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.



If you missed it, here is the Previous Day Stock Trading Results – Tuesday Mar 28 (we had an internet outage Wednesday Mar 29 so there is no report):

The Weekly Simple Swing Trade Charting (public edition) is out (high rate of annual return trading simple charts – it works!) :

Summary Review of Markets, Chat Room, Algorithm Charting, Trades and Alerts:

Premarket was all about:


In play today in chat room and on markets:


I didn’t take a trade in $XBIO but I did speak  to members that did – and they did well actually. I wasn’t convinced the fundamentals or the chart had merit so I was nervous with it. I did take a small trade in $PRAN at momentum open but small.

My large play is with $UWT, without explaining all the details early in the week I entered a small position $UWT at support and scaled in to the trade (it is a 3 x leveraged ETN related to oil $USOIL $WTIC) and by yesterday I was scaling out 70%. Anyway on 5000 shares scaled in (and trade isn’t done yet) I am up around 12,000.00 this week on this trade and will likely land around 15,000 if I can scale out of last 30% where I think it will find final resistance. So it’s one of my better trades in recent time.

In to the close leaderboard $XBIO 34% $PRAN 32% $CVGI 16% $PFMT 16% LPTH 16% $EXTR 14% $BVXV 14% $HTGM 14% $VHC 12% $XRM #daytrading #stocks

A chart shot of intra day action with $XBIO – didn’t take a trade but looked at the company and charting closely. It ran hard in to close.

$XBIO, Trading, Results, Chart

$XBIO up 19% on the day trading 4.50 Daily 200 MA on deck MACD cross-over Stoch RSI up Vol up But Dismal Chart History #daytrading

Scaled in rest of full long position $UWT today and trimmed 50% EOD. Add again on pullbacks or b/o. $USOIL $WTI $CL_F


Stocks, ETN’s, ETF’s I am holding:

I am holding (in order of sizing – all moderately small size to micro sizing) – $UWT, $DUST, $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. I am now 95% cash in daytrading account.

Live Trading Chat Room Transcript: (on YouTube Live):

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 now.

HedgehogTrader: $SQM is a large lithium player, shares are consolidating strongly near highs
HedgehogTrader: has that look like it could breakaway
Curtis M: $FX has that 50 MA overhead and the 100 50 cross the wrong way – that will have to be overcome and price under 50 MA
Curtis M: But MACD turned up and OA just turned green
Curtis M: Watching oil close here now over resistance

Curtis M: See how oil breaks out at apex most often
lenny: Thats where my money is made Curt
OILK: ya i agree that is a benefit i forget to recognize – i remember last sept ish when you were working with the quds on different time frames – things were different before the quads
OILK: way more predictable intra now and yes you can take advantage of the quad apex for about 30% better roi over time is my guess – on daytrades
OILK: my question…. how long and how much work did it take to figure out the 30 minute was the chart to use most ahaha obviously that is the main chart machines are using considering the way price respects the 30 min quadrants
OILK: i mean look at those lines
Curtis M: 64582 hours 🙂 or something like that

Flash G: Market more resilient than I expected today.
Flash G: $SQM has legs its seems – not my specialty however.
