Agreed, speculation is about putting the odds in your favor, and if you were wrong get out fast, your first loss is your smallest loss in trading, investing is very different.

Listen to Dennis Gartman at 20:40 about what makes a great trader. You can back up a little to hear more from him about Bitcoin, but that might belong in another thread.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Keep an eye on VALE here,check the chart below, it closed at $11.56 there is a very strong resistance 10 cents higher at $11.66-70,if it takes this resistance with a strong surge in price and closes up, then up we go, use $9.50 stop, if it fails then a correction again.

Last few trading days broke above $11.70 and currently intraday above $12. Very nice move over past 6 months. Updates?

Strong uptrend from $103, needs to close above $128.25 , then next target $135, ill use $118 stop for now.

Daily chart

https://www.tradingview.com/x/fecPVlpc/

Broke through on the upside yesterday/today.

Paging @ludmila for update.

Would you write Jan 18 135 covered calls here? Pricing seems to indicate little conviction that it takes 135 by expiration date, but looks like the option market believes it takes it easily in Feb.

It is not a bad idea, but I would rather just sell half the position straight out , and keep the raised trailing stop on the rest, as said, do not get married to a position, always take some profit and let the rest ride . Good luck.

Actually did that without waiting for your response. But now I have an idea of where to set the trailing stop.

I am going to place chart links to trades I am currently in, you can check on the stocks forum where I posted these trades
1. I am long all the precious metals, palladium in particular was my favorite trade that made a fortune actually better than bitcoin, I am selling half my positions and keeping the rest with a trailing stop, the pm's are coming back .

Palladium daily chart  held a long term  position from $495 which i sold today at $1107, the other half I bought close to $900 I am keeping open with a 998$ trailing stop.
https://www.tradingview.com/x/Os1ElQCT/


Gold currently at a 3 month high $1323 has further to go up, i am holding the full position

https://www.tradingview.com/x/UhmOxLXI/
Silver
Has been the weakest of the metals but currently approaching resistance , it has run up nicely last 2 weeks, i will hold the position for more upside
https://www.tradingview.com/x/g7dnegCa/
Platinum
This metal is 4 times rarer than gold, in the last few years went from $2400 to $870 last month, I went long a small position at $890 now it is at $965, if it breaks above the strong resistance of $1030 then it can go to $1200 very fast as a first target. Ill buy more above $1030.

I also had 2 currency trades in forex, still holding to both on the short side
I wrote about these earlier in this thread
1. I said a few weeks ago that the Israeli shekel was one of the strongest currencies out there when USD/ILS was at $3.55 and if it breaks below $USD 3.49 down we go, it did though the Bank of Israel tries their best by selling shekels in the open market we are at $3.44 today , first down target is $3.40

https://www.tradingview.com/chart/?symbol=COINBASE%3ABTCUSD

2. USD/NOK Norwegian Kroner  short from 8.65  now at 8.065  I am shorting a much larger position here, the NOK moves with oil and oil has been strong lately, this trade has the potential for a big down move.
https://www.tradingview.com/chart/?symbol=COINBASE%3ABTCUSD

PS I know these trades are futures and forex, ill try to start a new thread for all combined .

Kodak spiked 136% after it announced it launched its own form of blockchain
« Reply #2759 on: January 10, 2018, 02:05:08 PM »
Shares of Kodak spiked after the photo company announced it would launch its own form of blockchain technology dubbed "KodakCoin."
Kodak's stock is up 66.91% at $11.40 in pre-market trading on Wednesday. Shares soared as much as 136% on Tuesday, the day the news was initially announced.
So the madness is spreading, KODK stock went from $3 to $13 in 2 days, a co. losing money and he stock was going downhill , quadrupled in 2 days just by adding KodakCoin.
In 2000 right before the Nasdaq crash and .com bubble, many companies did add the words internet, and .com etc
Short 3000 shares @ $12.75
