I only found out about it a couple weeks ago when I bought a certain stock late day as it took out the morning spike high and sold it for a nice gain. That same play I was surprised to hear that Mark Croock and one or two other students in the chat room had bought it like an hour before I did and about 10-20% cheaper than I did. I am not tremendously consistent with it yet, but I'm learning through mistakes how to better trade this pattern. According to my studies, you look for a stock that spik

According to my studies, you look for a stock that spikes big out of the open, 20+% on the day, and holds most of those gains until 1:30-3:00PM, preferably above VWAP. The stock will dip from the spike high as people take profits, but you buy a small position as the stock supports a certain level a few times and starts to turn to the upside.

Nice! I’ve only been doing this for about 4 months so getting the hang of it. Pretty much how you described it and how Bohen describes it. Spikes 20% in the morning, holds VWAP all day then spikes or breaks nhod around 2-3 and strong into close

Hi Axl, from talking to you in the chat room these last few weeks, I understand that you are focusing on First Green Day plays, specifically afternoon short squeezes. I am trying to master that set up too. I have attached an intraday chart, this is MARA from March 12, 2018. I have certain ideas about this chart, and would like to know your opinion. Is this your ideal intraday chart on a FGD, and which candle would you buy?

I would buy it when it makes a nhod at 2.1 at around 13:45. it perfectly comes back and resistance get support and off it goes

@axlk Interesting, I know you like to buy later in the day for more consolidation and more shorts to collect. If I were looking at this chart every minute of the day, I would have been very interested to buy the first huge green candle at around 13:15, small size, wide risk, and maybe add at HOD break.

This one looks like an ABCD pattern. I'm focused on o/n plays and in most cases it's a first green day too which I mostly buy in the last 90min but sometimes there are plays you can go in earlier - most of the time near midday

So after a year in the challenge, I have drawn my account down to $1,150 USD. I took several months off to tend to my real estate business. I have started learning in earnest after I attended the Tim Sykes Trader Conference that ended October 1st. Determined to start growing this account.

First trades in of the challenge. I started on Nov. 23, 2017, with an account size of $10,000 CAD, or $7,864.11 USD after currency conversion. I'm excited to learn this material and to make some real moves!
