These extracts from my daily stock trading diary are intended to illustrate the techniques used in short-term share trading and should not be interpreted as investment advice. Full terms and conditions can be found at Terms of Use .

The Dow closed down slightly at 9713 on lower volume - an inside day where sellers failed to breach the 9650 - 9700 support level. The Nasdaq 100, on the other hand, is in a clear down-trend, closing down 3% at 1501.
Tech stocks
The market is downgrading computer stocks while Amazon records its first ever profit of $5 million ($.01 per share). (more)
Australia - ASX
The All Ords closed up at 3363 on strong volume.

Takeover fever in the Gold sector
The market expects further consolidation with stocks of Newcrest, WMC and Goldfields rising.

Short-term: Wait for the MACD or MACD Histogram to signal an entry point.
Long-term trades: Wait for a correction on the secondary cycle.
