    For a Rally:
    1) Turn TV to the Food ChanneL
    2) Have laptop open, facing up like a clam shell
    3) wear green socks
    4)play Twisted Sister's "I Wanna Rock" ,loadly
    5) blue baseball hat on facing forward at 45 degree angle
    6) laying on top of bed,fully dressed

    For a Selloff:
    1) Turn TV to the Weather Channel
    2) Laptop open but facing down like a pup-tent
    3)wear socks with holes
    4)play any Slim Whitmen, Marvin Hamlish,or CLay Aiken song.
    5) black baseball hat on backwards
    6) hiding in closet, butt naked:cool:

    With your superstitions it would be impossible, you'll have to switch from rally superstitions to sell off superstitions every other minute. That would be so funny!:D :D :D

    Just do a search on pairs trading in Google or here. Basically, it means buying one stock and selling the other betting that the spread would narrow.
  6. Oh yea I knew that, LOL. Cmon I know you have something superstitious that you do, maybe a lucky flipping coin when your not sure whether to buy or sell.
