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.



New lead trader blogpostWhen You Learn It – You Are Free (Part 1 of Freedom Traders). My Stock Trading Story.

Big Changes: Even though we post my trades and trading room transcript and video daily (which has been a massive time investment) as of now we are posting intra-day small videos to our Twitter feed and YouTube – every trade as they happen. Each will have details of setup and reasoning for each trade. We will still post complete trading room session to Youtube also.

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

Premarket watch-list for me was all about: 

$PLUG Premarket up 63%. Plug Power.

$INNL Premarket is up 43% #tradingplan #stocks #daytrading

In play today in chat room and on markets:

$PLUG, $INNL, $BLDP, $USOIL, $WTI, Oil Plays on watch. Premarket watchlist.

$PLUG, $CALI, $INNL were the momentum plays on the day.

$PLUG I traded later in the day for a 1 cent loss on 10000 shares and $INNL I had on the swing trading side of our platform and on the daytrading side. The swing side we sold during premarket and I held 2000 shares on daytrading side hoping for a premarket pop and didn’t get it. Both I sold for a profit because I took the trade the afternoon before long for the swing and the news came out that night. Reminded me of the $VHC play last year (same thing happened) but in that instance I went in with 60% of my portfolio. Huge win then. $CALI I didn’t trade.

Stocks, ETN’s, ETF’s I am holding:

I am holding (in order of sizing – all moderately small size to micro sizing) –   $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.

The Markets Looking Forward:

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:

Epic the Oil Algo was at it again with a crazy price target hit to the penny and exact time at Wednesday #EIA report time at 10:30 AM. That call was made Sunday for that exact time and price Wednesday and what made it more interesting was how oil literally fell from the sky and landed right in the middle of the target. We caught it on video.

#EIA Price hit target exact time & price called Tues 10:30. Crude algo. $USOIL $WTIC $CL_F $USO $UWT $DWT #OOTT

Swing Trading Notes / News:

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

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

2 Part video (Part 1 embed below go to our Youtube channel for Part 2)

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.

Curtis M: We had a good run on those swing Flash from late Dec to now.
Curtis M: I think I did 45% or so and you likely more.

optionsavvy: I may have to take the exit on rest of SPY this was a bit of a lucky trade
Sartaj: Seems like a theme today
MarketMaven: Your daytrading is better than that though Curt
Curtis M: That was a disciplined trade imo
Curtis M: $SPY at res and oil at res kinda obvious looking back but at the time…. things always clear in reverse
optionsavvy: agree but DOW divergence from NASD is what tipped me off to trade. IWM was strong when I took the SPY otherwise that would have been my pick
optionsavvy: old futures guy beat into me that when the NASD diverges strong and DOW isnt playing along be very careful
Curtis M: makes sense
Curtis M: okay i have to bail on $PLUG this stoch rsi turn up its 3:29
Curtis M: time not on my side
