Can You Short Bitcoin?
about 1 year ago by Jeff Carter @ Points and Figures

The exchange part of Bitcoin has always been sort of the wild west to me.  No standardization.  No real regulation.  Most of the big time trading is done bilaterally.  DRW’s Cumberland Mining in Chicago is the center of the universe …

My friend Eddy summed up the obnoxiousness of the constant Bitcoin chatter: I can take a hint! Let’s move on to the market today…that boring place where people try to beat the S&P. Josh Brown has a good post up today explaining that a strong secular bull market may be just starting. Here is the chart that has gotten many of the technical people I trust all excited: In short – the median stock is now in a secular rise.

Now Accepting PayPal for Annual Subscriptions
about 1 year ago by TraderMike @ SwingTradeBot

Recently I've had an increase in people asking me if they could pay for a subscription with PayPal. These requests have increased since I started the non-USA versions of the site and folks from around the world are subscribing.  In some cases people don't feel comfortable entering their credit card info and in other cases their banks won't allow them to pay in USD.  So to address those concerns I've decided to start accepting PayPal for annual subscriptions.  It's just annual subscriptions for now because this will be a manual process until I can get some time to fully integrate PayPal with the automated subscription handling built into the site.  Instructions for paying via PayPal are on the subscriptions prici...

Nasdaq Tags Channel Resistance
about 1 year ago by (Declan Fallon) @ Fallond Picks

The post-Thanksgiving recovery offered some modest profit taking with Semiconductors experiencing the worst of the selling but the Nasdaq tagging resistance before reversing.  It offered the clearest 'sell'/profit take trigger after the August support 'buy' signal. Given action in other indices it could break above resistance, accelerating gains, but taking some profits here would be prudent.The Semiconductor Index is in need of a more orderly pullback. Since the September breakout i...

A Big Change to Alerts / Scans...
about 1 year ago by TraderMike @ SwingTradeBot

You may notice today that you're seeing more alerts listed for a stock than before.  That's because I've made a pretty significant change to some things behind the scenes.  By sort of an accident of evolution (let's call it), there have always been two classes of alerts (scans / signals) on the site.  Old timers will remember that they were listed separately. They used to be called "Individual Pattern Scans" and "Advanced Scans".

4 Low Price-To-Book Value Stocks Worth Considering
about 1 year ago by Zacks @ Benzinga Technicals

Given the recent runup, value analysis is increasingly gaining prominence in identifying stocks at great values. Price to earnings (P/E) and price to sales (P/S) are the first ratios to hit an investor's mind while looking for undervalued stocks. However, the underrated price-to-book ratio (P/B ratio) is also an easy-to-use valuation tool for identifying low-priced stocks with exceptional returns. The P/B ratio is calculated as below: P/B ratio = market capitalization/book value of equity What is Book Value There are several ways by which book value can be defined. Book value is the total value that would be left over, according to the company's balance sheet, if it goes bankrupt immediately. In other words, this is what shareholders would theoretically receive if a company liquidates all its ...

about 1 year ago by ETF Professor @ Benzinga Short Trading Ideas

On the back of oil's rebound, the often volatile SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF (NYSE: XOP) is sporting a fourth-quarter gain of just over 20 percent with half of that surge coming just since the start of November. Even amid the recent bullishness emanating from the oil patch, some options traders are preparing for a pullback, one of the most widely followed equity-based energy exchange traded funds among professional traders. “We have seen some action in both the 34.50 and 33 strikes in XOP December puts, reflective of caution in the sector as this ETF has recently found support on its 200 day MA in the past couple ...Full story available on<img src="
