In the event you’ve been following me for a when you know I’m not one to only speak. Once I become involved with issues just like the plastic disaster in our oceans, I take motion. The seashore cleanup is just one example. I encourage you to take motion as properly.
Arrange a cleanup near you. It might be at a nature reserve, nearby mountaineering trails, a seashore, the banks of your local river, or perhaps a park. Wherever you reside, you can also make a difference by organizing a cleanup. The more motion each of us takes, the much less plastic results in the ocean.

Trading Classes: the Fact About Preparation
Lately I’ve had a run of profitable trades. Right here’s the deal…
I’m on a run as a result of I give attention to the patterns which are working greatest for me.
I understand that sounds actually simple and doubtless boring. However it’s the best way I maximize my success.
Let’s use my greatest current trade for instance…
Tautachrome, Inc. (OTCPK: TTCM)
Tautachrome is an IT company targeted on smartphone apps and augmented actuality. They’ve a platform referred to as KlickZie that digitally tags smartphone footage. The thought being it allows users to work together based mostly on the digital tags. They employ blockchain know-how for this.
Their newest release is an app referred to as ARknet 1.0. They’re trying to create the subsequent huge digital actuality recreation — kinda like Pokemon Go. Additionally they plan to set a new Guinness World Report for the most important scavenger hunt on August 25. We’ll see how that pans out for them.
Take a look at the 1-year chart, after which I’ll explain the setup:
TTCM 1-year chart Chart Courtesy: www.stockstotrade.com
Discover the double prime and failure on the TTCM chart. Then there was a 2-month consolidation period that shaped a near-perfect cup and deal with. Finally, there was a breakout over the previous excessive.
Additionally, TTCM has a historical past of multi-day spikes. In April, there were 5 days of upside. Then in Might, the double prime shaped after 3 days of upside. The spike on July 12 was an enormous first inexperienced day with volume.
The catalyst was a press release. It announced the public launch of their ARknet augmented actuality app. Additionally they introduced a revenue era model inside the app. To prime it off, the corporate announced a 500 million reduction in the approved share rely.
In different phrases, this trade had a number of constructive indicators. Even so, that doesn’t explain why it was a near-perfect setup for me. Check it out…
- TTCM was an ideal multi-month breakout.
- It’s an OTC stock — which I like.
- It was trading big volume relative to its history.
- It had a robust catalyst — the stock was popping on the debut of their app.
- It’s a ‘scorching’ know-how — virtual reality is within the news quite a bit just lately.
- The time of day was good for me and my schedule. I like shopping for first inexperienced days close to the top of the day.
- I was capable of lock in income and scale back my danger close to the market close.
- I stored a speculative position over the weekend with the thesis it might gap up on Monday morning.
What would have made TTCM good? Worth. It’s a super-low-priced inventory. I often don’t wish to trade sub-penny shares. I want it was buying and selling round 10 or 20 cents a share to start out. Then I might have held a larger position over the weekend.
Nonetheless, this was one among my greatest trades of the yr. It’s essential so that you can understand that every time this type of sample comes around, I’m ready. The sad thing is that the majority newbies are unprepared. They don’t see it, they usually don’t commerce it…
… if the right play hit them within the head tomorrow they might simply maintain strolling.
That reminds me of a well-known quote:
“Males sometimes stumble over the truth, but most of them decide themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had occurred.” — Winston Churchill
OK, now you’ve seen the setup, and you recognize my thoughts moving into. Now let’s take a look at the commerce. Please research this trade. Much of my success comes from enjoying a waiting recreation. I anticipate the indications to line up earlier than I danger my hard-earned cash.

TTCM chart: 12-15, July; 1-minute candlestick Chart Courtesy: www.stockstotrade.com
Discover my entry level was after the stock had been consolidating all day from its morning spike? Quantity picked up within the power hour from three–four p.m. I purchased roughly 20 minutes earlier than the market closed.
Despite the fact that my exposure was small in greenback terms, I wasn’t snug holding 750,000 shares over the weekend. So, I pruned my place by promoting 250,000 shares into the superior power close to the market close. Not solely can that scale back danger, but in addition probably lock in some income.
Then, when the market opened on Monday there was a MASSIVE hole up. That may happen when the news catalyst spreads over the weekend. It was nice to promote into that. I managed an general achieve of 48.39% on this trade for a $3,375 profit.*

Trading Questions from College students
“When considering quantity versus float, how essential is float rotation? Is it enough to see an enormous improve over average quantity given different indicators or criteria are constructive?”
Before I reply, let me clarify volume versus float. I train college students to commerce shares with high sufficient quantity and volatility that they gained’t get stuck in a trade. There needs to be sufficient shares traded to get into and out of your positions easily.
Second, float rotation is when the complete float gets traded inside the day. For example, if a inventory with a 2 million share float trades 6 million shares, the float has rotated 3 times.
Now you recognize what the question means, here’s my reply…
I don’t like buying and selling overly liquid shares. For example, if a inventory trades 20, 30, 50, or even 100 million shares a day it’s often an excessive amount of for me. That’s because it results in choppy shares and I get scared out of the commerce and reduce my losses — or income.
Thoughts you, within the TTCM trade I defined above, the stock traded 113.02 million shares on July 12. It additionally has a float of 2.55 billion shares — which is NOT low float. It provides you a clue as to why it’s such a low-priced stock. So, this isn’t an ideal science. Typically certain indicators outweigh others.
Back to quantity versus float…
For instance, say I’m in a inventory buying and selling at $2 or $three a share. I might minimize my losses at 10 or 15 cents a share. That huge a drop can be a pink flag for me. Thing is, that’s just part of the choppiness of some of these big liquid shares.
On the similar time, if a stock rotates its float 2, three, or four occasions, it typically keeps going. Why? As a result of there’s not enough supply to satisfy the large demand. That’s why you see lots of these 50%, 100%, and even 200% spikers lately. Especially with all these shorts getting squeezed.
“At what point in a spike do you contemplate a stock overextended? Is it based mostly on proportion improve, worth history, or one thing else?”
All of the above. For instance, let’s return to TTCM — but we’ll use a unique commerce. (I traded TTCM 3 times throughout its run.)
On July 18, I anticipated a day breakout and purchased at $zero.0199. I bought roughly an hour later at $zero.0217. It ran all the best way to $zero.0222 — 12% above the earlier excessive of $0.0197 on July 15.
It’s robust for me to chase a inventory that’s up over 10% or 15%. If the breakout fails and it comes back to help, that may be a 10% loss, which is too much for me. So for me, I don’t like chasing breakouts. Anything like 10%, 15%, or 20% above the breakout degree is chasing. I want to buy right at the breakout and sell into power.
Also, I’m not snug trading three, 4, and 5 days right into a run-up.
Check out the TTCM chart that exhibits the place I purchased and bought on July 18:
TTCM chart: July 12–22, afternoon breakout on July 18 Chart Courtesy: www.stockstotrade.com
The pink strains show the breakout degree of $0.0197 and the high-of-day (HOD) on July 18, which was $0.0222. On this specific trade, I managed to anticipate the breakout. Typically I don’t even anticipate the breakout as a result of it moves so quick as soon as it occurs.
A couple of things to note about this commerce in relation to the question:
- I took a smaller place measurement than my July 12 commerce. That’s because it was day 5 of the run.
- The inventory was up 111% from my preliminary buy on July 12. So, I purchased the breakout however I changed the best way I traded based mostly on my Sykes Sliding Scale indicators. I was more conservative and glad to take a a lot smaller 9.05% achieve.
Here’s one ultimate thing to think about when a inventory is spiking…
If a stock breaks out, say 20%, and comes back to the breakout point and holds…
… it is perhaps a very good dip-buy.
Theoretically, the breakout can be confirmed. Then you definitely’d have 20% of upside with the breakout level turning into help. So this will have an effect on whether you contemplate the inventory overextended.
