Good Morning Swing Traders and Welcome to the Compound Trading Weekly Swing Trading updates (1 of 3 this week) for the Week of May 15, 2017! $PCRX, $PBR, $CTSH, $FEYE, $TSLA, $NVO, $EWZ, $AGN, $IBB and more …
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Important Service Upgrade Notice: Today we commence the live alert function of our platform for those registered. PLEASE BE AWARE that this will take a few days to fully integrate. Even when fully integrated we cannot guarantee every trade to be alerted (trading can be a busy endeavor and at times it just won’t be possible). To receive alerts be sure we have your email and you have followed our Twitter alert service at @SwingAlerts_CT. I know many have expressed interest in the email only, but the Twitter option is available going forward for those that prefer that. Please bear with us for a few days as we integrate and orientate ourselves to this new function in our daily routines.
This report (1 of 3) focuses on the more recent stocks we have added to our swing trading set-up coverage. They include; $TSLA, $SNAP, $VGX, $AAU, $AMMJ, $AGN, $CTSH, $IBB, $FEYE and $LACDF. New coverage includes: $PCRX, $PBR, and $EWZ.
You can expect the two other reports within in 72 hours of this report and all three hopefully if this week goes better than last to be cycled again (or twice) for this weekly reporting period – it is a matter of staffing our growth.
We are also going to categorize our coverage soon because we are following more than we expected when we first started the service..
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 rely heavily on MACD on daily or weekly (or Stoch RSI and Moving averages) but indicators we are basing our trade entry and exits on are listed with each trade so any user that does even moderate trade management will know when the indicator(s) have turn with or against the trade.
Intra-week you can always DM myself on Twitter or email with specific questions regarding trades you are considering for assistance. But 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 or exit. If nothing else you can always book some coaching time and I’ll assist also (although we are at a point of waiting list for the coaching, at minimum you can get on list or for immediate help as I said please DM or email).
IF WE DON’T GET BACK TO YOU RIGHT AWAY it is usually because we are pressured with deadlines or are trading.

We decided to start covering Tesla because we feel it is out of the woods so to speak. There are many factors, but the bottom line is we are ready to trade this long term. It is revved right now, but it won’t be for long and we expect an entry sooner than later based on the simple charting below.
