Megan Fox to Play Mickey Rourke's Angel?

Megan Fox to Play Mickey Rourke's Angel?

from Cinematical by

Probably the last thing that most people think about when they look at Megan Fox is religion or pure or holy (except when saying, "Holy sh*t is she hot!"). But, over at the Hollywood Reporter's Risky Business Blog, they report that Fox is now attached to star as an 'Angel' alongside Mickey Rourke in the indie crime story, Passion Plays. Mitch Glazer wrote and will also direct the story of a down-on-his-luck trumpet player who saves an 'Angel' who is under the thumb of a ruthless gangster. Rourke would be playing the trumpet dude (well, it was either that or the gangster) and Fox will play the 'Angel' who is described in the script as "a slender beauty with wings who is part of a carnival."

Most of us are used to the idea of Rourke in these kinds of 'gritty' films, but Fox on the other hand could probably use the chance to expand her resume beyond being the girl who made her name by leaning over a car. Granted, her first chance to be more than Michael Bay's window dressing came with her starring role in Diablo Cody's horror Jennifer's Body, but she hasn't strayed far from her roots and will be back working on the comic book flick Jonah Hex and the period action flick Ironclad (although her role in that particular film hasn't been confirmed) in the coming months.

Regardless of what I think of Fox's abilities, it might be nice to see her do some actual acting for a change. Because let's be honest with ourselves, standing around looking hot isn't exactly 'acting' for this chick. But I do applaud her for taking a page from the Nicolas Cage playbook, and beefing up her resume with a healthy mix of indie credibility and Hollywood blockbusters.

Passion Plays is expected to arrive in theaters later this year.

How to become a better than average Investor , Part 2

How to become a better than average Investor , Part 2

This is Part 2 of the How to become a better than average Investor series , see Part 1

In the last post we discussed the importance of Fundamental and Technical Analysis . Now we will see one of the most simple , easy and powerful thing called Support and Resistance .

This is for people who have no idea about what is it and have
at most heard about it .

Let us see both of them one by one .

Support : Support for a price is a price area where there are lots of buyers ready to buy the stocks rather than sellers . At that price point , the general perception is that its a good buy , and lots of buyers come to buy it . Hence buyers outnumber sellers and there is a higher possibility that prices will bounce back from that point . This is a point where Buying has less risk .

In other words , at support levels
demand is thought to be strong enough to prevent the price from declining further . Please understand that Support point is not a place from where it will for sure bounce back , Its only the higher probability that it will bounce back . Also understand that its not exactly a fixed price which should be considered as Support , generally its a range like 98-100 or 560-570 ..

Which point is Support point :
Every Low made by the price can be considered as Support Area .

Let see Example :

Support Example 1 : Below chart is for Jaiprakash Associates (click to enlarge) , It made a low of Rs 53 (closing price) on 27th Oct 2008 and then bounced up from there . Now Rs 53 is the support point , Prices went up from that point and after reaching Rs 90 , it again started heading down , You can clearly see in charts that it reached Rs 53 levels , but could not break down from that point and again bounced back from there .

It was a very good "BUY" around Rs 53 .Understand that buying around Rs 53 , is only a less-risky trade , not a "no-risk" trade . Prices can break down from there also .

Support Example 2 : Below is a chart of RPL . Here you can see that
prices made lows of Rs 70 around Dec 1 , 08 . That became a support point , and then prices reached thought levels around first week of Mar 09 , It bounces back from that point , It was a less risk trade around Rs 70 .

Resistance : Resistance is just opposite of Support , At this price levels there are more sellers than buyers and with high probability prices reverses from this point . At this point there are enough sellers in the market to prevent it from rising further .

Resistance point is the High made by a price . All the high's will act as some kind of resistance points .

Lets see examples :

Resistance Example 1 : Below is Reliance Charts , You can see that reliance made a high of Rs 1400 around Dec 2008 , After that you can see how it reversed from that point 2 times in Jan and Feb 2009 . It was a wise decision to sell at those points .

You can also find many examples like this if you investigate yourself . Try to see other charts if you are interested , you can look at charts at or , find yourself)

Important Note : When prices are near Support or
Resistance levels , you should be more alert . It does not mean that you just jump onto market and buy or sell , Be patient to see the actual price reversal , Though you will loose some part , that would be a better trade . Also there are several other factors which should be considered , but for now lets not touch upon them . lets keep it simple for readers .

Lets also look at some important points

Break Down : Always remember that when prices dont hold support and break them and fall further , it tells that buyers are not strong enough and Sellers have taken over them and prices will make new lows , When support is broken , Sell further .

Example :Below is the chart of
RPL , which shows how it broke down its support point and then made further lows .

Break Out : When prices dont hold resistance points and break them on upside , prices then indicate that they are going to make new highs . Better to buy at that point .

I have put a post on my analysis blog for Reliance Break out : please see it :

Some Other points to remember :

1. Support and Resistance points are places where you should be more alert and look for other signals to buy or Sell, just
dont buy because prices have reached near support , buy it when it starts rising and there are positive signals .

2. Support once broken becomes
Resistance for next time , and Resistance once broken becomes Support point for next time , use this knowledge . See :

3. Many times there are false breakout and breakdown , So it will many times happen that you get out at important levels and miss the large movement ,
thats fine , you can always enter after getting out .

4. This is most important point , Everything I talked about in this article can increase your chances of making more money in trading , but remember that you are dealing in Markets , and if you
dont control your GREED and emotions , your failure is guaranteed . Use strict Stop losses and use Money management techniques (it means not putting all your money at once , if you have 10 lacs , put only 1 lac , dont be greedy enough , else someday you markets will punish you badly , then no Technical analysis or any thing will help . have good amount of cash with you always ).

All technical Analysis and knowledge are of no help if a person cant control his greed and emotions in Market . TA and your knowledge will contribute not more than 20% of your success in long run .

This was end of Part 2 of this series , In next port (Part 3) we will see how to find support and resistance levels using
TRENDLINES . wait for it .

Comments please , Its sometimes disheartning to see no comments after I put up a post after some hard work . I dont want "good post or Great Article kind of comments , but at least share what you have learned and ask questions , make it little interactive please .

Question for you all :

Question 1 : Do you think this support or resistance thing works , or can you add anything else how to buy or sell and what things to observe at support and resistance levels , which can make buying and selling more successful ?

Question 2 : What do you think about Chambal Fertilizrs at this point , see the charts at : (click on the upper left button to make it full screen) . Suggest what should be done at this point of time ?

I came across very nice video , about difference between winning and success , a worth watch . See it below

Note : All the things discussed here are available on net with great detail . learn more of it yourself .

How to become a better than average Investor , Part 1

How to become a better than average Investor , Part 1

I am starting a series of articles which will deal with "How to invest in stocks efficiently" . This post is Part 1 .

There are two important questions which you have to answer when you want to buy shares ? They are "What to buy" and "When to buy" ?

You may be familiar with Fundamental Analysis , Fundamental Analysis answers the question "What to buy" ? . It a study of companies Financial statements , cash books , markets study to find out the future prospects of a company. It answers the question "Will this company be a good buy for long term" ? , "Will it be more valuable than what it is now " etc etc "

But !! , Even though you have picked up some excellent companies for your long term investments , That's not the end of the story . Now the biggest challenge and question you have is "When to buy it" ?

You should not just go next day and buy the share , that's not the right approach . There can be a price area where buying is best in terms of risk/reward .

Technical Analysis is the study of charts , price and volume patterns and other indicators derived from price and volume . Technical Analysis gives us hint on what can happen in future , understand that it only gives you chances, not a guarantee . So everything should be taken with crossed fingers , Decisions taken on basis of TA only increases your risk/reward scenario .

I will give you an example :

Reliance is a very good long term Investment (do your own analysis to find out why, but it is :) ) .

On Feb 1 2009 , Ajay and Robert want to invest Rs 1 lac in Reliance for long term . Both of them understand that Reliance is truly long term buy . Ajay invests in Reliance on Feb 1 , because share is going up and he feels its a good time to enter other . He buys the stock at Rs 1360 . After some days Stock starts falling and reaches around Rs 1,150 . Roberts buys the stock at that time .

see the chart here

Here you can see that Robert has got the stock at 15% lower price , which means his profits will always be more than Ajay's by that much . What did Robert do ? Robert used simple Technical Analysis concepts and entered in the stock with better prices , It does not mean it will always happen , but there are good chances for getting better price .

In the above case of Reliance , there is no significant price difference , but there can be cases ,where there can be drastic differences , and it would be really worth to use basic Technical Analysis .

Dont be scared , I will tell you some very basic things of technical Analysis in some of next post .

I will talk about

Part 2 : Support , Resistance
Part 3 : Trend Lines
Part 4 : Simple Oscillators to use for short term investments .

Watch out for second part soon .

Please share any real life example which happened with you , May be we all can try to find out what could have been done to make a better entry or exit from stock .

cheers :)
