$KC #CoffeeFutures – maybe the best swing trade ever…

Haven’t researched the results versus everything else in the world but $21k per contract on the up and downs, the longs and shorts, in the past 13 months has been fairly steady and rather astounding.

Currently long.

Update: Short from 2/23, 149.95.

$GWPH – still the best marijuana stock

After four more states ended marijuana prohibition in Tuesday’s election with California (the biggie), Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada legalizing its use, there is increased interest in the stocks in the sector.

Many are small and speculative almost beyond belief. No doubt several will someday be big winners but the for now leader in the sector is GWPH.

Here is a description of the company (borrowing from Yahoo finance, https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/GWPH/profile?p=GWPH):

GW Pharmaceuticals plc, a biopharmaceutical company, together with its subsidiaries, engages in discovering, developing, and commercializing cannabinoid prescription medicines. It operates through three segments: Commercial, Sativex Research and Development, and Pipeline Research and Development. The company primarily offers Sativex, an oromucosal spray for the treatment of spasticity due to multiple sclerosis. It also focuses on the Phase III clinical development program of Sativex for use in the treatment of cancer pain; and Phase 2 trials in other indications, such as neuropathic pain. In addition, the company’s product pipeline includes Epidiolex, a treatment for Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, as well as other product candidates in Phase 1 and 2 clinical development for the treatment of glioma, adult epilepsy, type-2 diabetes, and schizophrenia. It operates in the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States, Canada, and Asia. GW Pharmaceuticals plc was founded in 1998 and is based in Cambridge, the United Kingdom.

And technically speaking, the stock is strong.  Swing traders may want to just follow the blue 5-day exponential average to move in and out to reduce risk.

$SPY #Options – been down too long

Following the green…

After dropping hard last Friday and drifting lower through the week, SPY is on a bounce so far today.  Got my Follow-The-Green buy signal at 7 a.m. today (pacific time), and the intraday trend has been up since that time. See chart below (will try to update, trading permitting, during the day).

By the way, those numbers on the lower right of the chart are net gains for 10 contracts (the green number) and 50 contracts (the yellow number).

Must remind this post is for an entertainment purpose only and not to be construed as investment advice, which is why it is intentionally not in real time.

 UPDATED CHART (what a difference an hour makes…)





#StocksToBuy for Tuesday’s open

Following the green…

My newly sorted Nifty-Fifty stock list had buys signals triggered pre-holiday for Tuesday’s open: CARB, UBNT, BID, TRMB, TFX, and CYS (also a yield play).

Among the 3x-leveraged ETFs giving new buys signals: ERX, TNA, TQQQ, and UPRO.

Looking for follow through to the upside for a day trade tomorrow, and maybe a hold for a swing through the week.  But if they violate the open on a five-minute chart, they can be stopped out,  something that has been happening all too much lately in this choppy, nevertheless up-grinding market…

Of note, CYS (see sample chart below) is up 22 percent year today on these swing signals (long only) in addition to sporting a double-digit dividend yield.

#DayTrading stocks for Tuesday’s open…

Following the green…

Had a smattering of new buy signals today on stocks in my Nifty-Fifty Stock list.  If the general market is firm tomorrow, likely these will perform well to the upside.

The five stocks are: WING, which has netted 17.3% on these day-trading signals year to date;  TASR, netting 12.6%; BID, up 46.7%; SLCA, up 36.9%; and Z, up 27.1%.

What I’m looking for now, of course, is follow through for today’s buys on tomorrow’s open.  I will use a five-minute stop (that is to say, each stock needs to be above it’s open five minutes into the day).

These are day trades intended to be closed at the end of the day and not held overnight but there is the option to hold longer if the general market shows signs of less chop and some rally (for instance, as a swing trade initiated on these signals, Z is up a splendid 60.7% year to date).


As always, this discussion is only for entertainment purposes and should not be construed as trading or investment advice.

$SPY – in intraday uptrend on open

Following the green…

The major indexes, represented by the ETFs SPY, QQQ and IWM, will enter the open today in intraday uptrends following the firming on the close yesterday.

But with many crosscurrents in the market and a rally that is long in the tooth, question will be how long can the uptrend hold.
