    (Penny stocks and lower priced equities hold much higher risk and typically must be given very wide stops)  We trade these as if they are lottery tickets and would only trade in these if it was money we could lose.

  • Stock Trading Plan For Tuesday(EW, UPS, CTCM, ATPG,WFMI, LF ...)

    In last night’s report we mentioned we would like to see the market pullback and would then see how the market reacts.  Since we didn’t have odds in our favor we didn’t want to trade just to be trading, we would rather sit back and let the big players get back in from vacation and follow the smart money.

    First thing Monday morning we saw some nervousness spreading from Europe.  Since we sold off so aggressively this allows us to wait and see if the market gives us a "tell" just like in poker.  This tell would shown by seeing how market participants handle a steep selloff and whether bidders stepped in or not.  Sure enough the bidders stepped in

    Not only did the market rally most of the way back but more importantly the strongest stocks took off and  posted solid gains for the day. Some even hit new highs.  Another important thing to notice was the major indices broke major support at the 50 day moving averages but later bounced and held this level.  This is very bullish action.

    The only negative we saw was today’s rally was on light volume where we would have liked to see heavy volume on a day like today.

    By the end of the day we received market confirmation which is showing us that odds favor a move higher.  Our scans also picked up high probability long setups giving us further confirmation that odds favor higher prices over the short term.


    We are looking to buy the following stocks if they trade to the following prices or higher.  We are looking for gains out of the gate but will give loose stops of 8-10% over the short term.

    BCSI 27.28

    WXCO 11.20

    TOR 8.54

    OCLR 9.86

    EW 66.93

    CTCM 23.01

    ATPG 15.10

    CI 37.07

    AFL 52.47

    AM 20.68

    SLAB 43.43

    WFMI 47.19

    UPS 70.08

    LF 5.72

    AERL 9.04

    JAZZ 16.95

  • Why we bought TBT and made 7% in the past 12 days(TBT,TLT,TBF)

    Why we bought TBT and made 7% in 12 days

    To those who follow TBT and TLT this trade may have been counterintuitive since nobody was saying to get long the TBT except us.

    Everyone has been getting long TLT or short TBT based on the speculation of quantitative easing part 2.  This is a classic case of taking a trade based on what one thinks should happen based on news vs. reading the charts to tell you what odds favor will happen to a stock.

    Regardless of what everyone on the street was saying, we saw TBT putting in a classic bottoming pattern starting back in early October.  At that point it was way too early to pick a bottom and we wanted to see further confirmation from the chart before we got long. 

    Mid October we finally saw a break back above the 50 day moving average line and on heavy volume.  This was one more piece of confirmation showing us that we could have a bottom here. For us this was still a little  too early and we wanted to see if TBT could consolidate above that line turning old resistance into support. 

    On October 26 we saw that we had enough support to finally get long TBT with a reasonable place to put our stops.  If it reversed and sold through recent support on heavy volume we would simply close the trade and move on but odds heavily favored us being correct.

    Here we are 12 days later and we already have a comfortable 7% profit cushion while the rest of the street is about ready to cry uncle and close out their positions since they are on the wrong side of the trade.
