    This blog still gets a fair number of visitors every month, which is why I leave it up. Even though the charts are a few years old, the strategies are still just as applicable. They worked long before I came along, and they will work long after I am...

    "CIEN, 15-minute chart, Fibonacci lines over the opening range. Price chopped around the retracement zone and then formed a nice hammer on top of it at 11:45, with support from the 5EMA. I exited at the Fibonacci extension, and re-entered on a break...
  • Looking at Facebook
    on May 30, 2012 in charts viewer mail
    Since there is a lot of talk in comments about FB, I thought it would be interesting to look at the action of the first 8 days. If you plot Fibonacci lines over the first and second day, you can see that - after the short-lived bounce on day 2 - pri...

    Friday's trade brought to you by Warren: "Shorted LBTYA on a break of the 13th bar. It was a nice pattern that gapped down, pulled back, and then broke back through the previous low of the morning. The trigger bar closed below the morning low, had a...
  • Trade the charts!
    on May 18, 2012 in technology
    Let the comments from the last post be a lesson to us all - there is a reason we trade the charts and don't make predictions! Sorry to those who commented - if it makes you feel better, I expected more from it too!  _______________...

    on Apr 9, 2012 in technology news
    Oh sweet irony - Kodak files for bankruptcy in January, and Instagram is bought for a billion dollars in April. I know their businesses aren't the same, but it is still an interesting statement on old world vs. new world (I'm pretty sure Instagram is...
