Some RULES for this I-Hub Board...........
This board will be used for analysis of charts ranging in different time periods to determine signals for trading of various instruments=individual stocks, etf's and options. Please direct your comments towards technical indicators that everyone can see on a price chart: we are talking about signals and technical indicators here, not opinions or predictions or forecasts of when the next grand slam will be... share technical signals and charts with the group and if you have an active position...... Rather than being opinionated and letting your subjective bias determine which side of the market to be on, try to maintain objectivity based on technical analysis. Regression to the Mean is the most powerful law in financial physics Mean reversions out of extremes are the most powerful and profitable forces in all the financial markets. Riding one has enormous benefits for your wealth. Financial-market prices and sentiment are like a giant pendulum. The farther they are pulled to one extreme by excessive greed or fear, the farther they necessarily swing to the opposite extreme in the subsequent mean reversion. Like pendulums, these reversions don’t magically stop right in the middle at normal again. Their kinetic momentum carries them through to the opposite ends of their arcs. But overshoot extremes don’t last for long, as the universal greed necessary to fuel them quickly burns itself out. Markets are not about beliefs, but about sentiment. And, if you can track sentiment, If you can measure sentiment... then you are in a position to make your investment account grow without the need for excuses. (...this really is all you need to know about the Markets; ...
One of the key items to remember as investors/traders is that the market doesn't always reflect reality. Oftentimes it reflects belief. And belief can prove to be a delusion.
"A belief held without objective examples that everyone can see is a delusion."
“Opinion is that exercise of the human will which 'lets' us make a decision without objective information and objective examples.” And is obviously ....not the best choice that promotes a healthy process.
“Discussion is an exchange of knowledge; an argument an exchange of ignorance.”
Understand the above and you will understand the phrase..."Self will run riot" and you can expect the results of this riot will be destructive for yourself first and then for others.
Dysfunctional attitudes and behaviors = "self will run riot" it is not a process that builds "character". It is not common decency, nor any form of kindness...it can only be destructive.
It is no disgrace to be wrong... disgrace happens when you choose to stay wrong...
Building character is a project you never complete.
We form our character in defining moments because we commit to irreversible courses of action that shape our personal and professional identities. We reveal something new about us to ourselves and others because defining moments uncover something that had been hidden or crystallize something that had been only partially known. And we test ourselves because we discover whether we will live up to our personal ideals or only pay them lip service.

Always trade with the direction of the daily CCI
Swing trades= Always trade in the direction of the daily bias even for short term trades...if you really feel you must trade against the daily bias...you need a hair trigger...get out quick if the position moves against you. The Average True Range for SPX usually runs around 15 points. This range inceases as volatility increases
Remember...What you're looking at on an intraday chart is a daily candle or OHLC price bar "uncompressed" from the daily chart. Kind of a "micro" view of the Macro daily chart...and daily would be a micro view of the weekly chart...
Front Running a Daily chart signal (...The 60 minute chart can be considered as a proxy for the daily chart and will lead daily chart signals when daily CCI is getting ready to come out of oversold overbought levels...it just takes patience to get the timing..) This way; rather than only trade the intraday cycle you can use the intraday charts to front run a daily CCI signal. When the Daily CCI is ready to move out of oversold or overbought... your goal eventually is to catch a trade from intraday that carries over onto the daily chart. It just takes some practice and patience becoming comfortable with the CCI cycles= Intraday/Daily/Weekly and as the 3cycles sometimes line up together= synchronized you may consider a larger position. Best trades will be trades that are trading in the same direction as the daily chart's bias...=Commodity Channel Index CCI 20 points the way...
There is a "Method to the Madness of Crowds" and you can find it and define it on the charts...Technical Charting takes away some of the fear/doubt in trading... and then all you need is patience while waiting for the chart to tell you when the bias/momentum/sentiment turns...listen to signals at signal lines(simple enough...yes?...)...Kiy...
The Market is a giant feedback loop, showing traders (and anyone who views the market) a thermometer reading of the social mood under which traders, and by extension society, are operating. Most traders seem to think of the market is something that has some external value outside of the price attributed to it by traders. I prefer to think of it as a real-time gauge of a society’s view of their own productive capacity…or more simply put–social mood. When Markets are understood, the idea that everyone can make money is not only inaccurate but impossible and laughable. Everyone making money means there is no market, because who would be willing to taking the other side of the trade? In addition, most traders feel they can move with the crowd to make a (paper) profit, and then get out before the crowd, turning that trade into a real profit. In theory this is sound, but remember everyone else is setting out to do the same thing. It is this crowd movement which allows traders to make money at times. Without a large portion of traders coming to the same decision markets simply would not move. It takes conviction by many traders to create a trend, then it takes euphoric acceptance that “this is the new norm” to end it and “bend it. ” It then takes mass disillusionment to crash it the other way.

Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality/Artificial Intelligence
In the real world, Artifical Intelligence9(AI) will enter our lives in three phases and forms: https://agorafinancial.com/2017/02/17/the-next-mega-tech-transformation-10-times-bigger-than-microsoft/ PHASE #1 Assisted Intelligence: AI that replaces repetitive and mundane tasks traditionally done by humans
. A timely example would be the proliferation of robots used at Amazon to “pick” items from warehouse shelves, which we mentioned in last month’s issue. You’ll recall we’re already booking double-digit gains in the space (with more to come) in the Robo Global Robotics & Automation ETF (ROBO)
and Cognex Corp. (CGNX).
PHASE #2 Augmented Intelligence: AI that incorporates machine learning to supplement and support human analysis. One area where this type of AI is being implemented is legal discovery. That is, the period of time in which both legal parties gather evidence. Seventy-five percent of the costs associated with discovery are tied to human review of documents. And people are expensive. Using AI to pre-screen — and reduce the amount of relevant documents before humans even start reviewing the files — can dramatically reduce costs. We profited from this very technology when our portfolio position Epiq Systems was acquired for a 40% gain in July 2016.
PHASE #3 Autonomous Intelligence: AI that takes over for humans in a highly specific task. Self-driving cars would be the ultimate example of this in action.
02/28/17 ...potential profits in the VR/AR industry are enormous. Goldman Sachs (GS) estimates that the market will reach $80 billion by 2025, with the potential for that figure to actually soar much higher, to more than $180 billion.
Many of the companies developing VR/AR hardware and software are among the biggest names in Silicon Valley including Apple (AAPL), Alphabet (GOOG), Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB) and Sony (SNE).
On a July 26, 2016 conference call with analysts, AAPL's CEO Cook said he was bullish about augmented reality. "AR can be really great, and we have been and continue to invest a lot in this," Cook said. "We are high on AR for the long run. We think there are great things for customers and a great commercial opportunity." In September, Cook told ABC News
that augmented reality presented a bigger business opportunity than virtual reality. "There's virtual reality and there's augmented reality — both of these are incredibly interesting," Cook said. "But my own view is that augmented reality is the larger of the two, probably by far."
Augmented reality superimposes digital images in a person's field of vision. It provides the user with information for navigation, to complete tasks and other purposes. By contrast, virtual reality is an immersive media that places the wearer of special headsets into a completely digital world, mostly for entertainment purposes. In November, Bloomberg reported that Apple had already ordered "small quantities of near-eye displays from one supplier for testing." It said Apple was in the exploration phase of wearable computing. The device being tested would connect wirelessly to the iPhone. Also in November, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple is looking to leapfrog the competition in AR by three to five years with its offering. But Kuo said it could take Apple one to two years to come out with an AR product.

Kopin has transitioned to a wearable-centric company - they have positioned themselves to be entirely levered to success in Enterprise and Consumer head-worn AR with components and licensable IP.
When you combine high level AR market forecasts with Kopin's device share dominance with design wins inside 5 Industrial AR headsets, I believe it is clear this stock is the one to own if you are looking to lever your portfolio to the massive growth possible in the head-worn wearable segment.
As I have noted previously and pointed out in my blog posting "The Wearables Acquisition Intel Needs To Make - And Fast!" I believe a current reasonable market capitalization value for Kopin would be $394M or north of $5.00/share based on the following: https://seekingalpha.com/article/4070837-small-private-company-disrupting-industrial-ar-market

Mobileye...We believe the stock’s reaction to the Tesla news was an overreaction because 1) Tesla comprises about only 1% of Mobileye’s revenue today 2) Mobileye said that of its $1.1BN 2019 revenue target, Tesla contributes ~2% (or ~$17MM on 350K cars).” Anderson sets a $60 price target; the stock is rebounding, up $2, or 4.4%, at $47.33. Anderson writes that his own digging suggests the split had been in the works for some time, and that graphics chip maker Nvidia (NVDA) is likely being tapped by Tesla to produce an alternative: Our sense from talking with industry sources is that the relationship between Mobileye and Tesla has been headed to this outcome for some time. We believe Tesla would like to push the envelope more with autonomous features and increasingly with their own algorithms. Our best guess at this point (based on our checks) is that Tesla will eventually migrate to a hardware solution from Bosch with processing done by Nvidia using internally-generated Tesla algorithms.
Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) has been very active acquiring companies involved in the burgeoning wearable technology segment. You will find a great overview from Matt Margolis in his article entitled, "Intel Is Quietly Emerging As The Augmented Reality World Leader." Despite this acquisition activity, there are still significant gaps if Intel wants to repeat the "Intel Inside" strategy for wearables that it so successfully employed in the PC era.
In my opinion, these are the missing pieces from Intel's current wearables ecosystem:
- Proven high yield micro display and complementary optical technology
Next generation noise cancellation hardware and software
Head-worn reference designs - the new Intel Inside motherboard!
Licensable user interface IP covering voice and gesture input methods
Software middleware or a wearables operating system
Broad wearables patent protection
Interestingly, there is a way for Intel to achieve gap closure in all of the areas above with a single transaction: they could acquire Kopin Corp. (NASDAQ:KOPN).
Assuming Intel is as interested as I think they should be, what would this transaction look like and how can we benefit?

At the 2015 GPU Technology Conference last year, Musk said that what NVIDIA is doing with its Tegra GPU’s will prove “really important for self-driving in the future.” While Tesla uses NVIDIA’s GPUs, it doesn’t currently use NVIDIA’s Drive PX system, though there’s no reason why it couldn’t in the future. Why all of this matters for NVIDIA investors NVIDIA’s self-driving car focus is becoming increasingly important because of the technology’s quick adoption by both automakers and consumers. IHS Automotive estimates that between now and 2035, there will be 76 million vehicles on the road with some level of self-driving capabilities. Cheaper technology is spurring growth, as is evidenced by Honda’s $20,040 Civic, which can drive itself on the highway. The driverless-car market is expected to grow to $42 billion by 2025, according to Boston Consulting Group, and it’s clear that NVIDIA’s mapping out a plan to grab as much of that market as possible with its current automotive partnerships. ******GSIT 8.55

03/02...Pure Storage continued its streak of revenue and earnings beats, the company's guidance for the first quarter was disappointing. It expects to produce revenue between $171 million and $179 million, up just 25% year over year at the midpoint and well below analyst expectations of $201.7 million.
Pure Storage expects to produce $1 billion of revenue this year, right in line with the average analyst estimate, but the weak first-quarter guidance will require growth to pick up as the year goes on. CEO Scott Dietzen sees opportunities going forward:
Pure Storage is delivering the data platform for the cloud era, helping customers put data to work for their businesses. This year, Pure expects to reach $1 billion in revenue -- a remarkable achievement and evidence that we're only just getting started. We could not be more excited about the opportunities ahead.
Shares of Pure Storage are now down about 50% since peaking soon after the company's IPO in late 2015.

Biotechnology...the ability to play God...gene therapy.... Editas Medicine is a company that should be on a lot of radars, as they’re working on a revolutionary method of genome editing which could conceivably provide cures for the approximately 6,000 diseases which are caused by genetic mutations in our DNA. Of those, only about 5% currently have approved therapeutic treatments (and those don’t address the root cause, but seek to combat the symptoms). Editas’ genome editing platform CRISPR could instead be used to correct the genetic problem at its source: right in our DNA. A protein-RNA complex can be tailored to either repair or replace damaged genetic sequences, and is then guided to the target spot in the genetic link by a guide RNA. The result is a corrected sequence that could completely cure the issues that were being caused by the defect.There are a couple issues surrounding the company however. Firstly, it could be years before any human trials of the platform are launched. Secondly, Editas Medicine is currently caught in the middle of a heated patent dispute over the CRISPR platform itself, which teams of scientists from Berkeley and the Broad Institute each claim to have the patent rights to. Interestingly, members of both of those teams helped found Editas and still serve as founding scientific advisors for the company.Setting aside the patent dispute, there’s some exciting work being done at Editas that could revolutionize medicine, making this one of the most interesting companies in the world.

The company's most advanced product is CR845, an injectable kappa opioid receptor agonist intended for the treatment of acute pain. What makes CR845 special is that unlike traditional pain relief medications (opioids), CR845 targets the "kappa" receptor rather than the "mu" receptor. This means that the drug provides pain relief without many of the side effects associated with traditional opioid therapies such as nausea, vomiting, and respiratory depression. Moreover, because CR845 only acts in the periphery (it cannot enter the brain and spinal cord), the drug is unable to create any of the "euphoric" side effects of traditional opioid pain medications. In layman's terms, this means that CR845 has the potential to provide a non-addictive form of pain relief with fewer of the side effects associated with traditional therapy....03/20...=issues 5 million shares. ...

CAR-T therapy is based on extracting immune system cells out of the patient’s body, fabricating them and infusing them back into the patient’s body to identify and fight the cancer. While the therapy has shown successful results for treating blood cancers, its use has not yielded the desired success for treating solid tumors. Solid tumors are usually an abnormal mass of tissue that may be benign (non-cancerous), or malignant (cancerous). They are classified as sarcomas, carcinomas and lymphomas depending upon the type of cells that form them. The researchers at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine indicated
that CAR-T therapy using double target can be applied for treating a wide range of solid tumors. The combination treatment involved fabricating the T-cells to target a cancer-associated surface protein with shortened carbohydrate molecules. The double-target therapy showed high effectiveness of using new CAR’s in mouse models of pancreatic cancer. CLDX

Adamis has a vision for its Epinephrine Pre-filled Syringe “PFS," which is designed as a cost-friendly alternative for those suffering from anaphylactic reactions. The drug maker hopes to compete with the likes of Mylan's EpiPen that has been raking in billions.
With the FDA's decision expected on June 15, Maxim analyst Jason Kolbert seems to not be concerned by the Complete Response Letter the company received from the regulator last year. While the FDA expressed concerns and pushed the firm to work on expansion of the human factors study, Adamis has since handled these challenges successfully. The expansion was just a "low hurdle" to the analyst, as he does not see this to be a meaningful roadblock in any way to Adamis' success.
The analyst is also excited about the market opportunity the company is pursuing, noting, "We see a billion dollar market, and in Adamis PFS a superior product [...] If Adamis can acquire just 10% market share and generate sales approaching $100M (which we believe is the low end), it suggests shares are undervalued."
Ultimately, Kolbert believes Adamis' valuation is compelling: "At a sub-$100M market capitalization and with what we believe should be the next version of an EpiPen-like product (PFS), plus a pipeline of respiratory products and compounding pharmacy revenues set to build, we see Adamis as poised for a breakout year in 2017."

Right now, most of the world’s lithium is being produced in Australia, Chile, Argentina, and China.
Australia has the largest production by far, coming in at 14,300 tons in 2016, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Most of Australia’s production comes from hard-rock mines.
Chile comes in second place with 10,500 tons, mainly from brine operations in the Salar de Atacama, the country’s largest salt flat.
Chile has the world’s largest lithium reserves held in these briny deserts: 7.5 million tons of our metal oil just waiting to be extracted!
Despite these high numbers, it’s the last two countries that will be getting all the attention soon.
Argentina, with 5,700 tons of production and 2 million tons in reserve.
Argentina, meanwhile, has recently opened its doors to a new slew of lithium miners.
China, with production at 2,000 tons and reserves around 3.2 million tons, are both looking to ramp up production to meet demand. China already imports much of its lithium supplies from Australian mines. A sudden boom in demand for electric vehicles actually caused a shortage in 2016 and prompted officials to look at increasing domestic production.
... it’s lithium’s difficult nature that makes it so valuable. It’s not rare; it’s just hard to get in the quantities we’re going to need. Which makes Lowry’s point all the more salient: the best thing for the lithium revolution now is to start getting some actual results out of all the energy industry’s talk.

In conjunction, its growing supply deficit is leading the price of the commodity higher. Macquarie Research projected a supply deficit of 885 tonnes in 2018, 3,205 in 2019, and 5,340 in 2020. That comes to a supply deficit increase of 6x in just two years. For large-cap tech companies and automakers looking to produce electric vehicles, the need for cobalt has become increasingly clear given its role in the lithium-ion battery mix. The metal constitutes a little over one-third of a modern lithium-ion battery's composition (and greater than the amount of lithium used itself).

AES (T/$12) AES Corp... Utility-scale energy storage is expected to surpass 1.6 gigawatts by 2020, edging out the old grid system and making it that much easier to integrate more renewable capacity — once the tech catches up! San Diego Gas & Electric chose a battery design by AES Corp. (NYSE: AES) to begin replacing one of its largest natural gas peaking plants with as much as 300 megawatts of battery storage. The company will also be upgrading the existing plant, but it notes that the end goal is to replace it with renewables later on. Southern California Edison has also contracted Tesla, in a move that should surprise no one by now, to continue building onto its existing 80-megawatt energy storage project in Mira Loma. The system is already online as of this year and can cover peak energy demand for as many as 15,000 California homes. Right now, it’s the biggest lithium battery station operating in the U.S. As it stands, electric cars are still set to be the biggest source of growth in lithium batteries in coming years, but that view could shift if this trend gains traction...

http://stockcharts.com/public/3828047/tenpp/2 I long ago concluded that regression to the mean is the most powerful law in financial physics: Periods of above-average performance are inevitably followed by below-average returns, and bad times inevitably set the stage for surprisingly good performance. Marijuana Stock Scams Inside The Pot Stock Bubble Cannabis gold rush
There's no two ways about it: As an investor, you'd struggle to find an industry with a more appetizing long-term growth rate than legal marijuana.
According to cannabis research firm ArcView, North American legal sales increased by 34%, to $6.9 billion in 2016, albeit black-market sales still totaled $46.4 billion. As more U.S. states push to legalize, and with Canada potentially on the precipice of legalization by 2018, the expectation is more that this $46 billion-plus in illicit sales will shift to the legal and regulated markets in the years to come.
By 2026, investment firm Cowen & Co. anticipates total legal sales could reach $50 billion. If that's the case, we're talking about more than 23% annual growth for a decade. It's these figures that are attracting businesses and investors to marijuana stocks in droves. HMMJ.TO Medical Marijauna Life Science ETF GWPH ... ACBFF MJNA medical marijuana and industrial hemp...

With the subsidy-payment drama now behind the company, its focus will be on developing new vehicles that won't rely solely on subsidy payments to be economically viable. Kandi is currently developing those EV products for after 2020, when the subsidy payments end. The company also has its hands full launching two new EV models this year and preparing its car-making joint venture company for its initial public offering.
This will be a pivotal year for Kandi and its investors. But don't expect its stock price to regain its lost value until management proves it can take steps to reduce its reliance on subsidy payments while reigniting its revenue.

These are ten of Bob Farrell’s most famous observations: Linda Raschke's 12 Rules for Technical Trading. 1. Buy the first pullback after a new high. Sell the first rally after a new low.
1. “Markets tend to return to the mean over time.” For those of you who’ve taken statistics, you know exactly what this refers to: stocks often move too far in one direction as euphoria or pessimism clouds people’s thinking. Investors lose perspective and start believing the little devil on their shoulders.
2. “Excesses in one direction will lead to an opposite excess in the other direction.” I think of it like bungee jumpers whose cords stretch out and then compress multiple times before they come to rest or achieve equilibrium.
3. “There are no new eras – excesses are never permanent.” As the latest hot sector climbs higher and higher, you inevitably hear variations of the chorus shouting “it’s different this time”. Of course, human nature does not change so it never really turns out to be any different.
4. “Exponential rapidly rising or falling markets usually go further than you think, but they do not correct by going sideways.” The smart money locks in profits which leads to significant selling and inevitably to a correction.
5.“The public buys the most at the top and the least at the bottom.” It’s been this way since humans invented commerce.
6.“Fear and greed are stronger than long-term resolve.” Research in behavioral finance has shown that stock market gains make us exuberant; they enhance well-being and promote optimism which makes investors like to buy. Losses, on the other hand, bring sadness, disgust, fear and regret. Fear increases the sense of risk which thereby makes investors shun stocks.
7.“Markets are strongest when they are broad and weakest when they narrow to a handful of equities.” Think of it as strength in numbers. Broad breadth (i.e. market participation) and big volume is important. When wide ranging momentum channels into a small number of stocks, the top is near.
8.“Bear markets have three stages – sharp down move, reflexive rebound and a drawn-out fundamental downtrend.”
9.“When all the experts and forecasts agree, something else is going to happen.” Farrell suggests that patient buyers who raise cash in frothy markets and reinvest when sentiment is darkest can profit nicely.
10.“Bull markets are more fun than bear markets.” It has been my observation that historically the markets have rewarded optimists to a far larger degree than pessimists. I prefer to play in the bulls’ camp.
Trade well; trade with discipline!-- Gatis Roze
2. Afternoon strength or weakness should have follow through the next day.
3. The best trading reversals occur in the morning, not the afternoon.
4. The larger the market gaps, the greater the odds of continuation and a trend.
5. The way the market trades around the previous day’s high or low is a good indicator of the market’s technical strength or weakness.
6. The previous day’s high and low are two very important “pivot” points, for this was the definitive point where buyers or sellers came in the day before. Look for the market to either test and reverse off these points, or push through and show signs of continuation.
7. The last hour often tells the truth about how strong a trend truly is. “Smart” money shows their hand in the last hour, continuing to mark positions in their favor. As long as a market is having consecutive strong closes, look for up-trend to continue. The up trend is most likely to end when there is a morning rally first, followed by a weak close.
8. High volume on the close implies continuation the next morning in the direction of the last half-hour. In a strongly trending market, look for resumption of the trend in the last hour.
9. The first hour’s range establishes the framework for the rest of the trading day.
10. A greater percentage of the day’s range occurs in the first hour then was the case in the past, and thus it has become increasingly important to trade aggressively if there are early signs of a strong trend for the day.
11. There are four basic principles of price behavior which have held up over time. Confidence that a type of price action is a true principle is what allows a trader to develop a systematic approach. The following four principles can be modeled and quantified and hold true for all time frames, all markets. The majority of patterns or systems that have a demonstrable edge are based on one of these four enduring principles of price behavior. Charles Dow was one of the first to touch on them in his writings.
Principle One: A Trend Has a Higher Probability of Continuation than Reversal
Principle Two: Momentum Precedes Price
Principle Three: Trends End in a Climax
Principle Four: The Market Alternates between Range Expansion and Range Contraction!
12. In the world of money, which is a world shaped by human behavior, nobody has the foggiest notion of what will happen in the future. Mark that word – Nobody! Thus the successful trader does not base moves on what supposedly will happen but reacts instead to what does happen.
