Oct 24 - Mon. "Faster, Smarter, or Cheat"
STX - on watch for a parabolic short, I'll be looking to short 1/3rd size at first resistance, then 2/3rd size at 17, stock is trying to gap fill, but I think these levels are worth possible short entries, but a weak open could bring a decent long play initially, so watch how it opens as well. (I have not played this stock well yet so take this advice with a grain of salt).
APKT - 2 charts on this one, the first shows the stock is on a washout from 85 to 30 over the last 6 months, will it turn around period, I don't know, but long play is setting up like it did back in mid august from 40 to 52.5 in a few weeks. Second chart shows a possible double bottom from a washout back at the beginnning of the month where it bottomed at 32 to 27, I'm assuming somewhere in this area it will reverse trends, flashes below 30, i will play long.
KOS - I think we are due for a pullback on the SPY to 118ish area, I think it is over due, if/when that happens alot of these stocks that are getting overextened now will pullback and we can make a buck. This stock is getting toppy, whats the difference between a bull flag and a top, slightly different is the trend the flag makes, look for toppy indicators.
OPEN - stock is due for a rip higher, chatter from GOOG buyout coming in as well, technically a bounce is in the making, news could be the difference to push or kill it.
SNDK - on short watch of the 50 fail, this may be related to STX.
SCSS - still looks like higher, but this is a parabolic that I'm looking to short, only on watch, no action just yet.
