  • Don't Be Fooled By Stock Market Noise [View article]
    I tried the fake chart test, and almost got it correct, choosing B, C, and G. This was just going by patterns I've seen in charts over the years. I actually considered F as well, but then I had a thought that the coin clip charts had a bit extra noise (seen as thicker lines). In hindsight B had thinner lines than C and G which is a possible result of randomness as well.

    Chartists will say there are patterns, and while I agree there is a strong overall signal, the noise isn't completely random either. The result of psychology and risk management produces certain kinds of charts. For example, declines tend to be sharp rather than slow at the end (F rather than E), and bargain hunters cause a bounce at the end but rarely back to where it was (F rather than H) D and A are too orderly. You might call it an HHHHHH event. Doesn't rule it out but makes it less likely.

    Of course, maybe my thoughts and picks are just random and I'm destined for mediocre investing.

    " I wanted the bank to carry that liability, not me."

    Gained a follower right here. Brilliant.

    When did he tell you this though? Surely before the stock went into the pennies.

    AXPW has been played by the penny pumper every other day for weeks now all through the B warrant dump process. Chances are it will be pumped again, except now you don't have the B's trickling down the price while you wait. Upside would also not be hammered so quickly. Seems like a decent bet to me.

    Could be a good time to load up again, as it will be a while before R/S happens. Onward, penny pump!

    Maybe not default yet. The terms state that the company will make reasonable attempt to do R/S or increase auth.

    While I've been in "denial" I've also worked off the losses by trading my position and made a nice profit with my B warrants. Better than coming here to blame and heckle.

    Rolling with the punches here. More accurate to say that I was not in denial but rather believed something that wasn't true. All the 20/20 hindsight people are swinging the other way too, believing the other extreme in the negative.

    Myself I just acknowledge what I know and don't know, and try to correct my mistakes.

    No news that my broker knows.

    It does act like some B's are dumping. I've observed many dumps which convinced me to get out. It's really puzzling why it continues though... perhaps some B holders didn't get the memo.

    Changed my mind. Not a whole lot of volume and sell blocks keep happening. Got out with a quick profit.

    It's like they say in poker: you don't play your hand, you play your opponent's hand.

    If the Twitter folk are buying and broadcast their intentions, it's not the time to worry about stock valuation.

    I think they will meet with their counsel to discuss either R/S or authorized increase, and then call a special vote. I don't think the B holders want to BK so Axion has not found any suitors or customers, so best course is to just let them take the time to increase shares or R/S.

    This will take time and sell pressure off the stock, so it's a great trade. The market agrees +45% as of now.

    I have the same estimates as you, interestingly. I will likely hold til next week unless 6c hits today.

    Nobody joining in on the fun? You guys are missing out.

    Wish I did a full position though. I was early so didn't know if there would be volume.

    B warrant conversions have been halted. I took a small position to see how traders push this now.
