Very nice site Atin. Congratulations and thankyou for making it available. There is much to look at and digest. Regards David

Thanks David. Keep looking out for more stuff as I get more time to develop extra features now that the basic stuff is working.

This is great stuff Atin! You must have too much free time. I look for 18o's. Anybody have any criteria they use to determine whether they bounce back quickly and how much?

-- Larry McLaren (larry@sarasota4sale.com), July 10, 2000.

Larry, free time?! I am hoping that one of these days I'm going to get a good night's sleep!

As far as 18os, I don't buy the first reversal . . . I prefer to see a breakout to confirm the bounce before i take a position. Maybe others have some better ways of playing these.

Do you wait until it goes down again or do you buy when it hits a certain level going back up? I know there has to be very good money here its just figuring out which ones go and which ones don't. Any thoughts here would be appreciated.

For me it depends on the type of market we're in. I usually buy after the first breakout, when it starts to come back down to retest. You get a closer stop that way. If it flies away, it flies away . . . but I usually don't play 18os unless I actually like the company and where the fall is just something news related. I don't normally try to catch bottoms on falling knives.
