Simple Simon Scans 2.7.17

Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.          Earl Nightingale

I do not believe in luck. Luck is hard work, turned inside out.                     DOE

Today I highlight trading candidates from my Simple Simon Plus Scans. The purpose; discover HPTs-higher (probability, profitability) trades, some before the SS signals hit.

Simple Simon Long Candidates 


Key Points…
1. The previous run was almost 600%
2. The red slotted line indicates the day CNBX hit my scan
3.  A SS Buy Signal hit yesterday

Simple Simon Short Candidates


Key Points…
1.  Previous drop percentages are identified
2.  A Simple Simon Sell signal hit last week
3.  If AOI drops under the next Support ($14.35) look for a test of the next
Support (13.35).

Action Plan…

Study each candidate then transfer your favorites to a SS Long and SS Short watch list.   Determine your trade conditions and set alerts at your broker or 

For example, if a trading candidate goes through a hard support/resistance level or jumps in volume by X%, then have an alert to give a heads-up when this happens. 

When your buy or short signals hit, you know what to do. No trading unless protective stops are in place.

Here is the link to
setting alerts at  Online brokers may have a trademarked name: for instance, “Trade Triggers” at TD Ameritrade.  For setting alerts at your broker, contact them and have them walk through the process.

Enjoy your evening,
