Trade Exchange Founder Series – Tim Fortier

Trade Exchange Founder Series - Alpha Chartist Tim Fortier

Tim Fortier of Alpha Chartist talks about his experience and evolving approach to identifying ideas. He began his career finding “cup and handle” formations on printed stock charts received in the mail. The tools have evolved and Tim has added more to his arsenal, but this discipline remains. Tim focuses on fundamentals like risk management, the power of compounding and removing emotion from trading. Mike and Tim discuss a couple of example trades – the first being HEXO – a company in a strong sector with a strong earnings, revenue and EDITDA profile. They also discuss Sorrento Therapeutics, which emerged from two of Tim’s screens: a strong-performing sectors and high options volume.

Top Trades – Mid February

Top Trade Update - mid-February

Our experts continue to deliver verified trading profits on the Trade Exchange. Since our last Top Trades email 3 weeks ago, our experts have booked gains of over 90% gains on 10 trades, over 40% gains on 32 trades and over 20% gains on 81 trades. See the specifics of every one of these trades here – you can receive ideas in real time with specific entry/exit prices and updates – and execute all of them in your linked brokerage account – all through the Trade Exchange app.

In case you missed our last update, our top 20 experts have delivered aggregate returns in excess of 70% across every idea delivered on the Trade Exchange. This includes every expert featured below. Click here for our Top 20 and follow this blog link to see details on every trade from our top 10 experts. Bob Knight, Terry Donahue and Barry Steinman have each delivered VERIFIED returns exceeding 100%.

CLVR (+ warrants): +277% (warrants – 2 wks) / 106% (5 wks) – Cara Biotech, Metals & Top Picks

Bill Cara delivered this idea two ways – through a higher risk/reward warrant trade and also with the underlying stock. “This is a vertically integrated, global cannabis company with a solid board and management team, with former US Senator Tom Daschle as a special advisor. They offer a sustainable, high-efficiency large-scale cultivation and extraction of cannabinoids and produce pharmaceutical and consumer brands in the wellness, lifestyle and beauty segments.”

TIGR: +262% in 7 weeks – Barry Steinman Opportunities in Emerging Growth Stocks

A big winner in online brokerage in China. Barry Steinman: “China’s economy is booming post-pandemic and their middle class only now being created. The ‘mobile first’ strategy that has been a smashing success for American retail investors using platforms such as Robinhood is now being played out in China. The platform also enables investors to trade on multiple exchanges around the world.”

TRVG: +169% in 1 week – RajCAP

RajCAP identifies an opportunity in Europe. “The trading idea was based on the Elliott wave trading technique and selected for a short term trend reversal trade with a zigzag pattern. The risk/reward ratio was 5.43, which is quite good for short term swing set up for 1-2 week trade duration. I recommend a trend reversal set up done in pull back only when it starts outperforming the index and after a proven confirmatory wave pattern.”

BB: +163% in 2 weeks – viditrade

A stock caught up in the r/wallstreetbets turmoil, but one with true potential. Rod David of viditrade: “We all know BlackBerry as the handheld device/phone that got buried by flip phones, iPhones and Androids. But realizing its brand is tied to security, they’ve focused on that. And AMZN just partnered with BB, which could go a lot of ways, but generally in one likely direction.”

OPTT: +133% in 10 days – Tom’s Stock Picks

OPTT converts ocean wave energy into electricity. Tom Waller of TC Investments: “This is an innovative company to say the least. They have ‘Powerbuoys’ that they offer to customers like the US Navy. I was invested in this company in July and its price hit $4.70+ (6x) in the last 3 months. It’s set to run higher with the inauguration.”

CCIV: +109% in 3 weeks – Bull & Bear Trading

SPACs remain hot. Someone who followed every one of Bull & Bear Trading’s ideas would have doubled their money over the past 8 months. Terry Donahue from Bull & Bear: “Churchill Capital may bring Lucid Motors public. This stock seems to be at the right place at the right time.”

SMMT: +92% in 8 weeks – Turbo Trading Swing Trade Membership

Bob Knight, our top stock picker since Trade Exchange’s inception continues to pick winners, with 22 of the top 80 trades over the past three weeks. “Sometimes, it is not always about trading the stocks in vogue. We also find stocks with less volatility but that still give huge gains. Lots of people would like to double their money in less than 2 months.”

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:

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.
