Positions and Performance Will be Updated after the first full week of each Month–
Performance through February 9, 2018
Just a reminder of what we focus on at Active Trend Trading. First we use a mechanical system for planning swing and trend trades in three different strategies. Active Trend Trading Premium Members can parallel trade in one or all three of these Strategies. For members starting out focusing on Strategy I promotes learning the system before branching out into either of the Option Strategies.
Strategy I: Portfolio Building–The objective of this strategy is to take advantage of changes in trend on IBD 50 Growth Stocks and a stable of quality ETFs that follow the Indexes plus Gold, Oil, Financials and Biotech’s.
Strategy II: Options–The objective of this strategy is to use Active Trend Trading Triggers for short to intermediate swing trades using directional option strategies. Expected hold time is a few days to a few weeks. This Strategy is designed for weekly & monthly Cash Flow, target: $500 – $1000 per week.
Strategy III: Income and Wealth Building–The objective of this strategy is to sell weekly premium against LEAPS positions in SPY, TSLA and NVDA. Selling weekly option premium against these foundational positions reduces the cost basis with an objective of returning between 50% and 100% of the initial investment after paying for the initial investment.
The first of the year update show that January provided good gains in all three of the Strategies. The Market’s raced out of the gate at the beginning of the year on a parabolic trajectory. This was very suspect of Climax Topping price action. Gravity finally caught up with market the first full week in February with each of the Indexes retracing past gains on a pullback which saw the S&P dropping close to 12% from it’s high of 2018. If volatility is an issue with the markets this year, Buckle Up!
January Update: Total trading capital brought forward from 2017 was $100,000. At the end of January the trading account was up $6,190 or 6.19%. Very please that many Active Trend Trading Members are reporting excellent results starting out the year. Thanks to the mechanics of the Active Trend Trading System most members have gone to cash for Strategies 1 & 2. Strategy 3 is doing well and is benefiting from both the upside and downside movement.
The first 5 Training sessions for Premium Members provide exactly how to use ATTS Rules to enter and exit each of the 3 Strategies. We will build on this with more trades with conditional orders based on well defined Bounce Zones on the Stocks & ETFs provided on the “Go-No Go” Watch List.
