My last thread got polluted with a lot of entertainment material.

 

Just for fun, i will post 10 trades and show how to come out a winner. All real-time entries/exits with STOPS.

 

PLEASE do not post non-trading stuff on this thread.

 

Now i have a buy signal above SPX 2163. Let's call this Trade #1 if gets filled. I trade leveraged ETFs using SPX levels.

Let me take you on it.  I am already short from higher levels but let's say short right now 2160 spx with stop 2180.  Target for first half is at 1 to 1 (2140).  Target for the other half is subject to change based on breadth and price.

Here's what I am trading today - Switch from > wedge to broadening top <

 

I just put in a trade at 5330 here Nasdaq short, my risk is easily defined as a punch over it...

 

And the target is down at support 5275 - we'll see if it works...

Great idea, NAV.  I hope a GDX trade is okay to share here.  I bought 1000 sh DUST yesterday on the open at 39.39.  I will sell half when GDX hits 22. stop at GDX 24.  Open profit $9K.

 

Since this trade was not shared in real time, I have included a snippet from my TDA account page showing the DUST position.

Well....some of us have also been looking at GDX...

 

Just want to point out the gap fill at 22.77, adjacent to the high volume gap up day on 6/3

 

You could find a pack o'hounds buying there...

 

Have a great day !

Thx, Semi.  I will keep an eye on that fill.

ksssmibottom,

 

Even if it's not real-time, that's fine. Just sharing trading ideas is good enough. Better than the BS and constant food fights that go on, on this board.
