5 Longs and 4 Shorts for Next Week (04/20/2014-04/26/2014)

Hey Traders! I'll be doing a weekly review of stocks that I think are poised to beat the markets,  longs and shorts on a given trading week. Then, I will make a daily assessment of performance up until the end of the week. Finally, on Saturday or Sunday I will post the results and see if I was right or wrong in my analysis. Keep in mind that performance will be based on prior week's closing price. Enjoy!

Let's see if this bounce holds.

See New Pics Bellow!

Note: Fellow Traders, the stocks profiled are merely kept on the watch-list for possible trades. I generally trade only 1 or 2 (3 max), stocks at a time and build positions at a maximum of 1/3 (day-trades) and 1/4 (swing trades and shorts) of trading capital on each, the remaining is cash for possible adds in positive technical moves (I never average up or down). The stop sale is set at a 2.5% maximum bellow the average buying price, it can be set higher for swings at 5% max. Also, be advised that I trade an account that is bellow 25K required minimum by SEC for day-trading. At the moment I'm Prop Trading with the goal of reaching that amount in the short term. I started with $500 about 2 years ago after a long hiatus (for personal reasons) and have already made significant progress as the account is now several 100% above that number. I have a clear goal in mind (you know what that is). To constantly improve as a trader.

Monday's Trades: Sold ZGNX for -1.77% (from prior day's close), daytraded WRES 1.35% profit, holding AVNW for 0.00% profit on paper, (Win/Loss ratio +1.35%  today  +4.34% previews = 5.69% trading edge).
Total Trades 58
Average winner +8.11%
Average looser -2.98%

Stocks I'm stalking for Monday:
ZGNX momo name to potentially tag the $3 dolla holla (eventually), WRES oil on a tear, like the breakout chart, SPRT new bullish trend from double bottom, UEPS gap filled in one day unsustainable, watch for inside day pull-back, SGOC classic dead cat bounce, not a believer in this one although would not hold short overnight, NEON still has more gas, LIVE momo, shorts in danger here, FXEN appears over-extended, should consolidate to continue, short for scalps, BIOF over hyped buyout, scalp shorts, not short overnighth, AVNW long this name, I think is deeply oversold here and ready to tag 1.71 area Good Luck Trading Amigos! 

A list of the 10 stocks in focus for first 1/2 hour of trading is regularly tweeted a few minutes before the opening. However, this list usually changes afterwards to adapt to market conditions and other possible momentum candidates. Stay tuned for more trades, @leopoldtrader73. Spanish speaking day-traders here

Remember guys; Plan your trade and Trade your Plan! Establish an R&D Process, create daily trading routine and follow your rules, do not stray from them. Use Solid Money Management (cut your losses fast). Finally, trade your plan like a robot, do not rationalize, if you do, you're probably in trouble and in the wrong side of the trade.

Stocks I'm stalking for Today:
Guys, this is not a suitable market for long biased traders, chances of profitable swings are extremely low imo. Stay in cash and do only scalps in pullbacks and flushes, generally avoid breakouts. So here we go; ZGNX out defending Zohydro (yes once again), VMEM pr one of the few green I see in pre-market, URRE up pre-mkt, generally goes when tech in the doldrums, TVIX the quite obvious in watch list, TC continuation, SPCB nailed this one yesterday quite a bit, seems to be very strong here, RTK continuation, ETRM swinging it, strong close yesterday (might get stopped out), DNN daily sexiness, DCTH has not been this strong in quite a while (years), Good Luck Trading Amigos!
