The past week has been very good for stocks however yesterday morning it was clear that the markets were running out of gas, stocks were getting overextended, and as soon as I saw the QQQ get rejected at the July highs and IWO get rejected at the 200d ema I raised up all my stop losses very aggressively to take profits on the reversals. That was definitely a good decision because we saw lots of fading into the close and then PANW and CSCO gave disappointing earnings reports after the close (down 6-10% pre-market) and WMT gave disappointing guidance this morning (down 6% premarket). I have a feeling most stocks will be in the red today which is okay, we can’t be green everyday.
Over the past week we were buying the leaders as they were breaking out on strength, now we look to buy the same leaders as they pullback on weakness. I love recycling the same ~50 stocks over and over. I’ll buy the breakouts, ride them higher, sell when they get exhausted and then buy them back as they consolidate and pullback to the 5d ema. In the meantime I will look for other breakouts if we can find any. When I’m buying at the 5d ema I’m typically putting my stop loss below the 6d ema unless all the short-term moving averages are really tight, in those cases I’ll buy at the 5/6d ema with stop loss below the 10d ema.

Here are my month-to-date stats on closed positions (since November 1st):
56.6% win rate
average winner is +4.65%
average loser is -1.9%
fwiw, if I was able to average these stats over the course of an entire year, with 6 trades per day and average exit position of 5.5%, then I’d be up approximately ~134% for the entire year. Just goes to show you don’t need to average 10% on every winning trade to have monster years, you obviously need a decent market but you can still put up big returns but finding the leaders and riding them hard when things are working while being very disciplined with your risk management. Of course my goal is always triple digits which is why I’m always trying to refine my strategy and adapt to changing market conditions.
