INFY finally came down and filled its gap and thus my limit order was triggered. Now long. Minor victory there knowing I didnt chase the stock and ended up getting in at very close to the low for the day.

fwiw
my interpretation of Livermore is that he would advise to stay away from options...I forget his exact words...something to the effect of, the allure of fast and or easy money. Also, letting one's profits run in a stock I suspect he would view differently than letting them run in an option..due to the limited time and the strike prices(how far out of or in the money) involved in options.

think we could get a gap down....spy trading under the 20 on the 1 hour for the last two days and looks to be flagging.Buy program came in early today only to sell off into close...copper looks week.. AAPL sold off and banks didn't participate into the bell ...who knows...put AMZN alerts on @188.47 and 185.58.... will watch AAPL pivots for bounces...586 on AAPL /fills gap/hits pivot/ just pierces the 50 and a 236 fib...one can hope...
oh and all you gold holders your screwd..kidding...well not really other than being under the 20/50/100/200 ma on the daily/hr/10 min. Near the top off a down ward channel and forming a bear flag....Other than that it looks strong...

...why do you always came down to Nick's café

banging the table on TXI... pending market conditions
33.30 is prime ...daily and 1 hour setting up... daily holding the 200/ trend-line support/relative strength/time count/divergance...you could even make a case for a inverted H&S with a retrace back to the neck line.Right shoulder is a little weak...and check for earnings date.... again dyod

earning Mar 28th

Thinking about grabbing some CLR and NOG. NOG doesnt look too hot, but the fundamentals for these Bakken Shale operating companies is great. NOG has been posting 58.1% profit margins. I like.
