I am long HEB, and have had some for years, before all this new excitement. I just finished reading a very interesting (old) article that someone linked to at google finance, which, I think, sheds much light on the politics of ampligen. I don't know what will happen next week. Hoping for the best. Here's the link.

Its really starting to feel as if people are grasping at straws....articles from anywhere and everywhere, referring to Ampligen as a "potential cure" for almost anything. Let it come if means getting passed though.

Heres another one, this time its referring to Ampligen possibly being a cancer treatment (what is it going to do next....create world peace? LOL)

However, we don't know if there will be a difference with the average cost you provided. We should remember though that Ampligen is extremely expensive to manufacture. On the other hand, only a very small amount is required when used as an adjuvant.
Cheers Hotchkiss and BombTek for the feedback. Looks like there were a few holes in my Googling and my textbooks!

OK, I can't take credit for this myself. I found it on the Google boards, but it as an absolute must see,

Some nice positive articles this morning, I wish it was Monday. I don't think I have ever said that! Try to have a stress free weekend everyone, I know I won't.

Prohost Biotechnology,(ProhostBiotech.Com) an independent publication which evaluates biotechnology companies, their products, technologies, scientists and managers, as well as their finances for fund managers, investors, medical professionals issued a report on Friday calling both Hemispherx's Ampligen and Antigenics’(Nasdaq:AGEN) QS-21 Stimulon the two most indespenable vaccine adjuvants. "We need adjuvants and Ampligen is among those whom we really need to have available to infectious disease and oncology specialists" said the report.

Peer-reviewed medical publications, (Ampligen: A potential toll-like 3 receptor adjuvan...[Vaccine. 2009] - PubMed Result) have reported key findings with a view to offering a rationale for the use of Ampligen as a potentially safe adjuvant- one recently published one from Cardiff Univeristy even summizes that the drug is capable of overcoming tumour-related immune tolerance mechanisms in a clinical setting.

I didn't sell, I'm still in the game, albeit a little nervous than I was this time yesterday
Dead right on!!!

Ah, a rational, sound voice in the forest...you've done well, grasshopper. Big intuitive points for you...

Do you folks remember a little earlier in this string, on Thursday somewhere, maybe, I had made mention to something and referred to a candle pattern called "Three Gaps Up" and explained that the power of the gap was a vacant hole that "NEEDED" to be filled.

I also mentioned that John Cater calls these parabolic gaps a 'sucking hole waiting to be filled'.

Well the gap got filled on Friday (yesterday)...

The move be the inst. traders ran it up Friday morning between 7:00-8:00am, when we can't trade, and let the retail crowd chase it up to God knows where it would stop and then they do exactly what Ingwe says here...they spent the day unloading large traunches that don't have to be applied for: Anything over 200k shares has to have an SEC filing to be bought or sold.

So I did give a heads up about watching three gaps in a row and gave the reason why based upon traders far more intelligent than I could ever hope to be.

J. Carter is a master trader who charges 4k a month to teach this stuff to anyone with the money; and Sakata was Japan's richest merchant in ancient Japan who figured out the candle stick methodology that we use today...

What Ingwe and a boat load of other people see and practice, isn't market manipulation, per se', as much as it's the game being played by those that know how to play the game: And have been formally educated in the ways that the market moves based upon a boat load of written knowledge from western and eastern finance/market philosophy.

The information that I post while I'm musing over possible out comes is squarely rooted on Sakata's Methods and Carter's trading set ups; although I violated one of them by NOT taking something off the top when it got to $4.65 in the morning; well above my 3:1 R/R ratio and I paid the price of losing a good chunk of profit throughout the day...but I had already planned for that to happen and made a sacrifice for the greater reward on MONDAY!!!!

THAT'S MY VOTE DAY SO IT'S MONDAY....Lol.

...and as I pointed out yesterday morning, if it brakes down past the close of the previous day it will roll over and the capitulation selling will begin...that was based upon a couple of things...

1) Sakata
2) J. Carter
3) Candle Stick price action
4) Floor Trader Pivot Points
5) Fibonacci Retracement Lines
and most importantly
6) Experience in seeing this pattern repeat itself over and over, time and again, since I started trading two years ago...

Sakata discovered these repeatable patterns in Feudal Japan and wrote them down and became the richest man in Japan 3000 years ago, but they were guarded for centuries by his ancestors; and the patterns still do the same thing today...

It's not magic that I'm referring to folks; it's time from studying that I'm referring to...

Interesting topic McMil!

From the web:

Sakata’s method has its own set of candlestick patterns and they have been developed based on Honma’s 160 rules. The number 3 is important in case of his patterns – eg. Three rivers, three mountains, three soldiers, three methods, three gaps, three Buddhas.


Three Mountains
Previously, when talking about other type of charts and such I have mentioned the three top formations etc. This three mountains looks similar.


Three Buddhas – like head and shoulders formation.


Three rivers – opposite to the three mountains formation. This is basically a three bottom formation.


Note that in case of Sakata’s method there’s not just 1-5 candlesticks that we are looking at anymore but rather the whole chart which may consist of multiple weeks, months or years.


Three Gaps – after the market has bottomed, you can see three empty candlesticks going up, there’s a gal between all of them. Once the third long candlestick is visible, you can expect a reversal.

Three soldiers
I’d say it’s similar to the three gaps – three soldiers who are all going in the same direction, except that no gaps are required. Note that this is not a reversal but rather a CONTINUATION pattern.


Three Methods
This looks similar to the rising three of falling three method discussed in my other post. The market makes a pause within this pattern and starts to go in the direction of the trend again after the three methods is „over”.

I really like and appreciate the education you two are providing here on patterns. Identifying patterns happens to be a specialty of mine and I have been waiting to see how that skill can be applied to the stock market if at all. What I deal with in my line of work is pattern where it involves behavior. Now you are graciously shedding light on how patterns show and can be read in the market. Any more information you could give me would be greatly appreciated so that my "gap" in knowledge may be filled.
