    We had a heavy volume move lower on Friday after the INTC and JPM earnings reports.  We always say that it's not the news but the reaction to the news that is imprtant. Since we had this heavy volume selloff  this could be day 1 of a larger selloff. Nobody knows for sure but we are seeing some signs of this market cracking.  If this is the case we will keep closing our remaining open positions that aren't acting properly and will not be initiating any new positions for another day or so.

    Here is the list of stocks we closed out on Friday January 15th. We  show a % gain of the full move from our entry point to illustrate the maximum percent return possible while the trade was still open.  We also show the rough estimate of the percent the trade was up on the date the positions were closed.

      Our primary goal is to give our subscribers a list of stock setups with a high probability of an above average move over the next few days. Our service gives out the stock symbols, the price level the stock setup triggers at and updates on how we would manage the trade once the trade triggers.  You can apply your own trade management  but we encourage our subscribers to take profits on the way up and move their stops to breakeven to protect their downside.  Email us with any questions

  • NVDA is still running and up 36% from our Oct 13 entry point. Could hit $18 area but will most likely take a breather there
    Dec 7, 2010
  • Liking our DIN setup from this morning. Will look to lock in a quick 2 points on 1/2 positions and move our stops to breakeven to let it run
