sandjco, you are welcome! with DGLD, if i can help, using the charting wealth system the guys who run it are clear for gold the 4 hour chart is the only one you look at. So just use free stock charts and run a 4 hour chart to see how your gold position is shaping up. it will help you exit faster if you have to. Using the 4 hour chart i knew gold was probably gonna continue to run up.

Thanks PT...my challenge is that...I have limited access during the trading hours and sites like bestfreecharts with my iPhone. The best thing i have right now is using yahoo app with 15min delayed feed. With DGLD I just got impatient with the non activity and i wanted some more dry powder to play.

Because (my own reasoning...not sure if it is the "right play") I cannot watch the market during the trading hours...I'm more tight on my exits when the stock does not seem to move my way.

I will use your suggestion when i can find or run across an app that will give me the 4hr time frame for free with an iPhone ;=D

As always...im always open to learning anything that will make me a better trader

Have exited long positions before they turned red; will use EOD prices to track.

Come on....let's have some correction so we can re-mount!

Thanks for dropping by Mike and Shils!

Mike... not sure if "this" the mother of all reversals. IMHO, the market has had a joyful ride since Trump was elected with no major local or global malaise to trigger a mother of all sell offs. Even the drama with North Korea was a non event. Thank you for your kind feedback; I'm glad someone was able to benefit from my posting.

Using EOD...

AMZN out at $1304.86 for 8%
LIT out at $39.83 for a slight 3% loss
XIV out at $137.76 for a 1% loss
TECL out at $126.27 for 5.9%
TNA out at $75.17 for 3.7%

Hindsight:
I bailed too early late Dec on probably less than optimal trading volumes (holidays) and re-mounted XIV on less than optimal entry as well. LIT was what I thought could have been a play on TSLA but it never moved. Going back to johnpauls' excellent question to me..."what is your sell trigger"? In this case, I don't have one yet. My gut ruled the day - XIV didn't start well despite the other stocks I was watching doing well during the morning and then the losing steam as the day progressed. I would imagine if I had access to see a 2 hour chart, this would have been evident (?).

I currently have no positions for the purposes of this blog. However, as I am interested in Options...I opened a small contract on VXX puts just prior to market close.

Scaling into DGAZ $22.20. Short VXX $26.50. Long RIOT $20.25 (broke my self imposed rule of not trading individual stocks) and long AMZN $1298.30

As Liz Ann Sonders, Chief Investment Strategist,of Charles Schwab & Co noted this week: Since 1993, if you bought SPY on open each day, return would be -5.2%...but if you did opposite & bought on close next day, return would be 568%. VIX suppressing moves in NYSE hours and releasing it out of hours. for some reason.

@pt...i must admit, I don't really listen or tune in to the talking heads anymore. Growing up, I remembered watching Lou Roukeyser (I think that was his name).

I read somewhere once....when the market is able to climb a wall of worry...it is a bull. I would really really really like some big mother correction tho...;=P
