Technical Setups to watch next week and my Trading rules

 Dearest readers, 

I continue to receive many emails from  people asking me which books or sites I would recommend to learn about trading. To be transparent and direct, i can't find any book that could help you in this environment of uncertainty. In reality, there is no such thing as a perfect trading model, simply because the market is so dynamic and unpredictable in nowadays. However, I can share with you my trading rules.

First the charts to watch next week, then the rules.

Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corp (NASDAQ:ADMP) finally broke the upper line of the ascending triangle pattern last week on strong volume accumulation. This is a good sign for a continuation of the trend. Overall, it looks bullish. A measured upside technical target after the break of the ascending triangle formation points to around 1.13, but when you combine the trend/momentum with the very strong bullish volume action on the daily chart, a test of the highs of 1.51 should be taking in consideration in the coming sessions. From a technical standpoint, all three major technical indicators are in bullish zones. Upward momentum on MACD looks strong and the RSI is also showing strong upward momentum. Let's keep an eye on it.

Workhorse Group Inc (NASDAQ:WKHS) had a big surge in price and volume in September when stock price doubled in just 3 weeks. The stock has consolidated over the last couple of sessions and yesterday it broke the downtrend line to the upside on volume, so for aggressive traders like me, this can be a buy already. The stock hit a high of $27.11 on Friday, which is resistance for the follow through move. Charts on all time frames are bullish. You should watch this stock closely next week.

Neovasc Inc (NASDAQ:NVCN) could be in the early stages of a technical breakout. Daily momentum indicators are showing bullish signals supported by rising MACD and RSI on the charts. On October 27 the FDA will hold a circulatory system devices panel meeting to review the premarket approval application for NVCN’s Reducer device. That catalyst should push the stock prices up even higher, which could give Neovasc stock the fuel to keep rallying.

Electrameccanica Vehicles Corp (NASDAQ: SOLO) Daily technical chart is showing signs of a possible turn around. In terms of technical indicators, the RSI is starting to rise in the oversold zone while the MACD is crossing above its signal line. Plus, the rising 200-day exponential moving average has held the stock higher since the beginning of September and offers strong downside support. The trend is expected to begin the upwards movements. If the stock can break through $2.7 resistance next week, we should see a strong upside move. SOLO will move very quickly, so watch the stock closely.

Allied Esports Entertainment Inc (NASDAQ:AESE) dropped from over $2.80 a share to $1.2's in a few weeks time. It seems to have found a strong support while money flowing is very positive and rising (smart money). Daily technical indicators are beginning to turn bullish. Let’s see whether the stock can gather enough momentum to break through $1.40 next week. Great bottom play. I took a big position for a bounce.

Cancer Genetics Inc (NASDAQ:CGIX) I remain firmly behind this stock. I think this stock is worth accumulating in anticipation of a big move at some point. A break through this 4.75 area could accelerate it higher.

Genius Brands International Inc (NASDAQ:GNUS) is building a nice base for take off. The area comprehended between $1.45 and $1.5 represents a strong resistance for shares. A close above this key resistance area would have positive implications and could drive the stock much higher. The RSI is gaining momentum and MACD is still showing a positive divergence. Keep the stock on your radar.

TOP Ships (NASDAQ:TOPS) is another penny stock I am watching closely. If it clears resistance at $1.30, the move may be powerful. Let's keep an eye on it as I think momentum will pick up.

I have Professional Diversity Network, Inc. (NASDAQ:IPDN) on my watchlist again. It may be ready to break out of this bottom setup formation. Potential swing long above 1.16 Low float stocks remains very HOT.

Potbelly Sandwich Works (NASDAQ:PBPB) broke out in a big way Friday on decent volume. I think we will see a nice follow through next week. A break of $4.3 with force might give room to 4.63 then 5/5.05 area. MACD triggered a new "Buy Signal" for the first time in weeks.

ReneSola Ltd. (NYSE:SOL) broke out to new highs on high volume. The uptrend remains intact and signals further bullishness on this stock. Daily technical indicators are bullish. Buyable on any pullback to pivot.

Based on my experience over the years, here are some basic trading rules that should be taken always in consideration for trading in order to become a successful trader in the stock market.

1 - The trend is your friend, so never go against the trend.
2 - Keep your losses small. Golden rule: Cut losses short. Let profits run.
3 - Use stops. The stop loss should be placed a few cents below the supports and not at the same level (i don't use SLs for low float or penny stocks).
4 - Learn the basics of fundamentals, charts and technical indicators.
5 - The good trader is one who makes consistent gains, so don’t be a greedy trader, appreciate the small and the big gains.
6 - Do not fear the market. Be always confident in your trade decisions.
7 - Never buy what you do not want, because you think it is cheap.
8 - Always be conscious that the loss may arise and you should be prepared for that to happen. Open mind.
9 - For large positions, you must have total control of the market never losing sight
10 -Volume is a leading indicator, so play the breakouts using the volume as support of your decision.
11 - Chart breaks without volume could be a trap and the probabilities of succeeding are low
12 - Do not be hasty to buy or sell a stock, every day there are new opportunities to make money. Being patient is the key to the success of any trader.
13 - Only believe fundamentals as long as the technical signals follow.
14 - Trading very speculative stocks is a frequent mistake.
15 - Do not trade positions too large relative to your available capital.
16 - Do not invest all your money in one company. Your portfolio must be diversified.
17 - The Greed to pick tops or bottoms is a usual error. Wait for the perfect and confirmed signal.
18 - Do not make trading decisions based on a story you saw in the morning paper. The market many times has already discounted the information.
19 - Review your missteps to improve your skills

NOTE: With patience and discipline, you can take much more from the stock market than you ever gave. Trading stocks is not easy for beginners or professionals, it is really very hard and requires a lot of attention and knowledge. If stock trading was easy, everyone would be doing it. You can be successful at the stock market, with patience, discipline and a good trade set-up. The key objective is to make money and not lose it.
