  • Geron's Short Squeeze Is Here [View article]
    LTB, I was going to rant, but saw your post. The only problem...you said "should" and "could". Words that....hmmm...how should I say this....suck! (grin)

    Not a GERN investor, just a day trader. But i was surprised, with that news, that GERN did not perform better today. So...I buy your "profit taking" scenario.

    If it is just profit taking, then yes, GERN "will" (wink) go up over time, given the new deal. (must have a positive attitude, right?)

    Thank you LTB. Have a great weekend.

    Whoa, you go Eli..."getting married to it". Right on. Position size is always critical, no matter the strategy. BTW, it's "pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered".

    Job too big for one person? We also need better parties and a way to stop big money from running the government. See any of that happening soon? We the People are not angry enough yet, so we get screwed.

    Believe me (or not) not all traders are gamblers. It is fun, however, to portray them as gamblers.......http://bit.ly/R4np2N

    The truth is (as shown by the study above) the day trading winning 1% have learned how NOT to gamble. They have developed a winning strategy I'm sure.

    Day traders should not be looked down upon. They have to eat too...and in the meantime are providing liquidity so that you investors can more easily get in and out of your holdings.

    There is enough for all.

    Have a nice day.

    Yes, I had heard the same figures. Agree, day trading is not easy. But it is attainable for some.

    Thanks again for your article Larry. Much appreciated.

    What about those that actually work hard at day trading? Do you denigrate them too?

    LOL, especially here on SA. As per an SA Co-founder, "we are a site for investors, not short term traders or day traders.....http://bit.ly/1lsRwwM".

    It would be interesting to know how many years experience the 1% that succeeded had under their belts. In other words did persistence eventually pay off?

    Any insight to that Larry?

    And John, could using TA be part of the problem?
