WHAT'S NEXT AND HOW DO YOU TRADE THIS MARKET?
Carefully. Very carefully. There are ton’s of opportunities in this sea of volatility, but you have be careful going in. We are still trading our Jumpers but think carefully about the ones we jump in on as most companies are unable to provide forward guidance.
UPDATE: WHAT ARE WE BUYING THIS WEEK?
The last 2 weeks we were trading precious metal ETFs, (we went long in NUGT at 6.2/share and are staying in till the mid teens), we traded SLV – and are out for now, and looking at buying the fund AG instead. This week we will be looking at some retail at bottom, JETS (airline ETF).and will revisit oil stocks at bottom soon (USO). Also have a fresh short in for TSLA at 530/share, expecting new numbers this week. Even with lots more volatility these stocks may be at bottom. Will day-trade the indexes too using our predictive tools… but its such a see-saw, you have to watch it carefully or it will eat your lunch. March saw less “jumpers” plays mostly because it was the end of earnings season and we were being cautious with the volatility for that strategy. The net result was a 90% win ratio. We will be doing much the same in April. Check out the performance link to the right.
BAILOUT PACKAGE - WHAT IT MEANS
6 Trillion is the total package so far, but what's an extra Trillion here or there anyway...
The markets loved it, and ended yesterday with the biggest gain in history since 1933. We traded it and make money on UDOW, GOLD and some others. Our jumpers are still in play, but acting a bit abnormal. Micron did as we forecast. Nike was a win.. Even GameStop (GME) popped as expected, but would it have had the stimulus not been there? Maybe.
Here’s the deal. We are far from being out of the woods on this. Even if the biggest bill ever passed in Congress makes it to Trumps desk, this is going to be a roller coaster ride for at least another couple of months. The news will be bad in some sectors and good in others. For most ii means ridding it out on their couch watching Netflix and Prime. StockJumpers will be working the “Jumps” , trading the volatility through it all, as there is a lot of money to made – trading smart.
Unlimited QE for the FED to simulate things.
This video cartoon explains QE. It’s old – from 2010 and though meant to be cute and funny… It lays bare truth of what it is. Printing money. 4 trillion we are told in QE.
The Fed will buy Treasuries and agency mortgage-backed securities “in the amounts needed to support smooth market functioning and effective transmission of monetary policy to broader financial conditions and the economy,” and will also buy agency commercial mortgage-backed securities, according to a statement.
3-15-20 The FED ponied up 1.5 trillion in short term liquidity to stimulate markets. Did it work? Is printing more money the answer? Well – its worked in Japan for some time… but America isn’t Japan. Trillions in value is being wiped off the books. On March 17th at the FOMC will they lower rates further? (update: Sunday night they dropped it to 0 and began QE5)
The Stock Market Sell Off: This correction is LONG overdue. Rather than operate a free market and let the market adjust itself, government has to manipulate things with new and bigger stimulus packages. This creates a distortion of the way people invest and consume and the eventual correction becomes even nastier. We don’t learn these lessons it seems – without pain.
It’s time we get back to reality and operate a real market again, but will that happen? Nah. Bankers and government want to control it and they will fiddle with it, thinking they can “fix it” for their benefit. One thing is for certain – we will see volatility for some time to come. Huge downs and ups, until the dust settles. Don’t trust the market. Be in cash, and trade opportunities and return to cash. Think like a Guerrilla trader, and you will be fine. Strike only when you know you can win.. then back to safety. You can profit in a huge way from this mindset… just don’t be a deer caught in the headlights.
What’s next? Likely a war. That always creates the perfect distraction.
MARKETS GET POUNDED ON PANDEMIC FEARS!
What Does It Mean For Trading Stock Jumps? VOLATILITY MEANS MORE PROFIT!
We love volatility. As long as you get the direction right… this is opportunity central for traders. This market “correction” is good for us all. The markets have been crazy and needed a catalyst to correct itself….. and though this may not be the “black swan” event most of us day traders have been waiting for – its significant and will let some air out of the tires. Finally.. perhaps there will be some logic to the madness – after the dust settles.
DO NOT make the mistake of buying in just yet. We are far from the lows of this.This is going much deeper. In the mean time check out our Jump Reports and how we are trading the catalysts, which are somewhat immune to the rout. Gotta love a crisis.
Stitch Fix [SFIX] - Biggest Profit Take This Year
We went short in the extended trading hours, based on our data AFTER the broad market had already sold off over 2000 points. Here is what happened… It dropped 44% and we made a ton of profit. Risks like this aren’t for everyone, but the reward was totally worth it.
2020 Begins With a Bed, Bath & BOOM ! ...
You always know — when they halt trading during an earnings release, 99.9% of the time there is devastating news coming. That’s what happened with our first trade of 2020 – which was BBBY. First they halted trading, next when they released they not only posted a miss and a HUGE loss.. but said they were not going to even post their Full Year Guidance. Yikes. And so we sat and waited and 45 minutes after market close, trading resumed and the stock price plummeted 25%. StockJumpers members were short.. so it was an instant windfall.
Here is what the chart looks like now (mid-session next day)
At StockJumpers we trade catalyst events with our amazing prediction technology that uses A.I.3 to model the most probable direction of a stock jump. It’s accuracy is about 80%. The Jump Calendar below are the earnings reporting events we are working next…expecting to jump 5-20% within minutes after their earnings release.

Ready to rock and roll with our production release of the Trade Portal software, which broadcasts trading signals to our members and has numerous automated trading features built in.

SMS messaging for Trade Alerts and Notifications. This means you don’t need to be on the Trade Portal app to see your Trade Alert messages.
Bracket Order Type Support. Set your Take Profit and Stop Loss and walk away – now with full automation
Enhanced Graphical Interface.
The platform will be updated the week of September 2, and for members who have access there is nothing you need to do – other than review the Users Guide for operational changes.

The Trade Calendar just got interesting as summer heats up with the big mover jump trades. And just in time with the release of the new Trade Portal software with Trade Assist.

Long awaited, we are finally there, and though technically this is a Beta 2.0 release, and will need some cosmetic improvements over the next month, the operational aspects are stable.
