Hi Matt. A major improvement would be to find a way to advise us
before the market closes. I understand your system sometimes
triggers after 4pm but for those of us who cannot trade options
after hours this is a real bummer. I received your email at 16:08pm
and I assure you, you are not considered as spam on my email
provider. Hopefully you can find a way to improve this over
time either by SMS or advising us ahead when there is sufficient
margin on your triggers. Thanks.
Target met ! :) Nice trade.
5 Min SPY. Potential Symmetry move ? Would take spy to 255-256
Was a nice trade, thanks Matt. Holding the 9 for now.
P.s. Sorry for the long link, can't attach properly on my
Matt, I just noticed the dividend link in the menu on the left
was no longer available. Was the section moved somewhere else or it
is not maintained anymore ?
Check out this site for free charts. It also has minute charts.
They even provide free APIs for programmers. Nice compliment to
I've been meaning to program a software that would allow me to
set rules and alerts to scan for me the stock market. While I was
browsing the web, I found this great freeware, open source software
that is still being supported today.
It's called jstock. As the name says, it is coded in Java. You
can download the executable for your OS (Windows, Linux, Mac) or,
if you prefer, download the entire source code and build it with
What impresses me the most is that you can build your own custom
indicators using a graphical interface, no need to program it in
Java. You can also setup alerts by email or even sms (if you have a
google calendar account). Indicators are already available and can
be downloaded. I use what already exists to teach myself how to
write new ones.
All this is free and I'm seriously considering donating to the
author. It supports most exchanges in the world, not only
If like me you would like to have a free software to search for
market opportunities with the knowledge acquired from BPT, this is
for you. Check it out.
Wow up 10%+ this morning ! Not sure if anyone caught it
Triangle forming ? It trades under the Toronto Exchange also
Old trade idea from BPT is holding the 20MA. Maybe due for a
bounce if the market holds.
VIMC. RSIs showing divergence on the last low
on the 15 and 60 mins.
I found something tonight I thought I should share it with
everyone...I'm amazed I didn't see this one sooner. Last year, by
looking at urls from various stockcharts charts, I posted on the
blog I could add to urls &cmd=print to view minute charts that
were posted by stockcharts members (but non-stockcharts members
like me did not have access to them). Well there's another way to
view customizable minute charts by simply modify the URL from a
daily chart to get minute charts.
Taking a simple example from Steve's newsletter today:
In the url, after VIMC, &p is the period. Can be W (weekly),
D (for Daily), 120, 60, 30, 5, etc where numbers represent minute
Then you can change the time range that will be shown on the
graph (yr, mn or dy). Keep the rest of the address the same.
For example, by simply modifying parameters from the daily chart
above, I make a VIMC 60 min chart over 0 month 14 days would
Another example with 5 min chart over 3 days
Plus you get to keep all the original indicators from the daily
chart. You can play around with the period, and time length
parameters (yr, mn, dy) for more fun !
I also used minute charts with the &cmd=print at the end.
You can still use them by modifying the same parameters and keeping
the &cmd=print at the end.
Example SPX 120 min chart over 4 months and 25 days posted by
Steve in tonight's newsletter
can be changed to a 60 minute chart over 14 days like this
Amazing, I don't need to ask around for minute charts anymore !
Hope this will be useful.
From your favorite hacker,
VRS made a very nice move today. Thanks for the suggestion. Took
my profits and taking my wife out tonight. Have a great week-end
If you can trade on Toronto exchange, this one is worth a look.
It has a similar pattern as of gdxj. I sold my position today but I
will definitely re-enter on the next pullback.
P.S. If anyone has a 60-min chart, I would appreciate the
2x and 3x Leverage ETFs have significant degradation over time.
I was wondering, what about -1X ETFs such as
SH (-1 SPY), RWM (-1 Russel). Would these
be appropriate ETFs to trade or Swing Trade when the market
eventually rolls over for a significant decline. If you have any
more examples for Commodities and other markets, I would
P.S. Happy Birthday Steve :)
Margin Level, the next indicator ? I'd be curious to map it next
to the S&P http://www.cnbc.com/id/101136515
Hi Matt, Steve, Any suggestion for a bounce target here. Gap
fill, 61.8 retracement ? Nice call on the ratio. Sold some position
this morning and standing by for a higher low.
Good call guys. Thanks for pointing out the setup. Been patient
in this one for a week now. Keeping my target at the 50MA.
Wonderful ! Thanks for sharing Matt.
Heck, I sold mine. I'm happy with the profits...I'll wait
for another occasion to reenter.
Bought some erx before the close. Thanks for pointing out the
