Week 2 - Alpha Chart Pack: Trade setups

We started this new email alert last week that contains super charged technical analysis of at-least 4-5 stocks. Based on these technical setups you can choose either to buy the stock or trade options. One thing to remember is these setups would only be for short term (max 4 weeks) and should not be used after a week.

The technical analysis would be purely based on chart, that means fundamentals of a company for these trade setups will not be considered.

For eg, if we are long $TSLA in our Portfolios or it fundamentally looks very strong, but based on chart we can short $TSLA using options for some weeks.

Long $JNJ - Target $180, Stop Loss $168

JNJ looks very promising here that has strong support at trendline since Nov. Look for a reversal here. Keep strict stop loss and book profit as they come.


Long $ABNB - Target $160, Stop Loss $150

ABNB ran last week due to a news, but chart setup seems to retest the strength in this week again.


Long $WMT - Target $151, Stop Loss $145

We had a great success with WMT last time when it bounced before earnings from $142 to $150.. WMT is going to retest $150 from here. Look for major trendline support if that breaks keep strict stop loss. Monthly call options can be the best bet.


Short $SBUX - Target $109, Stop Loss $117

SBUX broke support at major trendline last week that it has followed religiously since Jan this year. It has given up gains from the top at $124 and looks pretty weak that might get further support at 100 SMA around $109.

What is technical analysis?
In finance, technical analysis is a security analysis methodology for forecasting the direction of prices through the study of past market data(statistics), primarily price and volume. Technical analysts use charts to determine what’s likely to happen next with the price movement.

What is Swing Trading?
Swing Trading is a method of trading that attempts to capture gains within a period of 2-10 days. Generally, it’s easier and less risky than day trading. It requires less time and is suitable for traders who can’t devote themselves to watching the market. As swing trading aims to capture larger price moves than day trading, profitability can be higher.

What is Day Trading?
Day trading is a method of trading in which individuals buy and sell shares over a period of a single trading day. The intention is to profit from small price fluctuations. There are advantages such as less time risk, faster realization of profit, and no overnight holding risk. Disadvantages to day trading are the time and attention it requires one to devote during market hours, an increased frequency of trades and thus fees, smaller price moves mean spreads between the bid and ask price have a higher impact on profits and increased trader stress. Generally, it’s one of the toughest ways to profit from trading, and it demands extreme discipline. In short, it’s not for everyone.

What is a Trading System?
A Trading System is a complete set of rules which define how to enter, exit and manage risk while trading financial instruments. Using a clear set of rules eliminates the emotion in trading decisions: one of the roadblocks to successful trading. It can also save time by applying the same trading plan to multiple trades.

What does “Long” and “Short” mean in trading?
You have two ways to trade a stock. When one makes a long trade, one is purchasing shares in anticipation of them increasing in value to sell them later for a profit. When one makes a short trade or sells something short, one borrows the shares and sells them on the stock market in anticipation of the stock price falling. This provides the short seller the opportunity to buy the shares back at a lower price, therefore profiting from the difference.

What does a “Bull“ and “Bear“ mean in the stock market?
In a bull market, there is an assumption that stocks will continue to rise in price, while in a bear market, the assumption is that stocks will fall in price.

What is the Pattern Day Trade Rule? (PDT)
Per FINRA, the term “Pattern Day Trader” means any customer who executes 4 or more day trades within a rolling 5 business-day period, using a margin trading account. A pattern day trader’s account must maintain minimum equity of $25,000 at the start of any day on which day trading occurs. Pattern day-trader accounts that fall below the $25,000 minimum equity requirement will not be allowed to day trade. If a day trade is executed when the equity is below $25,000, the account will be restricted to closing transactions only for 90 days, or until the equity is brought up to $25,000.
