Thanks for all you are doing with the systems, Matt.  This new approach should be great, compared to having to deal with TradeStation crashing and a lot of the trades not being handled consistently.  We all appreciate what you guys do.

I second that; they're all

Weekend Newsletter

I second that; they're all good but this one stood out.  I also am a fan of the Youtube format.  I know there's always more that could be done on top of what already is, but if those could become a more frequent, perhaps even daily offering (if just a recording of you / Steve going through the back end and recording the newsletter as usual), that would be very helpful.

Thanks, appreciate all of that a great deal.  I'll keep looking to you and Steve to highlight these as relevant in markets you track--you do a great job, and that commentary in last night's newsletter was very clear on all of this, including the point about a couple months (which, amazingly, I missed)--but another aspect of the question is identifying when something is a likely blow-off move, as opposed to just a breather in a continuing trend.  We know them when we see them, usually, but anything you have on this (timeframes you usually look at, RSI, etc.) would help.  E.g., DBC already had that sort of mini-blow off type of move on the daily at the end of February.  Just curious whether it's a feel thing, like when you see ribbons really stretched, or whether there are, e.g., particular RSIs or anything you look at.

Matt, for DBC or other commodity funds, what would you look for as an entry point for new longs (in terms of time, price, etc.)?  Trying to get entry points in uptrending instruments, and distinguishing between good opps to get in versus letting something that was getting overdone unwind, is always tough for me.

Probably still will have 10

Probably still will have 10 offers and go over asking.   

Thanks for the system trade

Thanks for the system trade updates and heads-ups, Matt.  Steve, hope you are feeling better and continue to.

In theory (and practice, according to John Carter), buying certain names that have been crushed in 2021 today with a hold period of a week can work well.  Makes sense in view of tax loss selling, institutions not wanting to hold losers on the books at the end of the quarter, etc.

Ah, OK -- traveling later

Ah, OK -- traveling later today, but all good here no matter what.  Thanks for the great content and ideas.

Will you record it, Matt?

Matt, the NASDAQ Composite can

Matt, the NASDAQ Composite can be traded for at least some purposes using ONEQ.  Decent spreads.  Low volume, though, so whales have to be a little wary.  It doesn't get talked about much and doesn't get much action, but it tracks the NASDAQ composite pretty well.

Liking the Youtube format.  I also like the new player, with the ability to skip to specific charts, and the actual chart links, but the Youtube versions are great as well when offered since I can put it on 1.5x and cruise through.  Neither of you guys speaks slowly or anything; I'm just used to it from listening to podcasts at 2x most of the time, and always am short on time.  Thanks for the great work.

Thanks, Matt -- appreciate it.  Looking forward to seeing those things you've been working on!

Thanks, Matt -- appreciate it.  Seems some hopes have been dashed (so far) relative to expectations earlier this year regarding legalization.

Matt, curious whether you guys

Matt, curious whether you guys have a view on pot stocks ... here's a quick amateur-hour chart from me of an ETF, POTX.  

Thanks for tracking the systems

Thanks for tracking the systems and providing the updates, Matt.  Hope folks have done well the past couple days more generally.

Thanks, Matt.  Hope you feel

Thanks, Matt.  Hope you feel better and that it's nothing serious.

Thanks, Steve.

Thanks, Steve.

Re AAZZF / AAZZD, I, also just have it shown as 002209104 with Schwab (still, as of today).  

Matt, thanks again.  I appreciate all that info and guidance.  I'm asking a different, simple question.   I'm just asking what it means for a DVT to be "hit."   E.g., is a daily DVT hit if the DVT value is hit intraday or does it require a close under it?  I'm not saying I'm going to religiously get out the second the price is touched -- that's what I was attempting to explain when I first posed the question -- but you need some kind of objective criterion to determine whether the DVT has been hit in order to, e.g., measure consecutive DVTs being generated without being hit.  That's what I'm asking about:  what, for that purpose, it means for a DVT to be "hit."

Matt, thanks -- apologies for not being clear.  I appreciate the art of all this and the need for people to have an approach that makes sense for them.  I was just curious what you use for purposes of tracking these DVTs and what you mean when you talk about them being hit.  I.e., for that purpose, or any others you see fit to share, what does it mean for a DVT to be "hit?"  Is it intraday (or intraperiod, in the case of the 2-day) or something else?   That's all I'm asking about in this case.

I completely get that in terms of actually making this actionable, it's on the trader, and I didn't mean to make you type out all that again.  I've been tracking your explanations of various approaches and appreciate the time you've taken to do so to help us out.
