        I worked this one up last week and totally forgot about it.  Do not usually trade stocks this amount but thought it looked interesting none the less.

        It had just had the SBar off the bottom.  Still nice move.

              AR: You know the Smart Money (the “Composite Man”) are magicians. They never lose money, we do. What looks like it’s going up is the reverse. What looks like it’s going down is also the reverse. Best to learn their tactics.

            SPCE in Markup as Skout has pointed out.

            looking at the range marked #5 and #6 bars maybe see some type of consolidation here if it follows the same sort of swing pattern.

          KEN/BWA: Here’s another look. This stock looks like it was in redistribution until 3-20 happened. The Smart Money absorbed those shares sold by the public, then proceeded to markup up the stock so to distribute the shares accumulated on 3-20. Thus, I’ve named the trading range redistribution to accumulation to accommodate the reversal. Of course, where the price goes from here is only in the minds of the SM. IMHO.

          UTAD imho on daily.

          Long term weekly bias looks in Distribution

          Short term Daily bias looks Distribution as well.  It would need a convincing break above the long term resistance area before change of behavior.

            Ken/WBA: Sadly for me, I think you may be right about this stock being in Distribution both on the daily and weekly charts at least by my count. What caused me to think otherwise was the stopping action shown by the green bar. By my thinking the Smart was slowing down the advance or covering its short position prior to another leg up?

            One other thing I forgot to put on the chart was the swings marked in magenta.  They seem to winding up to something like a spring.  Smaller spread on less volume on all three.  Maybe significant.

              The gaps are interesting as well.  I would say the most important bar on the chart is the gap bar right after the Spring #3 in Jan. All the other gaps up after a decline all happened on higher-ish volume. This one was on relatively quite volume in comparison.

              Sorry for the ongoing dialog.  Way too much time spent on this one.  Will go ahead and post an updated chart.

            Hey Frantz

            I saw the same thing at first from your #2 point but went with CO absorbing instead of the supply attempts.  Just went with more of a higher level absorption instead.  Definitely could be way off on this one because it really does look like a rounding top with a cup and handle pattern forming.

        Trade for the week – GNUS distribution

        The chart looks pretty much like the setup from last weeks Bias Game in my opinion.

        Trade POE#1 starting position break of red uptrend line with S/L just above LPSY and resistance @ 1.50.  This price area has been support and resistance multiple times.

        Add on area on backup to uptrend line after break.

        POE#2 addon area would be break of 1.30 which is just below LPSY with S/L at just above 1.50 same as POE#1

        Two ways to Sell: 1) Identify a small spread/volume day at the place of primary selling opportunity and SELL; 2) SELL if the price is running away decisively from a place of primary selling opportunity.

          Kenneth:  IMHO.  I see the current trading range as accumulation.  Either we are presently looking at a LPS or a continuation in the trading range for a while.  To me, the trading range is quite narrow so I would not want to enter any trades.  However, I might consider a long position when price exits the trading range.  Just my 2-cents worth.

        I’m curious how everyone incorporates the major indexes (S&P, NDAQ, Dow) into their trading.  Obviously we should be trading long positions in an uptrend/accumulation range and short in downtrend/distribution range.  How do you manage your positions if you are starting to see weakness in an uptrend?  Would you let overall market conditions affect your decisions on existing positions or do you let market action of the instrument do that?  We are in an uptrend right now but appears to be struggling.  Is it still ok to open long positions?  How does everyone apply overall market action into their trading plan?

            Curt, I don’t see enough on this chart as yet to tell if we are getting a ChoBev which will lead to another TR.  It depends on Supply.  Pretty sure the volume spike (3) will be tested.  For me, overall market condition is the first thing I consider in my trading plan.

              Frantz:  Thanks for sharing.  If/When we see a Change of Behavior how do you incorporate that into your trading?  Do you close positions and wait and see how the TR resolves itself or do you hold?  Or do you make the decision based solely on the individual instrument.

              Curt, any charting service that lets you set the date range on the chart will work, I use StockCharts.  Start off with a daily chart for one of your stocks with a date range ending December 15, 2017 and beginning 6 months or a year earlier.  Why December 2017?  There was a general market selloff in February 2018.  Imagine you have a position and then start advancing the chart one day at a time.  As you advance the chart, you will have to make decisions about what to do.  Do this for several of your stocks.  The decisions you make will help you fine tune your exit rules.  Then do this over again but this time use a start date of August 2018 because another market correction started that October.  Once again, imagine you have a position and you are trading it.  This time test your exit rules by using them for your exit decisions.

              You can make your exit rules contingent on some general market trigger.  You can make them stock specific. You can use a combination.  Whatever fits you and your style of investing.  By doing this backtesting you will learn what works for you without putting actual capital at risk.   Hope this answers your question.

              I’ve done these types of backtesting simulations for over 100 trades so far and I find them very effective.

              Frantz:  I have tried back testing like you describe but it is always a very frustrating process for me.  I can never seem to make any rule that seems to benefit.  Each time I have created a rule the next trades don’t seem to benefit from it.  Either I haven’t created a rule that works or I am not sure what I should be looking for.   I guess I’ll just have to keep at it.

              Curt, I have entry and exit rules but they are designed for the way I trade.  I’ll be going over how I used post-trade analysis to create them in my blog. It would be great to create your own rules based on Curt.  I like what Skout said about using Wyckoff logic with indexes, it is very useful to notice how they are behaving because most stocks will be more or less following along.  I think everyone would agree that the best time to buy is at the beginning of a general market advance.  The current rally is 11 weeks  – almost 3 months – old.  Given my approach to this game, that is something I think I want to pay attention to.

          Curt, I just saw what I did by hijacking your thread.  Really want to apologize for that.

          Really good question.  I will need to think on that myself.  I have multiple positions open now that I am having the same hesitations about that.

          I would say #2 let market action of the instrument do that.  One thing for me is that I buy low, primarily small cap right now, so mine would not follow market conditions a lot of the time.

          I think Frantz answered one of my questions on something of the same subject a few days ago with.  I will put it here but will let Frantz continue his comments for himself on this.

          Kenneth, in a true bear market, which I associate with an economic recession and which normally occurs in approximately the first 1/2 of an economic recession, the best place to be is in cash imo.  Second best place is high grade bonds.  As individual investors, we have the ability to move a large portion of our portfolios to cash, something many institutions generally can’t do.  Hedging can possibly be accomplished with options, selling short, or using one or more of the inverse products that are out there, but it is tricky and not easy to execute imo.

        TLT/IEF etfs:  Back for a discussion about the rising 10-year yield curve.  If long-term rates are rising, this cannot be good for the USA, as higher rates will have a dire effect on the cost of doing business.  If true, what weapon(s) could the Fed employ to stop the rise in rates?

        • #9177
          skoutasg
          Participant

          Answering by own question.  Maybe the steepening curve is a good thing, as investors will seek to buy those higher yielding bonds on the long end?   Cost of debt financing goes up, but they put the new maturities off for 10-years.  For sure, higher long terms rates will have a negative effect on real estate values.

          Kenneth:  What’s your plan and or trade?  IMHO, you may have missed some pertinent structure since the high?  On the weekly, the stock appears in markup already?  What does the smart money have in mind nobody knows?  For sure, they will empty their inventory stores before reversing the trend.

            Thanks for the feedback skout.  Not sure to tell you the truth for a trade.  Like you said there is still some more market structure but am still thinking accumulation bias long term with maybe a pullback short term, nothing backing that up though and just a guess, not even an educated guess to be totally honest.

          Kenneth, I’m sorry but I couldn’t figure out how to just delete the chart of TYME from your post.  Everybody, I deleted the entire post, and evidently when you do that it clears every other post in that thread as well.  Hopefully it’s not a big hassle for you guys to repost.  Sorry again.

            Hey Frantz.  I kept looking at accumulation as well but what keeps me distribution is the inability to break past that gap resistance.  Maybe with that last bar it will break through.

        Wyckoffians:  Like a wolf in the night, higher interest rates are coming.  How much longer before the markets’ tank, no one knows.  Who can calculate the carnage on the US economy?  Can the Fed handle the stimulus needed?  Is the end near?  As they doomsayers have been saying for a while, eventually the piper becomes due.

          Skout, is the end near?  Not quite yet if history is to be our guide.  Historically a steepening yield curve caused by rising rates at the long end is bullish for the economy because the bond market is starting to discount surging demand and inflationary pressure.  If the economy is getting stronger, it is positive for earnings.  The yield on bonds starts to compete with stocks so the stock market gets pulled in different directions and volatility picks up but no big cracks.  Historically, it has been when the Fed becomes worried about inflation and raises the rates they control at the short end – when they start flattening the curve – that’s when the bad stuff happens.  At least that’s the way it’s worked in the past.

            Frantz:  You are correct.  Got confused with the idea of an inverted yield curve, which differs from a steepening yield curve on the long end.  Can you suggest what sectors may do well over the next year from what we know now?  Best, Skout

              Skout, not investment advice but it’s good to watch where the big money is going, so I keep up with that.  I subscribe to MarketSmith and they provide a performance ranking of their 197 industry groups which I keep track of on a weekly basis.  Here are a few at the top of the pile.  There have been some big movers lately as you can see.  In general, it would seem to me that beneficiaries of higher rates and a strong economy with the ability to easily push through higher prices to their customers would be good candidates.

            Another effect of a strengthening economy is demand for money in the real economy starts to pull liquidity away from the financial markets so there’s less fuel for the stock market.  Another reason to expect increased volatility, but not quite ripe for Niagara Falls yet imo.

            Kenneth, in a true bear market, which I associate with an economic recession and which normally occurs in approximately the first 1/2 of an economic recession, the best place to be is in cash imo.  Second best place is high grade bonds.  As individual investors, we have the ability to move a large portion of our portfolios to cash, something many institutions generally can’t do.  Hedging can possibly be accomplished with options, selling short, or using one or more of the inverse products that are out there, but it is tricky and not easy to execute imo.

        Everyone has their own way of approaching the markets.  I’m a stock guy (and a precious metals guy).  My process for stocks is to identify ones with outstanding fundamental growth characteristics using a screen based on William O’Neil’s CANSLIM methodology.  From that list, which I update every week, I look for Wyckoff structures.  I have a written Trading Plan with rules for where and when I can enter, where I place my stops, where I can add, how and when I exit, risk management and so on.  Because of my bottoms-up approach, I find myself doing a lot of stalking, waiting for the right chart setup.

        ACEL is a small cap stock in the gambling business.  They install one armed bandits in truck stops.  So far, they are in IN and IL, and they just got permitted for PA.  The stock has been on my WL since last September.  I just updated its weekly chart.  Have a look.  I am observing a test at x-y-z the last three weeks on low volume.  I am wondering if this might be the LPS for another rally, with the potential to exceed the previous highs on the chart.  Feel free to give your take on the bias-timing-character.  If you disagree with my analysis, say so, you won’t hurt my feelings.

          Bias acc.  Not sure to be honest in this one but just had to attempt it but nearly went distribution with Skout as I can see a case for that as well.

          I appreciate the in depth analysis on this.  Its hard to make heads or tails.  The price is currently in the “white space” between the support zone and resistance zone.  I would feel more optimistic about it after price breaks out over the bar labeled 2a but after that it has a large bearish bar to overcome with significant supply.  Would expect a reaction there.

          This one is interesting skout.  Thanks.  We are suppose to choose a stock for the WTC II course to trade the whole class and was looking for one off the beaten path.  This was one I thought about but did not look at.  Think I will put this one through as a vote.

          Still not convinced of the retest before launch though.  See something that looks like acc bias on M, and may be, but feeling off somehow.  Will look a little more.

            Ok, Long term bias is Distribution in my very humble opinion.  Phase |B| right now  Think we are waiting for a UTAD which looks like we may be starting.

            Need to look at smaller time frames for bias but looks like Accumulation has started as skout has suggested.

        OMC:  Another long suffering long-term candidate which is coming off its bottom.  Sector is XLC which shows strength.  Deep value stock with value of $260 based on dividend yield theory.  How long it takes to get there is anyone’s guess?

          Skout – I like the setup of this one.  I calculated a $144 minimum target based on PnF count.  The only thing that concerns me is the RS.  There has been some strength recently but long term it is still lagging the market.  Thank you for sharing.

        UGI:  If you like utilities, here’s a possible long candidate.  Target is $46.00 or 90% of overvalued, as determined by dividend yield theory.  Look’s like a good entry point?  Happy trading, skout

            I agree the stock is strong.  If anything it would be a pullback but not distribution top IMHO.

            Kept going back and forth to even try to say anything.  As one of the file names posted ways “No Idea”.  Probably should have taken a stance on this one and said I would stand aside until more chart and confirmation was shown.

            Frantz – I just watched the video.  You did a great job explaining the trade and were spot on with my line of thinking.  The exit was because of fear.  I didn’t want the price to fall too much so I got scared and exited and the price promptly reversed.  That is definitely one of the things I need to work on.  My intention was a swing trade.  I was planning on exiting at $12 near my estimated PnF target.  It came up shy before reversing and forming a trading range.

              Frantz:  Thank you for your commentary.  On the daily, XLV may have reached BC status, so where it goes from here is anyone’s guess?  Get your point.  I still believe MCK may be under distribution, notwithstanding the performance of its sector. Time will tell.  MCK is a so-called value stock, so seeing it possibly tank at this state is interesting?  Me thinks the market overall is being set up for the great rewind, IMHO.

              hahaha, I really like this one actually.  Based solely on price structure but did not go deeper.  I just usually stick to small caps.

              Kenneth:  I do own shares.  All all the shares I own I try to buy low and sell high (no sh_t).  That means I look for a breakout from the trading range formed after a final SC.  So far, the weekly shows a possible BC while the daily looks like distribution, IMHO.

              If you take the Head of the Head and Shoulders pattern there and from the neck line which is supposedly the move then it should reach around 230.00 which is just to the top of the BC.
