My Stock Trading Plan for Monday Dec 20, 2016 in Chat room. $UWT, $CNAT, $ACAD, $TNXP, $USOIL, $WTI, $GOLD, $GLD, $GDX, $USD/JPY, $SPY, $SILVER, $SLV, $SI_F, $VIX, $UVXY $TVIX $NG_F… more.
Welcome to the morning Wall Street trading day session!
If you are not reviewing the post market trade reports along with this please do so. We assume our trading room subscribers do review it everyday and as such there will be information often in that report that is applicable and not in this premarket report. You will find the post market reports on our blog daily before this one is published.
REPORTING: Another quickie guys and gals! SO SORRY but this is quickest one yet – WE ARE RUNNING AROUND CLOCK RESETTING ALL ALGOS for the year end market inflection. So ya – that’s the excuse (true one lol). So much data ugh.
$CBMX, $JUNO, $UWT (deep dive)
As mentioned above; all algos (Oil, SPY, Gold, Silver, Dollar, VIX) have hit their targets now so we are running calculation targets for all six algos for all time charting time-frames and expect these reports to start rolling out VERY SOON – EPIC had HUGE NEWS last night so we got a tad distracted running his math but we’re on it. WE SEE INFLECTION HERE – it may last a while – a pause – but it is either here right now or VERY VERY close.

BlackBerry shares rally in premarket after profit surprise http://on.mktw.net/2hmtwxe
PX, DRI, BBRY, GIS, GM, FB, AAPL & more
Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:
Praxair — After weeks of talks, Praxair and rival industrial gas maker Linde have signed a non-binding term sheet for a merger of equals. Linde shareholders would get about a share and a half for each share they now hold, while Praxair holders would get one share.
Darden Restaurants — The parent of Olive Garden and other chains matched estimates with profit of 64 cents per share, while revenue was also in line with forecasts. Darden did post better-than-expected comparable-restaurant sales.
BlackBerry — The formerly dominant smartphone company — now largely a software provider — reported adjusted quarterly profit of 2 cents per share, compared to estimates of a 1 cent per share loss. Revenue was below Street forecasts, but BlackBerry did raise its full-year outlook.
General Mills — The foodmaker missed estimates by one cent a share, with adjusted quarterly profit of 85 cents per share. Revenue missed the mark, as well, on weaker sales of brands like Yoplait yogurt and Progresso soup.
General Motors — The automaker will temporarily shut down five plants in January for one to three weeks, as well as laying off nearly 1,300 workers at a Detroit assembly plant beginning in March. GM is trying to adjust to a slowdown in auto sales following seven years of growth.
Fiat Chrysler — U.S. officials are investigating about one million Fiat Chrysler pickup trucks and SUVs following reports of rollaway crashes that occurred after the vehicles were parked. NHTSA said it had reports of 25 related crashes and nine injuries allegedly related to the issue.
Facebook — European Union antitrust regulators are charging Facebook with providing misleading information about its takeover of WhatsApp. The objection involves Facebook’s sharing of WhatsApp user data.
Biogen — Biogen named Executive Vice President Michel Vounatsos as its next chief executive officer, effective January 6. He’ll replace George Scangos, who had led the drugmaker since 2010 and had previously announced he would step down as soon as a successor was found.
Apple — Apple has discussed setting up manufacturing facilities in India with the government, according to The Wall Street Journal. Making its products locally would allow Apple to open its own stores in India.
Philip Morris, Altria — These and other tobacco producers are on watch today after the California Public Employees’ Retirement System voted to broaden its ban on tobacco investments. That move went against a staff recommendation that the 16-year old ban be removed.
Destination Maternity — Destination Maternity agreed to be bought by French child care clothing and products retailer Orchestra Prémaman in a stock swap deal worth $7.05 per share. Shareholders in the maternity apparel retailer will receive a little more than half of an Orchestra Prémaman share for each share they now hold.
Ericsson — Ericsson will reportedly cut about a quarter of its workforce in Italy, according to a Bloomberg report. That comes after the telecom company lost the contract to manage the country’s largest wireless network.
Deutsche Bank — Deutsche Bank remains on our watch list amid reports that a settlement with the U.S. Justice Department will be announced this week, and that the penalty for the bank in a mortgage backed securities case will be far less than the $14 billion first proposed by U.S. officials.
Bank of America — The bank sold its U.K. credit card business MBNA to Lloyds Banking Group for $2.35 billion.
Square — Instinet began coverage on the mobile payments company with a “buy” rating, noting the growth of the overall market and Square’s consistent gain in market share.
Salesforce.com — Drexel Hamilton initiated coverage on the company with a “buy” rating, noting that Salesforce continues to be a leader in customer relations management while expanding its cloud software offerings.
Alcoa — The aluminum producer was upgraded to “outperform” from “neutral” at Maquarie, citing expectations of improved demand and pricing.
If you are new to our trading service you should review recent blog posts and at minimum of 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. And you will notice quickly that the algos have been undeniably accurate on many time-frames (intra-day 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). A quick hour of review at most will bring you up to date.
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 (at times), 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 ans 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.

S & P 500: $SPY $ES_F ($SPXL, $SPXS)
As I wrote last week:
I wrote about resistance the algo alerted at 277.80. This is still in play FYI. However, the Fed will determine now naturally whether we trend up or down from where we are. My bias is up until new year BUT I WOULD BE READY because money could get caught offside. Who knows?
As pre previous and our algorithm call before election…. My bias is still to new highs but I am looking at a pull-back Christmas / Early 2017.
As above in my intro and previous, the chart ain’t broke till its broke. When its broke we’ll let you know.
My Trading Plan: Right now I am trading $XIV instead of $SPXL or $SPXS. I do this because we are in a trend of crushed volatility. Now, when that changes and volatility starts to rise again (even if $SPY is rising at the same time) then I’ll flip over to trading $SPXL and $SPXS instead of $XIV.
Volatility: $VIX ($TVIX, $UVXY, $XIV)
As I wrote this week:
Looking for possible record lows before Christmas.
As above, I am thinking opportunity comes between Christmas and Trump, and by the way, when $VIX spikes the easiest play is short short short. FYI.
CNN Fear and Greed Index: http://money.cnn.com/data/fear-and-greed/
My Trading Plan for Volatility: I will likely follow that trend with $TVIX $UVXY $XIV buys at range pivots / pending price action, volume and other geo events. SHORT $VIX SPIKES!
Currencies and Other Global Markets: $DXY US Dollar Index ($UUP US Dollar Bull, $UDN British Pound, $USD/JPY, $FXY Japanese Yen Trust, $CNY China, $TZA, $SMK / $EWW Mexico Capped ETF)
USDJPY is getting close to symmetry on the chart from the last run up about two years ago – charting on deck in coming reports!!!
BE VERY CAREFUL LISTING TO THE $USD/JPY bears – they have been feeding misery to followers for many weeks – the chart is not broke – price is currently at support and there could easily be another leg up – nobody knows but the trend is your friend!
THIS IS STILL SUPER BULLISH!!!
My Trading Plan for Currencies / Global Markets: Waiting, waiting, waiting. $USDJPY CHART IS NOT BROKEN! IT IS A BULL UNTIL IT IS NOT…
Gold: $GLD ($UGLD, $DGLD). Miners: $GDX ($NUGT, $DUST, $JDST, $JNUG)
Per recent posts:
Rosie the Gold Algo target call HIT!
My Trading Plan for Gold: Short term there could be a pretty good pop around the Fed, but I don’t expect it would last. It could pop to the top of the algo quadrant but I don’t think it would run past – NOT YET ANYWAY. So who know’s I may play a short term scenario – Fed / market reaction dependent.
I am waiting for the trend reversal. We are very close to the price target at the bottom of that quadrant at 1133.00 ish. The initial wide frame target Rosie the algo nailed but there has been a wait and see for a reversal because of one more possible leg down. Getting very close IMO.
I haven’t started to take trades yet because I am waiting for “price – trigger – trade” set-ups. I will start chewing around the edges of stocks like $NUGT and $GLD likely. The idea is to get on the right side of the trade and trend.
WE SHOULD BE ALMOST THERE! GET READY! LIKELY BETWEEN CHRISTMAS AND TRUMP POWER TRANSFER! CHARTS COMING!
Other equities I like for Gold Trade: $AUMN (penny stock). When the trend reversal confirms I will post all the Gold equity picks here.
Silver $SI_F: $SLV ($USLV, $DSLV)
Yesterday Silver tanked real hard! Good thing we’ve been sitting on our hands awaiting inflection point here.
Same as Gold – we’re waiting for a decision from market so we can get algo targets.
My Plan for Trading Silver: same
Same as Gold, I’m waiting for the “price – trigger – trade” set-ups… I am going to start chewing around the edges of stocks when set-up confirms like $USLV and $SLV attempting to get on right side of trend trade.
Other equities I like for Silver trade: $AUMN (penny stock). Same here, when trend reversal occurs I will post equity picks here.
Crude Oil FX : $USOIL $WTI ($UWTI, $DWTI, $GUSH, $ERX, $DRIP, $ERY, $USO, $UCO, $SCO, $UWT, $DWT, $CL_F)
Please review EPIC’s twitter feed from last evening – trading at top of range and hitting all kinds of algo targets overnight.
Last week Tuesday algo target at 4:30 hit and Wednesday 10:30 AM both targets hit to the cent and second and Friday Algo target was a miss.
Trading Plan: I am in here on three entries – 10000 shares deep $UWT.
Other Equities I like for Oil or Energy Trade: Tape / Chart – $ETE, $RIG. High Short Interest – $CRC, $EPE, $WLL, $RES, $JONE, $AREX, $REN, $CLR, $HP, $ATW, $SGY. Fundamentals: $EOG, Pipelines – $XLE: $HEP, $SXE, $KMI, $DPM, $TGS, $ENB, $EEP, $PTRC, $HGT
Natural Gas $NG_F $NATGAS ($UGAZ, $DGAZ):
Per last week:
Hit resistance as I thought and alerted.
Natural Gas hit heavy resistance, came off, now at a Fibonacci support. $NG_F $UGAZ $DGAZ
ON WATCH!!! This could get a considerable pop in to late Wednesday and even as far as in to late Monday next week is possible!!!
Natural gas lost that Fib support yesterday so now I am watching lower supports. I still think there is a possibility for a pop just after Fed speak!
ON CLOSE WATCH!
Now that a number of blog posts are being unlocked, it wouldn’t be a bad idea for traders to review them (especially new traders).
If you are trading relying on our charting or algorithms as trade indicators you should read this recent article,
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 (start with trending stocks and then look at indicators intra for simple set-ups – study scan study scan study scan).
