  • 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), ...
  • Vehid: @DAN $XAL $JBLU $UAL $AA $LUV Which one is your fav?!
  • issues: @DAN $AA The chart for AA and GOL look best to me. But NP looks even better. Maybe the airlines are rallying because end of summer usually means oil prices go down in the fall, hence less expense for airlines. Also as oil fades, oil refiners do better. ($DK $VLO $ANDV $PARR $CVRR $HFC...)
  • champ: $AA ....Out.... this morning and I moved those $$$$ into $OSB and $GVA.
  • DAN: @Vehid $XAL $JBLU $UAL $AA $LUV $JBLU would be my favorite....thought $LUV works too. But opinions vary .... --DAN
  • DAN: @issues $AA $DK $VLO $ANDV $PARR $CVRR $HFC I agree with you about $GOL, issues. I was just looking at the tickers in Vehid's question. But GOL is the best of the bunch. It's been holding while the domestics have been falling.
  • champ: $TECK and $AA both still working...for now....on a down day. Hard sector but not all that bad if you target the right names.....I'm holding both.
  • woodman: @champ $TECK $AA - I have $FCX and $VALE on the same theory.
  • champ: $AA @ $41 HOD up over 3% for flow has been really positive.
  • bRobert: $XME $X . $AA $TECK . $GLD $GDX Strong bounce XME and related components. Long FCX. Adding to GLD GDX
  • audrina0904: @bRobert $XME $X $AA $TECK - Largest holding in $XME is $ to see if it can break through the 200dma...If it does, should see nice gains and more $XME appreciation.
  • issues: Bought $ATHN (Stop $138) & $ULTA (stop at $250) and added to $WDC & $AA!
  • issues: When I looked over my holding this weekend I wrote to myself to sell the following: (e= earnings) $PANW (break down) $AA (topping?) $ABBV (IBD accum A to D+) $MTDR (e 8/2) $SPR (e 8/2) $ETSY (e 8/3) $MTSI (e 8/1) $WLDN (e 8/8) But my problem is I just can't pull the trigger to sell any of them. I put in stops and even bought more AA & ABBV. Now you see why I'm a member of SMM Anonymous. I really appreciate the input I get from you all! It's helps me stay in when I should be out, right?
  • phgruver: @issues $PANW $AA $ABBV $MTDR $SPR $ETSY $MTSI $WLDN I can sympathize. I have a number of issues that I've held for years, that I can't seem to part with. (FWIW, you should have ditched the first 3 days ago, but the others still show some promise....)
  • Bridget: #Notes: earnings moves today: $QCOM $KMI - gap and run down $AXP $PM $AA - unchanged $BX - down a little $SNA - bearish engulfing candle $ABT - breakout $CHKP - gap down $XLE - small pullback today $XLV $XBI - breaking out $GILD - moving higher after flag, expected move to $77 $JNJ - back up to highs $JAZZ - trying to breakout breakouts: $ABBV $FIZZ - phase 3 $THC - day 2 $RCL - new high $AGN - almost holding above $250 $MTSI - nice volume today $ESIO $HIMX - day 2 $HD $LOW - down on news $AKCA - #ipo on a tear $RACE - hitting $100 earnings after close: $V $MSFT $ISRG $EBAY $SLB
  • Sher: @JBed $CENX - $AA reports A/C - Hopefully that will set the stage for further gains in the industry - I've been in and out of $CENX a few times - Currently long Sept. $17 calls and will likely be adding into their ER, 8-1-17 - Projections are pretty explosive-looking...
  • Sher: $AA - $.04 beat on earnings, revenues in-line, narrows FY17 guidance - Stock down 2.5% AH - NP in $AA, but have multiple positions in $CENX & $FCX, so was looking for a strong earnings kick-off.

    New long call positions: $FEYE – Aug. $16 &nda ...

  • issues: $AA reports tonight. Considering selling my small position. Anyone else?
  • GOOSE: @issues $AA Hi, Did you see my reply to your query the other day?
  • issues: @GOOSE $AA Yes thank you Dr Goose. I always read you posts. How's your mom?
  • Sher: $BX - Rocking... Lovingly long Aug. $33 calls... $EEM - Back in Aug. calls, but this time at the $43 strike. $AUPH - Ha! My July $7.50 call position is up 500% - Have added, here & there, in a "bail water" fashion - Calls hit an AT low of $.02 on 7-11-17, so was expecting them to expire worthless on Fri. - They've regained Nasdaq listing compliance, but don't think that's solely responsible for today's 11-12% gains. $EEM – STC Aug. $42.50 calls, 37% gain - Anticipating PB, here. Metal ERs: $AA (Wed., A/C), CENX (chged. to 8/2/17, AC), $FCX (7/25/17, B/O) – Exuberant expectations for all - Long Sept. $CENX & Aug. $FCX calls.
  • DAN: @Sher $BX $EEM $AUPH $AA $FCX $CENX Nice move on $AUPH. Big winner today!! 8-) Ka Ching!!
  • Bridget: Notes: Of course the news of the day was AMZN WFM. Stocks affected: $KR $SFM $COST $WMT $TGT $SYY $CVS $WBA. All seem to have found a bottom. I sold puts on $KR $TGT and $WMT seeing this move as overdone. Infrastructure / equipment trades are working: $DE $CAT $IR $PAYC - new 52 week high $PI - break higher $HIIQ - breakout $CTAS - breaking higher $CVNA - #ipo working $MO - working $MMM - working $JNJ - working $CI - working $MDSO - at a good buy point $AA - breaking down $ARLP - breaking down $BGS - breaking down Have a great weekend!
  • Bridget: ...
    $AAOI $LITE - starting its next move higher
    $D - breaking out
    $XLU $DUK - breaking out
    $BX - huge Saudi deal, gap and run, this could go much higher.
    $FISV - working, breakout
    $AA - building a base here, squeeze candidate
    $ZBRA - new all time high
    $ ...
  • DrScience: ...
    PRICE ACTION: Shares of most companies related to the industrial metals group are all sharply down, with U.S. Steel ($X) down 9.3%, Nucor ($NUE) falling 3.65%, and AK Steel ($AKS) down 6.2%. Aluminum names are also falling, with Alcoa ($AA) down 3.3 ...
  • judysteiner: $TGTX gapping up on positive phase 3 studies for Leukemis....$NFLX UBS Raises pt.....$AA upgraded to buy at GS
  • DAN: @judysteiner $TGTX $NFLX $AA Hard to fade a positive Phase 3 study result. Like standing in front of a nail gun being held by a guy who doesn't like you, and who has drank way too much coffee.
  • issues: @woodman $XME Don't let metal test your mettle. We also have $XME and are holding it longer term. We also have $AA (not the batteries) and $VALE (great for skiing) mid term.
  • woodman: $CENX and $AA were my Trump Speech Rally targets to buy before close yesterday. The only problem is that I didn't pull the triggers.
  • issues: @woodman $CENX $AA I also wanted to buy more $AA but was swayed by Dan's not buying anything here. I need to listen to my own mind and just do it! Right! You are so right. There were others like $MU $TELL $HCLP $AMD I also wanted to buy but didn't.
  • bigbartabs: @woodman $CENX $AA ... pulling the trigger yesterday... I was too busy deciding if I needed to lighten up, rather than adding.
  • woodman: @bigbartabs $CENX $AA - I had a pretty strong gut feeling that at least certain stocks would move strongly today following the address, but I just didn't convince myself to buy on that basis.
  • issues: I bought a starter of $APC at $68.92 and realized I bought too early. Now do I put in a stop of let it fall to the 50 day? Dan would say it's ok since it's still above the 50 day. Another similar ones with the same starter now dropping would be $CVX (purchase price PP= $114) $EOG (PP $101) and $AA (PP $31.44). Someone might ask why I bought them. Well, for the oil season coming this spring. Then the answer would be, then why stop out now? Good conversation with myself. Thanks self. You're welcome! I better up my meds... oh no!
  • chucklk: @chucklk $CENX... Noting that $AA also down significantly so maybe an aluminum event as well as earnings for cenx.
  • TD: $AA - Weekly bearish engulf, weekly reversal at $40, first bust of the 20 day in weeks, still lots of room to the downside.
  • DrScience: $AA aluminum stocks still defying gravity. $AA new high after earnings yesterday. $ARNC moving to new high, earnings report 1/3. $CENX pausing, earnings 2/16.
  • Bridget: ...
    $ARNC - this split off on $AA is also reaching a new all time high along with AA
    $MLM $VMC - construction stocks still roaring higher on news of the "wall"
    $XLI - we could be seeing big gains in this sector with the new administration's po ...
  • rokey: @DAN Also $AA Dan.
  • bwcarnation1: @woodman $NUE $X $AKS $XME yes they are all moving including $AA
  • mopick: @rokey $AA breaking out today.
  • issues: I got stopped out of $TSRO at $142.40 and $RTN $145.76 small profits in both. Still holding $CLNS $CLVS $VALE & $AA. I wonder about that $TQQQ dropping it's price in half- 72 points. What's that all about?
  • issues: @sierramp $CLVS $CSTM $IRDM $RTN $TSRO Thanks for your post. I posted this above: I got stopped out of $TSRO at $142.40 and $RTN $145.76 small profits in both. Still holding $CLNS $CLVS $VALE & $AA. I wonder about that $TQQQ dropping it's price in half- 72 points. What's that all about?
  • sierramp: @issues $TSRO $RTN $CLNS $CLVS $VALE $AA $TQQQ Thanks re: $TSRO, $TQQQ = split.
  • rokey: $AA another stock moving against the current, so far today!
  • champ: $SPX - Really strong markets today....especially going into the close with $1.3b or so in in new buy orders. My guess is that... this is Institutional buying or adding to positions. However, the markets and stocks are really zig-zagging but we could ...
  • issues: $AA knocking at the door of the 50 day. What to do? What to do? We hold half a position and are looking to add. Will wait to see if we get a bounce. This has been a great stock, so it shouldn't go down until after the first. Why sell and pay taxes?? Right?
  • StockMarketMentor: A Price Alert has been triggered for $AA Alcoa Corporation. Click here to view associated video clip:
  • DrScience: $AA seems to have not gotten the downgrade memos from Citigroup and Deutsche Bank. The stock is 30 cents away from the adjusted post-split price ($31.20) after separation from $ARNC.
  • Gary: ...
    14. $AA – Alert $32.20

    15. $AMZN – bottom looks like it’s in…but still not working.
    16. $GOOGL – choppy, but base is building.
    17. $FB – unfriend.
    18. $NFLX – sloppy
    19. $HPE – working!

    20. $CENX ...
  • issues: @Bridget $TJX Bridget we sold $AA too early! Can't believe it's rocketed this much!
  • DrScience: $AA has moved above its former price level after the stock split on 10/5 and separation from $ARNC on 11/1. While $ARNC was supposed to be the star, $AA has outperformed, and I think it's safe to say, post-separation investors are quite pleased . $GS grudgingly raised $AA PT to $27.
  • Bridget: $ARNC is now up 2 days in a row and moving higher rhrn. I'm starting a position here and will add if this continues to go higher. This was part of the split from $AA.
  • Bridget: I sold my shares of $AA today. This run appears to be over.
  • issues: @Bridget $AA Thanks. Our stop is $24.95
  • Bridget: $AA continuing to climb
  • issues: @Bridget $AA Hurray! Thanks Bridget! I bought on your mention and am still holding.
  • bwcarnation1: $AA fidelity quote shows today is 52 week hi of 25.5 yet in the chart 4/29/16 hi was 25.87. fidelity said that is because of the split and AA is no longer the same company that it was prior to split and today is the 52 week high post split. does this make sense to anyone because it doesn't to me???
  • Bridget: @bwcarnation1 $AA yes, the company split into two entities $AA and $ARNC, like GOOG and GOOGL. My $AA chart also still shows the previous stock prices but I think they are right in saying that you can't compare the $AA from 10/31 to the stock today since it represents different assets.
  • bwcarnation1: @Bridget $AA $ARNC thanks....I guess I never noticed that in past company splits
  • bnnybklyn: $AA breakout of cup and handle ?? #rookie starts looking up trends and finds "clouds" and "Ichimoku cloud" Head starts to spin. Can anyone give some clarity ? thnx
  • FHS: @issues $AA $ARNC Missed the AA trade (boohoo) but might take a shot at its offshoot, ARNC. Crushed for three days, showing a bounce with a litter better than average volume on its ten day, fwiw. Wary though with the elections. but a stop under yesterday's low, might offer a good risk reward. Cheers.
  • Bridget: @bnnybklyn $AA #rookie Utilize our tutorial videos for things that you aren't sure of: There is a video on cup and handle patterns. I would also recommend watching the bullish and bearish patterns videos:,
  • bnnybklyn: @Bridget $AA #rookie Thanks Bridget ! Love me some videos
  • DrScience: @Bridget The $AA-$ARNC split is unlike $GOOG-$GOOGL, as the tickers represent two separate stand-alone entities. In simple terms: $AA handles the dirt-digging and smelting; $ARNC handles the high-margin design, and fabrication. IMO, the company did a 1:3 split to get the below $10 price up so neither company would fall below the $5 threshold for forced institutional selling. And, while it is true that you cannot compare prior prices to current prices, I think adding about $10 to $AA's adjusted price gets you in the ballpark for support/resistance levels, at least, until the separate companies report results in January.
  • Bridget: @DrScience $AA $ARNC $GOOG $GOOGL Perhaps HPQ and HPE would be a better example.
  • DrScience: $AA moving up above the 11/01 separation high as $ARNC flounders in the lows. $ARNC was expected to be the standout and $GS put a $23 PT on the stock while $AA got a $15 PT. I'm starting to wonder if the analyst is dyslexic!
  • Bridget: $AA this one has been doing nothing but rising since it opened this morning and now buyers are coming in with higher volume going into the close. I bought a small position to see how long this move lasts.
  • issues: @Bridget $AA Excellent point. You are well worth whatever pay you get. It should be doubled. We purchased 1/2 position. Now you may want to sell since we bought AA.
  • Bridget: @issues $AA Thanks! I hope it works well for the both of us.
  • Forexpro: ...
    Overseas markets appear to be generally somewhat higher, but the E-minis are down 7.00 points, or thereabouts, as we approach the bell. Oil is slightly lower - I wasn't aware that Norway's oil workers were on strike, but they've gone back to work - ...
  • DrScience: @Danzguy $SPY I see 50 DMA as resistance as we head into earnings season. Monday starts with some economic data -- CPI, home loans, and Industrial Production -- and $AA kicks off what should be an interesting week.
  • Danzguy: @DrScience $SPY $AA Thx for response. Should I elect to take this on I am considering the SPXL as my instrument, providing it's not a bear flag as pointed out by @olveoyl. Trade 'em well. One other thing, the BBs are converging. :)
  • BSoares: $AA anyone know what happened to AA did it split?
  • DrScience: @BSoares $AA 1:3 reverse split... getting ready for splitting the company into two separate entities.
  • Tinker97: @BSoares $AA on optionhouse looks like a split but still new to understanding this.
  • Spotdog: @BSoares $AA Schwab shows a reverse split on 10/06. 1 for 3
  • judysteiner: $AA Showing up on a volume scan. Inside day, looks like it might be "done going down" as @DAN would say.
  • Bridget: Notes: A lot of stocks with this pattern: $SPY $CA $TLT $VER $CAG I expect that we will see an oversold bounce next week but ultimately going lower before setting new highs Some stocks are working: $CONN $NVAX $CLSD $APA Stocks at support: $TJX $AA $GCP $TMO $IBB $TGP - breakout on volume $CVRR $CVI - breakout $MET - breaking the trend
  • Bridget: Decent move in $AA today. moving higher after the flag. Projected move to $12.
  • FHS: $AA I know it's not a favorite in the Fitzgerald household, but I've been partial to it. I haven't seen any mention in the forum after earnings, which apparently traders liked. I did sell the bounce with a hopeful reentry on a pullback. So far the low after the spike Tuesday, 10.43 has held, and has not filled the gap, though we're only into day two after earnings. Just mulling at the moment. Cheers.
