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).

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 : $DAC 18%, $MEIP 16% $JILL 13% $ETRM $MTL $EXAS $CBIO $FRO $ADI $DWT $BORN $SCO $SYT $GLYC $ARRY $MBVX $DGAZ $BORN  I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

(2) Pre-market Decliners Watch-List : $UVXY $TVIX $JDST $DUST $ACIA $KORS $WLL $MRO $UWT $CLF $GUSH $DGAZ $LABD  I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

(3) Other Watch-List:

(4) Regular Algo Charting Watch-List: Gold $GC_F $GLD, Miners $GDX ($NUGT, $DUST, $JDST, $JNUG), Silver $SLV $SI_F ($USLV, $DSLV), Crude Oil FX: $USOIL $WTI ($UWTI, $DWTI, $USO, $UCO, $CL_F, $UWT, $DWT), Natural Gas $NG_F ($UGAZ, $DGAZ), S & P 500 $SPY $ES_F ($SPXL, $SPXS), US Dollar Index $DXY ($UUP), Volatility $VIX ($TVIX, $UVXY, $XIV)

(5) Recent Upgrades: $VALE $INCR $FRAN $VMW $AKTX $DCI $FRO as time allows I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

(6) Recent Downgrades: $KOP $XTLY $MOH $IRBT $ING $EC as time allows 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).

Welcome to the Compound Trading Weekly Swing Trading Stocks for the Week of May 29, 2017.  $MXIM, $LIT, $ATHM, $NFLX, $TAN, $BA, $BWA, $BABA, $WYNN … and more.

Email us at info@compoundtrading.com anytime with any questions about any of the swing trades listed below. Or, if we get bogged down private message Curtis in trade room or direct message him on Twitter. Market hours are tough but we endeavor to get back to everyone after market each day.

Notices:

Important Service Upgrade Notice: To receive alerts be sure we have your email and you have followed our Twitter alert service at @SwingAlerts_CT. I know many have expressed interest in the email only, but the Twitter option is available going forward for those that prefer that. Please bear with us for a few days as we integrate and orientate ourselves to this new function in our daily routines.

This report is 2 of 3 reports weekly. 

You can expect the third report within in 48 hours of this report.

We will categorize our coverage soon because we are following more than we expected when we first started the service..

When managing your trades with the weekly reports keep in mind that you will have to invest an hour or two a week to check the indicators mentioned for buy and sell triggers. I was asked recently why we do not usually (although we do sometimes) include precise entry and exit points. The reason is simple, they don’t work – those services have terrible results.

Swing trading success, even with a service, does require “some” maintenance on the part of the user, although the new live alert service will take much of that burden off the user as we know many of our users have busy lives. It is the indicators lining up that signal a trade long entry or an exit. In our case rely heavily on MACD on daily or weekly (or Stoch RSI and Moving averages) but indicators we are basing our trade entry and exits on are listed with each trade so any user that does even moderate trade management will know when the indicator(s) have turn with or against the trade.

Intra-week you can always DM myself on Twitter or email with specific questions regarding trades you are considering for assistance. But it is critical that you attend to the maintenance of your signals at least once a week if not twice and set stops and preferably alarms so that intra-week you can enter or exit. If nothing else you can always book some coaching time and I’ll assist also (although we are at a point of waiting list for the coaching, at minimum you can get on list or for immediate help as I said please DM or email).

IF WE DON’T GET BACK TO YOU RIGHT AWAY it is usually because we are pressured with deadlines or are trading.

May 3 – April 25 148.40 Long 500 shares April 25 when MACD turned up per below. Trading 156.28. MACD trending up, SQZMOM trending up and Stoch RSI at top and may come off short term – so a short term turn down is possible here. Will likely re-add when STOCH RSI comes off and turns back up as long as MACD is trending up still and has room to top.

April 24 – Trading 142.87. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 143.75 – waiting for MACD to turn up.

April 10 – We closed flat 145.50. Trading 142.80. Waiting for MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM to turn green for entry long.

April 4 – March 29 we entered 145.50 500 shares when MACD turned up per watch trigger below. Stop is at flat at entry and we will re-enter if we have to. Will look at adding pending triggers – will advise.

$NFLX Live chart with indicators https://www.tradingview.com/chart/NFLX/ozKJQ8t4-NFLX-March-29-we-entered-swing-trade-145-50-when-MACD-turned-t/

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

$GSIT

May 31 – Trading 5.59. Same.

May 23 – Trading 7.99. Watching per below.

May 17 – Trading 7.91. All the indicators are indecisive. Waiting.

May 9 – Trading 7.40. See below.

May 3 – Trading 8.03. MACD pinching. Will enter long when MACD turns up AND be sure price is above moving averages and 20 MA is in fact over 50 MA. 20 50 100 200 all in order with price above in other words. Should be soon.

April 24 – Trading 7.96. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 7.63. MACD still trending down. Waiting for it to turn up.

April 10 – Trading 8.18, Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $GSIT finally cooling off and coming back to earth. Watching that MACD very close for a turn up (after it returns to bottom hopefully).

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and closed Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

$AXP

May 31 – Trading 77.05. Same.

May 23 – Watching. Indicators indecisive.

May 17 – Trading 78. Sitting on 200 MA on weekly. On daily price is under 20 and 50 MA with MACD turned down. Watching.

May 9 – Trading 78.27. Closed 78.74 May 4 when MACD crossed down from 78.01 long. We still like this stock so we are watching close for indicators to turn back up.

May 3 – Trading 79.54. Holding long while MACD trends up and price above entry and 20 MA is above 50 MA. Stoch RSI is coming off so we expect some downward pressure short term.

April 24 – Trading 79.63. Long 78.01 500 shares April 20 when MACD turned up. Watching for MACD, Stoch RSI to remain, and SQZMOM to turn green for possible add.

$AXP, Swing, Trading, Stock, Chart

$AXP Swing Trade Going Well. MACD turned up for long 78.01 test.

April 19 – Trading 75.50. MACD getting close to bottom. On watch for MACD cross up.

April 10 – Trading 77.77. Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to line up. Need volume & power. #swingtrading $AXP Price Trigger Power Trade Risk Reward – PTPTRR #trading Over the Wall!

$AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to all line up. Need volume and power. #swingtrading

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

May 31 – Trading 16.41. Same.

May 23 – Trading 16.95. Watching.

May 17 – Trading 17.14. On daily MACD is turned up, waiting on results of 20 MA test (happening now). On weekly MACD is turned down and would like to see that crossed up.

May 9 – Trading 16.26. See below.

May 3  – Trading 16.37. Watching. All indicators pointing down.

April 24 – Trading 19.25 watching. Earnings on deck.

April 19 – Trading 19.46. Indicator indecision. Waiting on clarity.

April 10 – Waiting on MACD and Stoch RSI to cross and turn up for long. SQZMOM is green now. Trading 19.09.

April 4 – $ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

$ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

March 27 – Very close now. SQZMOM just turned green, MA’s are starting to line up but not all yet, Stoch RSI is turned down at top of range so I would like to see it at bottom when we enter and the MACD is turned up. So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

May 3 – Trading 17.67. $TAN Watching MACD turned up price over 20 MA SQZMOM green. Need price over 50 MA with 20 MA breach 50 MA.

$TAN Live Chart Link: https://www.tradingview.com/chart/TAN/7JpW1gSP-TAN-Watching-MACD-turned-up-price-over-20-MA-SQZMOM-green-Need/

This is one of those where we are early. In other words the price isn’t above all MA’s yet. So one could take the trade as long as MACD is up and preferably long entry timed when 20 MA is about to breach 50 MA and price is above. But watch out for the 200 MA above.

$TAN, Chart, Swing, Trade

$TAN Watching MACD turned up price over 20 MA SQZMOM green. Need price over 50 MA with 20 MA breach 50 MA.

April 24 – Trading 17.04. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 17.39. This one is getting close. Stoch RSI has to come off and then turn up. SQZMOM is almost green and MACD cross up. When those line up we will take a long position.

April 10 – Trading 17.20, Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch.  Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – NA

Mar 27 – $TAN chart is now “broken” and price is on its way to the lower pivot around 16.44. All indicators are pointing to down. It closed Friday at 17.29. So we will keenly watch it as it nears the lower pivot and see if the indicators line up for a long trade. If it lost lower pivot  we may even consider a short side entry pending indicators.

Mar 20 – Nice reversal play if it turns out. In addition to below watch the 200 MA as resistance if you go long.

$TAN Reversal Play. Daily MACD needs to turn up, Stoch RSI is up, SQZMOM needs to turn up. 100 MA about to cross 50 MA – bullish.

May 17 – $VRX Early stages of possible bottom bounce. SQMOM green, 20 MA about to breach 50 MA price still under 200 MA, MACD up. We may trade this more as a daytrade . swingtrade until it firms above 200 MA.

$VRX Chart

$VRX Early stages of possible bottom bounce. SQMOM green, 20 MA about to breach 50 MA price still under 200 MA, MACD up

May 9 – Trading 9.77. See below.

May 3 – Trading 10.50. MACD is turned up and the SQZMOM has not confirmed green. Earnings in six days so watch for that. The MA’s are exactly like the $TAN scenario above so the same rules apply. We are not entering yet but may at any second. Again it is an early trade because you want price above the 200 MA and 20 MA to breach 20 MA that is perfect timing (with MACD trending up). But many people take these early at this point. Refer to considerations noted above with $TAN also. Same set-up.

April 24 – Trading 8.51 Watching.

April 19 – Trading 8.95. Not ready.

Apr 10 – Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – I thought I’d run a poll on my Twitter feed to help us with this one.

$VRX Premarket live chart https://www.tradingview.com/chart/VRX/F7bVqHl7-VRX-Premarket-up-1-MACD-cross-flat-could-this-be-bottom/

March 27 – $VRX continues stepping down on the chart… per below, really important to wait for all the indicators to line up. So we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – This was looking like it was going to curl up last week and bounce but it failed. A great example of carefully watching a falling knife indicators before taking a long position. Use patience and when all indicators in play take a long.

$VRX Bottom Play. Daily MACD needs to turn, Stoch RSI turning up, SQZMOM needs to turn then as MA cross-overs occur it will strengthen.

May 31 – Trading 24.48. Watching. 

May 23 – Trading 25.00. Watching for bottom bounce to form. MACD up on daily right now.

May 17 –  Trading 24.53. Waiting on MACD turn cross up on daily before anything.

May 9 – Trading 23.50. See below. Not ready.

May 3 – Trading 23.70. Closed 33.57 1000 shares before earnings on a 29.60 buy. Never hold through earnings unless you are unusually confident (yes we did recently with $GOOGL and $AMZN but very unusual for us to do that). Anyway, watching now. Downdraft was intense from forward guidance.

April 24 – Trading 30.82. Holding 1000 shares 29.60.

April 19 – Trading 30.51. April 12 MACD turned up opened long 29.60 1000 shares.

April 10 – Trading 28.40. Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD cross and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – No change.

March 27 – Price failed when it had to poke through 100 MA and continue – it failed and is on its way (possibly) to the previous low. So here, as with $VRX we employ patience – but get ready because the long in this one will be decent. Use the indicators noted below.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

May 23 – Trading 125.11. Watching for set up.

May 17 – Trading 126.91 coming up on underside of 200 MA test on weekly. MACD on daily is about to cross up. Will wait for MACD on daily and assess.

May 9 – Stopped flat on May 5, 2017. Watching SQZMOM, Stoch RSI, MACD, volume indicators now for a turn.

May 3 – Trading 125.55. Long 122.56 April 25 when MACD turned up (per below) and watching for continuation in MACD and price. Will exit if MACD turns down or price hits our entry. We may even add. It looks good.

April 24 – Trading 114.89. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 115.95. MACD trending down. Waiting for bottom and turn up. It has a ways to go.

April 10 – Closed 500 shares Friday 117.20. Trading 116.50. Watching MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM for reset at bottom and turn for re-entry.

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided.

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one.

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

April 10 – Trading 30.84 holding. Long at 30.59. Tight stop.

April 5 – We opened a tight long position (so stop will be tight because you can always re-enter and metals charts still have to confirm so we are a tad early here) long 30.59 500 shares will add if it confirms and will cut bait if it comes off at most 2% and re-enter. Indicators look good BUT we are early. Use caution until metals etc confirm.

$XME Metals and Mining ETF Above 21 ema 8 ema 20 MA 200 MA MACD turned up SQZMOM turned green today

March 27 – Price action has been poor since last report, the 200 MA is just below price now so we are going to see if the indicators line up for a bounce long position.

March 20 – MACD is pinching and about to turn up, also waiting for price above 20 MA. This is a great looking chart and an argument could be made that a long position before everything lines up as I noted is sound. It’s a great looking chart because MACD is bottom (for clarity), so when it turns if all other indicators look good there should be room for a decent trade. Caution should be noted that now after having gone through a number of charts this evening the market is at a decision so any swing trades should be considered at length and stops should be tight IMO.

March 27 – Almost a replay from last week (the indicators), so we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – Like so many of the charts this week, there is indecision. However, if the indicators line up this has excellent upside potential. The MACD pinching at the bottom is key IMO.

April 5 – $XLE chart is very similar to $RIG and others in this space, HOWEVER, it is still under 200 MA. On watch for break of 200 MA.

March 27 – The 50 has crossed the 100 and the 20 the 200 to downside – this is very bearish in the near term. Watching. It does qualify as a short and best when MACD at top turning down and Stoch RSI at top turning down with confirmation of price action and MA’s.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Needs 200 day and to trade above 20 MA for long or it becomes a short.

March 20 – MACD is pinching on the turn back up – waiting for it to turn up and 45.50 to hold for one day to confirm break out. Or, on downdraft I would look at a 100 MA long entry also.

S&P 500 $SPY Algorithm Update Wednesday May 31, 2017 $ES_F ($SPXL, $SPXS) Chart Observations

Good morning! My name is Freedom the $SPY Algo. Welcome to my new S&P trade report for Compound Trading.

Below you will find algorithmic model charting based on Fibonacci extensions, timing and various other principles. It is what our traders are using to trade the S & P 500. Although not as developed as our Oil algorithm, it is now use able in a complete fashion. Future updates will be more regular and more specific indicators added as we go. Thank you for your patience and support. You guys have been incredible.

You will find the charts hard to get used to. Best way to get used to them is to use them on tight time frames at first. Over the coming days we will add more and more instruction but for now simply use every line horizontal or diagonal as a support and resistance decision. And then over coming days we’ll show you which are more probable to hold and hierarchy of importance etc.

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:

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).

Good Morning Swing Traders and Welcome to the Compound Trading Weekly Swing Trading updates (1 of 3 this week) for the Week of May 29, 2017! $RCL, $JKS, $CTSH, $TSLA, $FEYE, $PCRX, $PBR, $NVO, $EWZ, $AGN, $IBB and more …  

Email us at info@compoundtrading.com anytime with any questions about any of the swing trades listed below. Or, if we get bogged down private message Curtis in trade room or direct message him on Twitter. Market hours are tough but we endeavor to get back to everyone after market each day.

Notices:

Good morning!

This report is the story of recent run-ups that I likely should have closed positions on (some members notified me they were) but I didn’t – so we’ll see if I’ll be sorry I didn’t take the momo props to close out. If nothing else I won’t lose – but still. The list has been a good list in this one of three – they’ve been profit makers or flat for the most part.

Also noticeable on this list is that some are right at the edge of being perfect long set-ups – they could start triggering today in trade for sure.

Twitter alert service at @SwingAlerts_CT. I know many have expressed interest in the email only, but the Twitter option is available going forward for those that prefer that. Please bear with us as we integrate and orientate ourselves to this new function in our daily routines.

This report (1 of 3) focuses on the more recent stocks we have added to our swing trading set-up coverage. They include; $TSLA, $SNAP, $VGX, $AAU, $AMMJ, $AGN, $CTSH, $IBB, $FEYE, $LACDF, $PCRX, $PBR, $EWZ and $JKS. $RCL (Royal Caribbean) has been added to coverage on this list.

We are also going to categorize our coverage soon because we are following more than we expected when we first started the service..

When managing your trades with the weekly reports keep in mind that you will have to invest an hour or two a week to check the indicators mentioned for buy and sell triggers. I was asked recently why we do not usually (although we do sometimes) include precise entry and exit points. The reason is simple, they don’t work – those services have terrible results.

Swing trading success, even with a service, does require “some” maintenance on the part of the user, although the new live alert service will take much of that burden off the user as we know many of our users have busy lives. It is the indicators lining up that signal a trade long entry or an exit. In our case rely heavily on MACD on daily or weekly (or Stoch RSI and Moving averages) but indicators we are basing our trade entry and exits on are listed with each trade so any user that does even moderate trade management will know when the indicator(s) have turn with or against the trade.

Intra-week you can always DM myself on Twitter or email with specific questions regarding trades you are considering for assistance. But it is critical that you attend to the maintenance of your signals at least once a week if not twice and set stops and preferably alarms so that intra-week you can enter or exit. If nothing else you can always book some coaching time and I’ll assist also (although we are at a point of waiting list for the coaching, at minimum you can get on list or for immediate help as I said please DM or email).

IF WE DON’T GET BACK TO YOU RIGHT AWAY it is usually because we are pressured with deadlines or are trading.

$FEYE – Fire Eye Inc.

May 30 – Trading 14.80. Holding 14.40 entry. Stop set at entry now. Did hit 16.26 and should have closed there – or when MACD turned down. Here again a few members notified they closed so congrats on that swing! It does have 50 MA crossing / breaching 200 MA currently on daily so that is actually bullish. So it is indecisive.

May 22 – Trading 14.95. Holding from 14.40. Weekly SQZMOM green and trending up, MACD trending up, 100 MA resistance at 19.58 intra. Daily not as good – MACD possibly turning down, SQZMOM green but turning down but on positive side 50 MA may breach 200 MA to upside. Holding for now.

May 15 – Trading 14.97. May 11 Long 14.40 when 20 MA breached 50 MA (per set-up May 8 below). Stop 13.99. 500 shares. Stoch RSI is on its way down and we’re watching closely. Did not get the pop we wanted – a tad concerned. Caution warranted.

May 8 – $FEYE In break-out. Waiting for 20 MA to breach 200 MA to upside for long with price above and time indicators right – MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM and volume.

$TSLA – Tesla

May 30 – Trading 325.50 in premarket. Chart turning bullish. MACD about to turn up, Stoch RSI turned up, near 52 week high break out! 

May 22 – Trading 310.57. MACD is still trending down on daily so we are confident we are getting our pullback and then we’ll consider a long at that point (that MACD curls up).

May 15 – Trading 317.58. Still looking for a better pull-back entry.

May 8 – Trading 311.75. MACD is trending down (cooling), Stoch RSI isn’t yet, and SQZMOM is trending down. Waiting for the indicators to bottom and turn up for long if MA’s confirm.

We decided to start covering Tesla because we feel it is out of the woods so to speak. There are many factors, but the bottom line is we are ready to trade this long term. It is revved right now, but it won’t be for long and we expect an entry sooner than later based on the simple charting below.

May 1 – Waiting. It is too heated. Stoch RSI at bottom turned up, MACD at top indecision however, SQZMOM green but trending down.

April 21 – Trading 302.80. Stoch RSI is at bottom likely to curl up, MACD at top crossed down, squeeze momentum indicator green but turning down, holding 8 ema. Waiting for indicators to line up.

April 13, 2017 – $TSLA Daily – Waiting on Stoch RSI to bottom, MACD down and turn up with MA’s on right side for a long position.

Wednesday May 24 #EIA Report ($USOIL, $WTI, $CL_F)  EPIC the Oil Algorithm Webinar.

MULTI-USERS: Institutional / commercial platform now available.

PATENT PHASE: I am now in patent application phase. Stay tuned for agreements concerning disclosure and use coming to members.

SOFTWARE: My algorithmic charting is going to developer coding phase early 2017 for our trader’s dashboard program. Please review my algorithm development process and about my oil algorithm story on our website www.compoundtrading.com and my oil algo charting posts on my Twitter feed and this blog.

HOW MY ALGORITHM WORKS: I am an algorithm in development. My math is based on traditional indicators (up to fifty at any given time each weighted on win ratio merit – all not shown on chart at any given time) – such as simple math calculations relating to price and volume, Fibonacci, simple pivots, moving averages, Gann, Schiff and various other charting, geometric and mathematical factors. I do not yet have AI or Geo Political integration – only math as it relates to traditional indicators with the primary goal being probabilities. I am not a high frequency or bot type algorithm – I am represented on and used on a traditional trading chart as one would normally use as a probability indicator. The goal is to provide our trader’s with an edge when triggering entries and exits on trades with instruments that rely on the price of crude oil (specifically FX: $USOIL $WTI and transitioning to futures in our new 24 hour oil trading room).

Below you will find my simplified view of levels that can be used on a traditional chart (both intra-day and as a swing trader or investor). This work, and subsequent trading, should be considered one decision at a time, “if this happens then this or this are my targets”… price – trigger – trade and so on. Questions to; info@compoundtrading.com, message our lead trader on Twitter, or message a lead trader privately in the trade room.

May 30, 2017

Most predictable trade is the significant resistance cluster well overhead (see previous posts) that is trending downward slowly. If we trade within near range I will update the cluster for our traders.

Next most predictable trade (Wide trading range primary resistance and support). Upper resistance at 50.98 (grey arrow) lower resistance 47.50 (grey arrow).

Next most predictable trade (Support and resistance of channels). On the charts below an upward trending trade channel is presented and a downward trending channel option (channels are diagonal dotted lines and purple arrows help show direction and width of channel). There is another downward trending channel running below the one shown that is also an option.

Next most predictable trade (Support and resistance of 30 min quadrants and Fibonacci support and resistance). The diagonal lines make up quadrants and the Fib support and resistance lines are the horizontal lines (there are also natural support and resistance lines shown in purple).

Last trade signal we use are the time and price targets – unless they are very predictable, which they have not been in recent trade. When trade is in a significant uptrend or downtrend the targets become very precise and move up the indicator priority list quick. Current and most recent trade is not conducive to target predictability.

Multi Week Trading Range for Swing Trading:

Note: Be careful with the prices you see in the purple boxes on the right of the chart – they do not line up on chart for price action (they are for indicators).

Trade the ranges noted above.

Diagonal Trend Lines:

Diagonal trend-lines (blue). Diagonal trend-lines are critical inflection points. Please review many of my recent posts so you can learn about how important these diagonal trend-lines are. If one is breached you can look to pull-back to next diagonal blue trend line about 90% of the time. Also pay attention to how thick the lines are – the thicker the line the more important because they represent extensions from previous time / price cycles.

Remember you can come in to the chat room to message the trader and REMEMBER I have posted a live chart link earlier in this post so if you can’t see the lines well on this chart above you can go to the live chart link and watch for member live algo chart links through-out the day in your email inbox!

The diagonal trend-lines are marked on main chart above.

Conventional Charting Observations: 

Trade is is sitting on 50 MA (purple line) and 200 MA (pink line) – indecision. Trade held thin red line support (trendline) and main channel support and upper channel resistance.

Careful with that 50 MA crosses the 100 MA – you want those opposite to be bullish. Careful price stays above them also. Price above 200 MA. Stoch RSI at top so it would make sense for it to come off soon.

Fibonacci Levels:

Watch the lines for support and resistance. Careful using them as traditional retracement levels with crude because the algo lines etc are more dominant / predictable. But the Fib lines are excellent indicators for intra-day trade support and resistance.

The Fibonacci lines are marked on main chart above.

Horizontal Trend-Lines (purple):

Horizontal trend-lines are not as important as the other indicators reviewed above, however, they do serve as important resistance and support intra-day for tight trading and they are important if thick (in other words they come from previous time / price cycles). WE STARTED TO REPRESENT THE REALLY IMPORTANT LINES IN YELLOW FYI FOR EASE. Refer to chart for current applicable horizontal trend-lines.

Horizontal trend-lines are marked on charts above.

Oil Time / Price Cycles:

Watch your email and / or my Twitter feed for time price cycles they may start to terminate.

Time / price cycles are the single most important indicator and my record calling them is near 100% – since inception seven months ago. The reason they are so important is that a trader does not want to be holding a crude oil instrument at termination of a time cycle if not absolutely sure if price will go up or down. A trade may choose to enter a large position in advance of a time price cycle termination IF THERE IS A HIGH PROBABILITY OF A DIRECTION IN PRICE and if the market is trading at a really important pivot area. In other words, if the market is trading at the bottom of the upward trending channel at a support (yellow lines) and we knew there was a significant probability of a time cycle about to terminate a trader may enter with a long position. The price really spikes or drops significantly when these important time cycles terminate.

The problem with time / price cycle terminations is they change from minute to minute (depending on where price is on the chart) so you have to be in the trade room to get the alert. Our lead traders will do everything they can in future to send these on SMS but we have to be careful because it can be difficult with so much going on in the room. The reason they (time cycles) change is because they are actually represented by or are geometric shapes in the chart – I know it sounds odd but I have (as I mentioned) hit these calls just shy of 100%. The oil political people know the same algorithmic modeling principles and they ALWAYS TIME THEIR BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS AROUND THE TIME PRICE CYCLE TERMINATIONS.

So if you can picture a triangle on the chart – and price is trading in the triangle – and price is going to come to the edge of the triangle and there is a significant support or resistance or an algo line terminating there too or a target (those type of indications)… then we know there is a high probability of a time and price change. In other words, it is where there are clusters of algorithm points that cross and when price is going to cross over that cluster is where they are. And these are represented on all the different time frames – the larger the time frame – the larger the time price cycle termination – the larger the spike or downdraft. This is where we establish our intra-day quadrants from for sniping trades (which we will put in to the room soon because it looks like the geo political rhetoric is over for a while making them more predictable). Difficult to explain in short. So we will do our best to SMS alert these in future.

Also, the real large or important time / price cycle terminations we know far in advance and they can be put in these newsletters.

If you review my Epic the Oil Algo Twitter feed, my blog posts and my story on our website you will get a feel for how accurate these calls are.

Alpha Algo Trading Trend-Lines (Primary – Red dotted lines. Secondary – White dotted lines):

To determine which algo line is most alpha (or probable) intra day, it is the nearest line to price action. This can also help you determine the trend of trade. If the algo line is trending up the price will follow it up until price is tested at an algorithm indicator (the main tests are diagonal trendlines, horizontal trendlines, time / price cycles etc – as I have shared with you). This is why it is important to watch all the lines because they are all support and resistance. To keep it simple trade the range (yellow lines) as I’ve mentioned but keep an eye on these indicators.

Current Alpha Algo Targets (Red circles):

Your closest target that crude is trending toward is always the most probable. Crude is currently trending toward a target (red circles on chart) Then, your second most probable is the one that is up or down trend depending on whether general price is in an upward or downtrend for the most recent week or so and what your other indicators look like (such as the MA’s I explained above).

The other way to determine which targets are in play is actually quite simple, you will notice that crude trades between the channel lines up and down and up and down and there are various support and resistance along the way. If it hits a target at the top of the channel you can bet most times (unless the next day like today) that the next target hit will be at the bottom of the channel.

Wait for the price to trend toward a target and take your position and watch as price gets closer and closer to the target. Remember, that the machines trade from decision to decision – or in other words from support to next resistance or resistance to next support or when the times come each week on Tuesday Wednesday and Friday they will trend toward the target that market price action determines they go to.

Our lead trader will explain more in the room and do not hesitate to ask our lead trader in the room by private message or on twitter to explain intra day decisions.

Oil Intra-Day Algo Trading Quadrants (white dotted lines):

Intra-day trading quadrants are available on all time – cycles and all of them are not detailed on this charting. The charting above represents the 30 minute trading quadrants. If you require tighter time-frames please email us and we will update charting for the time cycle you are looking for.

Trading quadrants are simply support and resistance lines that can assist your intra-day trading – they are not alpha or primary support and resistance by any measure. Price action does however typically move more assertively when leaving a trading quadrant.

Indicator Methods:

As explained above, my algorithm is a consideration of up to fifty traditional indicators at any one time – each one given its own weight in accordance to its accuracy (win rate). This is how we establish the probability of specific targets hitting (we call them alpha algo targets).

Alpha Algo Targets, Algo Trend-lines, Algo Timing, Quadrants for Intra Snipes:

Algo targets are the red circles – they correspond with important times each week in oil reporting land. Tuesday 4:30 PM, Wednesday 10:30 AM and Friday at 1:00 PM. The red dotted diagonal lines are the algo trend-lines. And the vertical dotted (red or green) are marking the important times each week. You will find that the price of crude will hit one of the alpha algo targets about 90% of the time. In the absence of market direction the machines take price to the next algo line and/or target. Understanding how the price of crude reacts to the algos and how they move price from target to target is critical for intra-day and swing trading crude oil and associated instruments.

You will notice that price action of crude will use these algo trend-lines and act as support and resistance, and that price also often violently moves when an alpha algo line is breached either upward or downward.

We cover this in much more detail in the member updates, trading room. A review of my Twitter feed and previous blog posts will help you understand the relation of these indicators. We will start posting video blogs (for my subscribers) on YouTube (in addition to my daily blog posts) for swing traders that work during regular trading hours.

Also… we will cover how to establish algo trend-lines and price targets future forward (as you have seen me do on my Twitter feed for some time now).

Conclusion:

See you in the live trade room! And again, if you struggle to know how to use these indicators as a trader’s edge, it is recommended (if you have earnestly reviewed all of our documentation first) that you obtain private coaching prior to trading a real account with real money – we recommend you use a paper trading account at first.

You can also send specific questions to our email inbox at info@compoundtrading.com – if you do this be sure to ask a specific question so it can be answered specifically. When the 24 hour oil trading room opens you will have ample opportunity in that 24 hour room to ask questions also.

Part Six b) of the “Freedom Traders” Series:  Trading Set-ups. Video Explains Predictable Winning Process.

This post is the video / blog companion to “Trading Set-ups. How-To Develop a Systematic – Predictable Process. Part 6 a) “Freedom Traders” Series”. It is a $STUDY for Traders Endeavoring to Trade With a High Degree of Probability.

Introduction.

The video below will provide overview explanations of the various trade set-ups I use with different types of trading I do (Swing Trading, Day Trading and Algorithmic Model Trading).

I endeavor in this series of posts to first provide an overview of my trading systems and through subsequent posts I will break-out the details of each trade set-up I use.

Check back to the posts in this section (section 6 of the Freedom Traders series) because 6 a. and 6 b. will be updated regularly with new set-ups added to the overview lists and the subsequent posts in section 6 will have more and more specific trade set-up videos and blog posts included in the series.

The Purpose.

As explained in the introduction to this series (in Part 6 a), the purpose of this part of the series is to assist traders in developing their own predictable trading systems.

A large part of a successful trading plan is having a predictable trading system that you can rely on – a “rules-based trading process”.

Finding at least one trading system that will work the majority of the time, that is easy to use, fits your personality, is predictable and easily reproducible is key.

Trading Set-Ups Overview: Overview Video Number One.

This video touches on a number of chart set-ups / indicators / disciplines specific to day trading and swing trading and not so much algorithmic chart modeling. It is approximately 30 minutes in length and it provides a working foundation (overview) of the type of trading I execute.

You won’t find high flying ideas, hot new stocks of the week or some other high flying idea here.

You will however find systematic trading principles that will return 80% + win rates. Very predictable set-ups that can be duplicated with a high degree of success. Below the video are some itemized notes reflecting the content of the video.

Topics in Trade Set-ups Video 1:

  • Description of types of trading I do.
    • Day Trading, Swing Trading, Algorithmic Model Trading.
  • Chart Example Used for Video.

    • Provides opportunity for members to ask questions about their own chart and trade set-ups.
  • Trading Set-Up # 1 – Price Breach of 200 MA on Daily Chart.
    • The predictable trade is at the breach of the 200 MA.
    • The 20 MA breaches the 50 MA, the 20 MA breaches the 100 MA, the 20 MA breaches the 200 MA.
    • Entering long based on the daily chart and taking sell triggers on lower chart time-frames (opposite action of moving averages with price below instead of price above).
    • Trading the bowl and break-out above the 200 MA.
    • Confirming the bottom play with the early indicator of MACD.
    • I rely heavily on MACD for swing trading platform.
    • Stoch RSI started to rise at same time MACD started to signal bottom.
    • Stoch RSI helps time trade.
    • Increasing volume is critical.
    • SQZMOM confirmed bottom with trend up.
  • Trading Set-up # 2 – Bottom Play Prior to Breach of 200 MA on Daily Chart.
    • MACD crosses, Stoch RSI crosses up, SQZMOM trends up.
    • Test of price to 20 MA and indicators cross back up then test of 50 MA etc.
    • Trading and testing through the moving averages until trade gets above 200 MA and then you’re in to trading set-up #1.
  • Chart Time-Frames and MA Action are Critical for Trading the Stock (Timing entries and exits).
    • Confirming your trade bias through looking at the different time frames including weekly, daily, hourly, 30 minute, 15 minute, 5 minute, 3 minute and 1 minute charts depending on your time-frame.
    • Fibonacci should confirm the moving averages as support and resistance points on the chart.
    • Moving averages are a modern representation of the tape.
    • Timing entries and exits based on indicators.
    • Price above MA’s is critical in bullish bias trade and opposite is true for bearish outlook on various time frames and exits can be timed in trade.
    • Example Long Set-Up at 52.05 on chart culminating in sell signal at 70.35 – a 40% increase before you get sell signal on chart.
    • Trading through the MA’s before the 200 MA breach is possible (bottom play – trade set-up #2).
  • Chart Resistance and Support Levels.
    • Fibonacci, Natural Horizontal Chart Resistance and Moving Averages.
  • Trading Earnings.
    • I rarely hold through earnings. I sell in to and re-enter after earnings.
    • Low risk trading is my goal.
  • Algorithmic Modeling and Fibonacci.
    • Basic algorithm quadrants and diagonal resistance.
  • $FSLR Chart Examined for a Day-Trade.
    • Moving through the time-frames and various places to enter your trade – what quantifies bullish and bearish and timing your trade.
    • A day trade hopefully becomes a swing or trend trade. 14% ROI on monthly trade example.
    • Enter on tight time-frame (after confirming your wide time-frames set-up).
    • Confirming your entry with “power”. Avoiding getting cut up with fast exits. Timing trades with power.
    • Price, Trigger, Power, Trade, Risk, Reward. PTPTRR. Being ready for the power trade with the moving average set-ups.
    • Legging in 20% at a time. Five leg principle in a move.
    • Knowing where your most likely resistance is in the move and exiting the trade.

Closing.

That concludes the video / blog portion of the trade set ups overview that accompanies “Trading Set-ups. How-To Develop a Systematic – Predictable Process. Part 6 a) “Freedom Traders” Series. Hopefully this series will assist you in building a rules based trading process.

As I mentioned at the outset, I will next post a series of articles to explain the fine details of each trade set-up I use. The videos will also detail many other indicators I use. I will also be explaining more in future about how our algorithmic model trading indicators are used.

Remember to check back to this specific post and part a because the list of indicators and the overview of each will grow with time.

As mentioned in Part A I also highly recommend taking in our regular trading webinars and most specifically the mid day trade and chart set-up reviews.

Repetition breads success. Repetition provides laser focused trading skills that only comes from practice, practice, practice.

Our team time in the mid day chart and trade set-ups is a training ground for success through repetition and fresh trade ideas.

Apply to Nearest Recruiting Station, Part 5: New Trading Challenge 10k to 1M, Part 6 b: Trading Set-ups. Video Explains Predictable Winning Process (companion to part 6 a).

Introduction:

This article is an overview list of the various trade set-ups I use with different types of trading I am involved in.

I will endeavor in this series of posts to first explain my trading system and then through subsequent posts I will break-out the details of each trade set-up I use.

Please note, this is part 6 of the Freedom Trader’s series and because this topic will be extensive I am going to number them 6 a, b, c and so on and other sub topics in the series will continue onward with part 7. I suspect that I will be updating part 6 and its sub posts for many years to come.

The purpose of this part of the series is to assist trader’s in developing their own predictable trading systems (a rules based trading process).

A large part of a successful trading plan is having a predictable trading system that you can rely on. Finding at least one trading system that will work the majority of the time, that is easy to use, fits your personality, is predictable and easily reproducible is key.

Perfect a trading system that works the majority of time, is easy to use, fits your personality, is predictable & easily reproducible.

My Personal Objectives.

I believe the bar to my success is directly tied to what percentage of the traders in our trading group are successful on a regular and consistent basis. Not whether I can dazzle with home-run trades like some genie that comes out of the bottle daily.

But rather how well the traders in our group can reproduce methods / components of my trading systems for their own predictable gains and how well I can assist our traders in their trading success no matter where the system is found and then duplicated.

The bar (test) of my success is directly attached to what percentage of the traders in our group are successful on a regular and consistent basis.

How Good Can a Trading System Be?

Before I explain how good a trading system can be, I will tell you there are developments in the trading industry (specifically toward algorithmic trading) that very few in retail trading and even at the professional level understand. I won’t get in to detail here, but I can tell you frankly that if you peel back the layers of the onion you will find scientific evidence of trading models that are winning near 100%.

With that considered,  I discuss a system of trading in this series that provides trade set-ups with 80% to near 100% win rate (scientifically, mathematically back-tested and proven).

BUT, a near 100% win rate requires perfect trade execution in accordance with trade set-up rules AND I do not execute trades perfectly, so my win rate floats between 65% – 90%.

I would be best described as a trader that is “base hitting to wealth”. I use my base hitting skills and add the compounding affect to my portfolio (more on compound trading discipline here) and this is my way of building my portfolio.

I do not execute trades perfectly, so my win rate floats between 65% – 90%.

Once you have a winning system, then your success rate is completely determined by emotional intelligence and discipline.

Three Categories of Trading I Can Offer Set-ups For.

I utilize three categories of trading; day trading, swing trading and algorithmic model trading – each has its own disciplines (set-ups). I was for years also an investor – I do not invest anymore because the other methods of trade listed provide me higher returns.

I utilize three categories of trading; day trading, swing trading and algorithmic model trading – each has its own disciplines.

I swing trade and day trade simply because day trading or swing trading can experience periods of lull (where returns can be limited). And if I require at minimum 100% ROI per year, I cannot have periods of lull. I do not invest anymore because the best returns I was able to garner (on average) was 10% – 14% per year (all holdings considered).

I am now also involved intensely in algorithmic model trading. What is that? I am not trading with “bots” to be clear. I am trading algorthmic chart set-ups that are human executed (with the goal of concluding our development with a digital dashboard for traders – or a sophisticated “intelligent assistant” for traders).

Algorithmic charts (in our instance) are charts that use historical data to provide the highest probability of trade success for the trader.

Read about our algorithmic development process and Why Our Algorithms are Different than Most for more information.

A List of Trade Set-Ups (Systematic Processes) I Use for Day Trading, Swing Trading and Algorithmic Chart Trading.

Day Trading Set-Ups I Use:

Day trading is by far the most difficult of the three categories of trading. It requires a skill-set and emotional discipline and intelligence that goes far beyond swing trading and even more so with algorithmic chart trading.

I use a number of day trading set-ups, here are a few:

  • Intra-day Halts. By far the most profitable set-up for my style are intra-day halts. Intra-day halts provide my style exceptional opportunity for return.
  • Extended Hours News. Pre-market and after-market news are second most profitable, but because I don’t have a lot of extra time (specifically to trade pre-market or post market) my returns lately in these methods are limited. But when I am trading full-time and not running a number of businesses these are highly profitable for me.
  • Market Open Momentum Trades. Gap and go style trades along with others at market open provide significant opportunity for profit. I will caution new trades to stay away from these for a significant amount of time when they first start trading. Too many GURU’s in my opinion sell this wayyyy to much to new traders.
  • Technical Chart Set-Ups. Chart set-ups are my favorite, least stressful, highest probability of success way to day-trade. Not my highest ROI category but definitely my favorite. I bring over swing trade set-ups from my swing trading discipline (that are based on weekly and daily charts) to my day trading discipline – I just trade them on tighter time frames (hourly, 30 min, 15 min, 5 min, 3 min).
  • And of course there are many others I day trade such as break-outs on the daily or 52 week chart, bottom plays, wash-outs with snap-backs and many other types.

Swing Trading Set-Ups I Use:

Swing trading (or power swing trading in my instances) is less stressful than day trading and it has a more predictable return on investment than day trading. All things equal, if you execute both with skill swing trading cannot match the return on investment of day trading – but day trading with consistency and not blowing up your account is radically difficult to master.

Swing trading comes down to technical and/ or fundamental set-ups. I am a technical trader so I lean on technical set-ups (on the weekly or daily charts) and use fundamental research to support my trade set up bias only.

Below are a few technical and fundamental indicators I use for swing trading:

  • MACD – I rely on the MACD heavily as one of my primary indicators in swing trading entries and exits.
  • Moving averages – Second to MACD I utilize moving average disciplines for my trade entries and exits.
  • Fibonacci – I rely heavily on Fibonacci to confirm my bias (I do however use Fibs in a way most are unfamiliar with because of our algorthm chart modeling component).
  • Squeeze Momentum Indicator – This is a custom indicator available on Trading View. I use it to confirm my trades.
  • Trade Volume – Volume is an important indicator in my trade considerations.
  • Stochastic RSI – I use the Stoch RSI to try and refine any given entry or exit.
  • Earnings Dates – I rarely hold a trade through earnings. I recently held Google and Amazon and a few others with success, but that is rare for me.
  • Insider Buying and Selling – I almost always have an eye to insider trades before taking a trade.
  • Short Positions – Short positioning is important.
  • Fundamental Research – Instead of doing my own research I have specific experts I defer to prior to trading (it saves time and they are the experts. They consider me a technical expert so they bounce their trade considerations off me first also – it works back and forth well).

Algorithmic Chart Model Trading Set-Ups I Use:

Algorithmic chart model trading is by far the most predictable, least stressful trading method I use – and if the models are good it can be the most profitable (in our case the models have been exceptional).

We have six models we use (Oil, Gold, Silver, SPY, VIX and the USD) – our Oil algorithmic charting is the first and farthest along in development.

Our oil algorithm is returning well over 300% consistently and has indications of being able to achieve 1200% (the profit and loss statements will be released to the world within 30 days). That far outperforms the 40% – 120% my swing trading profit/loss provides and the 80% – 240% my day trading profit/loss provides.per annum. And even better, there is zero fundamental research required and the chart set-ups are provided to the trader.

The question then is why don’t you simply trade algorithm charts? Well… we have a vision for democratizing the algorithmic trading discipline. Not the easiest path I could have chosen (democratizing our models).

If you research the topic (under the everyday thin later of research), you will find that our models are competing with the world’s best – and the world’s best are not available to the retail public. I have yet to find a high performance algorithm platform that is available to the retail public.

If the public decided or decides they don’t want our models, I will simply go dark and contract our models to dark pools – that option is presented daily. But that is not our mission. Heck I could just trade them in my own dark pool.

Below are a few of the chart set-ups I use in algorithmic chart trading:

  • Primary Trading Range Support and Resistance. Our algorithm charting provides clear support and resistance for the wide / broad trading range (wide quadrant range) prior to trade even getting to the date. In other words, it is future forward charting (unlike conventional charting which is charting what has already occurred).
  • Channel Support and Resistance. As with all other algorithmic chart models, our algorithms provide trading channels to our traders in advance of trade creating a channel. I trade support and resistance.
  • Time Price Cycle. Time price cycles are critical in our models and trading. Huge opportunities exist as time / price cycle come to conclusion.
  • Algorithm Targets. Our algorithms have specific targets for time and price future forward. This is something I consider but don’t trade heavily against.
  • Conventional support and resistance in channels and more. I refer to conventional charting simply to be aware of when conventional charting is in agreement with our algorithm models – it increases my bias toward a trade.
  • And of course in our work their are many other set-ups at work.

Closing.

That concludes my overview with reference to the various trade set-ups I use with the various types of trading I am involved in.

As I mentioned at the outset, I will next post a series of articles to explain the fine details of each trade set-up I use and noted above.

I also highly recommend taking in our regular trading webinars and most specifically the mid day trade and chart set-up reviews.

Repetition breads success. Repetition provides laser focused trading skills that only comes from practice, practice, practice.

Our team time in the mid day chart and trade set-ups is a training ground for success through repetition and fresh trade ideas.

Good Morning Swing Traders and Welcome to the Compound Trading Weekly Swing Trading Report (3 of 3) for Week of May 22, 2017. $AMBA, $FSLR, $AAOI, $GOOGL, $AMZN, $CALA, $LITE, $JUNO, $HIIQ, $EOG, $COTY, $GREK …………

Email us at info@compoundtrading.com anytime with any questions about any of the swing trades listed below. Or, if we get bogged down private message Curtis in trade room or direct message him on Twitter. Market hours are tough but we endeavor to get back to everyone after market each day.

Notices:

Important Service Upgrade Notice: To receive alerts be sure we have your email and you have followed our Twitter alert service at @SwingAlerts_CT. I know many have expressed interest in the email only, but the Twitter option is available going forward for those that prefer that. Please bear with us as we integrate and orientate ourselves to this new function in our daily routines.

This report is part 3 of 3 reports weekly. It is not complete! Will complete it this evening.

We will categorize our coverage soon because we are following more than we expected when we first started the service..

When managing your trades with the weekly reports keep in mind that you will have to invest an hour or two a week to check the indicators mentioned for buy and sell triggers. I was asked recently why we do not usually (although we do sometimes) include precise entry and exit points. The reason is simple, they don’t work – those services have terrible results.

Swing trading success, even with a service, does require “some” maintenance on the part of the user, although the new live alert service will take much of that burden off the user as we know many of our users have busy lives. It is the indicators lining up that signal a trade long entry or an exit. In our case rely heavily on MACD on daily or weekly (or Stoch RSI and Moving averages) but indicators we are basing our trade entry and exits on are listed with each trade so any user that does even moderate trade management will know when the indicator(s) have turn with or against the trade.

Intra-week you can always DM myself on Twitter or email with specific questions regarding trades you are considering for assistance. But it is critical that you attend to the maintenance of your signals at least once a week if not twice and set stops and preferably alarms so that intra-week you can enter or exit. If nothing else you can always book some coaching time and I’ll assist also (although we are at a point of waiting list for the coaching, at minimum you can get on list or for immediate help as I said please DM or email).

IF WE DON’T GET BACK TO YOU RIGHT AWAY it is usually because we are pressured with deadlines or are trading.

A note toward the alerts! Please be aware the sell triggers will regularly not be alerted live because they are triggered as stops. And on days like Wednesday so much happens so quickly there is no way to alert the closing of trades. Every member should have stops on their own trades anyway so it isn’t the closing of a trade that is critically alerted anyway, it is the netry – the stop is your own comfort level of risk.

Also, as live charts are made available below, click on link and open viewer. Then to use chart yourself click on share button at bottom right (near thumbs up) and then click “make it mine”.

Newer updates below in red for ease.

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.

$OAK OakTree Capital Group Swing Trading Alert for Members has done well with 25% gains in 2017

Oaktree Capital Group, LLC (OAK) today announced that it will report fourth quarter and full year 2016 financial results prior to the opening of the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday, February 7, 2017.

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.

$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.

May 11 – Trading 1.36 still holding from 1.50 2000 shares. MACD looks like it may turn up here and it is holding 200 MA.

April 26 – Trading 1.53 Holding.

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.

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:

(1) Pre-Market Gainers Watch-List :$AERI 36%, $NAKD 33% $GSOL 17% $GES $BBY $MARA $SHLD $WSM $PSTG $HMNY $GME $BCRX $PVH $INFO $MNGA $GWPH $DWT $WUBA  I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

(2) Pre-market Decliners Watch-List :  $UVXY $UWT $LABD $NTAP $SIG $BOBE $CMRE $UCO   I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

(3) Other Watch-List:

(4) Regular Algo Charting Watch-List: Gold $GC_F $GLD, Miners $GDX ($NUGT, $DUST, $JDST, $JNUG), Silver $SLV $SI_F ($USLV, $DSLV), Crude Oil FX: $USOIL $WTI ($UWTI, $DWTI, $USO, $UCO, $CL_F, $UWT, $DWT), Natural Gas $NG_F ($UGAZ, $DGAZ), S & P 500 $SPY $ES_F ($SPXL, $SPXS), US Dollar Index $DXY ($UUP), Volatility $VIX ($TVIX, $UVXY, $XIV)

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).
