My 2014 and 2013 Vegas Presentation Slides

Let me start by thanking everyone who made it out to Vegas for the stock conferences, both this year and last. I can't tell you all how great it is to meet people face to face, and how energized I feel when I leave Vegas every year after meeting so many passionate traders! It really makes me feel fortunate to be a part of such a great trading community, and I hope you all took a lot away from the experience.

I had a few people asking if I could post my presentation from this year, so here it is! Just follow the link and you can see all of my slides. I'm also going to put up a link for my 2013 presentation, as I feel there's a ton of great content in there to learn from as well. I hope you guys enjoy, and thanks again for your dedication and for all of the positive feedback I've received!

  4. Great post again.
    Would you put something like $UNIS (10/06/2014) also in your sheet tracking "Bad Day 1s?"
    Same question for $RVLT (10/06/2014).

    Thanks!

  5. Yep UNIS would have made the cut! RVLT barelyyyy missed, I like the close to be at or below the opening price on day 1

    1. Stockstotrade, Interactive Brokers' scanner, or Equityfeed are my 3 top choices. Other options that are free include thinkorswim or finviz.com but are definitely missing some features these others have

  7. Tim, thank you for your awesome presentation at the conference. I had a great time and had nice little chat with you on the excel and setup. I have not seen many people share their trade secrets. Thank you for teaching us and making us believe in becoming a leader and not a follower.

    Can you please share that excel, few more setup and the screener that use as well? Thanks a ton!!!

  9. Your explanation of your two strategies, one for OTC and the NASD are the first time anybody explains the elements on how to go about setting up a strategy. Also the information on Promoters posting on Sunday nights gives me something to look for.
    Explaining what you look for using the same elements found in screeners makes it easy to set up screeners.
    Thank you, good luck and looking forward to meeting you.

  11. Tim, Any chance you are coming out with an option to teach a few like minded students?

  12. You give Sykes to much credit for your success.
    I been watching his trades for a long time.
    You're much better than him already.

  13. Tim, I really appreciate your excel strategy, it is refined and something traders can actually utilize/work with. I'm not great at some of the strategy the gurus promote, however your approach seems like something I build on being a Finance guy. I look forward to the excel posts you plan on in the future. Thanks again.

  14. to make the ugly day one list, does the chart have to have an "ugly candle" or can it just meet the criteria "up 15%, +3000 trades, -10 Price". Thank you. Also what is an ugly candle look like? Thx Tim.

    1. Slide #39 has a couple examples, basically it's if the stock is up 15%+ but closed at or below its opening price

  15. Thx, How do you run your filters so your data is finite from open to close. My EquityFeed is always changing...ie. my filter will have stocks come on and come off list due to after hours activity? Thx.

    1. I just go by closing price, which I just look at a chart to determine. Because you're right, it does change on equityfeed with after hours prints

    2. -What exactly is a gap up and do you only document it in the mornings?
      Thank you.
      Also, where can I learn more about this" stat approach" to trading?

    3. Hey Tim


      Been trying your stat Ugly Day-1 setups. I get similar data on excel, however executing the trade is tough. in PreMkt Bid/Ask spreads are wide and risky making and it tough to enter around PCL where you possibly could get a 5% or more low from PCL. And once the market opens its at a price that results in a approx 53% probability of reaching a 5% or more low. How do you execute a trade like this? Thanks, I hope that all made sense...

    4. I don't enter/exit premarket for that very reason. Truth be told I haven't been trading these much lately - all I can say is keep collecting data and see what you can figure out!

  16. Tim, are you playing small caps only on Nasdaq? No small cap AMEX or NYSE? If so, why? Difference in trading these different types of exchanges?

    Also, do you have any rules for shorting after the first up day? Past strategy has been wait for a few green days, at least 2,, but lately many small cap gains are not making it past day 2. Even on great day one candles.

  20. Hi Tim, sorry I'm still learning the jargon. Could you please confirm what shorting momentum runners (from 2104 presentation) is and difference between shorting pump and dumps? Is it just that momentum runners are not working off promotions?

    1. pumps tend to crash much faster than momentum runners (except for the most extreme of them) - nasdaqs overall are just more choppy and take longer to fade back down

  21. I am using MarketXLS. It works great for me.
