Finally, done with my Visa application, and senior post interview and assessment. I was too busy with these that I forgot to place orders on my scans i.e. SOXL relative strength. Anyway, I initiated a position on $PBF and $BIDU last Thursday following OPEC oil production cut news for the former and price action (high volume 200SMA bounce) of the latter.
S&P 500 ripped thru 4K this week despite weakness in February.
The market chatter for last week was the blow-up of Bill Hwang's Archegos Capital (here's the link to the story). The forced liquidation of Bill Hwang's position reminded me of Melvin Capital back in January.
Crypto is strong - ETH 2k (again), BTC 60K (again)- my polkadot hit +35%. Two blocks still staked at 12% APY. ATH for my crypto account.
Historically, April is the best month in terms of market return, so looking forward to fully utilise my trading capital.
Lastly, I will add sample historical charts on equities and look for Episodic Pivot (EP), Break-outs (BO) and Parabolic Short/Long set-ups. I am currently trying to force myself to learn these set-ups.
Sample Chart Study
About: Energy/Fitness Drinks
Chart: Gapped up 7 days before Q1 earnings report; gapped again (on volume) after earnings beat, gliding above 10DMA until Q2; Massive gap up (again) Q2 ff earnings beat; formed VCP with strong resistance (red arrows); Gapped on Q3 beat
Entry on Q1 gap up stop on LOH or 10DMA
Nov 3 Pocket Pivot or late stage VCP BO before Q2 announcement (due to risk - starter position only)
Dec 3 tight bullish flag BO
Quallamaggie (one of the best traders I follow) recommends that the first gap up on volume is critical esp. if the company beats earnings (EPS/revenue).
