All alerts for educational use only, by accessing this you agree to not make actual trades based on the information contained herein; learn the patterns with papertrading/studying.
No buy, sell, hold nor other trading recommendations are being made.
This is not trading advice, it is educational to teach swing trading breakout patterns.
How to set stops & handle gaps:
Trade rules: All entries use an initial
stop of $1.5, one and a half points. Scale in/add to winning trades every 2 points.
Use a $1.5 trailing stop to lock in wins for 1/2 initial trade position.
Example: Buy stock ABC at $40.5, initial stop is at 39.0, once it's run to at least 42, trail
a stop $1.5 behind the current price. Skip any that gap over the entry price premarket. You can reset a new entry for any that gap over a trigger to .50 (fifty cents) above the nearest whole number.
I usually enter with buy-stop limit orders, with a limit of 1 point above the entry.
Practice these rules with a papertrading/demo account to learn the patterns.
How to papertrade/use the alerts:
I use a buy-stop limit order at the resistance level price shown.
For example if the table shows stock ABC with resistance level of 24.5, I will
enter a buy-stop 24.5 limit 25.5 order. This means I'll get filled once it breaks
above the resistance trigger of 24.5, and/or if it does a minor gap up to a point
higher (in this case, up to 25.5), but will not enter if it gaps over a point above the
resistance level entry listed in the table above.
How to set exit targets:
I primarily just trail a stop around 1.5 points (or 2-day low).
However you can use 50% of the 15-day high/low range above the 15-day high
a target. For example 50% of a 15-day range of a stock with low of 31 and high of 37 is
6 points total, so 50% of that is 3 points (above the resistance trigger) as an exit target.
Any questions? Ask during the webinars (not via email). Thanks!
To learn from the patterns: pull up tickers in a 15-day 15-minute candlestick chart like
this one, to study the breakout patterns: SwingScans15day15minChart.gif
FAQ: If a ticker doesn't hit the entry trigger in one week, can I use it in a later week?
Answer: Yes -- because these are the strongest charts; keep track of prior weeks that
didn't hit yet (shown in black letters in the "Last Week's Top 10 Picks" list, for potential
breakouts in the upcoming weeks ahead, once they take out 15-day highs.

For this area, be sure to limit your logins from 1-2 IP addresses (one physical location) maximum, or our security script
lockout access permanently, this is to prevent unauthorized password sharing. Our security script monitors
login times, locations,
IP address and ISP logged in per user login.
Logging in from more than 2 IPs addresses is
or more than one physical location or computer is
Limit your logins here to logging in from a single computer at a single location, total, which is typical for most traders,
who login from their home computer. Do not login while traveling or from mobile devices like tablets nor while traveling.
Examples: Allowed: Joe Trader logs in from his home computer from his same ISP, every time he logs in here.
That's how most people access my sites, and that's fine.
Not allowed: Joe Trader logs in from his home computer, then later that week tries to login from his
ipad at a coffee shop, then from a computer at his office the next week, then from a wii-fi at a hotel he's at
while on vacation a week later, etc. I can't allow that, due to password-sharing attempts from dishonest people
who would try to share their credentials illegally with non-subscribers/friends/etc.
I have life-banned/blacklisted dozens of traders who tried to illegally share passwords or use multiple IP
logins over the last 14 years; don't be the next one. Follow these simple rules: login from your single home computer
while at home.
(or single office computer while at work.).
Do not login from multiple devices and/or locations.
I do not give second chances; just follow the rules from the beginning and we'll have no problems.

GUIDELINES for Asking Questions:
1) Time is limited, so I cannot answer detailed in-depth questions. If you have 1 or 2 quick questions related specifically to a chart I'm covering, you may ask those.
2) Do not ask questions about charts other than the new ones I'm covering each week, shown above. Do not ask about predictions for markets nor about charts I do not have in the list above.
3) You are encouraged to ask an intelligent question about technical patterns or trading strategy 'learning points' related to any of the charts chosen each week (eg "Ken is that a cup breakout in TSO?").
Do not ask about technical signals other than the types of patterns I teach (don't ask about elliot waves or stochastics or market makers or patterns other than candles, cups, volume and price action)
5) Please be sure to read my equities.com articles and watch youtube.com/tradingtelevision/ videos to learn my trading techniques before asking questions. Do not ask about strategies and/or markets I do not use nor trade.
67) Violating these guidelines/rules is grounds for termination. Thanks in advance for respecting my guidelines.
LEARNING TIPS: Getting the Most Out of Your Trading Webinar Experience:
1) Because I tend to move quickly and professionally through various topics that you'll be learning, I recommend that you take brief notes during this session.
2) As you learn each new technique, give some careful thought to how you could actually start using it in your own trading experiences. What would you start doing differently? How can you become more consistent in your trades, using what you're learning?
3) Don't just watch passively as though it were a tv show. Focus on figuring out what the specifics are that you're being taught, and how you can benefit from the techniques. Listen and take notes. Feel free to ask a few questions if you wish during this event as well, to make sure things are clear for you. I want you to "get it", so don't hesitate to ask an occasional question. I usually save answering questions til the end of the event, and I'll stay around for up to a full half hour at the end to answer trader questions.
4) If applicable, ask your family members/spouse to give you uninterrupted time during each webinar, so that you aren't distracted. If your environment is noisy, consider using headphones while listening to what you're being taught in the webinar, so that you hear everything clearly.
5) When I occasionally ask questions for interaction, feel free to participate (if you wish) -- at least try and answer the question on your own, to yourself, when I do brief quizzes or "where would you enter this trade, based on what we just learned?" types of live interactive Q&A for everyone to learn from. The more you tie-in what you're being shown to your own trading experiences, the better and faster you'll learn these techniques.
6) Be patient with yourself, and with the learning process. Try to gradually test out concepts and experiment to see what works best for you personally, based on what you're being taught. We'll be covering a variety of examples, since I have so many traders participating -- so you'll see trading charts to learn from. Each example will add to your trading knowledge, so try and see how each example can best help you with your trading success skills.
Question: What charting software do you use?
Answer: I personally use eSignal.com . Other popular platforms include NinjaTrader.com, MetaStock.com, and TradeStation. Free online charts can be found at sites like Bigcharts.com and Stockcharts.com
Question: I'm going to be traveling, can I still login?
Answer: No; as it clearly states on the site in the FAQ and near the order button, you are not to join if you need to login from multiple locations nor while traveling. As a Term of Service you are required to limit your login to a single IP address, single computer at home, total for this members' area. You cannot login to this member's area from more than 1 home location, total (IPs are logged and tracked, you must limit logins to a cumulative total of no more than 1, lifetime). You can, however login to the live Saturday webinars via gotowebinar while traveling.
Question: What if I don't get my email from gotowebinar in time?
Answer: Typically for example aol (and other isp-based emails like comcast/sbcglobal) blocks emails or delays them, if you don't see your individual login link email from gotowebinar in time, when it's time to login, contact us for help.
Question: I got a 'payment failed' email notice from Paypal, how do I resolve it?
Answer: This means your credit card payment didn't go through; usually because you have an expired date on your credit card, and/or insufficient available balance. Be sure to keep your credit card payment information current in Paypal; for example if your card is due to expire, then update your Paypal account with your new card information. For any issues with paypal, contact their help directly at their help / contact page. They will retry the payment automatically, several days later, to give you time to update it. Here's how to change your payment method from within paypal (article); here's how to update your credit card (article). Thanks in advance for keeping your cc current.
If your credit card fails to go through then of course your membership and access will be terminated. It is your responsibility to keep your .cc information current and working in paypal.
Question: You teach that it's best to trade $20-$70/share stocks, why are some higher/lower?
Answer: That's my preference, is trading instruments in that range. As a courtesy to those traders who like sub-$20 stocks I've added two 'bonus picks' in addition to the main regular ones each week. I do recommend that you focus primarily on learning how to swing trade stocks in the $20-$70/share range; typically $30-$50/share are best.
Question: I missed a week,or lost my download videos; is there any way to get old videos? Answer: No. Do not ever ask me to reupload old videos beyond the most-recent two weeks' worth; I do not have time to do that. It is your responsibility to download videos on time (and make backup copies on a second hard drive). I am providing the videos as a courtesy; when I first launched SwingScans there were no video downloads included.
Please do not contact me unless you've first read and followed all directions carefully; my schedule is hectic; thanks. If you do contact me, only use the support ticket system, never email. Click the "support" tab at top left of this page if absolutely necessary, for that. Do not ask for exceptions or other variances of our rules/TOS.
