Trading Strategy:

Trading Notes: It's the final week of the quarter, and it has been an absolutely amazing one to say the least, that included massive rally in July and into August, followed by a massive sell-off in late August and all the way through September. Now we are toying with the June lows and I have some bearish exposure still. I won't be adding to that exposure at this point, and have tightened the stop-losses as noted below. That doesn't mean I'm not open to the potential for further downside, that's why I still have some exposure left, but it is a small amount at this point, and watching for potential bounces here as the market hits extreme oversold readings on numerous fronts. I want to play the bounce if the right setups come about. My main focus will be tech and discretionary, as they tend to lead to the upside during dead cat bounces. However, I am holding off providing setups ahead of the market open, because I don't want to take any long positions, unless the market is rallying as a whole, and will need that confirmation in order to enter any individual trade setups. But if the market, sector, and industries all align, with quality trade setups, I will then be looking to play the market bounce.

Trading Strategy:

Long: Home Depot (HD) *See notes below*

  • Ideal Entry: 327.01
  • Stop-loss Option: 314.78
  • Target: 355.00
  • Risk Rating: 2.4

hd 7 21

HD: If my ideal entry is triggered in the first 30 minutes of a trade setup, I will not enter the trade. Instead, I will enter a trade after the first 30 minutes on a break of the highs of the day. This is in order to help avoid any market fades that initially gets me into a trade but immediately sells off on. 

Trade Setups Triggered:

Long Setups: None

Short Setups: None

Setups Waiting to Trigger:

Long Setups: HD

Short Setups: None

Active Trades:

Long: FB

Short: None 

Trades/Setups Removed/Closed:

NT=Never Triggered, 1/2=Half position, 1/3=Third position

Long:  None

Short: None

Trading Notes: 

HD: I raised the trigger price on HD to 327.01 to reflectwhere the breakout level on the inverse head and shoulders pattern is now at. 

Trading Notes: I may add another trade setup if the market shows that it wants to continue building on the gains of Tuesday and Wednesday, especially if $HD doesn't look like it will trigger. Right now, HD still looks like one of the better trade setups available.
