Trading alerts and Swing Trading and Day Trading set-ups raw video from Live Trading Room mid-day review Sept 20, 2018. Some of the trade set-ups in this video are from the Trading Boot-Camp.

Stocks and Commodities Reviewed: Crude Oil Trading Algorithm, $WTI, $CL_F, $USOIL, $USO, SP500, $SPY, $AAPL, $NFLX, $FB, $EDIT, $CRON, $NBEV, $BLDP, $BZUN, $AMD, $OSIS, $CARA, $BABA, $LVEB, $XBIO, $NIHD, $ICCC and more.

It has been excellent this week! I had reported last week that I seen an inflection coming early this week and we nailed it! Continued market momentum if very possible in to next week. Many of the set-ups I have been posting the last week are firing trade signals consistently.

ITS SEEMS WE HAVE SOLVED THE BROADCASTING ISSUES WITH HARD WIRED FIBER INTERNET.

BE SURE TO LOOK AT THE CHART DATE AND TIME IN TOP LEFT HAND CORNER OF EACH CHART.

September 20, 2018

Crude Oil Trading Update ($USOIL, $WTI, $CL_F, $USO) – I review the crude oil algorithm on the video. Twice this week I took trades that I closed only to have them run after closing (I was away from monitors at each time). Execution of trades at the support and resistance of the crude oil trading algorithm (EPIC) has been excellent.

The weekly oil price targets from the weekly crude oil trading report and the charting provided in the reports have been really predictable lately also.

The crude oil trading alerts feed has been quieter this week because the trading plan in oil was to take the trades at the wider ranges to leg in to the trades, I did however alert the channel support and channel resistance and following through those trades would have been very profitable for oil trading members.

SP500 $SPY $SPXL $SPXS – On the SPY algorithm charting for 60 minute time-frame I have been watching for a break over the test area resistance 291.60 (trade alert on SPY went to swing trading alerts feed). Sept 24 time cycle 288.88 283.77 and uptrend 299.50 would be most bullish scenario. 294.33 resistance intra and main support on SPY intra-day 293.00.

SP500 (SPY) premarket bullish with 294.31 key resistance and one smaller one in between $SPY $ES_F $SPXL $SPXS #SPY #SwingTrade #Daytrade

APPLE $APPL – Apple’s stock is over 50 ma on 240 minute chart, trade alert went out on swing trading alert feed for Apple today. Testing the 20 MA, 224.70 resistance, 229.70 resistance, 236.75 is heavy resistance. Support 215.60 area intra-day and 219.02.

AAPL, stock, chart, swing, trade

APPLE (AAPL) premarket bullish momentum with 20 MA test and 224.60 range buy sell trigger above $AAPL #swingtrading #tradealerts

NETFLIX $NFLX – The long side trade that alerted that some members took has been very good at main support on the Apple chart. The trading support and resistance areas are discussed on video. Review of the chart model and video are important to understand the trading signals for Apple. 364.00 362.14 support areas, 395.59 397.90 are resistance areas. Really important to look at the chart and video explanation however.

NETFLIX (NFLX) PT 3 over 380 mid quad resistance, targets 395.57 trendline (gray dotted) 398.20 red blue key resistance $NFLX #swingtrading #tradealert

FACEBOOK $FB – One of my favorite trade set-ups, especially for wash-out snap back trades. Facebook is currently under significant government pressure now so I am not expecting the same as previous. The horizontal red and blue support and resistance areas (forming the test area box on the charts) is reviewed and the diagonal Fibonacci trend lines. Here again review of the video and chart is really important. 167.51 mid quad resistance caution here, 100 MA resistance 169.40, diagonal Fib resistance, 173.51 is upside possible, 169.03 downside possible. The trading box is reviewed on the model. Buy sell triggers for trading signals on Facebook are also reviewed.

There is a previous special report on how to trade Facebook on our website.

FACEBOOK (FB) bounce off quad wall in to key resistance (red blue) upside test 20MA 50 MA – key test area $FB #swingtrading #tradealerts

EDITAS $EDIT – The value of structured set-ups with symmetry in the algorithmic stock chart models is discussed here. Examples are $GDX, $BLDP, $NBEV, $AGN, $EDIT and many more. The symmetry on EDIT chart has hit five times and typically you will see it stretched at that point. A trade alert went out today on $EDIT to watch closely going in to this time cycle. The video explains the details.

EDIT, stock, chart

EDITAS MEDICINE (EDIT) at 200 MA resistance test with peak time cycle Sept 24, careful on other side of cycle $EDIT #swingtrade #tradealert

CRONOS $CRON – I have reviewed CRON chart set-ups many times this week. There is a light sidewinder trade set-up with the 50 MA and 20 MA on the CRON charting. You can expect a fairly decent move when the 20 MA breaches the 50 MA upside. It’s a lower time-frame being on a 240 minute chart, but it still may be enough to get price over that key resistance area reviewed on the chart and video. Pivots support and resistance areas also reviewed on video.

$CRON, trading, premarket

CRONOS – per yesterday’s trade alert and review video over trendline on way to resistance test in premarket $CRONO #tradealert #premarket

NEW AGE BEVERAGES $NBEV – I put out a special report to members today on NBEV and the trade has been fantastic since. The resistance areas and time cycles are reviewed on the video. The testing area (trading box) are reviewed. Also the price extensions (price targets) are reviewed. If price holds and price moves bullish in to time-cycle discussed on video the upside price targets for NBEV are extremely positive and reviewed on video. 9.38 is a very critical resistance and support area in to the key time cycle peak on the NBEV chart.

BALLARD POWER $BLDP – On the swing trading alert feed today a special alert went out on the fact that the last five time cycle completions in Ballard Power stock charting the price reversed in trade of Ballard. This is a symmetrical stock trade set-up that traders should not ignore. BLDP trading 4.50 up 7.42% intra-day spiking in to time cycle completion Oct 10, resistance 4.50 and the test range on the chart is reviewed.

BALLARD POWER, stock, chart, setup,

BALLARD POWER (BLDP) Five out of five of the last major time cycles price reversed, Oct 10 is next time cycle peak. $BLDP #swingtrading #tradealerts

BOAZUN $BZUN – Holding key support intra-day, if it holds a run up in price is possible. Termination of time cycle on 4 hour chart is near so get ready soon. High probability set-up. Details of trade set-up for BZUN reviewed in video. My bias is that this runs up.

ADVANCED MICRO $AMD – key support hit on chart and bounced, Oct 2 price target in bullish scenario is 33.62 and bearish scenario 22.87 in sell-off, mid quad on chart is discussed on video with various price target scenarios like 31.40 range being indecisive price target on Oct 2.

AMD, stock, chart

ADVANCED MICRO (AMD) hit key support and bounced, targets 33.62 Oct 2 or sell off 28.87, watch structure uoutlined on chart #swingtrading #tradealerts

OSI SYSTEMS $OSIS – trading 77.55 testing 50 MA and key Fibonacci resistance on diagonal Fibonacci trend line, price target 84.21 Dec 28 is possible in uptrend trading. Resistance and support lines and how to trade the chart is reviewed on the model in video.

OSI, stock, chart

OSI SYSTEMS (OSIS) Trading 77.55 testing 50 MA and key Fib resistance, over targets 84.21 Dec 28, 18 $OSIS #tradealerts #swingtrading

CARA THERAPEUTICS $CARA – I knew this one was going to get going, you don’t get many trade set-ups this strong.

There is a trade coaching bit of advice at this point on the video with reference to trading structured charting and its benefits to traders. Also market inflections and how to trade for your profit and loss and associated sizing in market inflections is also reviewed.

CARA is a great case study, going back to NBEV chart is reviewed on video – how price was getting bullish in to time cycle and how that relates to symmetry and price targets that can be traded.

28.20 is very likely fast in CARA trading if trade gets above key resistance. I put a trade alert out while recording video.

CARA, stock, chart, swing, tradin

CARA THERAPEUTICS (CARA) Nice swing trade from trading bootcamp in to next leg at resistance intra day $CARA #swingtrade #tradealert

ALIBABA $BABA – this is the swing trade that I was under water on, bounced of 100 MA, now back in it’s structure, has a number of tests, 206.85 price target to upside with 237.62 most bullish scenario May 27, 2019. See chart review in video.

ALIBABA, BABA, stock, chart

ALIBABA (BABA) bullish up 2% intra day, holding support of trading range well. Trim in to resistance add above. $BABA #tradealerts #swingtrade

LEVEL BRANDS $LVEB – anything over 6.00 will confirm an upside trend and if that triggers we’ll structure the charting for you and go from there.

ALTIMMUNE $ALT – hit 50 MA resistance today, alarmed for a breach above the 50 MA and a possible run to 100 MA. Will alert the trade in ALT if it breaches the 50 MA and structure the chart model for members.

$CRBP – chart is too choppy.

COOL HOLDINGS $AWSM – garbage chart.

$YGYI – trade never holds gains.

$AYTU – choppy trading, garbage chart.

XENETIC BIOSCIENCES $XBIO – there is a special trade set-up report out on this set-up in XENETIC BIOSCIENCESS (XBIO) chart, trading up 23% today.

$OSN – over 200 MA, no good, no structure.

NII HOLDINGS $NIHD – up 19% in trading today, aggressive chart, bounced off 20 MA, trading 5.06, good argument 5.60 as a watch area on other side of the bowl, 6.25 is a safer region to look at a possible big run to 9.00. A double upside extension is possible. It is a structured trading chart. I alarmed NIHD for a trade.

$ICCC – trading 9.13 up 20%, swing trading service provider dream, signal long when price is over 200 MA and win almost every trade, you would take the odd cut but the moves would make up any cuts taken.

$VXRT – trading 2.85, terrible chart.

$COE – bad chart.

$KNDI – not a bad chart, testing the 50 MA, over 200 MA you could start to look at it, this will likely go on a run upside over 200 MA, possible reversal setting up on this chart.

$FTNW – bad chart.

$COCP – bad chart.

$LOMA – bad chart.

Trading alerts and trading set-ups raw video from Live Trading Room mid-day review Sept 18, 2018. Some of the trade set-ups in this video are from the Trading Boot-Camp.

Sept 18, 2018 Mid Day Trading Room Review.

Again, the sound upload quality struggled, today we’ll test the hardwired set-up and see if it’s better.

Reviewed the PL for 2017 and 2018 along with goals for Q4 2018 and Q1 2019 – gearing up for a big Q4 this year and Q1 2019 (getting back to basics of trading vs software development because development funds come from trading of course).

BE SURE TO LOOK AT THE CHART DATE AND TIME IN TOP LEFT HAND CORNER OF EACH CHART.

Crude Oil $WTI $CL_F $USO – review of crude oil algorithm and crude oil trading alert at channel support that I should have held, anyway I cut and missed it. Also the top channel resistance crude oil trade set-up was good (missed it, but some of the members reporting they nailed it). Opportunities this week with trading range and EIA reviewed. Crude oil machine trading price targets reviewed also (for last week’s trade). Only 1 minute chart below showing intra day resistance on second trade attempt on day (algorithm models not below).

VKTX, trading, chart

VIKING THERAPEUTICS (VKTX) premarket up 140% on liver trial news. $VKTX #premarket #daytrading

TILRAY $TLRY – trading at only 420 x earnings or something like that. Weekly chart gap on gap on weekly body of candles. Only way I would long this is on short time frames, and I likely will when the pot stocks settle a bit – working on the charting for all the pot stocks right now (hopefully released this weekend in prep for a sector pull back when it happens).

SP500 $SPY $SPXS $SPXL – 60 minute chart reviewed, over 291.70 is the upside break resistance, above the box price targets for Sept 27 reviewed on video, various support and resistance areas reviewed.

MOMO $MOMO – signalling a long or add long over 48.50 (if it holds, you always trim in to resistance areas and then add above or wait for a pull back and add to your long trade), expected trading trajectory reviewed on video, price targets for between now and Feb 5, 2019 large time cycle peak conclusion reviewed on video. This is a very structured chart.

US Dollar $DXY – decision October 3, 2018 that is important on the US Dollar DXY charting (parallel to many other peak time cycles in broad markets). Probability is up at or prior to time cycle completion.

$RLM – no.

$OASM – if you’re a risk taking trader this is a real aggressive chart structure, top of bowl is where it is trading now but it has a nature of coming off hard and it is thinly traded.

$NBEV NEW AGE BEVERAGES – weekly chart over 50 MA targeting 100 MA not a great ROI there in that set-up, chart is hard read. On daily up over 200 MA, does respect the 200 MA on daily, Showing bullish initial signals of a return. This one should go. Volume is good, Initial view I was not too interested but as I looked closer at the NBEV chart I realized this on should be on high watch. I went in to great detail of the pivots on the chart, buy sell triggers and price targets for NBEV.

NEW AGE BEVERAGES (NBEV) Above 2.80, targets 3.27, 4.17, 4.89.

$RDCM – sitting on previous trading range support. 16.00 is reasonable, decent chart.

CRONOS GROUP (CRON) $CRON – reviewed on video, on the fly chart structure model reviewed. On high watch, expect a possible upside trading scenario with CRONOS. A trendline resistance was reviewed and important support and resistance and price targets reviewed on video (while we are processing this report the morning of Sept 19 it is moving in premarket trading up 8.39% at 12.53 in premarket this morning nearing its upside trading test area, the trendline resistance was broke to upside and the 13.00 area resistance in next). Over trendline sees the next test fast and the other price targets reviewed on video.

AVON – Daily chart for AVON reviewed, likes the 200 MA with some room, testing resistance right now, I can’t touch it until it’s up for 3.00, needs to see recent highs first and then still some challenges.

$PYX – weekly chart reviewed, no structure I can work with.

$NVTA – aggressive structure, 18.90 alarmed on chart, has potential for a rip upside.

$EPM – not enough there. Doesn’t have margin, widths.

$CL – bad structure on chart.

YELP $YELP – technical bounce off 200 MA on the weekly chart in to resistance area on chart, if you’re long go to previous steps shown on chart in video, not taking the trade but it may work, not my thing – not enough range for ROI ROE for me.

$SRT – no.

$JONE – no.

$DEQ – no.

CANOPY GROWTH $CGC – had the opportunity to be in ground floor of this industry in Canada and turned it down jeez, getting close to previous candle high on weekly chart, could see a large a move there. Chart for Canopy Growth reviewed on the video. Can’t chase it here where it is on the chart and I’ll watch. Working on the structure of all the charts on our equities covered in our swing trading platform and when we’re done I’ll get more day trade aggressive.

CALIFORNIA RESOURCES $CRC – Aggressive chart and trade set-ups, coming out of bowl, 39.32 an 39.86 pivots on chart reviewed on video. Start watching it at 40.00 and see how it does.

THOR INDUSTRIES $THO – resting on the 200 MA trading about half way between it and 100 MA, it will likely turn here, price above moving averages on chart with 20MA breaching the 50 MA is a good entry long on this chart. The sidewinder set-up will be key on this one (reviewed on video) – that’s where the good returns are.

$MRSN – no chart structure, junk.

DIGITAL ALLEY $DGLY – trading 4.05, daily chart, getting in to diagonal trendline resistance at 12.20 right now, over 12.31 is a nice confirmation to the long side of this trade. Nice chart.

$CCXI – swing traders service type of trending stock that has way to many steps and not enough ROI, the step type that chop up a trader I’m not interested in.

$MHLD – no.

$BRID – no.

$NXIO – chart structure can get aggressive, gapping through chart structure makes me nervous.

There were many more of the momentum stocks for the day reviewed and the stocks selling-off on the day were also reviewed.

Part Six b) of the “Freedom Traders” Series:  Trading Set-ups. Video Explains Predictable Winning Process.

This post is the video / blog companion to “Trading Set-ups. How-To Develop a Systematic – Predictable Process. Part 6 a) “Freedom Traders” Series”. It is a $STUDY for Traders Endeavoring to Trade With a High Degree of Probability.

Introduction.

The video below will provide overview explanations of the various trade set-ups I use with different types of trading I do (Swing Trading, Day Trading and Algorithmic Model Trading).

I endeavor in this series of posts to first provide an overview of my trading systems and through subsequent posts I will break-out the details of each trade set-up I use.

Check back to the posts in this section (section 6 of the Freedom Traders series) because 6 a. and 6 b. will be updated regularly with new set-ups added to the overview lists and the subsequent posts in section 6 will have more and more specific trade set-up videos and blog posts included in the series.

The Purpose.

As explained in the introduction to this series (in Part 6 a), the purpose of this part of the series is to assist traders in developing their own predictable trading systems.

A large part of a successful trading plan is having a predictable trading system that you can rely on – a “rules-based trading process”.

Finding at least one trading system that will work the majority of the time, that is easy to use, fits your personality, is predictable and easily reproducible is key.

Trading Set-Ups Overview: Overview Video Number One.

This video touches on a number of chart set-ups / indicators / disciplines specific to day trading and swing trading and not so much algorithmic chart modeling. It is approximately 30 minutes in length and it provides a working foundation (overview) of the type of trading I execute.

You won’t find high flying ideas, hot new stocks of the week or some other high flying idea here.

You will however find systematic trading principles that will return 80% + win rates. Very predictable set-ups that can be duplicated with a high degree of success. Below the video are some itemized notes reflecting the content of the video.

    • Test of price to 20 MA and indicators cross back up then test of 50 MA etc.
    • Trading and testing through the moving averages until trade gets above 200 MA and then you’re in to trading set-up #1.
  • Chart Time-Frames and MA Action are Critical for Trading the Stock (Timing entries and exits).
    • Confirming your trade bias through looking at the different time frames including weekly, daily, hourly, 30 minute, 15 minute, 5 minute, 3 minute and 1 minute charts depending on your time-frame.
    • Fibonacci should confirm the moving averages as support and resistance points on the chart.
    • Moving averages are a modern representation of the tape.
    • Timing entries and exits based on indicators.
    • Price above MA’s is critical in bullish bias trade and opposite is true for bearish outlook on various time frames and exits can be timed in trade.
    • Example Long Set-Up at 52.05 on chart culminating in sell signal at 70.35 – a 40% increase before you get sell signal on chart.
    • Trading through the MA’s before the 200 MA breach is possible (bottom play – trade set-up #2).
  • Chart Resistance and Support Levels.
    • Fibonacci, Natural Horizontal Chart Resistance and Moving Averages.
  • Trading Earnings.
    • I rarely hold through earnings. I sell in to and re-enter after earnings.
    • Low risk trading is my goal.
  • Algorithmic Modeling and Fibonacci.
    • Basic algorithm quadrants and diagonal resistance.
  • $FSLR Chart Examined for a Day-Trade.
    • Moving through the time-frames and various places to enter your trade – what quantifies bullish and bearish and timing your trade.
    • A day trade hopefully becomes a swing or trend trade. 14% ROI on monthly trade example.
    • Enter on tight time-frame (after confirming your wide time-frames set-up).
    • Confirming your entry with “power”. Avoiding getting cut up with fast exits. Timing trades with power.
    • Price, Trigger, Power, Trade, Risk, Reward. PTPTRR. Being ready for the power trade with the moving average set-ups.
    • Legging in 20% at a time. Five leg principle in a move.
    • Knowing where your most likely resistance is in the move and exiting the trade.

Closing.

That concludes the video / blog portion of the trade set ups overview that accompanies “Trading Set-ups. How-To Develop a Systematic – Predictable Process. Part 6 a) “Freedom Traders” Series. Hopefully this series will assist you in building a rules based trading process.

As I mentioned at the outset, I will next post a series of articles to explain the fine details of each trade set-up I use. The videos will also detail many other indicators I use. I will also be explaining more in future about how our algorithmic model trading indicators are used.

Remember to check back to this specific post and part a because the list of indicators and the overview of each will grow with time.

As mentioned in Part A I also highly recommend taking in our regular trading webinars and most specifically the mid day trade and chart set-up reviews.

Repetition breads success. Repetition provides laser focused trading skills that only comes from practice, practice, practice.

Our team time in the mid day chart and trade set-ups is a training ground for success through repetition and fresh trade ideas.

After a Trader Learns to Limit Losses (with radical discipline), Obtaining a Systematic Trading Process is Critical to Long Term Success. Below I Begin Explaining My Personal Trading Process.

Part Six a. of the “Freedom Traders” Series: Trade Set-ups. How-To Develop a Systematic – Predictable Process. 

Provided at the bottom of this article are Parts 1 – 5 of this series. Part 1 : My Personal Stock Trading Story. How I Blew up Two Accounts and Then Learned How to Trade, Part 2 : Trading Checklist – Rules I Follow Before Triggering, Part 3: Now I’m Inspired!.A Struggling Trader That Inspired Change, Part 4: We Want (Need) You! Apply to Nearest Recruiting Station, Part 5: New Trading Challenge 10k to 1M, Part 6 b: Trading Set-ups. Video Explains Predictable Winning Process (companion to part 6 a).

Introduction:

This article is an overview list of the various trade set-ups I use with different types of trading I am involved in.

I will endeavor in this series of posts to first explain my trading system and then through subsequent posts I will break-out the details of each trade set-up I use.

Please note, this is part 6 of the Freedom Trader’s series and because this topic will be extensive I am going to number them 6 a, b, c and so on and other sub topics in the series will continue onward with part 7. I suspect that I will be updating part 6 and its sub posts for many years to come.

The purpose of this part of the series is to assist trader’s in developing their own predictable trading systems (a rules based trading process).

A large part of a successful trading plan is having a predictable trading system that you can rely on. Finding at least one trading system that will work the majority of the time, that is easy to use, fits your personality, is predictable and easily reproducible is key.

Perfect a trading system that works the majority of time, is easy to use, fits your personality, is predictable & easily reproducible.

My Personal Objectives.

I believe the bar to my success is directly tied to what percentage of the traders in our trading group are successful on a regular and consistent basis. Not whether I can dazzle with home-run trades like some genie that comes out of the bottle daily.

But rather how well the traders in our group can reproduce methods / components of my trading systems for their own predictable gains and how well I can assist our traders in their trading success no matter where the system is found and then duplicated.

The bar (test) of my success is directly attached to what percentage of the traders in our group are successful on a regular and consistent basis.

How Good Can a Trading System Be?

Before I explain how good a trading system can be, I will tell you there are developments in the trading industry (specifically toward algorithmic trading) that very few in retail trading and even at the professional level understand. I won’t get in to detail here, but I can tell you frankly that if you peel back the layers of the onion you will find scientific evidence of trading models that are winning near 100%.

With that considered,  I discuss a system of trading in this series that provides trade set-ups with 80% to near 100% win rate (scientifically, mathematically back-tested and proven).

BUT, a near 100% win rate requires perfect trade execution in accordance with trade set-up rules AND I do not execute trades perfectly, so my win rate floats between 65% – 90%.

I would be best described as a trader that is “base hitting to wealth”. I use my base hitting skills and add the compounding affect to my portfolio (more on compound trading discipline here) and this is my way of building my portfolio.

I do not execute trades perfectly, so my win rate floats between 65% – 90%.

Once you have a winning system, then your success rate is completely determined by emotional intelligence and discipline.

Three Categories of Trading I Can Offer Set-ups For.

I utilize three categories of trading; day trading, swing trading and algorithmic model trading – each has its own disciplines (set-ups). I was for years also an investor – I do not invest anymore because the other methods of trade listed provide me higher returns.

I utilize three categories of trading; day trading, swing trading and algorithmic model trading – each has its own disciplines.

I swing trade and day trade simply because day trading or swing trading can experience periods of lull (where returns can be limited). And if I require at minimum 100% ROI per year, I cannot have periods of lull. I do not invest anymore because the best returns I was able to garner (on average) was 10% – 14% per year (all holdings considered).

I am now also involved intensely in algorithmic model trading. What is that? I am not trading with “bots” to be clear. I am trading algorthmic chart set-ups that are human executed (with the goal of concluding our development with a digital dashboard for traders – or a sophisticated “intelligent assistant” for traders).

Algorithmic charts (in our instance) are charts that use historical data to provide the highest probability of trade success for the trader.

Read about our algorithmic development process and Why Our Algorithms are Different than Most for more information.

A List of Trade Set-Ups (Systematic Processes) I Use for Day Trading, Swing Trading and Algorithmic Chart Trading.

Day Trading Set-Ups I Use:

Day trading is by far the most difficult of the three categories of trading. It requires a skill-set and emotional discipline and intelligence that goes far beyond swing trading and even more so with algorithmic chart trading.

I use a number of day trading set-ups, here are a few:

  • Intra-day Halts. By far the most profitable set-up for my style are intra-day halts. Intra-day halts provide my style exceptional opportunity for return.
  • Extended Hours News. Pre-market and after-market news are second most profitable, but because I don’t have a lot of extra time (specifically to trade pre-market or post market) my returns lately in these methods are limited. But when I am trading full-time and not running a number of businesses these are highly profitable for me.
  • Market Open Momentum Trades. Gap and go style trades along with others at market open provide significant opportunity for profit. I will caution new trades to stay away from these for a significant amount of time when they first start trading. Too many GURU’s in my opinion sell this wayyyy to much to new traders.
  • Technical Chart Set-Ups. Chart set-ups are my favorite, least stressful, highest probability of success way to day-trade. Not my highest ROI category but definitely my favorite. I bring over swing trade set-ups from my swing trading discipline (that are based on weekly and daily charts) to my day trading discipline – I just trade them on tighter time frames (hourly, 30 min, 15 min, 5 min, 3 min).
  • And of course there are many others I day trade such as break-outs on the daily or 52 week chart, bottom plays, wash-outs with snap-backs and many other types.

Swing Trading Set-Ups I Use:

Swing trading (or power swing trading in my instances) is less stressful than day trading and it has a more predictable return on investment than day trading. All things equal, if you execute both with skill swing trading cannot match the return on investment of day trading – but day trading with consistency and not blowing up your account is radically difficult to master.

Swing trading comes down to technical and/ or fundamental set-ups. I am a technical trader so I lean on technical set-ups (on the weekly or daily charts) and use fundamental research to support my trade set up bias only.

Below are a few technical and fundamental indicators I use for swing trading:

  • MACD – I rely on the MACD heavily as one of my primary indicators in swing trading entries and exits.
  • Moving averages – Second to MACD I utilize moving average disciplines for my trade entries and exits.
  • Fibonacci – I rely heavily on Fibonacci to confirm my bias (I do however use Fibs in a way most are unfamiliar with because of our algorthm chart modeling component).
  • Squeeze Momentum Indicator – This is a custom indicator available on Trading View. I use it to confirm my trades.
  • Trade Volume – Volume is an important indicator in my trade considerations.
  • Stochastic RSI – I use the Stoch RSI to try and refine any given entry or exit.
  • Earnings Dates – I rarely hold a trade through earnings. I recently held Google and Amazon and a few others with success, but that is rare for me.
  • Insider Buying and Selling – I almost always have an eye to insider trades before taking a trade.
  • Short Positions – Short positioning is important.
  • Fundamental Research – Instead of doing my own research I have specific experts I defer to prior to trading (it saves time and they are the experts. They consider me a technical expert so they bounce their trade considerations off me first also – it works back and forth well).

Algorithmic Chart Model Trading Set-Ups I Use:

Algorithmic chart model trading is by far the most predictable, least stressful trading method I use – and if the models are good it can be the most profitable (in our case the models have been exceptional).

We have six models we use (Oil, Gold, Silver, SPY, VIX and the USD) – our Oil algorithmic charting is the first and farthest along in development.

Our oil algorithm is returning well over 300% consistently and has indications of being able to achieve 1200% (the profit and loss statements will be released to the world within 30 days). That far outperforms the 40% – 120% my swing trading profit/loss provides and the 80% – 240% my day trading profit/loss provides.per annum. And even better, there is zero fundamental research required and the chart set-ups are provided to the trader.

The question then is why don’t you simply trade algorithm charts? Well… we have a vision for democratizing the algorithmic trading discipline. Not the easiest path I could have chosen (democratizing our models).

If you research the topic (under the everyday thin later of research), you will find that our models are competing with the world’s best – and the world’s best are not available to the retail public. I have yet to find a high performance algorithm platform that is available to the retail public.

If the public decided or decides they don’t want our models, I will simply go dark and contract our models to dark pools – that option is presented daily. But that is not our mission. Heck I could just trade them in my own dark pool.

Below are a few of the chart set-ups I use in algorithmic chart trading:

  • Primary Trading Range Support and Resistance. Our algorithm charting provides clear support and resistance for the wide / broad trading range (wide quadrant range) prior to trade even getting to the date. In other words, it is future forward charting (unlike conventional charting which is charting what has already occurred).
  • Channel Support and Resistance. As with all other algorithmic chart models, our algorithms provide trading channels to our traders in advance of trade creating a channel. I trade support and resistance.
  • Time Price Cycle. Time price cycles are critical in our models and trading. Huge opportunities exist as time / price cycle come to conclusion.
  • Algorithm Targets. Our algorithms have specific targets for time and price future forward. This is something I consider but don’t trade heavily against.
  • Conventional support and resistance in channels and more. I refer to conventional charting simply to be aware of when conventional charting is in agreement with our algorithm models – it increases my bias toward a trade.
  • And of course in our work their are many other set-ups at work.

Closing.

That concludes my overview with reference to the various trade set-ups I use with the various types of trading I am involved in.

As I mentioned at the outset, I will next post a series of articles to explain the fine details of each trade set-up I use and noted above.

I also highly recommend taking in our regular trading webinars and most specifically the mid day trade and chart set-up reviews.

Repetition breads success. Repetition provides laser focused trading skills that only comes from practice, practice, practice.
