Here is a double cross -
I have no idea of the significance of this but I don't think it is good. HANS is an extremely volatile stock but this is ridiculous. I'm going to want to watch this for a bit to see which way it goes.
Here is HANS on a 3-day 30-minute version.
I'm showing you this because there is a cross over on the second day of this chart in the 2:30 bar. This crossover follows through into the next hour - but you know my rule - if you buy on the minute charts you should sell on the minute charts and not hold overnight. That would have been a very nice profit even so. You would have purchased at 38.40 and sold around 40.40 and 2 bucks in an hours nets out to a whole bunch annualized. I'm a purist with this indicator - the third bar of the second day is not a cross over because it didn't close above the averages. And if you made a mistake and took it as a cross over with your stop below the open of the that bar you would have been stopped out a bit later in the day.
Another chart I wanted to show you is RIMM.
There's no deep lesson here - just wanted to show you how the cross over works for expensive stocks too.
Still another is AAPL -
The cross over was back on 4/23 - a purchase on 4/24 would have reaped a nice profit over the next 10 days.
And here is MSFT -
The crossover came on 4/12. Note how the stock never dipped below that open and also note that the averages were in correct order (4 over 8 over 21) at this cross over. This too would have been a nice profit - at least as nice as they get with MSFT.
And finally the last of the three amigos, the final stooge - GOOG -
I'm showing GOOG to demonstrate the anti-cross - the reverse cross over. That occurred on 4/30. It was negated on 5/03 by a normal cross and that was negated by yet another anti-cross on 05/07. Stay tuned - which way do you think GOOG is going to go?
