15. "Money mgmt cannot save you if you do not have an edge. It is helpful in preserving capital only if you do have an edge."

25. "The possibility of short-term trading success by pure luck beguiles people into thinking trading is a lot easier than it is."

26. "It is a quirk of trading that you could be successful for the short-term without knowing anything; that possibility fools people"

Strategy Summary

Strategies:

A successful trading strategy in a way is similar to a chess game like GO. The difference is that one is you and the other side is the market. Good chess player should be able to handle different moves by your opponent. A good trader should also be able to deal with different market movements as well. In the case of GO, the goal is to capture the bigger territory than your opponent. Very often, you have to sacrifice a few stones to achieve the goal as long as the potential territory (gain) is greater than the lost stones (loss). The concept of margin of the victory or loss is also important. In Go, if you can minimize your margin of losses (a few points), and maximize your winning (10+ pts). You can still win even if your winning percentage is below 50%. This is exactly what a successful trader does. When he loses, he manages to lose small. However, when he wins, he wins big.

A professional GO player can think of many potential moves by his opponent. This is because some players are very good in capturing territory through attacking techniques, while others are better in defending their territories by employing efficient formations of stones. Some players prefer territories around the corners and edges of the board. Others prefer the middle. Based on the understanding of his opponent, he needs to guess what moves his opponent would make. Then, he would picture how several scenarios would play out. Then, he would pick the best play. His opponent often places the stone at a point to his surprise. He has to think of a new move to counter that. A trading process should be very similar. You should always have a plan to deal with different market movements. Strategies of dealing with different stocks (opponents) should differ under different market conditions (bullish or bearish). But, there should be a common thread in discipline, loss cutting, etc. An amateur often assumes that a stock will go to his plan (up). When the stock does not, he will be at a loss of what to do next. If you are surprised, it means usually that you are not well prepared. It may even indicate a hole in your strategy.

Assessing the current environment

Before considering any trade, one should assess the condition of the market, the condition of the stock in consideration, and the condition of the relevant sector. If one is interested in the long side, one should only buy when "all the ducks are lined up", meaning the market and the sector is in a bullish mode, the stock has a strong fundamental outlook in the near term. Technically, the stock has a right setup, meaning that it is just about to satisfy a buying criteria (could be 80day - 15day SMA crossover points, or breakout point, or reversal pattern, etc.). One should avoid buying "extended" stocks, no matter what the justification might be. In other words, don't chase the stock. The key is to buy the right stock at the right time! Anything less, a transaction is a trade, which means it is for short term only and it cannot be a significant percentage of the capital. Once bought, stay on the bullish side until proven wrong. ONE CANNOT MAKE BIG $ TRYING TO TRADE BOTH SIDES! If the condition is indeed bullish, the stock should spend most of its time going up. Up-leg should be long both in price and duration, and the down-leg should be brief and short. The down-leg is the potential risk and the up-leg is the potential reward. Don't try to capture every wiggle of the price movement. If this is not the case, your assessment was wrong and you should exit your buy. The same is true on the short side.

Long stocks, which are options: C, BAC, MTG, HLS at extremely depressed levels. The stocks themselves have become call options.

Long ZIV/Short VXX, UVXY

Key Strategy: 15d-80d crossovers

It is only supposed to work for hyper-growth companies. For others, it has been treated as a test-trade, where trend is prone to reverse.

Big Negative surprise announcement.

Other related patterns:

  • Head-shoulder formation
  • Heavy volume, on a high point, with little price movement. 
  • Break-out Pattern
    • Cup and handle
    • Others

Intra-day techniques:

  • Big-Up Day or follow-through day
  • Bid-Down Day and day 2
    • Intra-day hedging
  • Intra-Day postive surprise announcement
  • Intra-Day Square-Root pattern (plateur shaped upward sloping chart).
  • Intra-Day buying a stock whose competitor announced bad earnings, using intra-day 10-15 min chart patterns.


New ideas:

Intra-day Hedging

There appears to be a greater negative drift for companies, which missed earnings, on a bid down-day.
Today, 1/24/14, was such a day. IGT, GDII, ISRG, RMD all underperformed  the Russell 2000. It may make sense to short these stocks between 10-11am when it is clear SPX will be down for good (low advance/decline ratio, high VIX move).

looking for N

After a company pre-announced on the down side, buy its competitors' stock for a trade. It requires a thorough understanding of the intra-day trading dynamics.

Intra-day surprise announcement.

There seemed to be a way of going for the initial trend (positive or negative) following a surprise news. A surprise event during a trading day does not give participants time to figure out what to do. They are forced to follow the initial trend, which should continue until the middle of the next day because there are always participants who did not learn about the event until the end of the day and they would be participating the same trend the following day. The stock should settle down quickly to a new compromised price (within next couple of days) between buyers and sellers. The opportunity lies in the transitional chaos.

Selling Calls on companies with really disappointing earnings

BBY, AAPL, LULU are recent examples, where the stock prices never got a chance to recover. The market and sector bearish sentiment contributed as well. Some studies are needed.

VXX hedging

It seems that VXX has a low delta with VIX when VIX is under 18. As soon as VIX crosses 18 towards 20, VXX's delta picks up. More data is needed. One idea is to switch VXX short into puts.

Dennis Gartman


Dennis Gartman's Trading Rules List

by OLIVIER on JUNE 28, 2009
Some food for thought for the weekend. Trading rules from great traders are always worth reading. If you spend some time to understand the concept behind each trading rule this will improve your trading skills and take you to the next level. Also check this video where Dennis Gartman talks about the concept of keeping it simple.
1. Never, under any circumstance add to a losing position…. ever! Nothing more need be said; to do otherwise will eventually and absolutely lead to ruin!
2. Trade like a mercenary guerrilla. We must fight on the winning side and be willing to change sides readily when one side has gained the upper hand.
3. Capital comes in two varieties: Mental and that which is in your pocket or account. Of the two types of capital, the mental is the more important and expensive of the two. Holding to losing positions costs measurable sums of actual capital, but it costs immeasurable sums of mental capital.
4. The objective is not to buy low and sell high, but to buy high and to sell higher. We can never know what price is “low.” Nor can we know what price is “high.” Always remember that sugar once fell from $1.25/lb to 2 cent/lb and seemed “cheap” many times along the way.
5. In bull markets we can only be long or neutral, and in bear markets we can only be short or neutral. That may seem self-evident; it is not, and it is a lesson learned too late by far too many.
6. “Markets can remain illogical longer than you or I can remain solvent,” according to our good friend, Dr. A. Gary Shilling. Illogic often reigns and markets are enormously inefficient despite what the academics believe.
7. Sell markets that show the greatest weakness, and buy those that show the greatest strength. Metaphorically, when bearish, throw your rocks into the wettest paper sack, for they break most readily. In bull markets, we need to ride upon the strongest winds… they shall carry us higher than shall lesser ones.
8. Try to trade the first day of a gap, for gaps usually indicate violent new action. We have come to respect “gaps” in our nearly thirty years of watching markets; when they happen (especially in stocks) they are usually very important.
9. Trading runs in cycles: some good; most bad. Trade large and aggressively when trading well; trade small and modestly when trading poorly. In “good times,” even errors are profitable; in “bad times” even the most well researched trades go awry. This is the nature of trading; accept it.
10. To trade successfully, think like a fundamentalist; trade like a technician. It is imperative that we understand the fundamentals driving a trade, but also that we understand the market’s technicals. When we do, then, and only then, can we or should we, trade.
11. Respect “outside reversals” after extended bull or bear runs. Reversal days on the charts signal the final exhaustion of the bullish or bearish forces that drove the market previously. Respect them, and respect even more “weekly” and “monthly,” reversals.
12. Keep your technical systems simple. Complicated systems breed confusion; simplicity breeds elegance.
13. Respect and embrace the very normal 50-62% retracements that take prices back to major trends. If a trade is missed, wait patiently for the market to retrace. Far more often than not, retracements happen… just as we are about to give up hope that they shall not.
14. An understanding of mass psychology is often more important than an understanding of economics. Markets are driven by human beings making human errors and also making super-human insights.
15. Establish initial positions on strength in bull markets and on weakness in bear markets. The first “addition” should also be added on strength as the market shows the trend to be working. Henceforth, subsequent additions are to be added on retracements.
16. Bear markets are more violent than are bull markets and so also are their retracements.
17. Be patient with winning trades; be enormously impatient with losing trades. Remember it is quite possible to make large sums trading/investing if we are “right” only 30% of the time, as long as our losses are small and our profits are large.
18. The market is the sum total of the wisdom … and the ignorance…of all of those who deal in it; and we dare not argue with the market’s wisdom. If we learn nothing more than this we’ve learned much indeed.
19. Do more of that which is working and less of that which is not: If a market is strong, buy more; if a market is weak, sell more. New highs are to be bought; new lows sold.
20. The hard trade is the right trade: If it is easy to sell, don’t; and if it is easy to buy, don’t. Do the trade that is hard to do and that which the crowd finds objectionable. Peter Steidlmayer taught us this twenty five years ago and it holds truer now than then.
21. There is never one cockroach! This is the “winning” new rule submitted by our friend, Tom Powell.
22. All rules are meant to be broken: The trick is knowing when… and how infrequently this rule may be invoked!

The trades listed below show some of the best winning picks to illustrate the types of explosive moves seen in The Zanger Report. The trades listed below do not represent actual exit prices, but merely the "total moves" from The Zanger Report buy point in various time frames.
Certainly there were losers during these time frames, but we keep stops at $1 and the gains made by these winning stocks below far outweigh the small losses seen in stocks that fail to break out.
