Bob Knight –

Bob Knight’s Swing Trade Membership is based on technical analysis. He has been in the markets for over 30 years with experience through bull and five bear markets, including the coming and going of many hot sectors. Bob is well-versed in both long and short opportunities, with no specific preference other than a focusing on the underlying market trend. Most of the ideas in Swing Membership have holding periods between 2 weeks and 2 months. Bob’s top winners include:

  • FuelCell Energy (FCEL): +144% in 8 days – “Clean energy play as the new administration is pro-green. So we should see this sector heat up.”
  • BioNano Genomics (BNGO): +136% in 4 days – “Technology recently accredited in the US. Huge room to run.”

Note that Bob generates ideas that lose money, but in these cases, as always, you receive a credit for a free idea whenever an expert closes an idea at a loss.

Terry Donahue – 

Bull & Bear Trading

Terry Donahue is the principal researcher and author of Bull & Bear Trading, which publishes Trader’s Idea Flow on Seeking Alpha’s marketplace. His work is published in venues including Seeking Alpha, CNBC and Dow Newswire. He delivers actionable ideas focused on shorter-term trades across sectors like technology, energy, automotive, financial, real estate, pharmaceuticals and biotech.

As an early adopter of new technology, Terry appreciates Trade Exchange’s ability to deliver his ideas to his followers in real time. His affinity for emerging technology is evident in his top performing ideas, which include (quotes were provided when the idea was delivered to his followers):

  • Marathon (MARA) +168+ in 37 days – “CashApp and PayPal are consuming over 70% of the daily new supply of Bitcoin. Crypto is likely to break out above all time high and run higher.”
  • Churchill Capital (CCIV) +109% in 20 days – “May bring Lucid Motors public via theSPAC process. This stock seems to be at the right place at the right time.”
  • Riot Blockchain (RIOT) +105% in 28 days – “This is a play on the BTC trade.”

67% of Terry’s ideas are winners, so they have a high degree of risk and are suitable for investors who can sustain the loss of capital.

Barry Steinman –

Opportunities in Emerging Growth Stocks

Barry Steinman’s Opportunities in Emerging Growth Stocks has provided fewer ideas, but his overall performance has been no less impressive. Barry has vast experience managing risk for massive long and short investment portfolios across multiple asset classes. His approach incorporates current events, macroeconomic trends and technical analysis to form clear and logical opinions on the markets. He prides himself as a voice of reason during turbulent times.

Barry’s top winners include:

  • UP Fintech Holding (TIGR): +262% in 48 days – “China economy booming post pandemic.”
  • Pioneer Power Solutions (PPSI): +95% in 46 days – “This 25 year old company is in the right place at the right time, supplying infrastructure to the electric vehicle sector.”
  • SG Blocks (SGBX): +89% in 53 days – “This microcap is positioned to grow rapidly with the rollout of Covid testing and vaccine locations.”

91% of Barry’s ideas have been closed as winners. His ideas aim to capitalize on changing global paradigms as we emerge from Covid-19 and usher in a new administration.

2We are using the modified Dietz money weighted performance calculation, which accounts for both length of holding period and size of investment. Performance is measured for every idea entered by each expert through closing of each idea, through Friday, February 5. A follower’s actual performance may vary due to timing, but each follower is provided entry and order prices that are achievable should they act when alerted. The follower has the option to ignore the experts’ recommendations at any time and is always responsible for making their own buy and sell decisions.

GameStop – What to Do as a Rational Self-Directed Investor?

GameStop - What to Do as a Rational Self- Directed Investor?

Here at the Trade Exchange, last week’s events confirmed both our mission to support self-directed investors and the way we are doing it. We all know self-directed investing is here to stay. Major online brokerages – Robinhood as well as TD Ameritrade, E*Trade, Schwab and Interactive Brokers have been adding hundreds of thousands of accounts, month after month.

All self-directed investors are looking for ideas. As of this morning, the subreddit r/wallstreetbets is up to 8 million members! But within such a community, who should you follow? What’s their track record? When they recommend “the next hot company,” at what price should you buy? When should you get out?

Trade Exchange demystifies all of this. We are harnessing technology to connect self-directed investors with expert stock pickers. Download our app in the App Store or Google Play below:

What can you do with the Trade Exchange that you cannot elsewhere?

  • Follow a wide range of investment experts: we have sector experts, technical, fundamental and macroeconomic analysts, swing traders, contrarians and more. Follow professionals with unique domain expertise or choose others that share your investment philosophy. Build your own all-star team!
  • Verify performance: every one of our experts’ trades – what they bought, the entry and exit prices, and how much – are tracked in our systems as they happen. See everything they’ve recommended in the past – winners and losers! No detail is left out.
  • Real-time notification: when an expert generates an idea, you receive a text notification on your phone immediately. You are notified the moment an expert adjusts a price target, so you can follow their recommendation. In this market, speed matters.
  • Execute trades immediately: once you unveil the idea, you can execute the trade in your linked brokerage account without leaving our app. The order ticket is prefilled with the ticker and recommended limit order price. Just specify the number of shares to enter the trade and receive the alerts on exactly when to exit.

Top Trades – Late January

Top Trades Update - Late January

Excellent results continue for our professional stock pickers in the second half of January. We’re excited to feature two new experts in this edition of Top Trades – Mike Levin and Rajendra Parmar! While we are featuring specific stock picks in these updates, these are not just one-off winners. Stay tuned for another update in the coming days – we will feature our top overall performers across ALL of their 2020 picks. You will be impressed by their results! Follow Tom Waller, Bob Knight, Mike Levin and Rajendra Parmar and others on the Trade Exchange App. Receive the specifics of their stock picks in real time – what to buy, at what price, how much, when to sell and at what price – all on your mobile phone.

ACTCW: +147% in 2 weeks – TC Investments

A big winner in a SPAC warrant. “I did a partial research report on my Twitter, please check the pinned tweet for more information (@TC_Investments). Some things not included there: This is a NEW stock – listed November 23rd. I love buying and holding SPAC’s near $10. I am targeting the warrants for this and see a lot of upside and little downside. It should be super easy for them to find a company because their focus is clean energy. One of the board members is the co-founder of Clean Energy for Biden. Holding for a few weeks for them to find a target. I prefer to buy the warrants for the potential percentage returns they can generate.”

TLRY: +123% in 6 weeks – Turbo Trading

One of our top stock pickers uncovers another big winner in an entirely different sector! Bob Knight, Turbo Trading: “With the new administration now confirmed, the Feds are now more likely to legalize pot.  As such, there is keen speculation that the sector will show strong growth over the next 2 years. TLRY is one of the main players and is lagging. Look for it to catch up with the rest of the sector, especially compared to CGC.”

CYCN: +45% in 2 months – We Trade Setups

Finding a great trading pattern with a high potential, early-stage company. Mike Levin, We Trade Setups: “Cyclerion Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharm company that engages in the development and commercialization of various treatments for serious and orphan diseases. Its product candidates include Olinciguat, an orally administered drug that is in Phase II studies for the treatment of sickle cell disease. I like CYCN not only for this drug, but because its trading pattern fits my specialty – catching breakouts from technical patterns resulting in outsized short-term gains.”

X (US Steel): +36% in 3 weeks – RajCAP

We love featuring Top Trades with “old school” names. Rajendra Parmar, RajCAP: “The trading idea was based on Elliott Wave trading technique, according to which it is within the impulse cycle and traded for 5th wave up of the sequence. The trade entry was supported by momentum indicators, volume and market outperformance and having good risk/reward set up. The risk/reward ratio was 3.4, which is considered to be good for short-term swing setups. The metal sector was performing well against the SPX. That’s the reason X was a great pick within that trading window.”

Individuals who follow experts featured on the Trade Exchange assume all risks and take full responsibility for unveiling and following ideas, whether they execute trades in their linked brokerage account through the Trade Exchange app or in their brokerage accounts that are not linked via the Trade Exchange app. Trade Exchange strongly encourages everyone to review all the trades posted by a partner, as many lose money. All results –  including entry and exit prices – are available for review.

Bionano-Logo_360x360

BNGO: +135% in 2 days – Turbo Trading

Bob Knight and Turbo Trading have been red hot to start the year. This is just one of many profitable trades he has identified. “Analysts call BNGO’s technology game-changing, as the stock gaps up from $0.50.  It paused at the end of the year, allowing for a good entry price.  Sold into the continuing momentum at the beginning of the year.”

FCEL: +63% in 3 weeks – MyHappyTrading

This is MyHappyTrading’s first time on Trade Exchange’s Top Trades, but it won’t be the last. On December 18, Andy Wang shared the FCEL idea with the simple comment – “Breaking Out.” It did so indeed, and profits were booked on January 8. Andy Wang: “MyHappyTrading seeks to find undervalued or overlooked stocks that will benefit from the electric car/battery market boom. Lots of money is going into this sector right now. FCEL has a long way to go- the weekly/monthly charts indicate it’s all just getting started.”

NOVSW: +31% in 1.5 weeks – TC Investments

Tom Waller and TC Investments are also being featured here for the first time. “I focused on the underlying warrants that traded above $5.10 recently but went below $5. NOVS will be huge for the future, but I just focused on the chart for this trade. I anticipated an easy swing to $8+ once the merger run-up starts to happen. I loved this setup, with a merger date announcement looming. I chose to exit NOVSW early to consolidate my cash for a bigger, better swing opportunity.”

ARCT: +19% in 6 days – Rick’s Picks Bold

This type of systematic play is core to more predictable, profitable trading. Rick Ackerman, Rick’s Picks: “Henceforth, traders can look forward to more plays in bio/pharma upstarts because their oft-violent swings are ideally suited to the ‘mechanical’ set-ups that Rick’s Picks Bold uses as a workhorse. As the Trade Exchange platform continues to expand its execution capabilities, giving us more flexibility, we will also be able to offer you scale-outs (i.e., partial profit-taking), shorting, option spreads and buy/sell-stop entries that leverage trading’s ‘discomfort zone’.”

Top Trade Update - Late December

Our experts have booked many more top trades over the past few weeks. Here are a few more examples, by different experts and across a range of industries. You can follow each of them, as well as others, all here on the Trade Exchange! Every trade from each of our partners is tracked and verifiable using our patented analytics.

To each of you – early adopters of the Trade Exchange app and stock experts already publishing ideas on the Trade Exchange – THANK YOU! And have a wonderful, restful holiday season and a safe and prosperous 2021!

MARA: +68% in 2.5 weeks – Turbo Trading

Bob Knight of Turbo Trading is a master of finding buying opportunities in hot sectors. “MARA is in a strong rising crypto sector. Cryptocurrencies are on everyone’s lips, as the hype has started. Longer term, it may be vulnerable to a pullback. But when Bitcoin runs, look for MARA to ride along.”

HBM: +66% in 3 months – Cara Biotech & Metals

Bill Cara has been trading mining stocks for over 50 years, spending hundreds of hours with mining executives in visiting dozens of mines in person. He has followed Hudbay (HBM) for decades, is intimately familiar with the company’s financials and knows that the executive team consists of hardworking, conservative businesspeople. As a Canadian mining company operating primarily in Tier 1 jurisdictions, Bill was confident HBM presented an early opportunity for him to pursue cyclical price increases in the mining sector. Having bought in September at $4.34, Bill chose to book profits recently. He’s keeping his eyes open for opportunities to re-enter trades in HBM and other mining names, so stay tuned!

APPS: +40% in 2.5 weeks – Alpha Insights

Digital Turbine (APPS) hit a new all-time high in November and showed up in Jeffrey Huge’s screens. One of Jeffrey’s mentors used to say – “in price, there is knowledge” – informed buyers are acting on underlying business fundamentals to drive prices upward. APPS’s new all-time and monthly closing highs enabled Jeffrey to anticipate a measured price increase. He entered the trade to capitalize on that initial upside potential. Once APPS’s price entered the target zone in less than 3 weeks, he tightened his stop-loss provision and closed the position.

LMND: +39% in 5 days – LaDuc Trading

LaDuc Trading’s ‘Dolphin Plays’ and ‘Whale of a Trend’ strategies identify sustainable medium to long-term trends using institutional sponsorship, price behavior, market option structure and pattern recognition to support pre-determined entry and exit points. Samantha LaDuc noticed that Softbank was buying LMND, even when they were cutting exposure in names like AMZN, GOOG, TSLA. She then stalked for a low-risk entry, which emerged on December 2 when LMND tagged two levels of support near $62 (trendline and 100 day moving average) but closed strong. She was able to been a 39% profit just 5 days later! She looks forward to helping her followers capitalize on similar opportunities when the next “fat pitches” appear.

Trade Exchange Partner Series – Bill Cara

Bill Cara has been one of Trade Exchange’s top stock pickers over the past few months, with big winners in both the biotech and metals & mining sectors. Check out Episode 6 of the Trade Exchange Partner Series with Layah Heilpern to learn more about his approach!

Trade Exchange Partner Series – Rick’s Picks

Top Trades Update – December

Top Trade Update - mid-December

There have been a number of great trades on the Trade Exchange platform recently. Thanks to our expert partners sharing their trading ideas and congratulations to everyone who followed these trades! The specifics – what to buy, at what price, how much, when to get out – of every idea are tracked and verifiable using our patented analytics. Reading through these, you will realize that experts on Trade Exchange have vastly different approaches and experience bases. It is only on the Trade Exchange that you can follow all of them and benefit from their wealth of knowledge. Here are just a few top trades:

ALTM: +117% in 2 weeks – Bull & Bear Trading

It’s relatively easy to spot activity, but experience and research are critical to determine the appropriate action. Terry Donahue, Bull & Bear: “Full time traders like me spend hours daily on the lookout for trading opportunities. In one of my trade room subscriptions, several traders were having difficulty with an ALTM short sale – it had run from $10 to $17. The less-experienced traders had not done their due diligence and were just rolling the dice on shorting stocks that were up a lot that day. My research indicated that with a $6 cash dividend, ALTM was actually still a long trade with considerable profit potential! It rocketed from $18 to $30 within 4 hours, and within two weeks I took profits at $38.70.”

CVAC: +109% in 2 months – Bill Cara Biotech & Metals

Successful investing requires both homework to identify high-quality companies and waiting for the market to present opportunities. Bill Cara: “CureVac was the first company the US government approached to make a COVID-19 vaccine, offering $1 billion before any trials. But Germany declared the company a national security interest and gave them $300 million to start clinical trials. Rather than a chemical modification of RNA, CureVac’s non-chemically modified mRNA method is designed to address more variations of coronavirus, including the most prevalent D614G mutation of SARS-CoV-2. The company’s RNA Printer™ could produce several grams of LNP-formulated mRNA (enough to produce more than 100,000 doses), within just a few weeks at various sites like hospital pharmacies, vastly improving logistics.”

VERI: +79% in 3 days – Turbo Trading

In times of market instability companies demonstrating price resilience in growing sectors can offer profit potential. Veritone is a leading provider of machine learning tools that transform audio, video and other data sources into actionable intelligence. Bob Knight, Turbo Trading: “The stock is at break out level with a strong rising trend.  The AI technology sector is strong and the next leg of the bull market is underway.  Stocks like VERI that stay strong in market pullbacks can make impressive moves.

KODK: +67% in 3 days – Rick’s Picks

Experienced traders are on the lookout for proven patterns that can emerge, even with long-established names. Rick Ackerman of Rick’s Picks has developed and mastered what he calls the Hidden Pivot method, a visual approach to identifying ‘jiggles and jaggles’ in stock movements. He identified this pattern on December 3, when he wrote: “Eastman Kodak’s powerful thrust through $7.66 all but assures that the target at $8.33 will be reached. A potential likely pullback first to $7.25, would trigger an opportune Rick’s Pick: a ‘mechanical’ buy.”
