is always tomorrow... This is only a play for some re-trace money. Core position is full. Days like today, there is usually another dip mid to late afternoon.
I am watching, no conviction on which way this will be taken this afternoon. There is always the reaction to earnings in the AM as well. A week ago I was thinking 13.35 prior to earnings... So I have moved my buy point up a bit.
Put an order in today... 13.72. can't believe they go through the day without taking out stops the day prior to earnings. Higher than I would have liked to place it, but take what they give you (or at least hope they give you)
