    CHGG double top. Not sure why this is an $8 stock. Pumped by The Street & CNBC imo.

    AMD made a new 4 year high since this post @9.22 (originally was my pick in the mid-twos back in April)

    On the way to 10.25 in the short to mid-term

    I'm in GLD monthly Feb $103p with a cost basis of $0.81ish. Looking to sell almost half at around $105 and then another half around $101. Will hold the remainder until low to mid $90s which should be hit in Jan.

    that's pretty impressive, Rich

    i know you've been rocking it out with AMD since pretty much the very beginning of the ascend higher ... very cool

    although honestly coming from you it's actually not that much of a surprise to me since since i have always remembered you being on top of these from the beginning from waaaaaaaaay back on our days on HSM :D

    good stuff!

    CBIO cracked. People totally read their news wrong. CBIO may have gotten all the rights to whatever unproven drug they got from Wyeth (subsidiary of Pfizer) but will be paying out the ying yang not only to move it forward but also in future royalties. The real clue to the "end game" was that if CBIO actually does produce anything from it they only have to pay $17M lol. Oh the drama.

    edited for spelling Wyeth :)

    This was a hot runner yesterday.

    I'm short, well on the side anyway. Retirement 100% cash Wednesday. Been a nice run and time for some form of consolidation before we blow up to a 23000 dow lol.

    This pull has been orderly so far with AAPL breakeven... still got room to go down before EOD

    Update : Got kicked out of SPY puts bought 0.90 Sold 1.20
    Bought AAPL puts 23 dec 116$ @ 1.06 for EOD move.

    Edit : Sold AAPL puts at a loss 1.01$. I am suprised it never went lower.

    might wanna keep watch on OVAS - bargain basement prices and looks like it might be coming up from bottom.

    The best companies to swing trade have extremely high trade volume. High volume stocks are whales - the biggest companies on Wall Street.
