I love his data and get shots of it time to time when subs post charts or he gives out freebies, but unfortunately I'm not baller enough to sub his site. Not entirely sold on his smart/dumb money indicator, but it's something to throw in the basket in terms of overall "feel" of this shitfest. vomitRoll Eyes (Sarcastic)ZzZZz
yeah, i don't subscribe either and neither does the guy i talked to at the bbq. he has a few free-to-access sites where he gets his sentiment data, then inputs them manually into a very impressive spreadsheet. we hopped on a pc at the bbq and he showed me on google docs. LMAO

V and MA are boggling my mind. I took some off the table at $90.XX. Now I feel like a fool and should have let all of it ride.

V and MA continue to remain part of the 52-week high club High Five
And they just don't quit..... Still part of that awesome club Big Grin

Yup. Airlines are good trades, not investments.

Long NFLX at the 20sma. 30% short ratio the other day so they're covering in a hurry today. I figure if the trade doesn't work out, I'll send my shares back and get something else. Big Grin

The DJIA continues to carve out new highs.... when is the fed-induced euphoria going to stop??

Can't say I'm totally annoyed with it though. My longs in WMT PFE V and MA are printing new highs today.

Topping usually is violent process. I'm looking for a few daily VIX closes 12 and below, maybe 10 to even begin to "worry." Everyone and their sister is asking the same thing: "when is it going to stop?" "It has to "crash" sometime." As long as that mentality exists, it will plow right over the bears IMHO.

I stared a thread about playing the election and the risk trade is at a near perfect 1:1 with Obama into 2013. So far, it's tracked beautifully. I realize the rally off the 09 bottom is becoming weaker and the volume is a joke, but that doesn't stop Them from scraping every last penny off the floor before it gives out.

tbh, i don't really pay attention to annual returns w/ my options trading. i was taught to trade them to double/triple cost basis. Big Grin

i've been sit-on-hands most of this year and plan to do so until the hopium wears off. '10 and '11 were great for me. nod just need to jump in when it gets good again...Cool

with swing/day trades, i was making 15-20% of cost basis (making few k on 10-15k positions; holding a day or less). sometimes you're on and double/triple up (usually need the market to move 100-200 pts. in your direction), but a few times the market moves against you w/ option going to (near) zero and expiring worthless.
