‘Don’t Count The Bears Out Just Yet’ Watch-List

2019-08-20T12:10:41-04:00August 20, 2019|

This three day rally the market has been on has been good, but it may not last.  Let’s face it, any sell-off will have a 3-day rally in it, so the fact that SPX traded higher the three previous trading sessions doesn’t mean much to be completely honest. Yeah, I [...]

Short Setup Watch-List for the Week

2019-08-13T15:30:41-04:00August 13, 2019|

And just like that, the trade war was won again.  Another day, another headline. The Bulls struck back at the market open with a massive surge higher following favorable trade war headlines. I could get in the details of it here, but honestly you’ve probably already read about it somewhere [...]

Short Setups for the End of this Dead-Cat Bounce

2019-08-06T15:30:41-04:00August 6, 2019|

Volume has returned and the Trade War with China has made shorting stocks great again! Sure get excited about the dip buying today, but under the surface this market rally is anything but impressive. Breadth is okay, but with the walloping the market took yesterday, if this was a bottom [...]

Short Setups for the Bears Ahead of the FOMC Statement

2019-07-30T14:20:41-04:00July 30, 2019|

One of the dullest summer months you’ll ever see.  First few days of July were okay, heck there, was even a four day stretch in the middle that was quite interesting. But these past eleven trading sessions have been some of the most boring trading sessions you’ll ever see. We’re [...]

Some Solid Fading Trade Setups On My Watch-List

2019-07-23T12:10:41-04:00July 23, 2019|

This summer volume is driving me crazy.  Trading less is the best thing you can do in this market. So far this month I have made about twelve trades, and about half of those, I wouldn’t mind having back, as the doldrums of summer trading is in full swing.  [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #423

2019-04-23T09:00:00-04:00April 23, 2019|

My Swing Trading Strategy I added one new position yesterday, while taking a loss in Hewlett Packard (HPQ). The breadth was horrible, with NYSE declining issues leading the way by a 17:11 margin. It is never a good sign when the Nasdaq 100 makes new all-time highs, while the number [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #413

2019-04-08T09:10:00-04:00April 8, 2019|

My Swing Trading Strategy One new trade was added on Friday, but I stayed put the rest of the day. I sold my position in Netflix (NFLX) for a +1.1% profit. Today the market is opening lower, so it will be important that any weakness can be contained and kept [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #412

2019-04-05T09:10:00-04:00April 5, 2019|

My Swing Trading Strategy I added two new swing-trades to the portfolio after stopping out of Square (SQ) for a +0.2% profit while also taking a hit in Roku (ROKU) for a loss. I may look to add another setup to the portfolio today – that remains to be seen.  [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #411

2019-04-04T09:10:00-04:00April 4, 2019|

My Swing Trading Strategy I added one additional trade to the portfolio, but the market still showing a low volume readout following Monday’s rally. I may add one additional trade to the portfolio today as well, depending on the strength of the market.   Indicators Volatility Index (VIX) – Spent all of [...]
