  • Strategy: Bull Puppy
  • Stock Ticker: CI
  • Entry: 222.72
  • Exit: 219
  • Profit:  -$252.69

Talk about getting in at the very top. Uggggly Trade. This strategy return hasn’t been great recently. I’ve been working on a newer improved one but with the markets being bearish recently, its hard to get some good (bullish) data to work with.

CI Chart


  • Strategy: Bear Kitten
  • Stock Ticker: AEO
  • Entry: 21.76
  • Exit: 22.35
  • Profit:  -$207.10

Second time in a row getting stopped out with Bear Kitten. That hasn’t happened for a long time. This strategy is performs exceptionally well when the markets are more bearish and clearly with this weeks market sentiment, it’s not working. While I don’t hate this trade, I could have should have, would have taken profit manually but I didn’t….

  • Strategy: Bear Cub
  • Stock Ticker: MYGN
  • Entry: 40.25
  • Exit: 39.04
  • Profit:  $450.40

Now this is what I’m talking about! A lovely trade that made my day. It took 22 minutes to hit my target. Perfect setup.

MYGN Chart


  • Strategy: Bear Cub
  • Stock Ticker: XPO
  • Entry: 82.13
  • Exit: 82.95
  • Profit:  -$150.30

Well, the party wasn’t over yet. By the time this trade stopped out, MYGN hadn’t hit the target yet and I was down a fair bit amount already today. There was a lot of movement in the first 45 minutes of the market open for this XPO. I’m going to review the strategy to see how this one managed to trigger today.

XPO Chart


  • Strategy: S Curvenator
  • Stock Ticker: TAP
  • Entry: 66.46
  • Exit: 66.60
  • Profit:  $32.77

Profit is profit right? Not a huge gain but it will certainly make the beer taste better tonight. Manually taking profit near the top would have been nice but I was sure this trade would slowly grind higher.

TAP Chart


  • Strategy: S Curvenator
  • Stock Ticker: PWR
  • Entry: 32.71 
  • Exit: 33.35
  • Profit:  $293.76

This one did slowly grind higher and we got out near the top of this rising channel with the timed exit. Overall a nicely executed trade and we can see that the changes I’ve made to the strategy this week started paying off.

PWR Chart


  • Strategy: S Curvenator
  • Stock Ticker: BLL
  • Entry: 46.33
  • Exit: 47.41
  • Profit:  $450.30

My second target hit for the day and certainly a beautiful trade. The target was hit when we hit that little pop squeezing any shorts left in BLL. S Curvenator certainly brought its A game today and helped offset the earlier losses of the day.
