Let's see if I'm reading this right...opened initial position. Will add if it follows thru today.


Chickened out on the position sizing for MDCO as it gained "too much" (what do I know) in one day! urgghhhh. Don't know much about the company (who cares right?)



Markets still looks like it wants to chug along! It ain't dropping till it drops...why do i keep on thinking it is like musical chairs ? Self sabotage at its finest.


Waiting to re-load...

Played with this puppy and was surprised it popped! Or shouldn't I have?


Wasn't a filter...just happened to see a big candle dwarf the 3 candles prior (is there a name or script for that?) and I thought it was interesting. 49% gain on the Jan 100s

I was looking at candles as I got curious after reading this thread.

And I have zero clue about candles period. Just the basic idea.

What you see there is a doji candlestick after a downtrend. Doji's are candles whose open and close are pretty much in the same spot. It reflects an even tug-of-war between the bulls and the bears and often signifies a reversal in the trend.

Specific doji more strongly predict a trend change:

  • Gravestone doji
  • Dragonfly doji
  • Morning star doji
  • Evening star doji

    Thanks Xarlor! I admire your "clean" coding skills!

    I have to look up those patterns and try to incorporate them on the filters.

    Looks like I screwed up on VEEV and TEAM as I didn't check it was earnings....urgghhh….

    On happy thoughts..looks like SBUX is about to leave the station....
