New Trade – SLW

Posted by mounddweller on April 27, 2012

Fellow Traders,

Believe it or not I placed another new trade today.  Hard to believe isn’t it.  My trading had slowed way down.  Primarily for two reasons, (1) I didn’t trust the market, and (2) everything I wanted to trade had run up in price beyond what I was willing to own it at.

So, what changed?  Well, to be honest, nothing really.  I still don’t trust this market and there just isn’t much that I like at these prices.  However, I finally said I have to do something, I can’t keep all of my money in cash, not if I want to reach my retirement goals.  So, I decided to give Ron Groenke’s new trading system a try.  As I mentioned in my post yesterday, Ron has had great success with his new “Show the Trade” algorithms.  Having used Ron’s VISIONS software for the past several years, and having met him personally, I trust that he knows what he is doing.

So, I’m ‘sticking my big toe in the water’ so to speak and seeing if I can replicate Ron’s results in my own trading.  Yesterday, was my first “Show the Trade” trade in Chevron (CVX).  Today, it was Silver Wheaton (SLW) that flashed a buy signal so since I’d successfully traded it before and was comfortable owning it at these prices I decided to give it a go.

Here are the trades I executed.

(1) Bought 200 shares SLW at $30.07

(2) STO 2 MAY $29 puts at $0.64

Here is the one year price chart for SLW.  As you can see it has strong support in the $28-$29 range.

Well, there you are, two trades in two days.  I must be losing my mind (ha ha).  Time will tell if I can replicate Ron’s success.  Have a great weekend.

Regards,

Troy
