200 dma on compx is just 7 points away.

...A declining spenglerian carnival of Colossaalism united with Inflation where the numbers one through 10 are forever banished as worthless arithmetical detritus from a bygone age... - Beardrech

Naturally we believe the govt numbers... and Boobus Americanus sleepwalks off the edge of the energy-crisis cliff clutching his shares of "Crisco", Yoohoo and GooGah munching on his Yum Yums and Ho Hos. Future historians will have a hell of a time figuring out what the hell Americanus neanderthalus was thinking and exactly what brought on his sudden demise... - Henny Penny

Well, good night everyone. I gotta go lube up for tomorrow's regular end-of-week Gold Slapdown and Stock Index Bear Punishment Rally Weekend Greenprint. ...Probably another Shock-and-Awe Gap-Up-Open and Wire-to-Wire Meltup Runaway Bull Charge Mo-Mo Spike to Fresh New All-Time Lifetime Highs, culminating in a 4:15 yelping scalded dog runoff with panic short-covering and legal not-held bad double fills due to fast market conditions, plus quote system freeze-ups and trading platform lock-outs along the way. *yawn* typical gov't Friday. - Shorty

Doc, don't let em get to you. Trading is the most frustrating thing we could choose to do. If some are to immature to be self-responsible for their own decisions I say ---- them. It's hard enough to press that button, knowing that the odds are against you and then to be criticized by your supporters. I was with you on those trades and until yesterday I wasn't burned. C'est La Vie. Yesterday they hit my stop loss to the penny and took me out of one of my longer term shorts. In addition to my spy scalp... ouch. What's done is done. you said something like that yesterday.

Coboy,

Yes, pattern daytrading rules apply to options, but only if you have a margin account. If you have a cash account, the pattern daytrading rules don't apply, but you are limited to trading with the cash available in your account per day.

If you have $5000 in your cash account, you can do 2 trades of $2500 per day or 5 trades of $1000, etc...

My broker is http://www.interactivebrokers.com, the best broker that I found for options for the price, which is only $1 per contract.

I hope this answered your question.

Doc,

I like your stooltrading beta so far. It's very helpful, especially the charts that are refreshable for us that don't have esignal or metastock.

I don't know of anyone who trades real money and judge other traders actions.

Those who trade real money, understand the emotions of the trader because they "have been there". They don't step on someone who is down. This is simple "dignity".

Those who judge, usually don't trade. They pretend they do.

Anyone else notice that QQQ whacked his head at 26.80 and is falling back now? It will be interesting to see if it can make it through later this a.m. or whether that would have been the time to start building a short pos on the pos.
Of course I'm caustic!

I agree with you totally, Blackbelt. Real traders have losses once in awhile. If you don't have discipline, set stops, and can afford a loss, you shouldn't be trading in the first place.

Indicators rule, cmaps are for guidance purposes only. Remember that, be like water.
