    Marine: Yah..almost....but the news out of C here in AH's might provide the machines an opportunity for more mischief tomorrow. C just had one of those "DOH!" earnings restatement "misses."

    Da machines are trying real hard to line Poochie up at $17. But though that ~$17.15 to ~$17.20 zone is still a swamp I've the feeling the action is all window-dressing setting up more upside.....but for now the bid is being kept at....$16.99/17. (Opt's exp perhaps?)

    Teton: Yesterday morning Huck and I were conversing, and I made mention of my WAG regarding BAC and any immediate upside based on Huck's $17.40 comment. I think it can be repeated soooo...

    "For now, presuming this surge holds up...I'll be happy seeing the bid getting north of that swamp zone of ~$17.15 to $17.20. After that the set-up would be a test of your ~$17.40...but more to the point (for me)...I've a downtrend line I've kept on my chart that starts back on March 21 when the bid was just under $18....note the second "touch" on that line is the early Oct "bounce to" point of ~$17.40 before it rolled back down post-earnings. The $17.40 area would be not only a double top test over the last 30 days but it would be a set-up test of breaking that downtrend line which currently sits at.....~$17.35. So...that ~$17.40 zone/area is shaping up to be a big test area...."

    So basically the trading may be best proscribed by ~$17 to ~$17.15 until/unless that above mentioned swamp zone gets stomped thru....the bid's currently at $17.09 so the best of all worlds would be to get thru it today...but most likely, and hopefully, by end of tomorrows session? All just my 2pennies worth...so take if for what it's worth. Let's see how the market actually values the situation...

  • Say goodbye to the $16's? If the HFT/Algo/machines decree it so I expect it will be so. ;-) Bid now $17.04

    Boing boing boing....the bid keeps being churned back-n-forth from ~$16.85 to ~$16.94. I'm getting the distinct impression it's being set up for a jaunt north of $17....but right now the machines are working a profitable groove in that intraday channel......once they've squeezed all they can out of it I suspect they'll float it higher....just a WAG, though....let' see what actually happens. Bid $16.94 (again).

    Huck: Yup. But the upside won't be easy, pretty or quick. The chug and churn teams will assure that it won't be. Right now they're grinding the bid down.....looks like the bid is setting up to go back south of .90. Errr...it just broke to .89. The never changing tell in the sell side tactical game is the ever present illusion that the ask is fading under continual pressure...yet it refills and refills and refills more until the....bid drops. . It just sagged again to .85. And the ask is still overhanging the bid doing the same as just stated.....they've now pretty much closed yesterdays 2pm to close upside gap. So I've re-opened a trading tranche here at .85. Watch the ask, though....my entry doesn't mean the downside push is over...not by any stretch of the imagination....let's see what happens next..

    Market weakness is probably due to the perception and FUD associated with the Fed's finally halting QE. This actually plays to the strengths of the financial sector (again, perception-wise) as increases in interest rates benefit them, etc., etc.. It's probably why BAC surged yesterday. But this is all just my WAG. I could be wrong. Meanwhile maybe today is the day we start seeing $17 in our rear-view mirror? And not because the bid backs up? ;-)

    Let's see how it plays...

    Codi: Yah...I should'a stuck with my gut accessment from session opening as (for once) it looks to have proven prescient. In any case how many shares? Hmmm....well...you're right I don't like to say, exactly....that's just me...but Ilet's just say the size is in the 5 figures usually....I usually based my transaction size by the character of the average intraday of an equity. In other words I like to be able to get in/out without difficulty and without roiling the bid. Certainly BAC's intraday allows for the average size I go with for it....

    Meanwhile.....ding DING! Bid ends session at...$17. Sets tomorrow up nicely me thinks...

    Bid now $16.95. Okay...got luck with the "get." So in the interest of letting a winning pony run I'm following along behind the bid with a stop...now just under .90 so's I've got my +10pennies locked in and a bit more...run pony ruuuuuunnnnnnnn! ;-)

    highlowsel highlowsel Oct 29, 2014 11:47 AM Flag

    POW! Bid $16.78 and collapsing further....the sell side keeps hitting the bid with +1M share "bursts" (on the 2 minute timescale). All head-faking via the illusion of the ask fading.....So the pulse up was definitely a false start given this walk-down reset. I guess the machines weren't getting a profitable churn with the micro-pennies so they decided to loosen the game up a bit? ;-)

    TA is signaling well oversold here so I'm in for a trade just looking for +10pennies if I can get it....

    Bid being walked back down. Now $16.82 with all the usual sell side tactics being used. Clearly the earlier pop, which has now been mostly erased, was a tease....back to the ask fading fading fading (while being continuously hit) until...the bid fails.....I suspect when the bid actually does turn it'll do so quickly...much like the last several sessions...but for now....it's a chug and churn tease fest.....let's see if $16.80 holds....bid now setting up to collapse to it....

    PM last sale $1.65. Slooooowly it starts to recover. Let's see if it (eventually) gets to my target area.... ;-)

  • highlowsel by highlowsel Oct 28, 2014 3:17 PM Flag

    There's a even chance Master will let Poochie close nearer (than further) to $16.80? If it can get close, near or above that line it puts the ~$17.20 area back on the table....that being a level it approximately hit 3 times from Sept 20 to Sept 25 before going on a slide that culiminated in that earnings pps crumpling....

    But I don't want to get ahead of meself....let's see what Master actually does....

    For what it's worth I think....yes? Meanwhile I'd like to see BAC bust a move to the $16.80's....but what're the odds that happens (today) what with the bid at.....$16.70 and ~2 hours left in the session?

    See...see...I told you...bid !16.67! But since I've a fair degree of confidence that the bid will hit $17 (soon enough though not today) I grabbed a tranche at this line targeting my "out" at +$17. Just a trade. Bid now $16.69. Come on Master...let da Pooch off your short leash will ya?! ;-)
