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.
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/ .
Overview Perspective & Review of Markets, Chat Room, Algo Calls, Trades and Alerts:
$ZAIS, $GALT, $PHMD, $RELV, $CYNO, $LPTH were the big movers Tuesday. I was in $GALT ended flat but many of the members in premarket and the open hit the momentum stocks (got a lot of DM messages, it was active).
The room was quieter than normal and most members I spoke to were studying and reconciling accounts / looking over trade plans etc.
I spoke to members that were in most of the plays $ZAIS, $GALT, $PHMD, $RELV, $CYNO, $LPTH and most didn’t get chopped up and were on winning side if they were in them, good group of traders in the room and the newer traders continue to share there appreciation for the wisdom found in there. So all good!
Natural gas we were all over in the morning also, I didn’t take a trade but many in our room did catch $UGAZ spike and all I spoke to sold in to the spike and some re-bought this morning or are again.
Momentum / Note-able Stocks Today (via FinViz):
Stocks, ETN’s, ETF’s I am Holding:
I am holding (in order of sizing – all moderately small to small sizing) $UWT, $ONTX, $DUST, $VRX, $CBMX, $JUNO, $TRCH, $LGCY, $SSH, $ASM
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.
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. Epic our oil algorithm Tuesday 4:30 target area hit (not perfect to the cent and second but trade was in target area).
Our swing trading side continues to outperform all my expectations for 2017 (you can find the most recent unlocked 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.
US Dollar $DXY $USDJPY $UUP:
$DXY US Dollar is threatening to the trend reversal side, but not confirmed yet.
Gold $GLD $XAUUSD / Gold Miner’s $GDX:
Gold and Miner’s are both at what we consider key resistance.
Silver is at what consider key resistance area also.
Crude Oil $USOIL $WTI:
Crude oil in premarket touched key support – this could get interesting if it loses support. There are a few other supports just under are of trade, but not much. Multi week trade range support for example is just under current area of trade.
The target area that hit on Tuesday is chart below.
Volatility continues its flat line.
$SPY S&P 500:
$SPY continues the break-out. Trade the Fibs and buy the dip until you can’t. Respect stops.
It seems to be near a low IMO.
As noted above, the low float micros and small cap issues continue in momo.
As noted above, we have literally sent one out of the park after another. Continues to look good forward.

10:39 am Mathew Waterfall : TICKs trending to the downside here and breadth negative and going more so. Could see some fun if we can get a nice flsuh on /es
10:40 am Nate A : $BASI 53%
10:47 am Nate A : $APOP halt
10:48 am Carol B : wow
10:49 am Sandra Q : news?
10:54 am Mathew Waterfall : quick break back in a bit
11:11 am Sandra Q : dollar double top?
11:26 am Mathew Waterfall : Back. Nothing too crazy happening other than some big $JNUG sweepers hitting the tape. I’m looking for the dollar to be building out the right shoulder here of the H&S pattern that I’ve been tlaking about for the last month and a half or so. $DXY >102 invalidates that
11:36 am Mathew Waterfall : In a bit more $ASM right here. I will trade in and out a portion of this on pops and drops.
11:43 am Mathew Waterfall : Shaping up to be a quiet day for me like I assume it is for the rest of you guys. Looking at some nat gas plays as spurred on by Curts chart review this morning. Probably producers rather that /NG itself or something.Will report back if I open anything
11:54 am Nate A : real quiet
11:54 am Maven’sBrother M : scalping $ZAIS lol
11:57 am Nate A : probs nat gas bottom
11:57 am Eric L : not sure about that yet nate
11:59 am Mathew Waterfall : Calling a bottom in natty will make you lose your mind as far as I’m concerned. It very well may be, but that thing trades all over
12:01 pm Mathew Waterfall : Thinking about cutting this $UAA trade. Up about a buck a share but it’s just chopping around and I have no patience for that. Stop still right under todays LOD as mentioned yesterday as LOD is abot the same. If it can’t get into the gap in a hurry Im out and on to other things
12:10 pm Curtis M : sorry was on a call
12:10 pm Nate A : we’re good l
12:11 pm Curtis M : theres what i was worried about with nat gas
12:11 pm Maven’sBrother M : whats your target curt?
12:12 pm Curtis M : 2.70 sh
12:13 pm Eric L : $BLPH 49% great call
12:29 pm Nate A : $ZAIS that 50 ma on that 1 nice
12:29 pm Nate A : 150% prob
12:50 pm Maven’sBrother M : suuuppper boring out there
12:51 pm Curtis M : yellen
12:51 pm Curtis M : messes with markets
12:54 pm Mathew Waterfall : I hate granny Yellen with a passion
12:55 pm Sandra Q : $TVIX -7% would have guessed the opposite
12:56 pm Sandra Q : but no vol
01:00 pm Mathew Waterfall : We have run out of sellers lol. F it, I’m calling this a toppy market. The fundementals are garbage IMO right here. Don’t trade off of this, but I’m likely starting short before too long. This no volitility is driving me crazy
01:17 pm Sandra Q : $NAK halt
01:28 pm Mathew Waterfall : Slow day on the options flow outside of a few names. Just checked the metals/miners and still most of the flow coming in bullish
01:30 pm Mathew Waterfall : $SWN making some progress on natty strength as is $CHK. That’s where I’ll be looking most likely
01:48 pm John M : i get the idea curt aint sold on metal run or dxy dropping
01:48 pm Curtis M : agnostic
01:49 pm Mathew Waterfall : I’m not sold on it either until it breaks this range
01:49 pm Sandra Q : 🙂
01:49 pm Mathew Waterfall : At this point espeically on this dump today it offered another opp to play the bottom of said range for a move higher
01:49 pm Mathew Waterfall : We’ll see if the metals can get up and over the resistance
01:51 pm Mathew Waterfall : From the twit stream for you natty players: #natgas…..individual 2017 contracts have another $.05-$.12 cents lower to go to fill the Nov. gap. Would be ‘nice and tidy’ if they did..
01:52 pm Sandra Q : nice
01:52 pm Curtis M : 12 c gives it 2.76 sh close to my 2.70 ish
01:53 pm Curtis M : Mine soft target tho – we don’t have the math locked at all
01:53 pm Mathew Waterfall : Which is close ish to that “double bottom” in the 2.50’s. Lots of levels down there
01:54 pm Mathew Waterfall : With something like natty that weather plays such a large role in, I would be surprised if the math was as accurate as oil or gold etc
01:54 pm Curtis M : can’t find math that works
01:55 pm Curtis M : natty looked so god this morning lol
01:56 pm Mathew Waterfall : It’s a widowmaker trade for sure. I’ve called in the ultimate pain trade before and I don’t think that’s wrong. Why I would rather trade the companies tied to its production
01:57 pm Curtis M : ya
02:06 pm Curtis M : $NAK off halt
02:06 pm cynthia y : 48 MM traded $NAK
02:07 pm Mathew Waterfall : $NAK not looking so hot here. Their PR was basically useless from what I was as well
02:07 pm John M : yup
02:07 pm John M : give us till fri
02:10 pm Mathew Waterfall : lol. It was more like “Hey, we just wanted an excuse to halt to stop the bleeding but yea, we got nothin here”
02:11 pm John M : lol
02:16 pm Curtis M : long some $GALT bored
02:19 pm Mathew Waterfall : Gold vertical. Close eyes and mash the button. This market just feels like people chasing non stop. Crazy
02:20 pm Nate A : Curts email alert not much confidence in that trade lol “bored”
02:20 pm Nate A : Long $GALT daytrade tight small high risk 1.77
02:20 pm Nate A : 🙂
02:20 pm Curtis M : 🙂
02:21 pm Curtis M : I hit it again lol
02:22 pm Curtis M : $NAK got a bounce!
02:23 pm Eric L : $NAK covering
02:27 pm Curtis M : rased my stop o $GALT to 2 cent loss cause it didnt do what i hoped (out flat)
02:27 pm Curtis M : yes hope
02:38 pm Mathew Waterfall : Trailing stop on some of the $JNUG day trade entered earlier. Up about 35 cents a share. Nothing razy entry wasn’t great on it
02:45 pm Nate A : a win a win

02:45 pm Curtis M : $C halt
02:45 pm Curtis M : $CI
03:06 pm Flash G : $IMUC on the move EOD
03:30 pm Mathew Waterfall : Just heard the craziest rumor. Huge prop fund shorting 5k /ES mini’s for every tick higher. That’s crazy
03:30 pm Mathew Waterfall : Doesn’t make sense to me
03:30 pm Nate A : stupid
03:30 pm Maven’sBrother M : sfffff

03:31 pm Mathew Waterfall : If you guys don’t understand why that’s crazyI can break it down but man that blows my mind
03:32 pm Mathew Waterfall : The backstop from any negative action. That’s what I’m after and totally makes sense
03:33 pm Nate A : hope nap was great
03:33 pm NewbieHH O : haha..it was ok
03:34 pm NewbieHH O : $LPTH
