  • indigo1948: $SQ - a great holding stock - it just continues its grind up to $70.00.
  • Junior1: @indigo1948 $SQ shhhh. you jinxed it
  • RedLeaf1: 52 week highs this morning: $AMZN $FB $SQ $NFLX
  • grcjr: (was looking at $SQ, not $IQ) Re $SQ, I'm seeing it opened above yesterday's close, moved up after the open, dropped back a bit to test and is coming back toward the high of the day. Running up the upper BB. New all time high. I bought a bit more Monday. Thought about adding more near the open today.
  • CoyoteDuster: $SQ added to position at 64.88
  • JBed: $SQ back in below $64.
  • BobbyG: $SQ Still posting new highs. Tightening stops
  • RedLeaf1: $AMZN $FB $SQ $ADSK new 52-wk highs
  • BobbyG: $SQ Still getting a bid. Here is the news.
  • tjv821: @kiss of death I will be buying $box $iq $sq tomorrow by the close. Book any profits bf then tj
  • Junior1: $SQ Obligatory daily comment... another ATH
  • indigo1948: @Junior1 $SQ - like the way it keeps grinding upward - small pullbacks give opportunities to add.
  • Spotdog: $SQ looking to move to NH
  • CHOFF: @Allen $SQ is stuck on 62.05 even though price action is at 62.76. Very frustrating that the charts are not keeping up.
  • Allen: @CHOFF $SQ I can follow it on my phone tos platform but the computer platform still isn't working for some tickers. The quotes are refreshing now, but the charts aren't working.
  • CHOFF: @Allen $SQ - thanks....it's very frustrating but at least the price are showing up.
  • Junior1: #TOS I'm afraid to trust the feed. Shows $SQ trading at $63.82 with hod @ $63.66
  • BobbyG: $SQ Wow somehow I missed this. Took profits on the 7th.
  • Junior1: @BobbyG $SQ SQ is a hodl'ing stock, much like $AAPL
  • JBed: @Junior1 $SQ #TOS Don't fear the feed! It's back at HOD.
  • infocus: @Junior1 $SQ #TOS It's 63.88 now on my screen. Now 63.98.
  • indigo1948: @Junior1 $SQ $AAPL - in agreement - have been holding along with $AAPL and it has steady momentum - not one to attempt to trade in and out of unless you are very quick and live at your screen all day.
  • BobbyG: @Junior1 $SQ $AAPL To each their own. SQ is an option playing stock for me, but congratulations :)
  • Junior1: @BobbyG $SQ yes, I agree. I too trade options, around the core.
  • woodman: $SQ - bounce on 8dEMA.
  • grcjr: $SQ moving nicely
  • JBed: $SQ new ATH
  • Junior1: @JBed $SQ Thought the meteoric rise was slowed yesterday. Sold calls... too soon, we'll see what happens. I may have to roll out and up.
  • indigo1948: $SQ - continues an upward grinding move
  • BocaRick: @indigo1948 $SQ also $PYPL crossed a $84.1 BP
  • Junior1: $SQ A monster of a stock! Been holding off on selling upside calls. Looks like I need to hold off even longer. ATH and blue skies!
  • BobbyG: $SQ Blue Skies
  • BobbyG: $SQ $60.00 Price alert.
  • captron: $SQ trying to punch through into blue sky.
  • bsafriet: $SQ $AAOI $DOCU $SMAR $HTHT
  • RedLeaf1: $MSFT and $SQ hitting 52-wk highs today. Holding full positions in long term account.
  • BobbyG: $SQ Flirting with blue skies.
  • Gary: ...
    • Active traders – don’t hold too many stocks at one time b/c you won’t be able to build a BIG position in any of them. By definition, your pie has too many slices in it.
    • Your stocks are up. But are they the right sto ...
  • indigo1948: $SQ - nice move today - approaching 52 week high.
  • RedLeaf1: @jeffslm $GS I bailed on my long term position (opened 1.5 years ago) today 'cause I just can't watch it go further into the red. I am looking for something in fin tech instead to get exposure to the financials. Maybe $SQ or $PYPL. I think Cramer recommended a credit card payment processing stock recently.
  • BocaRick: @RedLeaf1 $GS $SQ $PYPL $V and $MA no relief
  • Junior1: $SQ BTC covered calls (Tomorrow's 55.0) for half the potential. Catching a litttle vig in the LT accts. On the next strong up day, will sell calls again. In the trading acct, STO September 55.0 Puts @ 5.45
  • Kristine: @BobbyG $SQ - Another 3% :)
  • grcjr: $SQ up almost 4% so far today.
  • BobbyG: @grcjr $SQ I moved my stops up, but I like the chart here. ATH is getting close.
  • grcjr: @BobbyG $SQ - ATH level might be resistance. Might test it more than once. I like what I'm seeing with the various strength indicators. Also running up near the upper BB. But I'm not adding at this point. Will add on break to new ATH. Stops set for now.
  • BobbyG: $SQ Still moving. A few more points to go before it hits its ATH. Still holding June 50 calls, making the leash tighter.
  • BobbyG: $SQ breaking 55. There is some gas left in the tank.
  • indigo1948: @BobbyG $SQ - holding a full position - resistance appears to be $57.80.
  • woodman: $SQ - continuing up.
  • Spotdog: @woodman $SQ Added yesterday. It continues to be a good trade
  • BobbyG: $SQ making another nice move after being down early.
  • stairm01: $SQ up over 2%. Holding June calls from April 24 drop. Thanks to CHAMP for bring this to my attention.
  • BobbyG: @stairm01 $SQ Nice. May add to position after lunch if this holds.
  • stairm01: $SQ Just screamed up over the 3% daily mark on high volume over the last 5 min candlestick
  • bnnybklyn: @stairm01 $SQ right in the middle of the Keltner channel on the weekly - long
  • woodman: @stairm01 $SQ - I bought this morning and have added twice.
  • issues: Sold $LGIH (bearish engulfing pattern) bought oil with Iran spigot turned off $WLL $CRZO $SQ $WRD $LGCY
  • Gary: ...
    1. $NFLX – “buy all you want” in WU. Weekly chart shows it’s extended...but it IS being bought.
    2. $AAPL – Horrible buy point here. Stock is overbought. Investors – give it a rest.
    3. $NVDA – going to new ...
  • Forexpro: @steve71 $AMZN $V $MA $SQ $PYPL Thanks, Steve71, Here's a summary of Bernstein's take (via Theflyonthewall.com): "Bernstein analyst Harshita Rawat notes that Bloomberg reported that Amazon (AMZN) is offering discounts to merchants to adopt Amazon Pay. While the analyst sees limited "new news," he believes that Amazon poses a long-term, risk to PayPal (PYPL). Regarding impact on Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA), Rawat does believe Amazon brings some risk of brand obfuscation, pricing pressure and yet another formidable payment wallet to contend with. However, the risk is more contained than is often perceived, he adds." Need to wait for confirmation, but it may be getting close to a bounce. Hope you're doing well. All the best!
  • antfarm: $SQ Making an earnings run. Reports after the close. Banging on resistance at the 50dma. FD Small position which I am debating on dumping.
  • antfarm: $SQ Stopped out of half my position @ 48.72.
  • steve71: $AMZN $V $MA $SQ $PYPL "Reports are that Amazon plans to offer retailers some discounts if they adopt Amazon Pay, which takes a number of processors' shares lower." - Real Money Amazon may put a big hurt on the payment processors. Probably a majority of Amazon payments are processed with a bank card or PayPal. But I wonder if any drop in Square is a collateral damage opportunity. $SQ is much more point-of-sale than online. Their big profit item is loans to their merchant group.
  • grcjr: $AMZN $INTC $$AAPL $SQ Some of the tickers reporting earnings soon 4/26 after the close $AMZN $INTC 5/1 after the close $AAPL 5/2 after the close $SQ
  • Junior1:
  • bsafriet: @Junior1 $SQ My stop got hit this morning. I don't think you want to be in it now. You can always BUT IT BACK.
  • Danzguy: @Junior1 $SQ Where is your stop placed? Tom Petty says its 'Free Falling'.
  • BocaRick: @Danzguy $SQ I got stopped out below the 50MA. The February dip was down to $37?
  • optionswealth: @Junior1 $SQ I got out yesterday near the end of the day because it was not acting the way I expected or the way the charts were telling me to expect. Three days ago the move up was rejected and that put me on alert for yesterday, which didn't end well. With earnings on 5/2 I thought it would be working its way upward. It had moved above the the 50 and 20 but then the upper bollinger band acted as resistance. When I looked at the MACD it was moving up but the move was not a big move. Where it will find support from here is hard to know. The averages are down today and the MACD on all three is moving down, showing weakness. It seems that less support for tech is showing up in this weakness.
  • BobbyG: $SQ Making another nice move up after an inside day. Calls are working, but tightening my stops a bit.
  • optionswealth: @BobbyG $SQ Yep, I held through yesterday after entering on Wednesday. The chart looks good and not down much yesterday. This morning is making up for yesterday and moving beyond on a slightly down tape day.
  • rverkamp30: @optionswealth $SQ Would you be adding RHRN?
  • champ: @BobbyG $SQ @ $52 ---- Tech stocks are all hard to hold...but I posted the other day, that this stock could hit $55...in the short term, that was my guess and when the markets turn, this could bounce even more....and there is a little news today about M&A....they acquire Zesty and it looks like the market, is thinking that is positive for the stock...I'm still holding.
  • BobbyG: @champ $SQ Earnings are May 2nd. I am playing calls because volatility is starting to trickle up. I agree with the 55 target, but I am happy here if it doesn't make it. Tight stops now.
  • optionswealth: @rverkamp30 $SQ Monday is often an up day, at least first thing in the morning as a rebound from today. It remains to be seen, of course. It has held in there strong today. So, in this market, I wouldn't add because of the weekend. I would look at it Monday.
  • optionswealth: $SQ I like how it ended the day.
  • optionswealth: @BobbyG $SQ Same here. Take a look at your MACD which is still rising and more to go. I'm watching the strength of the MACD for the next few days. Earnings are on 5/2, which is a catalyst. $AXP, a processor, had good earnings. $V reports on 4/25 and ...
  • optionswealth: @grcjr $AXP Helping $SQ & $MA move up from the low this morning, also. I didn't look at $V chart.
  • BobbyG: $SQ Also like this one holding above 50. Holding for a potential run into earnings.
  • BobbyG: $SQ hanging out above the 20 DMA for the first time in a while. Starting a position.
  • champ: $SQ still working on News...Day-2 on this move... posted yesterday.
  • champ: $SQ @ $51....#News is now coming out at briefing ...they are actually buying the stock...on BriefingTrader...RHRN...just posted at 12:11 ET...I just added...my target is still $55 ..short term...the stock is still 20%...under/off the March high
  • captron: @champ $SQ #News I saw a $65 target the other day on Market Watch. Profits were tied to Bitcoin or something like that.
  • woodman: $SQ makings of a run into earnings. I've been re-accumulating down here at the 50 day-ish
  • Gary: ...
    COTD: $BBX – squeeze scan entry yesterday. Exit this morning below $10.
    $SPX – bull/bear push.
    $DJI – top of range and due for rest. IBM hurt the Dow today, AXP will help tomorrow.
    $DJT – up today on strong numbers from CSX ...
  • optionswealth: @woodman $SQ Took a little at the close. It had a good move today. It is now above the 50 and sits on the 20 day sma. The MACD has turned upward and everything is just at/moving above the zero line so if the overall market stays green we should have a good move RHRN. Earnings on 5/02 after market close and following pre earnings moves, they seem to be happening later, not this far out. AXP reported after hours and is up 3.3%. Usually this moves all these processors in anticipation that they will have similar results. After all that, the only comment I can make is that I hope the market continues upward tomorrow and SQ continues to have traders wanting in.
  • champ: $SQ @ $49.30 --- This is a strong move this morning....mostly all buyers...not many sellers....could have a fast move back to $55...if the markets hang-in...I have a position.
  • BobbyG: @champ $SQ It keeps failing at the 20 DMA. If it breaks I'm in!
  • Junior1: @champ $SQ Largest position that I have in LT accounts. Hodl'g. I keep selling upside premium... better than a dividend stock... by far.
  • Workinman: @Junior1 $SQ I'm doing the same thing you are with $SQ.
  • champ: @Junior1 $SQ ---- If the markets are turning and I posted over the weekend that I believe they will because of earnings....my guess is, if that happens... this stock could move back up to around $55, real soon...maybe even by the end of the week....but it is all about the markets. Good Luck!
  • martyrb3: @champ $SQ I'm in too. BUT...did see this yesterday. Thomson Reuters/Verus downgrades SQUARE INC from HOLD to SELL.
  • spmeyers: $SQ making a move
  • Junior1: $SQ Bearish engulfing on the daily
  • issues: Maybe I'm a slow learner but I still like $ANET $SQ $BZUN $WB $TAL & $FAS... I am holding these and will wait for a green day to add. I just don't understand why folks would be throwing the baby out with the water. Maybe some of the Big Boys are thrashing ANET making it a "broken stock". This could be a strong reversal but it bounced before.
  • Beaver: @issues $ANET $SQ $BZUN $WB $TAL $FAS Kind of feel the same way about several of these stocks. Please pass any good/bad responses along. Thx
  • issues: @Beaver $ANET $SQ $BZUN $WB $TAL $FAS Are you putting any stops in place?
  • nestorsch1: @issues $ANET $SQ $BZUN $WB $TAL $FAS I feel the same way. I placed a stop quite low and I was kicked out any way, who would have imagined a 9% reversal? But I must say that I tend to chase the stock and I don’t want to continue doing that. I tried twice with $ANET and got kicked out badly. I don’t know what to do and if it merits coming in again...
  • BobbyG: $SQ Making another nice move. I like this here above the 50 DMA. Small call position with a tight leash.
  • woodman: $SQ - I bought it last Thursday. It dipped the next day but held long term rising support. It's looking decent here ... or at least looking like it is done pulling back.
