  • DrScience: $AA reports after the bell. Expect $CENX and $ARNC to move in sympathy.
  • champ: @woodman $ATI $TECK ---- Thanks, for the Heads-up...Yes, and has great potential and is going much higher....however, on $CLF... I have also been posting and the sector for around 50 days now. I'm also holding these positions in the sector....$X $AA $CENX $AKS $FCX $SID...take a look at $SID because they just raised their prices and $AKS, also raised their prices.. 2 times in the last 23 days.. and I have posts on all. Check-out my post on $CENX....when you have time.
  • DrScience: $ARNC touching the 30-level -- 30.69 is the high post-separation from $AA. Stock is extended on the daily chart, but 50 DMA should cross above the 200 DMA in the next week.
  • issues: @DrScience $ARNC $AA I think Cramer talked about $ARNC. Are you holding, buying or placing a precision stop? We hold AA and added.
  • Robert1965: $AA hit YH of 56.15
  • bRobert: $AA flag. Long leaps
  • champ: $AA----Out....took profits on the open
  • champ: @Robert1965 $CENX ---- Yes, I'm still hold this position.. for now but I did take profits on $AA this morning and will add back at some point. Looks like there is a little rotation going on, into Tech and that started yesterday. Many have been rotating into energy Energy positions and that started on 12/19 but really pick-up yesterday.
  • champ: $XME --- All the Metals are working and now my laggers are starting to OutPerforming...$AKS $CLF and $CENX is also still on the move and I'm still holding ...$X $AA $TECK $FCX $ATI ...I have these 8 positions in this...Hot sector. Need to try to be in the right sectors for #2018....until they turn.
  • Rasta: @champ $XME $AKS $CLF $CENX $X $AA $TECK $FCX $ATI #2018 I've held many of these dog Metal companies in 2017 and they are finally starting to turn, especially $FCX which i added to recently. I've also added $NXE as my uranium metal in 2018 this morning. See recent article from SeekingAlpha.
  • champ: @Rasta $XME $AKS $CLF $CENX $X $AA $TECK $FCX $ATI $NXE #2018 ---- Thanks...I just added to my #Watch-List...I will watch for entry...I forgot about this...but I'm out of bullets for now...until I start taking off positions....but I'm going to let most all reason to sell.
  • bRobert: $AA Another nh Long leap calls. Selling some premium against long.
  • champ: @Robert1965 $CENX ---- Yes, this is a keeper...along with $X $AA $TECK $ATI.... $AKS $CLF....I'm looking for a few of these laggers to perk-up also.
  • bRobert: $AA nh Vertical . Trailing stops raised
  • champ: $AA is also at a new ATH and should even keep moving up. I'm still holding all my metal positions...and $CENX still has room and this stock should move back-up to its 2015 high @ 25-$31 because the Economy is extremely strong and the Trump team in right on top of the Dumping that China...#Was doing....not much anymore is the News. The same for $X and the others. I'm holding 7 positions, in this sector. $XME ...This sector is much easier than the energy sector. Its working and rotation is happening... and will even get stronger, as the late investor take new positions, after they realize that this sector is working, then the dumb $$$ will move-in....this is going to be a strong sector for 2018.
  • bRobert: $AA $FCX $STLD $X $XME Not a one day wonder. Long calls
  • champ: @stairm01 $CLF ---- Started turning in early December....I have a position and started posting on this sector turn on 12/6. I'm holding these stocks in this sector...$X $AKS $AA $CENX $ATI $TECK $CLF.
  • champ: $AA $CENX both up over 6% ...going to swing my full positions again.
  • bRobert: @champ $AA $CENX Reflation
  • indigo1948: @champ $CLF $X $AKS $AA $CENX $ATI $TECK -holding CLF and entering AKS.
  • bRobert: $AA Squeeze bo continues . $XME nh
  • GOOSE: @bRobert $AA $XME Is that "bo" for buyout?????
  • champ: $CENX @ $16.60 up over 4% HOD ---- I double my position size this morning, by adding a new trading position....because this stock is still about 25% below YTDH and $AA is only 10% below. I'm still holding both....and $X $ALK but at this time, for now...I like Aluminum better than Steel but tomorrow I might like Steel better.
  • Gary: ...
    2. $AA – pop
    3. $STLD – continuation of November squeeze. Now in phase
    4. $FCX – If you’re not long...don’t be! If you are, use a trailing stop.
    5. $RIOT – tweezer top.
    6. $ROKU – tired.
    7. $TSLA --= this ...
  • champ: $AA @ $44.24 up $1.60 ----- Sector is turning off the News...$X $ATI $AKS $CENX ...a few of us in the forum have been posting about this sector turn...@GOOSE @bRobert and others. These are my positions that I have been position about.
  • GOOSE: TRADES: $AA STO 12/29/17 46.0 CALLS @.30 $EGBN STO 1/19/18 55.0 PUTS @1.00, an add to the 60.0 puts. EDITED
  • GOOSE: TRADES: $AA STO 12/29/17 ATM 43.0 PUTS @.95 $CSX STO 1/19/18 50.0 PUTS @1.01 @Bridget's suggestion, Thank you B.
  • bRobert: $AA Squeeze right shoulder/flag. Target 46+ when triggered
  • GOOSE: A TRADE: $AA 12/22/17 STO 41.5 PUTS @.50
  • bRobert: $FCX . $ATI . $AA perky XME club
  • champ: $AA @ $42.25 & $ATI @ $23.25 --- Both are on the move....#NewPositions for the same reasons as $X....the U.S. has launch anti-dumping cases against the Chinese.....and that includes Aluminum products also. $ATI is special metals...stainless steel, titanium.....but they have a long list of products, take a look. Customers are $BA and many others. I posted on this sector...$X...and a few others. I'm holding $X $AKS $ATI $AA, these are my picks but there are others, I'm a little diversity, with these names. Like all stock positions, the markets must work or hold around this level $DJI..24,350. $ATI is on..Day 3 off the recent low and $AA is on Day 2 ....both RHRN...not really late but they will zig-zag. $X really started on 11/14 but on this Budget extension low was on 12/5 this is more or less Day 4. Take a look....
  • bRobert: $AA Target $53 . Not necessarily straight up
  • champ: $CENX $15.50 up over 10%. ----- #NewPosition off of your post....because this is strong, with above average volume, off of that news that I posted about this morning with $AA. Looks like it has been consolidating for the last 60 days and this is Day 3 off the recent low....after a good size drop. Great-Set on Day 3 ..bouncing off the low on News.

  • GOOSE: @debeers $AA Thank you for that info, and the personal Mom. ;>)
  • issues: @GOOSE $AA added and placed a stop strategically at a few points below. Looks like a flag flying at 1/2 mast. Well not really 1/2 mast more like 1/5 mast. This pull back is just right for me.
  • GOOSE: #TRADES: $AA STO 9/29/17 43.0 PUTS @.30 $AAOI BTC 9/22/17 53.50 PUTS @.30 BTO @1.09 $EFX STO 9/22/17 89.0 PUTS @1.32 Delta .28 The devil made me do it. Minimum contracts at present,, may add as time goes by. Volume acceptable, tapering off. 5 day trade. Hey what can go wrong? ;>)

  • issues: Today was a buy day for me. Bought the following partial positions: $OSUR $BRKS $EW $AA $SQ $EXTR $VEEV. Sold short $EFX and holding. It's going to the bottom. Buy stop is a trailing stop at 3% ($114).
  • GOOSE: $AA Any idea why $AA is down all of a sudden?
  • PhilHarmonic: @GOOSE $AA The $XME is down quite a bit. It's a bad day for the metals.
  • GOOSE: @PhilHarmonic $AA $XME Thank you for your reply. Have a great weekend. GOOSE
  • champ: @GOOSE $AA ---- I have it right in front of me and I can't find anything either and I posted this morning that all metals are down...I have been watching all.....but I will make a guess and say its CopyCat traders selling metal stocks....because they want to move into #Hurricane trades or stocks that are working....its hard just to sit back and watch all of these stocks move up like they are and the higher they climb, the harder it is to take a position....this is what Traders/Investors wait years for and many are hit and run and out.
  • GOOSE: @champ $AA #Hurricane Champ, Thanks for answering. I appreciate it. Have a great weekend. GOOSE
  • champ: @GOOSE $AA #Hurricane --- #Anytime
  • gig1: @champ $AA #Hurricane #Anytime Fall back in China exports overnight is causing fall in metals. Happened in Europe before here today.
  • champ: @gig1 $AA #Hurricane #Anytime --- OK ...thats it...Thanks!
  • gig1: @champ $AA #Hurricane #Anytime You're very welcome!
  • GOOSE: A TRADE: A ROLL OUT $AA BTC 9/4/17 44.0 PUTS @1.70 $AA STO 9/15/17 44.0 PUTS @1.83 .13 Credit
  • GOOSE: TRADES: $AA STO 9/8/17 45.0 CALLS @.25 Expires in 2 days. $AA STO 9/15/17 46.0 CALLS @.30 These 2 trades balance off my short PUTS, so no margin usage. EDITED: SHOULD BE PUTS NOT CALLS.
  • champ: $AA @ $43.60 HOD and ATH --- Here's another nice chart. This sector is working but this is also another one in the sector, that I'm holding. Could keep climbing and might even BreakOut, even more, on this slow move higher. No losers in this stock. Institutions hold 75% and theirs really no reason for them to sell. Another nice stock, that just keeps slowly climbing, with the market.
  • GOOSE: A NEW TRADE, for me anyway. $AA STO 9/15/17 43.5 PUTS @.52 $AA STO 9/8/17 44.0 PUTS @.30
  • gig1: $AA Working well. Thank you Dan for this one!
  • DAN: @gig1 $AA Nice job, gig1. Love it!!
  • Bobbie: $AA, Is this a stock that is in early innings of a run up? If so, what inning do you think it's in? I don't want to ride it down. Any ideas on an exit plan would be appreciated.
  • issues: @Bobbie $AA No earning aren't until Oct 18th. This is not an earnings run up. It's because metals - gold silver aluminum are going up. Inflation? Who knows. We hold a small position. It's too high to buy. Wait for pull back to around $39.
  • DAN: $XAL $JBLU $UAL $AA $LUV -- the airline stocks are rebounding this morning. It's a sector-wide shift. If you are looking for short term swing trades...perhaps into Monday using an intraday bar timeframe (flip between 15- and 30-minute timeframes), ...
