Swing Trading Strategies, Alerts, Charts, News. August 22, 2019…

Below are Swing Trade Set-Ups Currently On Watch $ROKU, $ETSY, $MCD, $QQQ, $VIX, $X, $TEUM, $ARWR, $AU, $GC_F…

Earnings Season Swing Trade Positions Reporting Special Notes:

This report was written earlier in premarket but due to internet work crew the distribution was delayed until now.

Aug 22 – On Aug 19 we entered $QQQ long in low 187s, it hit 189.23 yesterday and we have a 197s price target in to Sept 9 week. On the 16th we added to the Gold short (2nd position) 1512.29 and it is trading at time of writing 1497.90. On August 12 we entered long $OSTK and got quickly stopped for a 4% loss on a starter position on some CEO news that sent the stock tumbling, one of our few losses lately. The $TEUM trade went well 2.60 – 3.60 and we’re looking at other entries soon. $MRO swing trade set-up has been flat thus far (post alert). The VIX time cycle has been spot on and we’ll be looking for longs in to the week of Sept 9 in advance of Oct 21 week time cycle peak. The $AU and $ARWR trades were / are outstanding performers and we continue to work with / have on watch because both should be considerable trades again soon. $AU long on other side of Sept 9 going in to Oct 21 and $ARWR adds to long position at key support areas. $DXY we are still watching for a short cycle, $SPY we didn’t long in to Sept 9 and chose $QQQ instead, $BTC we are watching for a possible bullish run on the other side of Sept 9 week. Other considerations are below.

Over the next few weeks the number of set ups to be sent out is expected to increase because of the Sept 9 and Oct 21 time cycle inflections nearing.

Per recent;

July 31 – We entered a new swing trade yesterday in TESLA that is doing excellent, closed the AMD swing trade prior to earnings which was a great call because it lost a lot of value after earnings were posted after market, are trading the Crude Oil move that seen a huge gain after the swing trade alert was issued and today we look at National Oilwell Varco, Trex and Chegg after they had larger than normal earnings price moves. 

We’re also working on time cycle trades for SPY, VIX, Gold, Silver, DXY, BTC and more than we will report on soon.

Per recent;

July 22 – Below are some equities in focus this week with earnings, the follow- up reports on deck deal with other earnings focus equities and time cycles for the indices and specific instruments we focus on (GOLD, SILVER, VIX, SPY, OIL, US DOLLAR, BITCOIN).

Per recent;

Over the coming days we will be re-visiting all recent swing trade set-ups, alerts and trades in progress to reconcile the trades in advance of earnings and prepare for the new on other side of each new set up from earnings reports. This will involve a significant number of posts, trade alerts, mid day reviews in the trading room and videos that our members will receive a copy of.

Executing your swing trading strategy with our charting reports and live alerts involves using the key support and resistance areas of the charting, time cycle peaks, trajectory of trade and conventional indicators such as MACD cross-over and Moving Averages.

Alerts are not always issued at each add or trim to positions because that is simply not possible so you do have to manage your trade.

In many instances a clear swing trade strategy is laid out in the newsletter and/or videos so that you can manage the swing trade according to your risk threshold and account size.

If you struggle to establish a trading strategy with the information provided on our reporting, videos and alerts then some trade coaching is recommended to get you started.

Market Outlook, Market News and Social Bits From Around the Internet:

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).

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.

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

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).

Premarket Session: 

$XGTI Premarket up 18%

Market Day, Chat Room Trades and Personal Trades:

Traded $XGTI for a tiny papercut -150.00 and an OTC for a 50.00 paperwork. -200.00 on the day (not counting my swings from the swing trading side that had a huge day). Also reviewed $XGTI, $DXPE, $NATR, $WB, $ETSY in the mid day chart review but I was traveling (not using my usual computer) and a glitch caused the session not to record (ugh).

$ETSY Over 200 MA

$WB at Fib resistance

$NATR tagged 200 MA resistance perfect in intraday trade.

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.
