On 4/5 you said:
Sell everything in the next two days. IBM's rally will die near 100. This is rare chance to sell into strength. Sell, sell, sell. Am I clear in expressing my opinion? SELL!!!!


As I write this, IBM is at 117 and climbing. That is a pretty hefty gain to miss out on.

On 4/4 you said:
Now IBM's next bottom can be figured the same way:
down 21 points (108 to 87)
up 13 point (87 to 100)
take 21 from 100=79 for next bottom
Again I have rounded off the numbers, but the next bottom should be near the old 79-80 support area.


The last "bottom" was around 96.

On 4/10, in a post entitled "Sell Everything, Rally is Ending Now" you said:
The market is topping--the Dow is over 10,000 and up more than 200 points. This is what I have been looking for at the top of this bear market rally. The "Amazing" AnOpt is never wrong [emphasis mine] in one of these calls so go long at you own risk. The only question is how high the market can go today. 10,200 intraday is my best guess. SELL, SELL, SELL!!!


Whoops! It hasn't closed below 10,000 since then. This seems like a pretty bad record for someone who is "never wrong on one of these calls".

To paraphrase a quote from a certain movie:
"You have just commited one of the two classic blunders! The first is never engage in a land war in Asia. The second, only slightly less well known, is never tangle with a Technical Analyst when money is on the line! HA! HA! HA! HA! *gaaccckkkk* (falls over dead broke)." [Free rec to whomever can identify the movie and character :) ]

In conclusion, take your worthless charts and head back to the Technical Analysis board where you belong. In any case, leave us Foolish investors alone.
