The Year of the $SNAP Back: Positions Taken


UPDATED - September 17, 2019


BotTrigger Trade Alert: $SNAP limit order set to add to our January 2020 $15 / $20 vertical call spread @ $1.75. MAX GAIN = $5 for a 185% gain so long as share price closes @ $20 or greater than UPON expiration. Our first entry on June 5th for $0.94 would bring our cost basis to $1.34.


SNAP has been cultivating a 2-month long bullish flag & is now at the precipice of breaking out above that channel / flag. The move today is occurring on strong volume with a bullish crossover on the daily MACD momentum oscillator which makes the setup easier for them to tease the asking price higher. This entire consolidation area on SNAP is best interpreted as a continuation pattern as it gears up for the next leg higher.

BotTrigger Trade Alert (2): $SNAP bought the common stock here @ $12.98 & we've also purchased the January 2020 $15 / $20 vertical call spread for $.94.



The max gain on this spread is $5 which represents a 432% gain if SNAP's share price trades @ or greater than $20 per share upon Jan 2020 expiration which is 226 days away. The technical setup on SNAP really just looks beautiful here. On both the daily & weekly time frame we're seeing back to back accelerating volume with positive accumulation uptick. We have a 1-year long CUP & HANDLE formation where the resistance neckline is approximately around $14.50. SNAP just went through a retest phase w/ in this CUP formation which is also known as the HANDLE of the CUP & HANDLE. Sometimes the Handle is fleshed out before breaking above the neckline, sometimes after, and even sometimes you get a complex breakout pattern with multiple handles that occur before the breakout of the neckline & again thereafter, much like we saw with BABA when it building energy to break out of it's 3-year cup & handle pattern. Here's the thing, much like Facebook, advertisers are desperate to expand their reach potential to their target audiences. And like Facebook, SNAP's greatest earnings quarter will occur during the Holidays / Christmas period. We want to be buying SNAP now before the Holidays where we expect the big chase to occur sometime around late fall. For now we're keeping this position small with only a 3% allocation split between common & call spread position. We may look to add on the next pullback cycle.

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
