Tough Sledding Out There For Bullish Trade Setups

2018-11-19T14:22:25-05:00November 19, 2018|

Taking on new long setups today is a torturous prospect that should be avoided.  Despite this being a post about so-called ‘bullish’ trading opportunities, I have actually only one position in the portfolio and that is with SPXU which happens to be an inverse ETF on SPX to the tune [...]

Short Setups If Yesterday Was A Dead-Cat Bounce

2018-11-13T14:00:52-05:00November 13, 2018|

Swing-trading short this market may not be done and over just yet.  I closed my position in SPXU (3:1 inverse of SPX) for almost a 6% profit in the Splash Zone yesterday as well as another 2% from a QQQ short. Based on the price action overnight, I thought the [...]

Short Setups In Case The Midterms Get Messy

2018-11-06T14:55:47-05:00November 6, 2018|

Market has bounced off of the lows of last Monday and all seems to be good in the world again. However, we have a nasty mid-term elections today, and the results will be announced after the market closes and throughout the night. So the possibility for a volatile overnight trading [...]

Short setups in case this is another fake bounce

2018-10-23T15:35:38-04:00October 23, 2018|

This was a nice bounce for the bulls off the lows of the day…. really nice.  I didn’t see it happening to this degree. I was stopped out of both my long positions early on, but I quickly got back in one of them, and then added another. So I [...]

Bullish Setups For The Not So Weary

2018-10-22T15:11:38-04:00October 22, 2018|

This is a tough market, no doubt, and while conditions are quite oversold, there has been a lack of a bounce with the equities.  My watch list has about 20 less stocks than what it has been over the past few months. My objective right now, considering current market conditions, [...]

What Swing-Trades Should You Target If This Market Bounces?

2018-10-10T13:16:11-04:00October 10, 2018|

SPX has shaved 50 points off the market today, and could see more, but this kind of extreme sell-off hasn’t been seen in quite sometime, and follows four days of selling before.  Plenty of stocks are seeing prices that are 15-20% lower than they were earlier this month. However, I [...]

Short Swing-Trading Setups Under The Bull’s Radar

2018-10-09T15:13:25-04:00October 9, 2018|

The bears are seriously squandering an unbelievable opportunity to squash the bulls and inject a fresh round of fear in this market.  Instead, the bulls are showing resilience at the 50-day moving average and not giving a rip about the previous three days of selling.  […]
