Did you see all the discounts at the Dept. stores?
Is that what they mean by commodities are in a deflationary cycle?
Trader’s think gold is going to get to $900?
Did GS really say Oil is going to $80? They said it was going to $200, once.
Is Goldman Sachs an investment bank or more like the National Enquirer Rag Paper.
We’ll at least GS is saying oil going to $25–
Here’s my take on RTH, which because of WMT always messes with my best laid plans.
I think You should try to short at 77, with a 79 stop loss. Or short at 79 with an 81 stop loss.
Eventually RTH will be in the 60′s
INDU-monthly chart — index chart category
AU Feb 30 Put, try to get that for 4.00
I think NTES will climb higher. It’s at RSI 63, and that’s just a bad reading to try and short something. I think NTES keeps going higher until the RSI is at 69, so NTES price could get to the 23-25 range before there’s a good short sell signal, namely RSI 69.0
These are all my winning trades
