Stock Picks Recap for 11/30/12

With each stock's recap, we will include a (with market support) or (without market support) tag, designating whether the trade triggered with or without market directional support at the time. Anything in the first five minutes will be considered WITHOUT market support because market direction cannot be determined that early. ETF calls do not require market support, and are thus either winners or losers.
From the report, MXIM triggered long (with market support) and didn't work:

From the Messenger/Tradesight_st Twitter Feed, Rich's BIDU triggered short (with market support) and worked:

His YUM triggered short (without market support) and didn't work:

Futures Calls Recap for 11/29/12

Well, an unfortunate day after a good one as three trades stopped in narrow choppy range early. Looks like the new rule of the day is going to be that the market will spike either way as various members of Congress and the White House come out and say whether or not progress has been made on the Fiscal Cliff. Should be fun. See ES and ER sections below.
Net ticks: -23 ticks.

Triggered short at 818.90 at A on one note out of Congress and stopped, then triggered again 5 minutes later and stopped. I called off additional triggers:

Almost a dead flat trade for the session as we again had contained ranges, although the EURUSD was about 100 pips so there will be decent Levels spacing for tonight's last day of the month. See GBPUSD below for last night's review.
Here's a look at the US Dollar Index intraday with our market directional lines:

New calls and Chat tonight after 5 pm EST when the new levels come out after global rollover.
