ULTA long play

I played my very 1st strategy called the "Power Bar Play" after a long time and see how beautifully it plays out. I called out my gap list that I am watching today before the market opened on twitter and stocktwits and check out how I played it so successfully.

Only issue was the stock was way too spready and I wanted to get out of it at the earliest opportunity.

INTU short - fade play

My strategy called fade play when the stock is opening high but opens so much higher that the initial reaction of everyone is to sell the stock creating an initial drop in price. This is how I played it and the strategy is discussed in detail in the dvd

FSLR trade - Gap FILL?

One of the traders had earlier asked me a question about the gap fill on FSLR trade today and if it is 30.32 or 32 or 32.5 and my take on it. We did go to and fro on this and here is my take on gap fills and approximations.

Few things I have seen with stocks is:
1- there are no absolute rules that it HAS to fill the gap. It can also fill in 55% of that gap and that is considered good too.

2- Most of the time it works with approximations like whole number because many traders like me take profit or hits stop loss at close to whole numbers. So it is always a region not a definite value. Many may not agree on this but it does work many times. There is no brick wall that the stock has to touch a point before it can go up/down. Hence approximations work

3. Just because this is one example that is being discussed does not mean that this is the RULE. It was for this example, tomorrow it may do something different like CASE 1 pointed out in the chart.
4. Stock price and liquidity has a lot to do with it too. $3 down is 10% down that is big so even if one gets anywhere between 3-7%, it should be good enough and trade-able.

5. Most of the times it works with support resistance better. Like 32.5 region is where the support likes and so is 33.5, it could have gone to 30.32 too.. but that is way far off and the daily pattern does not show that the stock on an average moves $3-$5.

6. 200 Day Moving Average is shown with a purple line. That also has significance and that may hold if stock is up or may hold if stock is low. It will test that point just because many traders believe in it.

7. Fibonacci series traders have a definite way of trading and that works too.

Taking all this into consideration, I would take profits at whole numbers most of the time and it has worked for me with my strategy. It may take many sessions for an actual gap fill. So day trading has a different meaning on it. Longer term or swing trades can say 30.32 for their eventual target, may work for that strategy. Again there is no brick wall that it has to bounce. Approximations always work.
As you can see different traders trade differently based upon chart intervals, type of trading - swing/day/long and hence no ONE trader gets their way. This is what makes stocks most interesting...

This works for my strategy, does not mean the other strategies and successful traders cannot have their way. As long as a trader can do it consistently, I think anything goes. Hope this helps.

EL long play

There were few that was of interest this morning - CTSH, EL, X, ADSK etc..
EL worked out awesome, if you follow my strategy you will see that such trades happen on few stocks every single day. It is very easy to find them and if you play it the way I tell you to, you will gain most of the time. The success ratio is pretty high and is very predictable.

I liked EL when I saw that it did not go below the 1st 5 minute bar. This strategy is called weak bar reversal play. I exited at whole number.

GILD short

Played GILD short this morning and had called it as the trade was forming on twitter. I had expected a quicker move downward but it also fell in the extended consolidation pattern but never crossed the top whole number which is why this was still a play. It did work out but not a huge profit.
Check out my entries/exits

AIG long

Played AIG long this morning but the stock did not go much further. One reason is the 1st bar is just too long and all the move happened within the 1st 5 minutes leaving hardly any room for more movement. The consolidation looked good and a 2nd strike could have worked but it did not.
It is important to take your stops and hence posting it.

GILD short

This is another example of the strategy called "Mid bar continuation" where there is weakness on the 1st bar but the pattern continues in the direction of the trade. Works out nicely. Check out the play. I did not play this but saw the gap much later so just wanted to post the pattern for everyone's benefit.

TXN Long

Played TXN long today. This was an awesome pullback play. I started with a small size above the 1st 5 minute bar and then added when I got a pullback. This worked out very nice and got plenty of opportunity to add and exited close to the next whole number. Check out how I play this accurately and win every single time on this play.

WDAY short

I played WDAY short as soon as it went below the 1st 5 min bar. the 1st bar on 1 min was too quick down so just started small on it and added when I got a rebound on the 1 min chart as shown. I finally exited when it dipped below the next whole number mark. Awesome trade straight out of my dvd and training
