Trading Plan / Watch Lists. Morning Momentum / Gaps / News / PR / IPO / SEC Filings / Earnings Stocks on Watch: 

Yesterday I had a couple flats, but the trade plan was solid, just didn’t follow them through with enough room (Thursday and Friday day-trading not my favorite and I’m just getting back in saddle).

Hoping the oil pressure has been baked in to price to trade out of a pressured 2/10 size futures trade.

It is Friday. Do not try to make your week up today.

Per yesterday:

Thurs through Sunday will be getting my set-ups in order so it will likely be fairly quiet for me. There are some set-ups now, but it is end of week but I wanted to start live today to get set for Monday (so really I’ll be running a 30 day challenge starting Monday), anyway… you get the idea.

Also watching $CLDR range to targets sent out, $TSLA possible bounce to targets sent out, $CRON trading range and others of course that I’ll alert as we go.

Bitcoin $BTC has been hammered with manipulation lately so I’m sitting tight, trading small ranges.

Pot stocks $TLRY $CGC $CRON I am working on set-ups for pull backs in to next week.

And of course eyes on $VIX time-cycle smoldering now (see previous posts).

First red day in a long while in oil. Ended day with a flurry of trades in oil for a small cut. But took a size-able loss on the earlier sell-off. Will take 6 disciplined intra-day snipe trades to back-fill that day. Cut your losers fast or they’ll get you.

If you are new to our trading service you should review recent blog posts, the Compound Trading 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 the math (they have taken me from a 60% hit rate to 80%+ all publicly posted live trade alerts).

Momentum Stocks (Market Open and Intra-Day):

I do trade morning momo stocks, but I do avoid much of the day trading risk (preferring to daytrade only what is structurally set-up also on the swing trade side and to my advantage in the algorithmic model charting). I often avoid the first 30 minutes (gap and go) and trade momentum stocks or structured (per explanation in previous sentence) stocks later in day after a wash-out looking for a snap-back trade that can possibly also become a strong swing or longer term trade that I can leg in to. 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 Intra-day Trading 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 Charting Model Set-Ups.

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

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).

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.



New Service Options: We now also offer a stand-alone trading room option now (vs. bundle w/ trading room, premarket newsletter and alerts) at 59.00.

New Service Options: EPIC the Oil Algo now has an Oil Report only option (vs. bundle w/ 24 hr trading room launching early 2017) at 199.00.

New Service Options: Entry-Level trader one-on-one trade coaching and entry-level trade academy options now available in addition to intermediate / advanced trading academy and coaching.

Feature Post: There is a new 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.

Room Settings: We are testing fault settings for multiple trading rooms in 2017 (main room, momentum, options, swing, commodities, etc). We can have groups in different rooms all seeing same screen and announcements / broadcast – if you’re moved don’t sweat it – it won’t affect your experience.

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

Today was very calm. Some trades in the group. For me quiet – study day. We had rotation in to small bio pharma that I missed, some movement in small cap metal equities and the likes of $NVDA, $TSLA, $NFLX in action.

Personal Trades / Lessons:

No trades. I did miss the oil move (and if you know me at all you know that is rare) but the action was not typical oil trade action. I have become so tuned in to the oil trade (easily with a 95% win rate specific to oil related trades) that when oil is trading “off” its normal pattern I can miss a move like today. The holiday I am convinced is responsible for it trading outside of its normal algorithmic model. As a trade (with-out the algo) I should have caught the move though.

We did see some movement in $GDX and $GLD and some of the small caps so those are on high watch with me for tomorrow.



Looking Forward:

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.

01:32 pm Curtis M : Logic tells me small cap mineral companies going t o start popping at turn of the year here
01:34 pm Mathew Waterfall : I agree they should see action if market stays strong. Watching steel and copper to try to get a tell for what is going to happen here
01:34 pm Curtis M : Gold miners and Silver likely to pop pre inaugaration
01:35 pm Curtis M : Gold gets up over that green arrow has lots of room from an algo model perspective

03:28 pm Curtis M : Lots of trades today – what can we help you with?
03:29 pm todd m : do u trade in the am mainly
03:29 pm todd m : got here the last hour
03:29 pm todd m : havent seen anything
03:29 pm Mathew Waterfall : On days like today the AM sees the volume. post lunch things have been quiet
03:30 pm Curtis M : Our logs are posted to our blog daily – take a look at normal day Todd – we trade
03:30 pm Curtis M : All day every day lol
03:30 pm todd m : what is your strategy
03:30 pm todd m : how do u know where to long and short
03:32 pm Curtis M : Not the right venue for that – maybe read up on our webste / blog first and email us, DM us, or private message us – this is for alerts
03:37 pm Curtis M : $BCEI is 1 in about 20 I didn’t trust today ugh
03:37 pm Sammy T : $BCEI will still run in morning IMO
03:39 pm Mathew Waterfall : Hit my 50% on the day target lol
03:39 pm Sammy T : lol
03:41 pm Carol B : Curt this is likely the turn $GOLD $GDX
03:41 pm Curtis M : Feels like it
03:42 pm Curtis M : Just want to see USDJPY confirm
03:42 pm Curtis M : And see $GOLD up pver that quad res
03:44 pm Curtis M : $NAK 29% and momo directed
03:46 pm Curtis M : Whats your gut say matt on $GLD $GDX turn?
03:48 pm Mathew Waterfall : My gut says this is way oversold and should see some action here
03:48 pm Mathew Waterfall : You can’t deny that chart of $GDX looks horrible though. It needs to get out of the downtrend and get some lift before I jump in
03:48 pm MarketMaven M : ya 10 – 4
03:49 pm Mathew Waterfall : Fold $GLD and /GC I wouldn’t be a buyer until the BOJ stops with whatever the hell they are doing over there and Abe gets put in check
03:49 pm Curtis M : agree
03:49 pm Mathew Waterfall : That might be a while, maybe shortly after the election for Trump to lay the smack down, or it might come sooner if things get sideways in China ala 2016
03:50 pm Curtis M : Abe is nuts
03:50 pm Mathew Waterfall : Totally crazy
03:50 pm Mathew Waterfall : It’s also not like $GLD and Gold had a bad year though, we have to remember that even now after the recent sell off it’s up YUGE on the year
03:51 pm Mathew Waterfall : $GDX had a low of 12.4 last Jan. Even right under 20 that’s still a nice year
03:51 pm Mathew Waterfall : Not 31 like the summer high, but nothing to shake a stick at
03:52 pm Curtis M : ya
03:53 pm Sammy T : $NAK NA NAK didnt fn f#sjk
03:53 pm Sammy T : Parabolic
03:53 pm Mathew Waterfall : For me to go in heavy like I said earlier I want to see /GC aka gold futures above 1200 and the dollar yen back on the downswing. Until then I’m just going in light with maybe miners
03:53 pm Michael P : Ya missed it here too
03:54 pm Curtis M : Makes sense
03:54 pm Mathew Waterfall : Plenty of other opportunity without the nonsense of Abe and the BOJ having a direct influence so I’ll choose the easier avenues for now. If I miss some of the move that’s fine with me
03:55 pm Curtis M : Ya – I am hoping for $NAK like replays all week
03:55 pm Mathew Waterfall : I think we are rotating into some bios so they should be plenty
03:56 pm Mathew Waterfall : I’m holding $IPCI, $DNAI, $ATRS and $AMPE
03:56 pm Curtis M : y and the bios
03:56 pm Mathew Waterfall : all are good break out candidates with nice charts to add to the rotational and short squeeze effects
03:56 pm Mathew Waterfall : $BRBP small as well
03:57 pm Mathew Waterfall : o and $OPXA. So yea I’m thinking these plays continue lol
03:57 pm MarketMaven M : $DNAI Matt could be parabolic ths week and $IPCI I like a lot and yes $OPXA likely best one
03:58 pm Curtis M : Looking at $DWT
03:58 pm Curtis M : Likely wont tho – I think I’ll reset for morning and hammer down if it all sets up similar to today
04:00 pm Mathew Waterfall : $DRAM HOD into the close. Another ripper for tomorrow
04:01 pm Curtis M : Have a great night folks!
04:01 pm John M : catchya all
04:01 pm Mathew Waterfall : Good night all. See ya in the AM for more small cap action
04:02 pm Drew M : peace yo
