waited all day impatiently and then the triple top resolved -- almost stopped out -- and then I called the bottom to the tick... the pattern resolved.
There is no way to be profitable except to determine support/resistance and then trade when the patterns resolve at those levels -- using Market Signals to determine strength.
Attempting to buy weakness is disastrous as always.
Strong momo names are strong and that's what will work. The /gc also worked but it tends to break patterns -- run stops.
