    Another final hour underway

    by highlowsel 13 hours ago
    highlowsel highlowsel 12 hours ago Flag

    Master closes with Poochies nose on the .25 line. This sets up an interesting situation for tomorrow. Options exp juxtaposed against the completion of todays window dressing and final day in July. Should be interesting...I expect to see Master do a take-down on Poochie tomorrow (predicated on no news of merit on the overnight) just because he'll look to do a double bottom test from July 17. If he breaks that double-bottom then I expect to see a test of an older uptrend line I've maintained on my chart. A line dating from mid-Oct 2013 and which originates off the ~$13.65 line. The line ended today at ~$15.05. I expect it to be tested if the today's intraday continues apace. And if that happens it puts on the table a set-up of a (continuing p/b) to ~$14.70, which is about the bottom of the May 27 upside gap.....I'm not saying it'll do this categorically because with this Master/Poochie relationship anything is possible...but I like to pre-tune my setups according to TA metrics...and for now these are what I'm monitoring...

    WHAM. Closing minutes sell side action (sell on close) is HAMMERING the bid. Now .25 and being mugged to high heavent....I'll be surprised if this closes north of .25.

    No...a good day for judicious buying....in stair-step fashion. Which is what I'm doing. Recall me earlier comment about when Master goes on these sell side "jags" he typically takes Poochie to a ~2% down day? Well...with the bid at $15.27 guess what...that's ~2%. So Master is staying to predictable form. Poochies is resisting any further downside here, and it's end of July (officially), which makes tomorrow very interesting.....

    Gee....down ~2%. 2% off all-time highs. And this is the cause of all the chattering analytical types hyperbole and pontifications along the "we're all DOOMED" lines? Jeeezus give me a break......

    Bid .27. Master is playing the classic HAMMER and pause, then HAMMER SO MORE then pause tactical game. Looks like he's trying to get Poochies nose down around .20. Poochie ain't going there without a struggle though....let's see what happens into session close. Oh....also...something to consider..this is the last day in July....there's probably just a wee bit of window dressing going on (by the big boys/girls).

    You can't make money on markets

    by bigkahuna1333 15 hours ago
    highlowsel highlowsel 13 hours ago Flag

    Sure you can make money. It's just a question of divorcing any emotional involvement and play it cold by the TA set-up's. It's like playing poker. Some are good at it, sufficiently so to make a living. Others, not so much. But both are the same. Keep the emotional aspect neutral and play it strictly from the stand-point of the odds and the set-up's given to you. It's that simple. And that hard. Meanwhile Master is trying real hard to get that bid to .25 or below....bid now .27

  • And it looks like Master is bound and determined, with the bid at $15.30, to have Poochies nose be firmly under $15.30 by session close. The sell side is using ALL tactics to their advantage in whaling away at that bid. The wonder of this is the bid doesn't simply collapse but gives ground grudgingly. Me things Poochie is fighting back. Probably won't have much effect (the bid just dropped to .29 under continuing hammering), at least not today. Master is just too strong...aided and abetted by all the chattering head noises over a Dow now down over 270pts....bid now .30.

    Bid $15.32

    by highlowsel 16 hours ago
    highlowsel highlowsel 13 hours ago Flag

    Yah....I grabbed a trading tranche south of .30. Bid now .35 and maybe looking for a bit more but boy oh boy...it's a heavy lift trying to move the bid northward. It reminds me of trying to lift loosely bound 100lb bags of sand....

    Bid $15.32

    by highlowsel 16 hours ago
    highlowsel highlowsel 16 hours ago Flag

    Remember as a basic metric that whenever Master goes on these downside runs he typically takes Poochie down ~2%....right now down ~1.7% so there's further downside available....bid $15.31. all TA signals are saying well oversold here....but today those signals aren't working too well...

    Bid $15.32

    by highlowsel 16 hours ago
    highlowsel highlowsel 16 hours ago Flag

    Fragile, True: Bid now $15.30. Master is being relentless in shoving Poochie downwards. Poochie is now back at, and below, yesterdays low and probably heading lower....course the Dow is also off over 210pts, too...so that accounts for a lot of this downside movement....if .30 fails I expect Poochie to be shoved back into the $15.teens in "toot sweet" fashion....

  • highlowsel by highlowsel 16 hours ago Flag

    Master has been consistent. It's been almost a straight downward yank since yesterdaay afternoons high of ~$15.65....bid now $15.32 and being worked for a return to the .20's....it's all selling...

    Looks Like

    highlowsel highlowsel 17 hours ago Flag

    yup...did an initial break with the bid being shoved to ~$29.90. Well oversold at that line. Now trying to bounce...MU hasn't seen this level since about mid-June.....which ain't really all that long ago. So...it comes to this...there's a ~$29.50 to ~$30.50 gap from ~June 10 that just got (almost) closed. There may be a bounce. The metric I'm watching is an older uptrend line I've had on my chart since the April 17 ~$24 line. It sits, today, at ~$29.25...I'm watching to see if MU's bid gets walked down to test that line as support. Maybe not today but.....in any case Lucy is right now playing a sell side game...let's see if $30 holds as support. Bid now $30.05.

    Huck: Guess we'll see indeed. My first low-ball bid at .34 just got taken....and I've another down in the mid-.20's that very well might get hit if the intraday action Master is expressing continues apace. Generally speaking it's just a lousy day out there in the markets....and Master is using it to keep Poochie (again) shackled to the chain he got briefly off of yesterday.....it is what it is. Let's see where it goes from here..

    Okay anyone who's followed Masters intraday processes knows it's now coming...the upper .30's...bid now $15.40. Master is once more doing what Master always does....that is....applying continuing pressure on the bid shoving Poochies nose back into the dirt.

    PM last sale $94.07

    Current bid $92.57. Looks like the aforementioned "runs usually clump in three's before any p/b" is holding true....so far. No big deal...a bit of consolidation is a good thing here...just sets up the next bit of upside once general market nuttiness subsides.

    Yah...as you can probably see Master is beating Poochie with a stick as if the lack of a DoJ decision was all Poochies fault....which I guess it..is? In any case the Dow being off about 150pts ain't helping things....I'm actually kind'a hard-pressed in seeing much more downside....at least based on all the recent news which seems to be indicating there's movement decision-wise occurring. Somebody was driving that ~2.5M share spike in yesterday afternoons session...and it t'weren't retail....but regardless...I'm in no hurry....Poochie ain't about to be running around loose off the leash any time soon....

    Bid $15.44...

    PM bid $15.46. Master's got Poochie firmly back in the muzzled harness. I suspect a yank back into the high .30's is setting up. Think I'll go down "thar" and wave a low-ball bid just for grins....

  • Master says yesterday afternoon didn't happen. Forget it. YANK! Current bid $15.48....let's see how Poochie runs (or not) today....

    The volume on the Aug 21 $15.50 strike options (Calls) is over 23K. Looks like Master is trying to whoa, whoa, WHOA Poochie back to it?
