Mid Day Trade Set-Ups Webinar Video:

IMPORTANT: This video gets in to detailed trading levels to watch in your swing trades and also had a number of how to use our charting explanations. Very important to review the video and not just the summary below.

Mid Day Member Webinar – Swing Trading Set-ups Summary (from Aug 3 mid day, published August 5, 2018):


Swing Trading Special Earnings Season Report to cover trading the chart set-ups. Mid day review sessions will become the premise for our next major Q3 and Q4 positioning in the stock market.

We are reviewing all one hundred equities we have in coverage on our swing trading platform – all over the next ten days or so for earnings trading season.

Trade alerts are reviewed in this video that triggered today.

Be sure to actually watch this video as the summary below is only for reference and doesn’t give a whole picture for any of the trade set-ups listed.

All quoted support and resistance are approximate.

Published Aug 5, recorded Aug 3, 2018 Mid Day Swing Trading Review.

July 3 and July 10 Swing Trading Regular Reports are referenced in this special earnings report. Members can reference those two reports for charts you may need (or review the video) as all the charting is not included in the report below due to weekly reporting time constraints.

Tickers covered;

OIL $WTI $USOIL – expecting oil to settle in cradle at end of week. Video has quick review of model.

$DXY US Dollar – Up against resistance threatening to move in to its next bullish structure – long over 95.62, PT 96.70.

SP 500 $SPY – over 200 ma on 60 mi, support 278.60, resistance 283.77, that’s your range for Monday.

$SWIR Sierra Wireless – Momentum stock on the day reviewed on video (moving averages). Nearing 50 MA resistance on weekly chart.

$GPRO GoPro – Testing 50 MA on weekly, up 20% on day, last time it used 100 MA for resistance.

$GPRO, earnings, chart

GOPRO (GPRO) Ups 20% on earnings. 50 MA test on weekly intra and backed off at 100 MA last run up $GPRO #swingtrading #earnings

Netflix $NFLX – 337.64 is main structural support. 421.70 is key resistance area. When it got the 200 MA on the hour previously is where we traded the buy sell triggers to the bullish side. 307.44 296.19 283.80 are supports and we’re looking for a long at end of retrace. At 309.70 I am interested in a long would prefer 284.18 could even sell in to 254.91 structural support. Detailed trendlines are discussed in video. Levels quoted will change on trend lines. 368.61 quad wall 377.20 200 MA 380.24 resistance area intra day. If I’m right we’ll get a bounce to the 379 area around 200 MA. Trading plan scenarios are discussed on video with various technical levels to watch.

GSI Technology $GSIT – Other side of earnings, has held previous lows, last report had indicators indecisive and it still is. Trade alert alarm set at 50 MA for a watch.

American Express $AXP – Was going to daytrade it and start sending out trade alerts on AXP but it keeps failing the break out I’m watching on the weekly chart. Indicators are flat and that’s a problem.

Barrick Gold $ABX – Main pivot has worked on charting alerted to members in the swing report. Likely sees the 8s before it bounces. Trading 11s.

Solar ETF $TAN – Same with this chart, the pivot has worked but there isn’t enough to make a bias decision.

TWILIO $TWLO – Daily chart, trending stock. Have to wait for earnings this week to make a decision.

TWILIO, TWLO, earnings, chart, swing, trading

TWILIO (TWLO) Over 20 MA on daily chart with stochastic RSi turned up, watching trend structure in to eanrings in one day. $TWLO #chart #earnings

$WYNN – Wash out territory on the daily. Sent out trade alerts on the $WYNN trade and we did okay but it is difficult to leg in to this trade. Set alarm to be alerted when Stochastic RSI turns.

Metals and Mining ETF $XME – Red line is a large structure weekly chart major pivot on the chart. Over 39.50 is a watch for a long side trade. Slight bullish bias.

Transocean $RIG – Not a clean set-up at this point. Support 11.76, 15.65 is resistance. 10.84, 9.71, 11.50, 7.84 in a sell-off.

Energy Sector Fund $XLE – Trading 75.05 Stochastic coming down on daily, over its previous highs it’s a long but it is really indecisive at this point.

Steel ETF $XLF – Daily SQZMOM on its way down but there is a pinch and coil on the 200 ma, slight edge to the bulls. The weekly chart looks better but it’s coiled around main pivot. It’s a decision area.

$SLX – MACD is coming down on weekly and indicators are indecisive at this point.

United States Steel Corp $X – Bear advantage. MACD on way down on weekly chart and has lost its 50 MA.

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 their math (they have taken me from a 60% hit rate to 80% in my trading – all publicly posted live trades).

Momentum Stocks (Market Open and Intra-Day):

I do trade morning momo stocks, but I do avoid risk – so often I avoid the first 30 minutes (gap and go) and trade momentum stocks later in the day after the wash-out looking for a snap-back. 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 Set-Ups.

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

Morning Stock Watch-Lists for my Favorite Set-Ups:

(1) Pre-Market Gainers Watch-List : $SPI 53%, $MNKD 17%, $EBIO 15% $CCIH $PANW $CIEN $NERV $BOX $GT $PF $HLTH $SONS $CYTX $INFN $ZSAN $DNR $ZIOP $TECD  I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

(2) Pre-market Decliners Watch-List : $NUGT $JNUG $UVXY $EXPR $MBOT $SBGL $SMTC $DGAZ $DWT $HPE  I will update before market open or refer to chat room notices.

(3) Other Watch-List:

(4) Regular Algo Charting Watch-List: Gold $GC_F $GLD, Miners $GDX ($NUGT, $DUST, $JDST, $JNUG), Silver $SLV $SI_F ($USLV, $DSLV), Crude Oil FX: $USOIL $WTI ($UWTI, $DWTI, $USO, $UCO, $CL_F, $UWT, $DWT), Natural Gas $NG_F ($UGAZ, $DGAZ), S & P 500 $SPY $ES_F ($SPXL, $SPXS), US Dollar Index $DXY ($UUP), Volatility $VIX ($TVIX, $UVXY, $XIV)

For new readers, a review of our unlocked posts on our blog would help you get in to the story we are following with the securities listed in this newsletter.

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).

Review of my Chat Room Stock Day Trades for Monday Nov 9, 2016.


Time stamped entries (in permanent archive) copied to this blog in italics (below) are direct live log chat from chat trade room as they occurred (random chat from myself not applicable or other misc chat deleted) .

Chat trade room is also video recorded daily for trade archive (we start sharing videos soon – just one more thing on the to-do list).

In addition to chat, this trade-room has live voice broadcast (that covers in detail what indicators I am looking for in and out off each trade) and has live chart screen sharing right from my monitor to the room with all indicators I am looking at.

Today’s Trades And Alerts: $THC, $XIV, $SPY, $USOIL, $WTI, $X, $VXX, $TVT, $MDCA, $XLF, $CXW, $GEO, $TRIP

We had the snap-back lined up even before the election. Recently the $HTZ low in the room was a big call and then now the election call. Things are good!

I knew all along Trump would win (see Twitter feed – I warned repeatedly)

and I knew markets would rally (again with many warnings).

Why is this important? It’s to brag of course… no actually… it’s called being a good trader. That’s what we do and the idiots leading the sheep around with all their bullsh*t really start to piss me off lol. Time to say it straight – if you’re going to be a good trader you need to see around the corner (this GPS instead of what you see out your windshield). Very important for the newer traders to think on that – beyond getting tooled up with technicals and indicators and knowing how to size trades and cutting fast and actually studying and learning and reviewing previou trades etc… knowing what markets are going to do in advance is critical to your survival.

I’m not going to spend much time review the below…. the premarket today is really active and I want to be prepared for the next week of trading – big opportunities here. And I’ll try and get Tuesday’s Post Market done sometime soon too (lots of lessons to reveiw there). We start on intensive charting and algo trading Monday so I’ll try and get caught up this weekend.
