Swing-Trading Strategy Report #360

2019-01-22T09:00:00-05:00January 22, 2019|

My Swing Trading Approach I have three positions currently in the portfolio. All profitable, but will need a pullback to justify adding a new position here. The market is certainly stretched and prime for some profit taking. Playing the dip is the best option here.  Indicators Volatility Index (VIX) - VIX [...]

2019-01-17T08:50:00-05:00January 17, 2019|

My Swing Trading Approach I didn't add any new positions yesterday, and as long as the market is able to hold things together, despite pre-market weakness, I'll probably use today's weakness to add another long position.  Indicators Volatility Index (VIX) - Finally a bullish candle on the VIX yesterday, with a [...]

My Swing Trading Approach I closed out my Short Inverse ETF in SPXU for a loss yesterday, but early on, added Amazon (AMZN) and Square (SQ) to the portfolio. Not sure if I'll be adding anything else today, the market will have to jump back into rally mode for me [...]

2019-01-15T09:00:00-05:00January 15, 2019|

My Swing Trading Approach I added an inverse ETF on the S&P 500 yesterday (SPXU). Slightly underwater, but looking for this market to give back some of these steep gains from the past two weeks. I may add to my position by shorting additional ETFs should a market pullback take [...]

My Swing Trading Approach I haven't added any new positions to the portfolio since Monday, mainly because it was obvious this market was due for a pullback and adding new positions here made zero sense. Use the pullback to find some good trade setups that will naturally bounce should the [...]

2019-01-09T08:50:00-05:00January 9, 2019|

My Swing Trading Approach I didn't add any new positions yesterday, and that may be the case again today, until I can see what this market wants to do with overbought conditions (a rarity these days), and whether the market can consolidate some first.  Indicators Volatility Index (VIX) - Not falling [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #354

2019-01-08T08:30:00-05:00January 8, 2019|

My Swing Trading Approach I added one additional long position to the portfolio. At this point, I don't want force any new trades, and will have to wait for just the right opportunity to add anything new, as the bounce in equities is starting to mature some.  Indicators Volatility Index [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #353

2019-01-07T09:00:00-05:00January 7, 2019|

My Swing Trading Approach I added two new trades on Friday, and will look to add another 1-2 more today should the market show signs it wants to add to the gains. Never trust this market. Volatility swings are wild, and you should expect a change of direction at any [...]

2019-01-03T09:20:00-05:00January 3, 2019|

My Swing Trading Approach I'm not liking the news out of Apple (AAPL) this morning and the impact that it has and will likely have throughout the trading day. With Apple warning you have a new issue for this market to worry and fear, and that is the prospect of [...]

2019-01-02T09:20:00-05:00January 2, 2019|

My Swing Trading Approach It is a new year, and I am 100% cash coming into it. I closed my only two positions out on Friday for a +1.5% profit in AMZN and a +1% profit in AAPL. I don't want to get short right out of the gate, because the risk/reward won't [...]

2018-12-13T09:00:00-05:00December 13, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach I booked my profits in AMZN and NFLX yesterday as the market was starting to pullback. I took +2.5% in NFLX and +1% in AMZN. Right now I am net short on the market, but won't hesitate to get long again, if the conditions merit that.  [...]

2018-12-12T09:00:00-05:00December 12, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach I added two new long positions yesterday and closed NVDA out at $150.95 yesterday for a flat trade. I will be very tentative about adding any new positions today and will let the market play itself out in order to show it can handle a gap [...]
