It has been raining non-stop all weekend.

I just finished my trading summary for 2004 income taxes.

What I found out was rather revealing.

When I started scalping and using a much shorter time horizon, taking nickles and dimes instead of $100 bills, my results improved dramatically.

Made 3x as much money in the latter half of the year, following this approach than I did in the first half.

Some excellent advice from The End over at B4 The Bell:

Stop thinking about whether 2005 will be an up year. I for one never heard of the 5 stat. until Oct of 2004. Now that everyone knows about it, does it make it null and void?. I don't know and neither does anyone else. Concentrate on the short term.

The End has a family to feed by his trading. He has no choice but to use extreme concentration, and follow the tape.

His famous words are: FOCUS!!!

"We don't know and neither do they." As a matter of fact you could pick a stock now and it could scream to high heaven and the market could just consolidate lower for months on end.

Did you buy AEOS in Jan. 2004. So, do you keep on buying? Looks like the cause is used up....

Anyway, don't you think there are a few worried...

"Current conditions: The signs are quite ominous. The market is giving off many signals of topping. And specific individual stocks that may offer opportunities look less in number and look even less attractive to a chartist. If one is not a chartist and does not like to depend on charts, then it should be noted that a clearly visible and tradable trend is absent on leading stocks. Consequently, buy levels are recommended at a new low level of perhaps 100-200 shares as a test-buy at a maximum, rather than a percentage of one's trading capital. The big money is not made on the first buy anyway. It is the subsequent pyramid buys that make the big money."

wndy; word !

I realized in November that almost every time I lost money, it was when I held something overnight; and got shanked by some unexpected gap-open or whatever. Whereas, every time I had made money, it was on something that I was in and out of in a matter of hours.

Can't trust the market....so I don't trust it :lol:

my motto now is: Flat at night...Sleep real tight! :D

I am once again payin' very close attention to the 750 tick Dow futures chart..my guess is that she finally rolls over this time and we head for 10,400..last week looked like a powerful reversal in many indexes, and there should be more work to do on the downside over the short term..

Here's a look at what the first week did to all the featured stocks showing up in the last 13 monthly newsletters at Canslim.net

On a weekly chart hardly a concern - yet...

Dow 4k tick chart also at critical point..need to get downside momo restablished, and next target should be just under 10,400..

On the other hand, if the Dow holds here and momo starts to turn back up, new highs could be seen if 10750 is cleared...

Bears need to kick some ass right here...

Another one which has totally ignored the drop in Chinese stocks and has been impervious to recent market weakness.

In fact, not too far away from new, all-time highs.....

Keep an eye on this one.

If the broad market is headed for a selloff, it would seem that these overpriced concept  stocks would get hammered ASAP.

Possible "Giraffe" breakout.

NTES cannot be touched for short. In fact I know a couple of (value-oriented) hedge funds in NYC shorted this one and were burned badly in 2003.

This stock has a very small float and the real large MMs are from China and
not shown on Yahoo's top institution holders. Those MMs have the stocks
purchases through thousands of small accounts and they are really controlled
by one or two big players. Those one or two big players always work with
the executive team to release good news/earnings or bad news/earnings to move stocks according to their position.

That's how the stock markets in SH is manipulated and now since SH is dead,
the gimmicks are played on NTES kind of stocks on New York market.

Just to share my knowledge with fellow stoolies.

this one
