I took small long positions in CF (92.05), AAPL (179.80), FSLR ($235.25) and RIG (132). The first three were so oversold that I decided to buy after they started to bounce off their lows. If we get the holiday bounce everybody is waiting for, these stocks should do quite well.
I used strength to short dryshippers DRYS ($77.13) and EXM (33.75). Both still could move a little higher (in fact, both closed above my short entry), however, the bounce was too good to pass up. They have very “toppy” looking formations.
I can see DRYS testing the 200 day moving average at 60. I am using a loose stop (83). If it breaks above 83, we may see a run to the 50 day moving average at $100 before resuming the downtrend. I don’t mind taking the risk of loss considering the possible gain. If I get stopped out at $83, you can bet I’ll try again at $100.
I took profits in shorts QID and AKAM.
