    Nope. Master blew right thru that line. Bid going to $15. It's a sell side party while everyone else gets set for the $14's.....again...

    Oh great.....Israel just launches a ground offensive in Gaza. I haven't seen this much global turmoil in some time. Clearly the market hasn't either...Dow now off 155pts and, of course, Master has again yanked Poochie...this time to $15.15. Buy side is show as large as I've seen today so they may be drawing a line here....let's see...

    Bid $15.18. Okay....I didn't expect the geopolitical nuttiness. Who did, eh? Makes one want to ask what's next? Master has been all about the YANK and release (for a small bounce) followed by another YANK to a lower line then release....again and again and again. It's all enough to drive (Tom F) nuts. Heh! But it is what it is. For me I've opened a trading tranche looking for a bounce somewhere in the final hour. Just want 10pennies and I'll call it good. If I don't get it that's okay...I'll hold and wait. BAC will turn at some point. But if I could call it every time....well....I certainly would not be posting here. Maybe from my own kingdom.....;-)

    Oh...to note....Master has had the tendency to show an ask that appears to fade. Indeed during that part of the "cycle" most of the action hits it. But the ask simply spins and refills over and over and over until.....the bid fails...when you stop seeing that spin action in the ask you'll know he's letting the leash out on Poochie....for how far and long....well....did I mention kingdom?

    Bid $15.19

    Bid $15.20. Looks like Masters intraday tactic is still fully engaged. Here come the $15.teens. Bid $15.19 and collapsing....

    First.....Wall Street is all about BS. That's its nature. You know this going in and you're ahead of the game. Next...now we're gonna hear from all the chattering classes from both sides of the aisle whipping themselves up into a frothy lather over what should be, could be or ought to be done regarding geopolitics. As if it were all a Hollywood movie where everything gets wrapped up in a nice bow and an American flag in an hour and a half. Hate to burst yer bubble but real world politics....hell real LIFE, ain't like that at all. So I advise getting yer head out of yer cinematic #$%$ and focus on the reality. It won't help the global situation since you're like me, a peon in all of it. Grist for the mill and all that. But at least you won't be blinded by propaganda inspired delusions....

    Oh...and MNKD? Bid now $9.26

    Tom: "of course the day trade retail clowns like you only exacerbate...."

    It's nice to see that idiots like you think I can actually influence events and intraday actions. Guess that must mean I'm telling you this from my own private island while minting my own currency, too, eh? HEH!

    Seriously....don't take my comments personal. It's clear you're getting twitchy from the ongoing development. Me I've been playing this game for far too long to indulge in emotional twitchiness. Along the way I learned to spread risk, and never put your "bank" on any one line or equity. BAC is what it is. You either play it. Watch it. Or get/stay out of the way. It's that simple.

    Bid $15.23 and trying to bounce. Let's see if it's another one of Masters pauses before yanking Poochie south of $15.20.

    By the way....if $15.20 breaks it puts $15 on the table for tomorrow....maybe even today depending on the final hour.

  • highlowsel by highlowsel Jul 17, 2014 2:48 PM Flag

    Well today has been a day of Master dancing with the sell side of the equation. Poochie ain't had a chance all day. Indeed just when you think "okay there ain't much more could occur..." potential geopolitical nuttiness sets the chattering classes and talking heads pontificating in a whipped up frothy lather of a frenzy. From all point on the compass BAC cannot get a break. Maybe someday we'll look back on this and say "wish I'd bought more then..." but right now it ain't all that funny, eh? So it goes.

    I'm a judicious buyer of BAC with any eye on the first half of 2015.

    Bid $9.52

    by highlowsel Jul 17, 2014 10:23 AM
    highlowsel highlowsel Jul 17, 2014 2:42 PM Flag

    Bid now $9.31. Sell side action indicates the bid could be sold into the mid .20's. Intraday TA has it well oversold here so it might bounce into close. If it closes at the low, and the current nuttiness geopolitically hasn't abated, it puts the $9.teens to ~$9 area on the table.

  • highlowsel by highlowsel Jul 17, 2014 12:02 PM Flag

    Master working hard today. Slam the bid, pause for bounce. Then slam the bid lower, pause for bounce and then.....well..you get the idea....bid now .23 and going for the teens...

    It is? It's assumed? Okay....I'll bite....what're the assumptions?

    Bid $15.42

    highlowsel highlowsel Jul 17, 2014 11:20 AM Flag

    Like Masters feint? So far he/she's staying true to form. Drive it down, relax and let Poochie think it can ramble back to the high .30's then YANK! Bid now $15.26 and being pushed lower. If $15.20 fails this puts the $15 line and a possible test of the May 27th upside gap on the table.....

  • highlowsel by highlowsel Jul 17, 2014 10:23 AM Flag

    The walk-down has picked up a bit of steam. If $9.50 doesn't hold....and right now on the 10 day chart that's the double bottom test setting up...then it puts the $9 to $9.25 zone back on the table...

    Codi: I went short a trial position in MU yesterday. Got a pleasant surprise on the overnight and closed it. Watching carefully. There's an axiom in this game....when all the good news in the world doesn't move the pps needle any further northward then watch for a short sided set-up....do the reverse logic for a long position.

    BAC is caught in all the FUD trap we all know about. This will not change until management and DOJ come to terms. It is what it is though I think if the $15.20's can hold thru all of the shyte then a buy side set-up is being signaled.

    DRYS? Hmmmm......on a 6 month chart it looks like it's double bottoming? The TA is signaling well oversold here below $3. Also it seems to be bouncing along a channel of ~$2.80 to ~$3.50. As long as your patient and don't expect a trader-fast return a pps south of $3 seems a good risk-reward area....

    Just some WAG thoughts. ;-)

    Samm: I'm seeing the Calls too. It's interesting....but watching the session action is keeping me on the sidelines. It's dominated by the tactical selling action....and it's a "masterful" performance, too. Watch it if you want an education in trading dynamics. They're taking the bid into the .20's if I'm reading it properly.....possibly into the $15.teens....which is where I'm waving a low-ball bid...

    Bid now $15.30 and being HAMMERED. Ooops...now .29

    Tigger: It doesn't matter. Can't play hardball with the Fed's. The only thing one can do is roll over and say "Thank you Master! Can I have another!?" So to speak. And right now Master is taking Poochie south. Bid $15.32 and heading into the .20's if the intraday action so far is any indication.....there's a Masterful sell side performance underway...

    You wait until you...don't? It is what it is. Currently day 4 of a sell side drift to the downside while the waiting continues.

    Don't know from $14.50 but playing hardball with the Fed's is akin to trying to playing hardball with a cop that's pulled you over for a traffic infraction. You know who's gonna win that one. In any case there's no upside in the pps for now.....though how much downside there may be is a function of how the market perceives the ball is being played. Right now the market perception is management is BEHIND the 8-ball rather than playing it. So to speak. Bid $15.37 and sinking...probably going back again into the high .20's initially...
