Weekly Simple Swing Trade Charting is out:

Overview and Summary Review of Markets, Chat Room, Algo Calls, Trades and Alerts:

In play today in chat room; $ESPR, $HTBX, $PTIE, $NAK, $NG_F, $UGAZ, $GC_F, $JNUG, $DUST

$PULM was a decent runner on the day but I didn’t trade it because we were in $ESPR and watching the market movements. Some were cleaning up there risk and those type of things.

Our traders continue to do well with Natural Gas on the turn with $UGAZ and the Gold turn in $JNUG. I am still sitting in a small $DUST position that I will either add to or pivot to long Gold or miner’s in $JNUG or $NUGT if Gold confirms to upside – but it has been mostly sideways the last few months and Gold is struggling with the resistance identified by our algo some weeks back (long before Gold was anywhere near where it is).

$NAK is also on a turn here and our room has been all over it.

My morning momentum play was in $EPSR and it was a near perfectly executed trade. The video explains the chart indicators I use that got me out of the trade right on time very near the top – and there is video for it below. I got in because the market was weak but $ESPR had run the day before aggressively and in premarket it was aggressive coming in to the open. So I entered and sent an alert to our members right before open and added a few times and exited right before it turned back down. Awesome momentum trade – test book.

$ESPR Entered 44.52 premarket 1350 shares closed 934 47.63 Live on trading video with explanations will be in postmarket post for today.

$ESPR, Trading, Results

$ESPR Entered 44.52 premarket 1350 shares closed 934 47.63 Live on trading video with explanations will be in postmarket post for today. #daytrading

Premarket trading plan (member post) can be found here:

Premarket was all about: $ESPR, $HTBX, $PTIE

$ESPR was up about 7% but it wasn’t hitting a lot of the scanners in social etc but I was watching it because it ran the day before of course.

$PTIE was up 66% premarket so this and $HTBX were where most trader’s were focused when I looked around (we have most rooms on our monitors and social etc).

$HTBX was up 23% premarket on news also.

Through the evening and early morning in the algo lab I was tweeting a storm of tweets about how the market looked bearish and had been for a few days and sure enough Tuesday was the day. Nailed it to the day but we did know it was coming. Our $SPY algo nailed the interim top AGAIN and we were sending messages in our reporting to members on different services (even on these post market trading results posts). So we were more than ready.

Algorithmic Chart Modeling Reports / News:

The interesting thing I find about our algorithmic model charting is that they always keep us on top of not just trading ranges and the like but they have all been hitting the important turns like our Gold algo hitting the top last year and the most recent bottom turn, our dollar algo is all over it and our SPY algo had us ready for this top and on and on.Or even our oil algo, always nailing it. It has added an element to my trading that I couldn’t do without – becoming used to it for sure when originally I struggled with it (like anyone would I suppose).

The Charting Algorithm Twitter feeds can be found here: $WTI (@EPICtheAlgo), $VIX (@VexatiousVIX), $SPY (@FREEDOMtheAlgo), $GLD (@ROSIEtheAlgo), $SLV (@SuperNovaAlgo), $DXY (@DXYUSD_Index).

Stocks, ETN’s, ETF’s I am Holding:

I am holding (in order of sizing – all moderately small size to micro sizing) – $DUST, $ONTX, $XOM, $NE, $ASM, $SSH, $LGCY, $TRCH, $ESEA, $MGTI (this is the daytrading portfolio and does not represent swing trading service portfolio): Looking at moving out of all these small positions over the next month or so.

The markets to me look toppy (as I’ve noticed previous). So last weekend we produced some simple swing charting that keeps me level when looking at the markets (examples below). Simple charting I find grounds you to simple trades which in turn keeps you profitable in toppy or sideways markets. So I find the practice crucial even though our algorithmic modeling can cut up a chart on any time-frame and I can trade scalping like nobody’s business with them… but I have businesses etc and I can’t be a minute by minute trader (right now anyway). So keeping it simple helps me and many on our swing trading side of the platform really appreciate the simple view because they have day jobs or businesses etc.

The Markets Looking Forward:

This is one perspective of things possible going forward:

Swing Trading Reports / News:

Live Trading Chat Room Transcript: (on YouTube Live):


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 *). Also, times are Central Mountain below (we’re working on the fix now), so for New York ET time add two hours to all times. Also, 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). 

Important note: There are a few pieces of the transcript missing from Tuesday. We’re learning that when there’s an interruption in service that we have to restart the room and reset transcripts and it is a bit cumbersome so we are thinking of trying a different service next week. We’ll get on the right platform and we’ll get the transcripts etc sorted.

There is a morning momentum trade that I did right before open and during open that has live voice broadcast that early traders would likely benefit from (with additional comments earlier in this post). I will try and get a detailed trade explanation video done (we’re in studio for 3 days this weekend doing nothing but educational videos – yes we booked 3 days wow).
