Yes, I agree BooDog. I am a bull trader for the most part. However, I just sold my holdings the other day for profit. Looking at the charts and trend it doesn't look like a good time to buy with the market topping out. So, I am playing the market down for time being and hope to get back in when the time is right.

You all could be right. I actually shorted NFLX yesterday, wasn't looking to good for me early today but I'm in the green now, hoping to get something out of it.

$VIX is picking up momentum, futures green. Thought we might have a better chance for a deeper dip. More volatility to keep us guessing.

I'm thinking your right. A pullback on SIRI is looking likely to me too. especially concidering earnings aren't for another month. Good stuff in that report though. I like that pic of the giant Oprah in it....much bigger than the other people in the pic, you think she had something to do with that???....geeze I don't like her.

anyone looked into LVLT? putting it on my pincher radar also. Seeing some dilution but thinking it may possibly have an itch of a chance of survival.

nice call Morpheus. I was looking for it to dip a bit lower before the bounce, especially with the market diving.

We'll see if this helps make the pinch or not. After hours was looking to lead into a dip into the .80's tomorrow before the news. ah closed at .975 +.016.

I had a "stop" sell set at 12.60.

I bought FAZ the other week at 12.50. When the share price went above 13.00 I set a "stop" sell at 12.60 to protect my original investment. If and when the share price hit 12.60, a market sell order would be placed automatically. This happened today and all my shares sold for 12.61.

There are various "order types" you can choose from when you buy or sell a stock. Here is a link to some basic descriptions:

appreciate the info SJU. it looks like a good strategy...if you buy a stock at 12.50 and if it goes above 13, you can set up stop at 13 and almost guarantee yourself 13 sell if it tries to dip below, it gets sold at 13 - sounds like good ploy to me

Yes, but there are a lot of small intricate details in each order type.

For example, in a regular stop order. The stop will becoame a market order at 13. In other words, it will sell at whatever the market price is at that time. It is posssible for the price to fall well below the 13 stop you have set and sell for less. The answer to that is a stop limit order. With this order you can set a stop for emample at 13.05 and you limit at 13.00. The stop will trigger at 13.05, but will only sell 13+.

There are a lot of scenarios and intricacies involved in each order type. It's best to read and educate yourself as much as possible.

ALL OUT OF SIRI MORPH??? ALLLL??? holy cow! i don't remember you being ALL out. So what's the potential Howard Stern news that will be coming out?? I'm guessing they are going to watch the charts just like we do and wait for a good dip in between here and earnings and then let the news out and watch SIRI FLY TO THE MOON!

take a look at DGZ, see the pinch setting up? There's a roll of the dice. see gold take a dip and then watch it shoot up to 1700 by the end of the year - sound like nuts? I was just browsing some charts looking for the right time to pull out before the next big dip on the indices. Certainly a flip of the coin right now imo. Like to see a couple weeks reset after we peak out.

happiness is...taking profit and then watch what you just sold drop...yea
as for Stern...it is up in the air at this point..SIRI says one thing and Stern says another..he is talking about just broadcasting from his home over internet on his own terms...that would hit SIRI hard for a short term and then it will recover and head higher...im looking to get into SIRI below 1.15 if possible..the market is weird at this juncture...im basically all cash and playing small inverse plays for now..I have more then met my goals for the entire year..and time is on my side for now ...remember my old saying.."When it comes to the market and making money, there is always enough time to loose your money"..im liking BISU after a big string of down days (4 in a row or more0 in the market...patience is critical and let the setups come to you..then go big or go home

My guess is that SIRI will dip down to about $1.08 maybe a little higher than that....we'll see.
