Lets do a 'Trade Review' of the week...
We kicked butt again with an almost 90% Jump Zone profits
Some interesting twists and turns in our trades this week… and I have posted next weeks trades on the upcoming page.
A quick Friday morning quarterbacking on what happened this week… its kinda interesting if you are a “real” trader. Most of you reading this are not… but pay attention anyway you might learn something useful, that can make you a lot of money.
As you know, not all trades unfold the way we plan. StockJumpers offers an information edge. A powerful one, where we deploy our predictive intelligence tools to do trajectory analysis and dial in the right direction of major catalyst events. Which we call “jumpers”. If you have been tracking our performance over the last years, you know this is 90% of the game.
BUT – its not enough to guarantee profit as you have to manage your emotions and deal with the nuances of the trade. Always those pesky nuances… but it can make you a lot of extra profit if you are skilled enough (meaning – you are professionally trained in how to trade jumpers).
So lets review.
Day 1 – Monday was SWITCH, INC. This was a classic “jumper.” Our trajectory analysis got the move as down. (read the jump report here) and a few moments after they announced… it slammed down about 11%… and then over night kept going and going and going… for whopping 26% Jump Zone move. Good trade. Slam dunk. Easy profit. Even an idiot could make money on this one. Assuming of course you got the direction right. (which we do at StockJumpers more than 80% of the time)
Day 2 – Tuesday was a bit more challenging. We traded Dave and Busters Entertainment (PLAY) and in the trade room is was Cloudera, Inc (CLDR). We got that PLAY would be a beat on the main metrics and the stock would go up AFTER an initial dip. Well here is the chart… it did what we forecase but the dip was more than our stop… so what do you do. Most traders take a loss and walk away cause they don’t think like us. If you were in the trade room you saw us WAIT FOR THE DIP and then enter at the bottom of it and ride it back up. Now – honestly, how did we know that was going to happen? Its all in the magic sauce – which I will save for another article. Anyway.. not our best trade, but we followed the data and make a nice 8-9% off the move.
The REALLY big deal on Tuesdays after-market was the Cloudera (CLDR) trade in the trade-room. If you were there… you watched us call the short and that it was going to be BIG. And it was… 41% was the move!!!! Even if you got in when it was sinking 10% you made money. Rare, but these do happen. We slaughtered on that one. Check it out….
Day 3. OK… here is what happened on Wednesday which kinda sucked after all the profit rolling in. We traded NOVAGOLD (NG). We had high hopes for this trade because we traded the pre-jump on it a few weeks ago and our Investors Club members pocketed a cool 13% off it. One of our best pre-jump trades to date. Ok… we ran the trajectory analysis study on NG and we got it short even though we knew they would have good numbers on their release. Why short? Cause we got in the data their costs of operations were higher than expectations. Remember the big money traders, trade on the news of the future – not the now. Anyway… the direction was right our data was good… and it did go down, but it was a whimp trade. Look at the chart. Can you say “whimpy”? Thinly traded and no one cares about it. Well – we thought it was going to be our trade of the week and SWITCH was gonna be the dullard… we were wrong, but our members made money.
Day 4 – Which brings us to yesterday – Thursday’s PriceSmart (PSMT) the Costco of Latin America, trade. We got an up move after release in our data and it did what we forecast… but we were a bit skittish of the move… even though they beat and we got out a bit too soon on our trade room trade. Here is the chart the next day… and it “evolved” into a very sweet 12% move. Cha-Ching. Our trade-room only snap trade was WD-40 the lube-guys and it also did what we forecast as a short and made 6%.
So that’s the Friday trade review of the week. Not easy trades really (except for Monday’s Switch… BUT I ask you this simple question. Based on the above can you make money with that information edge – or is all this beyond your pay grade?
The reason I ask is cause most people CANNOT DO THIS. Too stupid you say? No, too scared for one, but really the real reason is its outside their paradigm. People are trained to buy a stock and hold it.. not trade white-knuckle-ride jumpers like we do. Those that do “get it” though (and there are not many… REALLY get it. I’ve said this before and so has Ray in this forum. There is a true reason why 1% of the world has all the money. If you’ve read this far.. you know the answer. And its not cause they were born with a silver spoon in their mouths – though some were… its cause they understand risk and yes they have the smarts to act on it.
The sheeples never will.. and the wolves will eat them. Sorry to sound harsh, but its the hard-core truth. Its how its always been and always will be.
OK, enough sermon. Now what about next week… Think you can pocket 20-40% profit. Let me show you how. This is the line-up Go to the upcoming page and grab your jump reports (when published next week.. and get into the trade room and make some serious coin.
Oh and don’t miss out on the pre-jump trade signals. I just posted three new ones, and we will make AT LEAST 15% off these in the next 2 weeks. chaaaa- ching.
See you in the Trade Room.
