Just some stocks I like that are approaching 200sma.
Most use the exact number; however, I use 97%(200sma).
Get out if the stock closes below 97%(200sma)
Don't like the OBV on these.

Married Filing Joint: $11,400
Per taxpayer and dependent: $3,650
Additional Amount if age 65 or older: $1,100 (for married filing joint)
Filing Requirement Thresholds
You are required to file a tax return if your income exceeds the combined total of your standard deduction and personal exemption. Here's the 2009 filing requirement thresholds:
Married Filing Joint: $18,700 ($19,800 if one spouse age 65 and over; $20,900 if both spouses age 65 and over)
In 2010, there is no income limitation on Roth conversion. I know some of you are thinking isn't tax free better than tax deferred? In general, yes; however, just because taxes were deferred does not mean it has to be paid.
Furthermore, when doing a Roth conversion, you need to think about how much taxes you saved at first by contribution to tax deferred account and how much taxes you will being paying in the conversion.
Here's my experience. I started saving your 401k very early on. During this time, my contributions were only saving me 10-15% on taxes because that was the tax bracket I was in and my income was not high.
When the Roth conversion was first made available in 2000, I did the conversion. A little research showed that if you have at least 15 years until retirement then it is a win. Little did I realize that I would be paying 2x the amount in taxes from what I had saved.
Keep in mind for MFJ (under 65) the first 18,700 is not taxable. If this were drawn from tax deferred account, then you never paid in taxes on it.
Conclusion, don't jump to conclusion and keep a balance of tax deferred and tax free investment. Careful planning is required.

One thing that I have not been doing very well is to identify targets.
It's not the stop loss target that I am struggling with; it's the profit target.
To prevent myself from premature profit taking, I will enter 5% trailing stop loss for every trades. Once 5% profit has been achieved, I will change to 3% trailing stop loss. I will do this for one of my account (FC).
Would you buy this stock?

The new decade is a go and I wanted to give you something to smile at.
I wanted to give you multiple smiles and multiple time frames.
Notice they are both holding on to something and one almost lost it.
First, GS never showed on the screen on Dec 30, 2009 because
OBV has been increasing over the last 3 days
OBV has been increasing over the last 2 days
4ema cross above 21ema and Above Wave e21
Notice the high on Dec 31, matches ma50 exactly!
If you want to play this, I would try to buy between close and high.
