    • The Last Boomer: I never try to go against the trend unless it hits the boundaries of a trading channel. The upper bound here is still around 1280.

    • sstonerm3: So far my 200 shares of APA gains are almost keeping up with my 200 share TVIX loss. Net is about -$500. Lost $170 on TVIX stops today

    • campusglass: I had that happen to me yesterday=) apa is a savior.

    • sstonerm3: I'd be farther ahead if I'd closed both APA and TVIX first thing this morning. APA @ 100, TVIX @ 45. Net would have been about even.
