The Rare High Tight Flag Chart Pattern

By |2018-11-27T09:04:43+00:00November 27, 2018 9:04 am|

The High Tight Flag Pattern is a rare one according to Investors Business Daily; "This vertical-looking pattern forms as a stock surges 100% to 120% in four to eight weeks. The stock then corrects just 10% to 25% in price for only three to five weeks. The ideal buy point is the high of the flag plus 10 cents". LINK. $PRQR fits a somewhat loose definition of a high tight flag pattern, and I believe you have to cut it some slack due to the market being under pressure. The stock ran up 175% at the beginning of September, and [...]

8 Soft Facts About Shorting

By |2018-10-24T11:58:46+00:00October 24, 2018 11:53 am|

Currently, we are somewhat oversold, and you might hear that oversold can become more oversold, but the odds always favor a dead cat bounce than an outright crash. I still prefer [...]

Most individual names are down a lot more than that. My advice when the market corrects is pretty consistent every time, be diligent with your stocks, take your losses, move on, and live to fight another day. Unlike the indices, stocks come and go, some go and never come back.  The indices tend to move higher over time. The average intra-year decline in the S&P500 in [...]
