We Squeezed The Shorts, Now What?

The market did the ole’ bad data, positive reaction thing, which according to my matrix is the most bullish market activity out there.

This led to a short squeeze across the board.  Which is nice.  Our first attempt out of the major balance area from ~ 1651 – 1641 is to the upside.  So far the profile is establishing a P-shape which tells me aggressive buying activity, likely shorts covering, drove price higher and now we’re balancing out.  The question on everyone’s mind now should be, will new buyers step in and initiate new longs?  Or was the action only temporary before we resume a path lower?

I can’t call it.  The market will.  Watch $ES 1659.50 as your barometer to the former, and 1652.50 for the latter.

I took some profits in my SNDK weekly options because, well, they expire tomorrow!  Awesome.  It’s kind of fun to put a timer on your trades, when you’re right.  That being said, I’m holding one runner into this attempted breakout.

I bought NBG.  This is probably dumb, but MANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN, I gave serious consideration to buying that last dip.  Danger: revenge trade.

What else, what else…ah yes, I sold a bit or RGLD exactly as planned.  You must love seeing a good plan play out for old Raul.

I sold OMEX, it looks like it might roll.

I booked ¼ of my $DDD long.  I’ll always take 5 percent home.

I lost money in the futures today, taking stupid trades.

Closing Thoughts

Try as you might, you can’t buy RGLD sub 50.  Even when the opportunity presents itself, you’ll take to twitter and declare the next plunge in GDX.

Sometimes you don’t understand the force behind a play, but you go along with it anyway.  Broadcasting stocks are strong, I bought NXST.

Heptics, get with it.  IMMR

Your eyes are important.  Take care to keep them healthy even if it means getting away from your monitor to see the doctor.  No eyesight = no trader.

Utilities might actually die for bit.  Frowny face AWK.

CREE might take some heat next week.  I’m ready for that.  I’m ready for lots of that.  CREE is offering the EASIEST way for our country to reduce its energy consumption.  They’re perfectly aligned with our administrations agenda, and they make lots of money.  Hard to value but I continue to see all analyst coverage as short sighted.

FB is bracketed.  If it comes unhinged and decimates investors again I will me very surprised.

INVN is another great story stock, I’ll tell you over a bonfire soon.

HAIN is quiet, HAIN is good.

DECK made a nice comeback today.  I like comeback stories.  I smell seller exhaustion.

ANGI has been my second most profitable stock of the year to trade.  Who is to say I’m wrong at this juncture?

OMEX needs to find some sunken ship booty, stat.

Enjoy your holiday weekend.  Electronic music invades Detroit in a big way every Memorial Weekend.  I may partake mostly for the people watching.  I’ll be in-and-out, preparing for to crush our shortened trading week come Tuesday.
