Tradesight Stock Picks Review from 10/29/10

With each stock's recap, we will include a (with market support) or (without market support) tag, designating whether the trade triggered with or without market directional support at the time. Anything in the first five minutes will be considered WITHOUT market support because market direction cannot be determined that early.
Hard to measure market direction on a day that was so flat and inside a 5 point range on the ES, but we will use the tool and go from there.
NVLS triggered long (with market support) and worked:

XRAY triggered short (without market support) and worked enough for a partial:

In the Messenger, Rich's FSLR (with market support) triggered long and worked for over a point and a half, which is more than enough for a partial:

GOOG short (without market support) worked:

GS short (without market support) triggered late in the day and worked:

Rich's V long (with market support) worked:

In total, three trades triggered with market support and all three worked despite the slow session.

Tradesight Stock Picks Review for 10/27/10

With each stock's recap, we will include a (with market support) or (without market support) tag, designating whether the trade triggered with or without market directional support at the time.

A beautiful pattern in EBAY waited until the last 6 minutes to trigger, so we won't count it:

No other calls triggered. That totals seven trades that triggered with market support (those are typically the ones we suggest taking) and six worked at least for a partial, most of them much better.


Tradesight Forex Pick Review for 10//27/10

Not too many triggers off of our calls today, but here is the review from the Tradesight Forex report of the GBPUSD short, which triggered twice:
Triggered short at A, went 45 pips exactly to B and reversed. We tend to take our partial at the 45-50 pip area if there is that much room between the Levels, so you might have covered a piece depending on where you put the order. But, for counting purposes, we'll say that it just stopped. I then said to re-enter in the morning, and it triggered at C and hit first target at D and more. Holding short with stop over LBreak at the moment:


Tradesight Stock Picks Review from 10/26/10

Off the report, ROST triggered (with market support) and went enough for a partial but that was it:

GPRE (with market support) did a little better and stayed in the money all day:

AVGO (with market support) also worked fine:

TIVO (with market support) didn't work:

AMZN (with market support) worked enough for a partial:

As usual, we sum it up comparing the win/loss ratio on the trades that triggered WITH market support. Ten trades triggered with market support. Seven of them worked, three did not. Only a couple of the trades went far in a dull day in the market after the first hour.


Tradesight Stock Market Preview for 10/26/10

The SP gained 2 points on the day. Some possible technical damage was done because the day’s candle settled under the opening price. This is always a cause for concern at range high which is the current condition. The 13 exhaustion signal is still active since the risk level (magenta line) remains unchallenged.

Naz advanced 4 handles but like the SP, it has the same potentially bearish condition. Price was higher on the day but settled below the open. This price pattern is sometimes known as a camouflage sell signal.

Multi sector daily chart, note the relative weakness of the banks:

The XAU was top gun, up 3 on the day. Since the price channel has suffered a downside beak, the chart is short-term bearish until new highs are recorded. The May highs would be a reasonable retracement objective.

The SOX was the standout performer for the Naz side. Price broke above the recent highs and held most of the gains on the day. The 2009 high is the next price objective.

The OSX remains trapped the recent price range. There is nothing new technically but the lack of performance in light of Monday’s weakness in the $US is of concern.

The BKX continues to feel the wrath of the weak dollar. This group continues to be a source of funds. Index member and financial leader BAC recorded an new 52 week low.

Oil remains boxed up:

Gold has retreated back into the price channel but has yet to settle below it. Until the price channel is broken, the recent price action is corrective and not a reversal.


Tradesight Stock Trigger Recap for 10/25/10

It was one of those sessions where everything that triggered worked, even without market support.
Off the report, our Top Pick ADSK (with market support) worked great:

ATHR gapped over the trigger, no play.
In the Messenger, RIMM (with market support) worked great:

AMZN (without market support) short worked great for the gap fill:

There were several other calls made, but none of them triggered in what ended up being a flat afternoon. So that's 2 for 2 nice winners that triggered WITH market support.


Tradesight Forex Calls Recap from 10/25/10

Now THAT'S what we like to see!
Including the three Value Area plays that we pointed out in the Messenger yesterday, we had five winning trades to start the week just as we went back to full size. That's good stuff. See GBPUSD, EURJPY, GBPCHF, and USDJPY below. All Value Areas triggered at the correct time for the pair.
New calls tonight and Chat. Still working on the last pieces of the new site to get everything connected.
EURUSD:

USDJPY:
Clean Value Area in the Asian session from A to B, entry was under the Pivot (dark blue line) which was just under VAH:

GBPUSD:
Main call triggered early at A, hit first target at B, raised stop and stopped higher, but all of that was pre-European session. I therefore made additional calls and the short triggered at C, hit first target at D, lowered stop in the morning and stopped last piece at E, right over the entry:

USDCAD:

AUDUSD:

NZDUSD:

GBPJPY:

EURJPY:
Value Area worked here from A to B on the European session for about 30 pips, and look how precisely it hit the VAL:

GBPCHF:
Same here, very precise, right at the start of the European session from A to B for 50 pips:


Tradesight Stock Triggers Recap from 10/21/10

As usual, this section of the report reviews yesterday's trades. We note whether each triggered with or without our market support guidelines, and we recommend that people focus on trades that trigger with market directional support as those have the highest probability of working. We then summarize the results of those trades at the end of this section.
The top five long ideas off of the report all came within five cents of their triggers and DID NOT trigger, which is interesting and unusual.
BMRN (without market support because of first five minutes) triggered out of the gate and went enough for a partial, but would have been hard to get:

VLTR (with market support) triggered short, a partial, no risk, not much there:

Rich's AAPL (without market support) triggered short out of the gate, went a point, so worked, but then reversed sharply:

Rich's AMZN (with market support) triggered long and worked great:

FSLR (with market support) triggered long and worked great:

AMGN (with market support) triggered short and worked:

Rich's FCX (without market support) was a slightly different style of play as he discussed in the Lab, triggered short and worked:

Rich's second AAPL (with market support) trade triggered short and worked fine:

Rich's FAS (with market support) didn't work:

Rich's WYNN (with market support) short worked fine:

Rich's CREE (with market support) short, no risk, barely enough for a partial:

In total, that's 7 triggers with market support. 5 worked great. 2 worked a little, no risk, just didn't go anywhere. Not a bad week.


Tradesight Futures Calls Update

Our futures calls service continued to deliver this week with another 3 out of 3 winners Thursday morning, bringing the total for the week to 8 winners out of 10 triggers. I'd like to focus on one of today's calls from an educational perspective, which was an NQ using a key Value Area level in a unique way.
Typically, in the futures and Forex markets, we use Value Areas for entry the first time of the day that the Value Area is breached. However, that doesn't mean that the levels can't be useful later in the session, particularly if the number is addressed by the market. Let's go through four charts that outline today's NQ call in 1-minute bars. In the early action, the NQ opened above the light blue (cyan) Value Area High line and breached into the Value Area at A:
NQ
This was not a trade call that we made. However, about 15 minutes later, the market again address the Value Area High level almost exactly and bounced off of it:
NQ
This means that the market has once again identified this key Level, which we had coming into the session, as support or resistance (in this case, support). From there, we made a call that is good for the rest of the day, which was to sell short the NQ at 2092.50 with a stop over 2095.50 and a first target to cover half at 2088.50.
More than an hour later, the NQ came back and again EXACTLY addressed the Value Area High level at point C on this chart:
NQ sets VAH again
These are the types of trades that you don't want to miss if they trigger, and here's how it went once it did:
NQ Trigger
The move from A (trigger) to B (around S1) was more than enough to hit our first target and adjust our stop on the second half of the trade. Note that the low was also called precisely by the 13 count off of our Tradesight Seeker tool.
As usual, you can get a two week trial of the calls. Come back this weekend for the launch of our brand new website, Tradesight 4.0!
