Thoughts & Comments
  1. Subscribers were alerted to AXP OCT12 57.50 Calls as a good trade that could make a 50% profit within a few days. It Opened at $0.77 and quickly climbed to a high of 1.46 (90%).
  2. The DJI spent most of the day up with a 3-digit gain. There is more action to come.
  3. Precious metals are in an ascending triangle. Watch for a breakout.
  4. I expect the VIX to break above 17.00 within the next 5 trading days.
  5. AMZN is forming a pennet.
  6. TBT has bounced between resistance and support each day for the last 4 days. There is a move coming here.
  7. UAL is looking to fall sharply within the next two weeks.

WTF!? Non-trading related but far more important than trading. Click Here
