interesting term sentiment not sure I know what u mean...

Sentiment is a judgment, attitude or thought based upon ones feelings. In this case its VLO. At this time the markets feeling is definitely negative towards this stock. Looking at the weekly chart it appears this attitude (sentiment) surfaced towards the end of July. If I wanted to trace it back further it looks like a change was coming towards the end of April. Thats not saying there weren't some good trading opportunities between May and the end of July but the attitude towards VLO was definitely shifting towards a negative bias.

At this moment I don't subscibe to a charting service so I use the free charts at If you're interested I can tell you how to to set up the charts to better illustrate what I mean.

Where do u see support on the weekly chart???

Small area of support around 45-46 then the next level is around 40, which acted as support around June through August of 2005.

you mean a Tweezer Bottom???

I am not familiar with that term. Please explain.
