Apes Throwing Bananas At Wall Street

What a bazaar world we live in today, where Apes have truly taken over the streets– specifically Wall Street. Today was a good day for those involved with the crypto proxies, specifically $COIN & $SOFI, both of which have been supported on my blog for weeks. Today, was the day that I trimmed those positions in my swing account, taking gains, while leaving positions in longer term retirement accounts in-tact. The sales put my month to date gains at 9%, a comedy compared to my crypto gains.

Last Monday, just as we have been doing every Monday, I give tickers to watch for the week based on a particular scan in Stocklabs. Here were the picks last week: $SOFI, $SPWR, & $PROG, all of which were money makers.

Let’s see if we can repeat the same success this week with our Monday momentum scan. Members to our screening software, can save this scan HERE. Non-members have no fear, I’ve imported the screen to finviz for your viewing pleasure: CLICK HERE FOR CHARTS.

I’ll be watching for trades this week in the following:

Be sure to join us inside the Pelican Room, which is pretty much our discord stock screening server. Let’s make it a good week!

$SOFI tops the momentum scan as we begin the week, fetching an upgrade from Morgan Stanley with a $25 target. $SPWR also makes tonight’s scan, another position I’ve been digging my heels into (Solar is hot). And, $PROG was on scan all day for the small caps, which turned into an overnight hold for me.

Today’s full momentum scan can be found HERE, and Stocklabs members can bookmark the realtime screen HERE.

It was a solid start to the week so far with my largest position $SOFI breaking out. Futures are a bit soft here, but let’s see what tomorrow brings…

The Fourth Quarter Begins….Here Is Your Weekend Scan

In between buying and selling NFTs this weekend, I wanted to a run my weekly scan to build a watchlist for the upcoming week. I use the momentum Delta scan in Stocklabs, at the close on Friday, to find ideas to watch the following week. Members inside the Lab can save screen HERE, for those without access I’ve imported the weekly scan for you HERE.

Oil stocks continue to litter the scan, with king $XOM closing out at the highs. It could be a big week for oil related names should we begin to see a squeeze to $80 in the commodity. Bitcoin also looks ripe for a breakout through 50K, and I see a number of bitcoin proxy plays on scan: MARA, CAN, BITF, HUT, & CAN. $CF also had a monster day which could lead to some heavy momentum in the Ag sector. Indeed, should the market bounce here we may see the $100 tomato sooner than later.

Here are some of my favorite charts to watch this upcoming week:


As we begin the final quarter of 2021, here are your leaders in the iBankCoin Stock of the Year contest. Oil and bitcoin have been your big winners this year:

Tricky Tricky Market

The Nasdaq closed red today, but I was green in my trading. The market closes on the lows, yet our Momentum Delta scan is loaded down with tickers.

Which way does the tide turn this week? Beneath the surface there was some life, specifically Energy, Alternative Energy, & Financials. The Frackers are squeezing and Biden is just getting started, or is he? Indeed, 2021, the year where Meme stocks reign supreme, and nothing is what it seems…..


Here is my watchlist heading into the week, all which come from the momentum scan in StocklabsBABA, SHIP, CLOV, DIDI, SEEL, SDC, WKHS, BTU, HUT, RMO, NOV, SOLO, PATH, CGC, SRNE, JMIA, VLDR, & SPWR (CHARTS)

If all else fails, I’ll look to build my VXX position– just in time for Halloween. Tricky Tricky Market.

Conviction Long

There are not too many stocks I feel comfortable owning here. The other day, I mentioned that $TWTR calls seem like a good opportunity, and indeed it has been– now pushing through resistance:


But, I’m not here to talk about the Blue Bird, I’ve already posted about it, as well as Captain Raul. I’m here to talk about another position that is busting out in size, a name I have in my swing trading account as well as my long term account, and that stock is $SOFI.

$SOFI got a huge upgrade from Jefferies today, announcing a $25 dollar target on the stock. The company is making some huge strides with it’s banking charter and has already made some successful acquisitions, one big one last year, Galileo. The company is making waves with digital currency and digital banking, and could end up being an acquisition target itself for those legacy banks slow to act. The stock is once again on my high breakout screen inside Stocklabs, and I have no intentions on selling here…
