This has been an incredible year for both me and this blog. Personally, I hit a major level in my trading accounts, moved my family to San Diego, mentored 14 new students, continued to run the part-time swing trading program over at my former student's industry leading website and started a new significant income stream through day...

The Low Risk SKF Trade Setup
SKF is slighly bouncing off support lows. Support could break, but the setup still offers a good risk ratio and a trade that is easily managed. Enter as close to support as possible, place stop below support lows, with a target near resistance levels.
Trade Setup: USO
As noted yesterday, I entered USO at $28.32.Setup: Oversold bounce, possible bottom formation. Stochastics are extremely oversold, which has provided for quick counter trend trades with this stock.Risk: My stop is under price support around $26.50, with the 50 day moving average providing the initial target at $33.50. This gives me a 3:1 reward to... Continue Reading →
X: Low Risk Setup
X provides a low risk setup as it pulls back to the 50 day moving average. If the market tanks, X will go down with it, but losses are easily managed at this level.

While the trend is now decidedly bearish, we are nearing a strong support zone that could provide a bounce that can be traded.If QLD (leveraged long Qs) drops down in the $70-70.50 range, I will likely take...

Commodity Game Plan
I know a few people who are using this morning's bounce to deploy more energy shorts. However, I'm going to wait for a few more points to add to my existing short positions. While I agree we may get a quick drop here, risk/reward is not great until we get entries closer to the top... Continue Reading →

The volume on the bounce gave clues that the bounce could lead to a continuation move.Since that time, we have had two good setups. The... Continue Reading →
