Compound Trading Friday May 19, 2017 Review of Chat Room Day Trading, Swing Trading, Algorithm Charting, Videos and Live Alerts. $DYN, $CALA, $GLYC, $EXP, $USOIL, $WTIC – $LIGA, $ONTX, $ASM, $SSH, $LGCY, $TRCH, $ESEA, $MGTI etc …

Intro:

Compound Trading is a trading group active in day trading, swing trading and algorithmic model charting (black box).

Time stamped entries (in permanent archive) copied to this blog are direct live log chat from chat trade room as they occurred (random chat not applicable is deleted from transcript below but raw video footage is as it occurred – uncut). Chat trade room is recorded daily for trade archive (embedded below and available on our YouTube channel).

In addition to chat, this trade-room has live voice broadcast (that covers in detail what indicators we are looking for in and out off each trade. Typically at market open and for chart review during lunch hour at minimum) and has live chart screen sharing right from our monitors. At times guest traders and associate traders will screen share charting and/or voice broadcast.

EVERY CALL WE MAKE, EVERY PUBLIC INTERACTION, REPRESENTATION OF TRADE (ON EVERY VENUE) IS VIDEO RECORDED (TRADING ROOM), ON SOCIAL MEDIA OR ON BLOG / WEBSITE TIME-STAMPED FOR PERMANENT RECORD AND ABSOLUTE TRANSPARENCY. PLEASE ALSO REFER TO OUR PUBLIC DISCLOSURE https://compoundtrading.com/disclosure-disclaimer/ .

Complete $SPY S&P 500 Algorithm Rolls-Out this Week. A New Milestone at Compound Trading. #premarket $ES_F $SPXL $SPXS

Update: We are on schedule here and the complete model will be assembled his weekend and released Sunday night for next week. Then I think Gold is next (it will take less than two weeks to publish it in whole as the math is complete on it also. Actually the math is complete and tested on five of six of the algorithms so they will all be published in whole very shortly now). $SPY will be getting it’s own 24 hour trading room also – not sure when, but $SPY and Gold will get their own 24 hour trading rooms like EPIC sometime before end of 2017.

Learn How to Trade Stocks (Build a Small Account) Following my Journey. Part 5 “Freedom Traders” Series.

Update: Just for those that have asked, the near future posts coming for Freedom Traders series focuses on trading disciplines and technical set-ups that many have asked for. I’m actually going to try and write a book this Christmas consolidating it all (see mid day chart reviews on our YouTube channel and that will give you some insight as to direction – although the series will cover so much more). At minimum we’ll consolidate it in to a training seminar series with video set etc to make it easy for new traders and more experienced alike I suppose to digest it all.

Market Day, Chat Room Trades and Personal Trades:

I was up on the second day momo on $GLYC just over 600.00 on the day and took a long position in $CALA at end of day. It was one of the quieter days we’ve had in the trading room in a long time. I was traveling after market open and after I spoke to a lot of our traders they reported either doing swing trade management and charting for next week or simply taking a long weekend and wrapped it up early on Friday.

Live Trading Chat Room Video Raw Footage and Transcript:

Two Part video (Part 1 embed is below and go to Compound Trading Youtube channel for Part 2 of live feed from day and other charting from the day).

Compound Trading Stock Chat-room Transcript:

Please note: Miscellaneous chatter removed from transcript and some discussions I will add notes with information I’ve gleaned in discussions online with traders on DM etc also for further explanation (noted with *). Most days at 9:30 ET market open there is moderator live broadcast explaining trades and at times during the day there is also live broadcast market updates and trade set-up explanations (so you have to scroll through video feed to market open etc to catch live broadcast portions – in future we will note in in transcript when we are on the mic so viewers can correlate time with transcript with video feed when reviewing trades). 

Note: We are testing a new trading room. This particular room does not list a time stamp with each chat entry – we are working on a fix. Also, please note, sometimes pieces of the transcript are missing (also something we are working on). But the video is raw and complete.

Curt M_1: Morning. Today I am traveling again from approx. 11:00 AM and on. So midday chart review will not be possible but I will be in room all day. As I travel and switch between wifi locations the charting may go down but it will be temporary. I will re-enter room on each occasion. Expected to be in office all day but no such luck:)

Market Outlook :

Watch those large and mega caps – when they stall things could change. And don’t forget our $SPY algo warned about recent highs.

Note to all of the FANG critics: Having AAPL lead the advance is NOT a bad thing. If AAPL were lagging, THAT would be bad.

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 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).

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 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 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: $DYN 22%, $PTXP 19% $ARNA 15% $BRZU $ADSK $MCK $GLYC $SMRT $TNXP $DE $SORL $BEDU $PBR.A $CNHI $UWT $PBR $HMY $USLV  I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

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).
