    ============== Let's Go Crazy ==============

    Maybe Prince had it right: 'Two thousand zero zero party over, oops out of time.'  This market certainly doesn't want the party to end.  Of course, the CME wouldn't even let the party start until 4 hours later last night.  What's THAT all about?

    Tonight, we'll look at the major market averages and see where they've taken us now.  And we'll cover the news of the day, including Burger King's possible acquisition, the Napa earthquake, and post-market releases.  Join us later today.

  • This Weeks HPS Watch List has been updated

    daytraderockstar post

    posted by daytraderockstar

    Aug 22, 2014 9:46 pm

    First lets get the watch list out..You can view the new set up here.

    After doing a mid week video update, I have noticed not much has changed and the predicted upside had come to reality. It will be very hard to not expect further upside in this market and with that said the game plan remains the same Quality- HPS- and Continue to bank profits. This weeks Watch list breaks down further new trades in the Oil and Gas names and GOLD and SILVER has made its way back into my radar. And the lane Divergence that has appeared in Copper Stocks.. All great stuff. As with the market outlook.. Well can I cheat and say that a pullback would be welcomed but I understand why the market could move higher. I have to go with Higher and make a charge at the S&P 2k level.

    This next video is a basic review of why the HPS has been just killing it. The credit has to go to the 60 min time frame for our exits..and for our entries.

    .

     

    I recently took a few days off and I find taking a step away from the markets was a very positive experience for me.  As when your totally immersed in the markets like I am every day you get bombarded everyday from every side. Most traders get caught up on every move be it big or small in the markets. The bears will attack when there is signs of weakness in the market with their repetitive argument that the whole house of cards will come tumble down and the Fed is completely wrong in on how they are dealing with growth and their programs. And then you have the Bulls which might have a more optimistic point of view on the markets or economy but could fall under the same trap as the bears. Believing they are right and the markets are wrong. That has not happened yet and all indications point to a continued upside. I am not here to say the bears are wrong and the bulls are right I am here to say we are wrong as traders when the signals are showing one thing and you refuse to take advantage of it because you have core belief in something else.

    I know this will fall some deaf ears, there are thousands of traders that will pass through this site over the years. Most won't make it, I am not going to lead you on or tell you this is an easy job. But I can share with you knowledge i have gained over 19 years of trading. When I started out I was starving for knowledge always looking for the perfect strategy or system, Studying charts for hours each night. Following message boards believing things I read on message forums. sometimes it would work but over time it would catch up to me and I would have to take bigger gambles (trades) to mentally get myself back in the game. Most of the time this would put me in a deeper hole. This was what I look back on and call my learning curve. Learning now what did not work most of the time. The big change came for me when I was able to see what didn't work most of the time to finding what worked the majority of the time. What was the correlation between why some trades worked the majority of the time and why some trades didn't. I worked hard on statistics of my successful trades and unsuccessful ones. what was the common denominator of them? Over time I found that there was not just one reason why stocks moved up or down but the moves happened to correlate with what I call the arrangement of underlying indicators.  That's was the easy part. The hard part and the reason most traders fail over time is the markets are a big casino open to the public with no age restriction no experience or prior knowledge need to enter. And with the daily temptation of the being able to make money by just pressing a couple of buttons it is easy to see how the lack of discipline  and patience will quickly catch a trader and take him down not just monetarily but emotionally also . There is always a better way and that way is to slow down and take the trades that fall within the requirements of HPS. 

    I hope everyone has a great weekend and See you on Monday

    Nothing wrong with this market except for finding new low risk-high reward (High Probability Setups). This video focuses on just those setups going into the end of the week. I have a set up perfect for tomorrow and will be getting in early on it. Plus 7 new set ups that are looking great. I also discuss where the markets look to be heading in the short term. It's a great time to be a trader and as we continue to play the cards we are dealt we will continue to take the money off the table. If this was a poker game I would have to say we have a great hand going into the end of the week.

    This MId Week Video can be found in the HPS Video section here its the second video on the page called mid week video and NEW setups

     

    See you tomorrow

  • Update of the High Probability Watch List

    daytraderockstar post

    posted by daytraderockstar

    Aug 16, 2014 4:13 pm

    As you know I am taking a few days with the family but I would like to update you on some HPS trades that are active and on this latest watch list. I will be back on Tuesday morning and will hit the ground running. I hope everyone is happy with the latest HPS list as even with all the news the last couple days the setups continue to be hitting there targets and the entries have been close if not spot on. I am the first to say never be over confident but as we look back at these stocks you will see the value of waiting for the confluence of indicators. The other thing I will always stress and find this to be a major obstacle for beginner traders is the concept of buying into weakness and selling into strength. Most people have been conditioned to fear or stay away from weakness and to chase or be attracted to strength. Even though this seems like a logical approach the markets. The mind of a novice trader will be more susceptible to chase a stock that is acting good without knowing where the short term tops are, causing them to get in and then seeing their stock instantly pullback. This will be a frustrating lesson but easy to overcome.  There is a right way and a wrong way to approach this method. Each trade should be planned out at least in your head and there is one simple rule that will give you a huge edge in the markets.

    This rule is based on the Stochastic Oscillator (Indicator) and if this is new to you then you might be new to DTR as this is one of  the foundation indicators I use trading. I have a lot of videos and education on the site to catch you up or just tune and I can answer any questions you have. 

    Another thing to remember we cannot control market moving events. In this day in age we get news out each day and some of it will impact the market in a negative or positive way. These events will neutralize most technical indicators for the short term and you should be aware of this and adjust your trading to reflect that. 

    Important Rule:  Every trade should be broken down to its smallest time frame or at least the 60 minute time frame. This is the biggest mistake I see from traders. The 60 minute time frame is fast enough to wait for even for the short term scalper and I consider it perfect for the short term swing trader (holding 1-3 days). There is no holy grail in trading but this little adjustment will greatly improve your chances in the markets. Now exits are just as important and you need to understand that the stocks or (whatever you trade) will go through a cycle. In a bullish trend you will see a move up then a pullback or consolidation then a continued move higher and the opposite for a bearish trend. The 60 minute time frame is the first indicator I use to focus on a short term exit. No emotion no greed here. In terms of being long you will see more times then not a stock stall out and even pullback when the 60 gets overbought. It's really a perfect timing tool and as I said in the beginning you need to know that your trading plan is. If its short term and you are just looking for a fast in and out then you would act on the 60 min rotation  if it was a longer term swing trade then you have the option to let the trade go through it's cycle and consolidate or pullback before moving higher.

    I wanted to get this in writing here even though I discuss this each and every day on Daytradingradio. Trading is hard but its because traders are tied to there emotions. Fear and greed is something everyone has to conquer.This is just part of the process to make that possible. There is a lot of other things that will help you on your journey. Position Sizing is just as important. I will write about this next week. Position sizing is just as important as this weeks post.

    Lets look at this past weeks HPS .

    FMC we had great patience waiting for this to set up properly. Stochastics at the time of the entry where oversold on both 60 min and daily time frame and it came down into our HPS trend line zone. The breakdown of the bigger channel happened due to market volatility during some geo-political events. The notes posted mentioned a fast profit to be had and it did not disappoint. I am still holding (I expect a move back up to top range of profit zone. The alert was sent when profit zone was hit on Friday.

    V (Visa) Well Hope you took profits on the alert. Worked out fine but it happened fast. Still in this myself I feel V is a great stock for a swing, but the truth is I was no where near internet connection when the alert hit. Still Holding...

    BA (Boeing)  Kick Ass Trade of the Week..This was a great set up and we took profits +3.76 It had all the key components of and HPS Stochastics, Recognizable Channel, Reversal Candle, Quality Name, and even multiple time frame on the entry. How can you not want to be in this?

     

    Well that's it for now.. See you in the markets on Tuesday and I will have the New HPS watch list out Tuesday Night. 

    Don't expect anything less then the best HPS 

    Thanks and Have a great weekend.

    What you turn on When the markets turn off.  Join us for news, earnings, and tunes.

    ============== August Weakness Continues ==============

    The market bounced off the resistance we discussed yesterday.  The bulls seem to be enjoying their time at the shore, but the fact that the bears aren't jumping on the opportunity can make it frustrating.  We'll have to tighten up our trading windows, but the opportunities are definitely there.  Barring geopolitical interference, look for more downside into the end of the week.

    Gold looking good today as well.  But Silver is not joining the party ... yet.

    Let's see how Natural Gas looks from some news out of Pittsburgh and our friends at Stock Trader's Almanac.

    Also, it's our new show segment, New Tunes Tuesday.  We'll check out some of the new music released today.  

    And today's show wouldn't be complete without a tribute to Robin Williams.  It's sad that we live in a society where mental illness is viewed with discrimination.  Our hearts go out to his family and friends, and to all those affected by depression and addiction.

    See you later today.

    The Market has been digesting the news of re-entry into Iraq.  Whether you call it 'drone strikes' or 'humanitarian aid' or whatever, the Market doesn't care.  What the Market WILL care about is uncertainty.  And uncertainty = volatility for us traders.

    On today's show, we'll look at latest earnings releases and breaking briefs.

    We'll also look at something called Payday Loans and see if we can uncover whether the big boys are behind the scene.

    Should be a great show.  See you later today.

    If you were able to follow last week's and this week's Market Radar Video's you were definitely not taken by surprise by the recent move down. The charts were all pointing to a drop and news of the Argentina default added to the pressure and things really played out as planned. I don't want to see the market pull back and catch people but I was kinda happy to see the call come true and that we got the move that I was looking for. Now this sets us up for a crazy next week. I will start off saying I still think we head lower before heading to new highs on the SPX. The move is overdue and the momentum is on the sell side for a little more time.

    That's why I focused on getting the VXX on the bounce in the markets today. After seeing such a picture perfect technical breakdown I wanted to take advantage of the first bounce. While still expecting further downside. 

    Next week brings a lot of interesting charts to table. I go over these in detail on this week's HPS watch list that you can view here.

    Today was also very busy for me in the chat room and in the trade alert box. On Fridays I work from 8:00am till around 10:00pm on charting and finding the best set up in the market for the following week. I wanted to share today's log with you as there was a lot of great info. 

    I even got into an Ebola play and was happy to see other join me for a nice ride and profit ( I am still holding but some took profits)

    Well here are some comments from today's action; I am leaving out the HPS charts that were posted those can be seen in the video and the HPS site

    Today's Transcript 

    (9:05 am) Morning Notes : Don't forget there is a Market Radar out for today https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2r3E6lSzgIE&feature=youtu and just will be positingcharts all day and here is an early list of great potential bounce trades. PG, MON, GIS, KSU Channel,
     


    ( 9:16am) looking at PFE again 28.00-28.20 area, CS Channel, BLL Flag, $RUT as a possible Lane Divergence, CMI lower channel line, K in the same setup as GIS but a great retracement trend line under us now. KRFT same as above.. All these are looking so nice for starting entries but I expect the market to pull back further.. So cautiouson any longs 


    (9:34am) Bought MON 20 @ 112.68 added to position 60 shares total 


    (9:41am) First bounce after a day like yesterday is suspect but the 60 min is set up and we are right on the 1-2-3 channel line so looks good for more upside 


    (9:46am) Bought VXX 100 @ 31.49 


    (9:50am) Markets usually sell this bounce but we do have a nice DTR 1-2-3 pattern and 60 min set up 
    https://twitter.com/daytradingradio/status/495211321018036224/photo/1


    (9:56am) Will be adding to Gold soon Like the GLD a lot and this last pullback looks perfect for a continued move back up 


    (10:04) Bought VXX 50 @ 30.69 150 shares 


    (10:05am) I am having a hard time buying this pop. Holding some longs and feel better having this VXX hedge for now 


    (11:04am) Here is something to pay attention to for this next pullback 
    https://twitter.com/daytradingradio/status/495223420561686528/photo/1 
     

    (11:21am) Bought V 20 @ 211.56 small scales 60 total Higher Risk don't want to get to involved yet in longs except some quality names that are holding up 


    (11:24am) Sold VXX 150 @ 32.40 +91 


    (12:04pm) Small tight Scalp Bought TNA 100 @ 64.72 looking at 1.00 stop might add 

    (12:08pm) Will be positing some future setups for next week some I am already scaling into small. But these levels and stocks will be discussed in detail in the video released later tonight 

    (12:08pm) HPS POSTED for MEMBERS

    (12:24pm) HPS POSTED for MEMBERS 

    (12:38pm) keeping my eye out for a move back up in the $RUT long the TNa and looking to add 


    (12:51pm) Sold QCOM 70 @ 72.29 -3.86 


    (12:57pm) Bought TNA 50 @ 65.06 added to position Higher Risk 


    (12:58pm) HPS POSTED for MEMBERS 

    (1:24pm) prob a nice safe level to get out of TNA here on this bounce still very risky I am taking the chance we get a grind higher 


    (1:28pm) Surround yourself with quality stocks and friends. Watch SPLS we actually can grind all the way back up here on SPLS 

    (1:30pm) Awesome move here DTR multiple time frame buy signal sold VXX into and bought TNA.. Lets keep it going 

    (1:46pm) Question of the Day: What stocks are out there to watch if there if chatter of someone with Ebola gets into the US. You know this is coming. 


    (2:01pm) Bought TKMR 50 @ 13.61 High Risk Spec stock on Ebola 

    (2:11pm) Sold TNA 150 @ 66.00 +1.17 


    (2:18pm) Even though I got out of TNA the multiple time frames is a nice set up and we could easily move higher. But the game is to rat hole profits. I am happy with the follow through today and starting to shift to a positive bias but lets just say slightly bullish right now on how this day ends up. 


    (2:33pm) Bought TKMR added to position 50 @ 13.75 High Risk Just a spec play on the Ebola Virus, Not to much research at this point just working a possible media frenzy if things got worse. 


    (2:50pm) HPS POSTED for MEMBERS 


    (3:22pm) What time we send out the Question on the EBOLA Stock and Buy $TKMR on top of it again!! #Rockoutwithyourstockouthttps://twitter.com/daytradingradio/status/495287955528093696/photo/1
