EOM Garden II Prep:  Step 4   4.6.17

The goal of a successful trader is to make the best trades. Money is secondary.                                                                          Alexander Elder

It takes patience to make the best trades.  To maximize the long-term value of each Garden Growing Candidate, have patience with your entry points.   This leads to exponential price appreciation and “Share Growing” results.  DOE                
Today we return to the All-Star A list candidates in our Garden Growing application exercise.

Step 4

Allocate amounts/prices/shares of CLM from the All-Star A list (BA 1) on the worksheet. In this part of the training, I analyze each candidate, extrapolate the number of shares purchased with an estimated target price then determine alert conditions.

Key Points on CLM

1.    Decreasing dividend amount but still has a 15.85% spread

2.    The previous pullbacks were 43%, 31%, and 22%

3.    The previous rallies were 45%, 68% and currently 29%

4.    Since my Garden Growing goal is share appreciation for the next seven years, I want to buy after a price drop then only with a weekly SS Buy Signal, confirmed with a daily SS Buy Signal

5.   I plan to buy incrementally and budget $500 for each purchase

Action Points….
1.   Price closes under the 6 SMA 

2.   CMF crosses under zero

3.   MACD Histogram crosses back under zero-it is there now

4.   RSI closes under 30

5.   Slow Stochastics crosses under 20

I highlighted (purple areas) the indicator levels when CLM made previous runs. The institutions will have alerts set for a duplicate scenario.  I plan to do the same. 

When we receive a Simple Simon Buy Signal, then go to the daily chart and confirm another SS Buy Signal before buying.

Per my DOE Sample worksheet, since no one knows the exact price when the Simple Simon Buy Signal hits, I extrapolated an (R1) targeted $15.00 entry price.

This would give us 33 shares. Any unused funds are swept into the Round Two (R2) allocation for future opportunities.

For those wanting to be all in simply allocate all 1K.

When my analysis is complete, I plan to compile all steps into a single PDF document, available exclusively to EOM Members.

The rest of this week, we will continue with the All-Star A candidates for our next Garden.

Enjoy your day,
