Compound Trading is trading group involved with day trading, swing  trading and algorithmic model chart trading.

Time stamped entries (in permanent archive) copied to this blog are direct live log chat from chat trade room as they occurred (random chat from myself not applicable or other misc chat deleted). Chat trade room is also video recorded daily for trade archive.

In addition to chat, this trade-room has live voice broadcast (that covers in detail what indicators I am looking for in and out off each trade) and has live chart screen sharing right from my monitor to the room with all indicators I am looking at. At times guest traders and associate  traders will screen share charting and/or voice broadcast.

PreMarket Trading Plan Mon Apr 10 $CYTX, $GERN, $SPXS – $SPY, $DUST – $GLD, $GDX, $DWT – $USOIL, $WTIC #daytrading #chatroom

$CYTX Premarket up 32% on news.

$STRP premarket up 150% on AT&T buy-out for 95.63 share

$STRP Premarket news

In play today in chat room and on markets:

Last week I was range bound to 1500.00 a day (really choppy) until Thursday got better around +2500.00 then Friday was flat and even took a small cut and Monday took a small razor cut at open and took a long position in $PLUG at EOD, Was looking at a long in $UUP (surrounding Yellen report) but didn’t, and I’m looking closely at an Oil and Gold / Miner’s short possibility. Swing trades are doing well of course because they are more consistently controlled (wider time frames with simple charting entries and exits do that).

Momentum plays on the day –


In Play: $STRP, $GSAT, $TXMD, $GERN, $SWFT, $CYTX, $RCII, $AKRX High Uncertainty: $XCRA, $T, $DISH

Carter Worth is lit tonight and makes a compelling case for $TSLA

Trading Lessons, How-to and Educational:

If you can’t back a trade w/ tech set-up or at min fundamentals… then you deserve to take a loss. Like me w my one paper cut at open ha.

1/ $STUDY trading plan ex. that was sent in $CRME. Here’s what I think (and remember there’s all kinds of methods – mine are one of many).

Stocks, ETN’s, ETF’s I am holding:

I am holding (in order of sizing – all moderately small size to micro sizing) – $DVN, $DUST, $PLUG, $ONTX, $XOM, $NE, $ASM, $SSH, $LGCY, $TRCH, $ESEA, $MGTI (this is the daytrading portfolio and does not represent swing trading service portfolio): Looking at moving out of all these small positions over the next month or so.

Next Week | preview

We have been warning folks (as a result of algorithm anomalies picked up) for sometime about significant resistance not far above in Oil and SPY so it will be interesting to see if we get through it. Here’s just some of the posts. The oil resistance cluster is much larger than the one identified on $SPY.

Algorithmic Chart Model Trading / News:

Midday Algorithm and Swing Reviews: $USOIL $GLD $GOLD $GDX $DXY $AKS $DVN $UUP: http://youtu.be/JfnwvcGbPXU?a #daytrading #swingtrading

I have come to respect algorithmic chart modeling like a deep sea fishing vessel respects a weather forecast. #trading #charts #signals

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

Swing Trading Notes / News:

Simple swing charting that keeps me level when looking at the markets (see swing trade simple charting link above). Simple charting I find grounds you to simple trades which in turn keeps you profitable in toppy or sideways markets.

Live Trading Chat Room Video Raw Footage and Transcript:

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


Compound Trading Stock Chat-room Transcript:

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

Note: We are testing a new trading room. This particular room does not list a time stamp with each chat entry – we are working on a fix.
