Chartsy started this thread no new trades this week. Some very nice setups occurring in the energy sector but I'm already long two of those (AEP XEL)


Edit: placing a buy limit on LMT at 276.8, stop 269.15

Chartsy started this thread some great moves this week. Some sectors are trending parabolically. The basis of this method is that, under certain market conditions , it's better to buy into momentum rather than trying to time a reversal or pullback which always seems the more comfortable approach .
