Swing-Trading Strategy Report #498

2019-08-19T09:00:00-04:00August 19, 2019|

My Swing Trading Strategy I added one long position to the portfolio on Friday. Didn’t want to be too aggressive in that area, simply because of the huge and unpredictable gaps in both directions over the last two weeks. Today, we are gapping even higher, and will look to find [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #497

2019-08-16T09:10:00-04:00August 16, 2019|

My Swing Trading Strategy Alright, alright, alright. I closed out my position in SPXU, which again is a 3:1 inverse return of SPX, yesterday for a +3.5% profit. Not bad, but I thought I might come away with a little more than I did. Good thing I closed it though [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #496

2019-08-15T09:00:00-04:00August 15, 2019|

My Swing Trading Strategy Yesterday was a wild open, with the market completely reversing the gains from the day prior, I sold my two long positions for small losses, right at the open and avoid taking on additional losses, and took on a position in SPXU which allowed me to [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #495

2019-08-14T09:10:00-04:00August 14, 2019|

My Swing Trading Strategy With yesterday’s pop at the open of the trading session, I was taken out of my position in SPXU for a +2.8% profit. Now the market is looking at reversing yesterday’s gains on the indices and I may be getting right back in to the short [...]

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 [...]

2019-08-13T09:10:00-04:00August 13, 2019|

My Swing Trading Strategy No new positions for me yesterday. I considered shorting the Nasdaq some, but the volume simply wasn’t there in the selling, and I didn’t want to set my self up for a possible short squeeze right from the very start. I currently am shorting the market [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #493

2019-08-12T09:00:00-04:00August 12, 2019|

My Swing Trading Strategy I kept my positions the same heading into the weekend,and means I am still short on this market, and at the very least, the open,should be quite favorable today. I may consider adding more short exposure depending on the price action in the early going, and [...]

Chinese Yuan Bull Flag Break Out – More Upside likely.

2019-08-09T11:18:52-04:00August 9, 2019|

USD/Chinese Yuan chart – this is what’s causing the most pressure for the stock market, and embodies the ongoing trade war. The higher the yuan climbs (i.e. weakens against the US dollar) the more pressure it puts on US producers in their efforts to sell their products to the Chinese [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #492

2019-08-09T09:10:00-04:00August 9, 2019|

My Swing Trading Strategy I stayed in cash most of the day, until then end, when I added a short position to the portfolio. Yesterday’s rally was impressive, but technically, it is doing little to fix the charts that were so heavily damaged last week and again this past Monday. [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #491

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

My Swing Trading Strategy I’m coming into today 100% in cash. Tried shorting the intraday bounce yesterday, but quickly realized that wasn’t going to work, while also booking profits in McDonalds (MCD) too.  To say the least, I am quite suspicious of this market bounce, and highly doubt that the worst [...]

Swing-Trading Strategy Report #490

2019-08-07T09:10:00-04:00August 7, 2019|

My Swing Trading Strategy It was my third straight day without creating a new position. Why is that? Because, I wasn’t going to short the market when it was already down 100 points, and certainly didn’t find enough reason to buy the market yesterday. I’ve managed to profit off of [...]

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 [...]
