Video Trade Recap, Charts, The Reasoning and More! $AVXL $WTW $CTRP $MU

by | Nov 9, 2015

It's been an amazing year for volatility, and I'm not sure if I am just adapting as a trader or if it's just one of the wildest runs we've had with countless opportunities each day. This market is all about analyzing everything that's moving in the morning plus your watch list and narrowing down the top watches for the day.


Top watches can be different for everyone, as you should play you what you are MOST successful at. If you're better at shorting, than knock out all the trades that have no volume and don't look like they're going to pan out for the short that day. Focus on the best opportunities at hand that fit you strengths. Same thing if you're looking for long opportunities. Take the 10-12 watches you have and bring it to 2-3 main watches and FOCUS.

Two main struggles for me which I've been working on overcoming are:

1. Snap back and reclaim: This is the same as the 2015 flaws post where I size into a trade and it reverses trend. If you realize that things are beginning to reverse, knowing that you can ALWAYS re-add the second you cover can help combat this. Most people are willing to turn a big win into a little one, or even a loss, just to save $5 bucks commission. Think about it - nothing wrong with getting out or sizing down if it's not doing what you think. Just add it right back once it continues on with what you were anticipating.


2. Patience: I've been too patient at times. Part of really excelling as a trader is being patient, but sometimes you can be too patient. If you tell people you were up $1K, $5K or even $10-20K and then the trade went to flat or red, most people will tell you that you're crazy, greedy and an idiot - but are you? Or was it part of the plan? Was that $1k or $5k gain just one snap away from $5 to $20k gain? Than you did nothing wrong - SOMETIMES patience doesn't work but it's what you do when the trade reverses that matters.


As I've said time and time again -- the key is to never stop learning! I've picked up so many things re-reading MomoTraders. It's about taking a little bit from everyone and molding to your own type of trader.

Today was a fun day. One trade that I've been having some serious success with (especially in this market) is the "failed follow through momentum" trade. This can be either on a gap up or gap down but has two key elements. 1) Its a big over extended chart that's been having trouble with pushing higher or 2)  it's under major chart support and very close to what I call an "unwind."

The failed follow through momentum is really about starting in small into the morning pop with an educated risk on an over extended chart and then looking for a key level (prior base) to start to peak out. Then, add in accordingly with set risk on prior top. CTRP trade was a perfect example of that today.

The "unwind" style play can be seen on charts like VRX, ENDP, AMBA, VMW and most recently MW. It's the charts that are testing major chart support and, what I prefer, is it's UNDER it, then re-test a prior top, FAIL, re-test, fail ... and start to speed up to the downside. This was seen on VRX where it continually failed. The idea is that everyone is buying the dip, adding, adding and no real plan for risk. Well, when it doesn't bounce much, it tries to turn, pushes up, fails again at a lower level and turns into a bouncing ball type of move (basketball analogy we discuss in webinars). It keeps testing the floor and eventually snaps under it forcing all those without a plan to bail, market sell, panic and washout.

I will cover a few of the trades I made today discussing the type of trade on each! These are my main three trading accounts (I had a few other VRX trades and DNR gapper in Fidelity and my LT Etrade account)

 (Since it doesn't break down PnL you can see trades HERE)

CTRP failed follow through momentum

As you can see here I started into the trade - using $105 as the guide on the initial trade. I took a starter and it immediately came back and re-tested $102.50s where they sold into it heavily (hidden) and slammed it right back down. It started to pull back a bit re-tested $102.50s and peaked out yet again.

In the chart above, you can't see all adds, but I added in Etrade once this key area of support 101.50 (which tested, re-tested and tested again) failed. Once it was over/under that level of $101, I can add all day with proper risk set off the $102 level. As we saw on QUNR recently these things have just been jumping around, squeezing randomly, and then selling off more than you know (if you were unaware, the two ran together on the news just last week).

Once $96.50s put in two bottoms and held, I ran out of patience and went ahead and took the trade.

AVXL is an example of well just a crowded long side mess.

This has been one of the most talked about names in the past few weeks. It was holding remarkable gains when it was on the OTC  preparing for the uplist to Nasdaq. They did a 4:1 reverse split which typically runs for a few days and then craters once everyone starts to get their shares back, but they planned this one pretty nicely as the uplist approval came shortly after and it didn't stop there. They had news pending, which couple it all together, gave one of the best story stocks in a long time -- unfortunately roasting longs the past few days.

The reason this play was so aggressive to the downside is that they painted such a great story to unsuspecting investors so smart money was able to not only unload all last week to early shorts and new investors but even this morning as well! They put a positive spin on meaningless data and fully took advantage of all retail buyers pre market.

Fortunately for us, it came right into the wheel house, providing some nice opportunities to get short at $10.40-10.50s. Who was buying? No idea, likely emotional longs "afraid" to miss the move and early shorts panic covering into the break out. Long story short the pump worked, they got a nice squeeze and it's going to be a LONG, slow and steady grind back to where it came from over the next six months. I mentioned a few weeks back that AVXL would likely end just like PVCT (same cult style longs, same uplist story, and same data pending story) before the house came falling in.

It's been a wild week. Eric and Phil had their most amazing weeks ever in their trading careers on this name alone! I wish more people would pay attention and learn from these guys and many others that put out the warnings. It's unfortunate that longs are too far gone to even care what the reality is and will defend this thing all the way back to .50 cents. But hey, without them we wouldn't have had the opportunity. At least the warning signs were there.
The unwind trade:

MU was another example of the failed follow through momentum but this time on an unwinder style chart below chart support. I got short into pops of MU once I saw a top at the top green line drawn on the chart.

Once MU cracked under the bottom green line I can add on all pops with a risk on the prior highs and just wait for the bounce players to calm until it nears that $16. Then we start to unwind and snap sub whole number levels providing a nice profit opportunity.
