Overview and Summary Review of Markets, Chat Room, Algo Calls, Trades and Alerts:
In play today in chat room; $BLKG, $USRM, $BABA, $NG_F, $UWTI
Premarket trading plan (member post) can be found here:
Closed my position in $USRM when it was up near 57% on the day and on $BLKG when it was near 233% on the day. $BLKG low on day was 16 and high was 58 and I closed at 55 for a nice win – held the swing for a few weeks.
My $BABA call and a number of the other swing trading calls are continuing to be home runs, winning is good in this business.
It’s too bad our transcript in the room is not available for the first part of the day (my apologies but we’re learning the platform) because not only was most of the action for the day in the first hour but MarketMaven schooled us all on a morning momentum stock $ESPR – wow what a trade, three adds and closed near the top. Total schooling.
Also our traders were in natural gas $NG_F $UGAZ etc killing that and the other trades on intra and swing trading are all going well for our small group. 2017 has been a great year for the group, I am in the process of compiling the trade P/L of each trader (contacting them one at a time asking if they would be interested). Anyway, the feedback I am getting has been fantastic (in terms of YTD performance) and that has been obvious in the room – but I would like to document it if possible.

Premarket was all about $CURS tanking, $CTMX, $ESPR and a few others.

Algorithmic Chart Modeling Reports / News:
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.
Note-able Stocks Today (via FinViz):
The Markets Looking Forward:
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.
Swing Trading Reports / News:
The quarterly performance report link is above in the intro to this post – we have been killing and below are some of the recent simple swing trading charts.
$BABA from our swing trading platform side sure looked perky today – here’s one of the charts from the swing trading platform updates this past weekend – looks interesting!

Natural gas on fire… I’ll try and get some time to start covering it more closely. On a side note we’re going to start covering emerging markets and USDJPY closer too soon hopefully.
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: The premarket, the market open and the close are all missing from this transcript WHICH WERE THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTS OF THE DAY!!! Especially the market open with a fantastic trade by MarketMaven – total schooling (as I explained above) and Flash shared some of his Swings (which btw have been red hot). So I’m very disappointed to say the least. My excuse is we’re just learning the details of the platform and capturing the transcript has its details. Anyway, we’re on it. We’re also on getting these main traders in the room equipped to run charts and broadcast voice in their trades etc to build out a more robust daily trading video for people that review after market because they work or whatever… we’re on it, we’re getting there. What limited transcript we have is below.
