Paul will focus on the following 3 guerilla strategies for trading stocks: - Swing trading from the hourly chart when the market appears stuck in neutral. 80% of the time the market is more sideways than anything else, so adding some swing trading methods using hourly bars can be very good weapon to add to your arsenal. - Gap plays on individual stocks that set up 3 day moves, regardless of market direction. Knowing these gap plays can create rapid 3 day moves, and often these plays will follow through even when the market does not. - Finding true "chart changing" events on the daily chart. If you look at the major turning point in a stocks daily chart, the majority of the time the turn happened due to one of several technical events that will be covered in detail during this presentation. *** Gerge de Marcilla will be doing a presentation titled "30 Minutes A Day". In this presentation George will show how you can review all of the commodity markets and find some of the most dynamic trades of the year in just 30 minutes worth of research on any given day. George will teach a strategy that is very simple and very effective. Since there are things setting up in the commodity markets all the time, George will go through examples that have just taken place in the markets. George will then take the strategy and show how it can be applied to both swing trading (i.e. holding a position for a few days or a few weeks) and to day trading.
