Yeah, I think Google Finance gives you closing price. It was falling off a cliff around the 9th. Closed at $741 on 11/6.

My point was... the stock was relatively similar to the market.

Well I'd say it was closer to doubling the downside of the market from $681, but nonetheless, it's getting killed in after hours trading as well.

Well it seems GOOG busted quickly through its first support. Next one currently around $417. This sucker may fall quicker than JDSU!

GM, which is buried in debt, and Yahoo, which will drop when the Microsoft deal falls through.

I've been long QID for a few weeks now. So far I'm about even, but I'm poised for the big drop.

An April 450 call on GOOG is $20. Seems pretty high for a normal stock, but I think we have a decent shot for a dead cat bounce next week. Resistance now around $540. Purely my wild opinion.

GOOG is just hugging to that support line. I really think this is a great call option play here. Haven't been right about all that much lately, but I seem to have a read on GOOG. Of course, anyone buying needs to do their own homework.

I just don't see how natural gas can fall off right now? I do note that TNH has finally fallen through the support.What a ridiculously great stock play that company has been for me over the last couple of years. If it doesn't hold support, there is tons of room to play this stock as a short. Probably down to around $70 or so.
I am glad I sold off most of my gold fund last week.

still too early to tell, but checking UNG looks like a head and shoulders or a double top from the middle of last year in progress

don't really keep up with the fundementals that much, but knowing CNBC we'll find out in a month or so and they will make it seem like they told us all along

ditto for CHK

a lot of the oil related stocks have been weak for over a month even though oil has been shooting up and CNBC has been hyping it

UNG is all over the place, but check out the XNG. A much better indicator in my opinion.

looks like the right side of a head and shoulders in progress as well

to complete it will have to fall to around 520, rally up to 550 or so and then fall back and penetrate the neckline around 520

I guess it depends on where you got in. I'd be careful, the government seems to want to do whatever necessary to bail out these companies.
