I Love Bases

A Lesson On Long Strong Base:

I did a report in the  past about how much I love being able to trade a well formed base.  The report was highlighting LONG tight bases, they can be explosive. They stand out to me because in the past I have had such huge %-Gainers when stocks broke out of them.   Do they always work? No.   To be honest, I have entered some that also just bounced around and bored me to death, and some have even broken down due to bad earnings or an FDA rejection of their testing, etc .    The Idea is that you buy near the supporting lows, so if  it drops you get stopped out with small losses,.  If it breaks out higher, the upside has huge potential.


Let me show you some examples of trades that I worked on this site before it became a premium site.   With the Ebola scare, I noticed that many of the Ebola play stocks had formed good bases.  APT, LAKE were 2 that I bought at support in the bases.

Patiently Waiting

As mentioned in the past, there are times when the markets allow us to see clearly the direction they want to head in  for a sustained period of time, and at other times it's just not that clear.     Often times when the various markets are changing direction, price gets a little choppy.  Entering trades during that period can be frustrating too,  since  even good set ups may work for a day  or two , only to fail the next.  Unless you are a day trader , then that leads us to this conclusion for traders who want to buy & hold positions for a week or two - Sometimes it's a good time to be trading and at other times it's best to just try to be patient.

Futures are currently higher in the DJIA, SPX, and NASDAQ, is the pullback over?

Yesterday , I was looking for a deeper pullback


Yes, the futures are green, but is it just a bounce?  Notice what I wrote on  the following chart of the QQQ's...

Peace Of Mind

There are times in the markets when the next short term direction is a little hazy, though the longer term view seems fairly certain.  Lets face it, when one is invested , any uncertainty  can cause one to get anxious while holding positions, especially if there is any volatility. So what can be done to find peace Of Mind under such circumstances? Lets review the various markets and then answer that question.

QQQ- The 1st target in the Nasdaq was met  ( 5000) , and now a  drop is likely.


The Nasdaq has plenty of room to drop, even just to "test" the recent break out, but notice the SPX...
