Karenma,
Thank you for your reply. I am sorry about your personal situation, and hope it is resolved positively. I am new to self dircted investing, and have enjoyed the stockfetcher forum, and the stockfetcher service. I played with software and practice sites for a year, and for a half year have had a small online account. So far I have not given myself any reason to give up my mutual fund accounts.
The chart above was created with stockshare software. I happened upon it in the beginning, and I found myself coming back to it. The creators of it are students of this Tom OBrien, and some of its features reflect his ideas. The C of the first abc is where the A of the second abc would be located.

Karenma, first the blue dots:
This Swing overlay, as we have it in StockShareV2, was following the methods of swing trading that Tom O'Brien uses. StockShareV2 allows the user to view available swing points with a mouse click. Swings will be visually displayed immediately. The swing points are displayed as blue boxes while the colored lines reference previous highs or lows. The swing points are analyzed using a proprietary Algorithm to measure Breaks or Tests. The user can customize to a preferred test percentage.

Blue Box - The blue box can not be displayed until after the swing is made. A swing high needs a lower high or a swing low needs a higher low to follow before it can be displayed with a blue box. Breaks obviously can be shown since it is using data from the past.
A Swing High - This is when the highest recent price and the highest recent volume happen on the same day.
A Swing Low - This is when the lowest recent price and the highest recent volume happen on the same day.

Second, the twelve year chart,
To demonstrate previous cycles, you have to backup, kind of like taking a picture of a group to get everybody in.

Third, the fib numbers. The blue areas reflect something called confluence, and ABC patterns. The C of an ABC usually falls within the middle fib zone of numbers. January 95 was the beginning of the uptrend which ended in the beginning of 2000. The C was correctly predicted in the middle of the lower blue bar. Now, if Jan 03 is the A, and about now is the B, then the C should be somewhere within the upper blue band.

Fourth, I hope you were not referring to me as someone who posts, but does not think. You give the impression from this comment, and the "celebrity among us" post that you are contemptuous in nature. My sister's name is Karen, and she can be contemptuous at times. Maybe it's in the name.

The question is where would it fall back to. A fib ABC retracement would have the DOW fall back to between 9800 and 11500.

Thank you Niko and Max for your astute analysis. I am still learning, and of course the turn on the 18th was expected, and playable.

This is the countrywide chart. Note that it has been a very cyclic stock, with alot of ups and downs. There is almost nothing from the stock chart which would have predicted that this down would be the bit one in foresight, only hindsight.

The purchasing of puts has been pretty common, and predictable given the climb in the market this year, and in previous years. The question is where does it go from here.

Any comments. I know that niko is bearish, TRO, and niko only day trade and try and follow the market after it appears to have committed for the day, but for those of us who can not day trade probably the best thing is stand aside.

nikoschopen, You are a full time pro. You can afford to use tradestation, and know how to program it and stockfetcher. You have a bank account which allows you some latitude, and you have recently made 20 percent daytrading. You are a loner, and do not want to become distracted. Why would you want to learn anything new.
The horizontal lines are just reference lines, and can be removed. Background color can be changed, as well as many other features. I like Stockshare, lots of features, but compared to Tradestation, it is a low end program without programability.

This is a great reference on how to place charts into stockfetcher. I just wanted to see if it were possible.

BPEV may or may not be making another run, but no more or no less so than a more expensive stock.

So far no luck. It would be nice if stockfetcher forums were easier to post images on. It would not seem to cause a bandwith issue since the image would be coming from elsewhere, and a picture is worth a thousand words.

conyeuchua, how are you able to post an image. Your image location is
http://tickersense.typepad.com/ticker_sense/images/2007/06/25/bloggersentiment062507.jpg, but how did you get it to appear?
[image http://tickersense.typepad.com/ticker_sense/images/2007/06/25/bloggersentiment062507.jpg /image] does not seem to work.
