Art & Science of Active Trend Trading Free Report for June 5

Good Day Traders,

Overview & Highlights: I will be flying to our old home in Hawaii this week, so this weekend’s report will be shorter than usual. I am interested in opening two positions on Monday. The TSLA trade below and a small position in SIX. The mid-week training and Friday webinars will resume this week for our members. As you know Strategy III is doing very well for the year and with the potential of volatility increasing through the remainder of the year, I will add an additional long TSLA 17Jan Call & Put Strangle thus increasing the amount of weekly premium I will collect. For premium members the details of the expected trade are provided at the bottom of the Strategy III section. The TSLA trade is up over 57% since it was opened at the end of September last year.

Here is a sample of the weekly stock update I’m working on which will list the stock or ETF along with detail about where to execute a trade. This sample is not a recommendation just a sample of the format I’ll use. My intention is to post a simple table like this providing the basics so members can be better prepared for the week. Member’s feedback would be appreciated.

Mid-Week Market Sanity Check Topic: Is it Me? Trading Psychology

General Market Observation: Two weeks ago the Tracking Index bounced and ran up hard for a week and then the SPX and NDX spent last week moving sideways just below strong resistance. The RUT pushed higher until finally slowing down on Friday. Both the NDX and SPX look like a pullback is in the offing and may take place this week. With the extremely poor Jobs Report Friday the odds of the Fed raising rates at the next meeting have dramatically diminished despite the saber rattling over the last few weeks by the Fed Presidents!

The Fed meeting is a wild card because now the potential of negative interest rates may come into play. Is it even legal for the Fed to go to a negative interest rate? Regardless the minor rise in rates last December provides at least one silver bullet and there is a potential of more QE. Either of these action would potentially provide a path for easy money that could continue propping up the market. At present the Fear Index as measured by the VIX is remaining low so the bias for the market remains up even if we get a 2-5% pullback between now and the Fed meeting.

At this point the Indexes and several stocks have had a great two week run, which may start coming under pressure requiring a reversion to the mean of the moving averages.

The How to Make Money Trading Stock Show—Free Webinar every Friday at 11:30 a.m. PDT. I’m looking for the best time to offer this webinar. I want to try closer to the close on Friday to see how that works out for potential trades going into the close. This weekly live and recorded webinar helped traders find great stocks and ETF’s to trade with excellent timing and helped them stay out of the market during times of weakness.
