Welcome to the Compound Trading Weekly Swing Trading Stocks for the Week of May 29, 2017.  $MXIM, $LIT, $ATHM, $NFLX, $TAN, $BA, $BWA, $BABA, $WYNN … and more.

Email us at info@compoundtrading.com anytime with any questions about any of the swing trades listed below. Or, if we get bogged down private message Curtis in trade room or direct message him on Twitter. Market hours are tough but we endeavor to get back to everyone after market each day.

Notices:

Important Service Upgrade Notice: To receive alerts be sure we have your email and you have followed our Twitter alert service at @SwingAlerts_CT. I know many have expressed interest in the email only, but the Twitter option is available going forward for those that prefer that. Please bear with us for a few days as we integrate and orientate ourselves to this new function in our daily routines.

This report is 2 of 3 reports weekly. 

You can expect the third report within in 48 hours of this report.

We will categorize our coverage soon because we are following more than we expected when we first started the service..

When managing your trades with the weekly reports keep in mind that you will have to invest an hour or two a week to check the indicators mentioned for buy and sell triggers. I was asked recently why we do not usually (although we do sometimes) include precise entry and exit points. The reason is simple, they don’t work – those services have terrible results.

Swing trading success, even with a service, does require “some” maintenance on the part of the user, although the new live alert service will take much of that burden off the user as we know many of our users have busy lives. It is the indicators lining up that signal a trade long entry or an exit. In our case rely heavily on MACD on daily or weekly (or Stoch RSI and Moving averages) but indicators we are basing our trade entry and exits on are listed with each trade so any user that does even moderate trade management will know when the indicator(s) have turn with or against the trade.

Intra-week you can always DM myself on Twitter or email with specific questions regarding trades you are considering for assistance. But it is critical that you attend to the maintenance of your signals at least once a week if not twice and set stops and preferably alarms so that intra-week you can enter or exit. If nothing else you can always book some coaching time and I’ll assist also (although we are at a point of waiting list for the coaching, at minimum you can get on list or for immediate help as I said please DM or email).

IF WE DON’T GET BACK TO YOU RIGHT AWAY it is usually because we are pressured with deadlines or are trading.

March 27 – We’re long 104.64 500 shares March 22 at test of 20 MA. Stop is at our entry and we are looking for a fresh break-out. However, the market sentiment is not great right now so we are unsure. There is an upside pivot at 111.38 we are watching for resistance should price continue up. Also watching MACD close.

$BABA, Swing, Trading

$BABA Swing trade

March 20 – Wait for MACD to turn up and confirm and stay long until MACD turns down. The Stoch RSI seems to be frontrunning the MACD fyi. $BABA is one of my favorites right now and I see a long entry early in the week.

May 3 – April 25 148.40 Long 500 shares April 25 when MACD turned up per below. Trading 156.28. MACD trending up, SQZMOM trending up and Stoch RSI at top and may come off short term – so a short term turn down is possible here. Will likely re-add when STOCH RSI comes off and turns back up as long as MACD is trending up still and has room to top.

April 24 – Trading 142.87. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 143.75 – waiting for MACD to turn up.

April 10 – We closed flat 145.50. Trading 142.80. Waiting for MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM to turn green for entry long.

April 4 – March 29 we entered 145.50 500 shares when MACD turned up per watch trigger below. Stop is at flat at entry and we will re-enter if we have to. Will look at adding pending triggers – will advise.

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

April 24 – Trading 7.96. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 7.63. MACD still trending down. Waiting for it to turn up.

April 10 – Trading 8.18, Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $GSIT finally cooling off and coming back to earth. Watching that MACD very close for a turn up (after it returns to bottom hopefully).

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and closed Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

May 23 – Watching. Indicators indecisive.

May 17 – Trading 78. Sitting on 200 MA on weekly. On daily price is under 20 and 50 MA with MACD turned down. Watching.

May 9 – Trading 78.27. Closed 78.74 May 4 when MACD crossed down from 78.01 long. We still like this stock so we are watching close for indicators to turn back up.

May 3 – Trading 79.54. Holding long while MACD trends up and price above entry and 20 MA is above 50 MA. Stoch RSI is coming off so we expect some downward pressure short term.

April 24 – Trading 79.63. Long 78.01 500 shares April 20 when MACD turned up. Watching for MACD, Stoch RSI to remain, and SQZMOM to turn green for possible add.

April 4 – $AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to line up. Need volume & power. #swingtrading $AXP Price Trigger Power Trade Risk Reward – PTPTRR #trading Over the Wall!

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

$ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

March 27 – Very close now. SQZMOM just turned green, MA’s are starting to line up but not all yet, Stoch RSI is turned down at top of range so I would like to see it at bottom when we enter and the MACD is turned up. So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

This is one of those where we are early. In other words the price isn’t above all MA’s yet. So one could take the trade as long as MACD is up and preferably long entry timed when 20 MA is about to breach 50 MA and price is above. But watch out for the 200 MA above.

$TAN Watching MACD turned up price over 20 MA SQZMOM green. Need price over 50 MA with 20 MA breach 50 MA.

April 24 – Trading 17.04. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 17.39. This one is getting close. Stoch RSI has to come off and then turn up. SQZMOM is almost green and MACD cross up. When those line up we will take a long position.

April 10 – Trading 17.20, Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch.  Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – NA

Mar 27 – $TAN chart is now “broken” and price is on its way to the lower pivot around 16.44. All indicators are pointing to down. It closed Friday at 17.29. So we will keenly watch it as it nears the lower pivot and see if the indicators line up for a long trade. If it lost lower pivot  we may even consider a short side entry pending indicators.

Mar 20 – Nice reversal play if it turns out. In addition to below watch the 200 MA as resistance if you go long.

$TAN Reversal Play. Daily MACD needs to turn up, Stoch RSI is up, SQZMOM needs to turn up. 100 MA about to cross 50 MA – bullish.

$VRX Early stages of possible bottom bounce. SQMOM green, 20 MA about to breach 50 MA price still under 200 MA, MACD up

May 9 – Trading 9.77. See below.

May 3 – Trading 10.50. MACD is turned up and the SQZMOM has not confirmed green. Earnings in six days so watch for that. The MA’s are exactly like the $TAN scenario above so the same rules apply. We are not entering yet but may at any second. Again it is an early trade because you want price above the 200 MA and 20 MA to breach 20 MA that is perfect timing (with MACD trending up). But many people take these early at this point. Refer to considerations noted above with $TAN also. Same set-up.

April 24 – Trading 8.51 Watching.

April 19 – Trading 8.95. Not ready.

Apr 10 – Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – I thought I’d run a poll on my Twitter feed to help us with this one.

$VRX Premarket up 1%. MACD cross flat… is this the bottom?

$VRX, Premarket

$VRX Premarket up 1%. MACD cross flat… is this the bottom

$VRX Premarket live chart https://www.tradingview.com/chart/VRX/F7bVqHl7-VRX-Premarket-up-1-MACD-cross-flat-could-this-be-bottom/

March 27 – $VRX continues stepping down on the chart… per below, really important to wait for all the indicators to line up. So we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – This was looking like it was going to curl up last week and bounce but it failed. A great example of carefully watching a falling knife indicators before taking a long position. Use patience and when all indicators in play take a long.

$VRX Bottom Play. Daily MACD needs to turn, Stoch RSI turning up, SQZMOM needs to turn then as MA cross-overs occur it will strengthen.

$VRX Bottom Play. Daily MACD needs to turn, Stoch RSI turning up, SQZMOM needs to turn then as MA cross-overs occur it will strengthen.

$TWLO

May 31 – Trading 24.48. Watching. 

May 23 – Trading 25.00. Watching for bottom bounce to form. MACD up on daily right now.

May 17 –  Trading 24.53. Waiting on MACD turn cross up on daily before anything.

May 9 – Trading 23.50. See below. Not ready.

May 3 – Trading 23.70. Closed 33.57 1000 shares before earnings on a 29.60 buy. Never hold through earnings unless you are unusually confident (yes we did recently with $GOOGL and $AMZN but very unusual for us to do that). Anyway, watching now. Downdraft was intense from forward guidance.

April 24 – Trading 30.82. Holding 1000 shares 29.60.

April 19 – Trading 30.51. April 12 MACD turned up opened long 29.60 1000 shares.

$TWLO, Swing, Trading

$TWLO Swing Trade going well. Trading 30.51. April 12 MACD turned up opened long 29.60 tight stop.

April 10 – Trading 28.40. Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD cross and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – No change.

March 27 – Price failed when it had to poke through 100 MA and continue – it failed and is on its way (possibly) to the previous low. So here, as with $VRX we employ patience – but get ready because the long in this one will be decent. Use the indicators noted below.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

$WYNN

May 31 – Trading 126.30  Watching for MACD to turn up.

May 23 – Trading 125.11. Watching for set up.

May 17 – Trading 126.91 coming up on underside of 200 MA test on weekly. MACD on daily is about to cross up. Will wait for MACD on daily and assess.

May 9 – Stopped flat on May 5, 2017. Watching SQZMOM, Stoch RSI, MACD, volume indicators now for a turn.

May 3 – Trading 125.55. Long 122.56 April 25 when MACD turned up (per below) and watching for continuation in MACD and price. Will exit if MACD turns down or price hits our entry. We may even add. It looks good.

April 24 – Trading 114.89. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 115.95. MACD trending down. Waiting for bottom and turn up. It has a ways to go.

April 10 – Closed 500 shares Friday 117.20. Trading 116.50. Watching MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM for reset at bottom and turn for re-entry.

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided.

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one.

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

$XME

May 30 – Trading 29.25. Watching.

May 23 – Trading 29.23. Watching.

May 17 – Trading 29.32 MACD on weekly is down and price on Daily is under MA’s. Waiting on 20 MA to cross up and price to be above.

May 9 – Trading 28.73. See below.

May 3 – Trading 29.71. Watching for MACD to turn up. Currently pinched.

April 24 – Trading 29.79. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 29.48. Close flat 30.59 on the 12th. Testing 200 MA now. Watching for Stoch RSI to turn up, MACD to turn up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 10 – Trading 30.84 holding. Long at 30.59. Tight stop.

April 5 – We opened a tight long position (so stop will be tight because you can always re-enter and metals charts still have to confirm so we are a tad early here) long 30.59 500 shares will add if it confirms and will cut bait if it comes off at most 2% and re-enter. Indicators look good BUT we are early. Use caution until metals etc confirm.

$XME, Swing, Trading, Alerts

$XME Metals and Mining ETF Above 21 ema 8 ema 20 MA 200 MA MACD turned up SQZMOM turned green today

March 27 – Price action has been poor since last report, the 200 MA is just below price now so we are going to see if the indicators line up for a bounce long position.

March 20 – MACD is pinching and about to turn up, also waiting for price above 20 MA. This is a great looking chart and an argument could be made that a long position before everything lines up as I noted is sound. It’s a great looking chart because MACD is bottom (for clarity), so when it turns if all other indicators look good there should be room for a decent trade. Caution should be noted that now after having gone through a number of charts this evening the market is at a decision so any swing trades should be considered at length and stops should be tight IMO.

Mar 23 – Trading 1.50 Watching.

May 17 – Trading 1.56. Watching.

May 9 – Trading 1.57. Waiting on MACD, SQZMOM to turn up, price to be above 20 MA and 20 MA to breach 50 MA. It is a ways away.

May 3 – Trading 1.68. Watching.

April 24 – Trading 1.84. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 1.94. Watching. Indicator indecision.

Apr 10 – No change.

April 5 – $URRE isn’t as close to a buy as $XME above, HOWEVER, the SQZMOM did signal green today and the MACD is slightly turning up! So it is on HIGH WATCH now!

March 27 – Almost a replay from last week (the indicators), so we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – Like so many of the charts this week, there is indecision. However, if the indicators line up this has excellent upside potential. The MACD pinching at the bottom is key IMO.

$URRE Daily MACD pinching at bottom, Stoch RSI turn up, SQZMOM needs green, price needs 20 MA.

May 9 – Trading 11.14 – SQZMOM trending up but red, MACD about to cross up, volume is up all after earnings. Waiting on price to be above 20 MA and breach 50 MA. Interesting action now (moderately positive) since earnings.

April 19 – Watching.

Apr 10 – No Change. Trading 12.50.

$RIG, Chart

$RIG Sooo close. MACD up, SQZMOM about to turn GR, wedged, needs increasing volume and break-out confirmation for a long.

March 27 – It is holding its 200 MA like a trooper, but I want to see it at least be over 20 MA and other indicators to line up.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Above 200 day but needs to trade above 20 MA for long.

April 10 – No change.

April 5 – $XLE chart is very similar to $RIG and others in this space, HOWEVER, it is still under 200 MA. On watch for break of 200 MA.

March 27 – The 50 has crossed the 100 and the 20 the 200 to downside – this is very bearish in the near term. Watching. It does qualify as a short and best when MACD at top turning down and Stoch RSI at top turning down with confirmation of price action and MA’s.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Needs 200 day and to trade above 20 MA for long or it becomes a short.

$SLX, watch, chart

$SLX On watch for SQZMOM to turn green and MACD to turn up. Close.

March 27 – As with $XLE above this also qualifies as a short (pending short term indicators lining up when you take the position). Price lost the 100 MA and the indicators are negative – very bearish. Watching.

March 20 – MACD is pinching on the turn back up – waiting for it to turn up and 45.50 to hold for one day to confirm break out. Or, on downdraft I would look at a 100 MA long entry also.

$X – United States Steel Corp.

May 23 – Same

May 17 – Watching as with above.

$AKS Swing trade position long April 7 #swingtrading #stock #picks

March 27 – AKS is coming in on the 200 MA test. Watching.

No premarket newsletter or premarket review this morning, I am on a conference until right before open. See u in room at 9:25 AM for open!

Market Day, Chat Room Trades and Personal Trades:

Tuesday everyone (literally) in the room was winning – great group in there – feel like a proud dad. Anyway, it was a great day BUT we missed getting part of the transcript of that damn server issue with that trading room we are testing (the first part), but the raw trading room video is in full but still the video doesn’t tell the whole story (chat etc). But a great day.

Two clean trades today with wins – one in $CLNT and one in $UWT (details further below in post). The swing trades of course were rocking for me on that side of our platform (some listed below) and of course the algorithm trading side you can’t compete with – that is going very well also. Great day and a great year.

Getting so many messages can’t keep up with all the winning today. Congrats to ya ‘all.

$CLNT Got a good chunk of the move today. Will be on raw trade room footage on You Tube later. #daytrading

And Tesla and many other issues were big winners for our members today. $TSLA

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.

ALSO PLEASE NOTE the first part of the day transcript is missing but the video is there and we didn’t miss much of the first part of day – sorry!

Curt M_1: bbr
Spiegel: mine just went cold with all the excitement
Curt M_1: brb lol
quarryrock: $YELP spike!
quarryrock: come on $DIS $112 and im putting this to bed!!!
Flash F: watching $YELP very close (I’m in it)
Spiegel: Looks good. I just joined you flash
quarryrock: nice!
Spiegel: Option premium very hihgh with that one. I might do a covered call with it.
Spiegel: After it’s risen
Flash F: $SHOP beast
Flash F: $VIX might break forever soon
quarryrock: my trade on DIS is to try to play with house money into the report. will only leave partial position open for it.
Sandra: $WUBA highs continue
Spiegel: I just noticed YELP announces earnings after the close today
Spiegel: they crushed them last time
Spiegel: 333% positive earnings surprise
quarryrock: wow they are pushing yelp down. might be a nice bounce later
Spiegel: stopped out
Spiegel: that was quick. Minor loss though on 100 shares
Spiegel: $20
Spiegel: I wouldnt have bought if I knew earnings were tonight
quarryrock: YELP should find $35.50 later as options mkt pricing 13% move off that strike – lets see
Flash F: Shorting $TSLA – I don’t get it. Why people try.
Spiegel: im holding unless it gives me a reason otherwise
Spiegel: although I’ll admit is has gone too far, too fast. Can’t hold this type of gain all day
Flash F: I even understand why people would short it short time frame but there’s people that think its going to crash
Flash F: $TSLA isn’t going to crash and burn
lenny: ya i agree – it will have pull backs but curt’s right about the fact that the peasants (us) get a piece in the castle so to speak – a piece of the future bla bla i agree with all that
Curt M_1: mmmm coffffee
Curt M_1: now I’m ready
Spiegel: Curtis, views on TSLA at this juncture
Spiegel: please and thank you
quarryrock: Added $35 Cs $YELP
quarryrock: sold more $DIS 1.53

quarryrock: SLW catching a bid
quarryrock: big green candle in $YELP

Spiegel: CLNT may have pulled back enough to go back in
quarryrock: did anybody see that nintendo news last night as it relates to NVDA?
Curt M_1: Even tho I’m tempted because I’m in need of some juice here…. I’m going to wait for time of day… this afternoon should have bullish action
Curt M_1: should
Curt M_1: undless it gets going of course
Market Maven: there is a bullish momo in market it might run earlier

Flash F: One of the best years I’ve had in forty of em
Flash F: Gold may never come back. VIX may die forever. The markets may just go up forever. Managed markets.
Curt M_1: $TSLA SQZMOM is rounding top but that means nothing. 100 MA about to breach 200 MA on 5 that’s super bullish.
Curt M_1: volume coming in to wow
Spiegel: still have my call
Curt M_1: crazy action
Curt M_1: Congrats all
Curt M_1: Flash you nailed it again
Curt M_1: they sold in to that spike on $NVDA really hard wow
quarryrock: lots of Bears because of AMD
quarryrock: im not convinced they miss here – could beat nicely
Spiegel: NVDA cracked but TSLA still going.
Spiegel: THAT’s the star of the day for big caps
Spiegel: how is the stochRSI still so low for it after that huge run?
Curt M_1: Its an overbough oversold type indicator – not momo
Curt M_1: when its trending down or flat and price is trending up you buy with both hands and feet
Curt M_1: especially when stoch rsi trending down and price trending up
Curt M_1: right now its crossed down and it looks like MACD is going to also and SQZMOM is
Spiegel: NVDA bouncing
Spiegel: bounced right off 200 and 100 ema
quarryrock_1: $FOSL ripping ahead of ER
Market Maven: $CLNT snap back underway
Market Maven: knocking on VWAP

quarryrock: $P in play
Tradergirl: thx kk ya, if holds here, speaks volumes
Spiegel: I’m guessing the oil market is so huge that no matter how many are in the room trading EPIC it won’t affect prices for long?
ny75: fslr and hd
Spiegel: Just bought that one! How did you know?
Tradergirl: thank you so much kk, we are on same page fwiw

Spiegel: swing list potential?
Spiegel: I’m good!
Spiegel: yeah!
Leanne: And I’m absorbing all this goodness in here, thanks everyone for letting me be a sponge
Spiegel: HIIQ
Spiegel: wasn’t going to bother you but couldn’t help it
quarryrock: retailers all moving nice
quarryrock: $KSS over $40
quarryrock: and the options will start to blast off
Curt M_1: Wow great session – some great charts there!
Curt M_1: Back in 20 mins
quarryrock: $LULU rumors
quarryrock: there goes $KSS !!!!
quarryrock: strangled $VRX here $12.50 weekly Cs with the $11.50 next week Ps
quarryrock: looking to capture the volatility potential both ways
Spiegel: Oil dumping – could be getting near buy point?
Spiegel: UWT under $154
Spiegel: under $3.80
Spiegel: Geez, under $13.80
Spiegel: thinking……thinking…..
Curt M_1: Algo charts work fine on our PCs but not on these laptops.
Curt M_1: getting too big
Curt M_1: too big for cheapie laptops
Curt M_1: it just hit the algo line support
Curt M_1: that orange line
Curt M_1: I’m going to take a long test here as long as it holds the orange line we’re good
Curt M_1: if not oh boy watch out
Spiegel: You need to catch up. Better include it! 🙂
Curt M_1: $UWT 1800 13.85 Long for a test
Spiegel: We need to see a pic of your bulldog
Leanne: OMG the deep breathing!
Spiegel: he gets his own seat?!
Curt M_1: hope so – be right back:)
Spiegel: nicely timed – good thing I alerted it
Curt M_1: Hey Spiegel!
Curt M_1: Thanks Brother!
Curt M_1: You and EPIC will get along just fine:)
Spiegel: I’m hoping to form a beautiful, commited, long term relationship with it
Market Maven: haha you’re not the only ones
lenny: EPIC is well you know…
Spiegel: EPIC
lenny: I still haven’t figured out the math and Curt’s explained it 50 times to me
lenny: yup
quarryrock: $TGT beautiful
Spiegel: Instead of UWT I bought UCO calls
Curt M_1: nice
Spiegel: terrible spread though
Spiegel: FSLR broke hihghs again
Curt M_1: Just watch that orange line close. That’s a get out fast line. You can always re enter.
Spiegel: Curtus, how much time lag is there between your clickmeeting charts and what we see?
quarryrock: $KSS ?‍♀
quarryrock: break out
Spiegel: I can’t believe that after UCO has gone up 25 cents from where I bought it they’ve only raised the bid on the calls by a nickel!
Spiegel: the calls have almost no time value in them now even though theres 3 days left
Spiegel: FSLT closing in on $36
quarryrock: Retail is going crazy!!!
Spiegel: FSLR I mean
quarryrock: sold some $P calls for $500
Spiegel: FSLR did indeed break #36
Spiegel: $36
quarryrock: $NCLH POP!
Spiegel: My first oil trade here. So once in, I guess we should worry over every little dip or hiccup in price as long as it honors the channel?
Curt M_1: correct
Curt M_1: orange line
Curt M_1: 🙂
Spiegel: above orange = hold on!
Curt M_1: going long side in downtrend harder so not the best but we’ll see
Curt M_1: ha
Curt M_1: OPEC knows the chart
Curt M_1: if oil loses that orange line then there’s only one more below (the grey one down below) and then oil tanks all over again. So then you watch for a rumor at the orange or grey line – rumor comes all the time there. Well not all the time but you know what I mean. they know the chart
Spiegel: by rumor you mean a rumor leaked to the media about something that will affect oil prices?
Curt M_1: correct
Curt M_1: when price hits magic algo lines they start the rumor mill
Curt M_1: no rumor when price hits below grey line short
Curt M_1: if rumor comes at grey line long
Curt M_1: But there’s always a yellow line about .20 cents under the grey line and that’s the zone or area of support – they hammer the stops between the grey line and yellow line and then take off again
Curt M_1: look over epics historical charts you’ll see a yellow horizontal line
Spiegel: I’ll look for that
Spiegel: AAOI yet another new hihg
Hedgehog Trader: Curt- what makest thou of $RGSE chart? (not urgent)
Hedgehog Trader: I do wonder if oil bounces back that RGSE might break above 50 dma
Curt M_1: See that orange line up above? Oil not likely to get thru there FYI to upside
Curt M_1: it may but its gonna be a challenge
quarryrock_1: $YELP certainly not inspiring confidence today
Curt M_1: $RGSE has lots of indecision but it looks like this may be bottom. High probability.
Hedgehog Trader: thanks Curt – it does look worth watching
Spiegel: solar must be hot for some reason
Hedgehog Trader: iirc it had a big share rollback and had some insider buying right after
Spiegel: let me check my Yahoo solar list
Hedgehog Trader: $SOL is one that is trying to peek above 50 dma
Hedgehog Trader: $TAN the solar etf has some room above it- up 1% today
Hedgehog Trader: $JASO at fresh highs but not huge volume
Spiegel: CSIQ + 2.14%, JASO + 3.93, SPWR + 2.75%, JKS +3.3%. Yup! Solar is hot!
Hedgehog Trader: all solar plays
Hedgehog Trader: yep
Spiegel: haven’t looked at that list in awhile
Spiegel: I was going to say SCTY down but I forgot TSLA bought them out
Hedgehog Trader: my $NAK keeps going up- probably only miner showing life right now
Spiegel: gotta be
Spiegel: that thing seems to move independent of the metal
quarryrock: Here comes the House of Mouse!
Spiegel: house of mouse?
Spiegel: DISney
Spiegel: of course
Spiegel: UWT lookin gooood
quarryrock: yup LOL!
quarryrock: come on $SLW how about a ramp into the close
Spiegel: Winner of most ridiculous spread award goes to NWMT. .02 X .065
Spiegel: that’s level 2. Level 1 is .06 X .40
quarryrock: took off the $VRX calls small loss leaving next weeks puts on
quarryrock: long $YELP $34.45 will be selling shortly
Spiegel: don’t want to hold through earnings?
quarryrock: this is a scalp
quarryrock: have calls for ER
Spiegel: ah
Spiegel: I read they had a huge 333% earnings surprise last Q
Spiegel: Although this time Zacks doesn’t think it’ll be that good
quarryrock: Yelp Options now implying a 21.5% move
quarryrock: wow im bullish
quarryrock: this is a beautiful scalp!
quarryrock: im out .55
quarryrock: plus .55
quarryrock: STC 50% of my $YELP 35 Cs for +.30 small win
Curt M_1: $HNRG some decent range between 7,97 and 8.08 resistance
Curt M_1: sorry 7.67
Spiegel: There goes my sleep tonight. I’ll be watching this OIL chart constantly
Curt M_1: haha
Curt M_1: I’ll likely take profits b4 close
Curt M_1: i’m in a trading challenge lol
Spiegel: but if not in a trading challenge you would…….
Spiegel: HOLD?!?!
quarryrock: wouldnt shock me if they ramp VRX into the close to kill any shorts playing for a fade
Curt M_1: I don’t hold often no
Spiegel: I should sell and take this first oil trade win. Good psychologically going forward
Curt M_1: if i was short at res in a downtrend like now yes
Curt M_1: but this is opposite
Curt M_1: Selling now $UWT 14.24 average closing
quarryrock: not going to play NVDA tonite
lenny: Curt never lost on oil plpays I dont think
Curt M_1: small cuts yes
lenny: ya but lose nope
Curt M_1: End of day 7 of two week 20k double account trading challenge +6250.00 ?? Three days left ugh runway getting real short #tradingchallenge

Notices:

Good morning!

We are going to categorize our coverage soon because we are following more than we expected when we first started the service.

Also, our swing trading alert service will launch soon for real-time alerts – the start date has been moved to May 15, 2017.

Below we have initiated coverage of $ATHM and $BWA – both flashing buy signals and we’re waiting for near immediate confirmation for long positions.

When managing your trades with the weekly reports keep in mind that you will have to invest an hour or two a week to check the indicators mentioned for buy and sell triggers. I was asked recently why we do not usually (although we do sometimes) include precise entry and exit points. The reason is simple, they don’t work – those services have disasterous results.

Swing trading success, even with a service, does require “some” maintenance on the part of the user, although the new live alert service will take much of that burden off the user as we know many of our users have busy lives.

It is the indicators lining up that signal a trade long entry or an exit. In our case rely heavily on MACD on daily or weekly (or Stoch RSI and Moving averages) but indicators we are basing our trade entry and exits on are listed with each trade so any user that does even moderate trade management will know when the indicator(s) have turned with or against the trade.

Intra-week you can always DM myself on Twitter or email with specific questions regarding trades you are considering for assistance. But it is critical that you attend to the maintenance of your signals at least once a week if not twice and set stops and preferably alarms so that intra-week you can enter or exit. Charting software like Trading View will even text you when an alert triggers on your chart!

If nothing else you can always book some trade coaching time and I’ll assist also (although we are at a point of waiting list for the coaching, at minimum you can get on list or for immediate help as I said please DM or email).

Also, as live charts are made available below, click on link and open viewer. Then to use chart yourself click on share button at bottom right (near thumbs up) and then click “make it mine”.

April 10 – Hit 110.45, very near our 111.40 target. Holding, trading 109.34. Long 104.64.

April 4 – Holding long 500 shares from 104.64 now trading 108.17. It is testing all time highs and we may add on a break of all time highs. If it pulls back we may cut for a small profit. First price target is 111.40 (see below)

$BABA Live chart with indicators including that SQZMOM indicator – sweeet tool! https://www.tradingview.com/chart/BABA/Lbao9BVu-BABA-Swing-Trade-going-well-Our-Swing-Trading-side-is-in-at-10/

March 27 – We’re long 104.64 500 shares March 22 at test of 20 MA. Stop is at our entry and we are looking for a fresh break-out. However, the market sentiment is not great right now so we are unsure. There is an upside pivot at 111.38 we are watching for resistance should price continue up. Also watching MACD close.

$BABA, Swing, Trading

$BABA Swing trade

March 20 – Wait for MACD to turn up and confirm and stay long until MACD turns down. The Stoch RSI seems to be frontrunning the MACD fyi. $BABA is one of my favorites right now and I see a long entry early in the week.

https://www.tradingview.com/chart/NFLX/rjcjiVBz-NFLX-Swing-trade-going-well-Long-at-148-40-trading-156-08-SQ/

May 3 – April 25 148.40 Long 500 shares April 25 when MACD turned up per below. Trading 156.28. MACD trending up, SQZMOM trending up and Stoch RSI at top and may come off short term – so a short term turn down is possible here. Will likely re-add when STOCH RSI comes off and turns back up as long as MACD is trending up still and has room to top.

April 24 – Trading 142.87. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 143.75 – waiting for MACD to turn up.

April 10 – We closed flat 145.50. Trading 142.80. Waiting for MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM to turn green for entry long.

April 4 – March 29 we entered 145.50 500 shares when MACD turned up per watch trigger below. Stop is at flat at entry and we will re-enter if we have to. Will look at adding pending triggers – will advise.

$NFLX Live chart with indicators https://www.tradingview.com/chart/NFLX/ozKJQ8t4-NFLX-March-29-we-entered-swing-trade-145-50-when-MACD-turned-t/

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

$GSIT

May 9 – Trading 7.40. See below. 

May 3 – Trading 8.03. MACD pinching. Will enter long when MACD turns up AND be sure price is above moving averages and 20 MA is in fact over 50 MA. 20 50 100 200 all in order with price above in other words. Should be soon.

April 24 – Trading 7.96. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 7.63. MACD still trending down. Waiting for it to turn up.

April 10 – Trading 8.18, Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $GSIT finally cooling off and coming back to earth. Watching that MACD very close for a turn up (after it returns to bottom hopefully).

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and closed Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

$AXP

May 9 – Trading 78.27. Closed 78.74 May 4 when MACD crossed down from 78.01 long. We still like this stock so we are watching close for indicators to turn back up.

May 3 – Trading 79.54. Holding long while MACD trends up and price above entry and 20 MA is above 50 MA. Stoch RSI is coming off so we expect some downward pressure short term.

April 24 – Trading 79.63. Long 78.01 500 shares April 20 when MACD turned up. Watching for MACD, Stoch RSI to remain, and SQZMOM to turn green for possible add.

$AXP Swing Trade Going Well. MACD turned up for long 78.01 test.

April 4 – $AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to line up. Need volume & power. #swingtrading $AXP Price Trigger Power Trade Risk Reward – PTPTRR #trading Over the Wall!

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

April 10 – Waiting on MACD and Stoch RSI to cross and turn up for long. SQZMOM is green now. Trading 19.09.

April 4 – $ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

$ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

March 27 – Very close now. SQZMOM just turned green, MA’s are starting to line up but not all yet, Stoch RSI is turned down at top of range so I would like to see it at bottom when we enter and the MACD is turned up. So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

$TAN

May 9 – Trading 17.84. Waiting for 20 MA to breach 50 MA now – CLOSE!

May 3 – Trading 17.67. $TAN Watching MACD turned up price over 20 MA SQZMOM green. Need price over 50 MA with 20 MA breach 50 MA.

$TAN Live Chart Link: https://www.tradingview.com/chart/TAN/7JpW1gSP-TAN-Watching-MACD-turned-up-price-over-20-MA-SQZMOM-green-Need/

This is one of those where we are early. In other words the price isn’t above all MA’s yet. So one could take the trade as long as MACD is up and preferably long entry timed when 20 MA is about to breach 50 MA and price is above. But watch out for the 200 MA above. 

$TAN, Chart, Swing, Trade

April 24 – Trading 17.04. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 17.39. This one is getting close. Stoch RSI has to come off and then turn up. SQZMOM is almost green and MACD cross up. When those line up we will take a long position.

April 10 – Trading 17.20, Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch.  Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – NA

Mar 27 – $TAN chart is now “broken” and price is on its way to the lower pivot around 16.44. All indicators are pointing to down. It closed Friday at 17.29. So we will keenly watch it as it nears the lower pivot and see if the indicators line up for a long trade. If it lost lower pivot  we may even consider a short side entry pending indicators.

Mar 20 – Nice reversal play if it turns out. In addition to below watch the 200 MA as resistance if you go long.

$TAN Reversal Play. Daily MACD needs to turn up, Stoch RSI is up, SQZMOM needs to turn up. 100 MA about to cross 50 MA – bullish.

$VRX

May 9 – Trading 9.77. See below.

May 3 – Trading 10.50. MACD is turned up and the SQZMOM has not confirmed green. Earnings in six days so watch for that. The MA’s are exactly like the $TAN scenario above so the same rules apply. We are not entering yet but may at any second. Again it is an early trade because you want price above the 200 MA and 20 MA to breach 20 MA that is perfect timing (with MACD trending up). But many people take these early at this point. Refer to considerations noted above with $TAN also. Same set-up.

April 24 – Trading 8.51 Watching.

April 19 – Trading 8.95. Not ready.

Apr 10 – Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

$VRX Premarket live chart https://www.tradingview.com/chart/VRX/F7bVqHl7-VRX-Premarket-up-1-MACD-cross-flat-could-this-be-bottom/

March 27 – $VRX continues stepping down on the chart… per below, really important to wait for all the indicators to line up. So we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – This was looking like it was going to curl up last week and bounce but it failed. A great example of carefully watching a falling knife indicators before taking a long position. Use patience and when all indicators in play take a long.

$VRX Bottom Play. Daily MACD needs to turn, Stoch RSI turning up, SQZMOM needs to turn then as MA cross-overs occur it will strengthen.

May 9 – Trading 23.50. See below. Not ready.

May 3 – Trading 23.70. Closed 33.57 1000 shares before earnings on a 29.60 buy. Never hold through earnings unless you are unusually confident (yes we did recently with $GOOGL and $AMZN but very unusual for us to do that). Anyway, watching now. Downdraft was intense from forward guidance.

April 24 – Trading 30.82. Holding 1000 shares 29.60.

April 19 – Trading 30.51. April 12 MACD turned up opened long 29.60 1000 shares.

April 4 – No change.

March 27 – Price failed when it had to poke through 100 MA and continue – it failed and is on its way (possibly) to the previous low. So here, as with $VRX we employ patience – but get ready because the long in this one will be decent. Use the indicators noted below.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

$WYNN

May 9 – Stopped flat on May 5, 2017. Watching SQZMOM, Stoch RSI, MACD, volume indicators now for a turn.

May 3 – Trading 125.55. Long 122.56 April 25 when MACD turned up (per below) and watching for continuation in MACD and price. Will exit if MACD turns down or price hits our entry. We may even add. It looks good.

April 24 – Trading 114.89. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 115.95. MACD trending down. Waiting for bottom and turn up. It has a ways to go.

April 10 – Closed 500 shares Friday 117.20. Trading 116.50. Watching MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM for reset at bottom and turn for re-entry.

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided.

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one.

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

April 10 – Trading 30.84 holding. Long at 30.59. Tight stop.

April 5 – We opened a tight long position (so stop will be tight because you can always re-enter and metals charts still have to confirm so we are a tad early here) long 30.59 500 shares will add if it confirms and will cut bait if it comes off at most 2% and re-enter. Indicators look good BUT we are early. Use caution until metals etc confirm.

$XME Metals and Mining ETF Above 21 ema 8 ema 20 MA 200 MA MACD turned up SQZMOM turned green today

March 27 – Price action has been poor since last report, the 200 MA is just below price now so we are going to see if the indicators line up for a bounce long position.

March 20 – MACD is pinching and about to turn up, also waiting for price above 20 MA. This is a great looking chart and an argument could be made that a long position before everything lines up as I noted is sound. It’s a great looking chart because MACD is bottom (for clarity), so when it turns if all other indicators look good there should be room for a decent trade. Caution should be noted that now after having gone through a number of charts this evening the market is at a decision so any swing trades should be considered at length and stops should be tight IMO.

March 27 – Almost a replay from last week (the indicators), so we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – Like so many of the charts this week, there is indecision. However, if the indicators line up this has excellent upside potential. The MACD pinching at the bottom is key IMO.

April 5 – $XLE chart is very similar to $RIG and others in this space, HOWEVER, it is still under 200 MA. On watch for break of 200 MA.

March 27 – The 50 has crossed the 100 and the 20 the 200 to downside – this is very bearish in the near term. Watching. It does qualify as a short and best when MACD at top turning down and Stoch RSI at top turning down with confirmation of price action and MA’s.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Needs 200 day and to trade above 20 MA for long or it becomes a short.

March 27 – As with $XLE above this also qualifies as a short (pending short term indicators lining up when you take the position). Price lost the 100 MA and the indicators are negative – very bearish. Watching.

March 20 – MACD is pinching on the turn back up – waiting for it to turn up and 45.50 to hold for one day to confirm break out. Or, on downdraft I would look at a 100 MA long entry also.

$X – United States Steel Corp.

May 9 – Trading 21.32. As below watching. Indicators are not flashing long at all.

Good morning swing traders and welcome to the Compound Trading Weekly Swing Trading stocks for the week of May 1, 2017. $LIT, $BA, $RIG, $ABX, $EXK, $BABA, $VRX, $NFLX, $WYNN, $URRE, $TAN, $TWLO, $GSIT, $AXP, $XLE, $SLX, $X, $XME, $AKS and more.

Notices:

Good morning!

This report is one of three reports we are processing weekly of stocks we cover. Highlights are with $BA, $NFLX, $AXP, $GSIT, $TAN, $VRX, $WYNN, $BABA.

You can expect the third of the three (rotated weekly) in the next 24 hours.

Also going forward (in case you missed it or are new) we will be stepping up the rotation cycle with more frequent updates going forward, we are going to categorize our coverage (very soon) because we are following more than we expected when we first started the service, and our swing trading alert service will launch soon for real-time alerts (sometime June 2017).

When managing your trades with the weekly reports keep in mind that you will have to invest an hour or two a week to check the indicators mentioned for buy and sell triggers. I was asked recently why we do not usually (although we do sometimes) include precise entry and exit points. The reason is simple, they don’t work – those services have disasterous results.

Swing trading success, even with a service, does require “some” maintenance on the part of the user. It is the indicators lining up that signal a trade long entry or an exit. In our case rely heavily on MACD on daily or weekly (or Stoch RSI and Moving averages) but indicators we are basing our trade entry and exits on are listed with each trade so any user that does even moderate trade management will know when the indicator(s) have turn with or against the trade.

Intra-week you can always DM myself on Twitter or email with specific questions regarding trades you are considering for assistance. But it is critical that you attend to the maintenance of your signals at least once a week if not twice and set stops and preferably alarms so that intra-week you can enter or exit. If nothing else you can always book some coaching time and I’ll assist also (although we are at a point of waiting list for the coaching, at minimum you can get on list or for immediate help as I said please DM or email).

Also, our lead trader has been taking on four hour coaching classes (online) with swing trading students that want to lock in the indicators we use and trade swings with more confidence. The package is 495.00 for four hours and currently has a waiting list but the list is moving along. If interested email info@compoundtrading.com to get on the list.

Apr 5 – $EXK Silver Mining SQZMOM turned green today, increasing volume, MACD up – may want to let it cool a bit before long. We are long at 3.49 average cost basis April 4 3000 shares.

April 24 – Watching.

April 19 – Closed 111.40 at target from 104.64 cost avg 500 shares. Will allow MACD to return to bottom for re-entry.

April 10 – Hit 110.45, very near our 111.40 target. Holding, trading 109.34. Long 104.64.

April 4 – Holding long 500 shares from 104.64 now trading 108.17. It is testing all time highs and we may add on a break of all time highs. If it pulls back we may cut for a small profit. First price target is 111.40 (see below)

March 27 – We’re long 104.64 500 shares March 22 at test of 20 MA. Stop is at our entry and we are looking for a fresh break-out. However, the market sentiment is not great right now so we are unsure. There is an upside pivot at 111.38 we are watching for resistance should price continue up. Also watching MACD close.

$BABA Swing trade

March 20 – Wait for MACD to turn up and confirm and stay long until MACD turns down. The Stoch RSI seems to be frontrunning the MACD fyi. $BABA is one of my favorites right now and I see a long entry early in the week.

$NFLX

May 3 – April 25 148.40 Long 500 shares April 25 when MACD turned up per below. Trading 156.28. MACD trending up, SQZMOM trending up and Stoch RSI at top and may come off short term – so a short term turn down is possible here. Will likely re-add when STOCH RSI comes off and turns back up as long as MACD is trending up still and has room to top.

April 24 – Trading 142.87. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 143.75 – waiting for MACD to turn up.

April 10 – We closed flat 145.50. Trading 142.80. Waiting for MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM to turn green for entry long.

April 4 – March 29 we entered 145.50 500 shares when MACD turned up per watch trigger below. Stop is at flat at entry and we will re-enter if we have to. Will look at adding pending triggers – will advise.

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

May 3 – Trading 8.03. MACD pinching. Will enter long when MACD turns up AND be sure price is above moving averages and 20 MA is in fact over 50 MA. 20 50 100 200 all in order with price above in other words. Should be soon.

April 24 – Trading 7.96. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 7.63. MACD still trending down. Waiting for it to turn up.

April 10 – Trading 8.18, Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $GSIT finally cooling off and coming back to earth. Watching that MACD very close for a turn up (after it returns to bottom hopefully).

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and closed Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

$AXP

May 3 – Trading 79.54. Holding long while MACD trends up and price above entry and 20 MA is above 50 MA. Stoch RSI is coming off so we expect some downward pressure short term.

April 24 – Trading 79.63. Long 78.01 500 shares April 20 when MACD turned up. Watching for MACD, Stoch RSI to remain, and SQZMOM to turn green for possible add.

$AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to all line up. Need volume and power. #swingtrading

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

$ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

March 27 – Very close now. SQZMOM just turned green, MA’s are starting to line up but not all yet, Stoch RSI is turned down at top of range so I would like to see it at bottom when we enter and the MACD is turned up. So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

$TAN

May 3 – Trading 17.67. $TAN Watching MACD turned up price over 20 MA SQZMOM green. Need price over 50 MA with 20 MA breach 50 MA.

$TAN Live Chart Link: https://www.tradingview.com/chart/TAN/7JpW1gSP-TAN-Watching-MACD-turned-up-price-over-20-MA-SQZMOM-green-Need/

This is one of those where we are early. In other words the price isn’t above all MA’s yet. So one could take the trade as long as MACD is up and preferably long entry timed when 20 MA is about to breach 50 MA and price is above. But watch out for the 200 MA above. 

$TAN, Chart, Swing, Trade

$TAN Watching MACD turned up price over 20 MA SQZMOM green. Need price over 50 MA with 20 MA breach 50 MA.

April 24 – Trading 17.04. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 17.39. This one is getting close. Stoch RSI has to come off and then turn up. SQZMOM is almost green and MACD cross up. When those line up we will take a long position.

April 10 – Trading 17.20, Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch.  Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – NA

Mar 27 – $TAN chart is now “broken” and price is on its way to the lower pivot around 16.44. All indicators are pointing to down. It closed Friday at 17.29. So we will keenly watch it as it nears the lower pivot and see if the indicators line up for a long trade. If it lost lower pivot  we may even consider a short side entry pending indicators.

Mar 20 – Nice reversal play if it turns out. In addition to below watch the 200 MA as resistance if you go long.

$TAN Reversal Play. Daily MACD needs to turn up, Stoch RSI is up, SQZMOM needs to turn up. 100 MA about to cross 50 MA – bullish.

$VRX

May 3 – Trading 10.50. MACD is turned up and the SQZMOM has not confirmed green. Earnings in six days so watch for that. The MA’s are exactly like the $TAN scenario above so the same rules apply. We are not entering yet but may at any second. Again it is an early trade because you want price above the 200 MA and 20 MA to breach 20 MA that is perfect timing (with MACD trending up). But many people take these early at this point. Refer to considerations noted above with $TAN also. Same set-up.

April 24 – Trading 8.51 Watching.

April 19 – Trading 8.95. Not ready.

Apr 10 – Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – I thought I’d run a poll on my Twitter feed to help us with this one.

$VRX Premarket live chart https://www.tradingview.com/chart/VRX/F7bVqHl7-VRX-Premarket-up-1-MACD-cross-flat-could-this-be-bottom/

March 27 – $VRX continues stepping down on the chart… per below, really important to wait for all the indicators to line up. So we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – This was looking like it was going to curl up last week and bounce but it failed. A great example of carefully watching a falling knife indicators before taking a long position. Use patience and when all indicators in play take a long.

$VRX Bottom Play. Daily MACD needs to turn, Stoch RSI turning up, SQZMOM needs to turn then as MA cross-overs occur it will strengthen.

$TWLO

May 3 – Trading 23.70. Closed 33.57 1000 shares before earnings on a 29.60 buy. Never hold through earnings unless you are unusually confident (yes we did recently with $GOOGL and $AMZN but very unusual for us to do that). Anyway, watching now. Downdraft was intense from forward guidance.

April 24 – Trading 30.82. Holding 1000 shares 29.60.

April 19 – Trading 30.51. April 12 MACD turned up opened long 29.60 1000 shares. 

$TWLO, Swing, Trading

$TWLO Swing Trade going well. Trading 30.51. April 12 MACD turned up opened long 29.60 tight stop.

April 10 – Trading 28.40. Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD cross and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – No change.

March 27 – Price failed when it had to poke through 100 MA and continue – it failed and is on its way (possibly) to the previous low. So here, as with $VRX we employ patience – but get ready because the long in this one will be decent. Use the indicators noted below.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

$WYNN

May 3 – Trading 125.55. Long 122.56 April 25 when MACD turned up (per below) and watching for continuation in MACD and price. Will exit if MACD turns down or price hits our entry. We may even add. It looks good.

 

April 24 – Trading 114.89. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 115.95. MACD trending down. Waiting for bottom and turn up. It has a ways to go.

April 10 – Closed 500 shares Friday 117.20. Trading 116.50. Watching MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM for reset at bottom and turn for re-entry.

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided.

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one.

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

April 10 – Trading 30.84 holding. Long at 30.59. Tight stop.

April 5 – We opened a tight long position (so stop will be tight because you can always re-enter and metals charts still have to confirm so we are a tad early here) long 30.59 500 shares will add if it confirms and will cut bait if it comes off at most 2% and re-enter. Indicators look good BUT we are early. Use caution until metals etc confirm.

$XME Metals and Mining ETF Above 21 ema 8 ema 20 MA 200 MA MACD turned up SQZMOM turned green today

March 27 – Price action has been poor since last report, the 200 MA is just below price now so we are going to see if the indicators line up for a bounce long position.

March 20 – MACD is pinching and about to turn up, also waiting for price above 20 MA. This is a great looking chart and an argument could be made that a long position before everything lines up as I noted is sound. It’s a great looking chart because MACD is bottom (for clarity), so when it turns if all other indicators look good there should be room for a decent trade. Caution should be noted that now after having gone through a number of charts this evening the market is at a decision so any swing trades should be considered at length and stops should be tight IMO.

March 27 – Almost a replay from last week (the indicators), so we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – Like so many of the charts this week, there is indecision. However, if the indicators line up this has excellent upside potential. The MACD pinching at the bottom is key IMO.

March 27 – It is holding its 200 MA like a trooper, but I want to see it at least be over 20 MA and other indicators to line up.

April 10 – No change.

April 5 – $XLE chart is very similar to $RIG and others in this space, HOWEVER, it is still under 200 MA. On watch for break of 200 MA.

March 27 – The 50 has crossed the 100 and the 20 the 200 to downside – this is very bearish in the near term. Watching. It does qualify as a short and best when MACD at top turning down and Stoch RSI at top turning down with confirmation of price action and MA’s.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Needs 200 day and to trade above 20 MA for long or it becomes a short.

March 20 – MACD is pinching on the turn back up – waiting for it to turn up and 45.50 to hold for one day to confirm break out. Or, on downdraft I would look at a 100 MA long entry also.

April 5 – Same as $SLX indicators above. Very close now.

March 27 – The $X trade is almost identical to $SLX above. Waiting.

March 20 – This one is riskier than most on this list, however, I am watching the MACD for a turn up for a possible long.

April 4 – Holding long 500 shares from 104.64 now trading 108.17. It is testing all time highs and we may add on a break of all time highs. If it pulls back we may cut for a small profit. First price target is 111.40 (see below)

March 27 – We’re long 104.64 500 shares March 22 at test of 20 MA. Stop is at our entry and we are looking for a fresh break-out. However, the market sentiment is not great right now so we are unsure. There is an upside pivot at 111.38 we are watching for resistance should price continue up. Also watching MACD close.

March 20 – Wait for MACD to turn up and confirm and stay long until MACD turns down. The Stoch RSI seems to be frontrunning the MACD fyi. $BABA is one of my favorites right now and I see a long entry early in the week.

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

$GSIT

April 24 – Trading 7.96. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 7.63. MACD still trending down. Waiting for it to turn up.

April 10 – Trading 8.18, Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $GSIT finally cooling off and coming back to earth. Watching that MACD very close for a turn up (after it returns to bottom hopefully).

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and closed Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

$AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to all line up. Need volume and power. #swingtrading

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

$ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

March 27 – Very close now. SQZMOM just turned green, MA’s are starting to line up but not all yet, Stoch RSI is turned down at top of range so I would like to see it at bottom when we enter and the MACD is turned up. So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

$TAN

April 24 – Trading 17.04. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 17.39. This one is getting close. Stoch RSI has to come off and then turn up. SQZMOM is almost green and MACD cross up. When those line up we will take a long position.

April 10 – Trading 17.20, Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch.  Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – NA

Mar 27 – $TAN chart is now “broken” and price is on its way to the lower pivot around 16.44. All indicators are pointing to down. It closed Friday at 17.29. So we will keenly watch it as it nears the lower pivot and see if the indicators line up for a long trade. If it lost lower pivot  we may even consider a short side entry pending indicators.

Mar 20 – Nice reversal play if it turns out. In addition to below watch the 200 MA as resistance if you go long.

$TAN Reversal Play. Daily MACD needs to turn up, Stoch RSI is up, SQZMOM needs to turn up. 100 MA about to cross 50 MA – bullish.

$VRX Premarket live chart https://www.tradingview.com/chart/VRX/F7bVqHl7-VRX-Premarket-up-1-MACD-cross-flat-could-this-be-bottom/

March 27 – $VRX continues stepping down on the chart… per below, really important to wait for all the indicators to line up. So we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – This was looking like it was going to curl up last week and bounce but it failed. A great example of carefully watching a falling knife indicators before taking a long position. Use patience and when all indicators in play take a long.

$VRX Bottom Play. Daily MACD needs to turn, Stoch RSI turning up, SQZMOM needs to turn then as MA cross-overs occur it will strengthen.

April 4 – No change.

March 27 – Price failed when it had to poke through 100 MA and continue – it failed and is on its way (possibly) to the previous low. So here, as with $VRX we employ patience – but get ready because the long in this one will be decent. Use the indicators noted below.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

$WYNN

April 24 – Trading 114.89. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 115.95. MACD trending down. Waiting for bottom and turn up. It has a ways to go.

April 10 – Closed 500 shares Friday 117.20. Trading 116.50. Watching MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM for reset at bottom and turn for re-entry.

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided. 

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one. 

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

$XME

April 24 – Trading 29.79. Watching.

April 19 – Trading 29.48. Close flat 30.59 on the 12th. Testing 200 MA now. Watching for Stoch RSI to turn up, MACD to turn up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 10 – Trading 30.84 holding. Long at 30.59. Tight stop.

April 5 – We opened a tight long position (so stop will be tight because you can always re-enter and metals charts still have to confirm so we are a tad early here) long 30.59 500 shares will add if it confirms and will cut bait if it comes off at most 2% and re-enter. Indicators look good BUT we are early. Use caution until metals etc confirm.

$XME Metals and Mining ETF Above 21 ema 8 ema 20 MA 200 MA MACD turned up SQZMOM turned green today

March 27 – Price action has been poor since last report, the 200 MA is just below price now so we are going to see if the indicators line up for a bounce long position.

March 20 – MACD is pinching and about to turn up, also waiting for price above 20 MA. This is a great looking chart and an argument could be made that a long position before everything lines up as I noted is sound. It’s a great looking chart because MACD is bottom (for clarity), so when it turns if all other indicators look good there should be room for a decent trade. Caution should be noted that now after having gone through a number of charts this evening the market is at a decision so any swing trades should be considered at length and stops should be tight IMO.

April 5 – $URRE isn’t as close to a buy as $XME above, HOWEVER, the SQZMOM did signal green today and the MACD is slightly turning up! So it is on HIGH WATCH now!

March 27 – Almost a replay from last week (the indicators), so we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – Like so many of the charts this week, there is indecision. However, if the indicators line up this has excellent upside potential. The MACD pinching at the bottom is key IMO.

April 10 – No change.

April 5 – $XLE chart is very similar to $RIG and others in this space, HOWEVER, it is still under 200 MA. On watch for break of 200 MA.

March 27 – The 50 has crossed the 100 and the 20 the 200 to downside – this is very bearish in the near term. Watching. It does qualify as a short and best when MACD at top turning down and Stoch RSI at top turning down with confirmation of price action and MA’s.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Needs 200 day and to trade above 20 MA for long or it becomes a short.

March 20 – MACD is pinching on the turn back up – waiting for it to turn up and 45.50 to hold for one day to confirm break out. Or, on downdraft I would look at a 100 MA long entry also.

March 27 – The $X trade is almost identical to $SLX above. Waiting.

March 20 – This one is riskier than most on this list, however, I am watching the MACD for a turn up for a possible long.

Notices:

Good morning! 

Markets are still in flux so this is an update of holds, closed trades and new trades within the stocks we are currently covering for swing trades on this list (one of three lists – the other two are to follow today or this evening).

The new swing trade picks on deck are not near flashing buy signals so for now (while markets sort out) we will update this list (and the others) over the next day or two and hopefully the markets will get positive again in short order so we can release the new picks also.

Any updates below specific to the more recent reports are highlighted in red to simplify the process for you.

However, the market sentiment is not great right now so we are unsure. There is an upside pivot at 111.38 we are watching for resistance should price continue up. Also watching MACD close.

April 4 – March 29 we entered 145.50 500 shares when MACD turned up per watch trigger below. Stop is at flat at entry and we will re-enter if we have to. Will look at adding pending triggers – will advise.

$NFLX Live chart with indicators https://www.tradingview.com/chart/NFLX/ozKJQ8t4-NFLX-March-29-we-entered-swing-trade-145-50-when-MACD-turned-t/

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

$GSIT

April 19 – Trading 7.63. MACD still trending down. Waiting for it to turn up.

April 10 – Trading 8.18, Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $GSIT finally cooling off and coming back to earth. Watching that MACD very close for a turn up (after it returns to bottom hopefully).

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and closed Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

April 10 – Trading 77.77. Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to line up. Need volume & power. #swingtrading $AXP Price Trigger Power Trade Risk Reward – PTPTRR #trading Over the Wall!

$AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to all line up. Need volume and power. #swingtrading

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

$ABX – Barrick Gold

April 19 – Trading 19.46. Indicator indecision. Waiting on clarity.

April 10 – Waiting on MACD and Stoch RSI to cross and turn up for long. SQZMOM is green now. Trading 19.09.

April 4 – $ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

$ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

March 27 – Very close now. SQZMOM just turned green, MA’s are starting to line up but not all yet, Stoch RSI is turned down at top of range so I would like to see it at bottom when we enter and the MACD is turned up. So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

$TAN

April 19 – Trading 17.39. This one is getting close. Stoch RSI has to come off and then turn up. SQZMOM is almost green and MACD cross up. When those line up we will take a long position.

April 10 – Trading 17.20, Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch.  Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – NA

Mar 27 – $TAN chart is now “broken” and price is on its way to the lower pivot around 16.44. All indicators are pointing to down. It closed Friday at 17.29. So we will keenly watch it as it nears the lower pivot and see if the indicators line up for a long trade. If it lost lower pivot  we may even consider a short side entry pending indicators.

Mar 20 – Nice reversal play if it turns out. In addition to below watch the 200 MA as resistance if you go long.

$TAN Reversal Play. Daily MACD needs to turn up, Stoch RSI is up, SQZMOM needs to turn up. 100 MA about to cross 50 MA – bullish.

Apr 10 – Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – I thought I’d run a poll on my Twitter feed to help us with this one.

$VRX Premarket live chart https://www.tradingview.com/chart/VRX/F7bVqHl7-VRX-Premarket-up-1-MACD-cross-flat-could-this-be-bottom/

March 27 – $VRX continues stepping down on the chart… per below, really important to wait for all the indicators to line up. So we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – This was looking like it was going to curl up last week and bounce but it failed. A great example of carefully watching a falling knife indicators before taking a long position. Use patience and when all indicators in play take a long.

$VRX Bottom Play. Daily MACD needs to turn, Stoch RSI turning up, SQZMOM needs to turn then as MA cross-overs occur it will strengthen.

$TWLO, Swing, Trading

$TWLO Swing Trade going well. Trading 30.51. April 12 MACD turned up opened long 29.60 tight stop.

April 10 – Trading 28.40. Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD cross and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – No change.

March 27 – Price failed when it had to poke through 100 MA and continue – it failed and is on its way (possibly) to the previous low. So here, as with $VRX we employ patience – but get ready because the long in this one will be decent. Use the indicators noted below.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

$WYNN

April 19 – Trading 115.95. MACD trending down. Waiting for bottom and turn up. It has a ways to go.

April 10 – Closed 500 shares Friday 117.20. Trading 116.50. Watching MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM for reset at bottom and turn for re-entry.

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided. 

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one. 

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

$XME

April 19 – Trading 29.48. Close flat 30.59 on the 12th. Testing 200 MA now. Watching for Stoch RSI to turn up, MACD to turn up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 10 – Trading 30.84 holding. Long at 30.59. Tight stop.

April 5 – We opened a tight long position (so stop will be tight because you can always re-enter and metals charts still have to confirm so we are a tad early here) long 30.59 500 shares will add if it confirms and will cut bait if it comes off at most 2% and re-enter. Indicators look good BUT we are early. Use caution until metals etc confirm.

$XME Metals and Mining ETF Above 21 ema 8 ema 20 MA 200 MA MACD turned up SQZMOM turned green today

March 27 – Price action has been poor since last report, the 200 MA is just below price now so we are going to see if the indicators line up for a bounce long position.

March 20 – MACD is pinching and about to turn up, also waiting for price above 20 MA. This is a great looking chart and an argument could be made that a long position before everything lines up as I noted is sound. It’s a great looking chart because MACD is bottom (for clarity), so when it turns if all other indicators look good there should be room for a decent trade. Caution should be noted that now after having gone through a number of charts this evening the market is at a decision so any swing trades should be considered at length and stops should be tight IMO.

Apr 10 – No change.

April 5 – $URRE isn’t as close to a buy as $XME above, HOWEVER, the SQZMOM did signal green today and the MACD is slightly turning up! So it is on HIGH WATCH now!

March 27 – Almost a replay from last week (the indicators), so we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – Like so many of the charts this week, there is indecision. However, if the indicators line up this has excellent upside potential. The MACD pinching at the bottom is key IMO.

$RIG Sooo close. MACD up, SQZMOM about to turn GR, wedged, needs increasing volume and break-out confirmation for a long.

March 27 – It is holding its 200 MA like a trooper, but I want to see it at least be over 20 MA and other indicators to line up.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Above 200 day but needs to trade above 20 MA for long.

$XLE

April 19 – Watching

April 10 – No change.

April 5 – $XLE chart is very similar to $RIG and others in this space, HOWEVER, it is still under 200 MA. On watch for break of 200 MA.

March 27 – The 50 has crossed the 100 and the 20 the 200 to downside – this is very bearish in the near term. Watching. It does qualify as a short and best when MACD at top turning down and Stoch RSI at top turning down with confirmation of price action and MA’s.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Needs 200 day and to trade above 20 MA for long or it becomes a short.

$SLX – Vaneck Vectors Steel

April 19 – At 200 MA support test now. Watching indicators closely.

April 10 – No change. Trading 39.90.

April 5 – $SLX On watch for SQZMOM to turn green and MACD to turn up. Close.

$SLX, watch, chart

$SLX On watch for SQZMOM to turn green and MACD to turn up. Close.

March 27 – As with $XLE above this also qualifies as a short (pending short term indicators lining up when you take the position). Price lost the 100 MA and the indicators are negative – very bearish. Watching.

March 20 – MACD is pinching on the turn back up – waiting for it to turn up and 45.50 to hold for one day to confirm break out. Or, on downdraft I would look at a 100 MA long entry also.

$X – United States Steel Corp.

April 19 – Trading 28.65. At 200 MA support test. As above watching indicators closely.

April 10 – Trading 34.40 premarket Monday. ON HIGH WATCH MACD about to cross up.

April 5 – Same as $SLX indicators above. Very close now.

March 27 – The $X trade is almost identical to $SLX above. Waiting.

March 20 – This one is riskier than most on this list, however, I am watching the MACD for a turn up for a possible long.

$AKS – Iron Steel Mills Foundry

April 19 – Trading 6.40. Closed 6.97 fr loss April 11 when it lost 200 MA. On watch again.

April 10 – Long 7.30 April 7 1000 shares. MACD just turned up but SQZMOM is not green yet. 1/3 size entry with other 2/3 entry when SQZMOM turns green with other indicators confirming.

April 5 – $LIT Alerted on March 27 report and went long 27.32 March 30 – long entry still intact as MACD is up, SQZMOM green or wait for pull back then enter. We expect this sector to stay hot – but if not in you may want to wait for STOCH RSI to cool and turn back up and go long.

April 4 – Holding long 500 shares from 104.64 now trading 108.17. It is testing all time highs and we may add on a break of all time highs. If it pulls back we may cut for a small profit. First price target is 111.40 (see below)

March 27 – We’re long 104.64 500 shares March 22 at test of 20 MA. Stop is at our entry and we are looking for a fresh break-out. However, the market sentiment is not great right now so we are unsure. There is an upside pivot at 111.38 we are watching for resistance should price continue up. Also watching MACD close.

$BABA Swing trade

March 20 – Wait for MACD to turn up and confirm and stay long until MACD turns down. The Stoch RSI seems to be frontrunning the MACD fyi. $BABA is one of my favorites right now and I see a long entry early in the week.

April 4 – March 29 we entered 145.50 500 shares when MACD turned up per watch trigger below. Stop is at flat at entry and we will re-enter if we have to. Will look at adding pending triggers – will advise.

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

$GSIT

April 10 – Trading 8.18, Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – $GSIT finally cooling off and coming back to earth. Watching that MACD very close for a turn up (after it returns to bottom hopefully).

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and closed Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

$ABX Setting up nicely. Above 200 MA, wait for Stoch RSI to return to bottom and turn if possible, be sure SQZMOM green and MACD turns up and kapow. Some volume and power would help too.

March 27 – Very close now. SQZMOM just turned green, MA’s are starting to line up but not all yet, Stoch RSI is turned down at top of range so I would like to see it at bottom when we enter and the MACD is turned up. So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

$TAN

April 10 – Trading 17.20, Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch.  Waiting on Stoch RSI to curl up, MACD to cross up and SQZMOM to confirm green for long.

April 4 – NA

Mar 27 – $TAN chart is now “broken” and price is on its way to the lower pivot around 16.44. All indicators are pointing to down. It closed Friday at 17.29. So we will keenly watch it as it nears the lower pivot and see if the indicators line up for a long trade. If it lost lower pivot  we may even consider a short side entry pending indicators.

Mar 20 – Nice reversal play if it turns out. In addition to below watch the 200 MA as resistance if you go long.

$TAN Reversal Play. Daily MACD needs to turn up, Stoch RSI is up, SQZMOM needs to turn up. 100 MA about to cross 50 MA – bullish.

$VRX Premarket live chart https://www.tradingview.com/chart/VRX/F7bVqHl7-VRX-Premarket-up-1-MACD-cross-flat-could-this-be-bottom/

March 27 – $VRX continues stepping down on the chart… per below, really important to wait for all the indicators to line up. So we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – This was looking like it was going to curl up last week and bounce but it failed. A great example of carefully watching a falling knife indicators before taking a long position. Use patience and when all indicators in play take a long.

$VRX Bottom Play. Daily MACD needs to turn, Stoch RSI turning up, SQZMOM needs to turn then as MA cross-overs occur it will strengthen.

$TWLO

April 10 – Trading 28.40. Stoch RSI curling up, waiting on MACD cross and SQZMOM to turn green for long.

April 4 – No change.

March 27 – Price failed when it had to poke through 100 MA and continue – it failed and is on its way (possibly) to the previous low. So here, as with $VRX we employ patience – but get ready because the long in this one will be decent. Use the indicators noted below.

March 20 – Looks like bottom may be in. It is trending up. Looking for 100 MA to cross down under 20 MA (pinching now) and price to trade above 20 MA for long. Be sure to wait for MACD to confirm also first.

$TWLO Bottom Play on Watch. 100 MA needs to cross 20 MA with price over them. Stoch RSI pinch, MACD pinch, SQMOM turning up not green.

$WYNN

April 10 – Closed 500 shares Friday 117.20. Trading 116.50. Watching MACD, Stoch RSI, SQZMOM for reset at bottom and turn for re-entry.

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided. 

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one. 

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.

$WYNN 200 MA needs to cross 100 MA, trade over 110 full day. Stoch RSI peaking, MACD up, SQMOM up.

$XME

April 10 – Trading 30.84 holding. Long at 30.59. Tight stop.

April 5 – We opened a tight long position (so stop will be tight because you can always re-enter and metals charts still have to confirm so we are a tad early here) long 30.59 500 shares will add if it confirms and will cut bait if it comes off at most 2% and re-enter. Indicators look good BUT we are early. Use caution until metals etc confirm.

$XME Metals and Mining ETF Above 21 ema 8 ema 20 MA 200 MA MACD turned up SQZMOM turned green today

March 27 – Price action has been poor since last report, the 200 MA is just below price now so we are going to see if the indicators line up for a bounce long position.

March 20 – MACD is pinching and about to turn up, also waiting for price above 20 MA. This is a great looking chart and an argument could be made that a long position before everything lines up as I noted is sound. It’s a great looking chart because MACD is bottom (for clarity), so when it turns if all other indicators look good there should be room for a decent trade. Caution should be noted that now after having gone through a number of charts this evening the market is at a decision so any swing trades should be considered at length and stops should be tight IMO.

$URRE

Apr 10 – No change.

April 5 – $URRE isn’t as close to a buy as $XME above, HOWEVER, the SQZMOM did signal green today and the MACD is slightly turning up! So it is on HIGH WATCH now!

March 27 – Almost a replay from last week (the indicators), so we remain patient and watch.

March 20 – Like so many of the charts this week, there is indecision. However, if the indicators line up this has excellent upside potential. The MACD pinching at the bottom is key IMO.

$RIG, Chart

$RIG Sooo close. MACD up, SQZMOM about to turn GR, wedged, needs increasing volume and break-out confirmation for a long.

March 27 – It is holding its 200 MA like a trooper, but I want to see it at least be over 20 MA and other indicators to line up.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Above 200 day but needs to trade above 20 MA for long.

$XLE

April 10 – No change.

April 5 – $XLE chart is very similar to $RIG and others in this space, HOWEVER, it is still under 200 MA. On watch for break of 200 MA.

March 27 – The 50 has crossed the 100 and the 20 the 200 to downside – this is very bearish in the near term. Watching. It does qualify as a short and best when MACD at top turning down and Stoch RSI at top turning down with confirmation of price action and MA’s.

March 20 – MACD pinching, watching for it to turn up, Needs 200 day and to trade above 20 MA for long or it becomes a short.

$SLX – Vaneck Vectors Steel

April 10 – No change. Trading 39.90.

April 5 – $SLX On watch for SQZMOM to turn green and MACD to turn up. Close.

$SLX, watch, chart

$SLX On watch for SQZMOM to turn green and MACD to turn up. Close.

March 27 – As with $XLE above this also qualifies as a short (pending short term indicators lining up when you take the position). Price lost the 100 MA and the indicators are negative – very bearish. Watching.

March 20 – MACD is pinching on the turn back up – waiting for it to turn up and 45.50 to hold for one day to confirm break out. Or, on downdraft I would look at a 100 MA long entry also.

$X – United States Steel Corp.

April 10 – Trading 34.40 premarket Monday. ON HIGH WATCH MACD about to cross up.

April 5 – Same as $SLX indicators above. Very close now.

March 27 – The $X trade is almost identical to $SLX above. Waiting.

March 20 – This one is riskier than most on this list, however, I am watching the MACD for a turn up for a possible long.

$AKS – Iron Steel Mills Foundry

April 10 – Long 7.30 April 7 1000 shares. MACD just turned up but SQZMOM is not green yet. 1/3 size entry with other 2/3 entry when SQZMOM turns green with other indicators confirming.

March 27 – AKS is coming in on the 200 MA test. Watching.

March 20 – MACD is turning up now, watching for price to trade above 20, 50, 100 that are clustered together. It is well over 200 MA.

Good morning swing traders and welcome to the Compound Trading Weekly Swing Trading stock picks memo (Part 1 of 3) for the week of April 2, 2017! $LIT, $BA, $RIG, $ABX, $EXK, $BABA, $VRX, $NFLX, $WYNN, $URRE, $TAN, $TWLO, $GSIT, $AXP, $XLE, $SLX, $X, $XME, $AKS and more.

Email us at info@compoundtrading.com anytime with any questions about any of the swing trades listed below. Or, if we get bogged down private message Curtis in trade room or direct message him on Twitter. Market hours are tough but we endeavor to get back to everyone after market each day.

Notices:

Good morning! 

Some new adds and some clean up details below. Markets need to confirm oil break out and all metals etc will go with it. So it is that or the opposite any second – and of course that will trigger another report. 

$BA Boeing has everything a break-out chart needs except some fine detail confirmations, $LIT we alerted on Mar 27 report as new on watchlist to be added and are in long and still looks good for entries and there are more below. Oil energy related such as $RIG below are on high watch also. As above if we get a break-out in energy related we will re-publish another report as time allows intra week.

There is a short setting up on $SBUX but we may wait until next quarter.

Per previous, the following are some of the stocks we are looking to add to our coverage and for now remain on our watchlist only (until this near term decision in markets plays out): $CEW, $MYL, $TZA, $TREE, $NVDA, $SOXS, $KBH, $BCOR

Also, one point of discussion with coaching students lately has been returning to the triggers to use when buying and selling swing trade positions – this becomes vividly important especially in times of market chop.

As such, it is critical to understand the basics of PTPTRR – Price Trigger Power Trade Risk Reward. If you do not understand the basics of these principles you need to either get some quick coaching (usually five hours or less is all that is needed) or study up and research these important skills on your own – BUT do not swing trade until you know the basics of these principles please – thanks!

Specific to our picks below, we have updated the most important information and will flesh this out more as we go. 

This weeks publication is in three parts:

You can consider this new document below Part 1 of this week’s picks and the previous picks Part 2, you can find the previous swing trading picks updates here.

Also, click here for a weekly public post on swing trading simple charts for $DXY, $USDJPY, $VIX, $WTI, $GLD, $SLV, $GDX, and $SPY that we will call Part 3 of this weeks picks.

When using live charts (if and when provided), you can either press play button on chart (once opened) for a quick view or click the share icon at the bottom right of chart (just right of the thumbs up symbol) and then click “make it mine” – this will open chart in your browser. Any problems with this let us know. Also, please note, we can only create ten new live charts on TradingView a day so that is why you see some with live charts and over time we publish them.

Indicators on charts are represented as; 20 MA light blue, 50 MA Purple, 100 MA dark blue, 200 MA pink. 8 EMA Yellow, 21 EMA Green. VWAP when available orange.

Any updates below specific to the more recent reports are highlighted in red to simplify the process for you.

$LIT  – Global Lithium

April 5 – $LIT Alerted on March 27 report and went long 27.32 March 30 – long entry still intact as MACD is up, SQZMOM green or wait for pull back then enter. We expect this sector to stay hot – but if not in you may want to wait for STOCH RSI to cool and turn back up and go long.

$BABA – Alibaba

April 4 – Holding long 500 shares from 104.64 now trading 108.17. It is testing all time highs and we may add on a break of all time highs. If it pulls back we may cut for a small profit. First price target is 111.40 (see below)

$BABA Live chart with indicators including that SQZMOM indicator – sweeet tool! https://www.tradingview.com/chart/BABA/Lbao9BVu-BABA-Swing-Trade-going-well-Our-Swing-Trading-side-is-in-at-10/

March 27 – We’re long 104.64 500 shares March 22 at test of 20 MA. Stop is at our entry and we are looking for a fresh break-out. However, the market sentiment is not great right now so we are unsure. There is an upside pivot at 111.38 we are watching for resistance should price continue up. Also watching MACD close.

$BABA, Swing, Trading

$BABA Swing trade

March 20 – Wait for MACD to turn up and confirm and stay long until MACD turns down. The Stoch RSI seems to be frontrunning the MACD fyi. $BABA is one of my favorites right now and I see a long entry early in the week.

$NFLX

April 4 – March 29 we entered 145.50 500 shares when MACD turned up per watch trigger below. Stop is at flat at entry and we will re-enter if we have to. Will look at adding pending triggers – will advise.

March 27 – MACD has been flat or turned down since last post. Looking close at MACD turn up and entry this week.

March 20 – The only thing that concerns me is the price staying above approximately 145.05 as a low on any given day. I may also look for that in addition to indicators lists below. Same thing with this one, exit when MACD turning down. Chances are high I will enter long early week.

$GSIT

April 4 – $GSIT finally cooling off and coming back to earth. Watching that MACD very close for a turn up (after it returns to bottom hopefully).

Mar 27 – Sure enough, it was on its way to the 20 MA this past week and stopped short and got some lift and closed Friday sitting on 8 ema. Will wait for it to line up.

Mar 20 – The reason I have this on the list is because as a break-out stock it is about as clean as they come, however, break out stocks come with risk. So you have two options (and shorting right now isn’t one), you can either wait for it to get near a 20 MA test and go long when other indicators line up or open a short time-frame chart and trade it. I will be waiting for the 20 MA test.

$AXP American Express. So close. SQZMOM about to turn, MACD cross on deck just need PTPTRR to all line up. Need volume and power. #swingtrading

March 27 – MACD has turned down and SQZMOM is red and negative but Stoch RSI is starting to curl – waiting for that MACD to take an entry.

March 20 – This is a trend play. The only thing you have to do is manage your entry point and risk. Wait for indicators to confirm next leg up about to start and take long entry. When MACD turns down on daily that is your exit. I really like this one, especially because MA’s are all on right side (aligned) and trend reversal is in place.

$AXP Setting up for next possible leg up. Wait for MACD SQZMOM Stoch RSI to turn up. Will likely test near 100 MA at min 50MA.

So we’re waiting for the MA’s to line up and the Stoch RSI to be near or at bottom curling up (ideally).

March 20 – I will enter a long when price above 20 50 100 200 MA’s and will likely wait for the 200 MA to cross 100 MA (although not absolute). Like with all others I will exit when MACD turns down.

$WYNN

April 4 – We triggered a stop at flat March 27 and had a re-entry at 111.04 when we looked at it again for 500 shares. Currently trading at 116.00 and we are watching MACD.  Which is currently at top. We may exit as MACD turns down and re-enter when MACD turns back up. Alternatively we may ride the MACD turn down as long as our original entry isn’t triggered as stop and when MACD turns back up add to position. Both are valid and we are undecided. 

March 26 – We took a long position at 110.93 for 500 share start on March 21. HOWEVER, we have a stop at our entry price (due to current market sentiment) and it is currently trading at 111.92. Careful with this one. 

March 20 – This isn’t easy to swing but is so hot it would be foolish to ignore, so discipline like with so many other plays in the current market is required. Seeing it hold 110.00 for a full day with indicators in line would put me in a long position.
