I don't have anything to say about this except a guy on another forum called my attention to it yesterday because of the LVS breakout (same world as LVS, China gambling play) so I bought some today.

I don't own any of the stocks in this thread any longer and at the moment because of the slide in the NYMO/NYSI but I'd consider any of them to be in play again on the long side when market breadth once again triggers a bullish move if they did break out (AMZN, incidentally, you'll notice, did not) and particularly if they are resisting the current pullback and manage to hold their breakout lines through this market decline. Just summing up the thread, probably for the year. Good luck and good trading.

Notable stocks of day today: under the heading of when to sell (not that anyone has ever asked :rolleyes:) . BAC -- now, for the time being, would be good based solely on the stock's price action and to capture profits. But be aware the market is still positive, so if BAC rebounds it's back in play immediately. Just my two cents... :)

And now let's take a look around the sector. Ah... -- Citigroup, not a great looking candle there. So maybe capture its profits too, courtesy of the sector weakness exhibited by BAC.

Good luck and good trading.

Besides NFLX, which is truly the most spectacular gainer in this thread, continued follow-through breakouts this week:

Appropriate stops. The market rally is getting long in the tooth.

Good luck and good trading.

Two leaders are getting clobbered today. I also take this as a warning read for the general market.

DDD up 45 percent from the November NYSI buy, 5.6 percent from the Jan NYSI buy and 24 percent since the first post here.

SSYS up 17.6 percent from the Nov NYSI buy, down 3.9 percent from the Jan NYSI buy and up 3.2 percent from the first post here.

http://stockcharts.c...59405972966.png

These are sells. Actually, SSYS was a sell three days ago at 86 and change on its own price action (see the support violation on the chart) but let's not split hairs. ;)

Good luck and good trading.
