 ‘Stock Chat Etiquette’ 

 

There will be a Question & Answer period at the end of our presentation. Please do not post any questions until the speaker announces he is ready to receive questions.

 

Refrain from making any text posts during the presentation.

 

Limit your questions, or stock chart review to 2 per person. Place stock chart symbol in all CAPS. (Please only use caps for stock symbols so they are readily visible). Take a moment top see if a specific chart review has already been posted to avoid repeats.

 

We do not comment on ‘pink sheet’ stocks.

 

DO NOT send a private message to the presenter.

 

If you have no sound or picture please reboot hotcomm including deleting the hotcomm symbol in your sys tray.

 

If you lose or cannot see the current  chart -  click the refresh button in the top of the chart.

 

The session is recorded and available in our website the next morning, generally by 10AM.

 

 

I use 12,3,3 for stochastics.  You can use 14,5,5 for longer term and 5,3,3 for swing or daytrading

 

The Moving Averages used in my chart examples are;

Red  = 200 sma: Blue = 50 sma: Grey = 20 sma and Black = 8 ema (aka RT-line for Rick Wayne trend line)

 

Personal Criteria Forumulas are available in our site at this location http://www.candlestickforum.com/PPF/Parameters/16_263_/candlestick.asp

 

Any visitor being disruptive during the session will immediately be removed from the room and banned from re-entry.
