Cool NEW Feature To The Art Of Trading!!!!!




Starting monday i am going to implement a cool new feature to the ART OF TRADING service as i am always seeking to improve it and hopefully get you guys better trading results. I will be sending you guys charts with specific BUY/SHORT points: For example: I will email you chart patterns of a 1-3 stocks that i am very interested in and deem them high probability trades and i will give you a specific BUY or SHORT number with a specific stop loss: You can choose to either manually watch and enter these stocks and time your entry OR you could use BUY STOP orders to get you into the trade alerts once a specific price is touched the trade will trigger!!

See the CGA chart example of a trade we did this week. I will continue to issue trade management emails(raising stops or cutting non performing trades quickly etc). I will also email you a confirmation email that a trade did trigger.
see the CYTK chart for what a new setup or potential trade alert would look like and also how previous alerts in CYTK could have looked like.

Art Of Trading Service Performance For Week 24

This is the 4th losing week with 20 winning weeks. The losses were tiny for the most part as i tried my best to manage a rough and choppy tape by playing it with closer stops or cutting non performing trades quickly. We did 13 trades: 9 losses, 3 wins and 1 flat.

I made some good calls on market direction but i didn't execute my trades properly this week. I felt a bit off in my timing and my entries were a bit off. Will make some adjustments in this department and hopefully turn in some better trades!!

It was not week i am proud of but i will strive on regaining my form next week!!

WHERE THERE'S SMOKE THERE IS FIRE!




Hi guys,

Been doing a lot of thinking of today and i wanted to do an email post about losing trades. Most traders only talk about their winning trades and how much they made on a trade, that's great but today i wanted to touch on a very important issue: losing trades. If you are a trader then you need to expect losses. It's the reality of trading and it's the price of admission to this game we all love. Managing losing trades will determine your fate and staying power. Today i will not talk about my winning trades much, i already did enough posts about these. Winning trades work RIGHT AWAY....that's the bottom line. Perfect example look at HAR yesterday!! I saw the setup after a member called it out, took a look at it and i said "BUY THIS NOW!!" There was no question in my head HAR was going higher! see chart for details.

NOW ON TO LOSING TRADES: WHERE THERE IS SMOKE THERE IS FIRE!! WHEN A TRADE STARTS TO BUST YOU WILL KNOW IT, YOUR MIND STARTS TO QUESTION THE MOVE AND IMMEDIATELY AFTER YOU WILL GET AN UNCOMFORTABLE FEELING IN YOUR STOMACH AND ANXIETY STARTS TO BUILD AS PRICE ACTION STARTS TO GO AGAINST YOU AND THE PATTERN STARTS TO SLOWLY BREAK AGAINST YOU. AS THIS POINT YOU IN ESSENCE FIGHTING THE TREND AS TREND STARTS TO SHIFT ON YOU.

This requires attention and action! See charts for detailed explanations on losing trade management. Trade like a SMOKE DETECTOR because where there is smoke, there is fire and sometimes as traders we need to bail before the stop loss hits!!

have a great day!

THE POWER OF BULL FLAGS!!






Look at this stock, ZOOM. A member of the Art Of Trading Service called it out at $7 in the chat room today and watch what happened shortly after. That was truly an epic call BUT once again shows the power and predictable outcomes of the BULL FLAG pattern. I didn't take the trade because i stupidly took my eyes off it for 15 minutes. But many other guys in the CHAT ROOM took it and let's just say they are happy campers today!!

But the bottom line is this: WATCH FOR and LEARN the power of intra day bull flags!!!!! ZOOM was the hero of the day but look at the other bull flag setups that were called out today in the chat room by other traders and members of the ART OF TRADING service.

All big winners!!

SPOT THE BULL FLAG AND WIN!!

Time For Another Breather



Indexes look set to take a little breather after the big run they had last week. I am playing index weakness by playing VXX long. VXX is an ETF that mimics the VIX or increase in volatility. We went long VXX late friday afternoon for a trade into monday.

New Member Makes A $890 Profit In His First Week!!!!

"have had a great week. the 3 trades i have done have made me $890. would have made about $75 more but put in a stop on glbl that did not work. have figured out the way to do my stops after that. plan on trading @ $10,000 on all of your alerts and once i get ahead @ $5,000 i am going to step up to $15,000/$20,000 per alert. i think you have a good handle on the stocks and appreciate the help since I have other obligations and do not have the time right now to do much research. plan on sticking with you for a good while. thanks Rob"

Prop Firms and Getting Around The $25K Day Trading Laws

Hi guys, i got this great email and response from another member about Prop firms as well a good way to get around the 25K issue. Just an idea, not investment advice or talking down prop firms.

The member writes:

I've been with 3 or 4 prop firms in the past but don't know if I would ever go with one again. The rules of the game have changed. In order to do things properly and not be guilty of illegally trying to circumvent the securities laws regarding customer accounts, prop firms now need to meet certain requirements, such as not having traders put up their own capital, not giving full payouts of trading profits, etc. Some firms try to finesse these requirements and can get into trouble if they aren't careful. You are also at risk of them going under with your capital as one prop firm did not too long ago. A safer way to get around the $25k day trading requirement might be to open 2 or more small accounts with different brokers and make sure you don't make more than 4 day trades within 5 business days in any one of them. Additional accounts can be IRAs, your spouse can have another, etc...

UUP and Goldman Sach's Charts Updated Charts



I posted these charts a few days ago. GS topping out and UUP likely in a bottoming formation now. Both will affect the equity markets in a negative way if that is indeed the case. Fasten your seat belts, we could be in a roller coaster ride.

DJIA Topping Out
