... I will not be airing my views on anyone's longs or shorts anytime soon. The share price fell after both my posts last week and I need all the help I can get..
The road to guru-ship is strewn with thorns...... just ask bracke! :-)
|Ianwwwhite and Bracke... Agreed.By the way.... I will not be airing my views on anyone's longs or shorts anytime soon. The share price fell after both my posts last week and I need all the help I can get....Good luck all to all holders and keep up the good work. This board is one of the better ones, that's for sure. Thanks.|
Nothing wrong with your posts, or indeed those of any of the other AHT regulars... it's what makes this thread great, informative, educational, and amusing.
I would suggest that if newcomers do not find this to their liking they try one of the other AHT threads. Last time I looked these threads were dormant, so they will find little to disagree with! :-)
|Good day kilgallp
Yes I agree some of the TA can be obscure/confusing but you can always google which will clear some of the 'fog'.
"success with your shorts"
Indeed!!! All of 1.73 points. It was a poor trade taken in haste without applying the rules. I have a 'thing' with this share which over rides the system I normally apply to trades. It will be the last time I trade AHT without applying the 'rules'.|
|Ps. I believe you had some success with your shorts, well done!|
|Always enjoy your posts Bracke....even if I sometimes don't understand them!|
|Those who do not like my posts; I appreciate there will be some; have a simple remedy - Filter Me!!
If you think some of my posts are worth reading....then you just have to take the rough with the smooth.|
|Go ahead!.......two posts in as many days and neither contributing anything.DD|
|can we keep the comments here to AHT please -|
|Thanks Bracke, appreciate your feedback..........starting to dabble with short term trades via spreadbet account, thus trying to understand a bit more TA.Also IMO it seems to make sense (leveraged and tax free) to use the account for some longer term holds as well, particularly if the company in question has no dividend and I would have happily bought some shares anyway.DD|
|Good day ian
uppompeii has numerous reservations but he does receive counselling and medication to control them.
My Elite Guru status remains intact but only just (see post 53068). Friday's drop has saved my blushes not to mention my discomfort. Provided I can get to the end of the year without major mishap the suspension will have run its course.
I am very tempted to go long especially as there is the new gap to fill.
And after all the volatility the DOW and S&P still finish the day up!!|
|Good day Disco
On my sbet chart it shows the low on the 4th as 1203.6 and the low on the 9th as 1202.1. I appreciate that sbet charts are not the best. In this case it makes little difference.|
|URI finished up 2.7% and Dow turned positive by close, might provide a clue to Monday's opening action....|
It seems that uppompeii has some reservations about your status as an 'Elite' guru... :-)
I share your reservations about the current market.... perhaps someone has noticed that Emperor Trump's new clothes are not all they seem?
Nevertheless, have a great weekend everyone, who knows what opportunities next week will bring...|
|Good day ian
"your guru rating"
'Elite' Guru if you please.
Long...it had crossed my mind but is the market fall over or is there more to come? I will keep eye on the share price and may go long in the hope/expectation/probability of a profit on the basis of a rise following scintillating results.|
|Ps it bounced of MA100 (near enough) on the 4th.|
|Thanks Bracke23.6% fib 1621, MA50 1618 (today's low 1616).Can I ask why the 9th Nov why not the swing low on the 4th Nov? (as a complete novice and non elite guru I would have gone for the 4th - incorrectly obviously!).DD|
|That would need reinstatement of elite guru status before he is allowed to do that....|
Glad to hear that the bracke family fortunes have been restored, and your guru rating remains untarnished....
....also means we can now gently take the mickey out of you TA merchants again, without feeling guilty! :-)
Now, is it time for you to try a long?
|Good (being the operative word) day all
I have been out most of the day and had set my short trades on a limit order to breakeven which they nearly did. I made 1.73 points!!! Had I been at home I would have closed lower and been well in the money but no complaints.
Yes I know you are all astounded at my superior trading skills....so am I. There will be much feasting, drinking and merriment in the bracke household over the weekend. That 1.73 points will buy me a bottle of Lidl's third best red. I know there will be a headache the 'morrow but hang the expense you only live once.
FOR THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED IN CHARTS ONLY SO NO COMPLAINING FROM THE FUNDAMENTALISTS.
On a Daily chart apply Fibonacci Retracement with zero at the 15 February high and 100 at 09 November low. Look at the s/r and where the share price has bounced from. Need I say more.....no.|
I hope so too!
It will be interesting to see what the U.S. markets do later, the worst may not yet be over. A shakeout has long been overdue imho
|I do hope the guru is not missing h oportunity with the short. Or is a lower exit now awaited?|
|bracke is strangely quiet this morning, I assume he has gone to Harrods to stock up for the celebrations - it appears he is having a late Christmas! :-)
