    Bid now $17.53 and I'm closing the get here. Given the way it has opened the last couple of sessions I'd rather take the money and sit on the sidelines than hold it overnight...

    Okay...3 time in...this time at $17.46 as yet again the bid gets shoved down into the sub .50 area. Bid now $17.47. This thing is being churned like crazy...

    Not sure my first comment took (yahoo doing what yahoo does) so....Closed the earlier get for the usual +10 then went back in at the ~$17.50 line on the post FOMC yankie. This thing is being yanked all over the place...

    Bid $0.769. If there's any truth to gap theory, especially as applied to this equity, I'd say the bid is well on the way to closing the Aug 10 upside gap that opened from ~$0.75 to ~$0.82. Volume is heavy on the day, which isn't surprising because traders watching the slo-mo walk-down won't want to watch gains from the low $0.70's disappear and will be reacting accordingly.....bid now $0.7676 and being hammered....

    Bid heading for the 30 day downtrend line I've had on my chart. First touch on that line is the July 23 ~$18.50 area. Second touch is the ~July 30 ~$18.18 line. Draw it thru to today and you'll see it sits at just a bit north of $17.45 right now. Let's see if the bid at least bounces here....bid now $17.49 after pulsing to .46. Close enough for this pulse to be considered the beginnings of a bounce. If the bid tracks that line then I look for it to end the day at just north of .40. Which basically carries it ~50% back from the recent bounce off of the ~$17.05 area....bid now $17.50...

    Bid $17.47 I went in too soon (again). Here comes sub $17.50. It's yet another one of those days where the buy side just sits and watches...down ~1.2%. Remember...when Master takes Pooch on a downside walk he always goes for the ~2% line....lets see if past is predictive or not...

    Bid $17.54. I'm going back in on the long side. Just trading the chug and churn that never seems to end with this equity....a veritable ATM it is....

    Mturner: I don't know from "manipulation" but all you can do is work and react off what the market does....not what you'd like or expect it "should" do. I waste little time squealing about what it does...that's pointless....just anticipate and react is all one can do in this game. Errrrr....this is the trading perspective. A different, though similar, perspective is important when "investing." Whatever that means to you....

    Bid now $17.63.

    One: Nah....well....maybe the RETAIL shorts are worried. Regardless, I expect the professional who's been executing and using the short side tactic has long since closed their position. This is not to say the pro's have flipped to the "light side." They're probably standing by waiting on a buy side set-up to truly occur. The retail types though...well...my observation is they always pile on at the last minute, all because they never see a top/bottom forming. This, by the way, is an "agnostic" statement. Much the same can be said of the retail bull when an equity is topping out. In any case if you think the postings of such folk amount to anything at all for the pps performance day to day....well....I've a bridge to Brooklyn to sell ya! ;-) It's all just the chattering classes squeaking from the on-looking center field cheap seats. They matter not at all.

    Now back to the game. Bid $0.81 in PM....catching some action but it looks like continual churn. Let's see how it plays today...

  • highlowsel by highlowsel Aug 19, 2015 8:18 AM Flag

    My WAG is another session of sideways chug and churn by the machines and such. It'll probably be that way through tomorrow, too. I maintain my thesis that we've seen bottom already...but this in no way means there's a moonshot ahead. There's too much FUD and drag on the equity for that. So I expect this machine heaven of chug and churn will continue apace, albeit with a slight upside bias. . Let's see what actually happens. Bid now $0.808

    And once again Master is walking the Pooch back south. Looks like the set-up is a return to the magnet that is the ~$17.50 area. TA indicates it's well oversold, but there's absolutely zero upside impetus in this thing right now....it's floundering and flopping around like the Pooch has a bone in his throat. It is what it is.

    Bid $17.68. THe makret is working it in keeping south of .70. Masters back. He's stacking the ask to the sky and running all the action inbetween the bid or smacking the bid silly. Might was well turn the machines off where this one is concerned. It's going nowhere fast today....

    Dead? Volume is indicative of this. Errrr....that's to the extent one can consider +30M in volume at this point in the day as being "dead." ;-)

    Grabbed a tranche just south of .70 on the yank down from ~.90. Figured I wouldn't get my original bid at the ~.60 line. Now watch it crater to the .50's....

    Bid $17.68. Impressive walk-back from ~.90. And I'm not at all surprised by this.

    Nord: Well I was willing to contemplate a possible surprise when the bid hit ~$17.90....but nope....Master must have taken the reins back from the nephew because in the last hour or so he's yanked and walked the Pooch from there straight back to ~$17.70. In effect the action indicates nothing has changed. Pooch is still a churn darling....bid $17.71 but being sat on by a large show on the ask.....with most of the action hitting in-between the spread.

  • highlowsel by highlowsel Aug 18, 2015 9:34 AM Flag

    Looks like another session like the last 5 or so. Basically sideways churn. It'll probably stay like this for the next several sessions...meanwhile resistance remains the ~$0.85 line. But the session has only just started. Let's see what actually happens. Bid now $0.8102. Yah gotta luv the machines playing the hundreth's for churn transactional dollars, eh? Good money if'n you can get it.

    Hmmmm....wonder if Master's nephew is gonna do what he/she did yesterday? Start the Pooch off with a goodly yank to the downside followed by a lollygag allowance to the upside? Me thinks I'll run down around the ~.60 line and wave another low-ball bid like yesterday. Hey...nuthin' ventured...nuthin' gained?

    Let's see how it goes...
