I'm starting a new journal that focuses solely on pinch plays. What is a pinch play? A pinch is another term for short squeeze. I find stocks or any instrument that has been beaten to death for the last few weeks/months and find an opportune price to scoop some shares or options (if available) at low prices and ride the short squeeze up. Pinches come in all shapes and sizes and also they are fractal. They can occur on monthly/weekly/daily/and intraday charts. This is considered a "technical" set up and I will provide details in following posts and throughout the journal. I have been trading these set-ups for almost a decade now with 77% hit rate (which means nothing) but more importantly with net net positive.
