Review of Compound Trading Chat Room Stock Trading, Algorithm Stock Charting Calls and Alerts for Friday Feb 24, 2017;  $CEMP, $AXDX, $RH, $TST, $IPCI, $EARS, $OWCP – $UWT, $BSTG, $ONTX, $DUST, $VRX, $TRCH, $LGCY, $SSH, $ASM etc 


Time stamped entries (in permanent archive) copied to this blog in italics (below) are direct live log chat from chat trade room as they occurred (random chat from myself not applicable or other misc chat deleted). Chat trade room is also video recorded daily for trade archive.

In addition to chat, this trade-room has live voice broadcast (that covers in detail what indicators I am looking for in and out off each trade) and has live chart screen sharing right from my monitor to the room with all indicators I am looking at.



We are working on a series of videos that include trades from week of Feb 20 – 24 and various educational topics that we expected to complete weekend of 25 – 27th but it seems it will take a few more days.

Trading and The Markets Looking Forward:

Recent notes in post market reports that still apply,

“The small and micro momentum stocks continue to pop, however, traders need to be cautious because often its the low floats and thin trade can be difficult to chip out of positions – caution warranted in many ways.”

“These low float micros have in past signaled the end of a cycle in the market – keep that in mind.”

“Our standard plays that reflect the six algorithm charting we do are all at decisions at either support or resistance so this should get really interesting soon.”

Per yesterday, “Our swing trading side continues to outperform all my expectations for 2017 (you can find the most recent unlocked swing trading newsletter on our blog) – I had a feeling it was going to do well, just didn’t quite expect a grandslam. We’re in the middle of compiling our next set of stock picks for the swing trading members and will have them out over next few days – hopefully that batch will bring the same type of returns as the new year batch did and continue to in most instances.


Per recent; $DXY US Dollar is threatening to the trend reversal side, but not confirmed, awaiting market direction.

Gold $GLD $XAUUSD / Gold Miner’s $GDX:

Per recent; Gold and Miner’s are both at what we consider key resistance. 

Silver $SLV:

Per recent; Silver is at what consider key resistance.

Crude Oil $USOIL $WTI:

Per recent; Crude oil continues to threaten a key support and resistance area that we have used as an area of accumulation long (we’re long as long as the trend is in place – the trend is your friend and we’re trading the range until it isn’t).

Volatility $VIX:

Per recent; Volatility continues its flat line.

$SPY S&P 500:

Per recent, “$SPY continues the break-out. Trade the Fibs and buy the dip until you can’t. Respect stops.”

Natural Gas:

Watch 2.44 – 2.57

Momentum Trades:

Per recent; As noted above, the low float micros and small cap issues continue in momo.

Swing Trading:

Per recent; As noted above, our Swing Trading service has sent one out of the park after another. Continues to look good forward.

11:02 am Sandy S : mathews updates help me center too lol
11:02 am seth m : ya Mathew rocks
11:02 am seth m : 🙂
11:02 am banka tronic : ($TOPS is an example of so of these low float runners that are technical b/os )
11:03 am Curtis M : hey banka thanks for dropping in:)
11:03 am banka tronic : Thank you kindly for this trading forum :))
11:03 am Curtis M : 🙂
11:04 am Sandy S : I trade $TOPS lots like that one
11:05 am Jake R : $TOPS just came off a bit intra
11:06 am banka tronic : I look for the pre-market pops on the low floats usually under 25 million float + catalyst:some news…
11:06 am OILK K : $VIX LOL
11:07 am OILQ K : luv those plays banka
11:07 am banka tronic : Keeping an eye on the 13EPA 50&200 MAs using 1 to 5 min trendlines when volume hits5k & builds
11:07 am banka tronic : for momo trades.
11:07 am Curtis M : nice share banka:)
11:08 am Curtis M : some nuggets in there
11:08 am seth m : Mathew I’ll likey send you a few questions this weekend
11:09 am banka tronic : np 🙂 Also watch the 1Y: D chart with those indicators for possible support/resistance levels
11:09 am seth m : $CEI poppin
11:09 am Mathew Waterfall : Send me questions anytime on twitter @quadzilla_jr
11:09 am Jake R : Thanks Mathew!!
11:09 am banka tronic : Very cool info Mathew!
11:09 am OILQ K : agree
11:10 am OILQ K : learning in here everyday thanks guys and ladies
11:10 am Mathew Waterfall : you bet. quick break back in a few
11:13 am banka tronic : If those low floats that pop up on the pre market scanners are over 25% I weigh pros/cons for red to green moves where they dip then poss test market open. Too high of gap ups have a tendency to gap & crap
11:14 am banka tronic : Yet some climb pre market to 40-60 and sometimes have a .10-.20 pop if overall futures are solid hard green…
11:14 am banka tronic : 40-60%
11:16 am banka tronic : Also watch for dojis on the 1 & 5 min chart for p/a price action bullish confirm candles using a 1 or 5 min trendline for .10-.40ish scalps on those momos. Hope this info helps !
11:16 am Jake R : Thans Banka!
11:16 am Jake R : Hopefully we can see you in action in here.
11:16 am OILK K : ya
11:16 am OILK K : lol
11:16 am Sandy S : yup
11:17 am banka tronic : And then again I check the short just to see if there might be a nice squeeze factor if those llow floats have @ 20% shares short ;))
11:17 am Curtis M : on mic
11:18 am Curtis M : ya would be nice to have Banka do some trading yup yup 🙂
11:19 am banka tronic : I am working on these still learning only averaging $125 per trade as I dont want to risk more than $1500- $2k per trade with all the stress in my life. lol This amount also helps me cut losses quick to about $50-$100 w/o major pain. I am an activist so have to balance & keep the goooood vibes.)
11:19 am sandeep a : $NAO pop
11:20 am Sandy S : this is a good vibes room:) haha
11:20 am banka tronic : That amount also catches big time runners on those low floats w news to some $1k-$2k profits tho peeps)
11:20 am banka tronic : Ok enough from me-just wanted to put the info out there quick.
11:20 am Jake R : looking at $FUEL for aft intra scalp
11:20 am Jake R : awesome banka
11:21 am Phillip H : ya nice info
11:22 am Curtis M : a lot of the GURUS out there got chopped up this morning fyi
11:22 am Sandy S : ya noticed that curt
11:22 am Sandy S : we didn’t lol:)
11:22 am banka tronic : Also have been noticing that some of these low float spikers tend to have a culmination point that drops off at exactly 11:15am anyone notice this?
11:23 am Sandy S : yes always time of day
11:23 am Curtis M : for sure TOD huge
11:23 am John M : we ee that all the time
11:24 am Cara R : time fo day really important Curt is always preaching it
11:25 am banka tronic : $BLPH had that b/o quick 1 min trendline run up & profits got out before that 1 min trendline broke at 11:04 tho so its not an exact thing
11:26 am Cara R : ya $BLPH was one that we were in really early in cycle
11:26 am banka tronic : Ok I’m here to learn lol its easy to talk but I need to grow my profit chart as well. I ‘m still learning.
11:26 am Sandy S : haha
11:28 am OILK K : looking at $UGAZ for an add
11:28 am OILK K : and $TLT add
11:29 am Curtis M : $EDAP halt
11:31 am Curtis M : on mic
11:35 am banka tronic : Might retest that 2.70 candle on the 1 year
11:37 am Sandy S : curt makes most his green on halts banka… maybe not maybe his swings cause he uses big account in swings
11:37 am banka tronic : vol is almostmorte altough spead tightened
11:37 am Sandy S : hes a halt expert for sure
11:37 am banka tronic : *although
11:38 am banka tronic : good call MMtricks to lure look how 2.11s came in
11:38 am Sandy S : yes
11:39 am seth m : ya that one sucked
11:39 am sandeep a : $JAGX pops
11:39 am sandeep a : like your style banka
11:40 am OILQ K : $JAGX been on curts watchlists i think
11:41 am Sandy S : ya it has
11:41 am OILQ K : Silver swing going awesome
11:42 am banka tronic : thank you $JAGX is a very nice mover on news. Some of these co.s seem to put out *news as per the chart. Nice channel on that 1h chart
11:43 am OILQ K : decreasing vol
11:43 am banka tronic : Just tend to be weaker bounces when overall markets are blah. Mid day b/o tend to be fake outs
11:43 am Flash G : yeah
11:46 am Phillip H : how a bout that SILVER trade wow did we nail that
11:46 am Phillip H : :):)
11:47 am Phillip H : i dont say much but that makes me happy
11:48 am Mathew Waterfall : Notable options flow. GLD/SLV solidly call side. $TZA seeing some call side. $miners mostly call side but more split. Utes and bonds call side. People positioning for some carnage
11:48 am Jake R : correction time mat?
11:50 am Mathew Waterfall : I have a very hard time getting super bearish here as we have been gringing. My bias has been down for the past month but I haven’t played it outside of some small Vix plays for some small wins here and there. I think we are due for a correction but not loading the boat that direction outside of my metals.miners and bond plays
11:50 am Mathew Waterfall : I think the market starts to realize the smoke and mirrors show that has been Trump thus far, and starts to figure out how long it will be before any meaningful tax cuts or anything else to spur the economy
11:51 am Mathew Waterfall : We are also pricing out rate hikes as noted earlier and just overall dealing with a tired extended market
11:52 am Mathew Waterfall : This has kept me from getting long the past month, but market strength has kept me from getting too short. I think the risk is to the downside for at least a 5% move or so
11:52 am Jake R : interesting
11:53 am Jake R : wise advice i think
11:53 am Mathew Waterfall : What I want to see is some selling to the downside, then a bunch of people jump in long only to make a lower high. That’s ideal for a short set up
11:54 am Curtis M : yup
11:55 am OILQ K : shorting next $NVDA pop
11:56 am OILK K : pools in $CBIS
11:56 am Ed D : watching $ADBE for ss
11:57 am Curtis M : whoa the bears are coming out:)
11:59 am seth m : Curt I don’t know where u found banka but good add lol 🙂
11:59 am seth m : 9 our of 10 of you guys in this room are pro
11:59 am seth m : not like most rooms i been in
12:00 pm OILQ K : curts style seth
12:01 pm OILQ K : $AAOI buyers
12:02 pm Jake R : caught the $XLU move looking for more
12:02 pm Jake R : on the swing last 2 weeks:) not intra
12:03 pm Jake R : watching YEN here
12:03 pm OILK K : $ATEC set for a bounce
12:04 pm OILK K : NQ action
12:05 pm Taylor Y : soooo $TSLA mathew
12:05 pm Taylor Y : possible good entry point?
12:05 pm banka tronic : $CEMP sideways p/a price action below VWAP looks like shorts really want it to crack
12:05 pm Mathew Waterfall : I don’t trade $tsla often but hate the company long term
12:05 pm Sandy S : shorts out to play
12:05 pm Mathew Waterfall : Thinking short?
12:06 pm Taylor Y : long
12:06 pm Taylor Y : oversold?
12:06 pm Mathew Waterfall : Nope. also MACD bearish cross and 9/15 going to cross soon
12:06 pm sandeep a : $DLTR call buyers heavy
12:07 pm Taylor Y : ok thanks I’ll revisit:)
12:07 pm sandeep a : like $RH action today
12:07 pm Mathew Waterfall : You could use yesterdays bar as a quide and put a stop if it breaks back below it, I would be more comfortable with a 2 day range
12:07 pm Taylor Y : yes better idea there
12:08 pm Mathew Waterfall : I just don’t like the post earnings action and that they might need another funding raise. Such a manipulated stock though
12:08 pm Taylor Y : i like the clan part of the thesis
12:08 pm Taylor Y : so i trade it
12:08 pm Taylor Y : die hards
12:09 pm Mathew Waterfall : You’re not wrong. Cult stock with very high insider ownership
12:09 pm sandeep a : watch $DLTH here
12:09 pm Taylor Y : ya
12:09 pm Mathew Waterfall : I say 215’s before 300’s
12:09 pm Taylor Y : ya i c that
12:10 pm sandeep a : retail action serious too
12:10 pm Mathew Waterfall : Hard to tell if that retail is shorts or what. Probably a squeeze in $RH and $JWN
12:11 pm sandeep a : $EYEG on the move
12:18 pm banka tronic : I’ll tell everyone right now that I am not pro. Have some good calls but am here to learn & add what bits I find as chart/pattern truth . Eatting humble pie diet everyday for trading health lol 😉
12:21 pm Mathew Waterfall : The learning never stops and the market will always find a way to humble you. It seems the losses stick out more than the wins but that’s not always a bad thing
12:22 pm Flash G : agree
12:27 pm Mathew Waterfall : There’s a lot of wisdom in thsi room, and I’m not talking about myself. Many have learned the expensive lessons. Best thing about a community like this is we can learn from eachother and short cut so of those painful lessons
12:27 pm Sandy S : so true
12:28 pm Ed D : for sure
12:29 pm OILQ K : looks like a decent set up there curt in $COH the 200 day

01:34 pm johnny r : like the $MSFT idea also as i think market will bounce
01:36 pm Mathew Waterfall : Weak internals. I though after yesterday we would get some action to the upside today. bulls and bears both look unmotivated here so far
01:38 pm OILQ K : $AAQI
01:42 pm MarketMaven M : time to BTD?
01:43 pm Mathew Waterfall : If this doesn’t get bought the close could be ugly. Ugly close today equals coninuation over the weekend
01:46 pm Ed D : Thinking $FIT long if market gets moving if and when
01:47 pm sandeep a : $VUZI HOD
01:48 pm Mathew Waterfall : This $GDX move is garbage. MM’s holding it down seems to me. Explosion on tap next week

03:21 pm Sandy S : crying laughing so hard
03:21 pm Mathew Waterfall : Dollar getting some action here but bonds remain strong. Market this week has been very uninspiring for me. Might have to go back to scalp plays until we get some direction
03:26 pm sandeep a : someone had to say it lol kudos
03:28 pm sandeep a : ok now im rying
03:28 pm sandeep a : crying
03:28 pm Curtis M : lol
03:32 pm Mathew Waterfall : This market seems unbreakable. Why I commented yesterday and today not to get too bearish too quickly. I still hate it here but can’t short it yet. Likely another boring week next week
03:33 pm sandeep a : i love how curt talks like hes old hahaha
03:33 pm sandeep a : Mathew you got wisdom many times your age with market.
03:34 pm Mathew Waterfall : Thanks. Seen these moves many times before but not enough to bypass the frustration apparently lol
03:34 pm Jake R : ha

Welcome to the morning Wall Street trading day session at Compound Trading!

Notes in red text below are new comments entered specifically today.


No algo or swing trading updates today, just arrived back from my trip and no time be market open. Lots of videos being done this weekend that will be posted to YouTube.

Current Holds / Trading Plan:

All small to mid size holds in this order according to sizing – $UWT, $NE, $BSTG, $ONTX, $VRX, $DUST, $ASM, $SSH, $LGCY, $TRCH, $ESEA.

$NE Noble Is my newest position and I think it went up about 6% on Thursday – haven’t had a moment to check.

$DUST I will close for a loss if Gold holds 1260 – sucks, but it was a relatively small position (to portfolio size) but I didn’t follow the golden rule… when a trade goes against your plan cut fast and I didn’t so I will likely pay the price. And I guess what has become the second golden rule… listen to the algos… they haven’t been wrong yet – so yes, I didn’t listen to my own invention ROSIE the Gold Algo (give Rosie a little plug there she deserves it lol). Embarrassing, especially because ROSIE nailed the bottom many weeks in advance of the bottom – all I had to do was listen and boom new house. Sad.

As per previous $CBMX I am now out for huge gains.

As noted before I may exit $VRX and $UWT.

Market Outlook / Trading Plan:

Yesterday I posted $NE Noble Chart on watchlist on morning premarket and it was up 6% or so yesterday last I looked – hope ya banked on it! I got a few thank you’s from our Swing Trading side cause they had it on their morning Swing Trading updates from me also.

$NE, Trading Plan, Swing Trade

$NE Swing long 6.95 average for a 9.00 upside target.

Morning Momo / News and Social Bits From Around the Internet:

If you are new to our trading service you should review recent blog posts, our YouTube Channel and at minimum our algorithm Twitter feeds because they do tell a story in terms of the market and how the inflections of the market determine our day to day trading. You will notice the algorithmic modelling has been undeniably accurate with many time-frames (intra-day, weeks and months out) so I myself have learned to respect their math (they have taken me from a 60% hit rate to 80% in my trading – all publicly posted live trades).

The algorithm Twitter feeds can be found here:$WTI (@EPICtheAlgo), $VIX (@VexatiousVIX), $SPY (@FREEDOMtheAlgo), $GLD (@ROSIEtheAlgo), $SLV (@SuperNovaAlgo), $DXY (@DXYUSD_Index). . Our lead trader Twitter feed is here @curtmelonopoly, lead developer @hundalSHS, and newest trader @quadzilla_jr.

Momentum Stocks (Market Open and Intra-Day):

I do trade morning momo stocks, but I do avoid risk – so often I avoid the first 30 minutes (gap and go) and trade momentum stocks later in the day after the wash-out looking for a snap-back. Just prior to open and shortly after open I post momentum stocks to the trade chat room (and Twitter and Stocktwits if I have time).

Some of my Favorite Set-Ups:

(1) Momentum Stock Wash-Outs for Snap Back, (2) Bad News Wash-outs on Stocks with High Institutional Ownership, (3) Getting on the Right Side of a Trend Change and scaling in my position and (4) Our Algorithm Set-Ups.

The momentum stocks (from previous days and morning trade) I continue to watch through the day for indicators that allow a trade.

Morning Stock Watch-Lists for my Favorite Set-Ups:

(1) Pre-Market Gainers Watch-List: Gainers:  $CEMP, $AXDX, $RH, $TST $OLED $AAOI $NAK $GEVO $TVIX $UVXY $PSO $JNUG $PLUG $NUGT $INCY $AUY $UGAZ

I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

(2) Pre-market Decliners Watch-List:  I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

(3) Other Watch-List:

(4) Regular Algo Charting Watch-List: Gold $GC_F $GLD, Miners $GDX ($NUGT, $DUST, $JDST, $JNUG), Silver $SLV $SI_F ($USLV, $DSLV), Crude Oil FX: $USOIL $WTI ($UWTI, $DWTI, $USO, $UCO, $CL_F, $UWT, $DWT), Natural Gas $NG_F ($UGAZ, $DGAZ), S & P 500 $SPY $ES_F ($SPXL, $SPXS), US Dollar Index $DXY ($UUP), Volatility $VIX ($TVIX, $UVXY, $XIV)

(5) Upgrades:  as time allows I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

(6) Downgrades: as time allows I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

Stay tuned in Stock Chat Room for more pre-market stocks on watch.


For new readers, a review of our unlocked posts on our blog would help you get in to the story we are following with the securities listed in this newsletter.

Free scanners to find momentum stocks that you can easily review charts of for indicators that bring probability of your trade being successful up considerably. These are not useful for first 30 minute market open gap and go type plays (you need a good momentum scanner, level 2, and best to have hot-keys for the first 30 mins of gap and go trading)… but are very useful for intra day scalping and swing trading (start with trending stocks and then look at indicators intra for simple set-ups – study scan study scan study scan).

Feature Post: There is a feature blog post at this link, “Why our Stock Algorithms are Different than Most“. If you are using our algorithms or charting it is a must read.

Overview Perspective & Review of Chat Room, Algo Calls, Trades and Alerts:

$MRNS was one momo play I had with small gain and $SSH with a wash. Later in day I had four $UVXY snipes that worked near perfect at 3000 shares each and 10 – 12 cents sniped on each.

Mathew and the team had a number of successful long and short trades – impressive group in this room. Talent base for any budding trader to learn from. I’m learning from them.

Momentum Stocks Today:

Momentum stocks were a mixed bunch and there wasn’t anything real noteworthy.



Looking Forward:

Per yesterday (and days prior):

I need to exit $DUST and entered it and held because I was convinced USD/JPY would (at minimum) do a major spike up to end the rally – but not so lucky (yet). $CBMX and $JUNO are holds in to spring if necessary – that was the worst case plan anyway.

We are looking to volatility, bonds, metals and possibly bio at this point short / mid term – but the market will let us know.

The market has a tonne of inflection points now, Silver Gold and Miner’s woke up some today so things should get interesting soon with our algos that you can find here:

The algorithm Twitter feeds can be found here: $WTI (@EPICtheAlgo), $VIX (@VexatiousVIX), $SPY (@FREEDOMtheAlgo), $GLD (@ROSIEtheAlgo), $SLV (@SuperNovaAlgo), $DXY (@DXYUSD_Index).

We are currently processing the reset calls for all algos for Q1 2017 over Christmas season because the have all now completed their calls from Q3 and Q3 2016 with 90% or better accuracy. All calls fully documented. 2017 Charting to be released this weekend!

Stock Chat-room Trading Transcript:

Miscellaneous chatter may be removed.

09:12 am Mathew Waterfall : Looking for a pullback in the miners today to reload likely on $NUGT. Only real trade I’m looking for. Volume should be light making early morning moves muted
09:15 am Mathew Waterfall : While American investors and traders were sleeping, the combination of a rush of computer-generated orders and low liquidity prompted a 1.6 percent spike in the euro.Coinciding with the start of the Asian trading day, the euro was trading just below $1.05 but quickly soared as high as $1.0653 , which forced dealers to cover positions at losses.According to Bloomberg , the euro wasn’t the only major currency to exhibit a sudden move. The Swiss frank similarly spiked higher by 1.6 percent against the dollar and the Japanese yen gained 0.4 percent at the same time.Within an hour the currencies mostly pared their gains. The euro was higher by around 0.5 percent ahead of Friday’s U.S. stock market open. At the same time the Swiss franc was higher by 0.4 percent and the yen erased all of its gains and was lower by 0.3 percent.The euro/U.S. dollar is the most traded currency pair but the mini-flash crash isn’t necessarily reason for concern.Shigeki Yoshitoshi, head of Japan foreign-exc
