Reversal of fortune?

who cares, right now! 'bout just knocking some sense in again about protecting and building our own little fortunes as we start to experience this daily volatility thing.  This is old hat to the experienced traders, but this is something we all need to be reminded of at times.  Today a couple things came up on DJIM that makes this necessary.  One was early in MTRX.  We always say let the markets action dictate your move, the action, the volume will tell you what it thinks of earning / news and give you a clue as to what to do.  Sometimes its obvious and you might as well get your 'ball spikes on and join in the frenzy..aka FFHL type moves, other times 40k volume premarket as in MTRX will leave you holding your shorts on a white stick as you stand on the 'top' looking down at the action at 9:35am.  Do you want to be with the 1 million shares seemingly traded around 16.50's today or be amongst a few at high 17's, some 18's premkt.  It's lonely at the top!. We tried to throw caution in the morning note again, there is more than one buy opportunity after the exuberance dies off and it will come at a decent entry.  Be patient!.

Back to basics on MTRX, the numbers are very good but unfortunately come on day 2+ of the massacre on the oil patch.  Matrix Service Co beats by $0.13, beats on revs (MTRX) 15.10 :Reports Q2 (Nov) earnings of $0.31 per share, including options charges, $0.13 better than the Reuters Estimates consensus of $0.18; revenues rose 31.2% year/year to $166.4 mln vs the $138.4 mln consensus and raised revenue guidance by 10%.  The instit's hold over 90% and today they churned this at recent resistance.  We took a starter early and added a bit more at the close as it showed it could hold that resistance at least for today.  You might remember our intro of ABM pre market back in December. The first candlestick looks similar as MTRX today and we alerted the next day I think at 21.50 to our buy in and it rocked past that candlesticks top.  That ABM is also a big instit holding and maybe this will play out in a similar fashion.  We touched on ABM last night, everything still holds..but it just looks a bit better today at the close.

The other matter came up in the forum. Yes, we recycle stocks..but to recycle they need to lie in the bin for a while. We do not go buying the dips the next day or the day after.  Let the raccoons frolic in the bin.  We avoid the downturn in a stock by going somewhere else, sometimes its just into cash.  Yesterday we said the 'FXI' is the fix right now in dealing with our Asian DJIM's.  We got a nice run the past week and yesterday as the FXI turned,  we were locking in those gains.  If we put in the forum the FXI is at the gap open and it could get worse...we mean it and wouldn't be standing around at the gap open in a falling market like yesterday to see the gap potentially close.   So no ...we wouldn't be adding the MR, HMIN back today when the FXI has closed that gap pre market at $112.  This can't be a buy signal during the day if we are using this ETF as a measuring stick right now to our China Stocks.  We've had MR,EDU since September, recycling it over and over again but never the next day.   BIDU, is an exception as it trades with the internets and today that sector was not a bad place to find yourself.   Speaking of dips..GROW is swimming in it and we ain't jumping in on such a break of the 9ema.

What we always prefer to do is find something else, something else that is near a high, breaking a high or in the beginning of a reversal.  Something like a SYX or a HRT or more ABM or a new play that might catch on like MTRX.   Basically we trade the "GREEN' not the "RED" stocks. If you don't like GREEN and prefer Pink, Orange, maybe your trading platform will allow you to change the colors around. Whatever color you choose, it's best to trade the stocks with a + in front of them in our book.

ROS has been renamed the Russian Rocket...this is just funny and explains those huge lots on the bid we talked of recently. There's been one shakeout recently to low 40's, one might come again but in the meantime adding as this goes higher.

ZOLL is just ZOLL, a nice and quiet medical device stock that doesn't really care about much about the markets internals. Steady she goes...

Besides the highlighted stocks above, we are trading some AMK on the speculative side of things today.

The funny thing we kept mumbling yesterday is its Jan 3rd,2007, who the hell cares about the December 12th, 2006 FOMC minutes.  But it doesn't matter how silly we thought the Times Square NYEve Ball drop was...the only thing that mattered was what the market thought.  It's all reaction..action and we just play along with it....yesterday on the sell on the buy side.


.6 .6  .6%

Guess we should take those % gains from the DJIA/SPX/NASD yesterday as a sign from the devil that we are going to have a down day to follow.  It wouldn't be a surprise, but on the other hand that is what most expected yesterday and we just didn't get it.   The herd was playing catch up and the profit taking didn't hit till quite late in the day.  By this time, we were sitting pretty as we had done as promised before the open and that is, " we will be selling lots and lots of yesterdays buys before catching our breath and possibly repositioning".   The good thing about yesterday is the morning catch up lasted longer than anticipated and it gave ample time to sell and get a price.  The repositioning of the sells really didn't happen as the market slid too late in the day giving the impression a little more selling might continue into today.   So why reload at that stage, is our thinking.  Still, there were some stocks worthy of intraday plays and others worth holding to see what's further up possibly.  Also, instead of adding to stocks recently talked or alerted to the day before like the GS that went to a morning high of $207, EXM mid 48's, DRYS almost 76, BIDU almost 285, TNH to 123 which we sold in the morning...we went went after a MR late in the game because it was making another new charge to highs and because the Chinese stocks is one area that held up the best during the day.....

EJ, is one we keep on holding. Yesterday, we noted possible accumulation. This was even more evident as this one churned and rolled all day in even another tight range.  Either this a forward to ML's initiation or something else, or its just a fine piece of China making a dandy cup and handle.  This is not trading as before when volatility was huge, don't ever forget those days. A shakedown is always possible and don't all get shaky knees if it comes.   We've had a nice week and considering Chinese stocks are holding their own, like JRJC, MR its worth some more time.  As said before, we added back MR and as far as JRJC, we are only flipping it here and there.

LULU, MELI, and even WX, interestingly the recent IPO's had very nice days, actually some of the best out there and we have put these on our potential trading list.  MELI, is a new name here.  It got initiated yesterday and is of the foreign AMZN, EBAY biz nature.

GS, as a follow up to possibly hold a portion into earnings. We got a very nice price/ gain and after MS's report, we'd prefer to stay out and play it in the morning if they announce nicely.  For markets sake , we hope its great and so we can live with any points we might miss.

ICOC,  we'd just like to point out the concept here has always been playing the possibility of "IBD100 inclusion".  The main idea is finding and getting to them early and going big early into the $15 level late in the week.  Remember NGA, GTI, IDSA even SYX???.  If not go back to April, use search and see the prices we started and read up on the strategy.    So, if a stock is already at $15+ on a Wednesday, it really offers us little incentive at that price.   Also, do consider that a $15 stock with a beautiful run has been drummed around and pushed by either other stock forums, hedgies...or whatever and if they use the strategy as us in the NGA, GTI plays, guess what they might be doing here?.  Well, at least we would be dumping to newbies after getting 1-2-3-4-5 pts. We'll watch for now and if we get a nice dip we might add ..anyways, we'll see how it trades these last 2 days and deal with it hour by hour.

At this point, even if we didn't reload our sells late in the day, we'd look back to these names as soon as we see the buying of pullbacks starts in the market.  And it will as any dump will be seen as a buying opportunity for those who missed this move and think this market will be going higher in the days, weeks and months ahead.  Buying the dips in this market will again occur.
