this is true, but I was just trying to show him that a stop loss could help him gain even more....even a 5% drop would be around $516, and he bought at $510....

Futures down hmm.. I don't know I'm still bullish long term but adding to longs recently has not paid off I don't know how more buying is going to happen without a nice big drop first. Is anyone thinking of buying into anything this morning at these levels?

S&P 500 Index futures (/ES) are pointing to a lower open this morning. Renewed concern over Greece is helping fuel the weakness, even as a report confirmed that overnight deposits at the ECB hit a record high. Banks took the influx of cash from the ECB and deposited most of it right back to the Central bank. Investors still expect Greece to avoid defaulting, but the country still must clear one more hurdle before it receives its second round of bailout funds. There is little on the U.S. economic calendar today so the market could look to digest its recent gains. The usual jobs report that is due the first Friday of the month will be released next week.  The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) fell sharply yesterday as equities rose.  The fear gauge continues to pull-back due to the improved economic data.  Oil futures (/CL) are slightly lower this morning after spiking yesterday afternoon on a rumor of an exploded pipeline in Saudi Arabia. The rumor was false but rising crude and gas prices will begin to take a toll on consumer spending, which makes up 70% of our economy.

correct and that 5% move was a once a year type move IMO, not every day does apple run up $25 then pull back $35 lol. If it does like that, one should take the stopped out position and re-evaluate the trade. Who would have thought starring at that candle that we would make that ground up and set new highs a week after. You can't single out a rare event and set all your stops/trades for that one event.

I think it's safe to say AAPL will climb going into the release of iPad3...

Anybody else notice currency is seeming to disconnect more and more the last few days from equities? Euro has moved from like 1.348 down to right around 1.32 now and /DX back over $79.25 yet the /es still holding ~1370.

 

Maybe Marco can chime in on what he has noticed as I believe he was maintaining a spreadsheet showing /DX % moves vs S&P % moves. Would be curious to see how the last few trading days relates to the previous few weeks.

I'm willing to bet they already bought their AAPL, that would help explain the massive, persistent rise the stock has seen.

Anyone who even looks at the GAZ chart should also be tracking GAZ.IV. Right now IV is 2.70s and stock is 5.0s... that's about an 80% premium to NAV. It tracks the same thing as dUNG, so just know all about what you're trading before you get in to that knife-throwing contest.

SPY volume is completely atrocious this morning. Probably going to be a sideways day, thinking if we get a good enough morning dip, this is one to be buying.
