    I have a few of these down, some are kind of simple to figure out. This is very helpful though. Thank you very much for taking the time to help your readers out like this Blain.

  2. Matt says

    The last one is pretty tough Blain! I look forward to seeing the answers on Friday.

    Are you planning on making this a weekly routine by chance?

    Justin, it is comments like that which make me love what I do even more. The good stuff is bound to keep coming man, thanks for the props!

    Matt, I love trying out new stuff like this. If I see the post does well overall (bringing in new RSS subscribers, viewers, etc.) then I will do it again. So, as of now it seems this may be become a trend!

    Investing, you are at the right place, just wait till we get into MACD trends and Stochastics! :twisted:

    Good stuff. I’m pretty sure I got the last one, but it leaves me wondering. How much does volume have to beat the average to be considered “heavy?”

    a 4th grader can trade google. Learn flags and pennants.

    I trade goog once per day. 70% of the time i am right.

    Happy trading.
