TLT- Correction Over? Earnings recession says No.
Trying to decide what to trade and the only thing that isn't too volatile is the TLT.
If I get in #$%$ goes down, GDX scares me. I was in UNP, but if market keeps dropping, I guess
that will go back down too.
Who was the one that lost about 25% of his capital being short SH and yesterday it was up!!
Talk about being out at the wrong time!!
I haven't been in rails in a while. Just got in today. Hope to sell UNP over $76 tomorrow
and we'll see. Almost bought XME today but was afraid.
So what's the reason for the tech. bounce. Dollar Drop ?
I bought CP today, sold and bought UNP. I'm not really sure which is the best.
I just compared the charts for the banks. C and BAC dropped the most. USB and JPM
were better. Maybe I should just trade the XLF. I would have gotten killed if I were in
C a month ago - down over 20% !!
I'm even afraid to trade SH , because the day I was in it the market was up. I almost
bought yesterday, but decided to buy C and Bac instead. By dumb luck I made the right
I bought C and a little BAC yesterday. I'm up nicely but wondering If I should sell at 7:00 or wait. Why did they turn around so quickly yesterday?
I have to admit I just bought yesterday because they're down so much. What's the main think they trade with.?
The market , Oil or Dollar?
I sold today at even and bought Citigroup at 38.77 and I'm up big. The market went back
up and PFE didn't anything, but go lower after I sold at 29.72
I saw $823 after hours earnings day. Good thing I sold at $791.
It dropped less than 100. Unbelievable!!!
Anyway , I took an $800. gain. If I had held till today, I would have an $800 loss!!
I bought Citigroup today at 38.77, hopefully it holds till tomorrow so I can sell.
I took a risk and bought Citigroup today at 38.77. Hope it stays up till tomorrow so I
can sell !! Thinking of buying SH as insurance!!
You bet I would have, but I couldn't do another daytrade! I watched it go to 823 and down to 788,
back up to 798 and end of today to 765. I'm so happy I sold at 791., could have been worse.
SPY down. XLU up!! I wasn't in either. The day I was short the market was up!!
I made a nice trade . Bought GOOG at $750 last night 3:55 before earnings and sold (because I couldn't
sell last night) , I sold premarket for $791.
Then I bought PFE at 29.70 and will sell tomorrow. Hopefully it goes back up to at least today's high- 30.34..
You did great!! I bought 3:55 yesterday, but unfortunately I had to wait till this morning to sell at . $791 .
I'm glad I didn't get greedy!!
So what are you in now?
Thank god I sold premarket at 791.00 !! I can't F-ng believe how much it dropped from $823
yesterday about this time till now!!! At least I made over $800. I bought PFE pre-market
at 29.70 and I'm up about $300 now. Not a bad day for today's market!! Just dumb luck I guess.,
and I didn't get too greedy and wait for GOOG to go to $800 like I expected!!
I bought premarket at 29.70. Hope it holds till tomorrow!! I can't believe how much CELG is down. Cramer
says it shouldn't be down so much, but PFE is cheaper,. Glad I didn't buy CELG!!
Three different buys for 1K each at 789 after hours!! Somebody with money thinks it's going higher ! It dropped to 188 before and then it went back to 198.
Will this go up a few days like Facebook ? I bought at 750.00 right before 4:00 pm.
I got in GDX today. I haven't traded gold in over a year. Lost a lot. Do you just watch dollar ? or something
The seasonal trend for stocks is positive until May though going back to 1950 the gains are just marginal in February. Going back over twenty years there have been January declines of over 5% in 2000, 2008 and 2008. In these three years stocks declined from 2-3.5% in February. The seasonal chart also shows that the S&P 500 typically top out in the first week of February and then is often under pressure for the rest of the month.
