Swings: over the 10 day MA first... then allow room for 20 day to hold - raise stops. Some will work, some won't. The winners, if you hold them, will pay for the losers.
Stocks of interest:
FSLR - daily chart.
/cl coast to coast -- range-chopper - went thru O/N high then low... classic.
despite GOOG, IBM strength
FB, NSC strong.
AD -400 confirm - hold the short /tf lower stop.
sold some DWA 17.26 -- target hit.
TGH - new 52-week high -- rainbow.
and IWM back to green. bam.
tried long/cl- broke TL --nowshort....
and it stopped me out -- amateur minute...
Once you commit to following the charts and your stops -- your fear and tension will go way down.
5 min charts: for big moves.
/cl -- broke pattern and dropped 130 ticks almost precisely to 50% fib retrace on 5 day / 5 min chart. Here's what it looked right right before the waterfall began. Tight consolidating triangle and then a b/o to the downside.
|/cl: triangle consolidation then plunge after b/o|
