Hey Matt—

I’m sure there’s an answer to this already so let me apologize in advance, but have you shared a TradeStation workspace for the trend-following stuff yet? If so, where can I get that??

Posted by matt on 26th of Mar 2020 at 03:57 pm

I'd say around 254.  My Tradestation is currently locked up - that 50 point move in the market caused it to freeze - too much tick data coming at once, TS freezes.  I'm sure it will unfreeze once TS catches up.

but otherwise eyeballing the charts looks around 254 - 254.5

HK impressive.  They are not letting any foreigners in and shutdown their borders once a couple of cases were reported.  They dealt with SARS back in the day so they were much better prepared than us.  I was shocked to see that Mardis Gras still went down.  That's not good.

I am a buyer of gold and especially silver at any price! I thought i would have to wait many more years before the fed went all in with {Unlimited QE} {ZIRP infinity} {Pandemic Purchase Programs} {Buying Corporate Bonds} {$6 trillion Dollar Bailouts}. This current world situation just forced the inevitable to the forefront. Thank god that the gold and silver community has a complete playbook for this exact economic scenario!

$NYMO approaching down trend line.  Bearesh div of SPX to Lower highs on $Nymo consistently occurred before market pull backs in 2019/2020.  

Tom McCellan wrote an article in Jan 2020 regarding watching the declining lower highs trend line as bearesh.  $Nymo is now approaching the TL. If it breaks through could be bullish

Posted by pmahoney on 25th of Mar 2020 at 01:04 am

Does the COVID test even need FDA approval???

https://www.biomedomics.com/latest-fda-guidance-allows-distribution-of-sars-cov-2-serology-tests-for-diagnostic-use/

March 16, the FDA updated its “Policy for Diagnostic Tests for Coronavirus Disease-2019 during the Public Health Emergency” document. https://www.fda.gov/media/135659/download

As a result, BioMedomics will be able to distribute our COVID-19 IgM-IgG Antibody Rapid Test to any licensed healthcare practitioner in the United States for diagnostic use starting on March 17, 2020.

From BioMetrics quote request page  (they can't keep up with demand)

NOTE: Due to high demand and the need to fulfill existing orders, BioMedomics is temporarily halting new orders for COVID-19 tests. Our company will continue to fill all existing orders, and explore new ways to source materials and expand capacity to meet the growing demand for our tests. We are committed to doing our part to battle COVID-19.

The winner will be the company with the best supply chain.

May fill the gap tomorrow am before the next up move or if the stimulus bill is not passed - could see a deeper move down.   Or a deal is done before the open and see how the market reacts to it (sell the news or buy the news), kind of like a Fed day.

Posted by mdgfain on 24th of Mar 2020 at 06:05 pm

The irony is that my most profitable trade of the day was on TQQQ April 17 $81 calls that I had stubbornly held onto and added to over the past few weeks. They had dropped to 0.01 and I was able to catch a bounce to 0.28 today. I know that sounds crazy, since TQQQ closed at 43.56, but it worked. It worked for me because I felt strongly that it would bounce before 4/17 and refused to sell for less than 0.15.  MATT and STEVE helped time my final sale. Sure, if I had held and it pops again tomorrow, I left plenty of money on the table, but as they say, pigs get slaughtered! Sometimes luck and persistence with a plan is better than skill!

LNC.  up 31% today.   Was my big trade of the day.   Bought in  yesterday, as this great company was thrown out with the bath water.  The liquidation value of this stock in around $30/share.  Price dislocations create huge opportunities.   Also was a good day to unload a couple of turds at break even.  

BPSPX follow up

Posted by matt on 24th of Mar 2020 at 05:09 pm

$BPSPX - Chart Link that played out well, last night I said you had the big trend short trade, and the two whipsaw buy and sell signals and the next one would be decent, that triggered basically on the open so that played. Nice that it updates intra day vs after the close

You can see the times in the past when you had a trend move then two back to backwhipsaws - highlighted those in yellow. 

so whenever I get two whips in a row, then I knew to take the next one

Was this one of those

Posted by mdgfain on 24th of Mar 2020 at 04:22 pm

Was this one of those “rip your face off” bear market rallies you sometimes refer to?  I guess so, best day since 1933!  

The question remains, “Will you still love me tomorrow?” It ended right on the last high. I’m equally hedged both ways, and will not be surprised if the market drifts back down to -3100 then rallies when Congress finally seals the deal. That is, unless this is a “ buy the rumor, sell the news” sort of deal.  

Thanks again to you and Steve, I made over 5k today, and almost doubled my play money since this drop started!
