Trading Freedom and Freedom Attained via Trading Needs You!

I Haven’t Got a Lot of Time (I chew off way too much ya ya eyes bigger… bla bla) But HERE IS MY PLEA. I’ll make it short.

This is Part Four of the “Freedom Traders” Series – How I Learned to Get Over the Wall and What May Help You.

There are links at the bottom of this post to Part 1 : My Personal Stock Trading Story. How I Blew up Two Accounts and Then Learned How to Trade, Part 2 : Trading Checklist – Rules I Follow Before Triggering, and Part 3: Now I’m Inspired!.A Struggling Trader That Inspired Change, Part 5 : Learn How to Trade Stocks (Build a Small Account) Following my Journey.

Introduction:

“in January of this year, Tuomas Sandholm and Noam Brown from Carnegie Mellon University developed a poker player called Libratus, which beat four of the world champion poker players, and not by just a little bit. They played 120,000 hands of poker, and Libratus ended up with $1.77 million in poker chips. This is a big deal, because it signals…” See: https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-artificial-intelligence-will-change-everything-1488856320

Now, before you turn me off, hear me out quick! BTW, I meant to write the “How to Write a Trading Plan” post next but this was eating me alive so I’ll do that next.

This is about a freedom about to be stolen from you (the freedom to successfully trade at a retail level – your trading freedom) and what can be done and how you can benefit. Yes, there’s an upside for your service.

And if nothing else, I’ll guarantee you’ll be a better trader (unless of course you’re super trader already).

Here’s my best foot forward to what the H this post is about.

The Uncle Sam poster. Yes, this is the best way to explain this post.

Look, when this poster propagated it was during a time that people stood for what was they believed to be right (freedom) – so much so they would die for it. The whole country (and even the whole free world) rallied behind it. Now, of course I’m not asking for that haha, but I am asking for like minded individuals (people that want a better future that may or may not see the problem on the near horizon) to stand up and get behind what we’re doing – if even it is in a small way AND even if it only means you receive the benefit of becoming a better trader as the minimum objective.

Compound, Trading, Wall Street, Disrupt

Compound Trading Wants You to Disrupt Wall Street!

Uncle Sam (initials U.S.) is a common national personification of the American government or the United States in general that, according to legend, came into use during the War of 1812 and was supposedly named for Samuel Wilson. The actual origin is obscure.[2] Since the early 19th century, Uncle Sam has been a popular symbol of American culture and a manifestation of patriotic emotion.[3] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncle_Sam

What’s The Big Deal? 

Look, I know I talk a lot about this… singularity and algorithms and stuff (math is one of the few things I’m good at) and I KNOW that most of you just want to trade better so you can achieve some level of freedom in a world that’s stacked against all of us common people. I get that. And so I apologize for my nerd post, but you can get what you want and I can feel like my life was worth something (more than just being a decent trader and money and so on). And you never know, you may actually take up a small portion of the cause in the process.

Here’s the big deal; right now this moment there are large rooms of scientists (mathematicians and computer programmers) designing algorithms and artificial intelligence to beat Wall Street. How do I know? Because I cracked the code. Don’t believe me? Fine, I don’t care actually – I wouldn’t believe me either. Seriously. But we have documented it and if nothing else you can’t argue that some have cracked Wall Street.

See:   http://www.ted.com/talks/jim_simons_a_rare_interview_with_the_mathematician_who_cracked_wall_street

Or this article that relates to the introduction of my blog piece:

https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-artificial-intelligence-will-change-everything-1488856320

You can’t argue that some have cracked Wall Street.

So What’s The Problem? 

The common person (retail trader) has always had the chips stacked against them on Wall Street. But that’s getting to be very, very real and nearing the point of completely unfair. I know, some of us can still beat it, but only the best human traders consistently beat Wall Street.

Why? Because there are high frequency trading algorithms and various other algo type trading systems that are revolutionizing trading.

And THE REAL PROBLEM is that it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that over the next ten years (at very most – more likely 3 -5 years) this will become unbeatable. Look, singularity isn’t far off and I’m telling you that there are algorithmic trading operations that completely destroy our ability to profit. Soon, very soon, mark my words they will be telling you on TV that YOU HAVE TO GET IA TO TRADE OR DIE.

What is IA? An intelligent assistant. In other words, what we do (what we are developing with our algorithmic models) – and I’m not asking you to subscribe to our algorithms (I would develop them whether we had even one subscriber). The traders on CNBC you watch are already talking about how they can’t do without their #AI now.

So IA (an intelligent assistant) is the first level of acceptance at the retail level, because the human trader is in control and the algorithm simply assists the trader. But there will be a time soon where those “assisted” traders will move to full automation because there is no way to beat the machine. It’s all a process of acceptance.

Why is IA (Intelligent Assisted Trading) or HFT (High Frequency Trading) a Threat to Me?

You will be beat and you will have to subscribe to the future. And it is coming right soon. Think of me when you have no choice. Now, please keep in mind this isn’t going to be required (IA) for long term investing any time soon. I am talking about trading (day trading and swing trading).

You will be beat and you will have to subscribe to the future.

Here’s a CNBC video on Human Assisted Intelligence for example:

http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000488817

So what’s the problem then? I’ll Just Subscribe to the Future

You may, or you may not. Right now, the IA technology is available and there are algorithmic modeling teams that produce incredible results (heck, our inaugural model EPIC has been insane successful), but YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO BUY THEM.

There is certainly a trend toward increasing automation among financial firms. Preqin, a company that provides financial industry data, reports that 40 percent of hedge funds created last year were “systematic,” meaning they rely on computer models for their decisions. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/600695/will-ai-powered-hedge-funds-outsmart-the-market/

You’ll be able to buy the moderately decent ones, but you won’t be able to buy the world class models. And even if you could, you couldn’t afford them. Do you know what these models are worth? Insane amounts. Some of the richest people in the world have become so over the last few years because of them and they my friends are sitting on islands they own, sitting in 60,000 square foot houses overlooking a bay with their mega yachts in view. Sounds like a Bond villain  – but true. Study it. It won’t be the common person that has them.

“I’ll Be Fine.'”

Sure, you’ll be fine as an investor and you’ll even be fine as a trader for a while. But you will as a trader be forced to subscribe to this future within 3 – 5 years or you won’t trade. That I can guarantee.

So What’s My Angle? Let Me Summarize Before This Post Gets Big.

IA and AI is coming. You will have to subscribe as a trader. I guarantee that.

We have published our work in modeling the algorithms over the last year for transparency. It would take you hours, but you could confirm that I am not a nut by reading our whole website and blog posts that we have in fact modeled what the machines are doing.

We have been challenged in various ways since starting this endeavor (trying to model what the AI firms are doing in the markets) and trust me it would have been easier to sell out. And I won’t explain how we could have sold out fast and easily and went to the beach.

My nature (you know the story about the toad and the scorpion), is the Robin Hood thing and I know it is corny, but it’s all about the common man for me. It’s all about looking at each other and jumping. I have a grade 8 education because I was bored in class, but I can calculate like nobody’s business. I’m an outlier, I get that. A nerd.

But I know math and I have done well in business for thirty years and everybody around me is screaming at me about how I’m so invested in this and not paying attention to my businesses (that they deem to be adequate).

But I am a common man that had to work very, very, very hard and I believe in and need as my nature the common man team thing. I am not a suit, I am not a Wall Streeter, I am not a corporate guy, and I am not a 9-5 type. I need by nature to stand for something and have to have my life to have been of some form of value. That’s just me (the scorpion and the toad).

So that brings us to now. Right now we at minimum have a trading platform that can benefit any learning trader and our clients will tell you that even advanced traders are learning and benefiting from our services. And because we’re already up and running I don’t need to sell you on it.

But there’s more (yes like the infomercials haha)…. we know how to model (crack the code) of the algorithms and we’ve proven it. Our mission is to democratize Wall Street. What does that mean? Make available to the common man what otherwise would not be attainable or available.

Make available to the common man what otherwise would not be attainable or available.

So What am I Asking For?

The vision I have for the future is tough for the common person. I see massive debt being moved to the middle and upper class in new and ingenious ways and we are allowing it and the elite getting richer. I see a difficult future for our kids and grandkids and their kids. I believe it is critical for this generation to get over the wall and I believe time is very short.

The wall to freedom (as it applies specifically to traders or aspiring traders) is the wall to predictable and consistent success so that our future generations can be given the opportunity to compete in a world that will get more and more elitist.

So I have a trading room that is already successful (when you consider the algorithm subscribers and swing trading subscribers) – successful in that we’ve got lift off and it’s a profitable endeavor already. The trading room is a little light yet and I would like to see more people in there but it is solid and has very good traders in it for newbies and experts alike and we are profitable.

So Why Would I Want More and What Do I Want?

I would like anyone that has a dream or a vision that relates at all in any way to what we are doing to get involved. We need good traders in the room, we need learning traders in the room. And yes I am saying we need subscribers to get beyond just a successful little trading enterprise. Let me give you an example.

The oil algorithm work we’ve worked with… EPIC the Oil Algo…. more than one million invested in less than seven months – in just time, forget the hard costs and various other costs. Algorithmic modeling, IA, AI, machine learning, big data – whatever you want to call it is massive.

So what we’ve done is we’ve secured early adopters to our offerings (the trade room, the algorithm charting newsletters and swing trading newsletters) to fixed subscription costs even as sub costs increase – and very soon the trajectory of those sub fess (to new users) will be parabolic – algorithms are expensive! Decent algorithms available are tens if not hundreds of thousands per month and our first algo is going to coding now and will be at that level very soon (EPIC is one of six and there are more in the works). And the institutional guys love it.

So what I am saying is that our work is costly and yes the everyday common person subscribing does bring that vision forward in a small (small in that it is bite sizes but adds up) but important way.

BUT MORE THAN THAT! We would love for others to get involved. We need learning traders to get over the wall to help others more than anything. The learning traders that succeed will be our best advocates when they become successful! But we need profitable traders too!

We need traders to get active in our room. We need traders that want to test our algorithms. We need traders that want to get involved in the marketing. Traders that want to help organize events. Traders that want to coach. Traders that want to document trades on video. Traders that will write blog posts and share our mission on social media and there will be so many more things that yes, WE NEED YOU FOR.

Why? Because we would really like to be the ones that make available to the common person world class algorithmic modeling so the playing field stays as fair as possible. And I personally would like to have lived a life of some value. Our middle class and even upper class is disappearing and keeping Wall Street a level playing field would at least offer a way for the common person to provide for their children and grandchildren.

That’s my sales pitch, my best foot forward – so if it at all meets your goals in even the smallest way… this is your call to action.

AND IF NOTHING ELSE – WE’RE A DAMN GOOD TRADING GROUP:)

And here’s my promise… I’ll do my best to stop trying to recruit ya’ll to the cause and focus on the trading – and hey, this Monday is the start of my two week double my account challenge so I’ll definitely not have time to sell y’all on our platform haha.

Also, I’ll do my best to get the “How to Write a Trading Plan” out sooner than later.

If you are new to our trading service you should review recent blog posts, the Compound Trading YouTube Channel and at minimum our algorithm Twitter feeds because they do tell a story in terms of the market and how the inflections of the market determine our day to day trading. You will notice the algorithmic modelling has been undeniably accurate with many time-frames (intra-day, weeks and months out) so I myself have learned to respect their math (they have taken me from a 60% hit rate to 80% in my trading – all publicly posted live trades).

The algorithm Twitter feeds can be found here:$WTI (@EPICtheAlgo), $VIX (@VexatiousVIX), $SPY (@FREEDOMtheAlgo), $GLD (@ROSIEtheAlgo), $SLV (@SuperNovaAlgo), $DXY (@DXYUSD_Index). Our Swing Trading Twitter feed is found here: https://twitter.com/swingtrading_ct.  Our lead trader Twitter feed is here @curtmelonopoly and lead tech developer @hundalSHS.

Momentum Stocks (Market Open and Intra-Day):

I do trade morning momo stocks, but I do avoid risk – so often I avoid the first 30 minutes (gap and go) and trade momentum stocks later in the day after the wash-out looking for a snap-back. Just prior to open and shortly after open I post momentum stocks to the trade chat room (and Twitter and Stocktwits if I have time).

Some of my Favorite Intra-day Trading Set-Ups:

(1) Momentum Stock Wash-Outs for Snap Back, (2) Bad News Wash-outs on Stocks with High Institutional Ownership, (3) Getting on the Right Side of a Trend Change and scaling in my position and (4) Our Algorithm Set-Ups.

The momentum stocks (from previous days and morning trade) I continue to watch through the day for indicators that allow a trade.

Morning Stock Watch-Lists for my Favorite Set-Ups:

Free scanners to find momentum stocks that you can easily review charts of for indicators that bring probability of your trade being successful up considerably. These are not useful for first 30 minute market open gap and go type plays (you need a good momentum scanner, level 2, and best to have hot-keys for the first 30 mins of gap and go trading)… but are very useful for intra day scalping and swing trading (start with trending stocks and then look at indicators intra for simple set-ups – study scan study scan study scan).

Live Trading Chat Room Video Raw Footage and Transcript:

Two Part video (Part 1 embed is below and go to Compound Trading Youtube channel for Part 2 of live feed from day and other charting from the day)
 

Compound Trading Stock Chat-room Transcript:

Please note: Miscellaneous chatter removed from transcript and some discussions I will add notes with information I’ve gleaned in discussions online with traders on DM etc also for further explanation (noted with *). Most days at 9:30 ET market open there is moderator live broadcast explaining trades and at times during the day there is also live broadcast market updates and trade set-up explanations (so you have to scroll through video feed to market open etc to catch live broadcast portions – in future we will note in in transcript when we are on the mic so viewers can correlate time with transcript with video feed when reviewing trades). 

Note: We are testing a new trading room. This particular room does not list a time stamp with each chat entry – we are working on a fix. Also, please note, sometimes pieces of the transcript are missing (also something we are working on). But the video is raw and complete.

Curt M: On mic 9″05 for premarket review >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Hedgehog Trader: morning!
Sartaj: Hi
Curt M: Chart Set-Ups on Watch: $BLMN, $SNAP, $RTW, $JUNO, $GREK
gary y: good morning
Sandra: gm
Sartaj: Greetings, Gary
Spiegel not Speegell: Good morning everyone
Sartaj: Funny name
Spiegel not Speegell: thanks!
Spiegel not Speegell: Hot junky penny stock yesterday and possibly today is AMLH
mat: Ag, silver miner. I like the set up should metals get another leg higher here
mat: The miners have acted so horribly. They play catch up sooner or later IMO. Targets based off of prior moves in 11.5 or 13’s from low 8’s currently
Curt M: Back for open>>>>>>>>>
Curt M: in 1 min sorry sartaj lol
Spiegel not Speegell: can’t wait to see that
Spiegel not Speegell: CYOU 52 week breakout
Spiegel not Speegell: when doing those challenges what % of account do you bet on each trade?
Hedgehog Trader: do you like TWTR? i think it’s a nice contrarian play and chart looking better and better
Hedgehog Trader: 11% short interest on TWTR
mat: PLaying some UWT against the oil lows here. Think we get some lift here
Curt M: Long $CCCR 2.40 2000 test
Spiegel not Speegell: What do I click on in tradingview to get those lists of top gainers?
Spiegel not Speegell: thanks
Leanne: that would be EPIC to watch
Spiegel not Speegell: looking forward to that 2 week challenge
Spiegel not Speegell: will you be offering a service where epic picks the stocks?
Hedgehog Trader: $SINO perky
Spiegel not Speegell: aren’t all those upper wicks a bad sign?
Leanne: $CMO if you get a chance, the 20 crossed the 200, price is above MACD and RSI are up
Spiegel not Speegell: So basically just buy the first retrace of stock that has gone up a lot.
Spiegel not Speegell: mtbc
Curt M: Watching $MTBC VERY CLOSE NOW for 2.00 Break!!!
Curt M: On mic>>>>>>>
Curt M: 2.20 10000 shares legging in checking fill tight stop
Curt M: 2.018 sorry
Curt M: 10000 add 2.106 $MTBC
Curt M: Stop 1.95 set
Curt M: Stop 2.01 set
Curt M: Off mic stop set 2.01 and alarm at 2.24 cya in 30 mins
Curt M: >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Curt M: Stopped 2.01 – will re look after lunch $MTBC
Curt M: Sartaj you tell Spiegel about yesterday mid day video?
Sartaj: Totally forgot, I’ll send him the link now
Curt M: Thanks
Curt M: Ya I forgot till now too
Curt M: On mic in 3 mins for mid day review>>>>>>>>>>
Curt M: Sartaj text me if that fellow from yesterday comes in for review if you woudn’t mind pls thx
Sartaj: Sure thing
Curt M: On mic for chart set up review >>>>>>>>>>>>>>
mat: looked to me like saudi/yellen buying down in the low 48’s earlier
Spiegel not Speegell: There’s a program you can download at download.com called Advanced System Care. When you download it at the top right of your screen there’s a RAM cleaner that releases all the excess RAM so your system and the chart lag can be cleared up.
Spiegel not Speegell: So will gold have it’s own 24 hour EPIC trade room and maybe forex too?
Sartaj: So keep in mind, since you mentioned it a bit earlier, each equity has its own algorithm. EPIC is specific to oil, and ROSIE is the one specific to gold. Right now, we don’t have plans for 24-hour gold trading room until oik’s is rolled out
Spiegel not Speegell: thanks Sartaj
Sartaj: No problem. Likewise, we don’t use EPIC or any of the other algorithms to target stock picks (e.g. low float, OTC, etc.)
Sartaj: But that video I sent does give you an idea of the disciplines that are used to generate those models
Spiegel not Speegell: Will you guys be selling wheelbarrows to hold all the money we’ll make trading oil?
Sartaj: so while we don’t focus so much on writing scanner scripts and such at the moment, the basis for the modeling is the same
Sartaj: Haha
Spiegel not Speegell: When the market eventually starts a downtrend, since you don’t short would you be looking to trade the bearish 2X or 3X ETF’s or is there always something to buy?
Leanne: what! no hot cars and trading on the beach with half naked women around you
Sartaj: $36 for the month, Spiegel haha
Spiegel not Speegell: Of course that return assumes no war with North Korea
Leanne: Thanks Curtis
Spiegel not Speegell: see ya!
Curt M: Off mic – tomorrow we’ll run thru list of this chart set up and then next week on to next (likely a trading challenge to double account in 2 weeks)>>>>>>
Curt M: you bet
lenny: thanks
Curt M: Back in 20 mins for afternoon session>>>>>>>>>>>
Leanne: I’ll be back tmr. Off to a fiedltrip to see honey bees with a big group of 5 year olds
Sartaj: The senator has left the building
Sartaj: Won’t say which one it was
Sartaj: Comes in here like clockwork for the midday reviews
Curt M: interesting
Hedgehog Trader: Curt one to watch – fwiw my signals show we could see ESEA bump up tomorrow
Curt M: That would be nice – I hold a small position.
David: $wstc POPPIN
Hedgehog Trader: Curtis just let me know his internet went down
Hedgehog Trader: the room will be online when the backup kicks in

Morning momentum stocks on watch so far: $CLWT, $UA, $DRYS, $UCTT, $APTO

Markets: $SPY $ES_F $SPX testing significant support, $GLD, $GDX are both under continued pressure BUT the Trump tax plan announcement and some other geo scenarios have given them some life. And of course Silver isn’t in the best of shape but will trade somewhat different than Gold. $USOIL, $WTIC tanked like EPIC said it would so we’ll see what range it gets next here – could get a short term pop but it is trending in a downward channel. $DXY under continued pressure as is $VIX.

Market Outlook :

Crude -2.22% to $48.52.

Per recent reports:

There are significant resistance clusters above recent highs in oil and the S&P so I will be very cautious to upside going forward until recent highs are taken out and confirmed. I see significant upside challenges in Oil and SPY with most recent highs being taken out.

If you are new to our trading service you should review recent blog posts, our YouTube Channel and at minimum our algorithm Twitter feeds because they do tell a story in terms of the market and how the inflections of the market determine our day to day trading. You will notice the algorithmic modelling has been undeniably accurate with many time-frames (intra-day, weeks and months out) so I myself have learned to respect their math (they have taken me from a 60% hit rate to 80% in my trading – all publicly posted live trades).

The algorithm Twitter feeds can be found here:$WTI (@EPICtheAlgo), $VIX (@VexatiousVIX), $SPY (@FREEDOMtheAlgo), $GLD (@ROSIEtheAlgo), $SLV (@SuperNovaAlgo), $DXY (@DXYUSD_Index).

Momentum Stocks (Market Open and Intra-Day):

I do trade morning momo stocks, but I do avoid risk – so often I avoid the first 30 minutes (gap and go) and trade momentum stocks later in the day after the wash-out looking for a snap-back. Just prior to open and shortly after open I post momentum stocks to the trade chat room (and Twitter and Stocktwits if I have time).

Some of my Favorite Intra-day Trading Set-Ups:

(1) Momentum Stock Wash-Outs for Snap Back, (2) Bad News Wash-outs on Stocks with High Institutional Ownership, (3) Getting on the Right Side of a Trend Change and scaling in my position and (4) Our Algorithm Set-Ups.

The momentum stocks (from previous days and morning trade) I continue to watch through the day for indicators that allow a trade.

Morning Stock Watch-Lists for my Favorite Set-Ups:

(1) Pre-Market Gainers Watch-List : $CLWT, $DRYS, $UCTT, $MDGS $EXAS $UA $UAA $MTL $NOK $PYPL $ALXN $YNDX $CMCSA $BMY $LYG $F $FSLR $TAL I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

Study:

For new readers, a review of our unlocked posts on our blog would help you get in to the story we are following with the securities listed in this newsletter.

Free scanners to find momentum stocks that you can easily review charts of for indicators that bring probability of your trade being successful up considerably. These are not useful for first 30 minute market open gap and go type plays (you need a good momentum scanner, level 2, and best to have hot-keys for the first 30 mins of gap and go trading)… but are very useful for intra day scalping and swing trading (start with trending stocks and then look at indicators intra for simple set-ups – study scan study scan study scan).

Most days at 9:30 ET market open there is moderator live broadcast explaining trades and at times during the day there is also live broadcast market updates and trade set-up explanations (so you have to scroll through video feed to market open etc to catch live broadcast portions – in future we will note in in transcript when we are on the mic so viewers can correlate time with transcript with video feed when reviewing trades). 

Note: We are testing a new trading room. This particular room does not list a time stamp with each chat entry – we are working on a fix. Also, please note, sometimes pieces of the transcript are missing (also something we are working on). But the video is raw and complete.

Caide: Good morning
Optionsavvy: gm folks

Optionsavvy: I am actively stalking a trade in BAC via options
lenny: looks rough
Spiegel: Don’t forget about ESSI today. I think it will run some more from my pick of it yesterday
Curt M: Back on mic>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Optionsavvy: ESSI was sponsor for music fest I was at last weekend. material all over. like the story
Optionsavvy: just be careful with ESSI its up HUGE YOY
Optionsavvy: problem is they bought the market right into res yesterday into announcement. priced to perfection so anything less than groundbreaking will be a sell. risk is up
Optionsavvy: imo of course 😉
Curt M: $CETV only other I have to add to list for open
Spiegel: Just a side note – With a lot of these little penny stocks I give, most are garbage companies. Don’t treat them as buy & holds. Just get in, make your money, and get out.
Optionsavvy: DOW is strongest on relative basis which is bullish ( usually ) so mixed signals. I am sitting on hands until I see a clear level to trade from
Curt M: That’s it for my watchlist – back on mic for open 9:29 It’s a soft open!!!
Curt M: Wisdom at work.

Curt M: 1000 share test tight will cut if I have to and re-enter

Curt M: $AKBA long 1000 $AKBA 13.295
Curt M: Long $AKBA 1000 add 13.515
Curt M: Set stop 13.49
Spiegel: very nice!
Curt M: Stop 13.56 executed out 3000 shares $AKBA nice win
Curt M: Thanks Soiegel
Curt M: Off mic>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> $AKBA
Curt M: Will add $PVCT ass it goes hopefully.
Curt M: $AKBA watching for either break of 14 the clear dollar or look at it over lunch for an proper entry for afternoon. Got out because of 13.75 on deck – the .75 quarter.
Spiegel: IS PVCT from the swing trade section to or just this room?
Curt M: just going to add as I can and hope $PVCT … its a small play
Curt M: Like total I will be in if fully in is 3000.00 and right now I’m in 20% – so for my account its small
Curt M: It’s a trending play that I just like the trend on it. Think it will continue in trend.
Market Maven: I was in $AKBA with you and now $PVCT small also and I know Len was too – nice and thanks. We’re out $AKBA right now also.
Sartaj: Curt has to take some calls. We are going to begin the midday review at 12:05 PM EST at the latest.
Curt M: Back so if there are any charts you’d like to review put em in here. Start in 5 mins.
Curt M: On mic for review>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Curt M: one min sorry
Sartaj: lol
Leanne: lightbulb going off, but before I try at home I need to learn more about fibs and then how to build this matrix.
Leanne: who knew you could teach an old dog new tricks!
Leanne: OMG Curtis!
Leanne: Can we create the matrix with TV? Have the free version, does that work or we need the paid version?
Sartaj: You can use Fibonacci Retracement, trend lines, and those technicals on the left hand side in TV
Sartaj: So yeah, you can create matrices in the free version
Sartaj: but if you want to layer Squeeze Momentum, MACD, RSI, etc., you need the paid version
Leanne: I have TC2000 so will try on there, never got into fibs yet so big learning curve for me today
Sartaj: Yeah
Sartaj: Most, if not all, modern platforms will let you do what he just did
Sartaj: Too bad Spiegel missed that
Leanne: ok, already paying for TC2000 and I like it, am used to it so will try building a matrix on it
Sartaj: And Bernard, how’s it going?
Leanne: I would like to sign up for a modelling class!
Leanne: he did! Thanks Sartaj
Leanne: thanks Curtis
robert g: i saw where you mentioned your 92% market calling meter, what is that about?
Sartaj: That was something called… a joke. But if you want to check out our P/L ledgers for Q1 2017, check out the website: https://compoundtrading.com
Sartaj: We are also working on algorithm-specific P/L reports
Leanne: OMG you just made me week Curtis
Leanne: you have no idea
Sartaj: That being said, if you follow EPIC’s feeds in any capacity, you’ll realize, and there are live videos you can watch, of our algorithm-generated price/time targets being hit, in real-time
Leanne: I’m like jumping up and down
Sartaj: The latest call was this resistance cluster that was called a week in advance, and we were running our predictions contrary to what the market wanted/was saying. They were anticipating a recovery, and our model showed a crash coming
Sartaj: and both targets were directly hit earlier today in the room
Leanne: OMG Curtis I did one!!!!!
Sartaj: It’s also worth noting that you don’t want to overfit your data model. Make sure that your tops and bottoms are confirmed first… use more than just a couple of points when you’re applying your trend lines on the chart
Sartaj: “Overfitting” is an important study in statistics that’s worth investing some time into. Wikipedia’s article is pretty good
Sartaj: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overfitting
Market Maven: Just publishing charts now to share so if anyone wants the indicators or whatever you can use link. Then I trade.
Curt M: Thanks Maven
Sartaj: Leanne, imo math starts with a trip to the art museum, but all things considered, the trading platform you use should already have trend lines built-in, and then really, the only other thing you might want to check is for retracements
Market Maven: He yells I type
Sartaj: if you can’t find them, DM me on twitter, and I can help you do some research
Curt M: Was Speigel not in room?
Sartaj: He wasn’t, unfortunately
Sartaj: he would have loved that
Sartaj: If anyone has feedback, you can email me at info@compoundtrading.com I see we have the usual suspects in the room today
Curt M: Just send him a note maybe with the link – he’s all about it you’re right
Sartaj: Sure thing
Sartaj: Should have been #FreedomTraders, Curt. M was missing when you get this msg
Curt M: lol
Sartaj: oh well
Curt M: by the time I do 6000 of them I’ll have the hashtag for all the long tail mispells
Curt M: I’m not stypid
Curt M: i thought that was funny anyway
Sartaj: I just thought, Curt is an octopus
Curt M: Did Robert leave?
Sartaj: He left as soon as you signed off the mic
Curt M: I won”t say it
Shafique: $FUEL popping
Rick: trading view chat is funny sometimes
Sartaj: It’s interesting to see what they talk about when they’re not gambling
Sartaj: Twitter bots are also funny, when they start mass mailing pumps
Sartaj: Or on Monday, there was a slew of conspiracy theories
Curt M: Wow $MTBC 220%
Flash G: $MOMO on its trail non stop chugging along
Shafique: Got a bit on that $MTBC dump – next
Curt M: $RTIX hit the upside resistance I mentioned at luch and backed off.
Leanne: so I watch and stalk
OILK: yes nice chart leanne
Leanne: Curtis, BLMN, the 20 is crossing the 200, the MACD seems to be good, it’s not as swoopy as I’d like but would love your thoughts if you have time.
Leanne: Thank you OILK. I am truly humbled by this amazing group and don’t feel in any way like I’ll be in the same league but trying my best. My beach is back East on the Atlantic Ocean. That’s my goal. My freedom.
OILK: excellent
Curt M: Great set up – main 2 problems are earnings after market so wait for that and make sure over resistance before long
OILK: The reason you don’t see a lot of losng in this group is we trade predictable set ups. Sure Sykes type have set ups but those type of set ups arent easily reproducable – its hard for others to do it without blowing up their accounts in the learning process – we trade predictability
OILK: $BLMN fits the set up
OILK: It looks good
Dan: agree
Leanne: Thanks. Sykes was my intro into the trading world, I paid a HUGE price. This is my home now.
Dan: awesome
OILK: Sykes is good but hard to reproduce very hard
Leanne: So watching BLMN for after earnings and JUNO is where you talked about earlier? Looks like hitting a buy mark?
Leanne: I”m an old cat (same age as Curtis), lots of kids, lots of universities ahead of me to pay for. I’m after long term, consistent, lower risk plays. Compounding wins!
Curt M: $JUNO you have to wait for 20 MA to cross 200 MA and price above
OILK: Same story as our core group
OILK: its a good fit
Leanne: 🙂
Curt M: They are all at resistance lol – but the setups are there. $BLMN $SNAP $JUNO $RTIX
Curt M: So they have to confirm up or cool off and then the trade is when they’ve cooled and go
Curt M: Unfortunately they all have to pop or drop for a trade – but they’re set up thats the important part

UNFORTUNATELY OUR AFTERNOON SESSION TRANSCRIPT ISN’T AVAILABLE – This platform requires us to copy and past it and that will likely cause us to continue testing other platforms because it is simply not feasible.

Good morning!

This report updates buy, sell, holds for the stock picks on this list. 

IT IS THE CONTINUATION of recently published – I didn’t finish on last publication going through the whole list below.

We are stepping up the rotation cycle with more frequent updates going forward and we are going to categorize our trades soon because we are covering many more stocks than we expected when we first started the service. And shortly thereafter our swing trading alert service will launch – currently we update by newsletter only and not by alert (the alert service addition is about 45 days out).

You will find our most recent swing trading newsletter update here:

Mar 7, 2017 – Watching close for a bounce. Stoch RSI on chart is near bottom so on high watch here.

Feb 27, 2017 – Trading at 43.72 this beat up sector seems to be ripe for a bounce. If we execute a trade on Monday it will be to test the waters and watch the market sentiment day to day – this and price action will determine how long we are in it. An interim target however would be 46.80 and would likely change as the trade progresses.

Mar 7, 2017 – $EXP Building Materials watching close for a bounce.

Feb 27, 2017 – “Eagles Materials Posted Record Revenues, Record Net Earnings and Record Net Earnings per Diluted Share. Its stock grew 60% in 2016 and still looks cheap.”

Eagle Materials is a riskier play than most we will add to our swing portfolio, but our DD on this one has us excited and we likely will take a long position early this week with a target of minimum 10% upside in next 90 days. We will however keep our stop tight.

$FIT FitBit Under 9 MA, MACD pinch, no volume expansion yet. On high watch.

Mar 7, 2017 – It hasn’t got its bounce yet – still watching. Trading at 6.00.

Feb 27, 2017 – We find the $FIT trade interesting. Although we would never otherwise consider it and if we do enter today a long position it will be looked at as short term, we think there may be opportunity to swing trade it because it should be much lower considering its recent quarter… lower in that we expected a panic that did not occur. This seems bullish, or at minimum a likely “bargain” in our opinion.

$FIT Swing Trade Target 6.99. Trading at 6.15.

April 11 – Holding from 6.95 2000 shares. Trading 6.31 and may have to cut at loss if oil resistance on deck holds.

Mar 27 – Hold. Trading 5.38

Mar 19 – It’s a bad trade but the MACD is so close to the bottom that we are holding for a bounce. One of our few bad swings in 2017.

Mar 12, 2017 – $NE Trade has turned against us with a sell signal on MACD. Holding on conviction. We believe it is near over-sold and this sector of the industry is near a turn in profit divergence.

Feb 22, 2017 – We entered a long position starter at 848.91 200 shares. Stops will be managed manually and will be held tight until trade is to upside of current range. Pensive about short term market range.

Feb 21, 2017 – Price is to the topside of the break-out and I will likely enter a long position over the next day or two. Bullish on this stock.

Feb 12, 2017 – We still like the $GOOGL stock / chart. Price recently broke to the upside of the triangle and didn’t hold but is threatening to trade above again at Friday close. We’re watching for an upside break that holds for an entry or a visit to the 200 MA (pink line) for an entry.

Feb 7, 2017 Member Update: We expect a signal from the Trump camp soon (late this week), and if positive, this will be a very strong play – watch close! This needs to be high on your radar going forward!

We like this chart. Watch for an upside break out of the triangle. The principles apply the same to $GOOG and $GOOGL charts fyi. Also, watch the MACD close, it looks primed for a move. Earnings are Thursday. If price breaks to downside I will update with levels to watch. Also, the is a chart below that shows upside target.

Mar 7, 2017 – Holding long and may add on dips now. Trading at 846.46.

Feb 21, 2017 – Trading at 839.48 in premarket we’re on the right side of this swing so far. Depending on price action I will look to add at pull backs. Very bullish this stock.

Feb 12, 2017 – Trade Alert! We entered a trade long at a cost average 822.72 for 100 shares as soon as price was upside the 20 MA. This is an aggressive trade (being that we didn’t wait for a pull-back to 50, 100 or 200). We have a tight stop on the trade at 804.00 (just below its recent low (this would be a broken trade in our opinion at that point). So we are hoping this week is a strong week for Amazon. If not our aggressive move will cost us.

$AMZN Amazon Swing Trading Member Chart – Compound Trading

Feb 7, 2017 Member Alert! We haven’t got a pull back to the 200 day and depending on how tech does with Trump we may or may not, however, in overnight trade (premarket) price is close to the 100 day and I may take a test long position. This is one of our favorite picks so we will be quite aggressive with our attempts to get in at an inflection – so we are thinking sometime in the next few days looks decent.

My fourth priority is Amazon. I don’t want to over simplify this trade – but the bottom line is I’m looking for a pull-back and an entry as close to that 200 day (pink line with green arrow) as possible. I don’t think this stock will stop anytime soon. DD to follow soon.

Feb 12, 2017 – This stock hasn’t slowed down since our entry at 2.59 (10000 shares) and doesn’t seem to want to return to the trendline support so our swing trade members can get in. It is trading perfectly in our prescribed range (albeit at the top) and closed at 3.90 on Friday – we have a 5.57 PT on it so I don’t if it is best to enter now – I wouldn’t unless it returns to the support line but some of the more aggressive swing trading members may want to consider it. Also, we will be ratcheting stops before earnings and even though earnings are expected to be strong we likely will not hold through earnings (or if we do it will be with tight stops).

My second priority is $CBMX. I am already in this swing and plan to enter in dips at the diagonal trend line (blue). Initial target area is around 5.57 with much greater potential upside. The Trump factor may cause this to come off a bit so my bias is toward late spring for first price target.

Feb 21, 2017 – We closed our position last week at 46.04 because sentiment in this sector started to turn. We may look at a re-entry, however, we are waiting for the crude oil resistance test to play out and would like to monitor sentiment.

Feb 12, 2017 – This has been a fantastic swing trade and many of our members have profited from it. We are holding and have moved up stops to a 5% drop.

It is currently trading at 45.70 and is up considerably for our members – our 2017 price target was 49.58 and our short term price targets were easily met.

It is also currently trading just above its 200 MA so we are watching close – if it loses the 200 MA we will exit likely. So if you are thinking of adding or a long trade here you want to watch the 200 MA.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/oaktree-schedules-fourth-quarter-full-133000267.html

Was trading at 37.57 – 38.00 when we originally started to look at it, currently trades at 41.65.

42.71 – 43.50 is our short term swing target (less than 3 months).

Feb 7, 2017 Member Alert! $OAK has met this swing trade target for our members – caution forward please!

49.58 is our 2017 target. No target date.

Our traders will be watching earnings (much like we did with Google last week and we will be doing with Amazon this week). Pending earnings and price action this will be when we enter a trade. Some of our swing traders have obviously seen decent gains since we first put this on our swing trading list a number of weeks back (good timing actually), but our traders have not taken a position yet.

I am looking for a pull-back to the 50 day (yellow arrow) or the 100 day preferably (blue arrow). If it gets away on me I’ll likely chase it and scale in 1/5th at a time.

Live Trading Chat Room Video Raw Footage and Transcript:

Two Part video (Part 1 embed is below and go to Compound Trading Youtube channel for Part 2 of live feed from day and other charting from the day)
 

Compound Trading Stock Chat-room Transcript:

Please note: Miscellaneous chatter removed from transcript and some discussions I will add notes with information I’ve gleaned in discussions online with traders on DM etc also for further explanation (noted with *). Most days at 9:30 ET market open there is moderator live broadcast explaining trades and at times during the day there is also live broadcast market updates and trade set-up explanations (so you have to scroll through video feed to market open etc to catch live broadcast portions – in future we will note in in transcript when we are on the mic so viewers can correlate time with transcript with video feed when reviewing trades). 

Note: We are testing a new trading room. This particular room does not list a time stamp with each chat entry – we are working on a fix. Also, please note, sometimes pieces of the transcript are missing (also something we are working on). But the video is raw and complete.

rob: so are u bullish on gold with the 200 swooping down under 20 ma
rob: ?
Spiegel: For daytrading stocks, should we always have the charts set to extended hours? I notice if you use just trading hours like most charting systems you get different MAs.
Spiegel: …which means the 20 would cross the 200 at a different point.
Spiegel: pronounced more as if it was Spiegle.

Morning momentum stocks on watch so far: Premarket Leaderboard: $CATB, $NORD, $CANF, $CAPR

Markets: $SPY $ES_F $SPX testing significant resistance, $GLD, $GDX are both under continued pressure – thinking $DGLD and $DUST. And of course Silver isn’t in the best of shape but will trade different than Gold. $USOIL, $WTIC tanked like EPIC said it would so we’ll see what range it gets next here – could get a short term pop but it is trending in a downward channel (again EPIC predicted and published in advance).

$LITE Earnings 9 days, Daily. MACD turn up? Price needs over 20MA and 50 MA and further confirmation. #earnings #watch #swingtrading

$XRT Trade going well. Long 41.67 Apr 10. Holding on MACD trend & SQZMOM trend. Short term Stoch RSI may come off. 200 MA test #swingtrading

Holds: Most holds are small to mid size holds in this order according to sizing: $ONTX, $SSH, $LGCY, $TRCH, $ESEA, $MGTI, $LIGA

Market Outlook :

NA

Per recent reports:

There are significant resistance clusters above recent highs in oil and the S&P so I will be very cautious to upside going forward until recent highs are taken out and confirmed. I see significant upside challenges in Oil and SPY with most recent highs being taken out.

If you are new to our trading service you should review recent blog posts, our YouTube Channel and at minimum our algorithm Twitter feeds because they do tell a story in terms of the market and how the inflections of the market determine our day to day trading. You will notice the algorithmic modelling has been undeniably accurate with many time-frames (intra-day, weeks and months out) so I myself have learned to respect their math (they have taken me from a 60% hit rate to 80% in my trading – all publicly posted live trades).

The algorithm Twitter feeds can be found here:$WTI (@EPICtheAlgo), $VIX (@VexatiousVIX), $SPY (@FREEDOMtheAlgo), $GLD (@ROSIEtheAlgo), $SLV (@SuperNovaAlgo), $DXY (@DXYUSD_Index). Our Swing Trading Twitter feed is found here: https://twitter.com/swingtrading_ct.  Our lead trader Twitter feed is here @curtmelonopoly and lead tech developer @hundalSHS.

Momentum Stocks (Market Open and Intra-Day):

I do trade morning momo stocks, but I do avoid risk – so often I avoid the first 30 minutes (gap and go) and trade momentum stocks later in the day after the wash-out looking for a snap-back. Just prior to open and shortly after open I post momentum stocks to the trade chat room (and Twitter and Stocktwits if I have time).

Some of my Favorite Set-Ups:

(1) Momentum Stock Wash-Outs for Snap Back, (2) Bad News Wash-outs on Stocks with High Institutional Ownership, (3) Getting on the Right Side of a Trend Change and scaling in my position and (4) Our Algorithm Set-Ups.

The momentum stocks (from previous days and morning trade) I continue to watch through the day for indicators that allow a trade.

Morning Stock Watch-Lists for my Favorite Set-Ups:

(1) Pre-Market Gainers Watch-List :Premarket Leaderboard: $CATB, $NORD, $CANF, $CAPR 16%, $UIS $CTIC $LLNW $APFH $MDR $QURE $PRTK $STRP $CAT $MVIS $IONS $BIIB I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

Stay tuned in Stock Chat Room for more pre-market stocks on watch.

Study:

For new readers, a review of our unlocked posts on our blog would help you get in to the story we are following with the securities listed in this newsletter.

Free scanners to find momentum stocks that you can easily review charts of for indicators that bring probability of your trade being successful up considerably. These are not useful for first 30 minute market open gap and go type plays (you need a good momentum scanner, level 2, and best to have hot-keys for the first 30 mins of gap and go trading)… but are very useful for intra day scalping and swing trading (start with trending stocks and then look at indicators intra for simple set-ups – study scan study scan study scan).

$XRT MACD still on sell but Stoch RSI (see other chart) is pinching at bottom of range. On watch.

Mar 7, 2017 – Watching close for a bounce. Stoch RSI on chart is near bottom so on high watch here.

Feb 27, 2017 – Trading at 43.72 this beat up sector seems to be ripe for a bounce. If we execute a trade on Monday it will be to test the waters and watch the market sentiment day to day – this and price action will determine how long we are in it. An interim target however would be 46.80 and would likely change as the trade progresses.

Feb 27, 2017 – “Eagles Materials Posted Record Revenues, Record Net Earnings and Record Net Earnings per Diluted Share. Its stock grew 60% in 2016 and still looks cheap.”

Eagle Materials is a riskier play than most we will add to our swing portfolio, but our DD on this one has us excited and we likely will take a long position early this week with a target of minimum 10% upside in next 90 days. We will however keep our stop tight.

Feb 27, 2017 – We find the $FIT trade interesting. Although we would never otherwise consider it and if we do enter today a long position it will be looked at as short term, we think there may be opportunity to swing trade it because it should be much lower considering its recent quarter… lower in that we expected a panic that did not occur. This seems bullish, or at minimum a likely “bargain” in our opinion.

Mar 7, 2017 – Holding long per Feb 22, 2017. Trading at 847.27.

Feb 22, 2017 – We entered a long position starter at 848.91 200 shares. Stops will be managed manually and will be held tight until trade is to upside of current range. Pensive about short term market range.

Feb 21, 2017 – Price is to the topside of the break-out and I will likely enter a long position over the next day or two. Bullish on this stock.

Feb 12, 2017 – We still like the $GOOGL stock / chart. Price recently broke to the upside of the triangle and didn’t hold but is threatening to trade above again at Friday close. We’re watching for an upside break that holds for an entry or a visit to the 200 MA (pink line) for an entry.

Feb 7, 2017 Member Update: We expect a signal from the Trump camp soon (late this week), and if positive, this will be a very strong play – watch close! This needs to be high on your radar going forward!

We like this chart. Watch for an upside break out of the triangle. The principles apply the same to $GOOG and $GOOGL charts fyi. Also, watch the MACD close, it looks primed for a move. Earnings are Thursday. If price breaks to downside I will update with levels to watch. Also, the is a chart below that shows upside target.

Feb 21, 2017 – Trading at 839.48 in premarket we’re on the right side of this swing so far. Depending on price action I will look to add at pull backs. Very bullish this stock.

Feb 12, 2017 – Trade Alert! We entered a trade long at a cost average 822.72 for 100 shares as soon as price was upside the 20 MA. This is an aggressive trade (being that we didn’t wait for a pull-back to 50, 100 or 200). We have a tight stop on the trade at 804.00 (just below its recent low (this would be a broken trade in our opinion at that point). So we are hoping this week is a strong week for Amazon. If not our aggressive move will cost us.

$AMZN Amazon Swing Trading Member Chart – Compound Trading

Feb 7, 2017 Member Alert! We haven’t got a pull back to the 200 day and depending on how tech does with Trump we may or may not, however, in overnight trade (premarket) price is close to the 100 day and I may take a test long position. This is one of our favorite picks so we will be quite aggressive with our attempts to get in at an inflection – so we are thinking sometime in the next few days looks decent.

My fourth priority is Amazon. I don’t want to over simplify this trade – but the bottom line is I’m looking for a pull-back and an entry as close to that 200 day (pink line with green arrow) as possible. I don’t think this stock will stop anytime soon. DD to follow soon.

Feb 12, 2017 – This stock hasn’t slowed down since our entry at 2.59 (10000 shares) and doesn’t seem to want to return to the trendline support so our swing trade members can get in. It is trading perfectly in our prescribed range (albeit at the top) and closed at 3.90 on Friday – we have a 5.57 PT on it so I don’t if it is best to enter now – I wouldn’t unless it returns to the support line but some of the more aggressive swing trading members may want to consider it. Also, we will be ratcheting stops before earnings and even though earnings are expected to be strong we likely will not hold through earnings (or if we do it will be with tight stops).

My second priority is $CBMX. I am already in this swing and plan to enter in dips at the diagonal trend line (blue). Initial target area is around 5.57 with much greater potential upside. The Trump factor may cause this to come off a bit so my bias is toward late spring for first price target.

Feb 21, 2017 – We closed our position last week at 46.04 because sentiment in this sector started to turn. We may look at a re-entry, however, we are waiting for the crude oil resistance test to play out and would like to monitor sentiment.

Feb 12, 2017 – This has been a fantastic swing trade and many of our members have profited from it. We are holding and have moved up stops to a 5% drop.

It is currently trading at 45.70 and is up considerably for our members – our 2017 price target was 49.58 and our short term price targets were easily met.

It is also currently trading just above its 200 MA so we are watching close – if it loses the 200 MA we will exit likely. So if you are thinking of adding or a long trade here you want to watch the 200 MA.

Mar 7, 2017 – We stopped out flat and are keeping it on watch list for now.

Feb 21, 2017 – Hold, managing stop. We like it, but it may stop out flat.

Feb 12, 2017 – We have our first entry in $SLCA at the 50 day 55.77 500 shares. We are going to watch how it handles the 20 MA. If it returns to our buy at 55.77 area we may cut bait.

$SLCA Swing Trade Member Stock Pick. Entry at 50 MA long for a tester.

Feb 7, 2017 Member Alert! We never did get that pull back, and I appreciate the notes from members that have done well with this swing nonetheless! However, caution is warranted entering this play with-out a pull-back.

My fifth priority is $SLCA. Again, another simple chart and it will require some patience. I see a pull-back coming and huge upside under the Trump inertia in to summer. I am looking for a pull-back to the 50 day (yellow arrow) or the 100 day preferably (blue arrow). If it gets away on me I’ll likely chase it and scale in 1/5th at a time.

April 20 – Trading 1.54 Holding.

April 11 – $TRCH Interesting premarket here also. Holding from 1.50 so not underwater now but #oil is getting really close to a YUGE wall  Setting stop at entry likely.

March 27 – Same. Hold. Will add at bottom of MACD turn and other indicators turn.

March 19 – Trading 1.41 holding.

Mar 12, 2017 – Holding position. MACD turned down and will add when MACD turns up. Holding 2000 at 1.50 trading at 1.36. Near the stop loss area but for myself this is a conviction trade based on Trump and this specific company. It is also a relatively small position.

Notes with respect to $SPY Price Extensions and Targets

Recent Trade – $SPY price action has been hitting our upside price extension targets for months now. The chart above includes the price extension targets for upward and downward trade.

Trading just the price extension targets we have provided on the upside and downside has proven a very profitable signal.

Also of importance, in addition to trading the price extensions, our traders have found the Fib resistance and support on the chart and the algorithmic quadrants excellent signals intra-day for support and resistance.

Fibonacci – The Fibonacci levels have been predictable so we are leaving them as they are.

Trading Quadrants – The trading quadrants have become predictable – we are leaving them as they are.

Symmetry Extension Targets – The extension price targets we have published the last number of months now have hit the price targets to upside and downside near perfect so they are becoming very predictable! Trade the outside ranges for optimum return and predictability.

Most probable downside price target if trade is in a downtrend is in 233.33 area before a decision.

Most probable upside price target if trade is in an uptrend is in 241.50 area before a decision.

Time / Price Cycles – There are currently no significant cycles in the charting.

Trading Bias – Although the warning below is still in place, our traders do have considerable high expectations that previous highs will be tested and / or taken out soon. Unless of course a geo political situation arises to derail the market. IN THE SHORT TERM HOWEVER price is expected to rest some after the recent break out.

Warning per recent reports;

This is a considerable warning because price has not traded above previous high since we alerted members to this divergence in the algorithm: Current bias is to the upside target, however, there is a divergence in the upward trade extension makes the target a double topped target, which is divergent from recent trade, which does cause us to pause.

Good luck with your trades and look forward to seeing you in the room!
