Overheard on StockTwits: $AMZN, $DNDN, and Bearish Bonds $ZB_F

This morning we had a slight sell off which is odd these days.  The morning gap down has been bought up nicely, however, and there has been some strength in names like $AMZN, $BAC, and $EK.  Here’s what the stream has been talking about today:

Sentiment is starting to get more bearish on Treasuries.  The Long Bond, $ZB_F has been getting killed lately.

The run in optical stocks such as $JDSU and $FNSR has been nice, both hitting new highs.

Seems like the business model for some companies these days is to sue.

While Dollar $GLD is in limbo, Euro $GLD is hitting new highs.  Commodities have been strong under the lens of a strong dollar.  If the Dollar weakens, they could really run.

Great post on @chartly this morning by @tradingpoints on Nat Gas.

$AMZN has been strong in a weak tape today.   Possibly shaking off all the iPad fears.

$DNDN has been strong today as it approaches $40.  @OptionRadar notices a “risk reversal” trade in the options market however.

    Here’s a thought for you to consider, Howard (if you haven’t considered it already): what about a separate stream for micro and nano names, with curation and/or some sort of registration to filter out blatant pumpers? Finding tiny, innovative companies before everyone else does is fun and interesting. If StockTwits offered a resource for that — say, a stream dedicated to stocks with market caps below $100 million — I think it might attract some new users.
