Post Market Wrap Up Trading Day Comments “The World is Opening Up Again”

RE: Post market report with VIDEO covering trade reviews on day trading, swing and oil trading alert feeds, Volatility, Oil, SPY, GOLD, SILVER, BITCOIN, APPLE, TESLA, AMAZON, TWITTER, FACEBOOK, PAGER DUTY, CHEGG, OVX, GOOGLE and more.
My first post market review on cell phone recorded on YouTube, tomorrow I’ll try the camera on my phone sideways and see if I can get a larger field of view, if not maybe I’ll hobble around with my GoPro in future.
I’ve just been shooting these videos on Twitter but I’ll start to post them to Twitter, YouTube Facebook etc. Show folks where I am in my travels while I do a quick Market Wrap Up each day after our day trading session in the trading room. Sorry about the wind.
So it looks like the world is opening up, Florida was looking normal again, busy place now again.
In my trader premarket trading note this morning could see the run up coming on the day so I sent out a second premarket guidance note before market open.
We had the move dialed in and were ready for a great day of daytrading and swing trade positioning and management of booking profits.
We got the bounce today we were looking for, we expected markets Monday to be soft and Tuesday to bounce and we got it.
Swing trade alert feed below shows guidance comments Monday morning toward general intra day outlook;
“General market view – I just surveyed the best 10 traders I know, all agreed on equities – watching only (likely pop Tuesday), I am concerned about possible drop in AMZN symmetry and on oil bullish to 25 – 30, trading 22.23 FX USOIL WTI.”
Oil trade is on a tear, we had alerted to the swing trade and oil trade alerts feed we were expecting the next leg up for 25.00 – 30.00 and it hit 26.62 today (so far) on FX USOIL WTI. API is on deck next here with EIA tomorrow.
Crazy bullish run. We seen a few day trade set-ups today, I got one at regular USA market open and the second set-up alerted to the oil trade alerts feed was a prime set-up.
I wrote an article on the oil day trade set-up (click here) based on a 200 MA buy trigger on the one minute chart, that ended up being the best intra-day buy / continuation point in oil. The price of oil rallied 147 points to a high of day at time of writing 26.62 and looks like it is about to break higher. The article has screen shots of the oil trade alert feed and charting and a step by step how to trade the strategy.
Alert from the oil trade alert premium feed below:
“On the 1 min time frame 25.15 200 MA is attractive test for a crude oil day trade pop up scalp – trading 25.68. #oiltradealerts.”
Apple, Intel, Twitter we’re doing well in on our Swing Trading Alerts platform (members can refer to the charts).
Facebook, Google and Amazon I’ve sat out. I’ve always done well in all three but Amazon has a symmetry issue for a possible sell off in to beginning of September that I don’t like and the Tech leaders have other geo political black swan potential that I outlined in detail on the Swing Trading Alert Premium feed that our subscribers should review.
I may still take trades in $FB $GOOGL $AMZN but any of the tech leaders I will hold only with hard stops, again, the explanation is on the swing trade alert feed.
Gold, Silver, Bitcoin.
The swing trades, alerts and chart models have been running well in Gold, Silver and Bitcoin.
Bitcoin is stronger because of the BTC specific halving event and the 1200.00 cheques from the Fed.
Silver continues to struggle, I’ve explained to members – I think the most recent explanation for this expectation for Silver was on the weekend Swing Trading $STUDY videos, I go in to an explanation there. Silver is on the first of four videos from that $STUDY session.
And Gold is expected to be moderately strong and continue to trade well within the structure chart model that has been on point for many months.
Again, look at weekend $STUDY videos for details, charts and trading plan(s) for Bitcoin, Gold and Silver.
Volatility $VIX $OVX
Volatility is getting close to support / but triggers, we have a plan to accumulate in to the end of August 2020 that the Sunday Swing Trade $STUDY videos review.
A warning toward volatility surprises between here and election. Volatility, tech leaders and the whole market.
Miscellaneous Other Swing Trades.
TESLA I am shorting at key resistance points. This is my current nemesis.
CHEGG has been a payday swing trade over and over, today was quite a run up.
Pager Duty (PD) swing trade has been decent.
TGTX swing trade paid big on my 10% remaining runner today.
Apple (AAPL) had a big day, we continue to do very well with Apple swing trades, the model is very precise that we use.
Daytrading Alert Feed.
Looking to get that new day trading alert feed rocking because I want maxed out Swing Trading positioning for personal best returns in the next two time cycles in the markets in to end of August, through election and thereafter. Basically I want to be able to size in to themes in to the election and the best way to do that is to have the swing trading models all firing also on a daytrading time-frame for the highest possible return on the trades.

Note to our Traders: Weekly Scheduling Notes in Advance of Trading
RE: Update to Previous Email – Sunday Swing Trade $STUDY Webinars, Live Trading Room Broadcasts, Real-Time Swing and Oil Trade Alerts, Oil Machine Trading, Newsletter Reporting.
Well, the time cycle we are in is starting to heat up and this is the time to be awake, this week should see us start to lean in to our swing trade positioning and I expect a very active trading week in crude oil.
Below are some scheduling and development notes for our members / traders.
As a result of the development work we do our small development team is in different countries and I happen to be at the beach void of first world.
When I travel (which is regularly) internet infrastructure has to be prepared and every single time we end up having to re-do what the locals have prepared for us in advance.
In this specific instance I had to change locations for security cautionary reasons due to the Corona lock-down.
I will note also that someday every possibility will be covered off on our internet preparation checklists and nothing will get past us in advance of me arriving to a location, nevertheless once again we are dealing with it.
BUT I am happy to report we have now have a 100% solution at my current location and complete resolution (installed) will be May 10th at the latest and more probably this week. Until then, below is how we will handle our trading services.
Sunday Swing Trade Webinar $STUDY.
I will only do the Weekly Swing Trade Watch List $STUDY by way of newsletter reporting and alert feeds and not live for now (until internet install is complete), working on the current reporting for this weeks trade set-ups on watch now for distribution.
At the end of last week many of the trades and markets started to firm up and themes are starting to develop. As a result the swing trade alerts started to increase in frequency as we neared the end of the week so you can expect this to be a busy week.
Be sure to read the recent swing trade articles and watch the newsletters and alerts flow carefully here.
Soon we will restart Sunday $STUDY webinars live when final internet install is complete.
Live Trading Broadcast Room.
The markets will be active this week so I have no choice but to run with what we have, hopefully they have the install done sooner than later. If we crash in the broadcast room we crash and I will just re-boot every-time.
We don’t have a choice we have to run with it. The time cycle is getting very involved – trades are “in play” and we have to go with it as it is.
The Swing Trading set-ups are starting to get prime and our Oil Trading Machine Trade software is firing.
I will be in the live trading broadcast room during regular market hours and any other time trade becomes active in overnight futures or in pre or post markets.
Jen will be crediting Live Trading Room member accounts for any down-time.
You can expect the crude oil machine trading to be active now that EPIC V3.1.1 black swan and shorting trend updates are complete and it looks as though oil may be getting somewhat structured again after it’s “epic” collapse to negative territory.
The swing trading platform is being coded one set-up at a time as I am updating chart models, with two hundred equities we follow and code this will take time.
All alerts (oil trade alerts and swing trading alerts) will be as normal and will be sent out. Worst scenario we have internet back-up systems, the internet at this point only really affects the live broadcasting in the trading room.
One quick note, very soon I will be taking the swing trade set-ups and moving them down to daytrading time-frames also for intraday positioning as we build larger swing positions in the time cycle trajectory of trade – as such, we will be opening our daytrading alert feed again at that time (within 10 days at most) and swing trade members will get free access to that also.
The swing trade and oil trade newsletter(s) will go out as usual and will actually be more timely and regular now that the Black Swan event is taking less of my time (time that was needed to understand the event to bias the trading going forward).
More specifically you can expect the swing newsletter flow to start prior to Monday premarket and the crude oil newsletter flow to start sometime Monday (I would like to see oil trade in futures prior to determining my bias on crude oil and invest the time in updating all the chart models also).
But the trade alerts will run live for both, if the trade is there, we’re go time.
Remember, if you need anything please email, if we haven’t responded to a previous just hit us again (it can get busy during market hours to say the least).
Peace and best,
Above all, keep your bias in check and remember the ranges can be very, very big in to these time cycles.
Premarket Morning Note
Good morning traders
Bear with us with reporting, there’s a lot of moving parts and we’re exhausted to be honest, it will be nice to get a break for a near day from Friday close to Saturday afternoon haha.
We’re still working with new internet line but have solutions so we’re close, unfortunately only way we can do our development in our work is to be in places where infrastructure requires us to be involved, so it is so.
And the server capacity at Click Meeting and with internet wide is still challenged but areas of the world are opening so this will improve.
COVID has tasked our body limits to say the least, work load is heavy.
Nevertheless, we’re getting there one step at a time.
Now, today is Friday, go easy, we see this inflection and bull most likely running next week, but you have to be in the right themes. I promise you we will have continued reporting out this weekend and it will be substantial (after some rest). We’re going to clean up reporting all current positions and profit loss status and be ready for the new.
Thanks very much again for your support and stay safe out there today.
Oil Trade Alerts
This time cycle was spot on, too bad I miss executed my swing trade trying to chip in to the turn on the intra-week trade I chickened out, that was an error. However, the EPIC V3.1.1 upgrade is firing with precision in the oil trading room and alerts so this is very encouraging, the code updates we a challenge in this Black Swan event to say the least.
This time cycle alerted in crude oil in this article was in fact the low for the week. Understanding time cycles can help traders position bias on various time-frames #OOTT $CL_F $USO $USOIL #premarket #oiltrading #timecycles

Swing Trade Alerts
And on the swing trading alerts side of the biz things are going well, it’s just a matter of working through positioning (dot plotting) your trade thesis within themes, this takes a lot of work.
The last two cycles were super strong and we expect the new to be also, it does take some time however in the inflection (or the turn of the cycle). This weekend we’ll have a lot more of the set-ups out to our swing trading members and the inflection should start to take hold and clarity in to end of August 2020 time cycle should be in full play (themes of trades).
The alerts this morning to the swing trading alert feed are examples of themes that should be strong.
The ZOOM swing trade alert was a double, that is a great example of a theme type play.
There are others developing now for this time cycle, so we expect each time cycle to be bigger as we go.

Today is #EIA (oil inventories) in advance of the short holiday week.
We are only managing current positions in equities until after EIA. New swing trade positions are very likely to trigger between EIA and Tues premarket. See recent swing reporting for details.
Since the new office set-up (post draw down), EPIC v3 oil trading software has been firing exactly as the white paper prescribes during draw-down periods and is nearing its return to the 150% ROI. As it progresses further in this cycle you will find it to become increasingly more aggressive and fire more frequently as ROI trajectory is returned to 150%.
Next in its code protocol is to build profit base and then challenge the ROI to upside. When it fails, its next protocol is to limit the next draw down % to less than previous and then rinse and repeat.
This is in effect a notice that trade executions will increase in frequency near term.
We have a report near completion also with reference to price symmetrical extensions and also an update to the white paper to be released soon (reflecting executions during draw down and return to ROI).
So as this sequence (since draw-down and post office move) builds momentum the aggressiveness and ROI does also, so I'm excited to watch the next few weeks with EPIC v3, I'm getting used to the cycle and looking forward to each series.

The swing platform has been doing excellent (consistently between 100-400% per annum since we started) and you can expect a report soon on its profit and loss in last quarter along with detailed protocol explanations (how to) so you can institute the methods as you wish in your own trading. The swing trade system has become very refined over the last 4 years so I intend to get a how-to published soon.
I wouldn’t expect any live trading in the trading room until after 10:30 AM EST today so I likely won’t be on mic live until then.
Even if you are not attending the webinar, you should read this if you are a client of Compound Trading Group or affiliates.
As of 2:00 PM Saturday We Have 3 Spots Left for the Sunday Crude Oil Trade Training Webinar!
10:00 AM – 6 PM EST Sunday March 24, 2019 we are hosting a special crude oil trading webinar.
This special series webinar will cover everything our trading team has learned about crude oil trade.
Content will include conventional and algorithmic crude oil trading. Conventional and algorithmic charting, technical set-ups, time cycles, sizing, swing trading and day-trading oil and much more.
In summary this will be a detailed insiders look at everything our lead trader and team have learned as investors, swing traders, day traders and algorithmic traders of crude oil.
The timing of this event is no accident and is specific to our lead trader / team finishing a full cycle learning process spanning decades (an organic, transparent systematic process of discovery) – investing to swing trading to day trading to high frequency machine trading and now AI on the horizon.
We know very specifically what works, what does not, why and how to execute on this knowledge.
The reality of return for each type of oil trading process may surprise you. We traded oil to over 60% return in January, 30% in February and in March some accounts are even negative (some are not) – there is a reason for the returns in each of those 3 months. We tried, tested, traded, back-tested every method of oil trade.
We will be uncovering it all for our attendees in a one-time 8 hour special webinar event.
To be clear, our discovery process is over, after this webinar is over we will only be trading specifically what we know to be the highest probability set-ups. We won’t be testing here forward.
Shortly after this webinar we go private, so now is the time.
Below is important information for attendees (from a previous post):
The webinar will cover my strategies for conventional and algorithmic oil trade and charting, intra-day trading, short term swing trading, longer term swing trading, trade sizing, time cycles, key set-ups and much more.
I will explain in detail how I maintain a win rate of better than 90% in crude oil trade (live recorded in our oil trading room and live alerted to our members).
Limited attendance of 25 persons to allow me to take questions and converse as needed to be sure we cover the trading concepts in detail.

Premarket Note and Important Client Updates March 8, 2019.
Good morning traders!
Last night we were in coding / trade protocol publication conference all night so there was no live trading for me in the overnight session.
I am scheduled in main live trading room (voice / chart broadcast room) at US regular market open (9:30 EST) and during active trade today. Mid day trade setups review in live trading room will be set off until Monday as we are working on completion of the oil trade protocols (yes, still grinding through it).
Sunday we will return to active trade attendance in overnight trade (12:00 midnight EST).
For those unaware, our trading team is on a daily scheduled break from 2:30 PM to 12:00 midnight EST. We are in attendance from 12:00 midnight to 2:30 PM EST. I am typically in the main live broadcast trading room at regular US market open (9:30 AM EST), mid day review (12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST), during any active trading and for special events (weekly EIA, webinars, etc).
Link to live broadcast trading room: https://compoundtrading1.clickmeeting.com/livetrading
The team will also be in the Discord chat rooms today as usual. If you need a link to access Discord please email us.
Current Work In Progress.
Crude Oil Machine Trade Protocol Document Set:
For those unaware (and for the sake of updating everyone), as noted above we were at it again last night working through the code detail and oil trade protocol publications.
Again, my apologies for being behind on our schedule with this task, unfortunately it happens. The coding work and associated protocols are VERY detailed. With over 8000 instructions in the code it is taking some time to condense those instructions to an easy to reference set of protocol documents for our clients.
We’re close now, while I write this Jeremy has advised me that his final edits are done so I’ll do my last review and send the protocols out to clients this weekend.
The written protocols (rule-set) are a document series intended to assist our clients with being able to reference the trading rule-set (instructions / protocol) our machine trading software is executing trades to.
In other words, when oil trade alerts are sent to alert feeds (private client Twitter feed & client private Discord server chat) marked with an “M” for machine trade, our member will then be able to reference the trade rule-set / set-up specific to that alert. The goal is for our member to know what the trading plan is for each type of alert.
One protocol document (rule-set) for each type of trade set-up alerted to the feeds.
This is another step toward our goal of an intelligent assisted trading platform for our traders / clients. The broadcast trading rooms, Discord chat, newsletter publications, live alerts etc are a start toward that and the protocol documents are the next step. Moving forward near future our developers will be automating the machine trade alerts to the alert feeds, trading rooms etc.
In January we posted over 60% account gains in crude oil trade, February profit and loss statement is above 30% (depending on the account – some less some more, yet to be released – Jen has that on her WIP) and we’re shooting for 100% in March. To get 100% in this environment (see below) is a challenge, but we’re in it to win it. Read on.
Personal Oil Trades – Choppy week for me (personal oil trades) and the machine trading. Yesterday was my first red day in a while.
I AM RETURNING to ONLY THE HIGHEST PROBABLE TRADE SET-UPS after the chop I was in yesterday. You will see less trades from me over the coming days, but the oil trades I do alert will be the highest probable wins and they will be trades I will want to be able to execute in SIZE.
The smaller the account the more chop I experienced yesterday. The larger the account the easier it was to navigate the chop.
Crude Oil Machine Trading – Specific to the machine trading, the protocol document flow due out soon will help our clients understand this better, but for now I will say that the machine trade liquidity in the markets has become extremely advanced, very quickly. And I wouldn’t doubt sophisticated AI manifesting near term.
Machine trade in crude oil liquidity is becoming more advanced literally by the day (we have noticed a substantial recent increase in change). Our timing in this endeavor is really interesting in my opinion.
What am I saying? Well, for example most recently we have noticed the machine traded liquidity in the markets has moved down one and sometimes two time-frames. This means that the machine driven liquidity in crude oil trade is executing trade on half or a quarter minute charting time-frames. Imagine that.
If you can imagine having coded the software (with over 8000 instructions) and written the protocol document rule – sets for over forty set-ups only to find that in sideways consolidated oil trade action that the machine liquidity is now moving from a one minute time-frame in executions to a half or even a quarter minute time-frame. Human traders don’t even have charting for that!
Anyway, that’s what we have found the last ten days in the sideways trade in crude oil (look at a daily crude oil chart).
This has caused us to re-code appropriately, trim our throttle down and down and down again the time-frame that our software will fire trades at and re-do and re-do and re-do the trading protocol documents that our clients will use to reference the trade set-up at each oil trade alert.
I have spoken to our most experienced oil traders (we have some serious veterans in our midst) and all of them had a tough week – and these folks rarely are challenged with trading green.
It was a tough week, but we responded and re-coded, and we’re throttling down the software appropriately so it fires on lower time frames and I am personally adjusting my personal trades to only take the best set-ups with a preference to those that I will be able to size in to.
Swing / Day Trading:
Review all current / swing trades thus far in 2019 and current here (if you need an access code email us):
In addition to the trades in the document above I am also now in a starter swing trade position in $HIIQ (per yesterday’s alert).
2019 has been really positive in our swing trading platform, the returns have been great and I expect the next time cycle to continue as such. We should see near 100% return on the year if things continue as they are. The first quarter P/L will be out end of month for review.
Just remember to take profits along the way with the winning swing trades and use stops to protect your account equity.
We expect to start the next round of swing trades between now and Tuesday morning of next week.
New Client On-boarding.
The only outstanding new client on-boarding are our newest Legacy Members. All new Legacy All Access Members should have received a conference time with myself for this Sunday afternoon or evening. Look forward to connecting with each of you.
Before you start executing trades as a client of Compound Trading Group I highly recommend you study and even take a few hours of private trade coaching to be sure you are best set for success in your trading. Too many newer clients to our group start trading way to early in the process.
Study the historical blog posts specific to your trading focus. Examples are the oil algorithm historical posts on the blog, the crude oil trading special articles listed on the Oil Trading Academy page on our website or the Swing Trading historical posts on the blog. Many posts are unlocked over time for public view and if you are a member that needs an access code to a specific post please email us.
You can also study the videos on our YouTube channel. They are raw video feed (so they aren’t packaged for quick consumption sound bites) but if you’re willing to put in the time they will be of great benefit to your trading.
Also of great benefit are the private Discord servers, especially the crude oil server. You can review historical chat and trade set-ups – many new clients have told me this has been of great benefit.
Attendance to the live trading room when I am broadcasting my live trades (or reviewing historical raw video on You Tube) also helps.
And lastly, if you want to take your technical analysis / charting etc to the next level, there is a 20 hour video series available (the Master Class Series recorded last year) for 1499.00.

October 2, 2018 12:02 PM Oil trading strategy for this week.
Voice broadcast doesn’t start until 6:00 on video.
Quick review for oil trading plan this week, first up is EPIC Oil Algorithm.
Price targets on EPIC Oil Algorithm model are in a cluster this week around API Tuesday 4:30 and Wednesday 10:30 and oil intra-day is trading within the price target cluster which doesn’t surprise me.
Last few weeks have been tough for me personally trading oil.
Oil is in parallel channel above where it was trading in the model. Oil is in bullish trend but I don’t trust trade divergent in a channel parallel to where it should be trading.
I have two different trading plans for trading oil this week – one for swing trading oil and one for intra-day trading oil.
Swing trading plan thesis is based on a long entry at or near the bottom of the channel in oil trade on the chart on video. Same thesis as last week and I missed my entry. I will be looking for a long with a stop and re-enter as I need to get positioning, it will be in size.
There are some comments at this point on the video to trading psychology reflecting on my own challenges getting positioning in oil trade.
The intra-day oil trading plan is simple and based on how oil has recently been squeezing, so if it squeezed again I’ll just go with it with stops and I won’t sit under pressure.
If I have to take some paper cuts I’ll take the paper cuts to get positioning (as with my swing trade plan also).
The second chart reviewed in the video is a weekly oil chart highlighting the wedge and some inlay Fibonacci quads with trend-lines. 74.23 Oct 22 is a downside scenario on that chart with 68.39 worst scenario same day, but when you weigh the recent trend up that isn’t likely. Upside trade resistance areas on FX USOIL WTI are at 76.84, 78.36, 79.64.
The charts below correspond to charts reviewed on the trading room video (previously published in weekly oil report).

It’s Friday so we thought in lieu of a regular premarket report we would use the slower day to provide important updates to our members (and mailing list) to be sure everyone is in the loop about our development of trade alerts, algorithm updates, algorithm development process, swing trading reports, special reporting, upcoming trade coaching, the trading rooms (chat rooms) and more.
Members that have been with us some time have a good understanding of the development and roll-out process (so this is not new but provides our current status nonetheless) and newer members will be kept aware of our process.
In short, our firm is a science driven process that is developing algorithms from charting phase to software and eventually a digital intelligent assisted traders dashboard that may eventually be AI and big data equipped.
As we develop the algorithmic charting (that our members use along with conventional charting) we real world test the charting models with our team (various members of our team trade the market action for the instrument using the algorithmic chart model) and our members also test drive the models and report back to us. In short, we model (chart) the natural trading range of the instrument on 12 or more time frames (1 min, 5 min etc), we back test the predictability of the model up to 60 months and find out which time frames under which circumstances test the best – providing a trading edge in specific time frames, in specific areas of the models, under the right conditions.
See the Algorithm Development Process here.
At times the markets provide opportunity for laser focused team development, such as when the swing trading environment was most clear to the modeling post election and early 2018 (the machine liquidity in the markets provides for development clarity because trade is very precise to the charting models). Anyway, this week this occurred in oil trade. The surprise EIA crude stock pile report Wednesday at 10:30 AM (large draw) had machine liquidity kick in to gear and we haven’t stopped processing data since (it’s now Friday morning). So this week (after I took a few short days Sunday, Monday and Tuesday with my daughters visiting) when the Wednesday EIA crude oil report was released that took our team focus for the week and now here we are on Friday.
Point being, in specific market inflection moments it becomes all hands on deck because in those moments there are specific machine liquidity “tells” that change everything we do. It provides us further edge (critically important trader edge data) because we witness the trading action live. This live trading action when the machine liquidity is engaged in the movement of the instrument (in this case this week it was crude oil trade) is key to our profit side trading (it has a lot to do with why I have alerted 100% wins to the oil trade alert feed for many months). Trading “in the pocket” of the machine engaged liquidity provides us at least 90% of our total returns (team wide).
For those that haven’t reviewed our disclosure and member agreement now would be a good time. Our team trades many scenarios from model accounts for testing our algorithm models to real cash accounts to derivatives, regular equities, currencies, futures and much more and in many different scenarios and platforms. It is a science based process constantly testing.
Specific to this week’s reporting, the regular weekly reporting did not get distributed to members and this will happen in these scenarios at various junctures of our growth. Our oil trading room members can reflect that the amount of reporting live in the room this week was likely more than we’ve reported all year – but a weekly report didn’t get out. Just as with our swing trading members they will know that when the swing trading machine trading liquidity is strong there are many reports (recently in earnings we processed five weeks of reports for our swing trading members in ten days as example).
When the market inflections occur and reporting is delayed we also do our best to update any chart models during the week that are possibly expiring with a refresh.
As our weekly reporting is concerned, we see that normalizing this week starting Sunday running through the week. Going forward members can expect the weekly reporting to flow from Sunday to Saturday on weekly rotation instead of the majority being on Sunday’s. It will easier on our staff.
Also of note toward our regular algorithmic chart reporting is the topic of new updates – specifically toward the machine trading overlays / time frames we are testing. We have started to roll out the oil trading machine time frames (this will become much more specific in reports over the coming weeks and has more recently in the Discord private oil trading room). Soon we will roll out the Bitcoin and the SPY models and then the others in Gold, Silver, VIX, the US Dollar etc. We are also rolling out machine trading time frames for our Swing Trading platform. We had originally wanted the key / most important machine trading models out early Aug but at this point we a doing our best to get the key / most important models out before our Trade Coaching event in Cabarete Dominican Republic mid September 2018.
The Cabarete event (that you can attend online vs. in person) will be key to our members in that we will be using this trade coaching event to document on video and teach our members how to use the machine trading time line charting. Of course we will also be using much of the coaching time for conventional trading methods and charting.
Specific to special reporting, this last week has provided a significant opportunity to refine our trading models. We did a large amount of oil trading of which some was done without alerting, some was on our model accounts and much real world tested and alerted to our oil trade alerts feed on Twitter and in our private oil trading chat room in Discord. I even did a special session on Wednesday during EIA and in to the afternoon that I recorded in the main trading room, we traded a number of times while oil was spiking, tested some new oil charting models and since then we have been alerting winning trades and posting to the private chat room. All of that activity is being reconciled now and special reports will start flowing to members between now and Saturday.
And I will state for those that don’t know, when we are testing trades and models for one instrument (such as oil this week), this isn’t lost time to our members in other areas such as Gold, Silver or Swing Trading members (for example). The knowledge we gain is transferred to all of our member services. Much of what we learned and developed this week in oil trade will be used for the other areas of our platform.
In closing I am confident that you will see the regular reporting flow this coming week, you will also see some very important special reporting that you do not want to miss because we are winning a very high percentage of trades now (my personally alerted oil trades have not lost in many months, our lead tech has had 2 or 3 losses and I have had a couple of personal non alerted losses – that’s over many months). These trade alerts are all live alerted, time-stamped, on the trade alert feed and recorded.
Do your best to get out to our trade coaching event or at minimum register for the online version of it (I think there’s 3 spots left). And if you can’t get to it or be online with us live then consider getting the material by online download at a later date. The 30 hours of training will shorten your learning curve months to years as it is a condensed version of what took us decades to learn.
Anything we can do for you please let us know. Jen email JenL@compoundtrading.com, our main is firstname.lastname@example.org or message us in the Discord trading room (there are free public areas and private member areas). Also please remember that if you message us during market hours (including premarket) there is a good chance you won’t receive a reply until after market.

Peace and best.
