Overview Perspective & Review of Chat Room, Algo Calls, Trades and Alerts:
$GALE I nailed with morning momentum with an add – wish the entries were larger – then I gave a lot of that back to the market with a botched $UWT trade. $UWT entry was fine – my exit was poor at pit close in the down I held – a no no trading oil related unless you are trading with a conviction to hold in the uptrend (as oil is trading now). But I was concerned with the uptrend because we were close to resistance and a previous high and my plan was a tight trade but I didn’t execute a tight departure. So that was a mistake. You can always re-enter. Cut quick.
Members in our room did well with $KATE and a few other plays. I was on top of $KATE just preoccupied so didn’t take a trade. Mathew was on top of $GDX miners, bonds, $TLT, and various other plays. Fairly active room considering market. Great team.

$DUST, $CBMX, $JUNO
I need to exit $DUST and entered it and held because I was convinced USD/JPY would at minimum do a major spike up to end the rally – but not so lucky. $CBMX and $JUNO are holds in to spring if necessary – that was the plan anyway.
We are looking to volatility, bonds, metals and possibly bio at this point short / mid term – but the market will let us know.
The market has a tonne of inflection points now, Silver Gold and Miner’s woke up some today so things should get interesting soon with our algos that you can find here:

12:11 pm Mathew Waterfall : Not much getting me too excited out here today. After the $DRAM pop nothing has been looking too constructive
12:15 pm Curtis M : slow
12:24 pm Mathew Waterfall : Liking bonds here actually. Consolidating along a fib support. Rounded bottom possible especially with market weakness

12:52 pm Mathew Waterfall : I was just thinking that MarketMM
12:52 pm MarketMaven M : yup
12:52 pm Mathew Waterfall : I’m probably sitting on my hands for the rest of thr week, maybe some downside plays but the market feels like it wants down from here
12:52 pm Mathew Waterfall : I’m content to let it figure our a direction and not forcing anything
12:53 pm Mathew Waterfall : Still holding some swings of course
12:54 pm Curtis M : I need to find a way out of $DUST lol might have to bite – have a few swings and if oil gets up over res I’m hammering down if not gonna cut around pit close or sooner
12:56 pm Mathew Waterfall : Yepp. Gotts say I’m feeling the downside move a bit more over the past week so gold might see some upword action. Coupled with the JPY coming off and it could get moving in a hurry
12:57 pm Michael P : everybody in maket confused now i think
12:58 pm Curtis M : Oil gonna pop or drop guys
12:59 pm Curtis M : 70 / 30 on my side:)
01:00 pm Curtis M : whoa $KATE surprise
01:00 pm Curtis M : Instit $ in there likely
01:03 pm Curtis M : Crude decision time soon
01:10 pm Curtis M : This could be it – loading
01:19 pm Curtis M : need the machines back ugh
01:19 pm Curtis M : here we go for another try
01:22 pm Mathew Waterfall : $TLT and the bonds making it happen here. Let’s do it
01:23 pm Curtis M : Ground zero here today
01:24 pm Curtis M : Not a time for beginners
01:26 pm Mathew Waterfall : uh yea you can say that again lol. Next few months aren’t going to be the easy street of most of 16
01:28 pm Sammy T : Scaling in 3000 $UWTI as back test confirms

01:48 pm Darni T : $NVDA decent short
01:51 pm Curtis M : Mathew – anything decent out there?
01:51 pm Curtis M : Keep your $UWT on a short leash folks
01:52 pm Mathew Waterfall : Not much moving on my end really. Sacnning for small pharma moves like yesterday and no dice after the opening period
01:52 pm Mathew Waterfall : Looking at longer term charts currently which is what landed me on the $TLT train of thought
01:52 pm Curtis M : You read my mind – was thinking pharma for EOD
01:52 pm Mathew Waterfall : Option data also light today. Not many sweeps coming through as to be expected in the end of the year
01:53 pm Mathew Waterfall : I like pharma into next year. About the only sector I really like right now
01:54 pm Mathew Waterfall : Looking for a pop in $OPXA and $AMPE. Both solid off the lows looking for a $CNAT type move in both
01:57 pm Mathew Waterfall : $FH looks decent. Nice expanding colume but at best a grinder higher
01:58 pm Curtis M : While slow I may as well mention thanks for the DMs on the assistance in the room – we’ll reach out early January – we’ve limited number of people till next week when guys are in room helping Mathew and I and media starts Fri so new year new peeps and yup we’ll reach out – thx!
02:02 pm Curtis M : Good call on $GDX Mathew – you’ve been all over that – could be a bg move
02:03 pm Mathew Waterfall : Thanks still watching and have it in a similar range. Breakout should be vicious but not going to rush into it
02:20 pm Curtis M : Careful around pit close here oil related longs
02:25 pm Curtis M : holding – but close
02:27 pm Curtis M : acton not the best hahahahaha jeez
02:27 pm Curtis M : watch out could get bad
02:32 pm Curtis M : terrible but Iheld
02:33 pm Curtis M : If price loses that white line (quadrant) Im out for loss
02:34 pm Mathew Waterfall : Stopped on $BTW. 10 cent loser on that swing attempt. Chop chop day out there
02:34 pm Mathew Waterfall : $BTX that is. Thinking about 2 tickers at once
02:42 pm Curtis M : Wellll uggh anyway so I got scaled in for a total of 1800 $UWT and will hold 2/3 overnight if it holds here – only reason my tolerance high is the upward channel we’re in
02:49 pm Mathew Waterfall : $OPXA trying here. Thought $HK might go but it’s just sat there sense running so not touching that play
02:50 pm Curtis M : $OPXA some otheres on social saying same thing (good traders lol)
02:51 pm Mathew Waterfall : You’ve found my alternate accounts it looks like lol
02:51 pm Mathew Waterfall : I haven’t seen much so that’s comforting
02:56 pm Curtis M : Sorry went on a Twitter rant
02:56 pm Carol B : ya reading it bursting
02:56 pm Curtis M : Im a terrible loser
02:57 pm Mathew Waterfall : hahaha this is a good game for people like us who hate to lose
02:58 pm Mathew Waterfall : Will only make you work harder
02:58 pm Curtis M : Just hate it – grew up in that era where we didn’t get trophies for losing haha
03:01 pm Mathew Waterfall : Missed the boat on $ICPT dang
03:02 pm Mathew Waterfall : Going crazy
03:03 pm Curtis M : wtf
03:07 pm Mathew Waterfall : $DRAM remaining super strong here as well. Surprising based off of the way it has acted I was looking for a pullback
03:08 pm Curtis M : back in 5
03:12 pm Curtis M : charts are messed will have to fix later
03:13 pm Darni T : that msdi is a rocket
03:14 pm Mathew Waterfall : IWM inside and up on the 30 but weak so far. Market looks tired and wants to go down to me
03:16 pm OILK K : $KATE wow HOD
03:18 pm Carol B : $IOTS nice chart guys
03:20 pm Mathew Waterfall : Just looking at $IOTS. I’m interested over 2.2 swing high potentially
03:20 pm Mathew Waterfall : $DRAM type play possible
03:20 pm Darni T : Could go
03:21 pm Darni T : I’m watching $REN if you can believe it for long possible

03:26 pm Darni T : Just window shopping
03:27 pm Mathew Waterfall : I want to think we are going higher, but I have 0 confidence in that
03:27 pm Carol B : Wisdom
03:29 pm Mathew Waterfall : At best in a week like this we see a grind higher. Worse we can see a lot of downward momentum if sellers get after it in absense of volume
03:29 pm Mathew Waterfall : Staircase up, elevator down effect
03:31 pm Mathew Waterfall : For $SPY levels I have it riding a trendline down. Fibs at 223.6 and 220.69. Trendline would get us to first target Friday
03:32 pm Curtis M : Out $UWT loss fark – 1800 shares total – didn’t get fills I wanted for 1 + 3K
03:33 pm Mathew Waterfall : $AFCO looks nice for a breakout here
03:34 pm Dani M : $AFCO I was watching also
03:35 pm Mathew Waterfall : I’m waiting to see a close and open tomorrow. Blue sky above though
03:38 pm Curtis M : Mathew – we may get the turn – could be metals mania etc for a while
03:39 pm Darni T : You guys on are on it. Darni needs to keep window shopping.
03:40 pm Darni T : I didnt enter anything yet – you may have convinced the pro Darni trader now.
03:40 pm Mathew Waterfall : I was just looking at NUGT options lol
03:40 pm Darni T : Looks bad I can admit it CAROL
03:40 pm Carol B : Looks like a turn.
03:41 pm Mathew Waterfall : My $TLT play is working well. I’m going to watch the BOJ overnight antics. If we can break that chart I’ll start adding in metals and miners
03:41 pm Carol B : Darni – you will just 4x enter what Curt and Mathew do anyway – I got you figured out.
03:42 pm Carol B : Look at $SPY

03:50 pm Curtis M : Me – I am just axcted about a possible turn – trends are where we make the money.
03:51 pm Mathew Waterfall : Some kind of direction would be nice after last couple of weeks. Chop city sucks
03:51 pm Curtis M : Been tough for sure – I though it was just me haha
