    Market Update for the week of May 4th 2015

    We could add a lot of stocks the the HPS list this week, but I feel we need to stream line it to the Best Bets of the week. This is a great stream lined List of stocks that I expect to give great returns. We have the return of many Lane Divergences in the market. These are in focus this week. I also have a few new setups that are either set up now or will be mid week.

    Nothing describes the market better then a nice chart and that what we have.. Since the last 60 min buy signal (which we moved up off of) to a nice flag now and another fast rotation on the 60..Over the last 2 days we gotten oversold and bounced and now back approaching overbought levels. The Flag is perfect and I don't see the market getting derailed unless there is some type of unseen event.

    Notice the reversal Candles on the 60 as we get oversold. This is your key signal and much better to take the combination of indicators then relying solely on the Stochastics

    The Next couple charts speak volumes and everything looks good for Monday.
    (unless Greece, Russia....(Place your geopolitical event here) overturns the apple cart.



    I will be releasing a very special E-mini trading video soon after this video. It is reserved for members only as it is one of the Highest probability techniques I use and have fined tuned over the years. I will start working on that soon, but until then here's next weeks important watchlist video

    Best Bet for this week is a perfect setup Video is out and IMPORTANT

    I am going to get right to the point. This weeks watchlist has one of the best setups I have come across in months. Each week we are taking apart this market with great HPS Charts and it's been a great year as we head into the summer months. The S&P 60 min rotation has been unstoppable for short term trends and entries. To have this momentum at your back makes things so much easier.. as you can see from the chart below.


    Let me remind you that this are short term swing trades or scalps. In a perfect scenario I am looking to hold these positions 1-5 days. There will be cases like last the last couple weeks that had some positions chop around sideways but that is ok the HPS zones are showing the levels of interest and we are seeing the stocks react to them.

    Now if we look back at the chart you will see that 60 min time frame is again overbought. The question here is do we again rotate back down or if you look closer you can see the stochastic lines start to embed up against the 90 area. This is usually a bullish indicator and We could see higher levels.

    .. and higher levels means new highs in the market...

    But that doesn't matter really cause this week's best bet is a great one. I will be taking a bigger position Monday most likely and I see a great opportunity to make some real good cash.

    The Video is shorter this week as I decided to streamline the setups and starting next week I want to put out individual videos approximately 5 min each so You can pick and choose which position you would like to study and not have to deal with the review of other stocks that are not Pure HPS quality.

    Now back to the best bet you will find most of the info on this set up about 26:20 into the video and it has the follow up top 5 of the week.

    Excited about this one and can't wait to enjoy the profits.

    The members Watch List can be viewed here http://daytradingradio.com//10for1000

    What a week HPS setups had great moves and Profits were big .. Next week's list is ready

    So yesterday I started a new format for the HPS video's breaking each setup down to it's own individual video. I have good feedback on this and will keep it this way for the time being.

    There is a new format to the HPS video, making it even more easy to focus on the individual set ups. As you can see by the trades made on DTR we have a strict set of rules that cover entries and exits. Today was amazing but next week is setting up with some great stocks . The important details can be found as a member at under the HPS video tab HPS VIDEO

    What else can i say that isn't constantly said and repeated on the show. Here is the results of the work this week. These charts get released to members and the levels marked are programmed into the Trader Dashboard and alerts you via Email or TXT or triggers being hit real time. Even though some of these are still active I want to share a couple of ones so you can see how the charts look and what you get.

    The first is a pure HPS with multiple indicators lining up

    First is a 1-2-3 Pattern then we have a Lane Divergence Set up on the 60 Min time frame that was the deciding factor in the entry the Lane Divergence so I got in with 5 Contracts and added a 4 more (LOL) that was a fat finger trade trying to sell but the news was strong and it worked out. There was news of and Activist stake taken but the setup itself proved a great level as we cannot predict this type of news but I can show you where the best possible place to see that news is.


    This shows the Divergence

    Next up is a classic 1-2-3 Channel and we look for the multiple indicators to line up at the 4th touch


    Here is your freebee and you can see it is just getting started


    Last Week's BEST BET is still one of my favs for next week and expect more upside and the new setups. That chart and info is on the HPS video site. With many others. I will continue to pin point these levels and send them out to members. See you Monday Morning

    The Basics

    This is a basic intro to Options and below are some notes to help understand and prepare for our guest speakers. This will be open discussion focused on outline you see below. These will be recorded and posted in the Members Forum, This will be also Part 1 of a continuing series. Some of the terms will be very basic. But we will have great speakers who actively trade options and have a great deal of knowledge and tips to share.

    Outline of Discussion:

    What Terms you will Learn:



    Strike Price




    In the Money (ITM)

    At the Money (ATM)

    Out of the Money (OTM)

    Intrinsic Value

    Time Value


    1. What is an Option?

    An option is a standardized contract providing for the right - but not the obligation - to buy or sell an underlying financial instrument. In our context, this underlying is a stock or exchange traded fund (ETF). The contract controls 100 shares, and is good until a defined expiration date. The price at which shares can be bought or sold also is defined by the contract, and is known as the strike price.

    There are two types of options: calls and puts. You can buy or sell either type. If you buy an option you are the holder of the contract and considered to be "long," while if you sell an option you are the "writer" of the contract and considered to be "short."

    The buyer of a call has the right to buy the underlying security (e.g. 100 shares of Google) at the strike price on or before the expiration date. The seller of a call has the obligation to sell the shares, if asked.

    The buyer of a put has the right to sell the underlying security (e.g. 100 shares of Google) at the strike price on or before the expiration date. The seller of a put has the obligation to buy the shares, if asked.

    2. What is Premium.

    In exchange for the right to buy ("call") or sell ("put") an underlying security on or before the expiration date, the purchaser of an option pays a premium. The price of the contract is known as the debit, and it is the purchaser's maximum risk. On the other side of the trade, the seller of the option receives the premium as a credit to his/her brokerage account, but is obligated to buy (in the case of a short put) or sell (in the instance of a short call) the underlying shares if the purchaser exercises the contract. Brokerages hold cash from the premium as a guarantee against short positions.

    The strike price, or exercise price, of an option determines whether that contract is in the money, at the money, or out of the money. If the strike price of a call option is less than the current market price of the underlying security, the call is said to be in the money because the holder of the call has the right to buy the stock at a price which is less than the price he would have to pay to buy the stock in the market. Likewise, if a put option has a strike price that is greater than the current market price of the underlying security, it is also said to be in the money because the holder of this put has the right to sell the stock at a price which is greater than the price he would receive in the market. The converse of in the money is, not surprisingly, out of the money. If the strike price equals the current market price, the option is said to be at the money.


    3. What is Intrinsic Value and Time Value.

    The premium of an option has two components, intrinsic value and time value.

    Intrinsic value describes the amount the stock price is above the strike price (for calls), or below the strike price (for puts). Therefore the amount by which an option is in the money is intrinsic value. It is also the value of the contract at expiration.

    Time value is defined as the option premium minus the intrinsic value. It is the amount that you pay for the possibility that it will be worth more in the future. Therefore an at-the money or out-of-the-money option has no intrinsic value and only time value.

    4. Buying Calls.

    You want leverage? Buying calls gives you leverage over 100 shares of an underlying stock (or ETF) at the strike price until the expiration date. Long calls are used to profit from upward moves in the underlying.

    Again using Google for an example, the GOOG December 500 call option gives you the right to buy 100 shares of GOOG for $500 per share up until the expiration date in December. You would do this with the expectation that the price of the option will rise, usually through the rise in the price of the underlying stock.

    5. Exiting Long Calls

    When a call has been purchased, the position can be closed in one of three ways:
    • Selling the call - Once an option is bought it can be sold at any time. This is the most common way of exiting a long position, and the only way of exiting a long call that captures any remaining time value in the option.
    • Letting it expire - If a call gets all the way to expiration, it will expire worthless if it is out-of the money (when the strike price is above the stock price). If the stock price is above the strike price by $.01 or more, it will be automatically exercised and shares will be delivered to your brokerage account. Long calls are almost always sold before expiring, since at that point they will have lost all time value.
    • Exercising your call - Utilizing the "right to buy" that is inherent in the call contract is known as "exercising" the option. This results in your brokerage delivering shares of the stock to you at the strike price. Options are rarely bought with the intention of exercising the underlying right. Taking this course also forgoes any remaining time value in the option.
    5. Buying Puts

    Want to profit from the downside? Puts give the buyer the right to sell a specific number of shares (usually 100) of an underlying stock at the strike price until the expiration date. Long puts will profit if the underlying price falls, all else held equal. Buying puts therefore offers a limited-risk way to profit from the downside. This also makes them a way to protect positions as insurance

    Exiting Long Puts

    When a put has been purchased, the position can be closed in one of three ways:
    • Selling the put - Once a put is bought it can be sold at any time, and this is the most common way of exiting a long position. This is the only way of exiting a long position that captures any remaining time value in the option.
    • Letting it expire - If a put gets all the way to expiration, it will expire, worthless if it is out of the money (when the stock price is above the strike price - See Options Pricing). If the stock price is below the strike price by $.01 or more, it will be automatically exercised and shares will be "taken" from your brokerage account. Long options are almost always sold before expiring, as at that point they will have lost all time value.
    • Exercising the option - Utilizing the "right to sell" that is inherent in the put contract is known as exercising the option. This delivers shares of the stock from your account at the strike price. Options are rarely bought with the intention of exercising the underlying right. Taking this course also forgoes any remaining time value in the optio
    6. What is an Option Chain and How ro read one.

    For any given option contract, we need to know the most recent prices and other factors. Option chains show data for a given underlying's different strike prices and expiration months.

    At the top, we have the stock information and then different expiration months. In this case we are looking at Intel (INTC) April 08. ( I know it's 08 but i put this together fast I clipped some old examples)

    • Down the middle are the strike prices. Calls are on the left, puts on the right.
    • Contracts in the money are yellow, and out of the money are white
    Each strike lists:

    • The price of the last trade ("Last")
    • The price at which there are willing buyers (the "Bid")
    • The price at which a contract is offered for sale (the "Ask" or "Offer")
    • The volume of the day's trading ("Vol")
    • The contract's "open interest" ("Open Int"), which tells us how many active contracts there are for a given month and strike.
    High open interest figures, generally near the at-the-money strikes, tell us there are more prospective trading partners who could accept your price. But note that volume does not equal open interest, since some trades are made to close positions.

    Options Roundtable will begin Wednesday 11:00am and should wrap up around 2:00pm or later

    First A big Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads. Next week looks great for the watchlist.

    I updated the watchlist into individual videos to make it easier to focus on each setup. I have 2 best Bets but could easily be more.

    Greece will be under focus again early next week but as you can see in the video and the calls this week the market has seems to have gotten bored with the outcome. I still expect sudden reactions to any substantial news, but for most part I would not expect any big market correction or change in direction.

    The 60 Minute chart continues to be key in my timing on when to be more aggressive long or short term hedged. The chart below shows us setting up again for a rotation possibly later in the day Monday.

    Market Radar Video for Monday


    The list of HPS plays this week is big and I made an individual video for each one so you don't have to bother with ones you are not interested in.

    The HPS video Tab contains the Market Radar Video and Review and the HPS list contains the separate videos. each is about 3-5 Minutes long.


    I circles where to find the Videos


    Should be a great Week coming up

    Happy Fathers Day

    China Rate Cut and Greece Deadline.. This week's watch list is out but Extreme caution early in week

    Greece and China will have an effect on the markets early this week and because of that I feel the risk of calling a technical move is much higher then average. There are a lot of reasons for a bigger pull back in the markets and a lot of people looking for that pull back. Could Greece be the catalyst? I don't think we will get to see the effects of a Greek exit but in either case this week will be harder to predict. Sunday when futures open we will give us our first clue on the effect of the recent events discussed in the video.

    This weeks HPS Video is updated but will not have any new setups until after we get past Tuesday, Right now between Greece breaking off negotiations over a new bailout and the deadline of Tuesday to see if the European central bank will continue to provide emergency funding to the Greek Banking System.

    and the the breaking news of yet another Chinese rate cut. Which some would think would lead to a pop in the Asian Markets Sunday and for that pop to carry over to the US futures open.

    The market will be in for a pretty interesting open Sunday night and Monday morning. It is fun to guess how this will play out and I will definitely share my thoughts Monday live on the air.

    As for the technical side of things as you can review from last week's midweek video and charts I was very concerned about the rising wedge on the 60 min chart and the measured move target back down to 2095-2098 in the SPX S&P 500 Index.

    See below


    From Wednesday the 24th

    "60 minute time frame is oversold and this has been a great timing tool but Greece overhangs everything. The charts have set up in a nice rising wedge pattern out of the larger channel breakout. The pullback today was expected but the energy seem a bit intense. Levels below on spx 2098-2095 look very nice. But not calling a perfect touch as the 60 min and 5 min are setting up for another move higher.. So recap.. Daily embedded and 60 ready, but many stocks over extended. Feel Greece will be a factor in the next move but not guessing how that will play out."

    Now lets look at where we are now


    So whats next? News will play a part my thoughts are in the videos and the update.

    But in short to much risk to guess or take on any new positions other then some hedges and even those in some way are a gamble. Positive news could pop and then drop us and negative news could do just the opposite as the markets might be though with the games being played behind the scenes.

    This weeks Watch list Video update can be found here.

    and this week's Market Radar Video can be found here http://benefits.daytradingradio.com/marketradar/

    Market Radar Greece Deadline and China Rate cut will make Monday fun

    Don't forget Futures open 6:00pm est Sunday Night tune in to get the first reaction to all the news

    Market Radar for July 1st and 2nd Upside Call

    From this past weekend's Market Radar till now when Greece has officially defaulted on there payment to the IMF the market has move in a highly expected manner, not because on the surface this seem like a very bad situation, but technically we perfectly setup for a pullback. I consistently map out the market day by day based on very strict "High probability Pattern" and a core set of indicators combined to give us the best opportunity of a tradeable market move. Nothing in the charts have proven this move has not been expected or in some cases not welcomed. The coinciding event of the Greek default in my opinion is a random coincidence but enough to exaggerate the move lower making the market feed on the added focus of this event.

    I have always said patterns and technical levels will be skewed and distorted and in most cases fail do to this outside event. This event has done damage to a lot of stocks and options but the one thing it hasn't done is break from the norm of the current daily SPX (S&P500)

    Below is 60 Minute chart of the SPX and as you can see it is a thing of beauty when looked at from a chartist perspective.We left off setting up in a bearish flag on the 60 min chart and I would actually like to see this break down early in the morning. Best levels to watch are 2050-2040. I will be able to narrow it down more tomorrow as the patterns set up.

    *** Note..As news will be breaking tomorrow morning and overnight things might move before the official open here in the U.S So the downward break is something I will be prepared for but we could move right up from here if news comes across in a positive light. Which ever and how it happens the overall call is for a reversal higher tomorrow.. either out of the gate or a break down and reversal.


    Below is the Daily Chart and you can see the Daily Stochastic Oscillator will be setting up July 1st and 2nd this has pretty much been a major signal for the markets (Remind me to talk about something I am just seeing on the chart).


    All this and more is discussed in Market Radar You can view that below

    Now we are not there 100% but i am going out on the proverbial limb to make the reversal call for tomorrow (preferably late morning)

    Some other interesting tidbits

    From our friend Jeff Hirsh @ Stock Trader's Almanac

    Read full Article Here


    "July’s first trading day is the fourth best performing first trading day of all twelve months with DJIA gaining a cumulative 852.55 points since 1998. Over the past 21 years, DJIA’s first trading day of July has produced gains 81.0% of the time with an average gain of 0.49%. S&P 500 has advanced 85.7% of the time (average gain 0.45%). NASDAQ has been slightly weaker at 76.2% (0.25% average gain). No other day of the year exhibits this amount of across-the-board strength which makes a solid case for declaring July 1 the most bullish day of the year over the past 21 years. "


    and one last thing Focus will be on the Referendum Vote this Sunday if no deal is reached before that. I think there is a good chance they will come to some sort of agreement before the vote but if not the "Polls" will play a part in market action as a "NO" vote will be taken as a sign that Greece want to leave the EU and a YES would probably but not necessarily mean a change in the current government.

    So the news will still play a major role in the short term trade. Caution is needed.

    Happy Fourth of July HPS Update

    Well as you will know we are waiting for the Greek Vote Sunday to get a first look on how things will open up. Things will remain murky. The feeling I get is no one really knows how this will all play out in the end and where is the end. I don't think we will see a Greek exit of the EU but more negotiations as both sides try to gain some leverage. I have a couple new HPS on the HPS page but these are still considered a bit higher risk as some patterns will break down as a result of perceived bad news.

    But that bad news should and will be a great opportunity to get a bit more active.

    There is a good overall HPS watchlist video posted here

    I discuss some strong stocks that have been really holding near their respective highs and these even though are not pure HPS entries need to be considered. Some examples are below



    I have a scalp set up for Monday and it is based off the 60 Min chart you will see the Symbol in the watchlist but because I will be watching for a certain set up the price is not added tot he alert but the individual Video is posted along with the set up in IBM.

    HPS list

    Sunday Futures open and I will be looking to get into the office for a special show.

    Sunday July 5th 6:00pm www.daytradingradio.com

    Happy 4th everyone
