Aug 6 - Mon. "Platoon"

Just watched the movie Platoon for the first time in my life, crazy I've missed out on a classic like this for so long. I related it to trading because sometimes classic set ups can be right in front of your eyes and you've never seen them. Till one day it dawns on you, its a classic winning set up. The old saying if its not broke don't fix it.

few stocks I"m watching this week KCG, LNKD, INVN, SEED, ACTG.

LNKD - prolly #1 short at 110+
ACTG - I like the long soon, did catch some defenses, but also has a ton of overhead, may still have some lows in it.
INVN - long bias as it bull flag broke out.
INCY - watching for a long.
