Didn’t it hit $240 yesterday? Man I would be dumping right about now. The ultimate pump and dump. Shrouded in a cause.

Very upset I didn’t catch that wave. Very nice start to the year.

& the talking heads are already trying to spin this as to why the market might take a fall

“The real question is whether this selling starts a negative feedback loop,” Muir wrote Monday. “Even though it might seem like the stock market bulls should be cheering the squeezes, their success might end up being the trigger that brings about the general stock market correction many have been waiting for.”

Ya i don't like the way its behaving...USD went soft for awhile & it never really took advantage of that.
Liking the look of SOL better so about to pull the trigger there, hoping that 150 was the end of its retracement, couple more bars & it should be out of that downtrend resistance.
Couple of large size orders went thru there before so hopefully that retracement is done.

Taking a stab at WHL and averaging on SNH - looking for a small short term profit (pennies to gamble with)

Also added some STXCHN to the ETF basket for longer term - seems like a nice entry into the Chinese space for some diversification

Looking at DCP and wondering whether I should get my average cost lower on this - been a bad bad doggy to me

Is someone big soaking up a lot of selling on DRD , they sitting there at 1600 with hidden volume bids if DRD floats your boat.

Went up to $353,69 pre-market. Short float is >140%. Something big is going to happen here - maybe big enough to cause a market crash. I suspect the SEC will have to step in and end the party at some point.

Looks like $AMC is getting the WSB autist treatment as well:
