2020-02-06T08:40:00-05:00February 6, 2020|

Swing Trade Approach: Big day for the market yesterday! But for me? Not so much. Software stocks all took a hit across the board, and that had been my bread and butter over the past couple of months. However, I did book +24% in my UBER trade that I had [...]

2020-02-05T09:10:00-05:00February 5, 2020|

Swing Trade Approach: Big day for my long positions – the smaller amount of short positions that I held previously overnight didn’t fair too well, all but one at least. I closed my short on the biotechs (IBB) for a -3% loss. It was a great pattern that was showing [...]

My Short Watch-List: Are You Selling The Rip?

2020-02-04T13:50:00-05:00February 4, 2020|

Remember when Trump was going to put us in World War III with Iran?  Or how about The Trade War would ruin the global economy? Hell, I’m old enough to remember when North Korea was going to kill us all with their nuclear arsenal.  But nothing has us freaked out [...]

2020-02-04T00:40:00-05:00February 4, 2020|

Swing Trade Approach: It was a fairly quiet day of trading for me today. I did add two new trades to the portfolio, have tightened the stops on others, and will be taking profits in other trades in the days ahead, simply because I won’t be holding them through earnings. [...]

My Long Watch-List: Buy The Dip – I Dare You

2020-02-03T14:50:00-05:00February 3, 2020|

The Bulls Are Finding Solace in China’s Market Manipulating Tactics I can’t say that I am, though I have been rather quiet on the trading front today, I did manage to take a flier on a few trades like I am certainly benefiting from today’s action with Sqaure (SQ) rally +6%, and [...]

2020-02-03T08:20:00-05:00February 3, 2020|

Swing Trade Approach: I took some partial positions off the table yesterday which included +6% in ETSY (ETSY), +5% in Splunk (SPLK), +3% in Home Depot (HD), while also cutting a couple of other positions to minimize losses following Friday’s sell-off. Also added some more short exposure to the portfolio as [...]

Swing Trade Approach: Another busy day as I closed Vertex (VRTX) at 232.69 for a +6% profit, Virgin Galactic (SPCE) for a +6% profit, I took some profits in my Square (SQ) trade for a +8% profit, and reduced my exposure in my Spotify (SPOT) trade by taking a portion [...]

2020-01-28T20:40:00-05:00January 28, 2020|

Swing Trade Approach: I closed out the second half of my short position in Walt Disney (DIS) today for a +3% profit. I also added two new long positions while closing out one other long position in Levi Strauss (LEVI) which was one of more bizarre acting stocks that I have traded in [...]

Swing Trade Approach: Whoa! That was quite a day for the stock market. I was stopped out of a few positions right at the open. The big ones being Universal Display Corp (OLED) and Delta (DAL) for a  -6.8% loss and -5.7% loss (Those loser trades don’t deserve being highlighted in bold, I [...]

2020-01-27T00:40:00-05:00January 27, 2020|

Swing Trade Approach: Busy day on Friday. I covered one of my short positions, Nutrien (NTR) at 44.39 for a 6.7% profit. Nice gain for a short position that I have held since November 26th at $47.60. But I didn’t stop there. I sadly closed out one of the more impressive trades [...]

2020-01-23T21:00:00-05:00January 23, 2020|

Swing Trade Approach: I closed out Nuance Communications (NUAN) at $19.82 for a nice +11% profit. I held the stock since before Christmas when I got in at $17.87. Also, I covered my short position in Advanced Auto Parts (AAP) after some crazy call action on the options started to pile [...]

2020-01-23T09:20:00-05:00January 23, 2020|

Swing Trade Approach: I added one long position yesterday, not the best start to the trade, but I also took 1/3 of my position in HD off the table for a +5.2% profit. Still building that balance between long and short positions right now, and not looking to get overly [...]
