Today the following Nasdaq stocks did well with this strategy:
GOLD, DECK (but you have to be quick), DGIT, SGEN, EXPD, APOL, SWKS, CAVM, INTU (in afternoon), NTAP, PANL, ROST, AMGN, INFY, APKT, INFA, BMRN, CHRW, KLAC, GPOR, ACOM (if you are real quick), TIBX, FSLR

Lots of opportunity this week.
I wouldn't be able to tell. I'm spread betting with IGIndex and all the stocks are quoted on one system, so I don't think they have a distinction between the different exchanges.

Good trading over the last few days :-)

robocop started this thread Gonna call it a day. A string of losses in the morning, but get some of it back in the afternoon. Most of it by Garmin ;-).

Daysummary follows (but can take a while to make screenshots).

Difficult morning session, but a good day to trade the afternoon session.

I should have noted that the markets were consolidating in the morning and breakouts are then less likely to workout.

Learned much today!

Going to take a nap .
