Nas' Swing Trades and Results

Recommended Posts

I also like SQ, held the bottom after filling Gap from Oct 31st.., series of higher lows..., could go higher, at least we can leverage this info for Day Trading perhaps...

Okay so the only stock that worked for me was YETI, I bought at 17.46, it went all the way up to 18.12 for a profit of 3.72% (I am looking to cut 1/2 at 5%). It closed 17.57, I know there are earnings on the 29th, but I think it will give us a little play as it builds up towards earnings. The market is keeping it down... IMHO

These are the ones I am following now:

 

Propetro Holdings:  short term target 20.50

And I am still looking at CROX - Nice Pull Back

Update. YETI is still working for me. It managed up almost 4.5% to $18.25 even in a weak market. I will continue to hold today but may cut as earnings are Oct 29 and I don’t want to hold through them. Ideally 5% on half position than move the balance to 1% but I will cut full position on strength today.

Haven't been very active in Swing trading, took some good trades on TWLO and , CTRE and STOR in the past, worked out., Here is what I am watching for next week, 

  • Stock: EQT Corporation
  • Symbol: EQT
  • Summary: Stock crossed 20 MA on Daily Chart, it has been making consistent higher Lows since Nov 19th, 2018. Poised to go higher.
  • Entry: Open on Gap up Monday on volume
  • Stop: $18.75
  • First Target: $20.85 (Based on Down Trend Line and Gap Down Candle from 25 Oct 2018
  • More Targets: $21.95 (Gap Fill and ultimately $26.00)

FYI - Could be a good all Day hold or Day Trade Candidate as well.

The EQT Trade did not trigger as it opened lower than yesterday's close. The market is going to need to digest the Huwei news and any new trades now should be done with caution. 

 I am looking to take a small position on KDP

Entry: Open higher than close on Gap and Volume (1/4 position)

Add: Break of 26.60 and lower trend line

Stop: 25.84

First Target: 27

Ultimate: 28.49

Entered KDP Today at open as the higher Gap open triggered an entry and it broke above the downtrending line (yellow) on volume.

Entry was at 26.71 with an initial stop at 26.30.

It closed at 27.22  and moved the stop now to 26.55, looking for it to break the breakdown candle high from Nov 20th over the next few days. First target is 27.75 and than 28.50

Just saw this post. I checked the prices on the three stocks you mentioned Nov 13, and it would have been a nice win if even shares were applied to all three.  BBBY+1.31, NTLA-4.82, BECN+6.63. (according to finviz this morning) 312 bucks on a 5963 investment given 100 shares on each stock. Better than 5% as of today! (I think my math is correct). I really liked your strategy on these. Do you think you would have held the swing that long? I've held a lot longer on trades and done a lot worse. lol!

Great post!

Regards,

Stuart

I think according to my rules, all 3 would have stopped out. If you held long, yes they would have worked out, but I would have re-entered if they triggered when the market started its next up-leg. The only things I hold long are INDEX funds like TQQQ, SQQQ or FFTY
