Choppy Morning

This post is really a test. I'm working on getting a new link up for the stock symbols.

So far, the only thinks I have working are longs in CMI and TNH. The rest of my morning has been a bit of a chopfest. But I guess if you take a look at the tight range we've been in since the open that kind of makes sense.

UPDATE: The symbol links now work. That's good news. The bad news is that I got smoked.

I'm bringing down mad loot in this market, it feels like a form of insanity.

mdawsz,

Good for you! You'll need the money for the hospital bills once Ducati finds you.

I'm a little lost myself right now. Chop chop chop...

When I had a turd finger (i.e. opposite the midas touch) in August I slowed the trading down and took smaller positions to regain confidence. It's a thought.

Dinosaur Trader said...

Yeah, probably need to take the foot off the gas pedal again. I think I do better in volatile environments. When things are slowly going up I'm just too impatient and jumpy.

It's fucked up, but I like extreme panic and fear.

Hey DT. Check out CAF. Very strong swing candidate. I posted a chart on my blog. should work out to be a big winner.

DT, maybe you need to focus on bringing in the yes when you feel the no.

Dinosaur Trader said...

Stewie,

Thanks a lot, I'll check it out. Looks like I may get stopped out of my NMX swing trade at around breakeven.

Wallstreak is finicky, eh?

mdawsz,

Seriously, that's all there is to it.

Bring the yes to the no.

I'm glad you like the Eckhart, I'll post some more tonight.

I had to watch it three times to figure it out.

BTW, what would you say to me if I told you the chart of SWC doesn't look so bad for some upside.

Dinosaur Trader said...

mdawsz,

Yeah, reluctantly, I'd agree. Volume seems to be increasing on the up days.

ET is like that. Simple, but dense.

How did you get the stock symbols to link out DT. Did you install new software, or are you doing it the slow way by manualing inputting the links?

High Probability Trader said...

I think I found it, SmartLink right?

Dinosaur Trader said...

Yup, you got it!
