Completed Trades are trade ideas that have hit one or more of their price targets. Many trade ideas will list multiple targets as some traders might choose to hold some or all of the position for an additional target(s) after the initial target is hit. Therefore, many trade ideas on this site will often appear in both the “Active” and “Completed” categories simultaneously. Trades are removed from the Active Trades Category either upon hitting the final target or if stopped out before then. Once removed from the Active Trades category, these trades and all associated posts will be archived indefinitely in the Completed Trades category for future reference.

Long Trade Ideas Updated

Slow day in the market as I suspected as the market is in a holding pattern with the first two of the 5 market leading FAAMG stocks scheduled to report after the market close today (FB & MSFT). The fireworks could start after the closing bell today & continue throughout the rest of this week as the other FAAMG stocks & over 1/5 of the S&P 500 components finish reporting, with volatility likely to continue into next week &  beyond. As I'm not trading today I've taken the time to update the Long Trade Ideas on the site. All of the [...]

WEAT & NIB Trades + Ag Commodity Tracking ETN Comments

A couple of points to address on the agricultural commodities. Regarding the recent official trades in the ag commodity sector, both NIB & WEAT have exceeded their max. suggested stops & will be moved to the Completed Trades categories. WEAT (Wheat ETN) was recent added back as an new long swing trade after the previous swing trade on WEAT hit the final swing trade target for a relatively quick (6 week) 10% gain & reversed form that resistance level to nearly the penny (first chart below). As that previous swing trade hit the final target (T3), that trade was closed with [...]

NIB Second Price Target Hit

As expected, NIB (Cocoa ETN) continued right on through T1 in the wake of yesterday's impulsive bull flag pattern breakout, with NIB gapping up today to hit T2 for a relatively quick 7% profit. The move following the breakout of a bull flag continuation pattern is often as impulsive as the move leading up to the flag formation. Consider booking partial or full profits and/or raising stops, depending on your trading plan. T3 at 28.70 remains the final official target at this time with the possibility of an additional price target(s) to be added, depending on how the charts develop going [...]

NIB First Price Target Hit

NIB (Cocoa ETN) has hit the first target for a relatively quick 4.6% gain & appears likely to be headed to T2 very soon. As expected, NIB has taken out the 25.62-25.72 resistance zone with an impulsive move following today's gap & breakout above the 60-minute bull flag continuation pattern. This opens the door for a continued move to at least T2 (26.50) although the measured target for the bull flag pattern is around 27.60.

FOMC Announcement Pending, NIB Update & Miscellaneous Notes

Just a reminder that the FOMC rate decision is schedule to be released around 2pm EST today. As discussed in the recent video & within the Trading Room, some FOMC announcements, such as this one, have the potential to cause sharp reactions in the financial markets (stocks, bonds, gold, etc..). Any technical breakouts or breakdowns leading up to the FOMC rate announcement & the follow-up statement as well as those that occur in the wake of the Fed's comments have a much higher chance of proving to be whipsaw buy & sell signals (i.e.-failed breakouts) due to the sharp back & [...]
