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.

Market Day, Chat Room Trades and Personal Trades:

Today I traded $TWLO wash-out snap-back for a win and closed my overnight $UWT $USOIL $WTI related trade right before #EIA report for a win.

Closed $UWT right near early high this morning. @EPICtheAlgo got me out right on time live in room. Video out later.

Learning How-to Trade Stocks, Chart Set-Ups, Lessons and Educational:

Here’s quick email interaction from today re: $TWLO:


Hi guys

I hate to bother you with stuff but in today’s live action early in the am Curt pointed out that twlo under 25 had another dollar and when the trade was made he mentioned that he will close above 26. Pretty impressive. I just wanted to know what was the method used there to determine a) that twlo was going to go up and not down again like the night before and how did targets get determined?

Thanks in advance.



Hey no problem message me on Twitter DM anytime to if you like or tag me in a tweet – whatever’s easier for you

Ummm… the answer is long on that… it’s the indicators the MA’s and how they were set up… the mid day review videos on our You Tube will kind of explain.

I’ll try and do a post specific to your questions soon if time allows:)

$SPX in only 7-point range Tuesday, ahead of FOMC. I’d say that low Average True Range (ATR) is marking a top, but it has not worked lately.

Surprisingly enough, YoY growth in margin debt has historically been a positive sign for the S&P

Markets Looking Forward:

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.

Curt M_1: On mic at 9:05 for Premarket Review

Sartaj: haven’t been kicked, either
sbrasel: thoughts on twlo?
sbrasel: below ipo and heavy short interest
sbrasel: not sure
sbrasel: they blamed it on uber
sfkrystal: $PIRS down to 3.23 ask
Market Maven: $TWLO Ilike that idea thanks!
quarryrock: took a bath on my GRPN casino play

Market Maven: A lot of short opps at open.
sfkrystal: like that $PIRS held 3.08
Spiegel: PIRS turning up nicely
sfkrystal: in from 3.20 $PIRS
quarryrock: STC $QQQ .52 +27%
Lenny: $PIRS snap back could get huge
Spiegel: good one krystal. Was looking to get in and I looked away at something else and it took off without me

Sartaj: Quite a few people in here who haven’t
sfkrystal: whoah
Sartaj: SEE?!
sfkrystal: that’s… insane
Sartaj: Managed markets
Spiegel: So was EPIC calling for it to drop there?
Sartaj: Intersect the span of the quadrant, with a high probability of dropping through its lower supports
Sartaj: But if you want to be specific, an algorithm calls one output; in this case, a price/time. So we knew it would hit 47.83 at 10:30 am exactly
Sammy T: EPIC
Sammy T: good name
Spiegel: You weren’t holding any positions though when that oil report came out though, right?
sfkrystal: brilliant
Spiegel: I’ve decided I’m definitely joining the EPIC bundle on June 1 for 6 months.
quarryrock: $X woodshedded
Lenny: super cool stuff
Sartaj: Not much more to say. Now you all know where the frustration comes from when everyone’s bullish (TV, fintwit, etc.), and EPIC is calling these turns literally weeks in advance. The latest top, for example – called six weeks in advance
Sartaj: And then, when the turn was happening, people are still sending DM’s “oh hard to say where oil will go…”
quarryrock: STC $CRM Ps +.11 26% hitting singles
Sartaj: I’ll get a highlight video up later today
Spiegel: I wouldn’t let it bother me. Youre making big money and you have the satisfaction of always being right
quarryrock: all the large QQQ names choppy
Curt M_1: $TWLO having hard time with 200 MA on the 3
Curt M_1: I literally never lose in oil plays – when room is open I’ll trade intra day too like mad – that chart you see is a 30 min – but those are available on all time frames for tight trade or wide trade
Spiegel: When am I supposed to sleep?
Curt M_1: I don’t now you know why
sfkrystal: lol
Spiegel: there must be a dead hour or two between different sessions
Curt M_1: I haven’t slept since EPIC was invented
Spiegel: Oh wow!
Curt M_1: hardly lo
Sartaj: Coding phase will alleviate some of that pressure, but you get even less sleep during software development
Sartaj: so.
Spiegel: Guess I’ll just have to develop a coke habit combined with Monster energy drinks in order to stay awake and trade EPIC
Curt M_1: and we have the algos now for other things like Gold etc so we’re puped about the future
Curt M_1: coke would help ya
quarryrock: BTO $146 $AAPL Ps .76
Spiegel: LOL – great. And I’ll be able to afford it too!
Spiegel: kidding of course
Sartaj: pays for itself
Curt M_1: Long $TWLO 24.98 800 shares
quarryrock: STC $APPL P’s quick scalp .11 $500
Spiegel: AMLH finally broke a penny.
ny75: snap 20 cross 200 on 3 min coming up
quarryrock: AAPL may go find that $145 again
Curt M_1: Going for coffee – will be back for lunch hour review. Will watch $TWLO while gone and dump it if it loses much more than VWAP
ny75: what is the target for twlo?
Curt M_1: I don’t have one – just a daytrade snipe
ny75: ok thanks
quarryrock: BTO $SLW $19.50 Cs .27 5/5
quarryrock: miners are waking up
Hedgehog Trader: $EXK beasting (silver miner)
Sartaj: Midday Chart Review starts at 12:05
Curt M_1: On mic>>>>>>>>>>>
ny75: $shop
Spiegel: JNUG
mat: Old fave ASM trying to base off of a sloppy looking double bottom at 1.4/1.41. Im in a few looking for another run
Spiegel: MAybe AMLH
Hedgehog Trader: Mat- look at $EXK
Hedgehog Trader: it’s one the best performers today for great fundies
mat: Will do. TAHO was a crazy earnings beat. I think they are backloading a lot of their costs to the rest of the year or something
mat: EXK looks good. PPP puting in a similar move after nice earnings as well. PPP had a large strike going at it’s major mine so the rest of the year should rock
Hedgehog Trader: and Mat- $NAK
Hedgehog Trader: been strong during downdraft
mat: NAK is on my DNT list lol
ny75: shop
Hedgehog Trader: ha 🙂
Hedgehog Trader: $SINO always strong
Hedgehog Trader: i’m looking for shippers to rally hard into mid-May
Hedgehog Trader: my signals indicate a very large magnitude move in next 15 days for $EXK
Hedgehog Trader: makes sens if you believe miners will break out
Hedgehog Trader: of their slump and run
mat: Silver is oversold hard and GDX has been acting better. Put in its low last week while silver/gold continue to be weak so that tells em miners want to rally if the base metals cooperate
mat: gdxj/gld ratio is also in the gutter
Hedgehog Trader: gold usually bottoms after miners
mat: Yepp, usually miners front run the metals. I’m looking for this week and next weeks earnings to be the catalyst to get things moving north
Hedgehog Trader: Mat i get we’re likely to see them run to at least May 16th
sfkrystal: $PIRS might be setting up
will: pulm?
Hedgehog Trader: Opa!
ny75: question: are you in snap in your swing side port?
Hedgehog Trader: that’s okay Curt, can’t get em all. besides, you can make bank on LACDF
Hedgehog Trader: tremendous fundies behind lithium right now
Spiegel: I’m just worried about them defaulting.
Hedgehog Trader: some of these had long consolidations
Hedgehog Trader: like $ESEA and investors aren’t always sure when to jump in
Hedgehog Trader: LACDF also had $440k of insider buying since Apr 11
Spiegel: TWLO making at bit of a comeback
Spiegel: When market gets soft, are you set to do bearish 3X ETFs?
Curt M_1: yes sir
Curt M_1: and it may not get soft
Spiegel: Great!
Sartaj: brb
Spiegel: I’ve got TWLO options expiring Friday
will: cbli pulling back today
Spiegel: My TWLO options up 53% if I sell at the ask
Curt M_1: $VWR halt
Spiegel: TWLO continues to impress
Spiegel: Only $1 from target
Spiegel: Even Wikipedia has all you need to know
Spiegel: Sorry, that ws for someone else I was chatting with
Spiegel: TWLO 25.99!
Spiegel: $even the even $26 didn’t slow it down too much
Sartaj: It’s actually going, but the MACD is about to peak
Spiegel: Selling my options
Sartaj: Nice
Spiegel: out
Sartaj: Just in time
Sartaj: Hello, Bernard
sfkrystal: $VWR should go to at least 40% on the day
Curt M_1: You’ll like it Spiegel
Spiegel: In at .65. Endured some pain and almost sold. Sold for 1.25 for 92%
Spiegel: Peaked at 1.50 ask
Curt M_1: nice
sfkrystal: which was that spiegel?
Spiegel: TWLO call options
Spiegel: May 5, $25s
sfkrystal: ah, ok options ic
Spiegel: very risky since so short term
Spiegel: If TWLO stayed under $25 by Friday I’s lose everything. So I didn’t bet big.
sfkrystal: $PIRS has trouble with 3.72
Spiegel: Getting out of TWLO was great timing. If I had to sell now bid on the option is only .75 so just 15% profit. cents profit
sfkrystal: back in $PIRS from 3.72
Market Maven: $PIRS could break out here for sure
Spiegel: Agree Maven. Right at the breakout level now
Spiegel: 3rd times a charm
Curt M_1: $HIL halt
Spiegel: I want back in to TWLO options but my history has always been when I go back for seconds I lose. Should just be happy with what I’ve made
Flash G: yes
Spiegel: Lets just mark the stock here 25.85 and see how it wouldve worked out for me.
Spiegel: I’m not buying
Spiegel: watch, this will be the time it wouldve realy worked out
Spiegel: $26.75 here we come!
Spiegel: JNUG almost $17!
Sammy T: Miners are frisky with FOMC for sure
Curt M_1: Fed unchanged
Spiegel: as expected
Flash G: $GOOGL has legs under it.
Hedgehog Trader: $ASM chart now looking good
Spiegel: maybe not for long if gold keeps going down. I can’t believe rates unchanged is making it fall. It should be making it rise.
Flash G: Fairly quiet post FOMC – should pick up after oil closes at 2:30
Curt M_1: $TWLO out 25.59
Spiegel: So glad I didn’t rebuy the options. Old Spiegel would have
Curt M_1: Should have bailed when resistance was tested
Curt M_1: haha
Curt M_1: 24.98 buy 800 shares out 25.59 was originally going to close at 26.30 ish ugh
Sammy T: Long $PIRS 3.90 for a test on break-out
Flash G: Russell didn’t hear what it wanted that’s for sure
Sammy T: Would be nice to get a power hour
Hedgehog Trader: instead of a powder hour
Hedgehog Trader: or a chowder hour
Market Maven: yup
Spiegel: FNBC looking good
Hedgehog Trader: btw for miners have a look at $GPL, Mat
Hedgehog Trader: https://twitter.com/HedgehogTrader/status/859846780288200704

Sammy T: Have a good one all! See you tomorrow.
Bernard: Hi Sartaj
Bernard: I haven’t been watching much today. lol
Market Maven: You too!
Sartaj: Just as well. In any case, looks like there was some interesting stuff going on with oil today. Did you go short?
Bernard: Unfortunately, I didn’t.
quarryrock: interesting behavior on AAPL all day
Sartaj: Nice to hear from you, in any case. We usually don’t hear too much from the newsletter people haha
Sartaj: Nice to hear from you, in any case. We usually don’t hear too much from the newsletter people haha
Lenny: Night all
Bernard: haha. yeah. I’m waiting for oil to bottom out and ride it back up
Curt M_1: Night golks
Bernard: If I’m reading chart correctly, the bottom should be 47.30 unless it breaks support, right?
Sartaj: Can you send that again over email, please? We are about to shut down the room
Bernard: sure
Sartaj: Thanks
