Doesn't look too bad if it can break out above $42.

1.5 yrs of consolidation

10yrs: downtrend (2006 to end of 2008) and then up and topped out in 2010. Big resistance at $23.
5 yrs: two lower tops and then a steep downtrend through most of this yr . Now forming wedge
1 yr: 6 months of sideways consolidation $16 to $11.50
3 month chart - lower tops in each of the months. flatish uptrend forming the bottom of a wedge.

Conclusion

Another uninspiring chart. This could break either way from the wedge but downward slope of the tops in much steeper than the bottom line. If it can hold at $13.25 (Thursday's low it might be the second purchase but once again I would balance it with SDS.

So far this has been a discouraging exercise and it has taken SO much time.

Edit:
I have decided to buy the rest of the 8 and SDS at open on Monday.
So I'll divide up the cash balance in the account into the other 7 and SDS

$81,918 cash balance
$49,051 other 7 - so about $7,000 each
$32,867 more SDS

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

bought the other seven

So I have the trades at opening prices.
I am using $9.99 of commission per trade (flat amount).

We bought 1550 more SDS (the ultrashort downside protection) and now hold 1800.

Here are the prices and holding for today (Trade = last trade so this is pretty much the closing prices - except for after market price changes).

Norvatis seemed to go up today bucking the trend (its the only one with 5 planets in Taurus - so the highest number )

I guess the loss is my doing since SDS the ultrashort has negated the gain that would have been shown otherwise.

I am putting my bearish bias on this exercise however my leaning as a trader is to buy and sell so intend to sell some SDS on a downspike of several days when it looks overdone. On upward surges that look overdone I will see if any of the holdings should be lightened.

(I am applying a $9.99 flat commission on all trades.)

NDZ is down and I have bought 200 more shares at $8.06.
The previous 900 were bought at $8.42.

SDS the proshares ultashort is still the drag on the portfolio if we get a 3 or 4 down days,
to next Friday I'll sell some SDS
(I figure I have about $9,926 to match out moves - by that I mean I bought too much for the Beta of these 8 stocks as of yesterday so I'll sell more than that. )
