No, but it isn't called $TICK on all the platforms

A quote from a half hour ago, when the SPX had been at 1346.  The SPX is currently at 1351.  1356 should be the next target and a key level to test for today.

Nope.  Just type in $TICK on your chart software.  I use the 5min.  Readings of 800+ or -800 and lower tend to give you an idea of whether buyers or sellers are snatching control.

Phil,

 

I bought my self into UVXY yesterday @ $6.17, ( I am kicking my self) and now I am down - 8%. Should I buy more share to lower my cost? or wait till tomorrow?

can you ask yourself why you entered, since you dont know why you are holding

Reverse split in this case is actually a good thing. People have a negative perception of reverse splits because typically it was done by companies that are in bad shape. They do it to meet the minimum listing price requirements. However, companies that are turning around also do reverse splits.

 

In this case, UVXY is not a company and it is not going out of business. Its volume and assets under management just got exploded in a weeks time frame and matching with TVIX volume now. The RS is being done to minimize the bid-ask spread in percentage terms which will reduce the trading costs.

Again, this is why you don't blindly follow people on a message board if you don't understand the "why" of the trade.  Know what I mean?

Don't fret SJ-e...just a little oversold bounce to the 1360 area and then we get the real correction. I'm thinking 6-8% before it's over?  smile.gif

post #572 of 985

Sold my calls a little too early, but looking to get short soon on this bounce with a put spread. I don't think we will go down too much. Pretty confident that we'll chop around and drift lower until March expiration.

 

Lets see if we can get to 1360

You may want to look at VRML. It's saving my bacon today.

post #574 of 985

I would add more at 5.70 if capital is available. 5.70 is kind of a support level and I do think it will recover.

My timing was not perfect either as I bought 7600 shares at 6.10.

 

The typical answer is you must decide for yourself as no one else can take responsibility for the losses. However, I was telling what I would do if more capital is available.

 

This thing is very volatile and one need to have the strength to withstand the moves.

Im excited!

 

I want one! I dont know why, but I must have it!

 

Maybe Ill get some AAPL puts after today so it pays for itself. tongue.gif

post #576 of 985

That is great to hear. It is already down 21% and seems like at a support. However, with that big run it can fall more if the support is broken.

I'm mostly a Nasdaq trader (just like the order flow better)..... but in this particular case I was aligning the $TICK with my TNA trade.  It punched a +1021 reading which was higher than the +1019 from this morning, essentially making a higher high and it was on like Donkey Kong.  Look at just after 11am on the charts of TNA and the $TICK.  You'll see when buyers took control ....

The NYSE has a broad mix of stocks, but the Nasdaq is tech heavy. At the moment tech stocks are dictating direction, so looking at Nasdaq is a good idea. Ideally you should have anough screens that you can use both. wink.gif
