  • Apple Is Worth $265 [View article]
    You're looking forward to the next earnings?

    Based on what?

    If they beat estimates, it'll be the first time in a year.

    After their stock rose to $644.00 last April right before earnings, even an earnings beat didn't stop the slide to $522.00.

    That was then, this is now. It's still sliding a year later.

    While the stock is not rising like it did last year at this time, the falling part is all too familiar.

    I feel for you Bulls, if you're still long.

    Good luck.

    Hi Shodamo,

    Great to hear from a technician. When I started trading at the end of 2011, I found some good information on technical trading, but it seemed complicated, and unfortunately, I was so thrilled with my gains in Apple, I tuned it out and just kicked back and watched my balance grow.

    I rode Apple from the $400.00's to $644.00 all the way down to $522.00, and back up to $705.00. I figured this latest correction was just another bump in the road on the way to $1,000.

    I finally caved at $445.00 and sold out. It may just rise again, and when it does, I'll jump back in.

    Bulls have to realize that the party is over, for now at least. Last year in April is when the stock dove 19%. Could we see a repeat of that this year, after a down quarter? Possibly. If so, I'll be ready with my puts.

    Here's a website I like to visit for some technical advice:

    If you can recommend any good books or sites, let me know.

    Peace.

  • Apple Bears Are Delusional [View article]
    Another technical analyst predicted the price will drop to $360, and he posted that in Dec, when the price was still over $500.00 a share.

    Let me know what you think of his analysis. He stands by it today.

    I think Apple will rise again. I just think it's not wise to buy right now, when the sentiment is down, and it's trading in bear territory.

    Sorry to come off so flippant the other day. I've lost a lot of money on Apple, so I'm very leery about buying any until that trend changes.

    When it does, I will be a buyer again.

    Good luck, and have a profitable week!

    My balance is $66,285.56 to start today.

    I've been getting stopped out alot.

    I should have just let everything ride, because the losses are outnumbering the gains because of my tight stops.

    I'm a little gun shy after witnessing the massive losses the past 6 months, but if I'm confident in the trend, I need to give my stops a lot more leeway to run.

    I'm still learning.

    I'll keep trying though, until I hit a winner.

    @jamesingram

    Thanks James,

    I wish I knew then what I know now. I'd still have most of my money if I'd just followed a plan.

    Check out my profile again. I took out that born to win and did some changes, and also posted an insta blog on how to trade Apple.

    hint: it does not involve buying shares long

    let me know what you think of my ideas.

    peace.

    So sell.

    Why are you holding?

    Rule # 1

    Protect your profit, limit your losses

    Sell your shares and buy some puts

    Follow the trend if you want to make money

    Go against the trend if you want to lose money.

    Apple doesn't always go up, as you know

    You have to learn to trade in the direction of the trend

    Apple is in a downtrend.

    Simple, right?

    So why won't you do it?

    If you don't have a plan, the market will chew you up and spit you out.

    If it's because you don't have a plan, check out my insta blog post, "How to trade Apple"

    SA won't publish it, but it will tell you everything you need to know about how to get out of this bad trade you're in, and set you on a direction to actually making money.

    It's fun seeing my portfolio in the green each day

    Remember those days?

    Never fight the market

    You will ALWAYS lose

    If you're in a bad trade, get out.

    Hurry and read my insta blog.

    You'll have more money that way.

    Gained another $1,000 today with my Apple puts. My balance has gone from $65,500, when I sold Apple last thursday, to $69,151. That's $3,651 in 3 trading days. Plus I saved another $7,500 to my bottom line by selling at $445.00.

    I now know how to trade. I'm not afraid of the market anymore. I have a set of rules to follow. SA won't publish them, so I'll post them here, in my instablog, so i can always refer to them when in doubt.

    If you don't have a plan, I suggest you read my post, "How to trade Apple"

    Until tomorrow.

  • Ambarella, Inc.: Bad IPO Timing And Pricing, Creates Micro Cap Investment Opportunity [View article]
    Why does he have to lose 30-50%?

    What kind of plan is that?

    Set your stops, limit your losses.

    Follow the trend.

    Easy!

    @XRTrader

    I held since Nov 2011 thru last week

    Didn't know how to invest, so I blindly held (sound familiar, Bulls?)

    I know now

    I now trade with a plan, with a set of rules

    One of those rules is to never break my rules

    One of those rules is if you're in a bad trade, get out

    I am now up around $4,000 in the past few days

    And selling the shares saved another $7500 to my bottom line

    I tried to post an article explaining my rules, but SA hasn't published it yet. Maybe because I said the word ass.

    Or maybe because of the title, "Perma Bull to Apple Bear-How to trade Apple.

    Maybe they don't wanna scare anybody.

    The poor bulls get enough fright everytime they log in. We don't want to pile on.

    I control my money now, not the market, and I'm holding 75% in cash right now, looking for another trend to jump on.

    3 principles to trade by:

    1. Preservation of capital
    2. Consistant profitability
    3. The pursuit of superior returns

    Write to the editors everybody.

    I'd really like to get that article published

    It's alot easier than posting hundreds of tips like this

    there's a lot more to it.

    Peace out

  • Stocks reverse early losses to turn moderately green in mid-afternoon trade. Down nearly 0.5% in this morning, the S&P 500 +0.4%. Nasdaq +0.2%, despite another ugly day for Apple (-2%). [View news story]
    So let it go!

    Sell your shares and go short.

    If you're stuck in a bad trade, just get out.

    You'll finally be happy to open your portfolio, for once

    Follow the market.
