I don't usually do this...

But just for study. Using TA, I'm trying to find and "time" good
[strong fundamentals] stocks for long term investment.

Trading Psychology: Padding

I was surprised to see how one of 'my' stocks ended up with a 
HUGE pad on the closing hour at 0.062

What are pads you ask?

I can give you a thorough explanation on what it really is. But to save you from all the gibberish:
Pads or Padding, in a nutshell..  is used to either hold/prevent a breakdown/breakout or delay the inevitable.

What padding looks like in terms of "holding" or "preventing"

A castle wall.

Only a few would dare go up against a wall.
Would you? People put their lives err.. 
i mean money.. on the line for this wall.

And this is Padding in terms of "delaying the inevitable"

This would be the "illusion"

A classic trap where the big bad padder actually SELLS his shares
a few or several flucs higher from his huge pad. After doing the deed, 
he pulls out his 'army' leaving those who just bought in great despair.

So when you think you see a pad.. you better think twice.
