See What People Are Saying On Oct. 8th


I don't understand the emphasis on your Pops and Drops analysis. What time period are you discussing-today, this week, YTD? This week even your drops rose significantly. What gives? How are we supposed to use this information?

Thanks for taking the time to write, Ed. Sorry you're frustrated with Pops and Drops; let me see if I can help.

Pops and Drops always spans one trading day. The idea behind the segment is, traders who owned these stocks at the open are either up or down a fairly signficant percentage by the close.

Now, two things to keep in mind; 1) on Fridays - Pops and Drops are for the week. 2) Every 3 months they're for the quarter. Below is a link - take another read and see if Pops and Drops makes more sense.
