The Road To The Final Four

586 views

Congrats to those still in our 8th annual March Madness stock tournament. As we count down the final minutes in the elite eight, who will advance to the final four?

In the East, will it be the legendary AndySwan from likefolio? or legacy 12631 member Matt James?

In the West, we have a very tight matchup between VSLR (Mr. Brown) and $LOCO (NoCigar)?

In the North, 12631 member JPMorgains looks to pull another upset with his squad $GIMO, this time over WYNN (martin).

And in the South, my former division, it looks like long time reader, Cam, will take the W over Mr. TapeReader.

I picked up some $BABA earlier in the week and continue to like the spot here. The stock sits right at it’s 20 day moving average, giving us a manageable spot to trade from. The slow stochastic is also setting up a buy signal. Here is a look at the daily chart:

I felt my body just withering away today, while starting at my screen, watching tick fluctuations gyrate back and forth throughout the day. Sometimes I question why I do this shit, why stare at my screen for hours watching green and red bars? Then, I remembered, we do this shit to bank coin.

This isn’t about a pissing contest, this isn’t about selling subscriptions, this is about making money. I remember getting into this game, the stock game, I was looking for a side hustle. I wanted to supplement my income with another revenue stream. Funny thing happened after that, I became addicted.

Truth be told I’m still an addict. I spend countless hours a night going through screens, charts, and lately, thanks to Exodus, more financials. I give up time with my family, time with my businesses, and even sacrifice my health at times for mother market. And, you know what, I still love every minute of it.

When you have passion for something, it makes everything easier. I’m reminded of a quote that says, “Find what you love to do, and you’ll never work a day in your life.”

Nothing in life, worth a damn anyway, is easy. If someone told you trading would be easy, they lied to you. Without passion, there is no way you will have longevity in the game. It’s a grind. It took me years to become profitable as a trader.

On the day, I did nothing, but still had a better day than most of you. And, the reason for that is because I love what I do. If you find yourself fed up, trading stocks day in and day out, moping around in misery, STOP. Go do something else. Find what gives you passion to be great. That my friends is the key to happiness.

Energy names are leading the day today with the $OIH and $XLE leading the way for the bulls. I’m eying a possible position in $DNR, and also like $SM, $REXX, & $OAS.

The action in the overall market looks terrible, but I’m still seeing pockets of strength which prevents me from hitting the panic sell on current positions.

When in a bull market such as this, I find it (most of the time) beneficial to wait for the close before making any rash decisions on swing trades– so I will do just that.

If this selloff does indeed turn south or the speed changes, I may trim down a few positions. It always helps to have a hedge in the portfolio, mine is $BIS. We are long from 31.92, and I have no intentions of selling it.

Here’s a look at today’s hybrid movers, however only those with positive free cash flow:

Solar Leads The Day

Once again, Solar is one of the strongest industries on the day, despite oil being in the 40s. My horse is $FSLR, which happens to be the best of breed in this space.

Here’s a preview of today’s industry page inside of Exodus:

I bought $FSLR on the intraday break @ 60.74. I’m running a $1 stop on my shares which equal the low of the day as well as the 20 day moving average. If she is to go, she is to go now. Here is the daily chart of this best of breed solar company:
