Re: 2017 Trading Thread

dumb question but are the twitter ppl who talk and post charts of pennystocks or < 100 mill mcap stocks pump and dump artists or wannabe daytraders? Not talking about random egg accounts but ones with decent followings

If Fred's couldn't get financing for 865 stores, how the hell are they going to get financing for 1000 stores?

Hmmm lost about $1k from DRYS earlier this year but it looks like my shippers are popping off overnight. I like DCIX as a potential laggard.

Please stop giving this guy & Shrkeli the publicity they want. Ridiculous the posts from some of you here & in the Apple thread. This is a trading & investing forum, not a lets celebrate idiot degens (who is very likely making most/all? of his story up).

Re: 2017 Trading Thread

DCIX continues to run and feels more solid than any of the other shippers. Dunno how much more I can contribute to the team than pointing out the #1 gainer a few hours before open

You are probably right about making it up - still an interesting distraction.

FWIW - I don't follow the AAPL thread so I didn't see the discussion there.

Edit - Bought small amount of Feb17 115 puts for the sweat.

Disagree. There's a lot to learn sweating an idiot's view on something. When it comes to trading, I've learned more from idiots than smart people.

Re: 2017 Trading Thread

lol the third or fourth howl didn't give it away?

Out of my DRYS at 5.3 and 5. Still have 1k DCIX for the overnight.
CSBR is steadily moving up, as expected, on 0 volume. Insiders own the vast majority and my suspicions are proving correct re: a quiet accumulation.

I do think there's something to be gained from this, if you're able to look at the "analysis" he did, who's supporting it, who's doing what with their money... it's not a tell all but I think it can certainly be an indicator of where the dumb money is going at the least. Stocktwits is great for this too. I've even found talking to people at work about their "stock and market tips" to be quite telling.

fwiw, I delved into the comments and his trades could not have happened based on volume of options at his indicated price point. I've seen that guy post before in that sub too, it's pretty much confirmed just an elaborate troll.

CSBR was all you man. I'm just stubborn and didn't know where else to stick my money. 100% of shares were selling for the Ask price and bots were duelling over 100 shares at a time so it made me suspicious. I don't have a cogent exit strategy.

Half tempted to focus on learning shipping stocks and just waiting for these crazy spots to come up.

I was genuinely impressed with the amount of effort that troll put into his work. Props and everything.

I'm looking to short DRYS once they announce another offering or something. It's bounced basically after they said they sold a **** ton of shares. Hoping they can start printing shares again.

Edit: rate hike expectations from anyone?

I've been in and out of DCIX for 6 months or so, and holding a small position in DRYS (just because the price action is insane and makes for pretty easy scalps on these runs.)

Hardest part for me is having an exit plan with these tho...because just when it looks like momentum has dried up, they move another leg or 2.

Yeah looks like I'll make 5-10% off DCIX and DRYS may have a followup day...

Hard not to gamble on the stock with the same volume as the rest of the index combined.
