Kevin,

What do you think of Goog going forward? Unfortuanetly, I bought some shares at the symetric trangle pattern due to impatience of waiting for it to break on the upside. Please advice shall I hold it or get out now? (Really should be disciplined to get out when it broke down the triangle)

Moreover, what do you think of S&P, is it a short rally in a bear market or it is rally higher?

Thanks in advance!

The time to get out of GOOG was when it broke down out of the triangle..I really can't give you advice now because I have no opinion on GOOG and I'm not going to make something up just for the sake of sounding smart. sorry.
