Review of my Chat Room Stock Day Trades, Algorithm Charting Calls and Alerts for Tuesday Dec 20 – $CNAT, $FRED, $GLF, $AKBA, $GALT, $JUNO, $CBMX, $UWT, $SPY, $GLD, $GDX, $USDJPY, $DXY, $USOIL, $WTIC, $SLV, VIX, $NG_F and more.


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.



Notice: 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.

Notice: 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.


Primary Lessons That May Help You With Your Trades:

The $UWT (crude oil trade) I was in was about trusting the algorithm @EPICtheAlgo (which took me about 6 months to fully trust). I would be a lot further ahead has I just trusted the math process earlier. But I did this time – and I went big and we won.

Looking Forward:

The market has a tonne of inflection points now 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 in writing, called in advance and fully documented.

12:14 pm Mathew Waterfall : Out half $clf Jan13 10c’s at .39 from .24. Keeping other half as I think it goes higher, just not trustin grally in steel a whole lot so playing tight and ringing the cash register

12:45 pm Mathew Waterfall : *puts
01:01 pm Mathew Waterfall : Dr J talking his book as always just spat out $CLF. Might be rocket fuel to my target over next day or so

01:31 pm Darni T : $CNAT looks like rocket time
01:32 pm Mathew Waterfall : I usually try to let moves like that play out for a day or so. The close is always inportant to me to see if it dumps with all of the profit taking
01:33 pm Mathew Waterfall : Of course I haven’t looked at short interest which can fuel a rally big time from here in a pro gap type move
01:35 pm Mathew Waterfall : Rolled rest of my $CLF Jan calls into 12’s. Big jump yes but I wanted to take out profits. Basically 2 bagger right here at .47 from .24 entry. .33 credit to roll to 12’s
01:44 pm Curtis M : $CLF denying takeover
01:45 pm Mathew Waterfall : Yepp good exit on that one. Held 50 on the 5′ though so still not horrible. $AKS and $X going so this should remain strong

02:40 pm Curtis M : haha
02:50 pm Mathew Waterfall : $PI just won’t stop today. Flying
02:51 pm Darni T : Was just going to say that. HOD
02:52 pm Curtis M : People calling bottom in Gold and Miners all over social
02:52 pm Mathew Waterfall : Wanted to buy a dip around the 50 on the 5′ for a quick play and it didn’t even get there. I’m not chasing at this point but it looks super strong
02:52 pm Mathew Waterfall : Come on $NUGT! Get me some of the good stuff
02:53 pm Mathew Waterfall : But if course if people are tlaking abot itthat likely means we have another flush before the real move
02:53 pm Curtis M : ugh
02:58 pm jetcom b : done – see you gus tom

03:09 pm OILQ K : $EVOK consistent up

03:36 pm Josh S : I read some of that chatterr on StockTwits.. did those people even read the site?
03:37 pm Mathew Waterfall : Stocktwits is easily 99% people who have no clue what they are tlaking about.
03:38 pm Mathew Waterfall : $SHAK puking continues. 38 outs now .825 from .40. I’ll probably step off the rollercoaster here
03:38 pm Mathew Waterfall : *puts. I can’t type that word today for some reason
03:39 pm Darni T : agreed
03:41 pm Mathew Waterfall : There’s a ton of noise on stocktwits, twitter, whatever. Some is helpful, but a lot of it is either distracting or straight up misinformation
03:42 pm Mathew Waterfall : I know traders who will post the opposite of what they are doing on purpose. I’m not sure what they think that they get out of that strategy but it definately goes on
03:42 pm Mathew Waterfall : Focus on your own strategy and use the rest for laughs unless it’s coming from a verified source
03:43 pm Darni T : omg
03:43 pm Mathew Waterfall : We’re lucky with a room like this that we can share and learn. On twitter and others that’s not always the case
03:43 pm Josh S : I just thought it was interesting, because their trading room also purported to be “crowd sourced”..
03:44 pm Josh S : anyway you’re right, no business doing trading if a person can’t do their own research
03:44 pm Mathew Waterfall : They probably also advertise using supercars trying to lure you into to sme BS service
03:45 pm Curtis M : aesomw
03:45 pm Curtis M : awesome
03:45 pm Mathew Waterfall : I’m not saying you can’t use others for help, this room is a great example of that. But when you’re out filtering through unreliable advice it needs to be taken with a giant grain of salt
03:47 pm Curtis M : That news knocked algos off with EPIC lol
03:48 pm Mathew Waterfall : haha
03:48 pm Curtis M : It was techically perfect 🙂
03:52 pm Mathew Waterfall : MOC 30 for sale. These numbers have been bouncing around leaning a bit to the sell side. Not much of a trend but it looks like fin heavy on the sell side
03:52 pm Curtis M : hmm
03:53 pm Mathew Waterfall : Saw some put buying there in the afternoon as well. GS mostly for whatever reason
03:54 pm Curtis M : interesting
03:54 pm Mathew Waterfall : Watching $GPRO and $TWLO for possible end of year short squeezes/short covering rallies
03:55 pm Mathew Waterfall : $TWLO just hit with a $45 price target
04:00 pm Mathew Waterfall : Have a good afternoon/evening. Catch ya in the AM
04:00 pm OILQ K : wa
04:01 pm Curtis M : catcha
