“The market is in a vulnerable situation where we could see a trap
door open under the market’s feet and stocks could start falling again this week,
just like we saw on November 4, 2008.”
The next day the Dow 30 had the 4th largest point drop in history, dropping 679 points or 7.7%. It was a ratio of 80 shares being sold to every 1 share being bought and a 12 to 1 declines vs. advancers. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 9% that same day along with the S&P 500, which dropped 80 points or 9% as well.
“We are setting up for another countertrend rally which means a bull run within a long term bear market.
The last rally we went long was the October 28th through the November 4th
top and then short for a couple of days but it has been heavy selling since
that point. We want to look for signs of a climactic sell-off with
very high volume in individual stocks and indices. We want to see
those bids continue to drop like we saw today. Stock prices really
don’t make sense at this level because any metric that is used to
evaluate price is irrelevant. The market is irrational despair at
“It is time to go to your highest quality stock list or your own favorites to buy long. I’ll stick my neck out and say that tomorrow is probably the right day to start building long positions with no leverage or heavily weighted positions in sectors or in one stock. Tomorrow should be an outstanding opportunity for intraday trades on the long side and if the market drops early in the session, the bounce will even be more powerful. It is very likely we hit a multi-day bottom for an excellent opportunity for swing trades long.”
Stocks to consider buying long for intraday and/or intermediate long positions
*Starred and bold are favorite daily chart patterns.

The next day here is what happened with a few of the above list:
FSLR, First Solar opened at $90.01and four days later it reached $130.80 for a potential profit of 45%.

“There is too much risk to open a short position in any stock.
When any substantial bounce occurs, buying will occur so fast, you won’t
trust it until it has already moved up a lot in the same day or the next
day. Stay with the 3 min charts and toggle between 1, 3, 5, 15 minute
real time charts with your broker. But start gathering your highest quality stock list to buy if
or when we have a panic selling day to buy long on a swing (or less likely
an intermediate term position).”
The VIX peaked at 75 today but did not spike up suddenly,
it has been a gradual but steep climb. We would prefer a sharp vertical
spike in the VIX reading. SKF, the Ultrashort
Financials spiked and has formed a nice bullshort chart pattern but with
only slightly higher trading volume. This could go higher tomorrow.
The DJ-30, S&P-500, Nasdaq Composite daily charts show the move upward confirming that shorting stock would have been a big loss. This also confirms that the highest quality stock list to buy was the correct move.
The VIX moved up another 5.8% the next day. The next two days, SKF, Proshares Ultrashort Financials moved up another 81 points or a 36% potential profit in 2 days!
November 18, 2008
“It seems logical that eventually BIDU makes a move
upward but we can say the same for many stocks as well.”
The next day BIDU closes at $111.74 and 1 week later moves up $33 for a 29.6% potential profit
November 13, 2008
“Stock prices moved up so much off the bottom that it is likely
that we see some selling early and probably some buying will be attempted
but nothing close to what we saw today. Let’s face it, the
market has so much fear and turmoil that other people are thinking the
same thoughts what we are, to be close to the sell button. If the
market has a weak attempt at buying at the regular opening, we may see
another cascade of selling just like we saw yesterday. I’d
like to see a healthy continuation of the market going upward tomorrow
but I am a little skeptical about that happening considering we saw a big
move up late in the session. The Dow 30 ended up 552 points for today."
The Dow 30 dropped another 15.8% the following 6 trading days;
POT, Potash dropped 36% the following few weeks;
BIDU, Baidu dropped over $87 or 46%;
FSLR dropped 32%,
RIMM dropped 20%,
AAPL dropped 18%,
AMZN dropped 23%.

“It is more likely we see a very substantial bounce upward on stocks
in general and could start tomorrow after a negative opening.”
“Swing Trades: GS, Goldman Sachs is
most interesting as a long swing…..”
“BLK, Blackrock is an investment brokerage firm
and looks very interesting as a long purchase tomorrow.”
“SKF, Proshares Ultrashort Financials, moved up
11.5% today to close at $173.93. This was $112 last week.
We are also getting signs that this is close to peaking as well.”
“HIG and PRU continued downward today
but this is also shaping up to be a decent long position. I’d
be looking at PRU, Prudential close to $25 as a possible
long and HIG, Hartford, close to $9 before trying to buy
as a swing trade.”
Also keep alarms on FSLR triggered at $110 per share; this
stock along with many others could have an explosive move upward these
next couple of weeks.
“……. FCX, AXP, AAPL, TOL, and BAC all dropped below their previous support level so many stocks have become more dangerous with risk of lower lows!”
The next day, Dow 30 opened down -315 points and rebounded later that day 911 points or a 11.4% from the low to the high of the rebound. GS, Goldman Sachs hit a low of $61.05 the next day and rebounded to $69.99 for a 14.6% rebound upward. The very next day, BLK, Blackrock, had a low of $105.42 and rebounded up $13.58 to $119 or a gain of 12.9% that day. The next day SKF peaked at$195.51 and corrected over $48 for a potential profit of 32% on the short side. The next day PRU, Prudential dropped to a low of $20,14 and rebounded almost $7 for a potential profit of 34.1% that day alone. HIG, Hartford Life dropped below the $9 buy price to $8.62 and later that day rebounded to $10.90. HIG continued to move up another $2.97 to $13.87 for a total move up in 2 days of 60.9% potential profit. FSLR, First Solar dropped below the set alarm of $110 and dropped to $105.05, then rebounded over $22 for a potential profit in one day of 21.5%.
The following several weeks:
FCX, Freeport-McMoran, went from $22.56 to $15.64 for a 31% drop in stock price.
AXP, American Express dropped 17.7%;
AAPL, Apple Computer dropped 12.2%;
TOL, Toll Brothers dropped 24%;
BAC, Bank of America, dropped another 41%.

“Keep an alarm on HIG and PRU as they continue to move down more
today. This is shaping up to be a decent long position in the next couple
of days. I’d be looking at PRU, Prudential close to $25 as a possible
long and HIG, Hartford, close to $9 before trying to buy as a swing trade.”
“Other ideas: Make a note to yourself to keep watching YHOO, Yahoo,
put on alarms on the low price that may hit $10,$9,$8.50 etc.. The stock
is making new lows today after hitting $11.06 and closed at $11.35. At
some price, there is a good deal for MSFT as a buyer. “
“Also keep alarms on FSLR as it continues to drop, maybe wake you
up at $110 per share.”
HIG, Hartford Life, dropped to $8.63 two days later and rebounded to $13.86
in the following two days giving a 60% profit potential in the 4 day period
following the report.
YHOO, Yahoo, hit a low of $9.76 two days later and rebounded to $12.40
the following 5 days for a profit potential of 27%.
FSLR, First Solar dropped to $105.50 two days later and rebounded to $127.70 within 24 hours for a profit potential of 21%.
November 10th, 2008
“Look at GS, Goldman Sachs daily chart. This is my favorite chart
pattern for daily stock charts. I like the accelerated drop in price and
the increasing volume at the same time.”
“Keep an alarm on HIG and PRU as they continue to move down. This
could be a possible long position IF they continue to drop sharply and
quickly as they did 2 weeks ago.”
GS, Goldman Sachs, acted the way we wanted. It continued to drop further and gave us a good price and we got an excellent rebound of over $8 off the bottom of $66.70 and moved up 12%.
HIG, Hartford Life, dropped the following three days to $8.63 and rebounded to $13.86 for a 60% profit potential. PRU, Prudential Insurance, dropped to a low of $20.14 the following three days and rebounded to $27.88 for a profit potential of 38.4%.

“Day Traders/Intraday stock ideas: The drop and pop pattern that
we have been using on the intraday trades should work very well tomorrow
morning and I am looking for a strong bounce UP sometime tomorrow morning.
Tomorrow is NOT a day to be shorting either on an intraday or swing trade.
Tomorrow is the day to be covering your short positions. Look for the stocks
that came down the most the last 2½ days and those will likely give
us the most bounce tomorrow on an intraday long trade. There should be
an excellent drop and BIG pop tomorrow for intraday trades with AMZN, CNX,
BAC, WFC, AAPL, RIMM, FCL, ACI, GOOG, FSLR, MT, X, SNP, and WLT.”
“Remember to wait for a big drop and if this doesn’t happen,
shy away from this idea and other look for another stock chart that presents
a good setup. Don’t trade unless the setup is there for you, then
use the charts to tell you when the odds are heavily in your favor.”
“The VIX, Volatility Index moved back up 16.7% today to high of
64.78 today. I’d be looking for the VIX to drop starting tomorrow
as stocks should have a substantial tradable rebound upward.”

"It is very rare that I write you on The Daily Stock Picks Newsletter
[during the day] but I wrote you an email this morning at 712am Pacific
time, suggesting that you sell more of your long positions or at least
tighten up you’re your trailing stop losses. After 5-6 up days and
15-40% gains with most stocks (58-130% with the insurance stocks) I knew
there could be a long drop below so that is why I made a rare warning.
The tell tale sign was the big drop in 125 stocks I have on my watch list
and the rebound attempt that followed. I used that rebound to short stocks
that I was looking to short with the solar stocks as my first group to
short. I shorted SOLF, FSLR and LDK (because they were available to short)
at about 715am to 730am Pacific time. These stock picks on the short side
gave profits of over 15% today all the way to the end where I covered most
of that position except SOLF. I’ll try again early tomorrow morning
with this group as well as looking for the ag-chemical stocks (MOS, MON,
AGU, POT), coal (FCL, ACI), a couple of oil and gas stocks (GMXR, EOG)
and possibly the insurance companies (HIG, PRU, MET)."

“I think we have an excellent opportunity to make substantial profits
in stocks over the next 3-6 months. Stock prices may go down more
from here before they rebound but the odds are overwhelmingly in our favor
to start accumulating stocks and holding for those months. For those
of you who have learned to proficiently trade stocks intraday can profit
in this volatile market but the odds are the best to start accumulating
stocks for a longer time period.”
The stock market has been moving up for 4 consecutive days. Results are still pending.
October 22, 2008
“Several stock ideas that are getting interesting as a long position
fairly soon are: BLK, STT, PRU and
I still like PEP. It would be ideal to see further
selling in these first three stocks. Do some reading on these first
three stocks on your own so you know the issues that are driving them. BLK,
Black Rock, is an investment brokerage firm. This has gone down with
all of the financial-brokerage-bank stock’s sector. STT,
State Street is an investment company that manages large amounts of money
in various mutual funds they started.”
BLK, Blackrock had a low of $106.65 the next day and hit a high of $138.87 four days later for a 30% potential profit. STT, State Street Securities, had a low of $34.06 the next day and reached $44.43 five days later for a potential profit of 30%. PEP, Pepsi-cola, had a low of $51.06 the day after this report and moved up to $57.96 six days later for a 13.5% profit potential. These stocks are still climbing and will likely provide more profits in the coming weeks and months.

“I’m looking for some sort of tradable reversal in stocks
that will start an upward movement in stocks in general but heading back
up at a slower pace than what we saw on Friday, Monday and Tuesday’s
Next day’s report, October 16, 2008: the reversal that I was looking for came in at about 1130am pacific time. This was clearly a strong buy program that was making this move of a total of 800 points to close at the high of 8,879 today
