w00t! I sold my palladium stash 4 days before the reversal.
Mostly luck, but maybe a tiny bit of skill? :) Thanks again for
bringing it to my attention, Matt!
I just remembered that I bought a few ounces of palladium a few
years ago and have been sitting on them since. Probably about time
to sell. Thanks for the reminder, Matt!
It's not just you. Reverting to the small view in SC has been
happening occasionally to me as well.
S&P, Dow, IWM putting in doji-like candles for the
Thanks for the GLD advice, everyone! Out with a nice profit.

Finally took profits on my SMH short. Thanks for the idea, Matt
Thanks for your ideas, cg9150! I agree that it's important to
have a system, and perhaps your system is something to experiment
with. To be honest, my own strategy has changed multiple times in
the past year, and will be changing once again tomorrow morning. If
anything, trading is one big experiment to see what works and what
doesn't. And each person has to find something that works for them.
For me, the strategies that Matt and Steve (and many of you, by
your posts) teach on this site are the ones that I've found work
better than the many many many things I've tried and failed at.
Sometimes I wish I would have not bothered experimenting with my
own stuff and just gone with what's been recommended here. But then
again, I've learned so much from my failures and experiments that I
think it'll make me a much better trader in the end. For now,
pullbacks with triggers within established trends seems to work
PHM still looks interesting:
Crazy reversal in BG (Bungee)! Glad I took profits on my short
before it bounced. Guess it lived up to its name, eh?
I really like IB. Low commissions, and I can't remember
the last time they didn't have shares to short (and I short
something most days, so that's important to me). TWS desktop
platform works fine, and never gives me issues. They are my main
broker. I should note that I mostly trade via IB through my
Multicharts software, so that removes a lot of the clunkiness for
BG had a nice breakdown this morning...
A couple of short ideas I'm watching: DOX, BG. (Btw,
thanks for the HUYA recommendation, Steve! That did really well for
New short ideas I'm watching: TSG, JBLU, POST. Trade at your own
A few long ideas: AVY, BBD, SIVB. I wouldn't hold any of these
for long, but we could get additional upside out of them.
MMS sure did well today. Thanks for the idea, Steve!
A few trade ideas. Most of these are recycled but re-drawn: WPM
& WDC (bullish), HRB & TSG (bearish), TLRY
A few short ideas: FB, KEYS, NBIX, VOD, UMPQ. As always, check
earnings and trade at your own risk!
Two either/or trades: NVDA, PHM. Again, not a whole ton to
choose from out there, since most patterns have already broken.
I'll post a few shorts in a couple of hours. Gotta take my kid to
scouts. (We're working on a video games unit. Way better than knot
Two long ideas, for those who dare: WELL, WHR. (I looked through
about 400 charts, and this is all I found. I'll post a few
either/or trades and shorts in a bit.)
