Video Analysis  (8 minutes):

Today’s video goes over the plan for the coming week, quickly hitting SPY, IWM, the focus list to start the week and some breakout setups.


Key SPY Pivot Levels: 199 : recent old high, 195.30: 50 dma, 190 gap fill and support level

SPY 8-11-14

Under the Hood and Trading Game Plan:

The move on Friday leads me to believe we might start to float up to the $195 range. Our analysis has not changed.  Short at $195, long $189-190, while monitoring price and volume action.  A change in character could negate both setups.

I will use UPRO to go long SPY.  It is a 3x leveraged ETF that tracks SPY.  While SPY was down .54% today, UPRO was down 1.64%.

IWM is pulling back up to short entry.  Entry around $114 with a target near the lows at $107.

IWM 8-11-14

Current Trades

I am still holding TWTR and Z.  I entered AAPL on Frida at the close based on the hammer candle that printed near support.

HLF is a volatile stock and should only be traded with those who have the stomach for this type of volatility.  A hammer candle has printed at the old low.  Entry on slight pullback $50-51.  Stop under candle at $48.  Target $60.

  1. Herbalife has a famous hedge fund shorting it. They just did this whole presentation on why the company is defrauding investors, just fyi.

  2. Hi Paul. I just joined and so far I like how you report your progress and picks. I use ThinkorSwim and was wondering if you made a post on setting up your charts. SMA’s, EMA’s, RSI, MACD, Stochastic, etc.
