Momentum Monday

Judging by the futures it looks like the market is ready to carry over momentum from last week. I, myself, wish I would have traded today. Instead, I opted for heavy deadlift, which may or may not have caused a hernia injury. I’ll get the wife to check to see if there is a bulge later.

For now, with ice on my lower abdomen, I present to you– Friday’s Momentum screen. There are a bunch of names to sort through tonight, but I have laid them out ever so perfectly in finviz for your viewing pleasure. CLICK HERE FOR CHARTS

As we head into the shortened holiday week, here are my favorite chart setups from Friday’s screen, with $OSTK being #1 (We are long inside Exodus). Financials, Gold, Silver, Biotech, & Oil were the standouts as we closed last week, my favorite charts can be found below:

A Great Spot For $SPOT

$SPOT is another name I like for 2019, and the latest Podcast acquisition(s), plural, is giving us a great spot to enter the stock. The latest quarter was not bad, and the growth trajectory is still on point. The stock has pulled back from early momentum to start the year and now sits just above the 50 day moving average, giving us a great spot to manage risk.

The CEO of Twitter, Mr. Jack Dorsey, gave us a bunch of golden nuggets to chew on this week after his latest interview with Joe Rogan. One of them being very bullish on podcasts.

Below is the daily chart of $SPOT. Bulls have control as long as price stay above the 50 day moving average. Let’s see if the stock can get up and run here. #long

How To Trade Stocks Using Charts And A Thesis: Today’s $OSTK Trade Examined

We started the week off reviewing some bitcoin proxy plays thanks to the bullish bitcoin comments from Square & Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. One name that popped up in the Exodus trading room as a bitcoin proxy with a good chart was $OSTK.

Technically, the stock was poised for a move higher after the initial break of $16 with volume (See below):

After the initial break, which I missed, all we had to do is wait for the chart to consolidate giving us a few pivot points to draw stupid lines on. We then switch gears to a shorter time frame, I like to use the 30 minute chart as seen below, to really zoom in on our action point. This give us a clear picture of where price should breakout should we get above our silly lines drawn on charts (Crazy, but true).


Once the stock traded above 18.70-80, it was off to the races, as many traders keyed in on that level for their entries. See below:


In my many years of trading, I always find to be more successful when I have a catalyst or a thesis, which is all supported with a great chart. Those two things can equal much success over your trading career, as well as give you confidence to see the trade through.

$OSTK closed near the highs of the day and we are swinging the stock overnight for a possible 3-5 day hold. If bitcoin starts to move higher expect a major squeeze to develop here. For more info on our trades in real time, entry & exits, be sure to visit the Exodus trading room.

An Update On SnapChat $SNAP

I came into the year stating $SNAP was my stock of the year for 2019 (CLICK HERE). At the time it was trading around $5 and change. I’ve shared many reasons with the Exodus trading room on why I think it is a buy, I will not go over them again.

Yesterday’s report and conference call gave me confirmation that everything is on track and going as planned. We had a small hiccup with a change at the CFO position, but the stock was beat up so bad, the news proved to be a non-event. In the call, we did not get much in terms of additional guidance, but we did get some good updates on the app, specifically the android application. Soon lower end phones users will be able to get a rich experience on the app. With many updates and redesigns on the App, things are now in motion to scale the ad platform. And, scalability is what we will be looking for going forward.

All that said, and I’m locking in some gains, selling half my position here @ $9.05. I’m still very bullish on the company, but wanted to lock some in after this move from $5. I will be using weakness in the name to re-add to my position.

Long live $SNAP, millennials, and my stock of the year picks.

Joe Rogan Podcast #1263(1): Twitter & Square CEO Jack Dorsey

Do yourself a favor and watch Joe Rogan’s podcast #1236 with Jack Dorsey. It’s hard not to be bullish on Twitter after watching this interview. Indeed, there is only one Twitter.

Jack also chimes in on Bitcoin (check 1:46 mark),

 “I believe the Internet will have a native currency and I don’t know if it’s Bitcoin. I think it will be Bitcoin given all the tests it has been through and the principles behind it, how it was created. It was something that was born on the Internet, was developed on the Internet, was tested on the Internet, [and] it is of the Internet.”

Let’s see if the Crypto plays start to move here. Invest some time and watch this interview. Long live Jack, Twitter, Square, Bitcoin, & Rogan.
