Member Trade Alert: $SHOP

BotTrigger Buy Alert: $SHOP (Shopify) bought @ $91.81. Although we would have loved to add this lower during a deeper correction, the trend has been too strong to ask for a 50 day moving average bounce. We can see that throughout the entire year the stock has been a buying opportunity at the 21 day moving average and followed suite with higher prices there after. Today $SHOP has squarely bounced off the 21 day moving average, up intraday from a low of $81 to up there above the $91 area. That's a huge move in one day reversing the lows. What's more, this move is happening on a record surge of volume as the highest ever. That's not retail money moving the needle, that's the big boys moving the stock. As the saying goes, if the big boys want it, we want it. Expect some back fill here as a pullback from such a giant surge is normal. So one could ideally wait for pullback anywhere from -$3 to -$7 from our entry. As always, we will update Members via mobile as the trade develops for our next area to add into strength as the trend chugs higher, or if we get an official BotTrigger sell signal if/when this trend gets tired.

For any new members who are unfamiliar with what Shopify does, they are the largest ecommerce website platform for businesses to sell their products/services. Their specialty is ecommerce. The similar competitors howbeit different would be Square $SQ & Wix $WX. We're allocating 3% to SHOP here as a starting position and will be allocating another 3% onto $WIX as soon as we get positive confirmation that it's ready to bounce off it's relative low point which is where $WIX is currently at.

Some of the greatest pearls shared by Jesse Livermore:

“Money is made by sitting, not trading.”

“The desire for constant action irrespective of underlying conditions is responsible for many losses in Wall Street even among the professionals, who feel that they must take home some money everyday, as though they were working for regular wages.”

“Buy right, sit tight.”

“Nobody can catch all the fluctuations.”

“There is a time for all things, but I didn’t know it. And that is precisely what beats so many men in Wall Street who are very far from being in the main sucker class. There is the plain fool, who does the wrong thing at all times everywhere, but there is the Wall Street fool, who thinks he must trade all the time. Not many can always have adequate reasons for buying and selling stocks daily – or sufficient knowledge to make his play an intelligent play.”

“It takes time to make money.”

“Don’t give me timing, give me time.”
