Welcome to the morning Wall Street trading day session at Compound Trading!
Notes in red text below are new comments entered specifically today.
Member newsletters for algos, swing trades and post market reports will not be sent this morning (I got wacked with a winter fly bug and Sartaj is deep in developer land) so we’ve booked off time this evening to update them all for distribution prior to Thursday market open.
Member notice: Algo & swing trade newsletters will not be distributed this morning but will be back on regular rotation for Thurs premarket.

Current Holds / Trading Plan:
All small to mid size holds in this order according to sizing – $UWT, $BSTG, $ONTX, $VRX, $ASM, $SSH, $LGCY, $TRCH, $ESEA, $CBMX, $DUST (looking for a way out on $DUST – was expecting one final significant spike in USDJPY before drop – didn’t get it so hoping for a pull back in miners soon – if not I’ll have to take the loss). $CBMX is a hold till late spring if necessary (you would have to do your own DD on the company and make your own determination).
I entered $RNVA AM the other day small position and exited yesterday. I haven’t alerted $RNVA and $BSTG trades because I expect to be in and out of them and a few other micros lots over the next while… also have $BLPH, $OWCP, $TENX, $ACST and others on this micro watchlist.
As noted before I may exit $VRX and $UWT.
I was asked by a member last night whether I alert my swing trades in the room or on SMS and Email from our swing trade subscription side and the answer is no, I keep them separate. The swing trading service isn’t a live alert service.
Market Outlook / Trading Plan:
My outlook is very similar to yesterday. It seems Crude Oil $WTI has pushed its trade range right up near resistance to parallel $Gold, $Silver, and the $DXY US Dollar – they are all at decisions. Interesting scenario. $VIX is still dead and $SPY has another leg forming. The markets seem pensive but bullish at the same time. Again, interesting IMO.
Many of our regulars in the room were killing momos yesterday… which by the way is interesting how these can sneak up on you… I reviewed a number of them and the follow through was definitely better in these on Wednesday – there were a number of them. When I seen some of our members in $EYEG right out of the gate at market open I thought oh no… but it worked out for them – in conversations I had with members through the day and after market it seems the group did really well. I missed the momos because I was expecting the follow through to be light – but I was wrong on that.
I am really interested in where the bottom is for natural gas, so I am watching $UGAZ close. I think Mathew tagged 2.54 as a possible bounce area in the room yesterday and this morning it did tag that area and has bounced a bit. Also watching the resistance in oil as you know to possibly exit the $UWT swing soon. Also really curious to see what Gold and Silver and the Dollar do here with the Trump trade follow through.
$FNMA is my shoulda from yesterday, I was all over it when it came off hard and was going to take an entry on the snap back and its up 23% in premarket trading at 3.32.
$ONCS is up 32% trading at 1.85 premarket.

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 (@), $VIX (@), $SPY (@), $GLD (@), $SLV (@), $DXY (@DXYUSD_Index). . Our lead trader Twitter feed is here @curtmelonopoly, lead developer @hundalSHS, and newest trader @quadzilla_jr.
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.

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).
