Swing-Trading Strategy Report #342

2018-12-10T08:55:00-05:00December 10, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach I closed out my long position in NFLX for a -0.9% loss on Friday, early in the trading session, and then took a long position in SPXU (short ETF of 3:1 on SPX) for a +3.8% profit. Today, I am entering the day 100% cash, and [...]

My Swing Trading Approach I added one long position yesterday that's off to a good start, once the market showed a willingness to bounce and sustain the bounce off of the lows of the day. I will consider adding another long position today should the momentum sustain itself following the [...]

2018-12-06T08:55:00-05:00December 6, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach I closed out my long position in SPXU (3:1 SPX short ETF) on Tuesday afternoon for a 6.3% profit. Sure, it'd be nice to still have it today, with the market gapping much lower, but after a 90 point sell-off on Tuesday, and a day-off in [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #339

2018-12-04T09:00:00-05:00December 4, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach I took a position fading the market's gap up yesterday and held it overnight. Ahead of tomorrow's market closure, I suspect volume will be notably lower, and a willingness to continue pushing the market further into overbought conditions will prove difficult. I won't be overly aggressive [...]

Checking Out Apple and the Fate of Small Caps

2018-10-03T14:59:00-04:00October 3, 2018|

There are some pretty glaring divergences in this market right now (sound familiar?) I thought it would be interesting to show the difference in the charts right now between Apple, (AAPL) which is hitting new all-time highs and breaking out of consolidation today: […]

2018-07-24T09:10:00-04:00July 24, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach I will be looking to add additional tech exposure today as well as raise the stops on my existing, profitable positions. Market has to hold up in the early going though, for me to commit additional funds.  Indicators […]

Swing Trading Strategy Report #248

2018-07-23T08:45:00-04:00July 23, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach Plenty of long positions already in the portfolio. I will look to add 1-2 new long positions today on improved bullishness over last week. Careful not to add additional shares of anything if the market is not willing to commit to a direction.  Indicators [...]

Swing Trading Strategy Report #246

2018-07-19T09:00:00-04:00July 19, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach Good decision on my part not to add any new long positions yesterday, considering the pre-market weakness I’m seeing ahead of the open. If the bulls buy the dip, I may use it as an opportunity to add some more long exposure, but either way, caution [...]

Swing Trading Strategy Report #245

2018-07-18T09:00:00-04:00July 18, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach I am concerned about the breadth in the market as stocks, as a whole, are not rallying with the indices. The T2108 is actually diverging, and should that continue into today, I may hold off adding any new long positions.  Indicators […]

2018-07-17T08:50:00-04:00July 17, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach Tech is weak at the open and the rest of the market is following suit. Unless the dip buyers step in, this may result in a day where it is simply better to remain on the sidelines.   Indicators […]

Swing Trading Strategy Report #243

2018-07-16T08:40:00-04:00July 16, 2018|

My Swing Trading Approach Right now, I have a number of long setups in the portfolio, that I will look to manage the risk in, first and foremost. I’m not opposed to adding more positions to the portfolio, but for now, I am more interested in letting my current positions [...]
