Members Trade Alert,Update, & On-Watch: BIDU, TSLA, BABA, HOME, SQ, ADBE, BABA, AAPL, NVDA


UPDATED - AUG 17, 2018 - FRIDAY


BotTrigger Update & Trade Alert: $BIDU bought the January $250 / $280 vertical call spread @ $4.18 with a 2% allocation stake. This trade stands to make a 518% return upon a test of the all time highs so long as BIDU closes @ or above $280 UPON expiration. Yet our plan isn't necessarily to hold it for until expiration... as usual, we may sell this far before January if price gets vertically north too fast.

MAX GAIN: 518% gain if BIDU is @ $280 or > greater than upon expiration

BREAK EVEN: $254.85 zero value is lost or gained upon expiration

MAX LOSS: BIDU @ $250 or < than upon expiration.

BULLS GAINING MOMENTUM - PLAN TO ROTATE OUR COMMON:

There is such a thing as the waning of selling aggression & the reversal of bullish momentum starting to take over. BIDU exhibited this to us on Wed w/ a strong bullish hammer. The hammer candle bar tells us quite a bit. During this candle’s formation, BIDU ran down quickly, only to reverse. Opened up near $211 and fell to $207 intraday & then entirely reversed the downside, not only did prices reverse, but they reversed beyond the initial opening price closing that day @ $213.47thereby creating the bullish candle. The following day, BIDU printed what's known as an "inverted bullish hammer." U might think that sounds bearish, but not when it's an inverted hammer that occurs near the peak bearish zone of the trend, being the "follow-thru" subject to the Bullish Hammer that occurred on Wednesday, whilst occurring on a GAP UP no less. And now today we have another gap up, again bears trying to sell into the move is fine, but they are losing their selling ability as the bulls accumulate & reclaim the stock. The dips are bought. Behavior is changing down here.


We have a lot of gaps on the upside that will inevitably be filled. At the same time, do not underestimate the shenanigans where we may see a retest of the lows to further test if the bulls are real. I'm betting they are. This is China's Google, not some rinka dink stock.

THE PLAN

If we get a retest of the lows anything under the $212 to $210 area we will rotate out of the common stock in lieu of buying DIM (deep in the money) call options or vertcial call spreads of some kind. I will be modeling both a conservative trade & high yielder targeting a retest of the highs.

ON WATCH

Also on watch for entries: TSLA SHOP BABA ADBE NVDA SQ & AAPL only on the next relative pullback & lastly $HOME is looking really good any moment. Market update after the bell.

AUGUST 16, 2018 - ORIGINAL POST


BotTrigger Trade Alert: $BIDU @ $217.12 for a 5% allocation on the common stock for now. We have a triple bottom setup occurring on BIDU's annual support line which coincides with the original breakout zone or 2016-2017. This bounce is also occurring with a confirmation on RSI & Bullish crossovers ocurrring on several of the momentum oscillators. We also have a very powerful reversal signal showing it's hand on the candle bar formations, yesterday w/ a bullish hammer & then today showing an inverted hammer bar. Both are considered reversal signals when they happen towards the peak ends of a downtrend. W/ Chinese stocks beaten up as bad as we've seen & now $BIDU down -27% from it's 2018 high, we'll take it.


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.”

These results are based on performance results that have certain inherent limitations. Each trade is executed in BotTrigger's S-Corp trading account in the BotTrigger portfolio managed exclusively by Mike Saad, founder & CEO of BotTrigger of Lovical Inc & MomentumStockAlerts.com Inc (umbrella corp). The performance results shown in BotTrigger's portfolio may vary at certain times of the day due to our API feeds that pull the current price of open or closed positions from Yahoo Finance.  Although BotTrigger has consistently outperformed the S&P 500 benchmark by more than 50% per annum since inception, August of 2016, no representation is being made & or promised that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to these being shown. BotTrigger so far this 2018, is on pace to achieve it's largest annual YTD return now in it's 3rd year since inception. This performance assumption is not promised but is being communicated that so far we have achieved the highest rate of return on a YTD & YOY (year over year basis). If a majority of our trade setups fail to materialize based on our analysis or trade thesis, it is absolutely possible to close below our running 50% average if not negative. BotTrigger may & often times does  implore hedging strategies and/or stop-loss precautions in the event that the BotTrigger portfolio sustains heavy losses that might cause the cumulative net value of BotTrigger's portfolio value to near below our 50% threshhold of YTD gains. Our goal at minimum is to be up YTD by up to at least 50% or greater. In the event the net weighting of our trade allocations drops the entire portfolio value below this threshold, then triggered sell signals are generated to reduce to a sizeable position of cash.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results and may not reflect potential deductions for fees which may reduce actual realized returns. Any historical returns may not reflect actual future performance and any investor on BotTrigger may experience different results from those shown. All our trade alerts are real-time but in some cases may be delayed due to technical delays with our SMS/MMS delivery provider or the speed in which a Member's mobile carrier accepts the depository of our delivered communications and then how soon a Member's carrier may deliver that trade alert/ message to our Members. Delivery times are nearly instant from the time we click "SEND" and often delivered to Member's mobile phones within 10 to 30 seconds; but on very rare occasion that delivery might get bounced or delayed; again this is rare but it has been known to happen. There will be times that BotTrigger's communicated entry is below or above the pricing our Members may receive communication due to market delays or delays with our SMS/MMS Mobile Text delivery provider, EzTexting
