Compound Trading is a trading group active in day trading, swing trading and algorithmic model charting (black box).

Time stamped entries (in permanent archive) copied to this blog are direct live log chat from chat trade room as they occurred (random chat not applicable is deleted from transcript below but raw video footage is as it occurred – uncut). Chat trade room is recorded daily for trade archive (embedded below and available on our YouTube channel).

In addition to chat, this trade-room has live voice broadcast (that covers in detail what indicators we are looking for in and out off each trade. Typically at market open and for chart review during lunch hour at minimum) and has live chart screen sharing right from our monitors. At times guest traders and associate traders will screen share charting and/or voice broadcast.

Premarket Session: 

Premarket momo.

Don’t forget we’re doing premarket chart set-up reviews for members! Get in there and get ready for the day!

$GNC Premarket up 20% on earnings.


In play today in chat room and on markets: $IDXG , $GNC $DWT, $DUST, $USOIL, $WTIC, $GDX

Got a decent momentum play first thing in the morning on $IDXG for about a 600.00 win and then later played it again only to have an intra-day 8-K offering slam it. So I was red on day by about 1200.00. One of my bigger losses on year so far. I got so used to winning I forgot what it was like to take a loss. Now, on my accounts very small relative but still sucks. A good reminder to always set stops, even on smaller entries. But this does highlight the need to keep your risk management and sizing in check.

Curt M: Long 3.56 1000 shares $IDXG
Curt M: Stop 3.60
Curt M: Add 4.07 1000
Curt M: Stop 3.88
Curt M: Out 4.13 2000

Still holding miscellaneous small bags that constitute less than 5% of portfolio (which is typical for me) and holding my $DWT (at 1/5 size) and $DUST at 2/5 size.

The opening video today with the $IDXG momentum trade was an awesome training / learn how-to trade stocks type video on technical set-ups and indicators on gap and go momentum stocks for new and even some more advanced traders (I had a few message me about it and I was surprised it was valuable for them too).

Wow that was awesome market open! $IDXG – boom time again for members. Caught on vid too. Anyway off mic til noon chart setup review. Peace.

Had one of my worst wash-outs YTD today in $IDXG – really small position but it caught me without a stop. Ugh. See rules then trade.

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. Also, please note, sometimes pieces of the transcript are missing (also something we are working on). But the video is raw and complete.

Sammy T: $XGTI tape bullish guys

Curt M: Going to watch for confirmation or break down – if it breaks down I’ll come back in later likely
Curt M: Off mic until it goes (if it does)
Spiegel: Of course Sartaj! I don’t believe in people just jumping into a room and shouting “Give me the picks” so they can just treat things like a chimp pushing buttons. There has to be some understanding and learning involved.
Curt M: Will watch it – holding – may hit it hard when Stoch RSI at bottom pending price aaction
Sammy T: When Stoch RSI turns up I’ll be in full throttle myself fwiw
Spiegel: So it’s turned up. I got in. Anyone else get in or add there?
Sammy T: Me, len , market maven for sure lol
Spiegel: of course now that I’m in its crossed back down.
Spiegel: there we go!
Sammy T: yepp
Sammy T: it may berak HOD real early here
Sammy T: Stoch RSI is near top though so there is a chance it will continue to consolidate though
MarketMaven: Everyone doesn’t want to miss the afternoon move thats why its so bullish early IMO

Spiegel: and now its halted which is never a good thing when it’s been going way down
MarketMaven: It’s repair
MarketMaven: ya Curt’s got it right thats support – if it doesn’t hold that off halt then theres a problem lol
MarketMaven: Still above my cost avg too so I’m good
Spiegel: Apparently they did a $2.20 convertible note. So it’s going to get killed when it reopens. What a terrible first trade I’m trapped in.
MarketMaven: Checking
Flash G: Seems odd intra day
Spiegel: its open
Flash G: Confirmed. The nes isn’t good. But the traders may trade it up.
MarketMaven: Perspective is your cost avg Spiegel – never take your learning trades at slow time of day lol and get a stop on your trades young man! in future.
MarketMaven: They’re shorting the pops now
MarketMaven: has to hold 3
lenny: 40 MM shares wow
Curt M: I can’t get a confirm on the $IDXG news

Curt M: Confirmed 2.20 Swnior Convertible Notes
Curt M: Have the 9-K
Curt M: 3,547,775.00 2.20 Dated March 23
Curt M: 8-K sorry not 9
Curt M: Closing of Agreement April 18, 2017
Curt M: It’s a small offering though. but still.
Curt M: Matures June 23 2018 for 125% of face value.
Curt M: Iinteresting FORM 8-K. Should bounce but don’t count on it.
Curt M: If it loses 2.95 I’ll cut for a loss. Dirt bags intra day. Wow.
MarketMaven: Never seen that before.
Flash G: I have but rare.
Curt M: I’ve never seen this scenario.
Spiegel: What are the odds it would happen my very first trade here? Nobodies fault. Couldn’t be predicted or even expected. And yes I should have had a stop in (even if Curt didn’t).
Curt M: Similar I’ve seen but the FORM 9-K makes it original
MarketMaven: Ya low of day is my cut point to…. 2.94.
MarketMaven: But its holding up.
Spiegel: Sadly I wasn’t in on the big rise earlier. Was just observing. So this hurts.
lenny: Who the hell does a mid day offering?
rom: cup and handle pattern on the 1 minute?
lenny: Anyway, I’ll likely cut 2.94 or add at break of current resistance for a quick trade.
Curt M: On mic in 3 min for mid day review >>>>>>>>>>>>
Curt M: On mic 12:08 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Leanne: Spiegel, I’m new too, you are not alone here.

Spiegel: And next time, set STOPS, STOPS, STOPS!
Leanne: Spiegel, this is an awesome group with Curtis as the leader and I have learned a lot. Highly recommend watching all Curtis’ youtube vids. We’ll do this together.
Spiegel: Great!
Spiegel: I notice all those rules are from the book Market Wizards. Interviews with top traders.
Spiegel: froze all of a sudden. Just me?
Sartaj: For a second, it’s back for me
Spiegel: me too
Sartaj: Our lab has been eating more bandwidth than usual lately
Curt M: $IDXG stopped 2.93 for a loss 200 shares
Spiegel: IDXG in at 4.15. Stopped at 3.05. $1100 loss. Glad to get the worst luck of the year out of the way at the beginning.
Sartaj: Did we mention our office has been busy? Curt will be back in a second
rom: sb
rom: chart
Spiegel: If USDYEN falls as you expect won’t that make gold fall and hurt your DUST position? Or am I wrong about your thoughts on USDJPY
Leanne: Thanks Curtis, love the lessons
Leanne: I hear ya! wish I was focussed on trading more. in time,
rom: you are the best!
rom: thank you so much
