Swing Trading Strategy Report #203

2018-05-17T09:00:00-04:00May 17, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach I’m continuing with my cautious approach to the market right now. In the pre-market, the futures are slipping a little bit, so I’ll wait to see whether the market can bottom and rally higher. I don’t expect to add more than 1-2 new positions today, while [...]

Swing Trading Strategy Report #202

2018-05-16T09:10:00-04:00May 16, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach Playing it cautious yesterday – added one additional play on the dip yesterday, but I am sitting on 80% cash, and if the market cannot rebound today, I will look to keep it that way today. Short plays at this juncture looks like a trap with [...]

2018-05-15T09:00:00-04:00May 15, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach Good chance I will be looking to sit on my hands today, unless the dip buyers step in and aggressively buy up this market. Raise my stops to protect profits, and wait for an opportunity to present itself.  Indicators […]

Swing Trading Strategy Report #200

2018-05-14T09:00:00-04:00May 14, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach I am willing to add a new position to the portfolio today, but I have to be extremely “choosy” with my opportunities here, because the market is overbought, and I have little desire to add more exposure at the tail end, before seeing a normal market [...]

Swing Trading Strategy Report #162

2018-03-20T08:43:00-04:00March 20, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach I am 100% cash at the moment, but will give the market some time this morning to determine the direction it wants to take. I will follow the trend of the market today and trade accordingly, while keeping my exposure small for now.  Indicators [...]

Swing Trading Strategy Report #161

2018-03-19T09:10:00-04:00March 19, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach With weakness in the market this morning, I will be looking to manage risk to the long side, while possibly positioning myself to short the market, if necessary.  Indicators […]

Swing Trading Strategy Report #160

2018-03-16T09:10:00-04:00March 16, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach The market has yet to provide any favorable trading conditions this week. Staying light and patient here, is the name of the game, and what I plan on doing today until the market gives us something more definitive.  Indicators […]

I Reduced My Long Exposure Some Yesterday

2017-07-26T08:00:00-04:00July 26, 2017|

Yesterday’s rally didn’t quite seem there was a great deal of conviction behind it. Perhaps with the Fed set to release its FOMC Statement today, we’ll get the market to provide us with a decent size move. Over the past four trading sessions, the market has been rather quiet.  [...]

The Pullback That Never Was

2017-07-25T08:45:00-04:00July 25, 2017|

3 days of selling of less than one point per day That is what SPX has averaged over the course of the last three days when it finished lower each day - less than one measily point. For the bears that has to be infuriating.  I don't blame them - [...]

The End of a Long Streak for the Nasdaq

2017-07-24T09:12:00-04:00July 24, 2017|

I'm not a big fan of streaks when it comes to stocks I mean it is nice while it lasts, but like any financial instrument that is rallying, eventually there needs to be a pullback and on Friday you got one with a whopping 0.04% pullback on the Nasdaq.  How [...]

Today’s Trading Plan: Direction From Here

2016-12-15T09:04:22-05:00December 15, 2016|

Technical Analysis: The Federal Reserve raised interest rates yesterday by a quarter point. Initially the S&P 500 (SPX) tried to rally on the news but quickly gave up its gains on the day to finish 0.8% down on the day.  SPX also managed to close below its 5-day moving average for [...]

Pullback Scenarios for Oil

2016-04-25T14:15:32-04:00April 25, 2016|

Alright folks – I have been following $USO and the price of crude very closely of late.  I’m of the belief that crude is ready to drop – another 5-6% this week, and in the process, allow for those who took the short set up at recent highs, a great [...]
