CFDs aren’t traded in the US. Long/Shorts and Options are apart of BWT.
And all of BigWaveTrading positions are in Stocks (LONG / SHORT) ?
Or CFD, Opions?
You can, within IB export your current positions to excel and just DELETE columns and rows. May take 30-60 secs. Probably easier than the TeleChart file.
I will place an updated current positions post this weekend in the forums. However, this issue can easily be done/tracked on excel. This can also be easily done in any brokerage software or charting software program in a current watchlist tab or file. I will update a list this weekend. I will not be able to regularly do this (besides once a month) as it is not necessary due to the fact that we only average (in a bull market) 5 longs per week. Much less in a bear market, obviously. So they should be easily tracked by following the buys and sells on the new positions page.
Have a great Friday and upcoming weekend, JPressley.
Yes there is. I normally update my current TCNet file on a monthly basis that helps track the holdings in real time if you have Telechart. If not, I can list them in the forums this weekend and then you can begin tracking from there. The exact percentages I can not do as that would take too many calculations that I simply have absolutely zero time for. The position I exited were positions not up 25%. If a position is not up 25% you are not going to see it in the top current holdings. I do not give my selections out publicly since 2005 so I only publish what I am holding publicly once there is a 25% gain.
I would be very interested to see this as well. An occasional point in time portfolio snapshot would make it easier to track buys and sells.
Is there somewhere an overview of the current holdings as well?
And in what proportions? I saw that you exited one position two days ago what was not in the top current holdings list?
All columns are posted in the evening. The entire website and video will always be updated before 5AM EST/11PM HST. Subscribers know every single new long or short position and my sells before I ever enter the orders. This site is always updated before I place my orders. Everything is executed in the morning.
All of my orders are placed overnight in the various brokerage systems. Almost every order is placed at market to be executed the next morning at the opening bell. If I do take a position in a thin stock, I will use limit orders and state where I will be setting my limit orders. I will always notify where the cut loss is if the stock does not move higher right after purchase. You can assume, if it is not ever given (on accident), that the LOD of the signal date is going to be the final cut loss area more often than not.
If you go through some recent new position columns you will see that it is the account percent value placed in the trade in each account. In the QE market post-2008 and especially post-2010 position sizes have decreased on initial positions due to the overall choppy nature of the uptrend. Breakouts do not move higher right away and position sizes have been adjusted accordingly for an EOD methodology.
If you focus on only the best of the best CANSLIM quality momentum stocks (like GOOG FLT AAPL PCLN NFLX) type of stocks you can obviously increase size. In most normal uptrends (every single one before 2009) the normal position size started at 5% and on the best signals would be 20% per trade. 5%-20% was norm. For now, without a 20% pullback since god knows when, position sizes range from 1%-5% only per trade.
I hope this helps a bit
Buy in AMBA would happen the following morning at the open.
Keep the questions coming.
Thanks for a quick response
Does this mean that the since the article was published in the evening part,
the buy in AMBA would happen the following morning? Or still during the same day
and the subscribers get to know it afterwards?
Orders are entered in the Morning.
2%/2% are the position sizes going into risk/safe accounts.
Could you point out what price did you enter as well?
Then it is possible how far the cut-loss is from the suggestion price
Since I am really new to the BWT, could you explain what – 2%/2% means?
It is about time. I simply do not have the time I need to run the site the way I want to run it. My apologies.
A fellow blogger here, found your site via Typo3, and
I have a piece of advice: write more. Honestly, you seem like you’re tailoring the full post around the video clip. It’s clear
you know a lot, so why not use your knowledge to write something more considerable and keep the
video as something supplementary (if there at all)?
Thank you very much for the kind comments. I wish you the best in your investing adventures. Aloha.
Pretty great post. I simply stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that I’ve really loved browsing your blog posts. After all I will be subscribing in your feed and I am hoping you write again very soon!
The best approach is to keep it simple. However, keeping it simple seems to be the most complicated adventure for the human species. It may sound complicated but it is in fact the complete opposite. The summary of the above information can be summed up as “the price is always right and never wrong. Our opinions are ego and must be eliminated from all decisions. Cutting losses when wrong must be done immediately and always.” That is about it. I wish you the best in your adventures. I recommend checking out some of the books in my Books section and reading some Trend Following books by Michael Covel for a little better understanding of what we do here.
Aloha and have a lovely upcoming week!
