Just a few random things:

1.) Jamie has some good stuff going on at Wall St. Warrior. I like his analysis, and the way he trades.
2.) We crossed triple digits on FeedBlitz registrations - if you want to be notified of new posts via daily email, make sure to sign up on the middle right sidebar.
3.) Tale of the Tape turned me onto another funny blog, Hot Chicks with Douchebags...great for a daily laugh.

break on 2nd 15 min bar, BKE. Wow, it hit the extension fast...

Caught CCL, sold too soon. Missed AMD and a few others. Sigh.

Rarefactor said...

If someone could look at AMD, although I didn't get it right after the break of the 2nd 30 min bar, is that one of the types of patterns you look for? I went in about 15 cents higher after the long basing action at 24 on the 5 min view.

I missed one on CTXS, 6th 15 min or 3rd 30 min bar. Both look like they set up nicely.

Caught AMD, MDT long....sold and out.

Timid tape for longs today, shorts don't look all that promising either.

X, Jamie is my next interview at StockTickr. I agree his commentary is excellent.

I caught AMD today in my first x-style fib trade.

Took AMD on break of 4th bar. Pretty disappointed in the run but a profit is a profit.

And I will thank X for teaching me the way every day even days when I don't get a big one. What's the old saying - give a man a fish and feed him for a day - teach a man to fish and feed him for life. That ought to be your motto X.

SIM & CWTR were setting up, but after the open, i usually take it easy opex thursday & friday. the 1:30 downdraft was nice. i was watching SIM & CWTR and almost took them short

Rarefactor - what made you snag BKE... one glaring weakness of mine is im skiddish in first 1/2 hour.

qqqball: Just decided to since it seemed to setup fine, partly based on the tape. Since the 2nd bar was fairly narrow, I was prepared to get out if it decided to move past the high, but it just went straight down.
