NKE second day play

Looking at NKE this morning. Yesterday it was a bit out of control on the open but the stock got easier after it broke the 60 level. I’m gonna be using that as my inflection point; above 60 will keep a long bias, below it will try to keep a short bias. Looking for a sell off to the 58 … Read More

re: my day

I focused on RIMM on the Open as it was In Play after reporting yesterday.  I traded it on the short side once it dropped the 128 support level.  It was fairly tame and became weaker as the day progressed.  There seems to be support around 123.40. Traded NKE in the afternoon.  Didn’t catch the initial short below 60 but … Read More

Run Fast Jump High (NKE)

Trading NKE this am.  Below 62 will trade with a short bias if see selling.  Down a ton on very light volume- bounce?  The NKE specialist has a tendency to treat some orders unfairly.  But when NKE is in play it is a very good trading stock.  I have attached the chart of NKE below for some help.  Good luck! … Read More

re: RIMM Followup

As I mentioned this morning I was looking to short RIMM on the open at resistance. I mentioned 140.50 as potential resistance. As it turned out 141 was resistance with many large offers.

One of our traders spotted a big ARCA seller at 20.50 who stepped lower to 20.35 and traded a couple hundred thousand shares on the offer. The same seller stepped lower to … Read More

re: RIMM Weakness

RIMM showing weakness in the pre market.  probably due to the WSJ article talking about people overestimating growth and underestimating risk in the consumer market.  I have covered the majority of my overnight short position as it has failed to hold an offer below 139.  Will look for resistance at 140.50 level after the market opens for a safe entry … Read More

One annoying computer program

Lately I have spotted a new computer program in my stocks and I think its important to briefly talk about these silly games. In our training program we talk about catalysts in a stock before making its move. There are plenty of times when you can see the buying/selling in a stock but it needs something to make the stock … Read More
