Tackle Today: Pleased to meet you (Devil's Tower at sunrise by Bradley Davis on Flickr modified by Christian Sisson)

≈ Hope you guess my name. ≈

(“This stock is sure to breakout. Perfect pattern. Let me check… rules… 7 contracts. I’ll double that, 14 calls instead. […]”)

Please allow me to introduce myself

(“Wow, the market is on a 5-month run. No need to buy puts in a market this strong. I’m on a winning streak, won’t hit the brake pedal. […]”)

I’m a man of wealth and taste

(“This stock has a nice premium, price is $7, wow, what a bargain. It’s been sideways like forever. Sell puts… How many contracts? At that price it won’t be a problem selling 20 contracts and stuff my account with cash flow. […]”)

I’ve been around for a long, long year

(“Faith in my chart reading and technical skills, that is what I have.”)

Stole many a man’s soul and faith

(“Downtrend is almost over, hit the bottom, showing a reversal pattern. Pretty soon the position will stop bleeding money. […]”)

Pleased to meet you

(“God, look at this leverage! Imagine how much money I could make with this leveraged product. […]“)

Hope you guess my name

(“Journal. This is nonsense. I don’t need a spreadsheet that tells me my account is growing and my trades are profitable. […]”)

But what’s puzzling you

(“I’ve learned to make money without using a Paper account. Give me a break. Who needs paper accounts just to learn how to enter an order? […]”)

Is the nature of my game

That was the topic for the April 30th article. The suspense surrounding the breakout of the S&P 500—and now the new support found—is still killing and the climax hasn’t arrived yet. Breakout or fakeout? Hold or capitulate?
