Swing Trading Strategy: The days of easy trading are but a distant memory now. This is why for the past month or so, I’ve been trying to add short exposure, gradually to the portfolio, and while it didn’t save me completely, it has certainly helped, but still some losses. Overall [...]

Swing Trading Strategy: I took partial profits in a number of positions yesterday including +6% in Thor Industries (THO), +4% in Facebook (FB) and +5% in Coupa Software (COUP). I took a loss in my first foray into the crypto world by trading Grayscare Bitcoin Trust (GBTC). I think it could bounce here, but the [...]

Swing Trading Strategy: Incredible day yesterday as I finally closed out my Virgin Galactic (SPCE) trade at 33.41 for a 77% profit. Really fun trade, followed the plan, and exited when it wouldn’t let me stay any longer. I added one new long position as well as a short position.  [...]

Swing Trading Strategy: Virgin Galactic (SPCE) continues to steal the show, with another large pre-market gap higher. Still long from 18.98, with more than +60% in profits. I closed out the last half of the Apache (APA) for a manageable loss. Some negative news in the pre-market with Apple (AAPL) lowering [...]

Swing Trading Strategy: Trimmed some positions yesterday, that included +15% in Square (SQ), +7% in Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), +2% in Tesla (TSLA) and +3% in Switch (SWCH). I am open to adding more positions to the portfolio this morning, and quite ready for a possible market pullback should it happen.  Indicators [...]

2020-02-13T09:00:00-05:00February 13, 2020|

Swing Trading Strategy: Nothing major happening in my portfolio yesterday, but I did have a number of positions rally hard for me – most notably was the +20% in gains currently in the portfolio for Virgin Galactic (SPCE). Stopped out of a short position Corning (GLW), which annoys me on a [...]

2020-02-12T09:10:00-05:00February 12, 2020|

Swing Trading Strategy: I closed another portion of my Virgin Galactic (SPCE) trade for +11% profit and will ride the remaining position as long as possible. Closed my short position in Dana (DAN) for a 3% loss. I closed Shake Shack (SHAK) out flat – as it just couldn’t push [...]

2020-02-10T20:30:00-05:00February 10, 2020|

Swing Trading Strategy: Great day today. I was spooked out of a little of my Virgin Galactic (SPCE) position perhaps a little too early. I sold a third of my position for a +5% profit. Good, but I would have liked to have booked those profits may a liiiiiiittle bit [...]

Swing-Trading Outlook #590

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

Swing Trading Strategy: I added two new long positions and topped it off with a “just in case” short position for the portfolio. I closed out Steris (STE) for a 1% loss – the stock has literally done nothing for me the past month or so that I have owned it. [...]

2020-02-07T09:00:00-05:00February 7, 2020|

Swing Trading Strategy: Closed my last remaining half of the Splunk (SPLK) trade yesterday at $161.32 for a +9% profit. Also made a nice day-trade in Tesla (TSLA) that I scaled out of for a gains that were as high as +11%. One of my short positions was also stopped out – PNC [...]

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 [...]
