    • BTD70: ....look pretty good at their current levels.
      1/3/14
    • BTD70: Just finished DD. I think (pending Monday AM news/outlook) I will shoot for $WTW and $ROSE. It will be a rare day where I can actually...
      1/3/14
    • BTD70: ...watch in real-time, so hoping for some good entries and some extra $ by Feb 1st with both of those.
      1/3/14
    • det9: Nice..yes.. Would like to add $ROSE on any dip below 46..$WTW below 32.. I did not stick to my plan for $DTO... So not too happy abt it
      1/4/14
    • det9: I would look into other companies you mentioned.. I like enter some new companies.. $CLMT, $EVEP doing good so far.. Waiting for $FSC..
      1/4/14
    • det9: Ideally, I would like to have core and play amount for every stock I own but I am holding 25 or so companies. Will not have time and would

    • det9: Be out of dry powder completely..but the plan in next few weeks is to reduce to 15 or even 10.. We will see.. I will be working from Mon too
      1/4/14
    • nclsamy: Det, your plan is right and I'm still struggling to reduce my number of co.s to be able to follow it, but I don't know what to sell because
      1/4/14
    • nclsamy: I like them all. I was looking to reduce my exposure to oil and maybe cut some ROSE when it rises a bit. I like SN more.
      1/4/14
    • det9: Samy: both are high beta.. I am looking to have 70% low beta stocks may be with dividend till we know what is next move in market..
      1/4/14
    • det9: And u r right.. I don't know what to sell now but need to decide at some point..
      1/4/14
    • BTD70: That's a good dilemma to have ; )
      1/4/14
    • BTD70: I think unlikely that $WTW rechallenges 52WL in January, but what do I know. It just seems like a good trade. Hope for sub-32 entry also.
      1/4/14
    • BTD70: With $ROSE I realize a drop to 43 is possible, but don't think it likely. Looking for $46.35 entry or thereabouts.
      1/4/14
    • BTD70: $EXETF is an interesting story and can talk about that in PM if you're interested.
      1/4/14
    • BTD70: I am OK bidding into $WTW @ a max of 32.35 for my purposes. Good luck this week guys!
      1/4/14
    • BTD70: p.s. I am waiting for $FSC @ 9.10ish also.
      1/4/14
    • nclsamy: Good luck you too, Brian.2 good weekend reads regarding SN http://seekingalpha.com/a/15aqj and ROSE http://seekingalpha.com/a/15auz
      1/4/14
    • det9: I have lot of $FSC already but I Am treating everything as core.. If it gets close to 9, I don't mind adding 2x.. One of my fav's now
      1/4/14
    • det9: All this being said, I have not seen bear market yet.. Might have to wait few more years.. That would be the time to load all up and wait
      1/4/14
    • det9: Till then we have to play for chump change.. I am going to treat all this as practice shooting..
      1/4/14
    • BTD70: Thanks for the reads Samy, thanks Det. Det, you're shorting and that's good practice for bear market. $FSC @ 9.10 #1 on my watchlist.
      1/4/14
    • BTD70: And it is probably actually OK for a trade at it's current price, but I need to be disciplined.
      1/4/14
    • BTD70: My darkhorse opp for the week is $DPZ, breakout play. Would be better served with options though.
      1/4/14
    • det9: As of now, 44% long, 20% short and the rest in cash..
      1/4/14
    • BTD70: Curious--in 2013 what was the lowest percentage cash you kept at one point...0?
      1/4/14
    • det9: I was on full margin four times in the year last one being before and after Christmas Day. One was before & after thanksgiving and two more
      1/4/14
    • det9: So u could say -100..
      1/4/14
    • det9: It's not uncommon for me to get into margin for day trading.. If there is really positive news and if crude is barely up first bell, I buy
      1/4/14
    • det9: Heavy such as $USO or related.. More often than not ( I am 5/5) you can get big gains but make sure there are no Inventory reports..
      1/4/14
    • det9: With my new job I may not able to do that anymore..
      1/4/14
    • BTD70: that's interesting, thanks. It confirms what I thought (36% cash = feeling more bearish or at least uncertain).
      1/5/14
    • BTD70: There is generally one day a week I can give the screen my full attention between 7 and 11 AM. So appreciate the insight.
      1/5/14
    • BTD70: Though my (more limited) observations suggest alot of times (on days like you're describing) there is a dip in the first hour...
      1/5/14
    • BTD70: ...on some strong oil stocks that will provide great intraday trades on a somewhat consistent basis. USO I track trend but not intraday.
      1/5/14
    • BTD70: When the stars are lining up, will you get into USO premarket (if no inventory report due that day)? Thanks.
      1/5/14
    • det9: Barring surprises I see oil below 90.. I don't know what more good news could prop this market up. But I would buy if we are up atleast 1%
      1/5/14
    • det9: Up premarket and $USO did not move..
      1/5/14
    • BTD70: thanks.
