Trading Plan / Watch Lists. Morning Momentum / Gaps / News / PR / IPO / SEC Filings / Earnings Stocks on Watch: 

Friday Jan 18 – Mid day review will be looking at Swing Trade entry points. Crude oil has been a great week, don’t miss the post from last night – important details for daytrading crude oil. Same guidance per below from recent.

Wednesday Jan 16 – Holding DWT short in to EIA today. Post EIA expect us to be in active in to time cycle peak mid May now. Positions in swings expected between Friday afternoon and Monday premarket to start. Oil still bullish, was looking for more of a pull back but in oil you never know. EIA report today should set the tone for that pullback or not decision. NatGas trade I seem to have missed executing on. Volatility on high watch here, if oil sells off I will be short OIL, TVIX short and SPY short will all be in play short term. Dollar could spike too so I may long it short term, it is holding its 200 MA. Per previous I would then expect to flip on all those positions. It would be ideal for this to happen now in this timing because entries in equities would be lower in this scenario. We shall see.

Monday Jan 14 – Earnings season starts, looking for my swing trade set-ups to develop as we get in to the season. Machine trade model for oil posted to Discord private member server that has a channel we are watching to confirm possible reversal in trend (up). VIX and $SPY on high watch with earnings season starting. May have missed my NatGas $UGAZ long I was talking about taking. $DXY US Dollar near 200 MA support test on daily, also on watch and VIX near lower Bollinger band, $TVIX on watch.

Citi $C up a bit premarket (reported earnings), but only .65% off in premarket. On watch today per swing trading report released this morning.

See more recent premarket reports for more of my possible set-ups.

Friday Jan 11 –

On watch: Looking for a buy side signal as close to 52.60 (in crude oil) as possible for a price target of 53.52 today. Bullish scenario on FX USOIL WTI traded on CL.

We have been looking for a pull back in oil for a number of reasons (watch mid vids and reporting)… anyway, in classic oil style we have not got much of any pull backs, HOWEVER, if you review the 240 minute model you will see a time cycle peak around Jan 14, 2019 that isn’t huge but big enough to potentially cause a pull back BETWEEN TODAY and next Wednesday. This would give me opportunity to add to the DWT short position (at oil support after pull back), at start of pull back take a long VIX, long Natural Gas, short SPY or QQQ, long dollar, long possibly Bitcoin, Gold, Silver and then when oil bounces reverse all those trades.

The machine trading will now get more aggressive as the EPIC oil model is finally normaliziing after holiday trade anomalies (the software triggers on the chart, so the structure of the chart s important).

Thanks for your patience with the reporting, we’re on it, we just got in deep with the oil anomalies and this possible turn. We need to have a structured oil plan for the rest of the trading in equities ad algorithms to find the core of the move.

Swing trading reports are near done and should be flowing out within 24 hours, EPIC report also and in to next week all the other algorithms.

Trade Set-ups, Alerts, Charts & Reports. Recent / Current Holds, Open and Closed Trades:

Refer to date at top left of each chart (charts can be carried forward for some time). Trade alerts and stock chart set-ups should be traded decision to decision process – when trade set-up fails cut position fast. Leg in to winners at key resistance and support (at retracement or breach) and exit losers fast based on technical support and resistance. Not all set-ups work, the purpose of technical analysis is to provide a framework to trade (chart structure enables a trader to set stops where a trade has failed or leg in to winners and trim winners). Purpose of trade alerts is to bring awareness of a trade set-up in play but you have to execute the trade based on your trading strategy (which should be harnessed in your rules based process).

If you are new to our trading service you should review recent blog posts, the Compound Trading YouTube Channel and at minimum our algorithm Twitter feeds because they do tell a story in terms of the market and how the inflections of the market determine our day to day trading. You will notice the algorithmic modelling has been undeniably accurate with many time-frames (intra-day, weeks and months out) so I myself have learned to respect the math (they have taken me from a 60% hit rate to 80%+ all publicly posted live trade alerts).

Momentum Stocks (Market Open and Intra-Day):

I do trade morning momo stocks, but I do avoid much of the day trading risk (preferring to daytrade only what is structurally set-up also on the swing trade side and to my advantage in the algorithmic model charting). I often avoid the first 30 minutes (gap and go) and trade momentum stocks or structured (per explanation in previous sentence) stocks later in day after a wash-out looking for a snap-back trade that can possibly also become a strong swing or longer term trade that I can leg in to. Just prior to open and shortly after open I post momentum stocks to the trade chat room (and Twitter and Stocktwits if I have time).

Some of my Favorite Intra-day Trading Set-Ups:

(1) Momentum Stock Wash-Outs for Snap Back, (2) Bad News Wash-outs on Stocks with High Institutional Ownership, (3) Getting on the Right Side of a Trend Change and scaling in my position and (4) Our Algorithm Charting Model Set-Ups.

The momentum stocks (from previous days and morning trade) I continue to watch through the day for indicators that allow a trade.

Free scanners to find momentum stocks that you can easily review charts of for indicators that bring probability of your trade being successful up considerably. These are not useful for first 30 minute market open gap and go type plays (you need a good momentum scanner, level 2, and best to have hot-keys for the first 30 mins of gap and go trading)… but are very useful for intra day scalping and swing trading (start with trending stocks and then look at indicators intra for simple set-ups – study scan study scan study scan).

Recent Educational Articles / Videos:

I get a lot of Questions on How to Trade our Structured Chart Models, this video has 5 min starter explanation at 1:00 min-6:00 min. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrXbE7lojAg&t=3s … – Fibonacci Trend-lines, Trading structure/quads, Price targets, Main support resistance (buy sell triggers), Time cycles, Moving averages, Trading trims/adds.

Trading Plan / Watch Lists. Morning Momentum / Gaps / News / PR / IPO / SEC Filings / Earnings Stocks on Watch: 

October 18 – I will continue chewing around the edges of this crude oil sell-off at support areas for a reversal to the retracement and try and get a decent short position also when I can at upside resistance. Serious, serious pressure here in oil trade BUT support areas for possible reversal are starting to hit now on various charting time-frames and structures – BUT that doesn’t mean it will reverse. It reverses when it reverses, trade the indicators not bias.

Notes per recent remain:

Watching NFLX, SQ, ROKU, SHOP, FEYE very close right now and swinging them all. TSLA trade yesterday went great, still holding 25% on the swing side. Today is all about OIL with EIA.

PSTG has an upgrade I’m watching also.

I am leaning toward equity markets possibly holding up in to end of Oct early Nov, Gold Silver Crypto likely pressure in to that time frame, Oil likely pressure in to that time frame and VIX also. And then end of Oct early Nov that should switch.

This is a leaning bias – a general outlook. However, I do see significant risk that could trigger volatility at any time here. But generally equity markets should hold to that late Oct early Nov with VIX GOLD SILVER OIL under pressure and then the opposite should turn toward mid Dec time cycle peak. See the most recent oil trading strategies video.

I know I’ve been promising the remaining model reports for some time, last night we ran the machine trading tests on EPIC and it is working so I can leave the staff to that and now start getting the reporting out. The software development part of our biz I have to admit has been a challenge to our time.

It’s difficult to explain in short how complicated software development is with machine trading launch. But we’re learning to manage it. We’re in it to win it – we won’t give up and we’re making serious progress, that’s the bottom line.

Notes per recent remain.

Looking for possible short term sell off in oil with a spike in VIX, Gold, Silver and then markets should levitate for short term bringing VIX Gold Silver Crypto soft and then reversal again and again and rinse and repeat to mid December 2018 minimum.

Notes per recent…. this remains.

Time cycle dates expiring in markets for big moves…. started end of July, next Oct 10, Nov 11, mid Dec big in to Q1 19. Distributing trading models starting tonight for time frames in expectation for #Oil, #Gold, #Silver, #Bitcoin, #SP500, #Volatility, #USD It’s big, watch.

Further to that public Twitter post, over next two quarters I expect the equity markets to continue under serious pressure in to rates, after a technical retracement oil to skyrocket unless Trump can get a handle on the price somehow (trying with Saudi’s now), Dollar likely to spike hard for some time then fall off a cliff, volatility to increase, Gold and Silver get up and going soon and Crypto to fly. That’s my bias, thesis, trading plan in to next two quarters. Timing will be key. All of our reporting will reflect this near term and will also focus on key swing trading set-ups within themes.

Notes from last trading day (Friday) premarket:

TESLA on watch in lower area of recent range, likely take a short term swing trade in TSLA today – long.

Gold, Silver and others I have now and I’m doing final edits. To be distributed over next day or two. Letting the set-ups firm up and start trading them again possibly as of Sunday night futures.

Likely start trading Bitcoin XBTUSD and VIX in to next week now also in to mid Dec time cycle.

SPY got a bump in premarket with jobs numbers, as with others above likely trading that aggressive in to time cycle peak mid Dec also come next week.

Oil in a small pull back but expect bullish trend to continue next week.

Trade Set-up Alerts, Charts & Reports. Recent / Current Holds, Trade Alerts, Open and Closed Trades:

Please refer to the date at top left of each chart (charts are often carried forward for some time). Trade alerts and stock chart set-ups should be traded as decision to decision process – when the trade set-up fails cut your position fast. Leg in to the winners at key resistance and support (at retracement or breach) and exit the losers fast based on technical support and resistance. Not all set-ups work, the purpose of technical analysis is to provide the framework for your trade (the chart structure enables the trader to set stops where a trade is a failed trade and leg in to winners and trim winners per the chart). The purpose of trade alerts is to bring awareness of the trade set-up in play but you have to execute the trade based on your trading strategy that should be harnessed in your rules based process.

#Gold Prices Flat on Hawkish Fed Minutes –

If you are new to our trading service you should review recent blog posts, the Compound Trading YouTube Channel and at minimum our algorithm Twitter feeds because they do tell a story in terms of the market and how the inflections of the market determine our day to day trading. You will notice the algorithmic modelling has been undeniably accurate with many time-frames (intra-day, weeks and months out) so I myself have learned to respect the math (they have taken me from a 60% hit rate to 80%+ all publicly posted live trade alerts).

Momentum Stocks (Market Open and Intra-Day):

I do trade morning momo stocks, but I do avoid much of the day trading risk (preferring to daytrade only what is structurally set-up also on the swing trade side and to my advantage in the algorithmic model charting). I often avoid the first 30 minutes (gap and go) and trade momentum stocks or structured (per explanation in previous sentence) stocks later in day after a wash-out looking for a snap-back trade that can possibly also become a strong swing or longer term trade that I can leg in to. Just prior to open and shortly after open I post momentum stocks to the trade chat room (and Twitter and Stocktwits if I have time).

Some of my Favorite Intra-day Trading Set-Ups:

(1) Momentum Stock Wash-Outs for Snap Back, (2) Bad News Wash-outs on Stocks with High Institutional Ownership, (3) Getting on the Right Side of a Trend Change and scaling in my position and (4) Our Algorithm Charting Model Set-Ups.

The momentum stocks (from previous days and morning trade) I continue to watch through the day for indicators that allow a trade.

These are not useful for first 30 minute market open gap and go type plays (you need a good momentum scanner, level 2, and best to have hot-keys for the first 30 mins of gap and go trading)… but are very useful for intra day scalping and swing trading (start with trending stocks and then look at indicators intra for simple set-ups – study scan study scan study scan).

That’s my bias, thesis, trading plan in to next two quarters. Timing will be key. All of our reporting will reflect this near term and will also focus on key swing trading set-ups within themes.

Notes from last trading day (Friday) premarket:

TESLA on watch in lower area of recent range, likely take a short term swing trade in TSLA today – long.

Gold, Silver and others I have now and I’m doing final edits. To be distributed over next day or two. Letting the set-ups firm up and start trading them again possibly as of Sunday night futures.

Likely start trading Bitcoin XBTUSD and VIX in to next week now also in to mid Dec time cycle.

SPY got a bump in premarket with jobs numbers, as with others above likely trading that aggressive in to time cycle peak mid Dec also come next week.

Oil in a small pull back but expect bullish trend to continue next week.

Trade Set-up Alerts, Charts & Reports. Recent / Current Holds, Trade Alerts, Open and Closed Trades:

Please refer to the date at top left of each chart (charts are often carried forward for some time). Trade alerts and stock chart set-ups should be traded as decision to decision process – when the trade set-up fails cut your position fast. Leg in to the winners at key resistance and support (at retracement or breach) and exit the losers fast based on technical support and resistance. Not all set-ups work, the purpose of technical analysis is to provide the framework for your trade (the chart structure enables the trader to set stops where a trade is a failed trade and leg in to winners and trim winners per the chart). The purpose of trade alerts is to bring awareness of the trade set-up in play but you have to execute the trade based on your trading strategy that should be harnessed in your rules based process.

If you are new to our trading service you should review recent blog posts, the Compound Trading YouTube Channel and at minimum our algorithm Twitter feeds because they do tell a story in terms of the market and how the inflections of the market determine our day to day trading. You will notice the algorithmic modelling has been undeniably accurate with many time-frames (intra-day, weeks and months out) so I myself have learned to respect the math (they have taken me from a 60% hit rate to 80%+ all publicly posted live trade alerts).

Momentum Stocks (Market Open and Intra-Day):

I do trade morning momo stocks, but I do avoid much of the day trading risk (preferring to daytrade only what is structurally set-up also on the swing trade side and to my advantage in the algorithmic model charting). I often avoid the first 30 minutes (gap and go) and trade momentum stocks or structured (per explanation in previous sentence) stocks later in day after a wash-out looking for a snap-back trade that can possibly also become a strong swing or longer term trade that I can leg in to. Just prior to open and shortly after open I post momentum stocks to the trade chat room (and Twitter and Stocktwits if I have time).

Some of my Favorite Intra-day Trading Set-Ups:

(1) Momentum Stock Wash-Outs for Snap Back, (2) Bad News Wash-outs on Stocks with High Institutional Ownership, (3) Getting on the Right Side of a Trend Change and scaling in my position and (4) Our Algorithm Charting Model Set-Ups.

The momentum stocks (from previous days and morning trade) I continue to watch through the day for indicators that allow a trade.

Free scanners to find momentum stocks that you can easily review charts of for indicators that bring probability of your trade being successful up considerably. These are not useful for first 30 minute market open gap and go type plays (you need a good momentum scanner, level 2, and best to have hot-keys for the first 30 mins of gap and go trading)… but are very useful for intra day scalping and swing trading (start with trending stocks and then look at indicators intra for simple set-ups – study scan study scan study scan).

Compound Trading Swing Trade Report Sunday October 14, 2018 (Part A).

Swing Trading Signals and Stock Picks In this Issue: FEYE, ROKU, SHOP, ARWR, TSLA, AGN, CRON, SQ. 

Email us at info@compoundtrading.com anytime with any questions about any of the swing trades listed below. Or, if we get bogged down private message Curtis in trade room or direct message him on Twitter. Market hours are tough but we endeavor to get back to everyone after market each day.

Notices:

Below is Part A of this special swing trading report covering stocks that we have recently been trading or have been active stocks traded by our members and/or stocks that were recently covered at the Trade Coaching Boot Camp. Basically we are consolidating all the most recent swing trade strategies in to a few reports prior to earnings season kicking in. After this short series of reports we will return to the regular rotational reports and also introduce some themed swing trading reports (we have one for swing trading pot stocks, we are working on a financials report and an energy special report currently). 

Swing trading set-ups in this short series of reports over the few weeks will provide charting and trade signals for the following equities; FEYE, ROU, SHOP, ARWR, TSLA, AGN, CRON, SQ, XBIO, FB, DIS, LEVB, NBEV, NIHD, BZUN, BLDP, AMD, OSI, CARA, BABA, EDIT, AAPL, NFLX, MTEM, PYX, XXII, PRQR, BOX, GTHX, SSW, HIIQ, ATHM, ESPR, CALA, APVO, MOMO, GSUM, CLDR, FIT among others. If you have any swing trading charting requests send them to us on email. The first of the trading set-ups in this series are included below.

Until mid July 2018 we distributed one swing trading report (1 of 5 in rotation) with a mandate being one report per week on average cycling the five reports that include over one hundred equities every five weeks (approximately).

Commencing July 2018 we switched up our swing trading service to also include special reports for earnings season, special trade set-ups, and swing trade alerts direct to your email inbox. Per above, soon we will also be producing themed reports.

When managing your trades with the weekly reports keep in mind that you will have to invest an hour or two a week to check the indicators mentioned for buy and sell triggers. I was asked recently why we do not usually (although we do sometimes) include precise entry and exit points. The reason is simple, they don’t work – those services have terrible results.

Swing trading success, even with a service, does require “some” maintenance on the part of the user, although the new live alert service will take much of that burden off the user as we know many of our users have busy lives. It is the indicators lining up that signal a trade long entry or an exit. In our case we rely heavily on the natural trading structure of the financial instrument; including the MACD on daily or weekly, Stochastic RSI, Moving Averages, trading boxes, quadrants, Fibonacci support and resistance, trend lines, trajectory / trend of trade, time-cycles and more.

Indicators we base trade entry and exits on are at times listed with each trade posted so any user that does even moderate trade management will know when the indicator(s) have turn with or against the trade (here again it is wise to have at least a basic understanding of trading structures because you need to be able to respond to your own trading rules based process).

It is critical that you attend to the maintenance of your signals at least once a week if not twice and set stops and preferably alarms so that intra-week you can enter / exit or add / trim as required.

If you need help with rules based swing trading technical analysis, a specific trading plan (entries, exits, adds or trims) or with a simple understanding of proper structured charting and/or trading structured set-ups you can book some trade coaching time and we will assist you with your trade planning as needed. You may find after a few hours of trade coaching that this is all you need to become a proficient profit side trader.

We can schedule private coaching online, you can attend a trading boot-camp (online or in person) or order the downloadable recordings of a recent trading boot-camp or master class series (each about 20 hours of training per event). For any of those options email us for details.

Below is a primer if you know none or very little about proper chart structures:

“I get a lot of Questions on How to Trade our Structured Chart Models, this video has 5 min starter explanation at 1:00 – 6:00 min”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrXbE7lojAg&t=3s … – Fibonacci Trend-lines, Trading structure/quads, Price targets, Main support resistance (buy sell triggers), Time cycles, Moving averages, Trading trims/adds.

Intra-week you can DM myself on Twitter (@curtmelonopoly), visit me on Discord (http://discord.gg/2HRTk6n) and private message me or email me (info@compoundtrading.com) with specific questions regarding trades you are considering. You can also visit the main trading during the mid-day review and ask questions by text in the chat area of the room.

IF WE DON’T GET BACK TO YOU RIGHT AWAY it is usually because we are pressured with reporting deadlines or are in a trading session.

Current Swing Trading Signals and Stock Charts.

FIREEYE (FEYE) Trading 16.68, on 200 MA support, mid quad key support 16.22, with MACD turned down – key bearish signal. #swingtrade $FEYE

Key resistance trade signal is at 19.24 on this chart with key support trade signal for FEYE at 13.05. The MACD turned down on the daily chart is a bearish signal but price is above 200 MA and above primary support for the range (mid quad horizontal Fibonacci line) at 16.18.

Under 16.18 is a short to a possible price target of 13.05 Dec 3, 2018.

Above 16.18 is a long to a possible price target of 19.32 Dec 3, 2018.

Indecisive trade will see 16.18 range Dec 3, 2018.

No current trader bias for the FEYE trade set-up – indecisive, but recent trajectory does suggest 19.32 Dec 3, 2018 as long as price holds 16.18 and 200 MA.

FIREEYE (FEYE) Trading 16.68, on 200 MA support, mid quad key support 16.22, with MACD turned down – key bearish signal. #swingtrade $FEYE

ROKU (ROKU) trading 60.41, MACD turned down bearish signal, above 200 MA with support 58.20, price targets in report $ROKU #swingtrading

The MACD turned down is a considerably bearish signal, the 200 MA on ROKU chart is at 45.69 so it could easily see some considerable downside. However, the algorithmic channel support (first possible, at yellow uptrending line) is at 53.82 and trade recently bounced well off that area. I will be watching the channel support area for a possible trade long pending the general market sentiment near-term.

Near term support is also at 58.20 (mid quad Fibonacci support) and range support (trading box) is at 53.50. Range resistance on ROKU chart is at 63.16.

If downward pressure ensues then 48.49 Oct 30, 2018 time cycle is probable and even 38.40 is possible.

If market sentiment turns up and trade in ROKU turns up then 68.11 is most likely Oct 30 and 78.00 possible but far from probable.

Indecisive trade scenario sees 58.00 range Oct 30, 2018.

No current trade bias, however, as with others (considering the market sell-off last week) I will be watching general market sentiment going forward for a trade either way in ROKU.

ROKU (ROKU) trading 60.41, MACD turned down bearish signal, above 200 MA with support 58.20, price targets in report $ROKU #swingtrading

SHOPIFY (SHOP) Trading under 200 MA under main range pivot support is bearish with channel support test near $SHOP #swingtrading

With earnings in 11 days I am watching SHOPIFY very close here to see how trade handles the prospective algorithmic charting channel support area on chart (yellow up-trending line on chart below). If that line fails 116.22 is probable price target for Jan 10, 2019 swing trade with 92.01 possible and 67.59 price target not likely but there.

In a bullish scenario (a turn above the 200 MA with MACD turned back up on daily chart) targets 166.27 probable and 190.89 in a break-out scenario (not likely but definitely possible if the market sentiment turns risk off again).

The trade signal short is the channel support and the trade signal long is MACD down with 200 MA upside breached.

What Should Investors Expect When Shopify Reports Earnings? $SHOP https://finance.yahoo.com/news/investors-expect-shopify-reports-earnings-190000338.html?.tsrc=rss

The future looks bright for Shopify. As e-commerce continues to capture an even greater percentage of retail, the company is positioned to reap even further gains over the years and decades to come. Investors should take a long-term view, however, as the stock price will continue to be volatile. Brace yourself for the wild ride to continue when the company reports on Oct. 25.

ARROWHEAD PHARMA (ARWR) MACD turned down but over 200 MA and channel support. On watch for adds to trade. $ARWR #swingtrading #tradealerts

I am currently in a swing trade position (starter size) and will look to add to the swing long at the 200 MA support if trade hits that mark this week (I was hoping it was going to hit end of week last week on late Friday afternoon trade but it didn’t quite get there).

If trade breaks the 200 MA to the downside then 8.90 price target is in play for November 28, 2018 time cycle completion (which is also at the algorithm chart model prospective channel support – yellow line on chart).

The most important support trade signal in near term trade (this week) is that trade closed Friday right near the trading box support range in the 12.65 range. If ARWR sees a bounce then 16.25 is in play for Nov 28th.

TESLA (TSLA) At trading box range support EOD Friday, in a bounce it targets 280.34 Nov 20, 2018 $TSLA #swingtrading

MACD on daily chart is turned down, but TESLA stock trades somewhat eradic in normal course of trade. The range is the most important consideration and I have TESLA on high watch for a significant bounce here. The trading range is fairly consistent and as long as maret sentiment doesn’t completely plummet near-term I’ll likely take a trade for a bounce to upper price target at 279.56 Nov 20, 2018, trading at close Friday 258.78.

ALLERGAN (AGN) swing trade couldn’t be going any better, add to long at 200 MA or channel support, trim at resistance points $AGN #swingtrading #chart

With earnings in sixteen days and AGN presenting soon (see news article below), trade near 200 MA support – I will consider adding to my position there if it looks to be holding and pending market sentiment, if not I will surely add at algorithmic charting model channel support on the chart as noted below.

ALLERGAN (AGN) swing trade couldn’t be going any better, add to long at 200 MA or channel support, trim at resistance points $AGN #swingtrading #chart

CRONOS (CRON) above 10.25 buy signal for upside price target, below 8.40 short to price target. $CRON

If trade stays in trading box short at resistance in 10.25 range long at 8.40 range for a bounce in trading box. However, it looks like it could turn here. This is a 240 minute chart and not a daily chart for lower time frame trading.

Also of note, the MACD on 240 min chart just turned back up and the Squeeze Momentum indicator flashed green in last 4 hours of trade on Friday.

SQUARE (SQ) above 74.00 targets 78.64 next. Resistance at 76.27 and 82.27 if in upside trade. $SQ #swingtrade #tradealerts

I really like this trade set-up long again. If markets get momentum this could see a decent upside return. Careful with the resistance areas noted and also note that the chart model is “rough” and needs some work, but good enough to provide signals for an upside swing trade here.

Recent Educational Articles / Videos:

I get a lot of Q’s on How to Trade our models, this vid has 5 min explanation at 1:00 min-6:00 min. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrXbE7lojAg&t=3s … – Fib Trendlines, Trading structure/quads, Price targets, Main support resistance (buy sell triggers), Time cycles, Moving averages, Trading trims/adds.

Trading Plan / Watch Lists. Morning Momentum / Gaps / News / PR / IPO / SEC Filings / Earnings Stocks on Watch: 

SQUARE (SQ) swing trade is performing well in continuation of trajectory on chart – premarket trading 101.20 near 102.00 resistance from our 89.00 entry. Trim in to resistance add to trade above (if you are trimming at each resistance). The updated chart is below. 

Per last week: The Square $SQ trade from yesterday is going well, trading 96.30 in premarket today with a swing trade entry at 89.00 and looking for more legs in this trade (see Square $SQ feature post and video).

Oil trading plan is similar to last week, I am looking for a trade at / near bottom channel support. Last week it did hit near lower channel support at 71.85 FX USOIL WTI at around 8:30 AM Sept 28 and then took off (no execution), currently trading near upper channel resistance. I will do more day trading again also with oil.

Per last week: Today is EIA Petroleum Report day at 10:30 AM. Looking for a large swing trade in oil (see feature report sent to members last night).

DISNEY (DIS) swing trade doing well, in to resistance area pre-market 117.17, trim in to add above $DIS. Good timing on this trade.

XENETIC BIOSCIENCES (XBIO) held a key support area on Friday. On watch for a trade over 3.25 $XBIO. Will only consider a smaller size but will consider another trade. This could be a bottoming pattern setting up. Yet to be seen though.

Bitcoin, the bottoming pattern continues, convinced that 5800 area is most probable bottom (alerted numerous times prior to it trading anywhere near there). Bottom line is that we’re expecting to trade it actively soon going in to Dec 24 time cycle peak and in to 1st Q 2019 aggressive.

Below are some trade position notes from recent weeks if you didn’t catch them;

Still watching the week set-up, I expect a significant oil size trade (swing and intra-day) very near, in a new Disney $DIS trade, the $XBIO set-up was awesome and there’s a number of others we are working on.

BTW the Bitcoin $BTC trade will be big soon, the charting is setting up, we will be updating members on the inflection move prior. We expect up, but we will be alerting the BTC set-up for both scenarios.

Have a swing trade in $CRON  that is going well, trimming and adding per chart model that has been a great help.

Have a swing trade in $BABA under water on 1 1/10 sizing entry, watching for adds.

Really like $FB snap-back set-up here, watching the 50 MA overhead on the chart model, it keeps paying every time we trade it.

Also really like $NFLX set-up here, it has been a regular and consistent pay day with the simple chart model dialed in.

Oil I’ve missed a few sweet spots this week but continue to watch, not every trader can be on top of every instrument 100% of the time (I keep telling myself haha). Anyway, I’ll start hitting it out of the park again with patience. Hopefully today a set-up on the EPIC model allows some size.

SHOPIFY $SHOP has been a great set-up for a possible break upside the quad time cycle peak, support has held well for traders that have taken longs on the set-up. It could blow through the top of that quad on the time cycle peak coming, if it does it will be a significant extension up.

$NBEV trade has been fantastic, paying the bills for sure. Chart resistance and support areas worked well. Trade alert was good on NBEV.

$GTHX is a tad wild but managed well it has been a good trade for us.

And $AGN of course continues to pay on large sizing with trims and adds from the charting and trade plans published over last number of weeks.

Watching $BKRS for a long, looks decent for a swing trade.

Market Observation:

Markets as of 7:18 AM: US Dollar $DXY trading 95.13, Oil FX $USOIL ($WTI) trading 73.42, Gold $GLD trading 1186.12, Silver $SLV trading 14.53, $SPY 292.48 (premarket trade), Bitcoin $BTC.X $BTCUSD $XBTUSD 6573.00 and $VIX trading 11.8.

Trade Set-up Alerts, Charts & Reports. Recent / Current Holds, Trade Alerts, Open and Closed Trades:

Please refer to the date at top left of each chart (charts are often carried forward for some time). Trade alerts and stock chart set-ups should be traded as decision to decision process – when the trade set-up fails cut your position fast. Leg in to the winners at key resistance and support (at retracement or breach) and exit the losers fast based on technical support and resistance. Not all set-ups work, the purpose of technical analysis is to provide the framework for your trade (the chart structure enables the trader to set stops where a trade is a failed trade and leg in to winners and trim winners per the chart). The purpose of trade alerts is to bring awareness of the trade set-up in play but you have to execute the trade based on your trading strategy that should be harnessed in your rules based process.

Gerald Celente – Economic Meltdown Worse Than Great Depression Coming

If you are new to our trading service you should review recent blog posts, the Compound Trading YouTube Channel and at minimum our algorithm Twitter feeds because they do tell a story in terms of the market and how the inflections of the market determine our day to day trading. You will notice the algorithmic modelling has been undeniably accurate with many time-frames (intra-day, weeks and months out) so I myself have learned to respect the math (they have taken me from a 60% hit rate to 80%+ all publicly posted live trade alerts).

Momentum Stocks (Market Open and Intra-Day):

I do trade morning momo stocks, but I do avoid much of the day trading risk (preferring to daytrade only what is structurally set-up also on the swing trade side and to my advantage in the algorithmic model charting). I often avoid the first 30 minutes (gap and go) and trade momentum stocks or structured (per explanation in previous sentence) stocks later in day after a wash-out looking for a snap-back trade that can possibly also become a strong swing or longer term trade that I can leg in to. Just prior to open and shortly after open I post momentum stocks to the trade chat room (and Twitter and Stocktwits if I have time).

Some of my Favorite Intra-day Trading Set-Ups:

(1) Momentum Stock Wash-Outs for Snap Back, (2) Bad News Wash-outs on Stocks with High Institutional Ownership, (3) Getting on the Right Side of a Trend Change and scaling in my position and (4) Our Algorithm Charting Model Set-Ups.

The momentum stocks (from previous days and morning trade) I continue to watch through the day for indicators that allow a trade.
