  • Basic Strategy:

  • Evening - Identify potential trades/entry points with the Daily Chart close

  • Next day - Use the Intraday 5-Minute Chart to find precision entries/exits based on the Stock Price candlestick-patterns

  • Trade the Option, not the stock

  • Stay in the trade until either of the following is met:

    1. The first major retracement begins, based on the 5-min price candlestick-pattern of the stock being traded

    • A price target is reached

  • Exit the trade the same-day (day-trade)

  • Basic Trade Entry Rules (Watch the Stock, Trade the Option)

  • On Pullbacks to moving averages – on the bounce

  • On Breakout from technical continuation patterns

  • Trade in the direction of the S&P (Watching the SPX)

  • Do not trade in the first 15 – 20 minutes after the mkt opens, or longer, until SPX has identified a tradable direction.

  • Do not trade on “slow” trading days, or SPX Doji days

    Note: There are well over 150 trading rules plus several dozen technical pattern rules, and a set of Option selection rules

  • What I do

  • Select 3 to 7 trading candidates each evening - Daily chart close

  • I select from my personal trading list of 11 stocks:

    AAPLAZO BIDU CME FSLR GOOG GS ICE MA OIH POT

  • And augment with 1 - 3 other stocks that have “moved” into entry patterns that day.

    For Example, my list for today (5/20/09) was:

    AMZN AZO GS MA PCLN RIMM

    I actually traded AMZN & AZO today. These trades follow:

FOMC 2:15 PM decision day Special Rules:

Stay in any trades you are already in from overnight the previous night

Don’t enter any new trades before the FOMC announcement @ 2:15 PM

Then, wait until SPX 5-min chart gives you the “all clear” to do any trading

My 4 Most Important Rules Are Posted

In 3 Places Above my Trading Desk (really):

Any number of trades/day producing a day’s profit of $100, $200, $300, or $400, yields the annual profit listed if averaged over the approx 250 trading days/year.

No profit is too small!
