"Survival can be summed up in three words - never give up." -- Bear GryllsIt all seemed perfect. Too perfect, coming out of a three-day weekend. U.S. equities stormed out of the gate. The Dow Jones Industrial Average crossed the 26,000 mark for the first time. The S&P 500, which is a much bigger deal in the equities world, traded above 2800 for the first time as well. These levels, it would seem, were a simply a step too far, at least on this day.
I have not looked at the charts and indicators of Pfizer Inc. (PFE) since late November 2016, when I commented that, "In the short run PFE should find support in the $30-$28 area. A weekly close below $28 turns all our charts bearish. A new period of accumulation and sideways price action is probably needed before any upside moves may materialize." That forecast worked out nicely, in that PFE did find support around $30, and prices traded sideways until September of 2017.
There Is Still Plenty of Strong, Tradable ActionFor many old-time traders, the action Tuesday morning brought back memories of 1999-2000. It is not quite as frothy as it was back then, but a big gap-up in a market that is already very extended gives this market some of that old-time emotion. The immediate reaction of many market players is "this can't last" and "it would be stupid to chase it". Those are the logical and prudent responses, but they aren't necessarily the most profitable ones.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
