Today's Ideas:
    for afternoon of Thurs. Jan. 17, 2008

    IMPORTANT: Below is what we're looking at currently, but pay attention to our UPDATES on the side of each page for actual entry/exit times and prices. Refresh pages often! You will witness our winners AND losers; something that is rare in our business.    TO VERIFY ACTUAL PRICES AND TIMES, PLEASE CLICK ON  A TICKER ENTRY TO THE RIGHT.  ALL TRADES, WHEN THEY OCCURED, ARE VIEWABLE.  

    Whenever possible, we have included the ETF symbol for those who are not experienced trading futures, etc.

    Special ALERT:

       We do not frequently claim that any update is more important than others. In this case, we have an interesting development to share with readers. This trade signal has created some extraordinary gains that last few years, and 2007 was the best yet. It is possible the signal does not even trigger, but it look likely that it will. We have had a bearish opinion of stock indexes lately, but trading does not leave much room for opinions. We are seeing two potential setups tomorrow morning. First, and less likely is a weak signal to sell short stock futures. We will most likely ignore this trade going into a weekend. However, we are also possibly getting a SUPER strong buy signal that will last all day tomorrow at a minimum (possibly up to 7-8 days). In any case, the fist day this signal triggers is always the best day of gains, so don't miss it IF we get long. It is typically a great day to add to positions if we get the buy signal. There is no guarantee we get the trigger to enter, so don't try to be early and get involved until we are sure. THIS TRADE HAS A VERY HIGH WIN RATE %, and we are comfortable putting on size. Keep in mind position sizes are different for everybody, and different account sizes, but we can be "heavy" if this trade presents.

    Please stay tuned to our ticker, and we'll let you know what we do, as we do it. We'll know for sure by 10:15-10:30 am, and let's hope we do get the setup. Get some rest, tomorrow is gonna be a great way to start the weekend!

    On a side note, as we type, the Sugar futures are up over 10%, and we still have 2 units. Great trade, and we hope we don't have to sell more, but we'll keep you posted.

    Position update as of 3:18 pm:

    Short 1 unit ZB (Bonds avg. price 119 21/32)

    Long 2 units SB (Sugar avg. price .10701)
